Bianca Manago, Jenny L Davis, Carla Goar
For parents of children with disabilities, stigmatization is part of everyday life. To resist the negative social and emotional consequences of stigma, parents both challenge and deflect social devaluations. Challenges work to upend the stigmatizing structure, while deflections maintain the interaction order. We examine how parents of children with disabilities deploy deflections and challenges, and how their stigma resistance strategies combine with available models of disability discourse. Disability discourse falls into two broad categories: medical and social...

Contigs with sequence homologies to cherry-associated luteovirus were identified by high-throughput sequencing analysis in two peach accessions. Complete genomic sequences of the two isolates of this virus were determined to be 5,819 and 5,814 nucleotides long, respectively. The genome of the new virus is typical of luteoviruses, containing eight open reading frames in a very similar arrangement. Its genomic sequence is 58-74% identical to those of other members of the genus Luteovirus. These sequences thus belong to a new virus, which we have named "peach-associated luteovirus"...

Counterfeit drugs can hurt patients and harm the pharmaceutical industry. In 2006, the International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce expressed a need to generate more and better data to calculate a worldwide prevalence of counterfeiting. This review analyzes field test data that were published in the time-frame January 2007 to December 2016, were accessible via Pubmed, and which addressed the prevalence of counterfeit drugs. Based on the 41 studies identified, it is still not possible to make a reliable statement about the prevalence of counterfeit drugs due to the heterogeneity of the results...

BACKGROUND: Impaired capacity of patients necessitates the use of surrogates to make decisions on behalf of patients. Little is known about surrogate decision-making in the surgical intensive care unit, where the decline to critical illness is often unexpected. We sought to explore surrogate experiences with decision-making in the surgical intensive care unit. METHODS: This qualitative study was performed at 2 surgical intensive care units at a single, tertiary, academic hospital Surrogate decision-makers who had made a major medical decision for a patient in the surgical intensive care unit were identified and enrolled prospectively...

BACKGROUND: Teaching clinical audit skills to nascent health professionals is one strategy to improve frontline care. The undergraduate medical curriculum at the University of Auckland provides improvement science theory and skills in Year 5 teaching, and the opportunity to put this into practice during an Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) clinical attachment in Year 6. In 2015, a revised medical school curriculum at the university resulted in a planned reduction of the O&G attachment from five weeks to four, necessitating revision of the Year 6 Quality Improvement (QI) project...

BACKGROUND: Image segmentation and registration techniques have enabled biologists to place large amounts of volume data from fluorescence microscopy, morphed three-dimensionally, onto a common spatial frame. Existing tools built on volume visualization pipelines for single channel or red-green-blue (RGB) channels have become inadequate for the new challenges of fluorescence microscopy. For a three-dimensional atlas of the insect nervous system, hundreds of volume channels are rendered simultaneously, whereas fluorescence intensity values from each channel need to be preserved for versatile adjustment and analysis...

Wisteria floribunda agglutinin (WFA) is a useful probe for distinguishing glycan structural alterations in diseases such as intrahepatic bile duct carcinoma and hepatic fibrosis; however, the gene encoding WFA has not been identified. Here, we identified the gene encoding WFA, and recombinant WFA was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified. The natural cDNA sequence obtained from wisteria seeds contained an open reading frame of 861 nucleotides encoding a WFA precursor, which included a hydrophobic signal peptide at the N-terminus, a propeptide at the C-terminus and a single cysteine (Cys) residue for dimer formation...

OBJECTIVE: Patients undergoing multiple valve surgery represent a high-risk group who could potentially benefit from a reduction of cross-clamp and cardiopulmonary bypass times because prolonged bypass and cross-clamp times are considered independent risk factors for increased morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery. METHODS: Between July 2013 and November 2014, 16 patients underwent rapid deployment aortic valve replacement with the EDWARDS INTUITY valve system in the setting of concomitant mitral disease...

We report on the existence and stability of freely moving solitons in a spatially inhomogeneous Bose-Einstein condensate with helicoidal spin-orbit (SO) coupling. In spite of the periodically varying parameters, the system allows for the existence of stable propagating solitons. Such states are found in the rotating frame, where the helicoidal SO coupling is reduced to a homogeneous one. In the absence of the Zeeman splitting, the coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equations describing localized states feature many properties of the integrable systems...

Background: ETV6/RUNX1 gene fusion is the most frequently seen chromosomal abnormality in childhood acute lymphobastic leukamia (ALL). However, additional genetic changes are known to be required for the development of this type of leukaemia. Therefore, we here aimed to assess the somatic mutational profile of four ALL cases carrying the ETV6/RUNX1 fusion gene using whole-exome sequencing. Methods: DNA was isolated from bone marrow samples using a QIAmp DNA Blood Mini kit and subsequently sequenced using the Illumina MiSeq system...

