The structures of 1 − 4 were unambiguously elucidated by comprehensive spectroscopic analyses. Abietane diterpenoids were isolated from the plant for the first time. All isolates were tested for their neuroprotective activities against H2O2-induced SH-SY5Y cells injury, and compound 2 showed moderate effect at the concentrations ranging from 5 ∼ 20...

Timosaponin B-II alleviates osteoarthritis-related inflammation and extracellular matrix degradation through inhibition of mitogen-activated protein kinases and nuclear factor-κB pathways in vitro

Xinwei Liu, Dulei Xiang, Wenming Jin, Gen Zhao, Han Li, Bing Xie & Xiaochuan Gu
Osteoarthritis (OA), an inflammatory response in chondrocytes, leads to extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation and cartilage destruction. Timosaponin B-II (TB-II) is the main bioactive component of Rhizoma Anemarrhenae with reported antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. This study investigated the anti-OA function and mechanism of TB-II on IL-1β-stimulated SW1353 cells and primary rat chondrocytes. We firstly screened the concentration of TB-II in SW1353 cells and primary rat chondrocytes using CCK-8 assay. Thereafter, SW1353 cells and chondrocytes were, respectively,...

Atg1-mediated Atg11 phosphorylation is required for selective autophagy by regulating its association with receptor proteins

Weijing Yao, Yixing Li, Yingcong Chen, Yuting Chen, Yu Xie, Miaojuan Ye, Ying Zhang, Xiangjun Chen, Xiaoyong Wu, Yuyao Feng, Zhi Hong, Yigang Wang, Wei Liu & Cong Yi
Atg11 is an adaptor protein required for the induction of selective autophagy via receptor binding. However, our understanding of the molecular mechanisms by which it regulates selective autophagy remains incomplete. Here, we show that Atg11 is phosphorylated by Atg1. Rapamycin treatment or starvation conditions induced slower electrophoretic mobility of Atg11 in an Atg1 kinase activity-dependent manner. Through in vitro kinase assays combined with mutagenesis, we determined that Atg1 phosphorylates S949, S1057, and S1064 residues in...

Nitric oxide generated by Piriformospora indica-induced nitrate reductase promotes tobacco growth by regulating root architecture and ammonium and nitrate transporter gene expression

Han Li, Shenghua Fu, Jingwei Zhu, Weichang Gao, Lin Chen, Xiang Li, Shaoyu Zhang, Sha Zheng, Heng Zhang & Yanxia Liu
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved not only in the regulation of plant growth, development, and stress responses but also in the regulation of plant-microbe interactions. Here, we demonstrate that Piriformospora indica can induce tobacco nitrate reductase to produce a NO signal in roots which enhances nitrogen uptake capacity by inducing the expression of ammonium and nitrate transporter genes and the development of lateral root and root hair, thereby promoting tobacco growth. In addition, the NO...

Cuddy, Surendra Dasari, April Chiu, Lauren A. Choate, Ellen D. McPhail, Haili Cui, Hui Chen, Eric J. Burks, Vaishali Sanchorawala & Lawreen H. Connors
β2-microglobulin amyloidosis was first described in the 1980s as a protein deposition disease associated with long-term haemodialysis. More recently, two inherited forms resulting from separate point mutations in the β2-microglobulin gene have been identified. In this report, we detail a novel β2M variant, P32L, caused by a unique dinucleotide mutation that is linked to systemic hereditary β2-microglobulin amyloidosis. Three family members from a Portuguese kinship featured cardiomyopathy, requiring organ transplantation in one case, along with...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Poor prognosis and low survival rates have driven the development of novel therapeutic strategies. Nanosecond pulsed electric field has emerged as a novel, minimal invasive and non-thermal treatment for solid tumors. It is of great significance to study the combination therapy of nsPEF and other treatment strategies for pancreatic cancer. We developed neutrophil membrane-wrapped liposomal nanoparticles loaded with gemcitabine (NE/Lip-GEM) and investigated their...

Blocking circadian clock factor Rev-erbα inhibits growth plate chondrogenesis via up-regulating MAPK-ERK1/2 pathway

Zhuang Qian, Zhen Liu, Zhenhua Feng, Zhenning Cai, Yong Qiu & Zezhang Zhu
Emerging evidence indicated circadian clock gene Rev-erbα was involved in cartilage metabolism, however the contribution of Rev-erbα to growth plate chondrogenesis remains unknown. Here, we found that Rev-erbα exhibited the spatiotemporal expression model in growth plate. Moreover, Rev-erbα antagonist SR8278 inhibited longitudinal elongation of metatarsal bone ex vivo. And morphological analysis exhibited SR8278 led to the reduced height of growth plate and hypertrophic zone. Furthermore, blocking Rev-erbα suppressed the proliferation and hypertrophic differentiation of chondrocytes...

Aggregation-induced emission tetraphenylethylene derivative as optical sensor for ammonia detection

Shoubin Zhang, Di Zhao, Liuyi Xiong, Yufeng Hu, Zhidong Lou, Yanbing Hou, Feng Teng & Qiuhong Cui
We propose a general approach for the achievement of optical sensors, where ammonia can be rapidly identified and detected through visible fluorescence changes. Here, a tetraphenylethylene derivative with carboxyl groups named TPE-2CA (4,4ʹ-(1,2-Diphenylethene-1,2-diyl) dibenzoyl acid) was applied in the sensor. The AIE (aggregation-induced emission) property of tetraphenylethylene structure provides the samples with excellent luminescent performance in aggregated state. The reaction between carboxyl groups and ammonia causes the shifts on luminescence spectra of the samples. Consequently,...

The demonstration of batch-to-batch consistency is indispensable for quality control of vaccines. We conducted a randomized, double-blind, parallel-controlled trial to evaluate the immunogenicity consistency of a single shot of Ad5-nCoV in healthy adults who had not previously received any COVID-19 vaccine. All eligible participants were randomly assigned equally to receive one of the three consecutive batches of Ad5-nCoV (5 × 1010 viral particles/vial, 0.5 mL). The primary endpoint was geometric mean titers (GMTs) of serum...

An Additive Graphical Model for Discrete Data

Jun Tao, Bing Li & Lingzhou Xue
We introduce a nonparametric graphical model for discrete node variables based on additive conditional independence. Additive conditional independence is a three-way statistical relation that shares similar properties with conditional independence by satisfying the semi-graphoid axioms. Based on this relation we build an additive graphical model for discrete variables that does not suffer from the restriction of a parametric model such as the Ising model. We develop an estimator of the new graphical model via the...
