As a consequence, we finally analyzed the expression levels of MMP-2 and MMP-9 and found that both were remarkably down-regulated by single treatment of IL-27 or sorafenib, and the decreases were augmented by synergistic action. Therefore, we draw the conclusion that IL-27 might augment the inactivation of Akt/mTOR/MAPK pathway mediated by sorafenib through down-regulation of MMP-2 and MMP-9.
The possible reason behind the synergistic action of both chemicals can be related to their different mode and mechanism of target systems.
baumannii to the synergistic action of date palm / almond extract and amoxicillin showed that almond extract : amoxicillin combination exhibited stronger synergistic effect than the date palm extract and amoxicillin combination (Fig.
Synergistic Actions of Formamidine Insecticides on the Activity of Pyrethroids and Neonicotinoids against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).
The above XPS analysis displayed that the original N=P-N cycle structure in CPZ molecule was completely broken when heated, and moreover, no new (P-N).v form produced, which implied nonoccurrence of the intra- and intermolecular N-P synergistic action.
Although hypotension due to decrease in systemic vascular resistance resulting from the blockade of preganglionic sympathetic fibres remains a problem with all central neuraxial blocks; the synergistic action of local anaesthetics with opioid can be of great benefit in achieving adequate anaesthesia with lesser dose of local anaesthetics, thereby reducing chances and severity of hypotension.

It is thus reasonable to hypothesize that positive response in treated cows was due to synergistic action of Nisin, enrofloxacin, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
Future research work would aim at determining the exact molecular mechanism of such synergistic action.
