ABSTRACT

Objective:To study the inhibitory effect of CPT combined with 5-Fluorouracil (5-Fu), Oxaliplatin(L-OHP) on gastric carcinoma cells in vitro. Methods:MGC823 and SGC7901 gastric carcinoma cell lines were selected for culture and passage. The two cell lines were distributed into blank control group, CPT group, 5-Fu group, L-OHP group, 5-Fu+ CPT group and L-OHP+ CPT group. The blank control group was not given any drugs, CPT group was given CPT 1 000 μg/ml 2-fold dilution until 0.004 μg/ml; 5-Fu group was given 5-Fu 2.5×10 6 ng/ml 10-fold dilution until 2.5×10 -4 ng/ml; L-OHP group was given L-OHP 1 000 μg/ml 2-fold dilution up to 0.002 μg/ml; 5-Fu+ CPT group was given 5-Fu step concentration 2.5×10 6 ng/ml 10-fold dilution up to 2.5×10 -8 ng/ml, and combined with CPT 300 ng/ml; L-OHP+ CPT group was given a 2-fold dilution of L-OHP step concentration 1 000 μg/ml up to 0.24 μg/ml and combined with CPT 300 ng/ml. The inhibition effect of cells after drug action was detected. The 50% inhibitive concentration (IC 50) of medicines and the synergistic effect of the combined drugs were analyzed. The measurement data were expressed as Mean ± standard deviation ( Mean± SD), and the t-test was used for comparison between groups. Results:The inhibition rate of 5-Fu+ CPT group was significantly higher than that of 5-Fu group, the differences in MGC823 and SGC7901 cell lines were statistically significant ( P=0.002, 0.009). The inhibition rate of L-OHP+ CPT group was also significantly higher than that of L-OHP group, the differences in MGC823 and SGC7901 cell lines were statistically significant ( P=0.037, 0.040). Compared with 5-Fu+ L-OHP group, IC 50 value of 5-Fu+ CPT group and L-OHP+ CPT group decreased significantly, the differences in MGC823 and SGC7901 cell lines were statistically significant (all P<0.001). The survival fraction of 5-Fu and L-OHP combined with CPT on the two cell lines was lower than 70%, which was estimated by Weeb coefficient. Conclusions:The combination of 5-Fu, L-OHP and CPT can significantly improved the inhibitory effect on MGC823 and SGC7901 cell lines. 5-Fu, L-OHP and CPT had good synergistic effect.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Gastric cancer is a highly metastatic malignant tumor, often characterized by chemoresistance and high mortality. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the role of B-cell lymphoma 3 (Bcl-3) protein on cell migration and chemosensitivity of gastric cancer.MATERIALS AND METHODS: The gastric cancer cell lines, AGS and NCI-N87, were used for the in vitro studies and the in vivo studies were performed using BALB/c nude mice. Western blotting, wound healing assay, Cell Counting Kit-8 assay, immunohistochemistry, and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling assay were used to evaluate the role of Bcl-3 in gastric cancer.RESULTS: We found that the protein expression of hypoxia (HYP)-inducible factor-1α and Bcl-3 were markedly upregulated under hypoxic conditions in both AGS and NCI-N87 cells in a time-dependent manner. Interestingly, small interfering RNA-mediated knockdown of Bcl-3 expression affected the migration and chemosensitivity of the gastric cancer cells. AGS and NCI-N87 cells transfected with si-RNA-Bcl-3 (si-Bcl-3) showed significantly reduced migratory ability and increased chemosensitivity to oxaliplatin, 5-fluorouracil, and irinotecan. In addition, si-Bcl-3 restored the autophagy induced by HYP. Further, the protective role of si-Bcl-3 on the gastric cancer cells could be reversed by the autophagy inducer, rapamycin. Importantly, the in vivo xenograft tumor experiments showed similar results.CONCLUSIONS: Our present study reveals that Bcl-3 knockdown inhibits cell migration and chemoresistance of gastric cancer cells through restoring HYP-induced autophagy.

ABSTRACT

Tic disorders are common diseases in children,and may negatively impact the quality of life of those ones affected.There is no cure therapy for tics;treatment aims to diminish tic severity and frequency.Behavioral treatment is recommended as first line offer to patients in most cases.It is recognized that behavioral techniques,especially habit reversal training(HRT),can offer an effective alternative or complement to pharmacotherapy in this setting.HRT is the best-studied and most widely-used technique and there is sufficient experimental evidence to suggest that it can significantly reduce tic severity in both adults and children with Tourette syndrome and other tics.It consists of three primary components:awareness training,competing response training and social support.

