An epithelial-mesenchymal transition-Related Long Non-Coding RNA signature to predict overall survival and immune microenvironment in Kidney Renal Clear Cell Carcinoma

Yong-Biao Cheng, Sen Li, You-Peng Zhang, Zhao-Hui Zhu & Ning Zhao
Kidney renal clear cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is a malignant tumor originating from renal tubular epithelium, lncRNAs can regulate the occurrence and development of EMT by targeting EMT transcription factors. We constructed a new survival signature based on EMT-related differentially expressed lncRNAs obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA-KIRC). We first determined 1377 EMT-related lncRNAs, lncRNA AL035661.1 with the largest correlation coefficient and the target gene was PFN2 (cor=0.843; P=1.37E-146). Meanwhile, we found an AUC of...

Generation of functional NaV1.5 current by endogenous transcriptional activation of SCN5A

Liang Xu & Rui Shi
The sodium channel NaV1.5, which is encoded by the SCN5A gene, underlies the fast upstroke of cardiac action potential and thus plays a crucial role in cardiac electrophysiology, but the mechanism governing the regulation of NaV1.5 has not been fully elucidated. The newly developed clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRSPR)/Cas9 transcription factors offer a powerful and precise approach for modulating gene expression. We investigated the potential of this new tool for activating stringently silenced...

Sheng Mao, Tian Ge, Yuefeng Cai, Nanjing Ji, Xue Kong & Xin Shen
Cirripedia is a lower crustacean that has an invaluable place in several aspects of intertidal ecology and anti-fouling research. In this study, we present the first mitochondrial genome of Chthamalus malayensis. The complete mitochondrial genome of C. malayensis is a circular molecule of 15,230 bp. In comparison to the pancrustacean ground pattern, the mitochondrial genome of C. malayensis has a deletion of the trnC gene. Phylogenetic analysis based on mitochondrial protein-coding genes showed that C....

Calcineurin-mediated intracellular organelle calcium homeostasis is required for the survival of fungal pathogens upon extracellular calcium stimuli

Chi Zhang, Yiran Ren, Huiyu Gu, Lu Gao, Yuanwei Zhang & Ling Lu
In eukaryotes, calcium not only is an essential mineral nutrient but also serves as an intracellular second messenger that is necessary for many physiological processes. Previous studies showed that the protein phosphatase-calcineurin protects fungi from toxicity caused by the extracellular calcium; however, little is known about how calcineurin mediates the cellular physiology process for this function. In this study, by monitoring intracellular calcium, particularly by tracking vacuolar calcium dynamics in living cells through a novel...

Study on influencing factors of Pickering emulsion stabilized by modified montmorillonite and fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether

Qian Chen, Zeyu Yang, Xiumei Tai, Yanyun Bai & Guoyong Wang
Pickering emulsion is widely used in food, drug administration, and cosmetics. In practical applications, surfactants are often co-present with particles, so it is particularly critical to study particle-surfactant interactions. Pickering emulsions were prepared using stearyltrimethylammoniumchloride organic montmorillonite (STAC/MMT) and fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether (AEO-3) as stabilizers. Effects of AEO-3 content, STAC/MMT content, oil-water ratio, emulsification temperature, emulsification time on emulsion stability were systematically revealed by studying the particle size distribution and phase volume of the...

Fangyuan Li, Hua Lu, Xinxin Wang, Qi Zhang, Qianchen Liu & Tong Wang
Abstract Background Thin endometrium negatively impacts the reproductive function. Current treatments for thin endometrium do not always improve endometrial receptivity. Preliminary evidence suggests that electroacupuncture could have potential therapy for thin endometrium in infertile women. Thus, this randomized controlled trial was designed to test whether electroacupuncture can improve endometrial receptivity in infertile women with thin endometrium. Methods This study is a randomized, single-blinded, controlled, clinical trial. A total of 142 eligible patients will be recruited...

A “Y” Incision/Rectangular Patch to Enlarge the Aortic Annulus by 4 Valve Sizes in TAV and BAV Patients

Aroma Naeem & Bo Yang
We previously described using a “Y” incision and rectangular patch to enlarge the aortic annulus by 2-3 valve sizes for aortic valve replacement (AVR) with bioprosthesis (1) or mechanical valve (2) in patients with trileaflet aortic valve (TAV). As we are becoming more experienced, we are able to enlarge the aortic annulus by 4 valve sizes routinely in either TAV or bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). In this video we used a case of TAV to...

Rong Liao, Qi-Zhi Ma, Cong-Ya Zhou, Jun-Jun Li, Ning-Na Weng, Yang Yang & Qing Zhu
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common tumors, ranking second in the global cause of death from cancer. The prognosis of advanced patients is still very poor. In this study, hub modules with the highest association with tumor-infiltrating immune cells were identified by weighted gene co-expression network analysis based on CRC expression data from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. Next, three hub genes (ADAM8, IL-1A, VAV3) related to infiltrating immune cells were identified...
