Rod cell membranes contain cholesterol-rich detergent-resistant membrane (DRM) rafts, which accumulate visual cascade proteins as well as proteins involved in regulation of phototransduction such as rhodopsin kinase and guanylate cyclases. Caveolin-1 is the major integral component of DRMs, possessing scaffolding and regulatory activities towards various signaling proteins. In this study, photoreceptor Ca2+ -binding proteins recoverin, NCS1, GCAP1, and GCAP2, belonging to neuronal calcium sensor (NCS) family, were recognized as novel caveolin-1 interacting partners...

S O'Grady, M P Morgan
The implementation of mammographic screening programmes in many countries has been linked to a marked increase in early detection and improved prognosis for breast cancer patients. Breast tumours can be detected by assessing several features in mammographic images but one of the most common are the presence of small deposits of calcium known as microcalcifications, which in many cases may be the only detectable sign of a breast tumour. In addition to their efficacy in the detection of breast cancer, the presence of microcalcifications within a breast tumour may also convey useful prognostic information...

Streptozotocin (STZ) is a glucosamine-nitrosourea compound that is particularly toxic to the insulin-producing beta-cells of the pancreas in mammals; it is used for experimental simulation of sporadic Alzheimer's disease by means of intracerebroventricular administration in vivo. Here we show that the application of 3-4 mM STZ to primary culture for 48 h induces neuronal death in immature (2-3 days in vitro) cultures of rat cerebellar granule cells. Mature cultures (7-8 days in vitro) were poorly sensitive to this toxic treatment...

AIM: To test the hypothesis that polyacrylic acid-based and calcium silicate materials are able to increase mineral density of artificially demineralized dentine produced by a microcosm model for caries formation. METHODOLOGY: Forty-five dentine cavities were prepared in 9 sound human third molars (5 in each tooth). Specimens received a bacterial inoculum and were incubated in BHI plus 5% of sucrose for 96h to allow biofilm formation. After that, the specimens were scanned in a high energy micro-CT (baseline stack) and then, each cavity was filled with different cements: zinc polycarboxylate (Poly Zinc™ , Prevest DenPro, Jammu, India), conventional glass ionomer (Ketac Molar, 3M ESPE, Seefeld, Germany) and two calcium silicate based materials (MTA, Angelus, Londrina, Brazil and Biodentine™ , Septodont, Saint Maur des Fosses, France) while the central cavity was filled with utility wax (negative control)...

The existence of both calcium-binding proteins (CBPs) and neuropeptides in the retina and brain of various species of vertebrates and invertebrates is well documented. Octopus retina is particularly interesting because it represents a case of convergent evolution. The aim of this study was to characterize the distribution of two CBPs, calretinin and calbindin, in Octopus retina using morphology, in situ hybridization, immunocytochemistry and Western blot. Calretinin-like immunoreactivity was found in the photoreceptor cells, but unexpectedly also in the supporting cells...

Vascular cells have a finite lifespan and eventually enter irreversible growth arrest called cellular senescence. We have previously suggested that vascular cell senescence contributes to the pathogenesis of human atherosclerosis. Amlodipine is a mixture of two enantiomers, one of which (S- enantiomer) has L-type channel blocking activity, while the other (R+ enantiomer) shows ~1000-fold weaker channel blocking activity than S- enantiomer and has other unknown effects. It has been reported that amlodipine inhibits the progression of atherosclerosis in humans, but the molecular mechanism of this beneficial effect remains unknown...

Ecto-nucleotide pyro¬phosphatase/phosphodiesterase-1 (NPP1) hydrolyzes phospho¬diester bonds of nucleotides such as ATP, resulting mainly in the formation of AMP and pyrophosphate. NPP1 activity plays a deleterious function in calcified aortic valve disease and calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease. Thus, inhibitors of NPP1 represent a medical need. We developed novel NPP1 inhibitors based on uridine 5'-Pα,α-di-thiophosphate analogues, 9-12. All these analogues potently inhibited hNPP1 (80-100% inhibition) at 100 µM, with no, or minimal, inhibition of NPP3 and other ectonucleotidases (NTPDase1,2,3,8)...

The size control of materials is of great importance in research and technology because materials of different size and shape have different properties and applications. This paper focuses on the synthesis of hydroxyapatite in ultrasound fields of different frequencies and intensities with the aim to find the conditions which allow control of the particles size. The results are evaluated by X-ray diffraction, Transmission Electron Microscopy, morphological and sedimentation analyses. It is shown that the hydroxyapatite particles synthesized at low intensity non-cavitation regime of ultrasound have smaller size than those prepared at high intensity cavitation regime...

The microstructure and corrosion properties of as-cast AZ61 (Mg-6%Al-1%Zn) and AZ61 alloys doped with titanium and calcium and subjected to high ratio differential speed rolling were investigated. Addition of the alloying elements to the AZ61 alloy resulted in remarkable modification of the morphology and the amount of continuous β (Mg17Al12)-phase. Addition of Ti to the as-cast AZ61 alloy causes a decrease in the volume fraction (or discontinuity of the β-phase), leading to strong anodic dissolution. In contrast, addition of Ca to the as-cast AZ61 alloy is rather effective for preventing pitting corrosion...

One of the major obstacles in process of lignocellulosic biorefinery is the utilization of pre-hydrolysate from pre-treatment. Although lignocellulosic pre-hydrolysate can serve as an economic starting material for xylonic acid production, the advancement of xylonic acid or xylonate is still limited by further commercial value or applications. In the present study, xylose in the high concentration wheat straw pre-hydrolysate was first in-situ biooxidized to xylonate by Gluconobacter oxydans. To meet the needs of commercialization, crude powdered calcium xylonate was prepared by drying process and calcium xylonate content in the prepared crude product was more than 70%...
