The TREM2-APOE Pathway Drives the Transcriptional Phenotype of Dysfunctional Microglia in Neurodegenerative Diseases.
The TREM2-APOE pathway is identified as a major regulator of microglial functional phenotype in neurodegenerative diseases and serves as a novel target that could aid in the restoration of homeostatic microglia. Expand
Mental health problems and social media exposure during COVID-19 outbreak
There are high prevalence of mental health problems, which positively associated with frequently SME during the COVID-19 outbreak, and the government need pay more attention to mental health issues among general population and combating with “infodemic” while combating during public health emergency.

Enhanced anti-tumor efficacy by co-delivery of doxorubicin and paclitaxel with amphiphilic methoxy PEG-PLGA copolymer nanoparticles.
The use of single chemotherapeutic drug has shown some limitations in anti-tumor treatment, such as development of drug resistance, high toxicity and limited regime of clinical uses. The combination… Expand
Context-dependent signaling defines roles of BMP9 and BMP10 in embryonic and postnatal development
- H. Chen, John Brady Ridgway, +7 authors Minhong Yan

- 27 June 2013
Surprisingly, analysis of Bmp109/9 mice demonstrated that BMP10 has an exclusive function in cardiac development, which cannot be substituted by BMP9, and reveals context-dependent significance in having multiple ligands in a signaling pathway. Expand
miR-100-5p-abundant exosomes derived from infrapatellar fat pad MSCs protect articular cartilage and ameliorate gait abnormalities via inhibition of mTOR in osteoarthritis.
MSCIPFP-derived exosomes protect articular cartilage from damage and ameliorate gait abnormality in OA mice by maintaining cartilage homeostasis, the mechanism of which may be related to miR100-5p-regulated inhibition of mTOR-autophagy pathway. Expand

- The Journal of infectious diseases
- 1 September 2008
Immunomodulatory therapy that combines thymosin alpha(1) and ulinastatin appears to improve the survival rate for patients infected with carbapenem-resistant bacteria. Expand
Discovery of Potent Small-Molecule Inhibitors of Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme UbcH5c from α-Santonin Derivatives.

- Journal of medicinal chemistry
- 2 August 2017
Mechanistic investigations revealed that compound 6d preferentially bound to and inactivated UbcH5c by forming a covalent adduct with its active site Cys85, and exhibited potent anti-inflammatory activity against complete Freund's adjuvant-induced adjUvant arthritis in vivo. Expand
STK31 maintains the undifferentiated state of colon cancer cells.
It is reported that STK31 is robustly and heterogeneously expressed in colon cancer tissues and plays a critical role in determining the differentiation state of colon cancer cells. Expand
