AIM To study the antitumor action of elemene (Ele) and its mechanism. METHODS Inhibition of proliferation was measured with a colorimetric 3-[4,5-dimethyl thiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Morphological assessment of apoptosis was performed with fluorescence microscope. DNA fragmentation was assessed by agarose gel electrophoresis(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect that a dietary intake of resveratrol (RSV) had on the expression of glutamate cysteine ligase (GCL) in the kidneys of aged rats. Young, middle-aged and aged rats were each randomly divided into two groups. The control groups were fed a controlled diet and the experimental groups received a controlled(More)
It is well known that immune response decreases with aging. Salidroside (SDS), an antioxidant component isolated from the traditional Chinese medicine roseroot Rhodiola rosea, has been demonstrated to possess potent anti-aging and health-promoting activities. However, the mechanism underlying these activities is poorly understood. In this study, we clearly(More)
Oxidative stress has been linked to the progression of mutations and cancer. Increased glutathione (GSH) contents have been observed in a number of different human cancer tissues. GSH is synthesized de novo in a two-step process catalyzed by glutamate cysteine ligase (GCL). The present study aimed to investigate whether GCL was associated with renal cell(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between the levels of lipids and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients with heart failure (HF). A total of 46 patients with active SLE and 40 healthy, age-matched control subjects were studied. BNP was measured by an immunofluorescence assay in fresh(More)
It is well known that immune response declines with aging. Resveratrol, a polyphenol that occurs naturally in several plant species including grapevines and berries, has been shown to have potent antiaging and health-promoting activities. However, the mechanism underlying these activities remains largely unknown. Here we clearly demonstrate that: (1)(More)
Reductions in glutathione (GSH) levels have been shown to be associated with aging and the pathogenesis of a variety of diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Glutamate cysteine ligase (GCL) catalyzes the first and rate-limiting step of GSH synthesis. In order to appraise the correlation between oxidative stress and the severity and(More)
The tumor necrosis factor α-induced protein-3 (TNFAIP3) gene functions in negative immunoregulation and its single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease. However, its expression level in immune cells from RA patients remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the expression of(More)
