T-box transcription factor TBX1, targeted by microRNA-6727-5p, inhibits cell growth and enhances cisplatin chemosensitivity of cervical cancer cells through AKT and MAPK pathways

Haixia Liu, Mei Song, Xiaoyan Sun, Xin Zhang, Huayan Miao & Yankui Wang
Cervical cancer (CC) is the fourth most common cancers among women worldwide. T-box transcription factor 1 (TBX1), a member of the T-box family, has anti-tumor effects in some types of cancer, but its role in CC is yet unknown. The aim of this study is to investigate the functions and underlying mechanisms of TBX1 in CC. Online database UALCAN showed that TBX1 was down-regulated in CC tissues compared with normal tissues and patients with lower...

Removal characteristics of heavy metal ions in rainwater runoff by bioretention cell modified with biochar

Jiaqing Xiong, Guohao Li, Junguo Zhu, Jianqiang Li, Yuan Yang, Shengxia An & Chengkui Liu
As a form of pollution source control and a low-impact development measure, bioretention is a convenient, economical, and effective method for the removal of heavy metals from stormwater runoff, which can adapt to the randomness and uncontrollability of non-point source pollution. However, few studies have assessed the performance of bioretention in the simultaneous removal of multiple heavy metals and the impact of heavy metal migration on the bioretention life cycle. In this study, the removal...

Using a WeChat mini-program-based lactation consultant intervention to increase the consumption of mother’s own milk by preterm infants in the neonatal intensive care unit: a study protocol for a cluster randomized controlled trial

Jie Huo, Xinping Wu, Chuanli Gu, Zhangbin Yu, Jun Zhang, Xiaohui Chen, Jingai Zhu, Feng Liu, Beibei Liu, Qianqian Li & Shuping Han
Abstract Background The benefits of mother’s own milk (MOM) for preterm infants have been widely recognized. Many studies have shown that the rate of breastfeeding of premature infants remains very low. Although many studies use measures to promote breastfeeding, few high-quality cluster randomized controlled studies have evaluated the effectiveness of these measures. WeChat is an instant messaging software for smart terminals, and WeChat mini-programs have been widely used to promote health and self-management in China....

Temporal and spatial characteristics of flocculated suspended solids in a deep reservoir: an in situ observation in the Biliuhe Reservoir

Yuyu Liu, Yuqing Feng, Xin Jiang, Shiguo Xu, Lin Zhu & Guoqing Sang
The amount of total suspended solids (TSS) is the most visible indicator for evaluating water quality in reservoirs. Previous investigations paid more attention to TSS of the surface layer in reservoirs, while suspended particles are prone to settle, resuspend, and aggregate at the bottom of reservoir. There may be different patterns of the TSS in different depths. This study is to assess the TSS concentration by weight analysis, find the evidence of the existence of...

Yunhui Hu, Jia Sun, Tongxing Wang, Hairong Wang, Chunlai Zhao, Wenjia Wang, Kaijing Yan, Xijun Yan & He Sun
Previous studies indicate that compound Danshen Dripping Pill (CDDP) improves the adaptation to high-altitude exposure. However, its mechanism of action is not clear. To explore the protective effect of CDDP on hypobaric hypoxia (HH) and its possible mechanism. A meta-analysis of 1051 human volunteers was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of CDDP at high altitudes. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into 5 groups (n = 6): control at normal pressure, model, CDDP-170 mg/kg, CDDP-340 mg/kg...

Yuxin Ran, Dongni Huang, Youwen Mei, Zheng Liu, Yunqian Zhou, Jie He, Hanwen Zhang, Nanlin Yin & Hongbo Qi
Preterm birth (PTB) is an immune-inflammatory disease that needs to be resolved. This study aimed to identify the role of interleukin-27 (IL-27), an immunomodulatory factor, in PTB and its associated mechanisms. Here, we analyzed the high-throughput of samples data from the maternal-fetal interface to the peripheral circulation obtained from public databases and reported that the elevated IL-27 was involved with the onset of PTB. Further bioinformatics analyses (e.g. GeneMANIA and GSEA) revealed that IL-27 overexpression...

The emerging COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection poses severe challenges to global public health. Serum antibody testing is becoming one of the critical methods for the diagnosis of COVID-19 patients. We investigated IgM and IgG responses against SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) and spike (S) protein after symptom onset in the intensive care unit (ICU) and non-ICU patients. 130 blood samples from 38 COVID-19 patients were collected. The levels of IgM and IgG specific to N and...

Lingshan Zhou, Yuan Yang, Min Liu, Yuling Gan, Rong Liu, Man Ren, Ya Zheng, Yuping Wang & Yongning Zhou
Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. Despite rapid advances in systemic therapy, GC remains the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths. We aimed to identify a novel prognostic signature associated with FAT2 mutations in GC. We analyzed the expression levels of FAT2-mutant and FAT2-wildtype GC samples obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The Kaplan–Meier survival curve showed that patients with FAT2 mutations showed better prognosis than those without the...

Human coronavirus NL63 (HCoV-NL63) is primarily associated with common cold in children, elderly and immunocompromised individuals. Outbreaks caused by HCoV-NL63 are rare. Here we report a cluster of HCoV-NL63 cases with severe lower respiratory tract infection that arose in Guangzhou, China, in 2018. Twenty-three hospitalized children were confirmed to be HCoV-NL63 positive, and most of whom were hospitalized with severe pneumonia or acute bronchitis. Whole genomes of HCoV-NL63 were obtained using next-generation sequencing. Phylogenetic and...
