Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is one of the most common sensory defects in humans. Hair cells are vulnerable to various ototoxic insults. Effective prevention of hair cell loss remains an unmet medical need. Apoptotic hair cell death, which involves active regulation of transcription, accounts for the majority of aminoglycoside-induced hair cells loss.(More)
Chemoresistance hinders the curative cancer chemotherapy. To define the role of the DNA methylation-regulated microRNA (miR) genes in the chemoresistance of bladder cancer, we performed both DNA methylomic and miRomic analyses of a multi-chemosensitive (5637) versus a multi-chemoresistant (H-bc) cell line and found that miR-193a-3p is(More)
OBJECTIVES To observe the expression of the dopamine transporter (DAT) in six cerebral regions of a methamphetamine (MA)-dependent rat, which were frontal cortex, nucleus accumbens septi, striatum, hippocampus, substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area. METHODS The rats were administrated intraperitoneally with 10 mg/kg/day of MA for 10 days(More)
The hippocampal neuronal network oscillation at γ frequency band (γ oscillation) is generated by the precise interaction between interneurons and principle cells. γ oscillation is associated with attention, learning and memory and is impaired in the diseased conditions such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and schizophrenia. Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor(More)
PURPOSE The aim was to assess atrial fibrillation (AF) and vulnerability in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome patients using two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE). METHODS All patients were examined via transthoracic echocardiography and 2D-STE in order to assess atrial function 7 days before and 10 days after RF catheter ablation.(More)
