Obesity is associated with increased infarct volumes and adverse outcomes following ischemic stroke. However, its effect on anesthetic postconditioning‑induced neuroprotection has not been investigated. The present study examined the effect of sevoflurane postconditioning on focal ischemic brain injury in diet‑induced obesity. Sprague‑Dawley rats were fed a(More)
Inherited functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in DNA repair genes may influence the capability of DNA repair and contribute to the risk of breast cancer. We therefore performed a case-control study to investigate the association of three in excision repair cross-complimentary group 1 (ERCC1) and three in xeroderma pigmentosum complementation(More)
Enantioselective esterification of ibuprofen has been successfully carried out in an organic solvent catalyzed by recombinant APE 1547 (a thermophilic esterase from the archaeon Aeropyrum pernix K1). Here we used microwave irradiation (MW) as the mode of heating to improve the enzyme performance. Under the optimum conditions, the enzyme activity of APE 1547(More)
Folate metabolism is thought to play an important role in carcinogenesis through its involvement in both DNA methylation and nucleotide synthesis. The association between the MTHFR Ala222Val polymorphism and bladder cancer has been widely reported, however, in general the data from published studies with individually low statistical power were controversial(More)
