BACKGROUND: Mutations in the NCF1 gene that encodes p47phox, a subunit of the NADPH oxidase complex, cause chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). In Kavkazi Jews, a c.579G>A (p.Trp193Ter) mutation in NCF1 is frequently found, leading to CGD. The same mutation is found in about 1% of Ashkenazi Jews, although Ashkenazi CGD patients with this mutation have never been described. METHODS: We used Sanger sequencing, multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA), gene scan analysis and Ion Torrent Next Generation Sequencing for genetic analysis, and measured NADPH oxidase activity and p47phox expression...

Plasmodium gametocytes are the sexual forms of the malaria parasite essential for transmission to mosquitoes. To better understand how gametocytes differ from asexual blood-stage parasites, we performed a systematic analysis of available 'omics data for P. falciparum and other Plasmodium species. 18 transcriptomic and proteomic data sets were evaluated for the presence of curated "gold standards" of 41 gametocyte-specific versus 46 non-gametocyte genes and integrated using Bayesian probabilities, resulting in gametocyte-specificity scores for all P...

PURPOSE: The minimally invasive (MI) anterolateral approach is a relatively new approach for the treatment of femoral neck fractures with a hemiarthroplasty (HA). There is limited research available presenting clinical outcomes after an HA using the MI approach. Therefore the aim of the present study was to compare clinical outcomes of the MI and traditional anterolateral approaches in patients after HA. METHODS: Data were extracted from a prospective hip fracture database and completed by retrospective review of the electronic medical records...

Aqueous suspensions of micellar casein (MC) gel when heated above a critical temperature that depends on the pH. The effect of adding CaCl2 and EDTA on thermal gelation was studied in order to assess the effect of increasing or decreasing the amount of bound Ca2+ on the process. The effect of adding NaCl was investigated in order to distinguish the effect of Ca2+ binding from the effect of screening of electrostatic interactions. Shear moduli were measured as a function of the temperature during heating ramps up to 90 °C...

Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are electromagnetic surface waves that travel along the boundary of a metal and a dielectric medium. They can be generated when freely propagating light is scattered by structural metallic features such as gratings or slits. In plasmonics, SPPs are manipulated, amplified, or routed before being converted back into light by a second scattering event. In this process, the light acquires a dynamic phase and perhaps an additional geometric phase associated with polarization changes...

Red blood cell (RBC) clearance is known to occur primarily in the spleen, and is presumed to be executed by red pulp macrophages. Erythrophagocytosis in the spleen takes place as part of the homeostatic turnover of RBCs to remove old RBCs. It can be strongly promoted by immunoglobulin G (IgG) opsonization of RBCs, a condition that can occur as a consequence of autoantibody or alloantibody formation. The purpose of our study was to investigate which phagocytes are involved in IgG-mediated RBC clearance in the human spleen...

OBJECTIVES: Transfusion-associated circulatory overload (TACO) is a severe pulmonary transfusion reaction and leading cause of transfusion-related morbidity and mortality in Europe. TACO is of particular importance in critically ill patients, since they often receive blood transfusions and have multiple risk factors for TACO. This study investigates transfusion practices in patients at risk of developing TACO, and furthermore knowledge concerning risk factors, diagnoses and treatment strategies among Dutch intensive care unit (ICU) fellows...

BACKGROUND: Reconsolidation-based interventions have been suggested to be a promising treatment strategy for substance use disorders. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a working memory intervention to interfere with the reconsolidation of alcohol-related memories in a sample of non-treatment seeking heavy drinkers. METHODS: Participants were randomized to one of the two conditions that underwent a 3-day intervention: in the experimental condition, a 30-min working memory training was performed immediately after a 15-min memory retrieval session (i...

PURPOSE: Decompressive craniectomy (DC) has been proposed as lifesaving treatment in aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) patients with elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). However, data is sparse and controversy exists whether the underlying cause of elevated ICP influences neurological outcome. The purpose of this study is to clarify the role of the underlying cause of elevated ICP on outcome after DC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively studied the one-year neurological outcome in a single-centre cohort to identify predictors of favourable (Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) 4-5) and unfavourable (GOS 1-3) outcome...

We describe how Fourier signal processing techniques can be generalized to partially coherent fields. Using standard coherence theory, we first show that focusing of a partially coherent beam by a lens modifies its coherence properties. We then consider a 4f imaging system composed of two lenses and discuss how spatial filtering in the Fourier plane allows one to tune the coherence properties of the beam. This, in turn, provides control over the beam's directionality, spectrum, and degree of polarization.

The translocation and assembly module (TAM) plays a role in the transport and insertion of proteins into the bacterial outer membrane. TamB, a component of this system spans the periplasmic space to engage with its partner protein TamA. Despite efforts to characterize the TAM, the structure and mechanism of action of TamB remained enigmatic. Here we present the crystal structure of TamB amino acids 963-1,138. This region represents half of the conserved DUF490 domain, the defining feature of TamB. TamB963-1138 consists of a concave, taco-shaped β sheet with a hydrophobic interior...

The complement factor H-related (FHR) proteins are hypothesized to fine-tune the regulatory role of complement factor H (FH) in the alternative pathway of the complement system. Moreover, FHR-1, FHR-2, and FHR-5 have been proposed to be dimers, which further complicates accurate analysis. As FHRs are highly similar among themselves and toward FH, obtaining specific reagents for quantification of serum levels and functional analysis is challenging. In this study, we generated antibodies and developed ELISAs to measure FHR-1, FHR-2, and FHR-5 in serum...

BACKGROUND: Individuals with lower extremity fractures are often instructed on how much weight to bear on the affected extremity. Previous studies have shown limited therapy compliance in weight bearing during rehabilitation. In this study we investigated the effect of real-time visual biofeedback on weight bearing in individuals with lower extremity fractures in two conditions: full weight bearing and touch-down weight bearing. METHODS: 11 participants with full weight bearing and 12 participants with touch-down weight bearing after lower extremity fractures have been measured with an ambulatory biofeedback system...
