Abstract Zinc was discovered to be a novel second messenger in immunoreactive cells. We synthesized a novel free zinc chelator, IPZ-010. Here, we investigated the effects of IPZ-010 in a mouse postoperative ileus model and determined the effects of zinc signal inhibition as a new therapeutic strategy against postoperative ileus. Zinc waves were measured in bone marrow-derived mast cells (BMMCs) loaded with a zinc indicator, Newport green. Degranulation and cytokine expression were measured in BM...
Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a malignant gastrointestinal cancer that seriously threatens human health. Its morbidity and mortality are in the forefront of tumors. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy play an important role in the treatment of CRC, which can improve the survival time and quality of life of patients, but the treatment progress is slow, and the treatment effect is not satisfactory. In recent years, immunotherapy has been a new direction in the field of colorectal cancer treatment ...
Abstract Periplaneta americana is a common traditional Chinese medicinal material which has been used to treat arthritis, fever, aches, pains, and inflammation of the extremities for several hundred years. However, little scientific data exists in literature to support its use. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of Periplaneta americana extract (PAE) and explore its underlying mechanism. The antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and anal...
Abstract Baculovirus (BV) is a potential gene delivery vector but only mediates transient transgene expression and easily inactivated by human complement. To this end, we intend to develop a novel bivalent BV vector for complement resistance and sustained transgene expression, and evaluate its effect in anti-angiogenesis gene therapy. The results showed that the hybrid bivalent BV significantly prolonged the expression of enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) in vitro for at least 90 days at...
Abstract Silybin shows good effects against obesity and metabolic syndrome, but the systemic modulation effect of silybin has not been fully revealed. This study aims to investigate the metabolic regulation by silybin of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). C57BL/6 J mice were fed a high-fat/high-cholesterol diet for 8 weeks and treated with silybin (50 or 100 mg/kg/day) and sodium tauroursodeoxycholate (TUDCA, 50 mg/kg/day) by gavage for the last 4 weeks. Blood biochemical indexes and hepa...
Abstract In the present study, the synthesis and cytotoxic effect of six stilbenes and three oxepine derivatives against two cancerous – HeLa and U87, and two normal – EUFA30 and HEK293 cell lines has been reported. The results of cytotoxic assay and flow cytometry analysis revealed that compounds 9-nitrobenzo[b]naphtho[1,2-f]oxepine (4), (E)-3,3′,4,4′,5,5′-hexamethoxystilbene (6) and 4-hydroxy-2′,4′-dinitrostilbene (8) were the most active and their interaction with tubulin (crystal structure f...
Abstract Objective Intestinal mucosal barrier damage is an important mechanism for the development of sepsis and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. At present, there are no satisfactory and effective methods for the protection of the intestinal mucosal barrier. Jinzhi, the first fecal microbiota transplantation worldwide, is often used to treat critically ill patients; however, the specific mechanism involved in this process remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the therape...
Abstract Objectives Modification of lysine 4 on histone H3 methylation by SET1 and MLL family methyltransferase complexes is tightly linked to cancer progression. DPY30 is an important subunit of SET1 and MLL complexes, however, its expression and roles in cancer progression was little known, especially in cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Materials and Methods The Q-PCR and IHC were performed to detect the levels of DPY30 mRNA and protein in CCA tissues. Effect of DPY30 knockdown on the proliferation o...
