RESUMO

This study aims to compare the internal chemical composition and appearance indifferent growth patterns and years of Saposhnikovia divaricata decoction pieces,which was applied to explore the effect of growth patterns and years on its quality. The appearance characteristic data of 55 batches of different growth patterns and years of S. divaricata were collected using PANTONE color card.High performance liquid chromatography( HPLC) was used to determine the contents of prim-O-glucosyl-cinmifugin,cimifugin,4-O-ß-D-glucosyl-5-O-methylvisamminol and sec-O-glucosylhamaudol. The content of alcohol soluble extract and water-soluble extract were determined by hot-dip method. The content of volatile oil was determined by steam distillation. The correlation between growth patterns and years and the contents of 4 chromones,extracts and volatile oil were analyzed by modern statistical methods. Also,the method of comprehensively evaluating the quality of Chinese herbal pieces was developed by combining the growth patterns and years,appearance and chemical indexes. MTT assay was used to evaluate the effects on the survival rate of RAW264. 7 cells at four different concentrations of chromones and LPS was used to stimulate well-growing RAW264. 7 cells to establish an inflammatory model. The contents of NO and TNF-α in cell supernatant were detected by NO test kit and ELISA method. The contents of alcohol soluble extracts and water-soluble extracts in different growth patterns and years are: wild productsperennial cultivation>annual cultivation; the contents of four chromones are: wild products>perennial cultivation and annual cultivation. There was no significant difference between the sum of the two indexes in the Pharmacopoeia of perennial cultivation and wild products. 4 chromones showed no toxicity to RAW264. 7 cells at 5 mg·L-1. The release of NO and TNF-α was inhibited by 4 chromones and the anti-inflammatory effect of cimifugin was the best. In summary,there are obvious differences in appearance characteristics,internal quality and effects between different growth patterns and years. It showed that the wild products were superior to the perennial cultivation and the perennial cultivation was superior to the annual cultivation. In order to alleviate the shortage of wild S. divaricata resources,it is suggested that the Chinese Pharmacopoeia standard should increase the character of decoction pieces of perennial cultivation,and properly raise the limit requirement of the sum of the two indexes in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia to ensure the clinical demands and effect.

RESUMO

This study aimed to investigate the correlation of long noncoding RNA zinc finger antisense 1 (lncRNA ZFAS1) expression with disease risk, disease severity and inflammatory cytokines levels in lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) patients.83 LDD patients underwent surgery and 28 traumatized, non-LDD patients underwent lumbar disc surgery (controls) were consecutively enrolled in this case-control study. Lumbar disc tissue was obtained during surgery and herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) was isolated to detect lncRNA ZFAS1 expression and inflammatory cytokines mRNA levels by RT-qPCR, and determine protein levels of inflammatory cytokines by western blot.HNP lncRNA ZFAS1 expression in LDD patients was up-regulated compared with controls (P < .001), and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve showed lncRNA ZFAS1 expression disclosed a good predictive value for LDD risk with area under curve (AUC) 0.753 (95% CI 0.646-0.859). And after adjustment by age, gender and body mass index (BMI), lncRNA ZFAS1 (P = .017) remained to be an independent predictive factor for higher LDD risk. In addition, lncRNA ZFAS1 expression was positively associated with Modified Pfirrmann Grade (P = .015). As to inflammatory cytokines, lncRNA ZFAS1 expression was observed to be positively correlated with TNF-α (P = .002), IL-1ß (P = .007) and IL-6 (P = .015) mRNAs expressions while reversely associated with IL-10 mRNA level (P = .014); and lncRNA ZFAS1 expression was also positively correlated with protein levels of TNF-α (P = .038) and IL-6 (P = .027) while reversely associated with IL-10 protein expression (P = .039).lncRNA ZFAS1 expression associates with increased risk, elevated disease severity and higher inflammatory cytokines levels in LDD patients.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of vitamin E on the respiratory function impairment in rats with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) after exposed to high temperature and PM2.5. METHODS: Fifty-four 7-week-old SPF male Wistar rats were randomly divided into 9 experimental groups (n=6). The rat COPD model was established by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and smoke exposure. After modeled, the rats were tracheal instilled with PM2.5 (0 mg/ml, 3.2 mg/ml) and intraperitoneally injected with vitamin E at the dose of 40 mg/kg (20 mg/ml). Part of rats (high temperature groups) were then exposed to high temperature (40℃), once (8 h) a day for three consecutive days. After the last exposure, the lung function of rats was detected. The expression levels of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1) were detected by corresponding ELISA kits. RESULTS: Compared with the control group, exposure of high temperature and PM2.5 could inhibit the lung function of COPD rats significantly (P<0.05); the level of MCP-1 was increased significantly in PM2.5-exposure groups (P<0.05); iNOS was increased significantly in the groups of high temperature (P<0.05). Compared with the single-PM2.5 exposure groups, TNF-α in lung was decreased in the normal temperature health group and high temperature COPD group (P<0.05) after treated with vitamin E; MCP-1 was decreased in all vitamin E-treated groups (P<0.05); the decreased iNOS only appeared in the group of high temperature with vitamin E treatment. CONCLUSION: High temperature and PM2.5 could aggravate the inflammation of COPD rats. As an antioxidant, vitamin E may protect the lung from the damage effects.

