Objective: To investigate the effect of Δ40p53, an alternative spliced isoform of p53 lacking the N-ter minus, on the pro-apoptotic function of p53. Methods: The wild-type p53 was ectopically expressed in HCT116-p53(-/-) (endogenous Δ40p53 expression), HCT116-p53(+ /+) (wild-type p53) and H1299 (p53-null) cells by adenoviral delivery, while Δ40p53 plasmid were transfected into these cells to overexpress Δ40p53. The levels of Δ40p53 and p53 mRNA were detected by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and quantitative PCR...

The chemistry of the 5,7-dihydro-6H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-6-one (1,3-diazaoxindole) compound family, possessing a drug-like scaffold, is unexplored. In this study, the alkylation reactions of N(7)-unsubstituted 5-isopropyl-1,3-diazaoxindoles bearing various substituents at the C(2) position have been investigated. The starting compounds were synthesized from the C(5)-unsubstituted parent compounds by condensation with acetone and subsequent catalytic reduction of the 5-isopropylidene moiety. Alkylation of the thus obtained 5-isopropyl derivatives with methyl iodide or benzyl bromide in the presence of a large excess of sodium hydroxide led to 5,7-disubstituted derivatives...

Pediatric-onset systemic lupus erythematosus arises in humans and mice lacking the endonuclease Dnase1L3. When Dnase1L3 is absent, DNA from circulating apoptotic bodies is not cleared, leading to anti-DNA antibody production. Compared to early anti-DNA and anti-chromatin responses, other autoantibody responses and general immune activation in Dnase1L3(-/-) mice are greatly delayed. We investigated the possibility that immune activation, specifically inflammasome activation, is regulated by Dnase1L3. Here, we report that Dnase1L3 inhibition blocked both NLR family, pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3) and NLRC4 inflammasome-mediated release of high-mobility group box 1 protein and IL-1β...

A class of N-(naphthalen-1-yl)-N'-alkyl oxalamides have been proven to be powerful ligands, making a coupling reaction of (hetero)aryl iodides with primary amines proceed at 50 °C with only 0.01 mol % of Cu2O and ligand as well as a coupling reaction of (hetero)aryl bromides with primary amines and ammonia at 80 °C with only 0.1 mol % of Cu2O and ligand. A wide range of coupling partners work well under these conditions, thereby providing an easy to operate method for preparing (hetero)aryl amines.

Whether the effect of miR-181a is sexually dimorphic in stroke is unknown. Prior work showed protection of male mice with miR-181a inhibition. Estrogen receptor-α (ERα) is an identified target of miR181 in endometrium. Therefore we investigated the separate and joint effects of miR-181a inhibition and 17β-estradiol (E2) replacement after ovariectomy. Adult female mice were ovariectomized and implanted with an E2- or vehicle-containing capsule for 14d prior to 1h middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). Each group received either miR-181a antagomir or mismatch control by intracerebroventricular injection 24h before MCAO...

Radioiodine uptake in the thyroid tissue, metastasis of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), and in other tissues, depends on the expression of sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). Vascular permeability, effusions, inflammation, and other mechanisms may also play a role in the accumulation of radioactive iodine. A 63-year-old woman underwent radioiodine therapy, as well as a post-therapy whole-body scan,as she was suspected of having lung metastasis from thyroid carcinoma. The scan not only showed uptake at the lung metastasis but also a faint diffuse bilateral uptake in the posterior thorax...

Marsdenia tenacissima (MT), a traditional Chinese medicine, has been utilized in the treatment of a variety of malignant conditions for decades, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Angiogenesis, new blood vessel formation by nearby endothelial cells (ECs) from pre-existing vessels, plays a key role in cancer growth. In the present study, the effects of MT extract (MTE) on EC proliferation and apoptosis in vitro, and on A20 mouse lymphoma growth and angiogenesis in vivo were investigated. MTE exhibited an anti-proliferative effect on the ECs, with a half maximal inhibitory concentration of 11...
