Oxidative damage plays a key role in causation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases. Inhibition of oxidative stress represents one of the most effective ways in treating human neurologic diseases. Herein, we evaluated the protective effect of curcumin on PC12 cells against H2O2-induced neurotoxicity and investigated its underlying mechanism. The(More)
Jatropha curcas is an economically important plant in terms of its seed oil. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this plant response to light signals are unknown. One group of DNA-binding with one finger (Dof) transcription factor genes exhibits circadian rhythms and plays a crucial role in the control of flowering time by photoperiod perception in(More)
To understand the responses of rice seedlings to different high-temperature stresses, seven-day-old rice seedlings were exposed to different high temperatures for 48 h, and the maximal quantum yield of PS II photochemistry measurements, ascorbate peroxidase activity assays and proteomic analyses in leaf tissue were performed. The results showed that when(More)
Recommended by Katica Hedrih This study develops an improved inventory model to help the enterprises to advance their profit increasing and cost reduction in a single vendor single-buyer environment with general demand curve, adjustable production rate, and imperfect reworking process under permissible delay in payments. For advancing practical use in a(More)
The purpose of the present study was to explore the roles of Bcl-2 and Caspase-3 in mouse cortex in hypoxic preconditioning. Blb/c mice were randomly divided into three groups: control group, hypoxic group and hypoxic preconditioning group. Fluorescence intensity of Bcl-2 and Caspase-3 was observed and number of positive cells was counted in parietal cortex(More)
Enhanced salt tolerance of rice seedlings by abscisic acid (ABA) pretreatment was observed from phenotypic and physiological analyses. Total proteins from rice roots treated with ABA plus subsequent salt stress were analyzed by using proteomics method. Results showed that, 40 protein spots were uniquely upregulated in the seedlings under the condition of(More)
Carnosine (β-alanyl-l-histidine) has been demonstrated to provide antioxidative and anti-apoptotic roles in the animal of ischemic brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases. The aim of this study was to examine whether carnosine prevents subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH)-induced early brain injury (EBI) in rats. We found that intraperitoneal administration(More)
Activation of metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) provided neuroprotection in multiple central nervous system injury, but the roles of mGluR5 in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) remain unclear. In present study, we aimed to evaluate whether activation of mGluR5 attenuates early brain injury (EBI) after experimental SAH in rats. We found that selective(More)
