Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in numerous biological processes, including epigenetic regulation, cell-cycle control, and transcriptional/translational regulation of gene expression. Differential expression of lncRNAs and disruption of the regulatory processes are recognized as critical steps in cancer development. The role of lncRNAs in hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is not well understood. Here we analyzed the expression of 135 lncRNAs in plasma samples of 82 HBV patients (classified as chronic patients, inactive carriers, or resolved patients) at diagnosis and at 12 months of treatment in relation to control group (81 healthy volunteers)...

Beta-adrenergic receptors (β-ARs) play a critical role in many diseases. Quantification of β-AR density may have clinical implications in terms of assessing disease severity and identifying patients who could potentially benefit from beta-blocker therapy. Classical methods for β-AR quantification are based on labor-intensive and time-consuming radioligand binding assays. Here, we report optimization of a flow cytometry-based method utilizing a biotinylated β-AR ligand alprenolol as a probe and use of this method to quantify relative receptor expression in healthy controls (HC)...

Didem Demirbas, William J Brucker, Gerard T Berry
The liver is one of the most essential organs in metabolism and is responsible for metabolizing a wide variety of molecules from amino acids to sugars. Although it is responsible for many essential metabolic processes, it is one of the most severely affected by metabolic disease because, in many cases, it is the first to be exposed to the toxic intermediates. The metabolism of galactose, fructose, and tyrosine involve the liver and although there are systemic findings in metabolic disease involved with these substrates, severe hepatopathy is a common presenting aspect of galactosemia, hereditary fructose intolerance, and tyrosinemia type I...
