RESUMO

Recent evidence suggests that the human genitourinary microbiome plays a significant role in mediating the development and progression of urological tumors, including bladder cancer (BC). Clinicians widely recognize the role of Bacille Calmette Guérin (BCG), an attenuated Mycobacterium tuberculosis vaccine, in the management of intermediate- and high-risk NMIBC. However, compared to the large body of evidence on the gut microbiota and gastrointestinal tumors, limited information is available about the interaction between BC and the genitourinary microbiome. This is an expanding field that merits further investigation. Urologists will need to consider the potential impact of the microbiome in BC diagnosis, prevention of recurrence and progression, and treatment prospects in the future. This review highlights the approaches adopted for microbiome research and the findings and inadequacies of current research on BC.

RESUMO

The presence of periosteum can greatly affect the repair of a bone fracture. An artificial periosteum imitates the biological function of natural periosteum, which is capable of protecting and maintaining bone tissue structure and promoting bone repair. In our artificial periosteum, biocompatible methacrylate gelatin was used to provide the mechanical support of the membrane, E7 peptide added bioactivity, and Wharton's jelly provided the biological activity support of the membrane, resulting in a hydrogel membrane (G-E-W) for the chemotactic recruitment of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) and promoting cell proliferation and osteogenic differentiation. In an in vitro experiment, the G-E-W membrane recruited BMSCs and promoted cell proliferation and osteogenic differentiation. After 4 weeks and 8 weeks of implantation in a rat skull defect, the group implanted with a G-E-W membrane was superior to the blank control group and single-component membrane group in both quantity and quality of new bone. The artificial G-E-W membrane recruits BMSC chemotaxis and promotes cell proliferation and osteogenic differentiation, thereby effectively improving the repair efficiency of fractures and bone defects.

RESUMO

Natural superoxide dismutase (SOD), consisting of proteins and metal cofactors, is widely used in food preservation because of its good antioxidant activity. However, due to the poor stability of SOD enzyme, its activity was reduced in the process of moving into the film, resulting in limited application. Based on the structure of the active site of the natural enzyme, Cu2+ was used to functionalize the melanin nanoparticles (NMPs) in ink of cuttlefish, and an SOD-like nanozyme (Cu-NMPs) with high stability, high activity and strong free radical scavenging capacity was constructed. In order to apply the constructed simulated enzyme to food preservation, the simulated enzyme was embedded into carrageenan (Carr) films to prepare the composite film for food packaging. The results showed that when the concentration of Cu-NMPs was 10 µg/mL, the ·O2- rate could reach more than 80 %, the activity exceeded that of 60 U/mL natural SOD. In addition, the fresh-keeping test of cherry tomatoes showed that Carr/Cu-NMPs composite film extended the storage time of cherry tomatoes by more 3 days. Therefore, the present work showed that nanozymes with advanced catalytic capabilities can be constructed by metal ions and NMPs, thus successfully combined with food packaging for food preservation.

RESUMO

Nature-derived chemicals have recently gained increased attention to settle down the challenges in the food industry. Quercetin has long been used as a natural medicine but its photoactivity has been neglected. In this work, by combining photodynamic bacteria inactivation (PDI) with an edible coating (Pectin/Quercetin) derived from FDA-approved chemicals, extend shelf-life and protected commercial quality of fresh-cut apples were achieved. Firstly, the potential photoactivated antibacterial performance of Quercetin (a natural plant flavonoid) was clarified with the treatment of a simulated sunlight lamp, realizing antibacterial efficacy of 100 % towards S. aureus (50 min) and L. monocytogenes (80 min) with light treatment. To develop safe and effective preservation of fresh-cut apples, Pectin/Quercetin edible coatings with 100 µmol/L quercetin were adopted. The results showed that the prepared edible coatings form a protective barrier over the surface of apples, effectively resisting bacterial infection and extending shelf life to 10 days while maintaining good commercial quality (including preferable color, keeping 100 % hardness, 80 % sugar content and 17.3 % weightlessness rate). Therefore, the prepared light-driven Pectin/Quercetin in this work has the potential to develop as fresh-cut fruit preservation technology.

