BACKGROUND Our previous study demonstrated cytotoxicity of a crude extract from Patrinia heterophylla Bunge (PHEB). In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effects of isovaltrate acetoxyhydrin (IA) isolated from PHEB on the gastric cancer cell SGC-7901, in order to explore a potential treatment for gastric cancer. METHODS MTT assays were(More)
A supramolecular, polymer-dot-based ensemble has been developed for the ratiometric detection of lectins and targeted delivery of glycoprobes. Self-assembly between a blue-emitting polymer dot and a red-emitting glycoprobe, results in an ensemble that shows red emission upon excitation of the polymer dot because of Förster resonance energy transfer.(More)
Our previous findings suggest that sphingosine kinase 2 (SPK2) mediates ischemic tolerance and autophagy in cerebral preconditioning. The aim of this study was to determine by which mechanism SPK2 activates autophagy in neural cells. In both primary murine cortical neurons and HT22 hippocampal neuronal cells, overexpression of SPK2 increased LC3II and(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of acupuncture at "Feishu" (BL 13) and "Lingtai" (GV 10) on distribution taxis of paclitaxel in mice with lung cancer to discuss targeted relationship between acupoints and corresponding viscera. METHODS According to randomized digital table, 315 SPF-grade BALB/C female mice were divided into 7 groups: blank group (group(More)
Two single gene cassettes, each containing one of the individual gene (γ-glutamylcysteine synthetase gene GSH1 or glutathione synthetase gene GSH2), were constructed under the control of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH1) promoter and their respective native terminators. The recombinant plasmids constructed with Kan r or Hyg r as the selective markers and were(More)
Fighting metastasis is a major challenge in cancer therapy, and stimulation of the immune system is of particular importance in the treatment of metastatic cancers. Here, an integrated theranostic nanoplatform was developed for the efficient treatment of highly metastatic tumors. Versatile functions including "And" logically controlled drug release,(More)
A neutral selenium donor ligand, [CpFe(CO)(2)P(Se)(OR)(2)] is used for the construction of Cu(I) and Ag(I) complexes with a well-defined coordination environment. Four clusters [M{CpFe(CO)(2)P(Se)(OR)(2)}(3)](PF(6)), (where M = Cu, R = (n)Pr, ; R = (i)Pr, and M = Ag, R = (n)Pr, ; R = (i)Pr, ) are isolated from the reaction of [M(CH(3)CN)(4)(PF(6))] (where M(More)
By setting up sample transects and using alpha and beta diversity indices, this paper studied the woody plant diversity and its responses to cutting in the stream riparian primeval and secondary forests along an altitudinal gradient in Changbai Mountains. The results showed that all of the primeval forest communities distributed at different altitudes were(More)
