For the purpose of investigating the long-term effects of seizures in neonatal rats on spatial learning ability and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor expression in adult rat brain, a seizure was induced by inhalant flurothyl daily in neonatal Wistar rats from postnatal day 6 (P6). The authors assigned six rats each averagely into the single-seizure(More)
The performance analysis of optimal decode-andforward (DF) relay selection for the full-duplex (FD) mode in underlay cognitive radio (CR) networks is studied, with the impact of critical parameters such as the residual selfinterference, the distributions of the received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and the outage probability, being analyzed. Different from(More)
This article presents a new enzyme-mimic activity of non-noble metal-based bimetallic Fe-Co NPs. This type of enzyme-mimic exhibits much higher affinity to H2O2 over other NPs-based peroxidase mimetics by at least one order of magnitude due to the synergistic effects between the two metals.
Chitosan stabilized silver nanoparticles (Ch-Ag NPs) were successfully synthesized by a one-step method and were found to possess intrinsic peroxidase-like activity, could catalytically oxidize substrates, such as TMB, and OPD, by H(2)O(2) to produce a typical colour reaction such as from colorless to blue for TMB and from colorless to red for OPD. Our(More)
OBJECTIVES It is well established that acute pancreatitis (AP) often causes diabetes mellitus. However, whether pre-existing diabetes is associated with the development of AP remains unknown. To clarify the association of pre-existing diabetes and the development of AP, we carried out a meta-analysis of observational studies. METHODS A computerized(More)
To study the long-term changes induced in immature rat cortical neuronal cultures by transient exposure to an Mg(2+)-free treatment, at cultured day 6, cells were assigned into three groups, based on the mediums they were transiently exposed to as follows: control group 1 (CONT1) was exposed to Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium (DMEM), control group 2 was(More)
Mitochondrial morphology is dynamically remodeled by fusion and fission in cells, and dysregulation of this process is closely implicated in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanism by which mitochondrial dynamics influence cancer cell survival is considerably less clear, especially in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study, we systematically(More)
Mitochondria are highly dynamic and undergo constant fusion and fission that are essential for maintaining physiological functions of cells. Recently, we have reported that increased mitochondrial fission promotes autophagy and apoptosis resistance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell through ROS-mediated coordinated regulation of NF-κB and p53 pathways.(More)
We reported a new application of silver nanoparticles (NPs) for the visual sensing of aromatic polyphenols, such as gallic acid, pyrogallol and tannic acid, which is based on the intensified plasmon absorbance signals and visual changes from yellow to orange due to hydrogen-bonding recognition and subsequent catalytic oxidation of the target phenols by(More)
A simple, one-step facile route for preparation of water soluble and fluorescent Cu nanoclusters (NCs) stabilized by tannic acid (TA) is described. The as-prepared TA capped Cu NCs (TA-Cu NCs) are characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, luminescence, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and X-ray(More)
