07 The approach to generate oncolytic adenovirus by sirna mediated e1b silencing
Conclusion In addition to knockout of the E1B coding cassette, siRNA mediated E1B also serves as an approach to prepare oncolytic adenovirus. Acknowledgements Supported by grants from UICC (ICRETT Fellowship), Guangdong Commission of Health and Family Plan (Grant No. 2014A276).
In this study, we discussed the function and mechanism of LRG1 in acute ischemic stroke from both basic and clinical research points of view. Mice underwent transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO) surgery two weeks after LRG1 was overexpressed by the delivery of adeno-associated virus (AAV). For wild-type mice, both the protein and the transcript of LRG1 in the brain tissue were elevated after tMCAO. Meanwhile, the serum levels of LRG1 were decreased after tMCAO. The neuronal injury was shown aggravated in the AAV-LRG1 group (AAV-LRG1 mice with tMCAO) through infarction volume, neurological score, HE, and Nissl ...

Prolonged pulsatile administration of Levodopa (L-dopa) can generate L-dopa–induced dyskinesia (LID). Numerous studies have shown that continuous dopamine delivery (CDD) was helpful in reducing the expression of LID. 6-OHDA lesioned rats were randomly divided into two groups to receive intermittent L-dopa stimulation (L-dopa/benserazide) or Levodopa/benserazide PLGA microsphere (LBPM) for 3 weeks. rAAV (recombinant adeno-associated virus) vector were used to overexpress and ablation of β-arrestin2. We found that LBPM developed less AIM severity compared with standard L-dopa administration, whereas selective dele...
In this study，we observed abnormally high EGR1 expression in the articular cartilage of patients with osteoarthritis. We also found significantly high EGR1 expression in the articular cartilage of mice with destabilized medial meniscus (DMM)-induced osteoarthritis and 20-month-old mice. In vitro experiments indicated that IL-1β could significantly enhance EGR1 expression in primary mouse chondrocytes. EGR1 over-expression in chondrocytes using adenovirus could inhibit COl2A1 expression and enhance MMP9 and MMP13 expression. And silencing EGR1, using RNAi, had the opposite effects. Moreover, EGR1 over-expression acce...
Conclusion: Overexpression of miR-26a in muscle prevented CKD-induced muscle wasting and attenuated cardiomyopathy via exosome-mediated miR-26a transfer. These results suggest possible therapeutic strategies for using exosome delivery of miR-26a to treat complications of CKD.
Conclusions: Sortilin-mediated secretion of BDNF from DRG neurons contributes to CFA-induced inflammatory pain. Interfering with proBDNF-sortilin interaction reduced activity-dependent release of BDNF and might serve as a therapeutic approach for chronic inflammatory pain.
Conclusion: Our data suggest that autophagy impairment facilitates apoptosis, which, in turn, disrupts autophagy, ultimately resulting in cell death, and that autophagy may act as a promising therapeutic target for PBDE-47-induced developmental neurotoxicity.
Conclusions: RCAN1.4 could alleviate liver fibrosis through inhibition of CaN/NFAT3 signaling, and the anti-fibrosis function of RCAN1.4 could be blocked by DNA methylation mediated by DNMT1 and DNMT3b. Thus, RCAN1.4 may serve as a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of liver fibrosis.
Conclusion: These data demonstrate IL-21-based gene and cellular therapies as valid candidates for treating chronic HBV infections, with potential in removing cccDNA-harboring hepatocytes via activated CD8+ T cells accompanied by long-term protective memory.
