Impact of aberrant cerebral perfusion on resting-state functional MRI: A preliminary investigation of Moyamoya disease

The impact of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion on resting-state blood oxygen level-dependent signal fluctuations remains unknown. We aimed to determine whether chronic ischemia induces changes in amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (ALFF) and to investigate the correlation between ALFF and perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (PWI) parameters in patients with moyamoya ...

p53 signaling modulation of cell cycle arrest and viral replication in porcine circovirus type 2 infection cells

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is a ubiquitous pathogen in the swine industry worldwide. Previous studies have shown that PCV2 infection induces host cell apoptosis through up-regulation of p53. To further identify the regulatory roles of p53 signaling in the process of PCV2 infection, we established p53 gene knockout PK15 cell lines using the genomic editor tool CRISPR/Cas9, and ...

Increased methylation at differentially methylated region of GNAS in infants born to gestational diabetes

Background Offspring of pregnancy complicated with gestational diabetes (GDM) are at high risk for metabolic diseases. The mechanisms behind the association of intrauterine exposure to GDM and high risk of health problems in later life remain largely unknown. The aim of this study was to clarify the alteration in methylation levels at differentially methylated regions (DMRs) of ...

Prospective Screening of Family Members with Moyamoya Disease Patients

Background Genetic factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of moyamoya disease (MMD). Previous studies concentrated on familial MMD patients. In this study, we focused on family members of sporadic MMD patients, and aimed to gain a clearer understanding of the role that genetic factors play in MMD. Methods The immediate family members of MMD patients were initially ...

Reduced Fetal Telomere Length in Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an important complication of pregnancy that poses significant threats to women and their offspring. Telomere length shortens as cellular damage increases and is associated with metabolic diseases. Telomere length in fetal leucocytes was determined in 82 infants of women with GDM (N = 82) and 65 normal pregnant women (N = 65). Women with ...

Methylation levels at IGF2 and GNAS DMRs in infants born to preeclamptic pregnancies

quantitative assay of DNA methylation and data anlysis. CH (Cong Han) participated sample collection, experiment and data analysis. XY (Xiaoqun Ye) participated sample collection, experiment and data analysis

CytoSVM: an advanced server for identification of cytokine-receptor interactions

The interactions between cytokines and their complementary receptors are the gateways to properly understand a large variety of cytokine-specific cellular activities such as immunological responses and cell differentiation. To discover novel cytokine-receptor interactions, an advanced support vector machines (SVMs) model, CytoSVM, was constructed in this study. This model was ...

GEPS: the Gene Expression Pattern Scanner

Gene Expression Pattern Scanner (GEPS) is a web-based server to provide interactive pattern analysis of user-submitted microarray data for facilitating their further interpretation. Putative gene expression patterns such as correlated expression, similar expression and specific expression are determined globally and systematically using geometric comparison and correlation analysis ...

DITOP: drug-induced toxicity related protein database

Motivation: Drug-induced toxicity related proteins (DITRPs) are proteins that mediate adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or toxicities through their binding to drugs or reactive metabolites. Collection of these proteins facilitates better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of drug-induced toxicity and the rational drug discovery. Drug-induced toxicity related protein database ...
