PqqE is a radical S-adenosyl-l-methionine (SAM) enzyme that catalyzes the initial reaction of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) biosynthesis. PqqE belongs to the SPASM (subtilosin/PQQ/anaerobic sulfatase/mycofactocin maturating enzymes) subfamily of the radical SAM superfamily and contains multiple Fe-S clusters. To characterize the Fe-S clusters in PqqE from Methylobacterium extorquens AM1, Cys residues conserved in the N-terminal signature motif (CX 3 CX 2C) and the C-terminal seven-cysteine motif (CX 9-15 GX 4 CX n CX 2 CX 5 CX 3 CX n C; n = an unspecified number) were individually or simultaneously mutated into Ser...

LESSONS LEARNED: There is no presenting parameter that predicts the success of neoadjuvant therapy for pancreatic cancer.Despite the images on scans following neoadjuvant therapy, all patients should be evaluated, because inflammation following radiation therapy (RT) may overstate the extent of tumor and vascular involvement. BACKGROUND: In patients presenting with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma deemed unresectable by two pancreatic cancer surgeons, we analyzed presenting tumor size, extent of vascular involvement, tumor markers, response to neoadjuvant gemcitabine (G), docetaxel (T), and capecitabine (X) with or without additional chemoradiotherapy with GX on R0 resection rates (≥2 mm margins), and survival...

Glyoxal is a bifunctional electrophile capable of cross-linking DNA. Although it is present in foods and from the environment, endogenous formation of glyoxal occurs through metabolism of carbohydratesand oxidation of lipids and nucleic acids. Plasma concentrations of glyoxal are elevatedin in diabetes mellitus patients compared to non-diabetics. The most abundant 2'-deoxyribonucleoside adducts cross-linked by glyoxal are dG-gx-dC, dG-gx-dA, and dG-gx-dG. These DNA cross-links can be mutagenic by damaging the integrity of the DNA structure...

Herein, quasi-square planar Cu(II)(Hmbm)Cl2 (CBC, Hmbm = (1-methyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)methanol) was arranged in a pseudo orthogonal way to form Cl-bridged chains, and further ππ interactions resulted in distorted hexagonal layers. DFT calculations reveal a bond strength order of Cu-Cl > Cu-O/N ≫ CuCl. ESI-MS data reveal several small fragments from CBC, but oligomeric [Cu], [Cu], and [Cu] for non-zero in-source energies; MS data indicates the occurrence of several chemical processes, viz. splitting of the ligand, oligomerization, and redox reaction of alcohol to aldehyde and Cu(II) to Cu(I)...

Yuki Sumida, Toshio Kuwai, Sauid Ishaq
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) using a scissors-type knife, the Stag-Beetle knife (SB knife, Sumitomo Bakelite, Tokyo, Japan), is considered technically easy and safe due to its ability to grasp the target tissue to allow controlled resection without the complex endoscopic tip control required with conventional ESD devices. There are two types of SB knife (short-type and Jr-type), used mainly for esophageal and colorectal neoplasms (1-3). Recently, a new type, SB knife GX, has been developed for gastric ESD...

Glycerol is a promising carbon source for bio-production and is particularly attractive because it is produced in excess as a biodiesel byproduct. Elucidating the flux distribution of glycerol catabolism would greatly aid metabolic engineering, but (13)C-labeling of glycerol has not yet been optimized for precise flux estimations. In this study, an Escherichia coli wild type strain was aerobically cultured using glycerol as the sole carbon source. [1,3-(13)C], [2-(13)C], and [U-(13)C] glycerols were independently mixed with an equal amount of naturally labeled glycerol; these mixtures were used as (13)C-labeled substrates, and flux distributions during exponential growth were estimated based on (13)C-enrichment of proteinogenic amino acids...

One of the important determinants in the efficiency of a molecular interaction is the necessity for conformational changes in host and/or guest molecules upon binding. In small-molecule interactions with nucleic acids, conformational changes on both molecules are often involved, especially in intercalating binding. Mismatch binding ligands (MBLs) we described here consist of two heterocycles that predominantly exist in one conformation, so it is of interest to determine if such molecules can bind to any DNA and RNA structures...

INTRODUCTION: There are limited data on cardiac dysrhythmias in laypersons during hypergravity exposure. We report layperson electrocardiograph (ECG) findings and tolerance of dysrhythmias during centrifuge-simulated suborbital spaceflight. METHODS: Volunteers participated in varied-length centrifuge training programs of 2-7 centrifuge runs over 0.5-2 d, culminating in two simulated suborbital spaceflights of combined +Gz and +Gx (peak +4.0 Gz, +6.0 Gx, duration 5 s)...

