Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is a complication often associated with nephrotic syndrome. It occurs due to a state of hypercoagulability common in the diseases that attend to this syndromic diagnosis. It should be suspected whenever there is nephrotic syndrome associated with sudden flank pain, hematuria and worsening of proteinuria. Bilateral RVT also presents with frequently oliguric renal dysfunction. This case reports a 33-year-old patient hospitalized for a nephrotic syndrome, with etiologic investigation suggestive of primary membranous glomerulopathy, which evolved with bilateral RVT associated with deterioration of renal function and need for renal replacement therapy...

OBJECTIVE: A non-destructive and real-time bioluminescence (BL) assay was used to determine the utility of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) treatments mediated by methylene blue (MB) and laser irradiation (LI) against intact biofilms that are capable of producing caries (cariogenic). The efficacy of antibacterial photodynamic treatments has been currently determined by using either viable colony counts (VCC) or metabolic assays (Alamar Blue) that were demonstrated to have critical limitations when used on microcolony-forming bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans...

Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been promoted for multiple therapeutic applications. Many beneficial effects of MSCs are paracrine, dependent on extracellular vesicles (EVs). Although MSC-derived EVs (mEVs) are beneficial for acute lung injury and pulmonary fibrosis, mechanisms of mEV uptake by lung fibroblasts and their effects on myofibroblastic differentiation have not been established. We demonstrate that mEVs, but not fibroblast EVs (fEVs), suppress TGFβ1-induced myofibroblastic differentiation of normal and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) lung fibroblasts...

Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) that express the photopigment melanopsin (mRGCs) are photosensitive and initiate the non-image-forming pathway, where the majority of their axons terminate in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). RGCs only make up approximately half of the cells in the ganglion cell layer of the retina; therefore, it is important to be able to distinguish them from other cell types. The transgenic Thy-1 YFP mouse line 16 (Thy-1 YFP-16) expresses yellow-fluorescent protein (YFP) in projection neurons, including RGCs...

Cluster of differentiation (CD)90 (Thy‑1) was proposed as a marker for the liver cancer stem cells that are responsible for tumorigenic activity, however its involvement in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of CD90 on the biological functions of HCC and to investigate the associated circular RNA (circRNA) involved in this process. The analysis of the in vitro data demonstrated that CD90+ cells isolated from SK‑Hep‑1 cells exhibited increased viability, migration and invasive abilities compared with CD90‑ cells...

BACKGROUND: Rat liver epithelial (RLE) cells could inhibit the proliferation and invasiveness of hepatoma cells in vitro. This study is to understand the tropism and the effect of RLE cells on mouse hepatoma cells both in vitro and in vivo. METHODS: RLE cells were isolated from new-born rats and characterized their stem cell markers. Co-culture and HCC mouse model was established to detect therapeutic effect of RLE cells. RESULTS: RLE cells (including Thy-1+ RLE cells, Thy-1- RLE cells, RLE cells) displayed a selective tropism toward ML-1 hepatoma cells both in vitro and in vivo...

Gas-phase fragmentation of single strand DNA-peptide noncovalent complexes is investigated in positive and negative electrospray ionization modes.Collision-induced dissociation experiments, performed on the positively charged noncovalent complex precursor ions, have confirmed the trend previously observed in negative ion mode, i.e. a high stability of noncovalent complexes containing very basic peptidic residues (i.e. R > K) and acidic nucleotide units (i.e. Thy units), certainly incoming from the existence of salt bridge interactions...

Polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 (n-3 PUFA), such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been shown to prevent, and partially reverse, neurotoxin-induced nigrostriatal denervation in animal models of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the accumulation of α-synuclein (αSyn) in cerebral tissues is equally important to the pathophysiology. To determine whether DHA intake improves various aspects related to synucleinopathy, ninety male mice overexpressing human αSyn under the Thy-1 promoter (Thy1-αSyn) were fed one of three diets (specially formulated control, low n-3 PUFA or high DHA) and compared to non-transgenic C57/BL6 littermate mice exposed to a control diet...

PURPOSE: Diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) enables sensitive measurement of tissue microstructure by quantifying the non-Gaussian diffusion of water. Although DKI is widely applied in many situations, histological correlation with DKI analysis is lacking. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between DKI metrics and neurite density measured using confocal microscopy of a cleared mouse brain. METHODS: One thy-1 yellow fluorescent protein 16 mouse was deeply anesthetized and perfusion fixation was performed...

Thy-1 and αvβ3 integrin mediate bidirectional cell-to-cell communication between neurons and astrocytes. Thy-1/αvβ3 interactions stimulate astrocyte migration and the retraction of neuronal prolongations, both processes in which internal forces are generated affecting the bimolecular interactions that maintain cell-cell adhesion. Nonetheless, how the Thy-1/αvβ3 interactions respond to mechanical cues is an unresolved issue. In this study, optical tweezers were used as a single-molecule force transducer, and the Dudko-Hummer-Szabo Model was applied to calculate the kinetic parameters of Thy-1/αvβ3 dissociation...

Preeclampsia affects up to 8% of pregnancies worldwide and is a leading cause of both maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Our current understanding of the cause(s) of preeclampsia is far from complete, and the lack of a single reliable animal model that recapitulates all aspects of the disease further confounds our understanding. This is partially due to the heterogeneous nature of the disease, coupled with our evolving understanding of its etiology. Nevertheless, animal models are still highly relevant and useful tools that help us better understand the pathophysiology of specific aspects of preeclampsia...

In recent years there has been a rapid growth in interest in extreme sports. For the most part research has focused on understanding motivations for participation in extreme sports and very little research has attempted to investigate the psychological structure of effective performance. Those few studies that have attempted to explore this issue have tested models designed for traditional sport on adventure sports. However, extreme sports are not the same as adventure sports or traditional sports. This study employed a narrative approach to investigate experiences of effective performance in the extreme sport of proximity wingsuit flying...

The increased survival of treated people living with HIV (PLWH) represents a tremendous accomplishment. However, this has not been accompanied by uniform improvements in quality of life. Many PLWH prematurely develop age-related complications and traditional geriatric syndromes, including frailty. This is a potentially reversible state of vulnerability to adverse outcomes. Its operationalization remains challenging. The most commonly used tools, the frailty phenotype and the frailty index, have their advantages and limitations, but predict similar poor outcomes...

Fetal growth restriction (FGR) affects up to 5% of pregnancies and is associated with significant perinatal complications. Maternal deficiency of vitamin D, a secosteroid hormone, is common in FGR-affected pregnancies. We recently demonstrated that decreased expression of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in idiopathic FGR placentae could impair trophoblast growth. As strict regulation of cell-cycle genes in trophoblast cells is critical for optimal feto-placental growth, we hypothesised that pathologically decreased placental VDR contributes to aberrant regulation of cell-cycle genes...

Mixed Lineage Leukemia (MLL) gene rearrangements characterize approximately 70% of infant and 10% of adult and therapy-related leukemia. Conventional clinical diagnostics, including cytogenetics and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) fail to detect MLL translocation partner genes (TPGs) in many patients. Long-Distance Inverse (LDI)-PCR, the 'gold standard' technique that is used to characterize MLL breakpoints is laborious and requires a large input of genomic DNA (gDNA). To overcome the limitations of current techniques, a targeted Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) approach that requires low RNA input was tested...
