We investigated whether Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent kinase II (CaMKII) and calcineurin (CaN) are involved in myocardial hypertrophy induced by tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). The cardiomyocytes of neonatal Wistar rats (1-2 days old) were cultured and stimulated by TNF-α (100 μg/L), and Ca2+ signal transduction was blocked by several antagonists, including(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To explore the expression of protein-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) in human gastric stromal tumor and its clinicopathological significance. METHODOLOGY The expression of PAR-2 was detected with immunohistochemisty, RT-PCR and Western blot in tumor tissue, peritumoral tissue and gastric normal tissue from 72 patients with gastric stromal(More)
Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) results in high mortality. This is partly because of early multiple organ dysfunction syndromes that are usually caused by systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Many studies have reported the beneficial effects of emodin against SAP with SIRS. However, the exact mechanism underlying the effect of emodin remains(More)
The complete genome sequence of a novel duck orthoreovirus, designated DRV strain TH11(DRV-TH11), was determined and characterized. The DRV-TH11 genome is comprised of 23,417 bp and its genome organization is more similar to that of avian orthoreoviruses (ARVs) of chicken origin than other reoviruses. The results of comparative sequence analysis and(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the expression of tissue factor pathway inhibitor-2 (TFPI-2) in gastric stromal tissue and its clinical significance. TFPI-2 expression was detected by immunohistochemical analysis, RT-PCR and western blotting in tumor, peritumoral and gastric normal tissues from 72 patients with gastric stromal tumors. The level of(More)

To investigate which calcium channels are involved in cardiac myocyte hypertrophy induced by TNF-α, cultured cardiomyocytes were treated with 100 μg/L TNF-α. In addition, three different calcium channel blockers (2-APB, ryanodine and nifedipine) were used, and the effects of each calcium channel blocker on cardiac hypertrophy induced by TNF-α were carefully(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether calcineurin (CaN) contribute to tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha)-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy. METHODS The protein content was assayed with lowry's method. The cardiomyocytes volumes were measured by computer photograph analysis system. The protein synthesis was assayed with [3H]-leucine incorporation method.(More)
