RESUMO

Cellular senescence is terminal cell cycle arrest that represents a prominent response to numerous anticancer therapies. The oncogene inhibitor of apoptosis-stimulating protein of p53 (iASPP) plays essential roles in regulating cellular drug response by inhibiting apoptosis. However, whether or not it regulates chemotherapy-induced senescence (TIS) in cancer cells remains unclear. Here, using two commonly used cancer cell lines, HCT 116 and MCF-7, along with xenograft mice model, we found that iASPP inhibits senescence and also influences the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP), which confers anticancer drug resistance independently of apoptosis. Mechanistically, iASPP is transcriptionally elevated by the p65 subunit of NF-κB in senescent cells and then translocates to the nucleus, where it binds p53 and NF-κBp65. This binding inhibits their transcriptional activities toward p21 and the key SASP factors interleukin-6 (IL-6) / IL-8, respectively, and subsequently prevents senescence. Of note, we observed that iASPP knockdown sensitizes apoptosis-resistant cancers to doxorubicin treatment by promoting senescence both in vitro and in vivo. We conclude that iASPP integrates the NF-κBp65 and p53 signaling pathways and thereby regulates cell fate in response to TIS, leading to chemotherapy resistance. These findings suggest that iASPP inhibition might be a strategy that could help restore senescence in cancer cells and improve outcomes of chemotherapy-based therapies.

RESUMO

A composite flocculant P(AM-DMDAAC) was synthesized by the copolymerization of acrylamide (AM) and dimethyl diallyl ammonium chloride (DMDAAC). By using microwave (MV) assistance with ammonium persulfate as initiator, the synthesis had a short reaction time and yielded a product with good solubility. Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and differential thermal analysis-thermogravimetric analysis were employed to determine the structure and morphology of P(AM-DMDAAC). The parameters affecting the intrinsic viscosity of P(AM-DMDAAC), such as MV time, mass ratio of DMDAAC to AM, bath time, reaction temperature, pH value, and the dosages of ammonium persulfate initiator, EDTA, sodium benzoate, and urea were examined. Results showed that the optimum synthesis conditions were MV time of 1.5 min, m(DMDAAC):m(AM) of 4:16, 0.5 wt‱ initiator, 0.4 wt‱ EDTA, 0.3 wt‱ sodium benzoate, 2 wt‱ urea, 4 h bath time, reaction temperature of 40 °C, and pH of 2. The optimal dimethyl phthalate (DMP) removal rate can reach 96.9% by using P(AM-DMDAAC), and the P(AM-DMDAAC) had better flocculation than PAM, PAC, and PFS.

