BACKGROUND The accumulation of free radicals and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in cell plays a very important role in replicative senescence. Aminoguanidine (AG) has potential antioxidant effects and decreases AGE levels. This study aimed to investigate its effect on replicative senescence in vitro. METHODS The effects of aminoguanidine on(More)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) has an important function in the generation of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In our previous study, miR‑193b was found to be downregulated in the hippocampi of 9‑month‑old APP/PS1 double‑transgenic mice using microRNA (miR) array. In the present study, bioinformatic analyses showed that miR‑193b was a miR that was predicted to(More)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) and β-site APP cleaving enzyme (BACE-1) play important roles in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study, using bioinformatics analysis, we demonstrate that miR-384 is a microRNA (miRNA or miR) predicted to potentially target the 3' untranslated regions (3'-UTRs) of both APP and BACE-1. SH-SY5Y cells were(More)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) and β-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme (BACE-1) play important roles in the generation of Alzheimer׳s disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder. In the present study, microRNA (miR) microarray was used to analyze the miR expression profiles in the hippocampi from APP/PS1 transgenic and wild type(More)
BACKGROUND Astragali Radix, the root of Astragalus membranceus (Fish) Bunge Var. mongholicus (Bge), is a crude drug considered as one of the effective traditional Chinese anti-ageing material. The two isomers of 4-hydroxy-5-hydroxymethyl-[1, 3] dioxolan-2, 6'-spirane-5', 6', 7', 8'-tetrahydro-indolizine-3'-carbaldehyde (HDTIC), HDTIC-1 and HDTIC-2, were(More)
Aging progress and degeneracy of functional activity are mainly attributed to the decreased DNA repair potential. DNA polymerase (pol) δ activity plays an essential role in genome stability by virtue of its crucial DNA replication and repair capacity. To order to clarify the role of DNA pol δ in aging progression, we firstly examined the expressions of its(More)
Aging is associated with a reduction in the DNA repair capacity under oxidative stress. However, whether the DNA damage and repair capacity can be a biomarker of aging remains controversial. In this study, we demonstrated two cause-and-effect relationships, the one is between the DNA damage and repair capacity and the cellular age, another is between DNA(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence and subtype distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and its correlation with age among women in Beijing urban area, and provide some epidemiological evidence for the clinical application of HPV vaccines. METHODS We collected cervical specimens from 1999 women in the Outpatient Department of our(More)
A scheme of direct adaptive H∞ control based on least squares support vector machines (LS-SVM) is proposed for a class of nonlinear uncertain systems. In this method, LS-SVM is employed to construct the adaptive controller, and an on-line learning rule for the weighting vector and bias is derived. A parameter selection method based on the genetic algorithm(More)
