Youyou Li, Hongxing Li, Wenjuan Xing, Jianwei Li, Ruikai Du, Dengchao Cao, Yinbo Wang, Xueyi Yang, Guohui Zhong, Yinlong Zhao, Weijia Sun, Caizhi Liu, Xingcheng Gao, Yeheng Li, Zizhong Liu, Xiaoyan Jin, Dingsheng Zhao, Yingjun Tan, Yanqing Wang, Shujuan Liu, Min Yuan, Jinping Song, Yan-Zhong Chang, Feng Gao, Shukuan Ling, Yingxian Li,

Vascular remodeling is a prominent trait during the development of hypertension, attributable to the phenotypic transition of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Increasing studies demonstrate that microRNA plays an important role in this process. Here, we surprisingly found that smooth muscle cell-specific miR-214 knockout (miR-214 cKO) significantly alleviates angiotensin II ... Read more >>

The mechanosensitive Piezo1 channel is required for bone formation.

Weijia Sun, Shaopeng Chi, Yuheng Li, Shukuan Ling, Yingjun Tan, Youjia Xu, Fan Jiang, Jianwei Li, Caizhi Liu, Guohui Zhong, Dengchao Cao, Xiaoyan Jin, Dingsheng Zhao, Xingcheng Gao, Zizhong Liu, Bailong Xiao, Yingxian Li,

Mechanical load of the skeleton system is essential for the development, growth, and maintenance of bone. However, the molecular mechanism by which mechanical stimuli are converted into osteogenesis and bone formation remains unclear. Here we report that Piezo1, a bona fide mechanotransducer that is critical for various biological processes, plays ... Read more >>

Hematopoietic stem cells and lineage cells undergo dynamic alterations under microgravity and recovery conditions.

Dengchao Cao, Jinping Song, Shukuan Ling, Shuaishuai Niu, Liang Lu, Zhengzhi Cui, Yuheng Li, Shanshan Hao, Guohui Zhong, Zhihong Qi, Weijia Sun, Xinxin Yuan, Hongxing Li, Dingsheng Zhao, Xiaoyan Jin, Caizhi Liu, Xiaorui Wu, Guanghan Kan, Hongqing Cao, Youmin Kang, Shuyang Yu, Yingxian Li,

Spaceflight leads to health risks including bone demineralization, skeletal muscle atrophy, cardiovascular dysfunction, and disorders of almost all physiologic systems. However, the impacts of microgravity on blood lineage cells and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in vivo are largely unknown. In this study, we analyzed peripheral blood samples from 6 astronauts ...

Lrp5 and Lrp6 are required for maintaining self-renewal and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells.

Juanjuan Liu, Zhengzhi Cui, Fang Wang, Yingpeng Yao, Guotao Yu, Jingjing Liu, Dengchao Cao, Shuaishuai Niu, Menghao You, Zhen Sun, Di Lian, Tianyan Zhao, Youmin Kang, Yaofeng Zhao, Hai-Hui Xue, Shuyang Yu,

Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) have the capacity for self-renewal to maintain the HSCs' pool and the ability for multilineage differentiation, which are responsible for sustained production of multiple blood lineages. The regulation of HSC development is controlled precisely by complex signal networks and hematopoietic microenvironment, which has been termed the ... Read more >>

Panax quinquefolium saponin attenuates cardiac remodeling induced by simulated microgravity.

Huiyuan Sun, Shukuan Ling, Dingsheng Zhao, Yang Li, Guohui Zhong, Ming Guo, Yuheng Li, Lin Yang, Jianpeng Du, Yuezhang Zhou, Jianwei Li, Shuai Liang, Yanqing Wang, Xingcheng Gao, Yating Zhang, Dengchao Cao, Caizhi Liu, Xiaoyan Jin, Zizhong Liu, Weijia Sun, Xiaorui Wu, Jinping Song, Yingxian Li, Dazhuo Shi,

<h4>Background</h4>Cardiac atrophy and reduced cardiac distensibility have been reported following space flight. Cardiac function is correspondingly regulated in response to changes in loading conditions. Panax quinquefolium saponin (PQS) improves ventricular remodeling after acute myocardial infarction by alleviating endoplasmic reticulum stress and Ca<sup>2+</sup>overload. However, whether PQS can ameliorate cardiac atrophy following ... Read more >>
