With an application to oil economies in the Former Soviet Union (FSU) region, empirical(More)
What is the impact of a bank failure on the whole banking industry? To resolve this issue, the paper develops a transfer entropy-based method to determine the interbank exposure matrix between banks. This method constructs the interbank market structure by calculating the transfer entropy matrix using bank stock price sequences. This paper also evaluates(More)
In the process of hepatic fibrosis, hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) can be activated by many inflammatory cytokines. The transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is one of the main profibrogenic mediators. Recently, some studies have also shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) play essential roles in the progress of liver fibrosis by being involved in the(More)
Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), a well-identified hypoxia-related protein, is involved in regulating the biological functions of various cell types including neurons. The traditional biological function of HIF-1α is promoting the transcription of some pro-survival genes when exposing to low oxygen conditions. Meanwhile, some studies also point out(More)
BACKGROUND Remote ischemic perconditioning (RIPerC), remote ischemic postconditioning (RIPostC), and remote ischemic perconditioning + postconditioning (RIPerC + RIPostC) protect against renal ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI). However, the most beneficial approach among these is not known. AIMS To compare the protective effects and study the mechanisms(More)
