This case-control study explored the relationship between early recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) and the expression of two genes: VEGFA, the gene encoding vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); and fms-related tyrosine kinase 1 (FLT1), the gene encoding the soluble VEGF receptor-1 (sFlt-1). Women experiencing RSA or undergoing induced abortions in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius L.) purportedly alleviates menopause symptoms because of putative estrogenicity.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation of nanoparticle trivalent chromium on nutrient utilization, growth performance and serum traits of broilers. This study included two trials. In trial 1, 32 three-week-old broilers were divided into four groups: the control, chromium chloride (CrCl3), chromium picolinate (CrPic)(More)
Most currently used insecticides are neurotoxic chemicals that target a limited number of sites and insect cholinergic neurotransmission is the major target. A potential target for insecticide development is the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR), which is a metabotropic G-protein-coupled receptor. Insects have A- and B-type mAChRs and the five(More)
