In the field of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM),the definition of "Shen" contains a broad concept and a narrow concept. Broad "Shen" is the dominator and administrator of human vital movement,while narrow "Shen" means spirit, consciousness, thinking and emotions of human. "Shen" originates from innate essence of parents, and survives on acquired essence of water and food as well as the nutrition of its metaplastic Qi-Blood-Body fluid. Qi-Blood,the most precious asset of human body, is a quite important section of one person and the central material basis of "Shen-Zhi"...

BACKGROUND: We previously demonstrated that maternal exposure to di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP) induces dysplasia of the kidney in newborn male offspring and renal fibrosis in adults. But the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Fgf10/Fgfr2 and androgen receptor (AR) are known to be important for renal development. We therefore investigated whether these genes are involved in DBP-induced renal fibrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using Sprague-Dawley rats and rat renal proximal tubular cells (NRK52E), we determined the potential involvement of Fgf10, Fgfr2 and AR in DBP-induced renal fibrosis...

Androstenedione (AED) is a naturally occurring steroid hormone. It is metabolized to potent androgens, which may induce androgenic effects in fish. However, little is known whether and how the androgens interfere with the fish gonadal development and reproduction. This study aimed at demonstrating the effects of long-term AED exposure on reproduction and development in mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis). The growth, development and several morphological endpoints, including the segment number and length of anal fin, histological changes of gonads and liver, were evaluated in mosquitofish during development from fertilized embryo to adulthood (180 days) after exposure of AED at environmentally relevant concentrations...

BACKGROUND: How to develop new cotton varieties possessing high yield traits of Upland cotton and superior fiber quality traits of Sea Island cotton remains a key task for cotton breeders and researchers. While multiple attempts bring in little significant progresses, the development of Chromosome Segment Substitution Lines (CSSLs) from Gossypium barbadense in G. hirsutum background provided ideal materials for aforementioned breeding purposes in upland cotton improvement. Based on the excellent fiber performance and relatively clear chromosome substitution segments information identified by Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, two CSSLs, MBI9915 and MBI9749, together with the recurrent parent CCRI36 were chosen to conduct transcriptome sequencing during the development stages of fiber elongation and Secondary Cell Wall (SCW) synthesis (from 10DPA and 28DPA), aiming at revealing the mechanism of fiber development and the potential contribution of chromosome substitution segments from Sea Island cotton to fiber development of Upland cotton...

Endothelial dysfunction is an early stage of atherosclerosis. We recently have shown that 25-hydroxycholesterol found in atherosclerotic lesions could impair endothelial function and vasodilation by uncoupling and inhibiting endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). 1-Palmitoyl-2-(5-oxovaleroyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POVPC), the oxidation product of oxidized low-density lipoprotein, is another proinflammatory lipid and has also been found in atherosclerotic lesions. However, whether POVPC promotes atherosclerosis like 25-hydroxycholesterol remains unclear...

Wear debris-induced peri-implant osteolysis challenges the longevity of implants. The host response to wear debris causes chronic inflammation, promotes bone resorption, and impairs bone formation. We previously demonstrated that melatonin enhances bone formation and attenuates wear debris-induced bone loss in vivo. However, whether melatonin inhibits chronic inflammation and bone resorption at sites of wear debris-induced osteolysis remains unclear. In this study, we examined the potential inhibitory effects of melatonin on titanium particle-induced inflammatory osteolysis in a murine calvarial model and on RANKL-induced osteoclastic formation in bone marrow-derived macrophages...

BACKGROUND: The majority of patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are discharged early, with only early (within 24h) serum creatinine (SCr) data available without evidence of clinical prognosis. We aimed to systemically evaluate the association between post-procedural early increase in SCr and all-cause mortality following CAG. METHODS: We performed a retrospective sub-study analysis within a prospective observational study including 3091 consecutive patients with baseline and post-procedural early (within 24h) SCr data...

Increasing evidence suggests that POU domain class 2 transcription factor 1 (POU2F1) participates in carcinogenesis and cancer progression via promotion of cell proliferation and metastasis; however, the functional role of POU2F1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is largely unknown. In this study, we determined that POU2F1 was significantly up-regulated in HCC tumor tissue and cell lines. We demonstrated that POU2F1 over-expression promoted HCC cell proliferation, colony formation, migration, and invasion, while silencing of POU2F1 inhibited these malignant phenotypes...

As a byproduct of yeast valine metabolism during fermentation, diacetyl can produce a buttery aroma in wine. However, high diacetyl concentrations generate an aromatic off-flavor and poor quality in wine. 2,3-Butanediol dehydrogenase encoded by BDH1 can catalyze the two reactions of acetoin from diacetyl and 2,3-butanediol from acetoin. BDH2 is a gene adjacent to BDH1, and these genes are regulated reciprocally. In this study, BDH1 and BDH2 were overexpressed in Saccharomyces uvarum to reduce the diacetyl production of wine either individually or in combination...

Bogliubov-de Gennes equations are solved self-consistently to investigate the properties of bound states in chiral p-wave superconductive disks. It shows that either an s-wave or the mixed d- and s-wave state with odd-frequency and spin-triplet symmetry is induced at the vortex core, depending both on the chirality of the pairing states and on the vortex topology. It is also found that the odd-frequency triplet even parity (OTE) bound state can be manipulated with a local non-magnetic potential. Interestingly, with an appropriate potential amplitude, the zero-energy OTE bound state can be stabilized at a distance from the vortex core and from the local potential...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is the most common and life-threatening systemic complication of rhabdomyolysis. Inflammation plays an important role in the development of rhabdomyolysis-induced AKI. This study aimed to investigate the kidney model of AKI caused by rhabdomyolysis to verify the role of macrophage Toll-like receptor 4/nuclear factor-kappa B (TLR4/NF-κB) signaling pathway. METHODS: C57BL/6 mice were injected with a 50% glycerin solution at bilateral back limbs to induce rhabdomyolysis, and CLI-095 or pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) was intraperitoneally injected at 0...
