OBJECTIVE To establish nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in young rats, and to investigate the metabolic characteristics of these rats. METHODS Fifteen male and fifteen female SD rats of 3 weeks old were randomly divided into three groups, normal group (N), 20% high fat group (HF1) and 30% high fat group (HF2). All the rats were fed under Specific(More)
k-Plane clustering (kPC) and k-proximal plane clustering (kPPC) cluster data points to the center plane, instead of clustering data points to cluster center in k-means. However, the cluster center plane constructed by kPC and kPPC is infinitely extending, which will affect the clustering performance. In this paper, we propose a local k-proximal plane(More)
The fatty acid and amino acid compositions of different grades of steamed Chinese mitten crab were analyzed. In total, 37 types of fatty acid were identified and quantified, with monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) constituting approximately 70 % of all fatty acids. Oleic acid, palmitic acid, and linoleic acid were dominant(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore whether a tissue-engineered construct composed of autogenous endothelial cells, osteoblasts and a new bioresorbable nano-hydroxyapatite/recombinant human-like collagen/polylactic acid (nHA/RHLC/PLA) would enhance bone regeneration and repair femoral head defects in canine models. METHODS The bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) were(More)
A possible correlation between liver cancer pain and the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression levels was examined. From January, 2015 to January, 2016, 30 patients suffering from liver cancer with pain, 30 patients with liver cancer without pain and 30 hepatitis patients with pain were enrolled in the(More)
A group of growth factors have been shown to play important roles in amelioration of the malfunction of the neurodegenerative diseases. However, the proteins or polypeptides passing across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to access the brain parenchyma are relatively few so that it hinders the therapies in clinic. Here a genetically reconstructed fusion(More)
Edible viscera (EV) and remainder tissues (RTs) are two by-products of Chinese mitten crab. The objective of this study was to assess the nutrient and non-volatile taste compound contents of EV and RTs. EV and RTs were high in fat (25.35 %) and protein (16.46 %), respectively. Both by-products were good sources of Zn, Fe, and Cu. Both samples contained(More)
BACKGROUND Vulnerable plaques play an important role in the onset of sudden cardiac events and strokes. How to stabilize vulnerable plaques is still a challenge to medical science. Alprostadil is a biologically active substance with strong activity on vessel. Our study assessed the stabilizing effects of an alprostadil liposome microsphere preparation(More)
AIM To construct the expression vectors of procalcitonin (PCT), prepare polyclonal antibodies (pAbs) and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against PCT and identify their specific biological activity. METHODS The recombinant expression plasmids of pGEX-4T-1-PCT and PET-32a-PCT were constructed using thyroid carcinoma cell line (TT cell) cDNA as template. The(More)
