Integrons, which are widely distributed among bacteria and are strongly associated with resistance, are specialized genetic elements that are capable of capturing, integrating, and mobilizing gene cassette. In this work, we investigated classes 1, 2, and 3 integrons associated integrases genes in 365 bacteria isolates, amplified and analyzed the structure(More)
Myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) expand in cancer bearing hosts and contribute to tumor immune evasion. M2 macrophages constitute a major cellular component of cancer-related inflammation. However, the correlation between circulating MDSCs and infiltrating M2 macrophages in tumor tissues from patients with esophageal cancer (ECA), and its potential(More)
Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) facilitates the escape of pancreatic cancer cells from the primary tumor site, which is a key early event in metastasis. In the present study, we examined if intermittent hypoxia facilitates the invasiveness of human pancreatic cancer cell lines (Panc-1 and BxPC-3) by Transwell assay. We used western blotting and(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a nuclear protein that has been implicated in the myocardial inflammation and injury induced by ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). The purpose of the present study was to assess the role of HMGB1 in myocardial apoptosis induced by I/R. In vivo, myocardial I/R induced an increase in myocardial HMGB1 expression and apoptosis.(More)
High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is an alarmin actively secreted by immune cells and passively released by necrotic nonimmune cells. HMGB1 has been implicated in both cardiac contractile dysfunction and the lethality associated with sepsis/endotoxemia. The aim of the current study was to assess whether viable cardiomyocytes could produce HMGB1 and whether(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis(RA) is a common autoimmune disease associated with Th17 cells, but what about the effect of high-mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB1) and the relationship between Th17-associated factors and HMGB1 in RA remains unknown. In the present study, we investigated the mRNA levels of HMGB1, RORγt, and IL-17 in peripheral blood(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) affects the health of young children globally causing severe neurologic diseases. The relationship between EV71 infection and T helper type 17 (Th17) has not been described, although this new Th subset or interleukin-17 (IL-17) has been reported to be associated with other viral infections. The purpose of the current study was to(More)
OBJECTIVES The role of integrons in the spread of antibiotic resistance has been well established. The aim of this study was to investigate the resistance profiles of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from patients in Zhenjiang to 13 antibiotics, and to identify the structure and dissemination of class 1 integrons. METHODS The Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion(More)
Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive malignant disease. Owing to the lack of early symptoms, accompanied by extensive metastasis and high resistance to chemotherapy, pancreatic adenocarcinoma becomes the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths. In this study, we identified a subpopulation of cells isolated from the Panc-1 cell line and named pancreatic(More)
Herbaspirillum species, colonized the plant rhizosphere, also called rhizobacteria, are plant growth-promoting bacteria. Recently we isolated Herbaspirillum from blood cultures of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and identified by PCR and gene sequencing. Herbaspirillum may be a potential pathogenic bacteria. Although the exact role that these species(More)
