PURPOSE: To determine whether generalized hypermobility and contralateral knee hyperextension affect failure rates and patient-related outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). METHODS: A total of 226 consecutive patients presenting with acute ACL tears were prospectively evaluated for generalized hypermobility by a modified Beighton criteria. Minimum 2-year follow-up was achieved for 183 knees (81%). Patients underwent ACLR with either bone-patellar-tendon (BPTB) autograft (n = 46), quadrupled hamstring (HT) autograft (n = 85), or allograft tissue (n = 52)...

AIMS: Sedation, as it is often required in critical care, is associated with immobilization, prolonged ventilation, and increased morbidity. Most sedation protocols are based on benzodiazepines. The presented study analyzes the benefit of benzodiazepine-free sedation. METHODS: In 2008, 134 patients were treated according to a protocol using benzodiazepine and propofol (Group 1). In 2009, we introduced a new sedation strategy based on sufentanil, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, neuroleptics, and antidepressants, which was applied in 140 consecutive patients (Group 2)...

Seasonal changes in metabolic rate have been shown in horses and we hypothesized that this leads to the birth of smaller foals early in the year. Mares and their foals were assigned to three groups by day of foaling within the year (e.g. 1 January = day 1): Group 1 (n = 10) day 40-65, group 2 (n = 8) day 67-92, group 3 (n = 9) day 94-121. Groups did not differ with regard to parity. In foals, height at withers and body weight were determined on days 1-5 and weekly until 12 weeks of age. Chest circumference, distances fetlock to carpus, carpus to elbow, poll to nose and crown-rump length were determined on day 5 and weekly until 12 weeks of age...

There is increasing evidence pointing toward a continuous distribution of psychotic symptoms and accompanying factors between subclinical and clinical populations. However, for the construction of continuum models, a more detailed knowledge of different types of psychotic-like experiences (PLE) and their associations with distress, functional impairment, and demographic variables is needed. We investigated PLE in a sample of healthy adults (N = 206) incorporating the recently developed revised Exceptional Experiences Questionnaire (PAGE-R)...

To study the antimicrobial function of immune cells ex vivo, cells are commonly cultivated under atmospheric oxygen concentrations (20-21%; normoxia), although the physiological oxygen conditions in vivo are significantly lower in most tissues. Especially during an acute infection, oxygen concentration locally decreases to hypoxic levels around or below 1%. The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of hypoxia on the activity of mast cells (MCs). MCs were cultivated for 3 or 24 h at 1% O2 in a hypoxia glove box and co-incubated with heat-inactivated Staphylococcus aureus...

We present a self-assembled template of tetraphenylmethane-based variants on a Au(111) surface which feature a periodic lateral arrangement of acetyl groups sticking out of the molecular film. Using the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope, this acetyl group can be removed in a spatially controlled way without a significant effect on the remaining molecular assembly. The chemically modified molecule can readily be distinguished from the original ones such that information can be engraved in the molecular film...

Purpose: MicroRNA-196b-5p (miR-196b-5p) has been previously implicated in malignant transformation, however, its role in colorectal cancer (CRC) has not been fully explored. In the current study, we examine the clinical and biological relevance of miR-196b-5p, and the molecular pathways regulated by miR-196b-5p in CRC. <p>Experimental design: MiR-196b-5p expression was quantitated by qRT-PCR in two independent cohorts comprised of 292 CRC patients in total, to explore its biomarker potential. Transient and stable gain and loss of function experiments were conducted in a panel of CRC cell lines and mice, to evaluate the impact of miR-196b-5p on proliferation, chemo-sensitivity, migration/invasion and metastases formation in vitro and in vivo The molecular pathways influenced by miR-196b-5p were characterized using whole transcriptome profiling, in-silico target prediction tools, luciferase-interaction assays, and pheno-copy/rescue gene knock-down experiments...

Denisovite is a rare mineral occurring as aggregates of fibres typically 200-500 nm diameter. It was confirmed as a new mineral in 1984, but important facts about its chemical formula, lattice parameters, symmetry and structure have remained incompletely known since then. Recently obtained results from studies using microprobe analysis, X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), electron crystallography, modelling and Rietveld refinement will be reported. The electron crystallography methods include transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected-area electron diffraction (SAED), high-angle annular dark-field imaging (HAADF), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), precession electron diffraction (PED) and electron diffraction tomography (EDT)...

Isovaleryl coenzyme A (IV-CoA) is an important precursor for iso-fatty acids and lipids. It acts in the development of myxobacteria, which can produce this compound from acetyl-CoA through alternative IV-CoA biosynthesis (aib). A central reaction of aib is catalyzed by AibA/AibB, which acts as a cofactor-free decarboxylase despite belonging to the family of CoA-transferases. We developed an efficient expression system for AibA/AibB that allowed the determination of high-resolution crystal structures in complex with different ligands...

During the last decade, novel immunotherapeutic strategies, in particular antibodies directed against immune checkpoint inhibitors, have revolutionized the treatment of different malignancies leading to an improved survival of patients. Identification of immune-related biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring of immune responses and selection of patients for specific cancer immunotherapies is urgently required and therefore areas of intensive research. Easily accessible samples in particular liquid biopsies (body fluids), such as blood, saliva or urine, are preferred for serial tumor biopsies...

Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) induces skin cancer. The combination of UVR and red tattoos may be associated with increased risk of skin cancer due to potential carcinogens in tattoo inks. This combination has not been studied previously. Immunocompetent C3.Cg/TifBomTac hairless mice (n=99) were tattooed on their back with a popular red tattoo ink. This often used ink is banned for use on humans because of high content of the potential carcinogen 2-anisidine. Half of the mice were irradiated with three standard erythema doses UVR thrice weekly...

Increased extracellular proton concentrations during neurotransmission are converted to excitatory sodium influx by acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs). 10-fold sodium/potassium selectivity in ASICs has long been attributed to a central constriction in the channel pore, but experimental verification is lacking due to the sensitivity of this structure to conventional manipulations. Here, we explored the basis for ion selectivity by incorporating unnatural amino acids into the channel, engineering channel stoichiometry and performing free energy simulations...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Impaired protein homeostasis induced by endoplasmic reticulum dysfunction is a key feature of a variety of age-related brain diseases including stroke. To restore endoplasmic reticulum function impaired by stress, the unfolded protein response is activated. A key unfolded protein response prosurvival pathway is controlled by the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor (inositol-requiring enzyme-1), XBP1 (downstream X-box-binding protein-1), and O-GlcNAc (O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine) modification of proteins (O-GlcNAcylation)...

The 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25(OH)D) production caused by UVB exposure is usually underestimated as the concurrent degradation of 25(OH)D is not considered. Therefore, the decrease in 25(OH)D was investigated during a 7-week period in winter when ambient UVB is negligible. Twenty-two healthy Danish individuals (113 samples) participated and had a mean and steady maximal 25(OH)D start level of 132 nmol l(-1) (range of 68-216 nmol l(-1)) due to long-term UVB treatment prior to this study. In this group with high 25(OH)D start levels, the decrease in 25(OH)D was best described by an exponential model...
