Corals build their skeletons using extracellular calcifying fluid located in the tissue-skeleton interface. However, the mechanism by which corals control the transport of calcium and other ions from seawater and the mechanism of constant alkalization of calcifying fluid are largely unknown. To address these questions, we performed direct pH imaging at calcification sites (subcalicoblastic medium, SCM) to visualize active pH upregulation in live aposymbiotic primary coral polyps treated with HCl-acidified seawater...

OBJECTIVE: Donor blood transfusion has been identified as a potential risk factor for primary graft dysfunction and by extension early mortality. We sought to define the contributing risk of donor transfusion on early mortality for lung transplant. METHODS: Donor and recipient data were abstracted from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network database updated through June 30, 2014, which included 86,398 potential donors and 16,255 transplants. Using the United Network for Organ Sharing 4-level designation of transfusion (no blood, 1-5 units, 6-10 units, and >10 units, massive), we analyzed all-cause mortality at 30-days with the use of logistic regression adjusted for confounders (ischemic time, donor age, recipient diagnosis, lung allocation score and recipient age, and recipient body mass index)...

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) vary among countries in terms of availability of modalities, affordability of health care resource, health care policy and cultural background. This may be the case in different countries in Eastern Asia. The aim of this study was to determine and understand the differences in diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of IBD between Japan and the rest of Asian countries (ROA). METHODS: Questionnaires with regard to clinical practice in IBD were distributed to members of the International Gastroenterology Consensus Symposium Study Group...

PURPOSE: It has been hypothesized that intratumoral estrogens may play important roles in the growth of breast cancer. However, few studies have investigated such intratumoral hormones, or their association with risk factors of breast cancer. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, hormone levels in paired serum and tumor tissue samples from 146 postmenopausal women with breast cancer were measured by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and compared between estrogen/progesterone (ER/PgR) subtypes...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine factors that contribute to bone cutting errors of conventional instrumentation for tibial resection in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) as assessed by an image-free navigation system. The hypothesis is that preoperative varus alignment is a significant contributory factor to tibial bone cutting errors. METHODS: This was a prospective study of a consecutive series of 72 TKAs. The amount of the tibial first-cut errors with reference to the planned cutting plane in both coronal and sagittal planes was measured by an image-free computer navigation system...

All restriction enzymes examined are phosphodiesterases generating 3'-OH and 5'-P ends, but one restriction enzyme (restriction glycosylase) excises unmethylated bases from its recognition sequence. Whether its restriction activity involves endonucleolytic cleavage remains unclear. One report on this enzyme, R.PabI from a hyperthermophile, ascribed the breakage to high temperature while another showed its weak AP lyase activity generates atypical ends. Here, we addressed this issue in mesophiles. We purified R...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most drug-resistant malignancies, and an effective therapy is lacking for metastatic RCC. Anisomycin is known to inhibit protein synthesis and induce ribotoxic stress. The aim of this study was to explore whether anisomycin enhances the cytotoxic effects of mapatumumab, a human agonistic monoclonal antibody specific for death receptor 4 (DR4), in human RCC cells. We examined the cytotoxicity of anisomycin alone and in combination with mapatumumab in human RCC cell lines and primary RCC cell cultures...

OBJECTIVE: The indications for endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in patients with early gastric cancer (EGC) have been expanded. However, the long-term outcomes of ESD remain unclear. We retrospectively investigated the long-term outcomes of ESD in patients with EGC. METHODS: We retrospectively studied patients with EGC who underwent ESD at 11 institutions between January 2003 and December 2010. A total of 6456 patients (7979 lesions) who met the absolute indications for ESD and 4202 patients (5781 lesions) who met the expanded indications for ESD were studied...

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) evokes various physiological responses through a series of G protein-coupled receptors known as LPA1-6. A high throughput screen against LPA1 gave compound 7a as a hit. The subsequent optimization of 7a led to ONO-7300243 (17a) as a novel, potent LPA1 antagonist, which showed good efficacy in vivo. The oral dosing of 17a at 30 mg/kg led to reduced intraurethral pressure in rats. Notably, this compound was equal in potency to the α1 adrenoceptor antagonist tamsulosin, which is used in clinical practice to treat dysuria with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)...

To explore the origins and consequences of tetraploidy in the African clawed frog, we sequenced the Xenopus laevis genome and compared it to the related diploid X. tropicalis genome. We characterize the allotetraploid origin of X. laevis by partitioning its genome into two homoeologous subgenomes, marked by distinct families of 'fossil' transposable elements. On the basis of the activity of these elements and the age of hundreds of unitary pseudogenes, we estimate that the two diploid progenitor species diverged around 34 million years ago (Ma) and combined to form an allotetraploid around 17-18 Ma...

BACKGROUND: Denture adhesives, characterized as medical products in 1935 by the American Dental Association, have been considered useful adjuncts for improving denture retention and stability. However, many dentists in Japan are hesitant to acknowledge denture adhesives in daily practice because of the stereotype that dentures should be inherently stable, without the aid of adhesives. The aim of this study is to verify the efficacy of denture adhesives to establish guidelines for Japanese users...

PURPOSE: To understand the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer cell radioresistance, clinically relevant radioresistant (CRR) cells that continue to proliferate during exposure to 2 Gy/day X-rays for more than 30 days were established. A modified high-density survival assay for anticancer drug screening revealed that CRR cells were resistant to an antimicrotubule agent, docetaxel (DTX). The involvement of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from mitochondria (mtROS) in the cross-resistance to X-rays and DTX was studied...

BACKGROUND: Hydrallantois is the excessive accumulation of fluid within the allantoic cavity in pregnant animals and is associated with fetal mortality. Although the incidence of hydrallantois is very low in artificial insemination breeding programs in cattle, recently 38 cows with the phenotypic appearance of hydrallantois were reported in a local subpopulation of Japanese Black cattle. Of these, 33 were traced back to the same sire; however, both their parents were reported healthy, suggesting that hydrallantois is a recessive inherited disorder...

OBJECTIVE: We evaluated whether the early responsiveness of ultrasound synovitis can predict the clinical response in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients treated with biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs). METHODS: Articular synovitis was assessed by ultrasound at 22 bilateral wrist and finger joints in 39 RA patients treated with bDMARDs. Each joint was assigned a gray-scale (GS) and power Doppler (PD) score from 0 to 3, and the sum of the GS or PD scores was considered to represent the ultrasound disease activity...

Two siamois-related homeobox genes siamois (sia1) and twin (sia2), have been reported in Xenopus laevis. These genes are expressed in the blastula chordin- and noggin-expressing (BCNE) center and the Nieuwkoop center, and have complete secondary axis-inducing activity when over-expressed on the ventral side of the embryo. Using whole genome sequences of X. tropicalis and X. laevis, we identified two additional siamois-related genes, which are tandemly duplicated near sia1 and sia2 to form the siamois gene cluster...

BACKGROUND: Lymphomatosis cerebri (LC) is a rare subtype of primary central nervous system malignant lymphoma. The typical features of this disease exhibited on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) without contrast enhancement are similar to those observed with diffuse leukoencephalopathy, mimicking white matter disorders such as encephalitis. Clinical features and examination findings that are suggestive of inflammatory diseases may indeed confound the diagnosis of LC.
