OBJECTIVE To clarify the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by comparing protein expression in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) from patients with RA with that in FLS from normal subjects, using proteomics analysis. METHODS Proteins extracted from primary cultures of FLS obtained from 50 patients with RA and 10 normal subjects were analyzed by(More)
In this study, we analyzed a water-soluble polysaccharide MP-I isolated from Mytilus coruscus. MP-I was obtained by hot-water extraction, anion-exchange and gel-permeation chromatography. Complete hydrolysis, periodate oxidation, methylation analysis, as well as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are known to play important roles in liver regeneration, although the role of miRNAs associated with the termination of liver regeneration is not as well studied. Here we reported the down-regulation of miR-23b in the termination stage of liver regeneration in rats. In addition, Smad3 was identified as a target of miR-23b during liver(More)
Lithospermic acid (LSA) was originally isolated from the roots of Salvia mitiorrhiza, a common herb of oriental medicine. Previous studies demonstrated that LSA has antioxidant effects. In this study, we investigated the in vitro xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitory activity, and in vivo hypouricemic and anti-inflammatory effects of rats. XO activity was(More)
AML1-ETO fusion gene is generated from chromosomal translocation t(8;21) mainly in acute myeloid leukemia M2 subtype (AML-M2). Its spliced variant transcript, AML1-ETO9a, rapidly induces leukemia in murine model. To evaluate its clinical significance, AML1-ETO9a expression was assessed in 118 patients with t(8;21) AML-M2, using qualitative and nested(More)
Tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA), one of the major active constituents of the medicinal herb Salvia miltiorrhiza, has been reported to possess neuroprotective effects against the pathological features of Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the molecular mechanism underlying this effect remains unclear. To examine the effect of Tan IIA on AD, as well as the underlying(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs are a class of small regulatory RNAs that modulate a variety of biological processes, including cellular differentiation, apoptosis, metabolism and proliferation. This study aims to explore the effect of miR-34a in hepatocyte proliferation and its potential role in liver regeneration termination. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDING MiR-34a(More)
This study was carried out to investigate whether shark hepatic stimulator substance (HSS) can prevent acute liver injury and affect mitochondrial function and antioxidant defenses in a rat model of thioacetamide (TAA)-induced liver injury. The acute liver injury was induced by two intraperitoneal injections of TAA (400 mg/kg) in a 24 h interval. In the TAA(More)
Liver regeneration (LR) is of great clinical significance in various liver-associated diseases. LR proceeds along a sequence of three distinct phases: priming/initiation, proliferation, and termination. Compared with the recognition of the first two phases, little is known about LR termination and structure/function reorganization. A combination of "omics"(More)
A new 24-membered ring lactone, macrolactin S, was isolated from a culture broth of marine Bacillus sp. and its structure was established by various spectral analyses. Macrolactin S is the first macrolactin hydroxylated at C-12. Besides, the known compounds macrolactin A and macrolactin B were also isolated, which were elucidated on the basis of spectral(More)
