Authors: Liu B, Xu M, Guo Z, Liu J, Chu X, Jiang H Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate whether interleukin-8 (IL-8) enhances the ability of prostate cancer bone metastasis by influencing the coding level of bone sialoprotein (BSP). Cultured prostate cancer cell lines LNCaP (androgen dependent) and DU145 (androgen independent) were divided into three groups: IL-8 treatment group; IL-8 receptor inhibitor (SB225002) treatment group; and control group. Western blotting and reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) were used to detect BSP protein and mRNA expression leve...

CONCLUSION: Adding surgery in a multimodal treatment model in high-risk prostate cancer showed significantly better survival outcome compared with the current standard of radiotherapy. Surgery in this group is, therefore, compelling and that also includes a clinical T3-stage of the disease. The study is limited by possible selection bias for the two treatment models.

Conclusion In this article, we proposed a novel method LPI-IBNRA for predicting lncRNA-protein interactions, based on the known lncRNA-protein interactions, lncRNA expression similarity and protein-protein interactions. We integrated the known interactions and similarity as the initial resource scores for a two-round resource allocation of a bipartite network recommendation. Furthermore, we optimized the weight matrix by eliminating second-order correlations appropriately, to obtain the final result of lncRNA-protein interaction prediction. We finally acquired gratifying and reliable prediction performance in LOOCV, 10-fo...

In this study we adopted an all-in-one method. Primers designed according to the two gRNA sequences and the tracRNA-U6 vector sequences were used to produce a gRNA1-tracRNA-U6-gRNA2 fragment. Then the proper fragment was ligated into the lentiCRISPRv2 vector and verified by sequencing. Lentiviral Packaging and Stable Cell Line Screening The constructed eukaryotic expression vector and gene knockdown vector were transfected into the 293T cells with the packaging plasmids psPAX2 and pMD2.G using Lipofectamine 2000 (Thermo Fisher, Massachusetts, USA). The lentivirus was harvested 48 h after transfection, and the lentivirus ...

Conclusion: Our data suggests that the precancerous unstable CNVs with potentially predisposing genetic backgrounds may foster the onset of driver mutations and the development of independent SM-GGNs during the local stimulation of mutagens. Introduction The widespread use of advanced chest computed tomography (CT) for lung cancer screening has facilitated the detection of ground-glass nodules (GGNs) (1–3). Recent data indicates that up to 20% of GGN patients (3% of the screening population) are diagnosed with synchronous multiple ground-glass nodules (SM-GGNs) (4). GGNs are like atypical adenomatous hyperplasi...

Conclusions In this review, we analyzed mechanisms through which mitobolites, a distinct set of mitochondria-generated metabolites, can be released from mitochondria and then act as second messengers that contribute to cellular and organismal aging by regulating longevity-defining processes outside of mitochondria. Our analysis indicates that in eukaryotes across phyla, these second messengers of cellular aging exhibit the following common features: (1) they are produced in mitochondria in response to certain changes in the nutrient, stress, proliferation or age status of the cell; it remains unknown, however, what kind o...
