Suhuai suckling piglet hindgut microbiome-metabolome responses to different dietary copper levels

Unabsorbed copper accumulates in the hindgut of pigs that consume high levels of dietary copper, which enhances the coselection of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and is considered detrimental to the environment and to porcine health. In our study, a combination of 16S rRNA pyrosequencing and nontargeted metabolomics was used to investigate the microbiome-metabolome responses to...

HOXC6 gene silencing inhibits epithelial-mesenchymal transition and cell viability through the TGF-β/smad signaling pathway in cervical carcinoma cells

Homeobox C6 (HOXC6) plays a part in malignant progression of some tumors. However, the expression of HOXC6 and its clinical significance remains unclear in cervical carcinoma (CC). The purpose of this study is to verify the effects of HOXC6 gene silencing on CC through the TGF-β/smad signaling pathway. CC tissues and corresponding paracancerous tissues were collected from CC...

Entropy-Based Model for Interpreting Life Systems in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treats qi as the core of the human life systems. Starting with a hypothetical correlation between TCM qi and the entropy theory, we address in this article a holistic model for evaluating and unveiling the rule of TCM life systems. Several new concepts such as acquired life entropy (ALE), acquired life entropy flow (ALEF) and acquired life...

Effect of Micro-scale Y Addition on the Fracture Properties of Al–Cu–Mn Alloy

. His research interests include casting micro-structure controls, material micro-structures and properties and the preparation of bulk ultra-fine grained materials. Feng Zhang, born in 1991, is a

Field Measurement of Dynamic Compressive Stress Response of Pavement-Subgrade Induced by Moving Heavy-Duty Trucks

This paper presents the dynamic compressive stress response of pavement-subgrade induced by moving heavy-duty trucks. In order to study the distribution characteristic of dynamic pressure of pavement-subgrade in more detail, truck loadings, truck speeds, and dynamic pressure distributions at different depths were monitored under twenty-five working conditions on the section of...

The emerging role of fibrocytes in ocular disorders

The fibrocyte, which was first described in 1994, is a type of circulating mesenchymal progenitor cell in the peripheral blood. Fibrocytes play important roles in chronic inflammation, wound healing, tissue remodeling, and fibrosis. Emerging evidence indicates that fibrocytes are involved in a wide variety of ocular disorders associated with inflammation and fibrosis. In this...

NF-кB increases LPS-mediated procalcitonin production in human hepatocytes

For years, procalcitonin (PCT) has been employed as a diagnostic biomarker for the severity of sepsis and septic shock, as well as for guiding the application of antibiotics. However, the molecular/cellular basis for the regulation of PCT production is not fully understood. In this study, we identified the signalling pathway by which the expression of PCT was induced by...

DEM Investigation of Particle-Scale Mechanical Properties of Frozen Soil Based on the Nonlinear Microcontact Model Incorporating Rolling Resistance

Although frozen soil is in nature the discrete material, it is generally treated as the continuum material. The mechanical properties of frozen soil are so complex to describe adequately by conventional continuum mechanics method. In this study, the nonlinear microcontact model incorporating rolling resistance is proposed to investigate the particle-scale mechanical properties of...

Cat-D: a targeted sequencing method for the simultaneous detection of small DNA mutations and large DNA deletions with flexible boundaries

We developed a targeted DNA sequencing method that is capable of detecting a comprehensive panel of DNA mutations including small DNA mutations and large DNA deletions with unknown/flexible boundaries. The method directly identifies the large DNA deletions (Cat-D) without relying on sequencing coverage to make the genotype calls. We performed the method to simultaneously detect...
