    Objective To explore the association between the ACE, AGT gene polymorphism and hypertension disease complicated with cerebral infraction.Methods The ACE gene I/D polymorphism and the AGT gene M235T polymorphism were detected in a study of 664 cerebral infraction (CI) cases, 678simple essential hypertension (EH) cases and 716 control cases (C). The association of gene polymorphism and hypertension disease complicated with cerebral infraction is evaluated. Results The genotype frequencies of ACE-DD and AGT-TT in the CI group (0.309 and 0.643) were significantly higher than those in the control group (0.203 and 0.543) and EH group (0.217 and 0.569), respectively. The OR value of combining ACE-DD and AGT-TT of CI to the control group (2.547,95%CI : 1.919~3.382) is significantly higher than the OR value of single ACE-DD genotype (1.759,95%CI : 1.376~2.248) or single AGT-TT genotype(1.515, 95%CI : 1.220~1.880). Conclusions These results suggest that ACE-DD or AGT-TT variant is not associated with Chinese hypertensive patients, but is significantly associated with Chinese hypertensive patients complicated with cerebral infraction. ACE-DD and AGT-TT may have a synergistic effect on risk of hypertension disease complicated with cerebral infraction.

    Abstract:Objective To investigate the mobilization of bone marrow very small embryonic-like stem cells(VSEL-SCs) into peripheral blood (PB)and its ’recruitment to the infarcted brain tissues in focal cerebral ischemia mouse.Methods: MCAO model was induced by using the filament occlusion method.G-CSF, the CXCR4 specificity antagonist AMD3100 and combilation used were seperatedly injected to MACO model.Neurological scale were evaluated . The number of VSEL-SCs mobilized into PB was check by fluorescence-activated cell sorting analysis( FACS ) . The level of SDF-1 in plasma and cerebral tissue were checked by ELISA assay . Expression of SDF-1 in the regions of ischemia were checkd by immuncytochemistry. Results: the neurological scale of G-CSF treated group significantly diseaseed compared with the control group (P<0.05), AMD3100 showed no significantly effect.All three operated groups mobilized more VSEL-SCs into PB compared with the control group,the effective sequence is AMD300 combine with G-CSF, AMD300, G-CSF. The plasma SDF-1 density significantly incresed in G-CSF group at 72h and 108h (P<0.05)while AMD300 and A+G group show stronger effect at all three time point(24h,72h,108h). Positive correlation can be seen between the number of VSEL-SCs mobilized into PB and the SDF-1 plasma concentration .The SDF-1 level of cerebral tissue were significantly incresed in G-CSF group and the expression of SDF-1 in ischemia region were much stronger in G-CSF group and A+G group.Conclusion: G-CSF and AMD3100 mobilized VSEL-SCs in adult MACO mouse bone marrow into periphril blood. The mechanism of beneficial effects of G-CSF possibly related to increasement of SDF-1 expression in the infarcted tissues and recruitment of more VSEL-SCs through CXCR4/SDF-1 axis .

    Abstract Objective To investigate the migration tendency of the expanded γδ T cells toward colorectal cancer cells. Methods Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated by density gradient centrifugation and stimulated by immobilized T cell receptor (TCR) gd specific antibody in vitro for two weeks. The expanded cells underwent immunofluorescence staining and flowcytometry analysis or flow sorting. The cytokines and chemokines expressed by gd T cell were assayed using the Bioplex 200 Suspension Array System. The chemotaxis assays were performed in the transwell chambers. Results Those in vitro-expanded γδ T cells primarily expressed chemokine receptors CCR5 and CXCR3. CCR5 and CXCR3 ligands were detected in four different colorectal cancer cell lines and in ten cases of colorectal cancer. Upon TCR engagement, expanded γδ T cells produced large amounts of Th1 and Th2 cytokines, which further increased γδ T cell accumulation. It is noteworthy that the interferon γ (IFN-γ) produced by the γδ T cells markedly increased the expression of CXCR3 ligands in colorectal cancer cells, which further boosted the migration of the expanded γδ T cells. Conculsion Our data may provide important indications for the use of adoptive γδ T cell-based immunotherapy for the treatment of colorectal cancer.

Methods Construct the conditional target plasmid of PL253-CARP-LoxP and transfect to 129 embryonic stem cells. Positive clones selected by antibiotics of G418 and GANC were determined by Southern blot to confirm conditional disruption of CARP gene, and then were injected to the blastula. Chimeras were got and crossed with α-MHC-Cre transgenic mice, which expressed recombinase specifically in heart, and then the mice with cardiac deficiency of CARP gene (CARP-KO) will get. Results Six chimeras were got, and CARP-KO mice were got after crossing with α-MHC-Cre mice. CARP gene was disrupted in the heart of CARP-KO mice by semi-quantitative PCR and western blot. These mice displayed normal in embryonic development, body growth, and heart development. However the expression of hypertrophic markers of β-MHC and ANF increased significantly in CARP-KO mice. Conclusion: The mice model with specific disruption of CARP gene was generated successfully. The cardiac disruption of CARP gene did not interfere the development and growth of mice significantly, either for the heart development.

