We investigated whether Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent kinase II (CaMKII) and calcineurin (CaN) are involved in myocardial hypertrophy induced by tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). The cardiomyocytes of neonatal Wistar rats (1-2 days old) were cultured and stimulated by TNF-α (100 μg/L), and Ca2+ signal transduction was blocked by several antagonists, including(More)
The complete genome sequence of a novel duck orthoreovirus, designated DRV strain TH11(DRV-TH11), was determined and characterized. The DRV-TH11 genome is comprised of 23,417 bp and its genome organization is more similar to that of avian orthoreoviruses (ARVs) of chicken origin than other reoviruses. The results of comparative sequence analysis and(More)
Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) results in high mortality. This is partly because of early multiple organ dysfunction syndromes that are usually caused by systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Many studies have reported the beneficial effects of emodin against SAP with SIRS. However, the exact mechanism underlying the effect of emodin remains(More)
