RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical effect of acupoint injection of houttuynia cordata as the accessory treatment on dry eyes of convalescent herpes simplex keratitis (HSK). METHODS: A total of 60 patients with dry eyes of convalescent HSK were randomized into an observation group and a control group, 30 cases in each one. In the control group, the artificial tears and anti-inflammatory drugs were combined in treatment. In the observation group, on the base of the treatment as the control group, the acupoint injection of houttuynia cordata at Neiqiuhou (Extra) was combined, 3 mL each time, once a day. After consecutive 3 injections, the injection was adjusted to be once every two days, consecutively for 3 times. The treatment for 6 times was as one course and one course of treatment was required. Separately, before treatment and in 7, 15 and 30 days after treatment, the changes of the scores of visual analogue scale (VAS), theresults of SchirmerⅠtest (SⅠT), the tear break-up time (BUT) and the score of corneal fluorescein staining (CFS) were observed and analyzed in the patients of the two groups. RESULTS: In 7, 15 and 30 days after treatment, VAS scores and CFS scores were all reduced as compared with those before treatment in the patients of the two groups (P<0.05), and the scores of VAS and CFS in the observation group were lower than those in the control group (P<0.05). In 7, 15 and 30 days after treatment, the values of SⅠT and BUT were all increased as compared with those before treatment in the patients of the two groups (P<0.05), and the values in the observation group were higher than the control group in 15 and 30 days after treatment (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Acupoint injection of houttuynia cordata promotes corneal epithelial recovery, reduces the discomfort symptoms as well as increases tear secretion and the stability of tear film in dry eyes of convalescent herpes simplex keratitis.

RESUMO

The local structure, d-d transition band as well as spin Hamiltonian parameters (SHPs) are theoretically studied for the V4+ probe in 10Na2 O-30PbO-10Bi2 O3 -(50-x)SiO2 (NPBS) glass ceramics containing V2 O5 dopant with various concentration x (0 ≤ x ≤ 5 mol %) by using the perturbation formulas of the SHPs for tetragonally compressed octahedral 3d1 clusters. The first decreasing (or increasing) and then increasing (or decreasing) d-d transition band (= 10 Dq ) and hyperfine structure constants A// and A⊥ (or g factors g// and g⊥ ) with x can be suitably simulated with the similarly varying Fourier type concentration functions of cubic field parameter Dq , covalence factor N, core polarization constant κ and reduction factor H (or relative tetragonal compression ratio ρ), with the minima (or maxima) at the middle concentration x = 3 mol %, respectively. The above concentration variations of SHPs and the related quantities may originate from the modifications of local crystal-field strength, tetragonal compression and electron cloud distribution near the impurity V4+ with x, corresponding to the highest [V4+ ]/[V5+ ] ratio at 3 mol %. Present studies would be helpful to explore novel sodium lead bismuth silicate glass ceramics by modifying the concentration of V2 O5 dopant.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits and safety of ultrasound guidance in comparison with conventional palpation for radial artery cannulation in adult patients. However, the current evidence for paediatric patients is not fully understood. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the efficiency and safety of ultrasound guidance with those of traditional palpation for radial artery cannulation in paediatric patients and provide convincing evidence for clinical practice. METHODS: PubMed, Cochrane Library, ClinicalTrials.gov (Min et al-2019, NCT02795468, Anantasit et al-2017, NCT02668471), China National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Wanfang Data were systematically searched from their inception until December 31, 2019, to identify relevant randomised controlled trials. Data were extracted from the included studies independently by two investigators. The primary outcome of interest was the first-attempt success rate. Review Manager Version 5.3 and trial sequential analysis (beta = 0.9) were applied to analyse the collected data. RESULTS: A total of eight randomised controlled trials involving 680 paediatric patients were included in this study. The pooled findings showed that ultrasound-guided radial artery cannulation, in comparison with traditional palpation, can significantly improve the first-attempt success rate (relative risk [RR] = 1.65, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.36-2.01, P < 0.00001). Trial sequential analysis indicated that this available evidence was conclusive. Moreover, ultrasound guidance was associated with an increased total success rate (RR = 1.38, 95% CI = 1.15-1.66, P = 0.0004), a decreased mean procedural time (standardised mean difference = -0.89, 95% CI = -1.52 to -0.25, P = 0.006), and incidence of haematoma (RR = 0.19, 95% CI = 0.10-0.35, P < 0.00001). CONCLUSION: Ultrasound-guided radial arterial cannulation in paediatric patients is associated with improved first-attempt success rates, total success rates, and mean procedural time and decreased incidence of haematoma. The current evidence suggests that ultrasound guidance should be the standard of care for radial artery cannulation in clinical practice.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Bone turnover markers (BTMs) can be used to monitor bone metabolism, while the actual clinical changing in hip fracture had not been certified to evaluate the changes of BTMs during the healing process after surgery of elderly hip fractures; and to get the effects of operation type, gender, serum 25(OH)D level, and age on bone turnover markers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 100 elderly cases with hip fracture were selected, including 74 females and 26 males, and the patients were followed to 180-230 days after surgery. Serum levels of N-propeptide of type 1 collagen (P1NP), C-terminal crosslinking telopeptides of type 1 collagen (CTX), Osteocalcin (OC), and 25 hydroxy vitamin D (25OHD) were investigated. Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). RESULTS: (1) P1NP and CTX showed peak time at 30-60 days after operation, while OC keep going even at 180-230 days; P1NP showed less than 4 times elevation during healing, CTX and OC only had less than 2 times rise. (2) Female had higher serum CTX and OC than male, intramedullary nailing for intertrochanteric fracture patients had higher P1NP than hip replacement for femoral neck fracture patients, and both the degrees of increase were less than 50%. (3) Serum average 25(OH)D level had no effect on BTMs during the fracture healing; different from the young old (65-84 years), serum OC level of eldest older patients(≥ 85 years) decreased early in the process of fracture healing. CONCLUSIONS: BTMs reached the peak level in 30-60 days after surgery, P1NP showed less than 4 times elevation, and CTX and OC had less than 2 times rise. It was not necessary to take gender into account when observing P1NP, and it was not necessary to take fracture and operation type into account when observing CTX and OC.

