Peripheral nerve injury is a common clinical problem. Nerve growth factor (NGF) promotes peripheral nerve regeneration, but its clinical applications are limited by several constraints. In this study, we found that the time-dependent expression profiles of eight let-7 family members in the injured nerve after sciatic nerve injury were roughly similar to(More)
Following peripheral nerve injury, transcriptional responses are orchestrated to regulate the expression of numerous genes in the lesioned nerve, thus activating the intrinsic regeneration program. To better understand the molecular regulation of peripheral nerve regeneration, we aimed at investigating the transcriptional landscape of dorsal root ganglia(More)
After traumatic injury, peripheral nerves can spontaneously regenerate through highly sophisticated and dynamic processes that are regulated by multiple cellular elements and molecular factors. Despite evidence of morphological changes and of expression changes of a few regulatory genes, global knowledge of gene expression changes and related biological(More)
Expression of a mouse opsin transgene containing three point mutations (V20G, P23H, and P27L; termed VPP) causes a progressive photoreceptor degeneration that resembles in many important respects that seen in patients with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa caused by a P23H point mutation. We have attempted to determine whether the degree of(More)
Haploinsufficiency because of a null mutation in the gene encoding peripherin/rds has been thought to be the primary defect associated with the photoreceptor degeneration seen in the retinal degeneration slow (rds) mouse. We have compared the effects of this haploinsufficiency on rod and cone photoreceptors by measuring the levels of rod- and cone-specific(More)
It remains unclear whether autophagy affects hippocampal neuronal injury in vascular dementia. In the present study, we investigated the effects of autophagy blockade on hippocampal neuronal injury in a rat model of vascular dementia. In model rats, hippocampal CA1 neurons were severely damaged, and expression of the autophagy-related proteins beclin-1,(More)
After peripheral nerve injury, the degenerative debris and inflammatory alterations at the injury site may block the elongation of regenerating axons to reach target organs. Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a serine protease, has a capability of degrading matrix molecules and cell adhesions. In this study, we found that either tPA or miR-340 was(More)
Peripheral nerve injures are quite common in clinical practice, and many studies have tried to explore the underlying molecular mechanisms. This study focuses on the identification and functional analysis of novel miRNAs in rat dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) following sciatic nerve resection, which is a classic model for studying peripheral nerve injury and(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of antiviral therapy in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) on reducing the risk of long-term complications (LTCs) remains unclear so far. To study whether long-term nucleos(t)ide analogues therapy can reduce the risk of long-term complications. METHODS We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, OVID, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.(More)
Non-alphabetic characters in a search filter should not be overlooked in bibliometric research. Since further results and discussion depend on the data abstracted by the search filter, omission or misuse of non-alphabetic characters in a search filter may lead to inaccurate results and wrong conclusions. The paper titled ''Global trends of solid waste(More)
