OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), a major toxic component of cigarette smoke, on the expression of Slug and to determine the effect of B[a]P/Slug on the invasive properties of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS). METHOD The expression of Slug was measured by real-time PCR following the stimulation of(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of Tubastatin A, a selective histone deacetylase-6 inhibitor, on synovial inflammation and joint destruction in a collagen antibody-induced arthritis (CAIA) mouse model. METHODS Collagen antibody-induced arthritis mice were given daily intraperitoneal injections of various concentrations of Tubastatin A (0, 10, 50, 100(More)