RESUMO

Cytophaga hutchinsonii cells can bind to the surface of insoluble cellulose and degrade it utilizing a novel cell-contact dependent mechanism, in which the outer membrane proteins may play important roles. In this study, the deletion of a gene locus chu_1165, which encodes a hypothetical protein with a 32% identity with TlpB, a disulfide oxidoreductase in Flavobacterium psychrophilum, caused a complete cellulolytic defect in C. hutchinsonii Further study showed that the cells of Δ1165 could not bind to cellulose and many outer membrane proteins that can bind to cellulose were significantly decreased. The N-terminal region of CHU_1165 is anchored to the cytoplasmic membrane with five predicted transmembrane helices, and the C-terminal region is predicted to stretch to the periplasm and has a similar Trx-fold containing a Cys-X-X-Cys motif which is conserved in disulfide oxidoreductases. Recombinant CHU_1165His containing the Cys-X-X-Cys motif was able to reduce the disulfide bonds of insulin in vitro Site directed mutation showed that the cysteines in the Cys-X-X-Cys motif and at residues 106, 108 were indispensable for the function of CHU_1165. Western blot showed that CHU_1165 was in an oxidized state in vivo, suggesting that it may act as an oxidase to catalyze disulfide bond formation. However, many of the decreased outer membrane proteins that were essential for cellulose degradation contained no or one cysteine and the mutation of the cysteine in them did not affect cellulose degradation, indicating that CHU_1165 may have an indirect or pleiotropic effect on the function of these outer membrane proteins.IMPORTANCE Cytophaga hutchinsonii could rapidly digest cellulose in a contact-dependent manner, in which the outer membrane proteins may play important roles. In this study, a hypothetical protein, CHU_1165, characterized as a disulfide oxidoreductase, is essential for cellulose degradation through affecting the cellulose binding ability of many outer membrane proteins in C. hutchinsonii Disulfide oxidoreductases are involved in disulfide bond formation. However, our studies showed that many of the decreased outer membrane proteins that were essential for cellulose degradation contained no or one cysteine, and the mutation of cysteine did not affect their function, indicating that CHU_1165 did not facilitate these proteins in the formation of a disulfide bond. It may have an indirect or pleiotropic effect on the function of these outer membrane proteins. Our study provides an orientation for exploring the proteins that assist the appropriate conformation of many outer membrane proteins essential for cellulose degradation, which is important for exploring the novel mechanism of cellulose degradation in C. hutchinsonii.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Endometriosis (EMS) is a benign disease that is related to estrogen, immune disorders and inflammation. The purpose of this research was to determine the expression of CD200 in EMS and to clarify its role in the pathogenesis of the disease. METHODS: The levels of serum CD200 in patients with and without EMS were determined by ELISA. Furthermore, the expression of CD200 in normal eutopic endometrium and ectopic endometrium was detected by immunohistochemistry and western blotting. The CD200 receptor (CD200R) in macrophages in peritoneal fluid (pMØ) obtained from controls and patients with EMS was examined by western blotting. CD200 expression in human endometrial stromal cells (HESCs) stimulated with 17ß-estradiol (E2) was measured by western blotting. Furthermore, macrophages were stimulated with different concentrations of CD200 and the effect on phagocytosis was analyzed. RESULTS: The plasma CD200 levels of patients with EMS was significantly increased compared with controls (P = 0.0173, 95%CI [18.75, 159.6]). Compared with normal eutopic endometrium, the expression of CD200 was significantly increased in ectopic endometrial tissues. The CD200R expression in pMØ obtained from patients with EMS was increased compared with the controls (P = 0.0244). CD200 expression in HESCs stimulated with E2 was up-regulated. As the levels of CD200 increased, macrophage phagocytosis in vitro gradually decreased. CONCLUSIONS: CD200 is an estrogen-induced molecule that impairs macrophage phagocytosis and may contribute to the immune escape of ectopic lesions in EMS.

RESUMO

Accumulation of ß-amyloid (Aß) in the brain has been implicated in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Aß is produced from the Aß precursor protein (APP) through the amyloidogenic pathway by ß-, and γ-secretase. Alternatively, APP can be cleaved by α-, and γ-secretase, precluding the production of Aß. Thus, stimulating α-secretase mediated APP processing is considered a therapeutic option not only for decreasing Aß production but for increasing neuroprotective sAPPα. We have previously reported that 7-deoxy-trans-dihydronarciclasine (E144), the active component of Lycoris chejuensis, decreases Aß production by attenuating APP level, and retarding APP maturation. It can also improve cognitive function in the AD model mouse. In this study, we further analyzed the activating effect of E144 on α-secretase. Treatment of E144 increased sAPPα, but decreased ß-secretase products from HeLa cells stably transfected with APP. E144 directly activated ADAM10 and ADAM17 in a substrate-specific manner both in cell-based and in cell-free assays. The Lineweaver-Burk plot analysis revealed that E144 enhanced the affinities of A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinases (ADAMs) towards the substrate. Consistent with this result, immunoprecipitation analysis showed that interactions of APP with ADAM10 and ADAM17 were increased by E144. Our results indicate that E144 might be a novel agent for AD treatment as a substrate-specific activator of α-secretase.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Low-grade malignant fibrous myxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a malignant tumor that originates from soft tissues and has specific clinical and histopathological characteristics. Paravertebral LGFMS is rarely reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 60-year-old woman had pain in the lower back and right anterior thigh for more than 3 years. DIAGNOSIS: Paravertebral LGFMS. INTERVENTIONS: Tumor resection, vertebral canal decompression and pedicle screw fixation. OUTCOMES: The tumor was excised, and the vertebral arch was fixed with pedicle screws at the root. Chemoradiotherapy was not performed. Her postoperative visual analogue scale (VAS) score decreased from 7 points at admission to 2 points at follow-up. The patient was discharged at postoperative day 13, and no recurrence was observed at the 6-month follow-up. LESSONS: Although LGFMS is rare, it should be considered in differential diagnosis of other soft tissue tumors to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment.

