The present study observed the antidepressant-like action of the medicinal plant Morinda officinalis in the differential reinforcement of low rate 72-s (DRL 72-s) schedule, a behavioral screen selective and sensitive to antidepressant drugs, and the forced swimming test, a well-known animal model of depression. In the DRL 72-s schedule in rats, the plant(More)
High concentration of corticosterone (Cort) 0.2 mM was incubated with PC12 cells to simulate the lesion state of brain neurons in depressive illness, it was found that the inulin-type oligosaccharides extracted from Morinda officinalis, inulin-type hexasaccharide (IHS) at the doses of 0.625, 1.25 microM or desipramine (DIM) 0.25, 1 microM protected the PC12(More)
Periodontal regeneration involves the restoration of at least three unique tissues: cementum, periodontal ligament tissue (PDL) and alveolar bone tissue. Here, we first isolated human PDL stem cells (PDLSCs) and jaw bone mesenchymal stem cells (JBMSCs). These cells were then induced to form cell sheets using an ascorbic acid-rich approach, and the cell(More)
BACKGROUND Xiaobuxin-Tang, a traditional Chinese herbal prescription recorded in a silk scroll unearthed from Mogao Caves of Dunhuang has been indicated that it can remit depressive disorder. The present study was designed to investigate its antidepressant effects in various animal depression models. METHODS Xiaobuxin-Tang was extracted by 70% alcohol,(More)
We have previously reported that Quercetin 3-O-b-D-apiofuranosyl-(1-->2)-[a-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->6)]-b-D-glucopyranoside (CTN-986), a potential antidepressant extracted from glandless cottonseeds, exerted a notable antidepressant-like effect in experimental animal models. Recent evidence suggested, at least in some animal models, that the behavioral(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the possible mechanism of aqueous extract of detoxified cottonseeds (CTN-W). METHOD AND RESULT CTN-W 0.01, 0.03, 0.10, 0.30 mg.mL-1 was incubated directly with the synaptic membrane extracted from the cerebral cortex in rats, and adenylyl cyclase (AC) activity was detected by using radio-immunoassay. RESULT Showed that CTN-W could(More)
