N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor overactivation-mediated oxidative stress has been proposed to contribute to brain injury. Metallothionein-I/II (MT-I/II), a member of cysteine-rich metalloproteins, has been found to express in the central nervous system primarily in cortical tissues and be upregulated following brain injury. To address the role of(More)
A high-efficiency Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation system was established through testing and optimising a range of variables using soybean cotyledonary as explants and glufosinate as selective agent. Seven cultivars (Heihe 19, Heihe 25, Heinong 37, Ha 03-3, YC-1, YC-2, and Zhonghuang 39) were used to screen the optimal cultivars. As a(More)
Recent work has demonstrated that behavioral manipulations targeting specific cortical areas during prolonged wakefulness lead to a region-specific homeostatic increase in theta activity (5-9 Hz), suggesting that theta waves could represent transient neuronal OFF periods (local sleep). In awake rats, the occurrence of an OFF period in a brain area relevant(More)
Molybdenum cofactor (Moco) is required for the activities of Moco-dependant enzymes. Cofactor for nitrate reductase and xanthine dehydrogenase (Cnx1) is known to be involved in the biosynthesis of Moco in plants. In this work, a soybean (Glycine max L.) Cnx1 gene (GmCnx1) was transferred into soybean using Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation(More)
