Cytogenetical effects of aluminum on root meristem cells of Helianthus annuus L.

Different aluminum concentrations (5, 50, and 100 μM), as well as different exposure times (24, 48, and 72 h), were applied to investigate cytogenetical alterations in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) meristem cells. Nucleolin was also examined under aluminum stress using silver-staining method and indirect immunofluorescent method. Results showed that the mitotic index decreased...

Prevalence and risk factors of stroke in the elderly in Northern China: data from the National Stroke Screening Survey

BackgroundThe overall global burden of stroke is considerable and increasing. In China, stroke is the leading cause of death and disability.MethodsFor this study, we used data from the National Stroke Screening Survey in 2012 and the 2010 Chinese population from sixth National Census of Populations to calculate a standardized (by age, gender, and education) stroke prevalence...

The specific status of Melastoma kudoi (Melastomataceae, Melastomeae)

BackgroundMelastoma has undergone rapid species radiation during the last one million years, and circumscription of some species in the genus has remained controversial. Melastoma kudoi, an erect species narrowly endemic to central Taiwan was previously treated as a synonym of M. intermedium, a semicreeping hybrid between the erect species M. candidum and the creeping M...

Aristolane-type Sesquiterpenoids from Nardostachys chinensis and Revised Structure of Aristolanhydride

Four hitherto unknown aristolane-type sesquiterpenes, including one novel 8,9-secoaristolane, namely secoaristolenedioic acid (1), two aristolone derivatives, namely 1α,2β-dihydroxyaristolone (2), 9-epidebilon (3), and one rare aristolane-chalcone hybrid, namely 3′-hydroxynardoaristolone A (4) were isolated from the ethanol extract of the roots and rhizomes of Nardostachys...

Inhibition of HDAC3 Ameliorates Cerebral Ischemia Reperfusion Injury in Diabetic Mice In Vivo and In Vitro

Background. A substantial increase in histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) expression is implicated in the pathological process of diabetes and stroke. However, it is unclear whether HDAC3 plays an important role in diabetes complicated with stroke. We aimed to explore the role and the potential mechanisms of HDAC3 in cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in diabetic state. Methods...

Structural roles of lipid molecules in the assembly of plant PSII−LHCII supercomplex

In plants, photosystem II (PSII) associates with light-harvesting complexes II (LHCII) to form PSII–LHCII supercomplexes. They are multi-subunit supramolecular systems embedded in the thylakoid membrane of chloroplast, functioning as energy-converting and water-splitting machinery powered by light energy. The high-resolution structure of a PSII–LHCII supercomplex, previously...

AGE/RAGE-Induced EMP Release via the NOX-Derived ROS Pathway

Objective. Diabetes is associated with accelerated formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that are extensively found in circulating endothelial microparticles (EMPs). This study aimed to investigate whether AGEs have a direct effect on EMP formation and the possible underlying mechanism. Methods. In vitro, cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were...

Rushan earthquake swarm in eastern China and its indications of fluid-triggered rupture

An extraordinary earthquake swarm occurred at Rushan on the Jiaodong Peninsula from October 1, 2013, onwards, and more than 12,000 aftershocks had been detected by December 31, 2015. All the activities of the whole swarm were recorded at the nearest station, RSH, which is located about 12 km from the epicenter. We examine the statistical characteristics of the Rushan swarm in...

Correlation between crystallographic anisotropy and dendritic orientation selection of binary magnesium alloys

General planar transverse domain walls realized by optimized transverse magnetic field pulses in magnetic biaxial nanowires

The statics and field-driven dynamics of transverse domain walls (TDWs) in magnetic nanowires (NWs) have attracted continuous interests because of their theoretical significance and application potential in future magnetic logic and memory devices. Recent results demonstrate that uniform transverse magnetic fields (TMFs) can greatly enhance the wall velocity, meantime leave a...

Multi-functional bismuth-doped bioglasses: combining bioactivity and photothermal response for bone tumor treatment and tissue repair

Treatment of large bone defects derived from bone tumor surgery is typically performed in multiple separate operations, such as hyperthermia to extinguish residual malignant cells or implanting bioactive materials to initiate apatite remineralization for tissue repair; it is very challenging to combine these functions into a material. Herein, we report the first photothermal (PT...
