Retracting hypertrophic scars resulting from healed burn wounds heavily impact on the patients' life quality. Biomaterial scaffolds guiding burned-out skin regeneration could suppress or lessen scar retraction. Here we report a novel silk noil-based three-dimensional (3D) nonwoven scaffold produced by carding and needling with no formic acid exposure, which(More)
Wound dressing is critical important for cutaneous wound healing. However, the application of current products is limited due to poor mechanical property, unsuitable water vapor transmission rate (WVTR), poor anti-infective property or poor biocompatibility, etc. In the present study, a microporous silicone rubber membrane bilayer (SRM-B) composed of two(More)
In aged subjects, late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) starts in the lateral entorhinal allocortex where a failure of clearance mechanisms triggers an accumulation of neurotoxic amyloid-β42 oligomers (Aβ42-os). In neurons and astrocytes, Aβ42-os enhance the transcription of Aβ precursor protein (APP) and β-secretase/BACE1 genes. Thus, by acting together(More)
Mitsugumin 53 (MG53), a newly identified muscle-specific protein, is an essential component of the cell membrane repair machinery in skeletal and cardiac muscle. However, the role of MG53 after burns in other tissues remains unclear. This study aims to investigate the possible roles of MG53 in the protection of the kidney after severe burn injury, and an(More)
Physiological non-amyloidogenic processing (NAP) of amyloid precursor holoprotein (hAPP) by α-secretases (e.g., ADAM10) extracellularly sheds neurotrophic/neuroprotective soluble (s)APPα and precludes amyloid-β peptides (Aβs) production via β-secretase amyloidogenic processing (AP). Evidence exists that Aβs interact with calcium-sensing receptors (CaSRs) in(More)
Protein kinase (PK)Cζ signaling at various subcellular levels affects cell survival, differentiation, growth and/or apoptosis. However, the mechanisms modulating PKCζ activity at the nuclear membrane (NM) are not yet fully understood. Previously, we demonstrated that PKCζ interacts with the B‑cell lymphoma 10 (Bcl10) protein at the NM of human cervical(More)
