The aim of present study was to check the possible association of potential parental environmental exposures and maternal supplementation intake with the risk of nonsyndromic orofacial clefting (NSOC). A retrospective study comprised 499 cases and 480 controls was conducted in Heilongjiang Province. Chi-square analysis and unconditional multiple logistic regression were used in the study. The results showed that maternal history of fever and the common cold without fever (ORCL/P = 3.11 and 5.56, 95%CI: 1.67-5...

Purpose. To investigate the outcome and toxicity of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patients with oligo-recurrence cancer in the lung (ORCL). Methods and Materials. A retrospective review of 42 patients with ORCL who underwent SBRT in our two hospitals was conducted. We evaluated the outcome and adverse effects after SBRT for ORCL. Results. All patients finished their SBRT course without interruptions of toxicity reasons. The median follow-up period was 20 months (range, 1-90 months). The 2-year local control rate and overall survival were 87% (95% CI, 75-99%) and 65% (95% CI, 48-82%)...

1. An outwardly rectifying Cl- (ORCl) current of murine osteoclasts was activated by hypotonic stimulation. The current was characterized by rapid activation, little inactivation, strong outward rectification, blockage by DIDS and permeability to organic acids (pyruvate and glutamate). 2. The hypotonically activated ORCl current was inhibited by intracellular dialysis with an ATP-free pipette solution, but not by replacement of ATP with a poorly hydrolysable ATP analogue adenosine 5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate)...

Effects of the extracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]o) on whole cell membrane currents were examined in mouse osteoclastic cells generated from bone marrow/stromal cell coculture. The major resting conductance in the presence of 1 mm Ca2+ was mediated by a Ba2+-sensitive, inwardly rectifying K+ (IRK) current. A rise in -Ca2+-o (5-40 mM) inhibited the IRK current and activated an 4'4'-diisothiocyano-2,2'-stilbenedisulfonate (DIDS)-sensitive, outwardly rectifying Cl- (ORCl) current. The activation of the ORCl current developed slowly and needed higher [Ca2+]o than that required to inhibit the IRK current...

Rat mucosal type mast cells are thought to possess only a K+-selective inwardly rectifying (IRK) current in the resting state. We used rat-bone-marrow-derived mast cells (BMMCs) as a model of mucosal mast cells and recorded whole-cell membrane currents from cells perforated with amphotericin B. Under these conditions, both inwardly rectifying (IR) and outwardly rectifying (OR) currents were observed. The reversal potential and conductance of the IR current depended on the extracellular K+ concentration, indicating that the channel was K+ selective...

Transport vesicles derived from the Golgi apparatus are thought to mediate biosynthetic transport across the Golgi stack. These vesicles are surrounded by a protein coat whose principal constituents are coatomer (a complex of seven distinct subunits or COPs) and ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF, an N-myristylated small GTP-binding protein). The coat proteins of the COP-coated vesicles were originally defined by ultrastructural criteria, however, and it is possible that important but minor coat proteins or cytoplasmic proteins needed for coat assembly may have been overlooked...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
