The consecutive monoculturing of peanut seriously affects its yield and quality in the red soil regions of southern China. Different control measures for consecutively monocultured peanut fields should be explored to ensure the sustainable development of the local peanut industry. In this study, the influence of two different regimes, the intercropping of(More)
The high incidence of various soil-borne diseases in the monoculture field of peanut is a major production constraint in the red soil regions of southern China. The peanut root exudates are generally thought to play an important role in regulating soil-borne pathogens. The responses of the soil-borne pathogens, Fusarium oxysporum and F. solani to the peanut(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether Ginkgo biloba extract can augment endothelial progenitor cells numbers, and promote the cells' proliferative, migratory, adhesive, and in vitro vasculogenesis capacity. Total mononuclear cells were isolated from peripheral blood by Ficoll density gradient centrifugation, and then the cells were plated on(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Cell labeling with superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) nanoparticles enables non-invasive tracking of transplanted cells. The aim of this study was to investigate whether SPIO nanoparticles have an effect on endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) functional activity and the feasibility of a protocol for labeling swine- and rat-origin EPC using(More)
BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction is thought to play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis induced by ox-LDL. Recently, a variety of evidence suggested that endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) participated in neovascularization and reendothelialization. However, effects of ox-LDL on EPCs number and activity are ill understood. METHODS(More)
Recently, some studies have shown that nicotine increased neovascularization, which involves endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). The effects of nicotine on EPCs are still unclear at present. Therefore, the authors investigated whether nicotine had influences on EPC number and activity. The EPCs were stimulated with nicotine (to make a series of final(More)
Rhizoma polygoni cuspidate, used as a traditional Chinese herb, offered the therapeutic potential for cardiovascular diseases. Resveratrol, extracted from root of the rhizoma polygoni cuspidate has sparked increasing interest in therapeutic application. Resveratrol was shown to exert a variety of pharmacological effects including cardioprotective and cancer(More)
AIM To investigate whether puerarin can augment endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) numbers, promote EPC proliferative, migratory, adhesive, and in vitro vasculogenesis capacity. METHODS EPCs were characterized as adherent cells by double staining of DiLDL-uptake and lectin binding under a laser scanning confocal microscope. Expression of KDR, VEGFR-2,(More)
AIM This study was to investigate the effect of serum from rats treated orally with GUD on vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) proliferation in vitro. METHODS Cell proliferation was measured by Methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium (MTT) assay. Expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and proto-oncogene c-myc were measured by immunochemical(More)
We report a patient with atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) with bidirectional conduction over an anteroseptal accessory pathway (AP) who underwent successful ablation in the non-coronary aortic sinus (AS). In three previous attempts, the intracardiac recordings showed an anteroseptal AP with antegrade and retrograde conduction that failed to be(More)
