BACKGROUND The high glucose-induced proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) plays an important role in the development of diabetic vascular diseases. In a previous study, we confirmed that Interferon regulatory factor-1 (Irf-1) is a positive regulator of the high glucose-induced proliferation of VSMCs. However, the mechanisms remain to be(More)
Our previous study showed that after being treated with 5-azacytidine, Nkx2.5(+) human cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs) derived from embryonic heart tubes could differentiate into cardiomyocytes. Although 5-azacytidine is a classical agent that induces myogenic differentiation in various types of cells, the drug is toxic and unspecific for myogenic(More)
AIM To generate monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against mucin 16 using purified recombinant protein of human mucin 16 N terminus with His tag (His-mucin 16N) as the antigen. METHODS Mucin 16 N terminus was cloned into a prokaryotic expression vector pET-32. His-mucin 16N was then expressed in E.coli and purified by the affinity chromotography. Cell fusion(More)
