The presence of an abnormal karyotype has been shown to be profoundly detrimental at the cellular and organismal levels but is an overt hallmark of cancer. Aneuploidy can lead to p53 activation and thereby prevents proliferation, but the exact trigger for p53 activation has remained controversial. Here, we have used a system to induce aneuploidy in untransformed human cells to explore how cells deal with different segregation errors. We show that p53 is activated only in a subset of the cells with altered chromosome content...

In this paper, we explored the fluorescence properties of eight aurone derivatives bearing methoxy groups and bromine atoms as substituents in the benzene rings. All derivatives showed strong solvatochromic absorption and emission properties in solvents of different polarities. Some of them showed high fluorescence quantum yields, which make them potential compounds for sensing applications. The position of the methoxy groups in the benzofuranone moiety and the presence of bromine atoms in the benzene ring had a strong influence on the fluorescence behaviour of the aurones...

This paper describes a 4-month pilot study that tested the suitability of a physical activity intervention for first graders (children aged 6 and 7 years) in a public school in Santiago, Chile. Teachers were trained to deliver the programme in the classroom during the school day. Teachers were surveyed to determine if this intervention fit within their curriculum and classroom routines and they reported in a focus group that it was suitable for them. All children actively participated in the programme and positive changes in their attitudes towards physical activity were observed by their teachers...

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are fatal neurological disorders caused by prions, which are composed of a misfolded protein (PrP(Sc)) that self-propagates in the brain of infected individuals by converting the normal prion protein (PrP(C)) into the pathological isoform. Here, we report a novel experimental strategy for preventing prion disease based on producing a self-replicating, but innocuous PrP(Sc)-like form, termed anti-prion, which can compete with the replication of pathogenic prions...

Felipe Soto Vilches, Cristián Vera-Kellet
Pyoderma gangrenosum is an ulceronecrotising dermatosis that represents a challenge for any clinician, not only for its ability to mimic other dermatoses but also for its lack of response to treatment. During the past year, there have been new studies about the efficacy of standard therapies, such as cyclosporine and systemic corticosteroids. These studies showed that classic treatment was comparable, but they are insufficient as monotherapy. That being said, new emerging therapies are becoming important, as the use of corticosteroid-sparing agents, tumour necrosis factor inhibitors or even surgery...

Surface modification in nanostructured mesoporous silica particles (MSNs) can significantly increase the uptake in myocardial cells. Herein, MSNs particles were synthesized and chemically functionalized to further assess their biocompatibility in rat myocardial cell line H9c2. The surface modification resulted in particles with an enhanced cellular internallization (3-fold increase) with respect to pristine particles. Apoptosis events were not evident at all, while necrosis incidence was significant only at a higher doses (>500μg/mL)...

The interactions between Thermomyces lanuginosus lipase (TLL) and phenyl silica-based supports affect the immobilization mechanisms and their catalytic behavior. The modulation of phenyl groups density on the silica surface and porous characteristics were determined by TGA, FTIR, (29)Si NMR and N2 adsorption porosimetry. The correlation of the affinity constant and maximum adsorption capacity with the lixiviation results allowed determine differences in the enzyme adsorption mechanism in function of the immobilization pH and phenyl groups density...

BACKGROUND: Nerve injury promotes release of 5-HT at the spinal cord. Once released, 5-HT may produce antinociceptive or pronociceptive effects depending of the nature of 5-HT receptors. The purpose of this study was to investigate the participation of spinal 5-HT4 and 5-HT6 receptors in the maintenance of neuropathic pain in rats. METHODS: Tactile allodynia was measured using von Frey hairs in male Wistar rats subjected to L5-L6 spinal nerve injury. Selective 5-HT4 (GR-113808, 0...

BACKGROUND: Amphimeriasis is a fish-borne disease caused by the liver fluke Amphimerus spp. that has recently been reported as endemic in the tropical Pacific side of Ecuador with a high prevalence in humans and domestic animals. The diagnosis is based on the stool examination to identify parasite eggs, but it lacks sensitivity. Additionally, the morphology of the eggs may be confounded with other liver and intestinal flukes. No immunological or molecular methods have been developed to date...

Veronaea botryosa has been identified as a pathogen of cultured white sturgeon Acipenser transmontanus. In 2015, samples from 19 white sturgeon were received for diagnosis, of which 14 cultured positive for V. botryosa. Intraspecific variability among V. botryosa isolates from different clinically affected hosts and geographic regions was investigated using repetitive extragenic palindromic PCR fingerprinting (rep-PCR). The rep-PCR profiles of 16 V. botryosa isolates from a human, sea turtles, and cultured fish were distinct from those of other phaeoid fungi belonging to the genera Cladophialophora and Exophiala...

Shrimp lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is induced in response to environmental hypoxia. Two protein subunits deduced from different transcripts of the LDH gene from the shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei (LDHvan-1 and LDHvan-2) were identified. These subunits are expressed by alternative splicing. Since both subunits are expressed in most tissues, the purification of the enzyme from the shrimp will likely produce hetero LDH containing both subunits. Therefore, the aim of this study was to overexpress, purify and characterize only one subunit as a recombinant protein, the LDHvan-2...

It is postulated cannabinoids may have benefits in Parkinson's disease. However, its actual clinical effectiveness is still discussed. To answer this question, we used Epistemonikos, the largest database of systematic reviews in health, which is maintained by screening multiple information sources, including MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane, among others. We identified six systematic reviews including eight studies overall, of which four were randomized trials relevant for the question of interest. We extracted data from the systematic reviews, reanalyzed data of primary studies included in these reviews, conducted a meta-analysis and generated a summary of findings table using the GRADE approach...

One of the best-studied transcriptional regulatory proteins in bacteria is the Escherichia coli catabolite repressor protein (CRP) that when complexed with 3'-5'-cyclic AMP (cAMP) changes its conformation and interacts with specific DNA-sequences. CRP DNA-binding can result in positive or negative regulation of gene expression depending on the position of its interaction with respect to RNA polymerase binding site. The aim of this work is to review the biological role and phylogenetic relations that some members of the CRP family of transcriptional regulators (also known as cAMP receptor protein family) have in different bacterial species...
