Large-conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) (BK) channels can regulate cellular excitability in complex ways because they are able to respond independently to two distinct cellular signals, cytosolic Ca(2+) and membrane potential. In rat chromaffin cells (RCC), inactivating BK(i) and noninactivating (BK(s)) channels differentially contribute to RCC action(More)
To allocate cloud resources efficiently and obtain the maximum economic benefit are the major goals of the cloud resource providers and users. The objective of this paper is to present a novel cloud resource allocation algorithm named NECDA to overcome some of the shortcomings of the current mechanisms. A cloud resource allocation model of m*n type based on(More)
Retinal neovascularization (NV) occurs in various ocular disorders including proliferative diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity and secondary neovascular glaucoma, which often result in blindness. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an essential growth factor for angiogenesis, and is particularly regulated by hypoxia inducible(More)
In traditional Chinese medicine, the flower of Pueraria lobata (Puerariae Flos) has been used in therapy to counteract the problems associated with alcohol drinking and liver injury. In this study, we investigated the hepatoprotective effects and its mechanisms of tectoridin, an isoflavone glycoside from the flower of P. lobata (Willd.) Ohwi. Ethanol(More)
The effect of post-space treatment on the retention of fiber posts in different root regions was evaluated using two self-etching systems. Post spaces were prepared in extracted premolars and then the root canals were subjected to one of the following post-space treatments: (i) water irrigation (control); (ii) etching with 35% phosphoric acid for 30 s;(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of Sp110 gene SNP with tuberculosis occurrence of Chongqing Han people. METHODS Design Use the case-control study design, and collect risk factors of tuberculosis by questionnaires. Use multiple methods to detect rs1135791C/T, rs722555A/G, 5'-UTR rs11679983A/G, rs28930679C/T, rs9061A/G, rs1063154G/T, rs1047254A/G,(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the prevalent and most fatal brain tumor in adults. Invasion and a high rate of recurrence largely contribute to the poor prognosis of GBM. The current standard therapy for GBM includes surgery with maximum feasible resection, radiotherapy, and treatment with chemotherapeutic agent temozolomide. Annexin A5 reportedly(More)
The structural basis underlying the gating of large conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) (BK) channels remains elusive. We found that substitution of Leu-312 in the S6 transmembrane segment of mSlo1 BK channels with hydrophilic amino acids of smaller side-chain volume favored the open state. The sensitivities of channels to calcium and voltage were modified by(More)
Somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration were successfully established on Nitsch and Nitsch (NN) medium from immature zygotic embryos of six genotypes of grapevine (Vitis vinifera). The optimum hormone combinations were 1.0 mg dm−3 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) for callus induction and 1.0 mg dm−3 α-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) + 0.5 mg dm−3(More)
To explore the proteomic changes of placental trophoblastic cells in preeclampsia–eclampsia (PE), placental trophoblastic cells from normally pregnant women and women with hypertension during gestational period were prepared by laser capture microdissection (LCM), and proteins isolated from these cells were subjected to labeling and proteolysis with(More)
