The aim of this study was to investigate whether a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) +874T/A of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) correlates with response to immunosuppressive therapy. Amplification refractory mutation system-polymerase chain reaction was used to amplify the polymorphic segments of the IFN-γ +874T/A gene in the samples obtained from 54 patients(More)
This study has investigated the growth-inhibitory and apoptosis-inducing effects of dihydrotanshinone, tanshinone I, tanshinone IIA, and cryptotanshinone on hematological malignancy cell lines, aiming to explore their structure-activity relationship. The growth-inhibitory effects of the tanshinones on K562 and Raji cells were assessed using a modified MTT(More)
OBJECTIVES To detect the methylation of P15INK4B gene in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and to investigate the demethylating effects of decitabine and arsenic trioxide (As2O3). METHODS The bone marron mononuclear cells from 14 MDS patients were collected. The methylation of P15INK4B gene was detected with restrictive endonucleases combined(More)
To investigate the immune regulatory effects of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells on alloantigen T lymphocyte in vitro, human MSCs were isolated and expanded from bone marrow cells, and identified with cell morphology, and the phenotypes were assessed by immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry. As the stimulation factor of T lymphocytes(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the effect of Artesunate (ART) on the proliferation of Raji cells, Jurkat cells and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) primary cells; to determine the synergistic antiproliferation effect between ART and Vincristine (VCR) or Cytarabine(Ara-C) on Raji and Jurkat cells; and to explore the mechanism of ART induced apoptosis of tumor cells in(More)
This study was aimed to construct a two-dimensional culture system by using osteoblasts induced from human marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and to investigate its support effect on survival of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells for umbilical cord blood (UCB) ex vivo. MSCs were isolated from adult human bone marrow and were cultured, the second(More)
The mechanisms of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBMMSCs)-mediated immunomodulation are still not be completely clarified. In order to investigate the expression of B7-H1 on hBMMSCs and to explore whether B7-H1 mediated signaling pathway (B7-H1/PD-1) involves in the mechanisms of hBMMSCs-mediated immunomodulation, the hBMMSCs were isolated,(More)
The relationship between mitochondria gene mutation and hematological malignancies has been focusing on as a key point in recent studies. This study was aimed to investigate whether in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) exists mitochoudria cytochrome oxidase COI and COII gene mutations different from normal tissues and to analyze whether these(More)
Immunophenotype is critical for diagnosing common B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (common ALL) and detecting minimal residual disease. We developed a protocol to explore the immunophenotypic profiles of common ALL based on the expression levels of the antigens associated with B lymphoid development, including IL-7Rα (CD127), cytoplasmic CD79a (cCD79a),(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA) on procoagulant activity (PCA) of human ECV304 cells induced by acute promyelocytic leukemia cell line NB4 cells. METHODS ECV304 monolayers were respectively incubated for different hours at 37 degrees C in the conditioned media (CM) of NB4 cells treated with 0.5 microg/mL Tan IIA(Tan(More)
