BACKGROUND Recent studies indicate that Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGF β) correlated with pulmonary metastasis of cancers. However, the correlation between TGF β and pulmonary metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is till unknown. METHODS We detected the in vitro and in vivo expression levels of TGF β1/Smads by Real-time PCR and Western blot(More)
Dopamine receptor 1 (D1R) plays an essential role in regulating respiratory activity in mammals, however, little is known about how this receptor acts to modulate the basic respiratory rhythmogenesis. Here, by simultaneously recording the discharge activities of biphasic expiratory (biphasic E) neurons/inspiratory (I) neurons and the XII nerve rootlets from(More)
The study aims to identify the role of cAMP-PKA pathway in the group Ⅱ metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs)-mediated regulation of respiratory rhythm from the brainstem slice. Neonatal (aged 0-3 d) Sprague-Dawley rats of either sex were used. The brainstem slice containing the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) and the hypoglossal nerve(More)
One of the hottest research topics is how to reduce energy consumption to prolong the lifetime of a WSN. Some nodes of a WSN may be isolated from others, particularly when all their neighbors have crashed or run out of energy, and are thus no longer helpful in collecting and relaying messages, even though their batteries still retain some level of energy.(More)
