and Sargassum thunbergii on the growth of the dinoflagellates Heterosigma akashiwo and Alexandrium tamarense Abstract The allelopathic effects of fresh tissue, dry powder and aqueous extracts of three macroalgae, Ulva pertusa, Corallina pilulifera and Sargassum thunbergii, on the growth of the dinoflagellates Heterosigma akashiwo and Alexandrium tamarense(More)
Estrogen deficiency is associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases. But merely estrogen supplementary treatment can induce many severe complications such as breast cancer. The present study was designed to elucidate molecular mechanisms underlying increased susceptibility of arrhythmogenesis during myocardial infarction with estrogen(More)
1. Alterations in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) are reported to be involved in sympathetic overactivity in chronic heart failure (CHF). Inhibitory inputs into the PVN contribute to sympathetic outflow. The aim of the present study was to comparatively determine the role of GABA mechanisms in the PVN in the tonic control of cardiovascular activity in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate mRNA expression of GABAa receptor(GABAaR) subunits in the rat cochlear spiral ganglion neurons (SGN) and explore the effect of sodium salicylate (SS) on the expression of GABAaR subunits. METHOD The realtime fluorescent quantitative PCR (FQ-PCR) was used to detect mRNA expression of twelve GABAaR subunits in the newborn rat SGN(More)
β2-glycoprotein I (β2-GPI) is a plasma protein that interacts with oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL) via β2-GPI domain V to form oxLDL/β2-GPI complexes, potential autoantigens promoting atherogenesis in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Such a interaction would expose β2-GPI domain I or/and IV, structures recognized by anti-β2-GPI(More)
