ABSTRACT

: To evaluate the application of medical magnifying loupes in diagnosis of oral mucosal diseases. Twenty-four patients with plaque-type oral lichen planus or homogeneous oral leukoplakia were inspected by naked eyes or assistance with magnifying loupes. Histopathological results were used as the gold standard to evaluate the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the two methods in clinical diagnosis. Questionnaires were used to evaluate the subjective effect of magnifying loupes on the diagnosis efficiency of oral mucosal diseases and to explore the most suitable parameters for application. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of medical magnifying loupes for the identification of plaque-type oral lichen planus and homogeneous oral leukoplakia were 94.74%, 100.00% and 95.83%, respectively, which were significantly higher than those of naked eye inspection (89.47%, 80.00% and 87.50%). The effective rate of magnifying loupes assisted diagnosis was 91.76% according to physicians' subjective evaluation. The most suitable parameters were 3.5 times magnification and working distance. The medical magnifying loupes can effectively improve the efficiency of the inspection and diagnosis of oral mucosal diseases, and have the characteristics of convenience and real-time. The recommended clinical parameters are 3.5 times magnification and working distance.

ABSTRACT

Spinal fusion is a standard operation for treating moderate and severe intervertebral disc diseases. In recent years, the proportion of three-dimensional printing interbody fusion cage in spinal fusion surgery has gradually increased. In this paper, the research progress of molding technology and materials used in three-dimensional printing interbody fusion cage at present is summarized. Then, according to structure layout, three-dimensional printing interbody fusion cages are classified into five types: solid-porous-solid (SPS) type, solid-porous-frame (SPF) type, frame-porous-frame (FPF) type, whole porous cage (WPC) type and others. The optimization process of three-dimensional printing interbody fusion cage and the advantages and disadvantages of each type are analyzed and summarized in depth. The clinical application of various types of 3D printed interbody fusion cage was introduced and summarized later. Lastly, combined with the latest research progress and achievements, the future research direction of three-dimensional printing interbody fusion cage in molding technology, application materials and coating materials is prospected in order to provide some reference for scholars engaged in interbody fusion cage research and application.

ABSTRACT

Background@#Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) leads to thinning of scalp hair and affects 60%~70% of the adult population worldwide. Developing more effective treatments and studying its mechanism are of great significance. Previous clinical studies have revealed that hair growth is stimulated by 650-nm red light. @*Objective@#This study aimed to explore the effect and mechanism of 650-nm red light on the treatment of AGA by using ex vivo hair follicle culture. @*Methods@#Human hair follicles were obtained from hair transplant patients with AGA. Hair follicles were cultured in Williams E medium and treated with or without 650-nm red light.Real-time RT-PCR and immunofluorescence staining were used to detect the expression level of genes and proteins in hair follicles, respectively. RNA-sequencing analysis was carried out to reveal the distinct gene signatures upon 650 nm treatment. @*Results@#Low-level 650 nm red light promoted the proliferation of human hair follicles in the experimental cultured-tissue model. Consistently, 650 nm red light significantly delayed the transition of hair cycle from anagen to catagen in vitro. RNA-seq analysis and gene clustering for the differentially expressed genes suggests that leukocyte transendothelial migration, metabolism, adherens junction and other biological process maybe involved in stimulation of hair follicles by 650-nm red light treatment. @*Conclusion@#The effect of 650-nm red light on ex vivo hair follicles and the transcriptome set which implicates the role of red light in promoting hair growth and reversing of miniaturization process of AGA were identified.

