This study aimed to explore the effect of environmental enrichment (EE) on the reinstatement of ethanol-induced conditioned place preference (CPP) in C57Bl/6J mice. To investigate the effect of training dose on the extinction and relapse of ethanol-induced CPP, doses of ethanol were applied and we found 0.8 g/kg and 1.6 g/kg training doses lead to(More)
Progesterone is an efficient candidate for treating stroke and traumatic brain damage. The current study was designed to investigate the effects of progesterone on glucose transporter proteins (GLUT1 and GLUT3) during hypoxic-ischemic injury in a neonatal rat model. We demonstrated strong staining for GLUT1 in the walls of blood vessels and GLUT3(More)
Progesterone (PROG) has been shown to exhibit a protective function against hypoxic-ischemic brain damage. The aim of the present study was to study the effects of PROG in a neonatal rat model of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury. A total of 30 Wistar rats, aged 7 days, were randomly divided into three groups: Sham, model and PROG. The rats in the model and(More)
An environmentally friendly nanoparticle-supported catalyst was successfully prepared via in situ ionic complexation between imidazolium-based polymer ionic liquid (PIL) and poly(l-prolinamide-co-MAA). The physical and chemical properties of the obtained nanoparticles were characterized by TEM, FTIR, XPS, and static water contact angle experiments. The(More)
TWIK-related acid-sensitive potassium channels (TASK3) are pharmacological targets of CNS inflammation induced by acidification. They function as molecular switches between survival and death of neurons. In this report, TASK3 cloned from human brain cDNA was tagged with enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP), and the fusion gene was transiently expressed(More)

Safety is one of the key problems people concern about most not only at present but also in the future. Currently there are many hidden troubles threatening safety. Particularly, the safety problems in coal mines are very serious and in great need of management and control, because they not only influence humanpsilas increasing demand for energy, but also(More)
Naked-eye detection of amino acids (AA) in water is of great significance in the field of bioanalytical applications. Herein, polymerized ionic liquids (PILs) with controlled chain length structures were synthesized via reversible addition-fragmentation chain-transfer (RAFT) polymerization and post-quaternization approach. The AA recognition performance of(More)
Regulating serotonin expression can be used to treat psychotic depression. Mifepristone, a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, is an effective candidate for psychotic depression treatment. However, the underlying mechanism related to serotonin transporter expression is poorly understood. In this study, we cloned the human brain serotonin transporter into(More)
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a serious genetic disorder that can lead to chronic renal disease. Protein dysfunction caused by mutations in the genes polycystic kidney disease 1 (PKD1) and polycystic kidney disease 2 (PKD2) is an important factor in the pathogenesis of ADPKD. In the present study, 30 Chinese patients with confirmed(More)
Tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS) is a promising analytical approach for some two-dimensional materials and offers the possibility to correlate imaging and chemical data. Tip-enhanced Raman spectra of graphene are discussed in some details, including substrate, gap between tip-apex and sample surface as well as Ag-nanowire. The TERS spectra give special(More)
