c-Jun N-terminal kinase 1 promotes transforming growth factor-β1-induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition via control of linker phosphor...
We recently determined that TGF-β1-induced EMT in lung epithelial cells requires the presence of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) 1. Because TGF-β1 signals via Smad complexes, the goal of the present study was to determine the impact of JNK1 on phosphorylation of Smad3 and Smad3-dependent transcription...
Bifidobacterium bifidum BF-1 suppresses Helicobacter pylori-induced genes in human epithelial cells.
We have shown that preincubation with Bifidobacterium bifidum strain BF-1, a probiotic strain known to improve H. pylori-associated gastritis, suppresses induction of IL-8 by the pathogen. To investigate how how BF-1 affects gene expression in H. pylori-infected cells, we performed microarray analys...
[Potential of novel antimycobacterial immune factors, SLPI and lipocalin 2].
We demonstrate that secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) and lipocalin 2 are secreted into the alveolar space by alveolar macrophages and epithelial cells during the early phase of respiratory mycobacterial infection. SLPI kills mycobacteria by enhancing the membrane permeability, and lipoc...
Aberrant expression of vimentin correlates with dedifferentiation and poor prognosis in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
Of the 21 patients, 5 were classified as having tumours with vimentin-positive expression and 16 with vimentin-negative expression. Vimentin-positive expression was more frequent in tumour specimens that were poorly differentiated (4/7; 57%) than in those that were well- or moderately differentiated...
Trigger found that may start cancer's spread. Research may lead to new therapies to halt cancer's progression.
Immunohistochemical study of Langerhans cells in periapical lesions: correlation with inflammatory cell infiltration and epithelial cell pro...
Langerhans cells appeared to be associated with T-lymphocyte infiltration and the proliferative potential of the epithelial tissue in periapical lesions....
Drug-induced secondary cataract prevention: experimental ex vivo and in vivo results with disulfiram, methotrexate and actinomycin D.
A clinical approach to prevent secondary cataract after lens implantation involves the intraocular application of pharmacological agents. The goals of our study were to develop an ex vivo model to test the drug effectiveness for lens epithelial cell ablation from the basal membrane and to verify the...
Fast diagnosis of liver metastasis of adult granulosa tumor using fine needle aspiration cytology.
SNAI transcription factors mediate epithelial-mesenchymal transition in lung fibrosis
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a fatal interstitial lung disease characterised by accumulation of activated (myo)fibroblasts and excessive extracellular matrix deposition. The enhanced accumulation of (myo)fibroblasts may be attributed, in part, to the process of transforming...
[Effects of silencing transforming growth factor-beta1 by RNAi upon transdifferentiation of renal allograft tubular epithelial cells in rats...
Compared with Group H and Y, the mRNA transcription of TGF-beta1 was obviously inhibited in the Group T: at Month 3, the TGF-beta1 mRNA of Group T is 0.73 +/- 0.08, significantly lower than Group H and Y (0.92 +/- 0.07 and 0.95 +/- 0.04, both P < 0.01); the expression of E-cadherin was maintained at...
