    Objective To study the axon abnormalities and possible underlying mechanisms on APPswe/PS1dE9 double-transgenic mice, as the model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Methods Taking advantage of RT-qPCR, the expression levels of netrin (netrin-1 and netrin-3) and DCC (DCC1 and DCC2) are determined in wild type mice and APPswe/PS1dE9 double-transgenic mice separately, while the changes of axon length in hippocampus neurons are calculated using immunocytofluorescence. Results Compared with wild type mice, the expression levels of netrin-1 (P<0.001), DCC1 and DCC2 (P<0.01) are all up regulated in APPswe/PS1dE9 double-transgenic mice. At the same time, the double transgenic mice show decrease in axon length in hippocampus neurons. Conclusions Abnormalities in axon are found in connection with AD, and interactions in netrin-1 and DCC can be responsible for this relationship.

    【ABSTRACT】: Objective: To explore the protective effect of Marrow Stem Cells (MSCs) derived exosomes on PC12 injured by hydrogen peroxide in rats after intervention by BDNF. Methods: Rat MSCs were extracted by whole bone marrow adherent culture methods. The supernatant of cells was collected by adding BDNF into part of the medium for P3 generation and supernatant was also collected without BDNF intervention. Exosomes were isolated and purified by ultracentrifugation, and their morphology was observed and identified under transmission electron microscopy. Western blotting was used to verified the surface marker proteins CD9 and CD63. PC12 cells were divided into control group, simple injured group, MSCs exosome group, BDNF-MSCs exosome group. PBS was added to the medium of the first two groups, and corresponding exosomes (exosome protein concentration 50 microns /ml) were added to the latter two groups to pretreat them for 12h, and the last 3 groups were established cell damage models of oxidative stress by H2O2 on PC12. 10h later cell viability was detected by CCK8 method, ROS activity and SOD value were detected by kit, and Bcl-2 and Bax protein expression were detected by Western Blotting. Result: CD90 expression on the cell surface of P3 generation MSCs was positive. Exosomes were successfully extracted , a large number of irregular spheres or saucer-shaped vesicles with diameters of 40-100 nm were observed under transmission electron microscopy. The membranes were clear and relatively complete, and CD9 and CD63 proteins were positively expressed by Western Blot. Compared with simple injured group and MSCs exosome group, BDNF-MSCs exosome group had the highest cell viability, the highest SOD activity, the lowest ROS and the highest bcl-2 /Bax value. Conclusion: The protective effect of MSCs-derived exosomes after intervention by BDNF on oxidative stress injury induced by H2O2 on PC12 was better than that of MSCs-derived exosomes.

    Objective To study the molecular mechanism of protective effects of soybean isoflavones (SI) on cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. Methods Rats were randomly divided into sham operation group (sham), ischemia-reperfusion group (I/R), soybean isoflavones (SI) intervention group(50, 100 and 200 mg/kg) . 2,3,5-triphenylte-trazolium chloride (TTC) staining method was used to detect the cerebral infarction volume. HE staining was used to detect the pathological changes of brain tissues. The activity of superoxide dismutase SOD and the contents of IL-6, TNF-α, cAMP were measured by ELISA. Western blot was used to detect the level of p-ERK1/2. Results The I/R group had obvious infarct foci compared with the sham group (p<0.05), but the cerebral infarct volume significantly decreased after SI intervention(100 and 200 mg/kg) (p<0.05), respectively. In model group, cell gap was widened and nucleus became pyknosis. After the intervention of SI group, the pathological changes of cells were improved. Compared with the sham group, the activity of SOD and the content of cAMP in I/R group were significantly reduced, but after SI intervention (100 and 200 mg/kg), the activity of SOD and the content of cAMP were increased ( p<0.05). Compared with the sham group, the content of IL-6 and TNF-α in I/R group increased, but they were decreased after intervented with SI (100 and 200 mg/kg) ( p<0.05). Compared with the sham group, the expression of p-ERK1/2 in the model group was increased, and the expression of p-ERK1/2 was decreased after SI intervention (100 and 200 mg/kg) (p< 0.01). Conclusion SI can effectively improve oxidative stress and inflammatory response induced by I/R in rats. It is suggested that the protective mechanism of SI on cerebral I/R in rats may be related to the antioxidant and inflammatory reaction of SI.

