PURPOSE Korean red ginseng (KRG) is a potent antioxidant and a free radical scavenger. This study was designed to determine whether KRG could protect against dysfunction and oxidative stress induced by torsion-detorsion injury in rat testis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups: a sham-operated(More)
Bladder ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury results in the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and markedly elevates the risk of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Allopurinol is an inhibitor of xanthine oxidase (XO) and thus can serve as an antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress. Here, a rat model was used to assess the ability of allopurinol(More)
Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury represents an important cause of bladder contractile dysfunction. One of the major causes leading to this dysfunction is thought to be reactive oxygen species formation. In this study, we investigated the potential benefit of N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals, in a rat model of(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive primary brain tumor, and notorious for resistance to chemoradiotherapy. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are significantly involved in the initiation and progression of numerous cancers; however, the role of miRNAs in recurrence of tumors remains unknown. Here we tried to identify novel miRNAs that are differentially(More)
PURPOSE Most studies have reported the effects of short-term double-J ureteral stenting on patient symptoms. We reviewed the changes in symptoms and the factors associated with tolerance due to long-term stenting. MATERIALS AND METHODS We investigated 20 patients (mean age±SD, 58.3±11.8 years). The patients consisted of those with cervical cancer (n=12),(More)
We investigated effects of Neuregulin 1 (NRG1) on the expression of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) in major pelvic ganglion (MPG) from adult rat. MPG neurons were found to express transcripts for type I and III NRG1s as well as α and β-type epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains. Of the four ErbB receptor isoforms, ErbB1, ErbB2, and ErbB3 were(More)
Caspases, a family of cysteine proteases, cleave substrates and play significant roles in apoptosis, autophagy, and development. Recently, our group identified 72 genes that interact with Death Caspase-1 (DCP-1) proteins in Drosophila by genetic screening of 15,000 EP lines. However, the cellular functions and molecular mechanisms of the screened genes,(More)
