  • Histopathological Classification of Pseudomyxoma Peritonei and the Prognostic Importance of PINCH Protein
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Anticancer Research. - 0250-7005 .- 1791-7530. ; 32:4, s. 1443-1448
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aim:The aims of this study were i) to assess a new and more detailed histopathological classification and to analyze concordance between pathologists in the histopathological classification of pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP); ii) to analyze the expression in the stroma of the particularly interesting new cysteine-histidine (PINCH) protein and its prognostic importance in PMP.Materials and Methods:Surgical specimens from 81 patients, classified according to the Ronnett et al histopathological classification were compared to a new system with four groups ranging from indolent to aggressive growth patterns. PINCH protein expression was analyzed and was related to clinical variables.Results:The new four-group classification provided better prognostic information than the classification according to Ronnett et al. (p=0.04). Expression of the PINCH protein in the stroma was found in 83% of the cases and was associated with high tumor burden (p=0.002) and a poor prognosis (p=0.04).Conclusion:The proposed new PMP classification system may provide additional prognostic information. PINCH protein is expressed in PMP and has prognostic information.

  • Image quality assessment based on multi-order local features description, modeling and quantification
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems. - The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers. - 0916-8532. ; E100D:6, s. 1303-1315

    • Image quality assessment (IQA) plays an important role in quality monitoring, evaluation and optimization for image processing systems. However, current quality-Aware feature extraction methods for IQA can hardly balance accuracy and complexity. This paper introduces multi-order local description into image quality assessment for feature extraction. The first-order structure derivative and high-order discriminative information are integrated into local pattern representation to serve as the quality-Aware features. Then joint distributions of the local pattern representation are modeled by spatially enhanced histogram. Finally, the image quality degradation is estimated by quantifying the divergence between such distributions of the reference image and those of the distorted image. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms other state-of-The-Art approaches in consideration of not only accuracy that is consistent with human subjective evaluation, but also robustness and stability across different distortion types and various public databases. It provides a promising choice for image quality assessment development.

  • Small interfering RNA-directed targeting of toll-like receptor 4 inhibits human prostate cancer cell invasion, survival, and tumorigenicity
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Molecular Immunology. - 0161-5890. ; 46:15, s. 2876-2884
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A major cause of tumor treatment failure is cancer cell metastasis. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)-mediated signaling has been implicated in tumor cell invasion, survival, and metastasis in a variety of cancers. In this study, we investigated the biological roles of TLR4 in prostate metastatic cell invasion and survival, and the potential of gene silencing of TLR4 using small interfering RNA (siRNA) for treatment of cancer. In cultured human prostate cancer cell lines, TLR4 were higher PC3 and DU145 as compared with the poorly metastatic LNCaP indicating that up-regulation of TLR4 was positively correlated with metastasis of tumor cell. In the highly metastatic cancer cell PC3, gene silencing of TLR4 using siRNA significantly inhibited TLR4 mRNA expression and protein level. Knockdown of TLR4 in PC3 cells resulted in a dramatic reduction of tumor cell migration and invasion as indicated by a Matrigel invasion assay. Furthermore, TLR4 siRNA suppressed cell viability and ultimately caused the induction of apoptotic cell death. The effects were associated with abrogating TLR4-mediated signaling to downstream target molecules such as myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88), adaptor-inducing IFN-beta (TRIF), and interferon regulatory factor-1 (IRF-1). In a mouse prostate cancer model, administration with the plasmid construct expressing siRNA for TLR4 obviously inhibited established tumor growth and survival. These studies revealed evidence of a multifaceted signaling network operating downstream of TLR4-mediated tumor cell invasion, proliferation, and survival. Thus, RNA interference-directed targeting of TLR4 may raise the potential of its application for cancer therapy.

