Validation of hub genes in acute pancreatitis

Introduction Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common disease found in clinics, and requires urgent Hospital admission. The incidence of AP is increasing in recent years worldwide.1 The patients with AP increased from 1,727,789.3 to 2,814,972.3 between 1990 and 2019 in 204 countries and territories.2 Meanwhile, nearly 20% of AP patients…

Fatty infiltration after rotator cuff tear

Introduction Rotator cuff tear (RCT) is a common shoulder disorder causing shoulder pain and disability. The prevalence of full-thickness RCT is 20.7% in the general population, and increased with age.1 Rotator cuff play essential roles in shoulder function and the treatment of proximal humeral fractures.2,3 It is important to repair…

Requirement of Xk and Vps13a for the P2X7-mediated phospholipid scrambling and cell lysis in mouse T cells

Significance The extracellular concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) reaches several hundred micromoles in the inflamed tissues or tumor environment. A high concentration of ATP activates P2X7, a purinergic receptor, and induces the formation of a nonselective cation channel, accompanied by reversible phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) exposure, leading to cell lysis. Here, we…

The direction of your DNA may be as important as which parent it came from

Fig. 1: H19 gene expression was derepressed on the paternally inherited inverted-ICR allele in fetal livers but not in placentas. a Breeding scheme. In order to distinguish parental origin of the alleles by using SNPs between inbred mouse strains, inverted-ICR heterozygous male mice (WT/INV; C57BL/6J [B6] background) were mated with…

Phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein PINLYP regulates type I interferon innate immunity

Significance Interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral responses serve as the first line of the host innate immune defense against viral infection. Here we identify a previously uncharacterized protein designated phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein (PINLYP), which is essential for embryonic development and plays an important role in type I IFN…

Frontiers | The cGAS-STING Pathway: A Promising Immunotherapy Target

Introduction Invaded by exogenous or endogenous pathogens, the host immune system will be activated accordingly to resist harm and maintain homeostasis, which includes innate immunity and adaptive immunity. As the first line of host immune defense, innate immunity plays a critical role in recognizing extracellular and intracellular pathogens (1, 2)….

MicroRNA-181a Deficiency Results in Transcriptome-Wide Cell-Specific Changes in The Kidney and Increases Blood Pressure

The micro ribonucleic acid (microRNA) [MiR-181a] is downregulated in the kidneys of rodents and patients suffering from high blood pressure (BP). The miR-181a is a posttranslational inhibitor of renin articulation in vitro, yet pleiotropic systems by which miR-181a may impact BP are unclear. Whether cancellation of miR-181a/b-1 in vivo changes…

Single-cell DNA and RNA sequencing reveals the dynamics of intra-tumor heterogeneity in a colorectal cancer model | BMC Biology

Organoid culture of small intestinal cells and lentiviral transduction C57BL/6J mice and BALB/cAnu/nu immune-deficient nude mice were purchased from CLEA Japan (Tokyo, Japan). The small intestine was harvested from wild-type male C57BL/6J mice at 3–5 weeks of age (Additional file 1: Figure S9A). Crypts were purified and dissociated into single cells,…

Characterization and expression of DNA sequences encoding the growth hormone gene in African Pygmy Mouse (Mus minutoides)

Abstract We determined the nucleotide sequence of the growth hormone (Gh) gene in Mus minutoides, one of the smallest mammals, where was predicted to be distinct in the functional regions between M. minutoides and Mus musculus. To investigate the evolutionary characteristics of Gh in M. minutoides, we constructed a phylogenetic…

MYO10 drives genomic instability and inflammation in cancer

INTRODUCTION Genomic instability often refers to the existence of a variety of DNA alterations, ranging from single nucleotide changes (such as base substitution, deletion, and insertion) to chromosomal rearrangements (e.g., gain or loss of a segment or the whole chromosome) (1). Loss of genome stability can lead to early onset…
