Hence, this article was carried out to explore its roles in COAD and associations with immunity. RRAGB single-gene expression matrix and corresponding clinical information were extracted from TCGA database. Univariate/multivariate cox regression analyses...

Comparison of EM-seq and PBAT methylome library methods for low-input DNA

Yanan Han, Galina Yurevna Zheleznyakova, Yanara Marincevic-Zuniga, Majid Pahlevan Kakhki, Amanda Raine, Maria Needhamsen & Maja Jagodic
DNA methylation is the most studied epigenetic mark involved in regulation of gene expression. For low input samples, a limited number of methods for quantifying DNA methylation genome-wide has been evaluated. Here, we compared a series of input DNA amounts (1–10ng) from two methylome library preparation protocols, enzymatic methyl-seq (EM-seq) and post-bisulfite adaptor tagging (PBAT) adapted from single-cell PBAT. EM-seq takes advantage of enzymatic activity while PBAT relies on conventional bisulfite conversion for detection of...

Each job requires a sequence-dependent setup to be processed on the machine, and both setup and processing of the job require job-dependent amounts of energy. The energy consumed by the machine can be bought from an Electric Power Company (EPC) or generated by own Distributed Energy Resource (DER), such as solar photovoltaic or wind, and the energy can be...

Systematic review and meta-analysis of the predictive power of MTHFR polymorphisms for pemetrexed drug efficacy and toxicity in non-small cell lung cancer patients

Yu Bai, Xu Ma & Yan-hua Zhang
We conducted a meta-analysis to determine if MTHFR polymorphisms are effective biomarkers for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patient survival and pemetrexed (PEM) treatment toxicity. Because of data heterogeneity, fixed or random effects models were chosen, and pooled HRs and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated. No correlation between MTHFR 677 C > T polymorphism and progression-free survival (PFS) or overall survival (OS) was detected in NSCLC patients; however, patients with the T allele benefited...

Improved kth power expectile regression with nonignorable dropouts

Dongyu Li & Lei Wang
The kth (1<k≤ 2) power expectile regression (ER) can balance robustness and effectiveness between the ordinary quantile regression and ER simultaneously. Motivated by a longitudinal ACTG 193A data with nonignorable dropouts, we propose a two-stage estimation procedure and statistical inference methods based on the kth power ER and empirical likelihood to accommodate both the within-subject correlations and nonignorable dropouts. Firstly, we construct the bias-corrected generalized estimating equations by combining the kth power ER and inverse...

Yong Zhang, Jing-Jing Li, An-Jun Wang, Bo Wang, Shou-Liang Hu, Heng Zhang, Tian Li & Yan-Hong Tuo
Blood pressure (BP) variability is highly correlated with cardiovascular and kidney outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, appropriate BP targets in patients with CKD remain uncertain. We searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of CKD patients who underwent intensive BP management. Kappa score was used to assess inter-rater agreement. A good agreement between the authors was observed to inter-rater reliability of RCTs selection (kappa = 0.77;...

Transcriptional dynamics of transposable elements when converting fibroblast cells of Macaca mulatta to neuroepithelial stem cells

Dahai Liu, Li Liu, Kui Duan, Junqiang Guo, Shipeng Li, Zhigang Zhao, Xiaotuo Zhang, Nan Zhou & Yun Zheng
Abstract Background Transposable elements (TE) account for more than 50% of human genome. It has been reported that some types of TEs are dynamically regulated in the reprogramming of human cell lines. However, it is largely unknown whether some TEs in Macaca mulatta are also regulated during the reprogramming of cell lines of monkey. Results Here, we systematically examined the transcriptional activities of TEs during the conversion of Macaca mulatta fibroblast cells to neuroepithelial stem...