RESUMO

Understanding the structure and properties of lignin has important practical significance for its further applications. In this case, eucalyptus was fractionated with 88% formic acid at 101 °C for different durations, and the removal efficiency as well as the chemical structure of lignin at various stages were comparatively analyzed. The obtained data indicated that with increasing reaction time, lignin was continuously removed and the process could be divided into three stages. The lignin dissolution rate was fast first and then slow, and the molecular weight of the dissolved lignin increased with time. The lignin structure was condensed and the molecular weight increased with prolonged of reaction time. Structural analysis indicated that the ß-O-4' structure was largely destroyed, the G-type lignin dissolved early, and the degradation of the S-type lignin became more intensive with increasing reaction time. This is of great help for reaction control as well as the further processing of lignin byproducts.

RESUMO

Long interspersed nuclear element-1 (LINE-1) is the only active autonomous transposon in the human genome. Its transposition frequently induces host genome instability, leading to a variety of genetic diseases, including cancers. The host factors play important roles in inhibiting LINE-1 retrotransposition. As an important component of the immune system, the host factor SLFN14 has antiviral activity. Our laboratory shows that SLFN14 possesses potent inhibitory activity against LINE-1 retrotransposition. To explore the potential mechanism of SLFN14 inhibition, we analyzed its effects on transcription, translation, reverse transcription and insertion in the LINE-1 replication cycle. We confirmed that SLFN14 could suppress the LINE-1 mRNA level by affecting its transcription and degradation, thereby diminishing the protein and cDNA levels of LINE-1, which eventually block the LINE-1 retrotransposition. Further, by mapping the active domains of SLFN14, we found its inhibitory activity on LINE-1 being closely related to its endoribonuclease and ribosome binding domains. These results demonstrate the mechanism of SLFN14 in regulating LINE-1 replication, which further provide new insights for improving the regulation network of host factors for controlling genomic instability caused by LINE-1 replication.

RESUMO

The specific therapeutic regimen of Bell's palsy was proposed in association with the common refractory factors and the clinical experience of professor Fang Jian-qiao. It is viewed that aging, absent intervention standard treatment at early stage, no prodromal symptoms and progressive onset are the refractory factors. Acupuncture at the local area is predominated in treatment. The different acupoint prescription regimens of acupuncture therapy are selected depending on muscle relaxation, muscle stiffness and specific accompanying symptoms, associated with electric stimulation, moxibustion and the tapping technique with plum-blossom needle so as to ensure the improvement of clinical therapeutic effect.

