ABSTRACT

ObjectiveTo investigate the difference in protein expression between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with recurrence and those with good prognosis, the differential expression and regulatory mechanism of miR-152-3p target proteins, and the role of miR-152-3p in the recurrence of HCC. MethodsTMT-labeled proteomic sequencing and RT-PCR were used to measure the expression of proteins and the expression of miR-152-3p in the HCC tissue of six patients with recurrence at 2 years after HCC resection and six patients with good prognosis at 5 years. Six databases were used to analyze the target genes of miR-152-3p, and Gene Ontology, DAVID, and REACTOME databases were used to perform target gene screening, enrichment annotation, and signal transduction pathway enrichment analysis. Gene mutation frequency and survival curve analysis were performed for the target genes of miR-152-3p to verify the role of miR-152-3p target genes in patients with HCC recurrence. The independent samples t-test was used for comparison of continuous data between two groups, and a Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to investigate the survival rates of liver-related genes. ResultsCompared with the patients with HCC recurrence, the patients with good prognosis after HCC resection had a significantly higher transcriptional expression level of miR-152-3p in HCC tissue (P<0.05). The results of protein sequencing showed that there were 365 differentially expressed proteins in HCC tissue between the patients with good prognosis and the patients with recurrence, and the analysis of HCC recurrence databases showed that 17 proteins were regulated by miR-152-3p. Further analysis of the signaling pathways showed that the function of the 17 target genes regulated by miR-152-3p was enriched in the translation and regulation of mitochondria and ribosome, and multiple enrichment revealed that six target genes were closely associated with mitochondrial respiratory chain complex, i.e., AKAP1, FOXRED1, MRPL28, MRPL50, SHC1, and STAU1. Gene mutation frequency and survival curve analysis showed that the loss or weakening of the function of mitochondrial respiratory chain-related target proteins seriously affected the prognosis and survival rate of patients. ConclusionThere is a significant difference in the expression of miR-152-3p in HCC tissue between patients with good prognosis and those with recurrence after HCC resection, and miR-152-3p may lead to the recurrence of HCC by regulating the target genes AKAP1, FOXRED1, MRPL28, MRPL50, SHC1, and STAU1, acting on the mitochondrial respiratory chain, and affecting the oxidative respiratory function of cells.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the association between Toll-like receptor (TLR) gene polymorphism and susceptibility to non-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related cryptococcal meningitis in patients from Fujian Province.Methods:A total of 101 non-HIV patients with cryptococcal meningitis and 270 healthy controls in Huashan Hospital, Fudan University and Cangshan Hospital District, The 900th Hospital of the Joint Logistics Support Force from Fujian Province were prospectively enrolled in this case-control study. Genomic DNA was extracted. Genotyping was performed by multiplex SNaPshot technology on eight TLR single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) which were reported to be related to cryptococcal meningitis but still lacking validations. The differences of gene polymorphism distributions were compared between all patients and healthy controls, and between patients without predisposing factors and healthy controls. Data were analyzed by chi-square test or Fisher exact test.Results:Except for TLR1 rs5743563, the distributions of allele frequency in seven tested TLR SNPs (TLR1 rs5743604, TLR2 rs3804099, TLR4 rs1927907, TLR6 rs3796508, TLR6 rs5743794, TLR9 rs164637 and TLR9 rs352140) were in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Comparisons between cases and controls found that TLR2 rs3804099 T/T genotype (52.5%(53/101) vs 40.4%(109/270), odds ratio ( OR)=1.63, χ2=4.378, P=0.036) and TLR6 rs5743794 G/G genotype (44.6%(45/101) vs 32.2%(87/270), OR=1.69, χ2=4.877, P=0.027) were correlated with high risks of cryptococcal meningitis, while TLR6 rs3796508 G/G genotype ((83.2%(84/101) vs 92.6%(250/270), OR=0.40, χ2=7.271, P=0.007) and TLR9 rs164637 C/C genotype (96.0%(97/101) vs 100.0%(270/270), Fisher exact test , P=0.005) were found to be protective factors. Seventy out of 101 patients had no predisposing factors. Comparison between patients without predisposing factors and healthy controls also found similar results. TLR6 rs5743794 G/G genotype (52.9%(37/70) vs 32.2%(87/270), OR=2.36, χ2=10.216, P=0.001) was risk factor, while TLR6 rs3796508 G/G genotype (81.4%(57/70) vs 92.6%(250/270), OR=0.35, χ2=7.906, P=0.005) and TLR9 rs164637 C/C genotype (97.1%(68/70) vs 100.0%(270/270), Fisher exact test, P=0.042) were protective factors. Conclusion:TLR gene polymorphism is significantly associated with non-HIV-related cryptococcal meningitis, which indicates that TLR might play an important role in the pathogenesis of cryptococcal meningitis.