Cellular senescence is an irreversible cell cycle arrest in which specific mRNAs and miRNAs are involved in senescence progression. miRNAs interact with specific mRNAs to regulate various cellular mechanisms, including metabolism, proliferation, apoptosis, senescence and differentiation. In this study, we identify and characterize miRNAs during cellular(More)
Recently, we reported that Alpinia katsumadai (AK) has anti-nociceptive activity in vivo and that cardamonin (CDN) from AK suppresses the activity and expression of transglutaminase-2 (Tgase-2). However, it remains unknown whether CDN contributes to the anti-nociceptive activities of AK in vivo. We examined the anti-inflammatory effects of CDN in MG63(More)
Cellular senescence is an irreversible cell cycle arrest that limits the replicative lifespan of cells. Senescence suppresses development of tumors by regulating aging factors, such as cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor (CKI) and telomerase. Suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) was used to identify genes that were differentially expressed between(More)
In addition to their differentiation potential, self-renewal capability is an important characteristic of stem cells. The limited self-renewal activity of mesenchymal stem cells is the greatest obstacle to the application of stem cell therapy in regenerative medicine. The human TERT gene enhances the self-renewal of MSCs, but the mechanism of self-renewal(More)
Trophoblasts, in the placenta, play a role for placental development as well as implantation in the early pregnancy. The characteristics and functions of trophoblast are identified by their localization and potency for proliferation, differentiation, and invasion. Thus, inadequate trophoblast cell death induces trophoblast dysfunction resulting in abnormal(More)
