Previous data proved that NSF* was an epilepsy related gene (ERG1). In this study, using phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotide (PS-ODN), an antisense of NSF to downregulate the function of NSF in vitro cultured hippocampus neurons and PC12, this treatment simultaneously induced enhancement of the neurite outgrowth of hippocampal neurons and PC12, a… (More)
The antinociceptive effect of interleukin-2 gene on rat carrageenan-induced pain was explored using different delivery methods. Intrathecal (i.t.) or plantar s.c. delivery of plasmid harbouring the interleukin-2 gene produced a marked antinociceptive effect, which was maintained up to 6 days; the administration of recombinant human interleukin-2 only had a… (More)
BACKGROUND In previously published studies, oncolytic adenovirus-mediated gene therapy has produced good results in targeting cancer cells. However, safety and efficacy, the two most important aspects in cancer therapy, remain serious challenges. The specific expression or deletion of replication related genes in an adenovirus has been frequently utilized… (More)
One hypothesis for the etiology of Parkinson's disease (PD) is that the formation of proteinaceous inclusion, which is mainly composed of alpha-synuclein, may contribute to the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons. To further explore the role of alpha-synuclein in neurodegeneration of PD, we examined the possible effects of aggregated alpha-synuclein on… (More)
A series of novel IMB-070593 derivatives containing a substituted benzyloxime moiety and displaying a remarkable improvement in lipophilicity were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antimycobacterial and antibacterial activity. Our results reveal that the target compounds 19a-m have considerable Gram-positive activity (MIC: <0.008-32 µg/mL),… (More)
The title compound, C(8)H(18)N(4)O(2) (2+)·2Cl(-), contains two oxime groups. The methyl oxime group has a Z configuration, and the ethyl oxime group is disordered, with both Z and E configurations in occupancies of 0.840 (8) and 0.160 (8), respectively. In the crystal structure, there are a number of N-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds.
