PURPOSE TNF and IL-1 increase matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3) expression in the trabecular meshwork (TM). TNF-alpha, in combination with IL-1alpha or IL-1beta, produces highly synergistic MMP-3 increases. Possible mechanisms for this synergism in TM cells were investigated. METHODS Porcine and human TM cells were treated with TNF-alpha, IL-1alpha,(More)
PURPOSE The cytokines TNF and IL-1 mediate the MMP-3 increase that occurs in response to trabecular meshwork (TM) treatment by laser trabeculoplasty. This MMP-3 increase appears to play a key role in the efficacy of this treatment for open-angle glaucoma. Protein kinase Cmu and the Erk mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases are essential signaling(More)
PURPOSE Increased expression of stromelysin-1 (matrix metalloproteinase [MMP]-3) by the trabecular meshwork (TM) initiates extracellular matrix turnover and increases aqueous humor outflow facility. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)alpha and interleukin (IL)-1alpha are efficacious inducers of MMP-3 in TM. To facilitate understanding of the regulation of MMP-3,(More)
A novel Schiff base containing huge azo conjugated system and reactive groups, 3,5-bis{2-hydroxyphenyl-5-[(2-sulfate-4-sulfatoethylsulfonyl-azobenzol)methylene amino]}benzoic acid (BHSABA) was applied to modify cellulose. Exhaustion and grafting reactive rate, and grafting quantity of BHSABA on cellulose were calculated. The chemical structure of the(More)
The functional nano-hybrid surface containing multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) on chitosan incorporated with the cationic chitosan (C-CS), MWCNTs and silicon couple agent (KH-560) was designed and prepared. The nano-hybrid membranes (NHM) containing MWCNTs were modified by perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride (PFOSF). The superhydrophobic multi-functional(More)
High-efficiency and recyclable three-dimensional bioadsorbents were prepared by incorporating cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) as reinforcements in keratin sponge matrix to remove dyes from aqueous solution. Adsorption performance of dyes by CNC-reinforced keratin bioadsorbent was improved significantly as a result of adding CNC as filler. Batch adsorption(More)
