Excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a key role in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. The thioredoxin (TRX) system, a major thiol antioxidant system, regulates the reduction of intracellular ROS. Here we show that high glucose (HG) inhibits TRX ROS-scavenging function through p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-mediated induction of(More)
Increasing evidence suggests that depression is accompanied by dysregulation of neuroimmune system. Sulforaphane (SFN) is a natural compound with antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective activities. The present study aims to investigate the effects of SFN on depressive- and anxiety-like behaviors as well as potential neuroimmune mechanisms in(More)
A Serratia rubidaea phage, vB_Sru IME250, was isolated from hospital sewage. The morphology suggested that phage vB_Sru IME250 should be classified as a member of the family Myoviridae. High-throughput sequencing revealed that the phage genome has 154,938 nucleotides and consists of 193 coding DNA sequences, 90 of which have putative functions. The genome(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to explore the pathogenic mechanism of group A Streptococcus (GAS) and to investigate how GAS evades phagocytosis by immune cells. METHODS The classical inflammatory signaling pathway of macrophages infected with GAS was investigated by protein microarray, real-time PCR, Western blot, immunoprecipitation, and flow(More)
