Cadmium (Cd), one of the most toxic environmental and industrial pollutants, is known to exert gonadotoxic and spermiotoxic effects. In the present study, we examined the toxic effect of Cd on the testis of freshwater crab, Sinopotamon henanense. Crabs were exposed to different Cd concentrations (from 0 to 116.00 mg·L(-1)) for 7 d. Oxidative stress and(More)
BACKGROUND Although the chlorinated flame retardant Dechlorane (Dec) 602 has been detected in food, human blood, and breast milk, there is limited information on potential health effects, including possible immunotoxicity. OBJECTIVES We determined the immunotoxic potential of Dec 602 in mice by examining the expression of phenotypic markers on thymocyte(More)
Cell–substrate interaction is important in tissue engineering. Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) cultured on the microgrooved surface of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) (PHBHHx) showed a distinctive polarized morphology and a high expression level of let-7a compared with the flat substrates. LIMK2, a crucial regulator of actin dynamics, was(More)
