Serotonin (5-HT) is a central inhibitor of food intake in mammals. Thus far, the intracellular mechanisms for the effect of serotonin on appetite regulation remain unclear. It has been recently demonstrated that reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the hypothalamus are a crucial integrative target for the regulation of food intake. To investigate the role of(More)
The main purposes of this study were to investigate the effects of α-linolenic acid (ALA) on the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system of porcine primary hepatocytes with or without growth hormone (GH) or insulin and the potential role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α and -γ (PPARα/γ) pathway. We found that 1 μM ALA increased IGF-I(More)
Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a widespread trichothecene mycotoxin that commonly contaminates cereal crops and has various toxic effects in animals and humans. DON primarily targets the gastrointestinal tract, the first barrier against ingested food contaminants. In this study, an isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ)-based phosphoproteomic(More)
BACKGROUND Accuracy of implant placement in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is crucial. Traditional extramedullary alignment instruments are fairly effective for achieving the desired mean tibial component coronal alignment. We modified the traditional tibial plateau resection technique and evaluated its effect on alignment restoration. METHODS Two hundred(More)
