A rapid micropropagation system for Scabiosa tschiliensis Grunning, an ethnic medicinal plant, has been developed. Calluses were induced from leaf and petiole explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 2.0 mg l−1 thidiazuron and 0.5 mg l−1 2,4-dicholorophenoxyacetic acid. In this medium, callus induction rate was about 94.05 %.(More)
Efficient presentation of alien antigens triggers activation of T lymphocytes and robust host defense against invading pathogens. This pathophysiological process relies on the expression of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules in antigen presenting cells such as macrophages. Aberrant MHC II transactivation plays a crucial role in the(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate associations of total cholesterol (TC) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels with prognosis in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients with heart failure (HF).Patients who were angiographical-diagnosis of CHD and echocardiographical-diagnosis of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 45% were(More)
Prognostic significance of cytochrome P450 2C19*2 polymorphism in acute myocardial infarction is still not well investigated. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between the genetic polymorphism and the outcome of the acute myocardial infarction patients, and to further clarify the impact of smoking on such relationship. Six hundred acute(More)
An efficient callus proliferation system of Stellera chamaejasme was developed. The calli were initially induced by cultivating the leaf explants on the MS medium containing 1.0 mg·L−1 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D). The culture had its fresh and dry weights increased by about 29 and 25 times, respectively, through further cultivation on the MS(More)
