This study aimed to investigate the cell cycle arrest and autophagy induced by iron overload inMC3T3-E1 cells. MC3T3-E1 cells were cultured in different concentrations of ferric ammonium citrate (FAC), and Perls' Prussian blue reaction was used to detect the iron levels of the cells. CCK-8 assays were used to detect the growth of MC3T3-E1. The level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within cells was investigated with DCFH-DA. PI staining was used to analyze the cell cycle distribution of MC3T3-E1 cells. Finally, the expression levels of cell cycle related proteins, autophagy related proteins, AKT, p38 MAPK, Stat3 and their downstream proteins were detected with western blot assays...

Three-dimensional (3D) cancer models are overlooking the scientific landscape with the primary goal of bridging the gaps between two-dimensional (2D) cell lines, animal models and clinical research. Here we describe an innovative tissue engineering approach applied to colorectal cancer (CRC) starting from decellularized human biopsies in order to generate an organotypic 3D-bioactive model. This in vitro 3D system recapitulates the ultrastructural environment of native tissue as demonstrated by histology, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence and scanning electron microscopy analyses...

Endogenous peptides recently attract increasing attention for their participation in various biological processes. Their roles in the pathogenesis of human hypertrophic scar remains poorly understood. In this study, we used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry to construct a comparative peptidomic profiling between human hypertrophic scar tissue and matched normal skin. A total of 179 peptides were significantly differentially expressed in human hypertrophic scar tissue, with 95 upregulated and 84 downregulated peptides between hypertrophic scar tissue and matched normal skin...

The present study was conducted to characterise the transporter(s) responsible for the uptake of cyclic nucleotides to human erythrocytes. Western blotting showed that hRBC expressed OAT2 (SLC22A7), but detection of OAT1 (SLC22A6) or OAT3 (SLC22A8) was not possible. Intact hRBC were employed to clarify the simultaneous cyclic nucleotide egression and uptake. Both these opposing processes were studied. The Km -values for high affinity efflux was 3.5 ± 0.1 and 39.4 ± 5.7 µM for cGMP and cAMP, respectively...

Whether environmental (thermal, chemical, and nutrient) signals generate quantifiable, nanoscale, mechanophysical changes in the cellular plasma membrane has not been well elucidated. Assessment of such mechanophysical properties of plasma membrane may shed lights on fundamental cellular process. Atomic force microscopic (AFM) measurement of the mechanical properties of live cells was hampered by the difficulty in accounting for the effects of the cantilever motion and the associated hydrodynamic force on the mechanical measurement...

BACKGROUND: Transplantation of autologous mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may be a viable option for treatment of several diseases. MSCs efficacy depends on adequate function of their mitochondria, which might be impaired in a noxious milieu. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that obesity compromises MSCs mitochondrial structure and function, possibly via micro-RNA (miRNA)-based mechanisms. METHODS: MSCs were collected from swine abdominal adipose tissue after 16 weeks of Lean or Obese diet (n = 7 each)...

Breast cancer is indisputably a heterogeneous disease, in which a formidable combination of definitely dis-regulated C-MYC and microRNA (miRNA) profiles along with other factors are responsible to generate a specific type of breast cancer. C-MYC as a master regulator of more than 20,000 genes can modify the expression of genes underlying to perform diverse conflicting functional frameworks. The functional spectra of miRNA in the new areas of the evolution of cell behaviors are identified. Here, we endeavor to summarize some recent advances of miRNA applications that can be recruited as combinatorial targeted therapy for patients with breast cancer...

Breast cancer is an important cause of cancer related mortality in women. Despite extensive efforts to identify valid biomarkers for risk stratification, there are relatively few with proven clinical utility. It is recognized that genetic factors play a major role in determining susceptibility to breast cancer. Recent genome-wide-association-studies and gene expression analysis have demonstrated that a locus on chromosome 9p21, which contains three genes; CDKN2B (encoding p15ink4b), CDKN2A (encoding p16ink4a and p14ARF) and the 3' end of CDKN2BAS [an antisense noncoding RNA in the INK4 locus (ANRIL)] are associated with an increased risk of this malignancy...

