Abstract Background BCR-ABL1T315I mutations confer resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Olverembatinib is a new potent BCR-ABL1 TKI with preclinical activity against T315I-mutated CML. In phase 1/2 studies, we explored the safety and efficacy of olverembatinib in Chinese adults with TKI-resistant CML in the chronic phase (CML-CP) and accelerated phase (CML-AP). Methods In the phase 1 study, olverembatinib was orally administered once every other day in 28-day cycles at 11...

Jing Li, Haoran Du, Xin Ji, Yihan Chen, Yishuai Li, Boon Chin Heng & Jianguang Xu
Abstract Background The repair of cranio-maxillofacial bone defects remains a formidable clinical challenge. The Ets variant 2 (ETV2) transcription factor, which belongs to the E26 transformation-specific (ETS) family, has been reported to play a key role in neovascularization. However, the role of ETV2 in the osteogenesis of human dental pulp stem cells (hDPSCs) remains unexplored. Methods Transgenic overexpression of ETV2 was achieved using a lentiviral vector, based on a Dox-inducible system. The effects of Dox-induced...

TNFα and IFNγ rapidly activate PI3K-AKT signaling to drive glycolysis that confers mesenchymal stem cells enhanced anti-inflammatory property

Chenchang Xu, Chao Feng, Peiqing Huang, Yinghong Li, Rui Liu, Chunxiao Liu, Yuyi Han, Lei Chen, Yayun Ding, Changshun Shao & Yufang Shi
Abstract Background Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) acquire immunosuppressive capacity only in an inflammatory microenvironment. This can be recapitulated in vitro by treating MSCs with inflammatory cytokines TNFα and IFNγ, which induce indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and TNF-stimulated gene-6 (TSG-6). However, the signaling pathways downstream of the cytokines remain to be elucidated. Methods Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) mouse model was established by subjecting mice to dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) in drinking water for 7 days. Human UC-MSCs...

Abstract Background NAFLD has become the most common chronic liver disease worldwide. Human antigen R (HuR), an RNA-binding protein, is an important post-transcriptional regulator. HuR has been reported as a key player in regulating lipid homeostasis in the liver and adipose tissues by using tissue-specific HuR knockout mice. However, the underlying mechanism by which hepatocyte-specific HuR regulates hepatic lipid metabolism under metabolic stress remains unclear and is the focus of this study. Methods Hepatocyte-specific HuR...

Design of an achromatic zoom metalens doublet in the visible

Tie Hu, feng xing, Yunxuan Wei, Shengqi Wang, Yuhong Wei, Zhen Yu Yang & Ming Zhao
Zoom metalens doublets, featuring ultra-compactness, strong zoom capability and CMOS compatibility, exhibit unprecedented advantages over the traditional refractive zoom lens. However, the huge chromatic aberration narrows the working bandwidth, which limits their potential applications in broadband systems. Here, by globally optimizing the phase profiles in the visible, we designed and numerically demonstrated a Moire lens based zoom metalens doublet that can achromatically work in the band of 440-640 nm. Such a doublet can achieve a...

Tailoring Lithium Fluoride Interface for Dendrite-Free Lithium Anode to Prolong the Cyclic Stability of Lithium–Sulfur Pouch Cells

Li Zhang, Yu Jiao, Fan Wang, Mingjie Zhou, Yin Hu, Yichao Yan, Fei Li, Tianyu Lei, Bo Chen & Wei Chen
Abstract Lithium–sulfur (Li–S) cells have been regarded as attractive alternatives to achieve higher energy densities because of their theoretical specific energy far beyond the lithium-ion cells. However, the achieved results of Li–S cells are exaggerating the cycle performance in their pouch formats because the considerable works are based on the coin cells where flood electrolyte and endless Li supply ensure the Li metal with nature structure features, resulting in a negligible effect on cycle performance...

Shaohua Li, Zida Zheng, Yi Zhang, Yue Liu, Xueyun Liu & Xiaowei Zhang
Performance degradation is still a challenge for the development of conventional polymer luminescent solar concentrator (LSC). Liquid LSC (L-LSC) may be an alternative due to polymerization-free fabrication. Here, we have prepared a CsPbBr3 quantum dots (QDs)-based L-LSC by injecting the QDs solution into a self-assembly quartz glass mold. The as-fabricated L-LSC performance is evaluated by optical characterization and photo-electrical measurement. The external quantum efficiency of the L-LSC is up to 13.44%. After coupling the commercial...

LncRNA FENDRR with m6A RNA methylation regulates hypoxia-induced pulmonary artery endothelial cell pyroptosis by mediating DRP1 DNA methylation

Xiaoying Wang, Qian Li, Siyu He, June Bai, Cui Ma, Lixin Zhang, Xiaoyu Guan, Hao Yuan, Yiying Li, Xiangrui Zhu, Jian Mei, Feng Gao & Daling Zhu
Abstract Background Pyroptosis is a form of programmed cell death involved in the pathophysiological progression of hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (HPH). Emerging evidence suggests that N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-modified transcripts of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are important regulators that participate in many diseases. However, whether m6A modified transcripts of lncRNAs can regulate pyroptosis in HPH progression remains unexplored. Methods The expression levels of FENDRR in hypoxic pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAECs) were detected by using quantitative real-time polymerase...

Tian Du, Lu Pan, Chengyou Zheng, Keming Chen, Yuanzhong Yang, Jiewei Chen, Xue Chao, Mei Li, Jiabin Lu, Rongzhen Luo, Jinhui Zhang, Yu Wu, Jiehua He, Dongping Jiang & Peng Sun
Abstract Background Metastatic breast carcinoma is commonly considered during differential diagnosis when metastatic disease is detected in females. In addition to the tumor morphology and documented clinical history, sensitive and specific immunohistochemical (IHC) markers such as GCDFP-15, mammaglobin, and GATA3 are helpful for determining breast origin. However, these markers are reported to show lower sensitivity in certain subtypes, such as triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Materials and methods Using bioinformatics analyses, we identified a potential diagnostic...

Shuai Yu, Zhichao Zhang, Jing Li, Yanbin Zhu, Yanzhe Yin, Xiaoyu Zhang, Yuxin Dai, Ao Zhang, Cong Li, Yanshu Zhu, Jinjuan Fan, Yanye Ruan & Xiaomei Dong
Abstract Background Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), as important regulators, play important roles in plant growth and development. The expression and epigenetic regulation of lncRNAs remain uncharacterized generally in plant seeds, especially in the transient endosperm of the dicotyledons. Results In this study, we identified 11,840 candidate lncRNAs in 12 day-after-pollination sunflower endosperm by analyzing RNA-seq data. These lncRNAs were evenly distributed in all chromosomes and had specific features that were distinct from mRNAs including tissue-specificity...

Comparison of different concentrations of a povidone iodine-diluted sitz bath in the prevention of perianal infection in patients undergoing chemotherapy for hematological malignancy: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Yuqin Luo, Yingli Wang, Mei Yang, Ting Luo, Fengjiao Chen, Yamei Leng, Li Zhou, Jinbo Fang, Yuan Li & Chen Chen
Abstract Background Infection is one of the most common causes of death in patients with hematological malignancies during chemotherapy. Due to its special location, local warmth and humidity, repeated pollution with stool and urine, and characteristically wrinkled anatomical structure within which bacteria can hide, the perianal becomes a site with a high incidence of infection. Such infection also has a high recurrence rate and high mortality, increasing the economic burden of patients, delaying the time...
