To explore the potential roles of miRNAs in controlling the survival of mycobacteria in macrophages, miR-17-5p in the regulation of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin(BCG)growth in the macrophage RAW264.7 cells was interrogated. Our results reveal that an infection of BCG shows a time-dependent up-regulation of miR-17-5p in RAW264.7 cells in early phase; importantly,(More)
Autophagy plays important roles in the host immune response against mycobacterial infection. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) can live in macrophages owing to its ability to evade attacks by regulating autophagic response. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding, endogenously encoded RNA which plays critical roles in precise regulation of(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE A series of 40 important Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs), which were reported effective in treating superficial fungal infections of the skin in Chinese clinical trial publications and Chinese Herbal Classics, were chosen for the investigation of the individual and combination antifungal properties against 8 superficial(More)
BACKGROUND Therapeutic vaccination is a desirable alternative for controlling Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. Attachment to the gastric mucosa is the first step in establishing bacterial colonization, and adhesins, which are on the surface of H. pylori, play a pivotal role in binding to human gastric mucosa. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present(More)
