Disruption of circadian rhythms influences the pathogenesis of obesity, particularly with the basic regulation of food intake and metabolism. A link between metabolism and the circadian clock is the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs). The Neotomodon alstoni mouse, known as the "Mexican volcano mouse," may develop obesity if fed a normo-caloric diet. This manuscript documents the changes in part of the hepatic lipid homeostasis in both sexes of lean and obese N. alstoni mice, comparing the daily changes in the BMAL1 clock protein, in regulators of lipid metabolism (PGC-1α, PPARα-γ, SREBP-1c, and CPT-1α) and in free fatty acid (FFA) and hepatic triacylglyceride (TAG) metabolites in light-dark cycles...

The [Fe-S] late-acting subsystem comprised of Isa1p/Isa2p, Grx5p, and Iba57p proteins (Fe-S-IBG subsystem) is involved in [4Fe-4S]-cluster protein assembly. The effect of deleting IBA57 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae on mitochondrial respiratory complex integration and functionality associated with Rieske protein maturation was evaluated. The iba57Δ mutant showed decreased expression and maturation of the Rieske protein. The loss of Rieske protein caused by IBA57 deletion affected the structure of supercomplexes III2IV2 and III2IV1 and their integration into the mitochondria, causing dysfunction in the electron transport chain...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the idea of a highly immunogenic protein-based vaccine to combat Streptococcus pneumoniae and its severe invasive infectious diseases has gained considerable interest. However, the target proteins to be included in a vaccine formulation have to accomplish several genetic and immunological characteristics, (such as conservation, distribution, immunogenicity and protective effect), in order to ensure its suitability and effectiveness. This study aimed to get comprehensive insights into the genomic organization, population distribution and genetic conservation of all pneumococcal surface-exposed proteins, genetic regulators and other virulence factors, whose important function and role in pathogenesis has been demonstrated or hypothesized...

INTRODUCTION: Mucinous carcinoma is a variant of invasive breast carcinomas that accounts for 2% of them and has a better prognosis in contrast to the non-specific invasive carcinoma. They regularly are positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors and, generally, they do not overexpress HER2. When HER2 is positive, the first line treatment is trastuzumab; although the resistance is 52-89% for the non-specific carcinoma, it has been described just once in mucinous carcinoma. CASE SUMMARY: A 48-year-old female presented with a lump in her right breast and after a biopsy, it was diagnosed as mucinous carcinoma in the core biopsy and surgical resection, with positive hormone receptors and HER2 positive (3+) in 100% of the tumor cells...

Muscle is an important component of the muscle-tendon-bone unit, driving skeletal motion through contractions that alter the length of the muscle. The muscle and myotendinous junction (MTJ) are most commonly injured in the young adult, as a result of indirect mechanisms such as overuse or stretching, direct impact (penetrating or nonpenetrating), or dysfunction of the supporting connective tissues. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is widely used for assessment of muscle injuries. This review illustrates the MR imaging appearance of a broad spectrum of acute, subacute, and chronic traumatic lesions of muscle, highlighting the pathophysiology, biomechanics, and anatomic considerations underlying these lesions...

In this work, a Fourier transform mid-infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)-based method was developed for simultaneously quantifying simple sugars and exogenously added fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in strawberry juices preserved for up to 14 d using nonthermal techniques (geraniol and vanillin+ultrasound). The main spectral differences were observed in the 1200 to 900 cm-1 region. The presence of FOS was identified by the typical bands at 1134, 1034, and 935 cm-1 . During storage, a significant decrease of sucrose was concomitant to an increase of glucose and fructose in juices stored without any previous preservation treatment, as determined by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)...

REVIEW

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a tool that allows constant evaluation of glycemic control, providing data such as the trend and fluctuation of interstitial glucose levels over time. In clinical practice, there are two modalities: the professional or retrospective and the personal or real-time CGM (RT-CGM). The latest-generation sensors are more accurate and sensitive for hypoglycemia, improving adherence to self-monitoring, which has allowed optimizing glycemic control. The development of algorithms that allow the suspension of the infusion of insulin during hypoglycemia gave rise to the integrated therapy or sensor-augmented insulin pump therapy with low glucose suspend, which has proven to be an effective and safe alternative in the treatment of diabetic patients with high risk of hypoglycemia...

Glucocorticoids have been implicated in nonalcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD). The influence of a palatable diet on the response to stress is controversial. This study explored whether a high-sucrose diet could protect from hepatic steatosis induced by chronic restraint stress in young adult rats. Male Wistar rats aged 21 days were allocated into four groups (n = 6-8 per group): control, chronic restraint stress, 30% sucrose diet, and 30% sucrose diet plus chronic restraint stress. After being exposed to either tap water or sucrose solution during eight weeks, half of the rats belonging to each group were subject or not to repeated restraint stress (1 h per day, 5 days per week) during four weeks...

The recent Zika virus (ZIKV) outbreak demonstrates that cost-effective clinical diagnostics are urgently needed to detect and distinguish viral infections to improve patient care. Unlike dengue virus (DENV), ZIKV infections during pregnancy correlate with severe birth defects, including microcephaly and neurological disorders. Because ZIKV and DENV are related flaviviruses, their homologous proteins and nucleic acids can cause cross-reactions and false-positive results in molecular, antigenic, and serologic diagnostics...
