Radiation therapy is one of the most important methods for the treatment of malignant tumors. However, in radiotherapy for thoracic tumors such as breast cancer, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and mediastinal lymphoma, the heart, located in the mediastinum, is inevitably affected by the irradiation, leading to pericardial disease, myocardial fibrosis, coronary artery disease, valvular lesions, and cardiac conduction system injury, which are considered radiation-induced heart diseases. Delayed cardiac injury especially myocardial fibrosis is more prominent, and its incidence is as high as 20–80%...

Cardiac arrhythmias associated with intracellular calcium inhomeostasis are refractory to antiarrhythmic therapy. We hypothesized that late sodium current (I Na) contributed to the calcium-related arrhythmias. Monophasic action potential duration at 90% completion of repolarization (MAPD90) was significantly increased and ventricular arrhythmias were observed in hearts with increased intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)]i) by using Bay K 8644, and the increase became greater in hearts treated with a combination of ATX-II and Bay K 8644 compared to Bay K 8644 alone...

Panicle traits are among the most important agronomic characters which directly relate to yield in rice. Grain number (GN), panicle length (PL), primary branch number (PBN), and secondary branch number (SBN) are the major components of rice panicle structure, and are all controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTLs). In our research, four advanced backcross overlapping populations (BIL152, BIL196a, BIL196b, and BIL196b-156) carrying introgressed segments from chromosome 6 were derived from an indica/japonica cross that used the super-hybrid rice restorer line HR1128 and the international sequenced japonica cultivar 'Nipponbare' as the donor and recurrent parents, respectively...

Pig is an important food source and an excellent system to model human diseases. Careful characterization of the swine skeletal muscle stem cells (satellite cells) will shed lights on generation of swine skeletal muscle disease model and efficient production of porcine meat for the food industry. Paired box protein 7 (Pax7) is a highly conserved transcription factor shared by satellite cells from various species. However, the sequence of Pax7 has not been characterized in pig. The lack of method to isolate highly purified satellite cells hinders the thorough characterization of the swine satellite cells...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Segmentation of the femur from the hip joint in computed tomography (CT) is an important preliminary step in hip surgery planning and simulation. However, this is a time-consuming and challenging task due to the weak boundary, the varying topology of the hip joint, and the extremely narrow or blurred space between the femoral head and the acetabulum. To address these problems, this study proposed a semi-automatic segmentation framework based on harmonic fields for accurate segmentation...

Cognitive deficits, characterized by progressive problems with hippocampus-dependent learning, memory and spatial processing, are the most serious complication of cranial irradiation. However, the underlying mechanisms remain obscure. The p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) is involved in a diverse arrays of cellular responses, including neurite outgrowth, neurogenesis, and negative regulation of spine density, which are associated with various neurological disorders. In this study, male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats received 10 Gy cranial irradiation...

BACKGROUND: Industrialization and demographic transition generate nonstationary dynamics in human populations that can affect the transmission and persistence of infectious diseases. Decades of increasing vaccination and development have led to dramatic declines in the global burden of measles, but the virus remains persistent in much of the world. Here we show that a combination of demographic transition, as a result of declining birth rates, and reduced measles prevalence, due to improved vaccination, has shifted the age distribution of susceptibility to measles throughout China...

Podocyte apoptosis coincides with albuminuria onset and precedes podocytopenia in diabetic nephropathy. However, there is a lack of effective therapeutic drugs to protect podocytes from apoptosis. Here, we demonstrated that resveratrol relieved a series of indicators of diabetic nephropathy and attenuated apoptosis of podocytes in db/db diabetic model mice. In addition, resveratrol induced autophagy in both db/db mice and human podocytes. Furthermore, inhibition of autophagy by 3-methyladenine (3-MA) and autophagy gene 5 (Atg5) short hairpin RNA (shRNA) reversed the protective effects of resveratrol on podocytes...

We report the first direct measurement of decays of the Λ_{c}^{+} baryon involving the neutron. The analysis is performed using 567  pb^{-1} of e^{+}e^{-} collision data collected at sqrt[s]=4.599  GeV with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider. We observe the decay Λ_{c}^{+}→nK_{S}^{0}π^{+} and measure the absolute branching fraction to be B(Λ_{c}^{+}→nK_{S}^{0}π^{+})=[1.82±0.23(stat)±0.11(syst)]%. A comparison to B[Λ_{c}^{+}→p(K[over ¯]π)^{0}] provides an important test of isospin symmetry and final state interactions...

The serine/threonine protein kinase liver kinase B1 (LKB1) is a tumour suppressor and plays important roles in development and metabolism. It phosphorylates AMPK and AMPK-related kinases to regulate multiple physiological processes. Mutations in LKB1 often occur in multiple cancers. LKB1 can be suppressed by 14-3-3 proteins in a phosphorylation-dependent manner. Previously, the structure of a 14-3-3ζ-LKB1 fusion protein has been reported, revealing a phosphorylation-independent binding mode of LKB1 to 14-3-3 proteins...

BACKGROUND: DNA methylation and demethylation play a critical role in the regulation of the molecular pathogenesis of gliomas. TET1 catalyzes the sequential oxidation of 5-methylcytosine to 5-hydroxymethyl-cytosine, leading to eventual DNA demethylation. It has reported that TET1 is a tumor suppressor in several cancers. However, whether TET1 play a role in glioma development is largely unclear. METHODS: Different glioma specimens and corresponding normal contols were collected to analysis the expression of TET1...

The application domains of classic enzyme-linked ligand binding assay (ELBA) is relatively narrow due to the high cost and hardly available binding receptor. In here, we described for the first time the possibility of developing a new ELBA based on silica nanoparticles (nano-SiO2) to assess the ibuprofen in human urine. Nano-SiO2 with a large surface area was introduced as stationary phase to improve the analytical performance. In the experiment, a competitively binding procedure with human serum albumin (HSA) was performed between the ibuprofen presented in sample and horseradish peroxidase labeled ibuprofen (HRP-ibuprofen) subsequently added...

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have an extensive application in regenerative medicine, pharmaceutical discovery, and basic research. With the recent derivation of rat iPSCs, it is now feasible to apply genetic manipulation in this species. But such tools do not yet exist for many rat strains, especially for disease model rat. The Sprague Dawley (SD) rat is an inbred disease model for hypertension, nephropathy, pulmonary hypertension, depression, and alcohol consumption. In this study, the SD rat iPSCs were generated using lentiviral method...

Motivation: Although coexpression analysis via pair-wise expression correlation is popularly used to elucidate gene-gene interactions at the whole-genome scale, many complicated multi-gene regulations require more advanced detection methods. Liquid association is a powerful tool to detect the dynamic correlation of two gene variables depending on the expression level of a third variable (LA scouting gene). Liquid association detection from single transcriptomic study, however, is often unstable and not generalizable due to cohort bias, biological variation, and limited sample size...

Tight junctions (TJs) in salivary epithelium play an important role in regulating saliva secretion. Autologous transplantation of submandibular glands (SMGs) is an effective method to treat severe dry eye syndrome. However, epiphora occurs in some patients 6 months after transplantation. We previously found that the acinar TJs are enlarged in rabbit SMGs after long-term transplantation, but the exact TJ components involved in the epiphora are still unknown. Here, we found that the mRNA and protein expression of ZO-1 and occludin were increased in the transplanted SMGs obtained from epiphora patients, while other TJs were unchanged...
