Iron oxide nanoparticles (INOPS) are a potential contrast agent for magnetic resonance (MR) tracking of transplanted endothelial cells. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of INOPS labeling on endothelial cells. The mixture of INOPS and poly-l-lysine (PLL) was used to label human endothelial cells. Labeling efficiency was examined by(More)
The aim of this preliminary study is to explore the feasibility of incorporating superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) with poly-L-lysine (PLL) for labeling and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of human lung adenocarcinoma cells. Endorem (5-200 microg/mL) was incubated with ASTC-a-1 cells in the presence of PLL (1.5 microg/mL) for 0.5-24 h. The presence of(More)
Caragana species are widespread in northwest China. However, species in semiarid areas of Inner Mongolia experience summer and autumn rainfall, whereas morphologically similar close relatives in arid areas in Xinjiang Province experience wet springs, but hot dry summers. We hypothesize that the differences among species in response to soil drought help to(More)
