Chromobacterium subtsugae MWU12-2387 was isolated from the rhizosphere of cranberry plants. While it is unknown what environmental role these bacteria play in bog soils, they hold potential as biological control agents against nematodes and insect pests. Potential virulence genes were identified, including the violacein synthesis pathway, siderophores, and several chitinases.

BACKGROUND: Several studies report that fluid removal rate (FRR) above 10-13 mL/h/kg is associated with increased mortality in haemodialysis (HD) patients. AIM: The aims of this study are to assess the influence of moderate FRR on survival in a cohort of prevalent dialysis patients with various dialysis session times and to challenge the FRR thresholds associated with increased mortality risk reported previously. METHODS: Interdialytic weight gain (IDWG) and FRR (calculated from ultrafiltration [UF], target weight, and session time prescriptions) were studied in 190 prevalent dialysis patients (female: 42%, mean age: 69...

Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli O157:H7) strains are foodborne infectious agents that cause a number of life-threatening diseases, including hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Shiga toxin 1 (stx1), shiga toxin 2 (stx2), or a combination of both are responsible for most clinical symptoms of these diseases. Hence, various diagnostic methods have been developed so far to detect shiga toxins such as cell culture, ELISA, Rapid Latex Agglutination (RPLA) and hybridization, but due to high costs and labor time in addition to low sensitivity, they have not received much attention...

The most aggressive of four medulloblastoma (MB) subgroups are cMyc-driven group 3 (G3) tumors, some of which overexpress EZH2, the histone H3K27 mono-, di-, and trimethylase of polycomb-repressive complex 2. Ezh2 has a context-dependent role in different cancers as an oncogene or tumor suppressor and retards tumor progression in a mouse model of G3 MB. Engineered deletions of Ezh2 in G3 MBs by gene editing nucleases accelerated tumorigenesis, whereas Ezh2 re-expression reversed attendant histone modifications and slowed tumor progression...

Hydrophobically modified chitosan (HMCS), prepared by reacting alkyl aldehyde with chitosan was demonstrated to be an effective antimicrobial and transparent coating. The grafted alkyl chains exist as protruded hydrophobic tails on the HMCS coating surface. In contact with E. coli cells, HMCS coating captured and immobilized the cells via these hydrophobic tails. The hydrophobic tails could also kill the cells captured on the coating surface as visualized by fluorescence microscope. More than 50% of the initially loaded cells (2...

Electroencephalography (EEG) and centre of pressure (COP) data were recorded in young adults for 60 seconds during standing in visual transparent (VT) and visual occlusion (VO) conditions. In both of these conditions, participants wore VO liquid crystal spectacles which allowed the experimenter to accurately control visual information being presented or occluded to the participant. Alpha band (8-13 Hz) revealed significant differences in channel-averaged power spectrum in these two conditions, but not theta band (4-8 Hz) and beta band (13-30 Hz)...

Short-term ventricular assist devices (ST-VAD) have been effective in treating patients with refractory cardiogenic shock. Membrane oxygenators (MO) can be added to the circuit for concomitant profound refractory hypoxia. This study reports outcomes of combined therapy in this portion of patients. This is a retrospective review of 166 patients who received an ST-biventricular assist device (BiVAD) or right ventricular assist device (RVAD) for cardiogenic shock between November 2007 and November 2014. An MO was added to the RVAD for profound hypoxia refractory to maximized ventilation...

Benzofuran and 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran scaffolds are core components in a large number of biologically active natural and synthetic compounds including approved drugs. Herein, we report efficient synthetic protocols for preparation of libraries based on 3-carboxy 2-aryl benzofuran and 3-carboxy 2-aryl trans-2,3-dihydrobenzofuran scaffolds using commercially available salicylaldehydes, aryl boronic acids or halides and primary or secondary amines. The building blocks were selected to achieve variation in physicochemical properties and statistical molecular design and subsequent synthesis resulted in 54 lead-like compounds with molecular weights of 299-421 and calculated octanol/water partition coefficients of 1...

Despite improvements in guidewire technologies, the traditional antegrade wire escalation approach to chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization is successful in only 60-80% of selected cases. In particular, long, calcified, and tortuous occlusions are less successfully approached with a true-to-true lumen approach. Frequently, the guidewire tracks into the subadventitial space, with no guarantee of distal re-entry into the true lumen. The ability to manage the subadventitial space has been a key step in the tremendous improvement in success rates of contemporary CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), whether operating antegradely or retrogradely...

The association of Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) with incident clinical and radiographic vertebral fractures in older men is uncertain. TBS was estimated from baseline spine DXA scans for 5,831 older men (mean age 73.7 years) enrolled in the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) study. Cox proportional hazard models were used to determine the association of TBS (per 1 SD decrease) with incident clinical vertebral fractures. Logistic regression was used to determine the association between TBS (per 1 SD decrease) and incident radiographic vertebral fracture among the subset of 4,309 men with baseline and follow-up lateral spine radiographs (mean 4...

Microemulsion has the potentials to enhance dissolution as well as facilitate absorption and permeation of poorly water-soluble drugs through biological membranes. However, its application to govern a controlled release buccal delivery for local treatment has not been discovered. The aim of this study is to develop microemulsion-based mucoadhesive wafers for buccal delivery based on an incorporation of the microemulsion with mucoadhesive agents and mannitol. Ratio of oil to surfactant to water in the microemulsion significantly impacted quality of the wafers...

Large celiac artery aneurysms are associated with a high rupture and mortality risk. Traditionally, open surgical repair has been the mainstay of treatment. Endovascular alternatives have been increasingly described, ranging from coil embolization to exclusion with covered stent grafts. However, certain features such as a short wide neck, small vessel diameters, and significant vessel tortuosity can limit these two options. We describe a 75-year-old man with a splenic and celiac trunk aneurysm that was treated using a combination of coil embolization to occlude the outflow artery and aneurysm sac, and an aortic stent graft cuff to block the inflow...
