    Objective To observe the effect of ERK, P38 MAPK and JNK on the contractile response of vascular smooth muscle to norepinephrine (NE) after hypoxia, and explore its calcium sensitivity regulation mechanism of myosin light chain (MLC20) phosphorylation. Methods With hypoxia-treated vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) and hemorrhagic shock model of rats, the contractile response of VSMC to NE after hypoxia were observed by fluorometric method. At the same time, the MLC20 phosphorylation of superior mesenteric artery (SMA) in hemorrhagic shock rats was detected by Western blot, and the calcium sensitivityof SMA was assayed with isolated organ perfusion system. Results After hypoxia, the contractile response of VSMC to NE was significantly decreased. Meanwhile the level of MLC20 phosphorylation and calcium sensitivity of SMA after shock were decreased. Angiotensin II (AngII), with the effect of MAPK stimulation, could increase the contractile response of VSMC to NE after hypoxia, and increased the level of MLC20 phosphorylation and calcium sensitivity of SMA after shock. PD98059 (ERK inhibitor), SB203580 (P38 MAPK inhibitor) and SP600125 (JNK inhibitor) antagonized the effects of AngII-induced increase of the contractile response of VSMC after hypoxia. And ERK and P38 MAPK inhibitors also antagonized the effects of AngII-induced increased the level of MLC20 phosphorylation and calcium sensitivity of SMA after shock, while JNK inhibitor had no effect. Conclusions ERK, P38 MAPK and JNK were involved in the regulation of the contractile response of VSMC after hypoxia, and the mechanism of ERK and P38 MAPK was possibly through MLC20 phosphorylation dependent mechanism (calcium sensitivity regulation pathway), while JNK may be partially involved in regulating of the contractile response of VSMC by other mechanisms.

    Objective We observed the changes of pulmonary function parameters at different altitudes, so as to explore the correlation between AMS(Acute mountain sickness), mood, and pulmonary function. This data may help predict hypoxia susceptibility to select qualified expeditioners of Antarctic Dome-A at Icecap. Methods Pulmonary function, AMS, and moods were examined in 35 pre-selected healthy male Chinese members of the 25th and 26th expeditions to the Antarctic Kunlun station who were being screened for hypoxia susceptibility in Lhasa and Yangbajing. Statistical analysis was performed with SPSS 15.0. Results There was an increase in levels of tidal volume (VT), breathing frequency (BF), minute ventilation (MV), maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV), forced expiratory volume in one second per forced vital capacity (FEV/1FVC), peak expiratory flow (PEF), 25% expiratory flow (FEF25%), 50% expiratory flow (FEF50%), and mid-expiratory flow (MMEF75/25%)(p<0.05). There was a decrease in levels of vital capacity (VC), forced vital capacity (FVC), and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) in Lhasa and Yangbajing(p<0.05). According to AMSW scoring, we divided the team members into two groups, the AMS group and non-AMS group, and compared baseline pulmonary function parameters between them. Non-AMS group members had better baseline lung function than AMS group members. Conclusion The participants with better pulmonary function and psychological stability experienced a milder degree of AMS. Acute mountain sickness was positively correlated with SAS and negatively correlated with VC, FVC, FEV1, FEF25%, FEF50%, FEF75%, and MMEF75/25%.

    It has made great breakthrough in the filed of stem cell study recently that we can induce cell reprogramming to gain induced pluripotent stem(iPS) cell in vitro via adding transcription factors, such as OCT4 and SOX2 . Transcription factors (OCT4, SOX2 and Naong etc.) play an important role in starting the cell reprogramming, maintaining the pluripotency of iPS cells and deciding whether it differentiates. Researching the mechanism of action of these transcription factors is beneficial to the further explanation of the molecular mechanism of the cell reprogramming.

    Numerous cytokines and receptors activate the Janus kinases and signal transducer and activator of transcription signaling, which has been recognized as one of the important pathways in human solid tumors and blood malignancies. JAK-STAT pathway affects the expression and function of a variety of genes that are critical to cell survival, proliferation, angiogenesis, and immune evasion. Recently, targeting JAK-STAT signaling pathway is the hot spot for cancer therapy and a variety of JAK-STAT inhibitors have been identified that induce antitumor cell effects in vitro and in vivo.

    Growth factor receptor-bound 7(Grb7), a member of Grb7 protein family, has three distinct functional regions: a lot of proline amino acids exist in its N terminal, and the mesial district has such similar amino acids sequence as that of MIG-10 protein from Caenorhabditis elegans, and a SH2 domain in its C terminal. With these different domain, Grb7 protein plays distinct roles in cellular signaling pathway. And if we know more about the biological function acted by different domains of Grb7 protein, we will make advances in treating of patients with high expression of Grb7 protein.
