Recent evidence suggests that exercise improves functional outcome in animal models of cerebral ischemia. Since netrin-1 and its receptors, deleted in colorectal cancer (DCC) and uncoordinated gene 5B (Unc5B), act as important regulators in neural and vascular activities, we sought to determine whether netrin-1 and DCC and Unc5B are involved in the(More)
In this paper, we use a kind of univariate multiquadric (MQ) quasi-interpolation to solve partial differential equation (PDE). We obtain the numerical scheme, by using the derivative of the quasi-interpolation to approximate the spatial derivative of the dependent variable and a low order forward difference to approximate the temporal derivative of the(More)
We have undertaken cDNA microarrays to identify differentially expressed genes in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of spontaneously hypertensive-rat (SHR), a rodent model of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) versus control Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. The analysis of the gene expression profiles indicated that 57 genes were up-regulated and 97 genes(More)
IL-10, as a cytokine, has an anti-inflammatory cascade following various injuries, but it remains blurred whether IL-10 protects neurites of cortical neurons after oxygen-glucose deprivation injury. Here, we reported that IL-10, in a concentration-dependent manner, reduced neuronal apoptosis and increased neuronal survival in oxygen-glucose-deprived primary(More)
AIM NYGGF4 is a novel gene that is abundantly expressed in the adipose tissue of obese patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of NYGGF4 on basal and insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes and to understand the underlying mechanisms. METHODS 3T3-L1 preadipocytes transfected with either an empty expression(More)
Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a crucial process for the invasion and metastasis of epithelial tumors. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this transition are poorly understood. In this study, we demonstrate that interferon regulatory factor 4 binding protein (IBP) regulates EMT and the motility of breast cancer cells through Rac1,(More)