Bcl-2 homologous antagonist/killer (BAK1) is a critical regulator of mitochondrial apoptosis. Although upregulation of BAK1 induces apoptosis has been established, the underlying molecular mechanism is far from clear. 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DIDS), an organic anion used as a blocker of anion exchangers and chloride channels, has been proved to rescue cell apoptosis both in vitro and in vivo. However, whether DIDS can inhibit BAK1-induced mitochondrial apoptosis remains undefined. Thus, this study aimed to explore whether DIDS could protect BAK1-induced apoptosis through GSK3β/β-catenin signaling pathway...

In this study, we isolated mesenchymal stromal (stem) cells (MSCs) from broncho-alveolar lavage fluid (BAL) of 2-6 week-old commercial pigs. BAL-MSCs displayed fibroblastic morphology and possessed self-renewal properties. Similar to bone-marrow MSCs, BAL-MSCs expressed mesenchymal markers and both cell types lacked the expression of hematopoetic markers. BAL-MSCs, when cultured in differentiation induction media, differentiated into adipocytes, osteocytes and chondrocytes. Next, we examined if BAL-MSCs have the ability to treat lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute lung injury (ALI) in a pig model...

Numerous studies have shown that Astragalus polysaccharide (APS) has strong antioxidant effects and high practical value for preserving semen at low temperatures in vitro. However, to date, little attention has been paid to the precise mechanism of APS in sperm preservation at 4 °C. Thus, to gain further insight into the protective effects of APS, the present study was performed to assess the changes in sperm quality parameters, antioxidant capacity, ATP content and protein phosphorylation levels. Here, we demonstrated that supplementation with APS could effectively preserve boar sperm quality parameters such as sperm motility, acrosome integrity and mitochondrial membrane potential...

SIRT7 is a member of the sirtuin family of proteins that are known to be associated with tumor development. However, the functional roles and molecular mechanisms underlying the function of SIRT7 in breast cancer cell survival and tumor development remain unclear. Recent studies demonstrated that SIRT7 is upregulated in breast cancer cells and tissues. In the present study, we systematically explored the roles of SIRT7 in the growth of breast cancer cells and tumors both in vitro and in vivo. Our results showed that SIRT7 plays a major role in facilitating cell survival by promoting cell proliferation and inhibiting apoptosis...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary tumor of the liver and the sixth most common lethal cancer worldwide. Recent evidences demonstrated that oxidored nitro domain containing protein 1(NOR1), a putative tumor suppressor gene, is overexpressed in human HCC tissues. However, the role of NOR1 in HCC development remains unclear. Here, we described that NOR1 protein level is elevated in HCC and is associated with poorer clinical outcome. However, ecotopic overexpression of NOR1 protein in human HCC cell line HepG2 cells had no effect on cells proliferation, migration and clonality...

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between interleukin-6 (IL-6) and NS5ATP9 in autophagy of liver cancer cells. Autophagy is one of the important regulators of the replication of hepatitis C virus and the survival of tumors. IL-6 is a multifunctional cytokine that plays an important role in autophagy and development of many kinds of tumors. However, the role of IL-6 in autophagy has not been fully explored. A previous study had shown that a novel gene, NS5ATP9, could modulate autophagy. The present study demonstrated that human IL-6 recombinant protein induced autophagy of HepG2 cells...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), also known as stromal mesenchymal stem cells, are multipotent cells, which can be found in many tissues and organs as bone marrow, adipose tissue and other tissues. In particular MSCs derived from Adipose tissue (ADSCs) are the most frequently used in regenerative medicine because they are easy to source, rapidly expandable in culture and excellent differentiation potential into adipocytes, chondrocytes and other cell types. Acetylcholine (ACh), is one of the most important neurotransmitter in central (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS), playing important roles also in non-neural tissue, but its functions in MSCs are still not investigated...

Cudratricusxanthone A (CTXA), a natural bioactive compound extracted from the roots of Cudraniatricuspidata Bureau, is known to possess antithrombotic, antiproliferative and antiinflammatory activities. It remains unclear that CTXA can improve hepatoprotective activity in vivo. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of CTXA on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced liver failure in mice, and to elucidate its underlying molecular mechanisms. Liver failure was induced by LPS (15 mg/kg, i.p.) in mice, and 12 h later, they were treated intravenously with CTXA...
