Catalase plays a major role in cellular antioxidant defense by decomposing hydrogen peroxide, thereby preventing the generation of hydroxyl radical by the Fenton reaction. The degree of catalase deficiency in acatalasemic and hypocatalasemic mice varies from tissue to tissue. They therefore may not be suitable for studying the function of this enzyme in(More)
Hyperphosphorylation of the microtubule-associated protein tau is a characteristic of Alzheimer brain tissue. Recent in vitro data suggest that mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), a proline-directed protein kinase, phosphorylates the sites on tau common to Alzheimer's disease. Using an okadaic acid-induced tau hyperphosphorylation model, we have tested(More)
To understand the physiological function of glutaredoxin, a thiotransferase catalyzing the reduction of mixed disulfides of protein and glutathione, we generated a line of knockout mice deficient in the cytosolic glutaredoxin 1 (Grx1). To our surprise, mice deficient in Grx1 were not more susceptible to acute oxidative insults in models of heart and lung(More)
The aim of this study was to validate the Chinese version of the Gumpel Readiness Inventory (RI). Participants included 653 preschool children aged three to five years old, their teachers and parents, and 49 children with developmental disabilities. Teachers and parents completed the RI and parents completed the Strength and Difficulty Questionnaire (SDQ)(More)
