BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated that transplantation of adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC) can improve cardiac function in animal models of myocardial infarction (MI). However, the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effect are not fully understood. In this study, we characterized the paracrine effect of transplanted ADSC and investigated its(More)
BACKGROUND Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin9 (PCSK9) monoclonal antibody significantly reduces low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level in patients with hypercholesterolemia. The goal of this study was to review recently reported randomized controlled trials to investigate the therapeutic effects and safety of PCSK9 inhibitors. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) proliferation and migration, which are central in the development of vascular diseases, are regulated by numerous hormones and humoral factors. Activation of the insulin receptor stimulates VSMCs proliferation while dopamine receptors, via D1 and D3 receptors, inhibit the stimulatory effects of norepinephrine on VSMCs(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity plays an important role in the pathogenesis of hypertension. Renal dopamine D1-like receptor-mediated diuresis and natriuresis are impaired in the obese Zucker rat, an obesity-related hypertensive rat model. The role of arterial D1 receptors in the hypertension of obese Zucker rats is not clear. METHODS Plasma glucose and insulin(More)
To explore the relationship between CYP4F2 gene polymorphism and coronary heart disease (CHD) in a Chinese Han population. We selected 440 CHD patients and 440 control subjects to perform a case - control study. Four SNPs (rs2108622, rs3093100, rs3093105 and rs3093135) in CYP4F2 gene were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction - restriction fragment(More)
BACKGROUND Ion transport in the renal proximal tubule (RPT), which is increased in essential hypertension, is regulated by numerous hormones and humoral factors, including insulin and dopamine. Activation of dopamine receptor inhibits sodium reabsorption, whereas activation of insulin receptor increases sodium reabsorption in RPTs, and hyperinsulinemic(More)
Original Article The gene polymorphisms of insulin degrading enzyme (IDE) are associated with the risk of coronary heart disease in Chinese Han population Abstract: Objectives: Altered insulin degrading enzyme function leads to toxic amyloidand insulin aggregates, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. We hypothesized that gene polymorphisms of insulin(More)
The aim of the present study was to screen the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) associated with familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) and examine the changing patterns. The transcription profile of GSE18965 was obtained from the NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus database, including 12 FCHL samples and 12 control specimens. The DEGs were identified using a(More)
