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)
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)
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)