RESUMO

A novel nucleic acid-based isothermal signal amplification strategy, named cross-boosting extension-nicking reaction (CBENR) is developed and successfully used for rapid and ultrasensitive detection of polynucleotide kinase (PNK) activity. Only two simple oligonucleotides (recognition substrate (RS) and TaqMan probe) are applied to construct the PNK-sensing platform. In the presence of PNK, the 3'-phosphate end of RS will be converted to the 3'-hydroxyl one, and then extended to a long poly-adenine (poly-A) sequence under the catalysis of terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT). The poly-A sequence provides multiple binding sites for the TaqMan probe to form multiple DNA duplexes. Subsequently, ribonuclease HII (RNase HII) cuts the TaqMan probe into two parts at the pre-set uracil site, generating a fluorescence signal and providing new substrates for TdT elongation. The TdT-catalyzed substrate extension and RNase HII-catalyzed probe nicking are boosted by each other, resulting in persistent enlargement of these two reactions and thus giving ultrahigh signal amplification efficiency. Utilizing the CBENR-based PNK sensor, ultrasensitive detection of PNK activity was achieved with a detection limit as low as 3.0 × 10-6 U mL-1. Quantification of endogenous PNK activity at the single-cell level and the screening/evaluation of PNK inhibitors were also achieved.

RESUMO

Hyperuricemia (HUA) is a metabolic disease characterized by elevated serum uric acid (SUA). Empagliflozin, a kind of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors, has recently emerged as a new antidiabetic agent by facilitating glucose excretion in urine. Moreover, there was evidence of SUA reduction following treatment with empagliflozin in addition to glycaemic control, while the molecular mechanisms remain unknown. To investigate the potential mechanisms, the model of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with HUA was established by combination of peritoneal injection of potassium oxonate and intragastric administration of hypoxanthine in KK-Ay mice. A series of method such as RT-PCR, western blot, immunochemistry, immunofluorescence were conducted to explore the mechanism. Our results showed that empagliflozin significantly ameliorated the levels of SUA and blood glucose in T2DM mice with HUA. Furthermore, in both kidney and ileum, empagliflozin obviously promoted protein expression of uric acid (UA) transporter ABCG2, p-AMPK, p-AKT and p-CREB. The same trend was observed in human tubular epithelial (HK-2) cells. Additionally, through application of an AMPK inhibitor (Compound C), it was further confirmed empagliflozin exerted its anti-hyperuricemic effects in an AMPK dependent manner. Meanwhile, with the help of ChIP assay and luciferase reporter gene assay, we found that CREB further activated ABCG2 via binding to the promoter of ABCG2 to induce transcription. Taken together, our study demonstrated that empagliflozin treatment played an essential role in attenuating HUA by upregulation of ABCG2 via AMPK/AKT/CREB signaling pathway.

RESUMO

Melatonin is a ubiquitous indoleamine hormone synthesized primarily by the pineal gland. Diverse biological actions of melatonin involve quite complex mechanisms via its membrane receptors. More recently, studies have focused on the role of melatonin in male fertility preservation and male reproductive system. The protective effects of melatonin on immature testicular tissue freshness and activity maintenance and the preservation of sperm and spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) have attracted considerable attention in recent years. Furthermore, since melatonin has strong antioxidant and anti-apoptotic properties, researchers have examined its potential role in male reproductive system. In this article, recent progress regarding melatonin's effects on male fertility preservation and its potential role is reviewed.

RESUMO

Ellipticine, a natural product from Ochrosia elliptica, has been broadly investigated for its anticancer effects. Although inflammation has been clearly identified as a key factor in the onset and progression of cancer, the relationship between ellipticine and inflammation remains unknown. Hence, the aims of the present study were to assess the effects of ellipticine on the inflammatory responses to lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced macrophages and to potentially identify the underlying mechanisms involved. Viability testing showed that ellipticine was not significantly toxic to Raw264.7 cells and actually conveyed protective effects to LPS-stimulated Raw264.7 cells and human peripheral blood monocytes by decreasing the secretion of inflammatory factors (TNF-α and IL-6). The results of western blot analysis and electrophoretic mobility shift assays showed that ellipticine markedly suppressed LPS-induced activation of the JNK/AP-1 (c-Fos and c-Jun) signaling pathway, but not ERK/p38/NF-κB pathway (p65 and p50) activation. Furthermore, ellipticine reduced the inflammatory response and mortality in a mouse model of LPS-induced endotoxic shock. Collectively, these data indicate that ellipticine may be a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of inflammation-associated diseases.

