UNLABELLED Previous studies showed that the accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) induce cardiomyocyte apoptoisis, leading to heart dysfunction. However, the effect of AGEs on another cell death pathway, autophagy, in cardiomyocytes remains unknown. METHODS Rat neonate cardiomyocytes were cultured and treated with AGEs at different(More)
The role of connexins in atherogenesis has attracted increasing attention in recent years; however, whether oxidized LDL (low density lipoprotein) is one of the pro-atherosclerotic factors that can influence the expression of endothelial connexins remains unclear. To investigate the effect of oxidized LDL on the gene expression of the gap junction proteins(More)
This work studies the sudden increases in total electron content of the ionosphere caused by the very intense solar flare on July 14, 2000. Total electron content (TEC) data observed from a Global Positioning System (GPS) network are used to calculate the flare-induced TEC increment, dTECf, and variation rate, dTECf/dt. It is found that both dTECf/dt and(More)
[1] The correct automatic scaling of ionograms is one of the fundamental first steps to obtain ionospheric information. In this paper, new algorithms are proposed to scale F layer traces and separate ordinary ray and extraordinary ray traces from ionograms automatically. The method is mainly based on mathematical morphology, graph theory, and the echo(More)
