Abstract The blood‐brain barrier (BBB) is one of the most essential protection mechanisms in the central nervous system (CNS). It selectively allows individual molecules such as small lipid‐soluble… Expand
Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase-1b Deficiency Aggravates Pressure Overload–Induced Cardiac Hypertrophy Caused by Lipotoxicity
Background— Carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 (CPT1) is a rate-limiting step of mitochondrial &bgr;-oxidation by controlling the mitochondrial uptake of long-chain acyl-CoAs. The muscle isoform,… Expand
Late Quaternary climatic and tectonic mechanisms driving river terrace development in an area of mountain uplift: A case study in the Langshan area, Inner Mongolia, northern China
Abstract The Langshan Range is located in the western Yin Mountain orogenic belts and the western Hetao fault-depression zone in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is on the northwestern… Expand
Recent development of carbon quantum dots regarding their optical properties, photoluminescence mechanism, and core structure.
Carbon quantum dots (CDs) are a relatively new class of carbon nanomaterials which have been studied very much in the last fifteen years to improve their already favorable properties. The optical… Expand

Breast cancer (BC) is the most common malignancy in women worldwide, and one of the deadliest after lung cancer. Currently, standard methods for cancer therapy including BC are surgery followed by… Expand
Conditional PPARγ knockout from cardiomyocytes of adult mice impairs myocardial fatty acid utilization and cardiac function.
While the roles of PPARα and PPARδ (β) in transcriptional regulation of myocardial lipid metabolisms are well established, an essential role of PPARγ in regulating lipid metabolisms in the adult… Expand
Triple conjugated carbon dots as a nano-drug delivery model for glioblastoma brain tumors.
Most of the dual nano drug delivery systems fail to enter malignant brain tumors due to a lack of proper targeting systems and the size increase of the nanoparticles after drug conjugation.… Expand
