Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) displays vasodilative, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and cytoprotective activities. The objective of this study was to evaluate the inhibitory effect of H2S on bleomycin (BLM)-induced pulmonary fibrosis in rats and its possible mechanisms. Fifty-four pathogen-free Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into three groups: control,(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Danshen (Salvia miltiorrhiza) has been widely prescribed in traditional folk medicine for treatment of hepatic and cardiovascular diseases in China and other Asian countries for several hundred years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty male mice were randomly divided into five groups: control, iron overload, low-dose Danshen(More)
Image registration is fundamental and crucial to remote sensing. However getting highly accurate registration performance automatically and fast for large-field images consistently is a challenge. As a work around to this problem, we propose a new image registration concept based on visual attention in this paper. This concept employs the advantages of(More)

Tumor microenvironment plays a critical role in tumor initiation and progression. Components in the microenvironment can modulate the growth of tumor cells, their ability to progress and metastasize. A major venue of communication between tumor cells and their microenvironment is through polypeptide growth factors and receptors for these growth factors.(More)
Hypothesis / aims of study Substance P and related neuropeptides are expressed in bladder afferent neurons and released in the bladder by capsaicin-induced stimulation of nociceptive afferent nerves. Substance P activates multiple neurokinin receptors (NK1, NK2 and NK3) and may function as a neurotransmitter in the peripheral and central nervous system.(More)
Suffering from ambiguous estimation or heavy computation complexity load, the radial velocity estimation of moving targets becomes the bottleneck of the synthetic aperture radar-ground moving target indication system. In order to improve the radial velocity estimation efficiency, we have proposed an efficient Radon transform (RT) estimation (ERTE) method by(More)
Bacterial infections are a serious issue for public health and represent one of the major challenges of modern medicine. In this work, a selective antimicrobial strategy based on triggering of pore-forming toxin, which is secreted by infective bacteria, was designed to fight Staphylococcus aureus. The antimicrobial activity is realized by employing(More)
