Current models suggest that TRAPP tethering complexes exist in two forms. Whereas the seven-subunit TRAPPI complex mediates ER-to-Golgi transport, TRAPPII contains three additional subunits (Trs65, Trs120 and Trs130) and is required for distinct tethering events at Golgi membranes. It is not clear how TRAPPII assembly is regulated. Here, we show that Tca17(More)
Inhibition of return (IOR) as an indicator of attentional control is characterized by an eccentricity effect, that is, the more peripheral visual field shows a stronger IOR magnitude relative to the perifoveal visual field. However, it could be argued that this eccentricity effect may not be an attention effect, but due to cortical magnification. To test(More)
Autophagy is a process of packaging mis-folded proteins and damaged organelles in the autophagosomes and degrading them through fusion with lysosomes. During the early development of cancer, autophagy can serve as a tumor suppression mechanism, since it clears abnormal proteins and limits genome damage. Autophagy becomes a mechanism of tumor promotion at(More)
Heat stress is known to alter follicular dynamics and granulosa cell function and may contribute to the diminished reproductive efficiency commonly observed in mammals during the summer. Although several investigators have studied heat-induced ovarian injury, few reports have focused on the effects of chronic heat stress on ovarian function and the(More)
Aerodigestive cancers are on an increasing level in both occurrence and mortality. A major cause in many of these cancers is disruption of the inflammatory pathway, leading to increased cell proliferation and epigenetic silencing of normal regulatory genes. Here, we review the research on several natural products: silibinin, silymarin, quercetin, neem and(More)

The volume of cochlear nucleus and nucleolus, neural populations were determined in rats of three groups aged (1, 2-3, 22-28 months). The study data indicated that there is no difference between the volume of cochlear nucleus in the aged and adult animals (P > 0.05). Compared with the other two groups, the aged animals show a reduction of volume of(More)
Three-dimensional structures of human vestibular sensory epithelia were studied under scanning electron microscope. The saccular macula showed an "L" pattern and increased in thickness near the striola. The utricular macula appeared like an open shell. Flask and test-tube shaped hair cells were identified as type-I and type-II sensory cells respectively.(More)
We used three methods to reconstruct a same bony and membranous labyrinth by an image processing work station (IPWS). Three dimensional (3-D) models of the bony and membranous labyrinth were thus obtained. Different parts of the labyrinth were measured and the spatial relationship between the bony and membranous labyrinth was observed. Many 3-D parameters(More)
