    ABSTRACT: To investigate the effects of matrine on apoptosis and expression of adhesion molecules in human multiple myeloma cell line RPMI8226 cells, RPMI8226 cells were incubated with indicated concentrations of matrine. The growth of RPMI8226 cells was observed by CCK-8 colorimetric assay and apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry using Annexin V-FITC/PI staining. The cell cycles were analyzed by PI staining. Flow cytometry using Annexin V-FITC/PI staining was used to detect the expression of cell adhesion molecules, including CD44, CD44v6, CD54 and CD106. The results showed that RPMI8226 cell viability in presence of matrine decreased markedly in a dose- and time-dependent manners. The apoptosis could be induced by matrine and its level increased following the augmentation of the drug concentration. After treated by matrine for 48 hours, a concentration-dependent increase of cells in G(0)/G(1) phase and a decrease in S phase could be detected, but no obvious change of cell count was found in G(2)/M phase. Treatment of RPMI8226 cells with matrine for 48 hours resulted in decrease of expression levels of CD44 and CD54, while expressions of CD44v6 and CD106 had no significant change. It is concluded that matrine induces in vitro apoptosis, suppresses proliferation in multiple myeloma cells and depresses expression of some adhesion molecules.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate a possible mechanism responsible for anti-apoptotic effects of melatonin and provide theoretical evidences for clinical therapy. Ischemia-reperfusion mediated neuronal cell injury model was constructed in cerebellar granule neurons (CGNs) by deprivation of glucose, serum and oxygen in media. After ischemia, melatonin was added to the test groups to reach differential concentration during reperfusion. DNA fragmentation, mitochondrial transmembrane potential, mitochondrial cytochrome c release and caspase-3 activity were observed after subjecting cerebellar granule neurons to oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD). The results showed that OGD induced typical cell apoptosis change, DNA ladder and apoptosis-related alterations in mitochondrial functions including depression of mitochondrial transmembrane potential (its maximal protection ratio was 73.26%) and release of cytochrome c (its maximal inhibition ratio was 42.52%) and the subsequent activation of caspase-3 (its maximal protection ratio was 59.32%) in cytoplasm. Melatonin reduced DNA damage and inhibited release of mitochondrial cytochrome c and activation of caspase-3. Melatonin can strongly prevent the OGD-induced loss of the mitochondria membrane potential. Our findings suggested that the direct inhibition of mitochondrial pathway might essentially contribute to its anti-apoptotic effects in neuronal ischemia-reperfusion.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the protective effect of amifostine on hydroquinone-induced apoptosis of bone marrow mononuclear cells in vitro. The mononuclear cells were separated and divided into four groups: blank control, amifostine group, hydroquinone group, amifostine + hydroquinone group. The cell apoptotic rate was examined in separated group at different time point, and apoptosis was detected by HT stain, then cell morphology was observed under fluorescent microscope and DNA fragments was tested by agarose gel electrophoresis. In addition, apoptotic and necrotic rate was detected by flow cytometer. After 10 hour culture, DNA ladder was detected in the hydroquinone group, but not in other groups. The apoptotic rate was not significantly different between amifostine group and blank control group at different culture time (P > 0.05). After 8 - 12 hour culture, the apoptotic rate in amifostine + hydroquinone group was significantly lower than that in the group of hydroquinone alone (P < 0.01). After 18 - 48 hour culture, the necrotic rate in amifostine + hydroquinone group was lower than that in the group of hydroquinone alone (P < 0.05). Amifostine can protect cell from hydroguinone-induced bone marrow damage through inhibition on cell apoptosis, and decrease in cell necrosis.
