Urinary bladder cancer (UBC) is characterized by frequent recurrence and metastasis despite the standard chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin combination. Histone modifiers are often dysregulated in cancer development, thus they can serve as an excellent drug targets for cancer therapy. Here, we investigated whether G9a, one of the histone H3 methyltransferases, was associated with UBC development. We first analyzed clinical data from public databases and found that G9a was significantly overexpressed in UBC patients...

In this study, a Pt loaded active carbon fiber (Pt/ACF) catalyst was prepared by immobilizing Pt nanoparticles on ACF. The catalyst accelerated hydrogenation of p -chloronitrobenzene ( p -CNB) to p -chloroaniline ( p -CA) at lower temperature and atmospheric pressure, resulting in approximately 100% yield and selectivity. Several factors that affect p -CA yield were investigated. The nitro reduction rate reached 100% under the optimal reaction conditions, indicating excellent selectivity of the prepared catalyst...

Magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) is a quantitative imaging technique that can simultaneously measure multiple important tissue properties of human body. Although MRF has demonstrated improved scan efficiency as compared to conventional techniques, further acceleration is still desired for translation into routine clinical practice. The purpose of this work is to accelerate MRF acquisition by developing a new tissue quantification method for MRF that allows accurate quantification with fewer sampling data...

In this study, microarray data analysis, real-time quantitative PCR and immunohistochemistry were used to detect the expression levels of SSRP1 in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissue and in corresponding normal tissue. The association between structure-specific recognition protein 1 (SSRP1) expression and patient prognosis was examined by Kaplan-Meier analysis. SSRP1 was knocked down and overexpressed in CRC cell lines, and its effects on proliferation, cell cycling, migration, invasion, cellular energy metabolism, apoptosis, chemotherapeutic drug sensitivity and cell phenotype-related molecules were assessed...

Leaf senescence is a genetically regulated, highly complex and ordered process. Although it has been extensively studied, the mechanism of leaf senescence is not well understood. In this study, we isolated a rice mutant, designated as premature senescence leaf (psl), which exhibits early senescence and spontaneous lesion mimic phenotype after flowering. The psl mutant displays programmed cell death with elevated accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Molecular and genetic analyses revealed that the phenotypes were caused by a phenylalanine deletion in the OsPSL (LOC_Os12g42420) that encode a putative core 2/I branching beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyl transferase predicted to be involved in protein glycosylation modification...

Aniline, antimony (Sb) and chromium (Cr) are typical and regulated co-contaminants in textile wastewater, but their removal was often investigated individually. In this work, simultaneous removal of aniline, Sb and Cr by ZVI coupled with H2 O2 was studied. With the dosage of 0.5 g L-1 ZVI and 2 mM H2 O2 , aniline, Sb and Cr can be removed completely at pH 3. Experiment with iso-propanol as the radical scavenger confirmed that OH derived from Fenton reaction accounts for aniline degradation, but not for Sb and Cr removal...

Cigarette smoking is an important cardiovascular risk factor, causing morbidity and mortality. There are many original studies on the impact of smoking, but its influence on platelet ADP-P2Y12 receptor inhibitors lack consistency. Thus, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of already existing data/studies to further explore this issue. PubMed, Web of science, EMBASE, Clinical Trials, and the Cochrane Library were searched from inception to March 2018. Studies investigating the residual platelet reactivity categorized by smoking status and patients treated with platelet ADP-P2Y12 receptor inhibitors qualified the inclusion criteria...

Background: Porcine respiratory disease is one of the most important health problems which causes significant economic losses. Objective: To understand the genetic basis for susceptibility to swine enzootic pneumonia (EP) in pigs, we detected 102,809 SNPs in a total of 249 individuals based on genome-wide sequencing data. Methods: Genome comparison of three susceptibility to swine EP pig breeds (Jinhua, Erhualian and Meishan) with two western lines that are considered more resistant (Duroc and Landrace) using XP-EHH and FST statistical approaches identified 691 positively selected genes...

The chloroplast chaperonin system is indispensable for the biogenesis of Rubisco, the key enzyme in photosynthesis. Using Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a model system, we found that in vivo the chloroplast chaperonin consists of CPN60α, CPN60β1, and CPN60β2, and the co-chaperonin of the three subunits CPN20, CPN11 and CPN23. In E. coli, CPN20 homo-oligomers and all possible other chloroplast co-chaperonin hetero-oligomers are functional, but only that consisting of CPN11/20/23-CPN60αβ1β2 can fully replace GroES/GroEL under stringent stress conditions...

In this study, a rapid and highly sensitive ultra performance liquid chromatography-triple quadrupole mass spectrometer method with the mobile phases of acetonitrile and 0.1% aqueous formic acid was established and successfully applied to comparatively analyze main active components after their compatibility. Besides, the effects of Scutellariae Radix, Coptidis Rhizoma and combined extracts on type 2 diabetic rats induced by high-fat diet along with low dose of streptozocin were investigated. Under the optimized chromatographic conditions, good separation of seven target components was achieved within 12 min...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic and autoimmune inflammatory disease ending with the destruction of joints. Current therapies can relieve RA symptoms, but some also bring severe adverse events. Therefore, an effective and safe therapeutic strategy remains to be created to benefit patients with RA by large. Jia Wei Niu Bang Zi granule (NBZG) consisting of RA-fighting Chinese herbals has been used in Longhua Hospital in the last several decades. NBZG has potential therapeutic effect on RA, which should be evaluated by larger sample clinical trial...

Increasing evidence has demonstrated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) contribute to tumorigenesis, progression and recurrence of various malignancies including Gallbladder carcinoma (GBC). Lnc-DILC is reported to be the tumor suppressor gene to play an important role in liver cancer stem cells (CSCs). However, the role of lnc-DILC in GBC remains to be elucidated. Herein, we show that lnc-DILC is upregulated in gallbladder CSCs and GBC patients' tissues. Knockdown of lnc-DILC attenuates the self-renewal, tumorigenicity, proliferation and metastasis of gallbladder CSCs...

Understanding the dynamic status of intracellular cysteine that responds to the stimulation of external oxidative stress is of great importance to mechanistic studies of cysteine related biology and medicine. However, due to the interference of structural similarity and comparable reactivity of other bio-thiols under physiological conditions, it is exceedingly challenging to develop fluorescent probes with excellent selectivity and sensitivity for the visualization of cysteine activities in an intricate biological context...

Accumulating evidence has indicated that intestinal microbiota is involved in the development of various human diseases, including cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). In the recent years, both human and animal experiments have revealed that alterations in the composition and function of intestinal flora, recognized as gut microflora dysbiosis, can accelerate the progression of CVDs. Moreover, intestinal flora metabolizes the diet ingested by the host into a series of metabolites, including trimethylamine N-oxide, short chain fatty acids, secondary bile acid and indoxyl sulfate, which affects the host physiological processes by activation of numerous signalling pathways...

In order to obtain the N-containing organics from cellulose under mild conditions, hydrothermal liquefaction of cellulose in the presence of ammonia was conducted in this study. The results showed that the increasing reaction temperature and prolonging time facilitated the conversion of cellulose in hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) with NH3 ·H2 O and decreased the amount of solid residue. Reaction temperature showed more influence than reaction time on solid residue formation. The components of bio-oil were significantly affected by reaction temperature and reaction time...
