Abstract null null KCNQ-encoded (KV7) potassium channels are diversely distributed in the human tissues, associated with many physiological processes and pathophysiological conditions. These channels are increasingly used as drug targets for treating diseases. More selective and potent molecules on various types of the KV7 channels are desirable for appropriate therapies. The recent knowledge of the structure and function of human KCNQ-encoded channels makes it more feasible to achieve these goa...

Abstract null null Apelin is an endogenous ligand of G protein-coupled receptor APJ. Apelin/APJ system is widely expressed in abundant tissues, especially bone, joint and muscle tissue. This review focus on the effects of apelin/APJ system on locomotor system. An increasing number of evidence suggests that apelin/APJ system plays a crucial role in many physiological and pathological processes of locomotor system. Physiologically, apelin/APJ system promotes bone formation, muscle metabolism and s...
Abstract null null Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative joint disease blamed for pain and disability in the elderly. Galangin (GAL) is a natural flavonoid that exhibits anti-inflammatory properties in various inflammation diseases. However, the role of GAL in OA remains unclear. In this study, we investigate the role of GAL in the progress and development of OA in vitro and vivo. The results showed that IL-1β exposure resulted in increased expression of iNOS, COX-2, MMP1, MMP3, MMP13 and...

Gliquidone was suggested to exert hypoglycemic effect through enhancing hepatic insulin sensitivity. However, inadequate in vivo evidences make this statement controversial. The aim of the present study was to clarify the insulin-sensitizer role of gliquidone in liver and muscle, so as to confirm its extra-pancreatic effects in vivo. TALEN technique was used to create Sur1 knockout (Sur1-/-) rats. Diabetic Sur1-/- rat models were established by high-fat diet combined with streptozotocin, and whi...

Amino-2-Trifluoromethyl-Phenyl Retinate (ATPR), a novel all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) derivative, has been demonstrated that it had a variety of anti-tumor effects by exerting regulation on cellular proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation. Here, we found that ATPR is critical for alleviating myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myelogenous leukemia. USO1, vesicle transport factor, belongs to tether protein family and involved in endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi trafficking of protein whi...

Abstract null null Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common pancreatic inflammation associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. AP may be mild or severe which can spread systemically causing multiple organs failure (MOF) and even death. In the current study, protocatechuic acid (PCA), a natural phenolic acid, was investigated for its possible protective potential against L-arginine induced AP and multiple organs injury (MOI) in rats. AP was induced by L-arginine (500 mg/100 g, ip). Two dose ...

Abstract null null Peroxisomal biogenesis factor 5 (PEX5) is a member of peroxisome biogenesis protein family which serves as a shuttle receptor for the import of peroxisome matrix protein. The function of PEX5 on cardiomyocyte hypertrophy remained to be elucidated. Our study demonstrated that the protein expression level of PEX5 was declined in primary neonatal rat cardiomyocytes treated with phenylephrine (PE) and hearts from cardiac hypertrophic rats induced by abdominal aortic constriction (...
Abstract null null An undescribed anthraquinone assigned as 1-Hydroxy-5,5-dimethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-9,10-anthraquinone (compound 1) was isolated from ethylacetate extract of Juglans regia L. The structure of the compound was established on the basis of 1D, 2D NMR (HSQC, HMBC, COSY), ESI-QTOF-MS/MS spectroscopy. The molecular docking studies of compound 1 indicated similar molecular interactions as that of co-crystalized inhibitor. Compound 1 showed hydrogen bonds with residues PHE295, GLY121, ...

Abstract null null The invention of immunotherapy, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for advanced-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), has become a new standard of care for a defined group of NSCLC patients. However, the possible impacts of ICI interactions with analgesics for alleviating cancer-related pain are unclear and lack clinical evidence. Many studies have indicated that opioids detrimentally affect the immune system, possibly harming patients of ongoing immunotherapy. Op...

Abstract Sepsis-induced cardiac dysfunction (SICD) is one of the key complications in sepsis and it is associated with adverse outcomes and increased mortality. There is no effective drug to treat SICD. Previously, we reported that tubeimoside I (TBM) improved survival of septic mice. The aim of this study is to figure out whether TBM ameliorates SICD. Also, SIRT3 was reported to protects against SICD. Our second aim is to confirm whether SIRT3 plays essential roles in TBM's protective effects a...
