Proteinuria is an exacerbating factor of chronic kidney diseases, leading to glomerulosclerosis. However, the molecular mechanisms mediating protein overload-induced podocyte injury are poorly understood. Recent studies have shown that apoptosis mediated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress participated in the progression of a variety of kidney diseases. In(More)
Diabetic encephalopathy may lead to cognitive deficits in diabetic patients and diminish quality of life. It has been shown that protracted hyperglycaemia is directly associated with neuronal apoptosis, which is involved in diabetic encephalopathy. The anaphase-promoting complex (APC) is essential for the survival of post-mitotic neurons. In our previous(More)
Ethanol has long been demonstrated to trigger cell apoptosis in the central nervous system. The over-production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is considered as one of the most important mechanisms involving in the apoptosis caused by ethanol. Ginkgolide B (GB), which was widely used as a monomer of traditional Chinese medicine, was reported to scavenge(More)
Single-minded 2 (Sim2) gene, located at the Down syndrome (DS) critical region, is thought to be particularly important because of its critical role in the development of the central nervous system (CNS) and its overexpression resulting in impairment of learning and memory which is similar to that in DS. However, its exact role in DS still remains elusive.(More)
During malignant progression, primary tumors rebuild leukocyte profile and suppress the host anti-tumor immune response. Tumor-associated neutrophils (TAN) increased in the cancer patients and emerged as an important participant and regulator of immune responses. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of circulating TAN (cTAN) in the metastatic(More)
Oral cancer, predominantly oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), is one of the most leading causes of cancers worldwide. Due to a low 5-year survival rate, highly effective methods for the early detection of OSCC are totally needed. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), as promising biomarkers, can bring insights into tumorigenesis of oral cancers. However, studies on the(More)
Previous studies on the associations between dietary antioxidant vitamins and the risk of cervical cancer remain inconsistent, and little evidence is available for serum antioxidant vitamins, which provide more accurate measurements of these nutrients. We conducted a case-control study of 458 incident cases with invasive cervical cancer and 742 controls to(More)
Objective To explore the role of the anti-inflammatory cytokine C1q/tumor necrosis factor related protein 6 (CTRP6) in gentamicin-induced acute kidney injury in rats. Methods SD rats were divided into 5 groups including control group, model group and the other 3 experimental groups. The rats in model group and experimental groups were subcutaneously(More)
A new ratiometric fluorescent sensor (DQO) based on N,N′-Di(quinolin-8-yl) oxalamide has been designed and synthesized for selective detection of Zn2+. The fluorescence ratio (I 536 nm/I 450 nm) of DQO was enhanced 10-fold when Zn2+ was present in a buffer aqueous solution at pH 8.66. The sensor showed linear response toward Zn2+ in the concentration range(More)
