BACKGROUND The effect of chronic stress on cognitive functions has been one of the hot topics in neuroscience. But there has been much controversy over its mechanism. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of chronic multiple stress on spatial learning and memory as well as the expression of Fyn, BDNF and TrkB in the hippocampus of rats. (More)
Calcium is a second messenger which is required for regulation of many cellular processes. However, excessive elevation or prolonged activation of calcium signaling would lead to cell death. As such, selectively regulating calcium signaling could be an alternative approach for anti-cancer therapy. Recently, we have identified an effective analogue of(More)
The research on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been developing at an extraordinary pace in its two decades of existence, as judged by the exponential growth of novel structures and the constant expansion of its applicability and research scope. A major part of the research and its success are due to the vital role of the concept of mixed organic(More)

Celastrol, a triterpene extracted from the Chinese herb Tripterygium wilfordii, has been shown to have multiple bioactivities. Although among these activities, its anti-cancer effects have attracted the most attention, the effect of celastrol on gefitinib-resistant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells is not clearly known. Here, we examined the potency(More)
Tangeretin (TANG), present in peel of citrus fruits, has been shown to various medicinal properties such as chemopreventive and neuroprotective. However, the chemopreventive effect of TANG on glioblastoma cells has not been examined. The present study was designed to explore the anticancer potential of TANG in glioblastoma cells and to investigate the(More)
AIMS Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been developed to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with EGFR mutation, but TKI resistance is common. Almost half of the acquired resistance patients are due to additional T790M mutation on EGFR (EGFR(T790M)), thus overcoming TKI resistance is important. In(More)
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) dominates over 85% of all lung cancer cases. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activating mutation is a common situation in NSCLC. In the clinic, molecular-targeting with Gefitinib as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) for EGFR downstream signaling is initially effective. However, drug resistance frequently happens(More)
A new pillared-layer coordination polymer, [Co(3)(pybz)(2)(pico)(2)](n) (1; pybz = 4-(pyridin-4-yl)benzoate, pico = 3-hydroxypicolinate), contains rare 2D [Co(3)(pico)(2)](n)(2n+) layers formed by linear cobalt(II) trimers through the unusual mu(4)-kappaN,O:kappaO'-mu(2):kappaO''-mu(2) bridging mode of pico ligands, which are further cross-pillared by(More)
A new 2D coordination polymer Co3(OH)2(pa)2(ina)2 (1, pa = 3-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl) propanoic carboxylate, ina = isonicotinate) contained uncommon, linear Co(ii) trimers of mixed Td-Oh-Td geometries, exhibits spin canting below 20 K. Such magnetic behavior mainly arises from the Dzyaloshinski-Moriya interaction from the anisotropic, mixed geometries(More)
