INTRODUCTION: Female sexual dysfunction (FSD), consisting of a constellation of distressing sexual symptoms, is highly prevalent worldwide. Given the central role played by psychological factors in the development of FSD, psychologically and in particular mindfulness-based interventions have arisen as potential treatment options for women. Although mindfulness-based interventions have been evaluated in samples of women with gynecologic cancer; a history of sexual abuse; multiple sclerosis; and spinal cord injury; and provoked vestibulodynia, the mechanisms by which mindfulness leads to improvements in sexual functioning are largely unstudied...

The folding processes of mini-proteins (FSD-EY/FBPWW28 domain) were computationally investigated by an enhanced conformational sampling method. Through the analyses of trajectories, these mini-proteins had multiple folding pathways different from a simple two-state folding, and the multiple folding processes were initiated by partial formations of secondary structures. These findings can be used to understand the folding of large proteins, that is, which secondary structures are partially folded in the early process, and how the remaining parts are sequentially folded...

To accommodate a migratory life history, migrants express a greater number of physiological and behavioral stages per annum than residents and are thus considered to have higher finite state diversity (FSD). To investigate the physiological mechanisms and constraints associated with migration, direct comparison of two subspecies of White-crowned Sparrow - migrant, Zonotrichia leucophrys gambelii and resident, Z.l.nuttalli - were made under common garden conditions of photoperiod and housing, as birds progressed from winter through the vernal life history stages...

Fibrinogen storage disease (FSD) is a rare disorder that is characterized by the accumulation of fibrinogen in hepatocytes and induces liver injury. Six mutations in the γC domain (γG284R, γT314P, γD316N, the deletion of γG346-Q350, γG366S, and γR375W) have been identified for FSD. Our group previously established γ375W fibrinogen-producing Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and observed aberrant large granular and fibrous forms of intracellular inclusion bodies. The aim of this study was to investigate whether fibrous intracellular inclusion bodies are specific to FSD-inducible variant fibrinogen...

INTRODUCTION: The female sexual response is complex and influenced by several biological, psychological, and social factors. Testosterone is believed to modulate a woman's sexual response and desire, because low levels are considered a risk factor for impaired sexual function, but previous studies have been inconclusive. AIM: To investigate how androgen levels and psychosocial factors are associated with female sexual dysfunction (FSD), including hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD)...

FSD-C10, a Fasudil derivative, was shown to reduce severity of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS), through the modulation of the immune response and induction of neuroprotective molecules in the central nervous system (CNS). However, whether FSD-C10 can promote neuroregeneration remains unknown. In this study, we further analyzed the effect of FSD-C10 on neuroprotection and remyelination. FSD-C10-treated mice showed a longer, thicker and more intense MAP2 and synaptophysin positive signal in the CNS, with significantly fewer CD4(+) T cells, macrophages and microglia...

Despite the growing data supporting the role of microcirculation in regulating liver function, little of this knowledge has been translated into clinical practice. The aim of this study is to quantify hepatic microcirculation in vivo using sidestream dark field (SDF) imaging and correlate these findings with hepatic blood flow, hemodynamic parameters, and soluble mediators. Postreperfusion hepatic microcirculation was assessed using SDF imaging. Hepatic microcirculation measurements included functional sinusoidal density (cm/cm(2) ), sinusoidal diameter (μm), red blood cell velocity (μm/second), volumetric blood flow (pl/second), and flow heterogeneity (FH) index...

Improving the suboptimal vegetable consumption among the majority of Australian children is imperative in reducing chronic disease risk. The objective of this research was to determine whether there was a relationship between food security determinants (FSD) (i.e., food availability, access, and utilisation dimensions) and adequate vegetable consumption among children living in regional and remote Western Australia (WA). Caregiver-child dyads (n = 256) living in non-metropolitan/rural WA completed cross-sectional surveys that included questions on FSD, demographics and usual vegetable intake...
