BUB1B (BUB1 Mitotic Checkpoint Serine/Threonine Kinase B) promotes lung adenocarcinoma by interacting with Zinc Finger Protein ZNF143 and regulating glycolysis

Xiaolei Zhou, Yanli Yuan, Hongping Kuang, Bingxiang Tang, Hui Zhang & Manlin Zhang
Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is one of the most common causes of cancer death in men. BUB1B (BUB1 mitotic checkpoint serine/threonine kinase B) has been reported to contribute to the initiation and development of several cancers. Here, we aimed to explore the potential role of BUB1B in LUAD. We found BUB1B was upregulated in LUAD, suggesting its potential role as a biomarker for LUAD diagnosis. Significantly, LUAD patients with high BUB1B expression had a shorter survival...

The remnant Comei igneous province in SE Tibet has been recognized as a product of early Kerguelen mantle plume activity. In this paper, we investigate mafic dykes and sills intruded into Lakang Formation in the southeastern Tethyan Himalaya. Based on new whole-rock geochemical, Sr-Nd-Pb isotopic and SHRIMP zircon U-Pb geochronological data, these rocks can be divided into three groups. Group 1 is composed of OIB-like mafic dykes and sills with lower εNd(t) (+1.78-+2.55) and dated...

Classification and expression analysis of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) callose synthase (CalS) family genes and localization of CsCalS4, a protein involved in pollen development

Hongyun Wang, Shoujun Cao, Tao Li, Lili Zhang, Jiangang Yao, Xiubo Xia & Ruiqing Zhang
Callose plays an important role in plant development and response to multiple biotic and abiotic stresses. Callose synthase (CalS; EC 2.4.1.34), the main enzyme in callose synthesis, has been studied in a number of crops but not in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). In this study, 10 genes encoding putative callose synthase were identified and classified into four clades. Expression levels of the 10 CsCalS genes, which varied considerably, were detected in most analyzed organs. Transcription...

Circular RNA protein tyrosine kinase 2 (circPTK2) promotes colorectal cancer proliferation, migration, invasion and chemoresistance

Zhipeng Jiang, Zehui Hou, Wei Liu, Zhuomin Yu, Zhiqiang Liang & Shuang Chen
The dysregulated circular RNAs (circRNAs) are linked to progression and chemoresistance in colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the role of circRNA protein tyrosine kinase 2 (circPTK2) in CRC progression and chemoresistance is uncertain. The circPTK2, microRNA (miR)-136-5p, m6A ‘reader’ protein YTH domain family protein 1 (YTHDF1), β-catenin and cyclin D1 abundances were examined via quantitative reverse transcription PCR or Western blotting. The progression was investigated by cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8), colony formation, transwell and xenograft analysis....

Rare earth elements in the iron-oxide apatite (IOA) deposit: insights from apatite

Shengchao Yan & Wei Liu
Kiruna-type or IOA deposits are characterized by magnetite-apatite-actinolite associations and may contain considerable amounts of rare earth elements (REEs) that can be exploited as by-products. REEs in the Kiruna-type deposit, heterogeneously distributed, are mainly hosted in phosphates (e.g. apatite). Published data of apatite, together with other evidence, can be used to decipher the source, enrichment mechanism, and post-ore modification of REEs in the Kiruna-type deposits. Sr isotopes and melt inclusions compositions of apatite, together with...

Effect of acute acidic stress on survival and metabolic activity of zooplankton from Lake Biwa, Japan

Huanan Gao, Xin Liu & Syuhei Ban
Acute acidic stress from sources such as acid rain might impact lake ecosystems in many aspects. Because zooplankton are sensitive to environmental change, they could be a good biotic indicator of acidification effects. We investigated survival and metabolic rates of 3 dominant zooplankton taxa in Lake Biwa, the cladoceran Daphnia pulicaria and the copepods Eodiaptomus japonicus and Cyclopoida spp., when subjected to different pH values (pH 4.0–8.0) at low (10 °C) and high (20 °C)...

Acetylation of SCFD1 regulates SNARE complex formation and autophagosome-lysosome fusion

Hong Huang, Qinqin Ouyang, Kunrong Mei, Ting Liu, Qiming Sun, Wei Liu & Rong Liu
SCFD1 (sec1 family domain containing 1) was recently shown to function in autophagosome-lysosome fusion, and multiple studies have demonstrated the regulatory impacts of acetylation (a post-translational modification) on macroautophagy/autophagy. Here, we demonstrate that both acetylation- and phosphorylation-dependent mechanisms control SCFD1ʹs function in autophagosome-lysosome fusion. After detecting a decrease in the extent of SCFD1 acetylation under autophagy-stimulated conditions, we found that KAT2B/PCAF catalyzes the acetylation of residues K126 and K515 of SCFD1; we also showed that...

