Melatonin-selenium nanoparticles (MT-Se), a novel complex, were synthesized by preparing selenium nanoparticles in melatonin medium. The present investigation was designed to determine the protective effects of MT-Se against Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG)/lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced hepatic injury in mice. In BCG/LPS-induced hepatic injury model, MT-Se(More)
AIM Melatonin-selenium nanoparticle (MT-Se), a novel complex, was synthesized by preparing selenium nanoparticles in a melatonin medium. The present investigation was designed to determine the protective effects of MT-Se against immunological liver injury in mice induced by bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)/lipopolysaccharide (LPS). METHODS The model of(More)
This article describes a rapid, solution-phase approach to the large-scale synthesis of faceted single-crystalline Se nanotubes, in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide. The products were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, laser Raman(More)
A novel enzymatic hydrogen peroxide sensor was successfully fabricated based on the nanocomposites containing of Ag/C nanocables and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). Ag/C nanocables have been synthesized by a hydrothermal method and then AuNPs were assembled on the surface of Ag/C nanocables. The nanocomposites were confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD),(More)
The detection and speciation analysis of metal-ion is very important for environmental monitoring. A novel electrochemical biosensor for Nickel(II) detection based on a DNAzyme-CdSe nanocomposite was developed. We firstly hybridized with capture probe (DNA1) and sequentially with DNA (DNA2) on the gold electrode. Then CdSe QDs were incorporated the specific(More)
A novel graphene oxide sheets/polyaniline/CdSe quantum dots (GO/PANi/CdSe) nanocomposites were successfully synthesized and used for the sensitive electrochemiluminescence (ECL) biosensing. The GO/PANi/CdSe nanocomposites were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) absorption(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperglycaemia is common among patients with critical neurological injury, even if they have no history of diabetes. The optimal target range for normalizing their blood glucose is unknown. METHODS Retrospective data were extracted from 890 hyperglycaemic individuals (glucose > 200 mg/dL) admitted to neuroscience critical care unit (NCCU) and(More)
The synthesis, structure, and single- and two-photon spectroscopic properties of a series of pyrimidine-based (bent-shaped) molecules are reported. All these stable heterocyclic compounds are fully characterized, and exhibit intense single- and two-photon excited fluorescence (SPEF and TPEF) over a wide spectral range from blue to red, with the spectral(More)
Neural stem cell (NSC) proliferation and differentiation play a pivotal role in the development of brain, the plasticity of the brain network, and the repair for brain function in CNS diseases. The mechanisms regulating NSC behavior are not well elucidated. Previous studies showed porf-2 functions as a modulator in central nerve system development. We here(More)
Coordination coupling induced self-assembly of ZnS microparticles was performed with the help of a π-conjugated sulphur-terminal Zn(ii) complex ZnS2L (L = N-hexyl-3-{2-[4-2,2':6',2''-terpyridin-4'-yl-phenyl]ethenyl}-carbazole). The interactions between ZnS and ZnS2L components at the interface, which were analyzed by far-IR and XPS, resulted in a tunable(More)