RESUMO

Supramolecular transformations are ubiquitous in natural systems, which inspire scientists to construct artificial mimics with emerging functions and applications. However, the complexity of supramolecular systems presents a major challenge to the efficient, real-time tracking of their transformation processes. Herein, we describe the trackable supramolecular transformation of a two-component molecular cage to a three-component cage through supramolecular fusion with another two-component molecular square. The use of tetraphenylethene (TPE), a chromophore with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) character, as a component for the molecular cages enables facile fluorescence monitoring of the transformation process: while both cages exhibit fluorescence emission via the restriction of intramolecular motion of the TPE motif, the interactions between TPE and 4,4'-bipyridine introduced in the supramolecular fusion process result in partial fluorescence quenching and shifts in the emission maximum. This study provides a simple and efficient approach towards complex supramolecular cages with emergent functions, and demonstrates that AIE features could provide unique opportunities for the characterization of complex, dynamic supramolecular transformation processes.

RESUMO

The nutritional value of mutton chop rolls is gradually recognized by people, but it is easy to cause microbial contamination during storage, leading to spoilage and shortening of storage time. The bacterial diversity of mutton chop rolls in different cold preservation time was analyzed to explore the main pathogens of spoilage of mutton chop rolls. At the same time, the oxidative state of myoglobin and the change of mitochondrial Metmyoglobin (MMb) Reduction Ability (MRA) in different cold preservation were studied. It lays a foundation for further study on the mechanism of meat color stabilization of mutton chop rolls during cold preservation. A total of 10,123,180 effective Tags were obtained from three samples with different cold preservation time by high throughput sequencing. The relative abundance of Pseudomonas was the highest in the samples refrigerated for 8 days, Acinetobacter, Brochothrix and Lactobacillales showed the highest relative abundance in the samples refrigerated for 4 days, which were closely related to the deterioration of mutton chop rolls and color deterioration. With the increase of cold preservation time, Oxymyoglobin (OMb) content decreased and Metmyoglobin (MMb) content increased. MRA was negatively correlated with MMb. The content of NADH was extremely significant difference with OMb and MMb. At the same time, the content of NADH was a significant difference with MRA. This study provides theoretical basis for prolonging the shelf life, maintaining meat color stability, improving the quality of mutton chop rolls. And it also plays a certain role in promoting the production and consumption of chilled meat.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Accumulated evidence suggests that ATP-binding cassette A1 transporter (ABCA1) contributes to secreting insulin in pancreatic ß-cells and amyloid beta formation. This study aimed to investigate the association between three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of ABCA1 and susceptibility to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a Han Chinese population. METHODS: A total of 996 T2DM patients and 1,002 controls were included in the study. Three SNPs in the ABCA1 gene, i.e., rs2230806 (R219K), rs1800977 (C69T), and rs9282541 (R230C), were genotyped by SNaPshot. A genotype model, an allele model, a dominant model, and a recessive model were used to assess susceptibility to T2DM. RESULTS: There were significant associations between rs1800977 and T2DM in different genetic models (TT vs. CC, OR = 0.591 [0.446-0.793], p < 0.001; T vs. C, OR = 0.835 [0.735-0.949], p = 0.006; recessive model, OR = 0.583 [0.449-0.756], p < 0.001). There were also significant associations between rs9282541 and T2DM in different genetic models (CT vs. CC, OR = 1.690 [0.807-1.005], p = 0.048; T vs. C, OR = 1.756 [0.694-1.060], p = 0.029; dominant model, OR = 1.735 [0.715-1.034], p = 0.037). CONCLUSION: Our case-control study showed that the two SNPs rs1800977 and rs9282541 in the ABCA1 gene are significantly associated with susceptibility to T2DM in our Han Chinese population. Study of further mechanisms should be performed before application to clinical therapy.

RESUMO

The similarity of spatial structure between radicicol and matrine urged us to perform conformation modification of matrine, followed by L-shaped matrine derivatives, 6, 12, 21a-h and 22a-h were originally designed, synthesized and evaluated for Hsp90N inhibitors as anticancer agents. TSA (Thermal Shift Assay) results indicated that 21e, 22a-c and 22e-g exhibited strong binding force against Hsp90N with∣ΔTm∣ > 3, meanwhile, MTT assay also revealed these compounds displayed potent anticancer activity with IC50 values below 25 µM against HepG2, HeLa and MDA-MB-231 cells lines. Then, compound 22g with a high ΔTm = 10.92 was chosen as a representative to perform further mechanism study. It can induce cell apoptosis, arrest the cell cycle at the S phase and decrease the expression level of Hsp90 in Hela cell. These results originally provided targeted modification strategy for matrine derivatives to serve as Hsp90 inhibitors for cancer therapy.

