Wallerian degeneration of the corticospinal tract (CST) after motor pathway ischemic stroke can be characterized by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). However, the dynamic evolution of the diffusion indices in the degenerated CST has not previously been completely identified. We investigated this dynamic evolution and the relationship between early changes of(More)
This study was to examine the effects of treadmill exercise on the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in rat hippocampus. After 1-wk treadmill familiarization, animals in exercise groups received a 4-wk exercise training or an acute exercise. They were sacrificed 2 h or 2 d after exercise and their hippocampal BDNF mRNA and protein(More)
In this paper we address sequence estimation when the In-terSymbol Interference (ISI) communication channel is unknown and time varying. We employ a Maximum A Posterior (MAP) approach, in which the unknown channel parameters are assigned a distribution and integrated out. For several channel models of interest we describe both the exact MAP estimator and(More)
Livestock grazing has the potential to substantially alter carbon (C) storage in grassland ecosystem. In this study, we evaluated the soil-plant system C (0-30cm) under three different grazing intensities by yaks (light: 1.2, moderate: 2.0, and heavy: 2.9 yaks/ha) in alpine meadow on the eastern Tibetan Plateau. Soil organic C at 0-30cm depth and total(More)
Akt has been demonstrated as a survival kinase in brain after hypoxia-ischemia (HI). Previous studies have shown that glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β)/collapsin response mediator protein 2 (CRMP-2) signaling pathway could be regulated by Akt for axonal-dendritic polarity. CRMP-2 is associated also with microtubule-mediated trafficking. However, whether(More)
Four new metabolites, including three new oblongolides named C1, P1, and X1 (1-3) and 6-hydroxyphomodiol (10), along with eight known compounds--oblongolides B (4), C (5), D (6), O (7), P (8) and U (9), (3R,4aR,5S,6R)-6-hydroxy-5-methylramulosin (11), and (3R)-5-methylmellein (12)--were isolated from the endophytic fungal strain Phomopsis sp. XZ-01 of(More)
