Several studies indicated that Erythropoietin (Epo) may provide remarkable neuroprotection in some neurological diseases. It also showed the significant decrease of Epo immunoreactivity in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus in aged rats, suggesting the role of Epo in the pathogenesis of age-related neurodegenerative diseases such as AD. The protective(More)
Neuropathological studies have demonstrated that the presence of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) is one of the most prominent pathologic characteristics of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The microtubule-associated protein tau is the major component of NFTs, and its abnormal hyperphosphorylation leads to the destabilization of microtubules, impaired axonal(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain the recombinant Eotaxin N Terminal Mutant (Met/Eotaxin) adenovirus, and to study its role in allergic diseases. METHODS A 400 bp DNA fragment of Eotaxin was cloned from human peripheral blood monocyte (PBMC), and the Met/Eotaxin DNA fragment was obtained by NH2-terminal mutant. Then, this DNA fragment was inserted into AdEasy transfer(More)
Although the possibility of developing cardiac steroids/cardiac glycosides as novel cancer therapeutic agents has been recognized, the mechanism of their anticancer activity is still not clear enough. Toad venom extract containing bufadienolides, which belong to cardiac steroids, has actually long been used as traditional Chinese medicine in clinic for(More)
