AIM To explore the mechanisms involved in ox-LDL transcytosis across endothelial cells and the role of caveolae in this process. METHODS An in vitro model was established to investigate the passage of oxidized low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) through a tight monolayer of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) cultured on a collagen-coated filter.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of Runx3 gene CpG island methylation in the development of human gastric carcinoma. METHODS A total of 150 tumor specimens from patients with gastric carcinoma and 50 normal tissue specimens were selected. Methylation specific PCR (MSP) and pyrosequencing (PS) were used to detect the methylation status of Runx3 gene(More)
AIM To evaluate the effects of angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1) on myocardial endothelial cell function under high glucose (HG) condition. METHODS Mouse heart myocardial endothelial cells (MHMECs) were cultured and incubated under HG (25 mmol/L) or normal glucose (NG, 5 mmol/L) conditions for 72 h. MTT was used to determine cellular viability, and TUNEL assay and(More)
BACKGROUND Ezetimibe is a potent inhibitor of Niemann-Pick type C1-Like 1 and has been approved for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Our preliminary study showed that ezetimibe promotes cholesterol efflux from vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Our aim was to investigate the cellular mechanisms underlying the ezetimibe actions. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
A variety of cardiovascular diseases is accompanied by the loss of vascular contractility. This study sought to investigate the effects of curcumin, a natural polyphenolic compound present in turmeric, on mouse vascular contractility and the underlying mechanisms. After mice were administered curcumin (100 mg·kg-1·d-1, ig) for 6 weeks, the contractile(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the achievements and safety of Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) associated Portal Vein Chemo-therapy (PVC) per-drug delivery system (DDS) program in preventing the recurrence of hepatic cell cancer (HCC) and Portal Vein Tumor Thrombus (PVTT). METHODS 97 cases with HCC and PVTT were treated from January 2009 to January(More)
Traffic congestion at bus bays has decreased the service efficiency of public transit seriously in China, so it is crucial to systematically study its theory and methods. However, the existing studies lack theoretical model on computing efficiency. Therefore, the calculation models of bus delay at bays are studied. Firstly, the process that buses are(More)
