Cadmium affects autophagy in the human intestinal cells Caco-2 through ROS-mediated ERK activation

Cadmium affects autophagy in the human intestinal cells Caco-2 through ROS-mediated ERK activation

Cadmium is a poisonous steel that enters the meals chain. Following oral ingestion, the intestinal epithelium has the capability to build up excessive ranges of this steel. We’ve got beforehand proven that Cd induces ERK1/2 activation in differentiated however not proliferative human enterocytic-like Caco-2 cells. As autophagy is a dynamic course of that performs a…

Development of a novel reporter gene assay to evaluate antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis for anti-CD20 therapeutic antibodies

Development of a novel reporter gene assay to evaluate antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis for anti-CD20 therapeutic antibodies

Greater than 100 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have been accepted by FDA. The mechanism of motion (MoA) includes in neutralization of a selected goal by way of the Fab area and Fc effector features by Fc area, whereas the latter embody complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) and antibody-dependent mobile phagocytosis (ADCP). ADCP has been acknowledged one of the…

Modified Huangqi Chifeng Decoction Attenuates Proteinuria by Reducing Podocyte Injury in a Rat Model of Immunoglobulin a Nephropathy

Modified Huangqi Chifeng Decoction Attenuates Proteinuria by Reducing Podocyte Injury in a Rat Model of Immunoglobulin a Nephropathy

Modified Huangqi Chifeng decoction (MHCD) has been used to scale back proteinuria in immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) for a few years. Beforehand, we’ve got demonstrated its protecting function in glomerular mesangial cells. Podocyte harm, one other key issue related to proteinuria in IgAN, has additionally attracted rising consideration. Nonetheless, whether or not MHCD can scale…
