A 62-year-old man was referred for percutaneous coronary intervention of a severe circumflex lesion. The guidewire became entangled in the previously implanted left anterior descending artery stent. The left main was engaged with a second guide catheter, followed by balloon dilations, various microcatheters, and laser atherectomy. The wire eventually fractured without protruding into the aorta. The circumflex lesion was stented with two stents, followed by left main stenting that covered the fragment. Caution should be used when wiring through stents; wire fracture can be treated with stent implantation, as long as the wire fragment does not protrude into the aorta...

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and fatal interstitial pneumonia. The disease pathophysiology is poorly understood and the etiology remains unclear. Recent advances have generated new therapies and improved knowledge of the natural history of IPF. These gains have been brokered by advances in technology and improved insight into the role of various genes in mediating disease, but gene expression and protein levels do not always correlate. Thus, in this paper we apply a novel large scale high throughput aptamer approach to identify more than 1100 proteins in the peripheral blood of well-characterized IPF patients and normal volunteers...

The problem of performing many-body decompositions of energy is considered in the case when BSSE corrections are also performed. It is discussed that the two different schemes that have been proposed go back to the two different interpretations of the original Boys-Bernardi counterpoise correction scheme. It is argued that from the physical point of view the ``hierarchical" scheme of Valiron and Mayer should be preferred, and not the scheme recently discussed by Ouyang and Bettens, because it permits the energy of the individual monomers and all the two-body, three-body etc...

Tumor protein D52 (TPD52), a proto-oncogene is overexpressed in a variety of epithelial carcinomas and plays an important role in cell proliferation, migration and cell death. In the present study we found that the treatment of IMR-32 neuroblastoma (NB) cells with retinoic acid (RA) stimulates an increase in expression of TPD52. TPD52 expression is detectable after 72 h, can be maintained till differentiation of NB cells suggesting that TPD52 is involved in differentiation. Here, we demonstrate that TPD52 is essential for RA to promote differentiation of NB cells...

The evolution of the structure of liquid water-methanol mixtures as a function of temperature has been studied by molecular dynamics simulations, with a focus on hydrogen bonding. The combination of the OPLS-AA (all atom) potential model of methanol and the widely used SPC/E water model has provided excellent agreement with measured X-ray diffraction data over the temperature range between 298 and 213 K, for mixtures with methanol molar fractions of 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4. Hydrogen bonds (HB-s) have been identified via a combined geometric/energetic, as well as via a purely geometric definition...

Aims Extracellular matrix remodelling may influence atherosclerotic progression and plaque stability. We hypothesized that evaluation of extracellular matrix markers, with potentially different roles during atherogenesis, could provide information on underlying mechanisms and risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in apparently healthy individuals. Methods We conducted a case-control study nested within the population-based HUNT2 cohort in Norway. A total of 58,761 men and women, free of known cardiovascular disease, were followed for a first MI...

Glycine (Gly) residues are particularly susceptible to hydrogen abstraction; which results in the formation of the capto-dative stabilized Cα-centered Gly radical (GLR) on the protein backbone. We examined the effect of GLR formation on the structure of the Trp cage; tryptophan zipper; and the villin headpiece; three fast-folding and stable miniproteins; using all-atom (OPLS-AA) molecular dynamics simulations. Radicalization changes the conformation of the GLR residue and affects both neighboring residues but did not affect the stability of the Trp zipper...

This study demonstrates a one-step synthesis for the preparation of both adenosine monophosphate (AMP)-stabilized colloidal gold nanoparticles (AMP-Au NPs) and fluorescent gold nanoclusters (AMP-Au NCs). The dominant role of AMP:AuCl4(-) molar ratios in the formation of diverse nanosized Au products was proved. The size, the structure and the unique structure-dependent optical properties of the NPs and NCs were determined based on the results of numerous spectroscopic (UV-vis, fluorescence, infrared, x-ray photoelectron), high resolution electron microscopy (HRTEM) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) techniques...

