In this study, we investigated the influence of β-asarone, the major ingredient of Acorus tatarinowii Schott, on depressive-like behavior induced by the chronic unpredictable mild stresses (CUMS) paradigm and to clarify the underlying mechanisms. The results show that β-asarone treatment partially reversed the CUMS-induced depression-like behaviors in both(More)

The existing chaos optimization algorithms were almost based on Logistic map. However, the probability density function of chaotic sequences for Logistic map is a Chebyshev type function, which may affect the global searching capacity and computational efficiency of chaos optimization algorithm. In this paper, firstly, a new chaotic sequences with Skew Tent(More)
Large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been conducted and reported the association between rs999737 polymorphism at 14q24.1 (RAD51L1) and breast cancer risk. Following studies investigated rs999737 polymorphism in European and Asian populations. However, some of these studies reported weak and no significant association. Here, we(More)
This study evaluated the effects of dietary cholesterol on antioxidant capacity, non-specific immune response and resistance to Aeromonas hydrophila in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fed soybean meal-based diets. Fish were fed diets supplemented with graded cholesterol levels (0 [control], 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, and 1.5%) for nine weeks. The fish were(More)
Glaucoma is a common eye disease in the aged population and has severe consequences. The present study examined the therapeutic effects of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (BMSC) transplantation in preventing loss of visual function in aged rats with glaucoma caused by laser-induced ocular hypertension. We found that BMSCs promoted survival of retinal(More)
Human Wharton's jelly mesenchymal stem cells were isolated from fetal umbilical cord. Cells were cultured in serum-free neural stem cell-conditioned medium or neural stem cell-conditioned medium supplemented with Dkk-1, a Wnt/β catenin pathway antagonist, and LeftyA, a Nodal signaling pathway antagonist to induce differentiation into retinal progenitor(More)
The physiological mechanisms of thermogenesis, energy balance and energy expenditure are poorly understood in poultry. The aim of this study was designed to investigate the physiological roles of avian uncoupling protein (avUCP) regulating in energy balance and thermogenesis by using three chicken breeds of existence striking genetic difference and feeding(More)
Autoimmune uveitis is an intraocular inflammatory disorder in developed countries. Understanding the mechanisms underlying the development and modulation of immune reaction in uveitic eyes is critical for designing therapeutic interventions. Here we investigated the role of Notch signalling in regulatory T-cell (Treg cell) function during experimental(More)
Some new members of amino acid ionic liquids (ILs) with glutamic acid (Glu) cation were studied. GluBF4, GluCl, GluNO3, and Glu2SO4 were synthesized using the one-step microwave synthesis method, and their physicochemical properties, including the IR spectrum, melting point, conductivity, solubility, and thermostability, were investigated in detail(More)
