Celahypodiol 1, an unusual 17-membered carbon diterpenoid with a novel skeleton, and a new triterpenoid 12-oleanene-3beta,6alpha-diol 2, together with four known compounds furreginol 3, suigol 4, 20(30)-lupene-3beta, 29-diol 5, and 20(29)-lupene-1beta,3beta-diol 6, were isolated from the stalks of Celastrus hypoleucus (Oliv.) Warb. Their structures were(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of salvianolic acid B (Sal-B) on pancreatic damage in experimental chronic pancreatitis. METHODS Chronic pancreatitis was induced by infusion of trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid into the pancreatic duct in male Sprague-Dawley rats. From the beginning of 5 weeks, the rats in group 2 were treated with Sal-B by gavage for 8(More)
Pancreatic cancer is one of the more common cancers with a poor prognosis. Some varieties of cancer are related to virus infection. As a virus-induced protein, APOBEC3G (A3G) presents extensive anti-virus ability, but the role of A3G in pancreatic cancer was previously unknown. The expression of A3G in pancreatic cancer was examined using TaqMan real-time(More)
AIM To compare the features of biochemical metabolic changes detected by hepatic phosphorus-31 magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31)P MRS) with the liver damage score (LDS) and pathologic changes in rabbits and to investigate the diagnostic value of (31)P MRS in acute hepatic radiation injury. METHODS A total of 30 rabbits received different radiation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of novel triterpene (12-oleanene-3beta, 6alpha-diol) from Celastrus hypoleucus on the proliferation and apoptosis of human colorectal cancer cell line RKO. METHOD The inhibitory effect of the novel triterpene on RKO cell proliferation was assayed by MTT dye reduction. The morphology of apoptotic cells was observed with(More)
Cancer Stem-like Cells (CSCs) are a subpopulation of cancer cells with self-renewal capacity and are important for the initiation, progression and recurrence of cancer diseases. The metabolic profile of CSCs is consistent with their stem-like properties. Studies have indicated that enzymes, the main regulators of cellular metabolism, dictate functionalities(More)
