OBJECTIVES: Contemporarily, a highly increasing attention was paid to nanoconstructs, particularly DNA nanostructures possessing precise organization, functional manipulation, biocompatibility and biodegradability. Amongst these DNA nanomaterials, tetrahedral DNA nanostructures (TDNs) are a significantly ideal bionanomaterials with focusing on the property that can be internalized into cytoplasm in the absence of transfection. Therefore, the focus of this study was on investigating the influence of TDNs on the chondrocytes locomotion...

OBJECTIVES: Graphene oxide (GO), the derivative of graphene with unique properties, has attracted much attention for applications in dental implants. The aim of this study was, by two biomimetic cell culture methods, to investigate the quantitative relationship between the concentration of pristine GO nanosheets and their cellular behaviours towards bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The cells were firstly characterized according to their morphology, self-renewal capabilities and multipotency...

OBJECTIVES: Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. Increasing levels of visfatin are correlated with worse clinical prognosis of NSCLC. However, the effects of visfatin on drug resistant are still not well illustrated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Effects of visfatin on drug resistant cells were checked by CCK-8 kit. Gene and protein variations were measured by real-time PCR and western blot analysis, respectively. RESULTS: Our present data confirmed that expression of visfatin was significantly increased in NSCLC cells and tissues...

OBJECTIVES: The spatial proximity of adipose depots to secondary lymph nodes allows a unique relation between the two systems. Obesity, predominately visceral adiposity, links to numerous diseases; hence, we postulate that secondary lymphatics within this region contributes to disease risk. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Male C57BL/6 mice were fed standard CHOW (18% kcal fat) or Western diet (45% kcal fat) for 7 weeks. Visceral and subcutaneous lymph nodes and associated adipose depots they occupy were excised...

OBJECTIVES: Investigate the role of the transient receptor potential melastatin 4 (TRPM4) channel in rat dental pulp stem cell (DPSC) proliferation and survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Immunofluorescence and FACS analysis were used to detect the stem cell marker CD90. Alizarin Red S and Oil Red O staining were used to identify osteoblast and adipocyte differentiation, respectively. To characterize TRPM4, patch-clamp recordings were obtained from single cells in the whole-cell configuration mode...

OBJECTIVES: Progesterone (P4) has the potential therapeutic effects for traumatic brain injury (TBI) whose recovery depended on the enhanced angiogenesis. Endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) plays an essential role in vascular biology. We previously demonstrated that P4 administration improved circulating EPC level and neurological recovery of rat with TBI. Here, we hypothesized that P4 augmented angiogenic potential of EPC and the angiogenesis-related neurorestoration after TBI through classical progesterone receptor (PR)...

OBJECTIVES: Poor cell survival severely limits the beneficial effect of adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC)-based therapy for disease treatment and tissue regeneration, which might be caused by the attenuated level of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) in these cells after having been cultured in 21% ambient oxygen in vitro for weeks. In this study, we explored the role of pre-incubation in dimethyloxalylglycine (DMOG, HIF-1 activator) in the survivability of human ADSCs in a simulated ischaemic microenvironment in vitro and in vivo...

OBJECTIVES: The function of the dental pulp is closely connected to the extracellular matrix (ECM) structure, and ECM has received significant attention due to its biological functions for regulating cells. As such, the interaction between the ECM niche and cells is worth exploring for potential clinical uses. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, dental pulp stem cell (DPSC)-derived ECM (DPM) was prepared through cell culture and decellularization to function as the cell niche, and changes in DPSC behaviour and histological analysis of dental pulp tissue regeneration were evaluated following the DPM culture...

OBJECTIVES: Lidocaine is the most commonly used local anaesthetic in clinical and can inhibit proliferation, suppress invasion and migration and induce apoptosis in human lung adenocarcinoma (LAD) cells. However, its specific downstream molecular mechanism is unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: LAD cell lines, A549 and H1299 cells, were treated with lidocaine. The proliferation was evaluated by the methylthiazolyldiphenyl-tetrazolium bromide (MTT) and bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) assay...

OBJECTIVES: Foetal bovine serum (FBS) is often the serum supplement of choice for in vitro human cell culture. This study compares the effect of FBS and autologous human serum (AuHS) supplement in human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) culture to prepare secretome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The PBMC (n = 7) were cultured either in RPMI-1640 containing L-glutamine and 50 units/ml Penicillin-Streptomycin (BM) or in BM with either AuHS or FBS. Viability, proliferation and differentiation of PBMC were evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: The reprogramming of cancer cells into induced pluripotent stem cells or less aggressive cancer cells can provide a modern platform to study cancer-related genes and their interactions with cell environment before and after reprogramming. Herein, we aimed to investigate the reprogramming capacity of murine melanoma B16F10 cells.

OBJECTIVES: Ubiquitin specific protease 32 (USP32) is a highly conserved but uncharacterized gene, which has been reported to be associated with growth of breast cancer cells. However, the role of USP32 in human small cell lung cancer (SCLC) has not been uncovered. The aim of this study was to investigate and evaluate the clinical significance of USP32 in patients with SCLC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Expression of USP32 was firstly investigated using public online data sets and then determined in SCLC tissues and cell lines using quantitative real-time PCR, Western blotting and immunohistochemical staining...

OBJECTIVE: Aberrant activation of Wnt/β-catenin signalling contributes significantly to the development of human colorectal cancers and β-catenin is the key signalling molecule transducing canonical Wnt/β-catenin signalling. Therefore, β-catenin is a promising therapeutic target for cancer treatment. This study demonstrates that the oncogenic IKKε kinase phosphorylates β-catenin to restrain its hyper activation, therefore promoting colorectal cancer (CRC) cell proliferation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: IKKε and β-catenin expression levels in human colorectal cancer tissues and cell lines were analysed by immunohistochemical staining and Western blotting...

OBJECTIVES: Cells in the osteon reside in a curved space, accordingly, the curvature of the microenvironment is an important geometric feature in bone formation. However, it is not clear how curved microstructures affect cellular behaviour in bone tissue.

OBJECTIVES: Bioactive peptides derived from receptor binding motifs of native proteins are a potent source of bioactive molecules that can induce signalling pathways. These peptides could substitute for osteogenesis promoting supplements. The work presented here compares three kinds of bioactive peptides derived from collagen III, bone morphogenetic protein 7 (BMP-7) and BMP-2 with their potential osteogenic activity on the model of porcine mesenchymal stem cells (pMSCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: pMSCs were cultured on electrospun polycaprolactone nanofibrous scaffolds with different concentrations of the bioactive peptides without addition of any osteogenic supplement...
