RESUMO

Structural defects in crystals are generally believed to disrupt the symmetry of the pristine lattice, but sometimes, they can also serve as the constituent elements of new structures if they are arranged in a well-ordered pattern. Herein, choosing 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) as a model system, we successfully fabricated a novel group of 2D materials-M2X3 (M = Mo, W, X = S, Se) via the periodic assembly of chalcogen vacancy lines in their corresponding MX2 monolayers (such as MoS2). Our ab initio calculations further revealed that these monolayer M2X3 materials electronically exhibit quasi-direct narrow band-gap semiconducting characteristics, e.g., Eg = 0.89 eV for Mo2S3, and show ultra-high phonon-limited room-temperature carrier mobility up to ∼27 000 cm2 V-1 s-1 for electrons in Mo2S3. The emergence of these novel M2X3 materials expands the existing 2D family and provides new platforms for both fundamental research and practical applications, and the approach via the periodic assembly of ordered defects should also be applicable to other 2D materials.

RESUMO

We conducted this updated meta-analysis to evaluate the effects of relaxation therapy for depression. We searched PubMed, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, the Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and CINAHL for randomized controlled trials evaluating the effects of relaxation therapy in patients with depression. Finally, 14 studies were included in this meta-analysis. The efficacy of the intervention was evaluated using depression scale scores. We found that there was no significant difference between the effects of relaxation therapy and psychotherapy on decreasing self-rated depressive symptoms (standardized mean difference [SMD] = 0.19; 95% confidence interval [CI], -0.11 to 0.48). In addition, eight trials compared relaxation therapy with no treatment, waiting list, or minimal treatment and showed that the relaxation group reported lower levels of self-reported depression scores postintervention (SMD = -0.57; 95% CI, -0.98 to -0.15). Therefore, this meta-analysis showed that relaxation might reduce depressive symptoms, and the effect is not worse than that of psychotherapy.

RESUMO

Previous studies have found that magnetite can promote the hydrolysis-acidification but inhibit the methanogenesis, while zero-valent iron (ZVI) only promoted the methanogenesis. Therefore, a new two-phase anaerobic digestion model, in which magnetite was added to the first phase, and ZVI was added to the second phase, was proposed to promote both hydrolysis-acidification and methanogenesis and avoid magnetite inhibition. The results showed that in the new model, methane production was improved by 10.2% and 18.1% and chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal was improved by 7.9% and 10.9% compared with reactors that included only magnetite and only ZVI, respectively. In the new model reactors, inhibition of methanogenesis by magnetite was avoided compared with that of the magnetite-only reactors, and hydrolysis efficiency was improved via dissimilatory iron reduction (DIR) compared with that of ZVI-only reactors. The data on volatile fatty acids (VFAs), coenzyme F420 and electron transfer system (ETS) further confirmed these conclusions.

RESUMO

Despite high metabolic activity, the retina and optic nerve head lack traditional lymphatic drainage. We here identified an ocular glymphatic clearance route for fluid and wastes via the proximal optic nerve in rodents. ß-amyloid (Aß) was cleared from the retina and vitreous via a pathway dependent on glial water channel aquaporin-4 (AQP4) and driven by the ocular-cranial pressure difference. After traversing the lamina barrier, intra-axonal Aß was cleared via the perivenous space and subsequently drained to lymphatic vessels. Light-induced pupil constriction enhanced efflux, whereas atropine or raising intracranial pressure blocked efflux. In two distinct murine models of glaucoma, Aß leaked from the eye via defects in the lamina barrier instead of directional axonal efflux. The results suggest that, in rodents, the removal of fluid and metabolites from the intraocular space occurs through a glymphatic pathway that might be impaired in glaucoma.

