BACKGROUND Microglia might play an important role in nociceptive processing and hyperalgesia by neuroinflammatory process. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) expressed on microglia might play a central role in the modulation of microglia activity. However the roles of microglia and MR in radicular pain were not well understood. This study sought to investigate(More)
In this paper, we continue our study of the canonical metrics on the moduli space of curves. We first prove the bounded geometry of the Ricci and perturbed Ricci metrics. By carefully choosing the pertubation constant and by studying the asymptotics, we show that the Ricci and holomorphic sectional curvatures of the perturbed Ricci metric are bounded from(More)
High levels of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) are colocalized in the substantia gelatinosa. This indicates that the pain pathways appear to be under a strong regulation of these receptors. However, their respective effects on pain behaviors and their interaction remain unclear. Here we show that the nociceptive behaviors(More)
— We propose and demonstrate a single-fiber bi-directional wavelength division multiplexing self-healing ring network for metro-access applications. By incorporating a simple bi-directional optical add-drop multiplexer at each network node as well as employing our proposed alternate-path switching scheme, the bi-directional traffic can be restored promptly(More)
Glioblastoma is the most malignant and common intrinsic brain tumor, but the molecular mechanism of glioma pathophysiology is poorly understood. Recent data have shown that microRNAs regulate the expression of several genes associated with human cancer. In the present study, the function of miR-34c in glioma cells was analyzed. It was demonstrated that(More)
