OBJECT Variants of Kallikreins have been shown to be risk factors for intracranial aneurysm (IA) in a Finnish population. In the present study, the authors investigated the correlation between polymorphisms in the Kallikrein gene cluster and IAs in the Chinese population. METHODS The association of Kallikrein variants (rs1722561 and rs1701946) with(More)
Type III collagen plays an important role in activating platelets, forming thrombus, and maintaining the mechanical properties of arteries. This study aimed to test the hypothesis that genetic variants of COL3A1 (gene encoding type III collagen) contribute to recurrence and prognosis of stroke. We investigated the associations of three variants (rs2138533,(More)
Intracranial aneurysms (IAs) are acquired lesions in the brain and can pose potential risk of rupture leading to subarachnoid hemorrhage. Endoglin plays a pivotal role in the vascular development and disease. Variations of endoglin gene have been shown to be risk factors for IAs in different racial population. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
Aims. The present study tries to investigate the gene expression profile of bradycardia rabbits' hearts after SSYX (SSYX, a traditional Chinese medicine) treatment. Methods. Eighteen adult rabbits were randomly assigned in three groups: sham, model, and SSYX treatment groups. Heart rate was recorded in rabbits and total RNA was isolated from hearts. Gene(More)
