OBJECTIVE: Previous studies show that platelet aggregation and asymmetric dimethyl arginine (ADMA) are increased in hypertensive patients and animals. However, the relationship between endogenous ADMA and platelet aggregation in spontaneous hypertensive rats (SHR) remains unclear. Since Losartan can increase the nitric oxide (NO) release and ameliorate the state of thrombosis, we aimed to test whether the beneficial effect of losartan on platelet aggregation results from the reduction of ADMA generation...

MicroRNAs play diverse roles in various physiological processes during Drosophila development. In the present study, we reported that miR-11 regulates pupal size during Drosophila metamorphosis via targeting Ras85D with following evidences: pupal size was increased in the miR-11 deletion mutant; restoration of miR-11 in the miR-11 deletion mutant rescued the increased pupal size phenotype observed in the miR-11 deletion mutant; ectopic expression of miR-11 in brain insulin-producing cells (IPCs) and whole body shows consistent alteration of pupal size; Dilps and Ras85D expressions were negatively regulated by miR-11 in vivo; miR-11 targets Ras85D through directly binding to Ras85D 3'UTR in vitro; removal of one copy of Ras85D in the miR-11 deletion mutant rescued the increased pupal size phenotype observed in the miR-11 deletion mutant...

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) hold considerable potential for regenerative medicine, but their application is limited by the lack of an efficient method to control differentiation and track the migration of implanted cells in vivo. In this study, we developed a multifunctional nanocarrier based on upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) for controlling differentiation and long-term tracking of hMSCs. The UCNPs are conjugated with the peptide (Cys-Arg-Gly-Asp, CRGD) and the differentiation-inducing kartogenin (KGN) via a photocaged linker on the surface, and the obtained UCNP nanocarrier can be efficiently uptaken by hMSCs...

In the present study, quick lime based thermal-alkaline sludge disintegration under low temperature was combined with cryptic growth to investigate the excess sludge reduction efficiency in the SBR. The optimized condition of sludge disintegration was as follows: T=80℃, pH=11, t=180min, and the sludge disintegration rate was about 42.1%. With 65.6% of excess sludge disintegrated and returned to the SBR, the system achieved sludge reduction rate of about 40.1%. The lysis-cryptic growth still obtained satisfactory sludge reduction efficiency despite of the comparative low sludge disintegration rate, which suggested that disintegration rate might not be the decisive factor for crypitc growth based sludge reduction...
