Effects of four commonly used UV filters on the growth, cell viability and oxidative stress responses of the Tetrahymena thermophila.
UV filters are increasingly used in sunscreens and other personal care products. Although their residues have been widely identified in aquatic environment, little is known about the influences of UVExpand

Effects of triclosan and triclocarban on the growth inhibition, cell viability, genotoxicity and multixenobiotic resistance responses of Tetrahymena thermophila.
The information about adverse effects of emerging contaminants on aquatic protozoa is very scarce. The growth inhibition effect, cell viability, genotoxicity and multixenobiotic resistance (MXR)Expand

Emodin-mediated protection from acute myocardial infarction via inhibition of inflammation and apoptosis in local ischemic myocardium.
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with inflammation and apoptosis. Emodin plays an anti-inflammatory role in several inflammatory diseases. Recent studies have demonstrated that emodinExpand

C5aR-mediated myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury.
The complement system activation can mediate myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (I/R). Inhibition of C5a activity reveals attenuation of I/R-induced myocardial infarct size. However, theExpand

Estradiol improves cardiovascular function through up-regulation of SOD2 on vascular wall
Epidemiological studies have shown that estrogens have protective effects in cardiovascular diseases, even though the results from human clinical trials remain controversial, while most of the animalExpand

Betulinic acid‐mediated inhibitory effect on hepatitis B virus by suppression of manganese superoxide dismutase expression
The betulinic acid (BetA) purified from Pulsatilla chinensis (PC) has been found to have selective inhibitory effects on hepatitis B virus (HBV). In hepatocytes from HBV‐transgenic mice, we showedExpand
