以小鼠腎小管IMCD3細胞株探討纖毛生成和上皮細胞極化的關係

纖毛(cilia)病變是許多疾病的成因,像是多囊性腎臟病、巴德-畢德氏症候群等,但目前仍不清楚纖毛生成的機制。我們的研究初步證實纖毛生成和閉鎖小帶(Tight junction)可能有密切關聯性,且閉...

CHST11基因表現量對於肺癌細胞產生上皮間質轉化(EMT)之影響 The Expression of CHST11 Controls Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition in lung cancer cells

肺癌的轉移是治療失敗的主因之一,因此了解癌細胞轉移的機制對於治療肺癌極為重要。上皮間質轉化(EMT)是癌細胞轉移的起始,且代謝體異常更是影響肺癌細胞EMT的關鍵,然而相關機制仍不明確。本研究對肺腺癌細...

味噌萃取物Soyasaponin I 抑制肺癌細胞轉移並且減少細胞激素分泌及抑制惡體質進展

研究指出Soyasaponin I 是味噌中的一種成分,其效果可以抗發炎,因此,本實驗想使用Soyasaponin I 探討其是否能應用於肺癌治療,及其對肺癌的轉移及癌症引起惡體質影響。 方式:使用肺...

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a prevalent disease of the West which pathogenesis is driven by ...

探討CHI3L1對M1巨噬細胞極化及其功能之影響

癌症多年來高居國人十大死因之首,過去研究顯示慢性發炎與癌症生成密切相關。在發炎反應中巨噬細胞的角色相當關鍵,但在腫瘤微環境下反而幫助腫瘤細胞生長。CHI3L1廣泛表現在腫瘤組織與發炎相關的疾病,在發炎...

幾丁寡醣對藍光LED造成視網膜色素上皮細胞傷害的保護作用 The protective effect of chitosan oligosaccharide on blue light LED induced retinal pigment epithelial cell damage

3C產品及LED燈多以藍光照明,長期照射易導致視網膜黃斑部病變。其作用機轉是藍光引起視網膜細胞過氧化物質 (ROS)增加,造成細胞的氧化壓力進而引發細胞凋亡。幾丁寡醣 (Chitosan oligos...
