BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) can modulate cell survival and memory processing. The involvement of specific nAChR subtypes in downstream signalling events has been ill defined thus far, because of a lack of subtype-selective ligands. In this study, we investigated activation and modulation of alpha7 nAChR-mediated(More)
Gallic acid is a trihydroxybenzoic acid, also known as 3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoic acid, which is present in plants worldwide, including Chinese medicinal herbs. Gallic acid has been shown to have cytotoxic effects in certain cancer cells, without damaging normal cells. The objective of the present study was to determine whether gallic acid is able to inhibit(More)
Interferon (IFN)-γ is a potent proinflammatory molecule. However, few studies have investigated the expression levels of IFN-γ during pelvic organ prolapse (POP). In the present study, the expression levels and tissue localization of IFN-γ and its pathway‑associated genes were detected in the vaginal walls of premenopausal females with POP and asymptomatic(More)
