BACKGROUND HIV protease inhibitor (PI)-induced inflammatory response in macrophages is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. We have previously reported that berberine (BBR), a traditional herbal medicine, prevents HIV PI-induced inflammatory response through inhibiting endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in macrophages. We also found that HIV PIs(More)
miRNAs typically downregulate the expression of target genes by binding to their 3'UTR, and dysregulation of miRNAs may contribute to tumorigenesis. Here, we found that miR-346 and miR-138 competitively bind to a common region in the 3'UTR of hTERT mRNA and have opposite effects on the expression and function of hTERT in human cervical cancer cells.(More)
