  • 1 September 2010
The lipidic structures, anther cuticle (outer anther surface) and pollen exine (outer pollen wall), play a key protective role for the male gametophyte and pollen grain development. We recentlyExpand

Role of CSPG receptor LAR phosphatase in restricting axon regeneration after CNS injury
Extracellular matrix molecule chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs) are highly upregulated in scar tissues and form a potent chemical barrier for CNS axon regeneration. Recent studies supportExpand

Myocardial atrophy and chronic mechanical unloading of the failing human heart: implications for cardiac assist device-induced myocardial recovery.
BACKGROUND In animal models of heterotopic transplantation, mechanical unloading of the normal, nonhypertrophic heart results in atrophy. Primarily on the basis of these animal data, the notion thatExpand

AMP-activated protein kinase regulates the vacuolar H+-ATPase via direct phosphorylation of the A subunit (ATP6V1A) in the kidney.
The vacuolar H(+)-ATPase (V-ATPase) in intercalated cells contributes to luminal acidification in the kidney collecting duct and nonvolatile acid excretion. We previously showed that the A subunit inExpand

Filamentation of Metabolic Enzymes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Compartmentation via filamentation has recently emerged as a novel mechanism for metabolic regulation. In order to identify filament-forming metabolic enzymes systematically, we performed aExpand

Height and prevalence of hypertension in a middle-aged and older Chinese population
Evidence from epidemiological studies reported that height was inversely associated with cardiovascular diseases, but the association between height and hypertension was unclear. The purpose of thisExpand

AMPK couples plasma renin to cellular metabolism by phosphorylation of ACC1.
Salt reabsorption is the major energy-requiring process in the kidney, and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an important regulator of cellular metabolism. Mice with targeted deletion of theExpand

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) reduces neuronal injury in a rat model of global cerebral ischemia
INTRODUCTION Many studies report an inverse correlation between levels of DHEA and neurological diseases. Exogenous DHEA protects hippocampal neurons against excitatory amino acid inducedExpand

Nanoparticle Orientation to Control RNA Loading and Ligand Display on Extracellular Vesicles for Cancer Regression
Nanotechnology offers many benefits, and here we report an advantage of applying RNA nanotechnology for directional control. The orientation of arrow-shaped RNA was altered to control ligand displayExpand

Morphological features and electrophysiological properties of serotonergic and non-serotonergic projection neurons in the dorsal raphe nucleus: An intracellular recording and labeling study in rat
The morphology and electrophysiological properties of serotonergic and non-serotonergic projection neurons in the dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN) of the rat were examined in frontal brain slices. BiocytinExpand
