A boron-dipyrromethene (BODIPY) dye containing a styryl substituent with a hydroxyl and nitro group, 1a, exhibits a 'turn-on' fluorescence response for hypoxic cells. The presence of the electron-withdrawing nitro group results in a highly efficient nonradiative decay of the S1 state, and hence a recovery of fluorescence intensity when nitro reduction(More)
BACKGROUND Years of education are inversely related to the prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD), but the relationship between the clinical features of MDD and educational status is poorly understood. We investigated this in 1970 Chinese women with recurrent MDD identified in a clinical setting. METHODS Clinical and demographic features were(More)
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) and oxidative damage were correlated with the risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Glutathione S-transferase (GST) polymorphism was proved to be associated with body antioxidant capacity and involved in the oxidative damage related chronic diseases. To explore the combined effects of APOE rs429358, rs7412 and GSTM1/T1 polymorphism on(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between diet, lifestyle and cognition of old adults has been indicated in several population-based studies. However, the conclusions derived from these studies are inconsistent. METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out in 894 old Chinese adults aged 50 and above. Cognitive function of the participants was measured by(More)
JAK-STAT signaling pathway plays an important role in the cells' development and homeostasis. Over the past decades, the studies have identified the role of the JAK-STAT pathway in cell proliferation and apoptosis. Here, we want to discuss that whether and how the JAK-STAT pathway affects the lipid metabolism of adipose tissue. A host of cytokines and(More)
We describe herein the first synthesis of silyl- and disilanyl-BODIPYs through transition-metal-catalyzed dehalosilylation of iodo-BODIPYs using a Pd(P(tBu)3 )2 /Et3 N/toluene system. Various mono- and bis-silyl-BODIPYs, mono- and bis-disilanyl-BODIPYs and bis-BODIPYs linked by silylene and SiOSi groups were synthesized by using this straightforward method.(More)
Cu(II) complexed amino acid ionic liquid, Cu(II)-[1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium][L-Pro] (Cu(II)-[BMIm][L-Pro]), was successfully adopted as chiral ligand to improve the enantioseparation efficiency in high speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC). For the enantioseparation of intractable naringenin (NRG) racemic mixtures, Cu(II)-[BMIm][L-Pro] coupled with(More)
Inflammation and oxidative stress are essential for the pathogenesis of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF). Asiatic acid (AA), which is a pentacyclic triterpene that widely occurs in various vegetables and fruits, has been reported to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of AA against(More)
Depression is a common psychiatric disorder that affects millions of people around the world, however, little is known about the pathophysiology of depression and the therapeutic strategy for anti-depression. In this study, we investigated the role of irisin, a regulator of energy metabolism, in the modulation of depressive-like behaviors in chronic(More)
The combined influences of crystallinity and reactive compatibilizer—a multifunctional epoxide (ADR)—on morphology, tensile performance, and heat resistance of polylactide/thermoplastic polyester elastomer (PLA/TPEE) (80/20) blends were investigated. Annealing involved an isothermal cold crystallization of PLA matrix was performed to increase crystallinity(More)
