A selective nonenzymatic glucose sensor was developed based on the direct oxidation of glucose on hierarchical CuCo bimetal-coated with a glucose-imprinted polymer (GIP). Glucose was introduced into the GIP composed of Nafion and polyurethane along with aminophenyl boronic acid (APBA), which was formed on the bimetal electrode formed on a screen-printed electrode. The extraction of glucose from the GIP allowed for the selective permeation of glucose into the bimetal electrode surface for oxidation. The GIP-coated bimetal sensor probe was characterized using electrochemical and surface analytical methods...

BACKGROUND: Manipulating maternal nutrition during specific periods of gestation can result in re-programming of fetal and post-natal development. In this experiment we investigated how a feed restriction of 85% compared with 140% of total metabolizable energy requirements, fed to cows during mid-to-late gestation, influences phenotypic development of fetuses and mRNA expression of growth (Insulin-Like Growth Factor family and Insulin Receptor (INSR)), myogenic (Myogenic Differentiation 1 (MYOD1), Myogenin (MYOG), Myocyte Enhancer Factor 2A (MEF2A), Serum Response Factor (SRF)) and adipogenic (Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor Gamma (PPARG)) genes in fetal longissimus dorsi (LD) and semitendinosus (ST) muscle...

The present study was focused on Cr(VI) removal using eco-friendly materials like cellulose (Cel), hydrotalcite (HT), hydroxyapatite (HAp) and their composite forms. The cellulose/hydrotalcite (CelHT) and cellulose/hydroxyapatite (CelHAp) composites were synthesized by dispersing HT and HAp individually in cellulose polymeric matrix. To enhance the Cr(VI) sorption capacity (SC) and easy separation, cellulose supported magnetic composites namely iron-oxide coated cellulose/hydrotalcite (Fe3O4@CelHT) and cellulose/hydroxyapatite (Fe3O4@CelHAp) were synthesized by in situ fabrication method...

Mobile apps are offered in large numbers and have different qualities. The aim of this article was to develop a rating tool based on formal and content-related criteria for the assessment of cancer apps and to test its applicability on apps. After a thorough analysis of the literature, we developed a specific rating tool for cancer apps based on the MARS (mobile app rating system) and a rating tool for cancer websites. This instrument was applied to apps freely available in stores and focusing on some cancer topic...

Children born to obese mothers are at increased risk for obesity, but the mechanisms behind this association are not fully understood. Our study aimed to investigate differences in the functions encoded by the microbiome of infants at 18 months of age when the transition from early infant-feeding to solid family foods is established. To investigate the impact of maternal prepregnancy body mass index on infants' gut microbiome, faecal samples from infants born to normoweight (n = 21) and obese mothers (n = 18) were analysed by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and a functional-inference-based microbiome analysis...

A novel glycoprotein imprinting strategy was proposed and was applied to the detection of the carbohydrate antigen 19-9. The glycosylated complex of glycoprotein was used as template to construct a glycosyl imprinted sensor. The eluted imprinted cavities showed good affinity for template glycosyls and glycoproteins carrying template glycosyl. The effect of template saccharide structure on glycosyl imprinted sensors is further discussed. More complex template structures can lead to better sensor performance including selectivity and sensitivity...

REVIEW
Deborah J G Mackay
Epigenetic regulation orchestrates gene expression with exquisite precision, over a huge dynamic range and across developmental space and time, permitting genomically-homogeneous humans to develop and adapt to their surroundings. Every generation, these epigenetic marks are re-set twice: in the germline, to enable differentiation of sperm and eggs, and at fertilisation, to create the totipotent zygote that then begins growth and differentiation into a new human. A small group of genes evades the second, zygotic wave of epigenetic reprogramming, and these genes retain an epigenetic 'imprint' of the parent from whom they were inherited...

Monodisperse molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for warfarin (WF) and coumachlor (CC), MIPWF and MIPCC, respectively, were prepared using 4-vinylpyridine (4-VPY) as a functional monomer and ethylene glycole dimethacrylate (EDMA) as a crosslinker by multi-step swelling and polymerization. Six kinds of MIPWF, MIPWF1 - MIPWF6, were prepared varying the concentrations of WF and 4-VPY, while maintaining the EDMA concentration constant, and their retention and molecular recognition properties were evaluated using a mixture of sodium phosphate buffer and acetonitrile as a mobile phase in LC...

