Obesity is associated closely with the metabolic syndrome (MS). It is well known that obesity-induced chronic inflammation plays a fundamental role in the pathogenesis of MS. White adipose tissue (AT) is the primary site for the initiation and exacerbation of obesity-associated inflammation. Exploring the mechanisms of white AT inflammation and resetting(More)
INTRODUCTION The etiology of Parkinson's disease (PD) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the association between common pathogenic infections and PD. METHODS Antibody titers to common infectious pathogens including cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein Barr virus (EBV),herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1), Borrelia burgdorferi (B. burgdorferi),(More)

Soliton mode locking and femtosecond pulse generation have recently been demonstrated in high-Q optical microcavities and provide a new way to miniaturize frequency comb systems, as well as create integrated comb systems on a chip. However, triggering the mode-locking process is complicated by a well-known thermal hysteresis that can destabilize the(More)
A Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) is a collection of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other using multihop wireless links without utilizing any fixed based station infrastructure and centralized management. It is very necessary for MANETs to have an efficient routing and quality of service (QoS) mechanism to support diverse applications.(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effects of allitridin on the expression of transcription factors T-bet and GATA-3 in mice infected by murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV). A BALB/c mouse model system of MCMV infection was established. Twenty mice were allocated randomly into an allitridin-treated group (n = 10) and a placebo control group (n = 10). The(More)
Blood transcriptome has emerged as a potential resource for the discovery of biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the validity of blood transcriptome in the early diagnosis of AD has yet to be extensively tested. In this work, we analyzed published data on AD blood transcriptome and revealed the characteristic perturbation of cellular(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the degeneration of basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, whose survival and function are affected by neurotrophins and their receptors. The impaired signaling pathway of brain-derived neurotrophic factor/tropomyosin-related kinase B (BDNF/TrkB) is considered to play an important role in AD pathogenesis. To(More)
