Carvedilol, a nonselective β-adrenoreceptor antagonist, protects against myocardial injury induced by acute myocardium infarction (AMI). The mechanisms underlying the anti-fibrotic effects of carvedilol are unknown. Recent studies have revealed the critical role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in a variety of cardiovascular diseases. This study investigated whether(More)
BACKGROUND YKL-40, a proposed marker of inflammation and endothelial dysfunction, is associated with atherosclerosis and an increased cardiovascular mortality in the general population. However, the relationship between YKL-40 and arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients has not been adequately assessed. METHODS The relationship between serum levels of(More)
Antifreeze protein (AFP) can help organisms survive from freezing condition by thermal hysteresis activity to control ice growth and by recrystallization inhibition activity to inhibit recrystallization of ice granules, respectively. By bioinformatics methods especially protein docking, the newly developed models of surface complementarity were used to(More)
Agricultural management plays an important role in the storage of carbon in soils. The behavior of soil CO2 in an Andisol in two different tillage systems (no tillage and tillage) was studied. Soil-column incubation experiments were performed for a period of 150 days to conduct this study. Soil CO2 flux, under no-tillage and tillage treatments, was observed(More)
