AIM To study the effects of genistein (GE) and quercetin (QU) on proliferation, collagen synthesis, and procollagen messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of rat hepatic stellate cell line HSC-T6 cells. METHODS Cell proliferation was measured by crystal violet staining assay. Collagen synthesis was determined by [3H]proline incorporation assay. Type I mRNA level(More)
AIM To study the antifibrotic effects of genistein (GE) and quercetin (QU) on rat hepatic stellate HSC-T6 cell proliferation stimulated with platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), collagen synthesis and type I procollagen messenger RNA (mRNA) expression stimulated with transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF beta 1). METHODS Cell proliferation was measured(More)
Folic acid-O-carboxymethyl chitosan ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (FA-OCMCS-USPIO-NPs) are a novel molecular targeting MR contrast agent. This paper reperts the pharmacokinetics and magnetic resonance response characteristics of FA-OCMCS-USPIO-NPs in normal rats and mice, and discussed its distributing regularity in animals,(More)
After cantharidin (0.75, 1.5 mg.kg-1) was given ip 3 times every other day in mice, Con A-induced spleen lymphocyte proliferation, as measured by [3H]TdR incorporation assay, was enhanced from 7,978 +/- 1,780 to 36,631 +/- 8,467 and 29,997 +/- 3,788 dpm in both doses. Interleukin-2 and interleukin-1 production were also increased from 11 +/- 4 to 52 +/- 18,(More)
Triptonide (Tri) extracted from Tripterygium wilfordii Hook inhibited the proliferation of mouse splenocytes induced by suboptimal concentration of concanavalin A or lipopolysaccharide at concentrations of 0.02, 0.1, and 0.5 microgram.ml-1. It showed a suppressive effect on one way mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) at 0.1-0.4 microgram.ml-1. The lymphocytes(More)
