- Induction of apoptosis by 15d-PGJ2 via ROS formation: an alternative pathway without PPARγ activation in non-small cell lung carcinoma A549 cellsJun Jie Wang
Department of Life Sciences, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 701, Taiwan, ROC
Prostaglandins Other Lipid Mediat 94:104-11. 2011..Moreover, these findings support the use of quercetin and PPARγ agonists in non-small cell lung carcinoma...
- Inhibitory effects of inhaled complex traditional Chinese medicine on early and late asthmatic responses induced by ovalbumin in sensitized guinea pigsHung Chou Chang
Department of Life Sciences, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 701, Taiwan
BMC Complement Altern Med 11:80. 2011..There is evidence to suggest that TCMs are effective as a cure for this allergenic disease administered via gastric tubes in animal studies; however, their efficacy, safety and side effects as an asthmatic therapy are still unclear...
- Induction of COX-2 protein expression by vanadate in A549 human lung carcinoma cell line through EGF receptor and p38 MAPK-mediated pathwayPei Shan Chien
Institute of Biotechnology, National Cheng Kung University, No 1 University Rd 701, Tainan, Taiwan
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 339:562-8. 2006..Together, we suggested that EGF receptor and p38 MAPK signaling pathway may be involved in vanadate-induced COX-2 protein expression in A549 human lung carcinoma cell line...
- Induction of apoptosis in non-small cell lung carcinoma A549 cells by PGD₂ metabolite, 15d-PGJ₂Jun Jie Wang
Department of Life Sciences, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 701, Taiwan, Republic of China
Cell Biol Int 35:1089-96. 2011..We found that PGD2 metabolites induce apoptosis effectively and that 15d-PGJ2 (15-deoxy-Δ12,14-prostaglandin J2) is a likely candidate for the principal apoptotic inducer in PGD2-induced apoptosis in NSCLC A549 cells...
