High-Throughput Sequencing Reveals the Gut Microbiome of the Bactrian Camel in Different Ages

The complex gut microbiota plays a key role in host metabolism and health. However, the core microbial communities in the different aged Bactrian camels remain totally unclear. We used high-throughput 16S rRNA gene sequencing to examine the temporal variability of the fecal microbiota in Bactrian camels. At 2 months of age, the fecal microbiota was composed of Firmicutes...

Low glucose and metformin-induced apoptosis of human ovarian cancer cells is connected to ASK1 via mitochondrial and endoplasmic reticulum stress-associated pathways

Metformin, a first-line drug for type 2 diabetes, could induce apoptosis in cancer cells. However, the concentration of glucose affects the effect of metformin, especially low glucose in the culture medium can enhance the cytotoxicity of metformin on cancer cells. Since mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum is vital for maintaining cell homeostasis, we speculate that low glucose...

Comparative analysis of fecal microbial communities in cattle and Bactrian camels

Bactrian camels may have a unique gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome because of their distinctive digestive systems, unique eating habits and extreme living conditions. However, understanding of the microbial communities in the Bactrian camel GI tract is still limited. In this study, microbial communities were investigated by comparative analyses of 16S rRNA hypervariable region V4...

Ryanodine receptor 2 contributes to hemorrhagic shock-induced bi-phasic vascular reactivity in rats

Morphology Effect on the Kinetic Parameters and Surface Thermodynamic Properties of Ag3PO4 Micro-/Nanocrystals

Considerable effort has been exerted using theoretical calculations to determine solid surface energies. Nanomaterials with high surface energy depending on morphology and size exhibit enhanced reactivity. Thus, investigating the effects of morphology, size, and nanostructure on the surface energies and kinetics of nanomaterials is important. This study determined the surface...

FSP-1 Impairs the Function of Endothelium Leading to Failure of Arteriovenous Grafts in Diabetic Mice

To understand how endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction contributes to the failure of arteriovenous graft (AVG), we investigated the role of fibroblast-specific protein 1 (FSP-1) in cultured ECs and a mouse AVG model. In vitro, we uncovered a new FSP-1-dependent pathway that activates rho-associated, coiled-coil-containing protein kinase 1 (ROCK1) in ECs, leading to phosphorylation...

The UII/UT System Mediates Upregulation of Proinflammatory Cytokines through p38 MAPK and NF-κB Pathways in LPS-Stimulated Kupffer Cells

The urotensin II (UII)/UII receptor (UT) system is closely related to immune inflammation. In acute liver failure (ALF), the UII/UT system can promote the production and release of proinflammatory cytokines, inducing an inflammatory injury response in liver tissue. However, the mechanism by which the hepatic UII/UT system promotes proinflammatory cytokine production and release...

Local injection of mesenchymal stem cells protects testicular torsion-induced germ cell injury

Introduction Testicular torsion is a urological emergency and infertility is a common complication due to ischemic injury. Surgical reduction and orchiopexy is indicated, but to date there is no effective method for restoration of spermatogenesis. The effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on acute tissue injury have been demonstrated, and the abilities of paracrine support...

Enhancement of recombinant myricetin on the radiosensitivity of lung cancer A549 and H1299 cells

Objective Myricetin, a common dietary flavonoid is widely distributed in fruits and vegetables, and is used as a health food supplement based on its immune function, anti-oxidation, anti-tumor, and anti-inflammatory properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of myricetin on combination with radiotherapy enhance radiosensitivity of lung cancer A549 and H1299...

Vimentin is a potential prognostic factor for tongue squamous cell carcinoma among five epithelial–mesenchymal transition-related proteins

We aimed to investigate the association of the expression levels of five epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related proteins (Snail, Twist, E-cadherin, N-cadherin, and Vimentin) with tumorigenesis, pathologic parameters and prognosis in tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) patients by immunohistochemistry of tissue microarray. The expression levels of Snail, E-cadherin, N...

Honokiol inhibits sphere formation and xenograft growth of oral cancer side population cells accompanied with JAK/STAT signaling pathway suppression and apoptosis induction

Background Eliminating cancer stem cells (CSCs) has been suggested for prevention of tumor recurrence and metastasis. Honokiol, an active compound of Magnolia officinalis, had been proposed to be a potential candidate drug for cancer treatment. We explored its effects on the elimination of oral CSCs both in vitro and in vivo. Methods By using the Hoechst side population (SP...

Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 4 Polymorphism Is Associated with Liver Cirrhosis in Hepatocarcinoma

Background Fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4) polymorphisms are positively correlated with tumor progression in numerous malignant tumors. However, the association between FGFR4 genetic variants and the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not yet been determined. In this study, we investigated the potential associations of FGFR4 single nucleotide polymorphisms...

Modulation of Intestinal Epithelial Cell Proliferation, Migration, and Differentiation In Vitro by Astragalus Polysaccharides

Previous studies have shown that Astragalus polysaccharides (APS) can be used to treat general gastrointestinal disturbances including intestinal mucosal injury. However, the mechanism by which APS mediate this effect is unclear. In the present study, the effects of APS on proliferation, migration, and differentiation of intestinal epithelial cells (IEC-6) were assessed using an...
