Ajaz Ahmad, Masood Ahmad
Edifenphos is an important organophosphate pesticide with many antifungal and anti-insecticidal properties but it may cause potential hazards to human health. In this work, we have tried to explore the binding mode of action and mechanism of edifenphos to calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA). Several experiments such as ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra and emission spectroscopy showed complex formation between edifenphos and CT-DNA and low binding constant values supporting groove binding mode. These results were further confirmed by circular dichroism (CD), CT-DNA melting studies, viscosity measurements, density functional theory and molecular docking...

Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign, histologically complex mesenchymal tumor arising mainly from the kidney and liver. The majority (80%) of these tumors arise as sporadic tumors, while 20% of them are associated with tuberous sclerosis. Extra-renal sites of AML, though rare, have been reported in literature. In this report, we describe a case of AML arising from the scrotal skin, and presenting as a scrotal mass. Although skin is the most commonly reported site after kidney and liver, scrotal skin AML presents as an intriguing mass in a region known for germ cell tumors which has been reported only once before...

The authors present the case of a patient that demonstrates resolution of delayed onset hypoglossal nerve palsy (HNP) subsequent to occipital condyle fracture following a motor vehicle accident. Decompression of the hypoglossal nerve and craniocervical fixation led to satisfactory long-term (>5 years) outcome. There is a scarcity of literature in recognizing HNPs following trauma and a lack of pathophysiological understanding to both a delayed presentation and to resolution versus persistence. This is the first report demonstrating long-term resolution of hypoglossal nerve injury following trauma to the craniocervical junction...

Public cloud storage services are becoming prevalent and myriad data sharing, archiving and collaborative services have emerged which harness the pay-as-you-go business model of public cloud. To ensure privacy and confidentiality often encrypted data is outsourced to such services, which further complicates the process of accessing relevant data by using search queries. Search over encrypted data schemes solve this problem by exploiting cryptographic primitives and secure indexing to identify outsourced data that satisfy the search criteria...

Pancreatitis with normal lipase and amylase level is a rare phenomenon. This is especially true in patient with end-stage renal disease as lipase and amylase are renally excreted. Literature review reveals previous case report of pancreatitis with normal lipase and amylase level, however, none of them occurred in the setting of end-stage renal disease. Our case is the first such reported case of pancreatitis in such setting. Here we report a 30year old male with past medical history of end-stage renal disease who presented in emergency department with acute abdominal pain...

Ostreid herpes virus causes serious disease in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas), but not in the Sydney Rock Oyster (Saccostrea glomerata). To investigate differences in disease progression, we injected oysters with double stranded RNA (dsRNA). dsRNA is known to mimic viral infection, and can evoke immune responses when Toll-like receptors detect the dsRNA, leading to the production of type 1 interferon and inflammation cytokines. The uptake and processing of dsRNA was tracked in gill and mantle tissue of Crassostrea gigas and Saccostrea glomerata after injection of fluorochrome labelled poly (I:C) dsRNA...

CD147 is a multifunctional trans-membrane glycoprotein, which is highly expressed in many cancers. However, the mechanism by which CD147 modulates cell proliferation is not fully understood. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of CD147 in cell proliferation associated with the TGF-β/Smad4 signaling pathway. Here, we used cell viability and clone formation assays in LNCaP prostate cancer cells to demonstrate that CD147 promotes cell proliferation. The luciferase assay and western blotting show that silencing CD147 using shRNA enhances transcription and expression of p21(WAF1)...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are continuously released by most cells, and they carry surface markers of their cells of origin. Found in all body fluids, EVs function as conveyers of cellular information, and evidence implicates them as markers of disease. These characteristics make EVs attractive diagnostic targets. However, detection and characterization of EVs is challenging due to their small size. We've established a method, called ExoPLA, that allows individual EVs to be detected and characterized at high specificity and sensitivity...

Resistance of cancer cells to chemotherapy remains a significant problem in oncology. Mechanisms regulating programmed cell death, including apoptosis, autophagy or necrosis, in the treatment of cancers have been extensively investigated over the last few decades. Autophagy is now emerging as an important pathway in regulating cell death or survival in cancer therapy. Recent studies demonstrated variety of natural small-molecules could induce autophagic cell death in apoptosis-resistant cancer cells, therefore, discovery of novel autophagic enhancers from natural products could be a promising strategy for treatment of chemotherapy-resistant cancer...

BACKGROUND: Detecting proteins at low concentrations in plasma can be crucial for early diagnosis. Current techniques used in clinical routine, such as sandwich ELISA, provide for protein detection because of a dependence on target recognition by pairs of antibodies, but detection of low protein concentrations is often called for. Proximity ligation assay with rolling circle amplification (PLARCA) is an adaptation of the proximity ligation assay (PLA) for analytically specific and sensitive protein detection via binding of target proteins by 3 antibodies, and signal amplification via rolling circle amplification (RCA) in microtiter wells, in a manner easily adapted to instrumentation in use in hospitals...
