Cessation of collisional tectonism and rapid crustal uplift recorded by 430–420 Ma igneous rocks in the South Kunlun belt, northwest China

Jing Chen, Bing-Zhang Wang, Fu-Cheng Yu, Jie Han & Wu-Fu Li
The Wanbaogou granitic plutons are exposed along with coeval volcanic rocks, and provide an opportunity to investigate Silurian tectonism in the South Kunlun belt, northwest China. This study presents new whole-rock geochemical, and zircon U–Pb geochronological and Lu–Hf isotope data for Silurian intrusive rocks of the Wanbaogou area. We analysed four samples: a porphyritic monzogranite and dioritic dike from the Wanbaogou pluton and a granodiorite and monzogranite from the Wudaogou pluton. Zircon U–Pb dating yielded...

Proteomic signatures predict preeclampsia in individual cohorts but not across cohorts – implications for clinical biomarker studies

Mohammad S. Ghaemi, Adi L. Tarca, Roberto Romero, Natalie Stanley, Ramin Fallahzadeh, Athena Tanada, Anthony Culos, Kazuo Ando, Xiaoyuan Han, Yair J. Blumenfeld, Maurice L. Druzin, Yasser Y. El-Sayed, Ronald S. Gibbs, Virginia D. Winn, Kevin Contrepois, Xuefeng B. Ling, Ronald J. Wong, Gary M. Shaw, David K. Stevenson, Brice Gaudilliere, Nima Aghaeepour & Martin S. Angst
Early identification of pregnant women at risk for preeclampsia (PE) is important, as it will enable targeted interventions ahead of clinical manifestations. The quantitative analyses of plasma proteins feature prominently among molecular approaches used for risk prediction. However, derivation of protein signatures of sufficient predictive power has been challenging. The recent availability of platforms simultaneously assessing over 1000 plasma proteins offers broad examinations of the plasma proteome, which may enable the extraction of proteomic signatures...

Gestational hypertensive disease and birthweight discordance in twin pregnancies: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Yuan Wang, Hongying Zeng, Jing Liu & Feng Zhang
The objective of this systematic review was to explore the association between gestational hypertensive disease (GHD) and birthweight discordance in twin pregnancies. PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and Cochrane Library were systematically searched for studies reporting the risk of birthweight discordance in twin pregnancies complicated compared with those not complicated by GHD from establishment until July 2021. Risk of bias was assessed with the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale. According to the classification of GHD, sub-group analyses reporting...

Identification and validation of potential mRNA- microRNA- long-noncoding RNA (mRNA-miRNA-lncRNA) prognostic signature for cervical cancer

Jie Wang & Chen Zhang
Cervical cancer is one of the most common causes of cancer deaths in women due to poor prognosis and high mortality rates. A novel mRNA-miRNA-lncRNA signature linked to prognosis of cervical cancer is needed to help clinicians judge the prognosis of individual patients more accurately. On the basis of GEO datasets, a total of 161 upregulated and 242 downregulated DE-mRNAs were identified firstly. Among them, eight potential biomarkers were found to have prognostic values with...

A Q-Theory of Banks

Juliane Beganau, Saki Bigio, Jeremy Majerovitz & Matías Vieyra
"The Great Recession in 2009 forced researchers and policy-makers to rethink regulations of the financial system. There has been a renewed effort to understand the behaviour of banks, their objectives and constraints, and their role in the economy. This paper contributes to that end by studying how banks react to changes in the value of their assets (generated, for example, by defaults on their loans). We argue that it is important to distinguish between the...

In-hospital acute kidney injury and atrial fibrillation: incidence, risk factors, and outcome

Guoqin Wang, Lijiao Yang, Nan Ye, Weijing Bian, Changsheng Ma, Dong Zhao, Jing Liu, Yongchen Hao, Na Yang & Hong Cheng
The incidence and the risk factors of in-hospitalized acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients hospitalized for atrial fibrillation (AF) were unclear. The Improving Care for Cardiovascular Disease in China-AF (CCC-AF) project is an ongoing registry and quality improvement project, with 240 hospitals recruited across China. We selected 4527 patients hospitalized for AF registered in the CCC-AF from January 2015 to January 2019. Patients were divided into the AKI and non-AKI groups according to the changes...