ABSTRACT

Background and Objectives@#miR-450a-5p was involved in fat formation, however, its role in insulin resistance remains unclear. This study investigated the effects of miR-450a-5p on endothelial cells, with the aim of finding a potential target for diabetes mellitus. @*Methods@#and Results: Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were treated with low-glucose, high-glucose, methylglyoxal (MGO), and insulin alone or in combination with MGO. The expression of miR-450a-5p in treated cells was measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) assays. The cell activity, migration and fat formation were determined by MTT experiments, Transwell assay and oil red O staining. The expressions of eNOS/ AKT pathway-related proteins in cells were assessed by Western blot (WB) analysis. Furthermore, the target gene of miR-450a-5p was analyzed by double-luciferase reporter analysis, and its effects on eNOS/AKT pathway were estimated. We found that the expression of miR-450a-5p was decreased obviously in endothelial cells treated with high-glucose and MGO. In vitro cell experiments showed that MGO could not only promote the activity of endothelial cells, but also accelerate cell migration and fat accumulation, which, however, could be reversed by up-regulation of miR-450a-5p. Moreover, MGO inhibited eNOS/AKT pathway activation and NO release mediated by insulin, and such effects were reversed by up-regulation of miR-450a-5p. Furthermore, CREB was the target gene for miR-450a-5p, had an activation effect on the eNOS/AKT pathway. @*Conclusions@#Up-regulated miR-450a-5p eliminates MGO-induced insulin resistance via targeting CREB, and therefore could be used as a potential target to improve insulin resistance and treat patients with diabetes-related diseases.

ABSTRACT

Based on the rDNA sequence of Pichia pastoris, a multi-copy gene expression vector of transglutaminase (pPICZα-rDNA-mtg) was constructed and transformed to the host strain (pGAP9-pro/GS115) expressing pro peptide, to obtain the co-expression strain pro/rDNA-mtg (GS115). Real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR (qPCR) was used to analyze transglutaminase gene copy number in the 4 positive strains. We further studied the effect of gene copy on the enzyme production of recombinant Pichia pastoris as well as high-density fermentation of higher expression strain in a 3-L fermenter. The mtg copy numbers of the 4 positive strains were 2.21, 3.36, 5.72 and 7.62 (mtg-2c, mtg-3c, mtg-6c and mtg-8c), respectively, and the enzyme production capacity and protein expression level were mtg-3c>mtg-2c>mtg-6c>mtg-8c. Mtg-3c and mtg-6c of high-density fermentation had the highest enzymatic activity and enzymatic activity per unit wet weight in the supernatant of 3.12 U/mL, 52.1 U/g (wet weight) and 2.07 U/mL and 36.5 U/g (wet weight), respectively. In terms of enzyme activity per unit wet weight, mtg-3c is 1.4 times higher than that of mtg-6c. The activity of purified enzyme (mtg-3c) was up to 7.21 U/mL and the protein concentration was 437.2 μg/mL. By analyzing the effect of mtg copy number on the enzyme production of recombinant strains, mtg-3c is suitable for the co-expression of two genes (pro and mtg) in pro/rDNA-mtg, and its enzyme activity is related to higher protein secretion of the strain.

ABSTRACT

Objective Exploring the imaging findings of solitary lesions in spine to improve the diagnosis level of these diseases. Methods 158 cases of solitary lesions in spine confirmed by pathology from Jan 2011 to Jan 2018 were retrospectively analyzed on bone destruction, intralesional density, signal features, marginal sclerosis, boundary, soft tissue mass, periosteum reaction and involvement of intervertebral disc. Results There were 100 cases of primary bone tumors and tumor-like lesions, 25 cases of metastatic tumors and 33 cases of infectious diseases. 87 male and 71 female were included, with a mean age of (46.3 ± 7.2) years (range: 5 ~76).There were 13 cases (8.23%) of benign bone tumors and 11 cases (6.96%) of benign tumor-like lesions, 21 cases (13.29%) of intermediate bone tumors and 4 cases (2.53%) of intermediate tumor-like lesions, 76 cases (48.10%) of malignant tumors and 33 cases (20.89%) of infectious diseases. Osteochondroma and fibrous dysplasia were the most common type of benign bone tumors and tumor-like lesions, respectively. Giant cell tumor and langerhans cell histiocytosis were the most common type of intermediate bone tumors and tumor-like lesions, respectively. Metastases and solitary plasmacytoma were the most common types of malignant tumors. Tuberculosis was the most common type of infectious diseases. Benign lesions usually have no or mild bone destruction. Clear boundary and marginal sclerosis were common, while periosteum reaction and soft tissue mass were rarely seen in benign lesions. Bone destruction with soft tissue mass and periosteum reaction were common in intermediate and malignant lesions. Moreover, malignant tumors usually had obscure boundary. Involvement of adjacent intervertebral disc was the most significant difference between infectious diseases and tumors and tumor-like lesions.Conclusions Solitary lesions in spine have certain regularity, which is helpful for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of benign, malignant tumors and tumor-like lesions and infectious diseases.

