Objective To investigate the changes of serum milk fat globule epidermal growth factor 8(MFG-E8) levels in pa-tients with carotid atherosclerosis(CAS) ,and the correlation analysis between MFG-E8 and blood glucose ,blood lipid and inflam-matory factors .Methods From October 2015 to February 2017 ,120 patients with carotid atherosclerosis were selected and divided into control group ,thickening group and plaque group ,40 cases in each group .The levels of blood glucose ,blood lipid ,serum MFG-E8 and other inflammatory factors of the three groups were compared ,and the correlation between serum MFG-E8 and other indica-tors .was analyzed .Results The levels of total cholesterol(TC) ,low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL-C) ,tumor necrosis factor alpha(TNF-α) ,and high sensitive C reactive protein (hs-CRP) in plaque group were significantly higher than those in thickening group and control group ,the difference was statistically significant(P<0 .05);the levels of MFG-E8 and interleukin-10(IL-10) in plaque group were significantly lower than those in thickening group and control group ,the difference was statistically significant (P<0 .05);there was no significant difference in the levels of fasting blood glucose (FPG) ,triglyceride(TG) and high-density lipo-protein cholesterol(HDL-C) between the three groups(P>0 .05) .Serum MFG-E8 was negatively correlated with carotid intima-media thickness ,FPG ,TC ,LDL-C ,TNF-αand hs-CRP(P<0 .05)and positively correlated with TG and IL-10(P<0 .05) ,and there was no correlation between serum MFG-E8 and HDL-C(r=0 .105 ,P=0 .255) .Conclusion Serum MFG-E8 can be used as a new index to assess the severity of CAS and it is worthy of clinical application .

Objective To investigate the application valve of bFGF to improve the viability of trans-plantation flap in Wistar rat. Methods Forty-eight Wistar rats were randomly divided into two groups based on the age: group A,B(1.5 month old, every group was 12 rats) and group C,D (3 month old, every group was 12 rats). After an ischemic model completed, recombinant bovine basic fibroblast growth factor (rb-bFGF) was given to groups A and C in ischemie zone by vascularization flap injection and the equality of normal saline to groups B and D. 14 days postoperatively, the muscular tissue was sent for histology, the blood vessel density was calculated by image analysis, and positive VEGF was detected by immunohistochem-istry. Results The member of capillaries and positive VEGF were more in group A than that in B, and also were morein group C than D(P < 0.05), but there were not statistic difference between group A and C (P > 0.05). Conclusion Recombinant bovine bFGF can stimulate angiogenesis and improve the ischemie vascu-larization flap of rat, which is not associated with their age.

Lactoferrin in milk is a multifunctional protein. In addition, lactoferrin has antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic activity. In this study, the N-terminus from porcine lactoferrin (PLF-N) was designed to express the antimicrobial action of recombinant porcine lactoferrin. We cloned a 1077 bp fragment of the PLF gene from mammary gland tissue of the lactating sow at the third day. Comparing nucleotide sequence with four strains of PLF gene published on GenBank, the homology was more than 99%. With the reference template of the cloned fragment of PLF-N and optimizing codon bias, we synthesized the gene of N-terminus encoding porcine lactoferrin (PLF-NS). The high expression gene of PLF-NS was cloned into the fusion expression vector pET30b and expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3). After induced with Isopropyl beta-D-1-Thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG), the target fusion protein was successfully expressed and identified in inclusion bodies by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. The protein had a molecular weight of 42 kDa and accounted for 32% of the total cellular protein. After purification and renaturation, the purity of the expressed protein was 98%. The expressed PLF-NS protein showed obviously antibacterial activity. This method provides an excellent way for high expression of antimicrobial proteins when optimizing codon bias.

To evaluate the immune responses of recombinant Lactobacillus casei 393 expressing Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Viral (PEDV) N protein as oral vaccine, n gene of PEDV was subcloned into the expression vector pPG-1, and then transformed into L. casei 393 by electroporation, resulting in recombinant strain pPG-1-n/L, casei 393. The recombinant strains were induced to express interest protein, which was detected by Western blotting, immunofluorescence microscopy and the whole bacteria ELISA. And then BALB/C mice were used as an animal model immunized with recombinant strains by oral administration, and the immune efficacy was analyzed. The recombinant PEDV N protein showed the antigenic specificity, and was located on the bacterial cell walls of pPG-1-n transformed L. casei. The results of ELISA showed that the mice immunized with recombinant strains could produce remarkable special sIgA level in the feces, and high level of anti-PEDV N protein IgG in the serum (P < 0.01), but the induced antibodies in serum did not demonstrated neutralizing effect. Statistical significant difference was observed among the spleen lymphocyte proliferation index (LPI) among the immunization groups of mice and control groups. And there was significant increase. of IFN-gamma and IL-4 contents in the supernatant of spleen cell culture in immunized group. In conclusion, the oral immunizations with recombinant L. casei 393 can induce significant specific mucosal PEDV N-specific IgA response as well as serum IgG responses, and can evoke both mucosal immune and system immune responses.