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the prevalence and influencing factors of intestinal protozoan infections among rural children in Henan Province. Methods A total of 104 survey sites were sampled from 35 counties (cities) in Henan Province using the stratified cluster sampling method to investigate the prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections among rural children from 2014 to 2015. The trophozoites and cysts of intestinal protozoa were identified using the iodine staining method and the physiological saline direct smear method (one detection for one stool sample). The prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections was compared among rural children with different characteristics, and the factors affecting intestinal protozoan infections among rural children were identified. Results The overall prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections was 0.60% (40/6 771) among rural children in Henan Province from 2014 to 2015. There were 7 species of intestinal protozoa identified, and there was no species-specific prevalence (χ2 = 37.732, P = 0.000). No significant differences were found in prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections among rural children in terms of gender (χ2 = 1.793, P = 0.181), age (χ2 = 1.443, P = 0.486), occupation (χ2 = 0.219, P = 0.896) or ecological region (χ2 = 1.700, P = 0.637). In addition, terrain (χ2 = 2.311, P = 0.510), economic level (χ2 = 4.322, P = 0.229), source of drinking water (χ2 = 0.731, P = 0.393), eating raw vegetables (χ2 = 1.134, P = 0.287) and deworming (χ2 = 1.089, P = 0.297) had no remarkable effects on the prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections among rural children in Henan Province; however, the prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections varied significantly among rural children living in regions with different coverage of non-harmless toilets (χ2 = 10.050, P = 0.018). Conclusion The prevalence of intestinal protozoan infections is low among rural children in Henan Province.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To determine the level of anti-measles antibody in healthy population aged 1-14 years old in Shanghai, and project the risk of measles incidence in adult population in the future, which may provide evidence for enhancing the measles immunization strategy. Methods:A cross-sectional study was conducted to collect the serum of healthy people aged 1-14 years old in an urban district hospital in Shanghai. Serum concentration of anti-measles IgG antibody was examined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and dynamics of IgG antibody was compared. Results:The prevalence of anti-measles antibody in healthy people aged 1-14 years old was determined to be 95.29%, and the antibody protection rate was 61.86%. There was no significant difference in the distribution of antibody between men and women (P>0.05). However, there was statistical difference in the distribution of antibody among different age groups (P<0.05), in which the antibody showed a decreasing trend with age, especially after the age of 10 years. The lowest prevalence of anti-measles antibody and protection rate were observed in the population aged 13-14 years old, which were 87.41% and 22.96%, respectively. The GMT was 2.667 1 (equal to the concentration of anti-measles IgG antibody being 464.62 mIU/mL). According to the fitting model Ŷ =3.217-0.04X(R2=0.943,P<0.05), the antibody protection rate was projected to decrease to zero in the population aged 19-20 years old, whereas the anti-measles antibody was to zero in the population aged 29-30 years old . Conclusion:As there is almost no natural infection of measles,the anti-measles antibody after measles vaccine immunization showed a linearly decreasing trend with age after measles immunization.It is recommended that people aged 10-15 years should be administered intensive immunization for prevention of adults measles,which could be incorporated into current measles immunization strategies.

