BACKGROUND: Bleeding from the small bowel is a rare pathology that represents 5-10% of gastrointestinal bleeding; 0.06% to 5% of cases are due to the presence of diverticula of the small intestine. The majority of diverticula are asymptomatic and present symptoms when there is a complication. CLINICAL CASE: We present the case of a 53-year-old male with a history of chronic renal failure and hypertension. While he was hospitalized due to cerebrovascular disease he recurrently presented lower gastrointestinal bleeding that required blood transfusion on several occasions...

PURPOSE: Functional lung avoidance radiotherapy promises optimized therapy planning by minimizing dose to well-functioning lung and maximizing dose to the rest of the lung. Patients with NSCLC commonly present with co-morbid COPD and heterogeneously distributed ventilation abnormalities stemming from emphysema, airways disease, and tumour burden. We hypothesized that pulmonary functional imaging methods may be used to optimize radiotherapy plans to avoid regions of well-functioning lung and significantly improve outcomes like quality-of-life and survival...

Plants tolerate water deficits by regulating gene networks controlling cellular and physiological traits to modify growth and development. Transcription factor (TF)-directed regulation of transcription within these gene networks is key to eliciting appropriate responses. In this study, reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) was used to examine the abundance of 618 transcripts from 536 TF genes in individual root and shoot tissues of maize seedlings grown in vermiculite under well-watered (water potential of -0...

INTRODUCTION: Mouthpiece ventilation represents a valuable treatment for patients needing daytime non-invasive ventilation. This modality is however underused, in part because of limitations in the available equipment. OBJECTIVE: To develop a new flexible and moldable mouthpiece, aiming to address some of the issues of the currently available interfaces. METHODS: We compared two commercially available and the newly developed mouthpieces in a bench test using four life-support home ventilators and three settings per ventilator...

One hundred and three yeasts isolated from soil samples from King George Island and Tierra del Fuego province were screened in relation with their capability to produce pectinolytic enzymes. Although all the yeasts showed well-developed colonies at 20 °C, only eight showed a clear halo around the colony, indicative of pectin degradation. A secondary screening demonstrated that only four yeasts were capable to produce pectinases at low temperatures (8 °C). It could be seen that the selected yeasts were able to grow and produce high levels of polygalacturonase activity when submerged fermentations were performed using pectin-containing fruit wastes as substrates...

MOTIVATION: High throughput screening by fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) is a common task in protein engineering and directed evolution. It can also be a rate-limiting step if high false positive or negative rates necessitate multiple rounds of enrichment. Current FACS software requires the user to define sorting gates by intuition and are practically limited to two dimensions. In cases when multiple rounds of enrichment are required, the software cannot forecast the enrichment effort required...

Sirtuins are protein deacylases regulating metabolism and stress responses, and are implicated in aging-related diseases. Small molecule activators for the human sirtuins Sirt1-7 are sought as chemical tools and potential therapeutics, such as for cancer. Activators are available for Sirt1 and exploit its unique N-terminus, whereas drug-like activators for Sirt2-7 are lacking. We synthesized and screened pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxaline derivatives, yielding the first synthetic Sirt6 activators. Biochemical assays show direct, substrate-independent compound binding to the Sirt6 catalytic core and potent activation of Sirt6-dependent deacetylation of peptide substrates and complete nucleosomes...

The failure to transmit neural action potentials (APs) into muscle APs is referred to as neuromuscular transmission failure (NTF). Although synaptic dysfunction occurs in a variety of neuromuscular diseases and impaired neurotransmission contributes to muscle fatigue, direct evaluation of neurotransmission by measurement of successfully transduced muscle APs is difficult due to the subsequent movements produced by muscle. Moreover, the voltage-gated sodium channel inhibitor used to study neurotransmitter release at the adult neuromuscular junction is ineffective in embryonic tissue, making it nearly impossible to precisely measure any aspect of neurotransmission in embryonic lethal mouse mutants...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Prior studies have suggested no significant differences in functional status and postoperative complications of elderly versus non-elderly patients undergoing posterior lumbar interbody fusion; however, similar studies have not been comprehensively investigated in the setting of anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF). PURPOSE: The objective was to quantify the ability of the modified Frailty Index (mFI) to predict postoperative events in patients undergoing ALIF...

