High hydrostatic pressure (30 atm) enhances the apoptosis and inhibits the proteoglycan synthesis and extracellular matrix level of human nucleus pulposus cells via promoting the Wnt/β-catenin pathway

Zongting Shi, Jun He, Jian He & Yuan Xu
Hydrostatic pressure is known to regulate bovine nucleus pulposus cell metabolism, but its mechanism in human nucleus pulposus cells (HNPCs) remains obscure, which attracts our attention and becomes the focus in this study. Specifically, HNPCs were treated with SKL2001 (an agonist in the Wnt/β-catenin pathway) or XAV-939 (an inhibitor of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway), and pressurized under the hydrostatic pressure of 1, 3 and 30 atm. The viability, apoptosis and proteoglycan synthesis of treated HNPC were...

Identification of the metabolic remodeling profile in the early-stage of myocardial ischemia and the contributory role of mitochondrion

Jun He, Qian Liu, Jie Wang, Fangjing Xu, Yucheng Fan, Ruhua He, Ru Yan & Li Zhu
Cardiac remodeling is the primary pathological feature of chronic heart failure. Prompt inhibition of remodeling in acute coronary syndrome has been a standard procedure, but the morbidity and mortality are still high. Exploring the characteristics of ischemia in much earlier stages and identifying its biomarkers are essential for introducing novel mechanisms and therapeutic strategies. Metabolic and structural remodeling of mitochondrion is identified to play key roles in ischemic heart disease. The mitochondrial metabolic features in...

Additive genetic variation, but not temperature, influences warning signal expression in Amata nigriceps moths (Lepidoptera: Arctiinae)

Georgina Binns, Liisa Hämäläinen, Darrell Kemp, Hannah Rowland, Kate Umbers & Marie Herberstein
Many aposematic species show variation in their colour patterns even though selection by predators is expected to stabilise warning signals towards a common phenotype. Warning signal variability can be explained by trade-offs with other functions of colouration, such as thermoregulation, that may constrain warning signal expression by favouring darker individuals. Here, we investigated the effect of temperature on warning signal expression in aposematic Amata nigriceps moths that vary in their black and orange wing patterns....

Submillimeter-spatial-resolution φ-OFDR strain sensor using femtosecond laser induced permanent scatters

Yanjie Meng, Cailing Fu, Lin Chen, Chao Du, Huajian Zhong, Yiping Wang, Jun He & Weijia Bao
A φ-OFDR strain sensor with a submillimeter-spatial-resolution of 233 μm, was demonstrated by using the femtosecond laser induced permanent scatters (PSs) in standard single mode fiber (SMF). The PSs-inscribed SMF, i.e., strain sensor, with an interval of 233 μm exhibited a Rayleigh backscattering intensity (RBS) enhancement of 26 dB and insertion loss of 0.6 dB, respectively. A novel method, i.e., PSs-assisted φ-OFDR, was proposed to demodulate the strain distribution based on the extracted phase difference...

Data for: Epistatic effects between amino acid insertions and substitutions mediate toxin-resistance of vertebrate Na+, K+-ATPases

Shabnam Mohammadi, Halil Özdemir, Pemra Ozbek, Fidan Sumbul, Josefin Stiller, Yuan Deng, Andrew Crawford, Hannah Rowland, Jay Storz, Peter Andolfatto & Susanne Dobler
The recurrent evolution of resistance to cardiotonic steroids (CTS) across diverse animals most frequently involves convergent amino-acid substitutions in the H1-H2 extracellular loop of Na+, K+-ATPase (NKA). Previous work revealed that hystricognath rodents (e.g. chinchilla) and pterocliform birds (sandgrouse) have convergently evolved amino-acid insertions in the H1-H2 loop, but their functional significance was not known. Using protein engineering, we show that these insertions have distinct effects on CTS resistance in homologs of each of the...

Mycoplasma pneumoniae downregulates RECK to promote matrix metalloproteinase-9 secretion by bronchial epithelial cells

Lianmei Qin, Lu Liu, Yueping Wu, Yiwen Chen, Yueyue Wu, Haodang Luo, Yixuan Xi, Feichen Xiu, Jun Hu, Liesong Chen, Ning Wu, Jun He, Yanhua Zeng, Cuiming Zhu & Xiaoxing You
Airway epithelial cells function as both a physical barrier against harmful substances and pathogenic microorganisms and as an important participant in the innate immune system. Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) plays a crucial role in modulating inflammatory responses during respiratory infections. However, the signalling cascade that induces MMP-9 secretion from epithelial cells infected with Mycoplasma pneumoniae remains poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the mechanism of MMP-9 secretion in airway epithelial cells infected with M. pneumoniae....

