Cardiac-specific expression of the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) under the control of a TnIc promoter confers a heart protective effect after myocardial infarction (MI).
Curr Gene Ther
PUBLISHED: 02-04-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Uncontrolled therapeutic gene expression and neovascularization in non-specific tissues has lowered the safety of gene therapy. The aim of the study was to identify a cardiac-specific promoter to control target gene expression in heart tissue in vitro and in vivo.

Hide Abstract
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is one of the major angiogenic factors being studied for the treatment of ischemic heart diseases. Our previous study demonstrated adenovirus-HGF was effective in myocardial ischemia models. The first clinical safety study showed a positive effect in patients with severe and diffused triple coronary disease.

Hide Abstract
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is one of the oncogenes closely associated with the development and prognosis of breast carcinoma. Down-regulation of HER2 mRNA by antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (ASO) HER2 has been suggested to be a feasible treatment for patients with breast carcinoma.

Effective therapy for radiation-induced intestinal injury is currently unavailable. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are expected to be useful in repairing intestinal damage caused by irradiation. We determined whether the MSC-derived bioactive components could protect radiation-induced small intestine injury in mice.

A continuous cell alkaline lysis, neutralization, and clarification combination process for production of plasmid pUDK-HGF.
Biotechnol. Appl. Biochem.

Hide Abstract
Plasmid DNA for biopharmaceutical applications is produced easily in Escherichia coli bacteria. The cell lysis is the most crucial step for purification of plasmid DNA. In this paper, we describe a continuous cell alkaline lysis, neutralization, and clarification combination process for production of plasmid pUDK-HGF using hollow fiber ultrafiltration column as a lysis chamber and compare the plasmid DNA yield and homogeneity with the T-connector and manual processes, respectively. The results show that the plasmid pUDK-HGF yield of the combination process is 13% higher than manual lysis, twice higher than using T-connector. When the proportion of lysed cells and neutralization solution is 3:1, the plasmid pUDK-HGF yield can improve by 70%. This process could be easily scaled up to meet the industrial scale for cell lysis.

Plasmid pUDK-HGF encoding human hepatocyte growth factor gene attenuates gentamicin-induced kidney injury in rats.
Exp. Toxicol. Pathol.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The clinical application of gentamicin has been limited by its nephrotoxicity, which is characterized by kidney injury, interstitial fibrosis and progressive renal impairment. In this paper, we examine effects of plasmid pUDK-HGF which encodes the human hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) gene on gentamicin-induced renal injury in rats. The kidney injury was intentionally induced by injecting gentamicin intraperitoneally. On the third day after last gentamicin treatment, pUDK-HGF was injected into the left kidney tissue only once via a sterile back incision. At day 30 after gentamicin treatment, RI, Scr, BUN, 24 h-UTP and apoptotic cell death were determined. Tubulointerstitial injury and the renal interstitial vessel regeneration were evaluated by histological scoring. pUDK-HGF treatment significantly improved the renal function with decreasing RI, Scr and BUN. 24 h-UTP also presented ameliorating trend compared to the control group with kidney injury. pUDK-HGF treatment significantly decreased the score of tubulointerstitial injury and enhanced angiogenesis, also prevented kidney cells from apoptosis. The tubulointerstitial injury was significantly reduced in the pUDK-HGF injected left kidney and right kidney also showed some improvements. Our results showed that pUDK-HGF may become a novel therapeutic agent for kidney injury and renal fibrosis.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
