We report the clinical and genetic characterization of two Chinese LHON families who do not carry the primary LHON-mutations. Mitochondrial genome sequence analysis revealed the presence of a homoplasmic ND1 G3635A mutation in both families. In Family LHON-001, 31 other variants belonging to the East Asian haplogroup R11a were identified and in Family(More)
Protein kinase C (PKC) has been reported to be associated with the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) by hyperosmolality. However, it is unclear whether hyperosmolality induces PKC activation and which PKC isoforms are involved in ERK activation. In this study, we demonstrate that NaCl increases total PKC activity and induces(More)
UVC irradiation activates mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), including ERK, JNK, and P38. This study examined the role of protein kinase C (PKC) in the regulation of UVC-stimulated MAPKs activation. Either the depletion of PKC by prolonged treatment of cells with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) or the inhibition of PKC by a selective PKC(More)
