Extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD, EC 1.15.1.1) is a major antioxidant enzyme that is located in the extracellular matrix and on the cell surface. EC-SOD protects against cell and tissue damage initiated by extracellular-produced reactive oxygen species (ROS). We investigated a major role of EC-SOD in the development of tumor formation. In this(More)
This study was conducted to examine the neuroprotective effects of acetone extracts from Viola mandshurica (VME). The effect of VME on hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2))-induced DNA damage in PC12 cells was evaluated by the comet assay where VME (100 and 250 microg/mL) was a dose-dependent inhibitor of DNA damage induced by 500 micromol/L of H(2)O(2). The(More)
Periodontal diseases are a group of infections that lead to inflammation of the gingiva, destruction of the periodontal tissues, and loss of alveolar bone with eventual exfoliation of teeth. A variety of bacterial species are associated with the onset and progression of periodontal disease. In particular, evidence implicating a pathogenic role of(More)
To access antitumor effects of a combined Granulocyte Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) and interleukin-18 (IL-18), cDNA fusion of murine GM-CSF and mature IL-18 (GMIL-18) was constructed and transfected in mammalian cells. GMIL-18 fusion protein was highly secreted and displayed bifunctional activities, possessing immune response initiation and(More)
We conducted a prospective study to target toxR in the blood of patients with skin and soft tissue infections who were admitted to four tertiary hospitals to assess the clinical usefulness of real-time quantitative PCR (Q-PCR) as a diagnostic technique. We performed conventional PCR (C-PCR), nested PCR (N-PCR), and Q-PCR assays and compared the results to(More)
