ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the relationship between telomere length of bone marrow mononuclear cells and prognosis of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who received allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT).Methods:Telomere length of bone marrow mononuclear cells before transplantation, after transplantation and before donor mobilization as well as information related to follow-up of 33 AML patients who received allo-HSCT in the Affiliated Hospital of Guizhou Medical University between June 2020 and June 2021 were retrospectively analyzed. Telomere length was detected by using telomeric terminal restriction fragment (TRF) method. Telomere length was compared among patients with different prognoses. The recurrence within 1 year was treated as the gold standard and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to analyze the effect of telomere length before transplantation or before donor mobilization in the judgement of the recurrence within 1 year after transplantation. The patients were stratified according to the optimal threshold value of telomere length for patients or donors, and Kaplan-Meier method was used to compare the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with different stratification, and log-rank test was performed.Results:The median age of 33 patients was 34 years (14-61 years), and there were 17 males and 16 females; 31 patients were initially diagnosed with AML, 1 patient transferred from myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) to AML, and 1 patient transferred from chronic granulocytic leukemia (CML) to AML; 14 received identical sibling transplantation and 19 received haploidentical sibling transplantation. The median age of the donors was 30 years (20-65 years), including 24 males and 9 females. Telomere length of bone marrow mononuclear cells before mobilization in 33 donors was longer than that in patients before transplantation (33 cases) and at +30 d after transplantation (31 cases) [(6.67±0.31) kb, (6.40±0.33) kb, (6.48±0.33) kb, respectively; all P < 0.05], and the difference between patients before and at +30 d after transplantation was not statistically significant ( t = 0.89, P = 0.378), and the telomere length of bone marrow mononuclear cells in 11 patients +180 d after transplantation was (6.66±0.18) kb. The incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) after transplantation was 45.5% (15/33), the incidence of infection with clear imaging and pathogenic basis was 39.4% (13/33), the mortality rate within 1 year after transplantation was 3.0% (1/33), and the recurrence rate within 1 year after transplantation was 15.2% (5/33). There were no statistically significant differences in telomere length of donor pre-mobilization bone marrow mononuclear cells between the groups with and without aGVHD and between the infected and non-infected groups (all P > 0.05).Compared with patients who had not relapsed within 1 year after transplantation, telomere length of donor pre-mobilization bone marrow mononuclear cells was shorter in patients who relapsed within 1 year after transplantation [(6.39±0.19) kb vs. (6.72±0.30) kb, t = -3.23, P = 0.011], telomere length was longer in patients before transplantation [(6.75±0.16) kb vs. (6.35±0.36) kb, t = 4.17, P = 0.001]. ROC curve analysis showed that the optimal threshold values for telomere length of pre-transplantation and donor pre-mobilization bone marrow mononuclear cells were 6.48 and 6.42 kb, respectively for patients who relapsed within 1 year after transplantation. PFS in patients with pre-transplantation bone marrow mononuclear cells telomere length < 6.48 kb was better than that in patients with telomere length ≥ 6.48 kb ( P = 0.003); PFS in patients with pre-mobilization bone marrow mononuclear cells telomere length>6.42 kb was better than that in patients with telomere length ≤ 6.42 kb ( P < 0.001). Conclusions:In allo-HSCT for AML, patients have an increased risk of relapse within 1 year after transplantation when their pre-transplantation bone marrow mononuclear cells telomere length is long and the donor bone marrow mononuclear cells telomere length is short.

