Inflammation plays a key role in the progression of intervertebral disk (IVD) herniation and associated low back pain. However, real-time spatial diagnosis of inflammation associated with acute disk herniation has not been investigated. We sought to detect local neutrophil and macrophage infiltration near disk herniation via the formyl peptide receptor 1(More)
It has been demonstrated that preconditioning with 1.5 % isoflurane reduces hypoxia/ischemia (HI)-induced brain loss/injury in neonatal rats. Ca2+ influx mediated by α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid receptors (AMPARs) is involved in HI-induced neuronal death. Here, we investigated the effective concentrations and time windows for(More)
A novel type I ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP), designated as curcin C, was purified from Jatropha curcas, an important feedback source of bio-fuel. Molecular mass and isoelectric point of curcin C were 31.398 kDa and 7.12 as detected by MALTI-TOF assay and capillary electrophoresis assay, respectively. N-terminal sequence and LC–MS/MS analyses(More)
Tissue engineering provides a promising approach to treat degenerative disc disease, which usually requires a large quantity of seed cells. A simple and reliable in vitro culture system to expand seed cells in a timely fashion is necessary to implement the application clinically. Here, we sought to establish a cost-effective culture system for expanding(More)
The present study aimed to evaluate the analgesic effect of the antioxidant nanoparticle fullerol in a mouse radiculopathy and a dorsal root ganglion (DRG) culture models. Intervertebral disk degeneration causes significant hyperalgesia and nerve inflammation. Pain sensitization and inflammatory reaction were counteracted by fullerol when disk material was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical characteristics of Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients with constipation and explore the correlation between constipation and motor symptoms. METHODS The demographic data of outpatients with PD in our hospital was collected. According to Rome Ⅲ criteria, we evaluated the status of constipation in PD patients. Unified(More)
Antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects of trimetallic nitride endohedral fullerenes carboxyl-Gd3N@C80, a newly developed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent, were investigated. All hydrochalarone and carboxyl-functionalized fullerenes showed effective radical (hydroxyl and superoxide anion) scavenging, whereas the carboxyl-Gd3N@C80 more(More)
Differential diagnosis of chronic post-traumatic osteomyelitis (CPO) from aseptic inflammation remains challenging, since both pathological processes share similar clinical symptoms. Here we utilized a novel targeted metallofullerene nanoparticle based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) probe IL-13-TAMRA-Gd3N@C80(OH)30(CH2CH2COOH)20 to detect CPO in mouse(More)

An autosomal-recessive inactivating mutation R272Q in the human intestinal cell kinase (ICK) gene caused profound multiplex developmental defects in human endocrine-cerebro-osteodysplasia (ECO) syndrome. ECO patients exhibited a wide variety of skeletal abnormalities, yet the underlying mechanisms by which ICK regulates skeletal development remained largely(More)
