Considering lightness: how the lightness of app icon backgrounds affects consumers’ download intention through risk perception

Ming Chen, Shih-Heng Yu & Yu Gao
The number of mobile apps has rapidly increased in recent years, but the distribution of app downloads is uneven. As the first and only visual image of apps before downloading, app icons are vital tools through which app publishers promote their apps. Thus, identifying the elements of app icons that can increase consumers’ download intention is crucial. This research examines how the distribution of the lightness of yellow colour in app icon backgrounds influences consumers’...

Long non-coding RNA RP11-283G6.5 confines breast cancer development through modulating miR-188-3p/TMED3/Wnt/β-catenin signalling

Jing Pei, Shengquan Zhang, Xiaowei Yang, Chunguang Han, Yubo Pan, Jun Li, Zhaorui Wang, Chenyu Sun & Jing Zhang
The contributions of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) to breast cancer are critical areas of investigation. In this study, we identified a novel lncRNA RP11-283G6.5 which was lowly expressed in breast cancer and whose low expression was correlated with poor overall survival and disease-free survival of breast cancer patients. Functional experiments revealed that ectopic expression of RP11-283G6.5 confined breast cancer cellular growth, migration, and invasion, and promoted cellular apoptosis. Conversely, RP11-283G6.5 silencing facilitated...

Structural insights into dpCoA-RNA decapping by NudC

Wei Zhou, Zeyuan Guan, Fen Zhao, Yage Ye, Fang Yang, Ping Yin & Delin Zhang
Various kinds of cap structures, such as m7G, triphosphate groups, NAD and dpCoA, protect the 5′ terminus of RNA. The cap structures bond covalently to RNA and affect its stability, translation, and transport. The removal of the caps is mainly executed by Nudix hydrolase family proteins, including Dcp2, RppH and NudC. Numerous efforts have been made to elucidate the mechanism underlying the removal of m7G, triphosphate group, and NAD caps. In contrast, few studies related...

The abortion tissues including villi and decidua were collected. The expression of HMGB1, CD45, CK7,...

Synergy of alanine and gentamicin to reduce nitric oxide for elevating killing efficacy to antibiotic-resistant Vibrio alginolyticus

Su-fang Kuang, Yue-tao Chen, Jia-jie Chen, Xuan-xian Peng, Zhuang-gui Chen & Hui Li
The present study explored the cooperative effect of both alanine (Ala) and gentamicin (Gent) on metabolic mechanisms by which exogenous Ala potentiates Gent to kill antibiotic-resistant Vibrio alginolyticus. To test this, GC-MS-based metabolomics was used to characterize Ala-, Gent- and both-induced metabolic profiles, identifying nitric oxide (NO) production pathway as the most key clue to understand metabolic mechanisms. Gent, Ala and both led to low, lower and lowest activity of total nitric oxide synthase (tNOS)...

Comprehensive Analysis of Monocarboxylate Transporter 4 (MCT4) expression in breast cancer prognosis and immune infiltration via integrated bioinformatics analysis

Chen Yuan, Jie Zhang, Jianjuan Lou, Siqi Wang, Yanni Jiang, Feiyun Wu & Shouju Wang
Lactate blunts the anticancer immune response in breast cancer (BC). However, little is known about the exact effect of lactate transporters such as monocarboxylate transporter 4 (MCT4) on immunotherapy. In this study, we investigated the expression status and prognostic value of MCT4 in BC through large-scale transcriptome data. Our results showed that MCT4 was overexpressed in BC, particularly in the basal-like molecular subtype. Overexpression of MCT4 was significantly correlated with high BC lesion grade and...

A new C19-diterpenoid alkaloid named gyalanutine A (1) and fourteen known compounds 2-15 were isolated from the plant of Delphinium gyalanum C. Marquand & Airy Shaw. Compound 1 displayed an unusual lycoctonine-type C19-diterpenoid alkaloid skeleton with the cleavage of N-C19 and C7-C17 bonds, and the construction of the N-C7 bond. Structures were identified by multiple spectroscopic analyses including 1 D, 2 D NMR, IR and HR-ESI-MS. Compounds were tested for acetylcholinesterase inhibitory and anti-inflammatory activity.

