Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a disease characterized by excessive osteoclastic bone resorption. Some anti-diabetic drugs were demonstrated for anti-osteoclastic bone-loss effects. The present study investigated the skeletal effects of chronic administration of sitagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP IV) inhibitor that is increasingly used for type 2 diabetes treatments, in an estrogen deficiency-induced osteoporosis and elucidated the associated mechanisms. This study indicated that sitagliptin effectively prevented ovariectomy-induced bone loss and reduced osteoclast numbers in vivo...

As the first line of defence, marginal zone (MZ) B cells play principal roles in clearing blood-borne pathogens during infection and are over-primed in autoimmune diseases. However, the basic mechanisms underlying MZ B-cell development are still unclear. We found here that CD19 deficiency blocked the differentiation of marginal zone precursors (MZP) to MZ B cells, whereas CD19 expression in CD19-deficient MZP rescues MZ B-cell generation. Furthermore, CD19 regulates Notch2 cleavage by up-regulating ADAM28 expression in MZP...

BACKGROUND: Intermedin [IMD, adrenomedullin-2 (ADM-2)] attenuates renal fibrosis by inhibition of oxidative stress. However, the precise mechanisms remain unknown. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), an antioxidant agent, is associated with antifibrogenic effects. ADM is known to induce HO-1. Whether IMD has any effect on HO-1 is unclear. Herein, we determined whether the antifibrotic properties of IMD are mediated by induction of HO-1. METHODS: Renal fibrosis was induced by unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) performed on male Wistar rats...

The control principles behind robust cyclic regeneration of hair follicles (HFs) remain unclear. Using multi-scale modeling we show that coupling inhibitors and activators with physical growth of HFs is sufficient to drive periodicity and excitability of hair regeneration. Model simulations and experimental data reveal that mouse skin behaves as a heterogeneous regenerative field, composed of anatomical domains where HFs have distinct cycling dynamics. Interactions between fast-cycling chin and ventral HFs and slow-cycling dorsal HFs produce bilaterally symmetric patterns...

Although nanoparticle-based photothermal therapy (PTT) has been intensively investigated recently, its comparative efficiency with any clinical cancer treatments has been rarely explored. Herein for the first time we report a systematic comparative study of clinical iodine-125 ((125) I) interstitial brachytherapy (IBT-125-I) and interventional PTT (IPTT) in an orthotopic xenograft model of human pancreatic cancer. IPTT, based on the nanoparticles composing of anti-urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) antibody, polyethylene glycol (PEG), and indocyanine green (ICG) modified gold nanoshells (hereinafter uIGNs), is directly applied to local pancreatic tumor deep in the abdomen...

An efficient and stable catalyst with fragment-exfoliating structure was prepared by directly ozone treatment of bulk graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4). The photocatalytic performances of the as-prepared catalysts were evaluated by degradation of methylene blue (MB) and photocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction under visible light irradiation. Compared with untreated g-C3N4, the ozone-treated g-C3N4 (OCN) exhibited almost 5 times higher photodegradation activity and 2 times H2 evolution rate. The enhanced photocatalysis capability could be assigned to a narrowed band gap (2...

In this study, we explored Bacillus subtilis biofilm growth under various conditions such as the use of substrates with different stiffnesses and nutrient levels using a well-developed optical imaging technique to spatially and temporally track biofilm growth. We also developed a quantitative method to characterize B. subtilis biofilm morphologies under various growth conditions. To determine biofilm rim irregularities, we used the dimensionless P2A ratio, defined as P(2)/4πA, where P is the perimeter and A is the area of the biofilm...

Antibody-based drugs have attracted much attention for their targeting ability, high efficacy and low toxicity. But it is difficult for those intrabodies, a kind of antibodies whose targets are intracellular biomarkers, to become effective drugs due to the lack of intracellular delivery strategy and their short circulation time in blood. Human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT), an important biomarker for tumor, is expressed only in cytoplasm instead of on cell membrane. In this study, the Anti-hTERT blocking monoclonal antibody (mAb), as the model intrabody, was used to prepare nanoparticles (NPs), followed by the encapsulation of erythrocyte membrane (EM), to obtain the EM-coated Anti-hTERT mAb NPs delivery system...

Gallbladder cancer (GBC), highly aggressive form of cancer with an extremely poor prognosis, is the most common malignancy of the biliary tract. In this study, we investigated the effects of dioscin (DSN) on human GBC and the potential mechanisms underlying these effects. The results showed that DSN significantly inhibited GBC cell proliferation and migration. Moreover, DSN induced GBC cell apoptosis via mitochondrial dependent apoptotic signalling. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and glutathione (GSH) levels were measured, and ROS scavengers completely inhibited DSN-induced apoptosis and migration, indicating that ROS play an essential role in GBC progression...

Apert syndrome is one of the most severe craniosynostoses, resulting from gain-of-function mutations in fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2). Previous studies have shown that gain-of-function mutations of FGFR2 (S252W or P253R) cause skull malformation of human Apert syndrome by affecting both chondrogenesis and osteogenesis, underscoring the key role of FGFR2 in bone development. However, the effects of FGFR2 on bone formation at the adult stage have not been fully investigated. To investigate the role of FGFR2 in bone formation, we generated mice with tamoxifen-inducible expression of mutant FGFR2 (P253R) at the adult stage...

Over-activation of beta-catenin/TCF signaling has been frequently observed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Better understanding the molecular mechanism for the aberrant activation of beta-catenin/TCF signaling would provide novel insights into the treatment of this malignancy. In this study, we have shown that the expression of PKMYT1 was up-regulated in HCC. PKMYT1 positively regulated the growth, migration, colony formation, metastasis and epithelia mesenchymal transition (EMT) of HCC cells. Mechanically, PKMTY1 activated the beta-catenin/TCF signaling by binding and inactivating GSK3beta...

A novel aldo-keto reductase Tm1743 characterized from Thermotoga maritima was explored as an effective biocatalyst in chiral alcohol production. Natural Tm1743 catalyzes asymmetric reduction of ethyl 2-oxo-4-phenylbutyrate (EOPB) at high efficiency, but the production of, ethyl (S)-2-hydroxy-4-phenylbutyrate ((S)-EHPB), which is less desirable, is preferred with an enantiomeric excess (ee) value of 76.5%. Thus, altering the enantioselectivity of Tm1743 to obtain the more valuable product (R)-EHPB for angiotensin drug synthesis is highly desired...

A hypervirulent fowl adenovirus serotype 4 (FAdV-4) has caused hepatitis-hydropericardium syndrome (HHS) with mortalities that range from 30 to 80% in outbreaks across China since 2015. The FAdV-4 strain was characterized as a novel genotype based on the specific genome characteristics. However, our understanding of the dynamic distribution, tissue tropism, and pathogenesis of the novel FAdV-4 is incomplete. In this study, a new, sensitive and FAdV-4-specific real-time PCR was developed and applied to detect the dynamic distribution of the duck origin, novel FAdV-4 strain HLJDAd15 in experimentally infected special-pathogen free (SPF) chickens and ducks...