RESUMO

Costimulatory signals initiated by the interaction between the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand and cognate TNF receptor (TNFR) superfamilies promote clonal expansion, differentiation, and survival of antigen-primed CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and have a pivotal role in T-cell-mediated adaptive immunity and diseases. Accumulating evidence in recent years indicates that costimulatory signals via the subset of the TNFR superfamily molecules, OX40 (TNFRSF4), 4-1BB (TNFRSF9), CD27, DR3 (TNFRSF25), CD30 (TNFRSF8), GITR (TNFRSF18), TNFR2 (TNFRSF1B), and HVEM (TNFRSF14), which are constitutive or inducible on T cells, play important roles in protective immunity, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, and tumor immunotherapy. In this chapter, we will summarize the findings of recent studies on these TNFR family of co-signaling molecules regarding their function at various stages of the T-cell response in the context of infection, inflammation, and cancer. We will also discuss how these TNFR co-signals are critical for immune regulation and have therapeutic potential for the treatment of T-cell-mediated diseases.

RESUMO

Introduction: The treatment of psoriasis with conventional topical therapies and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) is often linked to unsatisfactory outcomes and the risk of serious adverse events. Over the last decades, research advances in understanding the role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF α) and other cytokines in the pathogenesis of psoriasis have driven the introduction of biologic agents targeting specific immune mediators in everyday clinical practice. TNF α inhibitors are a consolidated treatment option for patients with moderate-to-severe disease with remarkable efficacy and a reassuring safety profile.Areas covered: The PubMed database was searched using combinations of the following keywords: psoriasis, TNF α inhibitors, biologic therapy, pharmacodynamics, adalimumab, etanercept, infliximab, certolizumab pegol, golimumab, adverse effects. The aim of this review is to describe the pharmacodynamic profile of anti-TNF α inhibitors, currently approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of psoriasis, focusing on related clinical implications, also in comparison to the new generation biological therapies targeting the interleukin 23/interleukin 17 axis.Expert opinion: Pharmacodynamics of TNF α inhibitors should be fully considered in planning patient's therapy strategies, especially in case of secondary failures, poor adherence to treatment, instable psoriasis, high risk of infection, pregnant or lactating women, metabolic comorbidities, coexistence of other immune-mediated inflammatory diseases.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of n-acetyl cysteine (NAC) in the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-mediated induction of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-1ß (IL-1ß) synthesis by human periodontal ligament fibroblast cells (hPDLFs). In addition, we aimed to determine the involvement of the nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) pathway in any changes in IL-1ß and TNF-α expression observed in response to LPS and NAC. METHODS: HPDLFs were obtained by primary culture. The culture medium used in this experiment was Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium (DMEM low-glucose). Cells were stimulated with various concentrations of NAC or LPS. Cell proliferation was measured at various time-points with the cell Counting Kit 8 (CCK-8) assay. mRNA levels of IL-1ß and TNF-α were determined by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) analysis. Protein levels of IL-1ß and TNF-α were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Protein and mRNA expression levels of NF-κB were measured by western blot and RT-qPCR. RESULTS: The results showed that LPS treatment in hPDLFs induced mRNA and protein expression of IL-1ß, TNF-α, and NF-κB. However, these effects were eliminated by pretreatment with NAC. Pretreatment with both NAC (1 mmol/L) and BAY11-7082 (10 µmol/L) significantly inhibited the NF-κB activity induced by LPS. CONCLUSION: NAC inhibits the LPS-mediated synthesis of tumor TNF-α and IL-1ß in hPDLFs, through the NF-κB pathway.

