Epimedium (Berberidaceae), is a genus of about 52 species in the family Berberidaceae, which also known as Rowdy Lamb Herb, Xianlinpi, Barrenwort, Bishop's Hat, Fairy Wings, Horny Goat Weed, and Yangheye or Yin Yang Huo (Chinese: ). Many plants have been proven to possess efficacy on sexual dysfunction and osteoporosis in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of icariin on the osteogenic differentiation of rat bone marrow stromal cells (rBMSCs). METHOD rBMSCs were cultured by adherence screening method. Icariin was supplemented into the culture at 1 x 10(-5) mol x L(-1). The osteogenic differentiation markers including alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, CFU-F(ALP) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigated the effect of icariin and genistein on proliferation and mineralization of cultured rat osteoblasts (rat calvarial osteoblasts, ROB). And to contrast the pharmacological activity of icariin and genistein. METHOD Bone cells were obtained by enzyme digestion from the segregated neonatal SD rat skull, and were cultured in MEM(More)

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified to be critical mediators in various tumors associated with cancer progression. LncRNA SPRY4-IT1 serves as a novel prognostic biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the biological role and clinical significance of lncRNA SPRY4-IT1 in human ovarian cancer (OC) need to be completely elucidated. The(More)
A family of small non-coding RNAs, ~22 nt in length, known as microRNAs (miRNAs), regulating ~30% of all human gene expression, have been reported to be involved in the pathogenesis of a number of types of cancers, including laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). In the current study, miR-34a and miR-34c were observed to be downregulated in human LSCC(More)
BACKGROUND Rhododendron anthopogonoides Maxim, a kind of traditional Tibetan medicine, has been used to remove body heat, body detoxification, cough, asthma, stomachic and swelling, eliminate abundant phlegm and inflammatory for a long time. In the present study, the total phenols and total flavonoid contents as well as antioxidative properties of the crude(More)
Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a potent cytokine homodimer with multiple immunoregulatory functions. Here, we have characterized the effects of PEGylation and formation of human IL-10 (hIL-10)/humanized anti-human IL-10 (hαhIL-10) immune complexes in the pharmacokinetics, biodistribution, and biotransformation of IL-10 in mice. To assess the fate of native,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigated the effects of isopsoralen on bone marrow stromal stem cells (BMSCs) differentiate and proliferate in vitro. METHOD The stratum of mononuclear cells were separated and collected from the rat bone marrow sample by the all bone marrow cell culture methods. The cells were cultured in DMEM contained 10% fetal bovine serum. The(More)
Icariin, a prenylated flavonol glycoside isolated from the herb Epimedium, has been considered as a potential alternative therapy for osteoporosis. Previous research has shown that unlike other flavonoids, icariin is unlikely to act via the estrogen receptor, but its exact mechanism of action is unknown. In this study, using rat calvarial osteoblast culture(More)
