    • Cervical Vagus Nerve Stimulation Improves Neurologic Outcome After Cardiac Arrest in Mice by Attenuating Oxidative Stress and Excessive Autophagy. 

      Duan, Weina; Sun, Qian; Wu, Xiaojing; Xia, Zhongyuan; Warner, David S; Ulloa, Luis; Yang, Wei; ... (8 authors) (Neuromodulation : journal of the International Neuromodulation Society, 2022-04)
      <h4>Background</h4>Cerebral ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) induces oxidative stress and activates autophagy, leading to brain injury and neurologic deficits. Cervical vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) increases cerebral blood ...
    • Drebrin attenuates atherosclerosis by limiting smooth muscle cell transdifferentiation. 

      Wu, Jiao-Hui; Zhang, Lisheng; Nepliouev, Igor; Brian, Leigh; Huang, Taiqin; Snow, Kamie P; Schickling, Brandon M; ... (11 authors) (Cardiovascular research, 2021-04-29)
      <h4>Aims</h4>The F-actin-binding protein Drebrin inhibits smooth muscle cell (SMC) migration, proliferation and pro-inflammatory signaling. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that Drebrin constrains atherosclerosis.<h4>Methods ...
    • Ornithine Lipids in Burkholderia spp. Pathogenicity. 

      Córdoba-Castro, Luz América; Salgado-Morales, Rosalba; Torres, Martha; Martínez-Aguilar, Lourdes; Lozano, Luis; Vences-Guzmán, Miguel Ángel; Guan, Ziqiang; ... (10 authors) (Frontiers in molecular biosciences, 2020-01)
      The genus Burkholderia sensu lato is composed of a diverse and metabolically versatile group of bacterial species. One characteristic thought to be unique for the genus Burkholderia is the presence of two forms each (with ...
    • Oxidative Stress and Thrombosis during Aging: The Roles of Oxidative Stress in RBCs in Venous Thrombosis. 

      Wang, Qinhong; Zennadi, Rahima (International journal of molecular sciences, 2020-06-15)
      Mid-life stage adults are at higher risk of developing venous thrombosis (VT)/thromboembolism (VT/E). Aging is characterized by an overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which could evoke a series of physiological ...
