Hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication is associated with endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and its infection triggers ER stress. In response to ER stress, ER overload response (EOR) can be activated, which involves the release of Ca2+ from ER, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and activation of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB). We have previously reported that(More)
Oxidative stress induces the activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3), which plays an important role in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We have previously reported that hepatitis C virus (HCV) and its protein NS4B induce the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) via the endoplasmic reticulum overload response (EOR) in(More)
The role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in Japanese encephalitis is largely unknown. In this study, we found that Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) strain SA14-14-2 regulates the expression of glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78), transcription factor 4 (ATF4) and C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP), and splicing of X-box-binding protein 1 (XBP1) mRNA in(More)
OBJECTIVES MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small non-coding RNAs that regulate proteins and mRNAs for degradation or translational suppression. Up to now, the role of miR-372 in renal cell carcinoma has remained unknown; in this study, we have aimed to reveal its functional importance in this tumour. MATERIALS AND METHODS qRT-PCR was performed to(More)
The NS5B polymerase is one of the most attractive targets for developing new drugs to block Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We describe the discovery of novel potent HCV NS5B polymerase inhibitors by employing a virtual screening (VS) approach, which is based on random forest (RB-VS), e-pharmacophore (PB-VS), and docking (DB-VS) methods. In the RB-VS(More)
