TET enzymes convert 5-methylcytosine to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine and higher oxidized derivatives. TETs stably associate with and are post-translationally modified by the nutrient-sensing enzyme OGT, suggesting a connection between metabolism and the epigenome. Here, we show for the first time that modification by OGT enhances TET1 activity in vitro. We identify a TET1 domain that is necessary and sufficient for binding to OGT and report a point mutation that disrupts the TET1-OGT interaction. We show that this interaction is necessary for TET1 to rescue hematopoetic stem cell production in tet mutant zebrafish embryos, suggesting that OGT promotes TET1's function during development...

We report a copper catalyzed trifunctionalization of alkynes that provides rapid entry to oxindoles bearing a geminal bis(boronates) side chain, highlighted by the simultaneous formation of one C-C bond and two C-B bonds. This new reaction features simple reaction conditions (ligand free catalysis), a general substrate scope, as well as excellent chemoselectivity. Mechanistic study revealed a reaction sequence in the order of borylation/intramolecular cross coupling/hydroboration, which has been rarely documented...

N6 -methyladenosine (m6 A) on mRNAs is critical for various biological processes, yet whether m6 A regulates drug resistance remains unknown. Here we show that developing resistant phenotypes during tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy depends on m6 A reduction resulting from FTO overexpression in leukemia cells. This deregulated FTO-m6 A axis pre-exists in naïve cell populations that are genetically homogeneous and is inducible/reversible in response to TKI treatment. Cells with mRNA m6 A hypomethylation and FTO upregulation demonstrate more TKI tolerance and higher growth rates in mice...

High-resolution detection of genome-wide 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) sites of small-scale samples remains challenging. Here, we present hmC-CATCH, a bisulfite-free, base-resolution method for the genome-wide detection of 5hmC. hmC-CATCH is based on selective 5hmC oxidation, chemical labeling and subsequent C-to-T transition during PCR. Requiring only nanoscale input genomic DNA samples, hmC-CATCH enabled us to detect genome-wide hydroxymethylome of human embryonic stem cells in a cost-effective manner. Further application of hmC-CATCH to cell-free DNA (cfDNA) of healthy donors and cancer patients revealed base-resolution hydroxymethylome in the human cfDNA for the first time...

The regenerative process of injured muscle is dependent on the fusion and differentiation of myoblast cells derived from muscle stem cells. Hsp70 is important for maintaining skeletal muscle homeostasis and regeneration but the precise cellular mechanism remains elusive. Here we found that Hsp70 was upregulated during myoblast differentiation. Depletion or inhibition of Hsp70/Hsc70 impaired myoblast differentiation. Importantly, overexpression of p38MAPKα, but not AKT1, rescued the impairment of myogenic differentiation in Hsp70- or Hsc70-depleted myoblasts...

Diets containing partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) expose human body to trans fatty acids thus endangering cardiovascular health. Pickering HIPE is a promising alternative of PHOs. This work attempted to construct stable Pickering-HIPEs by engineering interface architecture through manipulating the interfacial, self-assembly, and packing behavior of zein particles using the interaction between protein and pectin. Partially wettable zein/pectin hybrid particles (ZPHPs) with three-phase contact angles ranging from 84° to 87° were developed successfully...

Inhibition of osteoclasts formation and bone resorption by estrogen is very important in the etiology of postmenopausal osteoporosis. The mechanisms of this process are still not fully understood. Recent studies implicated an important role of microRNAs in estrogen-mediated responses in various cellular processes, including cell differentiation and proliferation. Thus, we hypothesized that these regulatory molecules might be implicated in the process of estrogen-decreased osteoclasts formation and bone resorption...

OBJECTIVE: Among clinical and morphological criteria, hemodynamics is the main predictor of aneurysm growth and rupture. This study aimed to identify which hemodynamic parameter in the parent artery could independently predict the rupture of anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysms by using multivariate logistic regression and two-piecewise linear regression models. An additional objective was to look for a more simplified and convenient alternative to the widely used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques to detect wall shear stress (WSS) as a screening tool for predicting the risk of aneurysm rupture during the follow-up of patients who did not undergo embolization or surgery...

A Love wave-based sensing chip incorporating a supramolecular cryptophane A (CrypA) thin film was proposed for methane gas sensing in this work. The waveguide effect in the structure of SiO₂/36° YX LiTaO₃ will confine the acoustic wave energy in SiO₂ thin-film, which contributes well to improvement of the mass loading sensitivity. The CrypA synthesized from vanillyl alcohol by a double trimerisation method was dropped onto the wave propagation path of the sensing device, and the adsorption to methane gas molecules by supramolecular interactions in CrypA modulates the acoustic wave propagation, and the corresponding frequency shifts were connected as the sensing signal...

RNA modifications have recently emerged as critical posttranscriptional regulators of gene expression programs. They affect diverse eukaryotic biological processes, and the correct deposition of many of these modifications is required for normal development. Messenger RNA (mRNA) modifications regulate various aspects of mRNA metabolism. For example, N 6 -methyladenosine (m6 A) affects the translation and stability of the modified transcripts, thus providing a mechanism to coordinate the regulation of groups of transcripts during cell state maintenance and transition...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stem cells and capable of differentiating into multiple cell types including osteoblastic, chondrogenic and adipogenic lineages. We previously identified BMP9 as one of the most potent BMPs that induce osteoblastic differentiation of MSCs although exact molecular mechanism through which BMP9 regulates osteogenic differentiation remains to be fully understood. Here, we seek to develop a recombinant adenovirus system to optimally silence mouse BMP9 and then characterize the important role of BMP9 in osteogenic differentiation of MSCs...

Glomerular podocytes are highly specialized epithelial cells and play an essential role in establishing the selective permeability of the glomerular filtration barrier of kidney. Maintaining the viability and structural integrity of podocytes is critical to the clinical management of glomerular diseases, which requires a thorough understanding of podocyte cell biology. As mature podocytes lose proliferative capacity, a conditionally SV40 mutant tsA58-immortalized mouse podocyte line (designated as tsPC) was established from the Immortomouse over 20 years ago...

As the most commonly occurring cancer in women worldwide, breast cancer poses a formidable public health challenge on a global scale. Breast cancer consists of a group of biologically and molecularly heterogeneous diseases originated from the breast. While the risk factors associated with this cancer varies with respect to other cancers, genetic predisposition, most notably mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, is an important causative factor for this malignancy. Breast cancers can begin in different areas of the breast, such as the ducts, the lobules, or the tissue in between...
