ABSTRACT

@#Abstract:Objective To prepare human monoclonal antibody against spike protein(S protein)of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2(SARS⁃CoV⁃2)by using single B cell,and determine its neutralizing activity. Methods Venous blood with high antibody level was collected from people immunized with inactivated SARS⁃CoV⁃2 vaccine(Vero cells) twice,of which peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMCs)were isolated by lymphocyte stratified fluid and used to isolate single B cell expressing S protein antibody by magnetic beads coupled with S1 protein. Variable region genes of IgG heavy chain and light chain were amplified by nested PCR after reverse transcription of single B cell,which were connected with CMV promoter,IgG leader sequence,IgG constant region and polyA sequence by overlapping PCR to construct antibody linear expression cassette. Linear expression cassette of the heavy chain and light chain from the same B cell was transfected to HEK293T cells to express human monoclonal antibody of SARS⁃CoV⁃2 S protein. Immunoreactivity was detected by immuno⁃ fluorescence while neutralizing activity by pseudovirus neutralization test. Results A total of 26 monoclonal antibodies against SARS⁃CoV⁃2 S protein were expressed,which showed heavy chain and light chain protein bands of IgG antibody at

ABSTRACT

A growing number of urban dwellers are being exposed to excessively bright artificial night light induced by the development of high-intensity, high-density cities around the world. The adverse health effects of artificial light at night (ALAN) are increasingly becoming a global public health issue. Investigating the effects of built environment, especially ALAN, on public health has progressively developed into a cross-disciplinary research hotspot since the World Health Organization launched the Healthy Cities Project. Numerous studies found the links between ALAN and multiple negative health outcomes. However, to date, no review has summarized the health impacts of ALAN in China. This article systematically outlined the progress of research on the health effects of indoor and outdoor ALAN, including sleep disorders, obesity, cancers, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, cognitive function, and mental health. We pointed out the limitations of current research such as errors in exposure assessment, lack of research in developing countries, weak causal argument, and difficulty in controlling confounding factors. Future research should improve study design, conduct quantitative studies, and explore potential mechanisms, so as to provide scientific evidence for improving urban lighting planning and urban architectural design.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To verify the consistency between the digital manufacturing simple intraoral Gothic arch-tracing device and the traditional intraoral Gothic arch-tracing device in determining the centric relation of complete dentures restoration.@*METHODS@#Ten outpatients with edentulous jaws were selec-ted, and the centric relation of the patients was determined by digital manufacturing of simple intraoral Gothic arch-tracing device (T1) and traditional intraoral Gothic arch-tracing device (T2); the difference of clinical operation time between the two methods was recorded; the upper and lower edentulous jaw plaster models were scanned with two kinds of centric relation, the Standard Triangle Language (STL) files imported into Geomagic studio software to apply the best fitting of multiple points of the both upper jaw models, the fitted STL files imported into the 3 shape viewer software, and the maximum position deviations of the vertical, labial (buccal) and lingual directions of the mandibular midline area and molar areas in T1 and T2 groups measured. During the clinical complete dentures try-in, we observed whether there was midline deviation in the mouth of T1 group and T2 group, and whether the occlusion of posterior teeth was stable or not.@*RESULTS@#The mean time spent on determining the centric relation of T1 and T2 groups was (41.90±2.64) min, (57.50±2.37) min respectively. Paired t test was conducted in the two groups, P < 0.01 with significant statistical difference; The mean maximum position deviation between T1 group and T2 group of the midline mandibular region in labial lingual direction was (0.32±0.14) mm, that was (0.40±0.23) mm in vertical direction; the mean maximum position deviation of molar area in buccal lingual direction was (0.35±0.23) mm and that was (0.33±0.20) mm in vertical direction. In the vertical and horizontal directions, the maximum position deviation of mandibles between group T1 and group T2 was controlled within 0.5 mm. In the process of clinical complete dentures try-in, there was no deviation from the center line of dentures. There was not warping, swinging and other poor stability phenomena in T1 and T2 groups.@*CONCLUSION@#The digital manufacturing of simple intraoral Gothic arch-tracing device can be used to determine the centric relation of complete dentures, which can not only save time of clinical operation, but also ensure the accuracy of the centric relation.

