  1. Assessing in vitro stem-cell function and tracking engraftment of stem cells in ischaemic hearts by using novel iRFP gene labelling.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 18(9):1889 (2014) PMID 24912616 PMCID PMC4162818

    We expressed iRFP in mouse cardiac progenitor cells (CPC) by lentiviral vector and demonstrated that the iRFP-labelled CPC (CPC(iRFP)) can be detected by flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy. We observed a linear correlation in vitro between cell numbers and infrared signal intensity by using t...
  2. Inhibitory effects of hydrogen sulphide on pulmonary fibrosis in smoking rats via attenuation of oxidative stress and inflammation.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 18(6):1098 (2014) PMID 24629044

    We established a rat model of passive smoking and investigated whether or not H2 S has protective effects against pulmonary fibrosis induced by chronic cigarette smoke exposure. Rat lung tissues were stained with haematoxylin-eosin and Masson's trichrome. The expression of type I collagen was detect...
  3. Analysing the relationship between lncRNA and protein-coding gene and the role of lncRNA as ceRNA in pulmonary fibrosis.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 18(6):991 (2014) PMID 24702795

    We selected two differentially expressed lncRNAs MRAK088388 and MRAK081523 to explore their regulatory mechanisms. MRAK088388 and MRAK081523 were analysed as long-intergenic non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs), and identified as orthologues of mouse lncRNAs AK088388 and AK081523, respectively. qRT-PCR and in...
  4. Matrix metalloproteinase inhibition attenuates right ventricular dysfunction and improves responses to dobutamine during acute pulmonary thr...

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(12):1588 (2013) PMID 24199964 PMCID PMC3914650

    We examined whether doxycycline (a MMP inhibitor) improves right ventricle function and the cardiac responses to dobutamine during APT. APT was induced with autologous blood clots (350 mg/kg) in anaesthetized male lambs pre-treated with doxycycline (Doxy, 10 mg/kg/day, intravenously) or saline. Non-...
  5. Investigation into the prevalence of a novel dendritic-like cell subset in vivo.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(12):1608 (2013) PMID 24251878 PMCID PMC3914640

    A novel dendritic-like cell subset termed L-DC was recently identified in murine spleen based on marker expression of a homogeneous cell population derived from long-term culture of neonatal spleen. The function of L-DC is distinct from other splenic dendritic and myeloid cell subsets because of the...
  6. The role of macrophages polarization in predicting prognosis of radically resected gastric cancer patients.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(11):1415 (2013) PMID 24283947 PMCID PMC4117554

    We evaluated the correlation between the two forms of TAM with survival time in radically resected gastric cancer patients. A total of 52 chemo- and radio-naive patients were included. Two slides were prepared for each patient and double-stained for CD68/NOS2 (M1) or CD68/CD163 (M2) and five represe...
  7. Cell adhesion and mechanical stimulation in the regulation of mesenchymal stem cell differentiation.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(7):823 (2013) PMID 23672518 PMCID PMC3741348

    We summarize a number of recent studies on how cell adhesion and mechanical cues influence the differentiation of MSCs into specific lineages. Understanding how chemical and mechanical cues in the microenvironment orchestrate stem cell differentiation may provide new insights into ways to improve ou...
  8. The sepsis model: an emerging hypothesis for the lethality of inhalation anthrax.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(7):914 (2013) PMID 23742651 PMCID PMC3729634

    We propose that death in inhalation anthrax results from an overwhelming bacteraemia that leads to severe sepsis. According to our model, the central role of anthrax toxin is to permit the vegetative bacteria to escape immune detection. Other forms of B. anthracis infection have lower mortality beca...
  9. Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphisms and promoter methylation in cervical oncogenic lesions and cancer.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 17(4):543 (2013) PMID 23444906 PMCID PMC3822654

    The aim of this study was to investigate the role of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphisms and MTHFR methylation pattern in cervical lesions development among women from Romania, a country with high prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) cervical infections. To achieve this goa...
  10. Anticancer activities of genistein-topotecan combination in prostate cancer cells.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 16(11):2631 (2012) PMID 22452992

    Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death in men aged 40 to 55. Genistein isoflavone (4', 5', 7-trihydroxyisoflavone) is a dietary phytochemical with demonstrated anti-tumour activities in a variety of cancers. Topotecan Hydrochloride (Hycamtin) is an FDA-approved chemotherapy drug, prim...
