Adipocytes behave as a rich source of adipokines, which may be the link between obesity and its complications. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in adipocytes can modulate adipokines secretion. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of oxidized low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) treatment on ER stress and adipokines secretion in differentiated(More)
There is substantial evidence indicating that the WNT signaling pathway is activated in various cancer cell types including breast cancer. Previous studies reported that FH535, a small molecule inhibitor of the WNT signaling pathway, decreased growth of cancer cells but not normal fibroblasts, suggesting this pathway plays a role in tumor progression and(More)
Obesity, which is characteristic by chronic inflammation, is defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation in adipose tissues. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is increased in adipose tissue of obese state and is known to be strongly associated with chronic inflammation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ER stress on adipokine(More)
The recruitment of monocytes to arterial wall and their transformation into macrophages are generally accepted as important early events in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis (AS). Our research group found Reticulon3 (RTN3), a member of the reticulon family, may be a candidate pathogenic element in the progress of AS. But it is virtually unknown in which(More)
Genetics is considered as an important risk factor in the pathological changes of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Substantia nigra (SN) is thought to be the most vulnerable area in this process. In recent decades, however, few related long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the SN of PD patients had been identified and the functions of those lncRNAs had been studied(More)
BACKGROUND Risk assessment of a benign breast disease/lesion (BBD) for invasive breast cancer (IBC) is typically done through a longitudinal study. For an infrequently-reported BBD, the shortage of occurrence data alone is a limiting factor to conducting such a study. Here we present an approach based on co-occurrence analysis, to help address this issue.(More)
