Estrogen stimulates SREBP2 expression in hepatic cell lines via an estrogen response element in the SREBP2 promoter.

Conclusions: An ERE was identified in the SREBP2 gene promoter. It mediates the regulation of SREBP2 expression by estrogen in hepatocytes. This study provides a mechanism to link cardiovascular disease with estrogen. PMID: 31827541 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Yan P, Zhou B, Ma Y, Wang A, Hu X, Luo Y, Yuan Y, Wei Y, Pang P, Mao J Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most commonly diagnosed liver cancer, accounting for ~90% of all primary malignancy of the liver. Although various medical treatments have been used as systemic therapies, patient survival time may be extended by only a few months. Moreover, the underlying mechanisms of HCC development and progression remain poorly understood. In the present study, the single-cell transcriptome of one in vivo HCC tumor sample, two in vitro HCC cell lines and normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells were an...

Authors: Meng X, Shi Y, Xiang X, Li C, Ge X, Pan K, Liang Y Abstract The expression of miR-101 in carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues of patients with liver cancer was studied. The carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues of 67 patients with liver cancer treated in Chinese PLA General Hospital were collected, and the expression of miR-101 in carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues was detected via reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The liver cancer HepG2 cell line was transfected with miR-101 mimics. Moreover, the influence of miR-101 overexpression on the proliferation of liver cancer cells was de...

Authors: Qi F, Wang L, Huang P, Zhao Z, Yang B, Xia J Abstract Cytokines play an important role in the development of tumors. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the mechanisms and cytokine level changes after transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The Short Time-series Expression Miner (STEM) program was utilized to cluster cytokine expression profiles from the day before TACE to day 21 post-TACE. Based on the identified significant signatures, Gene Ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathway analyses were performed. Cytokines were...

In conclusion, data revealed no correlation between ex vivo and in vivo studies explained by the collapse of the follicles in ex vivo skin permeation study, leaving only the lipoidal pathway for NE to pass through, thus only NE components, neither nanosizing nor other reported mechanisms, are the main influencing factors. In vivo experiments suggested that o/w NE changed ATOR pathway to follicular delivery leading to accumulation of NE in follicles and consequently a prolonged plasma profile.Graphical abstract

Conclusions: Hyperuricemia and hypertension may have a synergistic interaction towards renal function loss in addition to their independent impacts. Our findings may provide a straightforward illustration which is easy for the public to realize the hazard of coexistent hypertension and hyperuricemia on renal injury.

Selective embolisation was achieved by injecting TGMs into the left hepatic artery through a microcatheter in four healthy dogs. After embolisation, computed tomography (CT), biochemical analysis and h...

Conclusions: This is the first meta-analysis investigating adjuvant PNP therapy for DKD. PNP apparently exerted beneficial effects on kidney function and improved the metabolism of serum lipids by CM. Further, well-conducted, high-quality trials on DKD patients are needed to provide high-quality evidence. PMID: 31967924 [PubMed - in process]
