Human primary and clonal synovial cells were incubated with glutamate receptor agonists to assess their modulating influence on glutamate receptors N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) NR1 and NR2 and inflammatory cytokines to determine potential for paracrine or autocrine (neurocrine) upregulation of glutamate receptors, as has been shown for bone and chondrocytes.(More)
In the previous proteomic study of human placenta, transmembrane 7 superfamily member 1 (TM7SF1) was found enriched in lysosome compartments. TM7SF1 encodes a 399-amino acid protein with a calculated molecular mass of 45 kDa. Bioinformatic analysis of its amino acid sequence showed that it is a multipass transmembrane protein containing a potential(More)
The present study aimed to investigate the responses of broilers with different hatching weights (HW) to dietary methionine (Met). A total of 192 1-d-old Arbor Acres broiler chicks with different HW (heavy: 48·3 (sem 0·1) g and light: 41·7 (sem 0·1) g) were allocated to a 2 (HW) × 2 (Met) factorial arrangement with six replicates of eight chicks. Control(More)
Human Nanog1 is a 305-amino acid (aa) homeodomain-containing transcription factor critical for the pluripotency of embryonic stem (ES) and embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells. Somatic cancer cells predominantly express a retrogene homolog of Nanog1 called NanogP8, which is ~99% similar to Nanog at the aa level. Although the predicted M.W of Nanog1/NanogP8 is ∼35(More)
BACKGROUND Post-amputation pain (PAP) is highly prevalent after limb amputation, and stump neuromas play a key role in the generation of the pain. Presently, PAP refractory to medical management is frequently treated with minimally invasive procedures guided by ultrasound, such as alcohol neurolysis and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). OBJECTIVE To record(More)
Broilers with lower hatching weight (HW) present poorer performance than those with high HW, but there is limited research on the growth regulation of broilers with lower HW. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of dietary methionine (Met) levels on the growth performance and breast muscle yield of broilers with different HW and(More)
Gears are widely used in mechanical engineering. However, there are still several problems, such as too many features and too much running time in the simulation of gear machining based on generating method in 3D CAD software. To solve these problems, a new approach is presented to generate precise gear models in this paper. By cutting one single tooth(More)
The current mobile service in China displays a highly dynamic competition between two major operators, China Mobile and China Unicom. Their market share concerning the number of subscriber is influenced by the subscriber base, service quality, pricing policy, etc. Current researches and analyses are mostly direct comparisons of the relative advantage of the(More)
Respiratory activity is under circadian modulation and the physiological mechanisms may involve the pineal secretory product, melatonin, and the carotid chemoreceptor. We hypothesized that melatonin modulates the carotid chemoreceptor response to hypercapnic acidosis. To determine whether the effect of melatonin on the chemoreceptor response to hypercapnic(More)
