The influence of nitrogen (N) deficiency on tolerance mechanisms in seedlings of two maize hybrids (Xu178 × Huang-C and Xu178 × Zong3) and their parental inbred lines (Xu178, Huang-C and Zong3), which show different nitrogen use efficiency (NUE), was investigated using physiological measurements combined with global proteomics profiling. The root fresh(More)
Two previous studies published by our group identified that mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) conferred neuroprotection in a rat model of hypoxic-ischaemic brain damage (HIBD), and that MSCs secreted abundant interleukin-6 (IL‑6) when co‑cultured with oxygen and glucose deprivation (OGD)‑injured PC12 cells. The present study has further investigated the role(More)
Two chiral stationary phases derived from derivatized amylose (Chiralpak AD-H and Chiralpak IA) have been used to separate the enantiomers of new diethyl benzamidoarylmethylphosphonates. The data obtained indicate that all the studied compounds could be easily baseline resolved on both columns. Owing to the different techniques involved in their(More)
The miR396 and growth-regulating factor (GRF) regulatory network is evolutionarily conserved among plant species. The orthologous GRF genes in rice were involved in regulating grain development, and targeted by miR396. However, there are still no more information about the involvement of miR396 and GRF genes in maize grain. In this article, RNA sequencing(More)
A clean process has been developed for the synthesis of 2-adamantylphenol derivatives through adamantylation of substituted phenols with adamantanols catalyzed by commercially available and recyclable ion-exchange sulfonic acid resin in acetic acid. The sole byproduct of the adamantylation reaction, namely water, could be converted into the solvent acetic(More)
We previously found that hematoma worsens hydrocephalus after intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) via increasing iron deposition and aggravating ependymal cilia injury; therefore, promoting hematoma absorption may be a promising strategy for IVH. Recently, some investigations imply that simvastatin has the ability of accelerating hematoma absorption. Thus,(More)
Personality traits predict driving behaviors. However, the mechanism underlying this relationship has not been adequately investigated in professional drivers. The current study investigated the relationship between altruistic personality and aberrant driving behaviors, and the potential role of burnout. A total of 194 bus drivers completed questionnaires(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop an HPLC method for the determination of a Tibetan medicine Meconopsis quintuplinervia. METHOD A Hypersil-Keystone-C18 column (4.6 mm x 250 mm, 5 microm) was used with the isocratic elution of acetonitrile and 0.012% glacial acetic acid. The flow rate was 1.0 mL x min(-1), and the detection wavelength was set at 237 nm. RESULT The(More)
Fibrosis in ventricular system has a role in hydrocephalus following intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). The cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) has been reported to participate in alleviating the fibrosis process of many diseases. However, its role in fibrosis after IVH was unclear so far, and we hypothesized that CB2 activation has potential to attenuate(More)
The biological function of Interleukin-10 (IL-10) and the relationship between IL-10 secretion and the Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) expression levels in the central nervous system following hypoxic-ischemic brain damage (HIBD) are poorly understood. Here, we intend to elucidate the biological function and mechanism of IL-10 secretion following HIBD. In the(More)