RESUMO

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is one of most serious cyanotic congenital heart disease (CHD) and the prevalence is estimated to be 1 in 3000 live births worldwide. Though multiple studies have found genetic variants as risk factors for TOF, they could only explain a small fraction of the pathogenesis. Here, we performed whole genome sequencing (WGS) for 6 individuals derived from 2 families to evaluate pathogenic mutations located in both coding and noncoding regions. We characterized the annotated deleterious coding mutations and impaired noncoding mutations in regulatory elements by various data analysis. Additionally, functional assays were conducted to validate function regulatory elements and noncoding mutations. Interestingly, a compound heterozygous pattern with pathogenic coding and noncoding mutations was identified in probands. In proband 1, biallelic mutations (g.139409115A > T, encoding p.Asn685Ile; g.139444949C > A) in NOTCH1 exon and its regulatory element were detected. In vitro experiments revealed that the regulatory element acted as a silencer and the noncoding mutation decreased the expression of NOTCH1. In proband 2, we also found compound heterozygous mutations (g. 216235029C > T, encoding p.Val2281Met; g. 216525154A > C) which potentially regulated the function of FN1 gene. In summary, our study firstly reported an instance of newly identified noncoding mutation in regulatory element within the compound heterozygous pattern in TOF. The results provided a deeper understanding of TOF genetic architectures.

RESUMO

The key challenge for in vivo biosensing is to design biomarker-responsive contrast agents that can be readily detected and monitored by broadly available biomedical imaging modalities. While a range of biosensors have been designed for optical, photoacoustic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) modalities, technical challenges have hindered the development of ultrasound biosensors, even though ultrasound is widely available, portable, safe, and capable of both surface and deep tissue imaging. Typically, contrast enhanced ultrasound imaging is generated by gas-filled microbubbles, however they suffer from short imaging times due to diffusion of gas into the surrounding media. We present an alternate approach to generate solid nanosensors that reveal pH-specific changes in ultrasound contrast in biological environments. Silica cores were coated with pH-responsive poly(methacrylic acid) (PMASH) in a layer-by-layer (LbL) approach, and subsequently covered in a porous organosilica shell. Transmission electron microcopy (TEM) and confocal laser scanning micros-copy (CLSM) were employed to monitor the successful fabrication of the multilayered particles and to demonstrate pH dependent shrinkage/swelling of the PMASH layer. Reduction in pH below healthy physiological levels was then shown to result in significant and reversible increases in ultrasound contrast both in gel phantoms, mouse cadaver tissue, and in live mice. The future of such materials could be developed into a platform of biomarker-responsive ultrasound contrast agents for clinical applications.

RESUMO

This paper studies three-dimensional (3D) straight line path following and obstacle avoidance control for an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) without lateral and vertical driving forces. Firstly, the expected angular velocities are designed by using two different methods in the kinematic controller. The first one is a traditional method based on Line-of-sight (LOS) guidance law, and the second one is an improved method based on model predictive control (MPC). At the same time, a penalty item is designed by using the obstacle information detected by onboard sensors, which can realize the real-time obstacle avoidance of the unknown obstacle. Then, in order to overcome the uncertainty of the dynamics model and the saturation of actual control input, the dynamic controller is designed by using sliding mode control (SMC) technology. Finally, in the simulation experiment, the performance of the improved control method is verified by comparison with two traditional control methods based on LOS guidance law. Since the constraint of an AUV's angular velocities are considered in MPC, simulation results show that the improved control method uses MPC, and SMC not only improves the tracking quality of the AUV when switching paths near the waypoints and realizes real-time obstacle avoidance but also effectively reduces the mean square error (MSE) and saturation rate of the rudder angle. Therefore, this control method is more conducive to the system stability and saves energy.

RESUMO

Cobalamin-dependent methionine synthase (MetH) is involved in the process of tumor cell growth and survival. In this study, a novel series of N5-electrophilic substituted tetrahydropteroate analogs without glutamate residue were designed as non-classical antifolates and evaluated for their inhibitory activities against MetH. In addition, the cytotoxicity of target compounds was evaluated in human tumor cell lines. With N5-chloracetyl as the optimum group, further structure research on the benzene substituent and on the 2,4-diamino group was also performed. Compound 6c, with IC50 value of 12.1 µM against MetH and 0.16-6.12 µM against five cancer cells, acted as competitive inhibitor of MetH. Flow cytometry studies indicated that compound 6c arrested HL-60 cells in the G1-phase and then inducted late apoptosis. The molecular docking further explained the structure-activity relationship.

