Myrothecium verrucaria bilirubin oxidase expressed in Aspergillus oryzae is in a resting form different from that of the authentic bilirubin oxidase, but reaches the resting form of the authentic enzyme after one cycle of reduction and reoxidation with dioxygen as shown by the absorption and electron paramagnetic resonance spectra.
A novel colorimetric immunoassay for highly sensitive detection of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), one of the leading causes of severe lower respiratory tract infections in all age groups, has been proposed based on Hg(2+)-stimulated peroxidase-like activity of gold nanoparticles-graphene oxide (AuNPs-GO) hybrids. This metal ion-enhanced immunoassay(More)
TRPV4, one of the TRP channels, is implicated in diverse physiological and pathological processes including cell proliferation. However, the role of TRPV4 in liver fibrosis is largely unknown. Here, we characterized the role of TRPV4 in regulating HSC-T6 cell proliferation. TRPV4 mRNA and protein were measured by RT-PCR and Western blot in patients and rat(More)
The major challenge of prion disease diagnosis at the presymptomatic stage is how to sensitively or selectively discriminate and detect the minute quantity of disease-associated prion protein isoform (PrP(Res)) in complex biological systems such as serum and brain homogenate. In this contribution, we developed a dual-aptamer strategy by taking the(More)
Ischemic stroke is a devastating complication of bone fracture. Bone fracture shortly after stroke enhances stroke injury by augmenting inflammation. We hypothesize that bone fracture shortly before ischemic stroke also exacerbates ischemic cerebral injury. Tibia fracture was performed 6 or 24 hours before permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (pMCAO)(More)
Hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1α) is a regulated subunit of the hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF1), which functions as a key transcription factor in response to hypoxic stress by regulating genes involved in maintaining oxygen homeostasis. In recent years, a growing body of studies showed that HIF-1α was significantly increased in hepatic fibrotic(More)
Mitochondrial morphology is dynamically remodeled by fusion and fission in cells, and dysregulation of this process is closely implicated in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanism by which mitochondrial dynamics influence cancer cell survival is considerably less clear, especially in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study, we systematically(More)
INTRODUCTION Antiarrhythmia agents have been used in the treatment of cardiac arrest, and we aimed to review the relevant clinical controlled trials to assess the effects of antiarrhythmics during cardiopulmonary resuscitation. METHODS We searched databases including Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials; MEDLINE, and EMBASE. Clinical controlled(More)
This study aimed to investigate the role in metastasis and prognostic value of KAP-1 in pancreatic cancer (PC). The expression of KAP-1 was analyzed by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, Western blotting, and immunohistochemical staining in 91 human PC tissue samples. Capan-2 cells were transfected with a lentiviral vector expressing KAP-1(More)