Immobilization on Glyoxyl-agarose support (Gx) is one of the best strategies to stabilize enzymes. However, the strategy is difficult to apply at neutral pH when most enzymes are stable and, even when possible, produces labile derivatives. This work contributes to overcoming this hurdle through a strategy that combines solid-phase amination, presence of key additives, and derivative basification. To this end, aminated industrial lipases from Candida artarctica (CAL), Thermomyces lunuginosus (TLL), and the recombinant Geobacillus thermocatenulatus (BTL2) were immobilized on Gx for the first time at neutral pH using anthranilic acid (AA) or DTT as additives (immobilization yields >70%; recovered activities 37...

Different immunohistochemical (IHC) assays were approved for PD-L1 expression examination on tumor cells in qualification to immune-checkpoint inhibitors therapy in NSCLC patients. These assays have some similarities, but also very serious differences. We assessed 2 IHC tests for PD-L1 expression evaluation in NSCLC tumors with different pathological diagnoses and genetic abnormalities. We enrolled 48 NSCLC patients (median age: 65 years) with known status of EGFR and ALK genes. We compared the effectiveness of PD-L1 expression examination of two IHC assays with 22C3 (Dako) and SP142 antibodies (Ventana)...

Sapoviruses (SaV) are enteric viruses infecting humans and animals. SaVs are highly diverse and are divided into multiple genogroups based on structural protein (VP1) sequences. SaVs detected from pigs belong to eight genogroups (GIII, GV, GVI, GVII, GVIII, GIX, GX, and GXI), but little is known about the SaV genogroup distribution in the Japanese pig population. In the present study, 26 nearly complete genome (>6000 nucleotide: nt) and three partial sequences (2429nt, 4364nt, and 4419nt in length, including the entire VP1 coding region) of SaV were obtained from one diarrheic and 15 non-diarrheic porcine feces in Japan via a metagenomics approach...

Historically, mRNA measurements have been tested on several commercially available platforms, but none have gained broad acceptance for assessment of HER2. An mRNA measurement, as a continuous value, has the potential for use in adjudication of the equivocal category. Here we use a real-time quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) assay in a closed, single-use cartridge, automated system. Multiple cores (1 mm in diameter) were retrospectively collected from 80 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks with invasive breast cancer seen by Yale Pathology Labs between 1998 and 2011...

A homology model of human CYP27B1 was built using MOE and was further optimised by molecular dynamics simulations of the hCYP27B1 homology model and a hCYP27B1-SDZ-88357 complex. Docking results from the hCYP27B1-SDZ-88357 complex showed amino acids Arg107, Asn387 and Asp320 have an important role in binding interaction, with Asp320 part of the important acid-alcohol pair situated in the I-helix with the conserved sequence (A/G) GX (E/D) (T/S), which assumes an essential role in the binding of an oxygen molecule for catalysis...

Enzyme immobilization can promote several advantages for their industrial application. In this work, a lipase from Hypocrea pseudokoningii was efficiently linked to four chemical supports: agarose activated with cyanogen bromide (CNBr), glyoxyl-agarose (GX), MANAE-agarose activated with glutaraldehyde (GA) and GA-crosslinked with glutaraldehyde. Results showed a more stable lipase with both the GA-crosslinked and GA derivatives, compared to the control (CNBr), at 50 °C, 60 °C and 70 °C. Moreover, all derivatives were stabilized when incubated with organic solvents at 50%, such as ethanol, methanol, n-propanol and cyclohexane...

Elevated blood glucose and increased activities of secreted phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) are strongly linked to coronary heart disease. In this report, our goal was to develop small heterocyclic compound that inhibit sPLA2. The title compounds were also tested against α-glucosidase and α-amylase. This array of enzymes was selected due to their implication in blood glucose regulation and diabetic cardiovascular complications. Therefore, two distinct series of quinoxalinone derivatives were synthesised; 3-[N'-(substituted-benzylidene)-hydrazino]-1H-quinoxalin-2-ones 3a-f and 1-(substituted-phenyl)-5H-[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-a]quinoxalin-4-ones 4a-f...

We recount here the story of the discovery and invention of a family of thermoset resins that are fully biodegradable and plant-based. The resin is prepared by polymerising glycerol, the simplest trialcohol, with citric acid, the simplest abundantly available triacid. Mixing these two chemicals at moderate temperatures begins a multi-step esterification that results in a network-like resin foam. The hardness, brittleness, and toughness of this resin can be controlled by changing the alcohol : acid ratio, the temperature, and the presence of additives...
