    Objective: Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is a stress-inducible enzyme with diverse cytoprotective effects, and is reported a role for angiogenesis rencently. We investigated whether HO-1 transduced by MSCs can induce angiogenic effects in infracted myocardium. Methods HO-1 was transfected into cultured MSCs using an adenoviral vector. 1×106 Ad-HO-1-transfected MSCs (HO-1-MSCs) or Ad-Null-transfected MSCs (Null-MSCs) or PBS was respectively injected into rat hearts 1 h intramyocardially after myocardial infarction. Results HO-1-MSCs was able to induce stable expression of HO-1 in Vitro and Vivo. The capillary density and expression of angiogenic growth factors,VEGF and FGF2, were significantly enhanced in HO-1-MSCs-treated hearts compared with Null-MSCs-treated and PBS-treated hearts. However, the angiogenic effects of HO-1 in HO-1-MSCs group could be abolished by treating the animals with HO inhibitor, zinc protoporphyrin. The myocardial apoptosis was marked reduced with significantly reduced fibrotic area in HO-1-MSCs-treated hearts; Furthermore, the cardiac function and remodeling were also significantly improved in HO-1-MSCs-treated hearts than in the other two groups. Conclusion HO-1 modification with MSCs reduces the apoptosis of myocardium and preserves cardiac function and remodeling, and that this is associated with siginficant angiogenesis.

    Objective To investigate the effect of Rhein lysinate (RHL), cisplatin and their combination on the proliferation, apoptosis of lung cancer A549 cells, and to provide theoretical foundation for cisplatin combined with RHL against human lung cancer. Methods The lung cancer A549 cells in logarithm growth phase were selected as the research object, and were randomly divided into four groups: blank control group, cisplatin group, RHL group and combination groups. MTT assay was used to detect A549 cell proliferation and flow cytometry was used to analyze cell apoptosis in various groups after 48 h. The expression levels of protein associated with apoptosis and protein of ERK were detected after 48 h by Western blotting. Results Cell proliferation was inhibited and cell apoptosis was induced in groups of cisplatin and RHL, but there was a significant reduction in proliferation and a significant increase in apoptosis in A549 cells treated with a combination of cisplatin and RHL compared with cisplatin or RHL treatment alone (P<0.05, respectively). The expressions of cleaved caspase-3, caspase-7 and poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) in combination groups were higher than those of either agent alone group after 48 h cell culture in A549 cells, whereas the expression of BCL-2 was lower than those of either agent alone group and the expressions of BAX was higher than those of either agent alone group. Moreover, RHL could downregulate the phosphorylation of ERK induced by cisplatin. Conclusion RHL potentiates the cisplatin-induced cytotoxicity and apoptosis by reducing the activation of ERK and increasing the levels of cleaved caspase-3, caspase-3 and PARP.

    Objective To investigate proteasome inhibitor MG132 whether or not to reduce or slow down the renal tubule-interstitium during diabetic nephropathy (DN). Methods The diabetic rat model(DM) was established by injecting Streptozotocin(STZ) (n = 10). Meanwhile, ten rats were grouped into normal control group (NC). After 24 weeks, the rats were sacrificed to detect relevant biochemical parameters, and to observe the changes of pathomorphology of kidney and pancreas as well. NRK-52E cells were cultured in vitro, to be pre-treated with different doses MG132 cultured in high glucose. In addition, immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence staining, Western blotting were employed to detect the protein expression of Smad7, Smad ubiquitin regulatory factor 2(Smurf2), E-cadherin (E-cadherin) and α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and fibronectin (FN), collagen-Ⅰ (Col-1)in the renal tissue and NRK-52E cells. Results Compared with NC group,the expression of E-cadherin decreased and α-SMA increased in DM group (P <0.05). In DM group, the expressions of FN and Col-1 in renal interstitium were increased (P < 0.05), while the protein expression of Smad7decreased (P <0.05),but Smurf2 was increased (P <0.05). In vitro, MG132 inhibited the protein expressions of α-SMA and Col-Ⅰby a dose-dependent manner which were induced by high glucose in NRK-52E cells (P <0.05), but it had no effect with the protein expression of Smurf2.In contrary, MG132 increased the protein expression of Smad7 and E-cadherin (P <0.05). Conclusion MG132 inhibited the protein degradation of Smad7 which high glucose-mediated, could reduce the development of the renal tubule-interstitium, this may be one of the mechanisms that MG132 could treat DN.

    Objective To investigate the effects of atorvastatin on myocardial apoptosis and mitofusin 2(Mfn2) expression after acute myocardial infartion(MI) in rats. Methods A total of 48 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into sham-operated group, myocardial infartion(MI) group, statin group 1 and group 2. The rats in the two statin groups were given atorvastatin 10 mg?kg-1 or 40 mg?kg-1 daily, respectively. The rats in the MI and statin groups were induced acute myocardial infartion. 24 hours after operation, the MI areas of rat hearts were harvested, and myocardial apoptosis was assessed by in situ terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase(TdT)-dUTP nick-end labeling(TUNEL staining). Immunohistochemistry staining and western blotting were performed to measure the expression of Mfn 2 and phosphorylated Akt(p-Akt) . Results On the 24 hours after operation, compared with those of the sham group, the myocardial apoptosis and Mfn2 protein expression of the MI groups remarkably increased(p<0.01). Compared with those of the MI group, myocardial apoptosis and Mfn2 protein expression of statin groups significantly decreased with a slightly dose-dependent manner(p<0.05). Conclusion Atorvastatin attenuates myocardium apoptosis after acute myocardial infarction in rats, which may relate to down-regulated expression of mitofusin 2.

