Currently, effective and specific diagnostic imaging of brain glioma is a major challenge. Nanomedicine plays an essential role by delivering the contrast agent in a targeted manner to specific tumor cells, leading to improvement in accurate diagnosis by good visualization and specific demonstration of tumor cells. This study investigated the preparation(More)
The etiology of Parkinson's disease (PD) is attributed to both environmental and genetic factors. The development of PD reportedly involves mitochondrial impairment, oxidative stress, α-synuclein aggregation, dysfunctional protein degradation, glutamate toxicity, calcium overloading, inflammation and loss of neurotrophic factors. Based on a link between(More)
Autophagy-mediated self-digestion of cytoplasmic inclusions may be protective against neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, excessive autophagic activation evokes autophagic programmed cell death. In this study, we aimed at exploring the role of autophagy in the pathogenesis of rotenone-induced cellular and animal models for(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) are both genetically determined and familial diseases that possess variable but overlapping genetic defects. Previous literature has mostly reported their occurrences as either separate disorders in different members of a family or coexisting entities in sporadic cases(More)