RESUMO

To study the expression changes of inflammatory factors heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and interleukin-1ß (IL-1ß) in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), brain tissues surrounding hematoma were collected from ICH patients. The expressions of HO-1, TNF-α, IL- 1ß, and other genes were examined at different time points of ICH. Changes in HO-1, TNF-α, and IL-1ß positive cell numbers after ICH were detected by immunohistochemical staining. The results showed that the expressions of HO-1, TNF-α, and IL-1ß had no significant changes in brain tissues surrounding hematoma within 6 hours after ICH (P > 0.05). Their expressions during 6-24 hours and 24-72 hours after ICH increased constantly. After reaching the peak, they remained steady or slightly decreased after 72 hours. The dynamic expression changes of HO-1, TNF-α, and IL-1ß were observed and their development trends were interfered timely to alleviate the secondary neurological impairment after ICH, which was significant to prevent ICH.

RESUMO

The objective of this paper was to study the effects of PYR-ARG-PRO-ARG-LEU-SER-HIS-YSGLY-PRO-MET-PRO-PHE-OH (APELIN-13) on the expression of inflammatory factors interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) in rats with experimental autoimmune neuritis (EAN). A total of 30 rats were divided into a control group, an EAN group, and an APELIN-13 group. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to detect the levels of IL-6, TNF-α, and IFN-γ in rat plasma. Real-time quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Western blot were used to detect the protein and mRNA expression of IL-6, TNF-α, and IFN-γ in rat lymph nodes. In the EAN group, the infiltration of various types of inflammatory cells and focal demyelination were observed near the nerve fascicles of sciatic nerves. Compared with the EAN group, the infiltration of inflammatory cells and demyelination in the APELIN-13 group decreased significantly. The levels of plasma IL-6, TNF-α, and IFN-γ in the EAN group were significantly higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05) but significantly lower than those in the APELIN-13 group (P < 0.05). Compared with the control group, the mRNA and protein expression of IL-6, TNF-α, and IFN-γ increased significantly (P < 0.05) in the EAN group but decreased significantly in the APELIN-13 group (P < 0.05). In conclusion, APELIN-13 exerted a protective effect against EAN in rats.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a common and intractable skin disease affecting the physical and mental health of patients. The accumulation of ROS is involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and antioxidants are believed to be therapeutic. This study aimed to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of astilbin on ROS accumulation in psoriasis. RESULTS: The study showed that 50 µg/ml astilbin could inhibit the growth and reduce the accumulation of ROS in HaCaT cells stimulated by IL-17 and TNF-α. Astilbin could elevate the Nrf2 accumulation in the nuclei, eventually leading to the transcriptional activation of various antioxidant proteins and reducing the expression of VEGF. CONCLUSIONS: Our results collectively suggest that astilbin could induce Nrf2 nucleus translocation, which is contribute to reduce the ROS accumulation and VEGF expression, and inhibit the proliferation of HaCaT cells.

RESUMO

Sleep is crucial to improve athlete performance and their circadian rhythm, but sleep patterns may be disturbed because athletes participate in several competitions. In addition, intensive training programs can cause muscle pain and psychological stress in athletes, resulting in a lack of sleep. Sleep also plays a critical role in the recovery of muscle injury induced by exercise. The current study evaluated the effect of sleep deprivation on the recovery of muscle injury induced by high-intensity exercise in a mouse model. In this study, 28 mice were randomly assigned to four groups (N = 7): control (Control), exercise (EX), sleep deprivation (SD), and sleep deprivation with exercise (EX+SD). The mice from the EX and EX+SD groups were subjected to high-intensity swimming. The results showed that 72-h sleep deprivation increased food intake and reduced body weight. However, the manipulation of 8-week exercise and/or 72-h sleep deprivation did not have any effect in the elevated plus maze task and tail suspension test. Interestingly, the EX+SD group exhibited improved memory performance in the Morris water maze and impaired motor activity in the open field test. According to the TNF-α level and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and creatine phosphokinase (CK) activities, only the EX+SD group exhibited muscle impairment. Overall, high-intensity exercise may cause muscle injury, and adequate sleep can recover muscle damage. However, sleep deprivation reduces protein synthesis, which decreases the ability to restore muscle damage and aggravates the harmful effect of high-intensity exercise.