RESUMO

Takeda-G-protein-receptor-5 (TGR5) is a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) activated by bile acids, and mortalin is a multipotent chaperone of the HSP70 family. In the present study, TGR5 was detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ECC) specimens, and TGR5 expression in ECC tissues and adjacent tissues was compared. In vitro TGR5 was overexpressed and knocked down in human intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) cell line RBE and human extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ECC) cell line QBC-939 to observe its effects on the biological behavior of cholangiocarcinoma (CC) cells, including proliferation, apoptosis and migration. In vivo xenograft model was constructed to explore the role of TGR5 in CC growth. Proteins that interacted with TGR5 were screened using an immunoprecipitation spectrometry approach, and the identified protein was down-regulated to investigate its contribution to CC growth. The present study demonstrated that TGR5 is highly expressed in CC tissues, and strong TGR5 expression may indicate high malignancy in CC. Furthermore, TGR5 promotes CC cell proliferation, migration, and apoptosis resistance. TGR5 boosts CC growth in vivo. In addition, TGR5 combines with mortalin and regulates mortalin expression in the CC cell line. Mortalin participates in the TGR5-induced increase in CC cell proliferation. In conclusion, TGR5 is of clinical significance based on its implications for the degree of malignancy in patients with CC. Mortalin may be a downstream component regulated by TGR5, and TGR5 promotes cholangiocarcinoma at least partially by interacting with mortalin and upregulating its expression. Both TGR5 and mortalin are positive regulators, and may serve as potential therapeutic targets for CC.

RESUMO

Studies have shown that 8-epidiosbulbin E acetate (EEA), a major diterpenoid lactone in the tuber of Dioscorea bulbifera, can induce hepatotoxicity in vivo. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unknown. Using the integrated transcriptomic and metabolomics method, in this study we investigated the global effect of EEA exposure on the transcriptomic and metabolomic profiles in mice. The abundance of 7131 genes and 42 metabolites in the liver, as well as 43 metabolites in the serum were altered. It should be noted that EEA mainly damaged hepatic cells through the aberrant regulation of multiple systems primarily including bile acid metabolism, and taurine and hypotaurine metabolism. In addition, an imbalance of bile acid metabolism was found to play a key pat in response to EEA-triggered hepatotoxicity. In summary, these findings contributed to understanding the underlying mechanisms of EEA hepatotoxicity.

RESUMO

Nanomaterial-based flexible strain sensors have developed rapidly in recent years. Here, we propose a flexible strain sensor based on polydimethylsiloxane with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene quantum dots (GQDs). Different weight ratios of CNTs and GQDs were used as the sensitive units of the strain sensors. After analyzing the results of current-voltage curves and the strain effects of the sensors, we concluded that the introduction of GQDs played an important role in improving the sensitivity of the sensors. The gauge factor of the as-prepared strain sensors ranges from 0 to 841.42.

RESUMO

Recent demands in clinical applications drive a large amount of research to plasma sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) composite coatings. Herein, graphene nanosheet (GNS) reinforced HA coating was fabricated using plasma spray, the effect of heat and hydrothermal treatments (hereafter referred to as thermal treatment) on microstructural evolution and mechanical properties of the composite coating were investigated. Thermally treated GNS/HA coating not only exhibited ~47.1% improvement in HA crystallinity and more denser microstructure, but also displayed increased surface roughness (3 times of that of the as-sprayed sample) due to the fact that GNSs facilitated HA nanoparticle precipitation on the coating surface. Fracture toughness of the as-sprayed HA coating increased by up to ~44.1% at 2.0 wt% GNSs owing to GNS pullout, GNS bridging and arresting of crack propagation by the embedded GNSs. As for thermally treated HA coatings, crack propagation arrested by the sintered regions was found to act as an important toughening mechanism, but thermal treatment introduced more structural defects into the GNSs and led to the reductions in their length and thickness, resulting in negligible enhancement in toughness of the GNS/HA coating.

