Chondroitin sulfate (CS)/dermatan sulfate (DS) is a group of sulfated polymers, which play an essential role in various biological phenomena. In the kidney, they are present in small but significant amounts. Studies on their structure-function relationship in the kidney and their changes during diabetic conditions have not been rigorously looked into, which(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNA (miR) dysregulation in the myocardium has been implicated in cardiac remodeling after injury or stress. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to explore the role of miR in human CD34(+) cell (hCD34(+)) dysfunction in vivo after transplantation into the myocardium under ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) conditions. METHODS In response to(More)
Cardiac diseases are the predominant cause of human mortality in the United States and around the world. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that have been shown to modulate a wide range of biological functions under various pathophysiological conditions. miRNAs alter target expression by post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Numerous(More)
Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a common complication in patients with diabetes and is associated with underlying chronic inflammation and cardiac cell death, subsequently leading to heart failure (HF). ELAV-like protein 1 (ELAVL1) plays a critical role in the progression of inflammation and HF. However the role of ELAVL-1 in inflammation induced cardiac cell(More)
Delayed wound healing is one of the major complications in diabetes and is characterized by chronic proinflammatory response, and abnormalities in angiogenesis and collagen deposition. Sirtuin family proteins regulate numerous pathophysiological processes, including those involved in promotion of longevity, DNA repair, glycolysis and inflammation. However,(More)
The stability of mRNA has emerged as a key step in the regulation of eukaryotic gene expression and function. RNA stabilizing proteins (RSPs) contain several RNA recognition motifs, and selectively bind to adenylate-uridylate-rich elements in the 3' untranslated region of several mRNAs leading to altered processing, stability, and translation. These(More)
Efferocytosis, a process of clearance of apoptotic cells by phagocytes, is essential for successful resolution of inflammation and maintenance of tissue homeostasis. Diabetes compromises the function of macrophages leading to adverse inflammatory response during wound healing, myocardial injury, atherosclerosis and autoimmune disorders. However, the effect(More)
Diabetes mellitus is a multifunctional disorder with several causes and multiple consequences. Nutraceuticals play a vital role in ameliorating diabetic condition. The stems of the plant, Tinospora cordifolia (T. cordifolia) are often used in Ayurvedic medicine for the management of diabetes. Earlier studies have shown that T. cordifolia to be a potent(More)
Organ outgrowth, embryonic development, wound healing, and many such processes require the process of angiogenesis, whereby new blood vessels are developed from the preexisting vessels. microRNAs (miRs) are 18-24 nucleotide-containing endogenous RNAs that, via a posttranscriptional mechanism, exert substantial gene regulatory effects. It was discovered by(More)
Diabetes is known to alter kidney extracellular matrix (ECM) components. Chondroitin sulphate (CS)/dermatan sulphate (DS), an ECM component, which plays an essential role in kidney is altered during diabetes. The focus of this study has been to examine the effect of Tinospora cordifolia (TC) consumption, a potent plant widely used to treat diabetes, on(More)