RESUMO

Noncancerous diseases include a wide plethora of medical conditions beyond cancer and are a major cause of mortality around the world. Despite progresses in clinical research, many puzzles about these diseases remain unanswered, and new therapies are continuously being sought. The evolution of bio-nanomedicine has enabled huge advancements in biosensing, diagnosis, bioimaging, and therapeutics. The recent development of aggregation-induced emission luminogens (AIEgens) has provided an impetus to the field of molecular bionanomaterials. Following aggregation, AIEgens show strong emission, overcoming the problems associated with the aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) effect. They also have other unique properties, including low background interferences, high signal-to-noise ratios, photostability, and excellent biocompatibility, along with activatable aggregation-enhanced theranostic effects, which help them achieve excellent therapeutic effects as an one-for-all multimodal theranostic platform. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the overall progresses in AIEgen-based nanoplatforms for the detection, diagnosis, bioimaging, and bioimaging-guided treatment of noncancerous diseases. In addition, it details future perspectives and the potential clinical applications of these AIEgens in noncancerous diseases are also proposed. This review hopes to motivate further interest in this topic and promote ideation for the further exploration of more advanced AIEgens in a broad range of biomedical and clinical applications in patients with noncancerous diseases.

RESUMO

Pyramiding multiple resistant genes has been proposed as the most effective way to control wheat rust diseases globally. Identifying the most effective pyramids is challenged by the large pool of rust resistance genes, and limited information about their mechanisms of resistance and interactions. Here, using a high-density genetic map, a double haploid population, and multi-rust field testing, we aimed to systematically characterize the most effective gene pyramids for rust resistance from the durable multi-rust resistant CIMMYT cultivar, Parula. We revealed the Parula resistance gene pyramid contains Lr34/Yr18/Sr57 (Lr34), Lr46/Yr29/Sr58 (Lr46), Lr27/Yr30/Sr2 (Sr2) and Lr68. The efficacy, magnitude of effect and interactions with each other varied for the three rust diseases. A subpopulation mapping approach was applied to characterize the complex interactions of the resistance genes by controlling for the effect of Lr34. Using this approach, we found Lr34 and Lr68 have a strong additive effect for leaf rust, while no additive effects were observed for any rusts between Lr34 and Lr46. Lr34 combined synergistically with Sr12 from Thatcher for stem rust, while the additive effect of Lr34 and Sr2 was dependent on the type of rust and environment. Two novel leaf rust QTL from Parula were identified in this study, a stable QTL QLr-7BS, and QLr-5AS, which showed Lr34 dependent expression. With these findings, we propose combining 2-3 high value genes from Canadian wheat (e.g. Sr12 from Thatcher) with a foundational multi-APR cassette for desirable and durable resistance to all three rusts in Canadian wheat.

RESUMO

Catenary is referred to as "the real mathematical and mechanical form" in the architectural field. Because of the unique phase control characteristic of the catenary, it has excellent ability in optical manipulation. Here, we propose an optical waveform conversion device based on optical fiber-integrated catenary ring-array metasurfaces. The device consists of a cascade structure of a single-mode fiber (SMF) and a graded-index fiber (GIF). At the GIF end, two kinds of catenary ring-array metasurfaces are introduced to realize beam shaping from Gaussian beam (GB) to Bessel beam. The device can selectively generate a focused or non-diffracting Bessel beam by changing the circular polarization state of the incident light. It is worth noting that under some parameters of the device, the output Bessel beam can break through the diffraction limit, which has potential applications in the fields of optical imaging, optical communication, and optical trapping.

RESUMO

Na-ion batteries (SIBs) are emerging as a promising alternative to Li-ion batteries for large-scale energy storage in light of abundant Na resources and their low cost. Development of appropriate electrode materials that can conquer some critical issues such as low theoretical storage capacity and sluggish redox kinetics resulting from the larger radius of Na is urgently needed for their practical applications. In this work, boron-rich 2D BxN (x = 2, 3, and 5) has been explored as promising anode materials for high-performance SIBs based on density functional theory calculations. BxN electrodes exhibit moderate affinity toward Na-ions with adsorption energies of -0.41 to -1.21 eV, which allows stable Na-ion intercalation without the formation of metal dendrites. Moreover, both B3N and B5N deliver low diffusion barriers (0.28 and 0.08 eV) for Na-ion migration, guaranteeing a high charging/discharging rate. More importantly, these BxN anodes exhibit not only a remarkably high theoretical capacity of 1129-1313 mA h g-1 but also a low open-circuit voltage (0.45-0.87 V), which is important to achieve high energy density. AIMD simulations have confirmed the excellent cyclability of BxN electrodes during reversible lithiation/delithiation. These results suggested that the BxN electrode could be used as a new lightweight SIB anode with high capacity, cyclability, and desired rate performance.

