A Role for VEGF as a Negative Regulator of Pericyte Function and Vessel Maturation
Angiogenesis does not only depend on endothelial cell invasion and proliferation: it also requires pericyte coverage of vascular sprouts for vessel stabilization. These processes are coordinated byExpand

Microbial communities in the larval midgut of laboratory and field populations of cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera).
We compared the bacterial communities in the larval midgut of field and laboratory populations of a polyphagous pest, the cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera), using denaturing gradient gelExpand

DNA Barcoding and Species Boundary Delimitation of Selected Species of Chinese Acridoidea (Orthoptera: Caelifera)
We tested the performance of DNA barcoding in Acridoidea and attempted to solve species boundary delimitation problems in selected groups using COI barcodes. Three analysis methods were applied toExpand

RNA interference‐mediated silencing of the bursicon gene induces defects in wing expansion of silkworm
We studied the role of the bursicon gene in wing expansion. First, we investigated its expression at different developmental stages in the silkworm, Bombyx mori. Bursicon gene was expressed at lowExpand

Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Expression and Gene Copy Number in the Risk of Oral Cancer
Leukoplakia is the most common premalignant lesion of the oral cavity. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) abnormalities are associated with oral tumorigenesis and progression. We hypothesizedExpand

Astragaloside IV ameliorates renal injury in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats through inhibiting NF-κB-mediated inflammatory genes expression.
Accumulating evidence suggests that inflammatory processes are involved in the development of diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, there are no effective interventions for inflammation in the diabeticExpand

RINX(VSX1), a novel homeobox gene expressed in the inner nuclear layer of the adult retina.
The locus control region (LCR) of the human red and green visual pigment genes is critical for the formation of functional red and green cones in the retina. A 37-bp core of the LCR is perfectlyExpand

Comparison of Test Methods for Measuring Water Vapor Permeability of Fabrics
There are a variety of test methods in use to measure the ability of fabrics to transport water vapor. They vary with respect to construction mechanisms, test conditions, and measurement parameters.Expand

Review of materials and processing methods used in the production of bipolar plates for fuel cells
Abstract The bipolar plate is by weight, volume and cost one of the most significant components of a fuel cell stack. The existence or creation of materials to produce bipolar plates which meet allExpand

Astragaloside IV, a Novel Antioxidant, Prevents Glucose-Induced Podocyte Apoptosis In Vitro and In Vivo
Glucose-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) production initiates podocyte apoptosis, which represents a novel early mechanism leading to diabetic nephropathy (DN). Here, we tested the hypothesisExpand
