ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate polymorphisms of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor gene (KIR) in renal transplant recipients from southern Zhejiang.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>KIR genotypes were analyzed by PCR-SSP in 416 renal transplant recipients, and the genotype frequencies were compared with populations from Eastern China and worldwide.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>All 16 known KIR genes were detected in the renal transplant recipients, and KIR2DL4, 3DL2-3, 3PD1 were found in all. As a pseudogene, 2DP1 has a high genotype frequency (99%). The frequencies of KIR2DL1, 2DL3, 3DL1, 2DS4 have ranged from 92.1% to 98.8%. Compared with 11 groups in Eastern China and other countries, the KIR2DL2 phenotype frequency was higher (34.6%) than those of Shanghai, Zhejiang and Jiangsu populations (P<0.05). Among 41 genotypes, three have not been reported previously. The most common genotype was AA1, with a frequency of 43.51%, which was significantly lower than those of Jiangsu and Northern Zhejiang.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Renal transplant recipients from southern Zhejiang share similar features with Eastern China Han population with regard to KIR polymorphisms, but also have unique frequencies for KIR genotypes.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the role of bacteria in the etiology of chronic prostatitis.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A total of 162 complete prostate specimens were obtained at autopsy from organ donors (aged 20 -38 yr) who died of non-prostatic diseases. Each of the samples from the peripheral zone of the prostate was divided into two parts, one for routine pathological examination and immunohistochemical studies of interleukin (IL)-1beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and the nerve growth factor (NGF), and the other for PCR assay to detect the bacterial 16S rRNA gene (16S rDNA).</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Fifty-one (31.5%) of the total specimens presented pathological changes of chronic prostatitis, of which 44 had mild focal stromal, 5 mild focal stromal and periglandular and 2 mild focal periglandular inflammation. The positive rate of 16S rDNA was 19.1% (31/162), 51.0% (26/51) in the chronic prostatitis and 4.5% (5/111) in the non-prostatitis specimens (chi2 = 29.783, P < 0.01). In the specimens with chronic prostatitis, the expressions of IL-1beta, TNF-alpha and NGF were significantly higher in the 16S rDNA positive than in the 16S rDNA negative group (P < 0.01).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Bacterial inflammation may play an important role in the etiology of chronic prostatitis.</p>

ABSTRACT

This study was aimed to investigate the correlation of heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) expression with migration ability of human multiple myeloma cells. The HSP90 mRNA expression and migration change of human multiple myeloma cell line (U266) were detected by RT-PCR and Transwell chamber respectively after treatment of U266 cells with final concentration 50, 100, 150, 200 nmol/L of bortezomib (proteosome inhibitor) for 4 hours. The results indicated that along with the increasing of bortezomib concentration, the expression level of HSP90alpha mRNA in U266 cells was enhanced, while no obvious increase of HSP90beta mRNA expression was observed in spite of statistical difference as a whole (p<0.05), but with the increasing of drug concentration in cells, their migration ability gradually decreased (p<0.05). It is concluded that the correlation of HSP90 expression with migration ability of human multiple myeloma cells exists.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to explore the effects of the stromal cell-derived factor (SDF-1) and chemokine receptors (CXCR4) on chemotaxis of cord blood AC133(+) cells. The optimal SDF-1 concentration was determined in Transwell System. The cell migration was calculated from the number of cells passing through polycarbonate membrane with 8 microm pore. The expressions of CXCR4 in fresh and cultured cord blood AC133(+) cells were analyzed by flow cytometry with two-color direct immunofluorescence. The results showed that the chemotactic rate of fresh cord blood AC133(+) cells increased along with increasing concentrations of SDF-1, however, it tended to be stable when the concentration of SDF-1 reached 150 ng/ml. There was no difference in the chemotactic rate of cord blood AC133(+) cells between the group with SDF-1 adding CXCR4-blocking antibody and the group without SDF-1. When AC133(+) cells were cultured in vitro with hemopoietic growth factors, the expression of CXCR4 increased at the early stage, but decreased gradually along with time extending. In conclusion, there was correlation between the chemotactic rate of AC133(+) cells and the expression of chemokine receptor CXCR4.

ABSTRACT

Objective To develop a Simple,accurate,rapid,economic,large-scale detection method for the detection of singe nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) metabolic enzymes,using polymerase chain reaction with confronting two-pair primers (PCR-CTPP).Methods The primers of CYP1A1 (A4889G),EPHX1 (A416G) and NQO1 (C609T) were designed for PCR-CTPP,and the PCR conditions were optimized.The results of genotyping were verified by DNA sequencing.The above SNPs were detected by the PCR-CTPP detection method in a randomly selected 183 healthy individuals of Han ethnicity.The genotype frequencies were analyzed and compared with people from other ethnicities.Results The allele-specific bands of CYP1A1 (A4889G),EPHX1 (A416G) and NQO1 (C609T) were successfully amplified by PCR-CTPP under the optimal conditions and the results of genotyping were consistent with DNA sequencing.Among 183 healthy Han individuals,the genotypic distributions of CYP1A1 (A4889G),EPHX1 (A416G) and NQO1 (C609T) showed that the wild-type,homozygous variants,and heterozygotes were 103 (56.3%),8 (4.4%),72 (39.3%) and 142 (77.6%),4 (2.2%),37(20.2% ),60(32.8% ),32 (17.5%),91 (49.7%) respectively.The distributions of genotypes were all in accordance with the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (P>0.05),with statistical differences and with other ethnic populations(P<0.05).Conclusion The SNPs of metabolic enzymes can be detected by PCR-CTPP method which is simple,accurate,rapid,economic and with large scale.PCR-CTPP can be used for large scale clinical and epidemiological screening.

ABSTRACT

This study was purposed to investigate the mechanism of C-reactive protein (CRP) on proliferation of U266 cells. The human multiple myeloma cell line U266 was incubated with human CRP (0, 5, 10, 20 mg/L) for 24 hours, then the proliferation level of U266 cells was detected by using blood analyser. The mRNA expressions of survivin and HSP90alpha were examined by RT-PCR. The results showed that the proliferation ratio was increased, as compared with the control group (p<0.05); furthermore, the mRNA levels of survivin and HSP90alpha were up-regulated in proportion to the increased CRP concentrations. There was significant correlation between expression of survivin and HSP90alpha (r=0.737, p<0.0001) in incubated cells. It is concluded that CRP can stimulate the proliferation of MM cells directly by up-regulating the expression of survivin and HSP90alpha in MM cells. CRP can be regarded as a potential target for MM treatment.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To report a mathematical function that characterizes the double-pass line spread function (LSF) of the human eye. Determining analytical functions that represent the double-pass LSF is important because it allows modeling the optical performance of the eye.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Optical section retinal images, generated in normal human eyes using a modified slit-lamp biomicroscope, were analyzed to derive the double-pass LSF by plotting the intensity distribution of laser light reflected/ scattered from the vitreoretinal interface. Three mathematical functions (Lorentzian, Gaussian, exponential) were fitted to the double-pass LSF and the root mean square error (RMSE) was calculated to provide a measure of the goodness of fit.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The Lorentzian function provided the best representation of the double-pass LSF of normal human eyes. The full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the Lorentzian fitted curve was positively correlated with age, indicating that the double-pass LSF broadens with age. Furthermore, the goodness of fit of the Lorentzian function was significantly better in younger subjects as compared with older subjects, suggesting that the fitted function to the double-pass LSF may vary according to age.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The results demonstrate an age-related change in the double-pass LSF width and the goodness of fit of the Lorentzian function.</p>
