SUMOylation has been shown to exert non-negligible influence on transcriptional factors and regulate genes expression by attuning their transcriptional activity. Myocyte-specific enhancer factor-2(MEF2) is a family of transcription factor and play a critical role in embryonic development. The transcriptional activity of MEF2A is highly repressed by(More)
It has been demonstrated that bone mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs) stimulate neurite outgrowth from dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons. The present in vitro study tested the hypothesis that BMSCs stimulate the neurite outgrowth from spinal neurons by secreting neurotrophic factors. Spinal neurons were cocultured with BMSCs, fibroblasts and control medium(More)
Post-translational modification of proteins by the small ubiquitin-like modifiers (SUMOs) has emerged as an important regulatory mechanism for alteration of protein activity, stability, and cellular localization. It has been reported that SUMOylation plays an important role in some activities of neuronal cells. However, the link between SUMOylation and(More)
Central neuroimmune activation contributes to the initiation and maintenance of neuropathic pain after nerve injury. The current study was aimed to examine the modulation of neuroimmune activation in the spinal cord by the alpha(2) adrenoceptor agonist, clonidine, in a rat model of neuropathic pain induced by partial sciatic nerve ligation (PSNL). Animals(More)
In-cylinder air flow is very important from the point of view of mixture formation and combustion. In this direction, intake chamber structure and piston crown shape play a very crucial role for in-cylinder air pattern of opposed-piston two-stroke (OP2S) engines. This study is concerned with the three-dimensional (3D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD)(More)
BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common malignant tumor observed in the populations of southern China and Southeast Asia. However, little is known about the effects of purinergic signal on the behavior of NPC cells. This study analyzed the effects of ATP on the growth and migration of NPC cells, and further investigated the potential(More)
Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) peels, as one of the most valuable by-products of the food industry, has attracted much attention due to its wide range of bioactivities. In this study, the potential anticancer effect of a polysaccharide from pomegranate peels (PPP) on human osteosarcoma cancer cells was investigated. PPP was found to induce the arrest of(More)
The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the effectiveness of combination of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) with that of RFA alone in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Randomized controlled trials comparing RFA plus TACE with RFA alone for HCC were included into this meta-analysis, and the search(More)
The trigeminal ganglion (TG) can express and release calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), an important neuropeptide that plays a crucial role in migraine attack and cluster headache. Activation of rat TG increases CGRP expression. However, the regulatory mechanism of CGRP expression in TG neurons remains to be explored. This study aims to evaluate the(More)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of clonidine on bilateral pain behaviors and inflammatory responses in neuropathic pain induced by partial sciatic nerve ligation (PSNL), and to better understand whether the antinociception of clonidine was related to α(2)-adrenoceptor mechanisms. Rats were divided randomly into five groups:(More)
