To determine whether zinc finger protein 521 (Zfp521) has a chondroprotective effect by maintaining extracellular matrix (ECM) homeostasis to attenuate osteoarthritis (OA). In chondrocytes, Zfp521 was overexpressed or silenced to detect its effects on proliferation, apoptosis, and ECM homeostasis. Adenovirus encoding Zfp521 was injected into the knee joints of anterior cruciate ligament transection rats to test its efficacy against OA. Combined with proteomic analysis, the molecular mechanism of Zfp521 in cartilage degeneration was further explored....

Ibuprofen promotes p75 neurotrophin receptor expression through modifying promoter methylation and N6-methyladenosine-RNA-methylation in human gastric cancer cells

Haifeng Jin, Zheng Wu, Bibo Tan, Zhen Liu, Zhanfei Zu, Xiaoyun Wu, Yuwang Bi & Xingmao Hu
It is acknowledged that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can participate in various signaling pathways, while information about their epigenetic effects are limited. p75NTR (p75 neurotrophin receptor) can inhibit tumor growth by inducing cell cycle arrest and regulating cell cycle arrest and apoptotic cell death. The expression of p75NTR is influenced by epigenetic roles. We explored the effects of ibuprofen on p75NTR expression and investigated whether promoter methylation and N6-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA methylation regulates this process...

Few reports have compared bovine perirenal and intramuscular adipocyte transcriptomes using the combined analysis of transcriptomes and lipid metabolism to explore differences in adipogenic characteristics. We identified perirenal preadipocytes (PRA) and intramuscular preadipocytes (IMA) in Qinchuan cattle. We found that IMA were highly prolific in the early...

Analysis of the different characteristics between omental preadipocytes and differentiated white adipocytes using bioinformatics methods

Xinyu Yang, Lu Li, Canming Xu, Meichen Pi, Changhua Wang & Yemin Zhang
Obesity is emerging as an epidemiological issue, being associated with the onset and progress of various metabolism-related disorders. Obesity is characterized by the white adipose expansion, which encounters white adipocyte hypertrophy and hyperplasia. White adipocyte hyperplasia is defined as adipogenesis with the increase in the number of the white adipocytes from the preadipocytes. Adipogenesis contributes to distributing excess triglycerides among the smaller newly formed adipocytes, reducing the number of hypertrophic adipocytes and secreting anti-inflammatory factor....

Complete trajectory extraction for moving targets in traffic scenes that considers multi-level semantic features

Xiaoyue Luo, Yanhui Wang, Junwu Dong, Zhanxing Li, Yang Yang, Ke Tang & Tao Huang
Complex traffic scenes are susceptible to the occlusion of moving targets and blurred target images, resulting in incomplete extraction of target trajectories within the field of view (FOV). To address this issue, we proposed a complete trajectory extraction algorithm for moving targets (TraEA) that considers the multi-level semantic features of traffic scenes following the FOV of single-camera surveillance videos. TraEA utilizes semantic information from the multi-level scene structure, such as image pixel features, geometric features,...