ABSTRACT

The constitutive androstane receptor (CAR, NR3I1) belongs to nuclear receptor superfamily. It was reported that CAR agonist TCPOBOP induces hepatomegaly but the underlying mechanism remains largely unknown. Yes-associated protein (YAP) is a potent regulator of organ size. The aim of this study is to explore the role of YAP in CAR activation-induced hepatomegaly and liver regeneration. TCPOBOP-induced CAR activation on hepatomegaly and liver regeneration was evaluated in wild-type (WT) mice, liver-specific YAP-deficient mice, and partial hepatectomy (PHx) mice. The results demonstrate that TCPOBOP can increase the liver-to-body weight ratio in wild-type mice and PHx mice. Hepatocytes enlargement around central vein (CV) area was observed, meanwhile hepatocytes proliferation was promoted as evidenced by the increased number of KI67

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the biological function of Cysteine rich (CysR) domain of a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 repeats-13 (ADAMTS13) on cleavage of von Willebrand factor (vWF) and provide experimental evidence for exploring the pathogenesis of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP).@*METHODS@#The six amino acids (EDGTLS) in ADAMTS13 CysR domain were point mutated one by one, and the mutant ADAMTS13 proteins were expressed and purified. The cleavage products of vWF polymer by wild-type or mutant ADAMTS13 under denaturing condition or shear stress were separated by 1% SeaKem HGT agarose gel and detected by Western blot.@*RESULTS@#The mutant ADAMTS13 plasmids (M1: Glu515Ala; M2: Asp516Ala; M3: Gly517Ala; M4: Thr518Ala; M5: Leu519Ala; M6: Ser520Ala) were successfully constructed and the proteins of wild-type and mutant ADAMTS13 were purified. Wild-type ADAMTS13 almost completely cleaved the vWF polymer under denaturing condition, while the cleavage activity of M1 mutant was significantly reduced in the same condition (P<0.01). The cleavage activity of M1 mutant of ADAMTS13 was also significantly reduced compared with that of the wild-type under shear stress (P<0.01). The activity of M1 mutant to cleave the FRETS-vWF73 was dramatically reduced compared with that of wild-type ADAMTS13. However, the binding ability of M1 mutant to vWF was similar with that of wild-type ADAMTS13.@*CONCLUSION@#The CysR domain of ADAMTS13 plays an important role in the digestion of vWF under denaturing condition and shear stress. The Glu515 amino acid residue might be an important site for substrate recognition.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate relationship between cold pain of knee joint and subchondral bone marrow edema (BME).@*METHODS@#From May 2018 to August 2019, 92 patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA) associated with cold pain of knee were admitted, all patients were underwent MRI examination. The patients were divided into observation group (47 patients with BME) and control group(45 patients without BME). In observation group, there were 6 males and 41 females aged from 36 to 87 years old with an average of (63.2±12.3) years old. In control group, there were 10 males and 35 females, aged from 48 to 84 years old with an average of (62.7±8.3) years old. All patientswere treated with drugs. The degree of joint degeneration was evaluated by Kellgren-Lawrence (K-L) grading. Degree of cold pain of knee was evaluated by knee cold pain score, and degree of BME was evaluated according to WORMS. The correlation between cold pain of knee and K-L grading and BME was analyzed.@*RESULTS@#Score of cold pain in observation group (15.55±7.68) was higher than that of control group (9.42± 5.50), which had significant difference (@*CONCLUSION@#The cold pain of KOA patients is not related to K-L grading, but corelate with BME grading. The Cold pain of knee was more pronounced in KOA patients with BME, and the severity of BME is often related to degree of cold pain. It seemed to be a tendency:the more serious BME, the heavier coldpain.

ABSTRACT

In order to better utilize saffron floral bio-residues(SFB), a qualitative and quantitative analysis of flavonoids in SFB was conducted using UPLC-MS and UPLC, respectively. On the one hand, 50 flavonols and 5 anthocyanins were putatively characte-rized by using UPLC-Q-TOF-MS. On the other hand, an UPLC method was established for determining the fingerprint of SFB as well as testing the main flavonoids kaempferol-3-O-sophoroside and delphinidin-3,5-di-O-glucoside. Contents of kaempferol-3-O-sophoroside and delphinidin-3,5-di-O-glucoside of 10 batches of samples were 44.21-58.73 mg·g~(-1) and 2.11-6.37 mg·g~(-1), respectively, and the similarities of 10 batches were more than 0.99. In addition, the color of the samples was digitized by using electronic eye technology, and it was found that the color of the samples was significantly correlated with the content of delphinidin-3,5-di-O-glucoside. The richness of flavonoids in SFB indicated its potential for development and utilization, and the large variation in anthocyanin content among samples from different regions suggested that more attention should be paid to the methods of sample pretreatment and storage.

ABSTRACT

With the emergence of drug resistance in Western medicine, the repeated administration of clinical first-line drugs becomes more severe. There are many factors leading to multidrug resistance(MDR), so it is very difficult to solve the problem. Since traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) has been used in the field of MDR in recent years, the research on the transporter-associated drug resistance and intervention of TCM has gradually become a hot spot. Therefore, in order to further explore the relationships among drug resistance, transporters, and TCM intervention, we review the relevant research progress in recent years and comb the achievements and limitations of this research at present. In the end, we put forward the research direction of changing body's ADME through the host's transporters and gastrointestinal flora, which provides new ideas for future research.

