PUBLISHED: 09-06-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI) or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency of arylsulfatase B(ARSB), which is required in the degradation of dermatan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. The deficiency of ARSB leads to an accumulation of dermatan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate in lysosomes and gross excretion in the urine.Few articles about clinical study and ARSB gene mutation analysis of Chinese MPS VI patients were published. This study aimed to explore the clinical features and characteristics of ARSB gene in Chinese children with MPS VI.

Hide Abstract
A great number of body mass index (BMI)/obesity-related loci have been identified by recent genome-wide association studies. The objective of the study is to investigate the associations of 11 obesity-related loci with insulin resistance (IR) in a Chinese children population. Participants included 3,468 Chinese children, aged 6-18 years. The 75 percentile (equal to 2.93) of homeostasis model assessment of IR (HOMA-IR) index was considered as the cut-off of IR. A total of 868 IR cases and 2,600 control children were identified. In age- and sex-adjusted model, only two SNPs in/near GNPDA2 and KCTD15 genes were significantly associated with risk of IR [GNPDA2 rs10938397: allelic odds ratio (OR) = 1.19, 95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.06-1.34, P = 0.003; KCTD15 rs29941: allelic OR = 1.15, 95 % CI = 1.01-1.31, P = 0.034]; genetic risk score was also significantly associated risk of IR (OR = 1.08, 95 % 1.04-1.12, P = 1.18 × 10(-4)). After additional adjustment for BMI, none remained significant. The associations of GNPDA2 rs10938397 and the SNPs in combination with risk of IR remained statistically significant after correction for multiple testing. The present study demonstrated that the associations of GNPDA2 rs10938397 and the SNPs in combination with risk of IR were statistically significant, which were dependent on BMI.

Hide Abstract
Recent genome-wide association studies have identified several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with body mass index (BMI)/obesity. In this study, we aim to examine the associations of obesity related loci with risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a children population from China. A total of 431 children with MetS and 3046 controls were identified based on the modified ATPIII definition. 11 SNPs (FTO rs9939609, MC4R rs17782313, GNPDA2 rs10938397, BDNF rs6265, FAIM2 rs7138803, NPC1 rs1805081, SEC16B rs10913469, SH2B1 rs4788102, PCSK1rs6235, KCTD15 rs29941, BAT2 rs2844479) were genotyped by TaqMan 7900. Of 11 SNPs, GNPDA2 rs10938397, BDNF rs6265, and FAIM2 rs7138803 were nominally associated with risk of MetS (GNPDA2 rs10938397: odds ratio (OR)=1.21, 95% confidence interval (CI)=1.04-1.40, P=0.016; BDNF rs6265: OR=1.19, 95% CI=1.03-1.39, P=0.021; FAIM2 rs7138803: OR=1.20, 95% CI=1.02-1.40, P=0.025); genetic risk score (GRS) was significantly associated with risk of MetS (OR=1.09, 95% CI=1.04-1.15, P=5.26×10(-4)). After further adjustment for BMI, none of SNPs were associated with risk of MetS (all P>0.05); the association between GRS and risk of MetS remained nominally (OR=1.02, 95%CI=0.96-1.08, P=0.557). However, after correction for multiple testing, only GRS was statistically associated with risk of MetS in the model without adjustment for BMI. The present study demonstrated that there were nominal associations of GNPDA2 rs10938397, BDNF rs6265, and FAIM2 rs7138803 with risk of MetS. The SNPs in combination have a significant effect on risk of MetS among Chinese children. These associations above were mediated by adiposity.

Hide Abstract
Genome-wide association (GWA) studies have identified many candidate genes that are associated with blood lipid and lipoprotein concentrations. In this study, we want to know whether the results from European for lipid-related single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are generalizable to Chinese children. We genotyped seven SNPs in Chinese school-age children (n = 3,503) and assessed the associations of these SNPs with lipids profiles and dyslipidemia. After false discovery rate correction, of the seven SNPs, six (rs2144300, p ~ 9.30 × 10(-3); rs1260333, p ~ 6.20 × 10(-11); rs1260326, p ~ 8.73 × 10(-11); rs10105606, p ~ 0.010; rs1748195, p ~ 0.016 and rs964184, p ~ 2.33 × 10(-13)) showed strong association with triglycerides. Three SNPs (rs1260333, p ~ 3.30 × 10(-3); rs1260326, p ~ 4.39 × 10(-3) and rs2954029, p ~ 6.36 × 10(-4)) showed strong association with total cholesterol. Two SNPs (rs10105606, p ~ 6.66 × 10(-4) and rs1748195, p ~ 2.55 × 10(-3)) showed strong association with high density lipoprotein cholesterol. Four SNPs (rs1260333, p ~ 0.017; rs1260326, p ~ 0.013; rs2954029, p ~ 1.09 × 10(-3) and rs964184, p ~ 5.51 × 10(-3)) showed strong association with low density lipoprotein cholesterol. There were significant associations between rs1260333 (OR is 0.82, 95 % CI 0.74-0.92, p ~ 3.96 × 10(-4)), rs1260326 (OR is 0.82, 95 % CI 0.74-0.92, p ~ 5.31 × 10(-4)), and rs964184 (OR is 1.36, 95 % CI 1.20-1.55, p ~ 1.89 × 10(-6)) and dyslipidemia. These SNPs generated strong combined effects on lipid profiles and dyslipidemia. Our study demonstrates that SNPs associated with lipids from European GWA studies also play roles in Chinese children, which broadened the understanding of lipids metabolism.

