Extracts and components of Taxodium ascendens Brongn, an excellent afforestation tree, have exhibited several activities, including antibacterial activity and inhibitory activity on carbonic anhydrase II. However, the anti-hepatocellular carcinoma (anti-HCC) activity of extracts from the leaves of T. ascendens (TALE) remains unclear. In the present study, six diterpenoid compounds were isolated from a TALE extract. Here, the pro-apoptotic activities and the molecular mechanisms of TALE and the compounds 1-6 on HepG2 and Hep3B HCC cells were evaluated...

#2
Nadia M Brashier, Kristi S Multhaup
Magical thinking, or illogical causal reasoning such as superstitions, decreases across childhood, but almost no data speak to whether this developmental trajectory continues across the life span. In four experiments, magical thinking decreased across adulthood. This pattern replicated across two judgment domains and could not be explained by age-related differences in tolerance of ambiguity, domain-specific knowledge, or search for meaning. These data complement and extend findings that experience, accumulated over decades, guides older adults' judgments so that they match, or even exceed, young adults' performance...

Study Design: A retrospective cohort study. Objective: The aim of this study is to assess the association of demographic and perioperative factors with clinical outcomes of lumbar interbody fusion with a porous nitinol (TiNi) implant for degenerative disc disease. Methods: Forty-one patients with degenerative lumbar disease were prospectively followed for a mean of 4.8 years. All patients were instrumented with porous TiNi interbody fusion devices...

The formation of an intracranial abscess secondary to sphenoid sinus occlusion after nasoseptal flap skull base reconstruction has not been previously described. We report such a case that occurred at our institution in a 23-year-old man who underwent flap reconstruction for a cerebrospinal fluid leak. We determined that occlusion of the sphenoid sinus outflow might have played a role in this complication. The patient was treated via a combined surgical and medical approach that entailed a bur-hole craniotomy and endoscopic debridement followed by administration of an intravenous antibiotic...

Although a broad diversity of eukaryotic and bacterial taxa reside on rock surfaces where they can influence the weathering of rocks and minerals, these communities and their contributions to mineral weathering remain poorly resolved. To build a more comprehensive understanding of the diversity, ecology, and potential functional attributes of microbial communities living on rock, we sampled 149 tombstones across three continents and analyzed their bacterial and eukaryotic communities via marker gene and shotgun metagenomic sequencing...

Dhipthi Mulligan
Beginning with the quintessentially psychoanalytic tales of Freud, the case history has held a privileged position in the history and practice of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysts grow up with, grow into, and grow out of these narratives as clinical practitioners. Alongside the representational aspects of these case histories, there is a rhetorical or persuasive force that significantly influences us. The author contends that the theory of narrative and rhetoric can inform the how, the why, and the "so what?" of our relationship to these stories of psychoanalysis...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure prevalence continues to rise in the United States causing significant morbidity and mortality and costing billions in healthcare expenditures. Consensus guidelines updated in 2016 recommend an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNi) as a therapeutic option in lieu of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker for the management of stage C heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). For chronic HFrEF patients with New York Heart Association class II or III symptoms tolerating an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blocker, a change in therapy to an ARNi is recommended to further reduce morbidity and mortality...

OBJECTIVE: Mobile hearing applications (apps) are available for hearing testing, personal sound amplification, as well as hearing aid modulation. Hearing testing apps are gaining popularity, especially in resource-limited settings. The reliability of mobile hearing testing apps, however, is not well characterized. PATIENTS/INTERVENTIONS: A case study of a single patient with a complaint of sudden hearing loss presenting to a tertiary-care hospital. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Comparison of a mobile hearing testing app results with standard audiogram...

A recent proposal that the genus Rymovirus be assimilated into the genus Potyvirus is examined, discussed, and rejected. It illustrates the danger of using 'sequence identity' as a proxy for phylogenetic relatedness to distinguish closely related but distinct groups of viruses.

REVIEW

Reproduction is controlled by the hypothalamic - pituitary - gonadal (HPG) axis. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons play a central role in this axis through production of GnRH, which binds to a membrane receptor on pituitary gonadotrophs and stimulates the biosynthesis and secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Multiple factors affect GnRH neuron migration, GnRH gene expression, GnRH pulse generator, GnRH secretion, GnRH receptor expression, and gonadotropin synthesis and release...

The extracellular domain E2 of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) features a His-rich metal-binding site (denoted as the M1 site). In conjunction with surrounding basic residues, the site participates in interactions with components of the extracellular matrix including heparins, a class of negatively charged polysaccharide molecules of varying length. This work studied the chemistry of Cu(i) binding to APP E2 with the probe ligands Bcs, Bca, Fz and Fs. APP E2 forms a stable Cu(i)-mediated ternary complex with each of these anionic ligands...

Sediments are formed by deposition of organic and inorganic particles on depth of water bodies, being an important role in aquatic ecosystems, including destination and potential source of essential nutrients and heavy metals, which may be toxic for living organisms. The Lake Guaíba supplies water for approximately two million people and it is located in the metropolitan region of Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the sediment pollution in the margins of Lake Guaíba in the vicinity of Porto Alegre city...

A striking and unexpected biochemical phenotype was found in an insertion mutant line in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. One of two investigated insertion mutant lines in the gene encoding the phosphate transporter PHT4;1 demonstrated a prominent loss of trienoic fatty acids, whereas the other insertion line was indistinguishable from wild type in this aspect. We demonstrate that the loss of trienoic fatty acids was due to a remnant inactive negative selection marker gene in this particular transposon tagged line, pht4;1-3...

Storytelling is a human universal. From gathering around the camp-fire telling tales of ancestors to watching the latest television box-set, humans are inveterate producers and consumers of stories. Despite its ubiquity, little attention has been given to understanding the function and evolution of storytelling. Here we explore the impact of storytelling on hunter-gatherer cooperative behaviour and the individual-level fitness benefits to being a skilled storyteller. Stories told by the Agta, a Filipino hunter-gatherer population, convey messages relevant to coordinating behaviour in a foraging ecology, such as cooperation, sex equality and egalitarianism...
