Prediction of clinical prognosis in cutaneous melanoma using an immune-related gene pair signature

Yu Yang, Xuan Long, Guiyun Li, Xiaohong Yu, Yu Liu, Kun Li & Xiaobin Tian
Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is a malignant and aggressive skin cancer that is the leading cause of skin cancer-related deaths. Increasing evidence shows that immunity plays a vital role in the prognosis of CM. In this study, we developed an immune-related gene pair (IRGP) signature to predict the clinical prognosis of patients with CM. Immune-related genes from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) databases were selected to construct the IRGPs, and...

Etomidate ameliorated advanced glycation end-products (AGEs)-induced reduction of extracellular matrix genes expression in chondrocytes

Xiaohua Sun, Jizheng Zhang, Yi Li, Wanlu Ren & Lijun Wang
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a rheumatic disease common in the elderly. AGEs are the end products of glycation reactions and play an important role in the development of OA. Etomidate is a general anesthesia-inducing agent recently reported to exert significant anti-inflammatory effects. The present study aims to explore the protective effect of Etomidate against advanced glycation end-products (AGEs)-induced reduction of extracellular matrix gene expression in chondrocytes. In the present study, we found that AGEs significantly reduced...

Distribution characteristics of microbial community structure in atmospheric particulates of the typical industrial city in Jiangsu province, China

Xingcheng Yuan, Guangchao Li, Weihua Yang & Dan Li
In this study, Xuzhou, a typical industrial city in the north of Jiangsu Province, was chosen to investigate the pollution level of atmospheric particulates. The proportion of fine particles (PM2.5) in PM10 is larger than that of coarse particles (about 58%). The physicochemical properties of PM2.5 were analyzed by SEM and EDS. DGGE was used to study the distribution characteristics of bacterial community structure on atmospheric particulates (TSP, PM2.5 and PM10) in different functional areas...

Increasing chitosanase production in Bacillus cereus by a novel mutagenesis and screen method

Chaozheng Zhang, Yi Li, Tianshuang Zhang & Hua Zhao
Chitosan hydrolysis by chitosanase is one of the most effective methods to produce chitosan oligosaccharides. One of the prerequisites of enzyme fermentation production is to select and breed enzyme-producing cells with good performance. So in the process of fermentation production, the low yield of chitosanase cannot meet the current requirement. In this paper, a strain producing chitosanase was screened and identified, and a novel mutagenesis system (Atmospheric and Room Temperature Plasma (ARTP)) was selected to...

Homeobox A5 activates p53 pathway to inhibit proliferation and promote apoptosis of adrenocortical carcinoma cells by inducing Aldo-Keto reductase family 1 member B10 expression

Danyan Chen, Zhaonan Shen, Xi Cheng, Qi Wang, Junlin Zhou, Fang Ren, Yue Sun, Hongman Wang & Rongxi Huang
Aldo-Keto Reductase Family 1 Member B10 (AKR1B10) and Homeobox A5 (HOXA5) are both down-regulated in adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC), and HOXA5 is predicted to bind to the promoter of AKR1B10. We aimed to investigate whether HOXA5 could bind to AKR1B10 to regulate ACC cells proliferation and apoptosis. The expression of AKR1B10 and HOXA5 in ACC patients and the relationship of their expression between ACC prognosis were evaluated by searching database. Then, NCI-H295R cells were overexpressed to...

Silencing of let-7b-5p inhibits ovarian cancer cell proliferation and stemness characteristics by Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp-box helicase 19A

Xiujuan Huang, Hongxia Dong, Yang Liu, Fen Yu, Shunshi Yang, Zhen Chen & Jueying Li
The emergence and recurrence of ovarian cancer are associated with ovarian cancer stem cells. For cancer treatment, gene delivery of microbubbles (MB)-mediated microRNA (miRNA) is considered as a promising approach. In this study, our aim is to investigate the effects of MB-mediated let-7b-5p inhibitor on the proliferation and stemness characteristics of ovarian cancer (OVCA) cells. Let-7b-5p inhibitor mediated by MB was prepared (termed MB-let-7b-5p inhibitor), and the effects of MB-let-7b-5p inhibitor and let-7b-5p inhibitor on...

Tumor-associated neutrophils activated by tumor-derived CCL20 (C-C motif chemokine ligand 20) promote T cell immunosuppression via programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) in breast cancer

Louis Boafo Kwantwi, Shujing Wang, Wenjun Zhang, Weidong Peng, Zeyu Cai, Youjing Sheng, Han Xiao, Xian Wang & Qiang Wu
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among women despite the significant improvement in diagnosis and treatment. Tumor-associated neutrophils have been shown to suppress antitumor functions of the host. However, how breast cancer tumor microenvironment influences the phenotype and functions of neutrophils to potentiate T cell immunosuppression is unknown. Herein, neutrophils isolated from peripheral blood of healthy donors were treated with supernatants from breast cancer cell lines or recombinant human CCL20. PD-L1 expression...

The significant immune escape of pseudotyped SARS-CoV-2 variant Omicron

Li Zhang, Qianqian Li, Ziteng Liang, Tao Li, Shuo Liu, Qianqian Cui, Jianhui Nie, Qian Wu, Xiaowang Qu, Weijin Huang & Youchun Wang
The emergence of Omicron/BA.1 has brought new challenges to fight against SARS-CoV-2. A large number of mutations in the Spike protein suggest that its susceptibility to immune protection elicited by the existing COVID-19 infection and vaccines may be altered. In this study, we constructed the pseudotyped SARS-CoV-2 variant Omicron. The sensitivity of 28 serum samples from COVID-19 convalescent patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 original strain was tested against pseudotyped Omicron as well as the other variants...

Identification of hepatocellular carcinoma-related genes associated with macrophage differentiation based on bioinformatics analyses

Jun Cao, Chi Zhang, Guo-Qing Jiang, Sheng-Jie Jin, Qian Wang, Ao-Qing Wang & Dou-Sheng Bai
Macrophage differentiation is associated with tumorigenesis, including the tumorigenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Herein, we explored the value of macrophage differentiation-associated genes (MDGs) in the prognosis of HCC using data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) databases. We performed multivariate Cox regression analyses to identify the hub genes affecting HCC patient prognoses. The correlations between hub genes and macrophage differentiation and immune checkpoint inhibitors (PD-1, PD-L1, and CTLA4)...

Multi-locus identification of Psilocybe cubensis by high-resolution melting (HRM)

Xiaochun Zhang, Huan Yu, Ziwei Wang, Qi Yang, Ruocheng Xia, Yiling Qu, Ruiyang Tao, Yan Shi, Ping Xiang, Suhua Zhang & Chengtao Li
Hallucinogenic mushroom is a kind of toxic strain containing psychoactive tryptamine substances such as psilocybin, psilocin and ibotenic acid, etc. The mushrooms containing hallucinogenic components are various, widely distributed and lack of standard to define, which made a great challenge to identification. Traditional identification methods, such as morphology and toxicology analysis, showed shortcomings in old or processed samples, while the DNA-based identification of hallucinogenic mushrooms would allow to identify these samples due to the stability...
