Alcohol suppresses cardiovascular diurnal variations in male normotensive rats: Role of reduced PER2 expression and CYP2E1 hyperactivity in the heart.

Mohamed Katary, Abdel A Abdel-Rahman,

<h4>Background and aims</h4>The molecular mechanism of the adverse effects of ethanol on diurnal cardiovascular regulation remains unknown. In separate studies, the cardiac circadian rhythm protein period-2 (PER2) confers cardioprotection and, in other organs, PER2 interaction with the ethanol-metabolizing enzyme CYP2E1 underlies, via heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) upregulation, tissue injury/dysfunction. Here, we ... Read more >>

The synergistic anti-proliferative effect of the combination of diosmin and BEZ-235 (dactolisib) on the HCT-116 colorectal cancer cell line occurs through inhibition of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR/NF-κB axis.

Maged W Helmy, Asser I Ghoneim, Mohamed A Katary, Rana K Elmahdy,

One of the most lethal malignancies worldwide is colorectal cancer (CRC). Alterations in various signalling pathways, including PI3K-mTOR and NF-κB, have been reported in CRC with subsequent dysregulation of proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis and, questionably, autophagy processes. BEZ-235 (dactolisib) is a dual PI3K-mTOR inhibitor with potent anti-tumour activity. However, the observed ... Read more >>

Salvianolic Acid B Slows the Progression of Breast Cancer Cell Growth via Enhancement of Apoptosis and Reduction of Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, and Angiogenesis.

Mohamed A Katary, Rafik Abdelsayed, Abdulmohsin Alhashim, Mohamed Abdelhasib, Ahmed A Elmarakby,

Breast cancer is the current leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide. Although current chemotherapeutic drugs effectively reduce the progression of breast cancer, most of these drugs have many unwanted side effects. Salvianolic acid B (Sal-B) is a bioactive compound isolated from the root of Danshen Radix with potent ... Read more >>

Synergistic antiproliferative effects of curcumin and celecoxib in hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2 cells.

Fatma M Abdallah, Maged W Helmy, Mohamed A Katary, Asser I Ghoneim,

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is still a leading cancer killer in the community. Molecular targeted therapy with celecoxib (CXB) has shown promising antitumor effects; however, its use may be limited due to serious side effects. Curcumin (CUR) has also shown beneficial effects against HCC. Then, it was aimed to investigate the ... Read more >>

Influence of the selective COX-2 inhibitor celecoxib on sex differences in blood pressure and albuminuria in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Ahmed A Elmarakby, Mohamed Katary, Jennifer S Pollock, Jennifer C Sullivan,

We previously reported that female spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) have greater cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression in the renal medulla and enhanced urinary excretion of prostaglandin (PG) E2 (PGE2) metabolites compared to male SHR. Based on the role of COX-2-derived prostanoids in the regulation of cardiovascular health, the aim of the current ... Read more >>

Modulatory effect of silymarin on nuclear factor-erythroid-2-related factor 2 regulated redox status, nuclear factor-κB mediated inflammation and apoptosis in experimental gastric ulcer.

Walaa Arafa Keshk, Samer Mahmoud Zahran, Mohamed Alaa Katary, Darin Abd-Elaziz Ali,

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) consumption has been commonly associated with gastric mucosal lesions including gastric ulcer. Silymarin (SM) is a flavonoid mixture with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities which explain its protective role against hepatic and renal injuries. However, its impact on gastric ulcer has not yet been elucidated. Thus we ... Read more >>

Ameliorative effect of gossypin against gentamicin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats.

Mohamed Katary, Ahmad Salahuddin,

<h4>Aim</h4>Gentamicin (GEN) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic employed in treatment of life-threatening gram-negative infections, but one of its major side effects is the induction of nephrotoxicity. Therefore, the aim of this work was to scrutinize the possible protective effect of gossypin against GEN-induced nephrotoxicity.<h4>Method</h4>Rats were randomly divided into four groups. First ...

N-acetylcysteine a possible protector against indomethacin-induced peptic ulcer: crosstalk between antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic mechanisms.

Nema Ali Soliman, Doaa Hussein Zineldeen, Mohamed Alaa Katary, Darin Abd Ali,

This study investigated the gastroprotective effects of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) against indomethacin-induced gastric ulcer in rats. Ulceration was induced by a single oral administration of indomethacin (30 mg/kg). 50 male albino rats were allocated into 5 equal groups: control group received normal saline orally, indomethacin group rats received normal saline orally ...

Meloxicam fails to augment the reno-protective effects of soluble epoxide hydrolase inhibition in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats via increased 20-HETE levels.

Mohamed M Katary, Chelsey Pye, Ahmed A Elmarakby,

The pro-inflammatory cyclooxygenase (COX)-derived prostaglandins and the anti-inflammatory cytochrome P450 epoxygenase-derived epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) play an important role in the regulation of renal injury. The current study examined whether COX inhibition augments the reno-protective effects of increased EETs levels via inhibiting EETs degradation by soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) in diabetic ...

Novel molecular triggers underlie valproate-induced liver injury and its alleviation by the omega-3 fatty acid DHA: role of inflammation and apoptosis.

Abdalla M El-Mowafy, Mohamed M Katary, Chelsey Pye, Ahmed S Ibrahim, Ahmed A Elmarakby,

<h4>Background/aim</h4>Hepatic injury is a hallmark adverse reaction to Valproate (VPA), a common used drug in the management of numerous CNS disorders, including epilepsy. DHA has a myriad of health benefits, including renal- and hepato-protective effects. Unfortunately, however, the underpinnings of such liver-pertinent VPA- and DHA-actions remain largely undefined. Accordingly, this ... Read more >>

Irbesartan, an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, with selective PPAR-gamma-modulating activity improves function and structure of chemotherapy-damaged ovaries in rats.

Ihab T Abdel-Raheem, Gamal A Omran, Mohamed Alaa Katary,

Cyclophosphamide (CYP) is a chemotherapeutic agent with a potent ovarian toxic effect. CYP induces granulosa cell apoptosis and oxidative stress. Irbesartan (IRB) is a unique ARB with a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPAR-γ) agonistic activity. As PPAR-ɣ activation exerts anti-inflammatory effects and reduces ROS production, IRB may further reduce inflammatory chemokine ... Read more >>