ABSTRACT

Gibberellin is an essential plant hormone that plays an important regulatory role throughout the life cycle of higher plants. A total of 23 genes involved in gibberellin action were identified from Phyllostachys edulis genome, including 8 GA20ox and 1 GA3ox genes involved in the gibberellin biosynthesis, 8 GA2ox genes involved in the metabolism of gibberellin, 2 GID1 genes involved in gibberellin perception, 2 GID2 genes and 2 DELLA genes involved in gibberellin signal transduction. Phylogenetic analysis of these genes from Arabidopsis, Oryza sativa and Phyllostachys edulis revealed that gibberellin biosynthesis, metabolism, and signaling pathways are conserved in these species. Treatment of seeds and seedlings of bamboo with exogenous gibberellin revealed that gibberellin significantly increased seed germination rate and stem elongation of seedlings, and had the best concentration of action. The expression levels of GA20ox and GA3ox genes in the bamboo seedlings were down-regulated and the expression of the active gibberellin-degrading gene GA2ox was up-regulated after GA3 treatment, and the transcriptional level of the gibberellin receptor GID1 and the positive regulatory gene GID2 was significantly increased while the expression of the negative regulatory gene DELLA was decreased. These genes have significant differences in the expression of different spatial locations of bamboo shoot stems, GA20ox, GA3ox, GA2ox, GID1 and GID2 are all expressed in the upper part of bamboo shoots, while the repressor gene DELLA accumulates at the bottom of the shoots and is hardly expressed at the top.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To analyze the correlation between integrin β1, focal adhesion kinase (FAK), extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) of hypertrophic scar (HS) and post injury time in burn patients in scar remodeling stage.@*Methods@#Thirty-four patients with 34 HS specimens admitted to Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery of Chengdu No.2 Hospital and Institute of Burn Research of the First Affiliated Hospital of Army Medical University (originally the Third Military Medical University) from May 2013 to April 2016 were recruited by convenient sampling method, and normal skin specimens were obtained from donor sites of another 6 patients from the above-mentioned departments who had scar resection and skin grafting for this cross-sectional and observational study. Vancouver Scar Scale (VSS) was used to assess the height, vascularity, pigmentation, and pliability of scars. Diasonograph was used to assess scar thickness. Immunohistochemical method was used to observe the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and epidermis of scar and normal skin. Correlations between the post injury time and the scar thickness, the post injury time and the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in epidermis of scar, the post injury time and the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis of scar, the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and those in epidermis of scar were analyzed by Pearson correlation analysis. Locally estimated scatterplot smoothing curve fitting line was used to demonstrate the non-linear regression relationship between the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and those in epidermis of scar, the scar thickness and the post injury time.@*Results@#(1) The total VSS score of scars of patients was (8.3±2.3) points, with height scored (2.2±0.7) points, vascularity scored (2.0±0.8) points, pigmentation scored (2.3±0.7) points, and pliability scored (1.9±0.7) points. The thickness of scar was (2.8±1.1) mm. (2) The expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and epidermis of scar were more than those in normal skin. (3) There was significantly positive correlation between the scar thickness and the post injury time (r=0.39, P<0.05). There was significantly positive correlation between the expression of integrin β1 in epidermis of scar and the post injury time (r=0.33, P<0.05). There were no significantly correlations between the expressions of FAK and ERK1/2 in epidermis of scar and the post injury time (r=-0.03, -0.04, P>0.05). There was significantly negative correlation between the expression of FAK in dermis of scar and the post injury time (r=-0.34, P<0.05). There were no significantly correlations between the expressions of integrin β1 and ERK1/2 in dermis of scar and the post injury time (r=0.07, -0.23, P>0.05). There were significantly positive correlation between the expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and those in epidermis of scar (r=0.70, 0.60, 0.64, P<0.01). (4) The expressions of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 in dermis and epidermis of scar were changed from downtrend in 1 to 2 months post injury to uptrend in 2 to 3 months post injury, which reached the peak around 3 to 4 months post injury. Hereafter the expressions of mechanical signaling molecules in epidermis of scar were gradually declined, while the expressions of mechanical signaling molecules in dermis of scar were at a quite high level within half a year post injury. Scar thickness was steadily increased after 1 month post injury.@*Conclusions@#In scar remodeling stage of burn patients, the HS thickness increases continuously along with the increasing post injury time in the early stage of scar formation. The vulnerability of integrin β1, FAK, and ERK1/2 of HS to external mechanical stimuli increases gradually within 4 months post injury.