ABSTRACT

Network pharmacology and liver fibrosis(LF) model in vitro were used to analyze the underly mechanism of anti-liver fibrosis effect that induced by Piperis Longi Fructus and its major active compounds. TCMSP and TCMIP were used to search for the chemical constituents of Piperis Longi Fructus, as well as the oral bioavailability(OB), drug-likeness(DL), intercellular permeability of intestinal epithelial cells(Caco-2) and Drug-likeness grading were set as limiting conditions. The related target genes of Piperis Longi Fructus were queried by TCMSP database, while related targets of LF were screened by GeneCards databases. Interaction network was constructed using Cytoscape 3.7.1. These above data were imported into STRING database for PPI network analysis. Enrichment of gene ontology(GO) and pathway analysis(KEGG) within Bioconductor database were utilized to note functions of related targets of Piperis Longi Fructus. Finally, the core targets and pathways were preliminarily verified by in vitro experiments. The effects of piperlongumine(PL), the major active component of Piperis Longi Fructus, on proliferation of rat liver stellate cells(HSC-T6) and expression of α smooth muscle actin(α-SMA) and collagen Ⅰ were investigated. The major factors TNF-α of tumor necrosis factor(TNF) pathway and NF-κB p65, IL-6 protein expressions of LF process were examined. A total of 12 active compounds such as PL were obtained by analyzing the bioavailability and drug-like properties, which inferred to 48 targets. The functional enrichment analysis of GO obtained 1 240 GO items, mainly involving in process of biology and molecular function. A total of 99 signaling pathways were enriched in the KEGG pathway enrichment analysis, including TNF signaling pathway, cGMP-PKG signaling pathway, calcium signaling pathways. CCK-8 assay showed that PL inhibited proliferation of HSC-T6 induced by transforming growth factor-β1(TGF-β1). Western blot analysis found that treated with PL suppressed the protein expressions of α-SMA, collagen Ⅰ, TNF-α and p65 in HSC-T6. Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA) showed that PL inhibited the expressions of TNF-α and IL-6 in the cluture supertant of HSC-T6 cells. In conclusion, PL could play an anti-liver fibrosis role by regulating TNF/NF-κB signaling pathway. This study provided the mechanism basis of anti-LF effects induced by Piperis Longi Fructus and its major active compounds, which might help for the further study of the mechanism and key targets of Piperis Longi Fructus.

ABSTRACT

By preparing 15 batches of substance benchmarks of Taohong Siwu Decoction, the methodology of the characteristic spectrums of substance benchmarks was established. The paste-forming rate range, the contents and the transfer rate range of the index components, hydroxy safflower yellow A, ferulic acid and paeoniflorin, the characteristic peaks and the similarity range of the characteristic spectrums of Taohong Siwu Decoction were determined to define key quality attributes of substance benchmarks of Taohong Siwu Decoction.In the 15 batches of substance benchmarks of Taohong Siwu Decoction, the similarity of characteristic spectrums was higher than 0.9. Furthermore, based on summarization of the characteristic peak information, there were 13 characteristic peaks in the whole decoction. Baishao had three characteristic peaks, Honghua had seven characteristic peaks, and Chuanxiong and Danggui had three characteristic peaks. The paste-forming rate of the 15 batches of substance benchmarks was controlled at 33.11%-40.62%. The content of hydroxy safflower yellow A was 0.129%-0.203%, with the average transfer rate of 16.596%±0.669%.The content of ferulic acid was 0.043%-0.055%, with the average transfer rate of 20.489%±1.772%.The content of paeoniflorin was 0.676%-0.943%, with the average transfer rate of 29.112%±3.273%.The quality value transfer of substance benchmarks of classical prescription Taohong Siwu Decoction was analyzed by the combination of characteristic spectrums, paste-forming rate and the content of index components. The established substance benchmark quality evaluation method was stable and feasible, and could provide a basis for quality control and subsequent development of relevant preparations of Taohong Siwu Decoction.

ABSTRACT

By preparing 10 batches of substance benchmarks freeze-drying powder( lyophilized powder),the methodology of the characteristic spectrum and the content of index component for substance benchmarks of Qingwei San was established. The characteristic peaks and the similarity range of the characteristic spectrum,the contents and the transfer rate range of isoferulic acid,palmatine and paeonol,and the paste-forming rate range were determined to define key quality attributes of substance benchmarks of Qingwei San. In the10 batches of substance benchmarks of Qingwei San,the similarity of characteristic spectrum was higher than 0. 90. In further comparison of the characteristic peak information,a total of 16 characteristic peaks were identified,including 5 characteristic peaks from Cimicifugae Rhizoma,5 characteristic peaks from Coptidis Rhizoma,2 characteristic peaks from Angelicae Sinensis Radix and 4 characteristic peaks from Moutan Cortex. The content of isoferulic acid was 0. 10%-0. 18%,with the average transfer rate of 49. 82%±4. 02%. The content of palmatine was 0. 17%-0. 31%,with the average transfer rate of 15. 84% ±2. 39%. The content of paeonol was 0. 41%-0. 75%,with the average transfer rate of 23. 41%±3. 23%. The paste-forming rate of the 10 batches of substance benchmarks were controlled at 27%-33%,with the transfer rate between the theoretical paste-forming rate and the actual paste-forming rate was 86. 59%±3. 39%. In this study,the quality value transfer of substance benchmarks of Qingwei San was analyzed by the combination of characteristic spectrum,the content of index component and the paste-forming rate. A scientific and stable evaluation method was preliminarily established,so as to provide the basis for subsequent development and quality control of relevant preparations of Qingwei San.
