Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common form of primary liver cancer, is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in human. Alcohol is a known risk factor for HCC. However it is still unclear whether and how alcohol enhances the progression and metastasis of existing HCC. We first retrospectively investigated 52 HCC patients (24(More)
Lycium barbarum is a widely used Chinese herbal medicine prescription for protection of optic nerve. However, it remains unclear regarding the effects of Lycium barbarum polysaccharides, the main component of Lycium barbarum, on in vivo proliferation of adult ciliary body cells. In this study, adult rats were intragastrically administered low- and high-dose(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect of Ligustrazine on burn-induced liver injury as well as the activation of nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) in severely burned rats. Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: (1) sham group, rats who underwent sham burn; (2) control group, rats given third-degree burns over 30% total body surface(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have indicated that Tec tyrosine kinase is differentially expressed in the regenerating liver. The purpose of the present study was to further investigate the potential involvement of Tec tyrosine kinase in hepatocyte proliferation and liver regeneration. METHODS Tec kinase gene expression after partial (two-thirds) hepatectomy(More)
To study the biological function of EDAG-1, a novel gene cloned by our lab recently, the EDAG-1 cDNA was subcloned into pcDNA3. 1(+) vector and transfected into NIH3T3 cells by Lipofect AMINE methods. Overexpression of EDAG-1 in NIH3T3 cells resulted in loss of cell contact inhibition, anchorage-independent growth in soft agar and tumor formation in nude(More)
MicroRNAs (miR, miRNAs) play pivotal roles in numerous physiological and pathophysiological contexts. We investigated whether miR-362-5p act as an oncogene in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and aimed to understand its potential underlying mechanisms. We compared the miR-362-5p expression levels between CML and non-CML cell lines, and between fresh blood(More)
Acute lung injury is a common complication in patients with extensive burns in which the burned area exceeds 30% of the total body surface area (TBSA). This study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of Ligustrazine on burn-induced lung injury as well as the release of interleukin-8 (IL-8) in rats to characterize the role of Ligustrazine and IL-8 in lung(More)
Arsenite (AS) is a ubiquitous environmental element that is widely present in food, soil, and water. Environmental exposure to AS represents a major global health concern, because AS is a well-established human carcinogen. We hypothesize that low concentration of AS could enhance metastasis and proliferation of transformed cancer cells by promoting EMT. To(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Embryonic development associated gene 1 (EDAG-1), located at chromosome 9q22, is specially expressed in hematopoietic cells, and related to the regulation of hematopoietic system. This study was designed to explore relationship between pathogenesis of leukemia, lymphoma and EDAG-1 through analyzing the structure of EDAG-1 coding(More)
