Plasma exosomes protect the myocardium from ischemia-reperfusion injury.
BACKGROUND Exosomes are nanometer-sized vesicles released from cells into the blood, where they can transmit signals throughout the body. Shown to act on the heart, exosomes' composition and theExpand

Knockdown of Interleukin-1 Receptor Type-1 on Endothelial Cells Attenuated Stress-Induced Neuroinflammation and Prevented Anxiety-Like Behavior
Interleukin-1β (IL-1β) is an inflammatory cytokine that plays a prominent role in stress-induced behavioral changes. In a model of repeated social defeat (RSD), elevated IL-1β expression in the brainExpand

Almost tight recursion tree bounds for the Descartes method
We give a unified ("basis free") framework for the Descartes method for real root isolation of square-free real polynomials. This framework encompasses the usual Descartes' rule of sign method forExpand

Complexity Analysis of Root Clustering for a Complex Polynomial
Let F(z) be an arbitrary complex polynomial. We introduce the {local root clustering problem}, to compute a set of natural epsilon-clusters of roots of F(z) in some box region B0 in the complexExpand

A near-optimal subdivision algorithm for complex root isolation based on the Pellet test and Newton iteration
We describe a subdivision algorithm for isolating the complex roots of a polynomial $F\in\mathbb{C}[x]$. Given an oracle that provides approximations of each of the coefficients of $F$ to anyExpand

Intermittent fasting prevents the progression of type I diabetic nephropathy in rats and changes the expression of Sir2 and p53
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the main causes of end stage renal disease (ESRD) and a leading cause of diabetes mellitus related morbidity and mortality. Recently, sirtuin are reported to haveExpand

Robust Geometric Computation
Nonrobustness refers to qualitative or catastrophic failures in geometric algorithms arising from numerical errors. Section 45.1 provides background on these problems. Although nonrobustness isExpand

Differential effects of tannic acid on cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity in rats
Cisplatin is a widely used antineoplastic drug. Major drawback of cisplatin therapy is its nephrotoxicity. The objective of this study was to check the effect of tannic acid on cisplatin inducedExpand

Analytic Root Clustering: A Complete Algorithm Using Soft Zero Tests
A challenge to current theories of computing in the continua is the proper treatment of the zero test. Such tests are critical for extracting geometric information. Zero tests are expensive and mayExpand
