The purpose of this study was to detect the expression level of PVT1 in the serum of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients, and to explore the clinical significance of PVT1 in CAD. A total of 200 CAD patients and 200 healthy controls in the same period were included. The serum level of PVT1 in every subject was detected. Then, the correlation between PVT1 level and Gensini score in CAD patients was analyzed by Spearman correlation test. Finally, multivariable Logistic regression test was conducted to assess risk factors influencing coronary atherosclerosis disease. It was found that PVT1 was highly expressed in the serum of CAD patients and its level was correlated with Gensini score (r=0.761, p=0.023). Besides, multivariable Logistic regression test obtained that PVT1 was the risk factor influencing coronary atherosclerosis disease (crude OR = 2.074, 95% CI: 1.642-3.529; adjusted OR = 1.762, 95% CI: 1.382-2.096). Serum level of PVT1 helps to distinguish mild and severe CAD. Meanwhile, PVT1 is an independent risk factor influencing the development of coronary atherosclerosis disease.

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.

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.
