BACKGROUND Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are important for endothelial regeneration and angiogenesis. Thrombin protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR1) PAR1 and PAR4 stimulation induces selective release of platelet proangiogenic and antiangiogenic regulators. OBJECTIVE To investigate if PAR1-stimulated platelet releasate (PAR1-PR) and PAR4-PR regulate(More)
UNLABELLED ESSENTIALS: Platelet releasates (PRs) enhance endothelial colony forming cell (ECFC) angiogenesis. The impact of platelet membrane components on ECFC angiogenesis was studied by a tube formation assay. Platelets enhanced ECFC angiogenesis more potently than PR, via tetraspanin CD151 and integrin α6β1. Optimal enhancement of ECFC angiogenesis by(More)
The purpose of this study was the cytotoxicity assay of dental material HEMA monomer to human dental pulp cell by MTT method and application of the flow cytometry to analyze effect of dental material on the cell cycle progression. The result of MTT method showed the inhibition of cell growth and 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) of HEMA monomer in human(More)
In this article, a novel MgCa alloy-hydroxyapatite-tricalcium phosphate (HA/TCP) composite was fabricated using the liquid alloy infiltration technique. The feasibility of the composite for biomedical applications was studied through mechanical testing, electrochemical testing, immersion testing, and cell culture evaluation. It was shown that the composite(More)
This study aims to identify the crucial miRNAs in Epstein-Barr virus-positive nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and their target genes. Gene expression profile data (GSE12452) that included 31 NPC and 10 normal nasopharyngeal tissue specimens were downloaded. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified using significance analysis of microarrays. The(More)
