LASP-1 promotes tumor proliferation and metastasis and is an independent unfavorable prognostic factor in gastric cancer.
J. Cancer Res. Clin. Oncol.
PUBLISHED: 05-22-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The LIM and SH3 protein 1 (LASP-1) is a focal adhesion protein, and its expression has been reported to be increased in many malignant tumors. However, the role of LASP-1 in gastric cancer is still unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of LASP-1 expression with the progression and prognosis of gastric cancer.

Tracking the coupling of two electroencephalogram series in the isoflurane and remifentanil anesthesia.

Hide Abstract
Coupling in multiple electroencephalogram (EEG) signals provides a perspective tool to understand the mechanism of brain communication. In this study, we propose a method based on permutation cross-mutual information (PCMI) to investigate whether or not the coupling between EEG series can be used to quantify the effect of specific anesthetic drugs (isoflurane and remifentanil) on brain activities.

PTTG1 promotes migration and invasion of human non-small cell lung cancer cells and is modulated by miR-186.

Hide Abstract
Deeper mechanistic understanding of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a leading cause of total cancer-related deaths, may facilitate the establishment of more effective therapeutic strategies. In this study, pituitary tumor transforming gene (PTTG1) expression was associated with lymph node and distant metastasis in patients with NSCLC and was correlated with patient survival. Reduction of PTTG1 by small interfering RNA (siRNA) inhibits the migration and invasion of NSCLC cells by mediating matrix metalloproteinases expression. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to report that PTTG1 promotes epidermal growth factor (EGF) induced the phosphorylation of LIN-11, Isl1 and MEC-3 protein domain kinase and cofilin, a critical step in cofilin recycling and actin polymerization. Additionally, EGF-induced Akt phosphorylation was suppressed through knockdown of PTTG1. Interestingly, miR-186 can modulate PTTG1 protein expression. As observed from the animal experiment in this study, knockdown of PTTG1 through siRNA and overexpression of miR-186 inhibited invasive activity of NSCLC cells toward the SCID mice lung. In summary, our in vitro and in vivo results indicate that PTTG1 modulated by miR-186 has an important function in NSCLC invasion/metastasis. This study identified both PTTG1 and miR-186 as potential anti-invasion targets for therapeutic intervention in NSCLC.

Pre-B cell leukemia homeobox 1 is associated with lupus susceptibility in mice and humans.

Hide Abstract
Sle1a.1 is part of the Sle1 susceptibility locus, which has the strongest association with lupus nephritis in the NZM2410 mouse model. In this study, we show that Sle1a.1 results in the production of activated and autoreactive CD4(+) T cells. Additionally, Sle1a.1 expression reduces the peripheral regulatory T cell pool, as well as induces a defective response of CD4(+) T cells to the retinoic acid expansion of TGF-?-induced regulatory T cells. At the molecular level, Sle1a.1 corresponds to an increased expression of a novel splice isoform of Pbx1, Pbx1-d. Pbx1-d overexpression is sufficient to induce an activated/inflammatory phenotype in Jurkat T cells and to decrease their apoptotic response to retinoic acid. PBX1-d is expressed more frequently in the CD4(+) T cells from lupus patients than from healthy controls, and its presence correlates with an increased central memory T cell population. These findings indicate that Pbx1 is a novel lupus susceptibility gene that regulates T cell activation and tolerance.

An immunostimulatory polysaccharide (SCP-IIa) from the fruit of Schisandra chinensis (Turcz.) Baill.
Int. J. Biol. Macromol.
PUBLISHED: 10-27-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A water-soluble polysaccharide named SCP-IIa was isolated from the water extract of the fruit of Schisandra chinensis (Turcz.) Baill by means of ethanol precipitation, deproteination, anion-exchange and gel-permeation chromatography. The molecular weight of SCP-IIa was ascertained via HPLC, and immuno-modulating effect was evaluated using the immunosuppressed model induced by cyclophosphamide. SCP-IIa was a homogeneous form of polysaccharide, with an average molecular weight of approximately 7700 Da. The detected parameters showed that SCP-IIa increased the thymus and spleen indices, as well as the pinocytic activity of the peritoneal macrophages in immunosuppressed mice. The splenocyte proliferation assay showed that SCP-IIa, in combination with Con A or LPS, positively affected splenocyte proliferation. Moreover, the polysaccharide promoted hemolysin formation. The results suggested that SCP-IIa was involved in immunomodulatory effects leading to the exploration for SCP-IIa as a potential immunostimulant.

pGreen-S: a clone vector bearing absence of enhanced green fluorescent protein for screening recombinants.
Anal. Biochem.
PUBLISHED: 01-26-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The bacterial cloning vector, pGreen-S, was constructed by inserting the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) gene at the XbaI restriction site of pUC18 plasmid. When expressed in Escherichia coli DH5alpha produced colonies that were an absinthe green color under daylight and strongly fluorescent green under longwave ultraviolet light. The pGreen-S vector was used to select for directional insert based on the loss of green fluorescence in recombinant colonies that was caused by the absence of EGFP. The EGFP reporter system differs from the conventional complementation of lacZ, making screening recombinants simpler, less expensive, and more effective.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