  • Polymorphism in the promoter region of the NFKB1 gene increases the risk of sporadic colorectal cancer in Swedish but not in Chinese populations
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology. - 0036-5521. ; 42:11, s. 1332-1338
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective. An insertion/deletion polymorphism (-94ins/delATTG) in the promoter region of the NFKB1 gene correlates to an increased risk of ulcerative colitis, a known risk factor for colorectal cancer, but this polymorphism has not been studied in colorectal cancer patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether this polymorphism is related to colorectal cancer risk and clinicopathological variables. Material and methods. Case samples were taken from four groups of Swedish patients: 193 unselected patients, 90 patients with ≥3 affected 1st-degree relatives, 85 patients with 2 affected 1st-degree relatives, and 109 sporadic cancer patients, and one group of 193 unselected Chinese patients. Controls included 439 Swedish and 458 Chinese healthy individuals. Genotypes were determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism. Results. The deletion increased the risk of colorectal cancer among Swedish unselected patients (OR=3.81, 95% CI: 2.17-6.69, p<0.0001 for heterozygote deletion, and OR=4.65, 95% CI: 2.43-8.89, p<0.0001 for homozygote deletion) and sporadic cancer patients (OR=7.73, 95% CI: 3.06-19.57, p<0.0001 for heterozygote deletion, and OR=6.58, 95% CI: 2.35-18.43, p<0.0001 for homozygote deletion) compared to homozygote insertion (wild-type), but not among the other Swedish or Chinese patients (p>0.05). Similar evidence was seen in age-adjusted analyses (p<0.0001). The polymorphism did not correlate to clinicopathological variables (p>0.05). Conclusions. Deletion of the polymorphism was associated with increased susceptibility to sporadic colorectal cancers in the Swedish population, but not in the Swedish patients with a family history of colorectal cancer or in Chinese patients. © 2007 Taylor & Francis.

  • Genetic responses to seasonalvariation in altitudinal stress: whole-genome resequencing ofgreat tit in eastern Himalayas
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Scientific Reports. - 2045-2322. ; 5
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Species that undertake altitudinal migrations are exposed to a considerable seasonal variationin oxygen levels and temperature. How they cope with this was studied in a population of greattit (Parus major) that breeds at high elevations and winters at lower elevations in the easternHimalayas. Comparison of population genomics of high altitudinal great tits and those living inlowlands revealed an accelerated genetic selection for carbohydrate energy metabolism (aminosugar, nucleotide sugar metabolism and insulin signaling pathways) and hypoxia response (PI3K-akt,mTOR and MAPK signaling pathways) in the high altitudinal population. The PI3K-akt, mTOR andMAPK pathways modulate the hypoxia-inducible factors, HIF-1α and VEGF protein expression thusindirectly regulate hypoxia induced angiogenesis, erythropoiesis and vasodilatation. The strategiesobserved in high altitudinal great tits differ from those described in a closely related species onthe Tibetan Plateau, the sedentary ground tit (Parus humilis). This species has enhanced selectionin lipid-specific metabolic pathways and hypoxia-inducible factor pathway (HIF-1). Comparativepopulation genomics also revealed selection for larger body size in high altitudinal great tits.

  • Perturbation of 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole in adipogenesis of male mice with normal and high fat diets
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Science of the Total Environment. - Elsevier. - 0048-9697. ; 703
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • As one of the widely used anthropogenic food additives, 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (3-BHA) has been found to perturb adipogenesis in vitro and induce lipid accumulation in some strains of oleaginous microalgae. The impact of this chemical on adipocyte development and lipid metabolism in mammals remains to be elucidated. In this study, we performed 18-week oral administration of 3-BHA to male C57BL/6J mice with normal diet (ND) or high-fat diet (HFD) and investigated its impacts on adipogenesis and lipid accumulation in vivo. The results indicated that long-term exposure to 3-BHA impacted the mouse body weight gain, white adipose tissue accumulation, and plasma lipids through transcriptional regulation of adipogenesis, lipid metabolism, and adipocyte endocrine function, while glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity remained unaffected. HFD-fed mice responded to 3-BHA stimulation differently from ND-fed animals, suggesting potential risks for the human burden of 3-BHA in lean and obese subjects. The findings herein validate 3-BHA as an environmental obesogen, and more caution is recommended for its authorized use as a food antioxidant against lipid rancidity.

