Cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity leaded to apoptosis of tubular epithelial cells (ECs) and tubulointerstitial fibrosis through ROS stress and inflammatory cytokines. Tubulointerstitial fibrosis caused by cisplatin might be via activation of resident fibroblasts and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of tubular ECs. Inflammatory niche was crucial for(More)
Cordyceps Sobolifera (CS), an economic traditional Chinese herb, may ameliorate nephrotoxicity-induced renal dysfunction in the rat via antioxidant, anti-apoptosis, and anti-autophagy mechanisms. We investigated the water extract of fermented whole broth of CS on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced renal cell injury in vitro and in vivo. CS effect on(More)
OBJECTIVE Evidence that vasodilator nitric oxide mediates normal pulmonary vascular tone has led to the hypothesis that endothelial injury induced by congenital heart disease with increased pulmonary blood flow disrupts these regulatory mechanisms and its associated altered vascular reactivity. Therefore, we hypothesized that increased pulmonary blood flow(More)
BACKGROUND Arteriovenous shunt in the rat is an extremely useful experimental animal model for investigating cardiac hypertrophy as well as the hemodynamics and endocrine aspects of chronic heart failure. AIMS The present study was to develop 2 pre-tricuspid and 1 post-tricuspid models of arteriovenous shunt to induce right ventricular hypertrophy and(More)
Mutations in EGFR drive tumor growth but render tumor cells sensitive to treatment with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). Phenotypic alteration in epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been linked to the TKI resistance in lung adenocarcinoma. However, the mechanism underlying this resistance remains unclear. Here we report that high expression(More)
