Qian Li et al.
Experimental cell research, 388(1), 111718-111718 (2019-12-25)
Successful implantation happens only when the development of a competent blastocyst synchronized with the differentiation of a receptive uterus. The exact mechanism affecting embryo implantation competency is still unclear. Previous data from our laboratory showed that several members of the
Cecilia S Blengini et al.
Aging cell, 20(11), e13489-e13489 (2021-10-28)
A hallmark of advanced maternal age is a significant increase in meiotic chromosome segregation errors, resulting in early miscarriages and congenital disorders. These errors most frequently occur during meiosis I (MI). The spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) prevents chromosome segregation errors
Alin García-Miranda et al.
Frontiers in cell and developmental biology, 9, 644851-644851 (2021-03-26)
Autophagy is an intracellular recycling process active in eukaryotic cells that involves the formation of an autophagosome which delivers cytoplasmic components to the lysosome for degradation. This process occurs at low rates under basal conditions, but it can be induced
Wong Yau Hsiung et al.
Evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine : eCAM, 2011, 293060-293060 (2011-03-23)
The anticancer potential of Leea indica, a Chinese medicinal plant was investigated for the first time. The crude ethanol extract and fractions (ethyl acetate, hexane, and water) of Leea indica were evaluated their cytotoxicity on various cell lines (Ca Ski
T L Freeman et al.
Biochemical pharmacology, 68(2), 223-230 (2004-06-15)
Activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) involves the induction of ECM protein synthesis and rapid cell proliferation. Thus, agents that interfere with either process could potentially mitigate the development of liver disease by reducing the synthesis of proteins associated with
Barbara Zonta et al.
Neuron, 69(5), 945-956 (2011-03-09)
The axon initial segment (AIS) is critical for the initiation and propagation of action potentials. Assembly of the AIS requires interactions between scaffolding molecules and voltage-gated sodium channels, but the molecular mechanisms that stabilize the AIS are poorly understood. The
Simona Giunta et al.
The Journal of cell biology, 190(2), 197-207 (2010-07-28)
The signaling cascade initiated in response to DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) has been extensively investigated in interphase cells. Here, we show that mitotic cells treated with DSB-inducing agents activate a "primary" DNA damage response (DDR) comprised of early signaling events
Xiaolong Sun et al.
Acta histochemica, 122(8), 151649-151649 (2020-11-10)
As one of the most frequent diabetic complications, diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) can cause limb ischemia or even amputation. Paeoniflorin (PF) has been reported to possess many kinds of biological functions, such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. However, the role
Enriqueta Garcia-Gutierrez et al.
PloS one, 11(3), e0150687-e0150687 (2016-03-02)
The metabolism of S. Typhimurium within infected host cells plays a fundamental role in virulence since it enables intracellular proliferation and dissemination and affects the innate immune response. An essential requirement for the intracellular replication of S. Typhimurium is the
Pablo Garcia-Valtanen et al.
Viruses, 12(5) (2020-05-28)
White adipose tissue (WAT) produces interleukin-10 and other immune suppressors in response to pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs). It also homes a subset of B-cells specialized in the production of IL-10, referred to as regulatory B-cells. We investigated whether viral stimuli
Jifu Mao et al.
ACS nano, 11(10), 10409-10416 (2017-09-08)
The poor mechanical properties and processability of pristine heterocyclic conductive polymers represent the most notable scientific and technological challenges that have greatly limited the application of these polymers. We report a soft and mechanically processable free-standing pristine polypyrrole (PPy) membrane
Natsumi Shimizu et al.
International journal of hematology, 87(3), 239-245 (2008-03-05)
Although coculture of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) with stromal cells is a useful system to study hematopoiesis in the niche, little is known regarding the precise cellular and molecular mechanisms of maintaining HSCs through cell-cell interactions. The murine preadipose stromal
Hisashi Miura et al.
Nucleic acids research, 37(3), 778-792 (2008-12-17)
Mammalian tissue- and/or time-specific transcription is primarily regulated in a combinatorial fashion through interactions between a specific set of transcriptional regulatory factors (TRFs) and their cognate cis-regulatory elements located in the regulatory regions. In exploring the DNA regions and TRFs
Carlos Mendoza-Palomares et al.
Eukaryotic cell, 7(4), 684-697 (2008-02-19)
Cysteine proteases have been shown to be essential virulence factors and drug targets in trypanosomatids and an attractive antidisease vaccine candidate for Trypanosoma congolense. Here, we describe an important amplification of genes encoding cathepsin B-like proteases unique to T. congolense.
Qian Li et al.
Reproductive sciences (Thousand Oaks, Calif.), 27(5), 1164-1174 (2020-01-17)
Microarray has indicated a huge number of miRNAs exist in reproductive tissues and cells. Moreover, the expression of miRNA in the reproductive system varies under the strict monitoring of different regulations. To understand the role of miRNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene regulation
Ming-Fo Hsu et al.
Redox biology, 36, 101658-101658 (2020-08-10)
Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a major health problem and a significant cause of liver-related death. Currently, the mainstay for ALD therapy is alcohol abstinence highlighting the need to develop pharmacotherapeutic approaches. Protein-tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is an established regulator
Michelle Griffin et al.

Non-unions pose complications in fracture management that can be treated using electrical stimulation (ES). Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) are essential in fracture healing; however, the effect of different clinical ES waveforms on BMMSCs cellular activities remains unknown. We

PloS one, 6(9), e24584-e24584 (2011-09-21)
Through negative regulation of gene expression, microRNAs (miRNAs) can function as oncosuppressors in cancers, and can themselves show altered expression in various tumor types. Here, we have investigated medulloblastoma tumors (MBs), which arise from an early impairment of developmental processes
