PSD (postsynaptic density)-95, a scaffold protein that tethers NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors to signal molecules, is implicated in pathological events resulting from excitotoxicity. The present study demonstrates that brain ischaemia and reperfusion increase the tyrosine phosphorylation of PSD-95 in the rat hippocampus. PP2, a specific inhibitor of(More)
Specific targeted therapy for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), which has high disability and case-fatality rate, is currently not available. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) generated from somatic cells of ICH patients have therapeutic potential for individualized cerebral protection. While, whether ICH patient-originated iPSCs could differentiate into(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the presence of metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) genes and the genetic environment of the New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase gene bla(NDM-1) in bacteria of food animal origin. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Gram-negative bacteria with low susceptibility to imipenem (MIC>8 µg/mL) were isolated from swab samples collected from 15 animal farms(More)
BACKGROUND Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major problem in successful treatment of cancers. Human ABCG2, a member of the ATP-binding cassette transporter superfamily, plays a key role in MDR and an important role in protecting cancer stem cells. Knockout of ABCG2 had no apparent adverse effect on the mice. Thus, ABCG2 is an ideal target for development of(More)
Human ABCG2, a member of the ATP-binding cassette transporter superfamily, plays a key role in multidrug resistance and protecting cancer stem cells. ABCG2-knockout had no apparent adverse effect on the development, biochemistry, and life of mice. Thus, ABCG2 is an interesting and promising target for development of chemo-sensitizing agents for better(More)
Transplantation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) has shown promising therapeutic effects for ischemic stroke. However, it is not clear if this treatment would promote recovery after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). In this study, we investigated the functional outcome of iPSCs transplantation in experimental ICH in rats. IPSCs were derived from an(More)
Activation of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) endows extraordinary invasive capability of cancer cells and causes of treatment failure and metastasis in gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST); however, the molecular mechanisms governing GIST invasion remain largely unknown. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to play critical roles in cell(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) has become one of the most economically important diseases to the global pork industry. Current vaccination strategies only provide a limited protective efficacy. In this study, a DNA vaccine, pVAX1©-α-γ-GP35, co-expressing GP3 and GP5 of PRRSV with interferon α/γ was constructed, and its immediate(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have recently emerged as vital players in tumor biology with potential value in cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutics. The lncRNA HULC (highly up-regulated in liver cancer) is increased in many malignancies, yet its serum expression profile and clinical value in gastric cancer (GC) patients remain unclear. Quantitative(More)
Global genomic hypomethylation is a hallmark of cancer in humans. In the present study, the feasibility of measuring hypomethylation of Alu elements (Alu) in serum and its clinical utility were investigated. Tumor tissues and matched serum specimens from 65 glioma patients and serum samples from 30 healthy controls were examined for Alu hypomethylation by(More)
