The Drosophila adult posterior midgut has been identified as a powerful system in which to study mechanisms that control intestinal maintenance, in normal conditions as well as during injury or infection. Early work on this system has established a model of tissue turnover based on the asymmetric division of intestinal stem cells. From the quantitative(More)
Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II is a major cause of drug-resistant epilepsy. In order to gain insight into the possible correlations between FCD II pathological pattern and different clinical characteristics (including clinical information, imaging characteristics and surgical outcomes), different clinicopathological characteristics in two types of(More)
Jujuboside B has been reported to have protective effect on many cardiovascular diseases. However, the effects of Jujuboside B on vascular tension and endothelial function are unknown. The present study investigated the effects of Jujuboside B on reducing vascular tension, protecting endothelial function and the potential mechanisms. The tension of isolated(More)
Aluminum (Al) exposure inhibits bone formation. Osteoblastic proliferation promotes bone formation. Therefore, we inferred that Al may inhibit bone formation by the inhibition of osteoblastic proliferation. However, the effects and molecular mechanisms of Al on osteoblastic proliferation are still under investigation. Osteoblastic proliferation can be(More)
Choroid plexus tumors are rarely accompanied by other component. Here we report this rare case of a mixed choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC) and sarcoma. The patient was a 61-year-old woman with a well-defined, heterogeneous , peripherally enhancing, 4 × 4 × 3 cm lateral ventricle mass lesion. Histologically, the lesion displayed characteristics of mixed(More)
Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) II and I are major causes for drug-resistant epilepsy. In order to gain insight into the possible correlations between FCD II and FCD I, different clinical characteristics and immunohistochemical expression characteristics in FCD I and II were analyzed. The median age of onset and duration of epilepsy in FCD I and FCD II(More)
