Background: Gastroschisis has been assumed to have a low rate of syndromic and primary malformations. We aimed to systematically review and explore the frequency and type of malformations/chromosomal syndromes and to identify significant biological/genetic roles in gastroschisis.
Methods: Population-based, gastroschisis-associated anomalies/chromosomal defects published 1950-2018 (PubMed/MEDLINE) were independently searched by two reviewers. Read More

Japanese encephalitis (JE), characterized by extensive neuroinflammation following infection with neurotropic JE virus (JEV), is becoming a leading cause of viral encephalitis due to rapid changes in climate and demography. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) plays an important role in restricting neuroinvasion of peripheral leukocytes and virus, thereby regulating the progression of viral encephalitis. In this study, we explored the role of CD11c(hi) dendritic cells (DCs) in regulating BBB integrity and JE progression using a conditional depletion model of CD11c(hi) DCs. Read More

Background: Embryo cryopreservation is the process that water is removed from the cell by cryoprotectant materials, and embryos are stored at temperature below zero. This process may affect the viability and developmental potential of embryos.
Objective: In this study, the effect of the vitrification cryotop method on the expression level of Oct4 and Mest developmental genes in mouse blastocysts was examined. Read More

The cytotoxicity of dihydroartemisinin (DHART; an active metabolite of artemisinin or ART) was investigated using murine GT1-7 hypothalamic neurons. A decrease in neuronal cell viability was observed in DHART-treated cells typically after 6 h of incubation. When neuronal cells were exposed to DHART for 24 h, the value of IC₅₀ was found to be 24 ± 3. Read More