Huge sedimentary hiatus in the southern margin of the North China Craton from mid-Mesoproterozoic to Neoproterozoic

Pengfei Zuo, Yu Li, Haihua Cheng, Christopher J. Spencer, Fengbo Sun, Shiyan Wang & Deshun Zheng
The Meso- to Neoproterozoic Eras were characterized by environmental, evolutionary, and lithospheric stability in the North China Craton (NCC). It is controversial that huge uplift(s) occurred in the North China Craton during this period. The southern NCC developed early terrestrial deposition in the late-Paleoproterozoic and glacial sequence in the late Neoproterozoic record integrated geological history of the NCC in the intervening interval. Geochemistry compositions of mid-Mesoproterozoic carbonaceous slates (ca. 1330 Ma) show similar provenances to...

Investigating genetic diversity and population phylogeny of five Chongqing local chicken populations autosomal using microsatellites

Xue Yang, Cheng-Li Liu, Bai-Gao Yang, Hai-Qiang Hu, Gong Ying, Guo Yi, Bo-Er Chen, Ying Yuan, He Yong-Meng, Wei-Yi Zhang, Dan-Ping Zhang, Guang-Xin E. & Ming-Hui Li
The genetic diversity and population structures of five Chongqing local chicken populations were investigated using by 24 microsatellite markers. Results revealed that the mean number of alleles (NA) ranged from 7.08 (Daninghe chicken, DN) to 8.46 (Nanchuan chicken, NC). The highest observed heterozygosity (HO) and expected heterozygosity (HE) were observed in DN (HO = 0.7252; HE = 0.7409) and the lowest HO and HE were observed in XS (Xiushan native chicken [XS], HO = 0.5910...

The predictive value of diabetic retinopathy on subsequent diabetic nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies

Yu Li, Xiaoxuan Su, Qing Ye, Xiaodan Guo, Bo Xu, Tianjun Guan & Anqun Chen
This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess the predictive value of diabetic retinopathy (DR) on further diabetic nephropathy (DN) risk in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) based on the prospective cohort studies. PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched for eligible prospective cohort studies through March 2020. The predictive value of DR was assessed using sensitivity, specificity, positive likelihood ratio (PLR) and negative likelihood ratio (NLR), diagnostic odds ratio (DOR), and...

Optimization of the extraction conditions and dermal toxicity of oil body fused with acidic fibroblast growth factor (OLAF)

Yongxin Guo, Yaying Li, Qian Wu, Xinxin Lan, Guodong Chu, Weidong Qiang, Muhammad Noman, Tingting Gao, Jinnan Guo, Long Han, Jing Yang, Xiaokun Li & Linna Du
Oil body (OB), a subcellular organelle that stores oil in plant seeds, is considered a new transdermal drug delivery system. With the increasing understanding of the OB and its main protein (oleosin), numerous studies have been conducted on OB as “carrier” for the expression of exogenous proteins. In our previous study, oil body fused with aFGF (OLAF) was obtained using a plant oil body expression system that had been preliminarily proven to be effective in...

Oxidative stress-related genes (EPHX1 and MnSOD) polymorphism and risk of pre-eclampsia: a meta-analysis

Ge Zhao, Jing Liu & Tao Meng
Previous studies have detected the association of polymorphisms in oxidative stress-related genes EPHX1 and MnSOD with pre-eclampsia (PE) risk, but the results are inconsistent among studies. Thus, a meta-analysis was performed to obtain more conclusive results. Eligible studies were retrieved in PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, Scopus, and CNKI. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were utilized to evaluate the relationship between EPHX1 rs1051740, EPHX1 rs2234922, MnSOD rs4880 polymorphisms, and PE susceptibility in...
