Adiponectin attenuates high glucose-induced apoptosis through the AMPK/p38 MAPK signaling pathway in NRK-52E cells

Excessive apoptosis of proximal tubule cell is closely related to the development of diabetes. Recent evidence suggests that adiponectin (ADPN) protects cells from high glucose induced apoptosis. However, the precise mechanisms remain poorly understood. We sought to investigate the role of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38 MAPK) and AMP activated protein kinase (AMPK) in...

Fixed points of multi-valued monotone operators and the solvability of a fractional integral inclusion

Based on the characterizations of reproducing cones, some fixed point theorems for multi-valued increasing, decreasing, and mixed monotone operators are established. As an application, the solvability of a fractional integral inclusion is discussed.

Numerical dynamics of a nonstandard finite-difference-θ method for a red blood cell survival model

In this article, by a nonstandard finite-difference-θ (NSFD-θ) method we study the dynamics of a discrete red blood cell survival model. Firstly, the linear stability of the model is discussed. It is found that the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation exists when the delay passes a sequence of critical values. Then the explicit algorithm for determining the direction of the Neimark-Sacker...

SnoN upregulation ameliorates renal fibrosis in diabetic nephropathy

Progressive reduction of SnoN is associated with gradual elevation of TGF-β1 during diabetic nephropathy progression, suggesting SnoN to be a possible mediator of TGF-β1 signaling, with potential therapeutic benefits against TGF- β1 –induced renal fibrosis. To characterize SnoN for its role in renal fibrosis, we assessed SnoN expression patterns in response to high glucose stress...

Hybrid control of the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation in a delayed Nicholson’s blowflies equation

In this article, for delayed Nicholson’s blowflies equation, we propose a hybrid control nonstandard finite-difference (NSFD) scheme in which state feedback and parameter perturbation are used to control the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation. Firstly, the local stability of the positive equilibria for hybrid control delay differential equation is discussed according to Hopf bifurcation...

Histone methyltransferase TXR1 is required for both H3 and H3.3 lysine 27 methylation in the well-known ciliated protist Tetrahymena thermophila

DNA replication elongation is tightly controlled by histone-modifying enzymes. Our previous studies showed that the histone methytransferase TXR1 (Tetrahymena Trithorax related protein 1) specifically catalyzes H3K27 monomethylation and affects DNA replication elongation in Tetrahymena thermophila. In this study, we investigated whether TXR1 has a substrate preference to the...

Fat mass and fat distribution are associated with low back pain intensity and disability: results from a cohort study

Background Determining the association between body composition and low back pain (LBP) will improve our understanding of the mechanisms by which obesity affects LBP, and inform novel approaches to managing LBP. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between body composition and LBP intensity and disability. Methods A total of 5058 participants (44% men) of the...

Flow Regulation in Coronary Vascular Tree: A Model Study

Background Coronary blood flow can always be matched to the metabolic demand of the myocardium due to the regulation of vasoactive segments. Myocardial compressive forces play an important role in determining coronary blood flow but its impact on flow regulation is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to develop a coronary specified flow regulation model, which can...

RevEcoR: an R package for the reverse ecology analysis of microbiomes

Background All species live in complex ecosystems. The structure and complexity of a microbial community reflects not only diversity and function, but also the environment in which it occurs. However, traditional ecological methods can only be applied on a small scale and for relatively well-understood biological systems. Recently, a graph-theory-based algorithm called the...

OsWRKY74, a WRKY transcription factor, modulates tolerance to phosphate starvation in rice

The WRKY transcription factor family has 109 members in the rice genome, and has been reported to be involved in the regulation of biotic and abiotic stress in plants. Here, we demonstrated that a rice OsWRKY74 belonging to group III of the WRKY transcription factor family was involved in tolerance to phosphate (Pi) starvation. OsWRKY74 was localized in the nucleus and mainly...

Eigenspace-based beamformer using oblique signal subspace projection for ultrasound plane-wave imaging

Background The Eigenspace-based beamformers, by orthogonal projection of signal subspace, can remove a large part of the noise, and provide better imaging contrast upon the minimum variance beamformer. However, wrong estimate of signal and noise component may bring dark-spot artifacts and distort the signal intensity. The signal component and noise and interference components are...

Overexpression of A613T and G462T variants of DNA polymerase β weakens chemotherapy sensitivity in esophageal cancer cell lines

Background Human DNA polymerase β (polβ) is a small monomeric protein that is essential for short-patch base excision repair. It plays an important role in regulating the sensitivity of tumor cells to chemotherapy. Methods We evaluated the mutation of polβ in a larger cohort of esophageal cancer (EC) patients by RT-PCR and sequencing analysis. The function of the mutation was...

Recombinase polymerase amplification combined with a lateral flow dipstick for rapid and visual detection of Schistosoma japonicum

Background With the continuous decline in prevalence and intensity of Schistosoma japonicum infection in China, more accurate and sensitive methods suitable for field detection become much needed for schistosomiasis control. Here, a novel rapid and visual detection method based on the combination of recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) and lateral flow dipstick (LFD) was...
