Selenium and diabetes--evidence from animal studies.
Whereas selenium was found to act as an insulin mimic and to be antidiabetic in earlier studies, recent animal experiments and human trials have shown an unexpected risk of prolonged high Se intakeExpand

Selenium suppresses oxidative-stress-enhanced vascular smooth muscle cell calcification by inhibiting the activation of the PI3K/AKT and ERK signaling pathways and endoplasmic reticulum stress
Vascular calcification is a prominent feature of many diseases, including atherosclerosis, and it has emerged as a powerful predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. A number of studiesExpand

Magnetic EDTA-modified chitosan/SiO2/Fe3O4 adsorbent: Preparation, characterization, and application in heavy metal adsorption
Abstract The aim of this study was to develop a novel magnetic EDTA-modified chitosan/SiO 2 /Fe 3 O 4 adsorbent (EDCMS) for removal of heavy metals ions from aqueous solution. EDCMS was prepared byExpand

SelK is a novel ER stress-regulated protein and protects HepG2 cells from ER stress agent-induced apoptosis.
Selenoprotein K (SelK), an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) resident protein, its biological function has been less-well studied. To investigate the role of SelK in the ER stress response, effects of SelKExpand

Protective effect of polysaccharide from the loach on the in vitro and in vivo peroxidative damage of hepatocyte.
Misgurnus anguillicaudatus polysaccharide (MAP), a type of natural neutral polysaccharide occurring in the mucus of Misgurnus anguillicaudatus C., was studied for antioxidant bioactivity. TheExpand

Influence of SelS gene silence on beta-Mercaptoethanol-mediated endoplasmic reticulum stress and cell apoptosis in HepG2 cells.
Selenoprotein S (SelS), a transmembrane selenoprotein, may be related to the response of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. In this report, the influence of selenite supplementation and SelS geneExpand

Catalpol ameliorates high-fat diet-induced insulin resistance and adipose tissue inflammation by suppressing the JNK and NF-κB pathways.
Catalpol, a bioactive component from the root of Rehmannia glutinosa, has been shown to possess hypoglycemic effects in type 2 diabetic animal models, however, the underlying mechanisms remain poorlyExpand

Improvement in gas sensitivity of ZnO thick film to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by adding TiO2
Abstract A highly sensitive ZnO–TiO2 based thick film volatile organic compound (VOC) sensor had been developed. TiO2 was mixed in ZnO in various weight percentage (0%, 1%, 5% and 10%). The X-rayExpand

Selenium Protects Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Against Hydrogen Peroxide-Induced Inhibition of Osteoblastic Differentiation by Suppressing Oxidative Stress and ERK Signaling Pathway
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that leads to an increased risk of fracture. Oxidative stress may play a major role in the development of osteoporosis in part by inhibiting osteoblasticExpand
