This study investigated transsynaptic neuronal damage and microglial reaction in the spinal cord contralateral to focal cerebral ischaemia in rats induced by permanent occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA). Three and five days after MCA occlusion, some neurons in the dorsal horn of lumbar spinal cord underwent degeneration and they appeared to(More)
The response of microglia and astrocytes, as detected immunohistochemically by the monoclonal antibody OX-42 and anti-glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) respectively, was studied in the rat lumbar spinal cord following focal cerebral ischaemia produced by permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) above the rhinal fissure. At 1 and 2 days(More)
This study examines the effect of Propentofylline (PPF) on reactive microglia in the lumbar spinal cord in rats following focal cerebral ischaemia produced by permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Our results showed that daily treatment of PPF beginning at 24 h after MCA occlusion for 2 or 4 consecutive days markedly suppressed the(More)
This study examined c-fos protein expression in the brain and spinal cord of rats following permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) above the rhinal fissure. At 1 h after right-sided MCA occlusion, Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-LI) was detected in neurons not only in the ipsilateral cerebral cortex but also in the spinal cord. In the(More)
Germination studies are important for collecting information on field seedling recruitment, plant conservation and restoration. This study investigated the role of light, temperature, nitrogen, water stress and burial depth in controlling germination of Stipa bungeana seeds. S. bungeana seeds are photo-inhibited; light significantly decreased seed(More)
This study is a sequel of our previous work which demonstrated the expression of Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-LI) in the spinal cord motoneurons of rat following permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA). We report here Fos-LI in the hypothalamic, medullary and thoracic spinal cord neurons some of them are believed to be involved in(More)
The study was aimed at the investigation of the rat corticospinal system both functionally and anatomically using as a functional marker the immediate early gene c-fos, combined with retrograde tracing with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). This was achieved by mapping c-fos induction immunocytochemically in the spinal cord as a result of occlusion of the(More)
Studying seed dormancy and its consequent effect can provide important information for vegetation restoration and management. The present study investigated seed dormancy, seedling emergence and seed survival in the soil seed bank of Stipa bungeana, a grass species used in restoration of degraded land on the Loess Plateau in northwest China. Dormancy of(More)
The evolution of landslide displacement is affected by many factors. This paper studied the displacement monitoring data of Liangshuijing Landslide with Factor Analysis Method and found that the dominant factors influencing landslide displacement were in decreasing sequence: cumulative rainfall of anterior two months> rainfall of current month> the average(More)
