To investigate the morphological and growth characteristics of rabbit keratocytes when cultured on decellularized cornea under simulate microgravity (SMG) rotary cell culture system (RCCS) and static culture or in plastic culture supplemented with small molecules of valproic acid (VPA) and vitamin C (VC). Bovine corneas were firstly decellularized with(More)
Manganese (Mn) is an essential trace element of human. However, excessive Mn can cause manganism. Mn selectively accumulated in Mn-exposed workers' hippocampus which is crucial for higher brain functions such as learning, memory, and motivation during our postnatal life. Studies suggested sodium para-aminosalicylic acid (PAS) appeared to be therapeutic for(More)
Cell fate and function can be regulated and reprogrammed by intrinsic genetic program, extrinsic factors and niche microenvironment. Direct reprogramming has shown many advantages in the field of cellular reprogramming. Here we tried the possibility to generate corneal endothelia (CE) -like cells from human adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) by the(More)
Background. Genome-wide association studies have succeeded in detecting novel common variants which associate with complex diseases. As a result of the fast changes in next generation sequencing technology, a large number of sequencing data are generated, which offers great opportunities to identify rare variants that could explain a larger proportion of(More)
Myeloid cell leukemia-1 (Mcl-1) plays an important role in various cell survival pathways. Some studies indicated that the expression of Mcl-1 was upregulated in host cells during infection with the virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain, H37Rv. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of inhibiting Mcl-1 expression both in vivo and in(More)
BACKGROUND Etomidate is a rapid hypnotic intravenous anesthetic agent. The major side effect of etomidate is the reduced plasma concentration of corticosteroids, leading to the abnormal reaction of adrenals. Cortisol and testosterone biosynthesis has similar biosynthetic pathway, and shares several common steroidogenic enzymes, such as P450 side chain(More)
p53 mutation is known to contribute to cancer progression. Fascin is an actin-bundling protein and has been recently identified to promote cancer cell migration and invasion through its role in formation of cellular protrusions such as filopodia and invadopodia. However, the relationship between p53 and Fascin is not understood. Here, we have found a new(More)
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are abundant and ubiquitous in almost all organisms from bacteria to mammals. BmHSP20.8 is a small (sHSP) in Bombyx mori that contains a 561 bp open reading frame that encodes a protein of 186 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular mass of 20.8 kDa. The subcellular localization prediction indicated that BmHSP20.8 is likely(More)
