All the angiotensin peptides originate from angiotensinogen, a glycoprotein synthesized by several tissues, including the brain and the anterior pituitary. In the rat, immunohistochemistry has been used to localize angiotensinogen in gonadotropes and in uncharacterized cells surrounding sinusoids. Both cell types are capable of secreting angiotensinogen in(More)
Newborn marsupials do not have a thyroid gland at birth. The gland develops while the young marsupial is in the mother's pouch. The young brushtail possum initiates secretion of thyroid hormones from its own thyroid at about Day 65 post partum. However, during the first three weeks of pouch life thyroxine is passed from the mother to the young via the milk.(More)
The healing process of fractured bone is affected by the multiple factors regulating the growth and differentiation of osteoblasts and bone mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), however, such markers and molecular events need to be orchestrated in details. This study investigated the effect of polyphenol(-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) on the hypoxia-induced(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the osteoblasts effect, complications and influencing factors in the application of small freeze-drying allogeneic bone plots mixed autologous bone fragments in spinal surgery, and to compare with autogenous bone graft. METHODS From January 2003 to January 2007, 515 cases of spinal injuries were treated. A total of 324 cases were(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a nuclear protein that involves the binding with DNA and influences chromatin regulation and transcription. HMGB1 activates monocytes and neutrophils, which are involved in inflammation during wounding. In this study, we investigated the promotion of HMGB1 under hypoxia and determined the regulatory role of HMGB1 on the(More)
