Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) is an important regulatory enzyme situated at a key branch point of central plant metabolism. Plant genomes encode several plant-type PEPC (PTPC) isozymes, along with a distantly related bacterial-type PEPC (BTPC). BTPC is expressed at high levels in developing castor oil seeds where it tightly interacts with co-expressed PTPC polypeptides to form unusual hetero-octameric Class-2 PEPC complexes that are desensitized to allosteric inhibition by L-malate. Analysis of RNA-Seq and microarray transcriptome datasets revealed two distinct patterns of tissue-specific BTPC expression in vascular plants...

Although a large amount of acoustic indicators have already been proposed in the literature to evaluate the hypokinetic dysarthria of people with Parkinson's Disease, the goal of this work is to identify and interpret new reliable and complementary articulatory biomarkers that could be applied to predict/evaluate Parkinson's Disease from a diadochokinetic test, contributing to the possibility of a further multidimensional analysis of the speech of parkinsonian patients. The new biomarkers proposed are based on the kinetic behaviour of the envelope trace, which is directly linked with the articulatory dysfunctions introduced by the disease since the early stages...

Kawauchi Village, in Fukushima Prefecture, is located within a 30-km radius of the nuclear disaster site of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP). "Sansai" (edible wild plants) in this village have been evaluated by gamma spectrometry after the residents had returned to their homes, to determine the residents' risk of internal exposure to artificial radionuclides due to consumption of these plants. The concentrations of radiocesium (cesium-134 and cesium-137) were measured in all 364 samples collected in spring 2015...

We synthesized the uniform core-shell microstructured compounds with hexagonal phase NaYF₄:Er/Yb microrods as the core and hexagonal phase NaLnF₄ (NaYbF₄, NaLuF₄:Yb/Tm, NaYF₄:Yb/Er, NaYF₄:Eu) as the shell based on the hydrothermal reaction. These microscale core-shell structures provided a platform for the spatially confining optical process while possessing high luminescence efficiency. The thickness of the shell could be controlled by adjusting the amounts of shell precursor, which significantly affected the intensity of the shell dopant ions emission and the emission color of core-shell upconversion luminescence (UCL)...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) of the distal extremities and acral sites are extremely rare and incompletely characterized. Twenty-seven DFSP occurring in these sites were retrieved from our collective archives and reevaluated. Tumors occurred in 16 males and 11 females. Median age at presentation was 42.5 years (range, 7 to 78 y). Lesions involved the foot (18 with 6 in the toes and 2 on the plantar foot), distal ankle (4), hand (4 with 2 in the thumbs), and wrist (1). All cases showed predominantly classic DFSP morphology and were diffusely CD34 positive...

Sertoliform cystadenoma of the rete testis (SCRT) is rare with only 9 cases reported to date in the literature, none with follow-up. Four large genitourinary pathology consult services were searched. We identified 15 cases of SCRT. Men were 21 to 84 years old (mean, 46 y) and had testicular discomfort or mass. Other findings were seminoma (n=1), spermatocele (n=2), hydrocele (n=1), varicocele (n=1), and scrotal hematoma (n=1). Eight had preoperative serum tumor markers, which were normal. Tumors ranged from 0...

We report 5 cases of primary intradermal nodular unpigmented tumors with a melanocytic immunophenotype associated with a novel CRTC1-TRIM11 fusion. Clinically, the cutaneous nodules were slowly growing in 3 women and 2 men (25 to 82 y old, median, 28 y) with no specific topography. Lesion size ranged from 4 to 12 mm (median, 5 mm). The tumors were strictly located in the dermis with a nodular pattern. The cells were arranged in confluent nests and fascicules. Central fibronecrotic areas were present in 2 cases...

The cancer suppressor gene, testis-specific protein Y-encoded-like 5 (TSPYL5), has been implicated in various cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC). In this study, we investigated the role of TSPYL5 in the development of CRC in vitro. First, we used bioinformatics to predict the binding target of TSPYL5, and found that the microRNA, miR-19-5p, bound to the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of TSPYL5. This interaction was further validated by the dual-luciferase assay. Second, we found that overexpressed TSPYL5 enhanced apoptosis in HT29 cells and reduced cell proliferation, reduced cell migration/invasion, and most of the cells accumulated in the G0/G1 phase of the cell cycle...