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveTo investigate the association between different hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes and serum interleukin-17 (IL-17), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and vitamin D in patients with HCV-related cirrhosis. MethodsSeventy-six patients with HCV-related cirrhosis, who were admitted to 302 Hospital of PLA from January to December, 2012, were enrolled in the study, and they were divided into type 1b group (n=47) and type 2a group (n=29) according to the genotypes. The levels of serum IL-17, IL-6, and vitamin D were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Comparison between the two groups was made by t test, and Spearman correlation analysis was used to investigate the association between serum IL-17, IL-6, and vitamin D and genotypes. ResultsThe findings in improved Child-Pugh classification showed that there were significant differences in the percentage of grade A patients between type 1b group and type 2a group (χ2=4.97, P<0.05); when compared with type 2a group, type 1b group showed significantly higher lentiviral titers of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and HCV RNA and levels of IL-17, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) (t=21.56, 16.51, 1231, 10.71, and 7.23, respectively, all P<0.05), but significantly lower levels of interferon-γ (IFNγ), 25(OH)D, and 1,25(OH)2D (t=3.98, 6.32, and 4.88, respectively; all P<0.05); Spearman correlation analysis showed that the lentiviral titers of AFP and HCV RNA and the levels of IL-17 and IL-6 were positively correlated with genotype 1b and genotype 2a (all P<0.05), while the levels of IFNγ, TNFα, and 25-OH-D were negatively correlated with genotype 1b and genotype 2a (all P<0.05). ConclusionCompared with those with genotype 2a, HCV-related cirrhosis patients with genotype 1b have higher serum levels of IL-17, IL-6, AFP, and HCV RNA, but a lower level of vitamin D; the results suggested that there are correlations between serum IL-17, IL-6, 25-OH-D, AFP, and HCV RNA and genotype, but no significant correlation between 1,25(OH)2D and genotype.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>Breast cancer is one of the most common malignant female diseases worldwide. It is a significant threat to every woman's health. Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (VEGI) is known to be abundant in endothelial cells. According to previous literature, overexpression of VEGI has been shown to inhibit tumor neovascularisation and progression in cellular and animal models, but there has been limited research on the significance of VEGI in the breast cancer.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>In our study, cell lines MDA-MB-231 were first constructed in which VEGI mediated by lentivirus over-expressed. The effects of VEGI over-expression on MDA-MB-231 cells were investigated both in vitro and in vivo. The expression of VEGI in the MDA-MB-231 cells after infection of lentivirus was analyzed using real-time PCR and Western blotting. The effect of the biological characteristics of MDA-MB-231 cells was assessed by growth, invasion, adhesion, and migration assay with subcutaneous tumor-bearing nude mice models. Then the growth curves of the subcutaneous tumors were studied. Expressions of VEGI, CD31 and CD34 in the tumors were analyzed by immunohistochemistry and apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Infection of MDA-MB-231 cells within the lentivirus resulted in approximately a 1 000-fold increase in the expression of VEGI. As can be seen in the invasion, adhesion and migration assay, the over-expression of VEGI can inhibit the ability of MDA-MB-231 cells during migration, adhesion and invasion. The volume of the subcutaneous tumor in the over-expression group was distinctly and significantly less than that of the control groups. Immunohistochemistry analysis of the tumor biopsies clearly showed the expression of VEGI in the over-expression group increased while CD31 and CD34 decreased significantly. In vitro and in vivo, the early apoptosis rate and the apoptosis index were increased within the VEGI over-expression group as compared with the control group.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Taken together, recombinant lentivirus that were successfully constructed, demonstrated up-regulated VEGI gene expression in breast cancer cells. Lentivirus-mediated over-expression of VEGI weakened the ability of the breast cancer cell migration, adhesion and invasion. Over-expression of VEGI diminished the tumorigenic capacity of breast cancer cells in vivo. Up-regulation of VEGI gene expression however inhibited breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cell in the early apoptosis.</p>

