Hydroxysafflor yellow A (HSYA) has been approved clinically for treating cardiac patients in China since 2005. Recent studies have indicated that HSYA may be neuroprotective at 24 h in experimental stroke models. Autophagy is a vital degradation pathway of damaged intracellular macromolecules or organelles to maintain homeostasis in physiological or(More)
Autophagy, an important intracellular degradation pathway, has been reported to clear impaired mitochondria and reduce mitochondria-mediated injury in ischemic disease. Our study and other recent investigations have shown that AKT-dependent autophagy contributes to the neuroprotection afforded by limb remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) in experimental(More)
Cerebral ischemia interrupts oxygen supply to the affected tissues. Our previous studies have reported that normobaric hyperoxia (NBO) can maintain interstitial partial pressure of oxygen (pO2) in the penumbra of ischemic stroke rats at the physiological level, thus affording significant neuroprotection. However, the mechanisms that are responsible for the(More)
Zinc ions are stored in synaptic vesicles and cerebral ischemia triggers their release from the terminals of neurons. Zinc accumulation in neurons has been shown to play an important role in neuronal death following ischemia. However, almost nothing is known about whether zinc is involved in ischemia-induced blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption. Herein, we(More)
Human Nutrition and Foods (ABSTRACT) This study was designed to examine if a sphingolipid-enriched lipid fraction from wheat gluten could affect the incidence of type I diabetes in BioBreeding diabetes prone (BBdp) rats. Wheat gluten was extracted with a chloroform-methanol (CM) mixture to isolate most of the lipids. Isolated lipids were subjected to silica(More)
