Histone deacetylase inhibitor SAHA attenuates post-seizure hippocampal microglia TLR4/MYD88 signaling and inhibits TLR4 gene expression via histone acetylation

Background Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. Seizure-induced TLR4/MYD88 signaling plays a critical role in activating microglia and triggering neuron apoptosis. SAHA is a histone deacetylase inhibitor that regulates gene expression by increasing chromatin histone acetylation. In this study, we investigated the role of SAHA in ...

Insights into long noncoding RNAs of naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber) and their potential association with cancer resistance

Background Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a class of ubiquitous noncoding RNAs and have been found to act as tumor suppressors or oncogenes, which dramatically altered our understanding of cancer. Naked mole rat (NMR, Heterocephalus glaber) is an exceptionally long-lived and cancer-resistant rodent; however, whether lncRNAs play roles in cancer resistance in this seductive ...

Synthesis of palladium and palladium sulfide nanocrystals via thermolysis of a Pd–thiolate cluster

A novel one-pot approach to synthesize the tiara-like Pd(II) thiolate complex compound, [Pd(SCH3)2]6 was developed. In this strategy, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was used as a thiolate source instead of methyl mercaptan (CH3SH). DMSO was first decomposed into CH3SH and formaldehyde (HCHO); then, the in situ as-formed CH3SH molecules reacted with palladium acetate, and formed ...

Comparison of Risk Factor between Lacunar Stroke and Large Artery Atherosclerosis Stroke: A Cross-Sectional Study in China

Background Stroke is the second most common cause of mortality in China. Although most subtypes of ischemic stroke share similar risk factors, they have different etiologies. Our study aimed to evaluate the different risk factor profiles between the stroke subtypes, lacunar infarcts (LI) and large-artery atherosclerosis (LAA), and clarify the characteristics of current acute ...

A Genome-Wide Scan Reveals Important Roles of DNA Methylation in Human Longevity by Regulating Age-Related Disease Genes

It is recognized that genetic factors contribute to human longevity. Besides the hypothesis of existence of longevity genes, another suggests that a lower frequency of risk alleles decreases the incidence of age-related diseases in the long-lived people. However, the latter finds no support from recent genetic studies. Considering the crucial role of epigenetic modification in gene ...

Isolation of a novel alkaline-stable lipase from a metagenomic library and its specific application for milkfat flavor production

Background Lipolytic enzymes are commonly used to produce desired flavors in lipolyzed milkfat (LMF) manufacturing processes. However, the choice of enzyme is critical because it determines the final profile of fatty acids released and the consequent flavor of the product. We previously constructed a metagenomic library from marine sediments, to explore the novel enzymes which have ...

Mitochondrial DNA Content Contributes to Climate Adaptation Using Chinese Populations as a Model

Maintaining a balance between ATP synthesis and heat generation is crucial for adapting to changes in climate. Variation in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which encodes 13 subunits of the respiratory chain complexes, may contribute to climate adaptation by regulating thermogenesis and the use of bioenergy. However, studies looking for a relationship between mtDNA haplogroups and ...

Surface active sites on Co3O4 nanobelt and nanocube model catalysts for CO oxidation

CO oxidation has been performed on Co3O4 nanobelts and nanocubes as model catalysts. The Co3O4 nanobelts which have a predominance of exposed {011} planes are more active than Co3O4 nanocubes with exposed {001} planes. Temperature programmed reduction of CO shows that Co3O4 nanobelts have stronger reducing properties than Co3O4 nanocubes. The essence of shape and crystal plane ...

Existence of Prophenoloxidase in Wing Discs: A Source of Plasma Prophenoloxidase in the Silkworm, Bombyx mori

In insects, hemocytes are considered as the only source of plasma prophenoloxidase (PPO). PPO also exists in the hemocytes of the hematopoietic organ that is connected to the wing disc of Bombyx mori. It is unknown whether there are other cells or tissues that can produce PPO and release it into the hemolymph besides circulating hemocytes. In this study, we use the silkworm as a ...