Hide Abstract
Mucopolysaccharidosis IVA (MPS IVA) is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder caused by the deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase (GALNS). Molecular mutational analysis was performed by PCR product sequencing for fourteen exons and exon-intron boundaries of GALNS gene in 21 patients from 19 unrelated families with severe MPS IVA in South China. We identified fifteen different mutations, including 10 reported mutations (p.P125L, p.G290S, p.M318R, p.G340D, p.L366P, p.R386C, p.A392V, c.1243-1G>C, p.L440RfsX54 and p.X523E) and five novel mutations (p.N177S, p.G290R, p.F306S, p.W403_T404delinsCS, p.W520X). All five novel mutations were inherited from parents of the patients and not found in 100 normal control alleles. Three mutations, p.M318R, p.L366P and p.R386C were common, accounting for 36.8% of mutant alleles investigated. One patient homozygous of p.A392V and the other two unrelated patients homozygous of p.L366P presented classical disease course. The results show that the GALNS gene has a different mutational spectrum in South China as compared to other regions. The p.A392V and p.L366P mutations were associated with severe phenotype of MPS IVA.

Hide Abstract
Measurement of carnitine and acylcarnitines in plasma is important in diagnosis of fatty acid ?-oxidation disorders and organic acidemia. The usual method uses flow injection tandem mass spectrometry (FIA-MS/MS), which has limitations. A rapid and more accurate method was developed to be used for high-risk screening and diagnosis. Carnitine and acylcarnitines were separated by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) without derivatization and detected with a QTRAP MS/MS System. Total analysis time was 9.0min. The imprecision of within- and between-run were less than 6% and 17%, respectively. Recoveries were in the range of 85-110% at three concentrations. Some acylcarnitine isomers could be separated, such as dicarboxylic and hydroxyl acylcarnitines. The method could also separate interferent to avoid false positive results. 216 normal samples and 116 patient samples were detected with the validated method, and 49 patients were identified with fatty acid oxidation disorders or organic acidemias.

Hide Abstract
Childhood obesity is a complex disease that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. The authors aim was to determine whether sedentary behavior and physical activity modulate the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and obesity risk in Chinese children. A population-based study was carried out in 2,848 children (6-18 years of age) in Beijing, China, in 2004. It included 1,229 obese cases and 1,619 normal-weight controls. Lifestyle information was collected through the use of a validated questionnaire, and 6 SNPs were genotyped. The association between the 6 SNPs and obesity risk was modulated by sedentary behavior and physical activity. A higher risk of obesity was observed in children who carried the high-risk alleles of the 6 SNPs and engaged in sedentary behavior ?2 hours/day outside of school or participated in low or moderate physical activity. Most notably, the association between 5 SNPs (Fas apoptotic inhibitory molecule 2 rs7138803, Niemann-Pick disease, type C1 rs1805081, fat mass- and obesity-associated gene rs6499640, melanocortin 4 receptor gene rs17782313, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor rs6265) and obesity risk was only observed in children who had moderate-to-low physical activity levels or engaged in sedentary behavior, regardless of which risk alleles they carried. The results indicated that encouraging less sedentary behavior and higher levels of physical activity could alleviate the influence of risk alleles on genetic predisposition to childhood obesity, thereby serving as a promising prevention strategy.

Hide Abstract
A novel ultrasonic-modified MnO(x)/TiO(2) catalyst was prepared and compared with two different kinds of MnO(x)/TiO(2) catalysts in the process of low-temperature selective catalytic reduction of NO with NH(3). The physicochemical properties of the catalysts were studied by using various characterization techniques, such as Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface measurement, X-ray diffraction (XRD), high-resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM), and in situ Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (in situ FT-IR). The ultrasonic-modified process introduced ultrasound in the solution impregnation step of traditional impregnation method for MnO(x)/TiO(2) catalyst preparation. In this study, ultrasonic process significantly improved the dispersion behavior and surface acid property of manganese oxide on TiO(2) as well as the catalytic activity, especially at temperature below 120°C. The NO conversion could reach 90% at 100°C. For the novel ultrasonic-modified catalyst, the combination analysis of XRD and HRTEM confirmed that manganese oxide was in a highly dispersed state and Ti and Mn had strong interaction. Furthermore, in situ FT-IR studies revealed that there were significant amounts of Lewis acidity and high Mn atom concentration on the surface of the novel catalysts.

