    Objective To explore the role of Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinaseⅡ(CaMKⅡ) in the development of cerebral hypoxic preconditioning(HPC). Methods Healthy male BALB/c mice (weighting 18~22g, 8~10w) were randomly divided into 7 groups as follows: normoxic control (H0), early(H1-H4)and delayed (H5 and H6) hypoxic preconditioned mice groups. SDS-PAGE, Western blot and Gel Doc imagine systems were applied to quantitatively analyze the level of CaMKⅡ phosphorylation and protein expression level in the brain of mice. Results Compared with H0 group, the phosphorylation level of CaMKⅡ increased in cortex and hippocampus of mice in H3-H5 hypoxic preconditioned groups(P<0.05, n=6). However, there was no significant changes in total CaMKⅡprotein expression in cortex and hippocampus of hypoxic preconditioned mice. Similarly, enhanced p-Thr286 CaMKⅡwas also observed in the hippocampus and cortex of mice by immunostaining following hypoxic exposures (H3 and H6). Conclusion The increased phosphorylation of CaMKⅡ may involved in the development of cerebral HPC in mice.

    Objective: To test the hypothesis that IL-10 might be useful for promoting left ventricular remodeling and cardiac function by modulating extracellular matrix after acute myocardial infarction. Methods: Male adult rats were divided into three groups in random: control group (n=6), MI/AAV2 group (n=16) and MI/AAV2-IL-10 group (n=16). Establishing animal modol of experimental myocardial infarction and equal dose of recombinant adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV)/IL-10 (AAV2-rhIL-10) and AAV2 were injected around the ischemic zone. Echocardiography parameters, hemodynamic parameters, left ventricular mass index (LVMI), collagen volume fraction (CVF), perivascular circumferential area (PVCA), collagen type Ⅰ&Ⅲ volume fraction and mRNA levels of collagen type Ⅰ&Ⅲ, matrix metalloproteinases-2 (MMP-2) and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) were compared between the three groups. Results: Improved cardiac function was observed in MI/AAV2-IL-10 group both by echocardiography and hemodynamic examination. 4 weeks after myocardial infarction, thickness of different parts of LV was same in MI/AAV2-IL-10 group and MI/AAV2 group. Nevertheless CVF, PVCA, and collagen type I volume fraction was significantly descending in remote zone of MI/AAV2-IL-10 group compared with that of MI/AAV2 group, P<0.01. The mRNA expression of collagen type I and MMP-2 was lower in MI/AAV2-IL-10 group than that in MI/AAV2 group, P<0.05 and P<0.01 in turn. Conclusions: Recombinant IL-10 expression mediated by AAV2-rhIL-10 transfection of rats' myocardium contributes to promoting LV remodeling and cardiac function after acute myocardial infarction. The promotion was partially achieved by inhibition myocardium collagen deposition.

    Objective To construct three eukaryotic expression vectors containing wide-type hGHR gene and its mutants (hGHR-E42K、hGHR-H56R) related to Congenital Growth Hormone Insensitivity, then make sure these vectors are expressed stably in CHO cells. After hGH stimulation, we measured the expression of phosphorylated STAT5 in those cells. Methods With the available PUC-hGHR vector, other two mutate hGHR genes (hGHR-E42K,hGHR-H56R) were achieved by quick site-directed mutagenesis. Then three recombinants were cloned to eukaryotic expression vectors, pcDNA3.1/zeo(+) with restriction enzymatic reactions. Then with Lipofectamine2000, we transfected expression vectors to CHO cells and screened the stably expressed CHO cells by Zeocin. RT-PCR and/or Western Blotting were used to testify levels of hGHR and STAT5-P. Results After sequencing, two mutations were introduced to hGHR smoothly, three eukaryotic expression vectors identified. The transfected CHO cells expressed wt-hGHR or its mutants. Compared with hGH-wt, two mutate cells (E42K, H56R) had decreased phosphorylated STAT5 levels. Conclusion:Three CHO cells which stably expresses wide type hGHR and its mutants were successfully established, E42K, H56R partly interfered the phosphorylation of STAT5.

    Objective To investigate the effects of allogenic intra-bone marrow bone marrow transplantation ( IBM-BMT) on re-establishing hematopoiesis in mice. Methods Bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMNCs) from BALB/c mice were transplanted into the C57BL/6 mice treated with a lethal dose of 60Coγ-ray radiation either by intra-bone marrow injection or intravenous injection. Sixty of the C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into three groups as higher dose intra-bone marrow injection group (IBM1 group), lower dose intra-bone marrow injection group (IBM2 group) and intravenous injection group (IV group) with 20 in each group. The nucleated cell numbers of whole bone marrow from the tibia of each recipient mouse were counted respectively at the day 1, day 3, day 6 and day 9 after the transplantation. The numbers of donor-derived total nucleated cells and myeloid cells were further analyzed by flow cytometry. Results At 6th day after transplantation, the numbers of total bone marrow nucleated cells, total donor-derived nucleated cells and donor-derived myeloid cells in the tibia of injected side in both IBM1 group and IBM2 group were all significantly higher than those in IV group (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Conclusion Compared with traditional bone marrow transplantation (IV-BMT), IBM-BMT improves the bone marrow hematopoiesis in the early hematopoietic re-establishing stage in allogenic bone marrow transplantation.