  • Target genes, variants, tissues and transcriptional pathways influencing human serum urate levels
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Nature Genetics. - 1061-4036 .- 1546-1718. ; 51:10, s. 1459-1474

    • Elevated serum urate levels cause gout and correlate with cardiometabolic diseases via poorly understood mechanisms. We performed a trans-ancestry genome-wide association study of serum urate in 457,690 individuals, identifying 183 loci (147 previously unknown) that improve the prediction of gout in an independent cohort of 334,880 individuals. Serum urate showed significant genetic correlations with many cardiometabolic traits, with genetic causality analyses supporting a substantial role for pleiotropy. Enrichment analysis, fine-mapping of urate-associated loci and colocalization with gene expression in 47 tissues implicated the kidney and liver as the main target organs and prioritized potentially causal genes and variants, including the transcriptional master regulators in the liver and kidney, HNF1A and HNF4A. Experimental validation showed that HNF4A transactivated the promoter of ABCG2, encoding a major urate transporter, in kidney cells, and that HNF4A p.Thr139Ile is a functional variant. Transcriptional coregulation within and across organs may be a general mechanism underlying the observed pleiotropy between urate and cardiometabolic traits.

  • Expression of PINCH protein in gliomas and its clinicopathological significance
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Oncology. - 0890-9091. ; 72:5-6, s. 343-346
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: Particularly interesting new cysteine-histidine-rich protein (PINCH), as a LIM domain adapter protein, functions in the integrin and growth factor signal transduction pathway, and is upregulated in tumor-associated stroma in several types of cancers. However, no study of PINCH has been carried out in gliomas, therefore we examined PINCH expression in gliomas and its clinicopathological significance. Methods: PINCH expression was immunohistochemically examined in 82 gliomas, along with 26 matched adjacent normal brain samples and 10 recurred gliomas. Results: PINCH was strongly expressed in the primary (35%, p = 0.0001) or recurred tumors (40%, p = 0.004) and weak in normal brain tissue. PINCH expression was significantly increased in high-grade gliomas (55 vs. 24%, high- vs. low-grade gliomas, p = 0.004). There was no association of PINCH expression with gender, age, tumor number, size, histological type and tumor location (p > 0.05). Conclusions: PINCH expression may be involved in glioma development and differentiation. Copyright © 2008 S. Karger AG.

  • FXYD3 Expression in Gliomas and its Clinicopathological Significance
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Oncology Research. - 0965-0407. ; 18:4, s. 133-139
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • FXYD3, interacting with Na+/K+-ATPase, is considered a cell surface regulator modulating the function of ion pumps and ion channels. The FXYD3 gene was originally cloned from murine mammary tumors and then from human breast tumors. However, no study of FXYD3 has been carried out in gliomas; therefore, we examined FXYD3 expression in gliomas and its clinicopathological significance. FXYD3 expression was immunohistochemically examined in 71 primary gliomas, along with 37 matched adjacent normal brain samples and 8 recurred gliomas. The frequency of strong FXYD3 expression was higher in the primary tumors in either unmatched (p = 0.046) or matched cases (p = 0.02), compared to normal brain tissue. FXYD3 expression was significantly more increased in females than males (p = 0.01), and in multiple site gliomas than single sites (p = 0.02). There was no difference of FXYD3 expression regarding age, tumor location, size, histological type, and tumor grade (p greater than 0.05). The results suggest that FXYD3 expression may be involved in glioma development, especially in multiple gliomas and female patients.

  • High efficient isolation and systematic identification of human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Journal of Biomedical Science. - 1021-7770 .- 1423-0127. ; 18, s. 59
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Developing efficient methods to isolate and identify human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hADSCs) remains to be one of the major challenges in tissue engineering.Methods: We demonstrate here a method by isolating hADSCs from abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue harvested during caesarian section. The hADSCs were isolated from human adipose tissue by collagenase digestion and adherence to flasks.Results: The yield reached around 1 x 10(6) hADSCs per gram adipose tissue. The following comprehensive identification and characterization illustrated pronounced features of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The fibroblast-like hADSCs exhibited typical ultrastructure details for vigorous cell activities. Karyotype mapping showed normal human chromosome. With unique immunophenotypes they were positive for CD29, CD44, CD73, CD105 and CD166, but negative for CD31, CD34, CD45 and HLA-DR. The growth curve and cell cycle analysis revealed high capability for self-renewal and proliferation. Moreover, these cells could be functionally induced into adipocytes, osteoblasts, and endothelial cells in the presence of appropriate conditioned media.Conclusion: The data presented here suggest that we have developed high efficient isolation and cultivation methods with a systematic strategy for identification and characterization of hADSCs. These techniques will be able to provide safe and stable seeding cells for research and clinical application.
