and Applied Analysis 3 For the rest of the paper we need the following assumption: C3 0 < ∑m−2 i 1 αiφ1 ηi < 1. Lemma 2.2 see 1 . Assuming that (C2) and (C3) hold. Let y ∈ C ρ 0 , σ 1 . Then boundary value problem xΔ∇ t a t xΔ t b t x t y t 0, t ∈ 0, 1 T , x ( ρ 0 ) 0, x σ 1 m−2 ∑ i 1 αix ( ηi ) 2.3 is equivalent to integral equation
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is an antioxidant that also stimulates nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis and secretion. In an earlier pilot study in our laboratory, Schwann cell growth was accelerated, and NGF mRNA expression and NGF secretion were promoted. The present study was designed to explore the possible nerve-inducing effect of PQQ on a nerve tube(More)
Previous studies showed that sodium ferulate, the effective component of Chinese herb, can inhibit platelet aggregation and decrease serum lipid. However, it is still unknown if sodium ferulate could prevent atherosclerogenesis. The experiments were designed to study its effects and mechanisms on atherosclerogenesis. Blood samples and thoracic aortas(More)
We established new methods for cloning cDNA ends that start with reverse transcription (RT) and soon proceed with the synthesis of the second cDNA strand, avoiding manipulations of fragile RNA. Our 3'-end cloning method does not involve poly-dT primers and polymerase chain reactions (PCR), is low in efficiency but high in fidelity and can clone those RNAs(More)
Insulin and adrenergic stimulation are two divergent regulatory systems that may interact under certain pathophysiological circumstances. Here, we characterized a complex consisting of insulin receptor (IR) and b2adrenergic receptor (b2AR) in the heart. The IR/b2AR complex undergoes dynamic dissociation under diverse conditions such as Langendorff(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and obesity independently increase the risk of heart failure by incompletely understood mechanisms. We propose that hyperinsulinemia might promote adverse consequences in the hearts of subjects with type-2 DM and obesity. METHODS High-fat diet feeding was used to induce obesity and DM in wild-type mice or mice(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of cell proliferation, differentiation and function. Mechanical strain is an essential factor for osteoblast proliferation and differentiation. A previous study revealed that a physiological mechanical tensile strain of 2500 microstrain (με) at 0.5 Hz applied once a day for 1 h over 3 consecutive days promoted(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA) is an important regulator of cell differentiation and function. Mechanical strain is important in the growth and differentiation of osteoblasts. Therefore, mechanresponsive miRNA may be important in the response of osteoblasts to mechanical strain. The purpose of the present study was to select and identify the mechanoresponsive miRNAs of(More)
Background: Reference values are very important in clinical management of diseased animal. The mutton quality characteristics not only could reflect the breed of sheep, but also allow for a selection of improved meat quality in the breed analyzed with more attractive sensory attributes. The aim of this study was to establish reference values for commonly(More)
Insulin and adrenergic stimulation are two divergent regulatory systems that may interact under certain pathophysiological circumstances. Here, we characterized a complex consisting of insulin receptor (IR) and β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR) in the heart. The IR/β2AR complex undergoes dynamic dissociation under diverse conditions such as Langendorff(More)
