AIMS: Trials of transcatheter renal artery denervation (RDN) have failed to show consistent antihypertensive efficacy. Procedural factors and limitations of radiofrequency ablation can lead to incomplete denervation. We hypothesized that non-contact microwave catheter ablation could produce deep circumferential perivascular heating while avoiding the renal artery intima and media injury. METHOD AND RESULTS: A novel microwave catheter was designed and tested in a renal artery model consisting layers of phantom materials embedded with a thermochromic liquid crystal sheet, colour range 50-78°C...

Breaking the degeneracy of the genetic code via sense codon reassignment has emerged as a way to incorporate multiple copies of multiple non-canonical amino acids into a protein of interest. Here, we report the modification of a normally orthogonal tRNA by a host enzyme and show that this adventitious modification has a direct impact on the activity of the orthogonal tRNA in translation. We observed nearly equal decoding of both histidine codons, CAU and CAC, by an engineered orthogonal M. jannaschii tRNA with an AUG anticodon: tRNA(Opt) We suspected a modification of the tRNA(Opt)AUG anticodon was responsible for the anomalous lack of codon discrimination and demonstrate that adenosine 34 of tRNA(Opt)AUG is converted to inosine...

Exogenously applied GR24 affected somatic embryo formation and morphogenesis of strigolactone-deficient tomato mutant through cross-talk with auxins and cytokinins indicating involvement of SLs in the embryogenic process. Strigolactones (SLs) mediate the regulation of plant responses to the environment through cross-talk with other plant hormones, especially auxins. Auxins play a crucial role in coordinating the morphogenesis and development of plant reproductive organs, including the signal-transduction cascade leading to the reprogramming of gene-expression patterns before embryo formation...

Vesivirus 2117 is an adventitious agent that in 2009, was identified as a contaminant of CHO cells propagated in bioreactors at a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant belonging to Genzyme. The consequent interruption in supply of Fabrazyme and Cerezyme (drugs used to treat Fabry and Gaucher disease respectively), caused significant economic losses. Vesivirus 2117 is a member of the Caliciviridae; a family of small icosahedral viruses encoding a positive sense RNA genome. We have used cryo-electron microscopy and three dimensional image reconstruction to calculate a structure of vesivirus 2117 virus like particles as well as feline calicivirus and a chimeric sapovirus...

Poor adventitious root (AR) formation is a major obstacle in micropropagation and conventional vegetative propagation of many crops. It is affected by many endogenous and exogenous factors. With respect to endogenous factors, the phase change from juvenile to adult has a major influence on AR formation and rooting is usually much reduced or even fully inhibited in adult tissues. It has been reported that the phase change is characterized by an increase in DNA-methylation and a decrease in the expression of microRNA156 (miR156)...

Our previous studies revealed that methane (CH4 ) induces adventitious rooting in cucumber. However, the corresponding molecular mechanism is still elusive. In this work, we discovered that CH4 triggered the accumulation of nitric oxide (NO) and thereafter cucumber adventitious rooting, mimicking the inducing effects of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and NONOate (two NO-releasing compounds). Above mentioned responses were sensitive to NO scavenger(s), showing that the accumulation of NO and adventitious root development were respectively impaired...

Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) increases the incidence of adult cardiovascular disease (CVD). The sex-specific developmental mechanisms for IUGR-induced and western high fat diet (HFD) modification of CVD remain poorly understood. We hypothesized a maternal HFD in the Sprague-Dawley rat would augment IUGR-induced CVD in the offspring through decreased cardiac function and increased extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling and stiffness in a sex-specific manner. HFD or regular diet (Reg) was given from 5 weeks prior to mating through postnatal day 21 (PND21)...

Recent findings on holdfast development in the giant kelp highlighted its key importance for Macrocystis vegetative propagation. We report here for the first time the development of adventitious holdfasts from Macrocystis stipes. Swellings emerge spontaneously from different areas of the stipes, especially in senescent or creeping individuals. After being manually fastened to solid substrata, these swellings elongated into haptera, which became strongly attached after one month. Within 4 months new thalli increased in size and vitality, and developed reproductive fronds...