RESUMO

As nanotechnologies advance into clinical medicine, novel methods for applying nanomedicine to cardiovascular diseases are emerging. Extensive research has been undertaken to unlock the complex pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. However, this complexity presents challenges to develop effective imaging and therapeutic modalities for early diagnosis and acute intervention. The choice of ligand-receptor system vastly influences the effectiveness of nanomedicine. This review collates current ligand-receptor systems used in targeting functionalised nanoparticles for diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis. Our focus is on the binding affinity and selectivity of ligand-receptor systems, as well as the relative abundance of targets throughout the development and progression of atherosclerosis. Antibody-based targeting systems are currently the most commonly researched due to their high binding affinities when compared to other ligands, such as antibody fragments, peptides, and other small molecules. However, antibodies tend to be immunogenic due to their size. Engineering antibody fragments can address this issue but will compromise their binding affinity. Peptides are promising ligands due to their synthetic flexibility and low production costs. Alongside the aforementioned binding affinity of ligands, the choice of target and its abundance throughout distinct stages of atherosclerosis and thrombosis is relevant to the intended purpose of the nanomedicine. Further studies to investigate the components of atherosclerotic plaques are required as their cellular and molecular profile shifts over time.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: To recommend a new simple and explicit index termed the anteroposterior diameter of the lateral ventricle index (ALVI) for assessing brain ventricular size in neuroimaging and to compare Evans index (EI) between idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) patients and age-matched healthy elderly subjects. METHODS: Retrospective measurements of ventricular volume (VV), relative VV (RVV), the EI, and the ALVI were taken from thin-section CT scans for 23 pre-shunt-insertion iNPH patients and 62 age-matched healthy elderly volunteers. The area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve (AUC), net reclassification improvement (NRI), and integrated discrimination improvement (IDI) were calculated to assess the effectiveness of ALVI scores for predicting VV. RESULTS: The correlations between VV or RVV and ALVI scores (VV, r = 0.957; RVV, r = 0.983) were significantly stronger than the corresponding correlations with EI scores (VV, r = 0.843; RVV, r = 0.840). The AUC for ALVI scores was significantly greater than the AUC for EI scores. Furthermore, with the inclusion of the ALVI, the NRI value was 0.14 and the IDI value was 0.14; these improvements were also statistically significant. CONCLUSION: The ALVI is a more accurate and more explicitly defined marker of VV than the EI and assesses ventricular enlargement effectively. We suggest that ventricular enlargement of the healthy elderly be defined by ALVI > 0.50.

RESUMO

Intergenic region of begomovirus genome is vital to virus replication and viral gene transcription in plants. Previous studies have reported that Tomato yellow leaf curl China virus (TYLCCNV), a begomovirus, is able to accumulate and transcribe in its whitefly vector. However, the viral and host components that participate in begomovirus transcription in whiteflies are hitherto unknown. Using a yeast one-hybrid system, we identified >50 whitefly proteins that interacted with TYLCCNV intergenic region. Dual luciferase analysis revealed that one of the identified proteins, the hairy and enhancer of split homolog-1 (HES1), specifically bound to CACGTG motif in TYLCCNV intergenic region. Silencing HES1 decreased viral transcription, accumulation and transmission. These results demonstrate that the interactions between whitefly proteins and the intergenic region of TYLCCNV may contribute to viral transcription in the whitefly vector. Our findings offer valuable clues for the research and development of novel strategies to interfere with begomovirus transmission.

