    Objective To investigate the effects of MmMIF and PyMIF in vitro on the TLR4 expression, the Surface Molecules Expression Level and IL-12, TGF-β1 production of Spleen DC. Methods Recombinant plasmids were transformed into Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3), and expression of the recombinant PyMIF-His and MuMIF-His was induced by the addition of 0.5 mM IPTG to the bacterial culture and incubated for 4 h at 37°C. The fusion protein was purified using Nickel-affinity chromatography column and endotoxin was removed from the recombinant protein by Sep-Pak C8 column. CD4+DC /CD8+DC were collected from Spleen by CD4+DC /CD8+DC Isolation Kit. After 24 h of treatment with LPS, MmMIF or PyMIF, the TLR4 expression and the surface molecules expression level of CD4+DC and CD8+DC were determined by flow cytometry. IL-12, TGF-β1 production were detected by ELISA. Results The surface molecules expression level of DC didn't change. PyMIF treatment of CD8+DC down-regulated surface expression of TLR4 and IL-12 (from 433±48 pg/mL to 373±30 pg/mL, P<0.05) secretion decreased significantly after LPS stimulation. PyMIF treatment of CD8+DC increased TGF-β1 (from 136±4 pg/mL to 182±7 pg/mL, P<0.05) significantly. Conclusion PyMIF treatment exerts no effects on maturation of Spleen DC. CD8+DC modified by PyMIF down-regulated IL-12 significantly after LPS stimulation and immature CD8+DC modified by PyMIF up-regulated TGF-β1 secretion, thereby regulating the host immune response and conducive to P. yoelii survival.

    Objective To construct the Hax1 gene specific siRNA (sihax), to detect sihax mediated Hax1 gene repression, and to study the influence of Hax1 and Hax1 siRNAs on cell apoptosis. Method The oligo sequences of Hax1 siRNAs are selected, and the constructed eukaryotic expression vectors are transfected into 293 cells. The influence of Hax1 and its siRNAs on the cell apoptosis is evaluated by a number of approaches such as inverted fluorescence microscope, flow cytometric analysis, annexinV-EGFP/PI double staining, and standard RT-PCR. Results Hax1 specific siRNAs, pBS/U6-sihaxA and pBS/U6-sihaxB, have been successfully constructed. Analysis by RT-PCR and inverted fluorescence microscope demonstrate that the inhibitory effect induced by sihaxB is stronger than that of sihaxA. Over-expression of Hax1 significantly inhibits the early apoptosis of 293 cells. Inhibiting the endogenous Hax1 gene expression by by sihaxA and sihaxB markedly increases late apoptotic cells from 9.03?0.473% to10.8?0.513% (p<0.05) and 16.6?0.858% (p<0.01), respectively. In the same time, sihaxB also can reduce the early apoptotic cells from 37.3?0.5% to 32?1.77% (p<0.01). Conclusion The sequence conservation of the targeting site might influence the inhibitory effect induced by Hax1 siRNA. Hax1 gene might actively involve in the multiple regulatory processes related to cell apoptosis. This study provides some valuable information for the functional study on Hax1 gene in the future.

    Objective To check whether pyruvate kinase isoenzyme type M2 (PKM2) is the TCRγδ’s ligand. Methods By Western blot, the binding of OT3 peptide (the CDR3 region of the δ chain in TCRγδ) with PKM2 was analyzed; with Western blot and immunohistochemistry, the expression of PKM2 in tumor cells and tissues was observed; by flow cytometry and confocal method, PKM2’s location in the tumor cell was tested. The test of immobilized PKM2 expanding γδT cells in vitro and the detection of IFN-γ secreted by PKM2-stimulated γδT cells were used to observe the function of PKM2. Results 1. The binding of PKM2 with OT3 peptide and containing a large number of PKM2 in tumor cells hints that the catching of PKM2 by OT3 peptide from total protein of tumor cells extracts is reasonable and that finding OT3 binding proteins by this method is feasible; 2. PKM2 is widely expressed in tumor cells and tissues, but not expressed on the tumor cell membrane; 3. PKM2 neither expands γδT cells nor stimulates the secretion of IFN-γ from γδT cells in vitro. Conclusion PKM2 is not expressed on the surface of tumor cells, and can’t stimulate activation of γδT cells. PKM2 does not have properties of TCRγδ ligand.

    Objective To investigate the influence of PARG silencing on the tumor lymphangiogenesis. Methods Lentiviral-PARG-shRNA was transfected into mouse colon carcinoma CT26 cell line. The CT26 cells stably expressing PARG gene were established by puromycin selection. The expressions of PARG, PARP-1, NF-κB and VEGF-C protein were detected by Western blot analysis. BALB/c mice benign lymphangiomas in abdominal cavity were induced by injection of 0.2ml incomplete Freund’s adjuvant (IFA, 1:1 with PBS) and mechanically disrupted to obtain LECs. Expressions of VEGFR-3 and Podoplanin were analyzed by immunofluorescence cytochemistry. The capability of LECs to form lymphatic vessel-like structures was detected by a LEC-CT26 cells co-culture method. Results The expression levels of PARP-1, NF-κB, and VEGF-C were reduced in PARG-silencing CT26 cells (P<0.05). Benign lyphangiomas were successfully induced by emulsified IFA. The expressions of VEGFR-3 and Podoplanin were positive in isolated LECs. The lymphatic vessel-like structures in PARG-silencing CT26 cells were significantly less than that in the control group (P < 0.05).Conclusion These studies demonstrate that PARG silencing significantly reduces VEGF-C expression and suppresses the formation of lymphatic vessel-like structures. We therefore propose that PARG silencing has an antilymphangiogentic effect and probably prevent the metastatic dissemination by lymph system.

