The present study was designed to investigate the relaxant effect of isopropyl 3-(3, 4-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-hydroxypropanoate (IDHP), a new metabolite from Salvia miltiorrhiza, on rat mesenteric artery. Isolated mesenteric arterial rings were mounted in organ baths and the isometric tension changes were measured continuously by a sensitive myograph system.(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS The effects of human Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (WJ-MSC) on acute and chronic kidney injury induced by ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) were assessed. METHODS WJ-MSC were injected intravenously immediately after solitary kidney ischemia for 45 min. Cells were labeled with 5-bromo-2'deoxy-uridine (BrdU) for tracing(More)
Compound Danshen Dripping Pill (CDDP) is an important drug widely used for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. An active component Danshensu (DS) of CDDP was separated by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography using column-switching system and analyzed by electrospray mass spectrometry. With this validated assay the pharmacokinetics of(More)
OBJECTIVE In order to observe the growth and metastasis of the tumor directly, a new orthotopic retinoblastoma model was established with human RB cells expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP). METHODS pEGFP-N(1), the eukaryotic expressive plasmid of GFP, was transferred into human RB cell line HXO-RB(44) by liposome Dosper. Then, the cell clones(More)
Reduced seed yields following self-pollination have repeatedly been observed, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive when self-pollen tubes can readily grow into ovaries, because pre-, post-zygotic late-acting self-incompatibility (LSI), or early-acting inbreeding depression (ID) can induce self-sterility. The main objective of this study was to(More)
The development of new approaches to study the affinity between ligands and G-protein-coupled receptors proves to be of growing interest for pharmacologists, chemists, and biologists. The aim of this work was to determine the binding of seven drugs to β2-adrenoceptors by frontal analysis using immobilized receptor stationary phase. The dissociation(More)
Nitrate pollution in groundwater has become a worldwide problem. It may affect the water quality for daily use and thus the health of people. The temporal and spatial characteristics of nitrate pollution in the groundwater were addressed by sample analysis of the drinkable water from 157 wells in Hailun, Heilongjiang, northeastern China. It was found that(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects and mechanisms of electroporation on the therapy of transplanted retinoblastoma tumor (RB) by transferring the expressive plasmids of sFlk-1 and ExTek. METHODS The effects and mechanisms of sFlk-1 and ExTek on RB is validated both in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, pCI-sFlk-1 was transfected into HEK293 (human embryonic(More)
To assess the relative importance of environmental selection, dispersal and stochastic processes in structuring ecological communities, we conducted a bacterial community assembly experiment using microcosms filled with sterile liquid medium under field conditions in the Inner Mongolian grasslands. Multiple replicate microcosms containing different carbon(More)
