Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegen-erative disorder and the main cause of dementia. Panax notoginsenoside Rb1 (PNRb1), which is also known as
Nanofluids, i.e., well-dispersed (metallic) nanoparticles at low- volume fractions in liquids, may enhance the mixture's thermal conductivity, knf, over the base-fluid values. Thus, they are potentially useful for advanced cooling of micro-systems. Focusing mainly on dilute suspensions of well-dispersed spherical nanoparticles in water or ethylene glycol,… (More)
BACKGROUND Zuo-Jin-Wan (ZJW), a traditional Chinese medicine formula, has been identified to be effective against drug resistance in cancer. In the present study, we investigated the effect of ZJW on acquired oxaliplatin-resistant and the PI3K/Akt/NF-κB pathway in vitro. METHODS We tested the dose-response relationship of ZJW on reversing drug-resistance… (More)
Inhaled toxic aerosols of conventional cigarette smoke may impact not only the health of smokers, but also those exposed to second-stream smoke, especially children. Thus, less harmful cigarettes (LHCs), also called potential reduced exposure products (PREPs), or modified risk tobacco products (MRTP) have been designed by tobacco manufacturers to focus on… (More)
Phorbol myristate acetate (PMA), as a potent tumor promoter, may induce microglial senescence. The present study investigated the effect of PMA infection on microglial senescence. From 58 male Sprague‑Dawley rats, 10 were randomly selected and divided into a PMA injection group, containing five rats (0.5 µg/µl PMA) and a control group, containing five rats… (More)
In the title complex, [Cu(C(7)H(4)NO(4))(C(11)H(10)N(3)O(2))]·2H(2)O, the Cu(II) atom is in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The equatorial plane is formed by two N atoms and one O atom from 6-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)picolinate and by one N atom from pyridine-2,6-dicarboxyl-ate (pdc). Two pdc O atoms occupy the axial positions. Water mol-ecules are… (More)
In the title complex, [Mn(C(11)H(10)N(3)O(2))(2)]·3H(2)O, the Mn(II) atom is coordinated by four N atoms and two O atoms in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The mol-ecules are linked together via hydrogen bonds involving the water molecules. One of these is disordered equally over two positions.
In the title compound, [Ni(C(11)H(9)ClN(3)O(2))(C(7)H(3)NO(4))]·2H(2)O, the Ni(II) atom is coordinated by two N atoms and one O atom of 3-chloro-6-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)picolinate and by one N atom and two O atoms of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxyl-ate in a distorted octa-hedral coordination. In the crystal structure, mol-ecules are linked together by… (More)
