The transcription factor HIF-1α mediates plasticity of NKp46+ innate lymphoid cells in the gut.

J Exp Med 2022 Feb 13;219(2). Epub 2022 Jan 13.

Institute of Anatomy, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Gut innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) show remarkable phenotypic diversity, yet microenvironmental factors that drive this plasticity are incompletely understood. The balance between NKp46+, IL-22-producing, group 3 ILCs (ILC3s) and interferon (IFN)-γ-producing group 1 ILCs (ILC1s) contributes to gut homeostasis. The gut mucosa is characterized by physiological hypoxia, and adaptation to low oxygen is mediated by hypoxia-inducible transcription factors (HIFs). Read More

Oil-Infused Silicone Prevents Zebra Mussel Adhesion.

ACS Appl Bio Mater 2019 Dec 3;2(12):5841-5847. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto, 164 College Street, Room 407, Toronto, ON M5S 3G9, Canada.

The remarkable underwater adhesion capacity of the invasive freshwater mussel species (zebra mussel) causes extensive damage each year. The adhesive interface between the substrate surface and the mussels' adhesive plaques plays a key role in zebra mussel biofouling. Silicone-oil-infused polydimethylsiloxane (iPDMS), an omniphobic material in the class of liquid-infused slippery surfaces, has been shown to develop a uniform, microscale, antifouling surface oil layer, which we hypothesized would be effective against zebra mussel fouling.

Size-Dependent Plasmonic Resonance Scattering Characteristics of Gold Nanorods for Highly Sensitive Detection of microRNA-27a.

ACS Appl Bio Mater 2021 Apr 11;4(4):3469-3475. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

Key Laboratory of Luminescence Analysis and Molecular Sensing (Southwest University), Ministry of Education, College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Southwest University, Chongqing 400715, P. R. China.

MicroRNAs, as one kind of significant biomarkers, play indispensable roles in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. Yet, owing to low expression and high sequence homology, high sensitivity and specificity for microRNA detection are greatly challenging. Herein, a sensitive sensing platform with high specificity was developed for microRNA-27a (miRNA-27a) based on the miRNA-27a-triggered chemical etching of gold nanorods to a smaller size, which was accompanied by a significant blue shift and a large decrease of intensity in the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) scattering and remarkable color variability from red to green.

ACS Appl Bio Mater 2021 May 12;4(5):4328-4344. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Instability and Soft Patterning Laboratory, Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, Kharagpur, West Bengal 721302, India.

We report a significant improvement of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells' (ADMSCs) biocompatibility and proliferation on hierarchically patterned porous honey-incorporated silk fibroin scaffolds fabricated using a combination of soft lithography and freeze-drying techniques. Parametric variations show enhanced surface roughness, swelling, and degradation rate with good pore interconnectivity, porosity, and mechanical strength for soft-lithographically fabricated biomimetic microdome arrays on the 2% honey silk fibroin scaffold (PHSF2) as compared to its other variants, which eventually made PHSF2 more comparable to the native environment required for stem cell adhesion and proliferation. PHSF2 also exhibits sustained honey release with remarkable antibacterial efficacy against methicillin-resistant (MRSA). Read More

Multi- and transgenerational biochemical effects of low-dose exposure to bisphenol A and 4-nonylphenol on testicular interstitial (Leydig) cells.

Environ Toxicol 2022 Jan 10. Epub 2022 Jan 10.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Xiangyang No.1 People's Hospital, Hubei University of Medicine, Xiangyang, China.

Bisphenol A (BPA) and 4-nonylphenol (NP) are well-known endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that have been proven to affect Leydig cell (LC) functions and testosterone production, but whether BPA and NP have multi- and transgenerational biochemical effects on Leydig cells (LCs) is unknown. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique that enables label-free and non-destructive analysis of the tissue specimen. Herein we employed FTIR coupled with chemometrics analysis to identify biomolecular changes in testicular interstitial (Leydig) cells of rats after chronic exposure to low doses of BPA and NP.

(Southwest University), Chongqing Science and Technology Bureau, College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Southwest University, Chongqing, 400715, PR China. Electronic address:

MicroRNAs involved in tumor-related tissues at abnormal expression level present tremendous potential in the early diagnosis of cancers. However, their intrinsic shortcomings, for instance, low abundance and high sequence homology, make it challengeable to quantify them with high sensitivity and selectivity. Herein, a highly sensitive platform with great specificity was developed for microRNA-21 based on the produced-I triggered chemical etching of gold nanorods to a smaller size, resulting in a significant blue shift and a great intensity decrease in the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) scattering.

Clinic for Poultry and Fish Medicine, Department for Farm Animals and Veterinary Public Health, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Veterinaerplatz 1, Vienna, 1210, Austria.

Cutaneous fowlpox is a disease of chickens and turkeys caused by the Fowlpox virus (FWPV), characterized by the development of proliferative lesions and scabs on unfeathered areas. FWPVs regularly carry an integrated, active copy of the reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) and it has been hypothesized that such FWPVs are more problematic in the field. Extensive outbreaks are usually observed in tropical and sub-tropical climates, where biting insects are more difficult to control. Read More
