ABIN-1 (encoded by the gene Tnip1) is a ubiquitin-binding protein that can interact with ubiquitin-editing enzyme A20 (encoded by the gene TNFAIP3) to restrain the activation of necroptosis and NF-κB activation. Genetic variants in the genes Tnip1 and TNFAIP3 are both strongly associated with susceptibility to autoimmune chronic inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis vulgaris and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in humans. Here we investigated the mechanism by which ABIN-1 regulated innate immune responses...

Accumulating evidence has showed that anti-CASPR2 autoantibodies occur in a long list of neurological immune disorders including limbic encephalitis (LE). Belonging to the well-known neurexin superfamily, CASPR2 has been suggested to be a central node in the molecular networks controlling neurodevelopment. Distinct from other subfamilies in the neurexin superfamily, the CASPR subfamily features a unique discoidin (Disc) domain. As revealed by our and others' recent studies, CASPR2 Disc domain bears a major epitope for autoantibodies...

BACKGROUND: PD-L1 is an immune inhibitory receptor ligand that leads to T cell dysfunction and apoptosis by binding to its receptor PD-1, which works in braking inflammatory response and conspiring tumor immune evasion. However, in gliomas, the cause of PD-L1 expression in the tumor microenvironment is not yet clear. Besides, auxiliary biomarkers are urgently needed for screening possible responsive glioma patients for anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapies. METHODS: The distribution of tumor-infiltrating T cells and PD-L1 expression was analyzed via immunofluorescence in orthotopic murine glioma model...

Intrinsic resistance to anti-HER2 therapy in breast cancer remains an obstacle in the clinic, limiting its efficacy. However, the biological basis for intrinsic resistance is poorly understood. Here we performed a CRISPR/Cas9-mediated loss-of-function genetic profiling and identified TALDO1, which encodes the rate-limiting transaldolase (TA) enzyme in the non-oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, as essential for cellular survival following pharmacological HER2 blockade. Suppression of TA increases cell susceptibility to HER2 inhibition in two intrinsically resistant breast cancer cell lines with HER2 amplification...

High-charge and -energy (HZE) particles comprise space radiation and they pose a challenge to astronauts on deep space missions. While exposure to most HZE particles decreases neurogenesis in the hippocampus-a brain structure important in memory-prior work suggests that 12 C does not. However, much about 12 C's influence on neurogenesis remains unknown, including the time course of its impact on neurogenesis. To address this knowledge gap, male mice (9⁻11 weeks of age) were exposed to whole-body 12 C irradiation 100 cGy (IRR; 1000 MeV/n; 8 kEV/µm) or Sham treatment...

Impaired immunity in patients with late-stage cancer is not limited to antitumor responses, as demonstrated by poor vaccination protection and high susceptibility to infection1-3 . This has been largely attributed to chemotherapy-induced impairment of innate immunity, such as neutropenia2 , whereas systemic effects of tumors on hematopoiesis and adoptive immunity remain incompletely understood. Here we observed anemia associated with severe deficiency of CD8+ T cell responses against pathogens in treatment-naive mice bearing large tumors...

Doped graphite-like coating (GLC) has aroused great interests as one of the promising protective material in marine application. However, there is a lack of systematic research on the tribocorrosion and antifouling performance of doped GLC coatings in harsh marine environments. Herein, a multi-functional (Cr, Cu)-GLC coating with combined antifouling and tribocorrosion properties was prepared via a magnetron sputtering method. The experimental results indicate that the resultant coatings changed from a dense structure to a loose columnar structure with the increment of Cr and Cu doping amount...

Chronic exposure to fluoride continues to be a public health problem worldwide, affecting thousands of people. Fluoride can cause abnormal proliferation and activation of osteoblast and osteoclast, leading to skeletal fluorosis that can cause pain and harm to joints and bones and even lead to permanent disability. Nevertheless, there is no recognized mechanism to explain the bone lesions of fluorosis. In this work, we performed a population study and in vitro experiments to investigate the pathogenic mechanism of skeletal fluorosis in relation to methylation of the promoter of p16...

In this study, we investigated the feasibility of using enterovirus HY12 as a vector to express an exogenous hemagglutinin (HA)-epitope tag onto the HY12-encoded VP1 protein via a reverse genetic system. Characteristics of recombinant (r) HY12-VP1-HA marker virus were determined by immunoperoxidase monolayer assay, western blot, electron microscopy, and serum-neutralisation assay. Sequence analysis demonstrated that the marker virus stably maintained the HA-epitope-tag in MDBK cells, with no changes in viral morphological features observed relative to those of the parental rHY12 virus...

Increasing attention has been paid to the application of precision medicine in heart failure (HF), and biomarker-based personalized medical care has shown great progress in HF management. Additionally, multicomponent drugs represented by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) are demonstrating safety and efficacy in the management of HF. However, the potential mechanism is unclear, and the ambiguous clinical locations of TCM remain a hindrance to its extensive application. To meet this requirement, a precise investigation on the efficacy of multicomponent drugs against HF using the signature biomarkers-oriented approach was developed and applied to a conventional drug for cardiac disease, YiXinShu (YXS)...

S100A4 plays important roles in tumor development and metastasis, but its role in regulating inflammation and colitis-associated tumorigenesis has not been well characterized. Here, we report that S100A4 expression was increased in azoxymethane (AOM) and dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) induced colorectal cancer (CRC) in mice. After AOM/DSS treatment, both S100A4-TK mice with the selective depletion of S100A4-expressing cells and S100A4-deficient (S100A4-/- ) mice developed fewer and smaller tumors than wild-type (WT) control littermates...

As classical therapy method of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is not effective enough, HCC immunotherapy is a hot spot for research in recent years. Although in recent years, immune checkpoint inhibitors are focused in cancer therapy, vaccines and adoptive cell therapy (ACT), as traditional immunotherapy methods for HCC are still promising. We found that δ-Catenin might be a new tumor-associated antigen for HCC, for it could be upregulated as a stress associated protein under hypoxia and irradiation treatment...

Face recognition (FR) with single sample per person (SSPP) is a challenge in computer vision. Since there is only one sample to be trained, it makes facial variation such as pose, illumination, and disguise difficult to be predicted. To overcome this problem, this paper proposes a scheme combined traditional and deep learning (TDL) method to process the task. First, it proposes an expanding sample method based on traditional approach. Compared with other expanding sample methods, the method can be used easily and conveniently...
