Abstract Background Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies (ANCA) associated glomerulonephritis (AGN) is a group of autoimmune diseases and mono-macrophages are involved in its glomerular injuries. In this study, we aim to investigate the role of CD206+ mono-macrophages in AGN. Methods 27 AGN patients (14 active AGN, 13 remissive AGN) together with healthy controls (n = 9), disease controls (n = 6) and kidney function adjusted controls (n = 9) from Department of Nephrology, Ruijin hospital were recruited....

Cross-watershed distribution pattern challenging the elimination of Oncomelania hupensis, the intermediate host of Schistosoma japonica, in Sichuan province, China

Shen Chen, Ding Lu, Lei Duan, Ben Ma, Chao Lv, Yin-long Li, Shen-ning Lu, Lan-hua Li, Liang Xu, Zi-song Wu, Shang Xia, Jing Xu, Yang Liu & Shan Lv
Abstract Background Snail control is critical to schistosomiasis control efforts in China. However, re-emergence of Oncomelania hupensis is challenging the achievements of schistosomiasis control. The present study aimed to test whether the amphibious snails can spread across watersheds using a combination of population genetics and geographic statistics. Methods The digital maps and attributes of snail habitats were obtained from the national survey on O. hupensis. Snail sampling was performed in 45 counties of Sichuan Province....

Neuregulin-4 attenuates diabetic cardiomyopathy by regulating autophagy via the AMPK/mTOR signalling pathway

Hongchao Wang, Lijie Wang, Fuli Hu, Pengfei Wang, Yanan Xie, Fang Li & Bingyan Guo
Abstract Background Diabetic cardiomyopathy is characterized by left ventricle dysfunction, cardiomyocyte apoptosis, and interstitial fibrosis and is a serious complication of diabetes mellitus (DM). Autophagy is a mechanism that is essential for maintaining normal heart morphology and function, and its dysregulation can produce pathological effects on diabetic hearts. Neuregulin-4 (Nrg4) is an adipokine that exerts protective effects against metabolic disorders and insulin resistance. The aim of this study was to explore whether Nrg4 could ameliorate...

Tumour-associated macrophages enhance breast cancer malignancy via inducing ZEB1-mediated DNMT1 transcriptional activation

Zhongwei Li, Pengfei Wang, Wenjie Cui, Hongmei Yong, Diandian Wang, Tiesuo Zhao, Wenwen Wang, Ming Shi, Junnian Zheng & Jin Bai
Abstract Background DNMT1 has been shown to be highly expressed in a variety of cancers, including breast cancer. However, the mechanism is not very clear. Therefore, we aim to reveal the mechanism of DNMT1 highly express in breast cancer. And we also want to explore the role of DNMT1 in tumour microenvironment promoting breast cancer progression. Results In this study, we demonstrate that DNMT1 is overexpressed in breast cancer and that DNMT1 promotes breast cancer...

Enhanced self-powered ion-modulated photodetector based on an asymmetric composite structure of superionic conductor RbAg4I5 and graphene

Pengfei Wang, Duanhao Huang, Hao Liu, Yu Liu, Jun Yin, feng huang & Jia-Lin Sun
Traditional strategies for self-powered devices face limitations in the performance improvement due to trade-off relationship between different parameters. Here, a new kind of ion-modulation self-powered photodetector is first proposed and fabricated by depositing superionic conductor RbAg4I5 on one side of monolayer graphene. The graphene homojunction is successfully formed at the boundary of asymmetric structure due to the formation of bound states of ions and electrons at the contact interface. This kind of homojunction avoids trade...

Phase error model and compensation method for reflectivity and distance discontinuities in fringe projection profilometry

Changping Hu, shuntao liu, Dan Wu & Jing Xu
Phase shifting fringe projection profilometry is a widely used optical 3D surface measurement method due to its high resolution, high speed, and full-field inspection. However, the measurement accuracy decreases in regions with a reflectivity or distance discontinuity. To this end, first, a general continuous quasi-one-dimensional phase error model is proposed for discontinuity representation. Second, the discontinuities are further divided into degenerate and nondegenerate discontinuities to improve the computational speed. Third, a phase error compensation algorithm...

Inhibition of sphingolipid metabolism in osteosarcoma protects against CD151-mediated tumorigenicity

Hongsheng Wang, Xinmeng Jin, Yangfeng Zhang, Zhuoying Wang, Tao Zhang, Jing Xu, Jiakang Shen, Pengfei Zan, Mengxiong Sun, Chongren Wang, Yingqi Hua, Xiaojun Ma & Wei Sun
Abstract Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone tumor, with a poor prognosis owing to the lack of efficient molecular-based targeted therapies. Previous studies have suggested an association between CD151 and distinct consequences in osteosarcoma tumorigenicity. However, the potential of CD151 as a therapeutic target has not yet been sufficiently explored. Here, we performed integrated transcriptomic and metabolomic analyses of osteosarcoma and identified sphingolipid metabolism as the top CD151-regulated pathway. CD151 regulates sphingolipid metabolism primarily...

Abstract Background The dried stem of Cistanche, is a famous Chinese traditional medicine. The main active pharmacodynamic components are phenylethanol glycosides (PhGs). Cistanche tubulosa produces higher level of PhGs in its stems than that of Cistanche deserticola. However, the key genes in the PhGs biosynthesis pathway is not clear in C. tubulosa. Results In this study, we performed the full-length transcriptome sequencing and gene expression profiling of C. tubulosa using PacBio combined with BGISEQ-500 RNA-seq...