RESUMO

The recurrence, progression, and drug resistance of prostate cancer (PC) is closely related to the cancer stem cells (CSCs). Therefore, it is necessary to find the key regulators of prostate cancer stem cells (PCSCs). Here, we analyzed the results of a single-class logistic regression machine learning algorithm (OCLR) to identify the PCSC-associated lncRNA MBNL1-AS1. The effects of MBNL1-AS1 on the stemness of CSCs was assessed using qPCR, western blot and sphere-forming assays. The role of MBNL1-AS1 in mediating the proliferation and invasion of the PC cell lines was examined using Transwell, wounding-healing, CCK-8, EdU and animal assays. Dual-luciferase and ChIRP assays were used to examine the molecular mechanism of MBNL1-AS1 in PCSCs. MBNL1-AS1 was shown to be negatively correlated with stemness index (mRNAsi), and even prognosis, tumor progression, recurrence, and drug resistance in PC patients. The knockdown of MBNL1-AS1 significantly affected the stemness of the PC cells, and subsequently their invasive and proliferative abilities. Molecular mechanism studies suggested that MBNL1-AS1 regulates CDKN1B through competitive binding to miR-221-3p, which led to the inhibition of the Wnt signaling pathway to affect PCSCs. In conclusion, our study identified MBNL1-AS1 as a key regulator of PCSCs and examined its mechanism of action in the malignant progression of PC.

RESUMO

In this paper, to separate and compensate the nonlinear error in the grating interferometer, we analyze the source and generation mechanism of this error, deduce the nonlinear error model of the measured signal and the calculated phase signal, and study the characteristics of the established nonlinear error model. The reason why the frequency multiples of ideal phase signals and higher-order nonlinear errors caused by ghost reflections and angular errors of the laser's z-axis are not integers is explained. Then, a nonlinear error separation and compensation method based on cross-correlation coefficient is proposed. Experiments show that the frequency multiplier relationship between the high-order nonlinear error and the ideal interference signal is close to but not equal to 3-fold. The peak-to-peak value of the compensated nonlinear error is reduced from 17.40 nm to 7.05 nm.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is one of the common emergencies in otorhinolaryngology. Several studies have shown that chronic inflammation is associated with its onset and prognosis. However, the association between some inflammatory biomarkers and SSNHL is still unclear. Therefore, we conducted this meta-analysis to explore the value of inflammatory biomarkers in the occurrence and prognosis of SSNHL. METHODS: Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane and Web of Science databases were searched comprehensively, the eligible literatures were screened out by formulating the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria. After extracting sample size, mean and standard deviation, we performed meta-analysis with standardized mean deviation (SMD) and 95% confidence interval (CI) as effect sizes. RESULTS: A total of 17 articles were included in this meta-analysis, including 2852 subjects, 1423 patients and 1429 healthy controls. The results of meta-analysis showed that the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) of the experimental group was significantly higher than the control group (SMD = 1.05, 95% CI 0.87-1.24, P < 0.001), the NLR of the recovery group was significantly lower than the unrecovered group (SMD = 0.68, 95% CI 0.27-1.08, P < 0.05); The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) of the experimental group was significantly higher than the control group (SMD = 0.55, 95% CI 0.34-0.76, P < 0.05), the PLR of the recovery group was significantly lower than the unrecovered group (SMD = 0.44, 95% CI 0.05-0.82, P < 0.05); The C-reactive protein-to-serum albumin ratio (CRP/Alb) of the experimental group was significantly higher than the control group (SMD = 0.39, 95% CI 0.04-0.74, P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The results showed that high NLR, PLR, and CRP/Alb indicated the occurrence of SSNHL, NLR and PLR could predict prognosis of SSNHL.

