In this study we performed a comprehensive analysis of the expression(More)
Dissociated primary cell cultures were derived from the cochlear nuclei (CN) of postnatal rats using standard techniques. Cultured cells differentiated morphologically, but their dendritic profiles were generally less specialized than those of CN cells in vivo. Physiologically, cultured cells could be divided into three classes: tonic, phasic and(More)
Activating synthetic ligands for peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ), such as pioglitazone, are commonly used to treat persons with diabetes mellitus with improvement of insulin resistance. Several reports have clearly demonstrated that PPARγ ligands could inhibit colorectal cancer cell growth and induce apoptosis. Meanwhile, aberrant(More)
