Experimental and occupational exposure to methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) has been reported to induce neurotoxicological and neurobehavioral effects, such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and disorientation, etc. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in MTBE-induced neurotoxicity are still not well understood. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
Due to their significant value in both economy and ecology, Daphnia had long been employed to investigate in vivo response of cholinesterase (ChE) in anticholinesterase exposures, whereas the type constitution and property of the enzyme remained unclear. A type of ChE was purified from Daphnia magna using a three-step procedure, i.e., Triton X-100(More)
We examined sexual differences in scaling relationships among twig components in dioecious species Populus cathayana Rehd, and explored the functional adaptation of twigs in female plants. Since the evolution of reproductive requirements for disseminating pollen or producing seeds/fruits has led to sexual dimorphisms of twigs in dioecious species, different(More)
Our previous studies showed chronic exposure to manganese chloride (Mn) causes locomotor impairment and lesion of dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra (SN). But effects of acute Mn exposure on locomotor ability, SN dopaminergic and GABAergic neurons were not clear. In the current study, Mn was injected into the striatum of GAD(67)-GFP mice. Twenty-four(More)
