The potential biodegradation of crude oil was assessed based on the development of a fermentative process with a strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa which produced 15.4 g/L rhamnolipids when cultured in a basal mineral medium using glycerol as a sole carbon source. However, neither cell growth nor rhamnolipid production was observed in the comparative culture(More)
CYP2C19 and CYP2E1 show great genetic differences between Orientals and Caucasians. The objective of this study was to investigate the genotype and allele distribution patterns of CYP2C19 and CYP2E1 polymorphisms among healthy participants in mainland Chinese Kazakh, Uygur and Han populations by the PCR–restriction fragment length polymorphism technique.(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are considered to mediate the inflammatory reaction, which are involved in the pathophysiological processes of cerebral ischemia injury. To elucidate the possible role of inflammatory reaction and TLR2/4 signaling pathway in cerebral ischemia, in the present study, we explored the spatio-temporal distribution of inflammatory(More)
BACKGROUND Cytokine production in the host immune response after transplantation may contribute to the variable CYP3A-dependent drug disposition. We investigated the effect of TNF-alpha, IL-10, CYP3A5 and ABCB1 polymorphisms on immunosuppressant tacrolimus pharmacokinetics in liver transplant patients. METHODS Genetic polymorphisms in TNF-alpha, IL-10,(More)
This study investigated the effect of berberine on the early phase of hepatocarcinogenesis stimulated by diethylnitrosamine (DEN, 150 mg/kg, 4 weeks) plus phenobarbital (PB, 75 mg/kg, 7 days) in rats. The expressions of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) were evaluated by immunohistochemistry. The activities(More)
In the present study, we established an in vitro culture system suitable for generating fertilizable oocytes from premeiotic mouse female germ cells. These results were achieved after first establishing an in vitro culture system allowing immature oocytes from 12-14 day-old mice to reach meiotic maturation through culture onto preantral granulosa cell(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used in many consumer products, interferes with the endocrine system of mammals, including humans. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of BPA on spermatogenesis and semen quality. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of BPA on mouse spermatogenesis. CD1 mice were used in all experiments.(More)
OBJECTIVE To probe into the mechanism of pneumothorax caused by acupuncture or acupoint injection and the preventive methods. METHODS Retrospectively analyze the clinical original symptoms of 38 cases with pneumothorax caused by acupuncture and acupoint injection, which were divided into four clinical types: dyspnea type, shock type, thoracalgia type and(More)
Aging is usually associated with a progressive disruption of the redox balance leading to recurrent damage resulting from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress resulting from excessive free-radical release is likely implicated in the initiation and progression of motor behavior disorders. Therefore, antioxidant therapies have received considerable attention in(More)
Zearalenone (ZEA) is an estrogenic mycotoxin mainly produced as a secondary metabolite by numerous species of Fusarium. Previous work showed that ZEA had a negative impact on domestic animals with regard to reproduction. The adverse effects and the mechanisms of ZEA on mammalian ovarian folliculogenesis remain largely unknown, particularly its effect on(More)
