PURPOSE: Preoperative directionality of shoulder tilting seems to be independent of the radiographic features of proximal thoracic (PT) curve in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. To date, no study had investigated the mechanisms underlying the variety of preoperative directionalities of shoulder tilting in AIS patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences of radiographic features between Lenke type 2 (double thoracic curve) AIS patients with different preoperative directionalities of shoulder tilting...

There is a surge in the literature on the development of exchange-correlation density functionals for a wide variety of physical and chemical properties. As a recent endeavor toward the systematic and nonempirical design of density functional approximations, optimally tuned range-separated hybrid (OT-RSH) models have been introduced. In this work, we propose novel OT-RSH density functionals for predicting the oxidation potentials of organic compounds from different categories. In this regard, detailed analysis of the role of nonempirical optimization of the range separation parameter and importance of short- and long-range exact-like exchange in OT-RSH calculations of the oxidation potential has also been done...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is considered a primary autoimmune disease; however, this view is increasingly being challenged in basic and clinical science arenas because of the growing body of clinical trials' data showing that exclusion of immune cells from the CNS only modestly slows disease progression to disability. Accordingly, there is significant need for expanding the scope of potential disease mechanisms to understand the etiology of MS. Concomitantly, the use of a broader range of pre-clinical animal models for characterizing existing efficacious clinical treatments may elucidate additional or unexpected mechanisms of action for these drugs that augment insight into MS etiology...

A smart molecule, QT490, containing thiosemicarbazide moiety acts as a highly selective turn-on in vitro NO sensor through the unprecedented NO-induced transformation of thiosemicarbazide moiety to 1,3,4-oxadiazole heterocycle with the concomitant release of HSNO, thereby eliminating any interference from various endogenous biomolecules including dehydroascorbic acid, ascorbic acid, etc. The kinetic studies of the reactions between QT490 and NO provide a mechanistic insight into formation of HSNO/RSNO from the reaction between H2S/RSH and NO in the biological system...

Rectus sheath hematomas (RSHs) are uncommon. They are usually unilateral and rarely bilateral. In this paper, we report the first case of spontaneous bilateral RSHs in a uremic patient after the administration of the first dose of low-molecular weight heparin during hemodialysis. The most interesting aspect of this case is that the main symptom of RSH in our patient was urinary bladder irritation. We highlight the importance of the prompt diagnosis and management of this medical emergency.

The nucleotide (p)ppGpp is a second messenger that controls the stringent response in bacteria. The stringent response modifies expression of a large number of genes and metabolic processes and allows bacteria to survive under fluctuating environmental conditions. Recent genome sequencing analyses have revealed that genes responsible for the stringent response are also found in plants. These include (p)ppGpp synthases and hydrolases, RelA/SpoT homologs (RSHs), and the pppGpp-specific phosphatase GppA/Ppx. However, phylogenetic relationship between enzymes involved in bacterial and plant stringent responses is as yet generally unclear...

This work aims to improve the computation of infrared spectra of gas-phase cations using DFT methods. Experimental infrared multiple photon dissociation (IRMPD) spectra for ten Zn and Ru organometallic complexes have been used to provide reference data for 64 vibrational modes in the 900-2000 cm(-1) range. The accuracy of the IR vibrational frequencies predicted for these bands has been assessed over five DFT functionals and three basis sets. The functionals include the popular B3LYP and M06-2X hybrids and the range-separated hybrids (RSH) CAM-B3LYP, LC-BLYP, and ωB97X-D...

BACKGROUND: Repeated-sprint training in hypoxia (RSH) is a recent intervention regarding which numerous studies have reported effects on sea-level physical performance outcomes that are debated. No previous study has performed a meta-analysis of the effects of RSH. OBJECTIVE: We systematically reviewed the literature and meta-analyzed the effects of RSH versus repeated-sprint training in normoxia (RSN) on key components of sea-level physical performance, i.e., best and mean (all sprint) performance during repeated-sprint exercise and aerobic capacity (i...

E Carlos Rodriguez-Merchan
This paper reviews the role of arterial embolization (AE) in recurrent spontaneous hemarthroses (RSH) that are refractory to intensive prophylaxis (RIP) in people with hemophilia (PWH). There are six articles in the literature on the topic. The total number of AEs performed so far is 78 in 69 patients. Four second AEs were required (4/78), and a third AE in one (1/78). No serious adverse effects have been reported except for a pseudoaneurym (1/78) of the femoral artery at the puncture site (that eventually required surgical repair) and for one patient (1/78) that had recurrence of bleeding for whom surgical exploration was required...

HTLV-1 is the causal agent of Adult T cell Leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) and HTLV-1-associated Myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP). The immune response to HTLV-1-infection is polarized to the Th1-type, and the presence of CXCL9/CXCL10 chemokines may lead to an increase in the recruitment of pro-inflammatory molecules in spinal cord tissue, contributing to the damage observed in the development of HAM/TSP. It has been observed that in chronic helminth-infections, such as schistosomiasis, there is a deviation toward the Th2/regulatory immune response...

Hydrogen selenide (H2Se) is an important metabolite of dietary Se compounds and has been implicated in various pathological and physiological processes. The development of highly sensitive and selective methods for the sensing of H2Se is therefore very important. Herein, we developed a fluorescent probe (hemicyanine (Hcy)-H2Se) for detecting H2Se based on a new H2Se-specific receptor unit, 1,2-dithiane-4,5-diol. Hcy-H2Se showed high selectivity toward H2Se over thiols (RSH), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), and selenocysteine (Sec) and was further exploited for the fluorescence imaging of H2Se both in living cells and in vivo...

Nitrite (NO2(-)) and nitroso compounds (E-NO, E = RS, RO, and R2N) in mammalian plasma and cells serve important roles in nitric oxide (NO) dependent as well as NO independent signaling. Employing an electron deficient β-diketiminato copper(II) nitrito complex [Cl2NNF6]Cu(κ(2)-O2N)·THF, thiols mediate reduction of nitrite to NO. In contrast to NO generation upon reaction of thiols at iron nitrite species, at copper this conversion proceeds through nucleophilic attack of thiol RSH on the bound nitrite in [Cu(II)](κ(2)-O2N) that leads to S-nitrosation to give the S-nitrosothiol RSNO and copper(II) hydroxide [Cu(II)]-OH...

Hydrophilic guide wire-associated renal subcapsular hematoma (RSH) during patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure is an extremely rare clinical condition. Herein, we present the case of a 16-year-old adolescent who suffered accidental hydrophilic 0.035-inch guide wire-related RSH during PDA closure. This RSH was diagnosed by computerized tomography and selective renal angiography. It was successfully treated by conservative treatment.

There is currently interest in sulfur-containing molecules that may or may not play a role in signaling. We have collected relevant thermodynamic data, namely standard Gibbs energies of formation and electrode potentials at pH 7, and used these to construct a Frost diagram. Thermodynamic data not available in the literature could be estimated with reasonable confidence. At pH 7, the electrode potential of the RSS/RSS(-) couple is +0.68 V, 0.28 V less than that of the RS, H(+)/RSH couple. S2(-) is unstable with respect to HSS(-) and S2...
