Conformational changes in three-dimensional chromatin structure in after phytoplasma infection.

Phytopathology 2021 Jun 14. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Beijing, China;

Higher-order chromatin structures play important roles in regulating multiple biological processes, growth and development, biotic and abiotic stress response. However, little is known about three-dimensional chromatin structures in Paulownia, or about whole-genome chromatin conformational changes that occur in response to Paulownia witches' broom (PaWB) disease.

Gene Expression Profiles of Circular RNAs and MicroRNAs in Chronic Rhinosinusitis With Nasal Polyps.

Front Mol Biosci 2021 28;8:643504. Epub 2021 May 28.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang, China.

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is often classified primarily on the basis of the absence or presence of nasal polyps (NPs), that is, as CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) or CRS without nasal polyps (CRSsNP). Additionally, according to the percentage of eosinophils, CRSwNP can be further divided into eosinophilic CRSwNP (ECRSwNP) and non-ECRSwNP. CRSwNP is a significant public health problem with a considerable socioeconomic burden. Read More

Early prediction of COVID-19 severity using extracellular vesicle COPB2.

J Extracell Vesicles 2021 Jun 2;10(8):e12092. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine Institute of Medical Science Tokyo Medical University Tokyo Japan.

The clinical manifestations of COVID-19 vary broadly, ranging from asymptomatic infection to acute respiratory failure and death. But the predictive biomarkers for characterizing the variability are still lacking. Since emerging evidence indicates that extracellular vesicles (EVs) and extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) are functionally involved in a number of pathological processes, we hypothesize that these extracellular components may be key determinants and/or predictors of COVID-19 severity.

IL-10 and TGF-β cytokines decrease immune activation during normothermic ex vivo machine perfusion of the rat liver.

Liver Transpl 2021 Jun 12. Epub 2021 Jun 12.

Department of Surgery, Division of Transplantation, University of Wisconsin, School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.

Background: Normothermic ex vivo liver perfusion (NEVLP) is a novel system for organ preservation which may improve over static cold storage (CS) clinically and offers the chance for graft modification prior to transplantation. Although recent studies have shown the presence of inflammatory molecules during perfusion, none have yet shown the effects of NEVLP on liver-resident immune cell activation. We investigated the effects of NEVLP on liver-resident immune cell activation and assessed the ability of anti-inflammatory cytokines IL-10 and TGF-β to improve organ function and reduce immune activation during perfusion.

Likelihood-based tests for detecting circadian rhythmicity and differential circadian patterns in transcriptomic applications.

Brief Bioinform 2021 Jun 12. Epub 2021 Jun 12.

Department of Biostatistics at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, 32608, USA.

Circadian rhythmicity in transcriptomic profiles has been shown in many physiological processes, and the disruption of circadian patterns has been found to associate with several diseases. In this paper, we developed a series of likelihood-based methods to detect (i) circadian rhythmicity (denoted as LR_rhythmicity) and (ii) differential circadian patterns comparing two experimental conditions (denoted as LR_diff). In terms of circadian rhythmicity detection, we demonstrated that our proposed LR_rhythmicity could better control the type I error rate compared to existing methods under a wide variety of simulation settings.

Human induced pluripotent stem cell derived hepatocytes provide insights on parenteral nutrition associated cholestasis in the immature liver.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 11;11(1):12386. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Pediatrics, Medical College of Wisconsin, 999 N. 92 Street, PO Box 1997, Milwaukee, WI, 53226, USA.

Parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis (PNAC) significantly limits the safety of intravenous parenteral nutrition (PN). Critically ill infants are highly vulnerable to PNAC-related morbidity and mortality, however the impact of hepatic immaturity on PNAC is poorly understood. We examined developmental differences between fetal/infant and adult livers, and used human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived hepatocyte-like cells (iHLC) to gain insights into the contribution of development to altered sterol metabolism and PNAC.

Efficient representations of tumor diversity with paired DNA-RNA aberrations.

PLoS Comput Biol 2021 Jun 11;17(6):e1008944. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Oncology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.

Cancer cells display massive dysregulation of key regulatory pathways due to now well-catalogued mutations and other DNA-related aberrations. Moreover, enormous heterogeneity has been commonly observed in the identity, frequency and location of these aberrations across individuals with the same cancer type or subtype, and this variation naturally propagates to the transcriptome, resulting in myriad types of dysregulated gene expression programs. Many have argued that a more integrative and quantitative analysis of heterogeneity of DNA and RNA molecular profiles may be necessary for designing more systematic explorations of alternative therapies and improving predictive accuracy.

Integrating miRNA and mRNA Profiling to Assess the Potential miRNA-mRNA Modules Linked With Testicular Immune Homeostasis in Sheep.

Front Vet Sci 2021 25;8:647153. Epub 2021 May 25.

College of Animal Science and Technology, Gansu Agricultural University, Lanzhou, China.

Beyond its well-known role in spermatogenesis and androgen production, mammalian testes are increasingly recognized as an immune-privileged organ for protecting autoantigenic germ cells, especially meiotic and postmeiotic germ cells, from systemic immune responses. Despite its importance, the molecular mechanisms underlying this regulation in mammals, including sheep, are far from known. In this study, we searched for the genes associated with testicular immune privilege and assessed their possible modulating mechanisms by analyzing systematic profiling of mRNAs and miRNAs on testicular tissues derived from prepubertal and postpubertal Tibetan sheep acquired by RNA sequencing.

Gene Expression Profile of the Human Colorectal Carcinoma LoVo Cells Treated With Sporamin and Thapsigargin.

Front Oncol 2021 25;11:621462. Epub 2021 May 25.

School of Public Health, Capital Medical University (CMU), Beijing, China.

Sporamin, a proteinase inhibitor isolated from the sweet potato (), has shown promising anticancer effect against colorectal cancer (CRC) and but its mechanisms of action are poorly understood. In the present study, high throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) technology was applied to explore the transcriptomic changes induced by sporamin in the presence of thapsigargin (TG), a non-12-O-tetradecanolphorbol-13-acetate type cancer promoter, in the LoVo human CRC cells. Cellular total RNA was extracted from the cells after they were treated with vehicle (CTL), 1 μM of thapsigargin (TG), or 1 μM of TG plus 30 μM of sporamin (TGSP) for 24 h. Read More

Identifying molecular targets for reverse aging using integrated network analysis of transcriptomic and epigenomic changes during aging.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 10;11(1):12317. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Bio and Brain Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, 34141, Republic of Korea.

Aging is associated with widespread physiological changes, including skeletal muscle weakening, neuron system degeneration, hair loss, and skin wrinkling. Previous studies have identified numerous molecular biomarkers involved in these changes, but their regulatory mechanisms and functional repercussions remain elusive. In this study, we conducted next-generation sequencing of DNA methylation and RNA sequencing of blood samples from 51 healthy adults between 20 and 74 years of age and identified aging-related epigenetic and transcriptomic biomarkers.
