T-2 toxin, which belongs to a group of mycotoxins synthesized by Fusarium fungi that are widely encountered as natural contaminants, induced apoptosis with distinct morphological and biological features in U937 cells. The concentration of more than 10nM T-2 toxin affected cell viability, induced nuclear and DNA fragmentation and caspase-3 activation.(More)
In the present study, the changes of the regulatory T cells (Treg) expression, endotoxin translocation, and the relationships in intestinal lymph nodes were investigated in porcine sepsis induced by severe burns. Flow cytometry, western blot, and Tachypleus amebocyte lysate were applied to study after the burn injury model was built. We found that the(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness of blood purification (BP) in severely burned patients with sepsis and to assess the prognostic utilities of early serum levels of procalcitonin (PCT), C reactive protein (CRP), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). One hundred and ninety-five burn sepsis patients admitted in our hospital(More)
OBJECTIVE The risks of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other major causes of mortality are largely attributable to lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol drinking, hours of working and sleeping, physical activity, diet, and stress. Earlier studies have suggested that an unhealthy lifestyle is also associated with increased lymphocyte sensitivity to(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors cause growth inhibition of human gastric carcinoma cells, but it remains unclear whether this is both COX-2 dependent and independent. The related mechanisms remain to be determined. Both low COX-2 expressing gastric carcinoma and high COX-2 expressing gastric carcinoma cells were used to study the effect and mechanisms(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulated to-date microarray data on ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) of kidney represent a powerful source for identifying new targets and mechanisms of kidney IRI. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis of gene expression profiles of kidney IRI in human, pig, rat, and mouse models, using a new scoring method to correct for the bias of(More)
Aging is the predominant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and contributes to a considerably more severe outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, is a caloric restriction mimetic with potential anti-aging properties which has emerged as a beneficial nutraceutical for patients with(More)
Atrazine, a member of the 2-chloro-s-triazine family of herbicides, is the most widely used pesticide in the world and often detected in agriculture watersheds. Although it was generally considered as an endocrine disruptor, posing a potential threat to human health, the molecular mechanisms of atrazine effects remain unclear. Using two-dimensional gel(More)
Our previous study indicated that overexpression of nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) aggravated acute lung injury, while knockdown of NAMPT expression attenuated ventilator-induced lung injury. Recently, we found that meta-carborane-butyl-3-(3-pyridinyl)-2E-propenamide (MC-PPEA, MC4), in which the benzoylpiperidine moiety of FK866 has been(More)
Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) is a pleiotropic protein implicated in the pathogenesis of acute respiratory distress syndrome, aging, cancer, coronary heart diseases, diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, and sepsis. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms of NAMPT in these physiological and(More)
