Chorispora bungeana Fisch. and C.A. Mey (Chorispora bungeana) is a rare alpine subnival plant species that is highly tolerant to environmental stress. Phospholipase D (PLD) is a key enzyme involved in membrane phospholipid catabolism during plant growth, development and stress responses. We have isolated and partially characterized a full-length cDNA(More)
Nickel nanoparticles (Ni NPs) have been applied in various fields along with the rapid development of nanotechnology. However, the potential adverse health effects of the Ni NPs are unclear. To investigate the cyto- and genotoxicity and compare the differences between the Ni NPs and the nickel fine particles (Ni FPs), Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats and A549 cells(More)
This study was carried out to add scientific data in regard to the use of metallic nanoparticles in nanomedicine. The acute toxicity of nickel (Ni) nanoparticles (50 nm), intravenously injected through the dorsal penile vein of Sprague Dawley rats was evaluated in this study. Fourteen days after injection, Ni nanoparticles induced liver and spleen injury,(More)
BACKGROUND The genetic polymorphisms of glutathione S-transferase (GSTs) have been suspected to be related to the development of lung cancer while the current results are conflicting, especially in the Chinese population. METHODS Data on genetic polymorphisms of glutathione S-transferase Mu 1 (GSTM1) from 68 studies, glutathione S-transferase theta 1(More)
Methamphetamine (MA) is a highly abused amphetamine‑like psychostimulant. At present, the mechanisms underlying MA‑induced cardiotoxicity are poorly understood. The cardiotoxic effects have yet not been clearly elucidated with respect to the apoptotic pathway. Insulin‑like growth factor binding protein‑5 (IGFBP5) is important for cell growth control and the(More)
In the present study, the left anterior descending coronary arteries of mice under anesthesia were ligated, and the optimal surgical conditions for coronary artery ligation (CAL) in the establishment of a myocardial infarction (MI) mouse model were investigated. All mice that survived were sacrificed seven days subsequent to the successful surgery. Body(More)
The influence of freezing on phospholipase D (PLD) was studied in Chorispora bungeana Fisch. & C.A. Mey., which is a naturally cold-tolerant species. During the freezing treatment (−4 °C), PLD activities in both microsomal and mitochondrial membranes increased at day 3, remained at a high level at day 6 and then declined to a moderate level. The RT-PCR(More)
Clustering analysis has received considerable attention in spatial data mining for several years. With the rapid development of the geospatial information technologies, the size of spatial information data is growing exponentially which makes clustering massive spatial data a challenging task. In order to improve the efficiency of spatial clustering for(More)
With the objective of finding valuable herbicidal candidates, a series of new 5-heterocycloxy-3-methyl-1-substituted-1H-pyrazoles were synthesized and their herbicidal activities were evaluated. The bioassay results showed that some compounds exhibited excellent herbicidal activities at the concentration of 100 mg/L, and compound(More)
To date, the role of metabotropic glutamate receptor 3 (GRM3) rs274622, rs1468412, rs917071, rs6465084, and rs2299225 polymorphisms in schizophrenia remains controversial. To provide a clearer picture for the effect of the five most studied GRM3 polymorphisms on risk of schizophrenia, this meta-analysis with eligible data from published studies was(More)
