To examine molecular events in hippocampus associated with aging and acupuncture effect, we employed cDNA arrays providing data of 588 genes to define transcriptional patterns. Male 8-month-old SAMP10 and its homologous SAMRl were selected and randomly divided into four groups: R1 control group (Rc), P10 control group (Pc), P10 acupuncture group (Pa) and(More)
Background. Herb-derived compound andrographolide sulfonate (called Xiyanping injection) recommended control measure for severe hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) by the Ministry of Health (China) during the 2010 epidemic. However, there is a lack of good quality evidence directly comparing the efficacy of Andrographolide Sulfonate combination therapy(More)
Ovarian steroid hormones regulate follicular growth and atresia. This study aims to determine whether key ovarian sterol-regulatory genes are differentially expressed in Hu sheep under different short-term nutritional regimens. Estrus was synchronized using intravaginal progestagen sponges. The ewes were assigned randomly to 3 groups. On d 6 to 12 of their(More)
Protein-binding peptide is recently recognized as an effective artificial affinity reagent for protein assays. However, its application is hampered by the limited choices of available signal readout methods. Herein, we report a general electrochemical signal readout method for protein-binding peptides exploiting the host-guest chemistry of cucurbituril. Via(More)
Objective: The role of symptoms/signs for American College of Rheumatology 20% response (ACR20) prediction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) analyzed with decision tree and neuron network was explored. Methods: 489 patients were randomly divided to receive Western medicine (WM) therapy, 247 cases; and traditional Chinese medicine (CM) therapy (TCM), 242 cases.(More)
This paper reports a method for electrical communication between the inner part of cells and an electrode with the help of iRGD peptide. Due to the enhancement of the cell penetration caused by iRGD peptide, DNA molecules, previously modified on a gold electrode surface, can be easily transfected into the cells. At the same time, doxorubicin, an anticancer(More)
In this work, we have proposed a novel method to specifically assay the molecular chaperone activity of HSP70 based on the HSP70-substrate peptide interaction. By selectively labeling the substrate peptide of HSP70 via host-guest interaction with two different cucurbituril species, the HSP70-substrate peptide interaction can be transduced into detectable(More)
Hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD), with poorly understood pathogenesis, has become a major public health threat across Asia Pacific. In order to characterize the metabolic changes of HFMD and to unravel the regulatory role of clinical intervention, we have performed a metabolomics approach in a clinical trial. In this study, metabolites profiling was(More)
This paper proposed a relative value method for measuring the indicators of cardiac reserve and investigated the application on monitoring and evaluating cardiac function for pregnant women. A heart sound sensor is placed at the precordial region to detect phonocardiogram. In order to access the cardiac reserve mobilization level during pregnancy, the(More)
