The purpose of this study was to analyze phytotoxicity mechanism involved in root growth and to compare physiological changes in the leaves of wheat seedlings exposed to short term iron (Fe) and copper (Cu) stresses (0, 100, 300 and 500μM). All applied Fe or Cu concentrations reduced root and shoot lengths, but seed germination was inhibited by Cu only at(More)
Matrine has potent antitumor activity against a broad variety of cancer cells and our previous study showed that both autophagy and apoptosis were activated during matrine-induced gastric cancer cell death. The aim of the present study was to determine the significance of autophagy in antineoplastic effects of matrine and the molecular mechanism by which(More)
This study aimed to investigate the inhibitory mechanism of root growth and to compare antioxidative responses in two wheat cultivars, drought-tolerant Ningchun and drought-sensitive Xihan, exposed to different NaCl concentrations. Ningchun exhibited lower germination rate, seedling growth, and lipid peroxidation than Xihan when exposed to salinity. The(More)
In order to enhance the drug entrapment efficiency and improve the swelling behaviors of drug delivery system, Ca2+ crosslinking and freeze-thawing (FT) cycle techniques were used to prepare sodium alginate/poly(vinyl alcohol) (SA/PVA) hydrogel beads. The mixture solution of SA and PVA was firstly crosslinked with Ca2+ to form beads and then subjected to(More)
In the present study, an atypical case of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in a 32-year-old male was reported. CML cases with e13a3 breakpoint cluster region (BCR)-ABL transcripts are extremely rare. Reverse transcription quantitative‑polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) was initially negative due to the primer corresponding to ABL a2 sequences and diagnosis(More)
Growth inhibition and antioxidative response were investigated in wheat roots cultured in 1/4 Hoagland solution containing zinc (Zn, 500 μM), iron (Fe, 300 μM), and copper (Cu, 300 μM) in combination. Different Zn, Fe, and Cu interactions inhibited seedling growth and increased Zn, Fe, and Cu contents in roots and shoots, with the most significant(More)
Very long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (VLCPUFAs), especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5∆5,8,11,14,17) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6∆4,7,10,13,16,19) have demonstrated important roles in a number of aspects of human health. Currently, our primary dietary sources for these fatty acids are from marine fish. Producing VLCPUFAs in oilseed crop(More)
A series of aminoglucoglycerolipids derivatives had been synthesized, including 6'-acylamido-glucoglycerolipids 1a-1f and corresponding 2'-acylamido-glucoglycerolipids 2a-2c bearing different fatty acids, glucosyl diglycerides 3a-3e bearing different functional groups at C-6' and ether-linked glucoglycerolipids 4a-4c with double-tailed alkyl alcohol. The(More)
The soluble urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) and the urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) have been proposed as useful biomarkers of tumor progression. Recently, suPAR was associated with chemoresistance in lung cancer. However, its clinical significance in leukemia has not previously been investigated. The present study(More)
