- FBXW7-loss sensitizes cells to ATR inhibition through induced mitotic catastrophe Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
FBXW7 is a commonly mutated tumor suppressor gene that functions to regulate numerous oncogenes involved in cell cycle regulation. Genome-wide CRISPR fitness screens identified a signature of DNA repair and DNA damage response genes as required for the growth of FBXW7-knockout cells. Guided by these findings, we show that FBXW7 mutant cells have high levels of replication stress, which results in a genotype-specific vulnerability to inhibition of the ATR signaling pathway, as these mutant cells...
- Lipoprotein lipids and apolipoproteins in primary immune thrombocytopenia: Results from a clinical characteristics and causal relationship verification, potential drug target identification by Mendelian randomization analyses Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an acquired autoimmune disease. Cellular and systemic lipid metabolism plays a significant role in the regulation of immune cell activities. However, the role of lipoprotein lipids and apolipoproteins in ITP remains elusive. The automatic biochemistry analyser was used to measure the levels of serum total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), apolipoprotein A-I...
- DDX5 enhances HIF-1 activity by promoting the interaction of HIF-1α with HIF-1β and recruiting the resulting heterodimer to its target gene loci Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Cancer cells acquire malignant characteristics and therapy resistance by employing the hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1)-dependent adaptive response to hypoxic microenvironment in solid tumors. Since the underlying molecular mechanisms remain unclear, difficulties are associated with establishing effective therapeutic strategies. We herein identified DEAD-box helicase 5 (DDX5) as a novel activator of HIF-1 and found that it enhanced the heterodimer formation of HIF-1α and HIF-1β and facilitated...

CONCLUSION: Weiwei granules can effectively improve Hp-positive CAG patients and reduce the expression levels of TLR4, NF-κB, and COX-2.
- Increased FH-Risk-Score and Diabetes Are Cardiovascular Risk Equivalents in Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSIONS: This study strongly suggests that the observed risk of FH patients with diabetes, history of ASCVD, and FH-Risk-Score >20% is as high or higher than non-FH individuals with a history of ASCVD. More aggressive management should be recommended for these patients.
- Thrombosis in the Coronary Microvasculature Impairs Cardiac Relaxation and Induces Diastolic Dysfunction Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSIONS: Altogether, these results demonstrate that microvessel thrombosis may participate in the pathophysiology of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
- Type 1 diabetes - What's new in prevention and therapeutic strategies? Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disorder, and insulin deficiency is the result of b-cell dysfunction. Treatment of type 1 diabetes requires constant parenteral insulin administration, which can be very burdensome for the patient. Meticulous use of insulin therapy does not protect the patient against complications. Hence, the search for other methods of treatment as well as ways of preventing the onset of diabetes has been ongoing for a long time. The main obstacle in the implementation of...

- Hypoxia A Typical Target in Human Lung Cancer Therapy Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Lung cancer (LC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death globally. Comprehensive knowledge of the cellular and molecular etiology of LC is perilous for the development of active treatment approaches. Hypoxia in cancer is linked with malignancy, and its phenotype is implicated in the hypoxic reaction, which is being studied as a prospective cancer treatment target. The hypervascularization of the tumor is the main feature of human LC, and hypoxia is a major stimulator of neo-angiogenesis. It...
- An Updated Review on Molecular Biomarkers in Diagnosis and Therapy of Colorectal Cancer Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancer types worldwide. Since colorectal cancer takes time to develop, its incidence and mortality can be treated effectively if it is detected in its early stages. As a result, non-invasive or invasive biomarkers play an essential role in the early diagnosis of colorectal cancer. Many experimental studies have been carried out to assess genetic, epigenetic, or protein markers in feces, serum, and tissue. It may be possible to find biomarkers that will...

- The effect of TLR3 priming conditions on MSC immunosuppressive properties Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSIONS: TLR3 activation in MSCs is dependent on exposure time and poly(I:C) concentration. The maximum expression of immunosuppressive molecules was observed with 10 µg/mL poly(I:C) for 3-h preconditioning. This priming protocol for MSCs enhances the immunosuppressive effects of prMSCs on T cells.
- Visualization of microRNA therapy in cancers delivered by small extracellular vesicles Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
MicroRNA (miRNA) delivery by extracellular vesicles (EVs) has recently inspired tremendous developments in cancer treatments. However, hybridization between miRNA and its target mRNA is still difficult to be imaged in vivo to assess the therapeutic effects in time. Herein we design a nano-scale fluorescent "off-on" complex encapsulated by small extracellular vesicles (sEVs) for real-time visualization and evaluation of gene therapy efficiency in human gastric cancer cells and murine xenograft...