ABSTRACT

Pseudo-allergic reactions (PARs) widely occur upon application of drugs or functional foods. Anti-pseudo-allergic ingredients from natural products have attracted much attention. This study aimed to investigate anti-pseudo-allergic compounds in licorice. The anti-pseudo-allergic effect of licorice extract was evaluated in rat basophilic leukemia 2H3 (RBL-2H3) cells. Anti-pseudo-allergic compounds were screened by using RBL-2H3 cell extraction and the effects of target components were verified further in RBL-2H3 cells, mouse peritoneal mast cells (MPMCs) and mice. Molecular docking and human MRGPRX2-expressing HEK293T cells (MRGPRX2-HEK293T cells) extraction were performed to determine the potential ligands of MAS-related G protein-coupled receptor-X2 (MRGPRX2), a pivotal target for PARs. Glycyrrhizic acid (GA) and licorice chalcone A (LA) were screened and shown to inhibit Compound48/80-induced degranulation and calcium influx in RBL-2H3 cells. GA and LA also inhibited degranulation in MPMCs and increase of histamine and TNF-α in mice. LA could bind to MRGPRX2, as determined by molecular docking and MRGPRX2-HEK293T cell extraction. Our study provides a strong rationale for using GA and LA as novel treatment options for PARs. LA is a potential ligand of MRGPRX2.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#This study aimed to assess the associations between maternal drug use, cytochrome P450 ( CYP450) genetic polymorphisms, and their interactions with the risk of congenital heart defects (CHDs) in offspring.@*METHODS@#A case-control study involving 569 mothers of CHD cases and 652 controls was conducted from November 2017 to January 2020.@*RESULTS@#After adjusting for potential confounding factors, the results show that mothers who used ovulatory drugs (adjusted odds ratio [a OR] = 2.12; 95% confidence interval [ CI]: 1.08-4.16), antidepressants (a OR = 2.56; 95% CI: 1.36-4.82), antiabortifacients (a OR = 1.55; 95% CI: 1.00-2.40), or traditional Chinese drugs (a OR = 1.97; 95% CI: 1.26-3.09) during pregnancy were at a significantly higher risk of CHDs in offspring. Maternal CYP450 genetic polymorphisms at rs1065852 (A/T vs. A/A: OR = 1.53, 95% CI: 1.10-2.14; T/T vs. A/A: OR = 1.57, 95% CI: 1.07-2.31) and rs16947 (G/G vs. C/C: OR = 3.41, 95% CI: 1.82-6.39) were also significantly associated with the risk of CHDs in offspring. Additionally, significant interactions were observed between the CYP450genetic variants and drug use on the development of CHDs.@*CONCLUSIONS@#In those of Chinese descent, ovulatory drugs, antidepressants, antiabortifacients, and traditional Chinese medicines may be associated with the risk of CHDs in offspring. Maternal CYP450 genes may regulate the effects of maternal drug exposure on fetal heart development.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#Fluorouracil chemotherapeutic drugs are the classic treatment drugs of gastric cancer. But the problem of drug resistance severely limits their clinical application. This study aims to investigate whether hypoxia microenvironment affects gastric cancer resistance to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and discuss the changes of gene and proteins directly related to drug resistance under hypoxia condition.@*METHODS@#Gastric cancer cells were treated with 5-FU in hypoxia/normoxic environment, and were divided into a Normoxic+5-FU group and a Hypoxia+5-FU group. The apoptosis assay was conducted by flow cytometry Annexin V/PI double staining. The real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Western blotting were used to detect the expression level of hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), multidrug resistance (MDR1) gene, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) which were related to 5-FU drug-resistance. We analyzed the effect of hypoxia on the treatment of gastric cancer with 5-FU.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the Normoxic+5-FU group, the apoptosis of gastric cancer cells treated with 5-FU in the Hypoxia+5-FU group was significantly reduced (P<0.05), and the expression of apoptosis promoter protein caspase 8 was also decreased. Compared with the the Normoxic+5-FU group, HIF-1α mRNA expression in the Hypoxia+5-FU group was significantly increased (P<0.05), and the mRNA and protein expression levels of MDR1, P-gp and VEGF were also significantly increased (all P<0.05). The increased expression of MDR1, P-gp and VEGF had the same trend with the expression of HIF-1α.@*CONCLUSIONS@#Hypoxia is a direct influencing factor in gastric cancer resistance to 5-FU chemotherapy. Improvement of the local hypoxia microenvironment of gastric cancer may be a new idea for overcoming the resistance to 5-FU in gastric cancer.

