Interferon gamma (IFNγ) is a strong inhibitor of osteoclast differentiation and activity. However, its role in osteoblastogenesis has not been carefully examined. Using microarray expression analysis, we found that several IFNγ inducible genes were upregulated during early phases of osteoblast differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC). We(More)
BACKGROUND CpG islands in hepatitis B virus (HBV) genome are potential targets for methylation mediated gene silencing, and may be involved in the pathogenesis of HBV infection. To date, their characteristics in HBV quasispecies (QS) remain largely unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of CpG islands in HBV QS. METHODS(More)
We investigated the prevalence of neutralizing antibodies (NA) to human Adenovirus (Ad) 5 both in healthy subjects (HS) and Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) patients in Shanghai. Detection of anti-Ad5 NA (percentage of detection and titers) was similar between HS and CHB patients. A high percentage of subjects harbored no detectable antibodies (32.2 %) while(More)
The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor plays an important role in the development of the autotomy after dorsal root ganglionectomy (DRGn). In this study, we further investigated the expression of the NMDAR1 in the spinal cord of the rats after right DRGn by immunohistochemical analyses. Computerized densitometric analysis of the NMDAR1 immunoreactivity(More)
