Phage engineering: how advances in molecular biology and synthetic biology are being utilized to enhance the therapeutic potential of bacteriophages

(OPP1139488). COMPLIANCE WITH ETHICS GUIDELINES The authors Russell Brown, Andreas Lengeling and Baojun Wang declare that they have no conflict of interests. This article does not contain any studies with

Amplification of small molecule-inducible gene expression via tuning of intracellular receptor densities

Ligand-responsive transcription factors in prokaryotes found simple small molecule-inducible gene expression systems. These have been extensively used for regulated protein production and associated biosynthesis of fine chemicals. However, the promoter and protein engineering approaches traditionally used often pose significant restrictions to predictably and rapidly tune the...

Bilateral Synchronous Sporadic Renal Cell Carcinoma: Retroperitoneoscopic Strategies and Intermediate Outcomes of 60 Patients

Objective To evaluate the presentation, management, pathology, and functional and oncological outcomes of patients undergoing retroperitoneoscopic treatment of bilateral synchronous sporadic RCC at our institution. Methods We retrospectively evaluated the records of 60 patients with bilateral synchronous sporadic RCC who underwent retroperitoneoscopic treatment at the General...

Engineering modular and tunable genetic amplifiers for scaling transcriptional signals in cascaded gene networks

Synthetic biology aims to control and reprogram signal processing pathways within living cells so as to realize repurposed, beneficial applications. Here we report the design and construction of a set of modular and gain-tunable genetic amplifiers in Escherichia coli capable of amplifying a transcriptional signal with wide tunable-gain control in cascaded gene networks. The...

Prognostic Value of Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio in Localized and Advanced Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Objective and Background Increasing evidence suggests that inflammation plays an essential role in cancer development and progression. The inflammation marker neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is correlated with prognosis across a wide variety of tumor types, but its prognostic value in prostate cancer (PCa) remains controversial. In the present meta-analysis, the prognostic...

Association of polymorphisms in AGTR1 and AGTR2 genes with primary aldosteronism in the Chinese Han population

Hypothesis: Polymorphisms in angiotensin II type-1/2 receptor genes (AGTR1/AGTR2) may be involved in the pathogenesis of primary aldosteronism. The present study aims to reveal some loci susceptible to the disease on the genes in a group of Chinese Han nationality.

Attenuation of Krüppel-Like Factor 4 Facilitates Carcinogenesis by Inducing G1/S Phase Arrest in Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) is a transcription factor with diverse functions in various cancer types; however, the function of KLF4 in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) carcinogenesis remains unknown. In this study, we initially examined KLF4 expression by using a cohort of surgically removed ccRCC specimens and cell lines. Results indicated that the transcription and...

Overexpression of E2F1 Promotes Tumor Malignancy And Correlates with TNM Stages in Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

BackgroundTranscription factor E2F1 exerts effects on many types of cancers. As an upstream regulator of a host of genes, E2F1 can trigger diverse aberrant transcription processes that may dominate malignancy. Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common subtype in renal cell carcinoma which displays high malignancy and has a shortage of biomarkers in clinics. Our...

High-Level Expression of Notch1 Increased the Risk of Metastasis in T1 Stage Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Background Although metastasis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is basically observed in late stage tumors, T1 stage metastasis of ccRCC can also be found with no definite molecular cause resulting inappropriate selection of surgery method and poor prognosis. Notch signaling is a conserved, widely expressed signal pathway that mediates various cellular processes in...
