Article: [Effects of the transplantation of adipose-derived stem cell on the expression of Notch1-Dll4 signaling pathway in brain of rats with focal cerebral ischemia].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To investigate the effects of the transplantation of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC) on the expression of Notch1-Dll4 signaling pathway in brains of rats with focal cerebral ischemia. Sixty-five male adult Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 4 groups: sham-operated group, MCAO (occlusion of middle cerebral artery) group, ADSC-treated group and ADSC & DAPT-treated group. A permanent model of focal cerebral ischemia was established by modified Zea-Longa's method. At 24 hours post-MCAO, 1×10(6) DAPT-labeled ADSC were injected into the lateral ventricle of rats in the ADSC-treated group and the same dose of ADSC with DAPT (γ secretase inhibitor, N-[N-(3,5-difluorophenacetyl)-L-alanyl]-S-phenylglycine t-butyl ester) to the rats in the ADSC & DAPT-treated group. Rats are sacrificed at 4, 7, 14 and 28 d post-MCAO. The amount of microvessels was quantified. And the levels of Notch1, Dll4 and Hes1 were detected by Western blot and immunohistochemistry. The density of microvessels significantly increased in the ADSC group (13.93 ± 0.50, 17.90 ± 0.62, 20.78 ± 0.80, 17.28 ± 1.65) versus the MCAO group (7.03 ± 0.22, 10.83 ± 0.63, 16.35 ± 0.54, 13.80 ± 2.38) (P < 0.05) and the ADSC + DAPT group (5.73 ± 0.30, 7.58 ± 0.52, 7.65 ± 0.45, 6.48 ± 1.47) (P < 0.05). And compared with the MCAO group (1.29 ± 0.07, 2.13 ± 0.21, 1.92 ± 0.03) and the ADSC + DAPT group (1.162 ± 0.099, 1.684 ± 0.180, 1.041 ± 0.040), the expressions of Notch1, Dll4 and Hes1 proteins were significantly up-regulated at 14d in the ADSC group (2.52 ± 0.22, 4.52 ± 0.36, 2.62 ± 0.05) (P < 0.05). The transplantation of ADSC can improve angiogenesis by up-regulating the post-MCAO expression of Notch1-Dll4 signaling pathway in rats.Zhonghua yi xue za zhi 09/2011; 91(33):2348-52.
Article: [Outgrowth of neuronal axons on adipose-derived stem cell transplanting for treatment of cerebral infarction in rats].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To investigate the effects of adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC) transplanting on the outgrowth of neuronal axons and the expressions of GFAP, Neuritin, NF-200 in the brain post focal cerebral ischemia in rats. 54 male adult Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: sham-operated group, middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) group and MCAO+ADSC-treated group (n=18 in each group). A permenant focal cerebal ischemia model was established using modified Longa's method ADSC was labeled by DAPI before the transplantation. One day after MCAO, 30 μL of cell suspension containing 1×10(6); cells were injected into the lateral ventricle of MCAO+ADSC-treated group. At 7 d, 14 d and 28 d after MCAO, the expressions of GFAP, Neuritin and NF-200 were detected in ischemic region by Western blot and Immunofluorescence analysis. DAPI staining positive cells were observed around the cerebral infarcted area in the ADSC group. The expressions of Neuritin, NF200 were higher, but GFAP was lower than that of the MCAO group at 7 d, 14 d and 28 d (P<0.05). The transplantation of ADSC can induce regeneration and repairment of impaired neuronal axons in rat brain after cerebral ischemia, partly by inhibiting the expression of GFAP and enhancing the expressions of Neuritin, NF-200 in the brain.Xi bao yu fen zi mian yi xue za zhi = Chinese journal of cellular and molecular immunology 08/2011; 27(8):868-71.
Article: [Study on biology and epidemiological characteristics of vibrio cholerae non-O1 strains isolated from environmental waters in Foshan city].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the distribution of serotype and the positive rate of toxins among vibrio cholerae non-O(1) isolated from environmental waters in Foshan city. Water specimens were collected from river and cultured for vibrio cholerae non-O(1). The PCR method was used to detect cholerae enterotoxin (CT) gene; the ELISA method was used to detect heat-stable toxin (ST) and heat-labile toxin (LT). 478 vibrio cholerae non-O(1) strains were isolated from 1 644 water specimens, with a positive rate of 29.07%. Serological assay showed that the main serotype of vibrio cholerae non-O(1) in Foshan city is VBO(7). Positive rate of CT, ST and LT were 1.91%, 13.14% and 12.17%, respectively. A few non-O(1) strains were found to have several virulent factors simultaneously, and the results suggest that vibrio cholerae non-O(1) in environmental waters is potentially pathogenic and may affect people's health. It is necessary to pay attention to the prevention of diarrhoea caused by vibrio cholerae.Zhonghua yu fang yi xue za zhi [Chinese journal of preventive medicine] 02/2004; 38(1):47-9.