RESUMO

As a universal quantum character of quantum correlation, the freezing phenomenon is researched by geometry and quantum discord methods, respectively. In this paper, the properties of Rènyi discord is studied for two independent Dimer System coupled to two correlated Fermi-spin environments under the non-Markovian condition. We further demonstrate that the freezing behaviors still exist for Rènyi discord and study the effects of different parameters on this behaviors.

RESUMO

DNA methyltransferase (MTase) and polynucleotide kinase (PNK) are both DNA-dependent enzymes that play important roles in DNA methylation and DNA repair processes, respectively. Dysregulation of their activities is associated with various human diseases. Herein, we present a specific and sensitive biosensing strategy, named terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-activated nicking enzyme amplification reaction (TdT-NEAR), for their activity detection. As for MTase detection, an enclosed dumbbell-shaped oligonucleotide substrate, whose symmetric stem containing a recognition site of Dam MTase and an incomplete recognition sequence of nicking endonuclease Nt.BbvCI, was used. Typically, the substrate is methylated by Dam MTase and subsequently cleaved by Dpn I. In the presence of TdT and dGTP, poly(guanine, G) sequences are extended from the released 3'-OH ends, achieving the conversion of the incomplete Nt.BbvCI recognition sequence to an intact one. The extension products can then be used to trigger Nt.BbvCI-catalyzed cyclic cleavage of fluorophore/quencher-labelled oligonucleotide probe, giving a significantly enhanced fluorescence output. Such a sensing system can achieve sensitive and specific detection of Dam MTase with a detection limit of 0.002 U/mL. The unique working mechanism endows the sensing system with improved anti-interference capability and thus increased application potential in complex biological samples. Moreover, it was also demonstrated to work well for Dam MTase inhibitor screening and inhibitory activity evaluation, thus holding great potential in disease diagnosis and drug discovery. Using a simpler 3'-phosphorylated linear substrate and the same fluorescent probe, the TdT-NEAR strategy can be easily extended to the activity analysis of PNK, thus revealing wide application potential in bioanalysis.

RESUMO

Effective photosensitizers (PSs) are highly desirable in many applications, such as photodynamic therapy and catalytic chemistry. Here, we demonstrated that vesicles of cucurbit[7]uril (Q[7] or CB[7])-anchored polymers enhanced photosensitization in the nucleus. The polyacrylic acid chain spacer triggered Q[7] polymers on the surfaces of the vesicles at a regular distance, thus not only leading to efficient inhibition of the aggregation induced self-quenching of the porphyrin based cationic PS in aqueous solution but also maintaining the PS at high concentration on the nanoscale via stable host-guest interactions. Further experiments indicated that Q[7] polymer based vesicles as a PS loading vehicle had a high penetration depth, entering the nuclei of cancer cells. Therefore, highly enhanced photosensitization and efficient anticancer effects were achieved.

RESUMO

Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the diagnostic discordance of osteoporosis by quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in Chinese elderly men. Methods: A total of 313 males older than 60 years, who underwent both spinal QCT and lumbar spine and hip DXA in our department, were included. The diagnostic criteria established by the World Health Organisation in 1994 were used for DXA to diagnose osteoporosis, and the criteria recommended by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry were used for QCT. The osteoporosis detection rate by the two techniques was calculated, and the difference was compared. The minor discordance was considered present when the different diagnostic classes between the two techniques were adjacent. Major discordance was present when the diagnosis by one technique was osteoporosis and the other was normal. The computed tomography images were reviewed by radiologists to assess whether vertebral fracture, aorta calcification or degeneration was present. Results: In the 313 participants (mean age, 79.6 ± 7.2 years), the osteoporosis detection rate was 10.9% for DXA (lumbar spine and hip) and 45.1% for QCT, a significant difference (p < 0.001). The major discordance, minor discordance and concordance of diagnosis between the two techniques were seen in 8.3%, 50.8% and 40.9%, respectively. QCT detected osteoporosis better than DXA. The causes of this discordance were degeneration of spine, abdominal aorta calcification and vertebral fractures. Conclusion: Our study demonstrated that discordance was common when using QCT and DXA to diagnose osteoporosis and that spinal degeneration, aorta calcification and fracture obscure the bone mineral density measurement of spine by DXA. QCT is a more sensitive method of choice to identify osteoporosis in elderly Chinese men. The translational potential of this article: This study investigated the diagnostic discordance of osteoporosis by quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in Chinese elderly men. The results demonstrated that QCT is a more sensitive method of choice to identify osteoporosis in elderly Chinese men. This work may help clinicians make an appropriate choice of technique for the accurate diagnosis of osteoporosis and identify the patients at high risk of osteoporosis who should be treated early to prevent fractures. This may influence the therapeutic plan and the overall prognosis of patients.

