Oxidative stress-induced neuronal death has an important role in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. The effects and mechanisms of action of the total flavonoids (TFs) from Rosa laevigata Michx fruit against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative injury in PC12 cells were investigated in this study. The results demonstrated that the TFs(More)
The adaptations of root morphology, physiology, and biochemistry to phosphorus supply have been characterized intensively. However, characterizing these adaptations at molecular level is largely neglected under field conditions. Here, two consecutive field experiments were carried out to investigate the agronomic traits and root traits of wheat (Triticum(More)
AIM Lactates accumulate in ischemic brains. G protein-coupled receptor 81 (GPR81) is an endogenous receptor for lactate. We aimed to explore whether lactate is involved in ischemic injury via activating GPR81. METHODS N2A cells were transfected with GFP-GPR81 plasmids 24 h previously, and then treated with GPR81 antagonist 3-hydroxy-butyrate (3-OBA) alone(More)
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) is one of the most important neuroactive steroids. The present study examined the effect of DHEAS on spontaneous and evoked glutamate release in the pyramidal cells of layers V and VI of the rat prelimbic cortex by using whole-cell patch-clamp recordings in slices and further investigated its mechanism. The results(More)
This paper describes the SemEval 2016 shared task on Aspect Based Sentiment Analysis (ABSA), a continuation of the respective tasks of 2014 and 2015. In its third year, the task provided 19 training and 20 testing datasets for 8 languages and 7 domains, as well as a common evaluation procedure. From these datasets, 25 were for sentence-level and 14 for(More)
The neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) is predominantly expressed in nervous tissues and subject to complex transcriptional controls. To determine the effect of acetylation on nNOS expression, human neuroblastoma SK-N-SH cells were treated with trichostatin A (TSA), a histone deacetylase inhibitor. As a consequence, total and exon 1f-specific nNOS mRNA,(More)
Noun phrases (NP) in a product review are always considered as the product attribute candidates in previous work. However, this method limits the recall of the product attribute extraction. We therefore propose a novel approach by generalizing syntactic structures of the product attributes with two strategies: intuitive heuristics and syntactic structure(More)
Sigma-1 receptors are highly expressed in the brain. The downstream signaling mechanisms associated with the sigma-1 receptor activation have been shown to involve the activation of protein kinase C (PKC), the control of Ca(2) homoeostasis and the regulation of voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels. But few studies examined the regulatory effect of sigma-1(More)
This paper focuses on the task of colloca-tion polarity disambiguation. The collocation refers to a binary tuple of a polarity word and a target (such as ⟨long, battery life⟩ or ⟨long, startup⟩), in which the sentiment orientation of the polarity word (" long ") changes along with different targets (" battery life " or " startup "). To disambiguate a(More)
