To seek natural products for the development of environment friendly mosquito control agents, fumigant activity of eleven essential oil compounds and the joint action of the active compounds were evaluated against Culex pipiens pallens adults. Fumigant bioassay demonstrated that carvacrol exhibited the highest fumigant activity followed by thymol and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the effects of β3-adrenoceptor (β3-AR) activation on HepG2 cells and its influence on cholesterol efflux from macrophage foam cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS HepG2 cells were cultured and treated with the β3-AR agonist, BRL37344, and antagonist, SR52390A, and the expression of apolipoprotein (Apo) A-I, ApoA-II,(More)
BACKGROUND Pro-protein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is a secreted protein that influences plasma levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Both oxidized LDL and tissue factor (TF) contributed to the development of prothrombotic state. The present study aims to explore the relationship between plasma level of PCSK9 and that of TF(More)
Hyperlipidemia can be harmful to the pancreas and β3-adrenoceptor agonist can improve lipid metabolism disorder. We aimed to study the effects of β3-adrenoceptor activation on glucose, insulin and the expression of pancreatic adrenoceptors and angiotensin II receptors. Ten C57BL/6J mice at the age of 10 weeks served as normal control, and forty age-matched(More)
BACKGROUND Statins may be beneficial in treating acute lung injury (ALI) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), but their application remains controversial. OBJECTIVES This meta-analysis of published studies investigated their potential benefit in ALI/ARDS treatment. METHODS PubMed, EMBASE, Google Scholar and Cochrane databases were searched and(More)
We studied the knockdown activity and lethal toxicity of 6 essential oil compounds-methyl salicylate, linalool, 2-phenethyl alcohol, eugenol, β-citronellol, and trans-cinnamaldehyde-as fumigants against adult female Culex pipiens pallens in the laboratory. Of the 6 products tested, trans-cinnamaldehyde was the most toxic (LC50  =  0.26 µl/l air, 24 h) with(More)
Hyperlipidemia can be harmful to the lung and β3-adrenoceptor agonist can improve lipid metabolism disorders. In this study, we aim to investigate the effects of β3-adrenoceptor activation on the interactions of adrenoceptors and angiotensin II receptors in aged apolipoprotein E gene knockout (ApoE(-/-)) mouse lung. Ten wild type C57BL/6J mice were included(More)
