We previously reported the involvement of conventional protein kinase C (cPKC) βII, γ, novel PKC (nPKC) ε and their interacting proteins in hypoxic pre-conditioning (HPC)-induced neuroprotection. In this study, the large-scale miRNA microarrays and bioinformatics analysis were used to determine the differentially expressed miRNAs and their PKC-isoform(More)
Understanding the molecular mechanism of cerebral hypoxic preconditioning (HPC)-induced endogenous neuroprotection may provide potential therapeutic targets for ischemic stroke. By using bioinformatics analysis, we found that miR-181b, one of 19 differentially expressed miRNAs, may target aconitate hydratase (ACO2), heat shock protein A5 (HSPA5), and(More)
BACKGROUND Increased expression of the Fragile X Mental Retardation 1 (FMR1) gene in blood cells has been claimed to be associated with variable (CGG)(n) triplet numbers in the 5' untranslated region of this gene. Increased CGG triplet numbers, including that of the so-called premutation range (n= 55-200), were shown to have a risk of <26% to impair ovarian(More)
Members of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily have been revealed to be associated with painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis (PBS/IC). TNF ligand-related molecule 1A (TL1A) and its receptor, death receptor 3 (DR3), belong to the TNF superfamily and have been implicated in chronic inflammatory diseases. Bladder biopsies from 8 female(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative remifentanil-induced pain sensitization is common, but its molecular mechanism remains unclear. Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) has been shown to have a critical role in morphine-induced hyperalgesia. This study was designed to determine how CaMKII phosphorylation and protein expression levels change in the(More)
