BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic organ-sparing pancreatectomy (LOSP) is an ideal therapeutic option in selected cases of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Nevertheless, given the low frequency of PNETs, there is scarce evidence regarding short and particularly long-term outcomes of LOSP in this clinical setting. METHODS: All patients with PNETs who underwent surgery (under a LOSP policy) were retrospectively reviewed from a prospective database maintained at our center...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is the causative agent of tuberculosis disease (TB), the leading cause of death from bacterial infection worldwide. Although treatable, the resurgence of multi- and extensively-drug resistance TB is a major setback for the fight against TB globally. Consequently, there is an urgent need for new Mtb derived biomarkers for use in the design of new drugs and rapid point-of-care diagnostic or prognostic tools for management of TB transmission. Therefore, the present study aimed to identify unique Mtb secreted proteins from the extensively drug resistant Mtb F15/LAM4/KZN phage secretome library...

Juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (jSLE) is rare before 5 years of age. Monogenic causes are suspected in cases of very early onset jSLE particularly in the context of a family history and/or consanguinity. We performed whole-exome sequencing and homozygosity mapping in the siblings presented with early-onset jSLE. A novel homozygous missense mutation in protein kinase C delta (c.1294G>T; p.Gly432Trp) was identified in both patients. One patient showed a marked clinical response and resolution inflammation with rituximab therapy...

The importance of actin dynamics in the activation of the inflammasome is becoming increasingly apparent. IL-1β, which is activated by the inflammasome, is known to be central to the pathogenesis of many monogenic autoinflammatory diseases. However, evidence from an autoinflammatory murine model indicates that IL-18, the other cytokine triggered by inflammasome activity, is important in its own right. In this model, autoinflammation was caused by mutation in the actin regulatory gene WDR1 We report a homozygous missense mutation in WDR1 in two siblings causing periodic fevers with immunodeficiency and thrombocytopenia...

Anion exchanger 1 (AE1) is a critical transporter and the primary structural scaffold for large macromolecular complexes responsible for erythrocyte membrane flexibility and integrity. We used zero-length crosslinking and mass spectrometry to probe AE1 structures and interactions in intact erythrocyte membranes. An experimentally verified full-length model of AE1 dimers was developed by combining crosslink-defined distance constraints with homology modeling. Previously unresolved cytoplasmic loops in the AE1 C-terminal domain are packed at the domain-domain interface on the cytoplasmic face of the membrane where they anchor the N-terminal domain's location and prevent it from occluding the ion channel...

A simple, rapid, in situ, and green extraction combined with a microcomplexation has been developed for the spectrophotometric determination of phosphate in water samples. Through their formation, layered double hydroxides (LDHs) were employed as the extraction medium, instantly commenced by a rapid addition of a mixed solution of Mg(2+) and Al(3+) ions into alkaline phosphate solution. After the extraction, LDH precipitate containing phosphate was dissolved by sulfuric acid and the released phosphate was subsequently detected via its complexation with molybdate in the presence of antimonyl and ascorbic acid...

The 3D structure determination of biological macromolecules by X-ray crystallography suffers from a phase problem: to perform Fourier transformation to calculate real space density maps, both intensities and phases of structure factors are necessary; however, measured diffraction patterns give only intensities. Although serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) using X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs) has been steadily developed since 2009, experimental phasing still remains challenging. Here, using 7.0-keV (1...

The concept of dynamic single-interface hollow fiber membrane liquid-phase microextraction (HF-LPME), where the target analyte was extracted on-line and eluted inside the lumen of the HF membrane, was explored. An ionic liquid containing supported liquid membrane was used for the trace determination of Cr(VI) as a model compound. Since the extraction took place on-line inside the hollow fiber membrane, the mass transfer behavior was described and discussed in comparison with the conventional HF-LPME. The extraction efficiency was improved by a recirculation configuration of the sample solution at relatively high sampling flow rates as a result of the increased effective contact area...

Sacrococcygeal chordoma is a malignant tumour originating from remnants of the notochord. Chordomas are slow-growing tumours whose symptoms develop insidiously. We present the case of a 72-year-old woman with a 6-month history of genital pain radiating to the perianal area and exacerbating when she was in a sitting position. MRI and PET studies revealed a large mass in the sacrococcygeal region causing bone destruction and invasion of neurovascular structures. The immunohistochemical study of the surgical specimen determined it to be chordoma...

Recombinase mediated cassette exchange (RMCE) is a powerful tool for targeted insertion of transgenes. Here we describe non-proprietary 'RMCE-in' cell lines as an alternative to the 'Flp-in' system and cell lines. RMCE-in cell lines offer a number of advantages including increased efficiency of integration of the genetic element of interest (GEI) at a single docking site, lack of bacterial backbone at the docking site both before and after GEI integration, removal of selection and visual markers initially present at the docking site upon GEI integration and the possibility to validate GEI integration by loss of a red fluorescence reporter...

The production of heat, i.e., thermogenesis, is a significant component of the metabolic rate, which in turn affects weight gain and health. Thermogenesis is linked to physical activity (PA) level. However, it is not known whether intrinsic exercise capacity, aging, and long-term voluntary running affect core body temperature. Here we use rat models selectively bred to differ in maximal treadmill endurance running capacity (Low capacity runners, LCR and High capacity Runners, HCR), that as adults are divergent for aerobic exercise capacity, aging, and metabolic disease risk to study the connection between PA and body temperature...

DNA replication and chromosome segregation must be carefully regulated to ensure reproductive success. During Bacillus subtilis sporulation, chromosome copy number is reduced to two, and cells divide asymmetrically to produce the future spore (forespore) compartment. For successful sporulation, oriC must be captured in the forespore. New rounds of DNA replication are prevented in part by SirA, a protein that utilizes residues in its N-terminus to directly target Domain I of the bacterial initiator, DnaA. Using a quantitative forespore chromosome organization assay, we show that SirA also acts in the same pathway as another DnaA regulator, Soj, to promote oriC capture in the forespore...
