Mitochondrial division inhibitor 1 (Mdivi-1) is the most effective pharmacological inhibitor of mitochondrial fission. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a common and serious trauma, which lacks efficient treatment. This study aimed to detect the role of Mdivi-1 in neuronal injury and its underlying mechanism after acute SCI (ASCI) in rats. Western blot analysis(More)
Autophagy plays an essential role in neurodevelopment, axonal guidance, neuropathic pain remission, and neuronal survival. Inhibiting the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway can induce the occurrence of autophagy. In this study, we initially detected the effect of probucol on autophagy after spinal cord injury (SCI) by intraperitoneally(More)
Zinc concentrations in the dorsal horn of spinal cord are important for wound healing, neurological function, and reproduction. However, the response of the spinal cord to alterations in dietary zinc is unknown in rats after spinal cord injury (SCI). The current study explored cellular zinc levels and zinc transporter 1 (ZnT1) expression in the dorsal horn(More)
Spinal cord repair is a challenging task that has puzzled clinical specialists and scientists for a long time. Zinc plays an important role in regulating the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in nervous system, which can improve the pathological state of neurons and promote regeneration of injured neurons, reduce neuronal apoptosis. Our(More)
—Most of signals in engineering are nonstationary and time-varying. The Fourier transform as a traditional approach can only provide the feature information in frequency domain. The time-frequency techniques may give a comprehensive description of signals in time-frequency planes. Based on some typical nonstationary signals, five time-frequency analysis(More)
Zinc plays an important role in regulating the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its receptor in nervous system, but the correlation among Zn(2+), zinc transporter, and BDNF in spinal cord injuries (SCI) is not fully understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of Zn(2+), zinc transporter 1 (ZnT-1), and(More)
Neural stem cells (NSCs) are deemed to be a potential cell therapy for brain and spinal cord reconstruction and regeneration following injury. In this study, we investigated the role of nanofibrous scaffolds on NSCs-derived neurons in the formation of neural networks. Miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs) were recorded using the whole-cell(More)
Simvastatin, an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase, is invariably used to treat cardiovascular diseases. Simvastatin has been recently demonstrated to have a neuroprotective effect in nervous system diseases. The present study aimed to further verify the neuroprotection and molecular mechanism of simvastatin on rats after spinal(More)
Collapsin response mediator protein 2 (CRMP2) is a brain-specific multifunctional adaptor protein involved in neuronal polarity and axonal guidance. Our previous results showed CRMP2 may be involved in the hypoxic preconditioning and ischemic injury, but the mechanism was not clear. This study explored whether CRMP2 was involved in NMDA-induced neural(More)
