BACKGROUND Inflammation may lead to tissue injury. We have studied the modulation of inflammatory milieu-induced tissue injury, as exemplified by the mesothelium. Peritoneal dialysis is complicated by peritonitis episodes that cause loss of mesothelium. Proinflammatory cytokines are increased in the peritoneal cavity during peritonitis episodes. However(More)
Changes in the expression of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) in the peritoneum could be involved in the peritoneal dysfunction associated with peritoneal inflammation. Demonstrated recently in bovine endothelial cells was the existence of cytosolic proteins that bind to the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of eNOS mRNA and could be implicated in(More)
The aim was to analyze whether pericardial tissue expresses endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) protein and to determine the presence of cytosolic proteins that bind to eNOS mRNA. The effect of aspirin on the above-mentioned parameters was also analyzed. eNOS protein was expressed in pericardial tissue from male guinea pigs. Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide(More)
Biliopancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive solid neoplasms, and incidence is rising worldwide. It is known that ATF6α is one of the transmembrane proteins that acts crucially in endoplasmic reticulum stress response, and knockdown induces apoptosis of pancreatic cells. Apart from this, p-p38 has been previously correlated with better outcome in(More)
Polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) is a serine/threonine-protein kinase expressed during mitosis and overexpressed in multiple human cancers, including leukemia and also many solid tumors. PLK1 knockdown has been shown to block proliferation of leukemic cell lines and the clonogenic potential of tumor cells grown from patients with cancer. PLK1 inhibition is a(More)
OBJECTIVE Changes in the expression of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) in the peritoneum could be involved in the peritoneal dysfunction associated with peritoneal inflammation. The aim of the present study was to analyze the effect of Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on eNOS expression in samples of human peritoneum. The effect of(More)
