    ABSTRACT: Extracellular matrix (ECM) components have become important candidate materials as neural scaffolds for neural tissue engineering. In this study, we prepared cauda equina-derived ECM material for producing scaffolds. Natural porcine cauda equina was decellularized with use of TritonX-100 and sodium deoxycholate, then physically shattered and made into a suspension by differential centrifugation. The decellularization procedure resulted in the removal of > 94% nuclear material and well preserved the extracellular collagen, sulfated glycosaminoglycan (sGAG). Immunofluorescence staining confirmed the presence of collagen type I, laminin, and fibronectin in ECM. Cauda equina ECM was blended with poly(l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) to fabricate nano-structured scaffolds by electrospinning. The incorporation of ECM increased the hydrophilicity of scaffolds. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and multiphoton-induced autofluorescence images showed the presence of ECM in the scaffolds. ECM/PLGA scaffolds were beneficial to the survival of Schwann cells as compared with PLGA-alone scaffolds, and aligned fibers could regulate cell morphologic features by inducing cell orientation. Axons in dorsal root ganglia explants extended to a greater extent along ECM/PLGA than PLGA-alone fibers. Cauda equina ECM may be promising material of scaffolds for neural tissue engineering.

    ABSTRACT: Plastid casein kinase 2 (CK2) is a major Ser/Thr-specific enzyme for protein phosphorylation in the chloroplast stroma and its kinase activity is regulated by redox signals. To understand the role of CK2 phosphorylation of chloroplast proteins in abiotic stress signalling, an Arabidopsis plastid CK2 (CKA4) knockout mutant was investigated in terms of the plant response to abscisic acid (ABA) and heat stress. CKA4 expression was upregulated by ABA and heat treatment. The cka4 mutant showed reduced sensitivity to ABA during seed germination and seedling growth, and increased stomatal aperture and leaf water loss with a slightly reduced leaf ABA level. The cka4 mutant was more sensitive to heat stress than the wild-type Columbia-0. The expression levels of a number of genes in the ABA regulatory network were reduced in the cka4 mutant. Many heat-upregulated genes (heat-shock factors and heat-shock proteins) were also reduced in the cka4 mutant. The cka4 mutant showed reduced expression levels of plastid-encoded RNA polymerase target genes (atpB and psbA). CKA4 knockout mutation also resulted in a reduction in expression of some critical genes (PTM, ABI4, and PRS1) involved in retrograde signalling from the chloroplast to the nucleus. Similar results were observed in mutant plants with the knockout mutation in both CKA4 and CKA3, which encodes a nuclear CK2 α3 subunit. CKA3 expression was not responsive to ABA and heat stress. These results suggest that CKA4 is an enhancing factor in abiotic stress signalling through modulating the expression of some molecular players in retrograde signalling.

    ABSTRACT: We sought to investigate the characteristics, survival and risk factors for mortality in Chinese patients with connective tissue disease (CTD)-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (APAH) in modern therapy era.129 consecutive adult patients who visited one of three referral centres in China with a diagnosis of CTD-APAH confirmed by right heart catheterisation during the previous 5 years were enrolled. The end-point was all-cause death or data censoring.Systemic lupus erythematosus was the most common underlying CTD (49%) and systemic sclerosis just accounted for 6% in this cohort. The overall survival at 1 and 3 years was 92% and 80%, respectively. Pericardial effusion, a shorter 6-min walk distance, lower mixed venous oxygen saturation, higher pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and lower total cholesterol levels were all associated with a higher risk of death among the study population. Higher PVR and ALP were independent predictors of mortality.In conclusion, unlike in western patients, systemic lupus erythematosus is the most common underlying disease in Chinese patients with CTD-APAH. The survival of Chinese patients with CTD-APAH in the modern treatment era is similar to that in western countries. Elevated PVR and ALP are independent risk factors for poor outcomes.

