PurposePlasma globotriaosylsphingosine (lyso-Gb3) is a promising secondary screening biomarker for Fabry disease. Here, we examined its applicability as a primary screening biomarker for classic and late-onset Fabry disease in males and females.MethodsBetween 1 July 2014 and 31 December 2015, we screened 2,360 patients (1,324 males) referred from 169 Japanese specialty clinics (cardiology, nephrology, neurology, and pediatrics), based on clinical symptoms suggestive of Fabry disease. We used the plasma lyso-Gb3 concentration, α-galactosidase A (α-Gal A) activity, and analysis of the α-Gal A gene (GLA) for primary and secondary screens, respectively...

1,1'-Binaphthyl-substituted diphosphene 1 possessing a P[double bond, length as m-dash]P double bond and an axially chiral 1,1'-binaphthyl group was synthesized and fully characterized. Diphosphene 1 was prepared as an optically active form and thus is the first example of a chiral diphosphene. The CD spectra of 1 showed apparent circular dichroism in the longer wavelength region, caused by the P[double bond, length as m-dash]P moiety.

BACKGROUND: Breast reconstruction with a Becker-type expander is a common technique following mastectomy. However, inconsistency remains in the literature regarding risk factors for the survival of a Becker-type expander following immediate breast reconstruction. This study's purpose is to investigate possible risk factors for the Becker-type expander survival and to evaluate the complications related to expander removal following immediate breast reconstruction. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of consecutive women who underwent a mastectomy followed by immediate breast reconstruction with a Becker-type expander from November 2010 to November 2016...

The complexation of 238U and 234U in tap water and seawater after the use of a selective membrane was examined. At a first step many ligands were used for original membranes preparation and their yield in uranium analysis were evaluated by X-Ray Fluorescence, in order to select the ligand with the highest uranium selectivity in water samples. At the second step the new prepared membrane was used for uranium analysis by alpha spectrometry. Various factors were tested for a more effective uranium binding such as membrane's active surface, water sample volume, equilibration time and stirring during the process...

Using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to high-resolution electrospray ionization quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (HPLC/ESI-Q-TOF-MS), we have developed a new method for detection and identification of furan fatty acids (F-acids), which are widely distributed in living organisms and foods as minor lipid components and are known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. For this purpose, total fatty acids prepared from the testis lipids of Japanese chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) were examined without any concentration or isolation of F-acids...

BACKGROUND: Mullerian anomalies have a known association with renal agenesis yet, to date, there are no formal recommendations for screening women with certain renal anomalies for associated genital tract disorders. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to review current data regarding the association between renal and Mullerian anomalies, and propose screening recommendations. STUDY DESIGN: A comprehensive review of the literature was performed to identify relevant articles using the keywords "unilateral renal agenesis," "renal anomalies," and "Mullerian anomalies...

Hydrogen bonding properties of H2SO4/HNO3/H2O ternary molecular clusters have been studied by means of structural, energetic, topological, and spectroscopic perspectives. The roles of the hydrogen bonds in the formation of these clusters are considered according to the molecule positions (proton donor or proton acceptor) in the clusters. 33 stable conformers were identified on the potential energy surface. The global minimum one was obtained when HNO3 donates a proton to H2SO4, however, the cooperativity effect contribution was found to be significant for the cluster where HNO3 acts as a proton donor to an H2O molecule...

Mutations in either cubilin (CUBN) or amnionless (AMN) genes cause Imerslund-Gräsbeck syndrome (IGS), a hereditary disease characterised by anaemia attributed to selective intestinal malabsorption of cobalamin and low-molecular weight proteinuria. Although cubilin protein does not have a transmembrane segment, it functions as a multi-ligand receptor by binding to the transmembrane protein, amnionless. We established a system to quantitatively analyse membrane targeting of the protein complex in cultured renal and intestinal cells and analysed the pathogenic mechanisms of mutations found in IGS patients...

Cavity-resonator-integrated guided-mode resonance filters (CRIGF) consisting of a grating coupler in a waveguide resonator formed by two distributed Bragg reflectors of different reflectances can act as a wavelength-selective reflector and an input waveguide coupler for an incident free-space wave. Integration of CRIGFs in a waveguide is proposed to give an array of external mirrors and a wavelength division multiplexer for constructing a compact multi-wavelength light source. Four CRIGFs of 10-μm-size aperture with a wavelength spacing of 15 nm were designed and fabricated...

We report a case of a 79-year-old man who developed severe therapy-related pancytopenia from tegafur uracil(UFT)and Leucovorin(LV)as adjuvant chemotherapy for ascending colon cancer. Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy resection was performed for the ascending colon cancer. Pathohistological analysis revealed that the ascending colon tumor was moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma(T3, N1, M0, and Stage III a). Postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy with UFT and LV was administered. After 2 courses of chemotherapies, severe thrombocytopenia(Grade 4)and neutropenia(Grade 4)were noted...

Solitary functioning kidney (SFK) occurs with unilateral renal agenesis (URA) in 1/2000 live births - or after uninephrectomy for tumor, trauma, uncontrolled infections or hypertension and post-kidney donation. URA-associated states include urological, cardiac, gastrointestinal and skeletal anomalies or it might be a component of a genetic syndrome. In 10% of cases of URA another family member is affected. In any case of SFK a compensatory process is triggered consisting of glomerular hypertension with hyperfiltration which achieves 75% of two kidneys' function...

Cellulose, a main component of cell walls, generally makes materials hard and brittle. However, an ultratough, cellulosic material is found in nature: cherry bark. Surprisingly, it elongates by more than twice of its initial length and behaves as a plastic film during stretching. This amazing mechanical property is achieved by a well-designed cell wall structure; cellulose fibers are folded like helical springs, covered by multiple flexible layers of lipid polymers.

Endometrial cancer arises from the endometrium. It has a slow progression and a reported survival rate of 75%. The identification of soluble biomarkers in the uterine aspirate may be very useful for its early diagnosis. Uterine aspirates from 10 patients with endometrial cancer and 6 non-endometrial cancer controls were analyzed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with mass spectrometry and western blotting for data verification. A total of 25 proteins with fold change in %V ≥2 or ≤0.5 in intensity were observed to change significantly (P<0...

We report a precise measurement of the J/ψ elliptic flow in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The J/ψ mesons are reconstructed at midrapidity (|y|<0.9) in the dielectron decay channel and at forward rapidity (2.5<y<4.0) in the dimuon channel, both down to zero transverse momentum. At forward rapidity, the elliptic flow v_{2} of the J/ψ is studied as a function of the transverse momentum and centrality. A positive v_{2} is observed in the transverse momentum range 2<p_{T}<8  GeV/c in the three centrality classes studied and confirms with higher statistics our earlier results at sqrt[s_{NN}]=2...

Like two dancers, the circadian clock and cell cycle are biological oscillators engaged in bidirectional communication, resulting in circadian clock-gated cell division cycles in species ranging from cyanobacteria to mammals. The identified mechanisms for this phenomenon have expanded beyond intracellular molecular coupling components to include intercellular connections. However, detailed molecular mechanisms, dynamics, and physiological functions of the circadian clock and cell cycle as coupled oscillators remain largely unknown...
