Ivabradine protects rats against myocardial infarction through reinforcing autophagy via inhibiting PI3K/AKT/mTOR/p70S6K pathway

Yingnan Dai, Yeping Chen, Guoqian Wei, Li Zha & Xueqi Li
Ivabradine (Iva), a heart rate reducing agent that specifically inhibits the pacemaker I(f) ionic current, has been demonstrated to be cardioprotective in many cardiovascular diseases. Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved metabolic process that regulates cardiac homeostasis. This study is aimed to explore whether autophagy is functionally involved in the cardioprotective effect of Iva in a rat model of myocardial infarction (MI). We observed that Iva treatment (po, 10 mg/kg/day) showed significant recovery on the hemodynamics...

MicroRNA-146b-3p regulates the dysfunction of vascular smooth muscle cells via repressing phosphoinositide-3 kinase catalytic subunit gamma

Xijing Zhuang, Feng Gao, Lei Shi, Wei Liu, Wenjun Wang, Xuezhi He & Yang Gao
MicroRNAs are crucial regulators in the phenotype switch of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Nonetheless, the role of miR-146b-3p in VSMCs remains unclear. In the present study, platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) at different concentrations was employed to stimulate VSMCs for different times, to establish the model of VSMC dysfunction. The relative expression of miR-146b-3p was quantified by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). The proliferation of VSMCs was measured by BrdU assay. Flow cytometry analysis...

Antioxidant and antibacterial activities of 13 ornamental herbaceous peony cultivars: a comparative study with stems and leaves

Lei Liu, Yingdan Yuan & Jun Tao
Paeonia lactiflora is an important ornamental and medicinal plant, but after the flowering period, the above-ground parts of ornamental cultivars are often discarded as waste. When considering the development of medicinal plant resources, attention should be paid to the comprehensive development and utilisation of the plant. In this study, 13 ornamental herbaceous peony cultivars were selected, and their stems and leaves were analysed for antioxidant and antibacterial activities. The results showed that total phenolic content...

Kazak faecal microbiota transplantation induces short-chain fatty acids that promote glucagon-like peptide-1 secretion by regulating gut microbiota in db/db mice

Xue Han, Ye Wang, Peipei Zhang, Manli Zhu, Ling Li, Xinmin Mao, Xiaoting Sha & Linlin Li
Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) from Kazak individuals with normal glucose tolerance (KNGT) significantly reduces plasma glycolipid levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus db/db mice. However, the mechanism behind this effect has not been reported. To study the mechanism of improved glycolipid disorders in db/db mice by FMT from a KNGT donor. The normal diet group consisted of db/m mice orally administered 0.2 mL phosphate buffer saline (PBS) (db/m + PBS). For the db/db + PBS...

HIF-1α promotes the keloid development through the activation of TGF-β/Smad and TLR4/MyD88/NF-κB pathways

Rui Lei, Jian Li, Feng Liu, Weihan Li, Shizhen Zhang, Yang Wang, Xi Chu & Jinghong Xu
A keloid is defined as an overgrowth of the dense fibrous tissues that form around a wound. Since they destroy the vascular network, keloid tissues often exhibit anoxic conditions. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is a core factor that mediates hypoxia stress responses and regulates the hypoxic cellular and biological behaviors. In this study, we found that the expression level of HIF-1α in keloid tissue was significantly higher than that in the normal skin tissue. Hypoxia-induced HIF-1α...

Suppressed inflammation in obese children induced by a high-fiber diet is associated with the attenuation of gut microbial virulence factor genes

Hui Li, Guojun Wu, Liping Zhao & Menghui Zhang
In our previous study, a gut microbiota-targeted dietary intervention with a high-fiber diet improved the immune status of both genetically obese (Prader-Willi Syndrome, PWS) and simple obese (SO) children. However, PWS children had higher inflammation levels than SO children throughout the trial, the gut microbiota of the two cohorts was similar. As some virulence factors (VFs) produced by the gut microbiota play a role in triggering host inflammation, this study compared the characteristics and changes...

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...

LncRNACASC9 promotes proliferation, metastasis, and cell cycle inovarian carcinoma cells through cyclinG1/TP53/MMP7 signaling

Min Sun, Yanan Chen, Xiaobei Liu & Yajie Cui
Ovarian cancer (OC) brings about serious physical and psychological burden for female patients. LncRNA CASC9 has been reported to be intimately linked with the occurrence and development of several tumors. However, the biological role of lncRNA CASC9 in OC still lacks sufficient evidence. The expressions of CASC9 and miR-488-3p in OC cell lines and xenograft mice were detected by qRT-PCR assay. Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) assay was used to assess cell inhibition rate and cell...

Lei Zhang, Xinxin Zheng, Jun Li, Guoqing Wang, Zenglei Hu, Yu Chen, Xiaoquan Wang, Min Gu, Ruyi Gao, Shunlin Hu, Xiaowen Liu, Xinan Jiao, Daxin Peng, Jiao Hu & Xiufan Liu
A growing body of evidence suggests the pivotal role of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in influenza virus infection. Based on next-generation sequencing, we previously demonstrated that Lnc45 was distinctively stimulated by H5N1 influenza virus in mice. In this study, we systematically investigated the specific role of Lnc45 during influenza A virus (IAV) infection. Through qRT-PCR, we first demonstrated that Lnc45 is highly up-regulated by different subtypes of IAV strains, including H5N1, H7N9, and H1N1 viruses....

A pan-cancer analysis of the prognostic and immunological role of β-actin (ACTB) in human cancers

Yuxi Gu, Shouyi Tang, Zhen Wang, Luyao Cai, Haosen Lian, Yingqiang Shen & Yu Zhou
Beta-actin (ACTB), a highly conserved cytoskeleton structural protein, has been regarded as a common housekeep gene and used as a reference gene for years. However, accumulating evidence indicates that ACTB is abnormally expressed in multiple cancers and hence changes the cytoskeleton to affect the invasiveness and metastasis of tumors. This study aimed to investigate the function and clinical significance of ACTB in pan-cancer. The role of ACTB for prognosis and immune regulation across 33 tumors...

mRNA m5C controls adipogenesis by promoting CDKN1A mRNA export and translation

Youhua Liu, Yuanling Zhao, Ruifan Wu, Yushi Chen, Wei Chen, Yuxi Liu, Yaojun Luo, Chaoqun Huang, Botao Zeng, Xing Liao, Guanqun Guo, Yizhen Wang & Xinxia Wang
5-Methylcytosine (m5C) is a type of RNA modification that exists in tRNAs and rRNAs and was recently found in mRNA. Although mRNA m5C modification has been reported to regulate diverse biological process, its function in adipogenesis remains unknown. Here, we demonstrated that knockdown of NOL1/NOP2/Sun domain family member 2 (NSUN2), a m5C methyltransferase, increased lipid accumulation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes through accelerating cell cycle progression during mitotic clonal expansion (MCE) at the early stage of adipogenesis....

Comparison of different pretreatment methods on phosphorus release and recovery as struvite from excess sludge

Dexiu Hu, Cong Zhang & Yan Zhang
Recovering phosphorus (P) from excess sludge of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) has attracted considerable attention. An efficient P release method is undoubtedly critical for a satisfactory recovery performance. In this study, the effectiveness of three sludge pretreatment methods, i.e. anaerobic digestion (AD), EDTA-anaerobic digestion (EA) and ultrasound combined with EA (U-EA), on P release and struvite recovery from excess sludge was investigated. The results showed that different pretreatment methods resulted in the different characteristics of...
