The overall hypothesis that cell death after intracerebral hemorrhage is mediated in part by apoptotic mechanisms was tested. Intracerebral hemorrhage was induced in rats using stereotactic infusions of 0.5 U of collagenase (1-microL volume) into the striatum. After 24 hours, large numbers of TUNEL-positive stained cells with morphologies suggestive of(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the appearance of breast lesions using acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) and to correlate the ARFI values with the pathologic results. The area ratio (AR) and virtual touch tissue quantification (VTQ) values were analyzed in 86 patients (mean age 45.6 years, range 17-78 years) with 92 breast lesions (65(More)
We present the final report from a series of precision measurements of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, a µ = (g − 2)/2. The details of the experimental method, apparatus, data taking, and analysis are summarized. Data obtained at Brookhaven National Laboratory, using nearly equal samples of positive and negative muons, were used to deduce a µ (Expt) =(More)
Acyl-CoA-binding proteins (ACBPs) show conservation at the acyl-CoA-binding (ACB) domain which facilitates binding to acyl-CoA esters. In Arabidopsis thaliana, six ACBPs participate in development and stress responses. Rice (Oryza sativa) also contains six genes encoding ACBPs. We investigated differences in subcellular localization between monocot rice and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate acoustic radiation force impulse imaging for cervical lymphadenopathy in routine clinical practice and to correlate the acoustic radiation force impulse values with the morphological signs and the pathological results, which were used as the reference standard. The virtual touch tissue quantification values were(More)
OBJECTIVE To shed light on the relationship between FcgammaR II a-131 and systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) in southern Chinese Han population. METHODS A population-based and family-based study was carried out. FcgammaR II a-131 of each subject was measured by using PCR-allele specific oligonucleotide hybridization(ASO) method. RESULTS (1) The(More)
We evaluated the effects of superfusing 1H-[1,2,4]oxadiazolo[4,3-a]quinoxalin-1-one (ODQ), eNOS null (B) an inhibitor of soluble guanylyl cyclase, and 7-nitroindazole sodium (7-NI), a selective neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) inhibitor, on the acetylcholine (ACh) response in endothelial NOS (eNOS) null mice. Pial arteriolar diameter was measured by(More)
Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was studied in type III nitric oxide (NO) synthase (endothelial, eNOS) mutant and wild type mice during mechanical whisker stimulation before and after nitro-L-arginine (L-NA) superfusion using the closed cranial window technique. rCBF increased equally in cortical barrel fields in both strains during stimulation, as(More)
BACKGROUND NKG2D recognises several ligands, including polymorphic major histocompatibility complex class I chain-related chain-related proteins A and B (MICA/B) and unique long 16-binding proteins (ULBPs). These ligands are present on cancer cells and are recognised by NKG2D in a cell-structure-sensing manner, triggering natural killer (NK) cell(More)
Infarct size and vascular hemodynamics were measured 24 h after middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion in mice genetically deficient in the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) isoform. eNOS mutant mice developed larger infarcts (21%) than the wild-type strain when assessed 24 h after intraluminal filament occlusion. Moreover, regional CBF values(More)
