Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder characterized by impairments in social and communication abilities, as well as by restricted and repetitive behaviors. The BTBR T + Itpr3 tf (BTBR) mice have emerged as a well characterized and widely used mouse model of a range of ASD-like phenotype, showing deficiencies in social behaviors and(More)
Pulmonary fibroblasts have key roles in the formation and maintenance of lung structure and function, and are involved in tissue repair and remodeling. Transforming growth factor‑β1 (TGF‑β1) induces differentiation of fibroblasts into myofibroblasts, the key effector cells in fibrotic states, which are characterized by the expression of α‑smooth muscle(More)
Osteoporosis (OP) is considered a complex disease with a strong genetic impact, mainly affecting post-menopausal women and is also a common cause of fracture. Elucidating the molecular mechanisms that regulate the osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) is crucial to developing treatment strategies to combat OP. In(More)
Autism is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder with a large population prevalence, characterized by abnormal reciprocal social interactions, communication deficits, and repetitive behaviors with restricted interests. The BTBR T(+)Itpr3(tf) (BTBR) mice have emerged as strong candidates to serve as models of a range of autism-relevant behaviors. Increasing(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Varicocele (VC) is considered by the World Health Organization as the main cause of male infertility. Studies have shown that VC can affect spermatogenesis and then result in male infertility. But the exact mechanism by which VC affects spermatogenesis is still unclear. Stem cell factor (SCF) and c-KIT receptor are crucial molecules(More)
PURPOSE Varicocele is the most common risk factor for male infertility, however, not all males with varicocele experience infertility. In fact, most patients with varicocele have normal spermatogenesis. The molecular mechanism of varicocele-associated infertility is yet to be completely understood. The aim of this study is to assess the association of a(More)
