As an endangered endemic herb, Dendrobium fimbriatum, is under threat from numerous impacts. In order to analyse the genetic diversity and structure of this endangered species, we provide details of 10 microsatellite loci (out of 15 primer pairs designed) which showed polymorphic for D. fimbriatum. These loci were used to screen 25 individuals from across(More)
Activation of several protein kinases occurs during myocardial ischaemia and during subsequent reperfusion. In contrast to the intensive investigation into the significance of kinase activation in cardioprotection, relatively little is known about the role of the phosphatases in this regard. The aim of this study was to re-evaluate the putative roles of PP1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of olmesartan medoxomil compared with losartan potassium in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension. METHOD This is a randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, active-controlled, parallel, multi-center study. After a 2-week placebo run-in period, a total of 287 eligible subjects were randomized at(More)
TWO LINES OF EVIDENCE INDICATE THAT SYNTHESIS OF VIRAL DNA OCCURS IN THE CYTOPLASM OF DUCK EMBRYO FIBROBLASTS INFECTED WITH AVIAN SARCOMA VIRUS: (i) viral DNA is detected first in the cytoplasmic fraction of infected cells and subsequently in the nuclear fraction; and (ii) viral DNA is synthesized at a normal rate in cells infected after enucleation with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the trends in the change of etiologic types of cardiovascular disease among inpatients in Shanghai area from 1948 to 1999. METHODS The retrospective estimate was based on the data survey in two major general hospitals of Shanghai. Descriptive statistics were provided for all patients meeting the inclusion criteria. Trend of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Shexiang Baoxin Pill (SBP) in intervening atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction (AS-MI) in experimental animals, and inspect its influences on angiogenesis. METHODS Twenty male New-Zealand rabbits were made into AS-MI model, and randomly divided into 2 groups equally. Group A was fed with high-fat diet for(More)
Statins have shown pleiotropic effects, many of them independent of their impact on lipids. Angiogenesis can be beneficial in the acute myocardial infarction to improve circulation. However, it also can be harmful due to worsening of atherosclerosis. Here, we established a new minimal invasive rabbit model to study ischemic myocardium and atherosclerosis(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of salvianolate on the migration of endothelial cells induced by monocytes. METHODS Transwell-boydom system was used to test the migration of endothelial cells induced by monocytes. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and RT-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method were used to determine the effect of salvianolate on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of rhodiola on expression of vascular endothelial growth factors receptors (VEGFR) in myocardium of rats after myocardial infarction. METHODS On the basis of successful establishment of myocardial infarction rat model, the experimental animals were divided into the model group, the rhodiola group, the positive control(More)
Anucleate HTC cells have been used to determine the importance of the nucleus in the regulation of the intracellular levels of tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT) in hepatoma tissue culture (HTC) cells. In the absence of the nucleus, neither the induction of the enzyme by dexamethasone nor its deinduction upon removal of the hormone occurs. Degradation of the(More)
