Poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase (PARG) is the primary enzyme responsible for the degradation of poly(ADP-ribose). PARG dysfunction sensitizes cells to alkylating agents and induces cell death; however, the details of this effect have not been fully elucidated. Here, we investigated the mechanism by which PARG deficiency leads to cell death in different cell(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients in remission often experience irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-like symptoms. We investigated the mechanism for intestinal muscle hypercontractility seen in T-cell-induced enteropathy in recovery phase. METHODS BALB/c mice were treated with an anti-CD3 antibody (100 microg per mouse) and euthanized at(More)
The risk of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis is considerably increased in statin users with end-stage renal failure (ESRF). Uremic toxins, which accumulate in patients with ESRF, exert cytotoxic effects that are mediated by various mechanisms. Therefore, accumulation of uremic toxins might increase statin-induced cytotoxicity. The purpose of this study was to(More)