Childhood obesity strongly predisposes to some adult diseases. Recently, genome-wide association (GWA) studies in Caucasians identified multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with BMI and obesity. The associations of those SNPs with BMI and obesity among other ethnicities are not fully described, especially in children. Among those previously identified SNPs, we selected six (rs7138803, rs1805081, rs6499640, rs17782313, rs6265, and rs10938397, in or near obesity-related genes FAIM2, NPC1, FTO, MC4R, BDNF, and GNPDA2, respectively) because of the relatively high minor allele frequencies in Chinese individuals and tested the associations of the SNPs with BMI and obesity in Chinese children.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A transient increase in insulin resistance (IR) is a component of puberty. We investigated the impact of body composition and adipokines on IR during puberty in Chinese children. This study included 3223 schoolchildren aged 6-18 years. IR was calculated using homeostasis model assessment (HOMA-IR). We revealed that body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference increased gradually during puberty in both genders, while fat-mass percentage (FAT%) increased steadily only in girls. Change of leptin showed striking sexual dimorphisms: in girls leptin increased steadily during puberty, whereas in boys, after a transient rise at the beginning of puberty, leptin declined by Tanner staging even in those overweight or obese. Inversely, adiponectin level decreased significantly during puberty. In both genders, HOMA-IR started to increase at the beginning of puberty, peaked in the middle, and revised at late puberty in overweight/obesity boys while it stayed high till the end of puberty in girls and normal weight boys. Multivariate regression analysis revealed that leptin presented a stronger indicator of HOMA-IR than anthropometric measures during puberty. Our results demonstrated that gender-specific FAT% and leptin changed with pubertal development. Leptin emerged as a stronger predictor of IR than traditional anthropometric indices, suggesting a prominent role in the development of pubertal IR.

Hide Abstract
Previous studies have suggested that common variants in fat mass- and obesity-associated (FTO) gene are associated with body mass index (BMI) and the risk of obesity. Since obesity plays an important role in the etiology of high blood pressure (HBP), we aim to investigate the association between obesity and HBP in a population with different variants of the FTO gene. A total of 3,494 children (1,775 boys, 50.8 %) aged 6-18 years were recruited for measuring pubertal status, BMI and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The single nucleotide polymorphism rs9939609 of the FTO gene was genotyped. The blood pressure levels increased by 1.4, 1.5 and 1.8 mmHg for systolic blood pressure and 0.8, 0.9 and 1.2 mmHg for diastolic blood pressure per 1-unit BMI increase in subjects carrying TT, TA and AA genotypes, respectively. After stratifying for FTO rs9939609 genotypes (TT, TA and AA), the odds ratios (95 % confidence intervals) of HBP in obese versus non-obese children were 4.26 (3.18-5.71), 5.13 (2.96-8.90) and 10.37 (1.59-67.43), respectively, with adjustment for age, gender and pubertal status. The FTO rs9939609 SNP modifies the effect of obesity on HBP in Chinese children, with obese ones carrying the AA homozygous genotype of the FTO rs9939609 having the highest risk of developing HBP.

Data about metabolic syndrome (MetS) in children is limited in China. We aimed to assess the prevalence of MetS related components, and their association with obesity. Data were collected as part of a representative study on MetS among 19593 children, aged 6-18 years old in Beijing. General obesity was assessed by body mass index (BMI) and central obesity by waist circumference. Finger capillary blood tests were used to assess triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC) and impaired fasting glucose (IFG). Vein blood samples were collected from a subsample of 3814 children aged 10-18 years to classify MetS. MetS was defined according to the International Diabetes Federation 2007 definition. The associations between MetS related components and the degree and type of obesity were tested using logistic regression models. The prevalence of overweight, obesity, high blood pressure, elevated TG, TC and IFG were 13.6%, 5.8%, 8.5%, 8.8%, 1.2% and 2.5%, respectively. Compared with normal weight children, overweight and obese children were more likely to have other MetS related components. In the subsample of 3814 children aged 10-18 years, the prevalence of MetS was much higher in obese subjects than in their normal weight counterparts (27.6% vs. 0.2%). Children with both general and central obesity had the highest prevalence of MetS. Compared with normal weight children, overweight and obese children were more likely to have MetS (overweight: OR=67.33, 95%CI=21.32-212.61; obesity: OR=249.99, 95% CI=79.51-785.98). Prevalence of MetS related components has reached high level among Beijing children who were overweight or obese. The association between metabolic disorders and obesity was strong.

We examined the associations of the SNPs (rs11066001 and rs3782886) in BRAP with metabolic syndrome (MetS), which is a strong predictor of cardiovascular disease, and potential associations between these SNPs and factors related to inflammation. There were significant associations of both the SNPs with MetS [rs11066001, odds ratio (OR) 0.70, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.51-0.96, p = 0.028; rs3782886, OR 0.69, 95% CI 0.50-0.94, p = 0.020] under a dominant model after age and gender adjustment. Both SNPs were significantly associated with waist circumference, plasma glucose, glycated haemoglobin, triglycerides and nonesterified fatty acid. Our data provide evidence that the SNPs (rs11066001 and rs3782886) in BRAP decrease the risk of MetS, and associations of the SNPs with various components of MetS are different. Moreover, there are significant associations of both the SNPs with nonesterified fatty acid that could be involved in the inflammatory activity of electronegative low-density lipoprotein.

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.
