Quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) is a sensitive technique for normalization of the gene expression level of target genes. Buffalograss (Buchloe dactyloides), a warm-season turfgrass with strong abiotic stress resistance, is widely used in North China. Up to now, no work was performed to evaluate the reference(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of Ginsenoside Rb1 (GRb1) on neuronal cell apoptosis and the expressions of Bcl-2 and Bax in rats after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion so as to investigate the neuroprotective mechanism of GRb1. METHDOS: The model of cerebral ischemia-reperfusion was established by occluding rat middle cerebral artery for 2 h. The rats were(More)
In experimental myocardial infarction (MI), a rise in cell counts of circulating monocyte subsets contributes to impaired myocardial healing and to atherosclerotic plaque destabilization. In humans, the prognostic role of monocyte subsets in patients suffering ST-elevation MI (STEMI) is still unclear. In the present study, we aimed to determine the kinetics(More)
Perennial ryegrass is an important turf grass and also used as a forage plant. However, abiotic stresses such as salt and drought are main limitations to its cultivation. In the present work, we cloned the gene encoding pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS) from Lolium perenne, which is responsible for proline biosynthesis. This gene had a coding(More)
Clonal plants could modify phenotypic responses to nutrients heterogeneously distributed both in space and time by physiological integration. It will take times to do phenotypic responses to modifications which are various in different growth periods. An optimal phenotype is reached when there is a match between nutrient conditions and foraging ability. A(More)
BACKGROUND Salt restriction, an important approach for primary and secondary prevention of hypertension, is undermined by unsatisfactory adherence. A salt-restriction study tested the efficacy and safety of a compound ion salt (CISalt) with low sodium content in an animal model and in a community-based population. METHODS In part 1, 8-week-old male(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between red cell volume distribution width (RDW) and cardiac function in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. METHODS We analyzed the baseline clinical data of 228 ACS patients consecutively admitted into our hospital according to the classification of RDW and NYHA function class. Correlation analysis was made(More)
BACKGROUND Measuring human monocyte subsets (CD14++CD16-, CD14++CD16+, and CD14 + CD16++) and subset-specific monocyte-platelet aggregates (MPA) is vulnerable to analytical bias due to unavailability of a standardized methodology. We aimed to address this issue by focusing on the impacts of time-delayed sample processing and measurement between two commonly(More)
To investigate potential clinical characteristics associated with discordance between platelet vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein phosphorylation (VASP-P) flow cytometry (FCM) assay and light transmission aggregometry (LTA) in defining high on-clopidogrel platelet reactivity (HPR) after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). In this study,(More)
With the rapid expansion of urbanization, the technology of wastewater treatment has an increasingly crucial role in the field of environmental protection science and technology. The technology of pulsed arc electrohydraulic discharge (PAED) has been studied in depth by virtue of its signally treatment effect, low power consumption, and so on. The(More)
