Circulating and podocyte-bound urokinase receptor (uPAR) is a mediator of podocyte injury, proteinuria, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) allowing pathological activation of the uPAR-β3 integrin signaling axis. Clinically, calcineurin inhibitors (e.g., cyclosporine A, CsA) are known to suppress T cells, yet are also being used to reduce(More)
Effects of colored noise near supercritical Hopf bifurcation, especially noise induced oscillation (NIO) and coherence resonance (CR), have been studied analytically in the Brusselator model, using the stochastic normal form method. Two types of colored noise are considered: one is the standard Gaussian colored noise generated by the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck (OU)(More)
Recently, the neuroprotective effects of lithium against excitotoxicity mediated by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors have been demonstrated. Since brain ischemia results in NMDA receptor over-excitation and Src family protein tyrosine kinase-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of NMDA receptor subunit 2A (NR2A) enhances NMDA receptor activity, we(More)
To exploit the biological and pharmacological properties of immunoglobulin constant domain Fc fragment and increase the killing efficacy of T cells, a single chain variable fragment specific to CD3 was fused with Fcab (Fc antigen binding), a mutant Fc fragment with specificity against Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) developed by F-star. The(More)
Our previous studies showed that prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) promotes hepatoma cell growth and migration, as well as invasion; however, the precise mechanism remains elusive. Snail and p65 protein levels were detected in human samples with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining. HCC cell lines (Huh-7 and Hep3B) were used for in(More)
Genetically modified T cells to recognize tumor-associated antigens by transgenic TCRs or chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) have been successfully applied in clinical trials. However, the disadvantages of either TCR mismatching or the requirement of a surface tumor antigen limit their wider applications in adoptive T cell therapy. A TCR-like chimeric(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are crucial for the induction and maintenance of tumor-specific immune responses. Studies have shown that tumor-associated DCs are immunosuppressed in some human tumors. However, phenotype and function of DCs in retinoblastoma (RB) remain unclear. RB cell supernatant (RBcs) was used to treat DCs in vitro to explore the effect of RB(More)
BACKGROUND Pant diseases in agriculture are extremely difficult to control, which bring about for billions of dollars in economic losses worldwide each year; Nicotinamide derivatives has attracted more and more attention in the field of pesticide due to their broad bioactivities. In an effort to discover new molecules with good antifungal activity, a series(More)
It has been indicated that Pyk2/Src signaling pathway is involved in modulation of N-methyl-D-aspartate-type (NMDA) glutamate receptor activity. Lithium protects against glutamate-induced excitotoxicity in cultured neurons and in animal models of diseases. The neuroprotection against excitotoxicity afforded by lithium is time-dependent, requiring treatment(More)