    ABSTRACT: Forkhead box M1 (FoxM1) transcription factor is related to the pathogenesis of various malignancies and recent evidence indicates that FoxM1 promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in breast cancer. Metformin can inhibit the progression of cancer. However, whether FoxM1 plays a role in EMT in prostate cancer (PCa) and whether metformin can suppress EMT through FoxM1 in PCa remain unresolved issues. In this study, we investigated the expression levels of the FoxM1 protein in 62 PCa and 39 benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) samples and found that the expression levels of FoxM1 were higher in the PCa tissues (66.1%) compared with the BPH tissues (28.2%) (p<0.05). We observed that FoxM1 was expressed in the PCa cell lines and that metformin suppressed cell proliferation and the expression of FoxM1. We induced EMT in the PCa cells by the addition of transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 and verified the process by examining EMT-related gene (E-cadherin, vimentin and Slug) expression. In addition, the knockdown of FoxM1 by shRNA in the PCa cells reversed EMT and markedly reduced cell migration. These results indicate that metformin suppresses EMT by inhibiting FoxM1. We demonstrate that the suppression of FoxM1 may be an effective therapeutic strategy for PCa and provide further evidence of the anticancer effects of metformin.

    ABSTRACT: Bisphosphonates (BPs) have been widely used in clinical treatment of bone diseases with increased bone resorption because of their strong affinity for bone and their inhibition of bone resorption. Recently, there has been growing interest in their improvement of bone formation. However, the effect of local controlled delivery of BPs is unclear. We used polylactide acid-glycolic acid copolymer (PLGA) as a drug carrier to deliver various doses of the bisphosphonate zoledronate (Zol) into the distal femur of 8-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats. After 6 weeks, samples were harvested and analyzed by micro-CT and histology. The average bone mineral density and mineralized bone volume fraction were higher with medium- and high-dose PLGA-Zol (30 and 300 µg Zol, respectively) than control and low-dose Zol (3 µg PLGA-Zol; p<0.05). Local controlled delivery of Zol decreased the numbers of osteoclast and increased the numbers of osteoblast. Moreover, local controlled delivery of medium- and high-dose Zol accelerated the expression of bone-formation markers. PLGA used as a drug carrier for controlled delivery of Zol may promote local bone formation.

    ABSTRACT: Severely calcified coronary lesions respond poorly to balloon angioplasty, resulting in incomplete and asymmetrical stent expansion. Therefore, adequate plaque modification prior to drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation is the key for calcified lesion treatment. This study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cutting balloon angioplasty for severely calcified coronary lesions. Ninety-two consecutive patients with severely calcified lesions (defined as calcium arc ≥ 180° calcium length ratio ≥ 0.5) treated with balloon dilatation before DES implantation were randomly divided into two groups based on the balloon type: 45 patients in the conventional balloon angioplasty (BA) group and 47 patients in the cutting balloon angioplasty (CB) group. Seven cases in BA group did not satisfactorily achieve dilatation and were transferred into the CB group. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was performed before balloon dilatation and after stent implantation to obtain qualitative and quantitative lesion characteristics and evaluate the stent, including minimum lumen cross-sectional area (CSA), calcified arc and length, minimum stent CSA, stent apposition, stent symmetry, stent expansion, vessel dissection, and branch vessel jail. In-hospital, 1-month, and 6-month major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were reported. There were no statistical differences in clinical characteristics between the two groups, including calcium arc (222.2° ± 22.2° vs. 235.0° ± 22.1°, P = 0.570), calcium length ratio (0.67 ± 0.06 vs. 0.77 ± 0.05, P = 0.130), and minimum lumen CSA before PCI (2.59 ± 0.08 mm(2) vs. 2.52 ± 0.08 mm(2), P = 0.550). After stent implantation, the final minimum stent CSA (6.26 ± 0.40 mm(2) vs. 5.03 ± 0.33 mm(2); P = 0.031) and acute lumen gain (3.74 ± 0.38 mm(2) vs. 2.44 ± 0.29 mm(2), P = 0.015) were significantly larger in the CB group than that of the BA group. There were not statistically differences in stent expansion, stent symmetry, incomplete stent apposition, vessel dissection and branch vessel jail between two groups. The 30-day and 6-month MACE rates were also not different. Cutting balloon angioplasty before DES implantation in severely calcified lesions appears to be more efficacies including significantly larger final stent CSA and larger acute lumen gain, without increasing complications during operations and the MACE rate in 6-month.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To evaluate the performance of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism in predicting hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) in Chinese patients with hypertension. Methods: We measured plasma total homocysteine tHcy level and C677T genotype in 1058 Chinese patients with hypertension from 4 previous studies. We used 10, 15, and 20 μmol/L as cutoff values for the definition of mild, modest, and severe HHcy, respectively. Logistic models for HHcy were built from the study sample using the C677T genotype as well as age and gender as predictors. The receiver-operating characteristics of the models were evaluated. Results: Our major findings are that (1) C677T TT genotype is consistently associated with a higher tHcy across the 4 studies, with an increase in size ranging from 38% to 68% in the 4 studies and 51% overall. The C677T polymorphism independently explained about 14% of the total variance of the normalized tHcy. (2) The TT genotype is associated with a large increase in odds ratio (OR) for HHcy. Overall, the multivariate-adjusted ORs for the TT genotype are 3.9 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 2.4-6.4), 6.5 (95% CI: 4.0-10.6), and 17.9 (95% CI: 8.4-38.1) for mild, modest, and severe HHcy, respectively. (3) Overall, the predicting performance increased with HHcy severity, with sensitivity improving from 31.0% for mild HHcy to 70.3% for severe HHcy, and with specificity slightly decreasing from 85.4% to 80.3%. Inclusion of gender and age as predictors significantly improves the sensitivity, especially for predicting mild HHcy. Conclusion: With an excellent sensitivity and a modest specificity, C677T could be a useful screening marker for severe HHcy.

