A rapid method was developed to quantify diosgenin in Rhizoma Dioscoreae Zingiberensis. For the first time, sample solution was prepared by coupling pretreatment of raw material in cellulase and two-phase acid hydrolysis. After reconstitution, analysis was carried out on a C18 column, at 30°C, with acetonitrile and water (70:30, v/v) as mobile phase with(More)
Ardisia violacea is one of the rare and endangered species, and distributes only in Zhejiang and Taiwan Provinces in China. In order to understand the light requirement and adaptability of A. violacea, the effects of different light intensities (shading rate of 90%, 60%, 25%, and the full light) on leaf photosynthetic characteristics and chlorophyll(More)
The study was aimed to investigate the mechanism of proliferation inhibition and apoptosis of MDS-RAEB MUTZ-1 cells induced by 2-methoxyestradiol (2-ME), the cell proliferation was determined by MTT assay, apoptosis rate was determined with annexinV-FITC/PI double staining and cell cycle was analyzed by flow cytometry (FCM) after MUTZ-1 cells were treated(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the tumor suppression efficacy of a histone deacetylase inhibitor, sodium valproate combined with adriamycin in the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome cell line MUTZ-1. After treated with different concentrations of sodium valproate alone, adriamycin alone or combination of them, growth curve of MUTZ-1 cell line(More)
This study was aimed to explore the potential therapy of Gambogic acid (GA) combined with magnetic nanoparticle of Fe3O4 (Fe3O4-MNP) on leukemia. The proliferation of U937 cells and the cytotoxicity were evaluated by MTT assay. Cell apoptosis was observed and analyzed by microscopy and flow cytometry respectively. The expressions of gene and protein were(More)
To explore whether the magnetic nanoparticles of Fe3O4 (MNPs-Fe3O4) loaded with cisplatin can reverse the diaminedichloro platinum (DDP) resistance to multidrug resistance of ovarian carcinoma cells and to investigate its mechanisms. The SKOV3/DDP cells were divided into DDP treatment (DDP group), MNPs-Fe3O4 treatment (MNPs-Fe3O4 group), DDP + MNPs-Fe3O4(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle to cancer chemotherapy. We evaluated the effect of daunorubicin (DNR)-loaded magnetic nanoparticles of Fe3O4 (MNPs-Fe3O4) on K562-n/VCR cells in vivo. K562-n and its MDR counterpart K562-n/VCR cell were inoculated into nude mice subcutaneously. The mice were randomly divided into four groups: group A received(More)
BACKGROUND The cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C)-based chemotherapy is the major remedial measure for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Deoxycytidine kinase (DCK) and cytidine deaminase (CDA) are the key enzymes in the metabolism of Ara-C. Many single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes of DCK and CDA, which contribute to susceptibility to Ara-C, have(More)
In many instances, multidrug resistance (MDR) is mediated by increasing the expression at the cell surface of the MDR1 gene product, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), a 170-kD energy-dependent efflux pump. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential benefit of combination therapy with magnetic Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticle [MNP (Fe(3)O(4))] and MDR1 shRNA(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Research has shown that 5-bromotetrandrine (BrTet) can effectively reverse multidrug resistance (MDR). Imatinib plays an important role in cell proliferation. This study explored the efficacy of the combination of imatinib and BrTet on reversing MDR of tumor cells and its mechanism. METHODS Cytoxicity was assessed by MTT assay.(More)
