It has been strongly suggested that two factors are involved in the development of Kaschin–Beck Disease (KBD), namely grains contamination with T-2 toxin and selenium deficiency. So our team undertook a survey about grains and drinking water in three rural KBD endemic villages and one non-KBD village in Qinghai Province. The level of T-2 toxin contamination(More)
There is a close relationship between selenium deficiency and Kaschin–Beck disease (KBD). Although the etiology of KBD is not known and selenium deficiency is not its actual cause, it is an important environmental risk factor. In particular, in the Qing-Tibet Plateau, a selenium-deficient region, the prevalence of KBD is serious and still increasing and(More)
Airway smooth muscle (ASM) is a key target cell in allergen-induced asthma known to contribute to airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and chronic airway remodeling. Changes in ASM calcium homeostasis have been shown to contribute to AHR although the mechanisms and Ca2+ signal effectors are incompletely understood. In the present study, we tested the function(More)
When the crypto-period is expired or the key is compromised, trusted third party (TTP) broadcasts the materials of key update. The method cannot guarantee that all the nodes access to key materials in time if nodes work on different spectrums in cognitive radio networks. This paper presents a new algorithm based on the logistic model (KULCR) which reduces(More)
The multifunctional Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II δ-isoform (CaMKIIδ) promotes vascular smooth muscle (VSM) proliferation, migration, and injury-induced vascular wall neointima formation. The objective of this study was to test if microRNA-30 (miR-30) family members are endogenous regulators of CaMKIIδ expression following vascular injury(More)
