Antioxidant and Hepatoprotective Activities of Mycelia Selenium Polysaccharide by Hypsizigus marmoreus SK-02.
China. In Biol Trace Elem Res, Feb 2016
The treatment of MSPS for CCl4-induced animal experiment demonstrated that the MSPS could reduce the levels of malondiadehyde (MDA), lipid peroxide (LPO), glutamic oxalacetic transaminase (AST), and glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (ALT) activities and improve the levels of glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), superoxide dismutase (SOD), total cholesterol (TC), and triglyceride (TG) in serum/liver homogenate against CCl4-induced injures.
High-Efficiency Polymer LEDs with Fast Response Times Fabricated via Selection of Electron-Injecting Conjugated Polyelectrolyte Backbone Structure.
Taejŏn, South Korea. In Acs Appl Mater Interfaces, Jan 2016
Imidazolium ionic side-group-containing fluorene-based conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) with different π-conjugated structures, poly[(9,9-bis(8'-(3″-methyl-1″-imidazolium)octyl)-2,7-fluorene)-alt-2,7-(9,9-dioctylfluorene)] dibromide (F8im-Br) and poly[(9,9-bis(8'-(3″-methyl-1″-imidazolium)octyl)-2,7-fluorene)-alt-(benzo(2,1,3)thiadiazol-4,8-diyl) dibromide (F8imBT-Br), are synthesized and utilized as an electron injection layer (EIL) in green-emitting F8BT polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs).
Psychological and physiological correlates of childhood obesity in Taiwan.
Taipei, Taiwan. In Sci Rep, 2014
We found that regarding physiological characteristics, compared with the healthy-weight children, the overweight/obese children had significantly higher values for body fat estimated using the bioelectrical impedance method (p < 0.001), systolic blood pressure (p < 0.001), and diastolic blood pressure (p = 0.001); lower values for high-density lipoprotein (p < 0.001); and worse values for glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (p < 0.001), triglycerides (p < 0.001), and fasting blood glucose (p = 0.049).
Bioactivity of neolignans from fructus Schizandrae.
Matera, Italy. In Mem Inst Oswaldo Cruz, 1990
Fructus Schizandrae sinensis Baill, a traditional Chinese medicine, used as tonic and sedative, has been shown at the beginning of 70's to lower the elevated serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) levels of patients suffering from chronic viral hepatitis.
