    Objective To investigate the effects of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α) inhibitor YC-1 on hypoxia induced human pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (HPASMCs) proliferation, apoptosis and the expression of p53, and explore the molecular mechanism in the processes. Method HPASMCs were cultured in DMEM medium supplemented with 10%FBS in vitro. Then divided them into four groups: normoxia, hypoxia and hypoxia+YC-1(0.01 and 0.05mmol/L). Cells proliferation was measured by CCK-8, and the apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry. The expression of HIF-1α and p53 were tested by Western Blot, and the mRNA expression of p53 was tested by RT-PCR. Results Hypoxia can promote the proliferation of HPASMCs. Treatment of HPASMCs with different concentrations of YC-1 intervention for 24h obviously dropped proliferation rate (P<0.05), and the apoptosis rate increased significantly (P<0.05). YC-1 can also down-regulate the expression of HIF-1α and up-regulate the expression of p53 significantly (P<0.05). Conclusion YC-1 can inhibit hypoxia-induced HPASMCs proliferation and promote apoptosis, and the mechanism probably related to the up-regulation of p53 expression.

    Objective To investigate the effect of estrogen(E2) on different age rat groups of Parkinson’s disease(PD) models induced by Rotenone and its mechanism. Methods 24-month-old SD rats(high age group)and 12-week-age SD rats(low age group)were divided into control group (saline), Rotenone treatment group(Rotenone 2mg/kg), Estrogen treatment group(Rotenone 2mg/kg and E2 1mg/kg)and Tamoxifen treatment group(Rotenone 2mg/kg, E2 1mg/kg and Tamoxifen 1mg/kg). Behavior tests were carried out to observe the change of movement function, Immunohistochemistry and Western blot were used to assess the changes of TH and LC-3.HPLC-ECD was used to detect possible changes of monoamine neurotransmitters in striatum. Results (1)Rotenone reduced significantly high age rat’s rotarod latencies, and prolonged the climbing pole time(P<0.05). E2 ameliorated this effect, Tamoxifen could reduce the effect of E2. (2)Rotenone significantly reduced the number of TH positive cells in high age rats(P<0.05) , E2 could partly restore TH positive cell loss, and Tamoxifen could reduce this effect of E2, so did the expression of TH protein. (3)Rotenone increased the expression of LC-3(P<0.05), E2 did not affect the expression of LC-3, so did Tamoxifen. (4)Rotenone significantly decreased the level of DA and its metabolite DOPAC(P<0.05), elevated the level of 5-HT,especially in high rats(P<0.05). E2 downregulated the influence, and Tamoxifen could reduce the effect of E2. (5)Rotenone increased the number of autophagosomes, but E2 increased the proportion of autolysosomes/autophagosomes. Conclusions High age rat PD model was more reliable. Estrogen promoted autophagy mature, and had obvious therapeutic effect on rat PD model induced by rotenone.
