In order to probe into the effects of garlic oil (GO) on the hepatic CYP2E1, CYP1A2 and CYP3A, male Kun-Ming mice were treated with GO (100 mg/kg body weight) or corn oil for 1 day or consecutive 60 days, respectively, and then the protein expressions and the activities of the enzymes were examined. GO did not alter the physical activities of mice and did(More)
The morphogenesis of duck enteritis virus (DEV) and distribution in vivo were observed by electron microscopy after ducks were infected experimentally with DEV virulent strain. The investigation showed that a few typical herpesvirus virions and nucleocapsids were first observed in the spleen, thymus, and bursa of Fabricius (BF), and many nucleocapsids,(More)
Tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (TOCP) could induce degeneration of long, large diameter axons within the central and peripheral nervous system of susceptible species including human being and hens, which is referred to as organophosphorus-ester induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN). The mechanisms involved are not understood. Neuropathologic observations suggested(More)
AIMS The association between CD14-159C>T polymorphisms and alcoholic liver disease (ALD) risk has been investigated in many studies, but the results were inconsistent. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between the CD14-159C>T polymorphisms and the risk for ALD. METHODS A comprehensive literature search was conducted to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the dynamic alterations of neurofilament subunits (NF) in sciatic nerve of hens with organophosphorus ester induced the delayed neurotoxicity or neuropathy (OPIDN). METHODS Hens with OPIDN were produced by giving 30 mg/kg methamidophos subcutaneously to the 10-month-old Roman hens daily for 15 days, and sacrificed after(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the dynamic changes of alpha-tubulin, beta-tubulin and beta-actin in sciatic nerve of hen with organophosphorus ester-induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN). METHODS OPIDN was induced in 10-month-old Roman hens by daily subcutaneous administration of 30 mg/kg methamidophos for 15 days. Hens were sacrificed 2, 10, and 23 days(More)
Replication of duck plague virus(DPV) in artificially infected ducks were detected by in situ hybridization (ISH) which employed a 37bp oligonucleotide as probe designed according to DPV DNA sequence in GenBank. The results indicated that DPV DNA was detected in liver, intestine and bursa Fabricius at 4 h, in spleen and esophagus at 6h, in thymus at 12h(More)
Exposure chronically to n-hexane produces central-peripheral axonopathy mediated by 2,5-hexanedione (HD). Studies have shown neurofilament (NF) subunit proteins are decreased substantially in cerebral cortices, optic axons, spinal cords, and sciatic nerves from HD-exposed rats. To deeply investigate the alterations in NF contents in HD neuropathy, the(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), as typical environmental estrogen disruptors, are a structurally-related group of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons that are composed of 209 isomers and present as a mixture in the environment. PCBs congener with different numbers and positions of chlorine atoms substituted on the biphenyl moiety. Aroclor-1254 is a mixture(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of 1-bromopropane (1-BP) on the functions of learning-memory and the central cholinergic system in rats. METHODS Forty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups: low 1-BP group (200 mg/kg), middle 1-BP group (400 mg/kg), high 1-BP group (800 mg/kg) and control group, and the exposure time was 7 days. The Morris(More)
