Upregulation of SIRT1 inhibits H2O2‑induced osteoblast apoptosis via FoxO1/β‑catenin pathway

Hanlin Yao, Zhen Yao, Shaocheng Zhang, Wenjun Zhang, Wen Zhou
2018 Molecular Medicine Reports  
Osteoporosis is a disease that significantly influences life expectancy and quality in humans. Oxidative stress may stimulate bone marrow osteoclast differentiation and inhibit osteoblast (OB) differentiation. OB proliferation and differentiation are affected by the forkhead box O (FoxO)1/ β-catenin signaling pathway. The osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may be promoted by silent information regulator type-1 [sirtuin (SIRT)1]. However, the molecular mechanism of SIRT1

The present study investigated the role of SIRT1 in the FoxO1/β-catenin signaling pathway in oxidative stress and its mechanism in the osteoblastic progenitor cell line (MC3T3-E1). The results demonstrated that OB apoptosis and elevated oxidative stress in cells were simulated by H 2 O 2 , which was inhibited by moderate SIRT1 overexpression through reducing the oxidative stress. Further studies revealed that FOXO1 and β-catenin pathway activity was downregulated by SIRT1 and eventually resulted in inhibition of target genes, including the proapoptotic gene B cell lymphoma-2 interacting mediator of cell death, DNA repair gene growth arrest and DNA damage inducible protein 45 and the OB differentiation suppressor gene peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR)-γ. Furthermore, β-catenin and PPAR-γ were inhibited by SIRT1. Overall, the results of the present study suggest that moderate overexpression of SIRT1 (~3-fold of normal level) may directly or indirectly inhibit apoptosis of OBs via the FOXO1 and β-catenin signaling pathway.

2020 International Journal of Nanomedicine  
Electronic devices which mimic the functionality of biological synapses are a large step to replicate the human brain for neuromorphic computing and for numerous medical research investigations. One of the representative synaptic behaviors is paired-pulse facilitation (PPF). It has been widely investigated because it is regarded to be related to biological memory. However, plasticity behavior is only part of the human brain memory behavior. Here, we present a phenomenon which is opposite to

The research here suggests that rather than being enhanced, the phenomena of memory loss would also be possessed by such electronic devices. The device physics mechanism behind memory loss behavior was investigated. This mechanism is sustained by historical memory and degradation manufactured by device trauma to regulate characteristically stimulated origins of artificial transmission behaviors. Under the trauma of a memory device, both the signal amplitude and signal time stimulated by a pulse are lower than the first signal stimulated by a previous pulse in the PPF, representing a new scenario in the struggle for memory. In this way, more typical human brain behaviors could be simulated, including the effect of age on latency and error generation, cerebellar infarct, trauma and memory loss pharmacological actions (such as those caused by hyoscines and nitrazepam). Thus, this study developed a new approach for implementing the manner in which the brain works in semiconductor devices for improving medical research.

The results show that the design of DSP & ARM based-microprocessor protection presented in this paper is feasible; such a device has simple and reliable circuit structure and is expandable in both software and hardware. The major designing principles The fault information mainly consists of two parts, the digital part and the analogue one, when the power grid is malfunctioning. The design of dual CPU structure with ARM & DSP for microprocessor protection achieves functions separately. ARM controls the data acquisition, data conversion, logic operation, man-machine interaction and DSP completes in the system the signal processing, the data processing, communication with the computer and the printout and so on. This system adopted modular design ideals to realize accurate fault positioning. At the same time developers can add new functions expediently. Fig.1 shows the framework of the system.

Federated Learning over Wireless IoT Networks with Optimized Communication and Resources [article]

Hao Chen, Shaocheng Huang, Deyou Zhang, Ming Xiao, Mikael Skoglund, H. Vincent Poor
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To leverage massive distributed data and computation resources, machine learning in the network edge is considered to be a promising technique especially for large-scale model training. Federated learning (FL), as a paradigm of collaborative learning techniques, has obtained increasing research attention with the benefits of communication efficiency and improved data privacy. Due to the lossy communication channels and limited communication resources (e.g., bandwidth and power), it is of

Hence, we investigate the problem of jointly optimized communication efficiency and resources for FL over wireless Internet of things (IoT) networks. To reduce complexity, we divide the overall optimization problem into two sub-problems, i.e., the client scheduling problem and the resource allocation problem. To reduce the communication costs for FL in wireless IoT networks, a new client scheduling policy is proposed by reusing stale local model parameters. To maximize successful information exchange over networks, a Lagrange multiplier method is first leveraged by decoupling variables including power variables, bandwidth variables and transmission indicators. Then a linear-search based power and bandwidth allocation method is developed. Given appropriate hyper-parameters, we show that the proposed communication-efficient federated learning (CEFL) framework converges at a strong linear rate. Through extensive experiments, it is revealed that the proposed CEFL framework substantially boosts both the communication efficiency and learning performance of both training loss and test accuracy for FL over wireless IoT networks compared to a basic FL approach with uniform resource allocation.

The surface protein SdrE, a microbial surface components recognizing adhesive matrix molecule (MSCRAMM) family protein expressed on the surface of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), can recognize human complement regulator Factor H and C4BP, thus making it a potentially promising vaccine candidate. In this study, SdrE 278-591 was found to directly affect S. aureus host cell invasion. Additionally, the crystal structure of SdrE 278-591 at a resolution of 1.25 Å was established, with the

Furthermore, a putative ligand binding site located at a conserved charged groove formed by the interface between N2 and N3 domains was identified, with β2 suspected to occupy the ligand recognizing site and undergo a structural rearrangement to allow ligand binding. Overall, these findings have further contributed to the understanding of SdrE as a key factor for S. aureus invasivity and will enable a better understanding of bacterial infection processes.

Fuzzy logic systems are used to identify the unknown nonlinear system, and a fuzzy state observer is designed for estimating the unmeasured states.

Shaocheng Qu, Xiaohua Xia, Jiangfeng Zhang
2014 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control  
The dynamical behaviors of an Euler discretized sliding mode control (SMC) systems based on equivalent control strategy are studied. A periodic-2 orbit in steady state is found for the switching function of the Euler discretized SMC systems. The time steps for the switching function to converge toward the periodic-2 orbit are obtained. When the discretized SMC system is stable, it further shows that the system states of the SMC systems will also enter into some periodic-2 orbits, and these
