Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common malignant brain tumor and exhibits aggressive and invasive behavior. We previously identified four miRNAs-miR-29b, 494, 193a-3p, and 30e-with enhanced expression in GBM following treatment of ionizing radiation by miRNA microarray analysis. In this study, we found that only miR-29b inhibited tumor cell(More)
Using a ChIP-cloning technique, we identified a Zinc finger protein 804a (Zfp804a) as one of the putative Hoxc8 downstream target genes. We confirmed binding of Hoxc8 to an intronic region of Zfp804a by ChIP-PCR in F9 cells as well as in mouse embryos. Hoxc8 upregulated Zfp804a mRNA levels and augmented minimal promoter activity in vitro. In E11.5 mouse(More)
Nine Virginia soybeans grown in a single location were evaluated and compared for their antioxidant properties and isoflavone profiles. The total phenolic content (TPC) in the soybean extracts was significantly different among different genotypes. The V01-4937, V03-1144, and MFS-511 soybeans had the highest TPC values of 3.89, 3.63, and 3.53 mg of gallic(More)
Hoxc8 is a member of Hox family transcription factors that play crucial roles in spatiotemporal body patterning during embryogenesis. Hox proteins contain a conserved 61 amino acid homeodomain, which is responsible for recognition and binding of the proteins onto Hox-specific DNA binding motifs and regulates expression of their target genes. Previously,(More)
RATIONALE Increased arginine-vasopressin (AVP) secretion is a key physiological response to hyperosmotic stress and may be part of the mechanism by which high-salt diets induce or exacerbate hypertension. OBJECTIVE Using deoxycorticosterone acetate-salt hypertension model rats, we sought to test the hypothesis that changes in GABA(A) receptor-mediated(More)
Histone deacetylase (HDAC) is an attractive target for cancer therapy because it plays a key role in gene expression and carcinogenesis. N-hydroxy-7-(2-naphthylthio) heptanomide (HNHA) is a novel synthetic HDAC inhibitor (HDACI) that shows better pharmacological properties than a known HDACI present in the human fibrosarcoma cell: suberoylanilide hydroxamic(More)
Lichtheimia ramosa is one of the predominant filamentous fungi in Korean traditional nuruk. The nonvolatile and volatile metabolites of L. ramosa cultivated in three growth media: complete medium (CM), potato dextrose broth (PDB), and sabouraud dextrose broth (SDB), were investigated and compared. Among nonvolatile metabolites, serine, lysine, and ornithine(More)
Effects of photosensitizers including riboflavin, chlorophyll b, or methylene blue on the stability of daidzein and genistein were studied in model systems by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Concentration of daidzein and genistein in 80% methanol with riboflavin under light for 7 h was significantly decreased with the apparent 1st-order rate(More)
Hoxc8 is a homeobox gene family member, which is essential for growth and differentiation. Mgl1, a mouse homologue of the Drosophila tumor suppressor gene lgl, was previously identified as a possible target of Hoxc8. However, the biological effects and underlying molecular mechanism of Hoxc8 regulation on Mgl1 has not been fully established. The endogenous(More)
Three extraction strategies including Soxhlet extraction, conventional solid-liquid extraction, and ultrasonic-assisted extraction (UAE) were compared for their efficiency to extract phenolic antioxidants from Virginia-grown soybean seeds. Five extraction solvents were evaluated in UAE and the conventional extraction. The soybean extracts were compared for(More)
