Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide, especially in developing countries. High risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infection causes cervical cancer and precancerous cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). Integration of the HR-HPV genome into the host chromatin is an important step in cervical carcinogenesis. The detection of integrated papillomavirus sequences-PCR (DIPS-PCR) allowed us to explore HPV integration in the human genome and to determine the pattern of this integration...

This study aimed to apply the dead space fraction [ratio of dead space to tidal volume (VD/VT)] to titrate the optimal positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) in a swine model of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Twelve swine models of ARDS were constructed. A lung recruitment maneuver was then conducted and the PEEP was set at 20 cm H2O. The PEEP was reduced by 2 cm H2O every 10 min until 0 cm H2O was reached, and VD/VT was measured after each decrement step. VD/VT was measured using single-breath analysis of CO2, and calculated from arterial CO2 partial pressure (PaCO2) and mixed expired CO2 (PeCO2) using the following formula: VD/VT = (PaCO2 - PeCO2)/PaCO2...

Previous studies on a limited number of birds suggested that the IgD-encoding gene was absent in birds. However, one of our recent studies showed that the gene was definitely expressed in the ostrich and emu. Interestingly, we also identified subclass diversification of IgM and IgY in these two birds. To better understand immunoglobulin genes in birds, in this study, we analyzed the immunoglobulin heavy chain genes in the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) and Gentoo penguin (Pygoscelis papua), belonging respectively to the order Passeriformes, the most successful bird order in terms of species diversity and numbers, and Sphenisciformes, a relatively primitive avian order...

Salivary adenoid cystic carcinoma (SACC) is a relatively uncommon epithelial-like malignancy that can occur in the head and neck region. Despite its slow growth, this aggressive salivary gland tumor frequently recurs and metastasizes to distant organs since lacking effective chemotherapy treatment. MicroRNAs are key regulators in tumor metastasis and progression, but their roles during SACC progression have not been illustrated. In current study, we demonstrate that miR-125a-5p is down-regulated in SACC and closely related to the metastasis and progression in human SACC specimens...

ADAMTS2 (A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase With Thrombospondin Motifs 2) is recognized as a metalloproteinase that promotes the cleavage of amino propeptides of types I, II, III, and V procollagens. However, the role of ADAMTS2 in the heart has not yet been defined. Herein, we observed the upregulated expression of ADAMTS2 in failing human hearts and hypertrophic murine hearts. Mice lacking ADAMTS2 display exacerbated cardiac hypertrophy on pressure overload-induced hypertrophic response, whereas mice with cardiac-specific overexpression of ADAMTS2 display alleviation of this detrimental phenotype...

Vascularization is crucial for bone regeneration after the transplantation of tissue-engineered bone grafts in the clinical setting. Growing evidence suggests that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) are potently pro-angiogenic both in vitro and in vivo. In the current study, we fabricated a novel EV-functionalized scaffold with enhanced pro-angiogenic and pro-bone regeneration activities by coating decalcified bone matrix (DBM) with MSC-derived EVs. EVs were harvested from rat bone marrow-derived MSCs and the pro-angiogenic potential of EVs was investigated in vitro...

Lithium-oxygen (Li-O2) batteries have the highest theoretical energy density of all the Li-based energy storage systems, but many challenges prevent them from practical use. A major obstacle is the sluggish performance of the air cathode, where both oxygen reduction (discharge) and oxygen evolution (charge) reactions occur. Recently, there have been significant advances in the development of graphene-based air cathode materials with a large surface area and catalytically active for both oxygen reduction and evolution reactions, especially with additional catalysts or dopants...

The loss of alveolar structure and airspace enlargement are major pathological changes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Type II alveolar epithelial cells (AECII) are involved in maintaining lung tissue repair and alveolar homeostasis. Long non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in multi‑regulating gene transcription, affecting processes including embryonic development, cell differentiation and cellular senescence. The primary aim of the present study was to explore the mechanisms of AECII senescence regulated by lncRNA‑mediated sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) and forkhead box O 3a (FoxO3a) signaling pathways in patients with COPD...
