It has been well demonstrated that hypoxic preconditioning (HPC) can attenuate hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)-induced oxidant stress and elicit delayed cardioprotection by upregulating the expression of multiple antioxidative enzymes such as heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and so on. However, the underlying mechanisms of(More)
Peritoneal metastasis is a major cause of death in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma. DJ-1 is now considered to play an important role in the metastasis of various malignancies. However, it remains largely unclear whether DJ-1 is involved in the development of peritoneal metastasis by gastric carcinoma. In the present study, we showed that the(More)
We have recently shown that DJ-1 is implicated in the delayed cardioprotective effect of hypoxic preconditioning (HPC) against hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) injury as an endogenous protective protein. This study aims to further investigate the underlying mechanism by which DJ-1 mediates the delayed cardioprotection of HPC against H/R-induced oxidative stress.(More)
AIM To compare dosimetry, efficacy, and toxicity of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with para-aortic field radiotherapy in patients with para-aortic lymph node (PALN) metastasis of cervical cancer. METHODS This prospective study examined 60 patients with cervical cancer with PALN metastasis who underwent whole-pelvis radiotherapy followed by(More)
Anion exchanger 3 (AE3) is known to serve crucial roles in maintaining intracellular chloride homeostasis by facilitating the reversible electroneutral exchange of Cl‑ for HCO3‑ across the plasma membrane. Our previous studies reported that sasanquasaponin (SQS) can inhibit hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)‑induced elevation of intracellular Cl‑ concentration(More)
Sasanquasaponin (SQS) has been reported to elicit cardioprotection by suppressing hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)-induced elevation of intracellular chloride ion concentration ([Cl-]i). Given that the increased [Cl-]i is involved to modulate the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP), we herein sought to further investigate the role of mPTP in the(More)
Sasanquasaponin (SQS) is an active component of Camellia oleifera Abel. A recent study by our group demonstrated that SQS was able to inhibit ischemia/reperfusion‑induced elevation of the intracellular chloride ion concentration ([Cl‑]i) and exerted cardioprotective effects; however, the underlying intracellular signal transduction mechanisms have yet to be(More)
DJ‑1 protein, as a multifunctional intracellular protein, has been demonstrated to serve a critical role in regulating cell survival and oxidative stress. To provide in vivo evidence that DJ‑1 is involved in the delayed cardioprotection induced by ischemic preconditioning (IPC) against oxidative stress caused by ischemia/reperfusion (I/R), the present study(More)
DJ-1 protein, as a multifunctional intracellular protein, has an important role in transcriptional regulation and anti-oxidant stress. A recent study by our group showed that DJ-1 can regulate the expression of certain anti‑oxidant enzymes and attenuate hypoxia/re‑oxygenation (H/R)‑induced oxidative stress in the cardiomyocyte cell line H9c2; however, the(More)
BACKGROUND The combination of brain tissue oxygen and standard intracranial pressure (ICP)/cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP)-guided therapy is thought to improve traumatic brain injury (TBI) prognosis compared with standard ICP/CPP-guided therapy. However, related results of previous observational studies and recently published cohort studies and randomized(More)
