Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is more aggressive than other breast cancer subtypes. Collagen type IV alpha 2 (COL4A2), a major component of the basement membrane, dynamically influences a wide range of biological processes, including cancer pathogenesis and progression. This study evaluated the effects of COL4A2 siRNA delivered by lentiviral vector to TNBC cells. COL4A2 siRNA lenti-viral vector was constructed and transfected into MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-468 cells. The COL4A2 mRNA levels were quantified by RT-PCR...

Nuclear receptor subfamily 4 group A member 1 (NR4A1), a downstream target of CREB that is a key regulator of epileptogenesis, has been implicated in a variety of biological processes and was previously identified as a seizure-associated molecule. However, the relationship between NR4A1 and epileptogenesis remains unclear. Here, we showed that NR4A1 protein was predominantly expressed in neurons and up-regulated in patients with epilepsy as well as pilocarpine-induced mouse epileptic models. NR4A1 knockdown by lentivirus transfection (lenti-shNR4A1) alleviated seizure severity and prolonged onset latency in mouse models...

Pancreatic cancer represents one of the most lethal human cancers. Investigation of the effective targeting to the tumor cells is essential for both primary tumors and metastases. Tumor specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) have recently been considered to be the attractive vehicles for delivering therapeutic agents toward various tumor diseases. This study was to explore the distribution pattern of CTL carrying the lentiviral vectors with the characteristic of adenoviral E1 gene under the control of the cell activation-dependent CD40 ligand promoter (Lenti/hCD40L/E1AB)...

A technique for analyzing the composition of each voxel, in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) framework, is presented. By combining different acquisitions, a novel methodology, called intra voxel analysis (IVA), for the detection of multiple tissues and the estimation of their spin-spin relaxation times is proposed. The methodology exploits the sparse Bayesian learning (SBL) approach in order to solve a highly underdetermined problem imposing the solution sparsity. IVA, developed for spin echo imaging sequence, can be easily extended to any acquisition scheme...

Lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) is a self-pollinating, diploid, annual, cool-season, food legume crop that is cultivated throughout the world. Ascochyta blight (AB), caused by Ascochyta lentis Vassilievsky, is an economically important and widespread disease of lentil. Development of cultivars with high levels of durable resistance provides an environmentally acceptable and economically feasible method for AB control. A detailed understanding of the genetic basis of AB resistance is hence highly desirable, in order to obtain insight into the number and influence of resistance genes...

We report the measurements of correlations between event-by-event fluctuations of amplitudes of anisotropic flow harmonics in nucleus-nucleus collisions, obtained for the first time using a new analysis method based on multiparticle cumulants in mixed harmonics. This novel method is robust against systematic biases originating from nonflow effects and by construction any dependence on symmetry planes is eliminated. We demonstrate that correlations of flow harmonics exhibit a better sensitivity to medium properties than the individual flow harmonics...

OBJECTIVE: Long-term results of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) endovascular repair are affected by graft design renewals that tend to improve the performance of older generation prostheses but usually reset the follow-up times to zero. The present study investigated the long-term outcomes of endovascular AAA repair (EVAR) using the Zenith graft, still in use without major modification, in a single center experience. METHODS: Between 2000 and 2011, 610 patients underwent elective EVAR using the Zenith endograft (Cook Inc, Bloomington, Ind) and represent the study group...

To investigate the prognostic effect of microRNA single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, 658 female participants from northeast China were enrolled in our prospective cohort study and followed up from 2010 to 2015. C-containing genotypes of miR-149 rs2292832 were associated with better overall survival (OS). The joint effect of miR-149 and miR-196a2 and the joint effect of miR-149 and miR-608 were also observed in our study. To verify the function of miR-149 rs2292832, A549 cell lines were stably transfected with lenti-virus containing miR-149-C vector, miR-149-T vector and empty vector...

Type 2 diabetic mellitus (DM2) is associated with accelerated thrombotic complications and is characterized by high levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1). Recent studies show that human platelets have high levels of miR-30c and synthesize considerable active PAI-1. The underlying mechanism of how PAI-1 expression is upregulated in DM2 is poorly understood. We now report that hyperglycaemia-induced repression of miR-30c increases PAI-1 expression and thrombus formation in DM2. Bioinformatic analysis and identification of miRNA targets were assessed using luciferase assays, quantitative real-time PCR and western blots in vitro and in vivo...

The rupture and erosion of atherosclerotic plaque can induce coronary thrombosis. Prolyl-4-hydroxylase (P4H) plays a central role in the synthesis of all known types of collagens, which are the most abundant constituent of the extracellular matrix in atherosclerotic plaque. The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is thought to be in part caused by shear stress. In this study, we aimed to investigate a relationship between P4Hα1 and shear stress-induced atherosclerotic plaque. Carotid arteries of ApoE-/- mice were exposed to low and oscillatory shear stress conditions by the placement of a shear stress cast for 2 weeks; we divided 60 male ApoE-/- mice into three groups for treatments with saline (mock) (n = 20), empty lentivirus (lenti-EGFP) (n = 20), and lentivirus-P4Hα1 (lenti-P4Hα1) (n = 20)...