The development of amyloid β (Aβ) vaccines for Alzheimer's disease (AD) has consistently failed, an outcome that is assumed to result from the lack of a full understanding of the role of Aβ in this disease. This opinion resulted in this research approach being disregarded, yet, review of the development of these vaccines indicates that they are more suited to transgenic mice, which is unsurprising given that these animal models were used to determine the efficacy of these vaccines, and that the approach overlooked research findings relevant to AD vaccines...

The implications of lysine-specific demethylase-1 (LSD1) in tumorigenesis have urged scientists to develop diagnostic tools in order to explore the function of this enzyme. In this work, we present our efforts on the development of tranylcypromine (TCP)-based functionalized probes for activity-based protein profiling (ABPP) of LSD1 activity. Biotinylated forms of selected compounds enabled dose-dependent enzyme labeling of recombinant LSD1. However, treatment with LSD1 inhibitors did not clearly reduce the LSD1 labeling efficiency thus indicating that labeling using these probes is not activity dependent...

Whether the auditory and visual systems use a similar coding strategy to represent motion direction is an open question. We investigated this question in the barn owl's optic tectum (OT) testing stimulus specific adaptation (SSA) to the direction of motion. SSA, the reduction of the response to a repetitive stimulus that does not generalize to other stimuli, has been well established in OT neurons. SSA suggests a separate representation of the adapted stimulus in upstream pathways. So far, only SSA to static stimuli has been studied in the OT...

We report the first Italian family affected by hereditary gelsolin amyloidosis (HGA), a rare autosomal dominant disease characterized by adult-onset slowly progressive cranial neuropathy, lattice corneal dystrophy, and cutis laxa. The index case was a 39-year-old male with a 9-year history of progressive bilateral facial nerve palsy. His mother had two episodes of acute facial palsy, and his maternal aunt and grandfather were also affected. Electrophysiological studies confirmed bilateral facial nerve involvement, without signs of peripheral polyneuropathy, and ophthalmological examination showed bilateral lattice corneal dystrophy, in both the index case and his mother...

Biochemical diversity of venom extracts often occurs within a small number of shared protein families. Developing a sequestrant capable of broad-spectrum neutralization across various protein isoforms within these protein families is a necessary step in creating broad-spectrum antivenom. Using directed synthetic evolution to optimize a nanoparticle (NP) formulation capable of sequestering and neutralizing venomous phospholipase A2 (PLA2), we demonstrate that broad-spectrum neutralization and sequestration of venomous biomacromolecules is possible via a single optimized NP formulation...

Fatty liver, which frequently coexists with necro-inflammatory and fibrotic changes, may occur in the setting of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and chronic infections due to either hepatitis C virus (HCV) or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). These three pathologic conditions are associated with an increased prevalence and incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). In this multidisciplinary clinical review, we aim to discuss the ever-expanding wealth of clinical and epidemiological evidence supporting a key role of fatty liver in the development of T2D and CVD in patients with NAFLD and in those with HCV or HIV infections...

Photoinitiator-free fabrication of poly(ethylene glycol) diacrylate (PEGDA) scaffolds is achieved using a novel three-dimensional (3D) printing method called mask projected excimer laser stereolithography (MPExSL). The spatial resolution of photoinitiator-free curing is suitable for 3D layer-by-layer fabrication with a single layer thickness well controllable at tens to hundreds of microns using 248 nm wavelength for the irradiation. The photoinitiator-free scaffolds are superior compared to their counterparts fabricated by using photoinitiator molecules, showing a higher level of biocompatibility...
