The canonical transient receptor potential channels (TRPCs) are Ca(2+)-permeable nonselective cation channels with various physiological functions. Here, we report that TRPC6, a member of the TRPC family, promotes hippocampal neuron dendritic growth. The peak expression of TRPC6 in rat hippocampus was between postnatal day 7 and 14, a period known to be(More)
Cognitive processes require working memory (WM) that involves a brief period of memory retention known as the delay period. Elevated delay-period activity in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) has been observed, but its functional role in WM tasks remains unclear. We optogenetically suppressed or enhanced activity of pyramidal neurons in mouse mPFC during(More)
Heterosynaptic long-term depression (hLTD) at untetanized synapses accompanying the induction of long-term potentiation (LTP) spatially sharpens the activity-induced synaptic potentiation; however, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. We found that hLTD in the hippocampal CA1 region is caused by stimulation-induced ATP release from astrocytes that(More)
Cyclohexylamino-substituted hypocrellin B (CHAHB) has been synthesized with the aim of improving the red absorption and specific affinity for malignant tumors over those of the parent compound. Irradiation of a deoxygenated DMSO solution of CHAHB generates a strong electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signal, which is assigned to the semiquinone radical(More)
In this paper, a novel ultra-wideband (UWB) pulse shaping method was presented to generate IR-UWB waveforms which can suppress multiple narrow-band interferences. The proposed method includes two steps. First, to completely satisfy and fully utilize the FCC power spectral density mask, an “interim-pulse” was generated by combining several(More)
Gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) internal SF6 gas produces specific decomposition components under partial discharge (PD). By detecting these characteristic decomposition components, such information as the type and level of GIS internal insulation deterioration can be obtained effectively, and the status of GIS internal insulation can be evaluated. SF6 was(More)
Ni-based bimetallic alloys have superior physiochemical characteristics compared to monometallic Ni. In this study, a new type of low cost bimetallic NimCon (n + m = 4) electrocatalysts with high active surface were synthesized on Ti substrate through a hydrogen evolution assisted electrodeposition method. The as-prepared NimCon were characterized by XRD,(More)
Detection of multiple toxic mycotoxins is of importance in food quality control. Surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRi) is an advanced tool for simultaneously multiple detections with accuracy; however, it suffers from limited sensitivity due to the instrumental constraint and small sizes of mycotoxins with only one epitope for an insensitive competitive(More)
The detection of partial discharge through analysis of SF(6) gas components in gas-insulated switchgear, is significant for the diagnosis and assessment of the operating state of power equipment. The present study proposes the use of a TiO(2) nanotube array sensor for detecting the SF(6) decomposition product SO(2), and the application of the anodic(More)
