• DNA damage-induced by sodium flouride (NaF) and the effect of cholicalciferol
  • Abstract It is known that the high electronegativity of fluorine affects various soft tissues, especially the bone structure in organisms. Of these tissues are the kidneys, which play an important role in the excretion of fluoride from the body. Fluoride affects many cellular mechanisms. One of these effects is DNA damage. Our study aimed to investigate the likely protective effect of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) on genomic DNA damage-induced NaF depending on concentration and time. The IC25 and IC50 values of NaF for 3, 12 and 24 h and optimum dose of increase in proliferation to vitamin D3 through MTT assay in… More

  • Association of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF1α) 1772C/T gene polymorphism with susceptibility to renal cell carcinoma/prostate cancer
  • Abstract In this study, we used a meta-analysis method to evaluate the relationship between hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF1α) 1772C/T gene polymorphism (rs 11549465) and renal cell carcinoma (RCC)/prostate cancer risk. We searched for relevant studies (before March 1, 2019) on Cochrane Library, Embase, and PubMed. Studies meeting the inclusion criteria were recruited into this meta-analysis. The outcome of dichotomous data was showed in the way of odds ratios (OR), and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were also counted. In this investigation, there was no association between HIF1α 1772C/T gene polymorphism and susceptibility to RCC in Caucasians, Asians as well as overall populations. In… More

  • Age-related modifications of macrophages influenced by “inflammageing” in graft vs. host disease
  • Abstract Most studies focus on the adaptive immune cells in the GVHD pathogenesis, while little is known about innate immune cells in GVHD occurrence and development, especially macrophages. Meanwhile, a higher incidence of graft versus host disease (GVHD) is also found in the elderly patients. Though advances have been made in the modification of macrophages influenced by the inflamm-ageing, there is still no review on the role of macrophages in GVHD and the association between GVHD and the altered macrophages by inflamm-ageing. In this review, we focus on the potential age-related modifications of macrophage in GVHD, which contributes to the change… More

  • Exogenous dendritic cells aggravate atherosclerosis via P-selectin/ PSGL-1 pathway
  • Abstract Studies have found that a large number of inflammatory cells, P-selectin, and mature dendritic cells (DCs) are expressed in the damaged and shoulder parts of atherosclerotic plaque, which demonstrates that P-selectin and mature DCs participate in the immune inflammatory response leading to the development of atherosclerosis. However, it is unclear how the above factors interact in this setting. In this study, we investigated the role of P-selectin and its receptor, P-selectin glycoprotein ligand (PSGL)-1 in atherosclerosis, with the finding that DC surface marker expression was consistently high in the P-selectin group while consistently low in the PGSL-1 + DCs group,… More

  • Detection of new antibiotic resistance gene profile in Escherichia coli associated with avian leukosis virus infection from broiler chickens
  • Abstract The Escherichia coli (E. coli) is prevailing worldwide, but the epidemiology of E. coli infections feature regional distribution characteristics to some extent. E. coli, as a zoonotic pathogen, can be transferred from animals to humans through food chain or via contact with wounds, causing a public health risk. We reported the swelling of proventriculus and tracheal bleeding following the death in two broiler chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) from Beijing, China. To investigate whether a virus was involved in the infection, Madin Darby Bovine Kidney (MDCK) cells were co-cultured with supernatants of proventriculus, trachea and spleen homogenates. The avian leucosis virus… More
