RESUMO

Porkis thelargest-producedandmost-consumedmeat intheworld, and the food market globalization has increased public attention to food origin. Therefore, advanced techniques are required to determine the geographical origin of pork. This study investigated the prospects of using fingerprint analysis of mineral elements and machine learning to facilitate the traceability of pork origin in China. The results showed that each of seven regions had a characteristic element content profile. To improve the performance of the origin traceability model, popular machine learning techniques in food authenticity were introduced. This resulted in a high-performance origin tracing model. Comparing various machine learning algorithms, the feedforward neural network achieved superior performance with an overall accuracy of 95.71% and area under the curve close to one. Thus, this study proves that mineral elements analysis assisted by machine learning can be applied to distinguish pork samples within a country.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm (ATAA) is caused by the progressive weakening and dilatation of the aortic wall and can lead to aortic dissection, rupture, and other life-threatening complications. To improve our understanding of ATAA pathogenesis, we aimed to comprehensively characterize the cellular composition of the ascending aortic wall and to identify molecular alterations in each cell population of human ATAA tissues. METHODS: We performed single-cell RNA sequencing analysis of ascending aortic tissues from 11 study participants, including 8 patients with ATAA (4 women and 4 men) and 3 control subjects (2 women and 1 man). Cells extracted from aortic tissue were analyzed and categorized with single-cell RNA sequencing data to perform cluster identification. ATAA-related changes were then examined by comparing the proportions of each cell type and the gene expression profiles between ATAA and control tissues. We also examined which genes may be critical for ATAA by performing the integrative analysis of our single-cell RNA sequencing data with publicly available data from genome-wide association studies. RESULTS: We identified 11 major cell types in human ascending aortic tissue; the high-resolution reclustering of these cells further divided them into 40 subtypes. Multiple subtypes were observed for smooth muscle cells, macrophages, and T lymphocytes, suggesting that these cells have multiple functional populations in the aortic wall. In general, ATAA tissues had fewer nonimmune cells and more immune cells, especially T lymphocytes, than control tissues did. Differential gene expression data suggested the presence of extensive mitochondrial dysfunction in ATAA tissues. In addition, integrative analysis of our single-cell RNA sequencing data with public genome-wide association study data and promoter capture Hi-C data suggested that the erythroblast transformation-specific related gene(ERG) exerts an important role in maintaining normal aortic wall function. CONCLUSIONS: Our study provides a comprehensive evaluation of the cellular composition of the ascending aortic wall and reveals how the gene expression landscape is altered in human ATAA tissue. The information from this study makes important contributions to our understanding of ATAA formation and progression.

RESUMO

Previously, we found that mevalonic acid stimulates 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMGR) expression in bovine intramuscular adipocytes to influence adipocyte differentiation. However, any direct links among HMGR, steroidogenic genes, and cholesterol content remain unclear. RNA-Seq was conducted to determine the differences between the gene expression profiles of bovine adipocytes containing different HMGR expression constructs. In total, 10,234 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were found. Of these, 35 and 6 DEGs between the control and the overexpression groups were functionally related to lipid and energy metabolism, respectively. In addition, 43 and 8 DEGs between the control and the HMGR inhibition groups were related to lipid and energy metabolism, respectively. Several DEGs related to lipid and energy metabolism were also identified between the HMGR overexpression group and the HMGR interference group, and many DEGs were correlated positively or negatively with the overexpression or inhibition of HMGR. We also found that, following the activation or inhibition of the HMGR gene, AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and sirtuin type 1 (SIRT1) had opposite expression patterns in bovine intramuscular adipocytes. Interestingly, the HMGR gene was downregulated when HMGR was overexpressed, and upregulated when HMGR was inhibited. Our findings establish a theoretical understanding of signaling pathways involved in cholesterol synthesis by elucidating the relationships between key genes.

RESUMO

Pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF) is one of the most common but stranded complications for salvage laryngectomy. As for localized fistula, there is no convincing standard and method to cure. This paper described a patient who was submitted to extensive resection of mass in right lingual root, total laryngectomy, and pharyngoesophageal reconstruction with an anterolateral thigh flap (ALTF), because of recurred carcinoma of right lingual root which invaded bilateral epiglottis. 2 weeks after surgery, subsequent pharyngocutaneous fistula developed at the junction of the tracheostomy, and maintained over 2 months under conservative treatment. With the assistance of laryngoscope, inner and outer orificiums of fistula were found and sealed by bundled iodoform strip. 9 days after sealing, fistula had been already filled with fresh granulation tissue. During 2 years after surgery, the fistula area dose not recur. This technique provides a safe and effective way for sealing the inner and outer orificiums of fistula.