    Objective to investigate the alleviative effects of lidocaine postconditioning on pulmonary injury following ischemia reperfusion. Methods 72 adult SD rats were randomized to 4 groups (n=18 for the each): sham group, ischemia-reperfusion group, ischemic postconditioning group and lidocaine postconditioning group. The pulmonary ischemia-reperfusion model was established by occlusion of the left hilum of lung for 45min and the reperfusion was taken by removing the clamp for 2h. At the moment of reperfusion, lidocaine 4mg/kg was injected in as a priming dose following a continuous rate of 4mg/kg·h. PaO2, TNF-α, W/D of left lung, the level of MDA of left lung tissue were measured. At the end of reperfusion left lung was removed for microscopic determination. Results Following reperfusion PaO2 of lidocaine group was much higher than that of I-R group(P<0.05). Lidocaine postconditioning induced a significant decrease in the level of MDA of lung tissue(7.03±1.17μmol/L) compared with ischemia reperfusion group ( 8.77±1.42μmol/L)(P<0.05).Lidocaine postconditioning resulted in a lower level of TNF-α(1.69±0.34μg/L)than that of I-R group(2.52±0.54μg/L)(P<0.05). Microscopic examination showed that lidocaine postconditioning could decrease the level of edema of left lung and accumulation of neutrophils. Conclusion Lidocaine postconditioning exerts a protective effect on pulmonary ischemia-reperfusion injury administered in the beginning of reperfusion. The effect may be related to the antioxidant effect and the suppression of expression of TNF-α.

    Objective To investigate the effect of IH764-3 on the leukocyte-mediated hypoxia-reoxygention injury of human brain microvascular endothelial cell (HBMVEC). Methods MTT assay was used to detect the survival of HBMVEC; gelatin zymography was used to analyze the activity of MMPs. The level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in leukocyte was determined via commercially available kit, and the indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to quantify the contents of TNF-α, IL-1α, IL-2 and INF-γ in leukocyte culture medium. Results Survival of HBMVEC was impaired by hypoxia-reoxygenation, and aggravated by supernatant of activated leukocytes, which was attenuated by IH764-3. Leukocytes produced high levels of MMP-9, ROS and cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1α, IL-2, IFN-γ) after suffered hypoxia-reoxygenation, which was inhibited by IH 764-3. Furthermore, IH 764-3 could effectively reverse hypoxia-reoxygenation injury of HBMVEC with supernatant of activated leukocytes. Conclusion IH764-3 can protect HBMVEC against leukocyte-involved hypoxia-reoxygenation injury by attenuating the activation of leukocytes and inhibiting the injury effects of leukocytes products.

    Objective To explore the effect of stroma cell-derived factor receptor CXCR4 on the homing of the hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells in utero transplantation. Methods CD34+ cells were separated by Ficoll density gradient centrifugation and MiniMACS and stimulated for 48h by SCF、IL-6 cytokines prior to transplantation. The changes of the CD184(CXCR4) expressions and transmigrate rates of the CD34+ cells were analysed by flow cytometer. The 1 105 cells pretreated with different treatment were transplanted into the abdominal cavity of the fetal BALB/c mouse in the pregnant days 13~14. The human CD45 cells as the marker of graft were detected by flow cytometry after 1 month the fetus born. Results Expression changes of CD184 on CD34+ cells were from 9.58% 1.56% to 19.32% 3.64% after SCF and IL-6 stimulation. The CD34+/CXCR4high cells exhibited significant increases in SDF-1 mediated chemotaxis compared with the CD34+/CXCR4low cells. Transmigration of CD34+/CXCR4high was inhibited by pretreatment with antiCXCR4mAb and PTX. The positive rates of human CD45 cells detected in the fetal mouse were significantly higher in the SCF and IL-6 pretreatment group. This effects were significantly abrogated after the addition of antiCXCR4mAb or PTX. Conclusion Up-regulation of CXCR4 expression may be useful for improving hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells homing in utero transplantation. This homing process is mediated and depended on the CXCR4 receptors. The signal transduction is mediated by PTX-sensitive Gi protein.

    Objective To investigate the acute effect of apolipoprotein E(apoE)on the intracellular free Ca2+ in rat cortical neurons. Methods The intracellular resting calcium level in cultured primary rat cortical neurons was measured by using confocal fluorescent imaging technique. MK-801, an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor noncompetitive antagonist, was employed to test whether NMDA receptor was implicated in the effect of apoE4. Results Acute application of apoE4, but not apoE3, significantly increased the resting [Ca2+]i in a dose- and time-dependent manner (P<0.01 or P<0.05), and MK-801 partly blocked the apoE4-induced elevation of resting [Ca2+]i (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Conclusion ApoE4 acutely disturbs calcium homeostasis, and the activation of NMDA receptor may play a critical role in the intracellular calcium overload induced by apoE4 and its neurotoxicity.

It had received significant attention for its potential application as a male antifertility agent. Then it was used to treat female hormone-dependent diseases,for instance, endometriosis,hysteromyoma,uterine bleeding and dysmenorrheal. Further researches showed that gossypol has multiple biological activities,such as anti-inflammatory,antimalarial,antiviral antioxidant activities and so on,especially the ability to induce tumor cell apoptosis.

    Many tumorigenesis in human are closely linked to the functional loss of P53. The tumor-suppressive functions of P53 are abrogated by mutations, but in 50% of all tumors remains wild type. In these cases, loss of P53 tumor-suppressive function mainly results from the abnormal methylation of 5' CpG islands of tumor suppressor genes such as INK4a, ARF and ASPP. Restoring to normal methylation state of these genes may provide new means for tumor therapeutics.

    The wnt/β-catenin signal transduction pathway is an access regulating cell proliferation, movement, differentiation and plays crucial roles in embryo development. The researchers have found that Wnt pathway is an important regulation factor in the early stimulation of the cardiogenesis and contacts closely the several key events during cardiac morphogenesis. The article reviews the recent studies about the relation between cardiac development and Wnt pathway in early embryo.