Economic inequality is increasing both globally and in various countries around the world, and such inequality has been linked to worsening health, well-being, and social cohesion. A key predictor for whether people take action against inequality is the extent to which they perceive it as illegitimate. We investigate how two variables jointly predict the legitimization of inequality, namely the perceived magnitude of differences in economic outcomes and the way these differences are described. Two experiments (total N = 190) tested whether framing the same difference in outcomes as an advantaged group having more or as a disadvantaged group having less moderates whether higher inequality is perceived as less legitimate...

Two double stranded RNAs (dsRNA), likely representing the genome of a novel deltapartitivirus, provisionally named carnation cryptic virus 3 (CCV3), were recovered from Dianthus amurensis. The two dsRNAs were 1,573 (dsRNA1) and 1,561 (dsRNA2) bp in size, each containing a single open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 475- and 411-aa protein, respectively. The 475-aa protein contains a conserved RNA dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) domain which shows significant homology to RdRps of established or putative partitiviruses, particularly those belonging to the genus Deltapartitivirus...

Davaajargal Igori, Seungmo Lim, Dasom Baek, In Sook Cho, Jae Sun Moon
We determined the complete genome sequence of a highly divergent South Korean (SK) isolate of a cherry-associated luteovirus (ChALV) from peach. The ChALV-SK genome consists of 5,815 nucleotides, and contains five open reading frames (ORFs). A comparative analysis of the full genome showed only 73.1% nucleotide sequence identity with a recently described ChALV from the Czech Republic (CZ). Amino acid similarities of the individual ORFs between ChALV-SK and other luteoviruses range from 17.3 to 92%, which places the new isolate close to the species demarcation value for luteoviruses...

In this paper, a homotopy-based method is employed for the recovery of speech recordings from missing or corrupted samples taken in a noisy environment. The model for the acquisition device is a compressed sensing scenario using Gabor frames. To recover an approximation of the speech file, we used the basis pursuit denoising method with the homotopy continuation algorithm. We tested the proposed method with various speech recordings.

BACKGROUND: Disease-causing mutations that activate transposon-derived exons without creating a new splice-site consensus have been reported rarely, but they provided unique insights into our understanding of structural motifs required for inclusion of intronic sequences in mature transcripts. METHODS: We employ a combination of experimental and computational techniques to characterize the first de novo bipartite exon activation in genetic disease. RESULTS: The exon originated from two separate introns as a result of an in-frame COL4A5 deletion associated with a typical Alport syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Campomelic dysplasia (CD) is a semilethal developmental disorder caused by mutations in and around SOX9. CD is characterized by multiple skeletal malformations including bending (campomelia) of long bones. Surviving patients frequently have the acampomelic form of CD (ACD). METHODS: This is a single case report on a patient with clinical and radiological features of ACD who has no mutation in the SOX9 protein-coding sequence nor a translocation with breakpoint in the SOX9 regulatory domain...

BACKGROUND: Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is responsible for reproductive disorders in sows and respiratory problems in pigs, and has a major economic impact. Controlling PRRSV is therefore a priority for the swine industry. Stabilization of a herd, defined as the production of PRRSV-negative pigs at weaning from seropositive sows, is a common method of control, and different protocols have been described in the literature to achieve this stabilization. CONTEXT AND PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate wether the combination of mass vaccination of sows and their piglets with a Genotype I modified live virus (MLV) vaccine, with temporal closure to the introduction of replacement animals and unidirectional pig and human flow can result in the production of PRRSV-negative pigs at weaning...

Every year around 300 Gl of vinasse, a by-product of ethanol distillation in sugarcane mills, are flushed into more than 9 Mha of sugarcane cropland in Brazil. This practice links fermentation waste management to fertilization for plant biomass production, and it is known as fertirrigation. Here we evaluate public datasets of soil metagenomes mining for changes in antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) of soils from sugarcane mesocosms repeatedly amended with vinasse. The metagenomes were annotated using the ResFam database...

Abortions in general, and second trimester abortions in particular, are experiences which in many contexts have limited sociocultural visibility. Research on second trimester abortion worldwide has focused on a range of associated factors including risks and acceptability of abortion methods, and characteristics and decision-making of women seeking the procedure. Scholarship to date has not adequately addressed the embodied physicality of second trimester abortion, from the perspective of women's lived experiences, nor how these experiences might inform future framings of abortion...