Here, we combine elicitors and transcriptomics to investigate the inducible biosynthesis of the ginsenoside from the Panax quinquefolium. Treatment of P. quinquefolium adventitious root with methyl jasmonate (MJ) results in an increase in ginsenoside content (43.66 mg/g compared to 8.32 mg/g in control group). Therefore, we sequenced the transcriptome of native and MJ treated adventitious root in order to elucidate the key differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the ginsenoside biosynthetic pathway. Through DEG analysis, we found that 5,759 unigenes were up-regulated and 6,389 unigenes down-regulated in response to MJ treatment...

Galectin-3 (Gal-3) plays a critical role in vascular inflammation and fibrosis. The role of TGF-β1 in mediating pulmonary vascular fibrosis is well documented; thus, we suspected that Gal-3 could be an important factor in TGF-β1-induced fibrosis in pulmonary adventitial fibroblasts (PAFs). We treated rats with monocrotaline (MCT) and cultured PAFs with TGF-β1 to stimulate fibrosis. We found that MCT injection induced vessel thickening and extracellular matrix deposition in vivo. TGF-β1 stimulated the production of collagen and fibronectin (Fn) protein in vitro...

BACKGROUND: The use of porcine islets to replace insulin-producing islet β-cells, destroyed during the diabetogenic disease process, presents distinct challenges if this option is to become a therapeutic reality for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. These challenges include a thorough evaluation of the microbiological safety of the islets. In this study, we describe a robust porcine islet-screening program that provides a high level of confidence in the microbiological safety of porcine islets suitable for clinical trials...

REVIEW
Hyoung Jin Kim, Hong-Jin Kim
The development of various types of virus-like particles (VLPs) has accelerated over the past two decades as the importance of VLPs for generating next-generation vaccines has been appreciated. Yeast has advantages such as scalable fermentation, low risk of contamination by adventitious agents, low production costs and the ability to produce VLPs with reliable qualities. It is generally recognized that yeast is suitable for producing VLPs that have simple structures and are produced intracellularly. However, recently there has been much effort to extend its applicability, and there is now evidence that it can be used as an expression platform for the productions of VLPs not only of non-enveloped viruses but also of enveloped viruses...

Cell culture and carotid injury studies with SD rats were performed to investigate the roles of CD34(+) vascular wall-resident stem/progenitor cells (VRS/Pcs) and vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in neointimal formation. In vitro, the media-isolated SM MHC(+) SMCs occupied 93.92±8.62% of total BrdU(+) cells, whereas the CD34(+) cells, only 2.61±0.82%, indicating that the cell expansion in SMC culture was attributed to SM MHC(+) SMCs. The adventitia-isolated CD34(+) VRS/Pcs responded to PDGF-BB by differentiating into SMC-like cells which expressed SM22α (an early stage SMC marker), but seldom SM MHC (a late stage SMC marker)...

This study investigated the therapeutic effects of renal denervation on cardiac systolic function after myocardial infarction (MI) in rats and the mechanism involved. Fifty male SD rats were randomly assigned to the sham group (n = 15), the MI group (n = 20), and the MI plus renal denervation group (n = 15). MI was established through thoracotomic ligation of the anterior descending artery. Renal denervation was achieved by laparotomic stripping of the renal arterial adventitial sympathetic nerve, approximately 3 mm from the abdominal aorta...

Auxin steers numerous physiological processes in plants making the tight control of its endogenous levels and spatiotemporal distribution a necessity. This regulation is achieved by different mechanisms including auxin biosynthesis, metabolic conversions, degradation and transport. Here we introduce cis-cinnamic acid (c-CA) as a novel and unique addition to a small group of endogenous molecules affecting in planta auxin concentrations. c-CA is the photo-isomerization product of the phenylpropanoid pathway intermediate trans-CA (t-CA)...

RATIONALE: The vascular adventitia is a complex layer of the vessel wall consisting of vasa vasorum microvessels, nerves, fibroblasts, immune cells, and resident progenitor cells. Adventitial progenitors express the stem cell markers, Sca1 and CD34 (AdvSca1 cells), have the potential to differentiate in vitro into multiple lineages, and potentially contribute to intimal lesions in vivo. OBJECTIVE: While emerging data support the existence of AdvSca1 cells, the goal of this study was to determine their origin, degree of multipotency and/or heterogeneity, and contribution to vessel remodeling...

Adventitious roots (ARs) directly affect lotus seedling growth and product quality because principal root is not well developed. However, the details of AR formation at the molecular level have not been determined in lotus. Therefore, three stages were chosen to identify the change of proteins abundant during rhizome formation, using isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantization coupled with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms involved in AR formation...
