Objective To explore the potential mechanism of artemisinin in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by network pharmacology and molecular docking technology. Methods The corresponding targets of natural product artemisinin were obtained from PubChem, Swiss Target Prediction and PharmMapper databases, targets related to PCOS were obtained through GeneCards and DisGeNET databases; the intersection target genes of Artemisinin and PCOS were screened by Draw Venn diagram. Then the protein-protein interaction network (PPI) was constructed according to the intersection target genes through the STRING Database, and the core targets were screened by Cytoscape. Besides, gene ontology (GO) function and Kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes (KEGG) pathway analysis was performed by DAVID Database, and finally the data were analyzed visually by the online platform. Molecular docking of artemisinin and core targets were performed by Chemdraw, Pymol, Auto Dock Tools and RCSB PDB database. Results A total of 229 targets of artemisinin and 1292 targets of PCOS were screened out, 90 overlapping targets were obtained by Draw Venn diagram, and 5 potential core targets, AKT1, ESR1, MMP9, PPARG, MMP2, were mainly act on PI3K Akt, MAPK, RAS, endocrine resistance and other signal pathways. Molecular docking results showed that there were molecular binding sites between artemisinin and core targets. Conclusion It is preliminarily analyzed that artemisinin may play a therapeutic role in PCOS through multiple targets and mechanisms.

Objective To evaluate the relationships of the serum levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and adiponectin with the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in senile metabolic syndrome (MS)patients. Methods The 74 cases with MS and 30 health controls (control group) were enrolled. Mini-mental state examination (MMSE), montreal cognitive assessment (MoCA), digit-symbol test (DST), auditory verbal memory test (AVMT), trail making test(TMT), sunderland clock drawing test (CDT) and verbal fluency test (VFT) were applied to evaluate cognitive function. Based on the cognitive assessment, MS patients were divided into two groups: 39 cases with MCI (MS+MCI group) and 35 cases without cognitive impairment (MS group). The levels of MMP-9, ICAM-1 and adiponectin were measured by ELISA. Biochemical variables were measured by routine methods in all subjects. Results (1)MS+MCI group showed the higher levels of BMI, SBP, FBG and MMP-9 (all P<0.05) and lower level of adiponectin (P<0.05) than did the MS group. And MS group had higher levels of MMP-9 and ICAM-1 (P<0.01) and lower adiponectin level (P<0.01) than did the control group. (2)Spearman's correlation analysis showed that the serum levels of MMP-9 (r=-0.794, P<0.001) and ICAM-l (r=-0.501, P<0.001) were negatively correlated with adiponectin. However, MMP-9 was positively correlated with ICAM-1 (r=0.481, P=0.006). (3)Multiple linear regression analysis indicated that there was linear relationship of MoCA with MMP-9 (β=-3.438, P=0.0019), adiponectin (β=1.337, P=0.006), SBP (β=-0.058, P=0.003) and FBG (β=-0.227, P=0.049). (4)Stepwise logistic analysis showed that both high MMP-9 (OR=1.007) and low adiponectin (OR=0.359) were risk factors for the decline of cognitive function. Conclusions Elderly patients with MS may show deterioration in memory, calculation and visuospatial perception. Elevated inflammatory factors might contribute, in combination with abnormal metabolism, to MCI. MMP-9 might contribute to neuronal degeneration. However, adiponectin could strongly counteract the risk factors for cognitive impairment.

Objective To explore the dynamic alteration of intracellular free calcium concentration([ Ca2+]i),ATP level and membrane Ca2+-Mg2+ATPase acti vity of erythrocyte in the patients with acute cerebral infarction(CI).Methods we examined [Ca2+]i,ATP level and membrane Ca2+-Mg2+ATPase activity of erythrocyte in 30 patients with acute CI and 28 health controls by Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorter. Results [Ca2+]i in erythrocyte increased significantly in CI group(P<0.01),while the ATP level and membrane Ca2+-Mg 2+ATPase activity were lower than the controls(P<0.05,P<0.0 01).The above result was more remarkable in the elderly group than the young one .The dynamic alteration of [Ca2+]i in erythrocyte increased obv iously during 1~2 days after the attack,and reached the peak in 3~7 day s,it decreased slowly to the slightly low level at the beginning of th e attack in about two weeks,but it was still higher than the controls.The dynamic alteration of ATP level and Ca2+-Mg2+ATPase activit y after acute CI,it decreased significantly during 1~2 days after the at tack,and reached the lowest in 3~4 days.this status could last about one week.Then both of them increased slightly. There was remarkable negative correlation betwe en RBC [Ca2+]i and ATP level or membrance Ca2+-Mg2+ A TPase activity (r=-0.904,r=-0.978,P<0.05).There was positive correl ation between ATP lev el and membrane Ca2+-Mg2+ATPase activity(r=0.835,P<0.05 ).Conclusion There was calcium overload [Ca2+]i in th e intracellular of erythrocyte in acute CI,ATP level and membrane Ca2+ -Mg2+ATPase activity of erythrocyte CI was involved in the pathologi cal course of calcium overload,and related to the age.

Objective To investigate the expression of heat shock protein 70(HSP70) and c-fos,the presence of apoptosis and the neuroprotective effects of Cudrania tricuspidata root extrate(Ecr) after focal cerebral ischemic reperfusion in rats.Methods Models of middle cerebral artery occlusion(MCAO) were used in this study.The rats in Ecr pretreated ischemia reperfusion(IR) group were fed with Ecr(2 ml tid) for 5 days before MCAO.The brain specimen were took at different reperfusion times: 1 h,6 h,12 h,24 h,3 d and 7 d after recirculation.Then immunohistochemistry,insitu hybridization,terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling(TUNEL) were used to detect the expression of HSP70,c-fos gene and cell apoptosis in the brains.Positive results were semiquantitatively analyzed.Results IR could induce the expression of HSP70 and c-fos.HSP70 was detected at 6 h following reperfusion and peaked at 24 h both in cortical and basal ganglia regions.c-fos was markedly expressed at 1 h and the level peaked at 6 h in the ischemic hemispheres,and then reduced gradually.The TUNEL positive cells were markedly observed at 6 h.After treatment with Ecr,the positive reaction cells both of HSP70 and c-fos were significantly increased(all(P
