The effects of inspiratory muscle (IM) warm-up on IM function and on the maximum distance covered in a subsequent incremental badminton-footwork test (FWmax) were examined. Ten male badminton players were recruited to perform identical tests in three different trials in a random order. The control trial did not involve an IM warm-up, whereas the placebo and(More)

Tightly regulated Ca(2+) homeostasis is a prerequisite for proper cardiac function. To dissect the regulatory network of cardiac Ca(2+) handling, we performed a chemical suppressor screen on zebrafish tremblor embryos, which suffer from Ca(2+) extrusion defects. Efsevin was identified based on its potent activity to restore coordinated contractions in(More)
l-dopa-l-Tyr was synthesized by Fmoc solid-phase peptide synthesis, purified by reversed-phase HPLC and characterized by using 1H, 13C NMR and ESI–MS analyses. The interaction of l-dopa-l-Tyr and l-dopa with ctDNA has been investigated respectively by UV–vis absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy. The results showed that both l-dopa and l-dopa-l-Tyr(More)
Previous studies have confirmed that oxidized adenosine triphosphate, a P2X7 receptor antagonist, attenuates lipopolysaccharide-mediated microglial activation and inflammatory expression following neuronal damage in rat brain. NaCl and temperature may affect the potency of oxidized adenosine triphosphate. Brilliant blue G is a derivative of a widely used(More)