RESUMO

Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 1 (GLRaV-1) is a major pathogen associated with grapevine leafroll disease. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying GLRaV-1 interactions with plant cells are unclear. Using Agrobacterium infiltration-mediated RNA-silencing assays, we demonstrated that GLRaV-1 p24 protein (p24G1) acts as an RNA-silencing suppressor (RSS), inhibiting local and systemic RNA silencing. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays showed that p24G1 binds double-stranded 21-nucleotide small interfering RNA (siRNA), and that siRNA binding is required but not sufficient for its RSS activity. p24G1 localizes in the nucleus and can self-interact through its amino acid 10 to 210 region. Dimerization is needed for p24G1 interaction with importin α1 before moving to the nucleus, but is not required for its siRNA binding and RSS activity. Expression of p24G1 from a binary pGD vector or potato virus X-based vector elicited a strong hypersensitive response in Nicotiana species, indicating that p24G1 may be a factor in pathogenesis. Furthermore, p24G1 function in pathogenesis required its RSS activity, dimerization and nuclear localization. In addition, the region of amino acids 122-139 played a crucial role in the nuclear import, siRNA binding, silencing suppression and pathogenic activity of p24G1. These results contribute to our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying GLRaV-1 infection.

RESUMO

A new metal-organic framework (MOF), [Eu2(HBDPP)2(H2O)2(DMF)2](H2O)2 (H4BDPP = 3,5-bis(3,5-dicarboxylphenyl) pyridine; DMF = N,N-dimethylformamide) (Eu-MOF), has been successfully synthesized under solvothermal conditions. A 1D chain was formed by the adjacent Eu2(COO)24+ dinuclear cluster and HBDPP3-, and further connected by HBDPP3- to form an infinitely extended 3D structure. In order to further improve the proton conductivity of the Eu-MOF, imidazole was encapsulated in its pores to form a composite material named Im@Eu-MOF. AC impedance analysis shows that the highest proton conductivity of the Im@Eu-MOF reaches up to 4.53 × 10-4 S cm-1 at 348 K and 98% RH, which is about 10 times higher than that of the Eu-MOF. In addition, the Eu-MOF can be considered an excellent luminescence-based sensor with a high sensitivity and low detection limit (0.1 µM) for the detection of trace amounts of ascorbic acid.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Ensartinib is a novel, potent and highly selective inhibitor of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) that has promising clinical activity and low toxicity in patients with ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer. This study was conducted to investigate the pharmacokinetics, metabolism and excretion of ensartinib following a single 200 mg/100 µCi oral dose of radiolabeled ensartinib to healthy subjects. METHODS: Six healthy male subjects were enrolled and administrated an oral suspension in a fasted state. Blood, urine and feces were collected. Radioactivity concentrations were measured by liquid scintillation counting and plasma concentrations of ensartinib by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Both techniques were applied for metabolite profiling and characterization. RESULTS: The mean total recovery was 101.21% of the radiolabeled dose with 91.00% and 10.21% excreted in feces and urine, respectively. Unchanged ensartinib was the predominant drug-related component in urine and feces, representing 4.39% and 38.12% of the administered dose, respectively. Unchanged ensartinib and its metabolite M465 were the major circulating components, accounting for the same 27.45% of the plasma total radioactivity (AUC0-24h pool), while other circulating metabolites were minor, accounting for less than 10%. Mean Cmax, AUC0-∞, T1/2 and Tmax values for ensartinib in plasma were 185 ng/mL, 3827 h ng/mL, 18.3 h and 3.25 h, respectively. The total radioactivity in plasma was cleared with terminal half-life of 27.2 h. Treatment with ensartinib was well tolerated, and no serious adverse events were reported. CONCLUSION: It was well tolerated in the six healthy male subjects following a single oral administration of 200 mg/100 µCi dose of ensartinib. Besides unchanged ensartinib, metabolite of M465 was the predominant circulating drug-related component. The drug was primarily eliminated in feces. CLINICAL TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov NCT03804541.

