Experiments were performed on freshly isolated dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons of rat. GABA(A)-activated currents were recorded using the whole-cell patch clamp technique. The majority of the neurons (48/52, 90.5%) were sensitive to GABA (10( 6)~10( 3) mol/L). Application of oxytocin (OT) induced outward membrane responses in 51.3% (20/39) of the(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The monitoring of autofluorescence in skin tissue samples can have diagnostic and therapy significance. In this study, we are the first to describe autofluorescence of eccrine sweat glands, which is important and helpful for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases that involve the eccrine sweat glands. METHODS Eccrine sweat gland(More)
The experiments were carried out on rats, anesthetized with urethan and paralyed with tubocuraine. Stainless steel needles were inserted into bilateral "Zusanli" points. The unit discharges of RVM neurons were recorded extracellalarly by microelectrode. The searching of nociceptive neurons and processing of data were operated automatically by a real time(More)
High mobility group box B1 (HMGB1)-receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) axis has been previously known to be involved in carcinogenesis and development of multiple malignancies. Some studies have confirmed that Ethyl pyruvate (EP), a potent inhibitor of HMGB1, exerts the therapeutic effects on metastatic live tumor from gastric cancer.(More)

BACKGROUND Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease which is involved in T- and B-lymphocyte-mediated autoimmunity. Apoptosis contributes to the maintenance of lymphocytes homeostasis and the deletion of autoreactive cells in SLE. Although there is evidence that cellular FLICE-inhibitory protein (c-FLIP), an antiapoptosis protein, is(More)
OBJECTIVE To study age-related metabolic changes in different brain regions. METHODS Point-resolved spectroscopy (repetition time/echo time = 2000 ms/30 ms) was performed in the left and right hippocampus, the left thalamus and the left centrum semiovale of 80 healthy subjects (37 females and 43 males aged 7-64 years). Analysis of covariance and linear(More)
In this study, microcomputer image processing and pattern recognition technology, and the knowledge of morphology and optical characteristics of Cryptococcus neoformans were used for identification of Cryptococcus neoformans. Four groups of mice were lethally infected with standard strain, Wuhan strain, American B-2643 strain and Var. Shanghainesis of the(More)