RESUMO

Begomoviruses (genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae) are transmitted by whiteflies of the Bemisia tabaci complex in a persistent, circulative manner. Considering the extensive damage caused by begomoviruses to crop production worldwide, it is imperative to understand the interaction between begomoviruses and their whitefly vector. To do so, localization and quantification of the virus in the vector tissues is crucial. Here, using tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) as an example, we describe a detailed protocol to localize begomoviruses in whitefly midguts, primary salivary glands, and ovaries by immunofluorescence. The method is based on the use of specific antibodies against a virus coat protein, dye-labeled secondary antibodies, and a confocal microscope. The protocol can also be used to colocalize begomoviral and whitefly proteins. We further describe a protocol for the quantification of TYLCV in whitefly midguts, primary salivary glands, hemolymph, and ovaries by quantitative PCR (qPCR). Using primers specifically designed for TYLCV, the protocols for quantification allow the comparison of the amount of TYLCV in different tissues of the whitefly. The described protocol is potentially useful for the quantification of begomoviruses in the body of a whitefly and a virus-infected plant. These protocols can be used to analyze the circulation pathway of begomoviruses in the whitefly or as a complement to other methods to study whitefly-begomovirus interactions.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To establise the bank of platelet donors with the human platelet antigen (HPA) 1-6, 15 genes so as to provide the HPA-matched platelets for the patients. METHODS: The HPA genotyping of platelets donors and patients with platelet antibody positive confirmed by sercening was performed by using the SSP-PCR; the efficacy of transfusing the HPA-matched platelets for 37 cases platelet antibody positive was analyzed. RESULTS: The most common genotype in platelet donors were HPA-1a/1a-2a/2a-3a/3b-4a/4a-5a/5a-6a/6a-15a/15b, followed by HPA-1a/1a-2a/2a-3a/3a-4a/4a-5a/5a-6a/6a-15a/15b; the most common genotype in 53 cases of platelet antibody positive confirened by screening were HPA-1a/1a-2a/2a-3a/3b-4a/4a-5a/5a-6a/6a-15a/15b. Among 37 patients with platelet antibody positive confirened by screeming, 28 showed that the transfusion of HPA-matched platelets was effective with statistically significant difference in comparison with random transfusion group. The HPA-3, HPA-15 were the main factors leading to polymorphisms. CONCLUSION: HPA-3 and HPA-15 are polymorphic, which should be focused on. HPA-matched platelets can improve the efficiency of platelet transfusion, and avoid the waste of blood resources. The genotypes of platelet donors can basically meet the requirements for common genotype transfusion.

RESUMO

Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), being highly virulent and contagious in piglets, has caused significant damage to the pork industries of many countries worldwide. There are no commercial drugs targeting coronaviruses (CoVs), and few studies on anti-PEDV inhibitors. The coronavirus 3C-like protease (3CLpro) has a conserved structure and catalytic mechanism and plays a key role during viral polyprotein processing, thus serving as an appealing antiviral drug target. Here, we report the anti-PEDV effect of the broad-spectrum inhibitor GC376 (targeting 3Cpro or 3CLpro of viruses in the picornavirus-like supercluster). GC376 was highly effective against the PEDV 3CLpro and exerted similar inhibitory effects on two PEDV strains. Furthermore, the structure of the PEDV 3CLpro in complex with GC376 was determined at 1.65 Å. We elucidated structural details and analyzed the differences between GC376 binding with the PEDV 3CLpro and GC376 binding with the transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) 3CLpro. Finally, we explored the substrate specificity of PEDV 3CLpro at the P2 site and analyzed the effects of Leu group modification in GC376 on inhibiting PEDV infection. This study helps us to understand better the PEDV 3CLpro substrate specificity, providing information on the optimization of GC376 for development as an antiviral therapeutic against coronaviruses.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: High-salt diet is one of the most important risk factors for hypertension. Intestinal flora has been reported to be associated with high salt-induced hypertension (hSIH). However, the detailed roles of intestinal flora in hSIH pathogenesis have not yet been fully elucidated. OBJECTIVE: To reveal the roles and mechanisms of intestinal flora in hSIH development. METHODS AND RESULTS: The abovementioned issues were investigated using various techniques including 16S rRNA gene sequencing, untargeted metabolomics, selective bacterial culture, and fecal microbiota transplantation. We found that high-salt diet induced hypertension in Wistar rats. The fecal microbiota of healthy rats could dramatically lower blood pressure (BP) of hypertensive rats, whereas the fecal microbiota of hSIH rats had opposite effects. The composition, metabolism, and interrelationship of intestinal flora in hSIH rats were considerably reshaped, including the increased corticosterone level and reduced Bacteroides and arachidonic acid levels, which tightly correlated with BP. The serum corticosterone level was also significantly increased in rats with hSIH. Furthermore, the above abnormalities were confirmed in patients with hypertension. The intestinal Bacteroides fragilis could inhibit the production of intestinal-derived corticosterone induced by high-salt diet through its metabolite arachidonic acid. CONCLUSIONS: hSIH could be transferred by fecal microbiota transplantation, indicating the pivotal roles of intestinal flora in hSIH development. High-salt diet reduced the levels of B fragilis and arachidonic acid in the intestine, which increased intestinal-derived corticosterone production and corticosterone levels in serum and intestine, thereby promoting BP elevation. This study revealed a novel mechanism different from inflammation/immunity by which intestinal flora regulated BP, namely intestinal flora could modulate BP by affecting steroid hormone levels. These findings enriched the understanding of the function of intestinal flora and its effects on hypertension.

