Elevated blood levels of homocysteine (Hcy), hyperhomocysteinemia or homocystinuria, have been associated with various diseases and conditions. Homocysteine thiolactone (Hcy TL) is a metabolite of Hcy and reacts with amine groups in proteins to form stable amides, homocystamides, or N-homocysteinylated proteins. It has been proposed that protein(More)
The trefoil factor family (TFF) is a group of short secretory peptides of gastric mucous neck cells. The loss of TFF2 protein expression enhances gastric inflammation and occurs in gastric cancer. In this study, we examined the effect of TFF2 on gastric cancer cell lines in vitro and characterized the interaction between TFF2 and Sp3, including the(More)
A novel stimuli-responsive organic/inorganic nanocomposite hydrogel (NC hydrogel) with excellent mechanical properties was synthesized by in situ polymerization of 2-(2-methoxyethoxy) ethyl methacrylate (MEO(2)MA), oligo (ethylene glycol) methacrylate (OEGMA) and acrylic acid (AAc), as the polymeric matrix (PMOA), and fibrillar attpulgite (AT), as the(More)