    Objective This study aims to investigate the potential roles of autophagy induced by ischemia in effecting on expression of Bim and caspase-3 and tries to clarify the regulation of HIF-1 in this process. Methods We employed simulated anoxia of neonatal rat ventricular myocytes as an in vitro model of ischemia injury to the heart. Cardiac myocytes were exposed to 0,2,4,8,14 and 24h anoxia. Cardiac myocytes were pretreated with 10mmol/L 3-Methyladenine (3MA) to inhibit autophagy. The beating rate and arrhythm of myocardial cells were detected by inverted microscope. The activity of lactate dehydrogenase was determined by automatic biochemistry analyzer. Western blot analysis was used to examine variation in the expression of LC3-II/I (a marker of autophagy),Bim,caspase-3and HIF-1. Results As the beating rate of myocardial cells was slightly decreased, and the cell arrhythm was increased (P<0.05) after inhibition autophagy; the activity of lactate dehydrogenase was increased (P<0.05)when inhibiting autophagy. Moreover, significant autophagy was reduced by pretreating with 3-Methyladenine (3MA) in anoxia, and the expression of Bim and caspase-3 was significantly increased (P< 0.05). The expression of HIF-1was increased significantly in anoxia group and reduced in anoxia+3MA group (P< 0.05). Conclusion Inhibition of autophagy constitutes a powerful and previously uncharacterized apopotosis induced by anoxia in cardiac myocytes via upregulating the pro-apopototic protein Bim and caspase-3. And HIF-1 positively regulated the process of autophagy induced by anoxia.

    Objective To retrospectively analyze the clinical data of clinically silent pheochromocytoma in 29 cases in order to improve its diagnosis and treatment. Methods 29 patients were diagnosed pathologically as adrenal pheochromocytoma from May 2010 to May 2013, who were considered clinically silent and operated in Peking Union Medical College Hospital. We summarized the aspects include patient age, tumor location and maximal diameter, operation method, change of intraoperative blood pressure(BP), urinary catecholamine and the nuclear medicine examinations. Results Each of the 29 patients had a normal BP, and the results of urinary catecholamine were normal or elevated lightly. The maximal diameter of tumors were 1.5~14cm. 1 case was located in both side, while 13 cases in the right and 15 cases in the left. 25 were operated laparoscopically, and the other 4 underwent open operations. BP was stable in all the 23 cases who were given cardula, while 2 of 6 cases who were not given cardula had hypertensive crisis. 11/23 cases had false negative results in somatostatin receptor imaging, while 1/11 cases had a false negative result in 131IMIBG imaging. Conclusions Urinary catecholamine and somatostatin receptor imaging are not sensitive to clinically silent pheochromocytoma. 131IMIBG imaging is necessary to the cases who are highly suspicious in CT imaging. Surgical treatment should be carried out on the basis of correct drug preparation once the correct diagnosis is made.

    Dedifferentiation is an important life phenomenon in cell biology, which can be observed both in vivo and in vitro. The cells resulting from the dedifferentiation have the characteristics of undifferentiated cells. The process of dedifferentiation involving cell autophagy, recirculation of cells structure and a series of biological behavior is complex. More and more studies demonstrate the close relation between cell dedifferentiation and cell renewal, tissue regeneration and tumorigenesis, etc.

    The Hippo-yap pathway is a newly growth regulatory pathway and regulate both cell growth and apoptosis, aberrant signaling pathway contribute to tumorigenesis. YAP protein is also involved in the mediate AKT-mTORC, WNT and MAPK signaling pathways, thereby affecting tumor cell growth, invasion and metastasis. YAP protein expression is increased in many types of human tumors, perhaps to become new therapeutic targets of tumor.

    The leprosy village, a product of the special historical period, has made prominent contributions to the prevention and cure of leprosy. With the development of prevention and treatment, the number of the new-onset leprosy patients has decreased remarkably, so the rehabilitation therapy of the convalescents becomes the key work of leprosy village. In the summer of 2012, 28 studets at Grade 2008 of Department of Clinical Medicine, Peking Union Medical College, carried out a social practice in Taixing leprosy village, Jiangsu Province. In the survey, it has been found out that the rehabilitation mode of leprosy village in which all patients are insulated from the rest of society does have some drawbacks, the worst of which is the physical and psychological health of the convalescents couldn’t develop in a healthy way. Therefore, improving the rehabilitation mode and enhancing social humanistic concern should be a new developmental direction of the leprosy village.