RESUMO

The three-dimensional configuration of the chromatin architecture is known to be crucial for alterations in the transcriptional network; however, the underlying mechanisms of epigenetic control of senescence-related gene expression by modulating the chromatin architecture remain unknown. Here, we demonstrate frequent chromosomal compartment switching during mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) replicative senescence as characterized by senescence-inactivated (SIAEs) and -activated enhancers (SAEs) in topologically associated domains (TADs). Mechanistically, SAEs are closely correlated with senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) genes, which are a key transcriptional feature of an aging microenvironment that contributes to tumor progression, aging acceleration, and immunoinflammatory responses. Moreover, SAEs can positively regulate robust changes in SASP expression. The transcription factor CCAAT/enhancer binding protein α (C/EBPα) is capable of enhancing SAE activity, which accelerates the emergence of SAEs flanking SASPs and the secretion of downstream factors, contributing to the progression of senescence. Our results provide novel insight into the TAD-related control of SASP gene expression by revealing hierarchical roles of the chromatin architecture, transcription factors, and enhancer activity in the regulation of cellular senescence.

RESUMO

Psoriasis is characterized by keratinocyte hyperproliferation. While significant progress has been made in understanding the molecular mechanism regulating the proliferation of keratinocytes, little is known about the epigenetic factors that control this process. EZH2 and EZH2 mediated trimethylation of histone H3 lysine 27 (H3K27me3) was previously shown ectopically expressed in carcinoma and mediated proliferation, thereby we sought to clarify the role of EZH2-H3K27me3 in the proliferation of psoriatic keratinocyte. Interestingly, we found that EZH2 and H3K27me3 were both overexpressed in the epidermis of psoriatic lesional skin compared to normal skin. In vitro, the expression of EZH2 and H3K27me3 was stimulated in human keratinocytes treated with mixture of psoriasis-related cytokines pool (TNF-α, IFN-γ, IL-17A, and IL-22). Knockdown of EZH2 significantly reduced keratinocyte proliferative activity. Results from mRNA microarray analysis suggested that Kallikrein-8 (KLK8) might be the target gene of EZH2 in psoriatic keratinocytes. Overexpression or knockdown KLK8 could partially reverse the abnormal proliferation of keratinocytes caused by knockdown or overexpression of EZH2. In vivo, the inhibitor of EZH2, GSK126 could ameliorate the imiquimod-induced psoriasiform lesion. These results suggest that EZH2 might be a therapeutic target for the treatment of psoriasis.

RESUMO

Photoinduced mass transfer of azo polymers is a fascinating function with potential applications in areas ranging from photonics and nanofabrication to cell biology. However, the true nature of this unique effect still remains elusive in many aspects due to its puzzling mechanism and lack of a way for real-time observation. This work presents a new strategy to study the photoinduced mass transfer through in situ optical microscopic observation and videoing on single particles under laser irradiation. By inspecting the shape evolution processes of the particles from the side view, both the scale and direction of the mass transfer can be well characterized in a real-time manner, which shows great advantages for carrying out the systematic investigation. The mass transfer behaviour was thus investigated using the microspheres with diameters (D) ranging from micrometer to submillimeter. The mass transfer in the direction of the electric vibration was observed to occur in different scales for azo polymers with different degrees of functionalization (DFs) controlled by the light penetration depths. With the varied combinations of particle sizes and DFs, the particles with diversified shape-anisotropy and complex morphologies were generated by the mass transfer. For the microspheres with sizes in micrometer and submillimeter scales, those formed from the azo polymers with extremely high DF (100%) and extremely low DF (1%) respectively exhibited the most efficient mass transfer to cause significant shape deformations. With the optical and thermal simulations, these observations are well rationalized by considering the optical power distribution, energy utilization efficiency and heat dissipation route. This study not only provides deep insight into the photoinduced mass transfer behavior, but also extends the mass transfer scale of the particles from micrometer to submillimeter for the first time.

RESUMO

Polluted sediments pose potential threats to environmental and human health and challenges to water management. Biochar is a carbon-rich material produced through pyrolysis of biomass waste, which performs well in soil amendment, climate improvement, and water treatment. Unlike soil and aqueous solutions, sediments are both the sink and source of water pollutants. Regarding in-situ sediment remediation, biochar also shows unique advantages in removing or immobilizing inorganic and organic pollutants (OPs). This paper provides a comprehensive review of the current methods of in-situ biochar amendments specific to polluted sediments. Physicochemical properties (pore structure, surface functional groups, pH and surface charge, mineral components) were influenced by the pyrolysis conditions, feedstock types, and modification of biochar. Furthermore, the remediation mechanisms and efficiency of pollutants (heavy metals [HMs] and OPs) vary with the biochar properties. Biochar influences microbial compositions and benthic organisms in sediments. Depending on the location or flow rate of polluted sediments, potential utilization methods of biochar alone or coupled with other materials are discussed. Finally, future practical challenges of biochar as a sediment amendment are addressed. This review provides an overview and outlook for sediment remediation using biochar, which will be valuable for further scientific research and engineering applications.

