ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the influencing factors of cognitive impairment in patients with silicosis, and to analyze the effect of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) on cognitive function. Methods: In March 2021, 484 silicosis patients from April 2018 to April 2020 were included in the study. The Montreal Cognitive Assessment Scale of Chinese version was used to evaluate their cognitive function, and they were divided into the cognitive impairment group (n=282) and the non cognitive impairment group (n=202) , another 30 healthy persons from body check were served as control group. The concentrations of BDNF were compared between the three groups. And the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was drawed to analyze the value of BDNF in predicting cognitive impairment in silicosis patients. And the logistic regression analysis was used to explore the risk factors of cognitive impairment. Results: The incidence of cognitive impairment in silicosis patients was 58.26% (282/484) . The level of BDNF in the cognitive impairment group[ (10.32±2.11) mg/L] was significantly lower than that in the non cognitive impairment group[ (13.43±3.45) mg/L] (t=-12.27, P<0.001) . The results of ROC curve analysis showed that the area unde the curve of BDNF in predicting cognitive impairment of silicosis patients was 0.763 (95%CI: 0.613-0.874, P=0.024) , the cut off value was 10 mg/L, the sensitivity was 0.88, and the specificity was 0.84. Logistic regression analysis showed that the level of BDNF (≤10 mg/L) , age (≥65 years old) , course of disease (≥5 years) and diabetes mellitus were the risk factors of cognitive impairment in silicosis patients (OR=2.346, 95%CI: 1.654-3.103; OR=1.757, 95%CI: 1.214-1.998; OR=1.346, 95%CI: 1.112-1.564; OR=1.165, 95%CI: 1.102-1.542, P=0.001, 0.012, 0.027, 0.036) . Conclusion: BDNF may be one of the indicator to predict the risk of cognitive impairment in patients with silicosis.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of polarization program on the ability of macrophages to regulate iron metabolism. M1 and M2 macrophages were propagated in vitro from porcine alveolar macrophages 3D4/2 and polarized by cytokines. The 3D4/2 macrophages were treated with 20 ng/mL interferon gamma (IFN-γ) and 10 ng/mL interleukin-4 (IL-4) combined with 10 ng/mL macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) to induce polarization to M1 and M2, respectively. After incubation for 24 h, the expression levels of inflammatory factors and iron-metabolism genes were determined using real-time qPCR, Western bot and immunofluorescence. The M1/M2 macrophages culture media supernatant was collected and used to treat porcine intestinal epithelial cells IPEC-J2. The proliferation ability of IPEC-J2 was detected using CCK-8 assay kit. Following exogenous addition of ammonium ferric citrate (FAC) to M1/M2 macrophages, the phagocytic function of macrophages was detected using fluorescein isothiocyanate-dextran (FITC-dextran) and flow cytometry. The results showed that, compared with control, M1 macrophages had higher mRNA levels of iron storage proteins (ferritin heavy and light polypeptide, i.e. FtH and FtL), hepcidin and lipocalin-2, as well as iron content. Moreover, iron enhanced the ability of M1 macrophages to phagocytize FITC-dextran. There was no significant change in these mRNA expression levels in M2 macrophages, but the mRNA expression levels of ferroportin and transferrin receptor were up-regulated. In addition, the conditioned media supernatant from M2 macrophages promoted cell proliferation of IPEC-J2. These findings indicate that M1 macrophages tend to lock iron in the cell and reduce extracellular iron content, thereby inhibiting the proliferation of extracellular bacteria. While M2 macrophages tend to excrete iron, which contributes to the proliferation of surrounding cells and thus promotes tissue repair.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To screen the differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) in human bronchial epithelial cells (HBE) treated with atmospheric fine particulate matter (PM ).@*Methods@#HBE cells were treated with PM samples from Shenzhen and Taiyuan for 24 h. To detect overall protein expression, the Q Exactive mass spectrometer was used. Gene ontology (GO), Kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes (KEGG), and Perseus software were used to screen DEPs.@*Results@#Overall, 67 DEPs were screened in the Shenzhen sample-treated group, of which 46 were upregulated and 21 were downregulated. In total, 252 DEPs were screened in the Taiyuan sample-treated group, of which 134 were upregulated and 118 were downregulated. KEGG analysis demonstrated that DEPs were mainly enriched in ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis and HIF-1 signal pathways in Shenzhen PM samples-treated group. The GO analysis demonstrated that Shenzhen sample-induced DEPs were mainly involved in the biological process for absorption of various metal ions and cell components. The Taiyuan PM -induced DEPs were mainly involved in biological processes of protein aggregation regulation and molecular function of oxidase activity. Additionally, three important DEPs, including ANXA2, DIABLO, and AIMP1, were screened.@*Conclusion@#Our findings provide a valuable basis for further evaluation of PM -associated carcinogenesis.

