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...

Study on influencing factors of Pickering emulsion stabilized by modified montmorillonite and fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether

Qian Chen, Zeyu Yang, Xiumei Tai, Yanyun Bai & Guoyong Wang
Pickering emulsion is widely used in food, drug administration, and cosmetics. In practical applications, surfactants are often co-present with particles, so it is particularly critical to study particle-surfactant interactions. Pickering emulsions were prepared using stearyltrimethylammoniumchloride organic montmorillonite (STAC/MMT) and fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether (AEO-3) as stabilizers. Effects of AEO-3 content, STAC/MMT content, oil-water ratio, emulsification temperature, emulsification time on emulsion stability were systematically revealed by studying the particle size distribution and phase volume of the...

The mitochondrial genome of Chthamalus malayensis (Sessilia: Chthamalidae) and its molecular phylogeny within Cirripedia

Sheng Mao, Tian Ge, Yuefeng Cai, Nanjing Ji, Xue Kong & Xin Shen
Cirripedia is a lower crustacean that has an invaluable place in several aspects of intertidal ecology and anti-fouling research. In this study, we present the first mitochondrial genome of Chthamalus malayensis. The complete mitochondrial genome of C. malayensis is a circular molecule of 15,230 bp. In comparison to the pancrustacean ground pattern, the mitochondrial genome of C. malayensis has a deletion of the trnC gene. Phylogenetic analysis based on mitochondrial protein-coding genes showed that C....

Dynamic Dissection of Dynein and Kinesin-1 Cooperatively Mediated Intercellular Transport of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Coronavirus along Microtubule Using Single Virus Tracking

Wei Hou, Wenjie Kang, Yangyang Li, Yanke Shan, Shouyu Wang & Fei Liu
It is now clear that the intercellular transport on microtubules by dynein and kinesin-1 motors has an important role in the replication and spread of many viruses. Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) is an enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus of the Coronavirus family, which can infect swine of all ages and cause severe economic losses in the swine industry. Elucidating the molecular mechanisms of the intercellular transport of PEDV through microtubule, dynein and kinesin-1 will be...

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...

Synergy of alanine and gentamicin to reduce nitric oxide for elevating killing efficacy to antibiotic-resistant Vibrio alginolyticus

Su-fang Kuang, Yue-tao Chen, Jia-jie Chen, Xuan-xian Peng, Zhuang-gui Chen & Hui Li
The present study explored the cooperative effect of both alanine (Ala) and gentamicin (Gent) on metabolic mechanisms by which exogenous Ala potentiates Gent to kill antibiotic-resistant Vibrio alginolyticus. To test this, GC-MS-based metabolomics was used to characterize Ala-, Gent- and both-induced metabolic profiles, identifying nitric oxide (NO) production pathway as the most key clue to understand metabolic mechanisms. Gent, Ala and both led to low, lower and lowest activity of total nitric oxide synthase (tNOS)...

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...

Aspirin relieves the calcification of aortic smooth muscle cells by enhancing the heat shock response

Quanquan Shen, Qian Chen, Yang Liu, Xiang Xue, Xiaogang Shen, Qiang He, Guokun Wang & Fei Han
Vascular calcification is a major complication of chronic renal failure, which has been identified as an active process partly driven by osteogenic transition of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Aspirin could prevent cardiomyocyte damage by inducing heat shock response. This study investigates the effect of aspirin on alleviating VSMC calcification. An in vitro VSMC calcification model was established by 10-day calcification induction in osteogenic medium. VSMCs were grouped as following: control group (normal medium), calcified...

Novel mutation in TSPAN12 associated with familial exudative vitreoretinopathy in a Chinese pedigree

Zhen Song, Mo Li, Chang Wang, Yu Wang, Lihua Zhang, Na Li, Ruifang Yang & Ping Sun
Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) is a rare retinal disorder characterised by incomplete retinal vascular development. Symptoms vary widely from none to blindness even within the same family. Multiple genes related to the Wnt pathway have been found to be associated with FEVR. Recent studies identified tetraspanin 12 (TSPAN12) as a cause of the autosomal dominant inheritance form of FEVR. Here, we describe a novel TSPAN12 mutation in a Chinese family with FEVR. Targeted next-generation sequencing...

Understanding the deep structure use of mobile phones – an attachment perspective

Jie Lou, Lingzhao Deng & Dong Wang
Users rely heavily on mobile phones as multi-purpose devices to support all kinds of tasks. This study conceptualises mobile phone deep structure use and aims at unveiling such behaviour. Towards this end, this study goes beyond the traditional technology usage theories based on rationality and instrumentality. It is replaced by a relationship-based theory, the attachment theory, to investigate how users’ attachment to mobile phones is formed and how such attachment influences mobile phone deep structure...
