HIF-1α promotes the keloid development through the activation of TGF-β/Smad and TLR4/MyD88/NF-κB pathways

Rui Lei, Jian Li, Feng Liu, Weihan Li, Shizhen Zhang, Yang Wang, Xi Chu & Jinghong Xu
A keloid is defined as an overgrowth of the dense fibrous tissues that form around a wound. Since they destroy the vascular network, keloid tissues often exhibit anoxic conditions. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is a core factor that mediates hypoxia stress responses and regulates the hypoxic cellular and biological behaviors. In this study, we found that the expression level of HIF-1α in keloid tissue was significantly higher than that in the normal skin tissue. Hypoxia-induced HIF-1α...

miR-342-5p inhibits osteosarcoma cell growth, migration, invasion, and sensitivity to Doxorubicin through targeting Wnt7b

Qing Liu, Zhenting Wang, Xiaohua Zhou, Mingying Tang, Wei Tan, Tianshi Sun & Youwen Deng
Osteosarcoma (OS) accounts for 9 percent of cancer-related deaths in young people. The PI3K/Akt signaling, a well-known carcinogenic signaling pathway in human cancer, cooperates with other signaling pathways such as Wnt signaling to promote cancer progression. Wnt7b, as a transforming member of the Wnt family, could activate mTORC1 through PI3K-AKT signaling and is upregulated in OS. In the present study, we found that miR-342-5p inhibits Wnt7b expression via direct binding to Wnt7b 3′-UTR. miR-342-5p overexpression...

Preventing Candida albicans from subverting host plasminogen for invasive infection treatment

Si-Min Chen, Zui Zou, Shi-Yu Guo, Wei-Tong Hou, Xi-Ran Qiu, Yu Zhang, Li-Jun Song, Xin-Yu Hu, Yuan-Ying Jiang, Hui Shen & Mao-Mao An
Candida albicans is a common fungal pathogen in humans that colonizes the skin and mucosal surfaces of the majority healthy individuals. How C. albicans disseminates into the bloodstream and causes life-threatening systemic infections in immunocompromised patients remains unclear. Plasminogen system activation can degrade a variety of structural proteins in vivo and is involved in several homeostatic processes. Here, for the first time, we characterized that C. albicans could capture and “subvert” host plasminogen to invade...

Yong Zhang, Jing-Jing Li, An-Jun Wang, Bo Wang, Shou-Liang Hu, Heng Zhang, Tian Li & Yan-Hong Tuo
Blood pressure (BP) variability is highly correlated with cardiovascular and kidney outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, appropriate BP targets in patients with CKD remain uncertain. We searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of CKD patients who underwent intensive BP management. Kappa score was used to assess inter-rater agreement. A good agreement between the authors was observed to inter-rater reliability of RCTs selection (kappa = 0.77;...

Functional convergence of gliP and aspf1 in Aspergillus fumigatus pathogenicity

Hong Liu, Wenjie Xu, Norma V. Solis, Carol Woolford, Aaron P. Mitchell & Scott G. Filler
Gliotoxin contributes to the virulence of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus in non-neutropenic mice that are immunosuppressed with corticosteroids. To investigate how the absence of gliotoxin affects both the fungus and the host, we used a nanoString nCounter to analyze their transcriptional responses during pulmonary infection of a non-neutropenic host with a gliotoxin-deficient ΔgliP mutant. We found that the ΔgliP mutation led to increased expression of aspf1, which specifies a secreted ribotoxin. Prior studies have shown...

Difficulties translating antisense-mediated activation of Frataxin expression from cell culture to mice

Audrius Kilikevicius, Jun Wang, Xiulong Shen, Frank Rigo, Thahza P. Prakash, Marek Napierala & David R. Corey
Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by decreased expression of frataxin (FXN) protein. Previous studies have shown that antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) and single-stranded silencing RNAs can be used to increase expression of frataxin in cultured patient-derived cells. In this study, we investigate the potential for oligonucleotides to increase frataxin expression in a mouse model for FA. After confirming successful in vivo delivery of oligonucleotides using a benchmark gapmer targeting the nuclear noncoding...

Neuropeptide Y in the amygdala contributes to neuropathic pain-like behaviors in rats via the neuropeptide Y receptor type 2/mitogen-activated protein kinase axis

Wenhui Yan, Wuchao Liu, Junlu Wu, Lipei Wu, Shihai Xuan, Weiwei Wang & Anquan Shang
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a highly conserved endogenous peptide in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which has been implicated in nociceptive signaling in neuropathic pain. However, downstream mechanistic actions remain uncharacterized. In this study, we sought to investigate the mechanism of NPY and its receptor NPY2R in the amygdala in rats with neuropathic pain-like behaviors induced by chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the sciatic nerve. The expression of NPY and NPY2R was found to...