ABSTRACT

N-methyladenosine (mA), a ubiquitous RNA modification, is installed by METTL3-METTL14 complex. The structure of the heterodimeric complex between the methyltransferase domains (MTDs) of METTL3 and METTL14 has been previously determined. However, the MTDs alone possess no enzymatic activity. Here we present the solution structure for the zinc finger domain (ZFD) of METTL3, the inclusion of which fulfills the methyltransferase activity of METTL3-METTL14. We show that the ZFD specifically binds to an RNA containing 5'-GGACU-3' consensus sequence, but does not to one without. The ZFD thus serves as the target recognition domain, a structural feature previously shown for DNA methyltransferases, and cooperates with the MTDs of METTL3-METTL14 for catalysis. However, the interaction between the ZFD and the specific RNA is extremely weak, with the binding affinity at several hundred micromolar under physiological conditions. The ZFD contains two CCCH-type zinc fingers connected by an anti-parallel β-sheet. Mutational analysis and NMR titrations have mapped the functional interface to a contiguous surface. As a division of labor, the RNA-binding interface comprises basic residues from zinc finger 1 and hydrophobic residues from β-sheet and zinc finger 2. Further we show that the linker between the ZFD and MTD of METTL3 is flexible but partially folded, which may permit the cooperation between the two domains during catalysis. Together, the structural characterization of METTL3 ZFD paves the way to elucidate the atomic details of the entire process of RNA mA modification.

ABSTRACT

Next-generation sequencing has allowed identification of millions of somatic mutations in human cancer cells. A key challenge in interpreting cancer genomes is to distinguish drivers of cancer development among available genetic mutations. To address this issue, we present the first web-based application, consensus cancer driver gene caller (C), to identify the consensus driver genes using six different complementary strategies, i.e., frequency-based, machine learning-based, functional bias-based, clustering-based, statistics model-based, and network-based strategies. This application allows users to specify customized operations when calling driver genes, and provides solid statistical evaluations and interpretable visualizations on the integration results. C is implemented in Python and is freely available for public use at http://drivergene.rwebox.com/c3.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE@#To investigate whether dexmedetomidine (Dex) can reduce the production of inflammatory factor IL-1β by inhibiting the activation of NLRP3 inflammasome in hippocampal microglia, thereby alleviating the inflammatory response of the central nervous system induced by surgical injury.@*METHODS@#Exploratory laparotomy was used in experimental models in this study. Totally 48 Sprague Dawley male rats were randomly divided into 4 groups (n = 12 for each), respectively sham control (group A), laparotomy only (group B); and Dex treatment with different doses of 5 μg/kg (group D1) or 10 μg/kg (group D2). Rats in groups D1 and D2 were intraperitoneally injected with corresponding doses of Dex every 6 h. The rats were sacrificed 12 h after operation; the hippocampus tissues were isolated, and frozen sections were made. The microglia activation was estimated by immunohistochemistry. The protein expression of NLRP3, caspase-1, ASC and IL-1β were detected by immunoblotting. All data were presented as mean ± standard deviation, and independent sample t test was used to analyze the statistical difference between groups.@*RESULTS@#The activated microglia in the hippocampus of the rats significantly increased after laparotomy (group B vs. sham control, p < 0.01). After Dex treatment, the number was decreased in a dose-dependent way (group D1 vs. D2, p < 0.05), however the activated microglia in both groups were still higher than that of sham controls (both p < 0.05). Further Western blot analysis showed that the protein expression levels of NLRP3, caspase-1, ASC and downstream cytokine IL-1β in the hippocampus from the laparotomy group were significantly higher than those of the sham control group (all p < 0.01). The elevated expression of these proteins was relieved after Dex treatment, also in a dose-dependent way (D2 vs. D1 group, p < 0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#Dex can inhibit the activation of microglia and NLRP3 inflammasome in the hippocampus of rats after operation, and the synthesis and secretion of IL-1β are also reduced in a dose-dependent manner by using Dex. Hence, Dex can alleviate inflammation activation on the central nervous system induced by surgical injury.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: At present, the transplantation of bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (BM-EPCs) or bone marrow-derived hepatocyte stem cells (BDHSCs) is common in the treatment of liver fibrosis, but the combined treatment for liver fibrosis is rarely reported. Combined transplantation of BM-EPCs possessing the function of angiogenesis and BDHSCs possessing the function of hepatocyte regeneration might play a dual anti-fibrosis role. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reversal effect on liver fibrosis by the combined transplantation of BM-EPCs and BDHSCs in rats. METHODS: The liver fibrosis rat models were induced with CCl4 subcutaneous injections for 6 weeks. BM-EPCs of rats with liver fibrosis were obtained by culture induction in vitro.BDHSCs of rats with liver fibrosis were obtained by magnetic bead cell sorting.BM-EPCs and/or BDHSCs were transplanted into liver fibrosis rats via the tail vein and branch of the portal vein,and then the effects of BDHSCs transplantatiron on liver fibrosis and liver function were observed. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: (1) Masson staining results showed transplantations of BDHSCs and BM-EPCs, alone or both, could suppress the formation of collagen fibers. However, the staging scores of liver fibrosis showed that only the combined transplantation of BM-EPCs and BDHSCs could significantly improve liver fibrosis,which was significantly different from the model group(1.75±0.25 vs. 3.00±0.19, P < 0.05). (2) The liver biochemical assay in the blood showed that the levels of all five parameters of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, total bilirubin, prothrombin time, and activated partial thromboplastin time in the BM-EPCs/BDHSCs group were significantly improved to be equivalent to normal levels, compared with those in the model group (P < 0.05). To conclude, it is an effective treatment for liver fibrosis by the co-transplantation of BM-EPCs and BDHSCs.

