Tree structures are used extensively in domains such as computational biology, pattern recognition, XML databases, computer networks , and so on. One important problem in mining databases of trees is to find frequently occurring subtrees. However, because of the combina-torial explosion, the number of frequent subtrees usually grows exponentially with the(More)

Effect of hyperthermic preconditioning on disruption of blood-brain barrier induced by hypoxic-ischemic insult was examined. Seven-day-old Wistar rats were separated into (1) pre-heated (15 min of hyperthermia at 41.5-42.0 degrees C) or (2) non-heated group (33 degrees C). Twenty-four hours after conditioning, all rats were subjected to 2 h hypoxia-ischemia(More)
BACKGROUND Recent research has shown a correlation between immune microenvironment and lymphoma biology. This study aims to investigate the prognostic significance of the immunologically relevant lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in the rituximab era. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We analyzed retrospective data(More)
We examined four different learning and memory tasks in rats which had been subjected to left carotid artery ligation followed by 2 h hypoxia (8% oxygen) when they were 7 days old. The examination began on the 4th week after insult and continued to 18 weeks post-insult. Compared with the control group, the hypoxic-ischemic group showed significant learning(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is characterized by a progressive degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. Oxidative stress and neural degeneration are suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of PD. Previous studies have revealed that Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) can reduce inflammation and oxidation, making it a potential therapeutic agent(More)
P53 codon 72 Arg/Pro is a C/G variation upstream of the p53 gene on human chromosome 17p13. Many case–control studies have investigated the association between p53 codon 72 Arg/Pro polymorphism and glioma risk but provided inconsistent findings. To better understand the pathogenesis of glioma, we performed the current meta-analysis by pooling data from all(More)
AIM beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) agonists are among the most potent factors regulating cardiac electrophysiological properties. Connexin 43 (Cx43), the predominant gap-junction protein in the heart, has an indispensable role in modulating cardiac electric activities by affecting gap-junction function. The present study investigates the effects of(More)
Growing evidences have revealed that the proforms of several neurotrophins including nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT3), by binding to p75 neurotrophin receptor and sortilin, could induce neuronal apoptosis and are implicated in the pathogenesis of various neurodegenerative diseases. The glial cell(More)
Ischemic/hypoxic brain damage induced in 7-day-old rats was significantly attenuated in a dose-dependent manner by intracerebral injection of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF; 2 or 4 microg) within 30 min after the insult. Whereas the great majority of the vehicle-treated animals showed massive infarction involving more than 75% of the(More)
