Expression and Function of Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 Ion Channels in the Caudal Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (open access)

Expression and Function of Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 Ion Channels in the Caudal Nucleus of the Solitary Tract

The article describes a study that tested and confirmed the hypothesis that TRPA1 expressed in the primary sensory afferents may modulate the function of second order NTS neurons. The expression of TRPA1 was detected in presynaptic locations, but not the somata of caudal NTS neurons that did not express TRPA1 mRNA or proteins. Moreover, caudal NTS neurons did not show somatodendritic responsiveness to TRPA1 agonists, while TRPA1 immunostaining was detected only in the afferent fibers.

Cataract Preventive Role of Isolated Phytoconstituents: Findings from a Decade of Research (open access)

Cataract Preventive Role of Isolated Phytoconstituents: Findings from a Decade of Research

This review aims to find effective phytoconstituents in cataract treatments in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo. Scientists have focused their attention not only for anti-cataract activity in vitro, but also in ex vivo and in vivo from the review of active phytoconstituents in medicinal plants. In our present review, we identified 58 active phytoconstituents with strong anti-cataract effects at in vitro and ex vivo with lack of in vivo studies.

Mechanical property enhancement of self-bonded natural fiber material via controlling cell wall plasticity and structure (open access)

Mechanical property enhancement of self-bonded natural fiber material via controlling cell wall plasticity and structure

This article explores self-bonded natural fiber material (SNFM) as a promising alternative for plastic and wood owing to its abundant raw material resources and low environmental impact. In this study, a high-performance SNFM was developed by the comprehensive treatments for the plasticity and structure of fiber cell walls. The self-bonded mechanism for natural fiber materials was also discussed. The SNFM products showed excellent mechanical performance, which was superior to that of natural wood and plastic.

Developing Evaluation Frameworks for Business Models in China’s Rural Markets (open access)

Developing Evaluation Frameworks for Business Models in China’s Rural Markets

This article draws on case analysis to present two frameworks for evaluating two types of business models, and, through open coding and axial coding on eight Chinese cases, identifies the main components for the evaluation frameworks and critical factors within each component. Using the coding results as a lens, the article applies a cross-case comparative data analysis to establish the multi-level evaluation systems and provides suggestions for entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to better their business model design in China’s rural markets.
