Objective To explore the clinical value of Z score in assessing coronary artery lesions (CAL) of children with Kawasaki disease. Methods The clinical records of 102 children with Kawasaki disease from January 2012 to December 2016 in Gansu Provincial Hospital were retrospectively analyzed. The internal diameter of left main coronary artery (LMCA) and right coronary artery ( RCA) was measured by echocardiography (ECHO),and the incidence of CAL was preliminarily judged. The Z scores of LMCA and RCA were calculated on the basis of the coronary artery diameter,the age of the children and the body surface area,and the incidence of CAL was judged again. Results A total of 22 cases(21. 6%) of CAL were found in 102 cases by ECHO examination,of which 18 cases(17. 6%) of LMCA lesions,and 22 cases(21. 6%) of RCA lesions. A total of 33 cases(32. 4%) of CAL were found by calculating the Z score of coronary artery, of which 29 cases(28. 4%) of LMCA lesions and 33 cases(32. 4%) of RCA lesions. There was significant difference between two methods for determining LMCA lesions (χ2=3. 35,P<0. 05),and there was no sig-nificant difference between two methods for determining RCA lesions (χ2=3. 01,P>0. 05). Z score of coro-nary artery was more accurate to detect the CAL in Kawasaki disease,especially LMCA lesions. A large coro-nary artery aneurysm was found in the patients with the largest Z score by selective coronary angiography. Conclusion The Z score can be more conductive to assess the CAL in children with Kawasaki disease,and the higher the Z score,the more serious the CAL is.

Objective To investigate the positive ratio of urine and gender difference of chronic kidney disease(CKD) with children in Lanzhou,a heavy pollution and underdeveloped city in northwest of China.Methods Through the Multistix 10 SG,the morning urine of the children were detected,which aged from 12 to 13 years old.Results The positive ratio of urine was 14.9% in subjects,18.2% in girls and 12.8 % in boys respectively.Furthermore,the positive ratio in girls showed statistically significant higher than boy's.(x2 =21.77,P < 0.01).Espcially,the ratios of hematuria and pyuria significantly increased in girls (x2 =17.52,P < 0.01;x2=7.95,P < 0.01).Conclusion The gender difference of the positive rate of urine was existed in our large samples.And there is a higher prositive rate of hematuria and pyuria in the girls.This investigation will enrich the epidemiological data of CKD in children(12 ~ 13 years old)in Lanzhou city.

Arabidopsis AtPRMT10 is a plant-specific type I protein arginine methyltransferase that can asymmetrically dimethylate arginine 3 of histone H4 with auto-methylation activity. Mutations of AtPRMT10 derepress FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) expression resulting in a late-flowering phenotype. Here, to further investigate the biochemical characteristics of AtPRMT10, we analyzed a series of mutated forms of the AtPRMT10 protein. We demonstrate that the conserved "VLD" residues and "double-E loop" are essential for enzymatic activity of AtPRMT10. In addition, we show that Arg54 and Cys259 of AtPRMT10, two residues unreported in animals, are also important for its enzymatic activity. We find that Arg13 of AtPRMT10 is the auto-methylation site. However, substitution of Arg13 to Lys13 does not affect its enzymatic activity. In vivo complementation assays reveal that plants expressing AtPRMT10 with VLD-AAA, E143Q or E152Q mutations retain high levels of FLC expression and fail to rescue the late-flowering phenotype of atprmt10 plants. Taken together, we conclude that the methyltransferase activity of AtPRMT10 is essential for repressing FLC expression and promoting flowering in Arabidopsis.
