Prior evidence shows that acupuncture improves symptoms in both Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and animal models. We examined the effects of high-frequency (100 Hz) electroacupuncture (EA) on behavior in a rat PD model induced by medial forebrain bundle (MFB) transection. Neurotransmitters levels in the striatum were measured using in vivo microdialysis(More)
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disorder characterized by the proliferation of abnormal Langerhans cells. Previous studies mainly focused on children with LCH. However, there is limited information on the clinical and pathological aspects of LCH in adults. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the clinical and pathological aspects of LCH(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the strategies which reduce the amount of xenoantigen Galalpha1,3Gal. METHODS Human alpha-galactosidase gene and alpha1,2-fucosyltransferase gene were transferred into cultured porcine vascular endothelial cells PEDSV.15 and human alpha-galactosidase transgenic mice were produced. The Galalpha1,3Gal on the cell surface and(More)
As an inhibitor of the nuclear receptor subfamily 2, group C, member 2 signaling pathway, juxtaposed with another zinc finger gene 1 (JAZF1) has been shown to be involved in gluconeogenesis, lipid metabolism, and insulin sensitivity. However, its role in hepatic lipogenesis and chronic low-grade inflammation leading to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease(More)
Nesfatin-1, an 82-amino acid neuropeptide, has recently been characterized as a potent metabolic regulator. However, the metabolic mechanisms and signaling steps directly associated with the action of nesfatin-1 have not been well delineated. We established a loss-of-function model of hypothalamic nesfatin-1/NUCB2 signaling in rats through an(More)

In recent years, with the pace of daily life speeds up, people's life style varies greatly. As physical exercise decreases in people’s daily life, and the western diet structure prevails, a series of life style-related syndrome are caused like exercise deficiency, insulin resistance, overnutrition and grossness, which also becomes one of the major(More)
We recently isolated and identified Zizimin2 as a functional factor that is highly expressed in murine splenic germinal center B cell after immunization with T-cell-dependent antigen. Zizimin2 was revealed that it is a new family member of Dock (dedicator of cytokinesis), Dock11, which was the guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Cdc42, the Rho family of(More)
Intestinal glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a hormone that stimulates insulin secretion and acts as a neuropeptide to control glucose homeostasis, but little is known whether intestinal GLP-1 has any effect in the control of hepatic glucose production (HGP). Here we found that intraduodenal infusion of GLP-1 activated duodenal PKC-δ, lowered HGP and was(More)
UNLABELLED Backround N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is a reliable predictor in acute coronary artery disease (CAD). Little is known about patients with stable CAD, especially Chinese patients with CAD. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of NT-proBNP levels with the severity of CAD in patients with normal(More)
Genome wide association studies have suggested an association of Juxtaposed with another zinc finger gene 1(JAZF1) with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). As an inhibitor of the TAK1/TR4 signaling pathway, JAZF1 has been shown to be involved in gluconeogenesis, lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity. However, its role in insulin resistance and(More)
