Background: Glucocorticoids acting as anti-inflammatory or immunosuppressive drugs have been shown to exert most of their effects genomically. Recent findings suggest that non-genomic activity might be relatively more important in mediating the therapeutic effects of high-dose pulsed glucocorticoid. However, few non-genomic anti-inflammatory effects were(More)
Ethylene promotes stomatal closure via inducing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) generation. H2O2 can be catalytically synthesized by several enzymes in plants. Here, by means of stomatal bioassay, the analysis of enzyme activity and using laser-scanning confocal microscopy based on the H2O2-sensitive probe 2′,7′-dichlorodihydrofluorescein diacetate (H2DCF-DA), the(More)
Tibetan (TB) and Bama (BM) miniature pigs are two popular pig breeds that are used as experimental animals in China due to their small body size. Here, we analyzed single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in gene fragments that are closely related to growth traits [growth hormone (GH), growth hormone receptor (GHR), and insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1)] in(More)
Introduction: Epilepsy is a common neurological condition. In up to 80% of patients with medial temporal lobe epilepsy associated with hippocampal sclerosis, seizures are refractory to treatment with antiepileptic medications. For this group of patients, anterior temporal lobe resection (ATLR) plus amygdalo-hippocampectomy is an effective means of(More)
