Ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5 ) is a complex mixture associated with lung cancer risk. PM2.5 -bound nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (NPAHs) have been demonstrated to possess mutagenicity and carcinogenicity. Previous studies showed that PM2.5 induced DNA damage, whereas there is little knowledge of whether 9-nitroanthracene (9-NA), a typical compound of NPAHs in PM2.5 , causes DNA damage. Also, the regulating mechanisms of PM2.5 and 9-NA in DNA damage and repair are not yet fully established...

Cancer is a complex disease that is driven by genetic alterations. There has been a rapid development of genome-wide techniques during the last decade along with a significant lowering of the cost of gene sequencing, which has generated widely available cancer genomic data. However, the interpretation of genomic data and the prediction of the association of genetic variations with cancer and disease phenotypes still requires significant improvement. Missense mutations, which can render proteins non-functional and provide a selective growth advantage to cancer cells, are frequently detected in cancer...

A fast, sensitive, and convenient dual-emission water detector was robustly fabricated. This detector was prepared with blue fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) and red fluorescent Cu nanoclusters (NCs), and showed two well-resolved and intensity-comparable fluorescence peaks under a single excitation wavelength. Moreover, it showed strong red fluorescence in organic solvent due to the aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) properties of the Cu NCs, but the red fluorescence was gradually quenched with an increasing amount of water, whereas the blue fluorescence remained constant...

Tumor repopulation during therapy is an important cause of treatment failure. Strategies to overcome repopulation are arising in parallel with advances in the comprehension of underlying biological mechanisms. Here, we reveal a new mechanism by which high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) released by dying cells during radiotherapy or chemotherapy could stimulate living tumor cell proliferationInhibition or genetic ablation of HMGB1 suppressed tumor cell proliferation. This effect was due to binding of HMGB1with the member receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE), which activated downstream ERK and p38 signaling pathway and promoted cell proliferation...

Ticagrelor has been reported to decrease cardiovascular mortality compared with clopidogrel. This benefit cannot be fully explained by the more efficient platelet inhibition. Many studies demonstrated that ticagrelor improved endothelial function, leaving the mechanism elusive though. The present study aims to investigate whether ticagrelor protects against endothelial dysfunction induced by angiotensinII (AngII) through alleviating endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. Male Sprague Dawley rats were infused with AngII or vehicle and administrated with ticagrelor or vehicle for 14 days...

In sepsis, the liver plays a crucial role in regulating immune responses and is also a target organ for immune-related injury. Despite the critical function of CD8+ T cells against opportunistic viral infections, the CD8 immune response in the liver during sepsis remains elusive. Here we found that Tim-3 is highly up-regulated in liver CD8+ T cells in a mouse cecal ligation and puncture model and in peripheral blood CD8+ T cells of human patients with sepsis. The expression of Tim-3 in liver CD8+ T cells displayed a bi-phasic pattern and deletion of Tim-3 led to reduction of CD8+ T cell apoptosis...

BACKGROUND: Cold stress can cause serious abiotic damage that limits the growth, development and yield of rice. Cold tolerance during the booting stage of rice is a key factor that can guarantee a high and stable yield under cold stress. The cold tolerance of rice is controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTLs). Based on the complex genetic basis of cold tolerance in rice, additional efforts are needed to detect reliable QTLs and identify candidate genes. In this study, recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross between a cold sensitive variety, Dongnong422, and strongly cold-tolerant variety, Kongyu131, were used to screen for cold-tolerant loci at the booting stage of rice...
