Screening suitable reference genes is the premise of quantitative Real-time PCR(qRT-PCR)for gene expression analysis. To provide stable reference genes for expression analysis of genes in Aconitum vilmorinianum, this study selected 19 candidate re-ference genes(ACT1, ACT2, ACT3, aTUB1, aTUB2, bTUB, 18S rRNA, UBQ, eIF2, eIF3, eIF4, eIF5, CYP, GAPDH1, GAPDH2, PP2A1, PP2A2, ACP, and EF1α) based on the transcriptome data of A. vilmorinianum. qRT-PCR was conducted to profile the expression of these genes in the root, stem, leaf, and flower of A. vilmorinianum. The Ct values showed that 18S rRNA with high expression level and GAPDH2 with large expression difference among organs were not suitable as the reference genes. NormFinder and geNorm showed similar results of the expression stability of the other candidate reference genes and demonstrated PP2A1, EF1α, and CYP as the highly stable ones. However, BestKeeper suggested EF1α, ACT3, and PP2A1 as the top stable genes. In view of the different results from different softwares, the geometric mean method was employed to analyze the expression stability of the candidate re-ference genes, the results of which indicated that PP2A1, EF1α, and ACT3 were the most stable. Based on the comprehensive analysis results of geNorm, NormFinder, BestKeeper, and geometric mean method, PP2A1 and EF1α presented the most stable expression in different organs of A. vilmorinianum. PP2A1 and EF1α were the superior reference genes for gene expression profiling in different organs of A. vilmorinianum.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary liver cancer with a dismal prognosis, especially when diagnosed at advanced stages. Annexin A2 (ANXA2), is found to promote cancer progression and therapeutic resistance. However, the underlining mechanisms of ANXA2 in immune escape of HCC remain poorly understood up to now. Herein, we summarized the molecular function of ANXA2 in HCC and its relationship with prognosis. Furthermore, we tentatively elucidated the underlying mechanism of ANXA2 immune escape of HCC by upregulating the proportion of regulatory T cells and the expression of several inhibitory molecules, and by downregulating the proportion of natural killer cells and dendritic cells and the expression of several inhibitory molecules or effector molecules. We expect a lot of in-depth studies to further reveal the underlying mechanism of ANXA2 in immune escape of HCC in the future.

Doxorubicin (DOX) is one of the most effective chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of a number of malignancies. However, its use is limited by serious cardiotoxic effects, for which there are currently no reliable pharmacologic therapies. Estrogen has exhibited protective effects against cardiac stressors in male and female animal models; however, its effects on DOX­induced cardiotoxicity remain unknown. High mortality and morbidity rates have been observed in patients with cancer worldwide, and DOX is often administered to a greater number of men than women. Therefore, the present study employed male Sprague-Dawley rats to evaluate the protective effects of 17ß-estradiol (E2) against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity. A total of 4 mg/kg DOX was administered to 14­week­old male Sprague­Dawley rats by intraperitoneal injection twice a week for 2 weeks. At 3 weeks following the first injection of DOX, an echocardiographic study revealed that DOX administration significantly decreased cardiac ejection fraction and fractional shortening by 20 and 29%, respectively, when compared with the vehicle­treated control rats (P<0.05). This was associated with decreased heart weight, myofibrillar disorganization and myofiber loss. The serum biomarkers for heart injury, including alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase and creatine kinase, were increased in DOX vs. vehicle­treated rats (P<0.05). E2 treatment by a daily subcutaneous injection of 2 mg/kg body weight attenuated the cardiotoxic effects of DOX. In addition, E2 treatment inhibited the DOX­induced increase in the expression of cardiac genes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase (NOX) 2, NOX4, B­cell lymphoma 2­associated X protein and caspase 3. These results demonstrate that E2 treatment may protect the heart against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity in male rats potentially through the regulation of NOX2, NOX4 and apoptosis genes.

