Hypoxic and low-glucose stressors contribute to neuronal death in many brain diseases. Astrocytes are anatomically well-positioned to shield neurons from hypoxic injury. During hypoxia/ischemia, lactate released from astrocytes is taken up by neurons and stored for energy. This process is mediated by monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) in the central(More)
Tanshinones are abietane-type norditerpenoid quinone natural products found in a well-known traditional Chinese medicinal herb, Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge. The copalyl diphosphate synthase of S. miltiorrhiza (SmCPS) is the key enzyme in the first step for transformation of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP) into miltiradiene, which has recently been(More)
Tanshinones are a group of bioactive abietane-type norditerpenoid quinone compounds in Salvia miltiorrhiza. Copalyldiphosphate synthase of S. miltiorrhiza (SmCPS) is the first key enzyme in tanshinone biosynthesis from the universal diterpene precursor geranylgeranyl diphosphate. Hairy roots of S. miltiorrhiza were transformed with Agrobacterium rhizogenes(More)
Interactions between ionic liquid surfactant [C(12)mim]Br and DNA in dilute brine were investigated in terms of various experimental methods and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. It was shown that the aggregation of [C(12)mim]Br on DNA chains is motivated not only by electrostatic attractions between DNA phosphate groups and [C(12)mim]Br headgroups but(More)
The application of elicitors, which is currently the focus of research, has been considered as one of the most effective methods to improve the synthesis of secondary metabolites in medicinal plants. Biotic and abiotic elicitors can regulate the secondary metabolic pathways of effective ingredients in Salvia miltiorrhiza. This paper has introduced the(More)
This paper deals with the video surveillance problem in static camera. The aim is to design a moving object detection system based on advanced CPU DM6437. After capturing the pictures according to the timing, the background model is established without the objects and the background information is real-time updated due to the changes of the environment.(More)
A Schiff base-type fluorescence probe was prepared for the detection of copper (II) in foodstuffs. The probe is N,N'-bis(pyridoxal phosphate)-o-phenylenediamine (BPPP). It was synthesized by utilizing the Schiff base condensation reaction of pyridoxal 5-phosphate with 1,2-phenylenediamine. BPPP has the properties of high fluorescence stability, good water(More)
The paper discusses adsorption and desorption energy barriers for macroscopic interfaces of surfactant solutions. Literature data suggest that adsorption and desorption are not always fully diffusion controlled. Apart from electrostatic barriers that lead to strong deviations, other types of barriers are less easy to identify, because smaller deviations(More)
Using a biomolecule of l-cystine as the sulfur source and coordinating agent, polyoxoniobate-CdS nanohybrids were successfully synthesized under mild hydrothermal conditions. The adsorption of ammonium group (-NH2) in l-cystine molecular structure on the surface of CdS renders the amine-anchored CdS positively charged, which readily combines with the(More)
The micellization of cationic gemini surfactant trimethylene-1,3-bis (dodecyldimethylammonium bromide) (12-3-12·2Br) was investigated and critical micelle concentrations (CMC) and thermodynamic parameters were evaluated as functions of ionic strength and temperature. The micellization of 12-3-12·2Br is entropically driven and thermodynamically favored.(More)
