The mitochondrial pathway is involved in sodium fluoride (NaF)-induced renal apoptosis in mice.
The objective of the present study was to explore the molecular mechanism of apoptosis induced by sodium fluoride (NaF) in the mouse kidney by using the methods of flow cytometry, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR), western blotting, and experimental pathology. 240 four-week-old ICR mice were randomly divided into 4
Protective properties of sesamin against fluoride-induced oxidative stress and apoptosis in kidney of carp (Cyprinus carpio) via JNK signaling pathway.
Sesamin, a major lignan derived from sesame seeds, has been reported to have many benefits and medicinal properties. However, its protective effects against fluoride-induced injury in kidney of fish have not been clarified. Previously we found that fluoride exposure caused damage and apoptosis in the kidneys of the common carp,
LS8 cell apoptosis induced by NaF through p-ERK and p-JNK - a mechanism study of dental fluorosis
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible biological mechanism of dental fluorosis at a molecular level. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Cultured LS8 were incubated with serum-free medium containing selected concentrations of NaF (0???2?mM) for either 24 or 48?h. Subcellular microanatomy was characterized using TEM; meanwhile, selected biomolecules were analysed using various biochemistry techniques. Transient
Effects of NaF on the expression of intracellular Ca2+ fluxes and apoptosis and the antagonism of taurine in murine neuron
Sodium fluoride (NaF) has been shown to be cytotoxic and produces inflammatory responses in humans. However, the cellular mechanisms underlying the neurotoxicity of fluoride are unclear. The present study aims to define a possible mechanism of NaF-induced neurotoxicity with respect to apoptosis and intracellular Ca(2+) fluxes. Meanwhile, the cytoprotective role
Effect of sodium fluoride on the expression of bcl-2 family and osteopontin in rat renal tubular cells.
Our earlier studies showed that the apoptosis of renal tubules can be induced by sodium fluoride (NaF). The present study was designed to estimated the effects of B-cell lymphoma/leukemia 2 (Bcl-2), Bcl-2-associated protein X (Bax), and osteopontin (OPN) on the apoptosis of renal tubular cells induced by NaF at different
