miR-152-3p aggravates vascular endothelial cell dysfunction by targeting DEAD-box helicase 6 (DDX6) under hypoxia

Zhongyan Zhao, Chanji Wu, Xiangying He, Eryi Zhao, Shijun Hu, Yeguang Han, Ting Wang, Yanquan Chen, Tao Liu & Shixiong Huang
Stroke is a main cause of disability and death worldwide, and ischemic stroke accounts for most stroke cases. Recently, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been verified to play critical roles in the development of stroke. Herein, we explored effects of miR-152-3p on vascular endothelial cell functions under hypoxia. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were treated with hypoxia to mimic cell injury in vitro. Reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction revealed that miR-152-3p exhibited high expression in...

Construction of a novel risk model based on the random forest algorithm to distinguish pancreatic cancers with different prognoses and immune microenvironment features

Yalan Lei, Rong Tang, Jin Xu, Bo Zhang, Jiang Liu, Chen Liang, Qingcai Meng, Jie Hua, Xianjun Yu, Wei Wang & Si Shi
Immune-related long noncoding RNAs (irlncRNAs) are actively involved in regulating the immune status. This study aimed to establish a risk model of irlncRNAs and further investigate the roles of irlncRNAs in predicting prognosis and the immune landscape in pancreatic cancer. The transcriptome profiles and clinical information of 176 pancreatic cancer patients were retrieved from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Immune-related genes (irgenes) downloaded from ImmPort were used to screen 1903 immune-related lncRNAs (irlncRNAs) using Pearson’s...

Predictive factors associated with disease recurrence in patients with severe intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy: a retrospective study of 118 cases

Ting Wang, Weixiao Zhou, Ruoan Jiang, Jianbo Lai, Peiyue Jiang, Xinning Chen & Baohua Li
To compare the clinical characteristics of pregnant women and perinatal outcomes with or without recurrent severe intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (sICP), and identify possible factors associated with disease recurrence. A retrospective study of 164,603 deliveries was performed to identify pregnant women diagnosed with sICP in the previous pregnancy from January 2012 to December 2020. Eligible patients were divided into two subgroups according to the status of disease recurrence in the second pregnancy: recurrent severe ICP...

Long non-coding RNA RP11-283G6.5 confines breast cancer development through modulating miR-188-3p/TMED3/Wnt/β-catenin signalling

Jing Pei, Shengquan Zhang, Xiaowei Yang, Chunguang Han, Yubo Pan, Jun Li, Zhaorui Wang, Chenyu Sun & Jing Zhang
The contributions of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) to breast cancer are critical areas of investigation. In this study, we identified a novel lncRNA RP11-283G6.5 which was lowly expressed in breast cancer and whose low expression was correlated with poor overall survival and disease-free survival of breast cancer patients. Functional experiments revealed that ectopic expression of RP11-283G6.5 confined breast cancer cellular growth, migration, and invasion, and promoted cellular apoptosis. Conversely, RP11-283G6.5 silencing facilitated...

Comparative analysis of circRNA expression profile and circRNA-miRNA-mRNA regulatory network between palmitic and stearic acid-induced lipotoxicity to pancreatic β cells

Yunjin Zhang, Qingrui Zhao, Shenghan Su, Lingfeng Dan, Xuebei Li, Yu Wang, Yuqing Lin, Zhen Tian, Changhao Sun & Huimin Lu
Chronic exposure to high concentrations of circulating palmitic acid and stearic acid leads to impaired β cell function, which accelerates the development of type 2 diabetes. However, differences in the mechanisms underlying this process between these two saturated fatty acids remain largely unknown. In this study, we screened for potential circular RNAs (circRNAs) and their associated regulatory pathways in palmitic acid- and stearic acid-induced mouse β-TC6 cell dysfunction. CircRNA high-throughput sequencing, gene ontology enrichment and...

In the present study, a total of 7793 samples from 5 different types of hosts were collected and tested, with a seroprevalence of 2.4% (184/7793). Although the seroprevalence of human and animal brucellosis is relatively low, numbers of human brucellosis cases reported have increased continuously from 2004 to 2018. A total of 118 Brucella strains containing 4 biotypes were obtained, including Brucella melitensis bv.1 (n = 8) and bv.3 (n = 106), Brucella abortus bv.3...

Down-regulation of HLA-DRs and HLA-DPs reflects the deficiency of antigen-presenting cells in endometrium from infertile women with and without ovarian endometriosis

Li Jiang, Xi Wang, Tingting Zhang, Huan Chen, Zhangming Wei, Tianjiao Li, Yuqing Wu, Zeying Li & Xiaoling Fang
This study aimed to explore common molecular changes in the infertile endometrium from women with and without endometriosis (EM). By analyzing the dataset GSE120103 from Gene Expression Omnibus, a total of 3252 shared differentially expressed genes were identified between ovarian EM in infertile vs. fertile endometrium and EM-free infertile vs. fertile endometrium. In addition, the gene annotation and pathway analysis of the shared differentially expressed genes with the same expression trend indicated that the pathway...

The synaptic marker neurogranin as a disease state biomarker in Alzheimer’s disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Zhibin Wang, Jianwei Yang, Wei Zhu, Yi Tang & Jianping Jia
Objective: Synaptic degeneration is the pathologic foundation of cognitive decline in the Alzheimer’s disease (AD) continuum. We aimed to determine whether cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) synaptic marker neurogranin (Ng) is a disease state or a disease stage biomarker in the AD continuum. Methods: Studies comparing CSF Ng levels among AD, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and healthy participants were included. Studies were eligible if the correlation between CSF Ng levels and Mini-Mental Status Examination (MMSE) scores was...

Bioinformatics analysis reveals the competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) coexpression network in the tumor microenvironment and prognostic biomarkers in soft tissue sarcomas

Dandan Zou, Yang Wang, Meng Wang, Bo Zhao, Fei Hu, Yanguo Li & Bingming Zhang
Soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) are rare, heterogeneous mesenchymal neoplasias. Understanding the tumor microenvironment (TME) and identifying potential biomarkers for prognosis associated with the TME of STS might provide effective clues for immune therapy. We evaluated the immune scores and stromal scores of STS patients by using the RNA sequencing dataset from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and the ESTIMATE algorithm. Then, the differentially expressed mRNAs (DEGs), miRNAs (DEMs) and lncRNAs (DELs) were identified after...

An infectious clone of enterovirus 71(EV71) that is capable of infecting neonatal immune competent mice without adaptive mutations

Huiying Zhang, Zhigang Song, Jingyi Zou, Yanling Feng, Jing Zhang, Lehao Ren, Xiaonan Zhang, Yunwen Hu, Zhenghong Yuan & Zhigang Yi
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is a major pathogen that causes hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), which is a life threatening disease in certain children. The pathogenesis of EV71-caused HFMD is poorly defined due to the lack of simple and robust animal models with severe phenotypes that recapitulate symptoms observed in humans. Here, we generated the infectious clone of a clinical isolate from a severe HFMD patient. Virus rescued from the cDNA clone was infectious in...