RESUMO

AIMS: The current study was conducted to investigate the potential protective effects of hesperidin and its possible mechanisms of action on pancreatic ß-cells in diabetes. MAIN METHODS: Male Sprague Dawley rats were made diabetic using 65 mg/kg intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin, and then administered daily with 100 mg/kg of hesperidin over 4 weeks. On conclusion of the experiment, blood and pancreatic tissue were collected to determine the function of ß-cells, apoptosis, oxidative stress, ER stress, and inflammation. KEY FINDINGS: Treatment of diabetic rats with hesperidin, significantly decreased fasting blood glucose and food intake, along with increased body weight, serum and pancreatic insulin levels, and pancreatic-duodenal homeobox-1 (PDX-1) protein expression. The beneficial roles of hesperidin on diabetic pancreatic ß-cells exhibited an increment in antioxidant SOD and GPx activities, and a decrement in nitrotyrosine as well as malondialdehyde (MDA) levels. Additionally, the elevated concentration of TNF-α and expressions of ER stress maker GRP78 and CHOP proteins in the pancreas of diabetic rats were significantly diminished by hesperidin treatment. Furthermore, hesperidin effectively modulated expressions of apoptosis-regulatory proteins in diabetic rat pancreas, as revealed by upregulating anti-apoptotic Bcl-xL; with a concomitant downregulating pro-apoptotic Bax, cleaved caspase-3, and inhibiting the activation of DNA repair protein poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP). SIGNIFICANCE: Collectively, these findings suggest that hesperidin may have the potential to protect pancreatic ß-cells and improve their function by suppressing oxidative and ER stress, along with activating its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptotic effects.

RESUMO

Among the diseases of the cardiovascular system in elderly people, ischemic heart disease and myocardial infarction (MI) occupy the first place in the structure of mortality. One of the main causes of disability and death from MI is late diagnosis. In this regard, the search for new, highly informative and non-invasive methods for diagnosing MI is an important task of molecular gerontology. An enzyme immunoassay showed that the concentration of TNF-α, IL-8 cytokines and p16 aging marker in saliva in elderly people without cardiovascular pathologies (CP) increases in 2,1-4,8 times as compared with middle-aged people. At the same time, in elderly people without CP the concentration in the saliva of the hormone irisin (FNDC5) decreases by 1,8 times as compared with middle-aged people. In middle-aged patients with MI the concentration of IL-8, TNF-α, MMP8, MMP9 in saliva increases 4,3-15,3 times, and FNDC5 decreases 1,8 times compared with those parameters without CP in this age group. In elderly people with MI the concentration of IL-8, TNF-α, MMP8 and MMP9 in saliva increases 4,3-7,1 times as compared with elderly people without CP. Thus, the study of the concentration of signaling molecules IL-8, TNF-α, MMP8, MMP9 in saliva can be used as a non-invasive method for diagnosing MI in people of middle and elderly age. To assess the rate of aging of the organism in middle-aged and elderly people without CP, a study of the concentration of p16 and FNDC5 molecules in saliva is recommended.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To investigate the role of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in renal ischemia/reperfusion-induced (I/R) cardiac inflammatoryprofile. METHODS: Left kidney ischemia was induced in male C57BL/6 mice for 60 min, followed by reperfusion for 12 days, and treatment with or without atenolol, losartan, or enalapril. The expression of vimentin in kidney and atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) in the heart has been investigated by RT-PCR. In cardiac tissue, levels of ß1-adrenoreceptors, adenylyl cyclase, cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), noradrenaline, adrenaline (components of SNS), type 1 angiotensin II receptors (AT1R), angiotensinogen/Ang II and renin (components of RAS) have been measured by Western blotting and HPLC analysis. A panel of cytokines - tumour necrosis factor (TNF-α), interleukin IL-6, and interferon gamma (IFN-γ) - was selected as cardiac inflammatory markers. RESULTS: Renal vimentin mRNA levels increased by >10 times in I/R mice, indicative of kidney injury. ANF, a marker of cardiac lesion, increased after renal I/R, the values being restored to the level of Sham group after atenolol or enalapril treatment. The cardiac inflammatory profile was confirmed by the marked increase in the levels of mRNAs of TNF-α, IL-6, and IFN-γ. Atenolol and losartan reversed the upregulation of TNF-α expression, whereas enalapril restored IL-6 levels to Sham levels; both atenolol and enalapril normalized IFN-γ levels. I/R mice showed upregulation of ß1-adrenoreceptors, adenylyl cyclase, PKA and noradrenaline. Renal I/R increased cardiac levels of AT1R, which decreased after losartan or enalapril treatment. Renin expression also increased, with the upregulation returning to Sham levels after treatment with SNS and RAS blockers. Angiotensinogen/Ang II levels in heart were unaffected by renal I/R, but they were significantly decreased after treatment with losartan and enalapril, whereas increase in renin levels decreased. CONCLUSION: Renal I/R-induced cardiac inflammatory events provoked by the simultaneous upregulation of SNS and RAS in the heart, possibly underpin the mechanism involved in the development of cardiorenal syndrome.

