BACKGROUND/AIMS Estradiol (EST) reduces the risk of stroke and decreases the incidence and progression of the disease because of its neuroprotective roles in inhibiting cell death that occurs in response to a variety of neuronal stimuli such as inflammation and oxidative stress. In this study, we determined the role played by autophagy and Nrf2-ARE signal(More)
Glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists such as exendin-4 have been widely used but their short half-life limits their therapeutic value. The recombinant protein, E2HSA, is a novel, long-acting GLP-1 receptor agonist generated by the fusion of exendin-4 with human serum albumin. In mouse pancreatic NIT-1 cells, E2HSA activated GLP-1 receptor with(More)
Vanadium compounds maintain euglycemic effects in diabetic rats long after drug withdrawal and bis(α-furancarboxylato)oxovanadium(IV) (BFOV) possesses potent antidiabetic effects in diabetic rats. Here, we investigated the treatment and posttreatment effects of BFOV in diabetic Kuo Kondo [1, 2] with Ay gene (KKAy) mice, and whether these effects were(More)
Accurate and rapid detection of protein kinase activities is of great significance because protein kinases play important regulatory roles in many vital biological processes. Herein, we wish to report a facile colorimetric protein kinase assay based on the phosphorylation-tuned crosslinking of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) by using protein kinase A (PKA) as a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of qianjin huanglian pill on kidney in monosodium L-glutamate (MSG)-treated insulin resistance (IR) mice. METHOD The ameliorative effect of qianjin huanglian pill on IR in MSG mice was evaluated in comparison with rosiglitazone (Ros). The fasting serum glucose, fasting serum insulin, insulin sensitivity index, urinary(More)
B cell activation and excessive immunoglobulin (Ig) production were suggested as the key molecular events of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyp (CRSwNP). However, whether T follicular cells (Tfh cells) were involved in this process has not been documented. In this study, 22 CRSwNP patients and 12 normal controls were enrolled, Bcl-6 (the key(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Glucokinase (GK) balances blood glucose levels via regulation of glucose metabolism and insulin secretion. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) regulates gene expression in glucose and lipid metabolism. In this study, we investigated the therapeutic effect of a novel compound, SHP289-03, which activates both GK and(More)
Pioglitazone, a selective ligand of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ), is an insulin sensitizer drug that is being used in a number of insulin-resistant conditions, including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, there is a discrepancy between preclinical and clinical data in the literature and the benefits of(More)
The amphiphilic random copolymer of P(NVP-co-NHPSS) with photocleavable N-O sulfonate side groups has been prepared to investigate the light-triggered disruption of copolymer micelles. Methods of absorption and emission spectra, solution transmittance, dynamic light scattering (DLS), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were applied. It was found that(More)
A versatile flow cytometric bead assay (FCBA) has been developed for the ultrasensitive detection of T4 PNK activity by integrating the advantages of the phosphorylation-induced hybridization chain reaction (HCR) for fluorescence signal amplification and flow cytometry for the robust, sensitive and rapid signal readout of the microbeads (MBs).
