Ruikang Liu, Bernard Moss
Type I interferons (IFNs) induce expression of more than 300 cellular genes that provide protection against viruses and other pathogens. For survival, viruses evolved defenses to prevent the IFN response or counteract the IFN-induced antiviral state. However, because viruses and cells co-evolved, the dynamic relationship between virus and host is difficult to discern. In the present study, we demonstrated that vaccinia virus with a large deletion near the left end of the genome had a diminished ability to replicate in cells that had been pre-treated with IFNβ, suggesting that one or more of the missing 17 open reading frames (ORFs) encodes an antagonist of the IFN-induced antiviral state...

Introduction: We reviewed the safety and effectiveness of our hospital's urologic telemedicine (TM) program that has been utilized for the Iowa prisoner population for over a decade. Methods: A retrospective review of TM visits of male prisoners from 2007 to 2014 was performed. Effectiveness of TM visits was assessed by 1) concordance of TM and in-person diagnoses, 2) compliance with radiologic and medication orders and 3) in-person visits saved with TM. Safety was assessed by analyzing the number of patients in which an ED visit was required after TM visit and missed or delayed cases of malignancy...

REVIEW

Despite some major progress made in developing tuberculosis (TB) vaccine strategies, with a dozen novel vaccines currently in the clinical pipeline, the world is still missing an effective TB vaccine. This questions whether any major breakthroughs can be achieved without making a drastic departure from the current strategy, which creates a state of 'near-natural immunity', imitating the natural immunity developed after Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection. Here, we argue instead that mounting evidence suggests an effective strategy ought to induce a state of all-around 'un-natural' immunity comprising trained innate immunity (TII), tissue-resident memory T cells (TRM), and anti-Mtb surface antibodies in the lung...

In medical sciences, a disease condition is typically associated with multiple risk and protective factors. Although many studies report results of multiple factors, nearly all meta-analyses separately synthesize the association between each factor and the disease condition of interest. The collected studies usually report different subsets of factors, and the results from separate analyses on multiple factors may not be comparable because each analysis may use different subpopulation. This may impact on selecting most important factors to design a multi-factor intervention program...

Polymerases (Pols) synthesize the double-stranded nucleic acids in the Watson-Crick (W-C) conformation, which is critical for DNA and RNA functioning. Yet, the molecular basis to catalyze the W-C base pairing during Pol-mediated nucleic acids biosynthesis remains unclear. Here, through bioinformatics analyses on a large dataset of Pol/DNA structures, we first describe the conserved presence of one positively charged residue (Lys or Arg), which is similarly located near the enzymatic two-metal active site, always interacting directly with the incoming substrate (d)NTP...

G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are a key family of membrane proteins in all eukaryotes and also very important drug targets for medical intervention. The extensively studied visual pigment rhodopsin is a prime example of a family A GPCR. Its chromophore ligand retinal is covalently linked to a lysine in helix seven forming a protonated Schiff base. Interestingly, this is the same situation in other-non-GPCR-retinal proteins, like the prototype light-driven microbial proton pump bacteriorhodopsin, albeit there is no (or only a very remote) phylogenetical link...

Residents living near agricultural fields may be exposed to pesticides drifting from the fields after application to different field crops. To address this currently missing exposure pathway in life cycle assessment (LCA), we developed a modeling framework for quantifying exposure of bystanders to pesticide spray drift from agricultural fields. Our framework consists of three parts addressing: (1) loss of pesticides from an agricultural field via spray drift; (2) environmental fate of pesticide in air outside of the treated field; and (3) exposure of bystanders to pesticides via inhalation...
