Comparative analysis of circRNA expression profile and circRNA-miRNA-mRNA regulatory network between palmitic and stearic acid-induced lipotoxicity to pancreatic β cells

Yunjin Zhang, Qingrui Zhao, Shenghan Su, Lingfeng Dan, Xuebei Li, Yu Wang, Yuqing Lin, Zhen Tian, Changhao Sun & Huimin Lu
Chronic exposure to high concentrations of circulating palmitic acid and stearic acid leads to impaired β cell function, which accelerates the development of type 2 diabetes. However, differences in the mechanisms underlying this process between these two saturated fatty acids remain largely unknown. In this study, we screened for potential circular RNAs (circRNAs) and their associated regulatory pathways in palmitic acid- and stearic acid-induced mouse β-TC6 cell dysfunction. CircRNA high-throughput sequencing, gene ontology enrichment and...

Varied oxygen simulations with WACCM6 (Proterozoic to pre-industrial atmosphere)

Gregory Cooke, Daniel Marsh, Catherine Walsh, Benjamin Black & Jean-François Lamarque
The history of molecular oxygen (O2) in Earth’s atmosphere is still debated; however, geological evidence supports at least two major episodes where O2 increased by an order of magnitude or more: the Great Oxidation Event (GOE) and the Neoproterozoic Oxidation Event. O2 concentrations have likely fluctuated (between 10−3 and 1.5 times the present atmospheric level) since the GOE ∼ 2.4 Gyr ago, resulting in a time-varying ozone (O3) layer. Using a three-dimensional (3D) chemistry climate...

A general modeling framework for exploring the impact of individual concern and personal protection on vector-borne disease dynamics

Kimberlyn Roosa & Nina H. Fefferman
Abstract Background As climate variability and extreme weather events associated with climate change become more prevalent, public health authorities can expect to face an expanding spectrum of vector-borne diseases with increasing incidence and geographical spread. Common interventions include the use of larvicides and adulticides, as well as targeted communications to increase public awareness regarding the need for personal protective measures, such as mosquito repellant, protective clothing, and mosquito nets. Here, we propose a simplified compartmental...

Abstract Microglia are highly dynamic immune cells of the central nervous system (CNS). Microglial processes interact with neuronal elements constantly on the order of minutes. The functional significance of this acute microglia-neuron interaction and its potential role in the context of pain is still largely unknown. Here, we found that spinal microglia increased their process motility and electrophysiological reactivity within an hour after the insult in a mouse model of formalin-induced acute, sustained, inflammatory pain....

Precise epigenomic editing with a SunTag-based modular epigenetic toolkit

Subhrangshu Guhathakurta, Levi Adams, Inhye Jeong, Anishaa Sivakumar, Mingyu Cha, Mariana Bernardo Fiadeiro, Haiyan Nancy Hu & Yoon-Seong Kim
Epigenetic regulation is a crucial factor controlling gene expression. Here, we report our CRISPR/dCas9-based modular epigenetic toolkit that enables gene-specific modulation of epigenetic architecture. By modifying the SunTag framework of dCas9 tagged with five GCN4 moieties, each epigenetic writer is bound to scFv and target-specific sgRNA, and this system is able to modify multiple epigenetic marks in a target-specific manner. We successfully demonstrated that this system is efficient in modifying individual histone post-translational modifications. We...

Trastuzumab biosimilar HLX02 versus reference trastuzumab in patients with recurrent or metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer: a model-based economic evaluation for China

Weishang Deng, Jia Hu, Mengting Li, Sensen Yang, Zeyu Xie & Jisheng Chen
HLX02 is a newly marketed trastuzumab biosimilar in China, but whether its price reflects a potential benefit in terms of its value remains unclear. In addition, the development of biosimilars in China is just beginning, and the state encourages health economic evaluation of newly marketed biosimilars. Based on the previously published randomized controlled trial data, a Markov model was used to perform health economic evaluation of HLX02 and trastuzumab in the treatment of HER2-positive recurrent...

Dexmedetomidine protects cells from Angiotensin II-induced smooth muscle cell phenotype switch and endothelial cell dysfunction

Min Dai, Xiaohong Zhu, Simin Zeng, Qiang Liu, Ruilin Hu, Lianghui Huang, Yu Wang, Jun Deng & Qi Yu
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a vascular disorder greatly threatening life of the elderly population. Dexmedetomidine (DEX), an α2-adrenergic receptor agonist, has been shown to suppress AAA development. Nevertheless, the signaling pathways that might be mediated by DEX in AAA has not been clarified. Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and endothelial cells (ECs) were treated with Angiotensin II (Ang II) to mimic AAA in vitro. BrdU, wound healing, and Transwell assays were utilized for measuring...

Devang B. Patel, Vivek D. Patel, Yash Patel, John C. Sturgis, Robert Sedlock & Rahul V. Haware
The novel modulus-based approach was developed to characterize the compression behavior of the materials and how it results into tablet mechanical strength (TMS) of the final tablet. The force–displacement profile for the model materials (Vivapur® 101, Starch 1500®, Emcompress®, and Tablettose® 100) was generated at different compression pressures (100, 150, and 200 MPa) and speeds (0.35, 0.55, and 0.75 m/s) using compaction emulator (Presster™). A generated continuous compression profile was evaluated with Heckel plot and...

Activation of arcuate nucleus glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor-expressing neurons suppresses food intake

Ishnoor Singh, Le Wang, Baijuan Xia, Ji Liu, Azeddine Tahiri, Abdelfattah El Ouaamari, Michael B. Wheeler & Zhiping P. Pang
Abstract Background Central nervous system (CNS) control of metabolism plays a pivotal role in maintaining energy balance. In the brain, Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), encoded by the proglucagon ‘Gcg’ gene, produced in a distinct population of neurons in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), has been shown to regulate feeding behavior leading to the suppression of appetite. However, neuronal networks that mediate endogenous GLP-1 action in the CNS on feeding and energy balance are not well...
