Mutations of the B-type endothelin receptor (ETRB) gene have been found to cause defects in the development of enteric neurons, which resulted in aganglionic megacolon in rodents and humans. To determine the distribution of ETRB mRNA during neural development, mainly in the CNS, in situ hybridization was applied at various developmental stages of rat. ETRB(More)
The causes and pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are still not clearly understood. This study aims to prove the important role of rifaximin played in inflammatory reaction caused by abnormity of the intestinal mucosal immune system. Intestinal microflora can greatly promote and maintain the inflammatory reaction of IBD, therefore, antibiotics(More)
Decreased mitochondrial Complex I activities and a 4,977-bp deletion in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have been reported in patients with Parkinson's disease. Based on the assumption of possible links between this 4,977-bp deletion and the etiology of Parkinson's disease, we analyzed mtDNA of blood cells from 15 patients with young-onset Parkinson's disease(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) on the expression of CSE, NF-κB, and IL-8 mRNA in GES-1 cells with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and to explore its mechanism on gastric mucosa inflammation caused by H. pylori. METHODS GES-1 cells were cultured for 24 h and divided into a control group (neither H. pylori nor NaHS),(More)
Gene expression profiles of CD133-positive cells from patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were analyzed to identify key genes associated with cardiac therapy. Furthermore, the effect of exercise on gene expression was also investigated. Gene expression data set (accession number: GSE18608) was downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus, including(More)
