OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the regulatory role of long non-coding RNA Kcnq1ot1 in osteoclast differentiation, osteogenic differentiation and osteoporosis.@*METHODS@#The expression of lnc-Kcnq1ot1, Bglap, Runx2, Alp, Bsp, Nfatc1, Mmp9, Ctsk and Oscar were detected by real-time quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR) in the femoral bones from mouse models of postmenopausal osteoporosis (ovariectomized mice, @*RESULTS@#The expression of lnc-Kcnq1ot1 was significantly upregulated during osteoblast differentiation but downregulated in the bone tissues of osteoporotic mice and during osteoclast differentiation (@*CONCLUSIONS@#Our data demonstrate that lnc-Kcnq1ot1 promotes osteogenic differentiation and alleviates osteoclast differentiation, suggesting the potential of lnc-Kcnq1ot1 as a therapeutic target against osteoporosis.

Objective To analyze the gene expression profiles in response to ΔNp63α overexpression, and screen the potential target genes or signal pathways regulated by ΔNp63α. Methods To generate ΔNp63α overexpressed SiHa cells ( SiHa-ΔNp63α) and the control cells ( SiHa-NC) , recombinant lentivirus transfection was performed. Microarray was applied to detect the change of gene expression profiles, and the results were analyzed with bioinfor-matic software. Quantitative real-time PCR was used to validate the expression levels of selected genes. Results Among the 1405 differentially expressed genes which were statistically significant, >1. 5 fold increase or reduce of gene expression, 843 were up-regulated and 562 were down-regulated in SiHa cells with ΔNp63α overexpression. The genes were mostly involved in cell development,cycle regulation, signal transduction, communication, adhe-sion, metastasis and invasion, etc. The involved signal pathways consisted of antigen processing and presentation, cytokine-cytokine receptor interaction, cell adhesion, complement and coagulation cascades, and so on. Conclu-sion The research on the potential target genes or mediated signal pathways regulated by ΔNp63α could be helpful to explain the development of cervical cancer.

In order to obtain the lead compound for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), in this study, therapeutic efficacy of three bispecific antibodies (BsAB-1, BsAB-2 and BsAB-3) against both hIL-1beta and hIL-17 were compared on CIA model mice. First, by ELISA method we compared the binding capacity of the three bispecific antibodies to the two antigens. The results showed that all three antibodies could simultaneously bind both antigens, among these antibodies, BsAB-1 was superior over BsAB-2 and BsAB-3. CIA model was established with chicken type II collagen (CII) and developed RA-like symptoms such as ankle swelling, skin tight, hind foot skin hyperemia. The CIA mice were treated with three antibodies once every two days for total of 29 days. Compared with the CIA model mice, the RA-like symptoms of the antibody treated-mice significantly relieved, while the BsAB-1 treated-mice were almost recovered. CII antibody level in the serum and cytokines (IL-2, IL-1beta, IL-17A and TNF-alpha) expression in the spleen were examined. Compared with the CIA model mice, all three antibodies could significantly reduce CII antibody and cytokine expression levels. BsAB-1 antibody was more potent than BsAB-2 and BsAB-3. In summary, BsAB-1 is superior over BsAB-2 and BsAB-3 in amelioration of RA symptoms and regulation of CII antibody production and pro-inflammatory cytokine expression, therefore, BsAB-1 can be chosen as a lead compound for further development of drug candidate for treatment of RA.

Objective To carry out the clinical validation of a domestic HBsAg kit to evaluate its application value. Methods 543 serum samples with HBsAg ELISA values of S/CO ≥ 0. 7 were tested by HBsAg confirmatory test. Specific anti-HBs reagent and control reagent were added separately into duplicate wells of HBsAg ELISA plate, in which test sample was also added. After incubation at 37℃, HBsAg was detected by routine ELISA, and the inhibition rate was calculated using absorbanee (A) result of anti-HBs reagent well and control reagent well according to the provided formula. The sample was confirmed as HBsAg positive when the inhibition rate was≥50%. For HBsAg weakly positive samples, "prolonged confirmatory test" (conjugate reaction time was prolonged to 120 rain) was applied to increase the sensitivity. 39 samples were randomized selected for testing and comparison with Abbott Murex confirmatory test. Results 543 serum samples in total were tested by the confirmatory test. Among the 504 cases which showed positive reaction in screening HBsAg ELISA, 89 ( 17. 7% ) were confirmed as negative. According to their S/CO value of the screening HBsAg test, the ratio of negative cases / tested eases in the group were:S/CO≤<5.0, 87/143 (60. 8% ) ;5.0 < S/CO ≤ 10. 0,0/25 (0) ;10. 0 < S/CO ≤ 15.0, 1/21 (4. 8% ) ;15.0 < S/CO ≤ 20. 0, 1/23 (4. 4% ) ;S/CO 20. 0, 0/292(0). Among 39 cases with negative HBsAg (0. ≤<S/CO≤1.0), 2 cases were confirmed as positive by prolonged confirmatory test. 39 cases with positive HBsAg ( 1.0 < S/CO≤20. 0) were confirmed as positive both by domestic and Murex confirmatory tests. Conclusions The domestic confirmatory test kit is suitable for clinical use to confirm the results of samples tested by domestic HBsAg ELISA kits. Weakly positive (S/CO≤5.0) serum samples detected by primary HBsAg ELISA should be tested with confirmatory test, which is not necessary for strongly positive (S/CO 20. 0) samples. More clinical studies should be performed to establish a proper cut-off for the S/CO value of weakly positive samples.

Objective To investigate the prevalence of cytotoxin associated gene(cagA)and vacuolating cytotoxin gene(vacA)subtypes of Helicobacter pylori(H.pylori)in patients with upper gastrointestinal disease in Shijiazhuang area,and to assess the relationship between cagA,vacA subtypes and H.pylori related gastrointestinal disease.Methods Totally 55 H.pylori strains were isolated from patients with chronic gastrointestinal disease in Shijiazhuang area.Bacterial DNA from all these strains was extractedThe prevalence and genetic diversity in cagA 3′ region,vacA signal sequence and middle-region alleles were studied by the technique of polymerase chain reaction(PCR).Results In Shijiazhuang area,H.pylori cagA positive rate was 89.1%(49/55);cagA positive rate was not significant ly different between chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer(?~2=0.376,P=0.540).There were three vacA subtypes,including s1a/ m2 90.4%(47/52),s1a/ m1b-m2 5.8%(3/52)and s1a/ m1b 3.8%(2/52).The vacA s1a/m2 subtype showed no significant difference between chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer(?~2=0,P=1.000).Conclusion cagA~+and vacA s1a/m2 subtype of H.pylori are predominant in patients with upper gastrointestinal disease in Shijiazhuang area.There is no relationship between cagA,vacA subtypes and H.pylori related gastrointestinal disease.

Objective To observe the changes of the multifocal electroretinograph (mf-ERG) in commotio retinae. Methods The affected eyes (traumatic group) and the fellow eyes (control group) of 31 patients with unilateral commotio retinae were examined by RETI scan 3.15 system. The responses of 61 retinal regions were recorded, and the average amplitude densities of the N 1 (the first negative) wave and P 1 (the first positive) wave in different regions of retinal were analyzed. Results The average amplitude densities of 1-4 rings in N 1 wave and 1-5 rings in P 1 wave were much lower in traumatic group than those in the control. Conclusions The average amplitude densities of N 1 wave and P 1 wave of mf-ERG in retinal affected regions decreases markedly in eyes with commotio retina; mf-ERG may provide the quantificational and orientational detection for the visual ability of the eyes with commotio retinae.