Guang Lu, Hayden Weng Siong Tan, Tomas Schmauck-Medina, Liming Wang, Jiaqing Chen, Yik-Lam Cho, Kelie Chen, Jing-Zi Zhang, Weifeng He, Yihua Wu, Dajing Xia, Jing Zhou, Evandro F. Fang, Lei Fang, Wei Liu & Han-Ming Shen
The mammalian Atg18 ortholog WIPI2 is a key regulator of LC3 lipidation to promote autophagosome biogenesis during nonselective macroautophagy, while its functions in selective autophagy such as mitophagy remain largely unexplored. In this study, we explored the role of WIPI2 in PINK1-PRKN/parkin-mediated mitophagy. First, we found that WIPI2 is recruited to damaged mitochondria upon mitophagy induction. Second, loss of WIPI2 impedes mitochondrial damaging agents-induced mitophagy. Third, at molecular level, WIPI2 binds to and promotes AAA-ATPase...

Selective autophagic degradation of ACLY (ATP citrate lyase) maintains citrate homeostasis and promotes oocyte maturation

Hainan He, Junling Wang, Xingmei Mou, Xin Liu, Qiao Li, Mingyue Zhong, Bingbing Luo, Zhisheng Yu, Jingjing Zhang, Tian Xu, Chengli Dou, Danya Wu, Wei Qing, Linhui Wu, Kai Zhou, Zhengang Fan, Tingting Wang, Taotao Hu, Xia Zhang, Jilong Zhou & Yi-Liang Miao
Macroautophagy/autophagy is a cellular and energy homeostatic mechanism that contributes to maintain the number of primordial follicles, germ cell survival, and anti-ovarian aging. However, it remains unknown whether autophagy in granulosa cells affects oocyte maturation. Here, we show a clear tendency of reduced autophagy level in human granulosa cells from women of advanced maternal age, implying a potential negative correlation between autophagy levels and oocyte quality. We therefore established a co-culture system and show that...

The impact of circadian rhythms on the immune response to influenza vaccination in middle-aged and older adults (IMPROVE): a randomised controlled trial

Yihao Liu, Hui Zhang, Gang Yuan, Mi Yao, Bin Li, Jianying Chen, Yuling Fan, Ruohui Mo, Fenghua Lai, Xinwen Chen, Mengyuan Li, Binfeng Chen, Janet M. Lord, Sui Peng, KarKeung Cheng & Haipeng Xiao
Abstract Background Vaccination is important in influenza prevention but the immune response wanes with age. The circadian nature of the immune system suggests that adjusting the time of vaccination may provide an opportunity to improve immunogenicity. Our previous cluster trial in Birmingham suggested differences between morning and afternoon vaccination for some strains in the influenza vaccine in older adults. Whether this effect is also seen in a younger age group with less likelihood of compromised...

Treadmill exercise promotes E3 ubiquitin ligase to remove amyloid β and P-tau and improve cognitive ability in APP/PS1 transgenic mice

Longfei Xu, Mingzhe Li, Aili Wei, Miaomiao Yang, Chao Li, Ran Liu, Yuejun Zheng, Yuxin Chen, Zixi Wang, Kun Wang & Tianhui Wang
Abstract Background Moderate physical exercise is conducive to the brains of healthy humans and AD patients. Previous reports have suggested that treadmill exercise plays an anti-AD role and improves cognitive ability by promoting amyloid clearance, inhibiting neuronal apoptosis, reducing oxidative stress level, alleviating brain inflammation, and promoting autophagy–lysosome pathway in AD mice. However, few studies have explored the relationships between the ubiquitin–proteasome system and proper exercise in AD. The current study was intended to investigate...

Pharmacological characterization of the α2A-adrenergic receptor inhibiting rat hippocampal CA3 epileptiform activity: comparison of ligand efficacy and potency

Joseph P. Biggane, Ke Xu, Brianna L. Goldenstein, Kylie L. Davis, Elizabeth J. Luger, Bethany A. Davis, Chris W.D. Jurgens, Dianne M. Perez, James E. Porter & Van A. Doze
The mechanism underlying the antiepileptic actions of norepinephrine (NE) is unclear with conflicting results. Our objectives are to conclusively delineate the specific adrenergic receptor (AR) involved in attenuating hippocampal CA3 epileptiform activity and assess compounds for lead drug development. We utilized the picrotoxin model of seizure generation in rat brain slices using electrophysiological recordings. Epinephrine (EPI) reduced epileptiform burst frequency in a concentration-dependent manner. To identify the specific receptor involved in this response, the equilibrium...