RESUMO

NOD-, LRR- and pyrin domain-containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome and triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (TREM-1) are considered critical orchestrators of the inflammatory response in acute lung injury (ALI). However, few assumptions are based on the relationship between them. Here, we investigated the effect of NLRP3 inflammasome activation on the TREM-1 expression in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI and macrophages. We found that inhibition of the NLRP3 inflammasome reduced the TREM-1 expression and pathological lung injury in mice with ALI. Then, primary murine macrophages were used to dissect the underlying mechanistic events of the activation NLRP3 inflammasome involved in the TREM-1 expression. Our results demonstrated that the conditioned medium (CM) from NLRP3 inflammasome-activated-macrophages up-regulated the TREM-1 expression in macrophages, while this effect was reversed by an NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitor MCC950. Furthermore, neutralizing antibodies anti-IL-18 and anti-HMGB1 reduced the TREM-1 expression induced by NLRP3 inflammasome activation. Mechanistically, we found that CM from NLRP3 inflammasome-activated-macrophages increased the level of inhibitor κB kinase protein phosphorylation (p-IκBα) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) content, and promoted IκBα protein degradation in macrophages. While the inhibition of nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) and scavenging ROS eliminated the up-regulation of TREM-1 induced by the NLRP3 inflammasome activation in macrophages. In summary, our study confers NLRP3 inflammasome as a new trigger of TREM-1 signing, which allows additional insight into the pathological of the inflammatory response in ALI.

RESUMO

Little is known regarding the outcome of lymphoma patients undergoing autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) using inadequate hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) doses. Fifty-six patients were enrolled in the study, and the cohort was subdivided into two groups according to the infusion dose: < 1 × 106/kg (poor HSC group) and 1-2 × 106/kg (unfavorable HSC group). Compared with the unfavorable group, the poor HSC group had a longer median time to neutrophil (13 vs. 11 days, p = .007) and platelet engraftment (17 vs. 13 days, p = .024). CD34+ cell infusion dose of < 1 × 106/kg was the only risk factor for neutrophil and platelet engraftment. The expected 3-year progression-free survival and overall survival rates for the whole cohort were 53% and 66%, and no statistical difference was observed between two groups. In conclusion, inadequate HSC infusion dose did not negatively impact AHSCT patient survival but significantly prolonged the time to hematopoietic engraftment.

RESUMO

Adding particles of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) into liquid electrolytes leads to semiliquid electrolytes, where nanoporous MOFs enclose anions while facilitating lithium-ion conduction. The improved transport efficiency of lithium-ions in semiliquid electrolytes boosts effective reaction kinetics, mitigates polarization, and produces affinitive electrolyte-electrode interfaces, which afford enhanced cycle durability for high-rate lithium batteries.

RESUMO

IR780 as a commercially available dye with near-infrared emission has been extensively applied in fluorescent probes and bioimaging. In this work, to further intensify the optical behavior, a tetrahydropyridine ring was used to replace the cyclohexene ring at the center of IR780, forming a cyanine dye Cy-NH with near-infrared emission. Photophysical properties demonstrated that Cy-NH exhibits good optical performance. In particular, Cy-NH contains two functional reaction sites (e.g. Cl and NH sites on the tetrahydropyridine ring) and can be used to construct functional cyanine dyes. Investigation on imaging showed that these cyanines can be used as near-infrared fluorescent imaging agents in living cells and in vivo.

RESUMO

Seven new ß-caryophyllene derivatives, pestalotiphains A-G (1-7), along with six known analogues (8-13), were isolated from the plant-associated Pestalotiopsis hainanensis. Compound 1 represents the first example of a caryophyllene-adenine hybrid, and 2 contains a novel oxatricyclo[4.3.1.0] system. Their structures and absolute configurations were assigned by interpretation of a combination of spectroscopic data and electronic circular dichroism calculations. Compound 8 exhibited moderate inhibition of HL-60 and THP-1 cell lines (IC50, 6.2 and 2.0 µM, respectively). A candidate biosynthetic gene cluster responsible for these compounds was uncovered by bioinformatics analyses and confirmed by a biochemical approach.

