Pigment Epithelium-Derived Factor Plays a Role in Alzheimer’s Disease by Negatively Regulating Aβ42

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), a unique neurotrophic protein, decreases with aging. Previous reports have conflicted regarding whether the PEDF concentration is altered in AD patients. In addition, the effect of PEDF on AD has not been documented. Here, we tested serum samples of 31 AD patients and 271...

Critical effects of long non-coding RNA on fibrosis diseases

The expression or dysfunction of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) is closely related to various hereditary diseases, autoimmune diseases, metabolic diseases and tumors. LncRNAs were also recently recognized as functional regulators of fibrosis, which is a secondary process in many of these diseases and a primary pathology in fibrosis diseases. We review the latest findings on...

Numerical solution of the one-dimensional fractional convection diffusion equations based on Chebyshev operational matrix

In this paper, we are concerned with nonlinear one-dimensional fractional convection diffusion equations. An effective approach based on Chebyshev operational matrix is constructed to obtain the numerical solution of fractional convection diffusion equations with variable coefficients. The principal characteristic of the approach is the new orthogonal functions based on Chebyshev...

A Generalized Demodulation and Hilbert Transform Based Signal Decomposition Method

This paper proposes a new signal decomposition method that aims to decompose a multicomponent signal into monocomponent signal. The main procedure is to extract the components with frequencies higher than a given bisecting frequency by three steps: (1) the generalized demodulation is used to project the components with lower frequencies onto negative frequency domain, (2) the...

DMBA acts on cumulus cells to desynchronize nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation of pig oocytes

As an environmental pollutant and carcinogen, 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) can destroy ovarian follicles at all developmental stages in rodents. However, the underlying molecular mechanism remains obscure. In the present study, we aim to address how DMBA affects the in vitro maturation and development of porcine oocytes. We discovered that for 20 μM DMBA-treated cumulus...

Chronic rhinosinusitis is associated with higher prevalence and severity of bronchiectasis in patients with COPD

Modelling the use of impulsive vaccination to control Rift Valley Fever virus transmission

In this paper, we propose a vector-bone dynamical model to against the transmission of Rift Valley Fever (RVF) between ruminants and mosquitoes, where impulsive vaccination for susceptible ruminants is introduced. By using the comparison principle, integral and differential inequalities, and some of analytical skills, the threshold values for the stability of the disease-free...

Study on Millimeter-Wave Vivaldi Rectenna and Arrays with High Conversion Efficiency

A novel Vivaldi rectenna operated at 35 GHz with high millimeter wave to direct current (MMW-to-DC) conversion efficiency is presented and the arrays are investigated. The measured conversion efficiency is 51.6% at 35 GHz and the efficiency higher than 30% is from 33.2 GHz to 36.6 GHz when the input MMW power is 79.4 mW. The receiving Vivaldi antenna loaded with metamaterial...

The healing of alveolar bone defects with novel bio-implants composed of Ad-BMP9-transfected rDFCs and CHA scaffolds

Cells, scaffolds, and growth factors play important roles in bone regeneration. Bone morphogenetic protein 9 (BMP9), a member of BMP family, could facilitate osteogenesis by regulating growth factors and promoting angiogenesis. Similar to other stem cells, rat dental follicle stem cells (rDFCs), the precursor cells of cementoblasts, osteoblasts and periodontal ligament cells, can...

Comparison between New-Onset and Old-Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes with Ketosis in Rural Regions of China

Objectives. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) with ketosis was common because of late diagnosis and lacking adequate treatment in rural regions of China. This study aimed to provide the data of T2D with ketosis among inpatients in a south-west border city of China. Methods. Data of 371 patients of T2D with ketosis who were hospitalized between January 2011 and July 2015 in Baoshan People’s...

Deletion of ssnA Attenuates the Pathogenicity of Streptococcus suis and Confers Protection against Serovar 2 Strain Challenge

Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) is a major porcine and human pathogen which causes arthritis, meningitis, and septicemia. Streptococcus suis nuclease A (SsnA) is a recently discovered deoxyribonuclease (DNase), which has been demonstrated to contribute to escape killing in neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs). To further determine the effects of ssnA on virulence, the ssnA...

MicroRNA-21 and PDCD4 expression during in vitro oocyte maturation in pigs

Background MicroRNA (miRNA) are small non-coding RNA molecules critical for regulating cellular function, and are abundant in the maturing oocyte and developing embryo. MiRNA-21 (MIR21) has been shown to elicit posttranscriptional gene regulation in several tissues associated with rapid cell proliferation in addition to demonstrating anti-apoptotic features through interactions...
