Methylmercury intake for adult males of twelve provinces in China was estimated by means of the 2007 Chinese Total Diet Study. Methylmercury levels were measured in twelve food groups of each province of four regions and was only found in the aquatic food groups. The range for methylmercury contents of aquatic foods was 3.29-31.60 µg kg(-1), being 50-87% of(More)
The α-actinin 3 ( ACTN3) gene is absent in 18% of healthy white individuals owing to homozygosity for a premature stop codon polymorphism (rs1815739) and is only expressed in the Z line of fast glycolytic muscle fibres. Previous studies have shown highly significant association between ACTN3 genotype and sprint/power performance, while the nonfunctional(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The mechanisms of abnormal lymphocyte apoptosis in sepsis are only partially defined. The present study was designed to investigate whether the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is implicated in the extensive apoptosis of lymphocytes in sepsis. METHODS C57BL/6 mice were randomized into cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) and sham operation groups.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of Tongxinluo capsule (TXLC) on experimental myocardial ischemia and infarction, arrhythmia and hyperlipidemia. METHODS Using the methods of epicardial mapping and NBT-ink double staining and the ratio of tissue in myocardial infarction in which the anterior coronary artery was ligated in anesthetized dogs, acute myocardial(More)
A fluoroquinolone prodrug, PA2808, was prepared and shown to convert to the highly active parent drug PA2789. In vitro and in vivo activation of PA2808 by alkaline phosphatase was demonstrated using disk diffusion and rat lung infection models. The water solubility of PA2808 showed a marked increase compared to PA2789 over a pH range suitable for aerosol(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of recombinant human granulocyte colony stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) on accelerating neutrophil recovery and decrease fatal infections for childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML). METHODS From November 1992 to March 1997, 45 patients were enrolled into our study and 15 were newly diagnosed. All were treated with high dose(More)
The petals of pansy (Viola × wittrockiana Gams.) 'Mengdie' exhibit a cyanic blotched pigmentation pattern. The accumulation of anthocyanins, cyanidin and delphinidin, was detected in the upper epidermal cells of the cyanic blotches. In order to elucidate the mechanism by which cyanic blotches are formed in pansy petal, the expression level of genes involved(More)
NiSe@NiOOH core-shell hyacinth-like nanostructures supported on nickel foam (NF) have been successfully synthesized by a facile solvothermal selenization and subsequent in situ electrochemical oxidation (ISEO). First, the unique NiSe/NF nanopillar arrays were prepared in N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) as a precursor template that can provide a large surface(More)
Previous studies on the neural basis of insight reflected weak consistency except for the anterior cingulate cortex. The present work adopted the semantic and homophonic punny riddle to explore the uniformity and nonuniformity of neural activities correlated to different insight problem solving. Results showed that in the early period of insight solving,(More)
AIM To evaluate the differences between patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson variant of multiple system atrophy (MSAp) at fractional anisotropy (FA) in the white matter when using the tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS) algorithm to provide objective markers for a differential diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Diffusion-tensor imaging(More)
