The structure elucidations and complete (1)H and (13)C NMR assignments are reported for two new xanthone derivatives: 1,7-dihydroxy-2-methoxy-3-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-9H-xanthen-9-one (1) and 1-hydroxy-4,7-dimethoxy-6-(3-oxobutyl)-9H-xanthen-9-one (2). Both of these secondary metabolites were isolated from the fermentation medium of a mangrove endophytic(More)
A new polyketide, 2-(7′-hydroxyoxooctyl)-3-hydroxy-5-methoxybenzeneacetic acid ethyl ester (1), together with three known compounds dothiorelone A (2), B (3), and C (4) were isolated from the mangrove endophytic fungus Phomopsis sp. ZSU-H76 obtained from the South China Sea. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, mainly 1D and 2D NMR(More)
Pleural malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a highly aggressive tumor that is typically related to asbestos exposure and has a latency of 20-60 years. Several microRNA contribute to MM initiation and progression, but the mechanisms are not clear. Here, we found that miR-30d is downregulated in the pleural MM cell line NCI-H2452, in the plasma of asbestos-exposed(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) functions as a proinflammatory cytokine and is one of the most intriguing molecules in inflammatory disorders and cancers. Notably, HMGB1 is a potential therapeutic target and novel biomarker in related diseases. However, the diagnostic value of HMGB1 for benign and malignant asbestos-related diseases (ARDs) remains(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of oral treatment with tetrandrine (TD) and N-acetylcys-teine (NAC) separately or jointly on silica-exposed rats. METHODS 40 sprague-Dawly (SD) rats were randomly divided into normal saline group, quartz group, TD treatment group (50 mg/kg), NAC treatment group (500 mg/kg) and combined treatment group (TD: 50 mg/kg + NAC:(More)
Despite being a commercially important product, multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) continue to raise concerns over human health due to their structural similarity to asbestos. Indeed, exposure to MWCNT has been shown to induce lung cancer and even mesothelioma, but contradictory results also exist. To clarify the potentially carcinogenic effects of rigid(More)
