As marine invertebrates, oysters lack adaptive immunity and employ innate immunity as the front line and almost the solo defense mechanism to protect them against invaders. Accumulating research achievements demonstrated that exosomes could act as innate immune effectors that contribute to host defense mechanism. To better understand the immune functions of exosomes in Crassostrea gigas against bacterial stimulation, RNA-Seq was applied to explore the global expression changes of exosomes in oyster after Staphylococcus aureus and Vibrio splendidus stimulation...

Efficient islet release from the pancreas requires the combination of collagenase, neutral protease (cNP), or thermolysin (TL). Recently, it has been shown that clostripain (CP) may also contribute to efficient islet release from the human pancreas. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of these proteases on human islet integrity in a prospective approach. Islets were isolated from the pancreas of 10 brain-dead human organ donors. Purified islets were precultured for 3 to 4 d at 37 °C to ensure that preparations were cleared of predamaged islets, and only integral islets were subjected to 90 min of incubation at 37 °C in Hank's balanced salt solution supplemented with cNP, TL, or CP...

The dome-binding suture (DBS) and hemitransdomal suture (HTS) are suture techniques used to narrow and define the nasal tip. The DBS can create a pinched, unnatural appearance, while the HTS puts the lateral crus in a more favorable orientation. This allows a natural contour between the nasal tip and alar lobule while maintaining alar margin support. Objective measurement of the rotational axis of the lateral crus between the DBS and the HTS has not been reported in the literature. To determine whether the DBS or HTS technique results in a more favorable rotational axis of the lateral crus as measured by the alar surface septal angle (ASSA)...

The study objective was to determine the effects of trimming the switch of dairy cows on teat-end bacterial counts and udder hygiene scores. Cows (n = 102) were blocked by days in milk, milk production, and parity and then assigned to (a) treatment (trimming of their tail switch using a commercially available trimmer), or (b) control (unaltered tails). Udder hygiene was recorded for cows on Days 0 (initiation of treatment), 32, and 64. A subset of cows (n = 21) was used to assess Streptococci and coliform bacterial populations on teat ends...

Salmonella contamination of ground beef has been viewed as originating from the surface of carcasses. Recent studies have identified lymph nodes as a potential source of Salmonella contamination because these tissues play an active role in containment of pathogens in the live animal and because some lymph nodes are unavoidably present in manufacturing beef trimmings or primal cuts that may be incorporated into ground beef. A survey was conducted of the microbiological status of lymph nodes from Australian cattle at the time of slaughter to determine the prevalence of microbiological contamination...

Powassan virus (POWV) is a tick-borne Flavivirus responsible for life-threatening encephalitis in North America and some regions of Russia. The ticks that have been reported to transmit the virus belong to the Ixodes species, and they feed on small-to-medium-sized mammals, such as Peromyscus leucopus mice, skunks, and woodchucks. We previously developed a P. leucopus mouse model of POWV infection, and the model is characterized by a lack of clinical signs of disease following intraperitoneal or intracranial inoculation...

Colorectal cancer is one of the most frequent malignancies in the world. Tripartite motif containing 24 (TRIM24) is a member of the TRIM protein family and a coregulator for multiple nuclear receptors. Altered expression of TRIM24 has been shown in a spectrum of human cancers. However, the clinical role of TRIM24 in colorectal cancer remains unknown. Here, gene expression data in colorectal cancer and normal tissues were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). Western blotting analysis was conducted to compare TRIM24 expression between colorectal cancer and non-cancerous tissues...

The relationship between biosecurity and digital dermatitis (DD) was evaluated in 8,269 cows from a convenience sample of 39 freestall dairy herds. The hypothesis was that poor implementation of biosecurity was associated with higher within-herd prevalence of DD. All lactating cows were scored as negative or positive for DD at the hind legs during milking in the milking parlor. Information about biosecurity was obtained through questionnaires addressed to farmers, on-farm observations, and information from the Danish Cattle Database (www...