RESUMO

Objective To investigate the effect of fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) on the lipid accumulation and inflammation induced by palmitate treatment in L02 hepatocytes and the underlying mechanism. Methods L02 cells were infected with lentivirus expressing SIRT1 shRNA to knockdown SIRT1 expression. Wild-type and SIRT1-knockdown L02 cells were treated with 250 mol/L palmitate for 5 days, and then administrated with 1 g/ml FGF21 for 72 hours. Triglycerides in the cells were detected with the infinity triglycerides reagent. Malondialdehyde (MDA) in the cells was assessed by MDA detection assay. Tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) and interleukin 6 (IL-6) levels in supernatant were measured by ELISA. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels were tested by the specific Amplex red ROS detection assay kit from Thermo Fisher Company. The gene expression of SIRT1, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1α (PGC1α), superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD2) and catalase (CAT) were measured by real-time quantitative PCR. The protein levels of SIRT1, PGC1α, SOD2 and CAT were detected by Western blot analysis. Mitochondrial membrane potentials were detected by the JC-1staining kit. Mitochondrial oxygen consumption rate (OCR) was detected with the Seahorse XF Mito stress test kit. Results Palmitate increased the triglycerides level, induced the oxidative stress in both the cells and the mitochondria, decreased the gene expression and protein levels of SIRT1, PGC1α, SOD2 and CAT, increased the levels of TNF-α and IL-6, decreased the mitochondrial membrane potential, and impaired the mitochondrial function. FGF21 treatment could attenuate all of these effects caused by palmitate, while SIRT1 knockdown blocked most of the FGF21 effects on the L02 hepatocytes. Conclusion FGF21 activates SIRT1 pathway and inhibites the lipid accumulation, improves the mitochondrial function, and decreases the oxidative stress as well as inflammation in palmitate-treated L02 cells.

RESUMO

Preclinical assays play a key role in research in research on the neurobiology of pain and the development of novel analgesics. Drugs available for the treatment of inflammatory pain are not fully effective and show adverse effects. Thus, we investigated the antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperalgesic effects of bis(3-amino-2-pyridine) diselenide (BAPD), a new analgesic drug prototype. BAPD effects were investigated using nociception models induced by chemical (glutamate), immunologic (Freund's Complete Adjuvant - CFA) and thermal stimuli in Swiss mice. Mice were orally (p.o.) treated with BAPD (0.1-50 mg/kg) 30 min prior to the glutamate and hot-plate tests and a time-course (0.5 up to 8 h) of the antinociceptive effect of BAPD (50 mg/kg, p. o.) was evaluated in a CFA model. In the CFA model, BAPD effects on cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), tumor necrosis factor (TNFα) and interferon-γ (INF-γ) expression, myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, oxidative (2,2'-Azino-bis-3-ethylbenzothiazoline 6-sulfonic acid and 2,2-diphe- nyl-1-picrylhydrazyl levels) and histological parameters were evaluated. The safety of the compound (50 and 300 mg/kg, p. o.) was verified for 72 h. BAPD reduced the licking time induced by glutamate and caused an increase in latency response to thermal stimulus. Naloxone reversed the antinociceptive effect of BAPD. Paw edema formation induced by glutamate or CFA injection was reduced by BAPD. Mechanical hyperalgesia induced by CFA was attenuated by BAPD. BAPD did not protect against the increase in MPO activity and decrease of the 2,2'-Azino-bis-3-ethylbenzothiazoline 6-sulfonic acid and 2,2-diphe- nyl-1-picrylhydrazyl levels induced by CFA. BAPD protected against histological alterations and reduction on the levels of gene expression COX-2 and INF-γ in the paw of mice exposed to CFA. BAPD was safe at the doses and time evaluated. BAPD exerts acute antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory and anti-hyperalgesic actions, suggesting that it may represent an alternative in the future development of new therapeutic strategies.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides were found to alleviate acute hepatitis significantly. In this study, we purified and identified ACE inhibitory peptide from cashew to evaluate its protective role on alcohol-induced acute hepatitis in mice. RESULTS: The ACE inhibitory peptides were purified by using consecutive chromatographic techniques. One of these peptides (FETISFK) exhibited the highest ACE inhibition rate (91.04 ± 0.31%). In vivo, the results showed that ACE inhibitory peptide decreased levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) caused by alcohol exposure. Moreover, it could increase the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione (GSH), and decrease the level of malondialdehyde (MDA). It was also found to down-regulate markedly the expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α). It could also decrease the expression of ACE, angiotensin II (AngII) and angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1 R). CONCLUSION: These findings support the view that the ACE inhibitory peptide alleviated acute hepatitis by down-regulating the ACE-AngII-AT1 R axis, broadening the research approach to prevent acute hepatitis, and providing experimental data for the development and utilization of cashews. © 2019 Society of Chemical Industry.

