Overdose of acetaminophen (APAP) results in acute liver failure. We have investigated the role of a post-translational modification of proteins called O-GlcNAcylation, where the O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT) adds and O-GlcNAcase (OGA) removes a single β-D-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) moiety, in the pathogenesis of APAP-induced liver injury. Hepatocyte specific OGT knockout mice (OGT KO), which have reduced O-GlcNAcylation, and WT controls were treated with 300 mg/kg APAP and the development of injury was studied over a time course from 0-24 hr...

There are several methods used in sports science to identify asymmetries in athletes, given their purported relevance to injury prevention and performance optimization. We aimed to verify whether asymmetries provided by isokinetic assessments, jump tests, and tensiomyography (TMG) are associated with each other, and whether their respective functional indices are related to jumping ability. TMG parameters, unilateral and bilateral squat-jump (SJ) and countermovement-jump (CMJ) performances, and peak torque in knee-extension and flexion with angular velocities of 60o/s and 300o/s for twenty-four soccer players were retained for analyses...

Disposable Paper cups are a threat to the environment and are composed of 90% high strength paper with 5% thin coating of polyethylene. This polyethylene prevents the paper cup from undergoing degradation in the soil. Hence, in the present study two different approaches towards the management of paper cup waste through vermicomposting technology has been presented. The experimental setup includes 2 plastic reactors namely Vermicompost (VC) (Cow dung + Paper cup waste + Earthworm (Eudrillus eugeinea)) and Vermicompost with bacterial consortium (VCB) (Cow dung + Paper cup waste + Eudrillus eugeinea + Microbial consortia such as Bacillus anthracis, B...

O-GlcNAcylation is a dynamic post-translational modification of cytonuclear proteins for intracellular signaling. Elevated O-GlcNAcylation is a general feature of cancer and contributes to cancer progression, and recent studies indicate the contribution to increasing incidence of various types of cancer in diabetic patients. However, the role of O-GlcNAcylation in tumor progression is not fully elucidated. Forkhead box M1 (FOXM1), a master mitotic transcription factor, has been implicated in all major hallmarks of cancer, and is wildly expressed in solid tumors...

DNA is a major target for a number of anticancer substances. Interaction studies between small molecules and DNA are essential for rational drug designing to influence main biological processes and also introducing new probes for the assay of DNA. Tschimgine (TMG) is a monoterpene derivative with anticancer properties. In the present study we tried to elucidate the interaction of TMG with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) using different spectroscopic methods. UV-visible absorption spectrophotometry, fluorescence and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopies as well as molecular docking study revealed formation of complex between TMG and CT-DNA...

The adoptive transfer of neoantigen-reactive tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) can result in tumor regression in patients with metastatic cancer. To improve the efficacy of adoptive T cell therapy targeting these tumor-specific mutations, we have proposed a new therapeutic strategy, which involves the genetic modification of autologous T cells with neoantigen-specific T cell receptors (TCRs) and the transfer of these modified T cells back to cancer patients. However, the current techniques to isolate neoantigen-specific TCRs are labor intensive, time consuming, and technically challenging, not suitable for clinical applications...

Minor-groove binding hairpin polyamides (PAs) bind specific DNA sequences. Synthetic modifications can improve PA-DNA binding affinity and include flexible modules, such as β-alanine (β) motifs to replace pyrroles (Py), and increasing compound charge using N-terminal cationic substituents. To better understand the variations in kinetics and affinities caused by these modifications on PA-DNA interactions, a comprehensive set of PAs with different numbers and positions of β and different types of N-cationic groups was systematically designed and synthesized to bind their cognate sequence, the λB motif...

INTRODUCTION: Autologous breast reconstruction has become the standard care for breast cancer patients. Although excellent cosmetic results can be achieved, most reconstructed breasts fail to regain normal sensation. Nerve coaptation of the flap has been suggested to improve sensation; the effect of the donor flap native sensory threshold on the degree of sensory restoration is yet to be determined. The aim of this study is to evaluate the differences in sensation between various potential donor site regions in comparison to the sensation of the healthy breast...

We report a wavelength-selective polymerization process controlled by visible/UV light, whereby a base is generated for anion-mediated thiol-Michael polymerization reaction upon exposure at one wavelength (400-500 nm), while radicals are subsequently generated for a second stage radical polymerization at a second, independent wavelength (365 nm). Dual wavelength, light controlled sequential polymerization not only provides a relatively soft intermediate polymer that facilitates optimum processing and modification under visible light exposure but also enables a highly cross-linked, rigid final material after the UV-induced second stage radical polymerization...

A kinetic mechanism and the accompanying mathematical framework are presented for base-mediated thiol-Michael photopolymerization kinetics involving a photobase generator. Here, model kinetic predictions demonstrate excellent agreement with a representative experimental system composed of 2-(2-nitrophenyl)propyloxycarbonyl-1,1,3,3-tetramethylguanidine (NPPOC-TMG) as a photobase generator that is used to initiate thiol-vinyl sulfone Michael addition reactions and polymerizations. Modeling equations derived from a basic mechanistic scheme indicate overall polymerization rates that follow a pseudo-first-order kinetic process in the base and coreactant concentrations, controlled by the ratio of the propagation to chain-transfer kinetic parameters (kp/kCT) which is dictated by the rate-limiting step and controls the time necessary to reach gelation...

Increasing incidence of various cancers has been reported in diabetic patients. O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) modification of proteins at serine/threonine residues (O-GlcNAcylation) is an essential post-translational modification that is upregulated in diabetic patients and has been implicated in tumor growth. However, the mechanisms by which O-GlcNAcylation promotes tumor growth remain unclear. Given that AMP-activated kinase (AMPK) has been thought to play important roles in suppressing tumor growth, we evaluated the involvement of AMPK O-GlcNAcylation on the growth of LoVo cells, a human colon cancer cell line...
