Conotruncal heart defect (CTD) is a complex form of congenital heart disease and usually has a poor prognosis. ZFPM2/FOG2 encodes a transcription cofactor that interacts with GATA4 to regulate cardiac development. This regulation has been established in knockout mouse models that display a range of heart malformations, especially CTD. Although previous(More)
Dimensionality reduction (DR) methods based on sparse representation as one of the hottest research topics have achieved remarkable performance in many applications in recent years. However, it’s a challenge for existing sparse representation based methods to solve nonlinear problem due to the limitations of seeking sparse representation of data in the(More)
Articular cartilage defects have been addressed by using multiple strategies. In the last two decades, promising new strategies by using assorted scaffolds and cell sources to induce tissue regeneration have emerged, such as autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and mesenchymal stem cell implantation (MSCI). However, it is still controversial in the(More)
We hypothesized that SIRT1 downregulation in osteoblasts induced by wear particles was one of the reasons for particle-induced osteolysis (PIO) in total joint arthroplasty failure. In the present study, the expression of SIRT1 was examined in osteoblasts treated with TiAl6V4 particles (TiPs) and CoCrMo particles (CoPs) from materials used in prosthetics and(More)
Wear debris-induced osteolysis is the leading cause of aseptic loosening, which is the most common reason for total hip arthroplasty (THA) failure in the medium and long term. Although osteocytes are the most abundant cells in bone and make direct contact with implants, the interaction between osteocytes and wear debris remains largely unknown. In the(More)
Wear particle-induced inflammatory osteolysis is the primary cause of aseptic loosening, which is the most common reason for total hip arthroplasty (THA) failure in the med- and long term. Recent studies have suggested an important role of gut microbiota (GM) in modulating the host metabolism and immune system, leading to alterations in bone mass. Probiotic(More)
Aseptic loosening is the most common cause of total hip arthroplasty (THA) failure, and osteolysis induced by wear particles plays a major role in aseptic loosening. Various pathways in multiple cell types contribute to the pathogenesis of osteolysis, but the role of Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), which can regulate inflammatory responses through its deacetylation, has(More)
Primary frozen shoulder (PFS) is a common condition of uncertain etiology that is characterized by shoulder pain and restriction of active and passive glenohumeral motions. The pathophysiology involves chronic inflammation and fibrosis of the joint capsule. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at IL-1β, MMP3, TGF-β1, and GDF5 have been associated with(More)
