Rebiopsy is considered an option for specific types of cancer, such as breast, non-small cell lung, and prostate cancer, in clinical trials and in practice. The benefit of rebiopsy comes from the selection of a new treatment strategy based on the genetic profile of the cells, which may reflect the development of drug resistance or hormonal changes. For colorectal cancer, the presence of different genomic mutations between the primary tumor and its metastases is rare, and rebiopsy is therefore not generally performed...

A 70-year-old man with diabetes mellitus presented with an enlarged pituitary stalk in 2014. IgG4-related parotitis and submandibular sialoadenitis were diagnosed in 2012. He denied any symptoms related to a pituitary mass. His visual field was intact, and his hypopituitarism was subtle. The serum IgG4 level was elevated. A lip biopsy revealed strong fibrosis and hyper-infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells. Based on these findings, IgG4-related hypophysitis was diagnosed. The patient was carefully followed without specific intervention...

BACKGROUND: The 4th heart sound (S4) is commonly heard in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The 3rd heart sound (S3) is also audible in HCM patients regardless of the presence or absence of heart failure. These extra heart sounds may be associated with myocardial fibrosis because myocardial fibrosis has been suggested to affect left ventricular compliance.Methods and Results:The present retrospective study evaluated 53 consecutive HCM patients with sinus rhythm who had no symptoms of heart failure and underwent an initial assessment including phonocardiography, echocardiography, and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

Hiroshi Kawasaki, Robert H Kretsinger
Calmodulin is a calcium binding protein that consists of four EF-hand domains. The two EF-lobes of calmodulin, called the N-lobe and the C-lobe, arose from duplication and fusion of a precursor EF-hand. The amino acid sequences and the structures of the N-lobe and of the C-lobe are quite similar to each other. The N-lobe and the C-lobe, however, have subtle differences in structure and function. We analyzed the helix positions of calmodulin lobes by the alignment with the pseudo-two fold axis of the EF-lobe...

Echocardiography is an excellent noninvasive imaging modality for evaluation and follow-up of cardiac lesions, especially coronary artery changes occurring as a result of Kawasaki disease. The information obtained has prognostic implications and can be complemented with other modes of imaging for risk stratification and optimization of both medical and interventional therapy. The aim of this article is to describe the time line of echocardiographic follow-up of patients affected with Kawasaki disease. The classification of coronary artery changes and transthoracic echocardiographic views recommended for detailed evaluation of the coronary arteries are delineated in detail in this report...

Al-Awadi-Raas-Rothschild syndrome (AARRS; OMIM 276820) is a very rare autosomal recessive limb malformation syndrome caused by WNT7A mutations. AARRS is characterized by various degrees of limb aplasia and hypoplasia. Normal intelligence and malformations of urogenital system are frequent findings. Complete loss of WNT7A function has been shown to cause AARRS, however, its partial loss leads to the milder malformation, Fuhrmann syndrome. An Indian boy affected with AARRS is reported. A novel homozygous base substitution mutation c...

Nucleic acid nanotechnology has great potential for future therapeutic applications. However, the construction of nanostructured devices that control cell fate by detecting and amplifying protein signals has remained a challenge. Here we design and build protein-driven RNA-nanostructured devices that actuate in vitro by RNA-binding-protein-inducible conformational change and regulate mammalian cell fate by RNA-protein interaction-mediated protein assembly. The conformation and function of the RNA nanostructures are dynamically controlled by RNA-binding protein signals...

Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) and duloxetine are used to treat neuropathic pain. However, the mechanisms underlying their analgesic effects remain unclear. Although many investigators have shown inhibitory effects of antidepressants on voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav) as a possible mechanism of analgesia, to our knowledge, no one has compared effects on the diverse variety of sodium channel α subunits. We investigated the effects of antidepressants on sodium currents in Xenopus oocytes expressing Nav1...

A 55-year-old Chinese lady was diagnosed with acute complete Kawasaki disease (KD) in January 2015. To our knowledge, this patient was the first described woman who was over 50 years and fulfilled all the characteristics of acute complete KD. The patient had a striking result on the 26th day since this disease onset after the initiation of treatment of immunoglobulin (IG) and aspirin; and did not have any complications up to now. The purpose of this case report was to raise the awareness of KD in the middle-aged persons and the therapeutic schedules, as there is no valid therapeutic therapeutic for adults with KD...

Kawasaki disease (KD), an acute systemic vasculitis of early childhood, is of unknown etiology. High-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is an effective treatment, but its molecular target remains elusive. DNA microarray analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) revealed that at least 21 genes are drastically down-regulated after IVIG treatment in most KD patients. qRT-PCR analysis confirmed that the mRNA levels of five of these genes were considerably reduced in almost all KD patients after IVIG treatment...

In Corynebacterium glutamicum, the activity of the 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (ODH) complex is negatively regulated by the unphosphorylated form of OdhI protein, which is critical for L-glutamate overproduction. We examined the potential impact of protein acylation at lysine (K)-132 of OdhI in C. glutamicum ATCC13032. The K132E succinylation-mimic mutation reduced the ability of OdhI to bind OdhA, the catalytic subunit of the ODH complex, which reduced the inhibition of ODH activity. In vitro succinylation of OdhI protein also reduced the ability to inhibit ODH, and the K132R mutation blocked the effect...
