Cancer immunotherapy is a strategy that is moving to the frontier of cancer treatment in the current decade. In this study, we show evidence that 3-(2-nitrophenyl) propionic acid-paclitaxel nanoparticles (NPPA-PTX NPs), act as immunogenic cell death (ICD) inducers, stimulating an antitumor response which results in synergistic antitumor activity by combining anti-PD-L1 antibody (aPD-L1) in vivo. To investigate the antitumor immunity induced by NPPA-PTX NPs, the expression of both ICD marker calreticulin (CRT) and high mobility...

Β-Cyclodextrin-graft-poly(amidoamine) dendrons as the nitric oxide deliver system for the chronic rhinosinusitis therapy

Tao Liu, Guowei Li, Xidong Wu, Shaohua Chen, Siyi Zhang, Hong Han, Hongbin Zhang, Xiaoning Luo, Xiang Cai & Dong Ma
Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a rather prevalent condition with a chronic inflammatory process, which is hard to cure. Herein, a new antibacterial drug, nitric oxide (NO), was used for the attempt on CRS therapy. To achieve this, a star copolymer (β-CD-PAMAM) consisting of the β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) core and seven PAMAM-G3 arms, which was designed as a low-cytotoxicity and high NO loading carrier, were synthesized and characterizied. The obtained β-CD-PAMAM/NONOate showed the effect in inhibiting and...

Zhonghua Yu, Xiuxiang Lu, Jaehyuck Choi, Shulin Deng, Binghong Xiong, Wenge Zhang, Huan Wang, Sasa Wang & Haibo Tan
Foeniculins A-C (1–3) together with a pair of enantiomers (±)-foeniculin D (4) were isolated from endophytic fungus Diaporthe foeniculina BZM-15. Their structures including absolute configurations were unambiguously established by extensive interpretation of the NMR and HR-ESI-MS data, ECD measurements powered by molecular calculations, as well as Mo2(OAc)4 mediated CD methodology.

Acetylation-dependent regulation of TPD52 isoform 1 modulates chaperone-mediated autophagy in prostate cancer

Yizeng Fan, Tao Hou, Yang Gao, Weichao Dan, Tianjie Liu, Bo Liu, Yule Chen, Hongjun Xie, Zhao Yang, Jiaqi Chen, Jin Zeng & Lei Li
Aberrant chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) activation has been suggested as a tumorigenesis-promoting event in various cancers, although its roles in prostate cancer (PCa) remain elusive. Emerging evidence indicates that TPD52 isoform 1, a prostate-specific and androgen-responsive gene, contributes to the malignant progression of PCa. Here, we demonstrate that TPD52 enhances CMA activation by interacting with HSPA8/HSC70 and enhancing substrate degradation in PCa. Elevation of TPD52 is essential for CMA-induced PCa cell proliferation and stress resistance in...

β-galactosidase GALA from Bacillus circulans with high transgalactosylation activity

Yaru Yan, Weishi Guan, Xiaoyi Li, Kaier Gao, Xinxin Xu, Bo Liu, Wei Zhang & Yuhong Zhang
β-galactosidase catalyzes lactose hydrolysis and transfers reactions to produce prebiotics such as galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) with potential applications in the food industry and pharmaceuticals. However, there is still a need for improved transgalactosylation activity of β-galactosidases and reaction conditions of GOS production in order to maximize GOS output and reduce production costs. In this study, a β-galactosidase gene, galA, from Bacillus circulans was expressed in Pichia pastoris, which not only hydrolyzed lactose but also had strong...

Bo Li, Tingfei Tan, Weiwei Chu, Ying Zhang, Yuanzi Ye, Shanshan Wang, Yan Qin, Jihui Tang & Xi Cao
Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in female patients with high morbidity and mortality. Multi-drug chemotherapy has significant advantages in the treatment of malignant tumors, especially in reducing drug toxicity, increasing drug sensitivity and reducing drug resistance. The objective of this research is to fabricate lipid nanoemulsions (LNs) for the co-delivery of PTX and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) with folic acid (FA) decorating (PTX/DHA-FA-LNs), and investigate the anti-tumor activity of the...

Association of soft drink and 100% fruit juice consumption with all-cause mortality, cardiovascular diseases mortality, and cancer mortality: A systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

Bei Pan, Long Ge, Honghao Lai, Qi Wang, Qian Zhang, Min Yin, Sheng Li, Jinhui Tian, Kehu Yang & Jiancheng Wang
Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), artificially sweetened beverages (ASBs), and 100% fruit juices are frequently consumed and have been documented that they could lead to serious disease burden. However, inconsistent evidence on the association between SSBs, ASBs, and 100% fruit juices consumption and mortality have been presented. PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and PsycINFO were systematically searched. We conducted a random-effects meta-analysis and dose-response meta-analysis to assess the association and calculated...

Risk of Ophthalmic Adverse Events in Patients Treated with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Regimens: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Yan-Li Hou, Di-Ya Wang, Jie-Xuan Hu, Ru-Yue Tian, Wei Wang, Qiang Su, Hongyang Li & Yan-Ling Wang
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) -induced adverse events (AEs) have been reported affecting almost all human organs. However, studies about ocular AEs are few. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the risks of ICI-related ophthalmic AEs compare to chemotherapy. Methods: Eligible studies were selected from phase II/III randomized controlled trials investigating ICIs. The data were analyzed by R software and Stata. Odds ratio of treatment-related AE (trAEs) and nonspecific ophthalmic trAEs (NS-trAEs) were lower for PD-1/PD-L1...

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...

Kadio Aka D. Koua, Huashan Sun, Huan Li, Zhanke Li, Hui Yang, Qingming Sun, Ohouo Rebecca Mondah & Koffi Alexis N’dri
Mafic microgranular enclaves (MMEs) are hosted by the Early Cretaceous granitic plutons from the Jiaodong Peninsula and are crucial for constraining the petrogenesis of these plutons and understanding the lithospheric evolution in the eastern North China Craton (NCC). This paper presents new geochronological, bulk-rock geochemistry, and Sr-Nd-Hf isotope data for Yashan granodiorite and its MMEs in an effort to build an integrated model of the geodynamic setting during the Early Cretaceous. Zircon U–Pb dating indicates...
