Identification of anthocyanins in black rice (Oryza sativa L.) by UPLC/Q-TOF-MS and their in vitro and in vivo antioxidant activities
Abstract Anthocyanins in different types of black rice are different and their in vivo antioxidant activity is poorly studied. In this study, nine anthocyanins were detected by high performance… Expand
Increased Endothelial Nitric-Oxide Synthase Expression Reduces Hypertension and Hyperinsulinemia in Fructose-Treated Rats

The major lipid-soluble constituents in Fructus aurantii (zhiqiao) and Fructus aurantii immaturus (zhishi) are polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) and coumarins. In the present study, a high-performance… Expand
Regulation of alpha-cell function by the beta-cell during hypoglycemia in Wistar rats: the "switch-off" hypothesis.
The glucagon response is the first line of defense against hypoglycemia and is lost in insulin-dependent diabetes. The beta-cell "switch-off" hypothesis proposes that a sudden cessation of insulin… Expand
Intrarenal Dopamine Inhibits Progression of Diabetic Nephropathy
The kidney has a local intrarenal dopaminergic system, and in the kidney, dopamine modulates renal hemodynamics, inhibits salt and fluid reabsorption, antagonizes the renin-angiotensin system, and… Expand

Black TiO2 nanobelts/g-C3N4 nanosheets laminated heterojunctions (b-TiO2/g-C3N4) as visible-light-driven photocatalysts are fabricated through a simple hydrothermal-calcination process and an in-situ… Expand
BGP-Reflection Functors and Lusztig's Symmetries: A Ringel–Hall Algebra Approach to Quantum Groups
According to the canonical isomorphisms between the Ringel–Hall algebras (composition algebras) and the quantum groups, we deduce Lusztig's symmetries T″i, 1, i ∈ I, by applying the… Expand
Intrarenal dopamine deficiency leads to hypertension and decreased longevity in mice.
In addition to its role as an essential neurotransmitter, dopamine serves important physiologic functions in organs such as the kidney. Although the kidney synthesizes dopamine through the actions of… Expand
