Mesenchymal stem cell treatment improves outcome of COVID-19 patients via multiple immunomodulatory mechanisms
The role of MSCs in improving COVID-19 patient outcomes via maintenance of immune homeostasis is underscored by a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled phase II clinical trial to validate previous findings and explore the potential mechanisms.
Reactive oxygen species triggering systemic programmed cell death process via elevation of nuclear calcium ion level in tomatoes resisting tobacco mosaic virus.
Tetrastigma hemsleyanum ( Sanyeqing ) extracts reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease rat model
The results suggest that Sanyeqing, at least in an animal model, can attenuate COPD through its antiinflammation and antioxidant activity, which may provide a novel approach in the treatment of COPD.

This review will focus on the system level or global analysis of biological systems using protein microarrays, which will soon become an indispensable and invaluable tool for systems biology.
Oxidative Potential Induced by Ambient Particulate Matters with Acellular Assays: A Review
Acellular assays of oxidative potential (OP) induced by ambient particulate matters (PMs) are of great significance in screening for toxicity in PMs. In this review, several typical OP measurement…

Using tobacco mosaic virus to infect the tomato, it was found that localized TMV-infection could induce cell death in the uninoculated parts of the tomatoes, where the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) showed no spreading virus.
Size distribution of Platanus acerifolia allergen 3 (Pla a3) in Shanghai ambient size-resolved particles and its allergenic effects
Allergenicity of recombinant Humulus japonicus pollen allergen 1 after combined exposure to ozone and nitrogen dioxide.
Function Identification of the Nucleotides in Key cis-Element of DYSFUNCTIONAL TAPETUM1 (DYT1) Promoter
As a core regulatory gene of the anther development, DYSFUNCTIONAL TAPETUM1 (DYT1) was expressed in tapetum preferentially and the “CTCC” sequence as a whole did meet the standard of a canonical cis-element by definition.