    ABSTRACT: Cartilage extracellular matrix (ECM) is composed primarily of the network type II collagen (COLII) and an interlocking mesh of fibrous proteins and proteoglycans (PGs), hyaluronic acid (HA), and chondroitin sulfate (CS). Articular cartilage ECM plays a crucial role in regulating chondrocyte metabolism and functions, such as organized cytoskeleton through integrin-mediated signaling via cell-matrix interaction. Cell signaling through integrins regulates several chondrocyte functions, including differentiation, metabolism, matrix remodeling, responses to mechanical stimulation, and cell survival. The major signaling pathways that regulate chondrogenesis have been identified as wnt signal, nitric oxide (NO) signal, protein kinase C (PKC), and retinoic acid (RA) signal. Integrins are a large family of molecules that are central regulators in multicellular biology. They orchestrate cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesive interactions from embryonic development to mature tissue function. In this review, we emphasize the signaling molecule effect and the biomechanics effect of cartilage ECM on chondrogenesis.

    ABSTRACT: Osteoporosis is associated with delayed and/or reduced fracture healing. As cervus and cucumis are the traditional Chinese treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, we investigated the effect of supplementation of these peptides (CCP) on bone fracture healing in ovariectomized (OVX) osteoporotic rats in vitro and in vivo. CCP enhanced osteoblast proliferation and increased alkaline phosphatase activity, matrix mineralization, and expression of runt-related transcription factor 2 (Runx2), bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4), and osteopontin. In vivo, female Sprague-Dawley rats underwent ovariectomy and the right femora were fractured and fixed by intramedullary nailing 3 months later. Rats received intraperitoneal injections of either CCP (1.67 mg/kg) or physiological saline every day for 30 days. Fracture healing and callus formation were evaluated by radiography, micro-CT, biomechanical testing, and histology. At 12 weeks after fracture, calluses in CCP-treated bones showed significantly higher torsional strength and greater stiffness than control-treated bones. Bones in CCP-treated rats reunified and were thoroughly remodeled, while two saline-treated rats showed no bone union and incomplete remodeling. Taken together, these results indicate that use of CCP after fracture in osteoporotic rats accelerates mineralization and osteogenesis and improves fracture healing.

    ABSTRACT: It is now 40 years since bisphosphonates (BPs) were first used in the clinic. So, it is timely to provide a brief review of what we have learned about these agents in bone disease. BPs are bone-specific and have been classified into two major groups on the basis of their distinct molecular modes of action: amino-BPs and non-amino-BPs. The amino-BPs are more potent and they inhibit farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase (FPPS), a key enzyme of the mavalonate/cholesterol biosynthetic pathway, while the non-amino-BPs inhibit osteoclast activity, by incorporation into non-hydrolyzable analogs of ATP. Both amino-BPs and non-amino-BPs can protect osteoblasts and osteocytes against apoptosis. The BPs are widely used in the clinic to treat various diseases characterized by excessive bone resorption, including osteoporosis, myeloma, bone metastasis, Legg-Perthes disease, malignant hyperparathyroidism, and other conditions featuring bone fragility. This review provides insights into some of the adverse effects of BPs, such as gastric irritation, osteonecrosis of the jaw, atypical femoral fractures, esophageal cancer, atrial fibrillation, and ocular inflammation. In conclusion, this review covers the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of action of BPs in bone, particularly the discovery that BPs have direct anti-apoptotic effects on osteoblasts and osteocytes, and the current situation of BP use in the clinic.

