The most effective way to contain cerebral ischemic injury is reperfusion; however, reperfusion itself may result in tissue injury, for which inflammatory damage is one of the main causative factors. NALP3 inflammasome is a multiprotein complex. It consists of NALP3, ASC, and caspase-1, whose function is to switch on the inflammatory process. Chrysophanol(More)
Pericentrin, a conserved centrosomal component, provides the structural scaffold to anchor numerous centrosomal proteins, and thus plays an essential role in the organization and function of the centrosome and the mitotic spindle. Although pericentrin was shown to localize in the cytoplasm and reported to be sensitive to leptomycin B (LMB), a specific(More)
The effect of geometrical asymmetry β (described by the length-diameter ratio of rods) on the rod-coil diblock copolymer phase behavior is studied by implementation of self-consistent field theory (SCFT) in three-dimensional (3D) position space while considering the rod orientation on the spherical surface. The phase diagrams at different geometrical(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Naoxintong (NXT), a renowned traditional Chinese medicine in China, has been used for the treatment of acute and chronic cardio-cerebrovascular diseases in clinic for more than 20 years. AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the potential neuroprotective effect of NXT against ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice and investigate(More)