RESUMO

Glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs), the most widely used pesticide worldwide, have been reported to impair organ function in humans and animals. However, research on the effect of maternal GBHs exposure on the intestinal health of offspring has received little attention. Based on the glyphosate limits defined by Codex Alimentarius Commission and European Food Safety Authority, this study established pregnant sow exposure models to investigate the influence of low (L-GBHs, 20 mg/kg) and high concentration GBHs (H-GBHs, 100 mg/kg) on the intestinal health of offspring and proposed the protective mechanism mediated by betaine. The results showed that the intestinal morphology and barrier function of suckling piglets were damaged in the H-GBHs group. H-GBHs increased the activity of glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and levels of methane dicarboxylic aldehyde (MDA), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and inflammatory factors (tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-1ß (IL-1ß), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-10 (IL-10)) in suckling piglets and activated Nrf2-mediated antioxidant signaling pathway. Subsequently, we found that exposure to H-GBHs triggered endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) and further induced apoptosis by upregulating the expression of Bcl-2-associated X protein (Bax), Caspase3, Caspase9 and Caspase12. Moreover, H-GBHs exposure perturbed mitochondrial membrane fusion and electron transport in mitochondrial respiratory chains by increasing the mRNA expression of mitofusin-2 (MFN2) and succinate dehydrogenase subunit A (SDHA), causing mitochondrial dysfunction. Dietary supplementation with betaine provided modest protection against GBHs-induced intestinal damage in suckling piglets. These findings reveal the mechanism of GBHs-induced intestinal damage in offspring, improving our understanding of the risk of GBHs exposure in pregnant women and suggesting the potential protective effects of betaine against GBHs poisoning.

RESUMO

In this study, the terahertz (THz) spectra of C3S were obtained in the 0.4-2.3 THz frequency range using different sample preparation methods. In the spectra, a sharp absorption peak of C3S was found at 2.03 THz. Under controlled conditions, the mass ratio of C3S was the most critical factor affecting the strength of the absorption peak, and the absorption coefficient followed the Beer-Lambert law, exhibiting a linear relationship with the mass ratio of C3S. The intrinsic dielectric constants of C3S and polyethylene (PE) were calculated in accordance with the Maxwell-Garnett (MG), Bruggeman (BM), and Landau-Lifshitz-Loovenga (LLL) models, using two-phase composite samples. The results show that the LLL model had the highest accuracy.

RESUMO

The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of serum homocysteine (HCY), procalcitonin (PCT), and C-reactive protein (CRP) in abdominal infectious disease and analyze their relationship with the degree of abdominal infection. We conducted a retrospective study involving 157 patients with abdominal infections at Xuzhou Central Hospital between January 2016 and October 2019. The patients were composed of intestinal obstruction (73 cases), appendicitis (45 cases), perforation of the digestive tract (25 cases), and cholecystitis (14 cases). The HCY, PCT, and CRP levels of patients with abdominal infections were detected using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and correlation analysis between the HCY, PCT, and CRP levels and abdominal infection was performed using Pearson's correlation analysis. Compared with before treatment, the HCY, PCT, and CRP levels in the four groups decreased significantly after treatment. The levels in the patients in the intestinal obstruction group decreased more markedly than in those in the other groups. There were positive correlations among the HCY level, PCT, and CRP before treatment only in patients with intestinal obstruction (P < 0.001). The difference was statistically significant in the HCY level between the non-operation and the operation groups in patients with intestinal obstruction (P < 0.001). Serum HCY may be a valuable marker for predicting aggravation of infection in patients with intestinal obstruction.

RESUMO

Outbreaks of foodborne diseases mediated by food microorganisms and toxins remain one of the leading causes of disease and death worldwide. It not only poses a serious threat to human health and safety but also imposes a huge burden on health care and socioeconomics. Traditional methods for the removal and detection of pathogenic bacteria and toxins in various samples such as food and drinking water have certain limitations, requiring a rapid and sensitive strategy for the enrichment and separation of target analytes. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) exhibit excellent performance in this field due to their fascinating properties. The strategy of combining biorecognition elements with MNPs can be used for fast and efficient enrichment and isolation of pathogens. In this review, we describe new trends and practical applications of magnetic nanoseparation technology in the detection of foodborne microorganisms and toxins. We mainly summarize the biochemical modification and functionalization methods of commonly used magnetic nanomaterial carriers and discuss the application of magnetic separation combined with other instrumental analysis techniques. Combined with various detection techniques, it will increase the efficiency of detection and identification of microorganisms and toxins in rapid assays.

