Our understanding on the importance of viral lysis in the functioning of tropical estuarine ecosystem is limited. This study examines viral infection of prokaryotes and subsequent lysis of cells belonging to different morphotypes across a salinity gradient in monsoon driven estuarine ecosystem (Cochin estuary, India). High standing stock of viruses and prokaryotes accompanied by lytic infection rates in the euryhaline/mesohaline region of the estuary suggests salinity to have an influential role in driving interactions between prokaryotes and viruses...

The significance of lytic viral lysis in shaping bacterial communities in temperate freshwater systems is less documented. Here we used Illumina sequencing of 16S rRNA genes to examine bacterial community structure and diversity in relation to variable viral lysis in the euphotic zone of 25 temperate freshwater lakes (French Massif Central). We captured a rich bacterial community that was dominated by a few bacterial classes and operational taxonomic units (OTUs) frequently detected in other freshwater ecosystems...

Viruses are recognized as the most abundant and dynamic biological entities in the marine and estuarine environment. However, studies on the dynamics and activity of viruses in transient estuarine systems are limited. This study examines temporal and spatial variations in viral abundance (VA) and viral activity across the salinity gradient in a monsoon-driven tropical estuarine system (Cochin estuary, CE) along the southwest coast of India. Water samples were collected from five stations (with different hydrological settings) every 3 h for 24 h period during two distinct seasons, namely pre-monsoon (PRM, dry season) and monsoon (MON, wet season)...

The current consensus concerning the viral regulation of prokaryotic carbon metabolism is less well-studied, compared to substrate availability. We explored the seasonal and vertical distribution of viruses and its relative influence on prokaryotic carbon metabolism in a hypereutrophic reservoir, Lake Villerest (France). Flow cytometry and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses to determine viral abundance (VA; range = 6.1-63.5 × 10(7) ml(-1)) and viral infection rates of prokaryotes (range = 5.3-32%) respectively suggested that both the parameters varied more significantly with depths than with seasons...

We sampled the surface waters (2-50 m) of two deep peri-alpine lakes over a 1-year period in order to examine (1) the abundance, vertical distribution, genome size, and morphology structures of the virioplankton; (2) the virus-mediated bacterial mortality; and (3) the specific genome size range of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) phytoplankton viruses. Virus-like particle (VLP) concentrations varied between 4.16 × 10(7) (January) and 2.08 × 10(8) part mL(-1) (May) in Lake Bourget and between 2.7 × 10(7) (June) and 8...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to explore the relationship between increased plasma osteoprotegerin (OPG) levels and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS: Plasma OPG levels from 85 subjects undergoing coronary artery angiography in three different groups, including ACS (n=45), stable angia pectoris (SAP) (n=20) and normal coronary artery (NCA) (n=20), were detected by ELISA. Twenty-two ascending aorta specimens were surgically taken from 8 ACS, 7 SAP and 7 NCA patients, and OPG mRNA expression in the specimens was detected by RT-PCR...

For aquatic systems, there is little data on the interactions between viruses, prokaryotes, grazers and the availability of resources. We conducted a microcosm experiment using a size fractionation approach to manipulate grazers, with a purpose to examine the effects of inorganic and organic nutrients on viral and prokaryotic standing stocks and activities, and on prokaryotic community composition as assessed by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) method. Experiments were performed during periods of severe phosphate (P)-limiting conditions in the oligotrophic Sep Reservoir (Massif Central, France)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the action of platelet surface activity protein (platelet granule membrane protein CD63 and lysosome membrane protein CD62P), plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) and C-reactive protein (C-RP) in occurrence and development of unstable angina pectoris (UAP), and the effect of Puerarin on them. METHODS: Patients with UAP were randomly divided into the treated group (32 cases, treated with Puerarin) and the control group (27 cases, treated with Ticlid), the therapeutic course was 4 weeks for both groups...

Whether chylomicronemia is atherogenic or not has yet to be determined in humans. We investigated a 66-yr-old female with severe chylomicronemia resulting from a lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency. The patient's plasma triglyceride level was approximately 2000 mg/dl. Both LPL activity and the mass of postheparin plasma in this patient were virtually absent. A nonsense mutation in exon 3 (Tyr61-->Stop) was identified in the patient's LPL gene, and a restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis established that the patient was homozygous for this mutation...

A prospective randomized study comparing coronary bypass surgery (group 1, 51 patients) to drug therapy (group 2, 49 patients) was initiated in 1981. Supine graded exercise testing (SGXT) was performed initially, at 6 months, and annually with a bicycle ergometer. The presence or absence of ischemic ST segment changes (positive or negative SGXT) and chest pain were recorded. Initially, 63% of all patients had positive SGXT. For group 2, the frequency of positive SGXT results did not change significantly at 6 months (58%) or at 5 years (52%)...

Although unusual, coronary artery disease does occur in young women. It may be present to a severe degree between ages 20 and 30, but a typical history of angina pectoris by no means assures the presence of significant coronary artery disease. Proof that oral contraceptives predispose to coronary artery disease is lacking. It seems wise not to recommend them to young women with other known risk factors. Significant risk factors in a group of 1000 women under age 50 studied by cinecoronary arteriography for the evaluation of chest pain included cigarette smoking, hypertension, hypercholesteremia, and glucose intolerance...
