Abstract null null Exploration of long-term in vivo effects of nanomaterials, particularly those with potential biomedical applications, is quite important for better understanding and evaluating their biosafety. Selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) has been considered as a good candidate in biomedical applications due to its high bioavailability, considerable biological activity, and low toxicity. However, its long-term biological effects and biosafety remain unknown. Our previous study demonstrated ...
Abstract null null Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE, EC synthesized by endothelial cells and responsible for the regulation of blood pressure was purified from the bovine lung with affinity chromatography method. The purification rate of the ACE of the bovine lung was calculated as 1748- fold. Optimum pH and optimum temperature for the purified ACE were found to be 7.6 and 35–40 °C, respectively. The purity and molecular weight of the ACE were designated with SDS-PAGE. The ACE was fo...

The reproductive toxicity of endocrine-disrupting chemicals has become a matter of great concern. However, the potential toxicological mechanism of typical environmental estrogens, bisphenol A (BPA) and genistein (GEN), on adult ovary remains ambiguous. In this study, we used laying hens as the experimental model and aimed to clarify the effect of long-term exposure to safe reference doses of BPA and GEN on adult ovary. Results demonstrated that 1/10 no-observable-adverse effect-level dose (1/10...

The transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2) is a key molecule for SARS-CoV-2 invading human host cells. To provide insights into SARS-CoV-2 infection of various human tissues and understand the potential mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 infection, we investigated TMPRSS2 expression in various normal human tissues and SARS-CoV-2-infected human tissues. Using publicly available datasets, we performed computational analyses of TMPRSS2 expression levels in 30 normal human tissues, and compared them between...

Lanthanide ions (Ln3+) doped hydroxyapatite (HAP) particles are well established in biomedical areas. Although Ln elements are closely located in the periodic table and have plenty of similar characteristics, the minor differences in the effective ionic radii could cause alterations in the physicochemical and biological properties of HAP substitutes. The present study synthesized lanthanum-(La-) and gadolinium-(Gd-) doped HAP particles (La-HAP and Gd-HAP). And the effects of two types of particl...

Dichloromethane (DCM), a widely used chlorinated solvent, is classified by IARC (2017) as probably carcinogenic to humans. Exposure to DCM has been associated with increased incidence of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) in humans. This study aimed to investigate how DCM could contribute to CCA development by investigating the effects of DCM on DNA damage and cell transformation in cholangiocytes (MMNK-1) and on metastatic potential as measured by invasion and cell migration in malignant CCA cell lines (...

Abstract null null Neglected diseases are a group of transmissible diseases that occur mostly in countries in tropical climates. Among this group, Chagas disease and leishmaniasis stand out, considered threats to global health. Treatment for these diseases is limited. Therefore, there is a need for new therapies against these diseases. In this sense, our proposal consisted of developing two series of compounds, using a molecular hybridization of the heterocyclic isatin and thiazole. The isatin a...

Abstract Chagas disease causes more deaths in the Americas than any other parasitic disease. Initially confined to the American continent, it is increasingly becoming a global health problem. In fact, it is considered to be an "exotic" disease in Europe, being virtually undiagnosed. Benznidazole, the only drug approved for treatment, effectively treats acute-stage Chagas disease, but its effectiveness for treating indeterminate and chronic stages remains uncertain. Previously, our research group...

Nuclear factor-kappa B, involved in inflammation, host immune response, cell adhesion, growth signals, cell proliferation, cell differentiation, and apoptosis defense, is a dimeric transcription factor. Inflammation is a key component of many common respiratory disorders, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiectasis, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Many basic transcription factors are found in NF-κB signaling, which is a member of the Rel protein family...

Sepsis triggers liver dysfunction with high morbidity and mortality. Here, we elucidated the effect of anemoside B4 on sepsis in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced mouse model and LPS-induced primary hepatocytes. Following CLP surgery, septic mice were intraperitoneally injected with anemoside B4 (50 or 100 mg/kg). Anemoside B4 improved septic mouse survival rate, decreased serum AST and ALT levels and attenuated liver histopathologic damages. Western blot analysis showed that anemoside B...
