Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable plasma cell malignancy with a terminal phase marked by increased proliferation and resistance to therapy. Arsenic trioxide (ATO), an antitumor agent with a multifaceted mechanism of action, displayed clinical activity in patients with late-stage multiple myeloma. However, the precise mechanism(s) of action of ATO has(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) pattern for proteome analysis on K562 cells before and after treatment with 6-gingerol, and mass-spectrometry was applied to identify and analyze the differentially expressed proteins. METHODS K562 cells were treated with 6-gingerol. Cell proliferation was analyzed by CCK-8 assay. Total protein(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of 6-gingerol on reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondrial membrane potential(deltapsim) of chronic myeloid leukemia K562 cells and human acute T lymphoblastic leukemia MOLT4 cells, to investigate the role of mitochondrial pathway in the signal transduction of leukemia cell. METHODS With different concentrations of(More)
To clarify the molecular mechanisms that participate in the formation of multiple myeloma (MM) and to detect any tumor-related biomarkers, we performed proteomic analysis of cellular protein extracts from MM cells and normal plasma cells. Plasma cells from nine patients with newly diagnosed MM and nine healthy donors were purified by using anti-CD138 based(More)
The therapeutic efficacy of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) for the treatment of hypoxic-ischemic diseases is closely related to level of hypoxia in the damaged tissues. To elucidate the potential therapeutic applications and limitations of hMSCs derived from human umbilical cords, the effects of hypoxia on the morphology and proliferation of hMSCs(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant disorder of differentiated B cells. Clonal expansion of the tumor results in the excessive production of monoclonal immunoglobulin (Ig) which is a diagnostic feature of this disease. Previous investigations have demonstrated the alteration of the ERK, jun kinase, STAT, and AKT kinase signaling cascades in MM cells,(More)
Cigarette smoking is known to have negative effects on tissue repair and healing. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of nicotine in human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). After nicotine treatment, MSCs became pyknotic, vacuoles appeared in the cytoplasm and nucleus, and the nuclear boundary became fuzzy as observed using atomic(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the effects of decitabine (DAC) on proliferation and apoptosis of leukemia NB4 and K562 cells. The proliferation inhibition of DAC on NB4 and K562 cells was detected by Trypan blue staining. After treatment of DAC at different concentrations, the changes of cell cycle and CD11b expression was determined by flow cytometry.(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the differential proteomics in human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) induced by chemical hypoxia-mimetic agent cobalt chloride (CoCl(2)) by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) and mass-spectrometry. METHODS 2-DE was performed to separate proteins from treated and untreated human umbilical cord MSC with CoCl(2). 2-DE(More)
This thesis aims to examine the effects of the systemic immune response triggered by the transurethral enucleation and resection of the prostate (TRERP). 60 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were randomly classified into enucleation group and resection group. The level of WBC, serum IL-6, IL-8, CRP, IgG, IgA, IgM, CD4+, CD8+,and ratio of CD4+(More)