    ABSTRACT: Uncertainty exists regarding the relative performance of drug-eluting stents (DES) versus bare-metal stents (BMS) in octogenarians undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We undertook a meta-analysis to assess outcomes for DES and BMS in octogenarians undergoing PCI. Electronic data bases of PubMed, Cochrane, and EMBASE were searched. We included randomized, controlled clinical trials (RCT) and observational studies comparing DES and BMS in octogenarians receiving PCI. The methodological qualities of eligible trials were assessed using a "risk of bias" tool. The endpoints included all-cause death, major adverse cardiac events (MACE), myocardial infarction (MI), target vessel revascularization (TVR), major bleeding, and stent thrombosis (ST). Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were calculated for each endpoint. A total of one RCT and six observational studies were included and analyzed in this meta-analysis. All trials were of acceptable quality. At 30 days, compared with DES-treated patients, BMS-treated patients had a higher incidence of mortality (OR: 3.91, 95% CI: 1.10-13.91; P = 0.03). The OR for MACE (1.52, 95% CI: 0.56-4.17; P = 0.13), MI (0.81, 95% CI: 0.37-2.17; P = 0.23), TVR (0.75, 95% CI: 0.17-3.41; P = 0.41), major bleeding (0.77, 95% CI: 0.35-1.68; P = 0.43), and ST (1.44, 95% CI: 0.32-6.45; P = 0.33) did not reach statistical significance. At one year follow-up, the OR did not favor BMS over MACE (MACE, defined as the composite of death, myocardial infarction, and TVR) (1.87; 95% CI: 1.22-2.87; P < 0.01), MI (1.91, 95% CI: 1.22-2.99; P < 0.01), TVR (3.08, 95% CI: 1.80-5.26; P < 0.01) and ST (3.37, 95% CI: 1.12-10.13; P < 0.01). The OR for mortality (1.51; 95% CI: 0.92-2.47; P = 0.10) and major bleeding (0.85, 95% CI: 0.47-1.55; P = 0.60) did not reach statistical significance. At > 1 year follow-up, the OR for all endpoints, including mortality, MACE, MI, TVR, major bleeding, and ST, did not reach statistical significance. Our meta-analysis suggests that DES is associated with favorable outcomes as compared with BMS in octogenarians receiving PCI.

    ABSTRACT: AtGALK2 belongs to galactokinase of GHMP family in Arabidopsis thaliana. Two homozygous T-DNA insertion mutants (Atgalk2-1 and Atgalk2-2) of the AtGALK2 gene were identified. The AtGALK2 gene was highly expressed in flowers and roots, but less in stems, leaves and petioles. It was found that the expression of AtGALK2 gene was induced by NaCl and ABA. The two Atgalk2 mutants showed higher germination activity when treated with ABA and NaCl than wild type (Col-0). Through comparing the results of seed germination, root growth, stomatal aperture, water loss, and proline accumulation between the Atgalk2 mutants and Col-0, it was found that Atgalk2 mutants showed less sensitive to ABA than Col-0. The expression levels of ABI1, ABI2, RAB18, ABF3, RD22, RD29A, and RD29B in the Atgalk2 mutants were higher than in Col-0. However, the expression level of OST1 in the Atgalk2 mutants was lower than in Col-0. Taken together, these results suggested AtGALK2 was required for abscisic acid regulation of seed germination, root growth and gene expression, and was involved in salt and osmotic stress response in the early development stage. This study provides important clues to galactokinase activities of GHMP family in ABA signaling and plant development.

