Nlrp3 is a vital integration point of diverse extracellular stimuli and cellular stress. However, inappropriate activation of Nlrp3 results in progression of autoinflammatory and metabolic disorders. Atrazine, using widely in agricultural sector, is a toxic environmental factor for human. Here, this study found that atrazine could induce oxidative stress and the expression of Nfkb and IRF1 in spleen, promoting the ox-mtDNA formation. And production and release of ox-mtDNA stimulated the Nlrp3 in...

Adlay (Coix lachryma-jobi L. var. ma-yuen Stapf) seeds have been used in Asia for thousands years to treat warts, chapped skin, rheumatism, and neuralgia. The anti-allergic activity of dehulled adlay (DA) seeds was identified, and the bran (AB) is regarded as the main functional constituent in the edible part. However, no study has focused on in vivo acute anti-allergic airway inflammation. In the present report, we investigated DA methanolic extract (DAM) reversed ovalbumin (OVA)/methacholine (...

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) has been widely applied in nutritional supplementation. However, when administered individually or mixed, they were unable to maximize their nutritional value. Hence, EPA-rich medium- and long-chain triacylglycerol (MLCT) was synthesized from MCT and EPA-rich fish oil (FO) by enzymatic transesterification. The fatty acids in triglyceride (TAG) were rearranged and resulted in significant changes in TAG profiles compared to physical m...

Mung bean coat (MBC) is a good source of dietary fibre and phenolic compounds with medical properties, and can alleviate metabolic diseases. In the present study, the effects of MBC on high fat diet (HFD)-induced hyperlipidemia mice were evaluated, and the underlying mechanisms of MBC against hyperlipidemia from hepatic transcriptional analysis were explored. Four groups of mice were fed a normal control diet or a HFD with or without MBC supplementation (6%, w/w) for 12 weeks. The results demons...

The transmission of certain bacteria from the mother's gut to the infant's gut via breast milk (BM) is critical for offspring's immune system development. Dysbiosis of the BM microbiota can be caused by a variety of reasons, which can be influenced by probiotics delivered via the enteromammary route. The goal of this study was to investigate the bacterium that can be transmitted from mother to infant's intestine during various lactation periods in 19 mother-child dyads. Bacterial transmission is...

Dendritic cells (DCs) represent a heterogeneous family of immune cells that link innate and adaptive immunity, their activation is linked to metabolic changes that are essential to support their activity and function. Hence, targeting DCs metabolism represents an opportunity to modify the inflammatory and immune response. Among natural matrices, Humulus lupulus (Hop) compounds has recently shown immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory activity. This study aims to evaluate the ability of specific ...

Stimulating fat thermogenesis and modulating gut microbiota is a promising therapeutic strategy against obesity. Zeaxanthin (ZEA), a plant pigment that belongs to carotenoids, has been shown to prevent various diseases, but the therapeutic mechanism for obesity remains unclear. The purpose of the current study was to verify whether ZEA could improve obesity by activating β3-adrenergic receptor (β3-AR) to stimulate white adipose tissue (WAT) thermogenesis and modulating gut microbiota. C57BL6/N m...

Inflammatory pain is a complex condition that has a major negative impact on post-injury quality of life. Recently, astaxanthin treatment in mice has been shown to relieve the development and maintenance of inflammatory pain through its effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. However, the specific mechanisms underlying these effects remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the mechanism by which astaxanthin alleviated inflammation using complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA...

Lung cancer is a common cancer with high mortality worldwide, and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for the majority. The clinical treatment effect of NSCLC is not ideal. The aim of this study was to investigate the inhibitory effect of sea cucumber peptide (SCP) on NSCLC and its mechanism. The results showed that SCP could effectively inhibit the proliferation, migration and invasion of A549 cells. In addition, SCP can also inhibit the formation of pleural effusion and tumor growth in...
