The CBL-CIPK signaling pathway represents a central and critical signaling system involved in plant response to abiotic stress and hormone signaling. In this study, we focused on AtCIPK6 gene, which have been shown to be required for development and salt tolerance in Arabidopsis, but the transcriptional regulatory mechanism of AtCIPK6 gene and whether it(More)
A CBL-interacting protein kinase (CIPK) gene, BnCIPK6, was isolated in Brassica napus. Through yeast two-hybrid screening, 27 interaction partners (including BnCBL1) of BnCIPK6 were identified in Brassica napus. Interaction of BnCIPK6 and BnCBL1 was further confirmed by BiFC (bimolecular fluorescence complementation) in plant cells. Expressions of BnCIPK6(More)
Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), a NAD+-dependent class III histone deacetylase, participates in regulating cellular apoptosis, senescence and metabolism by deacetylating histones and multiple transcription factors. In this study, we aimed to determine the effect of SIRT1 on the apoptosis of vascular adventitial fibroblasts (VAFs) and related signaling pathways. SIRT1(More)
BACKGROUND Glycogen synthase kinase 3β(GSK3β) is a ubiquitous serine-threonine protein kinase that participates in numerous cellular processes and disease pathophysiology. We aimed to determine therapeutic potential of GSK3β inhibition and its mechanism in a well-characterized model of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced model of acute liver failure (ALF). (More)
In the present study, we investigated the anti-fatigue activity in male Kunming mice of extracts of stem bark from Acanthopanax senticosus (ASSE) using a forced swimming test. Mice were divided into four groups (three ASSE administered groups and the control group). The control group were gavaged with distilled water and ASSE administered groups were(More)
Our previous studies have demonstrated that glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) activity is increased in the progression of acute liver failure (ALF), which aggravates liver injury, while its regulatory mechanism remains elusive. This study is designated to address whether oxidative stress activates GSK3β to promote ALF. In a murine model induced by(More)
p62/sequestosome-1 is a multifunctional adapter protein implicated in selective autophagy, cell signaling pathways, and tumorigenesis, and plays an important role at the crossroad between autophagy and cancer. But, the connection between autophagy and cancer is complex and in some cases contradictory. Human colorectal cancer tissues from patients were(More)
Klotho has been identified as a tumor suppressor in several human malignancies including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the signaling pathways involved in the tumor suppressive role of klotho in HCC have not been reported. Here, we investigated the role of klotho in HCC cell proliferation, apoptosis, autophagy, and invasion, as well as its(More)
In order to overcome the low utilization ratio of solar light and high electron-hole pair recombination rate of TiO2, the triangular Ag nanoparticle island is covered on the surface of the TiO2 thin film. Enhancement of the photocatalytic activity of the Ag/TiO2 nanocomposite system is observed. The increase of electron-hole pair generation is caused by the(More)
Phosphorus (P) is one of the essential nutrient elements for plant development. In this work, BnPHR1 encoding a MYB transcription activator was isolated from Brassica napus. The characterization of nuclear localization and transcription activation ability suggest BnPHR1 is a transcriptional activator. The tissue expression and histochemical assay showed(More)
