Mutations of the B-type endothelin receptor (ETRB) gene have been found to cause defects in the development of enteric neurons, which resulted in aganglionic megacolon in rodents and humans. To determine the distribution of ETRB mRNA during neural development, mainly in the CNS, in situ hybridization was applied at various developmental stages of rat. ETRB(More)
The causes and pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are still not clearly understood. This study aims to prove the important role of rifaximin played in inflammatory reaction caused by abnormity of the intestinal mucosal immune system. Intestinal microflora can greatly promote and maintain the inflammatory reaction of IBD, therefore, antibiotics(More)
Decreased mitochondrial Complex I activities and a 4,977-bp deletion in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have been reported in patients with Parkinson's disease. Based on the assumption of possible links between this 4,977-bp deletion and the etiology of Parkinson's disease, we analyzed mtDNA of blood cells from 15 patients with young-onset Parkinson's disease(More)
There were a lot of studies related to global gene expression in cells infected with influenza A virus. However, few studies have focused on the systematic analysis of the regulation of cell signaling cascade by influenza A virus. To understand fully the regulation of cell signaling cascade associated with influenza virus infection, we used cDNA microarray(More)
Gene therapy requires safe and effective vectors to deliver genes to their target site of action. Non-viral gene delivery systems have attracted growing attention due to their low toxicity, low immunogenicity and ease of production compared to viral vectors. Most non-viral gene delivery systems enter cells via endocytic pathways, and their escape from(More)