Hsp60 is a typical mitochondrial protein in eukaryotes, and is involved in facilitating the correction of misfolded protein back into the correct conformation. Previous, we identified aspirin-induced HSPs in response to heat stress [1]. To investigate whether Hsp60 can protect against death under heat stress, we used lenti-siRNA to knock down the expression of Hsp60. When exposed to heat stress, more apoptosis was observed with increasing exposure to heat stress, while necrosis was not affected. Furthermore, heat stress induced the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm) and a significant increase of reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced in mitochondria as measured by TMRE and MitoSOXTM red...

Appropriateness is one of the critical aspects of medicine. For this reason, the Italian Society of Internal Medicine (SIMI) decided to adhere to the Choosing Wisely Campaign. A bottom-up approach was chosen. All the recommendations published in the US and Canadian Choosing Wisely campaign have been screened, and an e-mail was sent to all the SIMI members for new suggestions. The thirty interventions that were judged as the highest priority by a committee were sent to all the SIMI members for voting. The first procedures selected were then revised, and constituted the five points of the SIMI choosing wisely campaign...

Osteoporosis is a common health problem severely affecting the life quality of many people, especially women. Current treatment options for osteoporosis are limited due to their association with several side-effects and moderate efficacy. Therefore, novel therapies for osteoporosis are needed. In this study, we tested the feasibility of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell (ATMSC) based human AAT (hAAT) gene therapy for the prevention of bone loss in an ovariectomized (OVX) mouse model. Eight-week-old female C57BL6 mice underwent ovariectomy and treated with hAAT (protein therapy), ATMSC (stem cell therapy), ATMSC+hAAT (combination of ATMSC and hAAT therapy), ATMSCs infected with lentiviral vectors expressing hAAT (ATMSC based hAAT gene therapy)...

The blood-brain barrier in the neonatal brain expresses the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT)-1 rather than the glucose transporter (GLUT)-1, due to the special energy supply during the suckling period. The hyaloid vascular system, consisting of the vasa hyaloidea propria and tunica vasculosa lentis, is a temporary vasculature present only during the early development of mammalian eyes and later regresses. Although the ocular vasculature manifests such a unique developmental process, no information is available concerning the expression of endothelial nutrient transporters in the developing eye...

BACKGROUND: Sex differences in presentation and outcomes of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) with increased mortality rates in women are suggested. This study aimed to assess mortality risk after repair of ruptured AAA (rAAA) in women in the endovascular abdominal aortic repair (EVAR) era. METHODS: Patients treated between 2006 and 2015 for rAAA were included in a prospective database. Characteristics at presentation and outcomes were compared between women and men...

Cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) deficiency is a rare inherited disorder in the methionine catabolic pathway, in which the impaired synthesis of cystathionine leads to accumulation of homocysteine. Patients can present to many different specialists and diagnosis is often delayed. Severely affected patients usually present in childhood with ectopia lentis, learning difficulties and skeletal abnormalities. These patients generally require treatment with a low-methionine diet and/or betaine. In contrast, mildly affected patients are likely to present as adults with thromboembolism and to respond to treatment with pyridoxine...

The inflammatory caspases (caspase-1, -4 and -5) are potential therapeutic targets for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases due to their involvement in the immune response upon inflammasome formation. A series of small molecules based on the 4-(piperazin-1-yl)-2,6-di(pyrrolidin-1-yl)pyrimidine scaffold were synthesized with varying substituents on the piperazine ring. Several compounds were pan-selective inhibitors of the inflammatory caspases, caspase-1, -4 and -5, with the ethylbenzene derivative CK-1-41 displaying low nanomolar Ki values across this family of caspases...

OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to investigate the relationship between keloid and telomerase as well as clarifying the influence of Wnt/β-catenin signaling on keloid cell proliferation. METHODS: Tissues from 18 keloid patients were collected for further study. Keloid progenitor cells (KPC) and skin progenitor cells (SKP) were both included in this study. Lenti-virus transfection was used to divide cells into different groups in which cells were treated with different substances: negative control (NC) group, wnt10a siRNA group, β-catenin siRNA group and TERT siRNA group...

OBJECTIVE: This study was to investigate whether resistin induces the expression of CCL4 during Intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) and whether toll-like receptor-4 (TLR-4) and the NF-κB signaling pathway are involved in this process. METHODS: The expression pattern of resistin and CCL4 in different degenerated human nucleus pulposus (NP) tissues were measured by quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qPCR); Effect of resistin on the migration of macrophages was measured by cell migration assay...
