Endothelial apoptosis triggered by oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) can accelerate the progression of endothelial dysfunction atherosclerosis. Phosphocreatine (PCr) is a natural compound, which has been used in cardiac disease and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. However, its protective effects on atherosclerosis and its mechanism have not been(More)
T cells play an important role in tumor immune surveillance. CD147 is a member of immunoglobulin superfamily present on the surface of many tumor cells and mediates malignant cell behaviors. Cyclophilin A (CypA) is an intracellular protein promoting inflammation when released from cells. CypA is a natural ligand for CD147. In this study, CD147 specific(More)
Glioma is the world's commonest primary brain malignancy with much of its biology relating to translational and post-translational events still unknown. In this study, we investigated the clinicopathological significance of N-linked β1-6-GlcNAc branches and GnT-V enzyme in the development and progression of astrocytic glioma. Expression of GnT-V and its(More)
Cancer is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality around the globe. For certain types of cancer, chemotherapy drugs have been extensively used for treatment. However, severe side effects and the development of resistance are the drawbacks of these agents. Therefore, development of new agents with no or minimal side effects is of utmost importance. In(More)
GALNT4 belongs to a family of N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases, which catalyze the transfer of GalNAc to Serine or Threonine residues in the initial step of mucin-type O-linked protein glycosylation. This glycosylation type is the most complex post-translational modification of proteins, playing important roles during cellular differentiation and in(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous Gram negative opportunistic pathogen capable of causing severe nosocomial infections in humans, and tobramycin is currently used to treat P. aeruginosa associated lung infections. Quorum sensing regulates biofilm formation which allows the bacterium to result in fatal infections forcing clinicians to extensively use(More)
The Notch signalling pathway is essential for proper cell growth and development. Many factors interact in the cellular context to bring about its effects. Critical to this process is the influence of Pofut1 whose function is to fucosylate Notch receptors and ligands on the cell surface for proper interaction. Of the three liver cell lines, HepG2, SMMC-7721(More)
Neuronal PAS domain protein 3 (NPAS3) and VGF (VGF Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) Inducible) are important for neurogenesis and psychiatric disorders. Previously, we have demonstrated that NPAS3 regulates VGF at the transcriptional level. In this study, VGF (non-acronymic) was found regulated by NPAS3 in neuronal stem cells. However, the underlying mechanism of(More)
Lentinula edodes C91-3 is an edible mushroom that has demonstrated a remarkable anti-tumor effect in various cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo. In the present study, we report the ability of recombinant thioredoxin-like latcripin 11 (LP-11) of Lentinula edodes C91-3 to suppress the proliferation of various cancer cells. The LP-11 gene of Lentinula(More)
Candida albicans is a minor component of the oral microbiota and an opportunistic pathogen that takes advantage of the immunocompromised host and causes oral mucositis and oral candidiasis. This organism is able to undergo phenotypic modification from a yeast to hyphae growth phase, one of the key arsenals for immune cell evasion, tissue invasion and(More)
