AIMS The study was designed to evaluate the mechanisms of cardiac regeneration after injury and to determine how to restore that capacity in aged individuals. The adult heart retains a small population of nascent cells that have myeloid, mesenchymal, and mesodermal capabilities, which play an essential role in the recovery of ventricular function after(More)
Noise-induced complete synchronization and frequency synchronization in coupled spiking and bursting neurons are studied firstly. The effects of noise and coupling are discussed. It is found that bursting neurons are easier to achieve firing synchronization than spiking ones, which means that bursting activities are more important for information transfer(More)
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)
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)
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)
Phosphorus (P) loss by various pathways in constructed wetlands (CWs) is often variable. The effects of intermittent aeration and different construction waste substrates (gravel, red brick, fly-ash brick) on P processing using six batch-operated vertical flow constructed wetlands (VFCWs) were studied for decentralized domestic wastewater treatment.