ABSTRACT

Objective To assess the clinical value for the clinicopathological features of microcystic elongated and fragmented(MELF)invasion in endometrial carcinoma(EEC). Methods The clinicopathological data of 108 cases of endometrial carcinoma with total hysterectomy, bilateral adnexectomy, and pelvic dissection were retrospectively analysis in Peking University People′s Hospital from April 2015 to October 2016. Twenty-five patients with endometrial carcinoma showing MELF invasion pattern were collected. We analyzed retrospectively the association of MELF pattern invasion with clinical pathology data and prognosis of the patients,partial immunohistochemical staining was implemented. MELF invasion was a special invasion pattern and characterized by microcystic, elongated, fragmented(composed of cluster cells)gland in muscular layer. Results The incidence rate was 23.1%(25/108). These patients mean age was (59.3 ± 10.9)years old. Four cases were premenopausal, and 21 were postmenopausal. Abnormal vaginal bleeding was the main clinical presentation. The lesions tend to appear adjacent to the tumor body. Sometimes, it may be appears away from the tumor body in the deep muscle layer. Lymph node metastasis were present in 5 cases(20%,5/25). Thirteen cases(52%,13/25)of them demonstrated lymph vascular space involvement(LVSI). The immunohischemical expression of ER,PR, Ki-67 and galectin-3 showing MELF invasion pattern were weaker than no showing MELF invasion pattern endometrial carcinoma, cktokeratin (CK) was showed diffuse strong positive expression, E-cadherin was moderately positive expression. All 25 cases were followed up for(23.2±5.9)months(14-33 months)after the therapy with no recurrence on metastasis. Conclusions MELF invasion pattern is a special invasion pattern in low-grade EEC. The incidence of LVSI and lymph node metastasis rate in endometrial carcinoma with MELF invasion are significantly increased. The prognosis of MELF invasion pattern may be poor.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND:Extracelular matrix degradation and remodeling is the common pathway of a variety of pathological and physiological processes, and is invovled in the pathogenesis of a variety of oral diseases. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the role of extracelular matrix remodeling folowing celular apoptosis in recurrent aphthous ulcer and the therapeutic effect of baicalin, so as to provide references for new drug development and clinical treatment. METHODS: Forty Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups: control, recurrent aphthous ulcer model, low-dose baicalin and high-dose baicalin groups. Rat models were established using oral mucosal homogenate plus Freund’s immunoadjuvants in the recurrent aphthous ulcer model, low-dose baicalin, and high-dose baicalin groups. Rats in low-dose baicalin and high-dose baicalin groups were intragastricaly administered 10 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg of baicalin respectively for 14 days, once per day. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:Compared with the control group, serum superoxide dismutase level was distinctly decreased, however, malondialdehyde level distinctly increased; the expression levels of Bax, Caspase3 and matrix metaloproteinase 2/9 were increased, but the expression of Bcl2 was decreased in the recurrent aphthous ulcer model group. The abovementioned indicators of rats returned greatly towards normal levels in the low dose baicalin and high dose baicalin groups, and there was significant difference in the effects of different doses of baicalin on these indicators. These results suggest that baicalin treats recurrent aphthous ulcer mainly through inhibiting extracelular matrix degradation and remodeling.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of immunohistochemical (IHC) staining of DNA mismatch repair (MMR) protein for the screening of microsatellite instability (MSI) colorectal cancer (CRC).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A total of 255 CRC cases were studied, including 140 cases of routine paraffin-embedded tissue samples and 115 cases constructed on tissue microarray. Expressions of 4 MMR proteins including MHL1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2 were investigated by IHC. Negative protein expression was defined as complete absence of nuclear staining within tumor cells in the presence of positively labeled internal non-neoplastic cells. Focal staining was defined as the presence of staining in < 5% of the tumor cells. CRCs showing negative staining for any MMR proteins were interpreted as MMR deficient tumors. PCR-genescan MSI analysis was performed in each case by a five marker panel including Bat26, Bat25, NR-21, NR-24 and MONO-27.