We introduce the use of Ingenuity Pathway Analysis to analyzing global metabonomics in order to characterize phenotypically biochemical perturbations and the potential mechanisms of the gentamicin-induced toxicity in multiple organs. A single dose of gentamicin was administered to Sprague Dawley rats (200 mg/kg, n = 6) and urine samples were collected at(More)
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized societies. The lack of metabolite biomarkers has impeded the clinical diagnosis of atherosclerosis so far. In this study, stable atherosclerosis patients (n=16) and age- and sex-matched non-atherosclerosis healthy subjects (n=28) were recruited from(More)
Soil salinity can be a limiting factor for productivity in agriculture and forestry. In order to fully utilize saline lands productively in plantation forestry for pulp production, the genetic modification of tree species for salt-tolerance may be required. The AhDREB1 gene, a DREB-like transcription factor gene, was transferred into Populus tomentosa by(More)
Acupuncture has a history of over 3000 years and is a traditional Chinese medical therapy that uses hair-thin metal needles to puncture the skin at specific points on the body to promote wellbeing, while its molecular mechanism and ideal biological pathways are still not clear. High-throughput metabolomics is the global assessment of endogenous metabolites(More)
Metabolomics can capture global changes and the overall physiological status in biochemical networks and pathways in order to elucidate sites of perturbations. High-throughput metabolomics and acupuncturology have similar characteristics such as entirety, comprehensiveness and dynamic changes, and can identify potential candidates for acupuncture effects(More)
UNLABELLED Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr and Maxim) Harms (AS), a member of Araliaceae family, is a typical folk medicinal herb, which is widely distributed in the Northeastern part of China. Due to lack of this resource caused by the extensive use of its root, this work studied the chemical constituents of leaves of this plant with the purpose of looking(More)
Improving saline resistance may be useful for reducing environmental susceptibility and improving yields in poplar plantations. However, the instability of genetically engineered traits and gene transfer reduce their usefulness and commercial value. To investigate whether the foreign gene is still present in the genome of receptor plants after seven years(More)
Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Harms, a traditional Chinese medicine, has been widely used to improve the function of skeleton, heart, spleen and kidney. This fruit is rich in nutrients, but the chemical constituents of Acanthopanax senticosus fruit are still unclear. A rapid method based on ultra high performance liquid chromatography with(More)
A novel molecularly imprinted material based on silica microparticles was synthesized by surface polymerization with 3-chloro-1,2-propandiol (3-MCPD) as a template molecule. The molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was characterized by infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The adsorption of 3-MCPD by MIP was measured by gas chromatography(More)
Acanthopanax Senticosus Harms. has been used widely in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of chronic bronchitis, neurasthenia, hypertension and ischemic heart disease. However, the in vivo constituents of the stem of Acanthopanax Senticosus remain unknown. In this paper, ultra high performance liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization(More)