RESUMO

Objective: Calcium dobesilate (CaD), an effective drug for the treatment of diabetic microvascular complications, especially diabetic retinopathy, is widely used in the clinic. Interestingly, several studies have indicated that CaD is therapeutic for diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Recently, evidence has indicated that altered vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and decreased autophagy are the main pathological mechanisms of proteinuria. Thus, this study was conducted to explore the effect of CaD on restoring autophagy in DKD and the possible signaling pathway between VEGF and autophagy. Methods: Obese mice with spontaneous diabetes (KK-Ay) and high-fat diet- and streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice (HFD/STZ) were used in this study. Biochemical staining, western blotting, and immunohistochemistry were conducted to determine the angioprotective effect of CaD and the underlying mechanism between autophagy and VEGF/VEGFR. Results: Our results showed that CaD was capable of reducing albuminuria and restoring renal histological changes in KK-Ay and HFD/STZ-induced diabetic mice. CaD restored autophagy by decreasing the protein expression of LC3 II, Atg5, and beclin 1 and increasing the expression of P62. Moreover, CaD reduced the activation of the autophagy-related PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway possibly via decreasing VEGF and downregulating VEGF receptor 2. Conclusion: Overall, CaD, as a novel potential therapeutic drug for DKD, plays a key role in protecting renal function and restoring autophagy by blocking VEGF/VEGFR2 and inhibiting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway.

RESUMO

Protein kinase Cε (PKCε) is a transforming oncogene and plays an important role in many cellular processing. In the present paper, we review the development of experimental researches on the acute-chronic pain transformation. Results indicated that prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) / EP1 receptor-Gq-PKCε is an important signaling pathway to modulate chronic pain in peripheral dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, and also plays a role in the later stage of hyperalgesia during transformation from acute to chronic pain. PKCε in DRG neurons induces mechanical and thermal hypersensitivity respectively by over expression of transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) and TRP ankyrin-1 (TRPA1), further mediating the transformation from acute to chronic pain. Whereas, PGE2-evoked activation of EP1-Gq-PKCε signaling may be the key link in initiating the pain translation process through regulating downstream TRPA1 and TRPV1. Electroacupuncture (EA) has been used to effectively relieving various types of acute and chronic pain for decades, and can significantly inhibit the expression of PKCε and its upstream and downstream molecules. Therefore, it can be inferred that there exists a possibility of EA interventions in interfering the transformation from acute to chronic pain by regulating peripheral PKCε signaling pathway.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Long noncoding RNAs have been known to be involved in multiple types of malignancies, including invasive breast cancer (IBC). This study aimed to explore the role of long noncoding RNAs in IBC and elucidate the potential molecular mechanisms. METHODS: Using TCGA microarray data analysis, we identified a long noncoding RNA, MIR210HG, highly expressed in IBC. Kaplan-Meier method and the log-rank test were used for survival analysis. The gain-of-function experiments were performed to assess the function of MIR210HG in IBC invasion and migration in both in vitro and in vivo settings. Bioinformatic analysis as well as luciferase reporter assay, rescue experiments and western blot assay revealed the mode of action of MIR210HG. RESULTS: The aberrantly enhanced MiR210HG expression predicted poor prognosis and lower survival rate. Knockdown of MiR210HG suppressed IBC cell invasion and metastasis both in vitro and in vivo. MiR-1226-3p was identified and validated to be the target miRNA of MiR210HG. Furthermore, MiR210HG functions as a competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNA) which sponges miR-1226-3p, therefore upregulates the expression of mucin1 (MUC1-C). CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that MiR210HG sponges miR-1226-3p to facilitate invasive breast cancer cell invasion and metastasis by regulating mucin-1c and EMT pathway, revealing the oncogenic role of MiR210HG in IBC cells.
