Background: In 2018, the Chinese government demanded nationwide implementation of medical insurance payment methods based on Single-Disease Payment (SDP), but during the operation process the medical insurance system did not fully consider the extra economic burden caused by healthcare-associated infection (HAI). HAIs can prolong the length of stay and increase the hospitalization costs, but only a few studies have been conducted in Sichuan province, China. We evaluated the hospitalization costs and length of stay due to HAI in Sichuan province based on the prevalence survey, and provided data reference for China's medical insurance reform...

We demonstrate a core-satellite plasmonic nanoprobe assembled via metal ion-dependent DNA-cleaving DNAzyme linker for imaging intercellular metal ion based on plasmon coupling effect at a single particle level. As metal ions are present in the system, the DNAzyme linker will be cleaved, and thus, disassembly of the core-satellite nanoprobes occurs, which results in distinct blue shift of the scattering spectra of Au core-satellite probes and naked color change of the scattering light. This change in scattering spectra has been supported by theoretical simulations...

N6-methyladenosine (m6 A) is the most prevalent and reversible internal modification of mammalian messenger and noncoding RNAs mediated by specific m6 A writer, reader, and eraser proteins. As an m6 A writer, the methyltransferase-like 3-methyltransferase-like 14 (METTL14)-Wilms tumor 1-associated protein complex dynamically regulates m6 A modification and plays important roles in diverse biologic processes. However, our knowledge about the complete functions of this RNA methyltransferase complex, the contributions of each component to the methylation, and their effects on different biologic pathways are still limited...

The red yeast Rhodosporidium toruloide is a versatile host for production of lipids and carotenoids. Genetic tools are underdeveloped for red yeasts due to their unique genetics and physiology. Currently expression of a heterogonous gene in red yeasts is largely based on integration of the designed cassette by Agrobacterium mediated transformation, yet this method is somewhat restricted when multiple genes are required to be expressed due to the lack of functional genetic elements. Here we demonstrate that virus 2A sequence is effective to mediate co-expression of multiple enzymes in R...

The recent rapid evolution of PRRSVs has resulted in certain biological characteristic changes, such as the fact that an increasing number of field PRRSVs can be isolated from PAMs but not from Marc-145 cells. In this study, we first isolated Marc-145-unadaptive field PRRSV strains from PAMs; sequence analysis showed that these PRRSVs belong to the HP-PRRSV (lineage 8) branch or NADC30-Like (lineage 1) branch. We further found major variations in ORF2-4 regions. To explore the viral adaptation mechanisms in detail, we constructed a full-length cDNA clone of MY-376, a Marc-145-unadaptive PRRSV...

The RASSF1A, a microtubule associated protein, is a well-known tumor suppressor silenced in various cancer via promoter hypermethylation. RASSF1A is implicated in the regulation of cellular proliferation and apoptosis. However, its role in melanoma A375 cells invasion and metastasis remain unclear. Here, we report an unusual dual function role of ectopic RASSF1A in A375 cells. RASSF1A suppressed A375 cells proliferation but enhanced cells migration, invasiveness and metastatic potential in vivo. We demonstrated RASSF1A simultaneously up-regulated p21 and vimentin expression in A375 cells...
