AIM To investigate the effects of four different ingredients of zedoary (Curcuma aromatica oil, Curcumol, beta-elemence, and Curcumin) on the gene expressions of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs), and to explore the molecular mechanism of zedoary against hepatic fibrosis at gene network level. METHODS We detected the mRNA sequences of 50 liver(More)
AIM To investigate the molecular mechanisms of saponins from the rhizome of Anemarrhena asphodeloides Bunge. METHODS Oligonucleotide microarrays consisting of 87 probes representing 87 human cardiovascular disease-related genes were constructed. Effects of saponins on gene expression in human umbilical vein endothelial cells were analyzed by comparing(More)
In underwater applications of contactless power transmission (CLPT) systems, high pressure and noncoaxial operations will change the parameters of electromagnetic (EM) couplers. As a result, the system will divert from its optimum performance. Using a reluctance modeling method, we investigated the gap effects on the EM coupler in deep-sea environment.(More)