    Objective To investigate the possible hypolipidemic effects of total stilbene from Cajanus cajan L.(TSC) in rabbits fed with a high-lipid diet and the mechanism of regulation of cholesterol metabolism. Methods Thirty-six male rabbits were divided into six groups: control group, high lipid model group, TSC-treated with 200、100、50 mg/kg,and Xuezhikang treated group. The effects of TSC were investigated by monitoring serum and liver lipid profile in rabbits. THP-1 cells were induced to macrophages by PMA. The macrophages were labeled with [3H]cholesterol. These cells were divided into five groups, i.e, normal group, Cajanin high concentration group (CH), Cajanin mean concentration group (CM), Cajanin low concentration group (CL) and estradiol(E2) group. The cells were cultured for 24 hours in the serum-free RPMI 1640 medium containing 2mg/ml bovine serum albumin(BSA) in the presence or absence of Cajanin (30 μmol/L, 3 μmol/L, 0.3 μmol/L) or 17β-estradiol ( 1 μmol/L) . The macrophages were washed with PBS again and incubated in the serum-free RPMI 1640 medium containing apoA-I (10μg/ml) for 12 hours. The radioactivity of samples of both supernatants and cell lysates were determined using the liquid scintillation counter (Beckman, LS 6000SC, USA). Fractional cholesterol efflux was calculated, and the ABCA1 protein was quantified by Western blot. Results In TSC(200 mg/kg) group,the serum and hepatic TC were reduced by 35.36% and 35.97%(P<0.01);the TG contents of serum and liver were also lowered by 12.34%(P<0.05)and 41.32%(P<0.01). At the same time, serum LDL-C decreased by 29.07%(P<0.01) as compared with high lipid model group. The cholesterol efflux percentage from macrophage was increased by 55.39% and 24.97%(P<0.01) respectively in CH and CM group. The expression of the ABCA1 was significantly increased in CH group. Conclusions TSC has potential hypolipidemic effects,possibly via up-regulating the ABCA1 protein expression, subsequently resulting in increased macrophage cholesterol efflux and RCT.

    Objective To investigate the relationship between depressive disorder and inflammation markers in depressive rats induced by Forced Swimming Test (FST). Methods SD rats were randomly divided into controlling groups and modelling groups, Depression animal model was reproduced with FST in 21days. Modeling group included SS group (FST rats with 0.9% sodium cloride treated) and SI group (FST rats with Imipramine treated). all peripheral blood serum samples were respectively measured using enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) technique for concentration of MCP-1 and Immunoturbidimetric Assay for hsCRP. The expression of MCP-1 and NF-κB p65 in aorta tissue were observed by immunohistochemistry. Results There were high level of concentration of hsCRP and MCP-1 in peripheral blood serum samples and increased expression of MCP-1 and NF-κB p65 in aorta tissue of SS groups (P<0.05). SI groups had decreased the expression of inflammation markers in blood and aorta tissue. Conclusions Depressive disorder activate the inflammatory reaction with increased expression of NF-κB.

    Objective To evaluate gastric accommodation using 3D ultrasound imaging and Perfusion Nutrient Load test(P-NLT) by means of gastric volumes calculation and to verify validation of P-NLT in evaluation of gastric accommodation in healthy subjects. Methods 10 healthy subjects received P-NLT through a nasal-gastric tube with a constant rate of 50 mL/min (0.75 kcal/mL). Meanwhile 3DUS and 2DUS were used for imaging of PGV and PGA in different day, respectively. During the perfusion, visual analogue scale (VAS, 0~10) was used to evaluate satiety .The nutrient volume in different satiety scale and time consume was recorded during P-NLT. Then the measure values in 3DUS were compared with corresponding parameters in 2DUS. Results No difference was observed in the amount of nutrient liquid at minimal satiety and maximal satiety between the first and the second P-NLT study. PGV (p<0.01) and PGA (p<0.05) at maximal satiety measured by 3DUSwere both significantly correlated with MV. Furthermore, PGV at minimal satiety measured by 3DUS (p<0.05) was significantly correlated with TV. Significant differences were found in PGV (p<0.05) and PGA (p<0.01) at maximal satiety between 3DUS and 2DUS, and there was significant difference in PGA (p<0.01)at minimal satiety in two methods, too. But the curve estimated between MV and PGA or PGV at maximal satiety used by 2DUS was parallel with that in 3DUS. Conclusions 3DUS is superior to 2DUS for its accuracy and precision in volume estimation and more available for proximal gastric accommodation. P-NLT is a feasible and repeatable method in assessment of proximal gastric accommodation.

    Objective To evaluate the safety of small-capsulorhexis skills during phacoemulsification in senile intumescent cataract patients and the short-term surgery outcomes. Methords 143 senile intumescent cataract eyes (143 patients) were included in this study. They received phacoemulsification surgeries with a deliberately small continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis(CCC) (about 4mm) that was secondarily enlarged to about 6mm after intraocular lens had been inplanted. The rate of CCC completed and intraoperative and postoperative complications and short-term surgical outcomes had been statistically analyzed. Results CCC had been completed in 132(92.3%) intumescent cataract patients and secondly CCC was needed in 82 (57.3%) of them. Four failed cases suffered from breaking of the capsule and vitreous loss. Conculsion: Small continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis could help prevent unexpected radial tears of the capsulotomy during phacoemulsification in intumescent cataract patients.
