AIM To determine if growth arrest-specific 6 (Gas6) plays an important role in the regulation of angiogenesis in human retinal microvascular endothelial cells (HRMECs) and in vessel development of zebrafish. METHODS Proliferation, wound-healing cell migration, and tube formation were measured in HRMECs treated with recombinant human Gas6 (rhGas6).(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulating evidences suggest that aldose reductase (AR) inhibitors and advanced glycation end product (AGE) formation inhibitors may prevent chronic hyperglycemia-induced long-term complication in diabetes. Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-β1) plays an important role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Allium species have been(More)
Three new phenolic biphenyl derivatives (1-3) and one new lignan glycoside (4) were isolated from the leaves and twigs of Osteomeles schwerinae. The structures of the new compounds were established by spectroscopic data interpretation. The inhibitory effects of 1-4 on rat lens aldose reductase in vitro were examined, and compounds 1-3 markedly inhibited the(More)
