The aim of this study was to investigate the role of connexin 43 (Cx43) and its hemichannel (HC1) in the death of astrocytes following ischemia/reperfusion (IR) or oxygen–glucose deprivation/reoxygenation (OGDR) insult. Wistar rats had their bilateral common carotid artery clamped for 1.5 h followed by 0, 4, and 24 h of reperfusion (n = 8 for each time(More)
Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among children. Two recent genome-wide association studies and several replicated studies have provided convincing evidence that inherited genetic variation in ARID5B contributes to childhood ALL predisposition. In the present study, we performed a meta-analysis to(More)
Wistar rat pups had the left common carotid artery cut, and they were exposed to 8% oxygen with free access to food and water until they were killed at 1, 12, 24, and 48 hours after the hypoxia–ischemia (HI) insult. Connexin 43 (Cx43), hemichannel (HC1), and caspase 3 (Casp3) in cerebral HI tissues were examined by immunohistochemistry and Western blot(More)
