@#Abstract: Objective To elucidate the potential mechanism of Jindanjiangan Capsule in the treatment of liver fibrosis by network pharmacology and molecular docking. Methods Active ingredients and targets of Jindanjiangan Capsules were searched by Traditional Chinese Medicine Systems Pharmacology Database and Analysis Platform (TCMSP) and HERB databases, and the disease targets were screened by DisGeNET and Therapeutic Target Database (TTD) databases. The targets of the active ingredients of Jindanjiangan Capsule were matched with the disease targets, and the common targets were imported into the String database platform to construct a protein-protein interaction network (PPI) network. CytoNCA tool of Cytoscape 3.9.1 software was used for topological analysis to screen key targets. Traditional Chinese Medicine-Key Active IngredientsKey Target Network was constructed by Cytoscape 3.9.1 Software. KEGG enrichment analysis of key targets was performed through the DAVID platform. The molecular docking of active ingredients and targets was performed to verify the above results using LeDock software. Results By screening, 180 potential active ingredients and 1 340 targets of Jindanjiangan Capsule and 1 060 targets of liver fibrosis, and 273 common targets were obtained. 29 key targets related to liver fibrosis were screened out by PPI network interaction, and verified by KEGG analysis and molecular docking. Jindanjiangan capsule acts on key targets such as EGFR, MMP9, PTGS2, ESR1, PIK3CA, F2, PPARG, and PTPN11 through active components such as isovitexin, quercetin 7-O- β -D-glucoside, (3S, 6S) -3- (benzyl) -6- (4-hydroxybenzyl) piperazine-2, 5-quinone, 6-Osyringoyl-8-O-acetylshanzhiside methyl ester, tanshinone II, nortanshinone, capillaris chromone, and etanone. The specific mechanism may be related to HIF-1 signaling pathway, C-type lectin receptor signaling pathway, Toll-like receptor signaling pathway, tumor necrosis factor signaling pathway, relaxin signaling pathway, FoxO signaling pathway and so on. Conclusion Jindanjiangan capsule can effectively treat hepatic fibrosis through multi-component, multi-target and multi-pathway.

@#Objective: To investigate the relationship between drug resistance and expression of ABC-binding cassette subfamily B member 1 (ABCB1) as well as its promoter methylation in pancreatic cancer. Methods: Fifteen pairs of pancreatic cancerous tissues and corresponding para-cancerous tissues, which were pathologically verified in Fujian Cancer Hospital from August 2015 to August 2018, were collected for this study; in addition, 3 cases of normal pancreatic tissues and pancreatic cancer cell line SW1990 were also collected. Gemcitabine (GEM)-resistant human pancreatic cancer cell line SW1990/GZ was induced by intermittent concentration gradient multiplication method. The expression level ofABCB1 in SW1990 cells, SW1990/GZ cells, pancreatic cancer tissues and apara-cancerous tissues was detected by qPCR. Methylation of ABCB1 promoter region in SW1990 cells, SW1990/GZ cells and pancreatic cancerous tissues was determined by MSP-PCR. Results: Compared with SW1990 cells, the morphology of SW1990/GZ cells showed more vacuoles, more mitotic images, clumpy growth and increased drug resistance (P<0.05). ABCB1 expression in pancreatic cancer tissues was significantly higher than that in para-cancerous tissues (P<0.01). The expression of ABCB1 in SW1990 and SW1990/GZ cells was significantly higher than that in normal pancreatic tissues (P<0.05 or P<0.01), and the expression of ABCB1 in SW1990/GZ cells was higher than that in SW1990 cells (P<0.05). ABCB1 promoters in SW1990, SW1990/GZ cells and normal pancreatic tissues were hypomethylated. Rate of methylation in pancreatic can cerous tissues and normalpancreatic tissues was 6.7%(1/15) and 0.00%(0/3) respectively,and the difference was statistically insignificant (all P>0.05). Conclusion: Increased ABCB1 expression in pancreatic cancer tissues and cells is associated with drug resistance, but its gene expression does not depend on promoter methylation regulation.