RESUMO

The identity of charge transfer process at the heterogeneous interface plays an important role in improving the stability, activity, and selectivity of heterojunction catalysts. And, in situ irradiation X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) coupled with UV light optical fiber measurement setup is developed to monitor and observe the photoelectron transfer process between heterojunction. However, the in-depth relationship of binding energy and irradiation light wavelength is missing based on the fact that the incident light is formed by coupling light with different wavelengths. Furthermore, a quantitative understanding of the charge transfer numbers and binding energy remains elusive. Herein, based on the g-C3 N4 /SnO2 model catalyst, a wavelength-dependent Boltzmann function to describe the changes of binding energy and wavelength through utilizing a continuously adjustable monochromatic light irradiation XPS technique is established. Using this method, this study further reveals that the electrons transfer number can be readily calculated forming an asymptotic model. This methodology provides a blueprint for deep understanding of the charge-transfer rules in heterojunction and facilitates the future development of highly active advanced catalysts.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising new approach to promote wound healing and its effectiveness has been demonstrated in both clinical and animal studies. Macrophages are the key cells in wound healing and inflammatory response. However, the mechanism of action of PDT on macrophages in promoting wound healing is still unclear. METHODS: In this study, RAW264.7 cells were used. We analyzed the expression levels of macrophage markers arginase 1 (Arg-1), CD206, iNOS, CD86, and inflammatory factors IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1ß by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and Western blot, Milliplex microtubule-associated protein multiplex assay was performed to analyze the expression of inflammatory factors in the supernatant. Live cell Imaging System to observe the dynamic process of macrophage phagocytosis. Western blot was performed to observe the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase/mitogen-activated protein kinase (ERK/MAPK) and NOD-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome. RESULTS: 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-PDT increased the expression of M1 marker iNOS/CD86 and decreased the expression of Arg-1/CD206 in RAW264.7 cells, while, proinflammatory factors IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1ß expression was enhanced and macrophage phagocytosis was increased. We also found that these phenomena were associated with activation of the ERK/MAPK-NLRP3 pathway. CONCLUSION: ALA-PDT promotes early inflammatory responses by regulating macrophage M1 polarization through the ERK/MAPK-NLRP3 pathway. It also promotes macrophage phagocytosis.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Diffusion tensor imaging research on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is limited, and no study has revealed the ACL fibrous microstructure by 7.0-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging. Therefore, we used magnetic resonance imaging to assess the ACL. METHODS: Eight porcine ACLs were investigated by diffusion tensor imaging. Imaging was performed with a 7.0-Tesla scanner using a diffusion-weighted two-dimensional spin-echo echo-planar imaging pulse sequence optimised for muscle. The diffusion tensor eigenparameters, fractional anisotropy (FA), and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) were used for bones and muscles. Three-dimensional projection maps of the principal eigenvectors were plotted to visualise the microstructure. RESULTS: The mean FA and ADC for the ACL were 0.27 ± 0.079 and 0.0012 ± 0.0005, respectively. There were no significant differences between the values in the proximal and distal portions . However, the ADC was smaller in the centre than on the sides (0.0015 ± 0.0007), and the mean FA was larger in the centre than on the sides (0.42 ± 0.23). The ACL fibres were parallel on the proximal and distal sides but interweaved in the centre. CONCLUSIONS: These findings may be beneficial for artificial ligaments.

RESUMO

We present the development of a high-precision sample-position-autocorrection system for photoemission experiments. A binocular vision method based on image pattern matching calculations was realized to track the sample position with an accuracy better than 1 µm, which was much smaller than the spot size of the incident laser. We illustrate the performance of the sample-position-autocorrection system with representative photoemission data on the topological insulator Bi2Se3 and an optimally doped cuprate superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ. Our method provides new possibilities for studying the temperature-dependent electronic structures in quantum materials using laser-based or spatially resolved photoemission systems with high precision and efficiency.
