Data from: Specificity and strain-typing capabilities of Nanorod Array-Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy for Mycoplasma pneumoniae detection

Kelley C. Henderson, Alvaro J. Benitez, Amy E. Ratliff, Donna M. Crabb, Edward S. Sheppard, Jonas M. Winchell, Richard A. Dluhy, Ken B. Waites, T. Prescott Atkinson & Duncan C. Krause
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a cell wall-less bacterial pathogen of the human respiratory tract that accounts for > 20% of all community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). At present the most effective means for detection and strain-typing is quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), which can exhibit excellent sensitivity and specificity but requires separate tests for detection and genotyping, lacks standardization between available tests and between labs, and has limited practicality for widespread, point-of-care use. We have developed and previously...

Data from: Quantifying hummingbird preference for floral trait combinations: the role of selection on trait interactions in the evolution of pollination syndromes

Charles B. Fenster, Richard J. Reynolds, Christopher W. Williams, Robert Makowsky & Michele R. Dudash
Darwin recognized the flower's importance for the study of adaptation and emphasized that the flower's functionality reflects the coordinated action of multiple traits. Here we use a multi-trait manipulative approach to quantify the potential role of selection acting on floral trait combinations underlying the divergence and maintenance of three related North American species of Silene (Caryophyllaceae). We artificially generated 48 plant phenotypes corresponding to all combinations of key attractive traits differing among the three Silene...

Data from: Combining niche-shift and population genetic analyses predicts rapid phenotypic evolution during invasion

Erik E. Sotka, Aaron W. Baumgardner, Paige M. Bippus, Claude Destombe, Elizabeth A. Duermit, Hikaru Endo, Ben A. Flanagan, Mits Kamiya, Lauren E. Lees, Courtney J. Murren, Masahiro Nakaoka, Sarah J. Shainker, Allan E. Strand, Ryuta Terada, Myriam Valero, Florian Weinberger, Stacy A. Krueger-Hadfield & Christophe Destombe
Rapid evolution of non-native species can facilitate invasion success, but recent reviews indicate that such microevolution rarely yields expansion of the climatic niche in the introduced habitats. However, because some invasions originate from a geographically restricted portion of the native species range and its climatic niche, it is possible that the frequency, direction and magnitude of phenotypic evolution during invasion has been underestimated. We explored the utility of niche-shift analyses in the red seaweed Gracilaria...

Boosting cisplatin chemotherapy by nanomotor-enhanced tumor penetration and DNA adducts formation

Lihua Xu, Kaixiang Zhang, Xing Ma, Yingying Li, Yajie Jin, Chenglin Liang, Yong Wang, Wendi Duan, Hongling Zhang, Zhenzhong Zhang, Jinjin Shi, Junjie Liu, Yunlong Wang & Wentao Li
Abstract Despite many nano-based strategies devoted to delivering cisplatin for tumor therapy, its clinical benefits are compromised by poor tissue penetration and limited DNA adducts formation of the drug. Herein, a cisplatin loading nanomotor based janus structured Ag-polymer is developed for cisplatin delivery of deeper tissue and increased DNA adducts formation. The nanomotor displayed a self‐propelled tumor penetration fueled by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in tumor tissues, which is catalytically decomposed into a large amount of...

Double exceptional points in grating coupled Metal-Insulator-Metal heterostructure

Jianming Mai, Yu Chen, Guixin Li & Kok Cheah
In this work we theoretically study the exceptional points and reflection spectra characteristics of a grating coupled metal-insulator-metal heterostructure, which is a non-Hermitian system. Our results show that by selecting suitable geometrical parameters with grating periodicity @150 nm, that satisfy zero reflection condition, double exceptional points appear in a mode bifurcation regime. Furthermore, the thickness of partition metal layer between two cavities plays an important role in controlling the reflection properties of the heterostructure. There...

Diagnostic and prognostic value of ventilatory power in pulmonary hypertension

Xin Li, Yi Zhang, Qi Jin, Zhihui Zhao, Qing Zhao, Lu Yan, Anqi Duan, Zhihua Huang, Meixi Hu, Changming Xiong, Qin Luo & Zhihong Liu
Abstract Background Ventilatory power is a novel index which could reflect both ventilation efficiency and peripheral blood flow. However, its clinical value in pulmonary hypertension (PH) is rarely discussed. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the diagnostic and prognostic value of ventilatory power as well as its association with disease severity in PH. Methods Consecutive patients with normal hemodynamics and patients diagnosed with PH between September, 2012 and December, 2020 in Fuwai hospital...

IL-27 overexpression alleviates inflammatory response in allergic asthma by inhibiting Th9 differentiation and regulating Th1/Th2 balance

Peng Xiong, Tonglin Liu, Hao Huang, Yi Yuan, Wendi Zhang, Lina Fu & Yu Chen
To investigate the effect of IL-27 on Th9 differentiation and Th1/Th2 balance. C57BL/6 (B6) mice were treated with ovalbumin to establish an allergic asthma (AA) model and subjected to IL-27 overexpression (OV) and empty vector (EV). Hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining was performed to observe lung tissue inflammation. Flow cytometry was carried out to evaluate the percentage of Th9, Th1, and Th2 cells. The expression of IL-27, IL-27R, IL-9, T-bet, IFN-γ, and IgE was evaluated by quantitative...

Development of a multicellular in vitro model of the meningeal blood-CSF barrier to study Neisseria meningitidis infection

Leo M. Endres, Marvin Jungblut, Mustafa Divyapicigil, Markus Sauer, Christian Stigloher, Myron Christodoulides, Brandon J. Kim & Alexandra Schubert-Unkmeir
Abstract Background Bacterial meningitis is a life-threatening disease that occurs when pathogens such as Neisseria meningitidis cross the meningeal blood cerebrospinal fluid barrier (mBCSFB) and infect the meninges. Due to the human-specific nature of N. meningitidis, previous research investigating this complex host–pathogen interaction has mostly been done in vitro using immortalized brain endothelial cells (BECs) alone, which often do not retain relevant barrier properties in culture. Here, we developed physiologically relevant mBCSFB models using BECs...

An Optimal Hybrid Approach to Calculate Conditional Power

Jian Zhu, Xin Li & Yi Liu
When used in clinical trial adaptive designs, conditional power (CP) is most commonly calculated assuming the current trend, but this approach has been criticized for substantially deviating from the actual CP due to “double-dipping” the interim data (i.e., using the interim data as part of the final analysis test statistic and as the assumption for the remainder of the trial). By contrast, CP assuming the design assumption preserves the shape of the CP curve by...

In vitro study on the effect of peucedanol on the activity of cytochrome P450 enzymes

Cun Zhang, Yongwei Li, Changlong Yin, Jie Zheng & Guozhi Liu
Peucedanol is a major extract of Peucedanum japonicum Thunb. (Apiaceae) roots, which is a commonly used herb in paediatrics. Its interaction with cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP450s) would lead to adverse effects or even failure of therapy. The interaction between peucedanol and CYP450s was investigated. Peucedanol (0, 2.5, 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100 μM) was incubated with eight human liver CYP isoforms (CYP1A2, 2A6, 3A4, 2C8, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, and 2E1), in pooled human liver...
