Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the most common chronic diseases in China. This aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of CVDs and risk factors in Chinese impaired glucose regulation subjects.We used a multistage, stratified sampling method to select subjects from the general Chinese population aged 20 years and older. Subjects underwent an(More)
Our previous studies have shown that microRNA-383 (miR-383) expression is downregulated in the testes of infertile men with maturation arrest (MA). Abnormal testicular miR-383 expression may potentiate the connections between male infertility and testicular germ cell tumors. However, the mechanisms underlying the targeting and functions of miR-383 during(More)
To investigate the effect of forced running in motor-driven wheel on neurogenesis in the hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG) of adult rats, 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU), a thymidine analog was applied to mark cell proliferation. Neuroepthelial stem cell protein (nestin) expression was used to identify neural stem/precursor cells. The BrdUand nestin-positive(More)
Kir1.1 (ROMK1) is inhibited by hypercapnia and intracellular acidosis with midpoint pH for channel inhibition (pK(a)) of approximately 6.7. Another close relative, Kir4.1 (BIR10), is also pH sensitive with much lower pH sensitivity (pK(a) approximately 6. 0), although it shares a high sequence homology with Kir1.1. To find the molecular determinants for the(More)
PURPOSE Advanced imaging techniques have been developed to facilitate patient setup and target localization for advanced prostate radiotherapy. These techniques work well for translational, interfractional organ motion but may Result in poor target coverage for some cases where the effects of rotational motion and organ deformation are not corrected.
