Effects of oxysophoridine on amino acids after cerebral ischemic injury in mice.
Ann Indian Acad Neurol
PUBLISHED: 01-26-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Our previous studies demonstrated that oxysophoridine (OSR) had neuroprotective effects on mice through antioxidant and anti-apoptotic mechanisms. In this study, we investigated whether OSR could influence the release of amino acids in ischemic mice brains.

Hide Abstract
Primary dysmenorrhea is one of the most frequent gynecological disorders in young women. Chinese herbal medicine has the advantage in terms of multi-targeting efficacy, lower toxicity, as well as lower cost. Core licorice is the hard and atropurpureus heart part in root and rootstock of Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch (Leguminosae), having a therapeutic effect on dysmenorrhea.

Protective effects of Lycium barbarum polysaccharide on neonatal rat primary cultured hippocampal neurons injured by oxygen-glucose deprivation and reperfusion.
J. Mol. Histol.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
This study investigated the protective effects of Lycium barbarum polysaccharide (LBP) on alleviating injury from oxygen-glucose deprivation/reperfusion (OGD/RP) in primary cultured rat hippocampal neurons. Cultured hippocampal neurons were exposed to oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) for 2 h followed by a 24 h re-oxygenation. The MTT assay and the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release were used to determine the neuron viability. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-PX), malondialdehyde (MDA) were determined by spectrophotometry using commercial kits. Mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) and the intracellular free calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) in hippocampal neurons were measured using the confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM). Treatment with LBP (10-40 mg/l) significantly attenuated neuronal damage and inhibited LDH release in a dose-dependent manner. Furthermore, LBP enhanced activities of SOD and GSH-PX but it decreased their MDA content, inhibited [Ca(2+)](i) elevation and decrease of MMP in ischemia-reperfusion treated hippocampal neurons. These findings suggested that LBP may be a potential neuroprotective agent for cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury.

Effects of HMG on revascularization and follicular survival in heterotopic autotransplants of mouse ovarian tissue.
Reprod. Biomed. Online
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Ovarian tissue transplantation is now considered as a procedure to preserve the fertility of young women patients undergoing cancer therapy. The present study investigated the effects and mechanism of human menopausal gonadotrophin (HMG) intervention on vascular remoulding in ovarian heterotopic autotransplantation. Ovaries of 8-week-old mice were cultured in vitro with different concentrations of HMG for 3h for measuring the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The cultured ovaries were implanted under the kidney capsule and removed 24, 36, 48 h or 1 month after transplantation. Revascularization, fluid exudation and the number of surviving ovarian follicles were observed. The results showed that VEGF was increased 1.6-6.5 times in the HMG intervention groups. Revascularization appeared 24-36 h after transplantation and was earlier than that of the control. Fluid exudation increased incrementally with increasing HMG concentrations. The total number of surviving ovarian follicles was increased by 1.2-1.5 times in the HMG 0.15 IU/ml group as compared with the other groups 1 month after transplantation. It is concluded that intervention with HMG in vitro before transplantation could improve the blood supply reconstruction and survival of the autotransplanted ovarian follicles, which might be associated with increased VEGF expression.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
