This study was to evaluate the expression of miR-129-5p in non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) patients and its clinical value and explore its regulatory effect on insulin resistance (IR). A total of 117 NAFLD patients and 110 healthy controls were included. The levels of miR-129-5p were detected by qRT-PCR. To assess the diagnostic value of miR-129-5p for NAFLD, the receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) was established. C57Bl/6 mice were supplied with high-fat diet to establish NAFLD model. Intraperitoneal insulin tolerance test (IPITT) was carried out to evaluate the effect of miR-129-5p on IR in NAFLD animal model. miR-129-5p was highly expressed in the serum of NAFLD patients, and patients with HOMA-IR ≥2.5 had higher level of miR-129-5p than those with HOMA-IR <2.5. miR-129-5p had the ability to differentiate NAFLD patients from healthy individuals and might be associated with the development of IR. Serum miR-129-5p was positively correlated with the levels of HOMA-IR, BMI, total cholesterol (TC), and triglyceride (TG) in NAFLD patients. Downregulation of miR-129-5p regulates lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity in NAFLD mice model. MiR-129-5p was upregulated in NAFLD patients and might be a potential diagnostic ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
