MicroRNA 181a (miR-181a) was found dysregulated in a variety of human cancers and significantly associated with clinical outcome of cancer patients. However, the direct role of miR-181a has not yet been characterized in osteosarcoma progression. This study was aimed at investigating the effects of miR-181a on osteosarcoma cell biological behavior. First,(More)
Hypoglycemic effects and the use of kelp in diabetes mellitus (DM) model rats induced by alloxan were investigated. Sixty healthy male rats were used to establish DM models by injecting alloxan intraperitoneally. Kelp powder was added to the general forage for the rats. The levels of fasting blood glucose (FBG) were determined by an automatic blood glucose(More)
The interaction of trypsin with tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) and ferulic acid (FA) was studied using fluorescence, synchronous fluorescence, UV-vis absorption, circular dichroism (CD) and three-dimensional (3D) fluorescence spectra techniques. Using fluorescence quenching calculations, the bimolecular quenching constant (kq), apparent quenching constant (KSV),(More)
BACKGROUND Lobed kudzuvine root and rhizoma chuanxiong are effective drugs in traditional Chinese medicine. OBJECTIVE Extracts of the two medicines were investigated for their in vitro of beta-amyloid (Aβ1-42)-aggregation-and acetylcholinesterase (AChE)-inhibitory activities. MATERIALS AND METHODS The interaction of lobed kudzuvine root, rhizoma(More)
In this article, 13 short chains that can form G-quadruplex and quadruplex-duplex motif have been designed. Fourteen oligonucleotides, including 13 short chains as well as a reference short chain all have certain level of inhibition to topoisomerase I, whether or not they form G-quadruplex and quadruplex-duplex motif, and the G-quadruplex and(More)
BACKGROUND Single-incision laparoscopy has recently become a popular procedure in pediatric surgery. The current series is the largest study to evaluate the operative complications and results of single-incision laparoscopic endorectal pull-through (SILEP) for the treatment of HD through a retrospective comparison with conventional laparoscopic endorectal(More)
A series of cationic porphyrins, and analogues such as cationic corroles and phthalocyanines were found to have biological activities towards topoisomerases I and II in vitro. Cationic porphyrins and phthalocyanines do not induce Topo I-DNA covalent complexes but inhibit topoisomerase I by direct binding to DNA, which limits topoisomerase I access to the(More)
A useful method for the synthesis of ortho-olefinated ketimines from readily accessible cyclic N-sulfonyl ketimines and various olefins has been achieved. The reactions proceeded by Rh(III)-catalyzed, N-sulfonyl ketimine-directed C-H cleavage under aerobic conditions. Further synthetic transformations of the olefinic products led to interesting heterocyclic(More)
A zinc(II) complex having planar tridentate ligand, bzimpy, where bzimpy is 2,6-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl) pyridine was synthesized and characterized by UV, NMR, infrared spectroscopy and fluorescence spectra. The zinc complex acts as dibasic acids, in which N-H protons on benzimidazole moieties are responsible for a deprotonation site. Both the absorption(More)
A useful approach is developed for the synthesis of various structurally interesting spirocyclic sultams and heterobiaryls using a cross-dehydrogenative coupling strategy that features high atom and step economy. This method employs [Cp*RhCl2]2 as a catalyst and N-sulfonylimine, a weak coordinating group, as an efficient directing group to assist C-H(More)