RESUMO

Chemotherapeutic drugs that induce DNA damage have the potential to kill cancer cells, but DNA repair protects cells from damage-induced cell death. Thus, eliminating DNA repair is a potential approach to overcome cell drug resistance. In this study, we observed that the gene expression of C-terminal binding protein interacting protein (CTIP) was promoted by TNF-α stimulation and prevented TNF-α-induced double-strand breaks (DSBs) in the genomes of cervical cancer cells. The putative miR-130b targeted site within 3' untranslated region (UTR) of CTIP mRNA was identified through in silico analysis and confirmed based on experimental data. By targeting the CTIP gene, miR-130b caused the accumulation of DSBs and accelerated cell apoptosis in combination with poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors. Additionally, overexpression of the CTIP gene elevated cancer cell viability by promoting proliferation while miR-130b antagonized CTIP-stimulated cell reproduction. Consequently, miR-130b destruction of DNA repair should be employed as a strategy to treat cervical cancer. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY: Cervical cancer threatens the health of women all over the world. In this study, we observed that miR-130b was able to cause the accumulation of DNA double-strand breaks through suppressing the gene expression of C-terminal binding protein interacting protein and to accelerate cell apoptosis by preventing DNA damage repairs in cervical cancer cells. As far as we know, the impact of miR-130b on the DNA double-strand break repair and on the cell apoptosis induced by the destruction of DNA repair in cervical cancer cells was firstly documented. It is reasonable to believe that miR-130b destruction of DNA repair may be employed as a strategy to treat cervical cancer in the future.

