High salt is positively associated with the risk of many diseases. However, little is known about the mechanisms. Here we showed that high salt increased proinflammatory molecules, while decreased anti-inflammatory and proendocytic molecules in both human and mouse macrophages. High salt also potentiated lipopolysaccharide-induced macrophage activation and(More)
OBJECTIVE Recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF) is used topically in the treatment of diabetic lower-extremity ulcers. There have been few meta-analyses of the efficacy of rhPDGF in this treatment context. The aim of this study was to perform an updated systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the clinical efficacy of rhPDGF in the(More)
RATIONALE Hypertension remains to be a global public health burden and demands novel intervention strategies such as targeting T cells and T-cell-derived cytokines. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonists have been clinically used to treat hypertension. However, the function of T-cell MR in blood pressure (BP) regulation has not been elucidated. (More)
Although antagonists of mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) have been widely used to treat heart failure, the underlying mechanisms are incompletely understood. Recent reports show that T cells play important roles in pathologic cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. However, it is unclear whether and how MR functions in T cells under these pathologic(More)
Shuyu Yiban decoction(SYYB) has significant effect in treating the patients with coronary heart disease combined with chronic psychological stress. In this study, in order to observe the effects of SYYB on early formation of atherosclerosis(As) and inflammation response induced by chronic psychological stress, high-fat diet+intraperitoneal injections of(More)
AIM To study the antitumor peptide components in the stems and leaves of mistletoe (Viscum coloratum (Kom.) Nakai), the primary structure of the novel peptide was elucidated. METHODS Cation exchange, gel filtration and HPLC were employed for isolation and purification. Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight-Mass Spectrometry was used(More)
Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) has been considered as a potential target for treating atherosclerosis. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms are not completely understood. We aim to explore the functions and mechanisms of macrophage MR in atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis-susceptible LDLRKO chimeric mice with bone marrow cells from floxed control(More)
Although the importance of macrophages in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been recognized, how macrophages affect hepatocytes remains elusive. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) has been implicated to play important roles in NAFLD and T2DM. However, cellular and molecular mechanisms are largely unknown. We(More)
We investigate the electronic and magnetic properties of K(x)Fe(2-y)Se2 materials at different band fillings utilizing the multi-orbital Kotliar-Ruckenstein slave boson mean-field approach. We find that the ground state of KFe2Se2 is a paramagnetic (PM) bad metal with intermediate correlation, in contrast with the previous antiferromagnetic (AFM) results(More)
The main aim of the detailed facility layout is to calculate the obstacle-avoiding Manhattan shortest path (OAMSP) between facilities. We propose a connectivity graph generation approach for OAMSP calculation. The proposed approach makes full use of the characteristics of Manhattan distance, which are different from Euclidean distance. The proposed(More)