    Objective to explore the function of Sirt1 in drug resistance of CML(chronic myelogenous leukemia)K562 cells. Methods K562 cells stably expressing dominate negative Sirt1 (H363Y) or Sirt1 shRNA were treated with H2O2 and etoposide. Cleaved caspase3, Bax and γ-H2A.X signals were detected by Western blotting; MCF-7 and 293A cells overexpressing wild type Sirt1 were treated with H2O2 and etoposide. γ-H2A.X was detected by Western blotting. Results Sirt1-H363Y and Sirt1 shRNA expression in K562 cells could enhance the cleavage of caspase3 and the expression of Bax, but inhibit the formation ofγ-H2A.X induced by H2O2 and etoposide. On the contrary, overexpression of wild type Sirt1 in MCF-7 and 293A cells promotes the formation ofγ-H2A.X. Conclusion Sirt1 could enhance the drug resistance and signal for DNA repair in K562 cells.

    Objective To investigate the mechanism of the paracrine effect of phenytoin (PHT) and macrophage in the angiogenesis and ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI). Method The peritoneal macrophages were adherently cultured, and parts of cultured macrophages were pre-stimulated by PHT. The survival animals induced experimental ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) were randomly distributed into Sham group, control (AMI) group, Phenytoin (PHT) group group, macrophage (MΦ) group, phenytoin pre-stimulating macrophage (MΦ-PHT) group. At the 7th and 28th day after the induction of I/R, histology examination were analyzed including index of expansion, fiber area, arterioles density, capillary density in infarct region and cardiocyte cross-sectional area (CSA) in non-infarct zone. The levels of protein expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) within infarct region 7 days after MI were determined by Western blot. Result Compared with AMI group, Index of Expansion, fiber area and CSA in non-infarct zone at 28th day were all decreased in PHT group, MΦ group and MΦ-PHT group (P <0.05), while arteriole density in infarct zone had increased (P <0.05). Fiber area of MΦ-PHT group at 28th day was fewer than MΦ group (P <0.05). Compared with MΦ group, capillary density and arteriole density in infarct zone at 7th and 28th day had increasing tendency. The levels of VEGF, bFGF protein expression in infarct zone at 7th day in MΦ-PHT group were more than MΦ group (P <0.05). Conclusion Phenytoin may promote angiogenesis in infarct zone and improve ventricular remodeling after MI through stimulating macrophages, which up-regulate the growth factors involved in the angiogenesis through the paracrine effect.

    Abstract: Objective To establish a simple and efficient method for isolating and culturing vascular endothelial cells of rat thoracic aorta. Methods Under aseptic condition, the thoracic aorta was harvested from healthy male Wistar rat. After stripping off the adventitia, the thoracic aorta were cut into vessel rings with length of 1.0~1.5mm. The vessel rings were placed on culture dish vertically and filled with the culture medium DMEM/ F12 containing 10 % fetal bovine serum; After 24h, the vessel rings had attached on the culture dish firmly and some new culture medium were added; 3~4d later, the thoracic aorta was discarded and the new culture medium was added into the culture dish. The migrating cells were digested by 0.25 % pancreatic enzyme for serial subcultivation. The endothelial cells were identified by morphological, immunohistochemical and flow-cytometry methods with anti-vWF antibody, which was regarded as the marker of endothelial cells. Results A amount of cells migrated from the aorta and adhered to the bottom of culture dish 3~4d after cultivation. The confluent cells grew rapidly after being digested with 0.25% pancreatic enzyme and showed the typical cobblestone appearance. The cells were identified as endothelial cells, its positive ratio was (98.3±0.2)% by using immunostaining and flow-cytometry with vWF. Conclusion The modified explanting cultivation method for isolating and culturing was established in the this study. This method is simple, easy to handle and more economical and applicable as does not need collagen and endothelial cell growth promoting substrate. In addition, this modified method is especially suitable for isolation and cultivation of vascular endothelial cells from small arteries.

    ABSTRACT:X-box binding protein 1 is an important component of unfolded protein response.XBP-1 has two splicing variants that were designated XBP-1S and XBP-1U. The former activity is much higher than the latter. When the cell is on the condition of endoplasmic reticulum stress, XBP-1 is induced by ATF6,and spliced by IRE1,then the functional XBP-1S was transcripted, and activation of unfolded protein response. XBP-1 is an important transcription factor,it has an important regulatory role on cell growth and differentiation.XBP-1 is involved in the genesis,development of many diseases.

    The skin color of human is diversity, there is a direct relation between the number, magnitude, type, distribution of melanosome in melanocytes. The synthesis of melanin and the intercellular movement of melanin are complex and a precise process that determines the distribution and skin pigmentation. There are many factors influence the metabolism of skin melanin, that is tyrosinase, peroxidase, microelement, ultraviolet rays, structural proteins 17, protein receptor 2.
