    This paper outlines briefly the role of nuclear medicine in life sciences and health care. Molecular imaging by using isotopic tracers can noninvasively visualize the chemistry or hidden process in the cells and tissues inside the body, obtaining "functional" images to provide early information of any disease and revealing the secrets of life. The vitality of nuclear medicine is its ability to translate bench into new clinical application that can benefit the patients. Although nuclear medicine community in China has made significant achievement with a great effort since 1950s, there are many obstacles to future development. Recommended measures are proposed here in an attempt to solve our existing problems.

    Objective To investigate whether the HBV replication mouse model can be used for selection of anti-HBV drugs. Methods HBV replication-competent plasmid pHBV4.1 was transferred into male BALB/C mice by using hydrodynamics-based in vivo transfection. The mice were matched by body weigh, age and serum levels of Hepatitis B e antigen(HBeAg) and were devided into experiment group and control group (4 mice in each group) 24 h after transfection and were treated orally with entecavir and normal saline for three times at intervals of twenty four hours, respectively. HBV mRNA and HBV DNA replication intermediates in liver were analyzed by Northern and Southern Blot Hybridization, respectively. The serum HBsAg and HBeAg were detected by enzyme linked immunosorbentassay (ELISA). Results The results of two indepent experiments showed that compared with the control animals, HBV DNA replicative intermediates dramatically decreased in the liver from the experiment mice. The levels of HBV mRNA from liver and the serum HBsAg and HBeAg , however, were not obviously different. Conclusions The inhibition effect of entecavir on HBV was detected in the HBV replication mice, suggesting that the HBV replication mouse model can be used for selection of anti-HBV drugs.

    Objective To investigate whether sulforaphane (SF) protects motor neurons via inducing phase Ⅱ enzymes. Methods The SD rat pups spinal cord organotypic cultures were divided into three groups at random: control, 100?mol/L THA group, 10?mol/L SF plus 100?mol/L THA group. The number of motor neurons was assessed by immunohistochemistry, and the expression of phase Ⅱ enzymes were assayed with western blot. Results At the end of 3 weeks, the motor neurons number in the group treated with THA was less than the control group (P<0.05, n=10-15). However, the motor neurons number in the group treated with SF plus THA was more than group treated with THA at the end of 3 weeks (P<0.05, n=10-15). Meanwhile, the phase Ⅱ enzymes (NQO-1 and HO-1) in the group treated with SF plus THA expressed more than group treated with THA only (P<0.05, n=3). Conclusions SF could prevent motor neuron death caused by THA toxicity via inducing the expression of phase Ⅱ enzymes.

    Objective To determine whether calcineurin-NFAT pathway is involved in the regulation of VSMCs proliferation induced by catecholamines. Methods Primary VSMCs from rat aorta were used as the experimental model. Proliferation of VSMCs were measured by MTT assay and cell count. Calcineurin protein and its activity were assayed using immunoblotting and free inorganic phosphate content analysis respectively. Localization of NFATc1 was detected by immunofluorescence staining. Results Phenylephrine (PE, an α1-adrenoceptor agonist) increased VSMCs proliferation. Prazosin (an α1-adrenoceptor antagonist), cyclosporin A (CsA, an inhibitor of calcineurin) and chelerythrine (an inhibitor of PKC) decreased PE-induced absorbance and cell number. Timolol (β-adrenoceptor antagonist) has no effect on absorbance and cell number induced by PE. Additional treatment with CsA further inhibited PE-induced absorbance and cell number compared with the chelerythrine pretreatment group. CsA and chelerythrine alone had no significant effect on either absorbance or cell number. CsA decresed PE-induced calcineurin level and its activity. NFATc1 was translocated from cytoplasm to nucleus upon treatment with PE. This translocation was reversed by CsA. Conclusions CsA partially inhibits PE-induced VSMCs proliferation via inhibiting calcineurin activity and NFATc1 nuclear translocation. Calcineurin-NFATc1 pathway is involved in hyperplastic growth of VSMCs induced by catecholamines.

    Objective To determine whether atrial tissue shows alterations in electrophysiological proterties and in the expression and distribution of Cx43 in dogs with hyperthyroidism induced by Levothyroxine. Methods Sixteen mongrel canines of either sex weighing 12-17kg were randomized into control group (n=6) and L-thy group (n=10). Levothyroxin (80μg/kg) was administered daily by intraperitoneal injection for 8 months to all dogs in the L-thy group. Every 2 months atrial effective refractory period (AERP) was measured in both groups. Atrial tissues were collected at the 8th month. The expression of Cx43 in atria was evaluated with western blot analysis. Cx43 in atria was located by immunofluorescence and detected with Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope. Results compared with the control group, AERP of the L-thy group in the 4th, 6th and 8th month was significantly shorter (P<0.05). Levothyroxine significantly reduced the expression of Cx43 in left and right atrial (P<0.01), and the heterogeneous Cx43 down-regulation between left and right atria in the L-thy group was significant (P<0.05). Connexin43 located at the intercalated disc of atrial myocardium in the L-thy group was significantly reduced (P<0.01). Conclusions Thyroid hormone leads to atrial electrical remodeling and gap junction remodeling, involving heterogeneous reduction in Cx43 expression and disturbance in the distribution of Cx43. These changes are components of a variety of remodeling processes necessary, although not causative, for AF to become sustained.

    Vimentin is an important member of intermediate filament family in mesenchymal cells. Recently, several researches revealed that the changes of vimentin expression and distribution played important roles in regulating cell growth, migration, apoptosis, signaling, gene expression, as well as cellular integrity. Thus, vimemtin had relationships with some diseases, and this article summarized the progress in this field.

    Objective: Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii isolates from 6 different cities in our country using multilocus microsatellite typing (MLMT) method were genotyped to explore the genotypic distribution of the variety. Methods: The DNA of forty-three isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii which have been identified was extracted. The DNA fragments covering microsatellite loci CNG1, CNG2 and CNG3 were amplified using PCR, and then were sequenced. The numbers of each motif repeat in 3 microsatellite regions ("TA" repeats for CNG1, "GA" repeats for CNG2, and "CAT" repeats for CNG3) were calculated. According to the repeat numbers of these motif , the MLMT types of 43 strains of Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii were determined. Results:Out of 43 isolates,the percentage of MLMT-17 was 83.72%. In the clinical and environmental isolates, the percentages of MLMT-17 were 86.67% and 70% , respectively. Two new genotypes MLMT-39 and -40 were found. Conclusion: In China , MLMT-17 of Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii is prevalent in both clinical and environmental strains, implying the most clinical strains which resulted in cryptococcosis originated from indigenous environmental strains.
