MICALL2 as a substrate of ubiquitinase TRIM21 regulates tumorigenesis of colorectal cancer

Pushuai Wen, Huade Wang, Yi Li, Xinyao Sui, Zhijuan Hou, Xiaoyan Guo, Wanying Xue, Dahua Liu, Yu Wang & Jing Gao
Abstract Background Molecule interacting with CasL-like protein 2 (MICALL2) is believed to regulate cytoskeleton dynamics, tight junction formation, and neurite outgrowth. However, its biological role and the underlying mechanism in colorectal cancer (CRC) remain largely elusive. Methods qRT-PCR, Western blotting and immunohistochemistry assays were used to detect the expression levels of different genes. Next, mass spectrometry, co-immunoprecipitation and immunofluorescence staining were used to detect the interactions of proteins. Furthermore, MTT assay, colony formation assay, wound-healing...

Accurate Determination of Trace Cadmium in Soil Samples with Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry Using Metal–Organic Frameworks as Matrix Modifiers

Hanyi Liu, Hao Cui, Yu Wang, Zhenmao Jiang, Lidan Lei & Shiqiang Wei
Cadmium (Cd) is a highly toxic heavy metal that is widely distributed in soils at low concentrations. Its volatilization loss occurs at an ashing temperature higher than 350 °C. Accordingly, the accurate determination of its concentration in soils often requires the addition of chemical modifiers by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) to improve the thermal stability of Cd. In this work, a metal–organic framework (MOF, UIO-66-NH2) was utilized as a matrix modifier to improve...

The important role of NLRP6 inflammasome in Pasteurella multocida infection

Xingping Wu, Zheng Zeng, Hongliang Tian, Lianci Peng, Dongyi Xu, Yu Wang, Chao Ye, Yuanyi Peng & Rendong Fang
Abstract Pasteurella multocida (P. multocida) can cause severe respiratory disease in cattle, resulting in high mortality and morbidity. Inflammasomes are multiprotein complexes in the cytoplasm that recognize pathogens and play an important role in the host defense against microbial infection. In this study, the mechanism of P. multocida-induced NLRP6 inflammasome activation was investigated in vitro and in vivo. Firstly, P. multocida induced severe inflammation with a large number of inflammatory cells infiltrating the lungs of...

Transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation for high-normal blood pressure: study protocol for a randomized controlled pilot trial

Yu Wang, Guang-Xia Shi, Zhong-Xue Tian, Jun-Hong Liu, You-Sheng Qi, Jian-Feng Tu, Jing-Wen Yang, Li-Qiong Wang & Cun-Zhi Liu
Abstract Background High-normal blood pressure (BP) is associated with increased all-cause, cardiovascular mortality and frequently progresses to hypertension. Transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation (TEAS) might be a non-pharmaceutical therapy option to control BP. This trial aims to determine the effectiveness and safety of TEAS combined with lifestyle modification for high-normal BP. Methods/design This prospective, randomized, and parallel clinical trial will be conducted in a community service center in China. Sixty participants with high-normal BP will be...

Accelerated Fatigue Model for Predicting Composite Restoration Failure

B. Yang, W. Aregawi, R. Chen, L. Zhang, Y. Wang & A.S.L. Fok
An empirical method is proposed to predict the clinical performance of resin composite dental restorations by using laboratory data derived from simple specimens subjected to chemical degradation and accelerated cyclic fatigue. Three resin composites were used to fill dentin disks (2-mm inner diameter, 5-mm outer diameter, and 2 mm thick) made from bovine incisor roots. The specimens (n = 30 per group) were aged with different durations of a low-pH challenge (0, 24, and 48...

Two-stage treatment for severe spinal kyphotic deformity secondary to tuberculosis: halo-pelvic traction followed by a posterior-only approach correction

Longtao Qi, Yao Zhao, Beiyu Xu, Chunde Li & Yu Wang
Abstract Background and purpose Several surgical procedures are used to treat tuberculous kyphosis. However, the treatment of extreme spinal kyphosis is challenging, and associated with various complications. Halo traction has been used as an adjunctive method in the treatment of severe spinal deformities. However, there are few reports about the effectiveness of halo-pelvic traction (HPT) for the treatment of extreme spinal kyphosis secondary to tuberculosis. This study evaluated the effectiveness of halo-pelvic traction followed by...

Failure pattern and suggestions for target volume delineation of carcinoma showing thymus-like differentiation treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy

Fang-Fang Kong, Guang-Sen Pan, Rui-Ping Zhai, Cheng-Run Du, Xia-Yun He, Chun-Ying Shen, Xue-Guan Lu, Tuan-Qi Sun, Yu Wang, Qing-Hai Ji, Chao-Su Hu & Hong-Mei Ying
Abstract Background To review our long-term clinical experience, analyze the failure patterns, and give suggestions for target volume delineation of carcinoma showing thymus-like differentiation (CASTLE) treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). Methods From April 2008 to May 2019, 30 patients with CASTLE treated by postoperative or radical IMRT in our center were retrospectively reviewed. A total dose of 56-60 Gy in 28–30 fractions was prescribed to patients without residual disease and 66 Gy in 33 fractions...

A review on the application of the exposome paradigm to unveil the environmental determinants of age-related diseases

Enmin Ding, Yu Wang, Juan Liu, Song Tang & Xiaoming Shi
Abstract Age-related diseases account for almost half of all diseases among adults worldwide, and their incidence is substantially affected by the exposome, which is the sum of all exogenous and endogenous environmental exposures and the human body’s response to these exposures throughout the entire lifespan. Herein, we perform a comprehensive review of the epidemiological literature to determine the key elements of the exposome that affect the development of age-related diseases and the roles of aging...

Deficiency of exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (EPAC)-1 in mice augments glucose intolerance, inflammation, and gut dysbiosis associated with Western diet

Preeti Dinesh Virwani, Lin Cai, Patrick Ka Kit Yeung, Gordon Qian, Yingxian Chen, Lei Zhou, Jason Wing Hon Wong, Yu Wang, Joshua Wing Kei Ho, Kui Kai Lau, Pei-Yuan Qian & Sookja Kim Chung
Abstract Background Gut microbiota (GM) dysregulation, known as dysbiosis, has been proposed as a crucial driver of obesity associated with “Western” diet (WD) consumption. Gut dysbiosis is associated with increased gut permeability, inflammation, and insulin resistance. However, host metabolic pathways implicated in the pathophysiology of gut dysbiosis are still elusive. Exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (Epac) plays a critical role in cell-cell junction formation and insulin secretion. Here, we used homozygous Epac1-knockout (Epac1–/–), Epac2-knockout...
