Establishment of recombineering genome editing system in Paraburkholderia megapolitana empowers activation of silent biosynthetic gene clusters.

Wentao Zheng, Xue Wang, Haibo Zhou, Youming Zhang, Aiying Li, Xiaoying Bian,

The Burkholderiales are an emerging source of bioactive natural products. Their genomes contain a large number of cryptic biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs), indicating great potential for novel structures. However, the lack of genetic tools for the most of Burkholderiales strains restricts the mining of these cryptic BGCs. We previously discovered ... Read more >>

Small bowel perforation secondary to foreign body ingestion mimicking acute appendicitis: Case report.

Tantan Ma, Wentao Zheng, Beiying An, Yan Xia, Geng Chen,

RATIONALE:Foreign body ingestion is often encountered in clinical practice; however, intestinal perforation owing to foreign body ingestion is rare. PATIENT CONCERNS:Here, we present the cases of 2 patients who accidentally swallowed foreign bodies and later presented with pain in the right lower abdominal quadrant. DIAGNOSES:Both patients were initially diagnosed with ... Read more >>

Single-Stranded DNA-Binding Protein and Exogenous RecBCD Inhibitors Enhance Phage-Derived Homologous Recombination in Pseudomonas.

Jia Yin, Wentao Zheng, Yunsheng Gao, Chanjuan Jiang, Hongbo Shi, Xiaotong Diao, Shanshan Li, Hanna Chen, Hailong Wang, Ruijuan Li, Aiying Li, Liqiu Xia, Yulong Yin, A Francis Stewart, Youming Zhang, Jun Fu,

The limited efficiency of the available tools for genetic manipulation of Pseudomonas limits fundamental research and utilization of this genus. We explored the properties of a lambda Red-like operon (BAS) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa phage Ab31 and a Rac bacteriophage RecET-like operon (RecTEPsy) from Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae B728a. Compared with ... Read more >>

Thallium contamination in farmlands and common vegetables in a pyrite mining city and potential health risks.

Juan Liu, Nuo Li, Weilong Zhang, Xudong Wei, Daniel C W Tsang, Yubing Sun, Xuwen Luo, Zhi'an Bao, Wentao Zheng, Jin Wang, Guoliang Xu, Liping Hou, Yongheng Chen, Yuexing Feng,

Thallium (Tl) is a trace metal of severe toxicity. Its health concerns via consumption of contaminated vegetables have often been overlooked or underestimated. This study was designed to gain insight into the actual level and distribution characteristics of Tl and metal (loid)s (Pb, Cd, Cr, Sb, Mn, Cu, Zn, Ni, ... Read more >>

Discovery of recombinases enables genome mining of cryptic biosynthetic gene clusters in Burkholderiales species.

Xue Wang, Haibo Zhou, Hanna Chen, Xiaoshu Jing, Wentao Zheng, Ruijuan Li, Tao Sun, Jiaqi Liu, Jun Fu, Liujie Huo, Yue-Zhong Li, Yuemao Shen, Xiaoming Ding, Rolf Müller, Xiaoying Bian, Youming Zhang,

Bacterial genomes encode numerous cryptic biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) that represent a largely untapped source of drugs or pesticides. Mining of the cryptic products is limited by the unavailability of streamlined genetic tools in native producers. Precise genome engineering using bacteriophage recombinases is particularly useful for genome mining. However, recombinases ... Read more >>

Altered expression of regulatory T and Th17 cells in murine bronchial asthma.

Jianbo Zhu, Xiaoying Liu, Wenxia Wang, Xiuhe Ouyang, Wentao Zheng, Qingyuan Wang,

Alteration of the careful balance of the ratio of Th1/Th2 cell subsets impacts immune function and plays an important role in the pathogenesis of asthma. There is little research on the impact of changes on the balance of the regulatory T (Treg)/Th17 subset ratio and its possible repercussions for asthma. ... Read more >>

Enzymatic changes in myosin regulatory proteins may explain vasoplegia in terminally ill patients with sepsis.

Wentao Zheng, Yong Kou, Feng-lan Gao, Xiu-he Ouyang,

The current study was conducted with the hypothesis that failure of maintenance of the vascular tone may be central to failure of the peripheral circulation and spiralling down of blood pressure in sepsis. Namely, we examined the balance between expression of myosin light chain (MLC) phosphatase and kinase, enzymes that ... Read more >>

Analysis of space-dependent characteristics of motion-compensated frame differences based on a statistical motion distribution model.

Wentao Zheng, Yoshiaki Shishikui, Masahide Naemura, Yasuaki Kanatsugu, Susumu Itoh,

Although it has been observed that motion-compensated frame differences increase toward block boundaries and overlapped block motion compensation (OBMC) has been shown to provide reduced blocking artifacts as well as improved prediction accuracy, there is almost no satisfactory theoretical basis that clearly interprets the space-dependent characteristics of motion-compensated frame differences, ...
