This study was designed to determine levels of NF-κB reporter gene activity and free radical generation in cultured striated myocytes (H9C2 cells) exposed to cocaine or morphine in the presence of free radical scavengers. Cells were transiently transfected with a NF-κB reporter gene and changes in luciferase activity were detected, by bioluminescence. Using confocal microscopy and 2′,7′-dichlorofluorescin diacetate, cocaine-induced or morphine-induced free radicals were quantified in H9C2 cells… Expand
Cocaine increases intracellular calcium and reactive oxygen species, depolarizes mitochondria, and activates genes associated with heart failure and remodeling
TLDR
Analysis of left-ventricular heart function in adult rabbits and gene expression microarray technology suggest that acute cocaine administration initiates cellular and genetic changes that could cause cardiac deficits similar to those seen in heart failure and ischemia, such as ventricular dysfunction, cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac remodeling. Expand
3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine activates nuclear factor-κB, increases intracellular calcium, and modulates gene transcription in rat heart cells
TLDR
Results suggest that MDMA may be toxic to the heart through its ability to activate the myocardial NF-κB response, disrupt cytosolic calcium and mitochondrial homeostasis, and alter gene transcription. Expand
Protective Effect of Morphine Against the Oxidant-Induced Injury in H9c2 Cells
TLDR
It can be concluded that morphine may protect H9c2 cells against oxidative stress and that this protection is at least partially mediated through activation of the p38 MAPK and PI3K/GSK-3β pathways. Expand
NADPH oxidase inhibition prevents cocaine-induced up-regulation of xanthine oxidoreductase and cardiac dysfunction.
TLDR
It is suggested that NADPH and xanthine oxidase act synergically to form myocardial ROS and clearly demonstrate that their inhibition may be critical in preventing the initiation and progression of cocaine-induced LV dysfunction. Expand
Cocaine and human immunodeficiency virus type 1 gp120 mediate neurotoxicity through overlapping signaling pathways
TLDR
Increased neurotoxicity mediated by cocaine and gp120 was ameliorated by NADPH oxidase inhibitor apocynin, thus underscores the role of oxidative stress, mitochondrial and MAPK signal pathways in cocaine and HIV gp120-mediated neurotoxicity. Expand
Imaging of nuclear factor κB activation induced by ionizing radiation in human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure of recombinant human embryonic kidney cells to ionizing radiation induces NF-κB-dependent DD-tdTomato expression, which is a destabilized variant of red fluorescent protein tdTomato. Expand
Novel selective COX-1 inhibitors suppress neuroinflammatory mediators in LPS-stimulated N13 microglial cells.
TLDR
Its high selective inhibition rather than COX-2 (by coxibs) is more likely to reduce neuroinflammation and has been further investigated as a potential therapeutic approach and prevention in neurodegenerative diseases with a marked inflammatory component. Expand
3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine Alters Left Ventricular Function and Activates Nuclear Factor-Kappa B (NF-κB) in a Time and Dose Dependent Manner
TLDR
The current results suggest that MDMA is acutely detrimental to heart function and that an intact cardiovascular NOS system is important to help mitigate early sequelae in some functional parameters. Expand
Imaging of nuclear factor jB activation induced by ionizing radiation in human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure of recombinant human embryonic kidney cells to ionizing radiation induces NF-jB-dependent DD-tdTomato expression and activation of NF- jB by the canonical pathway was found to be quicker than by the genotoxin- and stress-induced pathway. Expand
Cocaine-induced oxidative stress precedes cell death in human neuronal progenitor cells
TLDR
It is suggested that the increased oxidative stress (possibly mediated by inflammatory responses) precedes cell death in cocaine-exposed HNPC, which may have implications for the consequences of cocaine abuse in situations where antioxidant capacity is compromised, as in the aging brain. Expand

Reactive oxygen intermediates as apparently widely used messengers in the activation of the NF‐kappa B transcription factor and HIV‐1.
