BACKGROUND Hypoxic conditions play roles in functioning of human tendon-derived stem cells (hTSCs). The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of various hypoxic conditions in self-renewal capacity and differentiation of TSCs. MATERIAL AND METHODS hTSCs was obtain from supraspinatus tendon donors. Colony formation and cell proliferation assay were(More)
Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) is a complicated process that involves both cellular apoptosis and senescence. Metformin has been reported to stimulate autophagy, whereas autophagy is shown to protect against apoptosis and senescence. Therefore, we hypothesize that metformin may have therapeutic effect on IDD through autophagy stimulation. The effect(More)
Previous studies have shown that inhibition of prolyl hydroxylase(PHD) stabilizes Hypoxia-inducible factor 1, alpha subunit(HIF-1α), increases tolerance to hypoxia, and improves the prognosis of many diseases. However, the role of PHD inhibitor (PHDI) in the recovery of spinal cord injury remains controversial. In this study, we investigated the protective(More)
A routing scheme of wireless sensor networks which is suitable for mine monitoring system is designed in this paper. Consideration of the topographic features of coal mine, two-level network is adopted. We design a semi-proactive routing protocol based on tree topology. Isolated nodes in the network send routing requests to neighbor nodes with least path(More)
