Various iron-oxide nanoparticles have been in use for a long time as therapeutic and imaging agents and for supplemental delivery in cases of iron-deficiency. While all of these products have a specified size range of ∼40 nm and above, efforts are underway to produce smaller particles, down to ∼1 nm. Here, we show that after a 24-h exposure of SHSY-5Y human(More)
Recent studies have suggested that the metastasis-associated colon cancer1 (MACC1) gene can promote tumor proliferation, invasion and metastasis through an upregulation of c-Met expression. However, its role in gastric cancer is controversial. Our study investigated expression of MACC1 and c-Met in gastric cancer, as well as correlated this with(More)
Overexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) has been implicated as a critical molecular signal in tumor development by promoting intratumoral lymphangiogenesis. The aim of this study was to explore whether small hairpin RNA (shRNA) targeting VEGF-C could inhibit gastric cancer lymphangiogenesis and tumor growth. Plasmid-mediated(More)
Elevated β-amyloid (Aβ) is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Recent evidence has suggested that the receptor of advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is a key target for Aβ-induced perturbation in AD, and blockade of RAGE significantly alleviates synaptic injury. Our previous study has suggested that β-asarone could reduce neuronal apoptosis and(More)
