Through bioassay-guided fractionation of the extracts from the aerial parts of the Chinese herb Hypericum japonicum Thunb. Murray, Isojacareubin (ISJ) was characterized as a potent antibacterial compound against the clinical methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The broth microdilution assay was used to determine the minimal inhibitory(More)
To evaluate the effects of cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP)- angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) on allogeneic islet graft survival in a bioinert perforated chamber. COMP-Ang1 treatment significantly decreased lipopolysaccharide-induced cell apoptosis and islet-related lymph node cell proliferation (both P < 0.01). Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to be critical in regulating tumor development and progression. The present study investigated the expression of miR‑588 using reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis in 85 cases of lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and observed the correlation between the expression of miR‑588 with(More)
BACKGROUND Propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) is one of the most frequently used anesthetic agents. One of the main side effects of propofol is to reduce blood pressure, which is thought to occur by inhibiting the release of catecholamines from sympathetic neurons. Here, the authors hypothesized that propofol-induced hypotension is not simply the result of(More)
A cotton fiber is a single and highly elongated ovule epidermal cell. However, the mechanism that governs the development of fiber traits remains unclear. In this study, we cloned a calcium-dependent protein kinase (GhCPK1) and an actin depolymerizing factor (GhADF1) from Gossypium hirsutum. Real-time PCR analyses indicated that the expression of GhCPK1 and(More)
The antibacterial activity of 80% ethanol extracts of 10 medicinal plants collected in Yunnan (Southwest China), was tested against clinical isolates of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing strains. Their MIC values ranged between 1.56-12.50 mg/mL. The most active plant extract was Chelidonium majus L. (MIC = 1.56 mg/mL). Two potent isoquinoline(More)