Demonstrating intracellular protein target engagement is an essential step in the development and progression of new chemical probes and potential small molecule therapeutics. However, this can be particularly challenging for poorly studied and non-catalytic proteins, as robust proximal biomarkers are rarely known. To confirm that our recently discovered chemical probe 1 (CCT251236) binds the putative transcription factor regulator pirin in living cells, we developed a heterobifunctional protein degradation probe...

Using hydrothermal reactions, three series of rare-earth borate-sulfates, namely, RE(SO4)[B(OH)4](H2O) (RE = La (1), Sm (2), Eu (3)), RE(SO4)[B(OH)4](H2O)2 (RE = Pr (4), Nd (5), Sm (6), Eu (7), Gd (8)), and RE(SO4)[B(OH)4](H2O)·H2O (RE = Tb (9), Dy (10), Ho (11), Er (12), Tm (13), Yb (14), Lu (15), Y (16)), have been synthesized, which represent the first rare-earth borate-sulfate mixed-anion compounds. All these compounds possess the same fundamental building anionic units of SO4 and B(OH)4 tetrahedra; however, they exhibit three different types of two-dimensional (2D) layered structures composed of 1D RE-B-O and RE-S-O chains...

The discovery of novel magnetic and electronic properties in low-dimensional materials has led to the pursuit of hierarchical materials with specific substructures. Low-dimensional solids are highly anisotropic by nature and show promise in new quantum materials leading to exotic physical properties not realized in three-dimensional materials. We have the opportunity to extend our synthetic strategy of the flux-growth method to designing single crystalline low-dimensional materials in bulk. The goal of this Account is to highlight the synthesis and physical properties of several low-dimensional intermetallic compounds containing specific structural motifs that are linked to desirable magnetic and electrical properties...

Mollusc shells are complex organomineral structures, the arrangement and composition depending on the species. Most studies are dedicated to shells composed of an aragonite nacreous and a calcite prismatic layer, so the nacreous prismatic model based on Pinctada and Atrina-Pinna. Here, we studied the micro- and nanostructure, the mineralogy and composition of a nacroprismatic bivalve species: Unio pictorum. The prismatic layer of Unio is aragonite, and the inner structure of the prismatic units strongly differs from those of the calcitic layers...

Okur-Chung syndrome is a neurodevelopmental condition attributed to germline CSNK2A1 pathogenic missense variants. We present eight unreported subjects with the above syndrome, who have recognizable dysmorphism, varying degrees of developmental delay and multisystem involvement. Together with six previously reported cases, we present a case series of seven female and seven male subjects, highlighting the recognizable facial features of the syndrome (microcephaly, hypertelorism, epicanthic fold, ptosis, arched eyebrows, low set ears, ear fold abnormality, broad nasal bridge and round face) as well as frequently occurring clinical features including neurodevelopmental delay (93%), gastrointestinal (57%), musculoskeletal (57%) and immunological (43%) abnormalities...

This study describes how three-dimensional (3D) human skin tissue is reconstructed, and provides digital anatomical data for the physiological structure of human skin tissue based on large-scale thin serial sections. Human skin samples embedded in paraffin were cut serially into thin sections and then stained with hematoxylin-eosin. Images of serial sections obtained from lighting microscopy were scanned and aligned by the scale-invariant feature transform algorithm. 3D reconstruction of the skin tissue was generated using Mimics software...

We offer a simple route to perfect omnidirectional invisibility in a spectral band of desired width. Our approach is based on the observation that in two dimensions a complex potential v(x,y) is invisible for incident plane waves with a wavenumber not exceeding a pre-assigned value α, provided that its Fourier transform with respect to y, which we denote by v˜(x,Ky), vanishes for Ky≤2α. We can fulfill this condition for potentials modeling the permittivity profile of an optical slab. Such a slab is perfectly invisible for any transverse electric wave whose wavenumber is in the range [0,α]...

We demonstrate a tunable single-longitudinal-mode Ho:YAG laser pumped by a 1.13 μm diode. With two intracavity Fabry-Perot etalons, the maximum single-longitudinal-mode output power of 102 mW at 2129.6 nm is obtained. The wavelength is tuned from 2119.7 to 2131.5 nm by precisely rotating two etalons. The measured beam quality factors M2 are 1.29 and 1.28 in the x and y directions, respectively.

BACKGROUND: Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is a rare tumor in children, with current evidence limited to single-center studies. We examined treatment and clinical outcomes for pediatric and adult SPN with a national data set. METHODS: The 2004 to 2013 National Cancer Data Base was queried to identify all patients diagnosed with SPN. The cohort was stratified by age (pediatric and adult) defined as below 18 years and 18 years and above, respectively...
