B7-H3, a novel member of the B7 family, was previously known as a regulatory ligand regulating T-cell-mediated immune response, and in recent years it was found to take a significant role in various cancers. In some tumor types, high expression of B7-H3 had been linked to a poor prognosis, whereas in other cancers the opposite effect had been observed. The(More)
Previous results showed that a novel BH3 mimetic S1 could induce cell death in a wide range of cancer types in vitro through Bax/Bak-dependent apoptosis. We demonstrated that in addition to mitochondrial pathway apoptosis, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-associated apoptosis was also induced by S1. Moreover, S1 can induce autophagy in U251 cells, which(More)
The volatile chemical constituents of Artemisia capillaries (an important traditional Chinese medicine) were determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and sub-window factor analysis (SFA). Seventy-five components were separated and 43 of them were qualitatively and quantitatively determined, which represented about 89.03% of the total(More)
AIM To analyze and compare the compositions in essential oils from branches and leaves of Rhododendron simsii Planch. and Rhododendron naamkwanense Merr. METHODS Essential oils were extracted by water distillation according to Chinese Pharmacopoeia and analyzed by capillary gas chromatography-mass spectrometry as well as chemometrics resolution method and(More)
Previous studies have suggested that endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) is one of the mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Histone acetylation modification can regulate the transcription of genes and is involved in the regulation of ERS. Valproate (VPA), a nonselective histone deacetylase inhibitor, has been reported to(More)
Eight new monoterpenoid indole alkaloids, gardfloramine-9-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (1), 19(E)-18-demethoxygardfloramine-N(4)-oxide (2), gardfloramine-N(4)-oxide (3), 18-demethylgardfloramine (4), 19(E)-9,18-didemethoxygardneramine (5), 19(E)-11-methoxy-9,18-didemethoxygardneramine (6), 9-demethoxy-18-demethylgardneramine (7), and minfiensine-N(4)-oxide (8),(More)
The volatile chemical constituents in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Artemisia capillaris herba, were determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The acquired two-dimensional data were resolved by correlative chemometric resolution methods. The noise in the raw data is pretreated by roughness penalty smoothing method. With the data(More)
A new nor-ceanothane-type triterpenoid, breynceanothanolic acid (1), and seven novel 4α-methyl sterols, fruticosides A-G (2-8), were obtained from the roots of Breynia fruticosa. The new compound structures were established by means of extensive spectroscopic and chemical methods. Compounds 7 and 8 are sulfur-containing derivatives of the 4α-methyl sterols,(More)
Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) can evade the immune response and establish chronic infection under natural and experimental conditions. Some genes related to antigen processing and presentation and to cytokine regulation are known to be involved in this response, but the precise mechanism through which each gene responds to CSFV infection remains(More)
