It has been reported that the phosphorylated form of histone variant H2AX (gammaH2AX) plays an important role in the recruitment of DNA repair and checkpoint proteins to sites of DNA damage, particularly at double strand breaks (DSBs). Using gammaH2AX foci formation as an indicator for DNA damage, several chemicals/stress factors were chosen to assess their(More)
Comet assay is a useful technique in the detection of DNA damages, particularly DNA strand breaks; and it has been utilized to show that a potent carcinogen N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG), can induce such damages. Recently, gammaH2AX foci formation has been suggested as another sensitive way to detect DNA double strand breaks (DSBs). However,(More)
Astilbin, a flavonoid compound was isolated from the rhizome of Smilax china L. In this study, we investigated the anti-myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury effect of Astilbin on diabetic rats in vivo and elucidated the potential mechanism in vitro. The results showed that Astilbin significantly attenuated hypoxia-induced cell injury in a(More)
AIM Our study was aimed to study the distributional characteristics of fibronectin (Fn) Msp iv polymorphism in Chinese Han Population and investigate its association with susceptibility and clinicopathologic features of diabetic nephropathy (DN). METHODS Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) were applied to(More)
INTRODUCTION Chemokine ligand 5, also known as CCL5 or regulated on activation normal T-cell expressed and secreted (RANTES), is a chemokine expressed in inflamed tissue and capable of inducing migration of immature dendritic cells (DCs) or Langerhans cells. In this study, we explored the effect of RANTES on EG7 cells. MATERIAL AND METHODS In vivo, RANTES(More)
