BACKGROUND HIV transmission in rural areas of China is being fueled in part by migrant workers who acquire HIV outside of their hometowns. Recent surveillance statistics indicate that HIV prevalence among returning migrants has increased significantly. METHODS We conducted a community-based cross-sectional study to assess HIV-related knowledge, attitudes(More)
CLEC16A, C-type lectin domain family 16, member A was recently found to be associated with inflation process in the autoimmune diseases. In this study, we elucidated the dynamic expression changes and localization of CLEC16A in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced neuroinflammatory processes in adult rats. CLEC16A expression was strongly induced in active(More)
Chronic exposure to excessive manganese (Mn) has been known to lead to neuronal loss and a clinical syndrome resembling idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). p53 plays an integral role in the development of various human diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders. However, the role of p53 in Mn-induced neuronal apoptosis and neurological deficits(More)
Arsenic is a widely distributed toxic metalloid all over the world. Inorganic arsenic species are supposed to affect astrocytic functions and to cause neuron apoptosis in CNS. Microglias are the key cell type involved in innate immune responses in CNS, and microglia activation has been linked to inflammation and neurotoxicity. In this study, using ELISA, we(More)
Cardiovascular diseases are threatening human health with rising morbidity and mortality rates. Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) has been found to be involved in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases, especially coronary artery disease, and the prognosis of cardiovascular disease may be predicted by increasing GGT levels. GGT levels are related to(More)
APRIL, a member of the TNF superfamily, can induce cell proliferation and is overexpressed in most tumor tissues or cells. Nevertheless, it is still unknown about the effect of decreased levels of APRIL expression on tumor cells. In this study, we analyzed APRIL and HSPG expression in the colon carcinoma cell line, SW480 by Western blot and RT-PCR. And the(More)
Numblike (Numbl) plays an important role in ependymal wall integrity and subventricular zone neuroblast survival. And Numbl is specifically expressed in the brain. However, its expression and function in the central nervous system lesion are still unclear. In this study, we performed a traumatic brain injury (TBI) model in adult rats and investigated the(More)
Skeletal muscle atrophy occurs after denervation. The present study dissected the rat left ventral root and dorsal root at L4-6 or the sciatic nerve to establish a model of simple motor nerve injury, sensory nerve injury or mixed nerve injury. Results showed that with prolonged denervation time, rats with simple motor nerve injury, sensory nerve injury or(More)
LIN28, an RNA-binding protein, is known to be involved in the regulation of many cellular processes, such as embryonic stem cell proliferation, cell fate succession, developmental timing, and oncogenesis. However, its expression and function in central nervous system still unclear. In this study, we performed an acute spinal cord contusion injury (SCI)(More)
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) has been reported to cause alterations in cognitive and motor behavior during both development and adulthood. In this study, the neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) signaling pathway was investigated in differentiated pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells to better understand the mechanisms of TCDD-induced neurotoxicity.(More)