The rupture and erosion of atherosclerotic plaque can induce coronary thrombosis. Prolyl-4-hydroxylase (P4H) plays a central role in the synthesis of all known types of collagens, which are the most abundant constituent of the extracellular matrix in atherosclerotic plaque. The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is thought to be in part caused by shear stress. In this study, we aimed to investigate a relationship between P4Hα1 and shear stress-induced atherosclerotic plaque. Carotid arteries of ApoE-/- mice were exposed to low and oscillatory shear stress conditions by the placement of a shear stress cast for 2 weeks; we divided 60 male ApoE-/- mice into three groups for treatments with saline (mock) (n = 20), empty lentivirus (lenti-EGFP) (n = 20), and lentivirus-P4Hα1 (lenti-P4Hα1) (n = 20). Our results reveal that after 2 weeks of lenti-P4Hα1 treatment both low and oscillatory shear stress-induced plaques increased collagen and the thickness of fibrous cap and decreased macrophage accumulation but no change in lipid accumulation. We also observed that overexpression of P4Ha1 increased plaque size. Our study suggests that P4Hα1 overexpression might be a potential therapeutic target in stabilizing vulnerable plaques.

OBJECTIVE: There is a lack of data focusing on non-communicable disease (NCD) mortality in the Chinese elderly population over the past decade. METHODS: Using mortality data from the Chinese Health Statistics, we explored the crude and age-standardized mortality trend of three major NCDs in the Chinese population ≥65 years of age from 2002 to 2010, namely, malignant neoplasms, heart diseases, and cerebrovascular diseases. Subpopulations characterized as rural and urban residence, and by gender and age were examined separately. RESULTS: Mortality increased with age and was higher among males than among females across the three NCDs, with the gender difference being most remarkable for malignant neoplasms and least for heart diseases mortality. Condition-specific crude mortalities increased between 2002 and 2010, overall and in all the pre-specified subpopulations. After age-standardization, rising trends were observed for people ≥65 years old, and condition-specific mortalities generally increased in rural regions and decreased in urban regions, especially for cerebrovascular diseases. CONCLUSIONS: There were increasing trends for mortality due to malignant neoplasms, heart diseases, and cerebrovascular diseases in China between 2002 and 2010, which were largely driven by the population aging. Disparities existed by rural and urban residence, gender, and age.

OBJECTIVE: To study the CT axial manifestations of iliolumbar ligament(ILL) and discusses its clinical effects on locating lumbosacral vertebral segments. METHODS: From May 2008 to March 2010, 706 adult patients diagnosed lumbar disc disease were performed with axial scans by single slice helical CT. Among the patients, 436 patients were male and 270 patients were female, ranging in age from 25 to 82 years, the median age was 44 years, 78 cases with lumbosacral transitional vertebrae (LSTV) were verified by X-radiography or fluoroscopy. The morphology, origin and insertion, courses of ILL and the relationship of ligament and spinal segments on axial plane images were used to study. The location method of spinal segments by ILL was compared with the other four location methods on CT. RESULTS: Of the 628 cases with normal lumbosacral segmentations sides of ligament, the main part of ILL originated from L5 transverse processes and terminated at the iliac crest, the morphological characters were divided into two types: double band (71.8%, 451/628) and single band (28.2%, 177/628). The tiny branches from posterior and outside edge of L4, lumbar disc were seen simultaneity in 3 cases. The ILL of 78 cases with LSTV all also originated from L5 transverse processes. Using ILL as a marker of the L5 vertebral level, 78 cases with LSTV were correctly numbered, the accuracy rate was higher than the other location methods, there was statistical significance between the location method by ILL and the location method by iliac crest (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: The main part of ILL originates from L5 transverse processes, the anatomic location is relatively steady and can be clearly displayed on axial CT, which can be used as a measure in the idenlification of LSTV in clinical practice, it is worthy to be applied widely in basic-level hospitals.
