  1. The Kazal motifs of RECK protein inhibit MMP-9 secretion and activity and reduce metastasis of lung cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6B):2781 (2008) PMID 18194466 PMCID PMC3828891

    RECK is a membrane-anchored glycoprotein which may negatively regulate matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity to suppress tumor invasion and metastasis. In this study, recombinant proteins corresponding to the residues 285-368 (named as CKM which contained cysteine knot motif), 605-799 (named a...
  2. Influence of collagen type II and nucleus pulposus cells on aggregation and differentiation of adipose tissue-derived stem cells.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6B):2812 (2008) PMID 18266957 PMCID PMC3828894

    Tissue microenvironment plays a critical role in guiding local stem cell differentiation. Within the intervertebral disc, collagen type II and nucleus pulposus (NP) cells are two major components. This study aimed to investigate how collagen type II and NP cells affect adipose tissue-derived ste...
  3. Localization of the low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor p75 in human limbal epithelial cells.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6B):2799 (2008) PMID 19210757 PMCID PMC3828893

    Biological effects of nerve growth factor (NGF) are mediated through receptors known as nerve growth factor receptors (NGFR), which include p75 and TrkA. This study was initiated after identifying NGFR as an up-regulated gene in the limbus by cDNA microarray analysis and we postulate that its ex...
  4. Role of endogenous bone marrow cells in long-term repair mechanisms after myocardial infarction.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6B):2867 (2008) PMID 19210759 PMCID PMC3828898

    Homing and regenerative potential of endogenous bone marrow cells (BMC) in myocardial infarction (MI) is a controversial issue. Using human placental alkaline phosphatase (hPLAP) as genetic marker for cell tracking, we examined the influx of bone marrow-derived cells during tissue repair after t...
  5. Deguelin inhibits retinal neovascularization by down-regulation of HIF-1alpha in oxygen-induced retinopathy.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6A):2407 (2008) PMID 18208562

    Retinal neovascularization is the most common cause of blindness; Retinopathy of pre-maturity (ROP) for children and diabetic retinopathy for young age group. ROP still remains as the most serious cause of vision loss in children. We provided that deguelin significantly reduces retinal neovascul...
  6. Expression of survivin protein in pterygium and relationship with oxidative DNA damage.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6A):2372 (2008) PMID 18266976

    Ultraviolet radiation is known to cause oxidative DNA damage and is thought to be a major factor implicated in the pathogenesis of pterygium. Among all the photo-oxidative DNA products, the 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is regarded a sensitive and stable biomarker for evaluating the degree of...
  7. Adipose stem cells for intervertebral disc regeneration: current status and concepts for the future.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6A):2205 (2008) PMID 18298653

    New regenerative treatment strategies are being developed for intervertebral disc degeneration of which the implantation of various cell types is promising. All cell types used so far require in vitro expansion prior to clinical use, as these cells are only limited available. Adipose-tissue is a...
  8. Amyloid-beta oligomers set fire to inflammasomes and induce Alzheimer's pathology.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6A):2255 (2008) PMID 18793350

    Genetic and molecular studies have confirmed the central role of amyloid-beta production and fibrillation in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the pathological pathways from amyloid-beta peptide oligomerization to the major pathological hallmarks of AD, such as neurofibrilla...
  9. Contractility in health and disease.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6A):2157 (2008) PMID 19120699

  10. The induction of bone formation by smart biphasic hydroxyapatite tricalcium phosphate biomimetic matrices in the non-human primate Papio ursinus.

    Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine 12(6B):2609 (2008) PMID 18363843 PMCID PMC3828877

    Long-term studies in the non-human primate Chacma baboon Papio ursinus were set to investigate the induction of bone formation by biphasic hydroxyapatite/p-tricalcium phosphate (HA/beta-TCP) biomimetic matrices. HA/beta-TCP biomimetic matrices in a pre-sinter ratio (wt%) of 40/60 and 20/80, resp...