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Among the 140 CRCs with routine formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections, concordance rate between IHC and PCR-genescan was 98.6% (138/140), the sensitivity and specificity of IHC in detecting MSI tumors were 94.9% (37/39) and 100.0% (101/101), respectively. The 2 disconcordant cases showed focal staining in at least one of the MMR proteins but were confirmed to be MSI-H CRCs by PCR-genescan assay. On tissue microarray, 91.3% (105/115) of the cases had informative results. The concordance rate between IHC and PCR-genescan was 100.0% (105/105). Both the specificity and sensitivity of IHC in detecting MSI tumors on available tissue microarray samples were 100.0%. Ten cases were inclusive due to the presence of negative stains of MMR proteins in both the tumor and internal control cells.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Detection of 4 MMR proteins expression by IHC is reliable for identifying MSI CRCs and is recommended for routine practice. Tumors with focal MMR protein staining are highly suspected for the presence of MSI-H and PCR-genescan based MSI analysis should be performed to confirm.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the early diagnosis and treatment for trauma around the knee with popliteal vascular injury.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A retrospective analysis was employed to analyze the clinical data from 15 patients (9 males and 6 females were with a mean age of 39.2 years old,ranging from 26 to 62 years old) with fracture or dislocation around the knee with popliteal vascular injury from January 2007 to January 2013. Combined with clinical symptoms and signs, oxygen saturation monitors, color ultrasound, DSA angiography and interventional surgery were used to determine the vascular injury. The knee fracture and dislocation were fixed with hybrid external fixation and plate-screw fixation, respectively. Then, the blood circulation was reconstructed by thrombectomy, repair and autologous vein graft for individual injured vascular. The average total operation time, average hospitalization days, predictive salvage index (PSI), average blood transfusion amount, average medical expenses and infection cases were recorded to determine the effect of early diagnosis and treatment.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>There was one patient with death, 8 patients with amputation, and 6 patients with successful repair surgery for popliteal artery, anterior tibial and posterior tibial arteries. These six patients with surviving limbs were followed up for an average of 28.3 months (ranged, 12 to 60 months). Among the 6 successful patients, the joint function of 4 patients was good and excellent.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The trauma around the knee with popliteal vascular injury is characterized by complex and serious injury, easy misdiagnosis and loss diagnosis, poor prognosis and high risk of amputation. The early diagnosis of trauma around the knee with popliteal vascular injury should depend on the mechanism of trauma, local anatomical characteristics of injury site, clinical presentations and appropriate auxiliary examinations. The appropriate indications for limb salvage and amputation should be used to achieve more effective clinical results.</p>

ABSTRACT

Objective To establish a reasonable and practical evaluation indicator system for health promoting hospital. Methods According to the importance recognized by the experts,two round Delphi consultation was conducted to set up the indicator system of health promoting.Results A total of 20 experts participated in this study,with the average age of 42.75 ±5.20 years.The average years of work was 15.15 ±6.85 years.All of experts had bachelor degree and above,and 80.00% had senior technical titles.Questionnaire response rates of two round Delphi consultation were both 100.00%. The average coefficients of experts'authorities (Cr)was 0.93 ±0.10.There was statistically difference between the Kendall coefficients of two round consultations (P <0.05).The evaluation indicator system was finally established including 5 first-class indexes (organization construction, environment construction, patient health education, employee health promotion,and out -hospital health education),14 second -class indexes and 25 third -class indexes.The average scores of important degree among each index involved was 4.30 -5.00,with standard deviation 0.00 -0.83,and the coefficient of variation was 0.000 - 0.182,which met the design requirements.Conclusion The Delphi expert consultation method in this study have good representative,authoritative and coordination.
