Ghrelin, an orexigenic hormone, is mainly produced by the stomach and released into the circulation. Ghrelin receptors (growth hormone secretagogue receptors) are expressed throughout the brain, including the hippocampus. The activation of ghrelin receptors facilitates high-frequency stimulation (HFS)-induced long-term potentiation (LTP) in vitro, and also(More)
To analyze the mechanisms underlying the impact of recombinant Autographa californica multicapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV)-mediated BmK IT expression on the function of baculovirus GP64 envelope fusion protein and progeny virus production. Viral propagation assay indicated that overexpression GP64 could promote replication of AcMNPV. AcMNPV-mediated(More)
The behavioral strategy option of project-based organizations directly influences the quality of construction project. Based on the behavioral game model for the owner, supervision unit and contractor, and analysis of mixed strategy Nash equilibrium for the model, under the analysis framework that project-based organizations' bounded rationality, this paper(More)
The baculovirus Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) possesses p35 gene, which encodes antiapoptosis protein P35 (or Ac-P35). A previous study showed that deleting p35 promoted premature cytolysis and caused the reduction of virus yield. In this report, we examined the role of P35 in regulating the expression of Ac-IAPs (inhibitor(More)
Engineered nanomaterials are known to exhibit diverse and sometimes unexpected biological effects. Fullerene nanoparticles have been reported to specifically bind to and elicit persistent activation of hippocampal Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII), a multimeric intracellular serine/threonine kinase central to Ca(2+) signal transduction(More)
Eukaryotic cells may divide via the critical cellular process of cell division/mitosis, resulting in two daughter cells with the same genetic information. A large number of dedicated proteins are involved in this process and spatiotemporally assembled into three distinct super-complex structures/organelles, including the centrosome/spindle pole body,(More)
It is well known that autophagy, a cellular stress response to degrade damaged components, can be activated by many nanoparticles. We have demonstrated that CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs), which are widely applied in vitro for diagnostics and cellular imaging, can impair synaptic transmission and synaptic plasticity in the dentate gyrus (DG) area, but the(More)
