  1. Liu B, Chen L, Li S, Wang Z, Cheng W. Smac/DIABLO regulates the apoptosis of hypertrophic scar fibroblasts. Int J Mol Med. 2013;32:615-22 pubmed publisher
    ..In conclusion, Smac/DIABLO decreases the proliferation and increases the apoptosis of HSFBs. To our knowledge, the data from our study suggest for the first time that Smac/DIABLO is a novel therapeutic target for HS. ..
  2. Xu S, Zhong M, Zhang L, Wang Y, Zhou Z, Hao Y, et al. Overexpression of Tfam protects mitochondria against beta-amyloid-induced oxidative damage in SH-SY5Y cells. FEBS J. 2009;276:3800-9 pubmed publisher
    ..These beneficial effects may be attributable to the roles of Tfam in maintaining mtDNA nucleoid formation and mtDNA copy number. ..
