High-iron feeding of rodents has been commonly used to model human iron-overload disorders. We recently noted that high-iron consumption impaired growth and caused severe systemic copper deficiency in growing rats, but the mechanism by which this occurred could not be determined due to technical limitations. In the current investigation, we thus utilized mice; first to determine if the same phenomenon occurred in another mammalian species, and secondly since we could assess in vivo copper absorption in mice...

BACKGROUND: The inappropriate elevation of parathormone (PTH), which regulates the process of angiogenesis in parathyroid tissue, causes the changes of activity of enzymes responsible for the removal of free radicals. Parathyroidectomy (PTX) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) lowers the level of PTH and leads to the reduction of risk of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality by normalization of the antioxidant status. Therefore, the aims of the study were to assess the activity of antioxidant enzymes and free radical reaction products in patients after parathyroidectomy, and to evaluate the correlation between the systemic oxidative stress and angiogenic parameters...

CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Cholangiocarcinoma is a cancer of bile duct cells for which no effective biomarker exists. Tumor masses are often not identifiable by imaging modalities as a result of the location of the tumor in the hilum of the liver or within the bile ducts. Because of the problems with obtaining a definitive tissue diagnosis, treatment and management decisions for patients with biliary strictures that may be malignant are difficult. The work presented here highlights the potential role of fucosylated fetuin-A as a biomarker of cholangiocarcinoma and may help in the early detection of this deadly cancer...

Mastitis is the most prevalent disease in dairy cattle worldwide and not only causes huge economic losses in the dairy industry but also threatens public health. To evaluate the therapeutic potential of melatonin in mastitis, we examined the ability of melatonin to protect bovine mammary epithelial cells (bMECs) from the harmful effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). We found that melatonin inhibited the LPS-binding protein-CD14-TLR4 signaling pathway in bMECs, which had opposing effects on pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators...

Oxidative damage and iron redistribution are associated with the pathogenesis and progression of multiple sclerosis (MS), but these aspects are not entirely replicated in rodent experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) models. Here, we report that oxidative burst and injury as well as redistribution of iron are hallmarks of the MS-like pathology in the EAE model in the common marmoset. Active lesions in the marmoset EAE brain display increased expression of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase (p22phox, p47phox, and gp91phox) and inducible nitric oxide synthase immunoreactivity within lesions with active inflammation and demyelination, coinciding with enhanced expression of mitochondrial heat-shock protein 70 and superoxide dismutase 1 and 2...

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a disorder of blood vessels in the retina developed in premature infants and the leading cause of the blindness in children. Proteomic analysis was performed to identify vitreous proteins specific to patients with ROP. Vitreous humor samples were obtained from three patients with ROP and two patients with congenital cataract, the latter included as a control group. The vitreous samples were separated by 2D-PAGE and the proteins running as definitive spots were identified by MALDI-TOF MS spectrometry...

A new method of simultaneous redox speciation of iron (II/III), manganese (II/III), and copper (I/II) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has been designed. For the separation of redox species strong cation exchange chromatography (SCX) with isocratic elution was employed. Species were detected using inductively coupled plasma sector field mass spectrometry (ICP-sf-MS), operating at medium resolution. The following parameters were optimized: analytical column, eluent composition and pH, CSF injection volume and dilution factor...

Wilson's disease is one of many potential differential diagnoses in patients with unknown liver injury or liver cirrhosis. Many patients are diagnosed in early childhood, but rare cases may not be revealed until adulthood, and of these, most present with liver cirrhosis. While some patients can be diagnosed by the examination of serum ceruloplasmin and urinary copper levels, there are patients in whom ATP7B genetic testing and hepatic copper content measurement are indicated. Diagnostic guidelines for Wilson's disease were proposed by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases in 2008, the European Association for the Study of the Liver in 2012, and the Japan Society of Hepatology along with affiliated societies in 2015...

The release of Ag(i) from silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) unintentionally spread in the environment is suspected to impair some key biological functions. In comparison with AgNO3, in-depth investigations were carried out into the interactions between citrate-coated AgNPs (20 nm) and two metalloproteins, intracellular metallothionein 1 (MT1) and plasmatic ceruloplasmin (Cp), both involved in metal homeostasis. These were chosen for their physiological relevance and the diversity of their various native metals bound because of thiol groups and/or their structural differences...

Crescentic glomerulonephritis (Crgn) is a complex disorder where macrophage activity and infiltration are significant effector causes. In previous linkage studies using the uniquely susceptible Wistar Kyoto (WKY) rat strain, we have identified multiple crescentic glomerulonephritis QTLs (Crgn) and positionally cloned genes underlying Crgn1 and Crgn2, which accounted for 40% of total variance in glomerular inflammation. Here, we have generated a back-cross (BC) population (n=166) where Crgn1 and Crgn2 were genetically fixed, and found significant linkage to glomerular crescents on chromosome 2 (Crgn8, LOD=3...
