This study analyzed heart tissue remodeling in an animal model of HF induced by aortocaval fistula (ACF) and submitted to LA treatment. After 4 weeks of ACF, animals were treated with LA for 4 weeks (SHAM-LA, HF-LA) or for 8-12 weeks with saline (SHAM, HF8, HF12). Rats were euthanized and the hearts removed for histological processing. The samples were stained with Hematoxylin-Eosin (HE), Masson's Thichome (MT), or submitted to immunohistochemistry (IHC) for MMP9 and TIMP-1. Light microscopy analysis showed cardiac striated muscle without fibrosis in all experimental groups. Immunostaining of MMP9 and TIMP-1 were positive ...

Here, we generated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from a Chinese 11-year-old male with clinically diagnosed XLRS. Urine sample was collected with appropriate cooperation, then isolated cells were expanded for subsequent reprogram...

SokmenAbstractIn the present work, we are interested in calculating anisotropy dependence of the optical response in an ellipsoidal quantum dot with a hydrogenic impurity in the presence of high-frequency intense laser field within the framework of the effective mass approximation. The effects of the anisotropy of the system and laser field intensity on the energy levels and the respective impurity binding energies are calculated. It is shown that the electr...

By using ab initio calculations combining with nonequilibrium Green's function method, our important result here is that these superlattice junctions, regardless of their chirality and wi...

SolimanAbstractMany sensing applications depend on molecular adsorption on surfaces. Nanostructured materials have been the focus of many research efforts aimed at developing sensors for toxic gases. In this work, we study the adsorption of NO2 and SO2 molecules on boron nitride nanocones (BNNCs), using first principles calculations. Aluminum doping of BNNCs (Al–BNNCs) significantly increases the adsorption at the apex of the cone, with a minor change u...

Interestingly, we found that the discrepancy in morphology arose from a simply changing on the adding sequence of aqueous sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and CuCl2 with other conditions unchanged. Based on experimental results, the feasible formation mechanisms of both morphologies were deduced, where the relative concentration of SDS and CuCl2 was a cr...

This study aims to investigate whether the combination of CFL and 5-fluorouracil could reduce FAK protein level and iCa2+ and enhance p21 level. Furthermore, it is necessary to evaluate the response to treatment with new cancer therapeutic agents. After 24 hours of treatment, it was necessary to assess the percentage of apoptosis, FAK, and p21 protein expression by flow cytometry. iCa2+ concentration was measured using immunofluorescence. The combination therapy of CFL with 5-fluorouracil potently suppressed six treatment groups were included in this study. HT-29 cell lines were cultured and divided into six groups: group ...

Contributor : Shouhong GuangSeries Type : Non-coding RNA profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Caenorhabditis elegansPiwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) play significant roles in suppressing transposons and nonself nucleic acids, maintaining genome integrity, and defending against viral infections, and are essential for fertility in a variety of organisms. In C. elegans, most piRNA precursors are transcribed by RNA polymerase II in the nucleus and are subjected to a number of processing and maturation steps. However, the biogenesis of piRNAs is still not fully understood. We used functional proteomics to study piRNA...

This article aims to characterize the mental health status of men aged 60 years and over in Chile by using data from population-based surveys carried out in the country: the 2003 and 2009 National Health Surveys (NHS), the 2009 National Study of Dependency in Older Persons (ENADEAM), and the 2015 National Socioeconomic Characterization Survey (CASEN). The article looks at indicators for depression and depressive symptoms, suicide, and suicidal ideation, as well as mental health visits. According to reported figures from these surveys, older men in Chile constitute the population subgroup with the highest suicide rate, the ...