RESUMO

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have become a playground for exploring rich physical phenomena like superconductivity and charge-density-waves (CDW). Here, we report the synthesis of the atom-thin TaSe2 with a rare 3R phase and enhanced superconductivity. The 3R phase is achieved by an ambient pressure chemical vapor deposition (CVD) strategy and confirmed by the high-resolution aberration-corrected STEM. Low-temperature transport data reveal an enhanced superconducting transition temperature (Tc) of 1.6 K in the 3R-TaSe2, which undoubtedly breaks the traditional perception of TaSe2 crystal as a material with Tc close to 0 K. This work demonstrates the strength of ambient pressure CVD in the exploration of crystal polymorphism, highlights a decisive role of layer stacking order in the superconducting transition, and provides fresh insights on manipulating crystal structures to gain access to enhanced Tc.

RESUMO

Collective decision-making is important for coordination and synchronization of the activities among group-living animals and the mechanisms guiding such procedure involve a great variety of characteristics of behavior and motivation. This study provides some evidence investigating collective movement initiation in a multi-level social band of the golden snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus roxellana) located in the Mts. Qinling, China. We collect 1223 datum records relevant to decision initiation from six OMUs. The results indicate that collective movement initiation could be divided into two continual but relatively independent processes: decisions on moving direction and movement implementation. In both processes, adult individuals are more likely to initiate the decision-making, while other adults vote on initiator's preference, with a threshold, a supporting number required for a success. Thus, voting behavior and quorum fulfillment contribute to a successful decision-making. Adult individuals play important role in making decisions for moving direction and implementation. For a successful collective movement initiation, the individuals being more central in grooming network initiate decisions more frequently than the others, and attract voters more easily. Furthermore, following the initiation, at least four positive voters are required for a direction decision and at least three positive voters are needed for the decision on movement implementation, which could be considered as the threshold of quorum numbers required for a successful decision. This study has provided some very interesting information and scientific evidence in understanding social structure and behaviors of the nonhuman primates with a social structure very similar to humans'. Thus, some results can directly be referred to the comprehension of human social structure and behavior.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide of which lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is the most common. The identification of oncogenes and effective drug targets is the key to individualized LUAD treatment. Actin-like protein 8 (ACTL8), a member of the cancer/testis antigen family, is associated with tumor growth and patient prognosis in various types of cancer. However, whether ACTL8 is involved in the development of LUAD remains unknown. The aim of the present study was to demonstrate the role of ACTL8 in human LUAD cells. METHODS: The expression of ACTL8 in LUAD tissues and cell lines was assessed using immunohistochemistry and western blotting. Additionally, plasmids expressing ACTL8-specific short hairpin RNAs were used to generate lentiviruses which were subsequently used to infect A549 and NCI-H1975 human LUAD cells. Cell proliferation, migration, invasion and apoptosis, as well as cell cycle progression and the expression of protein markers of epithelial to mesenchymal transition were investigated. A549 cell tumor growth in nude mice was also examined. RESULTS: The results showed that ACTL8 was highly expressed in A549 and NCI-H1975 LUAD cell lines. Additionally, ACTL8-knockdown inhibited proliferation, colony formation, cell cycle progression, migration and invasion, and increased apoptosis in both cell lines. Furthermore, in vivo experiments in nude mice revealed that ACTL8-knockdown inhibited A549 cell tumor growth. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that ACTL8 serves an oncogenic role in human LUAD cells, and that ACTL8 may represent a potential therapeutic target for LUAD. KEY POINTS: Our results suggest that ACTL8 serves an oncogenic role in human LUAD cells, and that ACTL8 may represent a potential therapeutic target for LUAD.
