Linking health information seeking to patient-centered communication and healthy lifestyles: an exploratory study in China.

Health Educ Res 2021 Apr;36(2):248-260

Department of Communications and New Media, National University of Singapore, Blk AS6, 11 Computing Drive, Singapore 117416, Singapore.

The existing research routinely measures the influence of health information-seeking behavior (HISB) as a whole, which does not capture the complexity and diversity of media channel usage in HISB. The influence of HISB on patient's lifestyle behaviors and the mediation process through patient-centered communication (PCC) in medical encounters has been understudied in previous literature. Drawing from Street's three-stage model, this study conducted a secondary analysis of the Health Information National Trends Survey in China to investigate the influences of HISB across five different media outlets (e.

Multiple Argonaute family genes contribute to the siRNA-mediated RNAi pathway in Locusta migratoria.

Pestic Biochem Physiol 2020 Nov 12;170:104700. Epub 2020 Sep 12.

Institute of Applied Biology, Shanxi University, Taiyuan, Shanxi 030006, China. Electronic address:

Argonautes (Ago) are important core proteins in RNA interference (RNAi) pathways of eukaryotic cells. Generally, it is thought that Ago1, Ago2 and Ago3 are involved in the miRNA (microRNA), siRNA (small interfering RNA) and piRNA (Piwi-interacting RNA)-mediated RNAi pathways, respectively. As a main component of the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), Ago2 plays an indispensable role in using siRNA to recognize and cut target messenger RNAs resulting in suppression of transcript levels, but the contributions of Ago1 and Ago3 to the siRNA-mediated RNAi pathway remain to be explored in many insect species.

The Role of Gene Elongation in the Evolution of Histidine Biosynthetic Genes.

Microorganisms 2020 May 13;8(5). Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Biology, University of Florence, 50019 Sesto Fiorentino, Italy.

Gene elongation is a molecular mechanism consisting of an in-tandem duplication of a gene and divergence and fusion of the two copies, resulting in a gene constituted by two divergent paralogous modules. The aim of this work was to evaluate the importance of gene elongation in the evolution of histidine biosynthetic genes and to propose a possible evolutionary model for some of them. Concerning the genes and , which code for two homologous (β/α)-barrels, it has been proposed that the two extant genes could be the result of a cascade of gene elongation/domain shuffling events starting from an ancestor gene coding for just one (β/α) module.

Media Complementarity and Health Information Acquisition: A Cross-sectional Analysis of the 2017 HINTS-China Survey.

J Health Commun 2020 04 7;25(4):291-300. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

School of Media and Communication, Shenzhen University , Shenzhen, China.

Given the myriad of media channels and available health information, it is important to investigate how health consumers navigate and choose from multiple media channels in seeking health information and their preferences among different media sources. Previous research has routinely measured health information-seeking behavior (HISB), especially online health information seeking as a whole, which does not capture the complexity and diversity of media channels used in HISB. On the basis of the channel complementarity theory, this study further classified new media into search engines, social media, and mobile health applications. Read More

PA0335, a Gene Encoding Histidinol Phosphate Phosphatase, Mediates Histidine Auxotrophy in .

Appl Environ Microbiol 2020 02 18;86(5). Epub 2020 Feb 18.

Key Laboratory of Resources Biology and Biotechnology in Western China, Ministry of Education, Faculty of Life Sciences, Northwest University, Xi'an, China

The biosynthesis of histidine, a proteinogenic amino acid, has been extensively studied due to its importance in bacterial growth and survival. Histidinol-phosphate phosphatase (Hol-Pase), which is responsible for the penultimate step of histidine biosynthesis, is generally the last enzyme to be characterized in many bacteria because its origin and evolution are more complex compared to other enzymes in histidine biosynthesis. However, none of the enzymes in histidine biosynthesis, including Hol-Pase, have been characterized in , which is an important opportunistic Gram-negative pathogen that can cause serious human infections.

HisB as novel selection marker for gene targeting approaches in Aspergillus niger.

BMC Microbiol 2017 03 8;17(1):57. Epub 2017 Mar 8.

Institute of Biotechnology, Department of Applied and Molecular Microbiology, Technische Universität Berlin, Gustav-Meyer-Allee 25, 13355, Berlin, Germany.

Background: For Aspergillus niger, a broad set of auxotrophic and dominant resistance markers is available. However, only few offer targeted modification of a gene of interest into or at a genomic locus of choice, which hampers functional genomics studies. We thus aimed to extend the available set by generating a histidine auxotrophic strain with a characterized hisB locus for targeted gene integration and deletion in A. Read More

Social inequalities in health information seeking among young adults in Montreal.

Health Promot Int 2018 Jun;33(3):390-399

Institut de recherche en santé publique de l'Université de Montréal (IRSPUM), Canada.

Over their lifecourse, young adults develop different skills and preferences in relationship to the information sources they seek when having questions about health. Health information seeking behaviour (HISB) includes multiple, unequally accessed sources; yet most studies have focused on single sources and did not examine HISB's association with social inequalities. This study explores 'multiple-source' profiles and their association with socioeconomic characteristics. Read More
