Selenium involvement in mitochondrial function in thyroid disorders.

Selenium involvement in mitochondrial function in thyroid disorders. Hormones (Athens). 2020 Jan 20;: Authors: Gheorghiu ML, Badiu C Abstract Selenium (Se), an important oligoelement, is a component of the antioxidant system. Over the last decade, it has been ever more frequently discussed in the context of thyroid disorders. Graves' disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, differentiated thyroid cancer, and even endemic goiter may have common triggers that are activated by excess reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are involved in various stages of the pathogenesis of thyroid disorders. Most oxidative events occur in mitochondria, organelles that contain enzymes with Se as a cofactor. Mitochondria are responsible for the production of ATP in the cell and are also a major site of ROS production. Thyroid hormone status (the thyroid being the organ with the highest concentration of Se in the body) has a profound impact on mitochondria biogenesis. In this review, we focus on the role of Se in mitochondrial function in thyroid disorders with impaired oxidative stress, since both thyroid hormone synthesis and thyroid dysfunction involve ROS. The role of Se deficiency or its excess in relation to mitochondrial dysfunction in the context of thyroid disorders is therefore of interest. PMID: 31960358 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Ma Q, Shao Y, Chen W, Quan C, Zhu Y, Xu X, Zhou Z, Wang S Abstract Aim: To investigate whether cervical cancer (CC) and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) can be screened by analyzing gene expression profiling of peripheral blood. Methods: RNA-sequencing analysis of blood was performed on 11 CC patients, 21 CIN patients and 19 healthy controls (H). Fifty-nine genes were validated by quantitative real-time PCR using blood samples from 46 H, 83 CC and 32 CIN patients. Results: There were significant differences in the expression levels of six genes between CC and H, five genes between CIN and H and fou...

Authors: Deng Z, Wu J, Xu S, Chen F, Zhang Z, Jin A, Wang J Abstract Exosomes have appeared as fundamental vehicle-modulated crosstalk among various cells in the tumor microenvironment. The systematic understanding of exosomes in gastric cancer (GC) enhances our comprehension about the tumor growth, metastasis, chemoresistance and diagnosis of cancers. The versatile functions of exosomes provide reasonable explanations about the propensity for GC metastasis. The selectively enriched components, especially some exosomal miRNAs, are potential noninvasive biomarkers for sensitive and specific GC diagnosis. Given the c...

This study aimed to quantitatively grasp the structure of support for balancing cancer treatment and work among occupational health nurses (OHNs) with the current implementation status. The anonymous questionnaire was designed based on the findings of our previous qualitative study and distributed to OHNs. The degrees of support implementation for workers with cancer, superiors and colleagues, and human resource managers were assessed for each item. Factor analysis of support items was conducted, and Wilcoxon signed-rank test was carried out to compare the support scores between the factors. Support for workers with cancer...

Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Mechanisms of Ageing and DevelopmentAuthor(s): Konstantinos Palikaras, Nektarios TavernarakisAbstractMaintenance of synaptic homeostasis is a challenging task, due to the intricate spatial organization and intense activity of synapses. Typically, synapses are located far away from the neuronal cell body, where they orchestrate neuronal signalling and communication, through neurotransmitter release. Stationary mitochondria provide energy required for synaptic vesicle cycling, and preserve ionic balance by buffering intercellular calcium at synapses. Thus, synaptic h...

It has become a major risk factor of human diseases, including diabetes, cancers, cardiovascular diseases and neurodegenerative diseases. Silencing information regulator 2 related enzyme 1(sirtuin1, SIRT1) is an NAD+-dependent deacetylase, which has been reported to be involved in the regulation of cellular senescence and aging. The expression of SIRT1...

AbstractBackgroundThe proportion of elderly patients undergoing surgery for gastric cancer is increasing. However, limited number of therapeutic outcomes in the elderly has been reported. Here we examined the surgical results based on a nationwide survey of elderly patients who underwent surgery for Stage I gastric cancer.MethodsData from 68,353 Stage I patients who underwent gastrectomy between 2001 and 2007 were retrospectively collected. The accumulated data were reviewed and analyzed by the Japanese Gastric Cancer Association registration committee. We first classified the patients as those aged  ≤ 74&...

AbstractBackgroundLong non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as important roles in gastric cancer (GC). However, the role of the dysregulated lncRNAs in GC remained large unknown. We investigated the clinical significance, biological function and mechanism of CTC-497E21.4 in GC.MethodsFirstly, RTFQ-PCR was used to detect the expression of CTC-497E21.4 in GC. Furthermore, knockdown of CTC-497E21.4 was conducted to assess the effect of CTC-497E21.4 in vitro and vivo. Subcellular localization of CTC-497E21.4 was determined by nuclear plasmolysis PCR and FISH. We also predicted CTC-497E21.4 binding miRNAs and downstream targe...

AbstractPurposeFine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a commonly performed procedure for parotid masses, although its accuracy in detecting malignancies widely varies through different series. We evaluated our single-center cohort of parotidectomies to highlight possible limitations of preoperative FNAC.MethodsSeven hundred and eighteen consecutive patients submitted to parotid surgery at San Raffaele Scientific Institute (Milan) were retrospectively evaluated (2002 –2018). Five hundred and fifty four FNAC were analyzed. FNAC accuracy was assessed with and without inclusion of “inconclusive” results. T...