SUVA: splicing site usage variation analysis from RNA-seq data reveals highly conserved complex splicing biomarkers in liver cancer

Chao Cheng, Lei Liu, Yongli Bao, Jingwen Yi, Weili Quan, Yaqiang Xue, Luguo Sun & Yi Zhang
Most of the current alternative splicing (AS) analysis tools are powerless to analyse complex splicing. To address this, we developed SUVA (Splice sites Usage Variation Analysis) that decomposes complex splicing events into five types of splice junction pairs. By analysing real and simulated data, SUVA showed higher sensitivity and accuracy in detecting AS events than the compared methods. Notably, SUVA detected extensive complex AS events and screened out 69 highly conserved and dominant AS events...

Numerous studies have reported the regulatory effects of miR-21-5p and reversine in human breast cancer (HBC). However, the mechanism of reversine and miR-21-5p has not been fully investigated in HBC. The aim of the current study was to assess the mechanism of action of reversine, with or without miR-21-5p, in HBC progression. Reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) and Western blot results confirmed the upregulation of miR-21-5p and downregulation of sprouty RTK signaling antagonist 2...

Jinpeng Li, Qingying Fan, Manyu Jin, Chenlong Mao, Hui Zhang, Xiaoling Zhang, Liyun Sun, Daniel Grenier, Li Yi, Xiaogai Hou & Yang Wang
Streptococcus suis (S. suis), more specifically serotype 2, is a bacterial pathogen that threatens the lives of pigs and humans. Like many other pathogens, S. suis exhibits quorum sensing (QS) system-controlled virulence factors, such as biofilm formation that complicates treatment. Therefore, impairing the QS involving LuxS/AI-2 cycle in S. suis, may be a promising alternative strategy for overcoming S. suis infections. In this study, we investigated paeoniflorin (PF), a monoterpenoid glycoside compound extracted from peony,...

Mingwang Long, Yue Pan, Junying Chen, Fan Jia, Han Wang, Daiying Li, Kai feng, Lingmei Yan, Xiaodan Wang, Xuelei Ning, Lijuan Qiu, Juan Zhang & Qiangming Sun
Dengue virus infection mainly causes dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and/or dengue shock syndrome (DSS). However, ADE (antibody-dependent enhancement) is one of the main pathogenic factors, and its pathogenic mechanism has not been fully elucidated. Recently, with the development of high-throughput sequencing, an increased number of RNAs have been confirmed to play a vital regulatory role in the process of virus infection. However, there is a lack of research on dengue virus infection and ADE. In...

Yue Liu, Weiming Lou, Guang Chen, Bing Ding, Jin Kuang, Yize Zhang, Cong Wang, Sainan Duan, Ying Deng & Xiongbing Lu
Bladder cancer is one of the most severe genitourinary cancers, causing high morbidity worldwide. However, the underlying molecular mechanism is not clear, and it is urgent to find target genes for treatment. G-protein-coupled receptors are currently a target of high interest for drug design. Thus, we aimed to identify a target gene-related to G-protein-coupled receptors for therapy. We used The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and DepMap databases to obtain the expression and clinical data of...

Methods: The baseline survey was conducted from 10 to 25 February 2020 in patients with COVID-19 in a designated hospital. Demographic and clinical characteristics were acquired, and...

A single mutation attenuates both the transcription termination and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity of T7 RNA polymerase

Hui Wu, Ting Wei, Bingbing Yu, Rui Cheng, Fengtao Huang, Xuelin Lu, Yan Yan, Xionglue Wang, Chenli Liu & Bin Zhu
Transcription termination is one of the least understood processes of gene expression. As the prototype model for transcription studies, the single-subunit T7 RNA polymerase (RNAP) is known to respond to two types of termination signals, but the mechanism underlying such termination, especially the specific elements of the polymerase involved, is still unclear, due to a lack of knowledge with respect to the structure of the termination complex. Here we applied phage-assisted continuous evolution to obtain...
