Up-Regulated Expression of Advanced Glycation End-Products and Their Receptor in the Small Intestine and Colon of Diabetic Rats
TLDR
The expression of AGE and RAGE is up-regulated in the small intestine and colon of diabetic rats and the increased AGEand RAGE levels may contribute to diabetic GI dysfunction.
Regional surface geometry of the rat stomach based on three-dimensional curvature analysis.
TLDR
An analytic method based on medical imaging data was developed in this study to describe the three-dimensional rat stomach geometry and tension distribution and found that the radii of curvature in the glandular stomach were larger than those in the non-glandular region when the pressure increased.
Three-dimensional surface model analysis in the gastrointestinal tract.
TLDR
The 3-D anatomical model was constructed from digital images using ultrasonography, computer tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, and mathematical algorithms were developed for surface analysis based on thin-walled structure and the finite element method was applied for the mucosa-folded three layered esophageal model analysis.
Morphometric and Biomechanical Intestinal Remodeling Induced by Fasting in Rats
TLDR
Significant biomechanical and structural remodeling occurred in the small intestine during fasting for up to one week, and it can be predicted that the smooth muscle contractile function will also change.
Upregulation of SDF-1 is Associated with Atherosclerosis Lesions Induced by LDL Concentration Polarization
TLDR
Results suggested LDL concentration polarization contributed to the localization of atherosclerosis and to the expression of SDF-1, which facilitated plaque formation.
