Dan Lv, Yangpan Ou, Yunhui Chen, Zhenning Ding, Jidong Ma, Chuang Zhan, Ru Yang, Tinghuizi Shang, Guangfeng Zhang, Xiaoyu Bai, Zhenghai Sun, Jian Xiao, Xiaoping Wang, Wenbin Guo & Ping Li
Abstract Background Brain functional abnormalities at rest have been observed in obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD). However, whether and how anatomical distance influences functional connectivity (FC) at rest is ambiguous in OCD. Methods Using resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging data, we calculated the FC of each voxel in the whole-brain and divided FC into short- and long-range FCs in 40 medicine-free patients with OCD and 40 healthy controls (HCs). A support vector machine (SVM) was used to...

Endoplasmic reticulum-quality control pathway and endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation mechanism regulate the N-glycoproteins and N-glycan structures in the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum

Jichen Chen, Hong Du, Zidong Liu, Tangcheng Li, Hua Du, Wanna Wang, Muhammad Aslam, Weizhou Chen, Ping Li, Haodong Luo, Hao Fang & Xiaojuan Liu
Abstract Tunicamycin inhibits the first step of protein N-glycosylation modification. However, the physiological, transcriptomic, and N-glycomic effects of tunicamycin on important marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum are still unknown. In this study, comprehensive approaches were used to study the effects of tunicamycin stress. The results showed that cell growth and photosynthesis were significantly inhibited in P. tricornutum under the tunicamycin stress. The soluble protein content was significantly decreased, while the soluble sugar and neutral lipid were...

Cindy Jones, Meiling Qi, Zihui Xie, Wendy Moyle, Benjamin Weeks & Ping Li
This study performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the health effects of Baduanjin exercise on adults aged 65 years and older. Chinese and English databases were electronically searched using search terms related to the PICO model from inception through June 2021. The study quality assessment and meta-analysis were conducted using the PEDro scale and RevMan 5.4 software. Eleven included Chinese studies, published between 2015 and 2021, recruited participants from the mainland of China....

Implementing tuberculosis patient cost surveys in resource-constrained settings: lessons from Tanzania

Andrew Martin Kilale, Charles Makasi, Melkisedeck Majaha, Chacha Dionis Manga, Sylvia Haule, Pudensiana Hilary, Omari Kimbute, Stephen Kitua, Bhavin Jani, Nyagosya Range, Bernard Ngowi, Emmanuel Nkiligi, Emmanuel Matechi, Wilbard Muhandiki, Vishnu Mahamba, Beatrice Mutayoba & Julia Ershova
Abstract Tuberculosis (TB) disproportionally affects persons and families who are economically and socially disadvantaged. Therefore, a patient cost survey was conducted in Tanzania to evaluate the costs incurred by patients and their households before and after the diagnosis of TB. It was the first survey in Tanzania to ascertain baseline information and experience for subsequent surveys. This paper aims to share the experience encountered during the survey to ensure a standardized approach and elimination of...

Decoding the colorectal cancer ecosystem emphasizes the cooperative role of cancer cells, TAMs and CAFsin tumor progression

Rongfang Shen, Ping Li, Botao Zhang, Lin Feng & Shujun Cheng
Abstract Background Single-cell transcription data provided unprecedented molecular information, enabling us to directly encode the ecosystem of colorectal cancer (CRC). Characterization of the diversity of epithelial cells and how they cooperate with tumor microenvironment cells (TME) to endow CRC with aggressive characteristics at single-cell resolution is critical for the understanding of tumor progression mechanism. Methods In this study, we comprehensively analyzed the single-cell transcription data, bulk-RNA sequencing data and pathological tissue data. In detail, cellular...

Early-life antibiotic exposure increases the risk of childhood overweight and obesity in relation to dysbiosis of gut microbiota: a birth cohort study

Ping Li, Xuelian Chang, Xiaoyu Chen, Chuan Wang, Yu Shang, Dongyi Zheng & Kemin Qi
Abstract Background Early-life antibiotic exposure is associated with the development of later obesity through the disruption of gut microbiota in the animal models. However, the related epidemiological evidence is still conflicting. Methods A birth cohort was consisted of 2140 mother-infant pairs in Chaoyang District Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital in this study. Here, their available antibiotic exposure during the first one year of life was ascertained using a open-ended questionnaire and related anthropometric parameters...

Predictive Value of Adenoid-Nasopharyngeal Ratio in the Diagnosis of Secretory Otitis Media

Ping Li, Tao Li, Liang Yu, Aiping Chen, Yisha Wu, Yuzhu Wan & Li Shi
ObjectivesTo explore the associated factors of otitis media with effusion (OME) and analyze the diagnostic value of the adenoid-nasopharyngeal (A/N) ratio to OME.MethodsPatients with adenoid hypertrophy (AH) recently in 2 years were collected, including sex, age, duration, with/without rhinosinusitis, and examination results, including Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) sinus imaging, tympanometry, pure tone audiometry (PTA), blood test, and allergen detection. According to Liden/Jerger’s classification, the patients were divided into two groups: Type B and type...

Chemometrics integrated with in silico pharmacology to reveal antioxidative and anti-inflammatory markers of dandelion for its quality control

Feng-Jie Liu, Jiao Yang, Xu-Yan Chen, Ting Yu, Hui Ni, Liang Feng, Ping Li & Hui-Jun Li
Abstract Background Dandelion is an herb with high nutritional and medicinal values, which has been listed in Chinese Pharmacopeia, European Pharmacopoeia and British Pharmacopoeia, gaining increasing acceptance around the world. However, the current quality control of dandelion is lagging behind. Only in Chinese Pharmacopeia, cichoric acid is used as a marker compound for its quality evaluation, whereas, it can not comprehensively reflect the bioactivity of dandelion. Methods This study developed a strategy by integrating chemometrics...

Copy number variant analysis for syndromic congenital heart disease in the Chinese population

Ping Li, Weicheng Chen, Mengru Li, Zhengshan Zhao, Zhiyu Feng, Han Gao, Meijiao Suo, Ziqing Xu, Guixiang Tian, Feizhen Wu, Sheng Wei & Guoying Huang
Abstract Background Syndromic congenital heart disease (CHD) is among the most severe conditions in the pediatric population. Copy number variant (CNV) is an important cause of syndromic CHD, but few studies focused on CNVs related to these patients in China. The present study aimed to identify pathogenic CNVs associated with syndromic CHD in the Chinese population. Methods A total of 109 sporadic patients with syndromic CHD were applied chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA). Phenotype spectrum of...

Jinfeng Peng, Jingyuan Nie, Xiaochen Chen, Liyuan Zhang, Xiaohui Yao, Ping Li, Huicong Shi, Congfeng Song & Hansong Dong
Abstract Transcription activator-like effectors (TALEs) produced by plant pathogenic bacteria mainly belonging to the genus Xanthomonas cause plant diseases through activation of host susceptibility genes in plant cell nuclei. How TALEs enter plant cell nuclei was not clear until recent studies about PthXo1 and TALI, two TALEs produced by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) and X. oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc), the rice (Oryza sativa) pathogens that cause bacterial blight and bacterial leaf streak, respectively. Here,...