Epoxyazadiradione (1), a major compound derived from Neem oil, showed modest anti-plasmodial activity against CQ-resistant and CQ-sensitive strains of the most virulent human malaria parasite P. falciparum. A series of analogues were synthesized by modification of the key structural moieties of this high yield natural product. Out of the library of all compounds tested, compounds 3c and 3g have showed modest anti-plasmodial activity against CQ-sensitive (IC50 2.8 ± 0.29 μM and 1.5 ± 0.01 μM) and CQ-resistant strains (IC50 1...

Placental vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) gene and endoglin gene are both overexpressed in placental samples obtained from pregnancies with intrauterine growth restriction compared to normal pregnancies. In the background of these changes a mechanism can be supposed, in which the increased endoglin activity in intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) leads to impaired placental circulation through an antioangiogenetic effect. This results in the development of placental vascular dysfunction and chronic fetal hypoxia...

Children diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma have poor prognosis which stimulates efforts to broaden therapies of the neoplasm. GD2-ganglioside (GD2) marks neuroblastoma cells and is a target for monoclonal antibodies. We have recently shown that some neuroblastoma cell lines are sensitive to direct cytotoxicity of the anti-GD2 mouse monoclonal antibody 14G2a (mAb). For IMR-32 and LA-N-1 cell lines, treatment with the 14G2a mAb induced evident changes in appearance such as cell rounding, aggregation, loose contact with culture plastic, or detachment...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are cell-derived, membranous nanoparticles that mediate intercellular communication by transferring biomolecules, including proteins and RNA, between cells. As a result of their suggested natural capability to functionally deliver RNA, EVs may be harnessed as therapeutic RNA carriers. One major limitation for their translation to therapeutic use is the lack of an efficient, robust, and scalable method to load EVs with RNA molecules of interest. Here, we evaluated and optimized methods to load EVs with cholesterol-conjugated small interfering RNAs (cc-siRNAs) by systematic evaluation of the influence of key parameters, including incubation time, volume, temperature, and EV:cc-siRNA ratio...

Aerosol drugs are effectively used to treat chronic respiratory diseases. The efficiency of the therapy depends also on the amount and distribution of drug deposited within the airways. The objective of this study is to apply numerical techniques to analyse the effect of the duration of breath-hold after the inhalation of six different commercialized dry powder drugs on their lung deposition. For this purpose a computational airway deposition model has been adapted and validated to the special case of therapeutic aerosols...

BACKGROUND: Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are synthesized by plants, fungi, bacteria, and archaea with plants being the major source of these amino acids in animal diets. Acetolactate synthase (ALS) is the first enzyme in the BCAA synthesis pathway. Although the functional contribution of ALS to BCAA biosynthesis has been extensively characterized, a comprehensive understanding of the regulation of this pathway at the molecular level is still lacking. RESULTS: To characterize the regulatory processes governing ALS activity we utilized several complementary approaches...

High amount of the valuable lignan pinoresinol (PR) was determined in Carduus nutans fruit (7.8mg/g) for the first time. A preparative separation method using two consecutive, identical steps of centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) was developed in order (i) to isolate PR and (ii) to subsequently isolate PR and its 7' epimer epipinoresinol (EPR) simultaneously after an optimized acid treatment which resulted in PR epimerization forming equal amounts of PR and EPR, from C. nutans fruit. As optimal conditions, a two-phase solvent system consisting of methyl tert-butyl ether:acetone:water (4:3:3, v/v/v) for CPC separation, and an acid treatment performed at 50°C for 30min for the epimerization were applied...

We investigated presence of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in the Republic of Serbia. Seven out of 88 samples (8%) tested positive, all belonging to the frog genus Pelophylax. Two positive sites were located directly on the Danube River. The Danube River could be an important disease corridor, and distribution of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis along this river should be further explored.

The aim of this study was to develop a sensitive, reliable and high-throughput liquid chromatography - electrospray ionization - mass spectrometric (LC-ESI-MS/MS) method for the simultaneous quantitation of cortisol and cortisone in human saliva. Derivatization with 2-hydrazino-1-methylpyridine (HMP) was one of the most challenging aspects of the method development. The reagent was reacting with cortisol and cortisone at 60°C within 1h, giving mono- and bis-hydrazone derivatives. Investigation of derivatization reaction and sample preparation was detailed and discussed...
