The thermodynamic reasons why membrane proteins form stable complexes inside the hydrophobic lipid bilayer remain poorly understood. This is largely because of a lack of membrane-protein systems amenable for equilibrium studies and a limited number of methods for measuring these reactions. Recently, we reported the equilibrium dimerization of the CLC-ec1 Cl-/H+ transporter in lipid bilayers (Chadda et al. 2016. eLife https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.17438), which provided a new type of model system for studying protein association in membranes...

Importance: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, a lateral curvature of the spine of unknown cause with a Cobb angle of at least 10°, occurs in children and adolescents aged 10 to 18 years. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form and usually worsens during adolescence before skeletal maturity. Severe spinal curvature may be associated with adverse long-term health outcomes (eg, pulmonary disorders, disability, back pain, psychological effects, cosmetic issues, and reduced quality of life)...

Dairy product recalls and dairy-related illnesses are often the result of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, which can occur throughout the dairy production and supply chains. The use of antimicrobial compounds is one practical approach for controlling pathogen survival and growth in foods. The goal of this study was to use fluid milk as a model system to identify listeristatic or listericidal treatments that show promise for application in fluid milk and for further evaluation in other dairy products (e...

Platelet lysate (PL) has been extensively used for the laboratory expansion of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in order to avoid fetal bovine serum (FBS) which has been associated with immune-mediated host reactions and transmission of bovine-origin microbial contaminants. Before suggesting the routine use of PL for MSC culture, we wanted to further investigate whether PL alone might trigger inflammatory responses when exposed to reactive white blood cells such as monocytes. Our objectives were to evaluate the inflammatory profile of equine monocytes cultured with equine PL (ePL) and to determine if ePL can modulate the expression of inflammatory cytokines in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated monocytes...

This report provides a complete review of a rare anatomical variation, the accessory extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon and its clinical significance. We will describe a case of an asymptomatic accessory EPL that was found incidentally during surgery with a tendon located in the fourth extensor compartment. Pulling on it induced extension of the thumb interphalangeal joint. Very few cases of accessory EPL have been previously reported with various muscle origins and tendon insertions. In the literature, three symptomatic cases of accessory EPL were reported with a tendon running in a compartment other than the fourth...

Importance: Menopause occurs at a median age of 51.3 years, and the average US woman who reaches menopause is expected to live another 30 years. The prevalence and incidence of most chronic conditions, such as coronary heart disease, dementia, stroke, fractures, and breast cancer, increase with age; however, the excess risk for these conditions that can be attributed to menopause alone is uncertain. Since the publication of findings from the Women's Health Initiative that hormone therapy use is associated with serious adverse health effects in postmenopausal women, use of menopausal hormone therapy has declined...

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the reliability of the dorsal tangential view (DTV) of the wrist using direct visualization of the extensor compartments in vivo. Twelve patients with extensor tendon complications [nine patients with extensor synovitis, two patients with isolated extensor pollicis longus (EPL) rupture, one patient with EPL and extensor indicis proprius rupture] after volar plating of a distal radius fracture were enrolled in the study. We obtained DTVs in the operating room before implant removal and explored the extensor compartments during synovectomy or tendon reconstruction to confirm suspected screw penetration...

BACKGROUND: The aldosterone inhibitor eplerenone (EPL) has been shown to reduce the incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with systolic heart failure, but the mechanism is unknown. OBJECTIVES: This study hypothesized that by reducing atrial dilation and fibrosis in the absence of heart failure, EPL also reduces AF burden and prevents AF perpetuation. METHODS: The authors conducted a randomized controlled study in 34 sheep that were atrially tachypaced (13 ± 1 week)...

The prognostic value of peripheral blasts (PB) is not well-studied in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). We evaluated the impact of PB on overall survival (OS) and transformation to acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in a large cohort. The MDS database at the Moffitt Cancer Center was retrospectively reviewed to identify patients with ≥ 1% PB (PB-MDS) and those without PB (BM-MDS). We also assessed the correlation between PB and gene mutations. One thousand seven hundred fifty-eight patients were identified, among whom 13% had PB near the time of diagnosis...

