...in the number of Bax and caspase-3-positive hepatocytes, a significantly increase in levels of the activities of biochemistry markers (serum alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP)). In contrast, in the groups given D-GaIN and EA, a decrease in the damage of the liver tissue, a significant decrease activated Bax and caspase-3-positive hepatocytes, while increase in the number o...

...ed to assess the cleaved caspase-3, -8, -9, and cleaved poly-ADP-ribose polymerase. Protein expression of extracellular-regulated kinase were detected. Finally, data analysed statistically to determine significantly differences among groups. Results showed that breakpoint cluster 2 was a direct target of miR-16, and the expression was negatively correlated. Moreover, miR-16 promoted apoptosis suppressing breakpoint cluster 2 through phosphorylation of extracel...

... level of iNOS, MMP9 and caspase-3, -8 and -9 in human colon (HCT) and gastric (AGS) cancer cells. Cell lines were divided into untreated (control) group and groups exposed to 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, 1 and 10 mg/ml of testosterone enanthate. The cytotoxic effect of testosterone enanthate was measured using MTT assay method. iNOS, MMP9, caspase-3, -8 and -9 expression level were evaluated by real-time PCR and the caspases activity ...

...; 0.05), Bax protein and caspase-3 protein expression was decreased (P < 0.05). In conclusion, propofol and vitexin could up-regulate expression of Bcl-2 protein, down-regulate expression of Bax and caspase-3 protein, inhibit cell apoptosis, reduce liver damage indexes, and have certain protective effects on liver ischemia-reperfusion injury. The effect of propofol combined with vitexin is better than that of propofol and...

... (BCL2-associated X) and caspase-3 decreased. The expression of p-PI3K (phosphorylated phosphatidyl inositol 3- kinase), p-AKT (phosphorylated protein kinase B) and Bcl-2 decreased in model and HG group, while the expression of Bax, Caspase-3, and Cleaved Caspase-3 increased. After BHD intervention, p-PI3K, p-AKT, Bcl-2 expression increased, while Bax, Caspase-3

...ue was also isolated for caspase-3 activity. Our result showed that naringenin pretreatment significantly increased cardiac dysfunction via scavenged free radicals and a reduction of inflammatory reaction. Dose-dependent treatment of naringenin significantly altered the CK-MB, HDL, LDL, creatinine, cholesterol, CRP, Ca2+, Na+ and K+, respectively. A significant alleviating change in these biochemical parameters along with caspase-3

However, intoxicated groups treated with PN and PM showed marked improvement in the measured parameters. Therefore, PN and PM have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, especially PM, which showed better improvement than PN against CCl4 hepatotoxicity in rat...

...D4, CD8, CD20, CD68, and caspase-3 were examined under a light microscope. The histological alterations caused by the hydatid cyst were cell degeneration, necrosis, hemorrhage, congestion, and fibrosis. The findings revealed that the CD3 T cells were the most predominant inflammatory cell in hepatic mice tissue. Also, CD4 Helper T cells, CD8 Killer T cells, CD20 memory cells, and CD68 macrophages were detected in the infected mice. Most samples of mice express...

...d results indicated that caspase-3, 8-OHdG, and MDA levels significantly increased compared to the control (p < 0.05). The kidney and muscle tissues indicated a significant decrease in antioxidant enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px)) compared to the control (p< 0.05). Therefore, these data may reflect one of the molecular pathways that play a role in tebuconazole toxicity.

...is-related genes Bax and caspase-3 were detected by WB. The contents of lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), creatine kinase (CK), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Results showed that compared with the control group, the low-dose propofol group had increased NO, decreased ET-1 and cTnT contents (P<0.05), and high-dose propofol group had further increased NO and further decreased ET- 1 and cTnT c...

A total of 20 male mouses were divided into five groups, K- (negative control, no treatment), K+ (positive control, 40 mg diazinon/kg BW); P1 (40 mg diazinon/kg BW + 200 mg black cumin/kg BW); P2 (40 mg diazinon/kg BW + 400 mg black cumin/kg BW); P3 (40 mg diazinon/kg BW + 600 mg black cumin/kg BW) throughout trials. The results showed that the black cumin seeds powder significantly decr...