RESUMO

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of salidroside (Sal) on inflammatory activation induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in the co-culture of rat alveolar macrophages (AM) NR 8383 and type II alveolar epithelial cells (AEC II) RLE-6TN. CCK-8 colorimetric method was used to detect cell proliferation percentage. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to determine the content of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) in the supernatant. Western blot was used to examine the expression levels of phosphorylated AKT (p-AKT) and total AKT protein. The results showed that pretreatment of RLE-6TN cells or co-culture of RLE-6TN and NR 8383 cells with 32 and 128 µg/mL Sal for 1 h, followed by continuous culture for 24 h, significantly increased the cell proliferation (P < 0.05). Compared with control group, 32 and 128 µg/mL Sal pretreatment significantly increased the ratio of p-AKT/AKT in RLE-6TN cells (P < 0.05). Pretreatment of 32 µg/mL Sal not only inhibited the secretion of TNF-α and MIP-2 by NR 8383 cells induced by LPS (P < 0.05), but also enhanced the inhibitory effect of RLE-6TN and NR 8383 cells co-culture on the secretion of TNF-α and MIP-2 by NR 8383 cells induced by LPS (P < 0.05). In addition, 32 µg/mL Sal pretreatment promoted LPS-induced IL-10 secretion by NR 8383 cells (P < 0.05), and enhanced the promoting effect of co-culture of RLE-6TN and NR 8383 cells on the IL-10 secretion by LPS-induced NR 8383 cells (P < 0.05). In conclusion, Sal may directly inhibit LPS-induced inflammatory activation of AM (NR 8383), promote the proliferation of AEC II (RLE-6TN) through PI3K/AKT signaling pathway, and enhance the regulatory effect of AEC II on LPS-induced inflammatory activation of AM.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the protective effect of microRNA-181b (miR-181b) on aged rats with sepsis-induced hippocampus injury in vivo. METHODS: Seventy-five male healthy old Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into five groups (n = 15) using a random number table: sham operation group (Sham group), sepsis group [cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) group], miR-181b Agomir+CLP group (Ag+CLP group), miR-181b Antagomir+CLP group (An+CLP group) and normal saline (NS) control group (NS+CLP group). Rats sepsis model was reproduced by CLP, and in Sham group, the cecum of rats was separated only after abdominal operation without ligation or perforation. The rats in Ag+CLP group were given miR-181b Agomir 10 µL via lateral ventricle at 24 hours before CLP, the rats in An+CLP group were given 10 µL miR-181b Antagomir, and those in NS+CLP group were given 10 µL NS. At 6, 12, 24 hours after CLP, 5 rats of each group were sacrificed randomly, and hippocampus were harvested. The expression of miR-181b in hippocampus was determined by real-time fluorescence quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). The expression of nuclear factor-ΚB p65 (NF-ΚB p65) was determined by Western Blot. The contents of interleukin-1ß (IL-1ß) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). RESULTS: Compared with Sham group, the expression of miR-181b in hippocampus of CLP group was significantly decreased at 6 hours after CLP (2-ΔΔCT: 0.70±0.12 vs. 0.98±0.06, P < 0.05), and the expressions of NF-ΚB p65, IL-1ß and TNF-α were significantly increased [NF-ΚB p65/Histone H3: 0.30±0.03 vs. 0.07±0.01, IL-1ß (ng/L): 120.39±8.02 vs. 50.55±11.12, TNF-α (ng/L): 59.48±4.60 vs. 40.31±3.96, all P < 0.05], this trend was continued till 24 hours, and these results indicated that there was obvious inflammation in hippocampus of sepsis rats. There was no statistical difference in the expression of miR-181b, NF-ΚB p65, IL-1ß or TNF-α in hippocampus between NS+CLP group and CLP group, which indicated that injection of NS into the rat lateral ventricle, had not aggravated the damage degree of hippocampus. Compared with CLP group, the expression of miR-181b in hippocampus of Ag+CLP group was significantly increased at 6 hours after CLP (2-ΔΔCT: 1.87±0.25 vs. 0.70±0.12, P < 0.05), and the expressions of NF-ΚB p65, IL-1ß and TNF-α were significantly lowered [NF-ΚB p65/Histone H3: 0.16±0.03 vs. 0.30±0.03, IL-1ß (ng/L): 73.76±8.17 vs. 120.39±8.02, TNF-α (ng/L): 49.52±4.77 vs. 59.48±4.60, all P < 0.05]. There was no statistical difference in the expression of miR-181b in hippocampus between An+CLP group and CLP group (2-ΔΔCT: 0.80±0.08 vs. 0.70±0.12 at 6 hours, 0.48±0.03 vs. 0.46±0.05 at 12 hours, 0.61±0.09 vs. 0.63±0.07 at 24 hours, all P > 0.05), but the expressions of NF-ΚB p65, IL-1ß and TNF-α in hippocampus at 6 hours after CLP of An+CLP group were significantly higher than those of CLP group [NF-ΚB p65/Histone H3: 0.44±0.02 vs. 0.30±0.03, IL-1ß (ng/L): 134.21±5.78 vs. 120.39±8.02, TNF-α (ng/L): 67.62±5.86 vs. 59.48±4.60, all P < 0.05], this trend was continued till 24 hours after CLP. The above results showed that overexpression of miR-181b might attenuate the inflammation of hippocampus through down-regulation of NF-ΚB, IL-1ß and TNF-α. CONCLUSIONS: The expression of hippocampal miR-181b was significantly decreased in septic rats. Up-regulation of miR-181b could inhibit the activation of NF-ΚB signal pathway and the release of the inflammatory cytokine IL-1ß and TNF-α stimulated by sepsis, and alleviate the inflammatory reaction and hippocampus injury in rat with sepsis.
