In this study, a systemic analysis was initially performed to investigate the relationship between fermentation-related stress tolerances and ethanol yield. Based on the results obtained, two elite Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains, Z8 and Z15, with variant phenotypes were chosen to construct strains with improved multi-stress tolerance by genome shuffling(More)
In the current study, we aimed to understand the potential role of leucine-rich repeats and immunoglobulin-like domains 1 (LRIG1) in TMZ-resistance of U251 glioma cells. We established TMZ-resistant U251 clones (U251/TMZ cells), which expressed low level of LRIG1, but high levels of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), topoisomerase-2 (Topo-2) and(More)
A mouse model was used to compare the number and function of mitochondria in oocytes and embryos obtained by superovulation and in a natural cycle (control group). The superovulation group had a higher number of total oocytes, MII oocytes, embryos with two pronuclei, 2-cell embryos and blastocysts than the control group (P<0.05 for all). The superovulation(More)
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primary cardiac disorder characterized by asymmetric thickening of the septum and left ventricular wall. HCM affects 1 in 500 individuals in the general population, and it is the most common cause of sudden death in the young and athletes. The clinic phenotype of HCM is highly variable with respect to age at onset,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protective effect of luteolin on isolated rat heart in hypothermic preservation. METHODS Forty male SD rats were randomly divided into 4 groups (n = 10): control group, luteolin low-dose group (7.5 micromol/L), middle-dose group (15 micromol/L) and high dose group (30 micromol/L). Langendorff model of isolated rat heart was(More)
