The purpose of our study was to establish the profile of cortical reorganization in whole BPAI on rats and evaluate changes of cortical reorganization after repair of the median nerve with the contralateral C7 root transfer. Forty adult SD rats underwent whole roots avulsion of left brachial plexus, among them 20 received contralateral C7 root transfer to(More)
BACKGROUND The restoration of sensory and motor function in brachial plexus root avulsion patients is a difficult challenge. The central nervous system plays an important role in sensory recovery after peripheral nerve injury and repair. OBJECTIVE To investigate the sensory restoration process after surgery at the cortical level in rodent models with a(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the role of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in the pathogenesis of cardiac hypertrophy induced by hypertension. METHODS Using immunofluorescent labeling, confocal microscopy and Western blotting, the expression and subcellular localization of FAK in the cardiac myocytes of left ventricle were determined in 2, 6, 12, and 18 month-old(More)
It has been demonstrated that there could be long range interhemispheric reorganization between bilateral hemispheres after peripheral cross nerve transfer. Our previous studies found a striking dynamic process of interhemispheric functional reorganization in adult rats with cross seventh cervical nerve transfer. But it remains a question whether the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in cardiac hypertrophy induced by hypertension. METHODS Using immunofluorescent labeling, confocal microscopy and Western blot, the expression and subcellular location of FAK-pSer722 and FAK-pSer910 were determined in cardiac myocytes of the left ventricles from 2, 6, 12, and 18 month-old(More)
