Disturbing mitotic progression via targeted anti-mitotic therapy is an attractive strategy for cancer treatment. Therefore, the exploration and elucidation of molecular targets and pathways in mitosis are critical for the development of anti-mitotic drugs. Here, we show that cell division cycle 5-like (Cdc5L), a pre-mRNA splicing factor, is a regulator of… (More)
This study aimed to investigate seed germination, seedling growth, and antioxidative responses in two wheat cultivars, Ningchun and Xihan, exposed to different H2O2 concentrations. Ningchun exhibited higher germination rate but lower root and shoot growth than Xihan when exposed to H2O2 treatment. Assays using fluorescent dye H2DCFDA and propidium iodide… (More)
SUMMARY Cerebral venous and sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a rare but life-threatening disease accounting for less than 1% of all strokes and a poor outcome in around 10% of all patients. Early diagnosis is crucial because anticoagulation may reduce the risk of a fatal outcome and severe disability. However, the absence of specific features and the possibility… (More)
It is well known that the preoptic-anterior hypothalamus (PO/AH), containing temperature-sensitive and -insensitive neurons plays an important role in precise thermoregulatory responses. Previous in vivo studies suggest that the arginine vasopressin (AVP) is an important endogenous mediator in thermoregulation, since AVP and V(1a) vasopressin receptor… (More)
