It is commonly accepted that epithelial-mesenchymal transition contributes to fibrotic remodeling, but the molecular pathways involved in paraquat (PQ)-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition remain uncharacterized. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential involvement of HIF-1α in TGF-β1/β-Catenin and Snail pathway after PQ poisoning. In(More)
BACKGROUND Ulinastatin (UTI) is a urinary trypsin inhibitor extracted and purified from urine of males. This study aimed to explore the effects of UTI on paraquat-induced-oxidative stress in human type II alveolar epithelial cells. METHODS The human type II alveolar epithelial cells, A549 cells, were cultured in vitro. The A549 cells were treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between pulmonary fibrosis and endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) in rats with paraquat poisoning. METHODS One hundred male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into control group (n=10) and paraquat poisoning group (n=90). The animals were sacrificed by exsanguination at 2, 6, 12, 24, 48, 72, 96, 168,(More)