ABSTRACT

Abstract To explore the effects and mechanisms of benzoylaconitine and paeoniflorin on collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) rats. Weight, paw swelling, arthritis index and joint pathologic changes were examined in each group after CIA induction. PGE2, IL-1ß, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α, VEGF, MMP-3, IgG and anti-CII Ab were assessed by ELISA; STAT1 and STAT3 expressions were analyzed immunohistochemically, and the ultrastructure of synovial cells was observed by transmission electron microscopy. Therapeutic effects were determined in CIA rats via injecting benzoylaconitine and paeoniflorin, which could alleviate the degree of swelling and arthritis index (AI) and pathological lesions of the sacroiliac gland; decrease the levels of PGE2, IL-1ß, TNF-α, VEGF and IgG in serum; reduce STAT1 and STAT3 expression in the membrane tissue; and inhibit the secretion and proliferation of synovial cells. These results showed that benzoylaconitine and paeoniflorin could significantly palliate the arthritic symptoms of CIA rats, and better therapeutic effects could be achieved if the two components were used in combination

ABSTRACT

Cervical cancer is the second most common malignant tumor in women worldwide.The burden of cervical cancer is particularly heavy in less developed countries as the malignancy brings huge pain to the patients and their family members and causes huge losses to social development and global health.However,cervical cancer is a preventable and curable disease.While screening and human papillomavirus vaccination in developed countries have remarkably lowered the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer,there is still a far way to go to achieve the prevention and treatment of this disease.The multidisciplinary prevention and control programs slightly differ in different countries due to diverse economic and health conditions.The general principle is to vaccinate the young females and to implement a comprehensive strategy including human papillomavirus vaccine vaccination,screening,early diagnosis,and early treatment in adults.

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveThere are few studies on whether the occurrence of anti-tuberculosis drug-induced liver injury (ADIH) is associated with the polymorphism of CYP2E gene and methylation level. This study aims to CYP2E1 gene polymorphism and the relationship between the methylation level of the promoter region and ADIH in Mongolian tuberculosis (TB) patients.Methods A total of 135 Mongolian TB patients who received standardized treatment at the Tuberculosis Research Institute of Tongliao City, Inner Mongolia from November 2015 to June 2018 were selected. According to the ADIH criteria, TB patients with liver injury were selected as the ADIH group (n=45), and TB patients without liver injury were matched as the control group based on a ratio of 1∶2 (n=90). DNA extraction and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) were performed to amplify the CYP2E1 gene to determine the CYP2E1 rs2031920 genotype, and to analyze the CYP2E1 gene polymorphism and relationship between ADIH and promoter methylation level.Results There were no significant differences in the distribution of CYP2E1 rs2031920 genotype, C1 and C2 gene frequencies between the ADIH group and the control group (P>0.05). The overall methylation level in the promoter region of CYP2E1 gene in ADIH group (0.711±0.085) was significantly lower than that of the control group (0.759±0.062). Results of Logistic regression showed that the overall methylation level in the promoter region of CYP2E1 gene was the influencing factor for the occurrence of ADIH (P<0.005). For each 0.1 unit increase of methylation level, the risk of ADIH occurrence reduced by 0.388 times, and the OR (95% CI) value was 0.388 (between 0.204 and 0.739).Conclusion The overall methylation level in the promoter region of CYP2E1 gene was reduced in Mongolian ADIH patients, but the polymorphism of CYP2E1 gene was not related to the occurrence of ADIH. These results suggested that CYP2E1 methylation could be applied to the prevention and treatment of ADIH in patients with tuberculosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective This study aimed to analyze the differences in the molecular characteristics of transcriptome between esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Methods We obtained transcriptomic data on ESCC and EAC from the TCGA database, screened differentially expressed mRNAs, lncRNAs and miRNAs in cancer and the adjacent tissues, and constructed a network of ESCC- and EAC-related competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA). We predicted the target genes and performed gene ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) analyses on important miRNAs, and compared the molecular features of the transcriptomes between ESCC and EAC. Results The ceRNA network analysis showed that PVT1, LINC00524, miR-204, miR-383, HOXC8 and NTRK2 played important regulatory roles in both ESCC and EAC. Totally, 13 227 regulatory target genes were predicted with miR-204-5p via miRWalk and 232 target genes screened from the miRDB database. GO analysis revealed 38 enrichments, mainly involved in the regulation of cell-matrix adhesion, morphogenesis of cell membrane projection, and β-catenin combination, KEGG analysis showed 4 relevant pathways: the hedgehog, life-regulating, estrogen and relaxin signaling pathways, and survival analysis manifested LINC00261, MLIP-IT1 and LINC00504 as survival-related differentially expressed lncRNAs, hsa-mir-338 as differentially expressed miRNA, but no mRNA in ESCC. Survival-related differentially expressed lncRNAs in EAC included CYP1B1-AS1 and HOTAIR, and differentially expressed mRNAs included IL11, NTRK2, ANGPT2 and PBK. Of the differentially expressed lncRNAs in both ESCC and EAC, 150 (15.4%) were up-regulated and 158 (26.8%) down-regulated; of the miRNAs, 22 (24.2%) up-regulated and 8 (27.6%) down-regulated; and of the mRNAs, 234 (20.5%) up-regulated and 418 (23.7%) down-regulated. Conclusion There are significant molecular differences between ESCC and EAC, and the differentially expressed lncRNA, miRNA and mRNA may provide some new targets and molecular markers for the treatment and prognosis of esophageal carcinoma.

