Maternal separation (MS), which can lead to hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis dysfunction and behavioral abnormalities in rhesus monkeys, is frequently used to model early adversity. Whether this deleterious effect on monkeys is reversible by later experience is unknown. In this study, we assessed the basal hair cortisol in rhesus monkeys after 1.5 and 3(More)
Many studies showed that RhoC-GTPases are central molecules in oncogenic transformation. The expression of RhoC is significantly increased in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). HBV is the major risk factor for HCC. However, it is unknown whether HBV regulating RhoC expression. In this study, we showed the RhoC expression was significantly higher in HepG2.2.15(More)
Two novel 2-oxo-quinoline-3-carbaldehyde (4'-hydroxybenzoyl) hydrazone, thiosemicarbazone ligands and its corresponding Cu(2+) complexes were synthesized, and the two complexes' structures were determined by X-ray single crystal diffraction. The interaction of the two Cu(2+) complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated by electronic absorption(More)
Photoelectrochemical water splitting directly converts solar energy to chemical energy stored in hydrogen, a high energy density fuel. Although water splitting using semiconductor photoelectrodes has been studied for more than 40 years, it has only recently been demonstrated using dye-sensitized electrodes. The quantum yield for water splitting in these(More)
Two novel rare earth complexes, Y(III) complex (1) and Eu(III) complex (2), with naringenin-2-hydroxy benzoyl hydrazone ligand were synthesized and characterized. The interaction of the two metal complexes and the free ligand with calf thymus DNA (CT DNA) was investigated by electronic absorption spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy and viscosity(More)
In the article, a novel fluorescent probe for the copper cation based on fluorescence quenching mechanism was designed. It exhibited high selectivity for Cu(II) over other common metal ions in aqueous media. Furthermore the coordination between Cu(II) and the organic molecule sensor fabricated an interesting 1D chain coordination polymer framework.
The neutral mononuclear Ln(III) complexes (Ln = La, Sm) with 7-methoxychrom-one-3-carbaldehyde-isonicotinoyl hydrazone ligand (L) have been synthesized, characterized and investigated their interactions with calf-thymus DNA. The results show that the binding affinity of the La(III) complex is stronger than that of the Sm(III) complex and that of the ligand(More)
In animal societies, some stressful events can lead to higher levels of physiological stress. Such stressors, like social rank, also predict an increased vulnerability to an array of diseases. However, the physiological relationship between social rank and stress varies between different species, as well as within groups of a single species. For example,(More)
New [CuL.(H(2)O)(3)]NO(3).H(2)O and [NiL.H(2)O]NO(3).2H(2)O complexes with Schiff base (LNa) derived from 6-hydroxy-3-carbaldehyde chromone (CDC) and glycine are reported. Two complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR data, TG/DTA and molar conductivity. The binding of these two complexes to calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) has been investigated,(More)
Drosha regulates the biogenesis of microRNAs (miRNAs) and plays an essential role in the regulation of gene expression. Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) causes chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis. It is also a major risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma. Emerging evidence suggests that HBV alters miRNA expression profiles, but the mechanisms(More)
