The protective mechanism of ligustrazine against renal ischemia/reperfusion injury.
BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is unavoidable in renal transplantation, and represents an additional risk factor for the late renal allograft failure. Our study focused on the effectsExpand

Mesenchymal stem cells protect islets from hypoxia/reoxygenation‐induced injury
Hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)‐induced injury is the key factor associated with islet graft dysfunction. This study aims to examine the effect of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on islet survival andExpand

Rb1 postconditioning attenuates liver warm ischemia-reperfusion injury through ROS-NO-HIF pathway.
AIMS Ginsenoside Rb1 could prevent ischemic neuronal death and focal cerebral ischemia, but its roles to liver warm I/R injury remain to be defined. We determined if Rb1 would attenuate warm I/RExpand

Chondroitin Sulfate as a Molecular Portal That Preferentially Mediates the Apoptotic Killing of Tumor Cells by Penetratin-directed Mitochondria-disrupting Peptides*
The use of cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) as drug carriers for targeted therapy is limited by the unrestricted cellular translocation of CPPs. The preferential induction of tumor cell death byExpand

Neuroprotection of brain-derived neurotrophic factor against hypoxic injury in vitro requires activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase
Intrauterine asphyxia is one of the major contributors for perinatal death, mental and physical disorders of surviving children. Brain‐derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) provides a promising solutionExpand

Mechanisms of Cyclosporine-Induced Renal Cell Apoptosis: A Systematic Review
Background/Aims: Chronic cyclosporine A (CsA) nephrotoxicity (CCN) is an important cause of chronic renal dysfunction with no effective clinical intervention. To further elucidate the mechanisms ofExpand

Do CD4+ Foxp3+ Treg cells correlate with transplant outcomes: a systematic review on recipients of solid organ transplantation.
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are considered to be critical for the induction of transplant tolerance. Tregs counts were measured in blood, biopsy and urine sample after transplantation in many studies.Expand

Over-expression of microRNA-494 up-regulates hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha expression via PI3K/Akt pathway and protects against hypoxia-induced apoptosis
BackgroundHypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α) is one of the key regulators of hypoxia/ischemia. MicroRNA-494 (miR-494) had cardioprotective effects against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-inducedExpand
