Leticia Figueira, Anita Israel
Adrenomedullin (AM) is a peptide involved in blood pressure regulation. AM activates three different receptors, the AM type 1 (AM1), type 2 (AM2), and calcitonin gene-related peptide 1 (CGRP1) receptors. AM triggers several signaling pathways such as adenylyl cyclase (AC), guanylyl cyclase (GC), and extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK) and modulates reactive oxygen species (ROS) metabolism. Cerebellar AM, AM-binding sites, and its receptor components are altered during hypertension, although it is unknown if these alterations are associated with changes in AM signaling...

Mosquitoes occur almost worldwide, and females of some species feed on blood from humans and other animals to support ovum maturation. In warm and hot seasons, such as the summer in Japan, fed mosquitoes are often observed at crime scenes. The current study attempted to estimate the time that elapsed since feeding from the degree of human DNA digestion in mosquito blood meals and also to identify the individual human sources of the DNA using genotyping in two species of mosquito: Culex pipiens pallens and Aedes albopictus...

The poor bonding strength of zirconia to different dental substrates is one of the challenging issues in restorative dentistry. Hydroxyapatite is an excellent biocompatible material with fine bonding properties. In this study, it was hypothesized that hydroxyapatite coating on zirconia would improve its bond strength. Forty-five zirconia blocks were prepared and randomly divided into three groups: hydroxyapatite coating, sandblasting, and no preparation (control). The blocks were bonded to cement and the micro-shear bond strength was measured following load application...

Penicillidmus Jałoszyński, 2014 was established to accommodate two Australian species of Glandulariini. Penicillidmus masseyensis Jałoszyński, 2014 and P. unicolor Jałoszyński, 2014 are known to occur in Cape York, northern Queensland. With the adult body length ranging from 0.83 to 0.86 mm, these species are among the smallest Australian scydmaenines. Another, yet undescribed species represented by a female, is also known to occur within the same area (Jałoszyński 2014). Penicillidmus resembles similarly small adults of Microscydmus Saulcy & Croissandeau, 1893, but can be easily distinguished on the basis of remarkable cephalic and prothoracic structures...

Although the pig is a model for heart disease, the neuroanatomy of cardiac ventricles (CV) in this species remains undetailed. We aimed to define the innervation pattern of pig CV, combining histochemistry for acetylcholinesterase, immunofluorescent labeling and electron microscopy. Forty nine examined pig hearts show that the major nerves supplying the ventral side of CV descend from the venous part of the heart hilum. Fewer in number and smaller in size, epicardial nerves supply the dorsal half of the CV...

In teaching and learning human anatomy, anatomical autopsy and prosected specimens have always been indispensable. However, alternative methods must often be used to demonstrate particularly delicate structures. Corrosion casting of porcine organs with Biodur E20(®) Plus is valuable for teaching and learning both gross anatomy and, uniquely, the micromorphology of cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and urogenital systems. Assessments of casts with a stereomicroscope and/or scanning electron microscope as well as highlighting cast structures using color coding help students to better understand how the structures that they have observed as two-dimensional images actually exist in three dimensions, and students found using the casts to be highly effective in their learning...
