INTRODUCTION A body of studies suggests the role of osteopontin (OPN) in onset and development of osteoarthritis (OA), however, the association between OPN polymorphisms and OA susceptibility as well as its clinical features has not been reported. METHODS A total of 750 patients with primary knee OA and 794 healthy volunteer were enrolled as controls.(More)
Metformin, a wildly used drug for type 2 diabetes, has recently been proven to protect a variety of cells from stress including stroke. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter that contributes to excitatory neuronal damage involved in stroke and neurodegenerative disorders. In this study, we demonstrated that pretreatment of rat cerebellar granule(More)
The availability of large amounts of protein-protein interaction (PPI) data makes it feasible to use computational approaches to predict protein functions. The base of existing computational approaches is to exploit the known function information of annotated proteins in the PPI data to predict functions of un-annotated proteins. However, these approaches(More)
Cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels (CNGs) are distributed most widely in the neuronal cell. Great progress has been made in molecular mechanisms of CNG channel gating in the recent years. Results of many experiments have indicated that the stoichiometry and assembly of CNG channels affect their property and gating. Experiments of CNG mutants and analyses(More)
