Antifungal activities and chemical composition of some medicinal plants.
Investigation of the antifungal activities of the essential oils of some medicinal plants showed that natural antimicrobial substances are inexpensive and have fewer side effects, they convey potential for implementation in fungal pathogenic systems. Expand
Isoflurane Activates Sarcolemmal Adenosine Triphosphate-sensitive Potassium Channels in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells: A Role for Protein Kinase A
Analysis of expressed vascular-type KATP channels suggested that PKA-mediated phosphorylation of both Kir6.1 and SUR2B subunits plays a pivotal role in isoflurane-induced vascular KatP channel activation. Expand
Biodiesel production from Euphorbia tirucalli L.
Demand of renewable and clean energy to replace diesel world is big and urgent. However, edible crop oil as raw material is limited and its price is expensive and unstable. We want to look for newExpand
Differential Effects of Etomidate and Midazolam on Vascular Adenosine Triphosphate–sensitive Potassium Channels: Isometric Tension and Patch Clamp Studies
Investigation of the effects of two imidazoline-derived intravenous anesthetics on vascular adenosine triphosphate–sensitive potassium (KATP) channel activity found etomidate, but not midazolam, inhibit the KATP channel activity in vascular smooth muscle cells. Expand
Essential oil analysis and Antibacterial activities of some medicinal plants
The finding supported the notion that plant essential oils composition or total extract may have a role as pharmaceuticals and preservatives effects as safely and effective drugs with low resistance against microorganisms. Expand
Cobalt(III) Schiff base complexes derived from mesostilbenediamine: Synthesis, characterization, crystal structure, electrochemistry and antibacterial studies
Abstract Four new N2O2 type tetradentate Schiff base complexes of Co(III), [Co(Lx)(py)2]PF6 (CoLx, x = 1,3–4), and [CoNa(L2)(py)(OAc)(CH3CH(OH)CH3)(H2O)]ClO4·(CH3CH(OH)CH3), (CoNaL2), where Lxs areExpand
Synthesis, crystal structures and antibacterial studies of oxidovanadium(IV) complexes of salen-type Schiff base ligands derived from meso-1,2-diphenyl-1,2-ethylenediamine
A series of new derivatives and previously reported Schiff base ligands and their oxidovanadium(IV) complexes were synthesized, characterized and tested as potential antibacterial agents against fourExpand
Angiotensin II inhibits insulin-induced actin stress fiber formation and glucose uptake via ERK1/2.
It is concluded that Ang II negatively regulates the insulin signal not through MMP signaling pathway but specifically through M MP-independent ERK1/2 activation pathway, providing an alternative molecular mechanism for angiotensin-induced insulin resistance. Expand
Cortactin, an actin binding protein, regulates GLUT4 translocation via actin filament remodeling
The results suggest that the actin binding protein cortactin is required for actin stress fiber formation in muscle cells and that this process is absolutely required for translocation of GLUT4-containing vesicles to the plasma membrane. Expand
