Hantaviruses infect human endothelial cells (ECs) and are known to cause vascular-permeability-based diseases, including hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). The αvβ3 integrins, which are highly expressed on the surface of ECs, serve as hantavirus receptors. Specifically, the β3 integrin and vascular(More)

OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Salvianolic acid B preconditioned endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) on the Nkx2.5 and GATA-4 gene expressions at the early stage of cell differentiation of bone mesenchymal stem cells (BMSc) transplanted into infarcted myocardium, in order to find out the best synergism for co-transplantation of the two kinds of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of Wenyang Shengjing Decoction (WSD) containing serum on the estradiol (E2) secretion, the synthesized cytochrome P450 aromatase (P450arom) activities, as well as the expression of its encode gene CYP19 in Leydig cells of male sterile rats of adenine induced Shen-yang deficiency (SYD). METHODS Experimental rats were randomly(More)
OBJECTIVE Atrial fibrillation (AF) has been identified to contribute significantly to the morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular disease patients. The atrial structural remodeling is a hallmark of AF and the molecular mechanisms underlying this remain unclear. Hence the objective of the present study is to determine the role of angiotensin II(More)
