Coxsackievirus A16 (CA16) infection, which is responsible for hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), has become a common health problem in Asia due to the prevalence of the virus. Thus, it is important to understand the pathogenesis of CA16 infection. Viruses that induce endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress are confronted with the unfolded protein response(More)
The purpose of this paper was to investigate the protective effects of polysaccharides from (PGL) Ganoderma lucidum on bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in rats. Our study demonstrated that treatment with PGL of 100-300mg/kg for 28 days led to significant reduction in the pulmonary index, inflammatory cell infiltration and collagen deposition in rats(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71), a major causative agent of hand, foot, and mouth disease, has broken out several times and was accompanied by neurological disease. microRNAs, a class of small non-coding RNAs that are approximately 20 nucleotides long, play important roles in the regulation of various biological processes, including antiviral defense. However, the(More)
Autophagy is an important homeostatic process for the degradation of cytosolic proteins and organelles and has been reported to play an important role in cellular responses to pathogens and virus replication. However, the role of autophagy in Coxsackievirus A16 (CA16) infection and pathogenesis remains unknown. Here, we demonstrated that CA16 infection(More)
BACKGROUND Celastrol, a Chinese herbal medicine, has shown antitumor activity against various tumor cell lines. However, the effect of celastrol on retinoblastoma has not yet been analyzed. Additionally, the poor water solubility of celastrol restricts further therapeutic applications. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of celastrol(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is a neurotropic virus that causes various clinical manifestations in young children, ranging from asymptomatic to fatal. Different pathotypes of EV71 notably differ in virulence. Several virulence determinants of EV71 have been predicted. However, these reported virulence determinants could not be used to identify the EV71 strains of(More)
Treatment with cisplatin, a chemotherapeutic agent commonly used in glioma patients, often results in chemoresistance. Increasing evidence has shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) are implicated in the drug resistance of gliomas. However, the function of miR‑873 in cisplatin resistance of gliomas remains unknown. In this study, we found that many miRNAs, including(More)
A simple, rapid, selective and sensitive HPLC-UV method has been developed and validated for the determination of ponicidin in rat plasma. The analyte was extracted from rat plasma by liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate as the extraction solvent. The LC separation was performed on a Zorbax Eclipse XDB C(18) analytical column (150 × 4.6 mm i.d., 5(More)
In the present study, the separation and purification characteristics of resveratrol from extract of peanut sprouts (PSE) on 11 macroporous adsorption resins were investigated. The results showed that ADS-5 offered better adsorption and desorption capacity for resveratrol than other tested resins. From the static experiments with ADS-5 resin, we found that(More)
Abnormalities of autophagy have been implicated in an increasing number of human cancers, including glioma. To date, there is a wealth of evidence indicating that microRNAs (miRNAs) contribute significantly to autophagy in a variety of cancers. Previous studies have suggested that miR-129 functioned as an important inhibitor of the cell cycle and could(More)
