Hepatic CYP1A especially CYP1A2 plays an important role in the reduction of aristolochic acid I (AAI) nephrotoxicity. In this study, we investigated the effects of tanshinone I, a strong inducer of Cyp1a, on the nephrotoxicity induced by AAI. Histopathology and blood biochemistry assays showed that tanshinone I could reduce AAI-induced acute kidney injury.(More)
Mouse cytochrome P450 2b9 (Cyp2b9) is a testosterone 16ahydroxylase enzyme showing female-specific expression in many inbred mouse strains, including C57BL/6J. Previous studies have recognized that some sex-dependently secreted endogenous modulating factors were involved in the sexually dimorphic expression of Cyp2b9 through transcriptional regulation.

BACKGROUND Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) is limited by loss of triangulation and internal instruments conflict. To overcome these difficulties, some concepts have been introduced, namely, articulating instruments and cross-handed manipulation, which causes the right hand to control the left instrument tip and vice versa. The aim of this study(More)

Exposure to aristolochic acid I (AAI) can lead to aristolochic acid nephropathy (AAN), Balkan endemic nephropathy (BEN) and urothelial cancer. The induction of hepatic CYP1A, especially CYP1A2, was considered to detoxify AAI so as to reduce its nephrotoxicity. We previously found that baicalin had the strong ability to induce CYP1A2 expression; therefore in(More)