ABSTRACT

Pneumoconiosis is the most common occupational disease in China, which severely endangers people's health. Depending on the inhaled air pollutants, pneumoconiosis is classified as anthracosis, silicosis, asbestosis, etc., among which silicosis is the most common and serious. Silicosis is a systemic, poor prognostic disease characterized by diffuse fibrosis of lung tissue, which is caused by long-term exposure to dust with high levels of free silicon dioxide (SiO2) in the occupational environment. Appropriate treatment in time is important for the disease. Unfortunately, no effective drugs have been approved to delay or even reverse pulmonary fibrosis caused by SiO2. This review briefly classifies potent therapeutic drugs and compounds in term of mechanisms, providing the probability for clinical treatment of silicosis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the genotypes and clinical characteristics of thalassemia on children in Wuhan region.@*METHODS@#A total of 159 patients diagnosed as thalassemia in Maternal and Child Health Hospital of Hubei Province, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology from December 2017 to December 2019. The patients were retrospectively analyzed for their types of mutations, detection rates and clinical characteristics.@*RESULTS@#Among the 422 samples, 159 samples were finally diagnosed as thalassemia through genetic testing, the total detection rate was 37.68%. The detection rate of α, β and αβ-thalassemia was 17.30%, 20.14% and 0.24% respectively. Among α-thalassemia, αα/-SEA was the most common one, with a composition ratio of 68.49%(50/73), followed by αα/-α3.7 (19.18%), αα/-α4.2 (6.85%) and αα/ QS (1.37%). 9 types of β-thalassemia gene mutations were detected, and the most common three mutations were IVSII-654(C→T), with a composition ratio of 40.00%, CD41-42(-TTCT) (20.00%) and CD17(A→T)(16.47%). Two novel mutations of β-thalassemia, HBB: c.92-2A>T and HBB:c.-23A>G were detected. Among all the positive patients, 134 (84.28%) were 0-3 years old, 19 (11.95%) were 4-6 years old, and 6 (3.77%) were 7 years of age or older. There were 147 patients with mild anemia (92.45%), 11 patients with moderate anemia (6.92%), and 1 patients with severe anemia (0.63%). The MCV of 94(59.12%) patients was lower than 65 fL, and that of 51(32.08%) patients was between 65 fL and 80 fL, while 14(8.81%) patients was higher than 80 fL. MCV in β-thalassemia group was lower than that in α-thalassemia group, and the difference showed statistically significant (P<0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#The genotypes of thalassemia in children in Wuhan area are diverse, and most of them are mild thalassemia, and diagnosed under 3 years old. Children with β-thalassemia have smaller red blood cell volumes than those with α-thalassemia.

ABSTRACT

In this study, the regulatory effects of chlorogenic acid (CGA) on the expression of programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), as well as the role of interferon γ (IFN-γ), has been discussed using both in vitro and in vivo animal models. ESCC murine model was established according to the standard operating procedures (SOP) of Animal Experiment Center of Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. The expression of PD-L1 in esophageal tissues of murine models was analyzed using the microarray assay. Then, the results were verified by qRT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining, the molecular mechanism was explored in KYSE180 and KYSE510 ESCC cells in vitro. The results showed that CGA could suppress the expression of PD-L1 in tumor tissues in murine models significantly, rather than the expression in KYSE180 and KYSE510 ESCC cells in vitro. However, after the pretreatment of IFN-γ, the expression of PD-L1 was significantly increased, then it was down-regulated by CGA in both dose- and time-dependent manner. Meanwhile, the expression of interferon regulatory factor 1 (IRF1), an upstream regulatory factor of PD-L1, was suppressed by CGA in both KYSE180 and KYSE510 pretreated with IFN-γ, which was consistent with the expression of PD-L1. These results indicate that CGA down-regulates the expression of PD-L1 in ESCC via IFN-γ-IRF1 signaling pathway, providing the molecular theoretical basis for exploration of new treatment of ESCC.

