OBJECTIVE Using a mouse model, Iron Overload (IO) induced bone marrow microenvironment injury was investigated, focusing on the involvement of reactive oxygen species (ROS). METHODS Mice were intraperitoneally injected with iron dextran (12.5, 25, or 50 mg) every three days for two, four, and six week durations. Deferasirox(DFX)125 mg/ml and… (More)
Iron overload, caused by hereditary hemochromatosis or repeated blood transfusions in some diseases, such as beta thalassemia, bone marrow failure and myelodysplastic syndrome, can significantly induce injured bone marrow (BM) function as well as parenchyma organ dysfunctions. However, the effect of iron overload and its mechanism remain elusive. In this… (More)
Functions of miR-200a in GLA-induced attenuation of the invasive capacities in MDA-MB-231 cells.
Current treatments for breast cancer, a common malignancy in human females, are less than satisfactory because of high rates of metastasis. Glabridin (GLA), which acts through the FAK/ROS signaling pathway, has been used as an antioxidant and anti-metastatic agent. However, little is known regarding the effect of microRNA (miRNA) on GLA's anti-metastatic… (More)
