Long non-coding RNA PMS2L2 is down-regulated in osteoarthritis and inhibits chondrocyte proliferation by up-regulating miR-34aFei Yang, Min Zhao, Qinghua Sang, Changhong Yan & Zhenjun Wang
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) PMS2L2 has been reported to participate in endotoxin-induced inflammatory responses. As these types of responses can promote osteoarthritis (OA), it was of interest to ascertain if PMS2L2 may be involved in OA. To explore any potential participation of PMS2L2 in OA, synovial fluid was extracted from both OA patients and healthy controls (n = 62 each) and PMS2L2 expression of each sample determined by RT-qPCR. In addition, as miR-34a has a...
Moths and butterflies on alien shores – global biogeography of non-native LepidopteraRichard Mally, Rebecca M. Turner, Rachael E. Blake, Gyda Fenn-Moltu, Cleo Bertelsmeier, Eckehard G. Brockerhoff, Robert J. B. Hoare, Helen F. Nahrung, Alain Roques, Deepa S. Pureswaran, Takehiko Yamanaka & Andrew M. Liebhold
Lepidoptera is a highly diverse, predominantly herbivorous insect order, with species transported to outside their native range largely facilitated by the global trade of plants and plant-based goods. Analogous to island disharmony, we examine invasion disharmony, where species filtering during invasions increases systematic compositional differences between native and non-native species assemblages, and test whether some families are more successful at establishing in non-native regions than others. We compared numbers of non-native, unintentionally introduced Lepidoptera species...

Prevalence and trend of smokeless tobacco use and its associated factors among adolescents aged 12–16 years in 138 countries/territories, 1999–2019Hui Yang, Chuanwei Ma, Min Zhao, Costan G. Magnussen & Bo Xi
Abstract Background Smokeless tobacco use is popular in some regions worldwide, but it receives less attention compared to cigarette smoking. We aimed to estimate the recent prevalence of, and trends in, smokeless tobacco use and to examine its associated factors among adolescents aged 12–16 years in 138 countries/territories (hereafter “countries”) from 1999 to 2019. Methods Data from the Global Youth Tobacco Survey conducted in 138 countries in 2010–2019 and the National Youth Tobacco Survey conducted...

Supplementary material from \"Hoxa9/meis1-transgenic zebrafish develops acute myeloid leukaemia-like disease with rapid onset and high penetrance\"Wei Wang, Hongji Li, Mengling Huang, Xue Wang, Wei Li, Xiaoqing Qian & Lili Jing
HOXA9 and MEIS1 are co-expressed in over 50% of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and play essential roles in leukemogenesis, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood. Diverse animal models offer valuable tools to recapitulate different aspects of AML and link in vitro studies to clinical trials. We generated a double transgenic zebrafish that enables hoxa9 overexpression in blood cells under the draculin (drl) regulatory element and an inducible expression of meis1 through a heat shock...
A machine learning-based data mining in medical examination data: a biological features-based biological age prediction modelQing Yang, Sunan Gao, Junfen Lin, Ke Lyu, Zexu Wu, Yuhao Chen, Yinwei Qiu, Yanrong Zhao, Wei Wang, Tianxiang Lin, Huiyun Pan & Ming Chen
Abstract Background Biological age (BA) has been recognized as a more accurate indicator of aging than chronological age (CA). However, the current limitations include: insufficient attention to the incompleteness of medical data for constructing BA; Lack of machine learning-based BA (ML-BA) on the Chinese population; Neglect of the influence of model overfitting degree on the stability of the association results. Methods and results Based on the medical examination data of the Chinese population (45–90 years),...
Supplementary material from \"Beyond facial width-to-height ratios: bizygomatic width is highly sexually dimorphic when adjusting for allometry\"Neil R. Caton & Barnaby J. W. Dixson
A large and ever-growing literature implicates male facial width-to-height ratio (bizygomatic width divided by facial height) as a secondary sexual trait linked to numerous physical and psychological perceptions. However, this research is based entirely on the premise that bizygomatic width is sexually dimorphic, which recent research has called into question. Unfortunately, statisticians for the last 125 years have noted that morphological ratio measurements may engender spurious correlations and biased effect-size estimates. In the current study,...

A practice-led assessment of landscape restoration potential in a biodiversity hotspotAbigail Wills, Andrew Marshall, Deo Shirima, Olivier Villemaire-Côté, Philip Platts, Sarah Knight, Robin Loveridge, Hamidu Seki, Catherine Waite, Pantaleo Munishi, Herman Lyatuu, Blanca Bernal & Marion Pfeifer
Effective restoration planning tools are needed to mitigate global carbon and biodiversity crises. Published spatial assessments of restoration potential are often at large scales or coarse resolutions inappropriate for local action. Using a Tanzanian case study, we introduce a systematic approach to inform landscape restoration planning, estimating spatial variation in cost-effectiveness, based on restoration method, logistics, biomass modelling and uncertainty mapping. We found potential for biomass recovery across 77.7% of a 53,000 km2 region, but...
The Effect of Coumestrol on Hub Genes in Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma Based on Bioinformatic StrategyQingqing Shan, Yifan Zhang, Xu Zhang, Wei Wang & Zongan Liang
Purpose There is limited treatment for lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC), so there is an urgent need to find new antitumor drugs. Materials and Methods We downloaded datasets from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and the Cancer Genome Atlas databases. We used GEO2R and the “limma” package to screen differentially expressed genes. We used the Cytoscape software to screen out hub genes. We screened herbs that act on hub genes on the Chinese medicine website....
Vascular endothelial growth factor and the risk of venous thromboembolism: a genetic correlation and two-sample Mendelian randomization studyQiaoyun Zhang, Xiaoyu Zhang, Jie Zhang, Biyan Wang, Qiuyue Tian, Xiaoni Meng, Jinxia Zhang, Mengyang Jiang, Yiqiang Zhang, Deqiang Zheng, Lijuan Wu, Wei Wang, Baoguo Wang & Youxin Wang
Abstract Background The relationship between vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) has always been one of the concerns in the medical field. However, the causal inferences from published observational studies on this issue may be affected by confounders or reverse causality. We performed a two-sample bidirectional Mendelian randomization (MR) to infer the associations between VEGF and VTE. Methods Summary statistics from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for VEGF and VTE...
