Fluorogenic probes targeting G-quadruplex structures have emerged as the promising toolkit for functional research of G-quadruplex and biosensor development. However, their biosensing applications are still largely limited in in-tube detection. Herein, we proposed a fluorescent bioimaging method based on enzyme-generated G-quadruplexes for detecting apoptotic cells at the cell and tissue level, namely, terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-activated de novo G-quadruplex synthesis (TAGS) assay. The detection target is genomic DNA fragmentation, a biochemical hallmark of apoptosis...

The classical transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) based on a trio design uses information only on the allele transmitted by a heterozygous parent at a marker locus as homozygous parents are non-informative about linkage. However, the phenotype of an offspring depends on the alleles transmitted by both parents, irrespective of whether the parents are homozygous or heterozygous, and hence carry useful information on association. In this article, we propose modifications to the TDT procedures by incorporating transmission data on both parents in an informative trio to explore possible gain in power in detecting association...

A 75-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with suspected leukemia. Complete blood count demonstrated WBC 3,810/µl with 26% blasts, Hb of 11.7 g/dl and Plt of 18.0×10(4)/µl. Bone marrow aspiration revealed blasts (86.3%) with expressions of CD34, CD7, TdT, CD33, and CD117. MPO was negative. Chromosomal analysis of the bone marrow showed isolated trisomy 10 in all leukemic cells (20/20). Swelling of superficial lymph nodes was also observed. Cervical lymph node biopsy revealed leukemic blasts which had the same phenotype as those in the bone marrow except that proliferation of Langerhans cell-like cells (LCs) was observed in the paracortex...

BACKGROUND: Normal thymocyte precursors in secondary lymphoid organs have previously been described. It is important to recognize normal thymocyte precursors by flow cytometry to differentiate them from T-cell lymphoblastic leukemia. METHODS: A 3-year-old boy status 2 years post-allogenic cardiac transplant underwent adenoidectomy to exclude post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder. Microscopic, immunohistochemical, and flow cytometry analyses of the adenoid were performed...

Lychee seed is a traditional Chinese medicine and possesses many activities, including hypoglycemia, liver protection, antioxidation, antivirus, and antitumor. However, its effect on neuroprotection is still unclear. The present study investigated the effects of lychee seed saponins (LSS) on neuroprotection and associated mechanisms. We established a rat model of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by injecting Aβ25-35 into the lateral ventricle of rats and evaluated the effect of LSS on spatial learning and memory ability via the Morris water maze...

Here, we describe a method for locating DNA on ultrathin sections. This technique is compatible with all usual fixation and embedding procedures and can be combined with cytochemical methods. Ultrathin sections are incubated in a medium containing terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) and various non-isotopic nucleotide analogs. The labeled nucleotides bound to the surface of ultrathin sections are then visualized by an indirect immunogold labeling technique. This high-resolution method provides a powerful tool for pinpointing the precise location of DNA within biological material, even where DNA is present in very low amounts...

BACKGROUND: 20(S)-Protopanaxadiol 20-O-D-glucopyranoside, also called compound K (CK), exerts antidiabetic effects that are mediated by insulin secretion through adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels in pancreatic β-cells. However, the antidiabetic effects of CK may be limited because of its low bioavailability. METHODS: In this study, we aimed to enhance the antidiabetic activity and lower the toxicity of CK by including it with β-cyclodextrin (CD) (CD-CK), and to determine whether the CD-CK compound enhanced pancreatic islet recovery, compared to CK alone, in an alloxan-induced diabetic zebrafish model...

We managed a patient with an Epstein-Barr virus-associated T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Mediastinal tumor cells at initial admission were positive for CD4, CD8, and TdT. Interestingly, a lymph node at necropsy was compatible for a CD4-positive peripheral T-cell lymphoma without CD8 and TdT expression, suggesting a different phenotype from the mediastinal tumor. Tumor cells in pleural effusion continued to proliferate in in vitro and were designated as WILL4. WILL4 cells were positive for CD3, CD4, CD8, CD21, T-cell receptor (TcR) αβ, and TdT, indicating a similar phenotype to thymocytes...

The temporal discrimination threshold (TDT) is the shortest time interval at which an individual detects two stimuli to be asynchronous (normal  =  30-50 ms). It has been shown to be abnormal in patients with disorders affecting the basal ganglia including adult onset idiopathic focal dystonia (AOIFD). Up to 97% of patients have an abnormal TDT with age- and sex-related penetrance in unaffected relatives, demonstrating an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. These findings support the use of the TDT as a pre-clinical biomarker for AOIFD...

The temporal discrimination threshold (TDT) is a proposed pre-clinical biomarker (endophenotype) for adult onset isolated focal dystonia (AOIFD). Age- and sex-related effects on temporal discrimination demonstrate that women, before the age of 40 years, have faster temporal discrimination than men but their TDTs worsen with age at almost three times the rate of men. Thus after 40 years the TDT in women is progressively worse than in men. AOIFD is an increasingly female-predominant disorder after the age of 40; it is not clear whether this age-related sexually-dimorphic difference observed for both the TDT and sex ratio at disease onset in AOIFD is a hormonal or chromosomal effect...

The abundance of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is associated with atrial fibrillation (AF), the most frequent cardiac arrhythmia. However, both the origin and the factors involved in EAT expansion are unknown. Here, we found that adult human atrial epicardial cells were highly adipogenic through an epithelial-mesenchymal transition both in vitro and in vivo. In a genetic lineage tracing the WT1(CreERT2+/-)Rosa(tdT+/-) mouse model subjected to a high-fat diet, adipocytes of atrial EAT derived from a subset of epicardial progenitors...

Clinical studies indicate that thrombocytopenia correlates with the development of severe falciparum malaria, suggesting that platelets either contribute to control of parasite replication possibly as innate parasite killer cells or function in eliciting pathogenesis. Removal of platelets by anti-CD41 mAb treatment, platelet inhibition by aspirin, and adoptive transfer of WT platelets to CD40-KO mice, which do not control parasite replication, resulted in similar parasitemia compared with control mice. Human platelets at a physiological ratio of 1 platelet to 9 RBCs did not inhibit the in vitro development or replication of blood-stage P...

BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence indicates that microRNAs are involved in various cellular processes, including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and metastasis. miR-15a is an important regulator of immune responses and angiogenesis, endogenous controls as well as potential targets and hallmarks of cancer. However, the role of miR-15a in intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) has not been elucidated. METHODS: Total RNA was extracted from degenerative nucleus pulposus (NP) tissues of 20 patients with IDD and NP cells, respectively...

We investigated the functional overlap of two muscle Troponin C (TpnC) genes that are expressed in the adult fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster: TpnC4 is predominantly expressed in the indirect flight muscles (IFM), whereas TpnC41C is the main isoform in the tergal depressor of the trochanter muscle (TDT or jump muscle). Using CRISPR/Cas9, we created a transgenic line with a homozygous deletion of TpnC41C, and compared its phenotype to a line lacking functional TpnC4 We found that the removal of either of these genes leads to expression of the other isoform in both muscle types...

A family-based study design is commonly used in gene mapping studies of complex human diseases. Most family-based studies use the transmission of alleles to assess evidence of association. It is generally believed that the transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) is robust against spurious association due to population stratification or admixture. While this is true when population stratification is due to discrete population structure, one should use the TDT-type methods with caution when they are applied to admixed populations in which population structure exists in local genomic regions...
