We expressed firstly the Capsid protein gene defecting the nuclear localization signal (NLS) of Porcine circovirus type II (PCV2) in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein with glutathione S-transferase (rGST-dCap protein). The purified rGST-dCap protein and the recombinant NLS-defected Cap protein of PCV2 (rdCap protein) from the purified rGST-dCap protein(More)
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) has been recently associated with a number of disease syndromes, especially postweaning multisystemic wasting disease (PMWS). Herein, an alternative indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of PCV2 antibody was developed using nuclear localization signal-truncated capsid protein of PCV2 produced in(More)
Chronic brain hypoperfusion (CBH) is a common clinical feature of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia, but the underlying molecular mechanism is unclear. Our previous study reported that the down-regulation of microRNA-195 (miR-195) promotes amyloidogenesis via regulation of amyloid precursor protein and β-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate immune responses in BALB/c mice vaccinated subcutaneously by recombinant protein, or intramuscularly by plasmid DNA with fusion antigen of rhoptry protein 2 (ROP2) and major surface protein 1 (SAG1) from Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii). BALB/c mice were immunized with one of three different antigen formulations(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Abnormal baroreceptor reflex sensitivity (BRS) and elevated plasma neuropeptide Y (NPY) are prevalent in diabetic patients. The present study was conducted to determine whether NPY Y1 receptor (Y1R) and NPY Y2 receptor (Y2R) contribute to the regulatin of BRS in diabetic rats. METHODS Diabetes mellitus (DM) rats with hyperlipidemia were(More)
