Study on expression of plasma sCD138 in patients with hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome

Until now, there is non-specific treatment, and exploring early and novel biomarkers to determine the disease severity and prognosis of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) would be of importance for clinician to take systematic and timely intervention. This study observed the expression of plasma sCD138, a soluble component shedding from the glycocalyx (GCX) to the...

Study of the reparative effects of menstrual-derived stem cells on premature ovarian failure in mice

Background Young female patients who receive chemotherapy frequently face premature ovarian failure (POF). The therapeutic potential of stem cells in these patients has been explored in stem cells derived from different sources. However, many of these types of stem cells are either difficult to obtain or obtaining them involves invasive procedures. Here, we show that menstrual...

Disseminated intracranial xanthoma disseminatum: a rare case report and review of literature

Background Xanthoma disseminatum (XD) is a rare benign histiocytic proliferating disease of non-Langerhans cell origin, which is clinically mainly characterized by cutaneous or mucous lesions. Although XD is acknowledged of one systematic disease, involvement of the central nervous system is quite rare. Case presentation We presented one 34-year-old Chinese female with...

Improvement of betulinic acid biosynthesis in yeast employing multiple strategies

Betulinic acid (BA) is a lupane-type triterpene which has been considered as a promising agent to cure melanoma with no side effects. Considering that BA is naturally produced in small quantities in plants, we previously reported the success in engineering its production in yeast. In the present study, we attempted to improve BA biosynthesis in yeast by the use of different...

In vivo evidence for the contribution of peripheral circulating inflammatory exosomes to neuroinflammation

Neuroinflammation is implicated in the development and progression of many neurodegenerative diseases. Conditions that lead to a peripheral immune response are often associated with inflammation in the central nervous system (CNS), suggesting a communication between the peripheral immune system and the neuroimmune system. The underlying mechanism of this relationship remains...

An integrative framework for the identification of double minute chromosomes using next generation sequencing data

Background Double minute chromosomes are circular fragments of DNA whose presence is associated with the onset of certain cancers. Double minutes are lethal, as they are highly amplified and typically contain oncogenes. Locating double minutes can supplement the process of cancer diagnosis, and it can help to identify therapeutic targets. However, there is currently a dearth of...

Lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase 1 upregulation and concomitant phospholipid alterations in clear cell renal cell carcinoma

The involvement of lipid metabolism in tumourigenesis and the progression of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) have been reported. However, the role of phospholipid profile alterations in ccRCC has not yet been systematically explored. In the present study, we compared the phospholipid compositions between ccRCC and paired normal renal tissues. The phospholipid compositions...

BSPAT: a fast online tool for DNA methylation co-occurrence pattern analysis based on high-throughput bisulfite sequencing data

Background Bisulfite sequencing is one of the most widely used technologies in analyzing DNA methylation patterns, which are important in understanding and characterizing the mechanism of DNA methylation and its functions in disease development. Efficient and user-friendly tools are critical in carrying out such analysis on high-throughput bisulfite sequencing data. However...

A novel model for studying ileitis-induced visceral hypersensitivity in goats

Background Visceral hypersensitivity (VH) is a common condition in many gastrointestinal disorders such as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) in human and animals. Most studies often induce Crohn’s disease/colitis to investigate VH in small experimental animals. Although farm animals commonly suffer from IBDs, their VH has not been investigated so far. Because goats can suffer...

Molecular pathogenesis of lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue—from (auto)antigen driven selection to the activation of NF-κB signaling

Lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) are typically present at sites such as the stomach, lung or urinary tract, where lymphoid tissues scatter in mucosa lamina propria, intra- or sub-epithelial cells. The infection of certain pathogens, such as Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydophila psittaci, Borrelia burgdorferi, hepatitis C virus, or certain autoantigens cause...

Prognostic significance of p53 expression in patients with esophageal cancer: a meta-analysis

Background The prognostic value of p53 protein expression in esophageal cancer has been evaluated, but the results remain inconclusive and no consensus has yet been achieved. This meta-analysis was conducted to quantitatively assess the prognostic significance of p53 expression in esophageal cancer. Methods Publications that assessed the clinical or prognostic significance of p53...

Development of a fast and easy method for Escherichia coli genome editing with CRISPR/Cas9

Background Microbial genome editing is a powerful tool to modify chromosome in way of deletion, insertion or replacement, which is one of the most important techniques in metabolic engineering research. The emergence of CRISPR/Cas9 technique inspires various genomic editing methods. Results In this research, the goal of development of a fast and easy method for Escherichia coli...

Comparison of predictive modeling approaches for 30-day all-cause non-elective readmission risk

Background This paper explores the importance of electronic medical records (EMR) for predicting 30-day all-cause non-elective readmission risk of patients and presents a comparison of prediction performance of commonly used methods. Methods The data are extracted from eight Advocate Health Care hospitals. Index admissions are excluded from the cohort if they are observation...
