Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) treatment has been shown to be effective in diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, the mechanisms involved in the renoprotective effects of MSCs have not been clearly demonstrated. Especially, there was no study on the relationship of MSCs and macrophages in diabetic kidney. To explore the effect of MSCs on macrophages in DN,(More)
Inflammation is involved in the development and/or progression of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Curcumin has been reported for its anti-inflammation activity in DN. However, the mechanisms involved in the renoprotective effects of curcumin have not been clearly demonstrated. In this study, we hypothesized that curcumin affected high glucose (HG)-induced(More)
We constructed the copper(I)-binding domain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) CDC 1551 (residues 1-162) between cyan fluorescent protein (CFP) and yellow fluorescent protein (YFP), and formed a novel genetically encoded fluorescent copper(I) responsive protein (PMtb). The sensitivity and selectivity to copper(I) of the PMtb was sought. The experiments(More)
