Authors: Li Q, Zhang A, Xing C, Yuan Y Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is recognized as a worldwide health problem. Progression of CKD may lead to many serious complications, which are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Presently, there is no satisfactory treatment. Thus, targeted therapies are urgently needed. The kidneys are second to the heart in terms of mitochondrial abundance and oxygen consumption. Thus, it is not surprising that mitochondrial homeostasis is absolutely essential for the normal function of the kidney. In fact, a number of reports indicate that mitochondria are involved i...

Authors: Li T, Han J, Jia L, Hu X, Chen L, Wang Y Abstract A change in the metabolic flux of glucose from mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to aerobic glycolysis is regarded as one hallmark of cancer. However, the mechanisms underlying the metabolic switch between aerobic glycolysis and OXPHOS are unclear. Here we show that the M2 isoform of pyruvate kinase (PKM2), one of the rate-limiting enzymes in glycolysis, interacts with mitofusin 2 (MFN2), a key regulator of mitochondrial fusion, to promote mitochondrial fusion and OXPHOS, and attenuate glycolysis. mTOR increases the PKM2:MFN2 interaction by p...

In conclusion, CD133 promoted the upregulation of CSC/TSC-related genes in glioma cells, while enhancing the neurosphere-forming ability and in-vivo oncogenicity. PMID: 30891998 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: tTGIgA were increasingly tested, while the rate of positive results decreased in recent years, possibly reflecting the impact of current alimentary trends on clinical practice. Associated autoimmune disease was frequently found in CD. High levels of tTGIgA accurately predicted CD diagnosis. WA was rarely investigated and deserves more attention, in particular in children with atopic background. WA does not seem to be associated with CD.Int Arch Allergy Immunol

Conclusions: Lifetime cannabis use is associated with better working memory and processing speed and worse real-world functioning in the area of socially useful activities in patients with schizophrenia-related disorders. Clinicians should, therefore, be aware of it to provide patient-centred care in their daily clinical practice.Eur Addict Res 2019;25:111 –118

The objective of this paper is to analyse how narratives targeting ambitions and self-realisation in work life are expressed by individuals with HFA in relation to the citizen-worker discourse. This ethnographic study comprises 26 qualitative interview narratives by 11 participants with HFA. Findings indicate that the participants have developed a strong citizen-worker identity. The will is an essential point of gravity, expressed through notions of individual meaningfulness and ambitions of being perceived as resources in any vocational context. Barriers to these ambitions are experienced as personally counteractive suppo...

Publication date: June 2019Source: Nano Energy, Volume 60Author(s): Yanfen Wen, Jingjing Fan, Chenguang Shi, Peng Dai, Yuhao Hong, Ruixiang Wang, Lina Wu, Zhiyou Zhou, Juntao Li, Ling Huang, Shi-Gang SunAbstractAs a cost-effective element, Mg has been applied as doped inactive atom to improve the electrochemical performance of sodium-ion cathode materials. Herein, we report Mg-substituted Na0.67Mn0.65Ni0.2Co0.15-xMgxO2 composites as high-performance cathode for sodium-ion batteries and investigate the underlying working mechanism using in situ investigation techniques to monitor the operando changes of electrodes. In situ ...

This study demonstrates a simple one-pot green method for biosynthesis of terpenoids encapsulated copper oxide nanoparticles (CuONPs) using aqueous leaf extract of Eucalyptus globulus (ELE), as reducing, dispersing, and stabilizing agent. Indeed, the greater attachment and internalization of ELE-CuONPs in Gram-positive and -negative biofilm producing clinical bacterial isolates validated the hypothesis that terpenoids encapsulated CuONPs are more stable and effective antibacterial and antibiofilm agent vis-à-vis commercially available nano and micro sized analogues. Gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC–MS)...