Spontaneous parthenogenetic and androgenetic events occur in humans, but they result in tumours: the ovarian teratoma and the hydatidiform mole, respectively. However, the observation of fetiform (ovarian) teratomas, the serependious identification of several chimeric human parthenotes and androgenotes in the last two decades, along with the creation of viable bi-maternal mice in the laboratory based on minor genetic interferences, raises the question of whether natural cases of clinically healthy human parthenotes have gone unnoticed to science...

Preliminary findings based on earlier retrospective studies of 229 wartime head injuries managed by the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC)/National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) Neurosurgery Service during the period 2003-08 detected a threefold rise in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) manifestations (10.45%) among Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) having concomitant vestibulocochlear injuries compared to 3% for the TBI group without vestibulo-cochlear damage (VCD), prompting the authors to undertake a more focused study of the vestibulo-auditory pathway in explaining the development of posttraumatic stress disorder manifestations among the mostly Blast-exposed head-injured...

BACKGROUND: Pre-implantation embryos exhibit sexual dimorphisms in both primates and rodents. To determine whether these differences reflected sex-biased expression patterns, we generated transcriptome profiles for six 40,XX, six 40,XY, and two 39,X mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells by RNA sequencing. RESULTS: We found hundreds of coding and non-coding RNAs that were differentially expressed between male and female cells. Surprisingly, the majority of these were autosomal and included RNA encoding transcription and epigenetic and chromatin remodeling factors...

The preconception environment is a significant modifier of dysgenesis and the development of environmentally-induced disease. To date, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) have been exclusively associated with maternal exposures, yet emerging evidence suggests male-inherited alterations in the developmental program of sperm may be relevant to the growth-restriction phenotypes of this condition. Using a mouse model of voluntary consumption, we find chronic preconception male ethanol exposure associates with fetal growth restriction, decreased placental efficiency, abnormalities in cholesterol trafficking, sex-specific alterations in the genetic pathways regulating hepatic fibrosis, and disruptions in the regulation of imprinted genes...

For the last four decades, we have known that noncoding RNAs maintain critical housekeeping functions such as transcription, RNA processing, and translation. However, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the advent of high-throughput sequencing technologies and computational tools to analyze these large sequencing datasets facilitated the discovery of thousands of small and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and their functional role in diverse biological functions. For example, lncRNAs have been shown to regulate dosage compensation, genomic imprinting, pluripotency, cell differentiation and development, immune response, etc...

The integration of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) with MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS) combines MIP selectivity with MS sensitivity. Whether the size of the MIP material-micro versus nano-has an effect on the MS analysis was the object of the study. MIPs, targeting respectively the epitope peptide NR11 of cardiac troponin I and the peptide CK13 of human serum transferrin, were synthesized and characterized. The size-related performance of the MIP materials hyphenated with MALDI-TOF-MS analysis was studied by the incubation of the target peptide with the respective micro- or nano-MIP, followed by rinsing to remove non-specific deposition of the MIP to the MALDI target plate, co-crystallization with the organic matrix, and mass analysis...

BACKGROUND: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage and is commonly preceded by oral premalignant lesions. The mortality rates have remained unchanged (50% within 5 years after diagnosis), and it is related to tobacco smoking and alcohol intake. Novel molecular markers for early diagnosis are urgently needed. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of methylation level in a set of 18 genes by bisulfite next-generation sequencing...

In flowering plants the female gametophyte controls pollen tube reception immediately before fertilization and regulates seed development immediately after fertilization, although controlling mechanisms remain poorly understood. Previously, we showed that LORELEI (LRE), which encodes a putative glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored membrane protein, is critical for pollen tube reception by the female gametophyte before fertilization and initiation of seed development after fertilization. Here, we show that LRE is expressed in the synergid, egg, and central cells of the female gametophyte and in the zygote and proliferating endosperm of the seed...

Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs) are tissue homeostatic and immune modulatory cells that have shown beneficial effects in kidney diseases and transplantation. Perivascular Stromal Cells (PSCs) share characteristics with bone marrow MSCs (bmMSCs). However, they also possess, most likely due to local imprinting, tissue-specific properties and play a role in local tissue homeostasis. This tissue specificity may result in tissue specific repair, also within the human kidney. We previously showed that human kidney PSCs (kPSCs) have enhanced kidney epithelial wound healing whereas bmMSCs did not have this potential...
