Aims: The pathogenic variant, p.GLY428Asp (c.1283G-A), in the epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR ) gene causes neonatal inflammatory skin and bowel disease 2, a disorder that is lethal during infancy due to skin infections and sepsis. This variant seems to be restricted to people of Roma origin with the majority of patients thus far reported being from Slovakia or the Czech Republic. The aim of this study was to establish the frequency of this variant in the Roma population in Slovakia. Methods: A population sample of 1321 unrelated healthy individuals of Roma origin from Slovakia was tested for the p...

Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a common malignancy of the digestive system, but its specific mechanisms of occurrence and development remain incompletely understood. F-Box and leucine-rich repeat protein 7 (FBXL7) is a subunit of the Skp-cullin-F-box ubiquitin ligase, involved in cell cycle regulation, endothelial cell damage, and inflammatory immunological responses. However, the role of FBXL7 in CRC remains unknown. In this study, we investigated the clinical significance and potential mechanism of FBXL7 expression in CRC progression...

Background: Recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA), defined as two or more succeeding abortions during 20 weeks of gestation, affects 3-5% of pregnancies. Several studies have found that most women with RSA had at least one (and sometimes two copies) of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase ( MTHFR ) C677T variant. Materials and Methods: The study involved 118 women who had two or more spontaneous abortions (SAs) as the case group and 118 women who had at least one live birth but no SA as the control group...

Background: The LIPA gene encodes for lysosomal acid lipase (LAL), which catalyzes the hydrolysis of cholesterol esters and triglycerides. Variations in the LIPA gene impair LAL activity, predisposing patients to a rare metabolic disorder called LAL deficiency (LAL-D). The lack of functioning LAL promotes lipid accumulation and subsequent dyslipidemia, which can increase the likelihood of complications in both infants and adults. Although the worldwide prevalence is 1:500,000 births, the frequency in Mizrahi Jewish populations is projected to be as high as 1 in every 4200 births (Valles-Ayoub et al...

Young Ho Lee, Gwan Gyu Song
Objective: Osteopontin (OPN) increases T cell proliferation, interferon production, and CD40 ligand expression, which leads to B cell proliferation and antibody production. This study aimed to determine whether OPN variants are associated with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE]. Methods: We searched the Medline, Embase, and KoreaMed databases for available articles. We performed a meta-analysis on the association of OPN 707 T/C (rs1126616) at exon 6, 1083 G/A (rs112772) at the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR), 1239 C/A (rs9138) at 3'-UTR, and 9250 T/C (rs11229919) variants in exon 7 with susceptibility to SLE...

Objective: Polydactyly is characterized by multiple distinct heterogeneous phenotypes, the etiologies of which involve several genes. This study aimed to explore the genetic defects and further clarify the molecular mechanism of polydactyly in several Chinese families. Methods: Three families with diverse phenotypes of non-syndromic polydactyly were analyzed: two were cases of familial disease, whereas one was sporadic. PCR and Sanger sequencing were used to screen for pathogenic mutations in two known disease-associated genes, GLI3 and HOXD13 , while bioinformatic analyses predicted the pathogenicity of the identified variants...

Background: Coronary artery ectasia (CAE), known for localized or diffuse excessive dilatation of the coronary artery, has an unknown etiology, but it has been reported that the underlying cause may be atherosclerosis and genetic changes that may affect the arterial lumen. MicroRNAs have been shown to have an effect in aneurysm diseases and are known to contribute to vascular development and atherosclerosis. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether they are also associated with CAE. Methods: This cross-sectional study consisted of 25 patients with CAE and 25 subjects with normal coronary arteries...

Introduction: Human adenovirus (HAdV) is a common pathogen that can cause acute respiratory infections (ARIs) in children. Adenovirus pneumonia is the most severe respiratory disease associated with HAdV. Objective: We aimed to investigate the clinical characteristics of children hospitalized with adenovirus pneumonia in Quanzhou, China, in 2019. We also sought to determine the viral genotype in these cases and explore cases associated with severe adenovirus pneumonia. Methods: We collected oropharyngeal swabs from 99 children who were hospitalized with pneumonia in Quanzhou Women and Children's Hospital, these samples were tested for the presence of HAdV...

Background: There is increasing evidence that allergic rhinitis (AR) is associated with cancer. However, these results are inconsistent. Because of common risk factors, there may be reverse causality and confounding factors that affect our understanding of the relationship between AR and cancer. We aimed to explore the role of AR in cancer development using Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis. Materials and Methods: We performed a two-sample MR analysis using summary data from genome-wide association studies (GWAS)...

Background: Apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) is involved in serum triglyceride (TG) regulation. Several studies have reported that the rs651821 locus in the APOA5 gene is associated with serum TG levels in the Chinese population. However, no research has been performed regarding the association between the variants of rs651821 and the risk of hyperlipidemic acute pancreatitis (HLAP). Methods: A case-control study was conducted and is reported following the STROBE guidelines. We enrolled a total of 88 participants in this study (60 HLAP patients and 28 controls)...

Objective: There is currently no adequate treatment for osteosarcoma, a bone malignancy that poses a serious threat to adolescents and children. The dysregulation of long noncoding RNAs is associated with many cancers, including osteosarcoma. LINC00891 expression is aberrant in endometrial cancer, lung cancer, and thyroid cancer, and likely regulate the malignant behavior of cancer. However, the potential function and mechanisms of LINC00891 in osteosarcoma progression remain unclear. Materials and Methods: LINC00891, miR-27a-3p, and TET1 mRNA expression in osteosarcoma cells were analyzed using quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction...

Background: The increasing prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has become a global health problem. NAFLD has few initial symptoms and may be difficult to detect early, so there is need for a minimally invasive early detection marker. We hypothesized that miR-122 and miR-20a levels combined, as the miR-122/miR-20a ratio might detect NAFLD more sensitively. Methods: This study involved 167 participants with low alcohol intake. Those who had an increase in echogenicity of the liver parenchyma and hepato-renal contrast on ultrasonography were classified as the NAFLD group ( n  = 44), which was further classified into mild ( n  = 26) and severe ( n  = 18) groups based on echogenic intensity and hepatic vessel and diaphragm visualization...

Background: MicroRNAs regulate many biological processes and are involved in the pathogenesis of many diseases including chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Moreover, besides investigation of their roles in hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, a noninvasive, sensitive, and specific biomarker is essential in the diagnosis of liver diseases. This study was designed to evaluate the role of miR-122, miR-583, and miR-24 in the pathogenesis of CHB both in active chronic hepatitis (ACH) patients and in inactive carriers (IC)...

Background: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a complex inherited and progressive degenerative retinal disease. The eyes shut homolog ( EYS ) is frequently associated with RP is surprisingly high. Exploring the function of EYS is quite difficult due to the unique gene size and species specificity. Gene therapy may provide a breakthrough to treat this disease. Therefore, exploring and clarifying pathogenic mutations of EYS -associated RP has important guiding significance for clinical treatment. Methods: Clinical and molecular genetic data for EYS -associated RP were retrospectively analyzed...
