The previous research has shown that mitochondrial flash (mitoflash) genesis are functionally and mechanistically integrated with mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC) energy metabolism. However, the response of mitoflash to superoxide is not entirely consistent with the response of MitoSOX Red.

A simple and rapid method is described for staining semithin sections of material embedded in epoxy resin for observing tissues prior to transmission electron microscopy. The method is suitable for tissue fixed with a glutaraldehyde-formaldehyde mixture and postfixed in osmium
The phenothiazinium compound, methylene blue (MB), possesses diverse pharmacological actions and is attracting attention for the treatment of bipolar disorder and Alzheimer's disease. MB acts on both monoamine oxidase (MAO) and the nitric oxide (NO)-cGMP pathway, and possesses antidepressant activity

This study focuses on the application of electro-Fenton technique by use of catalytic activity of Fe alginate gel beads for the remediation of wastewater contaminated with synthetic dyes. The Fe alginate gel beads were evaluated for decolourisation of two typical
The synthesis of a new type of antagonist is described, capable of inactivating neuroreceptors with heretofore unattainable selectivity and permanence. These antagonists are referred to as mazek agonists (i.e. direct, inhibitory agonists) as they have the high receptor affinity and