    ABSTRACT: To explore the significance of pseudocapsule in the excision of pituitary adenomas in transsphenoidal surgery. For 22 patients with pituitary adenomas over a period of 2 years at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, resection of pseudocapsule was applied for complete tumor removal. Pituitary function test and radiological imaging were performed at pre-operation, 3 months post-operation and at subsequent 6-12 months intervals postoperatively. All pituitary adenomas were totally removed under microscope. The symptoms of headache, disorder of sight and visual field disappeared postoperatively in nonfunctional pituitary adenomas. The GH levels of 2/5 growth hormone secreting adenoma patients were 4.2 and 7.7 µg/L while it was under 1 µg/L for another 3. The postoperative level of prolactin was 4.3 µg/L in prolactin secreting adenoma. The level of adrenocorticotropic hormore decreased under 5 ng/L except one was 15.7 ng/L. Leakage of cerebrospinal fluid occurred intraoperatively in 3 patients and postoperatively in 1. No leakage was found after repair. Diabetes insipidus occurred in one patient and was controlled with Minirin. Pseudocapsule was confirmed by pathological examination. Special staining revealed reticulum fibers in pseudocapsule. Resection of pseudocapsule may achieve a higher remission rate without deteriorating pituitary function.

    ABSTRACT: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are non-haematopoietic stromal stem cells that have many sources, such as bone marrow, periosteum, vessel walls, adipose, muscle, tendon, peripheral circulation, umbilical cord blood, skin and dental tissues. They are capable of self-replication and of differentiating into, and contributing to the regeneration of, mesenchymal tissues, such as bone, cartilage, ligament, tendon, muscle and adipose tissue. The homing of MSCs may play an important role in the repair of bone fractures. As a composite material, the formation and growth of bone tissue is a complex process, including molecular, cell and biochemical metabolic changes. The recruitment of factors with an adequate number of MSCs and the micro-environment around the fracture are effective for fracture repair. Several studies have investigated the functional expression of various chemokine receptors, trophic factors and adhesion molecules in human MSCs. Many external factors affect MSC homing. MSCs have been used as seed cells in building tissue-engineered bone grafts. Scaffolds seeded with MSCs are most often used in tissue engineering and include biotic and abiotic materials. This knowledge provides a platform for the development of novel therapies for bone regeneration with endogenous MSCs.

    ABSTRACT: To test the hypothesis that pharmacological postconditioning with lactic acid and low dose edaravone could mimic the upper trigger of mechanical postconditioning and relieve reperfusion injury through mitochondrial pathway. Rats were randomly divided into 6 groups (n = 18 each): sham, reperfusion/injury(I/R), postconditioning (IP), lactic acid (Lac, 60 µl), low dose edaravone (Eda, 3 µg/kg), and Lac+Eda. After 45 min myocardial ischemia, different drugs or saline were administrated around the infarct border according to different groups using micro syringe at the time of reperfusion. After 10 min reperfusion, right atrial plasma pH value was determined in all rats. Then the rats were sacrificed at 1, 6 and 24 h (n = 6 each), apoptotic index was measured by TUNEL, infarct area and ischemic area were measured through Evans blue-TTC double staining, mitochondrial absorbance, the contents of MDA and SOD in ischemic myocardium were detected by spectrophotometry, and the expression of apoptotic pathway molecules, such as Bcl-2, Bax and Cytochrome c (Cyt-c) , were detected by Western blot. Right atrial plasma pH value was significantly lower, the content of MDA was significantly lower, and the content of SOD was significantly higher in IP and Lac+Eda groups than in I/R group (all P < 0.05). The mitochondrial absorbance in Lac+Eda group at all time points were all significantly higher than those in I/R group (all P < 0.05). The level of Bcl-2 in ischemic myocardium in Lac+Eda group was significantly higher than in I/R group (1.02 ± 0.19 vs.0.02 ± 0.01, P < 0.05), the level of Bax (0.38 ± 0.07 vs.2.40 ± 0.45, P < 0.05) and Cyt-c(0.78 ± 0.05 vs.6.54 ± 1.86, P < 0.05) were all lower than those in I/R group. The content of CK[(849 ± 228) vs.(1249 ± 211) U/L, P < 0.05] and CK-MB[(470 ± 266) vs. (966 ± 263) U/L, P < 0.05] in Lac+Eda group were all significantly lower than in I/R group, apoptotic index [(10.51 ± 1.52)% vs. (15.00 ± 1.90) %, P < 0.05] and infarct area [(27.12 ± 5.55)% vs. (45.66 ± 10.81)%, P < 0.05] in Lac+Eda group were all significantly lower than those in I/R group. Pharmacological postconditioning with lactic acid and low dose edaravone could mimic the upper triggers of mechanical postconditioning and attenuate myocardial reperfusion injury through mitochondrial pathway.