ABSTRACT

D-Allose and its derivatives play important roles in the field of health care and food nutrition. Pure and well-defined D-allose derivatives can facilitate the elucidation of their structure-activity relationship as an essential step for drug design. The Lattrell-Dax epimerization, refers to the triflate inversion using nitrite reagent, is known as valuable method for the synthesis of rare D-allose derivatives. Here, the influence of protecting group patterns on the transformation efficiency of D-glucose derivatives into synthetically useful D-alloses and D-allosamines via the Lattrell-Dax epimerization was studied. For C3 epimerization of D-glucose derivatives bearing O2-acyl group, an anomeric configuration-dependent acyl migration from O2 to O3 was found. In addition, a neighbouring group participation effect-mediated S1 nucleophilic substitution of the D-glucosamine bearing C2 trichloroacetamido (TCA) group in the Lattrell-Dax epimerization was dependent upon anomeric configuration. Thus, the effect of anomeric configuration on the Lattrell-Dax epimerization of D-glucose suggests that β-D-glucosides with low steric hindrance at C2 should be better substrates for the synthesis of D-allose derivatives. Significantly, the efficient synthesis of the orthogonally protected D-allose 13 and D-allosamine 18 will serve well for further assembly of complex glycans.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate Notch1 protein expression of leukemic cells in children with pediatric Bcell acute lymphoblastic leukemia(B-ALL) and its effect on prognosis.Methods The expression of Notch1 protein of leukemic cells in bone marrow smears was detected by immunohistochemistry(SABC) in primarily diagnosed childhood ALL,including 63 cases of B-ALL and 14 cases of T-ALL,a group of 34 children with no malignancy served as controls.Reverse transcription-ploymerase chain reaction was used to assay Notch1 mRNA expression in ALL patients.Results The incidence of Notch1 expression was 31.7% in B-ALL patients,71.4% in T-ALL patients,and 8.8% in control group,respectively.Notch1 protein was aberrantly expressed in both B-ALL and T-ALL compared with the controls(P < 0.05,P < 0.001).Multivariate analysis revealed that the expression of Notch1 protein in B-ALL was not associated with patients' age,gender,WBC count at diagnosis(all P > 0.05),it had no influence on the early treatment response.Nevertheless,the Kaplan-Meier curve of event-free survival showed that,in the patients without Notch1 protein expression,the long-term event-free survival rate was as high as 92.7 %,in contrast,in the children with Notch 1 expression,the event-free survival was only 54.5 % (P =0.0054).Conclusions The expression of Notch 1 protein in pediatric B-ALL may predict a poor prognosis,and interfering with Notch1 signaling could be employed as a potential therapeutic target for those patients with Notch1 expression.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To study the effects of different doses of cigarette smoke extract (CSE) on the erectile function of male rats and the mechanism of smoking-induced erectile dysfunction (ED).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A total of 75 healthy male SD rats were randomly divided into Groups A (control), B (dimethyl sulphoxide [DMSO]), C (low-dose CSE), D (medium-dose CSE) and E (high-dose CSE). CSE models were established in male SD rats by hypodermic injection, and 60 days later observed for penile erection following subcutaneous injection of apomorphine. Then the rats were killed and the penile cavernous body obtained for the examination of NOS activity by chromatometry and the determination of Cx43 expression by laser scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy (LCSM).</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Compared with the control and DMSO groups, penile erection frequency, NOS activity and Cx43 expression in the penile cavernous tissue were significantly decreased in the CSE groups (P < 0.05), and the decrease was proportional to the increase of the doses of CSE. No statistically significant differences were observed between the control and DMSO groups (P > 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Cigarette smoke obviously reduces NOS activity and Cx43 expression in the penile cavernous tissue and seriously affects penile erection. The higher the dose, the more serious the influence. The decreases of NOS activity and Cx43 expression may be an important mechanism of ED.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To study the influence of the mutants of hepatitis B surface antigen on the cell immunity.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The recombinant plasmids of NS2Swt, NS2S126, NS2S133, NS2S141 and NS2S145 were transfected into Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and the expressed proteins were detected by means of ELISA. Following PHA-activated lymphoblasts proliferation assay and IFN-gamma, IL-2, IL-10 induction assay were done with these proteins.