Could the inhibitor of DNA binding 2 and 4 play a role in white matter injury?

Rev Neurosci 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Department of Pediatrics, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610041, China.

White matter injury (WMI) prevents the normal development of myelination, leading to central nervous system myelination disorders and the production of chronic sequelae associated with WMI, such as chronic dyskinesia, cognitive impairment and cerebral palsy. This results in a large emotional and socioeconomic burden. Decreased myelination in preterm infant WMI is associated with the delayed development or destruction of oligodendrocyte (OL) lineage cells, particularly oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs).

Early detection of Y chromosome microdeletions in infertile men is helpful to guide clinical reproductive treatments in southwest of China.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(5):e14350

Department of Laboratory Medicine, West China Second University Hospital, and Key Laboratory of Obstetric & Gynecologic and Pediatric Diseases and Birth Defects of Ministry of Education.

The microdeletions of azoospermia factor (AZF) genes in Y chromosome are greatly associated with male infertility, which is also known as the second major genetic cause of spermatogenetic failure. Accumulating studies demonstrate that the different type of AZF microdeletions in patients reflect different clinical manifestations. Therefore, a better understanding of Y chromosome microdeletions might have broad implication for men health. Read More

Loss-of-function mutations in QRICH2 cause male infertility with multiple morphological abnormalities of the sperm flagella.

Nat Commun 2019 01 25;10(1):433. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology, Joint Laboratory of Reproductive Medicine (SCU-CUHK), Key Laboratory of Obstetric, Gynecologic and Pediatric Diseases and Birth Defects of Ministry of Education, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, 610041, Chengdu, China.

Aberrant sperm flagella impair sperm motility and cause male infertility, yet the genes which have been identified in multiple morphological abnormalities of the flagella (MMAF) can only explain the pathogenic mechanisms of MMAF in a small number of cases. Here, we identify and functionally characterize homozygous loss-of-function mutations of QRICH2 in two infertile males with MMAF from two consanguineous families. Remarkably, Qrich2 knock-out (KO) male mice constructed by CRISPR-Cas9 technology present MMAF phenotypes and sterility. Read More

Pregnancy Epigenetic Signature in T Helper 17 and T Regulatory Cells in Multiple Sclerosis.

Front Immunol 2018 8;9:3075. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, University of Turin, Turin, Italy.

Increasing evidence supports the anti-inflammatory role of estrogens in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), originating from the observation of reduction in relapse rates among women with MS during pregnancy, but the molecular mechanisms are still not completely understood. Using an integrative data analysis, we identified T helper (Th) 17 and T regulatory (Treg) cell-type-specific regulatory regions (CSR) regulated by estrogen receptor alpha (ERα). These CSRs were validated in polarized Th17 from healthy donors (HD) and in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, Th17 and Treg cells from relapsing remitting (RR) MS patients and HD during pregnancy.

Identification and antitumor activity of a novel inhibitor of the NIMA-related kinase NEK6.

Sci Rep 2018 Oct 30;8(1):16047. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

The NIMA (never in mitosis, gene A)-related kinase-6 (NEK6), which is implicated in cell cycle control and plays significant roles in tumorigenesis, is an attractive target for the development of novel anti-cancer drugs. Here we describe the discovery of a potent ATP site-directed inhibitor of NEK6 identified by virtual screening, adopting both structure- and ligand-based techniques. Using a homology-built model of NEK6 as well as the pharmacophoric features of known NEK6 inhibitors we identified novel binding scaffolds. Read More

Correlation between umbilical vein-to-artery delta pH and type of intrapartum hypoxia in a cohort of acidemic neonates: A retrospective analysis of CTG findings.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2018 Dec 3;231:25-29. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

Department of Medicine and Surgery, Unit of Surgical Sciences, Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Parma, Parma, Italy.

Introduction: Umbilical artery blood analysis is assumed to give a picture of the acid-base balance of the infant at birth and is considered the gold standard to diagnose neonatal acidemia at birth. The evaluation of umbilical vein pH has been suggested as an adjunct in order to optimize the understanding of the pathophysiology of the hypoxic events in labor. The objective of this study was to assess the correlation between the Delta pH (vein-to-artery) on the umbilical cord and the intrapartum cardiotocography (CTG) patterns in a selected cohort of acidemic neonates.
