Soft lithography allows for the simple and low-cost fabrication of nanopatterns with different shapes and sizes over large areas. However, the resolution and the aspect ratio of the nanostructures fabricated by soft lithography are limited by the depth and the physical properties of the stamp. In this work, silicon nanobelts and nanostructures were achieved by combining soft nanolithography patterning with optimized reactive ion etching (RIE) in silicon. Using polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) nanopatterned layers with thicknesses ranging between 14 and 50 nm, we obtained silicon nanobelts in areas of square centimeters with aspect ratios up to ~1...

Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome (SGBS) is a rare X-linked syndrome. Female carriers may have mild manifestations. Macrosomia, polyhydramnios, and kidney and urinary tract anomalies are common findings in male fetuses. We present the first case of a severely affected female fetus with stigmata of SGBS and a deletion involving the GPC3 gene.

BACKGROUND: Coronary bifurcated lesions (CBL) represent a hot topic of interventional cardiology. Provisional stenting, i.e. implantation of a drug-eluting (DES) in the main branch followed by side-branch (SB) intervention in case of suboptimal SB result, represents the gold standard to treat the vast majority of CBL undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The best technique for bail-out SB stenting has not been established. Prospective randomized trials comparing different stenting techniques may help provide important insights regarding the best way to conduct PCI in patients with CBL...

PURPOSE: Depression and anxiety disorders in patients with epilepsy (PWE) remain under-recognized and under-treated, despite being the most common psychiatric co-morbidities. Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are considered first-line treatment for primary depression and anxiety disorders. We performed this study to investigate if SSRIs and SNRIs could affect the seizure frequency of PWE and to assess whether such effect is independent of the response of the mood and anxiety disorders to these drugs...

In court questions are often raised related to how trace DNA was deposited, directly during the crime or innocently for instance by secondary transfer. It is therefore of interest to have knowledge of the probability of transfer or secondary transfer in different situations. Factors that could influence transfer probabilities are background DNA and the shedder status of the involved persons. In this study, we have classified participants as high or low DNA shedders. We observed DNA transfer in a simulated attack scenario, and demonstrated that shedder status has a significant influence of transfer rates...

The demonstration that caveolin-3 overexpression reduces myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury and our own finding that multiprotein signaling complexes increase in mitochondria in association with caveolin-3 levels, led us to investigate the contribution of caveolae-driven extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1/2 (ERK1/2) on maintaining the function of cardiac mitochondrial subpopulations from reperfused hearts subjected to postconditioning (PostC). Rat hearts were isolated and subjected to ischemia/reperfusion and to PostC...

The nitrogen-related phosphotransferase system (PTS(Ntr) ) is composed of the EI(Ntr) , NPr and EIIA(Ntr) proteins that form a phosphorylation cascade from phosphoenolpyruvate. PTS(Ntr) is a global regulatory system present in most Gram-negative bacteria that controls some pivotal processes such as potassium and phosphate homeostasis, virulence, nitrogen fixation and ABC transport activation. In the soil bacterium Azotobacter vinelandii, unphosphorylated EIIA(Ntr) negatively regulates the expression of genes related to the synthesis of the bioplastic polyester poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and cyst-specific lipids alkylresorcinols (ARs)...

During successful pregnancy, a woman is immunologically tolerant of her genetically and antigenically disparate fetus, a state known as maternal-fetal tolerance. How this state is maintained has puzzled investigators for more than half a century. Diverse, immune and nonimmune mechanisms have been proposed; however, these mechanisms appear to be unrelated and to act independently. A population of immune suppressive cells called myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) accumulates in pregnant mice and women. Given the profound immune suppressive function of MDSCs, it has been suggested that this cell population may facilitate successful pregnancy by contributing to maternal-fetal tolerance...

BACKGROUND: Modafinil (MOD) is a waking-promoting compound that is used for treatment of sleep disorders such as sleepiness and narcolepsy. Despite its efficiency, there are missing pieces of evidence regarding the mechanism of action of MOD at molecular level. For example, current data have demonstrated that MOD induces alertness by activating several wake-related neurotransmitter receptors, including dopamine 1 (D1) receptor. Nevertheless, an intriguing point highlights that MOD might be activating intracellular elements bounded to D1 receptor, such as cAMP response element-binding (CREB) or mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAP-K) expression...
