In vitro neurogenesis from neural progenitor cells isolated from the hippocampus region of the brain of adult rats exposed to ethanol during early development through their alcohol-drinking mothers.
A significant alteration in neurogenesis and synapse formation in adult rats exposed to ethanol at early development through their alcohol-drinking mothers is suggested. Expand
Electrospun fibrous mats as skeletons to produce free-standing MOF membranes
Nanofibrous mats produced by electrospinning are ideal porous substrates for developing chemical systems due to their high specific surface area, large porosity, and enormous structural and chemicalExpand
Effects of chronic ethanol drinking on the blood brain barrier and ensuing neuronal toxicity in alcohol-preferring rats subjected to intraperitoneal LPS injection.
LPS injection in WC-LPS rats transiently disrupted the BBB and Lack of JNK activation and CASPASE-8 may be responsible for lack of apoptosis in endothelial cells and vice versa in neurons. Expand
Preconcentration of Cu(II), Fe(III) and Pb(II) with 2-((2-aminoethylamino)methyl)phenol-functionalized activated carbon followed by ICP-OES determination.
The proposed method has been validated by analyzing a certified reference material and successfully applied to the preconcentration and determination of Cu(II), Fe(III), and Pb(II) in actual samples with satisfactory results. Expand
Anti-inflammatory potency of nano-formulated puerarin and curcumin in rats subjected to the lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation.
The present observations suggest that a bi-functional AuNP loaded with CU and PU may effectively suppress the LPS-induced inflammation and cytotoxicity provided the following conditions are met. Expand
Herbal mixtures consisting of puerarin and either polyenylphosphatidylcholine or curcumin provide comprehensive protection against alcohol-related disorders in P rats receiving free choice water and
It is shown that alcohol drinking for 70 days caused liver inflammation characterized by elevated tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-1beta, and matrix metalloproteinase-9 expression and dysregulated lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced pleurisy, and a mixture consisting of PU and either SPCh or CU may provide alternative therapy for alcohol-related disorders.

Effects of Bacterial Toxins on Endothelial Tight Junction In Vitro: A Mechanism-Based Investigation
It is shown that LPS and LTA interacted with the endothelial cells and disrupted the tight junction between the cells that increased the barrier's permeability, and the CD14-TLR cascade that participates in the inflammatory effects of toxins may not participate in the toxin-induced barrier disruption in vitro.

A fast-response fluorescent probe for hypochlorous acid detection and its application in exogenous and endogenous HOCl imaging of living cells.
Experimental data showed that NBD-DOP could detect HOCl with ultrafast response, high sensitivity and high selectivity in a wide pH range and could also be used to detect the myeloperoxidase enzyme that produces HOCl. Expand
Ultra-sensitive fluorescent probes for hypochlorite acid detection and exogenous/endogenous imaging of living cells.
Two fluorescent probes (Naph-1 and Naph-2), which can be prepared via a facile process, have been developed to detect hypochlorite acid (HOCl), and have been applied to confocal fluorescence imaging of exogenous and endogenous HOCl in living cells. Expand
Construction of an alkaline phosphatase-specific two-photon probe and its imaging application in living cells and tissues.
A new two-photon fluorescent probe (TP-Phos) is reported to selectively detect ALP activity and offers a number of advantages over previously reported probes, such as fast reaction kinetics, high sensitivity and low cytotoxicity. Expand