Whole-transcriptome profiles of Chrysanthemum seticuspe improve genome annotation and shed new light on mRNA–miRNA–lncRNA networks in ray florets and disc florets

Daojin Sun, Jing Zhang, Jun He, Zhiqiang Geng, Song Li, Jiali Zhang, Peiling Li, Lingling Zhang, Zhenxing Wang, Likai Wang, Fadi Chen & Aiping Song
Abstract Background Chrysanthemum seticuspe has emerged as a model plant species of cultivated chrysanthemums, especially for studies involving diploid and self-compatible pure lines (Gojo-0). Its genome was sequenced and assembled into chromosomes. However, the genome annotation of C. seticuspe still needs to be improved to elucidate the complex regulatory networks in this species. Results In addition to the 74,259 mRNAs annotated in the C. seticuspe genome, we identified 18,265 novel mRNAs, 51,425 novel lncRNAs, 501...

Sequestration of defenses against predators drives specialized host plant associations in preadapted milkweed bugs (Heteroptera: Lygaeinae)

Georg Petschenka, Rayko Halitschke, Tobias Züst, Anna Roth, Sabrina Stiehler, Linda Tenbusch, Christoph Hartwig, Juan Francisco Moreno Gámez, Robert Trusch, Jürgen Deckert, Kateřina Chalušová, Andreas Vilcinskas & Alice Exnerová
Host plant specialization across herbivorous insects varies dramatically, but while the molecular mechanisms of host-plant adaptations are increasingly known, we often lack a comprehensive understanding of the selective forces that favor specialization. The milkweed bugs (Heteroptera: Lygaeinae) are engaged in ancestrally specialized associations with plants of the Apocynaceae from which they commonly sequester cardiac glycosides for defense, facilitated by resistant Na+/K+-ATPases and adaptations for transport, storage and discharge of toxins. Here, we show that three...

Climatic history, constraints, and the plasticity of phytochemical traits under water stress

Aramee Diethelm, Michael Reichelt, Thomas Dilts, James Farlin, Audrey Marlar & Elizabeth Pringle
Environmental stress can induce changes in organismal traits and in resulting intraspecific variation. The nature of such effects will depend on the plasticity of trait expression and on any ecological constraints to such expression. Plants can mitigate abiotic stress, like drought, by changing their chemistry, but the ability to induce costly metabolites may be under strong local selection and ecologically constrained. Here we asked whether climate at the seed source predicts plant chemical plasticity in...

Data from: Effect of altitude on volatile organic and phenolic compounds of artemisia brevifolia wall ex Dc. from the Western Himalayas

Nandita Nataraj, Manzoor Hussain, Mohd Ibrahim, Alexander E. Hausmann, Srinivas Rao, Satwinderjeet Kaur, Jabeena Khazir, Bilal Ahmad Mir & Shannon B. Olsson
Adaptation to changing environmental conditions is a driver of plant diversification. Elevational gradients offer a unique opportunity for investigating adaptation to a range of climatic conditions. The use of specialized metabolites as volatile and phenolic compounds is a major adaptation in plants, affecting their reproductive success and survival by attracting pollinators and protecting themselves from herbivores and other stressors. The wormseed Artemisia brevifolia can be found across multiple elevations in the Western Himalayas, a region...

Data from: Constraints on the evolution of toxin-resistant Na,K-ATPases have limited dependence on sequence divergence

Shabnam Mohammadi, Santiago Herrera-Álvarez, Lu Yang, María Del Pilar Rodríguez-Ordoñez, Karen Zhang, Jay F. Storz, Susanne Dobler, Andrew J. Crawford & Peter Andolfatto
A growing body of theoretical and experimental evidence suggests that intramolecular epistasis is a major determinant of rates and patterns of protein evolution and imposes a substantial constraint on the evolution of novel protein functions. Here, we examine the role of intramolecular epistasis in the recurrent evolution of resistance to cardiotonic steroids (CTS) across tetrapods, which occurs via specific amino acid substitutions to the α-subunit family of Na,K-ATPases (ATP1A). After identifying a series of recurrent...
