BACKGROUND The immunoregulatory properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been well characterized in vitro. However, the role of MSCs in organ transplantation remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine the role of indoleamine 2, 3-dioxgenase (IDO)-transfected MSCs in immunoregulation both in vitro and in vivo. METHODS Wild-type (WT)(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To reveal the potential pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. METHODS GSE9943 were downloaded from Genome Expression Omnibus database, including I/R and control samples for both Brown Norway (BN) and Sprague Dawley (SD) rats (3 rats/each group). Then differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by limma package.(More)
The need for reliable biomarkers for monitoring disease activity in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) is increasing. This study aimed at characterizing the correlation between serum sTREM-1 levels and diseases activity in Chinese patients with UC. Consecutive 76 patients with UC and 20 healthy subjects were prospectively enrolled. The disease activity(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to explore the potential role of TRPC6 in the pathophysiology of HK-2 cell injury following ischemia reperfusion (I/R). MATERIAL AND METHODS TRPC6 expression was analyzed by immunofluorescence staining. siRNA was transfected to knockout of TRPC6 in HK-2 cells, and in vitro I/R was then induced. Cell apoptosis and(More)