    Objective Whether Angiotensin II type 1 receptor (Ang II -1R) autoantibody induces islet cell apoptosis by affecting thioredoxin - interacting protein (TXNIP) Methods In cultured rat islet cell line INS-1 cells, and the survival rate of cells was detected using the cell counting kit-8(CCK-8), the results showed 10-6 mol/L of Ang II -1R autoantibody concentration and 24 h were optimal concentration and time point; Under the above conditions, cell apoptosis and the expression of apoptotic protein was respectively detected by flow- cytometry and Western blot; the effect of Ang II -1R autoantibody on the mRNA and protein level of TXNIP was detected by Real-time PCR and Western blot. Results The results showed that Ang II -1R autoantibody decreased the activity of INS-1 cells in dose- and time-dependent manner; the apoptosis of cell was significantly increased in the Ang II -1R autoantibody group, compared with control group. TXNIP mRNA level and protein expression were also increased by Ang II -1R autoantibody treatment. After RNA interference silenced TXNIP expression of INS-1 cells, the expression of TXNIP was down-regulated, and apoptosis was also reduced. After using AT1R antagonist telmisartan (TM), the up-regulation of TXNIP and apoptosis induced by Ang II -1R autoantibody were inhibited. Conclusions Ang II -1R autoantibody can induce apoptosis of islet cells by up-regulating TXNIP expression, which may provide a new target for the prevention and treatment of patients with Ang II -1R autoantibody positive diabetes.

    Objective To investigate the correlation between isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) R132H mutation and the inflammation reaction in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and to explore the effect of IDH1 mutation on ICC. Methods The clinicopathological characteristics of 131 ICCs were summarized and Sanger sequencing was used to detect IDH1 (R132) mutation in these cases. The inflammation reaction was analyzed in these samples by HE staining. The Cre-LoxP system was performed to construct IDH1 R132H intestinal tissue-specific mutant mice. The hepatic bile duct in the mutant mice was isolated and determined by HE staining if there is inflammation reaction. The supernatant was collected after the intervention of the mutant IDH1 metabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate (2-HG) on THP-1 macrophage cell line. ELISA assay was used to detect tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) in the supernatant, which are markers of M1 and M2 subtypes of macrophage, respectively. Results Sequencing revealed that 15.3% (20/131) tumors had R132H IDH1 mutation. HE staining showed that inflammatory cell infiltration increase in the IDH1 mutant group compared with the IDH1 wild-type group(P<0.01)and there was similar result in IDH1 (R132H) intestinal tissue-specific mutant mice(P<0.05). Dihydroxyglutaric acid (2-HG), the metabolite of the mutant IDH1 (R132H), can induce interleukin10 (IL-10) to increase significantly(P<0.01), which was the marker of M2 subtypes of macrophage. In contrast, there was no obvious difference for TNF-α, which was the marker of M1 subtypes of macrophage. Conclusions The mutation of IDH1 can induce the inflammation reaction in ICC and promote THP-1 polarization toward M2, which may provide a basis for understanding the correlation between IDH1(R132) mutation and ICC and supply a promising therapeutic strategy for ICC patients.

    Objective: To study the effect of combine treatment of LSD1 inhibitor pargyline and oxaliplatin on the proliferation of MDA-MB-231 cells and to evaluate the potential value of oxaliplatin combined with pargyline in the treatment of human triple negative breast cancer. Methods: CCK-8 method was used to analyze the effects of LSD1 inhibitor pargyline alone or combine with oxaliplatin on cell growth. Histone H3K4me2 methylation modification and protein expression of Bcl-2, Bax, cytochrome C, E-cardherin and LSD1 was detected with Western blotting. Apoptosis was analyzed with annexin V/PI double staining. Results: Pargyline could significantly inhibit MDA-MB-231 cells growth in a time and dose dependent manner. 1 mmol/L pargyline dramatically inhibited demethylase activity of LSD1 on histone H3K4me2 in MDA-MB-231 cells, meanwhile protein expression of LSD1 was not disturbed in 1 mmol/L pargyline treated MDA-MB-231 cells. Pargyline combined with oxaliplatin displayed a synergistic inhibitory effect on MDA-MB-231 cells growth. Oxaliplatin alone could induce apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 cells which was identified with increased protein expression of Bax, down-regulated protein expression of Bcl-2 and the translocation of cytochrome C from mitochondria to cytoplasm. Furthermore, 1 mmol/L pargyline alone could not induce apoptosis, but significantly pormoted oxaliplatin-induced MDA-MB-231 cells apoptosis. LSD1 over-expression partially reversed the promoting role of pargylineon oxaliplatin-mediated MDA-MB-231 cells proliferation inhibition. Conclusions: Combination of pargyline and oxaliplatin synergistically inhibits MDA-MB-231 cells proliferation, and pargyline promotes oxaliplatin-induced apoptosis and proliferation by inhibiting LSD1.

