RNA interference-produced autoregulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase expression.
Feng C, Cao L, and Zuo Z.

Vector-mediated delivery of short-hairpin RNA (shRNA) to regulate gene expression holds a great therapeutic promise. We hypothesize that gene expression can be autoregulated with RNA interference. We used…

Inhibition of brain ischemia-caused notch activation in microglia may contribute to isoflurane postconditioning-induced neuroprotection in male rats.
Yin J, Li H, Feng C, Zuo Z.

Prolonged exposure to volatile anesthetics alone may be detrimental to the brain. However, volatile anesthetics, such as isoflurane, can provide neuroprotection against various damaging insults. Application of isoflurane…
