microRNAs play an important roles in cell growth, differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis. They can function either as tumor suppressors or oncogenes. We found that the overexpression of miR-192 inhibited cell proliferation in A549, H460 and 95D cells, and inhibited tumorigenesis in a nude mouse model. Both caspase-7 and the PARP protein were activated(More)
AIM To investigate the anti-arrhythmic effects of sulfamide analogues of changrolin and to characterize the sulfate of compound 6f (sulcardine sulfate, Sul) as a novel anti-arrhythmic agent. METHODS The anti-arrhythmic effects of compounds were studied against aconitine-induced arrhythmias in rats and ouabain-induced arrhythmias in guinea pigs. The(More)
We have recently discovered that c-Jun executes a non-transcriptional function to stabilize hypoxia inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) and that pseudolaric acid B (PAB) accelerates HIF-1α degradation and phosphorylates c-Jun at Ser63/73. In this study, PAB was used as a probe to investigate whether and how the Ser63/73 phosphorylation of c-Jun regulates its(More)
OBJECTIVE Genetic alterations may contribute to chronic pancreatitis (CP) in Chinese young patients. This study was designed to investigate mutations of cationic trypsinogen (PRSS1), pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor or serine protease inhibitor Kazal type 1 (SPINK1), cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), chymotrypsin C (CTRC) and(More)
AIM To investigate the QT/QTc effects of orally administered moxifloxacin in healthy Chinese volunteers. METHODS This was a single-blinded, randomized, single-dose, placebo-controlled, two-period cross-over study. A total of 24 healthy Chinese volunteers were enrolled, randomly assigned to two groups: one group received moxifloxacin (400 mg, po) followed(More)
This study was to investigate the immunotoxicological potential of corn genetically modified (GM) with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Cry1Ah gene in BALB/c mice. Female BALB/c mice were randomly assigned to one of the four groups: the negative control group, the parental corn group, the GM corn group and the positive control group with 10 mice per group. Mice(More)
AIM To design novel bifunctional derivatives of huperzine B (HupB) based on the concept of dual binding site of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and evaluate their pharmacological activities for seeking new drug candidates against Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS Novel 16-substituted bifunctional derivatives of HupB were synthesized through chemical(More)
Receptor-interacting protein 3 (RIP3) is a serine/threonine protein kinase, which has extensive substrates including its cognate kinase RIP1 and multiple metabolic enzymes involving oxidative phosphorylation [1, 2]. RIP3 has been shown to be essential for development, immunity and some physiological or pathophysiological responses to exogenous and(More)
