Objective To study whether bergapten (BG) protects PC12 cells from oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) induced cell injury by regulating long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) opioid receptor gene (Oprm1) expression. Methods PC12 cells were divided into control (Con) group, OGD group, OGD+ low concentration BG (BG-L) group, OGD+medium concentration BG (BG-M) group, OGD + high concentration BG (BG-H) group, OGD + pcDNA group, OGD+pcDNA-Oprm1 group, OGD+BG+si-NC group, OGD+BG+si-Oprm1 group. The malondialdehyde (MDA) content, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities were measured by the kits. Cell apoptosis rate was analysed by flow cytometry. The expression level of Oprm1 was analysed by Real-time PCR. Results Compared with the Con group, the apoptosis rate and MDA content of PC12 cells in OGD group increased significantly, whereas Oprm1 expression, SOD and GSH-Px activity decreased significantly (P < 0. 05). Compared with the OGD group, the apoptosis rate and MDA content of PC12 cells in the OGD + BG-L group, OGD + BG-M group, OGD + BG-H group were significantly reduced, whereas the Oprm1 expression, SOD and GSH-Px activities increased significantly (P < 0. 05). Compared with the OGD+pcDNA group, the apoptosis rate and MDA content of the PC12 cells in the OGD+pcDNA-Oprm1 group reduced significantly, whereas the SOD and GSH-Px activities increased significantly (P<0. 05). Compared with the OGD+BG+si-NC group, the apoptosis rate and MDA content of PC12 cells in the OGD+BG+si-Oprm1 group increased significantly, whereas the SOD and GSH-Px activities decreased significantly (P < 0. 05). Conclusion Bergapten may alleviate OGD-induced PC12 cell injury, which is correlated to the up-regulation of lncRNA Oprm1 expression.

Aim To explore the effects of putative receptor protein related to ATI (APJ) homodimer on the behaviors-the proliferation, migration and tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HU-VECs). Methods HUVECs at logarithmic growth stage were randomly divided into PBS, Apelin-13 + TM1 (APJ monomer group) and Apelin-13 + PBS group (APJ homodimer group). Western blot and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time of Fligh Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) were used to detect the expression of APJ and APJ homodimer in HUVECs, respectively. Real-Time Cell Analyzers (RT-CA) was used to detect the concentration of the maximum effect of Apelin-13. Cell viability was detected by CCK-8. The cell migration ability was detected by scratch test, and the number of tubes formed on matri-gel that made artificial basement membrane was counted. Results Western blot and MALDI-TOF MS showed that APJ and APJ homodimer were expressed in HUVECs. The EC50 of Apelin-13 was 2.26 x 10

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the effect of Qinghuang Powder (QHP,()combined with Bupi Yishen Decoction (BPYS, ) on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) patients with refractory cytopenia with multilineage dysplasia (RCMD) and determine the change of DNA methylation in MDS-RCMD patients after the treatment of Chinese medicine formula.@*METHODS@#All 308 MDS-RCMD patients were treated with QHP combined with BPYS for 2 months at least, absolute neutrophil count (ANC), hemoglobin (Hb), platelets (PLT), primitive bone marrow cells and chromosome karyotype were chosen as the main evaluation indexes to analyze the treatment effect according to criteria from the MDS International Working Group. Then 43 bone marrow samples from 15 MDS-RCMD patients and 28 healthy donors were obtained for the examination of DNA methylation. Gene Ontology (GO) and Pathway analysis were applied to analyze the methylation data.@*RESULTS@#The overall MDS response rate to QHP was 61.68% (190/360) including hematologic improvement-neutrophil (HI-N) or hematologic improvement-erythroid (HI-E) or hematologic improvement-platelet (HI-P). Patients with anemia had a better response rate than patients with neutropenia or thrombocypenia (55.88% vs 31.54% or 55.88% vs. 36.9%). The DNA methylation microarray analysis disclosed that 4,257 hypermethylated genes were demethylated upon the treatment with QHP and BPYS. GO analysis and Pathway analysis showed that these demethylated genes were involved in a lot of tumor-related pathways and functions.@*CONCLUSIONS@#QHP combined with BPYS could effectively treat MDS-RCMD patients through hematologic improvement (HI-N, HI-P or HI-E) and PLT and RBC transfusion independence due to the demethylation, thereby providing another choice for the treatment of patients with MDS-RCMD.
