β-catenin/Wnt Signaling pathway is critically regulated in a normal cell by a number of post-translational modifications. In pancreatic cancer however, aberrant activation of this pathway plays a significant role in tumor progression and metastasis. Though a number of studies have focused on understanding Wnt Signaling pathway in pancreatic cancer, there has been no systematic study to evaluate molecules that may be affecting this pathway. In the current study, we used a diterepende triepoxide, triptolide, to inhibit post-translational modifications in Wnt pathway and evaluated how this compound may be affecting the intricate signaling that regulates cell proliferation in pancreatic cancer...

Previous work showed that repetitive peripheral nerve stimulation can induce plastic changes in motor cortical output. Triggering electrical stimulation of central structures from natural activity can also generate plasticity. In this study, we tested whether triggering peripheral nerve stimulation from muscle activity would likewise induce changes in motor output. We developed a wearable electronic device capable of recording electromyogram (EMG) and delivering electrical stimulation under closed-loop control...

The periauricular percutaneous implantation of the Neuro-Stim System™ family of devices EAD, MFS, and BRIDGE is a procedure involving the use of a non-opiate, neuromodulation analgesic for relieving acute and chronic pain. It has been approved as a minimal-risk procedure by multiple governmental and institutional facilities. This retrospective report of findings will help quantify the incidence of clinically observed bleeding, localized dermatitis, and infections at the implantation sites of the electrode/needle arrays, dermatitis at the site of the generator, and patient syncope...

The process of store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) leads to refilling the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) with calcium ions (Ca(2+)) after their release into the cytoplasm. Interactions between (ER)-located Ca(2+) sensors (stromal interaction molecule 1 [STIM1] and STIM2) and plasma membrane-located Ca(2+) channel-forming protein (Orai1) underlie SOCE and are well described in non-excitable cells. In neurons, however, SOCE appears to be more complex because of the importance of Ca(2+) influx via voltage-gated or ionotropic receptor-operated Ca(2+) channels...

Objective: The objectives of this study were: (1) to determine if musicians have a better ability to detect frequency changes under quiet and noisy conditions; (2) to use the acoustic change complex (ACC), a type of electroencephalographic (EEG) response, to understand the neural substrates of musician vs. non-musician difference in frequency change detection abilities. Methods: Twenty-four young normal hearing listeners (12 musicians and 12 non-musicians) participated. All participants underwent psychoacoustic frequency detection tests with three types of stimuli: tones (base frequency at 160 Hz) containing frequency changes (Stim 1), tones containing frequency changes masked by low-level noise (Stim 2), and tones containing frequency changes masked by high-level noise (Stim 3)...

The aim of this meta-analysis was to summarize the short- and long-term effects of bilateral deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN-DBS) on gait and freezing of gait (FOG) in Parkinson's disease and to detect predictors of post-stimulation outcome. A comprehensive review of the literature was conducted up to October 2015 using Medline Ovid databases for studies analyzing the effect of bilateral STN-DBS on FOG and/or gait. Sixteen studies with available data for the gait item (no. 29) of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and six studies with the FOG item (no...

Perioperative necessity of deep sedation is inevitably associated with diaphragmatic inactivation. This study investigated 1) the feasibility of a new phrenic nerve stimulation method allowing early diaphragmatic activation even in deep sedation and, 2) metabolic changes within the diaphragm during mechanical ventilation compared to artificial activity. 12 piglets were separated into 2 groups. One group was mechanically ventilated for 12 hrs (CMV) and in the second group both phrenic nerves were stimulated via pacer wires inserted near the phrenic nerves to mimic spontaneous breathing (STIM)...

We report that an ultrafast kinetics of reversible metal-ion insertion can be realized in anatase titanium dioxide (TiO2). Niobium ions (Nb5+) were carefully chosen to dope and drive anatase TiO2 into very thin nanosheets standing perpendicularly onto transparent conductive electrode (TCE) and simultaneously construct TiO2 with an ion-conducting surface together with expanded ion diffusion channels, which enabled ultrafast metal ions diffusion across the electrolyte/solid interface and into the bulk of TiO2...

Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) mediated by STIM1 and Orai1 is crucial for Ca(2+) signaling and homeostasis in most cell types. 2-Aminoethoxydiphenyl borate (2-APB) is a well-described SOCE inhibitor, but its mechanisms of action remain largely elusive. Here, we show that 2-APB does not affect the dimeric state of STIM1, but enhances the intramolecular coupling between the coiled-coil 1 (CC1) and STIM-Orai-activating region (SOAR) of STIM1, with subsequent reduction in the formation of STIM1 puncta in the absence of Orai1 overexpression...

BACKGROUND: Electric stimulation (E-stim) has been found to be an effective treatment in improving wound healing rates. However, the wound healing trajectory and its related predictors for complete wound closure (CWC) have not been reported with E-stim treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study. Data on 159 patients treated at an outpatient wound clinic utilizing combined intervention of E-stim and conventional care were included. The Kaplan-Meier healing curve together with linear regression models depicted the percentage of patients with CWC against time...

T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 3 (TIM-3) has been thought to play a crucial role in the negative regulation of immune responses. Here, we examined the levels of serum soluble TIM-3 (sTIM-3) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and evaluated the results with respect to the clinical features of the disease. Patients with diffuse cutaneous SSc (dcSSc) had higher levels of sTIM-3 than those with limited cutaneous SSc and healthy individuals. Serum sTIM-3 levels were positively correlated with the severity of skin sclerosis in early phase dcSSc...

Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) occurs when loss of Ca(2+) from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stimulates the Ca(2+) sensor, STIM, to cluster and activate the plasma membrane Ca(2+) channel Orai (encoded by Olf186-F in flies). Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs, which are encoded by a single gene in flies) are assumed to regulate SOCE solely by mediating ER Ca(2+) release. We show that in Drosophila neurons, mutant IP3R attenuates SOCE evoked by depleting Ca(2+) stores with thapsigargin. In normal neurons, store depletion caused STIM and the IP3R to accumulate near the plasma membrane, association of STIM with Orai, clustering of STIM and Orai at ER-plasma-membrane junctions and activation of SOCE...

Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by selective loss of neurons in the striatum and cortex, which leads to progressive motor dysfunction, cognitive decline, and psychiatric disorders. Although the cause of HD is well described-HD is a genetic disorder caused by a trinucleotide (CAG) repeat expansion in the gene encoding for huntingtin (HTT) on chromosome 4p16.3-the ultimate cause of neuronal death is still uncertain. Apart from impairment in systems for handling abnormal proteins, other metabolic pathways and mechanisms might contribute to neurodegeneration and progression of HD...

Susana Cubillos, Johannes Norgauer
Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease with or without joint involvement. In this disease, the thickened epidermis and impaired barrier are associated with altered calcium gradients. Calcium and vitamin D are known to play important roles in keratinocyte differentiation and bone metabolism. Intracellular calcium is regulated by calcium-sensing receptor (CASR), calcium release-activated calcium modulator (ORAI) and stromal interaction molecule (STIM). Other proteins modulated by vitamin D play important roles in calcium regulation e...

The bone remodeling and homeostasis are mainly controlled by the receptor-activator of nuclear factor kB (RANK), its ligand RANKL, and the soluble decoy receptor osteoprotegerin (OPG) pathway. While there is a strong association between osteoporosis and skeletal muscle dysfunction, the functional relevance of a particular biological pathway that synchronously regulates bone and skeletal muscle physiopathology remains elusive. Our recent article published in the American Journal of Physiology (Cell Physiology) showed that RANK is also expressed in fully differentiated C2C12 myotubes and skeletal muscles...

BACKGROUND: In intensive care unit (ICU) patients, diaphragmatic dysfunction (DD) can occur on admission or during the subsequent stay. The respective incidence of these two phenomena has not been previously studied in humans. The study was designed to describe temporal trends in diaphragm function in mechanically ventilated (MV) patients. METHODS: Ancillary study of a prospective, 6-month, observational cohort study conducted in two ICUs. MV patients were studied within 24 h following intubation (day-1) and every 48-72 h thereafter...

To determine if the use of intraoperative microelectrode recording (MER) influences the final location of lead implant in deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM), and to evaluate the incidence of associated complications. The usefulness of intraoperative MER in DBS is debated, some centers suggesting it increases complications without additional benefit. We conducted a retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent VIM DBS with MER at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston from June 1, 2009 to October 1, 2013...
