Small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMCs) are a group of rare chromosomal anomalies, which pose challenges in the clinical practice of prenatal diagnosis and genetic counseling. This study enrolled an extended family with an underage male patient displaying infantile seizures, intellectual disability, and retarded speech and psychomotor function. A series of multiplatform genetic detections was conducted to explore the diagnostic variation. Whole exome sequencing (WES) and chromosomal micro...
Objective. To investigate the role of PI3K/AKT signaling pathway in nucleus pulposus (NP) cells. Methods. Nucleus pulposus (NP) cells were isolated from SD rat, and thereafter, passage three (P3) NP cells were divided into the following experimental groups: control, PI3K/AKT agonist IGF-1 (25 ng/ml, 50 ng/ml, and 100 ng/ml), and PI3K/AKT inhibitor LY294002 (5 μM, 10 μM, and 20 μM). Flow cytometry and BrdU cell proliferation assays were performed to assess apoptosis and the proliferation rate of ...
In the current study, our goal was to obtain a robust model to predict the speed of sound in biodiesel. For this purpose, an extensive databank has been extracted from previously published papers. Then, a Support Vector Machine (SVM) has been optimized by Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) method to analyze these data and determine the correlation between speed of sound in biodiesel and its related properties including pressure, temperature, molecular weight, and normal melting point. The results were...
The aim of this study was to explore the correlation between ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology(US-FNAC) combined with BRAF V600E mutation analysis and central neck lymph node metastasis in cN0 papillary thyroid cancer, so as to provide reliable molecular evidence to use it for preoperative evaluation, operation procedure design, and postoperative follow-up planning in clinic. Specimens were obtained from 250 patients with cN0 thyroid cancer (TI-RADS≥4a, highly suspected of PTC by...

Introduction. In recent years, the tumour immunosuppressive mechanism has attracted attention as a cause of tumour chemoresistance. Although chemoresistance and immunosuppression of tumours have been reported to be associated with a hypoxic environment, effective treatments to improve hypoxia in tumours have not yet been established. We have previously applied carbon dioxide (CO2) to squamous cell carcinoma and have shown that improvement in local oxygenation has an antitumour effect. However, t...
This article is aimed at analyzing the structure and function of the spike (S) proteins of porcine enteric coronaviruses, including transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV), porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV), and swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus (SADS-CoV) by applying bioinformatics methods. The physical and chemical properties, hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity, transmembrane region, signal peptide, phosphorylation and glycosylation sites, epito...
Objective. A crosssectional study was conducted between September 2015 and August 2016 in the district of Afar Regional State, Northeastern Ethiopia, to characterize the most prevalent bacterial pathogens and identify the associated risk factors of camel subclinical mastitis. California mastitis test (CMT) was used as a screening test, and standard bacteriological methods were carried out for isolation and identification of the pathogens. Results. Among the total 96 lactating camels examined, 25...
Reduction in isometric strength of the scapulohumeral muscles is a commonly seen impairment in overhead athletes afflicted with shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS). The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of two different treatment programs: progressive resistance exercises plus manual therapy (PRE plus MT) and motor control exercises (MCE), on isometric strength of upper trapezius (UT), middle trapezius (MTr), lower trapezius (LT), serratus anterior (SA), supraspinatus (Supr.), ant...
Introduction. As the clinical manifestation of neonatal infection is nonspecific and characterised by varied clinical features, it is highly problematic to establish an early diagnosis. Recently, hopes have been raised by the new acute-phase protein—pentraxin 3 (PTX3). PTX3 belongs to the family of long pentraxins, which is synthesized in numerous cells like endothelial cells, macrophages, and monocytes infiltrating sites of inflammation. Material and Methods. In our research, we have enrolled 2...

Low back pain which resulted from intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) is a common health problem that afflicts people all over the world. Due to the lack of an overall understanding of the molecular interactions involved in IDD, we hope to better understand the pathogenetic mechanisms that drive the degenerative process. The purpose of this study is to obtain mRNAs, miRNAs, lncRNAs, and circRNAs associated with IDD gained from public databases and to establish an interaction network. Accordin...
