To study interactions between host figs and their pollinating wasps and the influence of climatic change on their genetic structures, we sequenced cytoplasmic and nuclear genes and genotyped nuclear microsatellite loci from two varieties of Ficus pumila, the widespread creeping fig and endemic jelly fig, and from their pollinating wasps, Wiebesia pumilae, found in Taiwan and on nearby offshore islands. Great divergence in the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mtCOI) with no genetic admixture...

The first discovery of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus in Taiwan

Tsai-Lu Lin, Shan-Chia Ou, Ken Maeda, Hiroshi Shimoda, Jacky Peng-Wen Chan, Wu-Chun Tu, Wei-Li Hsu & Chi-Chung Chou
Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS), an emerging tick-borne zoonosis, has been rapidly spread in many Asian counties since 2010, which raises the great concern in East Asia. Nevertheless, the infection status of SFTS in Taiwan remains unclear. To investigate the existence of SFTSV in Taiwan, a total of 151 serum samples collected from 31 sheep, 63 bovine and 57 dogs were enrolled this study. Furthermore, 360 adult female Rhipicephalus microplus were also included. One-step...

Risk of Ophthalmic Adverse Events in Patients Treated with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Regimens: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Yan-Li Hou, Di-Ya Wang, Jie-Xuan Hu, Ru-Yue Tian, Wei Wang, Qiang Su, Hongyang Li & Yan-Ling Wang
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) -induced adverse events (AEs) have been reported affecting almost all human organs. However, studies about ocular AEs are few. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the risks of ICI-related ophthalmic AEs compare to chemotherapy. Methods: Eligible studies were selected from phase II/III randomized controlled trials investigating ICIs. The data were analyzed by R software and Stata. Odds ratio of treatment-related AE (trAEs) and nonspecific ophthalmic trAEs (NS-trAEs) were lower for PD-1/PD-L1...

Helicobacter pylori cholesterol-α-glucosyltransferase manipulates cholesterol for bacterial adherence to gastric epithelial cells

Chung-Yao Hsu, Jia-Yin Yeh, Chun-Ya Chen, Hui-Yu Wu, Meng-Hsuan Chiang, Chia-Lin Wu, Hwai-Jeng Lin, Cheng-Hsun Chiu & Chih-Ho Lai
Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with several gastrointestinal diseases, including gastritis, peptic ulcers, and gastric cancer. Infection of cells with H. pylori is dependent on lipid rafts, which are cholesterol-rich microdomains located in the cell membrane. H. pylori cholesterol-α-glucosyltransferase (CGT) catalyzes the conversion of membrane cholesterol to cholesteryl glucosides, which can be incorporated into the bacterial cell wall, facilitating evasion from immune defense and colonization in the host. However, the detailed mechanisms underlying this process...

Genomically Hardwired Regulation of Gene Activity Orchestrates Cellular Iron Homeostasis in Arabidopsis

En-Jung Hsieh, Wen-Dar Lin & Wolfgang Schmidt
Iron (Fe) is an essential micronutrient which plays pivotal roles as electron donor and catalyst across organisms. In plants, variable, often insufficient Fe supply necessitates mechanisms that constantly attune Fe uptake rates and recalibrate cellular Fe homoeostasis. Here, we show that short-term (0.5, 6, and 12 h) exposure of Arabidopsis thaliana plants to Fe deficiency triggered massive changes in gene activity governed by transcription and alternative splicing (AS), regulatory layers that were to a large...

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...

Abstract Purpose Gamma knife radiosurgery (GK) is a commonly used approach for the treatment of intracranial lesions. Its radiation response is typically not immediate, but delayed. In this study, we analyzed cases from a prospectively collected database to assess the influence of COVID-19 pandemic on the decision making in patients treated by gamma knife radiosurgery. Methods From January 2019 to August 2021, 540 cases of intracranial lesions were treated by GK with 207 cases before...

Abstract Background The Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) comprises fungal pathogens responsible for mortality in a diverse range of animals and plants, but their genome diversity and transcriptome responses in animal pathogenicity remain to be elucidated. We sequenced, assembled and annotated six chromosome-level FSSC clade 3 genomes of aquatic animal and plant host origins. We established a pathosystem and investigated the expression data of F. falciforme and F. keratoplasticum in Chinese softshell turtle (Pelodiscus sinensis)...

Qing 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),...

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....

Aligned nanofibrous collagen membranes from fish swim bladder as a tough and acid-resistant suture for pH-regulated stomach perforation and tendon rupture

Zhaohui Luan, Shuang Liu, Wei Wang, Kaige Xu, Shaosong Ye, Ruijue Dan, Hong Zhang, Zhenzhen Shu, Tongchuan Wang, Chaoqiang Fan, Malcolm Xing & Shiming Yang
Abstract Background Wound closure in the complex body environment places higher requirements on suture’s mechanical and biological performance. In the scenario of frequent mechanical gastric motility and extremely low pH, single functional sutures have limitations in dealing with stomach bleeding trauma where the normal healing will get deteriorated in acid. It necessitates to advance suture, which can regulate wounds, resist acid and intelligently sense stomach pH. Methods Based on fish swim bladder, a double-stranded drug-loaded...

Structure changes of the subalpine Taiwan fir (Abies kawakamii (Hay.) Ito) forest from 2008 to 2018

Min-Chun Liao, Pei-Hua Li, Wei Wang, Ching-An Chiu & Hsy-Yu Tzeng
Abies kawakamii (Hay.) Ito is an endemic species mainly distributed in Taiwan’s subalpine region with an elevation of 3,000–3,600 m above sea level. It is a significant ecological indicator species in high subtropical mountains regarding plant geography and climate change. Taiwan is an island in the Asian-Pacific region. Typhoons cause forest gaps belonging to small-scale disturbances in the forest ecosystem, which is critical in maintaining species diversity and forest regeneration. We set up seven long-term...

Vascular endothelial growth factor and the risk of venous thromboembolism: a genetic correlation and two-sample Mendelian randomization study

Qiaoyun 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...
