PURPOSE Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is a molecular determinant regulating the extracellular matrix calcification. To further confirm whether the MGP genetic polymorphism was universally associated with the risk of kidney stone, we investigated the association of genetic polymorphisms of MGP with kidney stone in the Chinese Han population. MATERIALS AND(More)
The objective of this study is to understand pathogenesis of melamine-related kidney stone formation. We investigated the characterization of renal tubular cell under exposure to a mixture of melamine and cyanuric acid in vivo. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were separated into two experimental groups. Treatment group was administered daily with a standard(More)
BACKGROUND Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is a molecular determinant regulating vascular calcification of the extracellular matrix. However, it is still unclear how MGP may be involved in crystal formation in the kidney of hyperoxaluric rats. METHODS Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into the hyperoxaluric group and control group. Hyperoxaluric rats were(More)
This paper presents a development environment of Internet of Things, EFAIoT. EFAIoT means an Easy and Flexible Application Development system, which is focus on the Internet of Things field. Our system provides graphic user interface, through which users can build up their own internet of things applications on the semantic layout. A browser based and user(More)
CCL2 was up-regulated in neurons and involved in microglia activation and neurological decline in mice suffering from hepatic encephalopathy (HE). However, no data exist concerning the effect of neuron-derived CCL2 on microglia activation in vitro. The rats were pretreated with CCL2 receptor inhibitors (INCB or C021, 1 mg/kg/day i.p.) for 3 days prior to(More)
