BACKGROUND: Recent changes in deceased donor organ allocation for livers (Share-35) and kidneys (KAS) have resulted in broader sharing of organs and increased cold ischemia time (CIT). Broader organ sharing however is not the only cause of increased CIT. METHODS: This was a retrospective registry study of CIT in same-hospital liver transplants (SHLT, n=4,347) and kidney transplants (SHKT, n=9,707) between 2004 and 2014. RESULTS: In SHLT, median (IQR) CIT was 5...

Hammondia heydorni is a coccidian parasite believed to be nonpathogenic for naturally-infected animals, but it is biologically and genetically related to Neospora caninum, a worldwide cause of abortion in cattle. The major aim of the present work was to determine whether dogs shed H. heydorni oocysts after consuming in vitro generated tissue cysts of the parasite. In addition, we investigated cross-immunity between H. heydorni and N. caninum in mice. Two dogs were fed cultured cells containing tissue cysts of H...

Intestinal absorption of cadmium (Cd) is considered to be mediated mainly by the ferrous iron transporter DMT1, or the calcium transporter CaT1. The roles of zinc transporters such as ZIP8 and ZIP14 remain unclear, and the roles of these four transporters in the intestinal uptake of Cd under physiological conditions have not been compared. Here, we used a trans-well cell culture system to investigate the effects of the down-regulation of these four transporters on the uptake of Cd from the apical side of enterocytes...

The foot is rarely the focus of osteoid osteoma, and only a few of those cases are related to the fifth metatarsal. The present case demonstrates that atypical symptoms with suspicious findings on plain radiographs that are not associated with trauma must be analyzed carefully to determine the nature of the lesion and perform the precise treatment to obtain and sustain the cure. A 29-year-old man presented to the outpatient clinic with a 2-year history of chronic pain in the lateral aspect of his left forefoot...

Molecular theory of solvation, a.k.a. three-dimensional reference interaction site model theory of solvation with Kovalenko-Hirata closure relation (3D-RISM-KH), is an accurate and fast theory predicting solvation free energy and structure. Here we report a benchmark study of n-Octanol solvation free energy calculations using this theory. The choice of correct force field parameters is quintessential for the success of 3D-RISM theory, and we present a guideline to obtain them for n-Octanol solvent. Our best prediction of the solvation free energy on a set of 205 small organic molecules supplemented with the so-called "Universal Correction" scheme yields relative mean unsigned error of 0...

The chromatoid body (CB) is a specific cloud-like structure in the cytoplasm of haploid spermatids. Recent findings indicate that CB is identified as a male germ cell specific RNA storage and processing center, but its function has remained elusive for decades. In somatic cells, KH-type splicing regulatory protein (KSRP) is involved in regulating gene expression and maturation of select microRNAs (miRNAs). However, the function of KSRP in spermatogenesis remains unclear. In this study, we showed that KSRP partly localizes in CB, as a component of CB...

Intranasal administration of pharmaceutical compounds is gaining considerable attention as an alternative route for localized/systemic drug delivery. However, insufficient therapeutic efficacy of drugs via this route seems to be a major challenge for development of de novo intranasal formulations. This shortcoming can be overcome by simultaneous utilization of a nanoparticulate delivery system with a polymeric gel network. Therefore, the main aim of the present study was to develop erodible in-situ gel forming systems of poloxamer 407(®) (P407) as a promising platform, capable of prolonging rivastigmine hydrogen tartrate (RHT) release from the embedded poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles (NPs)...

A new three-finger toxin nakoroxin was isolated from the cobra Naja kaouthia venom, and its complete amino acid sequence was established. Nakoroxin belongs to the group of "orphan" toxins, data on the biological activity of which are practically absent. Nakoroxin shows no cytotoxicity and does not inhibit the binding of α-bungarotoxin to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors of muscle and α7 types. However, it potentiates the binding of α-bungarotoxin to the acetylcholine-binding protein from Lymnaea stagnalis...

This study reported a simple fabrication method for a durable superhydrophobic surface. The superhydrophobic top layer of the durable superhydrophobic surface was connected intensely to the substrate through a middle connecting layer. Glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (KH-560) after hydrolysis was used to obtain a hydrophilic middle connecting layer. It could be adhered to the hydrophilic substrate by covalent bonds. Ring-open reaction with octadecylamine let the KH-560 middle layer form a net-like structure...

In primary culture of mouse hippocampal neurons, peptide EDR (200 ng/ml) under conditions of amyloid synaptotoxicity (a model of Alzheimer's disease) increased the number of mushroom spines by 71% and returned this parameter to the normal level. Under the same conditions, tripeptide KED (200 ng/ml) increased the number of mushroom spines in hippocampal neurons by 20%. Tripeptide EDR can be recommended for further experimental study as a candidate neuroprotective agent for prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease...

Catalytic carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions of weakly acidic carbon pronucleophiles with N-aryl imines, α,β-unsaturated amides, and others under proton-transfer conditions were developed by designing strongly basic reaction intermediates known as product bases. The reactions proceed smoothly in the presence of a catalytic amount of strong base such as KH or alkaline metal amides. Modification of the metal cations by using chiral macrocyclic crown ethers allowed catalytic asymmetric 1,4-addition reactions to proceed with high enantioselectivities...

MEX-3 is a KH domain-containing RNA-binding protein, first identified as a translational repressor in Caenorhabditis elegans, while its four orthologs (MEX-3A-D) in human and mouse were subsequently found to have E3 ubiquitin ligase activity mediated by a RING domain and critical for RNA degradation. Current evidence implicates human MEX-3C in many essential biological processes and suggests a strong connection with immune diseases and carcinogenesis. The highly conserved dual KH domains in MEX-3 proteins enable RNA binding and are essential for the recognition of the 3' UTR and posttranscriptional regulation of MEX-3 target transcripts...