ABSTRACT

Objective No study has been reported on the association between the abnormal methylation of drug metabolic enzymes and anti-tuberculosis drug-induced liver injury (ATLI). This article aimed to investigate the relationship of ATLI with the methylation of the CpG islands in the promoter regions of cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1) and glutathione s-transferase M1 (GSTM1) in Chinese Mongolian patients with tuberculosis (TB). Methods This retrospective study included 93 cases of TB diagnosed and treated in the TB prevention and treatment institutions of Tongliao, Inner Mongolia, between September 2016 and December 2017, which were divided into an ATLI (n = 31) and a non-ATLI group (n = 62), the former with and the latter without ATLI within 6 months after anti-TB medication. We compared the methylation levels of the CYP2E1 and GSTM1 genes between the two groups of patients and analyzed the risk factors of ATLI. Results In comparison with the non-ATLI controls, the patients of the ATLI group showed significantly lower methylation levels in the promoter regions of CYP2E1 (0.759 ± 0.066 vs 0.694 ± 0.091, P < 0.05) and GSTM1 (0.207 ± 0.093 vs 0.187 ± 0.092, P < 0.05). Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that the main risk factors of ATLI included alcohol consumption (OR = 5.329, 95% CI: 1.442-19.697, P < 0.05) and methylation in the CYP2E1 promoter region (OR = 0.312, 95% CI: 0.165-0.591, P < 0.05) in the TB patients. Conclusion ATLI is associated with the methylation level in the promoter region of the CYP2E1 gene in Chinese Mongolian patients with tuberculosis, indicating that the methylation of CYP2E1 could be used as a biomarker in the prevention and control of ATLI.

ABSTRACT

Objective Differentially-expressed lncRNAs in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) among different races remain unclarified at present time. This study aimed to analyze the shared and specific differential expression profiles of lncRNAs in HCC patients of the yellow, white and black races in the TCGA database and predict their functions and regulatory mechanisms. Methods We screened differentially expressed lncRNAs in the cancer and paracancer tissues of the HCC patients of the yellow, white and black races, compared differential expression profiles of lncRNAs and identified the common differentially expressed lncRNAs among the three races. We performed COX regression survival analysis on the differentially expressed lncRNAs, constructed a ceRNA network, and predicted the target genes and their regulatory mechanisms by GO and KEGG enrichment analyses and prediction of the transcription factors. Results Totally 49 HCC-related lncRNAs were found in all the three races, with 21.5% overlapped in the white and black races, 7.8% in the white and yellow and 5.8% in the black and Asians. GO enrichment analysis showed that the target genes of LINC01224 in the all three races were related to DNA replication and transposition, gene expression regulation, epigenetics, silencing of miRNAs, and gene silencing after RNA transcription, while KEGG analysis revealed a correlation of LINC01224 with the cell cycle and DNA replication. Target genes were not predicted in the 11 survival-related lncRNAs in the patients of the white race. Of the 6 survival-related lncRNAs in the yellow patients, the target gene of AC093609.1 was shown to be involved in the activity of the ionic channel, regulation of cardiomyopathy- and cardiomyocyte adrenalin-related signaling pathways, various metabolic functions, fat degradation, ABC protein transportation, and amino acid metabolism. Conclusion HCC-related expression profiles of lncRNAs have a great similarity between the white and black races, but a high differentiality between the yellow and the white or black. LINC01224 may be involved in the relation of tumor growth in all the three races, while AC093609.1 and AC126118.1 specific of the yellow race play an important role in tumor metabolism.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to investigate the protective effects of a small molecular fraction (SMF) of Polygoni multiflori Radix Praeparata (PMRP) in a cyclophosphamide (CTX) induced anemia mouse model. Small molecular fraction of PMRP was prepared and identified by high-performance liquid chromatography-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (HPLC-Q-TOF-MS). In pharmacology, we examined the peripheral hemogram and thymus and spleen index. The content of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) in serum was mensurated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA); The level of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), total antioxidant capacity (T-AOC), and malondialdehyde (MDA) in serum and spleen tissue homogenate were detected, and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-PX) was assayed in spleen. The results show that SMF can significantly accelerate the recovery of peripheral hemogram, increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes and GM-CSF in serum and spleen. SMF also increases the number of spleen cells, improves bone marrow pathology. In conclusion, the SMF of PMRP promoted the recovery of hematopoietic function in a CTX-induced anemia mouse, which can support SMF to be used as an adjunct to chemotherapy to counteract its side effects.

