Valproate (VPA) is an anticonvulsant and mood-stabilizing drug. It is a broad-spectrum histone deacetylase inhibitor with neuroprotective effects. We investigated whether VPA reduces retinal neuronal death induced by optic nerve crush (ONC). To evaluate further VPA-mediated neuroprotection on retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), another histone deacetylase (HDAC)(More)
Urate oxidase (E.C. 1.7.3.3) catalyzes the oxidation of uric acid to allantoin in most mammals except humans and certain primates. The amino-terminal amino acid sequence for porcine urate oxidase was determined and used in a novel procedure for generating complementary DNA (cDNA) probes to this amino acid sequence. The procedure is based on the polymerase(More)

Dynamic remanent hysteresis loops were measured at several time scales for a L1 0 ordered Fe 45 Pt 55 nanoparticle array sample. At a fixed percentage of magnetization switched, Sharrock's formula was applied to obtain both the thermal stability factor and the intrinsic switching field. From the magnetization dependence of the thermal stability factor, the(More)

Recently, self-organized magnetic arrays (SOMAs) have received a great deal of attention because of the potential of achieving magnetic data storage densities greater than 1 Tbit/in 2. SOMA involves the chemical preparation of self-assembled arrays of alloyed nanoparticles (such as FePt), which can be subsequently annealed to form an L1 0 high(More)
The oscillatory potentials (OPs) were determined in 120 normal eyes of 60 Chinese subjects. The results showed that at least 4 wavelets (OP1, OP2, OP3 and OP4) could be recorded in all eyes. The amplitudes and implicit times showed no differences between either right and left eyes or sexes. The OP amplitudes were highest in the 10-20 year age group and(More)