STUDY QUESTION: Do microRNAs (miRNAs) contribute to human early pregnancy loss (EPL)? SUMMARY ANSWER: miR-378a-3p expression is regulated by progesterone and is down-regulated in ducidua of EPL patients which may contribute to decidual apoptosis through Caspase-3 activation. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: A variety of miRNAs have been demonstrated to be associated with the development of decidualization and placental formation. However, little has been reported on the roles of miRNA in the pathogenesis of EPL...

INTRODUCTION: According to the anatomical literature, the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) tendon passes through the first compartment and enters the base of the proximal phalanx of the thumb. There have been a few reports on the different types of supernumerary EPB tendons; however, an unusual course of the EPB tendon is extremely rare. MATERIALS AND METHODS: During routine cadaveric dissection in the Department of Gross Anatomy, we detected an variant EPB muscle in a 96-year-old fresh female cadaver...

This paper examines three cases of spontaneous ruptures of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) with the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) deformity. The patients ranged from 39 to 71 years old. Non-dominant hands were involved in all three cases. There were no trauma nor pathological cause of EPL ruptures. A tendon transfer using the extensor indicis proprius was performed in each case. Intraoperative findings showed hypoplastic EPB in one case and EPB defects in two cases. A weak or defective EPB puts an excessive load on the EPL, which might be one of the causes of spontaneous EPL rupture...

Isoflavone itself is less available in the body without the aid of intestinal bacteria. In this study, we searched the isoflavone transforming bacterium from human fecal specimen (n=14) using differential selecting media. Isoflavone transforming activity as the production of dihydrogenistein (DHG) and dihydrodaidzein (DHD) was assessed by high performance liquid chromatography and found Lactobacillus rhamnosus, named L. rhamnosus vitaP1 through 16s rDNA sequence analysis. Extract from Pueraria lobata (EPL) and Soy hypocotyl extract were fermented with L...

In a recent letter (P. Oswald et al., EPL 103, 46004 (2013)), we have shown that a smectic-A phase hardens in compression normal to the layers when the liquid crystal is doped with gold nanoparticles. This is due to the formation of Cottrell clouds nearby the core of the edge dislocations and the appearance of an additional drag force that reduces their mobility. We theoretically calculate the shape of the Cottrell cloud and the associated drag force as a function of the climb velocity of the dislocations. The main result is that the drag force depends on velocity and vanishes when the temperature tends to the smectic-A-to-nematic transition temperature...

A persistent problem in early small-molecule drug discovery is the frequent lack of rank-order correlation between biochemical potencies derived from initial screens using purified proteins and the diminished potency and efficacy observed in subsequent disease-relevant cellular phenotypic assays. The introduction of the cellular thermal shift assay (CETSA) has bridged this gap by enabling assessment of drug target engagement directly in live cells based on ligand-induced changes in protein thermal stability...

The purpose of this case report is to describe the value of musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) in diagnosing both distal intersection syndrome (DIS) and rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon in the same patient. A 38-year-old female presented for evaluation of a painful bump of unknown etiology on the dorsolateral aspect of her non-dominant wrist. US demonstrated tenosynovitis distal to Lister's tubercle of the EPL and extensor carpi radialis tendon sheaths, consistent with DIS. Immobilization therapy was employed, during which time the patient suffered rupture of the EPL tendon...

Importance: One of the most important causes of vision abnormalities in children is amblyopia (also known as "lazy eye"). Amblyopia is an alteration in the visual neural pathway in a child's developing brain that can lead to permanent vision loss in the affected eye. Among children younger than 6 years, 1% to 6% have amblyopia or its risk factors (strabismus, anisometropia, or both). Early identification of vision abnormalities could prevent the development of amblyopia. Subpopulation Considerations: Studies show that screening rates among children vary by race/ethnicity and family income...

Insect cellular immune reactions differ depending on the target species. Phagocytosis is activated to scavenge microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. On the other hand, larger invaders such as parasitoid wasps are eliminated by activation of encapsulation. In this study, we hypothesized that novel determinants regulate cellular immunities independent of surface molecular pattern recognition involving pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Immune-related genes differentially expressed depending on the treated material size were screened in larval hemocytes of the rice armyworm, Mythimna separata...
