1,2-Benzenedicarboxaldehyde-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-methyl (flavipin) was found to be antagonistic against nematodes and fungi. Here we demonstrated that flavipin is a potent antioxidant in vitro and in vivo, which has great potential in the therapy for free radical-associated diseases. Therefore, flavipin-producing bio-source was screened from 80 endophytes in(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play critical roles in cellular homeostasis. However, little is known about their effect in developing rat brains with hypoxic-ischemic brain damage (HIBD). To explore the expression and function of lncRNA in HIBD, we analyzed the expression profiles of lncRNAs in hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brains and sham control using microarray(More)
Human growth transformation dependent protein (HGTD-P) is a newly identified protein that promotes neuronal apoptosis in hypoxia-ischemia brain damage (HIBD) in neonatal rats. However, the mechanisms regulating HGTD-P expression are not clear. Here we describe microRNAs targeted to HGTD-P and examine their effects on regulating neuronal apoptosis in HIBD.(More)
PURPOSE The association of ischemic stroke and metabolic syndrome (MetSyn) with or without diabetes mellitus (DM) is not clear. The present study aimed to identify the impact of diabetes or hyperglycemia on the risk of MetSyn-associated ischemic stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study comprised an Asian population of 576 patients with acute nonembolic(More)
There is an urgent need to develop new anti-tuberculosis drugs due to the rising tendency in tuberculosis (TB) around the world. It is known that Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) generally infects mammalian host via aerosol route. The pathogenic process has been fully studied that it can initially invade alveolar macrophage, then established(More)
As recently indiscriminate abuse of existing antibiotics in both clinical and veterinary treatment leads to proliferation of antibiotic resistance in microbes and poses a dilemma for the future treatment of such bacterial infection, antimicrobial resistance has been considered to be one of the currently leading concerns in global public health, and reported(More)
We propose a novel ant-based alternate routing algorithm in the flexible bandwidth networks. Simulation results show that our algorithm outperforms other traditional algorithms by achieving a much lower blocking probability. 1. Introduction Flexible bandwidth optical networks based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology is(More)
Juvenile hormones (JHs) are essential sesquiterpenes that control insect development and reproduction. JH analog (JHA) insecticides such as methoprene are compounds that mimic the structure and/or biological activity of JH. In this study we obtained a full-length cDNA, cqjhe, from the southern house mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus that encodes CqJHE, an(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary injury is the main cause of death in acute paraquat (PQ) poisoning. However, whether quantitative lung computed tomography (CT) can be useful in predicting the outcome of PQ poisoning remains unknown. We aimed to identify early findings of quantitative lung CT as predictors of outcome in acute PQ poisoning. METHODS Lung CT scanning(More)
Platinum-based chemotherapy toxicity is always one of the serious problems from which lung cancer patients suffer. The genetic polymorphism of WISP1 was revealed to be associated with susceptibility and platinum-based chemotherapy response in our previous studies. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship of WISP1 genetic polymorphisms with(More)