RESUMO

Long non-coding RNAs have important roles in the occurrence and progression of various cancers. However, the molecular mechanism of lncRNAs in colorectal cancer (CRC) is not well illustrated. Thus, we used bioinformatics methods to find potential lncRNAs associated with CRC progression, and chose SH3PXD2A-AS1 as a candidate for further analysis. The roles of SH3PXD2A-AS1 in CRC cells were determined by CCK-8, transwell invasion, wound healing and flow cytometry assays. Besides, we established the CRC tumor models in nude mice to study the effect of SH3PXD2A-AS1 on the tumor growth. Based on the ceRNA hypothesis, we used miRDB and miRTarBase websites to identify the SH3PXD2A-AS1-related ceRNA regulatory network, and measured the roles of this network in CRC cells. The results revealed that the expression profiles of SH3PXD2A-AS1 from GEO and TCGA databases showed an aberrant high level in CRC tissues compared with colorectal normal tissues. SH3PXD2A-AS1 over-expression was also found in CRC cells. SH3PXD2A-AS1 knockdown inhibited the CRC cellular proliferation, invasion and migration but induced apoptosis. Besides, SH3PXD2A-AS1 knockdown also suppressed the growth of CRC tumors. Furthermore, SH3PXD2A-AS1 could function as a ceRNA of miR-330-5p. Additionally, UBA2 was proved to be a target gene of miR-330-5p. Moreover, SH3PXD2A-AS1 knockdown downregulated UBA2 expression through sponging miR-330-5p to inactivate the Wnt/ß-catenin signaling pathway, thereby inhibiting the cell growth and promoting apoptosis. Therefore, the SH3PXD2A-AS1/miR-330-5p/UBA2 network could regulate the progression of CRC through the Wnt/ß-catenin pathway. These findings offer new sights for understanding the pathogenesis of CRC and provide potential biomarkers for CRC treatment.

RESUMO

Dysfunction in the suppressive function of regulatory T cells (Tregs) has been related to the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated the importance of circular RNAs (circRNAs) in regulating various biological process, such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, etc. However, the role of circRNAs in modulating the suppressive functions of psoriatic Tregs and the underlying mechanisms have not been investigated. Here, by using circRNA microarray analysis, we discovered four upregulated and four downregulated circRNAs in psoriatic Tregs. Quantitative real-time PCR further confirmed a significant increase of circ_0003738 in psoriatic Tregs. Importantly, knockdown of circ_0003738 by lentivirus in psoriatic Tregs could restore their suppressive functions via inhibiting the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-17A (IL-17A) and interferon (IFN)-γ. Moreover, we found that circ_0003738 could bind to miR-562 to release the inhibition of target gene IL-17RA (IL-17 receptor A), thus promoting IL-17A signaling in psoriatic Tregs. In parallel, circ_0003738 acted also as a sponge for miR-490-5p and relieved inhibition for the target gene IFNGR2, which promoted IFN-γ signaling in psoriatic Tregs. Our study demonstrated that upregulated circ_0003738 decreased the suppressive function of psoriatic Tregs via the miR-562/IL17RA and miR-490-5p/IFNGR2 (IFN-γ receptor 2) axis, which indicated the involvement of circRNAs in the pathogenesis of dysfunctional Tregs. These findings will provide new therapeutic targets for the treatment of psoriasis.

RESUMO

A novel twofold interpenetrating two-dimensional (2D) ZnII coordination framework, poly[[(µ-1,3-bis(2-methyl-1H-imidazol-1-yl)benzene-κ2N3:N3)(µ-naphthalene-2,6-dicarboxylato-κ2O2:O6)zinc(II)] dimethylformamide monosolvate], {[Zn(C12H6O4)(C14H14N4)]·C3H7NO}n or {[Zn(1,3-BMIB)(NDC)]·DMF}n (I), where H2NDC is naphthalene-2,6-dicarboxylic acid, 1,3-BMIB is 1,3-bis(2-methyl-1H-imidazol-1-yl)benzene and DMF is dimethylformamide, was prepared and characterized through IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, thermal analysis and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that (I) exhibits an unusual twofold interpenetrating 2D network. In addition, it displays strong fluorescence emissions and a high photocatalytic activity for the degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) under UV-light irradiation.
