Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) were one of the major components of the immune suppressive network. STAT3 has an important role in regulating the suppressive potential of MDSCs. In this study, we found that the expression of STAT3 could be modulated by both miR-17-5p and miR-20a. The transfection of miR-17-5p or miR-20a remarkably reduces the(More)
Dendritic cell (DC) function is negatively affected by tumors and tumor-derived factors, but little is known about the underlying mechanisms. Here, we show that intracellular SOCS3 in DCs binds to pyruvate kinase type M2 (M2-PK), which plays a critical role in ATP production through glycolysis. The interaction of SOCS3 with M2-PK reduced ATP production and(More)
A 2-year field experiment was conducted on maize (Zea mays L.) to explore effective ways to decrease soil CO2 emissions and increase grain yield. Treatments established were: (1) no mulching with urea, (2) no mulching with controlled release fertiliser (CRF), (3) transparent plastic-film mulching (PMt) with urea, (4) PMt with CRF, (5) black plastic-film(More)
