Plaque erosion (PE) has been considered a secondary pathogenesis of ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) following plaque rupture (PR). Previous studies demonstrated that they had different demographic and histology characteristics and need different treatment strategy. But there are few non-invasive plasma biomarkers for distinguishing them. The present study aimed to identify non-invasive predictive biomarkers for PE and PR in patients with STEMI.Methods and Results:A total 108 patients were recruited and grouped into a PE group (n=36), a PR group (n=36), and an unstable angina pectoris (UAP) (n=36) group for analysis. A 9-plex tandem mass tag (TMT)-based proteomics was used to compare plasma protein profiles of PE, PR, and UAP. In total, 36 significant differential proteins (DPs) were identified among groups, 10 of which were screened out using bio-information analysis and validated with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The relationship of angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging data and the 10 target DPs was analyzed statistically. Logistic regression showed elevated collagen type VI α-2 chain (COL6A2) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), and decreased fermitin family homolog 3 ...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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

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.
