Radiation-induced intestinal injuries (RIII) commonly occur in patients who suffer from pelvic or abdominal cancer. However, current management of these injuries is ineffective. Recently, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been extensively used in regenerative medicine and have achieved a high level of efficacy. In the present study, we hypothesised that(More)
Alterations in axon-dendrite polarity impair functional recovery in the developing CNS after hypoxia-ischemia (HI) injury. PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10) signaling pathway mediates the formation of neuronal polarity. However, its role in cerebral HI injury is not fully understood. In this study, we investigated the role of(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays an essential role in neuronal survival, proliferation, and synaptic remodeling and modulates the function of many other neurotransmitters. Additionally, it likely underlies neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, including alcohol dependence-related depression (AD-D). Here, we investigated the possible(More)
Akt has been demonstrated as a survival kinase in brain after hypoxia-ischemia (HI). Previous studies have shown that glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β)/collapsin response mediator protein 2 (CRMP-2) signaling pathway could be regulated by Akt for axonal-dendritic polarity. CRMP-2 is associated also with microtubule-mediated trafficking. However, whether(More)
Although radiotherapy is effective in managing abdominal and pelvic malignant tumors, radiation enteropathy is still unavoidable. This disease severely affects the quality of life of cancer patients due to some refractory lesions, such as intestinal ischemia, mucositis, ulcer, necrosis or even perforation. Current drugs or prevailing therapies are committed(More)