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>It was identified that these proteins of HBsAg could stimulate human lymphoblasts proliferation. Besides, there were no significant difference between the mutants and the wild. It was deserved to point out that the HBsAg with T126S mutation could increase the expression of IFN-gamma in the culture medium while the HBsAg with M133T mutation induced more expression of IL-10.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The results suggested that the cellular immune response to mutants of HBV might not be strengthened or weakened. But it should not be ignored that HBV T126S or M133T mutation may assert a potential impact on the cell immunity.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To develop human recombinant neutralizing IgG monoclonal antibodies to hepatitis A virus (HAV) by baculovirus expression system.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The heavy and light chain genes of two human-derived neutralizing Fab antibodies to HAV were cloned into baculovirus expression vector Pac-kappa-Fc and Pac-L-Fc, and further expressed in insect cells as IgG antibodies. The IgG products were purified and well characterized.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The baculovirus expressed McAb HAFc16 fully retained the specificity of binding to hepatitis A virus and the competition with mouse anti-hepatitis A virus McAb using ELISA. The viral neutralization assay in vitro demonstrated the retention of antibody function after expression of the human antibody in insect cells. The other expressed antibody HAFc78 also has the neutralizing activity but it is directed against different epitopes of HAV when compared with HAFc16.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The recombinant baculovirus/insect cells expressed human neutralizing IgG antibodies to hepatitis A virus retained all biological functions specific for hepatitis A virus. The results provided the possibility of using these antibodies to rapidly protect high risk or early exposure populations from hepatitis A virus infection.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>To study the difference between the mutant types and the wild type of HBsAg on the binding efficiency with antibodies in order to find some methods to detect the mutants.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The recombinant wild type of HBsAg and the mutants including 145 R, 133 T, 126 S, 141 E, 126 S+133 T, 126 S+133 T+145 R and 126 S+133 T+141 E were cloned, respectively. Then the expression vector containing the wild or mutant gene was transfected into COS7 cells, and the recombinant proteins were expressed. The proteins were detected with the routine HBsAg kits.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The binding efficiency with monoclonal antibodies of HBsAg expressed by 126 S was higher than that of the wild type, while the results of 145 R, 141 E, 126 S+133 T+145 R and 126 S+133 T+141 E were lower than that of the wild, and 133 T was similar to the wild. But most of the mutants had the same reactivity with the polyclonal antibody.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The effect of mutations on antibody binding differs depending on the amino acid involved and on the location within the "a" loop. So it is necessary to use polyclonal antibody or to find new kits to detect the mutants of HBsAg.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>To determine the antigenicity of recombinant hepatitis E virus ORF2 (rHEV ORF2) protein expressed in Pichia pastoris (P. pastoris).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>By using the rHEV ORF2 protein from E.coli as control, an indirect ELISA was adopted to identify the sensitivity, specificity and stability of rHEV ORF2 protein from P. pastoris in detection of HEV IgM and IgG antibody in sera from patients with hepatitis E. The reactivity of the rHEV ORF2 against 5 HEV ORF2 monoclonal antibodies (McAbs) was also tested.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The minimum concentration of coated antigen with which HEV IgG could be detected was 12.5 ng/ml, while the highest serum dilution to detect both IgM and IgG antibodies against HEV was 1:5 120. No cross-reaction was found with sera from patients with any other types of hepatitis. The 37 degree C acceleration test showed that the rORF2 was highly stable within 12 months at 4 degrees C. The 5 HEV ORF2 McAbs showed better reaction with the rORF2 from P. pastoris, especially that 4B2, 2E2, whose reaction against the rORF2 were 125 and 25 times respectively higher than that of rORF2 from E.Coli.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>There may be more extensive conformational epitopes in the rHEV ORF2 from P. pastoris. The excellent antigenicity, sensitivity and stability suggest that it can be served as a new candidate antigen for the development of diagnostic reagents of hepatitis E.</p>
