Dramatic increase in the use of nanoparticles (NPs) in a variety of applications greatly increased the likelihood of the release of NPs into the environment. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) are among the most commonly used NPs, and it has been shown that ZnO NPs were harmful to several different plants. We report here the effects of ZnO NPs exposure on(More)
BACKGROUND The etiology of birth defects has been widely studied but is not yet fully clarified, previously published data had suggested that maternal age or parity maybe involved, but without consistent conclusions. METHODS A population-based, case-control study was nested in a cohort of perinatal infants born from 2010 to 2012 in Baoan District,(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The roles of C677T and A1298C polymorphisms in methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene in orofacial clefts (OFCs) risk have been substantially explored, but the results remain conflicting. To address this gap, we conducted a meta-analysis involving all eligible studies. METHODS Electronic literature searches of the PubMed,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Store-operated calcium (SOC) channels are thought to play a critical role in immune responses, inflammatory diseases and chronic pain. The aim of this study was to explore the potential role and mechanisms of SOC channels in collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH The CIA mouse model was used to examine the effects(More)
The present study combined a time-locked paradigm and high-time-resolution event-related potential (ERP) recordings to examine different phases of working memory, including early visual processing and late memory-related processes of encoding, maintenance, and retrieval, in 67 adults with schizophrenia and 46 healthy controls. Alterations in ERP components(More)
The morphology of the microcirculation of the pancreas in 20 monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of vascular corrosion casts and light microscopy (LM) of China ink-injected/cleared tissues. The principal results were that 1) insulo-acinar portal vessels were found between the endocrine and exocrine parts in the(More)
The microcirculation of the pancreas in 20 monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was further studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of vascular corrosion casts and light microscopy (LM) of Chinese ink-injected/cleared tissues. The results revealed that 91% of islets observed received arterial blood from the terminal branches of the intralobular arteries--the(More)
To investigate the role of Helicobacter Pylori (HP) infection and other factors in the development of stomach carcinoma, a matched case-control study was conducted in Dalian, China. A total number of 95 paired cases and controls were involved in the study. The cases were divided into two histological types: diffuse- and intestinal-type. IgG antibody of HP(More)
