Implementation of novel boolean logic gates for IMPLICATION and XOR functions using riboregulators

Chaoxin Chen, Qi Wu, Qingying Ke, Ting Wang, Yifan Zhang, Feiwen Wei, Xiaolong Wang & Guanglei Liu
To date, several different types of synthetic genetic switches, including riboregulators, riboswitches, and toehold switches, have been developed to construct AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, and NOT IMPLICATION (NIMP) gates. The logic gate can integrate multiple input signals following a set of algorithms and generate a response only if strictly defined conditions are met. However, there are still some logic gates that have not been implemented but are necessary to build complex genetic circuits. Here,...

TET2 regulates osteoclastogenesis by modulating autophagy in OVX-induced bone loss

Chen Yang, Huaqiang Tao, Haifeng Zhang, Yu Xia, Jiaxiang Bai, Gaoran Ge, Wenming Li, Wei Zhang, Long Xiao, Yaozeng Xu, Zhirong Wang, Ye Gu, Huilin Yang, Yu Liu & Dechun Geng
Increased bone resorption by osteoclasts after estrogen deficiency is the main cause of postmenopausal osteoporosis. TET2 (tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 2) is a DNA demethylase that regulates cellular function and differentiation potential. Macroautophagy/autophagy maintains cellular homeostasis by recycling unnecessary and damaged organelles. This study revealed that TET2 promoted bone loss in oophorectomized (OVX) mice and that TET2 promoted osteoclast differentiation by regulating autophagy. Tet2 knockdown inhibited autophagy and osteoclast differentiation in vitro. Mechanistically, Tet2 knockdown increased...

Long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1273 confers sorafenib resistance in hepatocellular carcinoma via regulation of methyltransferase 3

Huifang Kong, Jie Sun, Wei Zhang, Huixin Zhang & Hong Li
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is often diagnosed in patients with advanced disease who are ineligible for curative surgical therapies. Sorafenib is a first-line agent approved for the treatment of advanced HCC. However, the frequent resistance of HCC cells to sorafenib greatly reduces its efficacy. Herein, we describe a novel long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) conferring sorafenib resistance. Long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1273 (LINC01273) was significantly overexpressed in human HCC and sorafenib-resistant tissues, linking it to poor...

Extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli utilizes the surface-expressed elongation factor Tu to bind and acquire iron from holo-transferrin

Yu Sun, Xuhang Wang, Jin Li, Feng Xue, Fang Tang & Jianjun Dai
Extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) is a common anthropozoonotic pathogen that causes systemic infections. To establish infection, ExPEC must utilize essential nutrients including iron from the host. Transferrin is an important iron source for multiple bacteria. However, the mechanism by which ExPEC utilizes transferrin remains unclear. In this study, we found that iron-saturated holo-transferrin rather than iron-free apo-transferrin promoted the vitality of ExPEC in heat-inactivated human serum. The multifunctional protein Elongation factor Tu (EFTu) worked...
