Objective:To analyze food intolerance status in children in Qingdao by detecting the serum levels of food-specific IgG (sIgG).Methods:In this cross-sectional study, a total of 4 249 children aged 0 to 14 years (all were permanent residents of Qingdao City) admitted to Women and Children′s Hospital Affiliated to Qingdao University from May 2017 to December 2020 for suspected food intolerance were selected as the study objects with the whole sampling method. According to the age, the objects were divided into 4 groups: 0-<1 year group (440 cases), 1-<3 years group (1 761 cases), 3-<6 years group (1 193 cases), and ≥6 years group (855 cases). Positive condition of serum sIgG antibodies of 14 kinds of food in the children were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Chi-square test was used to compare the positive rate of the antibodies among different foods, gender and age groups.Results:The total positive rate of food sIgG antibody in 4 249 children was 95.32% (4 050/4 249), the highest positive rate was found in eggs (81.50%) and the lowest positive rate was found in pork (1.15%). The positive rates of sIgG antibody in milk (54.98% vs 49.69%, χ2=11.627), crab (5.59% vs 3.71%, χ2=8.049) and shrimp (4.62% vs 2.75%, χ2=9.784) in boys were significantly higher than those in girls, and the positive rates of sIgG antibody in tomato (49.19% vs 45.54%, χ2=5.510), cod (8.53% vs 5.96%, χ2=10.512) and beef (2.58% vs 1.70%, χ2=3.959) in girls were significantly higher than those in boys (all P<0.05). The total positive rate of sIgG antibody in 14 foods was the lowest in 0-<1 year group (89.09%), and it was the highest in 3-<6 years group (96.98%) ( χ2=63.950, P<0.001). The highest positive rate in 0-<1 year group was found in tomato (56.36%), and it was eggs (85.29%, 88.94%, 85.50%) in all the other 3 groups. The positive rates of corn and beef decreased with age ( χ2=44.098, 20.106, P<0.001), while those of cod and mushroom increased with age ( χ2=32.315, 40.338, P<0.001). The positive rate of wheat (57.13%, χ2=42.273), tomato (57.01%, χ2=209.862), soybean (24.99%, χ2=92.580), crab (6.81%, χ2=33.201), shrimp (6.25%, χ2=47.863) were all the highest in 1-<3 years group among the 4 groups (all P<0.001), and the positive rate of chicken was the highest in 3-<6 years group (7.88%, χ2=29.875; P<0.001). Conclusions:Children in Qingdao have a high level of food intolerance, and the highest positive rate is for eggs. Milk, crab and shrimp should be focused on for boys, while tomatoes, cod and beef shoud be paid more attention to for girls. Children of different ages have different kinds of food intolerance, and their diets should be adjusted reasonably according to the characteristics.

Aim Toinvestigatetheinducementeffect of isatin on apoptosis of breast cancer cell line MCF-7 , andexploreitsdetailedmechanism.Methods MCF-7 cell lines were exposed to isatin at different concentra-tions(0,50,100,200 μmol·L-1 )for 48 h.Apop-totic features were demonstrated by nuclei staining with Hoechst 33258.Bcl-2,Bax and p53 mRNA were ana-lyzed by RT-PCR.Caspase-9 activation and mitochon-drial depolarization were assayed by flow cytometry. Bcl-2,Bax,p53 and cytochrome c proteins were ana-lyzedbyWesternblot.Results Isatininducesapopto-sis of MCF-7 cells.Furthermore,Bcl-2 expression was decreased and the ratio of Bcl-2 to Bax was significant-ly decreased by isatin.While,p53 expression relative-ly decreased.The mitochondrial transmembrane poten-tial was markedly reduced and the release of cyto-chrome c into the cytosol was increased after treatment with isatin.Simultaneously,caspase-9 was activated. Conclusions Isatinsignificantlyinducedtheapopto-sis of MCF-7 cells in vitro.These results strongly sug-gest that the p53 dependent mitochondrial pathway is involved in apoptosis.

Objective:To investigate the mRNA expression of the WIF-1 gene and the methylation of its promoter in breast can-cer, and to determine the correlation between the epigenetic aberrant WIF-1 DNA methylation and the clinicopathological significance of WIF-1 in breast cancer . Methods:RT-PCR and sensitive methylation-specific-PCR (MSP) were used to detect WIF-1 mRNA ex-pression and the methylation of the WIF-1 promoter in 30 breast cancer samples as well as in tumor-adjacent tissue samples and 9 be-nign breast tissues. Results:The WIF-1 mRNA expression in 30 breast cancer samples significantly decreased compared with those of the other two groups. In addition, WIF-1 methylation was more frequent in breast-tumor tissues compared with those in tumor-free tis-sues. Meanwhile, WIF-1 mRNA expression in breast cancer tissues involved the abnormal methylation of its promoter. Clinicopatholog-ical correlation analysis showed that the abnormal methylation of the WIF-1 gene promoter was not associated with age, TNM stage, histotype, or lymph node metastasis. Conclusion:WIF-1 mRNA expression loss due to abnormal methylation may be a crucial factor in breast cancer development and can thus be used in the prognosis and progression of the disease.

Objective:To investigate the methylation status of N-myc downstream regulated gene-1(NDRG-1) gene in breast cancer and the effects of methylation enzyme inhibitor 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-Aza-CdR) on growth and expression of NDRG-1 mRNA in human breast cancer cell line T47D.Methods:Sensitive methylation-specific (MSP)-PCR was used to detect the methylation status in the promoter regions of NDRG-1 gene in 47 samples of breast cancer and tumor adjacent tissues and 15 cases of benign breast disease. The change in expression of the tumor suppressor gene NDRG-1 mRNA in cultured T47D cells was detected by RT-PCR before and after 5-Aza-CdR treatment. Cell proliferation was observed by MTT assay.Results:Hypermethylation frequencies of NDRG-1 gene promoter were 46.8% in breast cancer tissues and 21.3% in tumor adjacent tissues. No hypermethylation of NDRG-1 gene was observed in the tissues of breast benign disease. The growth of T47D cells was suppressed obviously after 5-Aza-CdR treatment compared with the control group. RT-PCR showed that compared with the control group, NDRG-1 mRNA expression was increased at different concentrations in 5-Aza-CdR treatment group. Conclusion:The promoter methylation status of NDRG-1 gene was significantly related with the occurrence of breast carcinoma. 5-Aza-CdR could effectively reverse the methylation of NDRG-1 gene and recover its expression, thereby inhibiting the growth of tumor cells.

Background and purpose:CpG methylation in promoter region is an essential mechanism for the dysfunction of the tumor suppression gene.Folate metabolism provides active methyl for organism methylation.Methionine synthase(MS) plays a vital role in the process of folate metabolism.This study aimed to explore the genetic polymorphism of MS, CHD5 methylation and their association with breast cancer morbidity.Methods:Fortyseven patients with primary breast cancer, 52 healthy subjects and 15 breast hyperplasia patients were enrolled in this experiment.The mRNA expression of CHD5 was determined by reverse transcription PCR(RT-PCR).Methylationspecific PCR(MSP) was used to detect the methylation status of CHD5.Polymorphisms in the MS gene were analyzed through the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism(PCR-RFLP).Results:The mRNA expression of CHD5 in breast cancer tissues(0.27?0.19) and adjacent non-cancerous tissues(0.33?0.17) were both significantly lower than that in the breast hyperplasia tissues(0.67?0.14)(P
