Involvement of Endothelin 1 in Remote Preconditioning-Induced Cardioprotection through connexin 43 and Akt/GSK-3β Signaling Pathway

The present study was aimed to explore the role of endothelins in remote preconditioning (RP)-induced myocardial protection in ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. RP stimulus was given by subjecting hind limb to four cycles of ischemia and reperfuion (5 minutes each) using blood pressure cuff in male rats. Following RP, hearts were isolated and subjected to 30 minutes of ischemia...

Best practices for the design, laboratory analysis, and reporting of trials involving fatty acids

Fatty acids are among the most studied nutrients in human metabolism and health. Endogenous fatty acid status influences health and disease via multiple mechanisms at all stages of the life cycle. Despite widespread interest, attempts to summarize the results of multiple studies addressing similar fatty acid–related outcomes via meta-analyses and systematic reviews have been...

Rapid Determination of Pyrrolidinium Cations by Ion-Pair Chromatography With Imidazolium Ionic Liquids

This article describes a pioneering ion-pair chromatography with indirect ultraviolet detection with imidazolium ionic liquids (ILs) as ultraviolet absorption reagent and eluting agent for determination of pyrrolidinium cations. Three pyrrolidinium cations were analyzed on a reversed-phase silica-based monolithic column by isocratic elution with imidazolium ILs–ion-pair reagents...

Fenugreek Compound (N55) Lowers Plasma Glucose through the Enhancement of Response of Physiological Glucagon-like peptide-1

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor (GLP-1R) analogues are approved for treating type 2 diabetes, but are known to activate GLP-1R signaling globally and constitutively. Active compound N55, previously isolated from fenugreek, enhances the potency of GLP-1 without activating GLP-1R. Here we investigated if N55 lowers plasma glucose base on physiological levels of GLP-1. N55...

Simulated blast overpressure induces specific astrocyte injury in an ex vivo brain slice model

Exposure to explosive blasts can produce functional debilitation in the absence of brain pathology detectable at the scale of current diagnostic imaging. Transient (ms) overpressure components of the primary blast wave are considered to be potentially damaging to the brain. Astrocytes participate in neuronal metabolic maintenance, blood–brain barrier, regulation of homeostatic...

The antifungal effects and mechanical properties of silver bromide/cationic polymer nano-composite-modified Poly-methyl methacrylate-based dental resin

-guo Chai Li-juan Shen Yu-hong Xiao OPEN Poly-methyl methacrylate (PMMA)-based dental resins with strong and long-lasting antifungal properties are critical for the prevention of denture stomatitis

Phylogeny and reclassification of Aconitum subgenus Lycoctonum (Ranunculaceae)

Phylogenetic analyses were performed using multiple nuclear (ITS and ETS) and chloroplast regions (ndhF-trnL, psbA-trnH, psbD-trnT, and trnT-trnL) to test the monophyly of Aconitum subgen. Lycoctonum (Ranunculaceae) and reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships within the subgenus. The subgenus as currently circumscribed is revealed to be polyphyletic. To achieve its monophyly...

High current density on electroplating smooth alkaline zinc coating

The behaviours of the Zinc coating would be subjected to the complex zinc anion, and also the additives, current densities and compositions of electroplating bath. In this study, the complex agents (anise aldehyde and Lugalvan P) were added into the electroplating bath to improve the anti-corrosion ability and inhibit dendritic structure on zinc coating. The Lugalvan P is added...

Robust Stability, Stabilization, and Control of a Class of Nonlinear Discrete Time Stochastic Systems

This paper studies robust stability, stabilization, and control for a class of nonlinear discrete time stochastic systems. Firstly, the easily testing criteria for stochastic stability and stochastic stabilizability are obtained via linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Then a robust state feedback controller is designed such that the concerned system not only is internally...

Polydatin Protects Rat Liver against Ethanol-Induced Injury: Involvement of CYP2E1/ROS/Nrf2 and TLR4/NF-B p65 Pathway

Excessive alcohol consumption leads to serious liver injury, associating with oxidative stress and inflammatory response. Previous study has demonstrated that polydatin (PD) exerted antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and attenuated ethanol-induced liver damage, but the research remained insufficient. Hence, this experiment aimed to evaluate the hepatoprotective effect and...

Two-photon decays of \(\eta _c\) from lattice QCD

We present an exploratory lattice study for the two-photon decay of \(\eta _c\) using \(N_f=2\) twisted mass lattice QCD gauge configurations generated by the European Twisted Mass Collaboration. Two different lattice spacings of \(a=0.067\) fm and \(a=0.085\) fm are used in the study, both of which are of physical size of 2 fm. The decay widths are found to be 1.025(5) KeV for...

Senecio changii (Asteraceae: Senecioneae), a New Species from Sichuan, China

Senecio changii (Asteraceae: Senecioneae), a new species from Muli, Sichuan, southwestern China, is described. It is distinguished in Chinese Senecio s.s. by having lyrate-pinnatisect to pinnatisect leaves and a single terminal large discoid capitulum which is somewhat nodding. Evidence from floral micromorphology, karyology and molecular phylogenetic analyses based on the...