ABSTRACT

The hydrogen peroxide generation system was used to analyze the scavenging activity of hydrogen peroxide by Liropes Radix from different origins by HPLC-UV-CL. The UV-CL fingerprints of Liropes Radix from different origins were evaluated,and the HPLC-UV and LC-CL fingerprints were systematically analyzed and evaluated. The results showed that the ether fractions of Liriope spicata var. prolifera and L. muscari had good scavenging activity of hydrogen peroxide,and the total activity of different origins varied greatly,while the similar samples had similar activities. The total antioxidant activity of L. muscari is higher than that of L. spicata var.prolifera. The similarity analysis of the two fingerprints was carried out by two different analytical methods. The chemical fingerprints and the active fingerprints have different characteristics. The contribution of each fingerprint to the total peak area and total activity is also different. There are significant differences between the two different fingerprint clustering results.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze histomorphometrical characteristics of the bone and bone marrow tissues of the lumbar vertebrae in rabbits with fluoride treatment,and its correlation with signal intensity of MRI.Methods Forty New Zealand albino rabbits aged three months old were randomly divided into fluoride exposure of 30 cases and control of 10 cases,male and female,half each.One hundred milligrams of sodium fluoride were added to the municipal water each liter (fluoride content 100 mg/L) as drinking waterto fluorine for 180 days.Twenty-four of 30 cases with fluoride exposure had complete data (male10 casesand female14 cases).The same municipal water was used as control drinking water (fluoride content < 0.9 mg/L).Eight of 10 cases with control had complete data (male andfemale in half).Twenty-four cases with fluoride treatment and complete data were classified into sensitive and resistant type according to the MRI signal intensity of the lumbar vertebra.Histomorphometrics of the vertebra and its correlation with the MRI signal intensity,and sensitivity in early diagnosis of osteofluorosis and feasibility of susceptibility to osteofluorosis detected with MRI were analyzed.Results Theratios of trabecular bone volume (BV),hematopoietic cell volume (HV) and fluid volume (FV) in bone marrow tissue to total cavernous tissue volume (TT) in group with fluoride treatment were 18.3%±2.6%,45.2%±6.0% and 10.4%±5.7% respectively.These were 14.5%±2.8%,36.3%±7.3% and 6.2%±2.1% in control group respectively.These parameters in fluoride group were significantly increased compared to control group.The ratio 26.0%± 8.0% of adipocyte volume (AV) to TV in fluoride group was significantly lower than that 43.3%±5.6% in control group.Two of 24 cases with fluoride exposure (8.3%,2/24) were sensitive and the remaining 22 (91.7%,22/24) were in resistance.The valuesof BV/TT,HV/TV and FV/TV were considered to be sensitive,resistant and control from large to small,while AV/TV value were opposite.A comparison resuhs of signal intensity in MRI showed that vertebra T1WI contrast to noise ratio (CNR) in the sensitive was the minimum (3.0±0.8),followed by resistance (21.3±3.8) andmaximum in the control (28.3±3.1),but CNR of FsT2WIwas opposite.There were positive associations between T1WI and AV/TV,FV/TV and BV/TV,and between FsT2WI and FV/TV and BV/ TV.There were inverse associationsbetween FsT2WI and AV/TV.Theoptimal threshold value of the vertebra T1WI CNR was 23.2 or lessin early diagnosis of skeletal fluorosis,with sensitivity of 83.3% and specificity of 100%.FsT2WI was 5.7 or more,with sensitivity of 45.8% and specificity of 100%.Conclusion The pathogenesis of osteofluorosis is relative to changes in bone marrow microenvironment and cells number in bone marrow tissue,and is correlated to MRI signal intensity.
