Our previous study has shown that cerebral ischemic preconditioning (CIP) can up-regulate the expression of glial glutamate transporter-1 (GLT-1) during the induction of brain ischemic tolerance in rats. The present study was undertaken to further explore the uptake activity of GLT-1 in the process by observing the changes in the concentration of(More)
In order to ensure normal body function, the human body is dependent on a tight control of its blood glucose levels. This is accomplished by a highly sophisticated network of various hormones and neuropeptides released mainly from the brain, pancreas, liver, intestine as well as adipose and muscle tissue. Within this network, the pancreas represents a key(More)
Chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (CIHH) has protective effects on heart and brain against ischemia injury through mobilizing endogenous adaptive mechanisms. However, whether CIHH prevents against cognitive impairment was not elucidated. The present study aimed to investigate the effect and mechanism of CIHH treatment on ischemia/reperfusion(More)
AIMS Radiation-induced heart damage (RIHD) is becoming an increasing concern for patients and clinicians due to the use of radiotherapy for thoracic tumor. Chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (CIHH) preconditioning has been documented to exert a cardioprotective effect. Here we hypothesized that CIHH was capable of attenuating functional and structural(More)
Aplastic anemia (AA) is a common malignant blood disease, and chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (CIHH) has a beneficial effect against different diseases. The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of CIHH against AA and underlying mechanisms. 5-Fluorouracil and busulfan treatment induced AA model in rats with reduction of(More)
KEY POINTS Central hypercapnic hypoventilation is highly prevalent in children suffering from congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS). Mutations of the gene for paired-like homeobox 2b (Phox2b) are aetiologically associated with CCHS and Phox2b is present in central components of respiratory chemoreflex, such as the nucleus tractus solitarius(More)
OBJECTIVE Providing adequate protection against cerebral ischemia remains an unrealized goal. The present study was aimed at testing whether chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia (CIHH) would have protective effects against cerebral ischemia and investigating the potential role of mitochondrial membrane ATP-sensitive potassium channel (mitoKATP) in this(More)
