Helicobacter pylori infection leads to gastroduodenal inflammation, peptic ulceration and gastric carcinoma. Proteomic analysis of the human gastric mucosa from the patients with erosive gastritis, peptic ulcer or gastric cancer, which were either infected or not with H. pylori, was used to determine the differentially expressed proteins by H. pylori in the(More)
The present study aimed to investigate whether rebamipide, a novel antiulcer agent that has an oxygen radical scavenging activity, would inhibit lipid peroxidation, NF-κB activation, and IL-8 production by H. pylori. Human gastric epithelial cells (AGS and KATO III), treated with rebamipide or not were incubated in the absence or the presence of H. pylori.(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression is mediated by constitutive NF-kappaB and regulates human gastric cancer cell growth and proliferation. Inactivating Ku70 or Ku80 suppresses cell growth and induces apoptosis. It has been hypothesized that Ku70 and Ku80 expression may be associated with NF-kappaB activation and COX-2 expression and is involved in cell(More)
NADPH oxidase has been considered a major source of reactive oxygen species in phagocytic and non-phagocytic cells. Apoptosis linked to oxidative stress has been implicated in pancreatitis. Recently, we demonstrated that NADPH oxidase subunits Nox1, p27phox, p47phox, and p67phox are constitutively expressed in pancreatic acinar cells, which are activated by(More)
Oxygen radicals are important regulators in Helicobacter pylori-induced gastric ulceration and carcinogenesis. IL-8 may be regulated by oxidant-sensitive transcription factors, NF-κB, and AP-1. The present study aims to investigate whether H. pylori-induced IL-8 expression is regulated by NF-κB and AP-1 in gastric epithelial AGS cells and whether this(More)
NADPH oxidase is potentially associated with acute pancreatitis by producing reactive oxygen species (ROS). We investigated whether NADPH oxidase mediates the activation of Janus kinase (Jak)2/signal transducers and activators of transcription (Stat)3 and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) to induce the expression of transforming growth factor-β1(More)
The p50 subunit of NF-kappaB is a transcription factor that regulates the expression of a variety of genes. Previously, we showed that the expression of Ku antigen, a DNA repair protein, is mediated by NF-kappaB in gastric cancer AGS cells (Lim, J. W., Kim, H., and Kim, K. H. (2002) J. Biol. Chem. 277, 46093-46100). In this study, we report that the(More)
Gastric cancer, as well as inflammation, caused by Helicobacter pylori, activates the production of chemokines by activation of redox-sensitive transcription factor NF- κ B in gastric epithelial cells. Mitogen-activated protein kinases including extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and p38 kinase (p38) are activated by Helicobacter pylori, which may(More)
The present study aims at investigating the effects of mannitol and dimethylthiourea, known hydroxyl radical scavengers, on lipid peroxidation as an indicative of oxidative damage, NF-kappa B activation and IL-8 production by Helicobacter pylori in gastric epithelial cells. A human gastric epithelial cell line, AGS, treated with or without mannitol and(More)
Cell death linked to oxidative DNA damage has been implicated in acute pancreatitis. The severe DNA damage, which is beyond the capacity of the DNA repair proteins, triggers apoptosis. It has been hypothesized that oxidative stress may induce a decrease in the Ku70 and Ku80 levels and apoptosis in pancreatic acinar cells. In this study, it was found that(More)