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveTo investigate the inhibitory effect of lentivirusly-mediated ObR-siRNA on transplanted MCF-7 human breast cancer cells by intratumoral injection.MethodsA model of subcutaneous implanted tumor was generated through injecting MCF-7 human breast cancer cells into the nude mice.Thirty established mice with MCF-7 breast cancer cells xenograft were divided into 3 groups randomly,and mice in the experimental group were intratumorally injected with ObR-siRNA lentivirus,while the negative control group and blank control group mice were injected with the same dose of negative lentivirus and normal saline.All mice were subcutaneously injected with recombinant human leptin around the tumor site once a day.Tumor size was blindly measured every other day and the mRNA expression and protein expression levels of ObR in each group were determined.ResultsKnockdown of ObR-treated xenografted nude mice with a high leptin microenvironment was successfully established.Local injection of ObR-siRNA lentivirus significantly suppressed the established tumor growth in nude mice(P < 0.01,P <0.01 ).Real time-PCR and Western blotting showed that the mRNA and protein expression of ObR was decreased in the ObR-siRNA lentivirus group( P < 0.01,P < 0.01 ).ConclusionsIntratumoral injection of recomhinant ObR-siRNA lentivirus inhibits the growth of MCF-7 cells xenografts in the nude mice,suggesting that ObR might represent a therapeutic target in the genotherapies of human breast cancer.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the influence of anti-angiogenesis therapy on proliferation and apoptosis of fibroblasts derived from keloids. Methods Thirty pieces of keloids from a patient were implanted into subcutaneous tissue of the nude mice, 24 pieces of which survived were divided into three groups which were treated with perilesional injection of vascular endothelial growth factor( VEGF) (0.4 mg/0.2 mL) , Endostar(0.125 g/0.2 mL) and physiological saline (0.2 mL)on the 21 d, 23 d, 25 d, 27 d after implantation. Sample were collected on the 10th day after perilesional injection, the proliferating fibroblasts in keloid tissue were immunohistochemically detected by proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) expression. The apoptotic cell was detected by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP-nick end labeling (TUNEL) staining. Results IHC staining indicated that PCNA expression of fibroblasts was significantly increased in keloid tissue after VEGF injection, PCNA expression of fibroblasts was significantly reduced in keloid tissue after Endostar injection,TUNEL assay revealed lower apoptotic cells expression in the keloid tissue after VEGF injection and higher in the Endostar group than control group. The rate of proliferative index (PI) , apoptotic index(AI) and AI/PI of fibroblasts in keloid after VEGF (PI:41.13 ±2.29,AI:5.75 ±1.28,AI/PI: 0.14 ± 0.04)or Endostar injection (PI:27.25 ±2.61,AI:11.00±1.31,AI/PI:0.41 ±0.09)and control group (PI: 34.75 ±3.62,AI:7. 88 ± 1.64,AI/PI:0. 23 ±0.07) showed statistical differences. Conclusion Anti-angiogenesis therapy is shown to induce keloid regression through suppression of keloid fibroblast proliferation,induction of apoptosis, which may be a new approach for the treatment of keloids.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the different effect of exogenous leptin on estrogen receptor α,β mRNA in human breast tumor tissue in nude mice xenograft models. Methods We made nude mice xenograft models of MCF-7 human breast cancer cells cultured in vitro, then divided them into experimental group of]eptin( n = 30)and control group of normal saline( n = 30)randomly. The models of experimental group were injected subcutaneously the recombinant human leptin for 15 consecutive days, the models of control group were injected subcutaneously the same dose of normal saline. A real- time quantitative RT- PCR assay was developed to quantify the expression of estrogen receptor α, β mRNA in tumor tissue, using the relative quantitative analysis. Results The leptin-intervened nude mice xenograft models were safely established. The relative quantitation of estrogen receptor α mRNA was significantly higher in the leptin group than in the normal saline group ( P < 0.01 ), the relative quantitation of estrogen receptor β mRNA was significantly lower in the leptin group than in the normal saline group ( P < 0. 01 ). Conclusion The nude mice xenograft models can be safely intervened with human leptin by subcutaneous injection around tumor.Estrogen receptor is one of the targets of leptin in the progress of breast cancer. Exogenous human leptin can up- regulate the expression of estrogen receptor α and down- regulate the expression of the estrogen receptor βin nude mice xenograft models of human breast tumor.

ABSTRACT

To produce the reverse transcriptase of moloney murine leukemia virus (MMLV-RT) through gene recombination, MMLV-rt gene was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with specifically designed primers bearing restriction enzyme sites. Five mutation sites increasing the solution of the target protein were introduced through Site-directed mutation. After verification by sequencing, the gene was cloned into the expression vector pET15b to construct the recombinant plasmid pET15b-MMLV-rt. Purified MMLV-RT was obtained by affinity chromatography (Ni3+-NTA beads). Molecular weight and purity of MMLV-RT were analyzed with SDS-PAGE. Enzyme activity was characterized with RT-PCR. We successfully constructed the recombinant plasmid pET15b-MMLV-rt and obtained the MMLV-RT fusion protein with 6His on the N-terminus. Recombinant protein was purified through Ni3+-NTA beads based affinity chromatography, the purity of which was 96%. The Activity of the enzyme was high. MMLV-RT of 96% purity was obtained with the prokaryotic expression technique, which serves as the basis for mass production of this enzyme.
