OBJECTIVES A high loading dose of atorvastatin has been confirmed to reduce postprocedural events in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In this study, we sought to investigate the protective effects of rosuvastatin in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) undergoing PCI and to determine the effect of rosuvastatin(More)
BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction is tightly associated with cardiovascular complications in diabetic patients. This study aims to investigate the effects of mangiferin on the regulation of endothelial homeostasis under endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) conditions. RESULTS High glucose (25 mmol/L) exposure induced ER stress and promoted ROS(More)
Hexokinase-II (HK-II) confers protection against cell death and this study was designed to investigate the effect of mangiferin on the regulation of mitochondrial HK-II. In vessel endothelial cells, saturated fatty acid palmitate (PA) stimulation induced HK-II detachment from mitochondria due to cellular acidification. Mangiferin reduced lactate(More)
PURPOSE Mangiferin is a naturally occurring glucosylxanthone with beneficial effects on glucose and lipid homeostasis. This study investigates the potential therapeutic effect of Mangiferin in perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) and whether it contributes to regulating insulin action in the endothelium. METHODS Palmitate challenge evoked ROS-associated(More)
OBJECT To investigate the function of flavohaemoglobin (HMP) in Staphylococcus aureus RN6390 under the nitrification pressure, we constructed the hmp gene deletion mutant of RN6390 strain. METHODS According to principle of homologous recombination, we obtained the up stream and down stream sequences of hmp gene by PCR using chromosomal DNA of S. aureus(More)
