RATIONALE Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder with a characteristic of airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR). Ca(2+)-activated Cl(-) [Cl((Ca))] channels are inferred to be involved in AHR, yet their molecular nature and the cell type they act within to mediate this response remain unknown. OBJECTIVES Transmembrane protein 16A (TMEM16A) and TMEM16B are(More)
Three-dimensional graphene-supported TiO2 nanorod nanocomposites (3D GS-TNR) are prepared using graphene oxide hydrogel as a restricted-area nanoreactor in the hydrothermal process, in which well-distributed TiO2 nanorods with a width of approximately 5 nm and length of 30 nm are conformally embedded in the 3D interconnected graphene network. The 3D(More)
In the pathological mechanism of pulmonary arterial hypertension, the role of 31 apoptosis-resistant pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells (PVECs/ AR) has been 32 emphasized on the pulmonary vascular remodeling. In the present study, we investigated 33 whether PVECs/ AR can promote the proliferation and migration of pulmonary arterial 34 smooth muscle(More)
This study introduces an economical and environmentally friendly way of synthesizing LiFePO4/C to be used as cathode material in lithium ion batteries via two processes: (1) the synthesis of LiFePO4/C cathode material using a low cost divalent precursor ferrous phosphate, Fe3 (PO4)2·8H2O, as iron source in a polyol process and (2) the modification of the(More)
