BACKGROUND: Phosphodiesterases (PDE) are a superfamily of enzymes that hydrolyse cyclic nucleotides (cAMP/cGMP), signal molecules in transduction pathways regulating crucial aspects of cell life. PDEs regulate the intensity and duration of the cyclic nucleotides signal modulating the downstream biological effect. Due to this critical role associated with the extensive distribution and multiplicity of isozymes, the 11 mammalian families (PDE1 to PDE11) constitute key therapeutic targets...

Although allergic inflammation is characterized by a T helper (Th) 2-dominant immune response, the discovery of a role for new T cell subsets in inflammatory diseases has added an additional layer of complexity to the understanding of the pathogeneses of allergic diseases. We evaluated plasma cytokine profiles in infants with cows' milk allergy (CMA), who were being treated with an elimination diet. In a prospective, randomized and controlled study, infants (aged 8.4 ± 3.9 months) with CMA were treated with an elimination diet for 120 days, which replaced cows' milk with a hydrolysed soy protein formula (n = 26) or a free amino acid formula (n = 20)...

In solid tumors, hypoxia (lack of oxygen) is developed, which leads to the development of resistance of tumor cells to chemotherapy and radiotherapy through various mechanisms. Nevertheless, hypoxic cells are particularly vulnerable when glycolysis is inhibited. For this reason, in this study, the development of magnetically targetable nanocarriers of the sodium-glucose transporter protein (SGLT2) inhibitor dapagliflozin (DAPA) was developed for the selective delivery of DAPA in tumors. This nanomedicine in combination with radiotherapy or chemotherapy should be useful for effective treatment of hypoxic tumors...

This study investigated the effect of different concentrations of porcine plasma protein hydrolysates (PPPH) on the gelation of porcine myofibrillar protein (MP) exposed to a hydroxyl radical-generating system (HRGS). Compared to non-oxidized MP, the oxidative modification led to a decreased penetration force and water holding capacity (WHC) (P<0.05). Meanwhile, addition of PPPH (1.5mg/mL) reduced the loss of MP gel strength and WHC induced by HRGS (P<0.05). Low-field nuclear magnetic resonance results suggested that the addition of PPPH facilitated the hydration of the protein...

Islet cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes is primarily attributed to the increased apoptosis of pancreatic beta cells. Silk fibroin hydrolysate (SFH) has an effect on blood in type 2 diabetes model mice (C57BL/KsJ-db/db). However, its exact mechanism is unknown. The type 2 diabetes model mice were randomly divided into non-diabetic mice (ND), diabetic mice (DB), and diabetic mice treated with silk fibroin hydrolysate (DB-SFH). The results showed that SFH significantly decreased fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)...

The bodies and faecal pellets of the house dust mite (HDM), Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, are the source of many allergenic and nonallergenic proteins. One of these, the 14-kDa bacteriolytic enzyme LytFM, originally isolated from the spent HDM growth medium, may contribute to bacteriolytic activity previously detected by zymography at 14 kDa in the culture supernatants of some bacterial species isolated from surface-sterilised HDM. Based on previously reported findings of lateral gene transfer between microbes and their eukaryotic hosts, we investigated the presence of lytFM in the genomes of nine Gram-positive bacteria from surface-sterilised HDM, and the expression by these isolates of LytFM and its variants LytFM1/LytFM2...
