As a mild, highly contagious, respiratory disease, swine influenza always damages the innate immune systems, and increases susceptibility to secondary infections which results in considerable morbidity and mortality in pigs. Nevertheless, the systematical host response of pigs to swine influenza virus infection remains largely unknown. To explore it, a(More)
Porcine interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 3 (poIFIT3) is one of the genes most abundantly induced by IFN-α/β and swine influenza virus (SIV). However, little information is available about the role of poIFIT3 in host defense among pigs. In this study, we detected the upregulation of poIFIT3 in porcine alveolar macrophages (PAM)(More)
It is widely recognized that thrombosis is the major event in the evolution of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and acute ischemic stroke (AIS). But the contribution of coagulation factors to the development of ischemic arterial diseases is still not clearly established. The goal of this study was to establish the possible relationship between coagulation(More)
This study identifies Salsola laricifolia as a C3–C4 intermediate in tribe Salsoleae s.l., Chenopodiaceae, and compares S. laricifolia with the previously described C3–C4 intermediates in Salsoleae. Photosynthetic pathway characteristics were studied in four species of this tribe including S. laricifolia, C3 Sympegma regelii, C3–C4 S. arbusculiformis, and(More)
BACKGROUND To observe the effects of cinnamic acid (CINN) on the expression of tissue factor (TF) induced by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) in human umbilical vein endothelium-derived cell line (ECV304) and the related mechanisms. METHODS Cellular TF activity was determined with 1-stage clotting assay in the presence or absence of anti-TF antibody(More)
