Trimethyltin chloride (TMT) has been known as a classic neurotoxicant which can cause serious neuronal degeneration diseases. Nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) signaling pathways play pivotal role in the central nerves system. In the present study, the intracellular pathways involved in TMT-induced apoptosis on human(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of deltamethrin on intracellular free Ca2+ concentration and apoptosis in rat neural cells. METHODS Wister rats were randomly divided into 4 groups(3 treated groups and 1 control). Intracellular free Ca2+ concentration in rat neural cells was measured by using the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator Fura-2/AM. Apopotic rate of neural(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the toxicity of methomyl to acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in different regions. METHODS The optimal temperature and time for measurement of AChE activity were determined in vitro. The dose- and time-response relationships of methomyl with AChE activity in human erythrocyte membrane, rat erythrocyte membrane, cortical synapses, cerebellar(More)
BACKGROUND Bariatric surgery remains the most effective treatment for reducing adiposity and eliminating type 2 diabetes; however, the mechanism(s) responsible have remained elusive. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR) encompass a family of nuclear hormone receptors that upon activation exert control of lipid metabolism, glucose regulation(More)
