Apoptosis-stimulating protein 2 of p53 (ASPP2) has a variety of biological functions, and is involved in cellular apoptosis, autophagy and inflammatory reaction. However, the role of ASPP2 in acute hepatic injury remains unclear.

Heme oxygenase (HO) activity is possessed by inducible (HO-1) and constitutive (HO-2) proteins. HO-1 protects against ischemic and nephrotoxic acute kidney injury (AKI). We previously demonstrated tha...
Apoptosis and autophagy are dynamic processes that determine the fate of cells. Vitamin D receptor (VDR) deficiency in the intestine leads to abnormal Paneth cells and impaired autophagy function. Her...
Sulforaphane (SFN), a dietary isothiocyanate that is mainly found in cruciferous vegetables, possesses anti-oxidative and anticancer activity and modulates inflammation. However, little is known about...
Doxorubicin, an agent used to treat a variety of cancers, is cardiotoxic by triggering cardiomyocyte apoptosis. We previously showed that treating cultured cardiomyocytes with human high density lipop...

The purpose of his study is to show that Protein C Concentrate is a safe and effective treatment for subjects with congenital protein C deficiency. Depending on the type of treatment requi...
Rationale: The investigators hypothesize that EPO protects against apoptosis after acute ischemia in man and that it is detectable using the annexin-A5 model. Objective: Doe...
This is a data collection study with the purpose of capturing dosing and treatment outcome data in subjects with severe congenital protein C deficiency who were treated with protein C conc...
The CCCH tandem zinc finger proteins are members of a small family of proteins that regulate the stability of certain types of mRNA containing so-called class II AU-rich elements in their ...
Individuals with a deficiency of the Alpha 1-antitrypsin (AAT) protein are at risk for developing emphysema and liver damage. Researchers have developed a way to introduce normal AAT genes...
An autosomal dominant disorder showing decreased levels of plasma protein S antigen or activity, associated with venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. PROTEIN S is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protein that inhibits blood clotting by serving as a cofactor for activated PROTEIN C (also a vitamin K-dependent protein), and the clinical manifestations of its deficiency are virtually identical to those of protein C deficiency. Treatment with heparin for acute thrombotic processes is usually followed by maintenance administration of coumarin drugs for the prevention of recurrent thrombosis.

A nucleocytoplasmic transport protein that binds to ALPHA KARYOPHERINS and RAN GTP BINDING PROTEIN inside the CELL NUCLEUS and participates in their export into CYTOPLASM. It is also associated with the regulation of APOPTOSIS and microtubule assembly.
The vitamin K-dependent cofactor of activated PROTEIN C. Together with protein C, it inhibits the action of factors VIIIa and Va. A deficiency in protein S; (PROTEIN S DEFICIENCY); can lead to recurrent venous and arterial thrombosis.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of proteins in the diet, characterized by adaptive enzyme changes in the liver, increase in amino acid synthetases, and diminution of urea formation, thus conserving nitrogen and reducing its loss in the urine. Growth, immune response, repair, and production of enzymes and hormones are all impaired in severe protein deficiency. Protein deficiency may also arise in the face of adequate protein intake if the protein is of poor quality (i.e., the content of one or more amino acids is inadequate and thus becomes the limiting factor in protein utilization).

A BCL-2-like protein that has a C-terminal BCL-2 homology (BH3) domain and forms heterodimers with other BCL-2 FAMILY PROTEINS. It is a strong inducer of APOPTOSIS and ANOIKIS; several isoforms are expressed (BimEL, Bim L, Bim-alpha, Bim-s; and Bim-gamma) that have different potencies for inducing apoptosis.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
