The present invention relates to the preparation methods and applications of biodegradable zinc-copper alloys, which can be applied to medical implant materials. The alloy of present invention is mainly composed of copper (1-10 wt. %), the balance of zinc and trace impurity elements. As-cast alloy ingot is homogenized and then hot processed to refine microstructure. The mechanical properties of the alloys are improved due to the refined microstructure. The alloys are capable of being further fabricated into micro-tubes, wires and plates. There are many advantages of these Zn alloys such as excellent mechanical properties, easy to process, appropriate corrosion resistance, good biocompatibility and so on, which correspondingly can be applied to many kinds of biodegradable medical implant devices. With excellent mechanical properties, good biocompatibility and degrading completely in 6-18 months, the Zn alloys meet the requirements of implant materials for mechanical properties and biosafety.

This invention provides a thin film transistor and a manufacturing method thereof, an array substrate, and a display apparatus. This thin film transistor comprises an organic semiconductor layer and a source drain electrode layer, and further comprises a metal oxide insulating layer, wherein the metal oxide insulating layer is provided between the organic semiconductor layer and the source drain electrode layer and has a work function higher than that of the source drain electrode layer. In the thin film transistor provided by this invention, the metal oxide insulating layer having a higher work function can generate an interface dipole barrier so as to reduce the difficulty for the carriers in the source drain electrode to enter the organic semiconductor layer and thereby it is possible to decrease the contact resistance between the source drain electrode layer and the semiconductor layer and improve electrical properties of the thin film transistor.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a heterogeneous autoimmune disease with a strong genetic component characterized by autoantibody production and a type I interferon signature. Here we report a missense variant (g.74779296G>A; p.Arg90His) in NCF1, encoding the p47phox subunit of the phagocyte NADPH oxidase (NOX2), as the putative underlying causal variant that drives a strong SLE-associated signal detected by the Immunochip in the GTF2IRD1–GTF2I region at 7q11.23 with a complex genomic structure. We show that the p.Arg90His substitution, which is reported to cause reduced reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, predisposes to SLE (odds ratio (OR) = 3.47 in Asians (Pmeta = 3.1 × 10-104), OR = 2.61 in European Americans, OR = 2.02 in African Americans) and other autoimmune diseases, including primary Sjögren's syndrome (OR = 2.45 in Chinese, OR = 2.35 in European Americans) and rheumatoid arthritis (OR = 1.65 in Koreans). Additionally, decreased and increased copy numbers of NCF1 predispose to and protect against SLE, respectively. Our data highlight the pathogenic role of reduced NOX2-derived ROS levels in autoimmune diseases. © 2017 Nature Publishing Group, a division of Macmillan Publishers Limited. All Rights Reserved.

The gut microbiota has been linked with chronic diseases such as obesity in humans. However, the demonstration of causality between constituents of the microbiota and specific diseases remains an important challenge in the field. In this Opinion article, using Koch's postulates as a conceptual framework, I explore the chain of causation from alterations in the gut microbiota, particularly of the endotoxin-producing members, to the development of obesity in both rodents and humans. I then propose a strategy for identifying the causative agents of obesity in the human microbiota through a combination of microbiome-wide association studies, mechanistic analysis of host responses and the reproduction of diseases in gnotobiotic animals. © 2013 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Acidosis is a common feature of many neuronal diseases and often accompanied with adverse consequences such as pain and neuronal injury. Before the discovery of acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs), protons were usually considered as a modulator of other ion channels, such as voltage-gated calcium channels, N-methyl-D-aspartate, and γ-amino butyric acid(A) receptor channels. Accordingly, the functional effects of acidosis were considered as consequences of modulations of these channels. Since the first cloning of ASICs in 1997, the conventional view on acidosis-mediated pain and cell injury has been dramatically changed. To date, ASICs, which are directly activated by extracellular protons, are shown to mediate most of the acidosis-associated physiological and pathological functions. For example, ASIC1a channels are reported to mediate acidosis-induced ischemic neuronal death. In this article, we will review the possible mechanisms that underlie ASIC1a channel-mediated neuronal death and discuss ASIC1a channel modulators involved in this process.
