Although bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) may be beneficial in treating heart disease, their ability to transdifferentiate into functional cardiomyocytes remains unclear. Here, bone marrow-derived MSCs from adult female transgenic mice expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP) under the control of the cardiac-specific alpha-myosin heavy(More)
Recent research has revealed that the maternal non-coding RNA genes (Gtl2, Rian and Mirg) from the Dlk1-Dio3 imprinted cluster are closely related to the full development potential of the induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Transcriptional silencing of these genes failed to generate all-iPSC mice, indicating their significant contribution to(More)
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) Meg8 and Irm were previously identified as alternatively splicing isoforms of Rian gene. Ascertaining ncRNAs spatiotemporal expression patterns is crucial for understanding the physiological roles of ncRNAs during tissue and organ development. In this study in mouse embryos, we focused on the developmental regulation expression of(More)
Resveratrol (Rev) can ameliorate cytotoxic chemotherapy-induced toxicity and oxidative stress. Arsenic trioxide (As2O3) is a known cytotoxic environmental toxicant and a potent chemotherapeutic agent. However, the mechanisms by which resveratrol protects the liver against the cytotoxic effects of As2O3 are not known. Therefore, in the present study we(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To develop an optimal scanning protocol for multislice spiral CT perfusion (CTP) imaging to evaluate hemodynamic changes in liver cirrhosis with diethylnitrosamine- (DEN-) induced precancerous lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into the control group (n = 80) and the precancerous liver cirrhosis(More)
Arsenic trioxide (As2O3) is both the most prevalent, naturally occurring inorganic arsenical threatening human health and an efficient therapeutic for acute promyelocytic leukemia. Regretfully, As2O3-treated cancer patients often suffer from hepatotoxicity. While effective antioxidant and anticarcinogenic actions of allicin have previously been(More)
BACKGROUD/OBEJECTIVES Arsenic, which causes human carcinogenicity, is ubiquitous in the environment. This study was designed to evaluate modulation of arsenic induced cancer by resveratrol, a phytoalexin found in vegetal dietary sources that has antioxidant and chemopreventive properties, in arsenic trioxide (As2O3)-induced Male Wistar rats.
