Publication date: Available online 19 June 2019Source: Biosensors and BioelectronicsAuthor(s): Sattar Akbari Nakhjavani, Hadi Afsharan, Balal Khalilzadeh, Mohammad Hossein Ghahremani, Sandro Carrara, Yadollah OmidiAbstractCarcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is an important oncomarker for the detection of breast cancer. For ultra-sensitive sensing of CEA with great specificity and accuracy, an innovative and reliable electrochemical immunosensor was developed using various nano-hybrids. A glassy carbon electrode (GC) was modified with thiolated graphene oxide (T-GO) to elevate the active surface area of the electrode. The strept...

In this study, we found that miR-122 expression was increased in the aortic ECs of ApoE−/− mice fed with a high-fat diet (HFD), as compared to normal-diet (ND), implying a potential association between miR-122 elevation and atherogenesis. In addition, in vitro, miR-122 expression was also induced in human aortic ECs (HAECs) by the treatment of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL), a common atherogenic factor. Functionally, miR-122 knockdown suppressed ox-LDL-induced apoptosis of HAECs, suggesting a pro-apoptotic role of miR-122 in HAECs under this pro-atherogenic condition. Further evidence revealed that t...

Publication date: Available online 18 June 2019Source: Carbohydrate PolymersAuthor(s): P. Pramod Kumar, Harish Prashanth K.V.ABSTRACTAcrylamide (AA) presence and formation are predominant in fried, baked and heat-processed foods. Using Drosophila model, we have investigated the dietary AA-arbitrate oxidative stress induced neurotoxicity and the effect of soluble Low Molecular Weight Chitosan (LMWC) supplementation. We assessed the neurodegenerative and behavioural effect of AA (0-10 mM) exposure in Drosophila (adult males). As a result, the exposed flies showed distinctive locomotor impairments and incident of morta...

Garcia, Yanpeng Xing, Hsiao-Wang Chen, Gardenia Cheung-Lau, Nalo Hamilton, Michael E. Jung, Richard J. PietrasAbstractBreast cancers (BC) with expression of estrogen receptor-alpha (ERα) occur in more than 70% of newly-diagnosed patients in the U.S. Endocrine therapy with antiestrogens or aromatase inhibitors is an important intervention for BCs that express ERα, and it remains one of the most effective tar...

Petrov, Vladimir V. Petrov, Timofei S. Zatsepin, Gleb B. Sukhorukov, Dmitry A. GorinAbstractHigh intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is widely used in medical practice, including cancer therapy. Also this approach is promising for remote release of encapsulated drugs in various other biomedical applications where local treatment is needed. Our approach underpins the minimization of HIFU impact on possible degradation of biological t...

Publication date: Available online 19 June 2019Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Yeonhwa Song, I-Seul Park, Jiho Kim, Inhee Choi, Haeng Ran SeoAbstractLiver cancer is one of the most frequently occurring types of cancer with high mortality rate. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) frequently metastasizes to lung, portal vein, and portal lymph nodes and most HCCs show strong resistance to conventional anticancer drugs. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are considered to be responsible for resistance to therapies. Hence, recent advancements in the use of liver cancer stem cells (LCSCs) are rapidly gaining recognition as an...

Maulidiani, Nur Ashikin Abdul-Hamid, Faridah Abas, Yong Seo Park, Yang-Kyun Park, Young Mo Kim, Shela GorinsteinAbstractPersimmon (Diospyros kaki L.) contains a number of metabolites, especially polyphenols and carotenoids, and persimmon is one of the most healthy fruits linking to a diet with reduced incidences of several diseases. However, little data are available on the persimmon in connection with its metabolites and properties. In recent study the differences between polar and non-polar extracts by 1H NMR-based metabolomics was don...

However, most of the currently developed nanoplatforms for combinatorial phototherapy require the participation of different components or activation of separate lasers. Therefore, a desirable photoactive agent with intrinsic single laser-activated combinat...
