The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects and its possible underlying mechanisms of vitexin on myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in isolated rat hearts. Isolated rat hearts were perfused with Langendorff apparatus, which subjected to 30 min ischemia and then followed by 60 min reperfusion. In the isolated rat heart subjected to(More)
BACKGROUND The signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling pathway plays important roles in oncogenesis, angiogenesis, immunity, and tumor cell invasion. In the present study, we investigated the association of interleukin (IL)-6/STAT3 signaling pathway with T lymphocytes and clinical implication in patients with gastric cancer.(More)
This study was aimed at investigating the protective effect and mechanism of vitexin preconditioning (VPC) on cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes after anoxia and reoxygenation (A/R). An A/R model was established by using cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes. Cellular injury was evaluated by measuring cell viability, the releases of creatine kinase (CK),(More)
This study was conducted to demonstrate myocardial protective effects and possible underlying mechanisms of vitexin on myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. Occluding the anterior descending artery for 30 min and restoring blood perfusion for 60 min in rat established a model of myocardial I/R. The elevation of the ST segment of(More)
Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are cation channels which were activated by extracellular acidosis and involved in various physiological and pathological processes in the nervous system. Inflammasome is a key component of the innate immune response in host against harmful and irritable stimuli. As the first discovered molecular platform, NLRP1(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the mechanism of protective effect of Fagopyrum cymosum on lung injury induced by Klebsiella pneumonia in rats. METHODS The model of rats with Klebsiella pneumonia was established. The male SD rats were randomly divided into control group, model group, Fagopyrum cymosum (6, 3, 1.5 g/kg) three groups, levofloxacin (25 mg/kg) group. The(More)
AIMS This study was aimed to determine whether microRNA1 (miR1) plays a role in the activation of myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) mediated by oxLDL in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). MAIN METHODS HUVECs were treated with oxLDL along with a control miR or miR1 mimic. MiR1 expression was assayed by miRNA plate assay kit and mirVana™ miRNA(More)
Abuse and dependence to heroin has evolved into a global epidemic as a significant clinical and societal problem with devastating consequences. Repeated exposure to heroin can induce long-lasting behavioral sensitization and withdrawal. Pharmacological activation of 5-HT2C receptors (5-HT2CRs) suppresses psychostimulant-induced drug-seeking and behavioral(More)
Opioid abuse and dependence have evolved into an international epidemic as a significant clinical and societal problem with devastating consequences. Repeated exposure to the opioid, for example morphine, can induce profound, long-lasting behavioral sensitization and physical dependence, which are thought to reflect neuroplasticity in neural circuitry.(More)
AIM To investigate the effects and possible mechanisms of Wy14643 on hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. METHODS Thirty male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 220-280 g were randomly divided into five experimental groups: sham group (G1, n=6): a sham operation was performed (except for liver I/R); I/R-untreated group (G2, n=6): rats underwent(More)