    Objective To study the effect of urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) gene expression on the migration and invasion of human bladder cancer cell line T24 in vitro and the possible mechanism. Methods uPAR siRNA, Rictor siRNA, PTEN siRNA and NC siRNA were designed, synthesized and transfected into bladder cancer T24 cells using transient transfection, separately,setting as siuPAR, siRictor, siRictor + siuPAR, siuPAR + siPTEN and NC groups. Expression levels of mRNA and protein were respectively detected by real-time quantitive PCR (RT-qPCR) and Western blot. Cell migration assay and Transwell invasion assay were used to testify the migration and invasion of uPAR-silencing T24 cells. Results uPAR mRNA and protein levels of highly invasive bladder cancer T24 cells showed higher than less aggressive RT4 cells(P < 0.05). After T24 cells were transfected with uPAR siRNA, phosphorylation of serine-473, an mammalian target of rapamycin complex 2 (mTORC2) target, in extracellular regulated protein kinase B (Akt) was significantly downregulated(P < 0.05). On the other hand, silencing uPAR also down-regulated migration and invasion of T24 cells(P < 0.05). Moreover, Akt-S473 was neither phosphorylated by uPAR nor mTORC2 in PTEN-negative T24 cells. Instead, silencing uPAR gene derepressed Akt-S473 phosphorylation(P < 0.05). Conclusions Silencing uPAR down-regulates migration and invasion of bladder cancer cell. The possible mechanism is proposed that uPAR might work as mTORC2 upstream regulator in T24 cells.

    Objective To investigate the value of skin sympathetic reflex, anal sphincter electromyography and blink reflex in the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. Methods Fifty patients with Parkinson's disease were selected from Jinhua Central Hospital, according to the evaluation of neurologic function, the patients were divided into two groups: no autonomic nerve dysfunction (PD-NAS) group(thirty-five cases)and autonomic nervous dysfunction (PD-AS) group (fifteen cases). Another fifty healthy health examiners were selected as the control group. Parkinson's autonomic symptoms were scored in all groups, and skin sympathetic reflex, anal sphincter electromyography and blink reflex were measured at the same time. The correlation between Parkinson's autonomic symptom score and skin sympathetic reflex, blink reflex and anal sphincter electromyograms were analyed. Results The average score of SCOPA-AUT in PD-AS group was significantly higher than that in PD-NAS group (P < 0 05), and it was also significantly higher than that in control group (P < 0 05). The skin sympathetic reflex (SSR) of patients in PD-AS group was prolonged the latency and decreased the amplitude compared with the control group (P<0.05). The mean time and polyphasic percentage of motion unit of anal sphincter during slight contraction(MUAP) in PD-AS group were significantly higher than those in PD-NAS group, the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). In the PD-AS group, the latency of R2 and R2' waves was longer than that of the PD-NAS group (P<0.05). In PD-AS group, the amplitude of SSR in upper and lower extremities was positively correlated with the latency of SSR in the upper and lower extremities (P<0.05), and the SCOPA-AUT score was positively correlated with the average duration of MUAP and the percentage of multiphase waves (P<0.05). Conclusions Skin sympathetic reflex, blink reflex and anal sphincter EMG can reflect the severity of autonomic dysfunction in patients with Parkinson's disease and provide a basis for early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.

    Objective To develop an Tibetan version of the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ) and and validate it for the patients with congestive heart failure(CHF). Methods The English version of MLHFQ was translated into Tibetan . It consisted of the following processes: forward translation → the first conference→ backward translation → the second and the third conferences → pilot test → final version. A prospective study, which involved 80 patients with chronic heart failure on the first day of hospitalization, was conducted in the People's Hospital of the Tibet Autonomous Region. All patients in the control group and CHF patients included in the reliability study were retested approximately 7 days after the initial administration of the Tibetan version of MLHFQ. Content validity was evaluated by Content Validity Index (CVI). Internal consistency and repeatability were evaluated by Cronbach's ɑ and Intra-Class Correlation Coefficient (ICC). To assess the applicability of the data in factor analysis, Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) sampling sufficiency measurements and Bartlett spherical tests were tested. If applicable, the structural validity of the Tibetan version of MLHFQ was evaluated by exploratory factor analysis. Results All the questions in the Tibetan version of the questionnaire had a good cultural relevance. In order to adapt to the Tibetan expression, question 8 and 11 had been revised.The effective rate of the questionnaire was 100% (160/160). The content validity index of the expert group evaluation was 0.96. All items in the questionnaire were Cronbach'sα> 0.70, ICC are all >0.6 calibration items - total correlation coefficient was 0.204-0.774. Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) sampling adequacy measurement = 0.80 indicated that the sample size in this study is sufficient.
