HYPOTHESIS: Electrosynthesis of the MIP nano-film after binding of the separated domains or holo-cytochrome BM3 via an engineered anchor should result in domain-specific cavities in the polymer layer. EXPERIMENTS: Both the two domains and the holo P450 BM3 have been bound prior polymer deposition via a N-terminal engineered his6-anchor to the electrode surface. Each step of MIP preparation was characterized by cyclic voltammetry of the redox-marker ferricyanide...

Intraocular pressure (IOP) is an important risk factor for glaucoma, and the response of the ONH and surrounding tissues to elevated IOP are often investigated to better understand pathophysiology. In vivo structure including that of the optic nerve head (ONH) and surrounding tissue of the eye are often assessed using optical coherence tomography (OCT). With advances in OCT technology, both large vessels and capillaries can be imaged non-invasively (OCT Angiography). Because a significant portion of retinal thickness is comprised of vasculature, the purpose of the current study was to investigate OCT structural and vascular changes in healthy non-human primate eyes with systematic graded increases and decreases in IOP...

Ping Qian, Tao Jiang, Xin Wang, Fei Song, Chen Chen, Xingjia Shen
We hypothesized that bmo-miR-275 has a potential regulatory function regarding the expression of sericin gene 2 (BmSer-2). First, we examined the expression of bmo-miR-275 and its target gene BmSer-2 in seven different tissues from 5th instar day-3 silkworm larvae. The results showed that they were both specifically expressed in the middle silk gland, implying that spatio-temporal conditions are required for bmo-miR-275 to regulate the expression of BmSer-2. To test this hypothesis, we constructed a pri-bmo-miR-275 expressing plasmid pcDNA3...

In this paper, we consider the problem of boundedness of Hausdorff operator on weighted central Morrey spaces. In particular, we obtain sharp bounds for Hausdorff operators on power weighted central Morrey spaces. Analogous results for the commutators of Hausdorff operators when the symbol functions belong to weighted central-BMO spaces are obtained as well.

OBJECTIVE: For successful canal wall up tympanoplasty (CWUT) for the treatment of cholesteatoma, the restoration of stable middle ear aeration is also important; however, little is known about the dynamics of such aeration or the optimal surgical procedure. In this study, alternative additional surgical procedure was selected based on the grade of middle ear aeration during the second-stage operation. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Patients included in this study underwent staged CWUT surgeries with mastoid cortex plasty (MCP) for well-aerated ears (grade 3) and bony mastoid obliteration (BMO) for poorly aerated ears (grade 2-0)...

There are no accepted methods to grade bone marrow oedema (BMO) and fracture on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans in Charcot osteoarthropathy. The aim was to devise semiquantitative BMO and fracture scores on foot and ankle MRI scans in diabetic patients with active osteoarthropathy and to assess the agreement in using these scores. Three radiologists assessed 45 scans (Siemens Avanto 1.5T, dedicated foot and ankle coil) and scored independently twenty-two bones (proximal phalanges, medial and lateral sesamoids, metatarsals, tarsals, distal tibial plafond, and medial and lateral malleoli) for BMO (0-no oedema, 1-oedema < 50% of bone volume, and 2-oedema > 50% of bone volume) and fracture (0-no fracture, 1-fracture, and 2-collapse/fragmentation)...

BACKGROUND: Glaucoma is one of the main causes of blindness in the Western hemisphere. Because the disease often painlessly progresses it remains unnoticed until major optic nerve head damage occurs in many cases. That is why new, more sensitive diagnostic methods are needed. Bruch's membrane opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW), measured with the new glaucoma module premium edition (GMPE) was recently introduced as a more accurate tool to detect glaucomatous changes. The purpose of this study was to assess the correlation of SPECTRALIS® spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and the GMPE anatomic positioning module (APS module) for retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurements...

REVIEW
Andrew J Tatham, Felipe A Medeiros
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly used to obtain objective measurements of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), optic nerve head, and macula for assessing glaucoma progression. Although OCT has been adopted widely in clinical practice, uncertainty remains concerning its optimal role. Questions include: What is the best structure to measure? What quantity of change is significant? Are structural changes relevant to the patient? How are longitudinal measurements affected by aging? How can changes resulting from aging be differentiated from true progression? How best should OCT be used alongside visual fields, and how often should OCT be performed? Recent studies have addressed some of these questions...

A precise evaluation of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) is key for diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma. The Bruch's membrane opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) has been proposed as a reproducible assessment of the optic nerve. The BMO-MRW measures the minimum distance from the BMO to the internal limiting membrane. We propose an approach to correct the BMO-MRW using the BMO size for increased accuracy in interindividual comparisons in future studies. Eighty-one healthy patients received SPECTRALIS spectral domain optical coherence tomography measurements for the peripapillary RNFLT and BMO-MRW...

While biogenic manganese oxide (BMO) generated via the oxidation of Mn(II) by the Mn-oxidizing bacteria (MOB) have received attention, the relative roles of biological activity by MOB themselves were not clearly investigated. In this study, the synergistic effects of BMO and MOB Pseudomonas putida strain MnB1 on the degradation of 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2) was investigated. Experiments with BMO in the presence of P. putida MnB1 showed 15-fold higher removal than that with BMO alone, suggesting that EE2 degradation was mediated by the biological activity of MOB as well as abiotic reaction by BMO...