RESUMO

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder, the etiology of which is complex and unclear. Metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) is a conserved long non-coding RNA which has been found to play a role in the pathophysiological process of reproductive system diseases, such as endometriosis and pregnancy loss. However, the role of MALAT1 in PCOS is still unknown. In this study, reduced MALAT1 expression was found in granulosa cells (GCs) from 68 patients with PCOS and 30 healthy controls, which relates to upregulated cell proliferation and downregulated apoptosis. Using phosphorylation pathway profiling array, MALAT1 reduction was identified to contribute to the repression of transforming growth factor beta (TGFß) signaling in GCs. Subsequently, MALAT1 was confirmed to function as a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA), interacting with miR-125b and miR-203a. Meanwhile, miR-125b and miR-203a was identified as two novel TGFß signaling negative regulators by targeting TGFBR1 and TGFBR2. Finally, MALAT1 knockdown was found to induce the upregulation of miR-125b and miR-203a, which further repressed TGFß signaling, changed some downstream gene expression, and resulted in a disordered cell cycle. In conclusion, MALAT1 reduction was identified in GCs, which may contribute to the pathophysiological processes of PCOS by regulating TGFß signaling through sponging miR-125b and miR-203a.

RESUMO

Precipitation is known to have legacy effects on plant diversity and production of many terrestrial ecosystems. Precipitation regimes are expected to become more variable with increasing extreme precipitation events. However, how previous-year precipitation regimes affect the current-year aboveground biomass (AGB) remains largely unknown. Here we measured long-term (2004-2017) AGB in a semi-arid grassland of the Chinese Loess Plateau to evaluate the impact of previous-year precipitation amount on current-year AGB. Furthermore, to assess the response of current-year AGB to previous-year precipitation regimes, we conducted a field manipulation experiment that included three precipitation regimes during 2014-2017: (i) ambient precipitation, (ii) monthly added four 5 mm rain events, and (iii) monthly added one 20 mm event. Both the long-term (2004-2017) observations under ambient precipitation and short-term (2014-2017) measurements under manipulative treatments showed significant positive effects of previous-year precipitation on current-year AGB. Our path analysis suggested that previous-year precipitation frequency had negative effects on the current-year density and mean height of grass (Leymus secalinus) while had positive effects on forb (Artemisia capillaris). The forb had much smaller height and AGB (65% and 53% less, respectively) than the grass. Consequently, the AGB reduced in the weekly small events treatment, causing the sensitivity of AGB to precipitation to decrease. Therefore, our findings indicated that the impacts of precipitation regimes on plant community dynamics should be taken into consideration while assessing the precipitation legacy effect on ecosystem production.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Aneurysm formation can cause life-threatening complications in Takayasu's arteritis (TAK). The objective of this study was to evaluate the demographic, clinical and angiographic features, and outcomes of aneurysm secondary to TAK in Chinese patients. METHODS: The medical charts of patients diagnosed with TAK in Changhai Hospital between 2001 and 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: Aneurysms were identified in 66 (16.6%) of 397 patients with TAK. The mean age at onset was 30.4±11.5 years, with a male:female ratio of 1:2.7. Patients with aneurysm had a higher proportion of male (p<0.01), higher incidences of bruit, chest tightness and aortic regurgitation (all p<0.001), and a lower incidence of visual disturbances (p<0.01) as compared with patients without aneurysm. The prevalence of elevated ESR and CRP and ITAS2010 score were higher in patients with than without aneurysm (all p<0.01). Angiographic classification showed that type V (30.3%) was the most frequent pattern in patients with aneurysm though Type I was dominant in patients without aneurysm. Multiple aneurysms were found in 30.3% of patients and the most common site of aneurysms was abdominal aorta (22.1%). Glucocorticoids were prescribed in 86.4% of patients with aneurysm, and surgical procedures were performed in 80.3%. Five of 52 patients died during the median 3-year follow-up period. CONCLUSIONS: These findings could provide useful information on the demographical, clinical and angiographic features of TAK patients with aneurysm. Aneurysm formation in TAK may be associated with male gender and active vascular inflammation.

RESUMO

The surface stress-based biosensor has been applied in fast and sensitive identification of Escherichia coli (E. coli)with significance for public health, food, and water safety. However, the stable sensitive element of flexible biosensor based on surface stress is still crucial and challengeable. Here, the authors reported surface stress-induced biosensors based on double-layer stable gold nanostructures (D-AuNS-SSMB) for E. coli O157:H7 detection. Bacterial detection demonstrates the high stability of the biosensor. The resistance change of biosensor is linear to the logarithmic value of the E. coli O157:H7 concentrations ranging from 103 to 107 CFU/mL with a limit of detection (LOD) of 43 CFU/mL. The captured signals of D-AuNS-SSMB comes from surface stress generated by antigen-antibody binding. In addition, the biosensor exhibits good stability, reproducibility and specificity in detection of E. coli O157:H7 as well. This study provides a new preparation method of stable sensitive element for the E. coli detection.
