G-protein modulation of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) channels in rat intrinsic cardiac ganglia was examined using dialyzed whole-cell and excised membrane patch-recording configurations. Cell dialysis with GTPgammaS increased the agonist affinity of nAChRs, resulting in a potentiation of nicotine-evoked whole-cell currents at low(More)
AIMS This study investigated whether anticerebral ischemia new drug, l-3-n-butylphthalide (l-NBP), improved behavioral recovery and enhanced hippocampal neurogenesis after cerebral ischemia in rats. METHODS AND RESULTS The middle cerebral artery of rats was blocked for 2 h. The daily oral administrations of 30 mg/kg l-NBP or vehicle were begun from the(More)
In this study, the memory and learning impairment induced by dexamethasone in young mice and senescent mice were evaluated by step-down inhibitory avoidance task and passive avoidance test. Colorimetric MTT(tetrazole 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl-)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay and TUNEL staining were used to investigate the influence of(More)
BACKGROUND The offspring of women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are prone to macrosomia. However, birth weight is difficult to be correctly estimated by ultrasound because of fetal asymmetric growth characteristics. This study aimed to investigate the correlations between fetal hemodynamics, fetal growth indices in late pregnancy, and birth(More)
UNLABELLED Objective. To explore the potential effects of methanol and its metabolite, formic acid, on rat retina function. Methods. Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3- and 7-day groups and a control. Experimental groups were given methanol and the control group were provided saline by gavage. Retinal function of each group was assessed by(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the correlativity between the projected visual chart vision ("projector vision" in this paper) and the measured values of contrast vision, and to explore the application of contrast vision in identifying visual impairment after eye injury in the clinical forensic medicine. METHODS One hundred and twenty nine eyes of seventy-nine young(More)
Multifocal visual electrophysiology, consisting of multifocal electroretinography (mfERG) and multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP), can objectively evaluate retina function and retina-cortical conduction pathway status by stimulating many local retinal regions and obtaining each local response simultaneously. Having many advantages such as short(More)

BACKGROUND The origin of extraordinarily rich biodiversity in tropical forests is often attributed to evolution under stable climatic conditions over a long period or to climatic fluctuations during the recent Quaternary period. Here, we test these two hypotheses using Dracaena cambodiana, a plant species distributed in paleotropical forests. METHODS WE(More)
