The aim of the present study was to examine the mechanisms through which fenofibrate inhibits the ability of human retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE cells) exposed to hypoxia to stimulate the proliferation and migration of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). For this purpose, RPE cells and HUVECs were divided into the following groups:(More)
A pair of new phenolic acid stereoisomers, (R)-norsalvianolic acid L (1) and (S)-norsalvianolic acid L (2), was isolated from the Danshen Injection (lyophilized powder). The structural elucidation and stereochemistry determination were achieved by spectroscopic and chemical methods including 1D, 2D NMR (1H-1H COSY, HSQC and HMBC) and circular dichroism(More)
Corpora cavernosum smooth muscle cells (CCSMCs) have been shown to play a critical role in the male erectile response and are involved in the pathogenesis of multiple causes of erectile dysfunction (ED). To investigate the underlying mechanisms, we studied the changes that CCSMCs undergo under hypoxic conditions in vitro. The identified and characterized(More)
