The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effects of quercetin, a dietary flavonoid, on human prostate adenocarcinoma PC-3 cells. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release, microculture tetrazolium test (MTT assay) and real-time PCR array were employed to evaluate the effects of quercetin on cell cytotoxicity, cell proliferation and expression of various(More)
The involvement of cGMP/KATP pathway in effects of sildenafil on experimental colitis was investigated. Sildenafil significantly attenuated colonic injury markers. These effects were reversed by the addition of glibenclamide or ODQ, indicating the involvement of ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP) and cGMP, respectively.
The wrapper approach to identify atypical examples can be preferable to the filter approach (which may not be consistent with the classifier in use), but its running time is prohibitive. The fastest available wrappers are quadratic in the number of examples, which is far too expensive for atypical detection. The algorithm presented in this paper is a(More)
BACKGROUND With increased international travel over the world the need for safe and effective chemoprophylaxis for malaria is as great as ever. The choice of regimen is difficult, as effectiveness should be weighted against potential adverse effects. Although, some studies have reported high prophylactic efficacy of primaquine, there is no comprehensive(More)