ABSTRACT

Objective To compare the value of fractional anisotropy(FA)of MR diffusion tensor imaging(DTI) and Glasgow coma scale(GCS) at admission for judging the injury severity and prognosis of diffuse axonal injury (DAI). Methods Thirty-four patients with DAI adopted the GCS score to evaluate the conscious disturbance levels at admission and conducted the DTI examination within 2 weeks. Twenty-three individuals undergoing healthy physical examination conducted the DTI examination. The FA values of visuality lesion area in various sites,healthy side symmetric site and cerebral midline site were measured. The reduction degree of mean FA value at midline site and visuality lesions were measured. The correlation between GCS score,mean FA value reduction degree in visuality lesions and mean FA value at cerebral midline site with consciousness disorder time and recovery degree in half a year after injury was analyzed. Results The reduction degree of mean FA value at cerebral midline site was significantly correlated with consciousness disorder time and recovery degree in half a year after injury(r= 0. 519,P=0. 002; r= 0. 669, P=0. 000) ;the mean FA value reduction degree in visuality lesions and GCS score had low or weak correlation with consciousness dis order time and recovery degree in half a year after injury(r=0. 285,P=0. 103;r=0. 487,P=0. 003;r= -0. 241,P=0. 169;r=-0. 229,P=0. 192). The correlation between mean FA reduction degree in cerebral midline site and mean FA value reduction degree in visuality lesions with the recovery degree in a half years after injury was higher than that in GCS score. Conclusion DTI is a sensitive sequence for diagnosing DAI and has much more value for judging the injury degree and prognosis than the GCS score generally adopted by clinic.

ABSTRACT

To study the anticoagulant effect of Xiang-Qi-Tang (XQT),the mice model of endotoxemia was established to detect the expression of coagulation factors and their regulatory proteins in serum and aorta.The results showed that XQT could decrease the expression of TF and increase the expression of tPA in the aorta of mice with endotoxemia,and also decrease the expression of sEPCR in the serum.We further found that XQT caused the decrease of sEPCR through the regulation of PKC δ and ADAM17 to contribute the anticoagulation in mice.This study may provide a new strategy for treating endotoxin-induced disease and provide evidences for further researching the pharmacological action of XQT.

ABSTRACT

Purpose To explore the association of NET-1 expression with the angiogenesis of cervical squamous cell carcinoma and the related molecular mechanism.Methods Immunohistochemistry MaxVision was used to detect the expression of NET-1,NF-κB p65 and VEGF in 80 cases of cervical squamous cancer tissue and 10 cases of chronic cervicitis tissue.The microvascular density (MVD) was assessed by labeling endothelia with CD34-antibody and counted according to Weinner's standard.The eukaryotic expression plasmid pCMV6-NET-1 was transfected into cervical squamous cancer cells by cationic liposome in order to obtain over expression of NET-1 gene.In order to inhibit the activation of NF-kappa B,cervical squamous carcinoma cells were treated with NF-kappa B specific inhibitor PDTC.The protein expression in SiHa cells was assessed by Western blotting.Results The expression level of NET-1 in the cervical squamous carcinoma tissue was significantly higher than that in the tissue of control group.NET-1 expression was positively correlated to the MVD,NF-κB p65 and VEGF expression,respectively.Transient transfection of NET-1 gene significantly increased the nuclear expression of NF-κB p65 and cytoplasm expression of VEGF in the SiHa cells.However,pretreatment of SiHa cells with NF-inhibitor PDTC significantly inhibited NET-1 induced upregulation of VEGF expression.Conclusion NET-1 promotes the angiogenesis of cervical squamous carcinoma through the activation of the NF-κB signaling which upregulate the expression of VEGF in the cancer cells.
