Alternative splicing of tau exon 10 generates tau with three or four microtubule-binding repeats (3R-tau or 4R-tau). The ratio of 3R-tau to 4R-tau is approximately 1:1 in the adult normal human brain. Disturbances in the ratio result in neurodegenerative tauopathies. Splicing factor SC35 acts on a SC35-like element located at the 5′ end of tau exon 10 and(More)
Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have the capacity for self-renewal and multi-directional differentiation, and MSCs can differentiate into neuron-like cells under certain conditions. In this study, we used the traditional Chinese medicine Astragalus as an inducer. After 7 days of induction, the expression of specific markers was detected in each(More)
Traditional Chinese medicine can promote the proliferation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). We chose four "Kidney-tonifying" Chinese herbal medicines, Radix Astragali, Salvia, Herba Epimedii, and Saussurea Involucrata, to evaluate whether they had positive effects on the proliferation of BMSCs and TGF-β1-induced chondrogenic(More)
Two inbred strains of mice, A/J, C57BL/6J and F2 intercross progenies,were used for QTL mapping for weight and cross-sectional area on cervical enlargement of spinal cord in mice. 13 QTLs located on Chromosome 2, 4, 8, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19 and X, respectively, for these two traits were found. Six QTLs were responsible for the cord weight, four for the(More)
