A new 2-imino-1,3-thiazoline derivative, KHG22394, inhibits melanin synthesis in mouse B16 melanoma cells.
TLDR
The findings suggest that 2-imino-1,3-thiazoline derivatives are potential skin whitening agents, and show that KHG22394 significantly inhibits melanin production in a dose-dependent manner, but that it does not directly inhibit tyrosinase, the rate limiting melanogenic enzyme.
Cytoprotective effect of green tea extract and quercetin against hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative stress
TLDR
A multi-combination of GT extract, quercetin, and folic acid appeared to prevent cellular damage in a synergistic manner, which suggests that combinations of antioxidants may be of importance, and that co-treatment with antioxidants offers a possible means of treating vitiligo.
Enhanced-autophagy by exenatide mitigates doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity.
Indole-3-carbinol enhances ultraviolet B-induced apoptosis by sensitizing human melanoma cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that I3C sensitizes human melanoma cells by down-regulating Bcl-2, and an increased Bax/B Cl-2 ratio by I 3C/UVB may result in melanoma apoptosis.
Aglycone of Rh4 Inhibits Melanin Synthesis in B16 Melanoma Cells: Possible Involvement of the Protein Kinase A Pathway
TLDR
Data suggest that A-Rh4 has an anti-melanogenic effect via the protein kinase A pathway and this might be responsible for the regulation down of MITF and tyrosinase in B16 melanoma cells.
Ultraviolet B preconditioning enhances the hair growth-promoting effects of adipose-derived stem cells via generation of reactive oxygen species.
TLDR
Results suggest that the primary involvement of ROS generation in UVB-mediated ASC stimulation occurs via the Nox4 enzyme, the first indication that a low dose of UVB radiation and/or the control of ROSgeneration could potentially be incorporated into a novel ASC preconditioning method for hair regeneration.
Cardioprotective effects of PKG activation by soluble GC activator, BAY 60-2770, in ischemia-reperfusion-injured rat hearts
TLDR
BAY 60–2770 demonstrated a protective effect against cardiac IR injury via mitoKATP opening and decreased mitoROS by PKG activation and was demonstrated to be used as a therapeutic agent for cardiacIR injury.
Indole-3-carbinol and ultraviolet B induce apoptosis of human melanoma cells via down-regulation of MITF.
TLDR
Results indicate that MITF plays a critical role in melanoma cell survival and 13C/UVB dramatically decreased the viability of MITF-down-regulated SK-MEL-5 cells.
Hair-Growth-Promoting Effect of Conditioned Medium of High Integrin α6 and Low CD 71 (α6bri/CD71dim) Positive Keratinocyte Cells
TLDR
It is indicated that KSC-CM has the potential to increase hair growth via the proliferative capacity of HFDPCs and ORS cells through the phosphorylation of ATK and ERK1/2 in both cell types.
Arbutin inhibits TCCSUP human bladder cancer cell proliferation via up-regulation of p21.
TLDR
It is suggested that arbutin inhibits TCCSUP cell proliferation via ERK inactivation and p21 up-regulation and cell cycle regulation.
