Anomalies in coronary arteries (CA) are an important issue in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. Specifically the anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) is of special importance because it is the most frequent anomaly. Clinical practice guidelines recommend the revascularization treatment in cases of interarterial pathway and documented myocardial ischemia and when hypoplasia, compression or obstruction is evident. We report two different cases of patients with anomalous origin of RCA and associated interarterial pathway...

INTRODUCTION: Anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare but severe congenital cardiac malformation. The prognosis mainly depends on the early and accurate diagnosis and treatment. However, without a typical and specific clinical manifestation in early stage, ALCAPA has a higher rate of false initial diagnosis. DIAGNOSTIC AND THERAPEUTIC PROCEDURE: Three infants with impaired left ventricle (LV) function, LV enlargement, mitral valve regurgitation (MR), and LV endocardium thickness were initially diagnosed as endocardial fibroelastosis (EFE)...

Infections caused by highly variable influenza A viruses (IAVs) pose perpetual threat to humans as well as to animals. Their surveillance requires reliable methods for their qualitative and quantitative analysis. The most frequently utilized quantification method is the titration by plaque assay or 50% tissue culture infectious dose estimation by TCID50. However, both methods are time-consuming. Moreover, some IAV strains form hardly visible plaques, and the evaluation of TCID50 is subjective. Employment of immuno-staining into the classic protocols for plaque assay or TCID50 assay enables to avoid these problems and moreover, shorten the time needed for reliable infectious virus quantification...

Positively-charged nylon membrane (NM) is a general solid-phase support for nucleic acid detection due to its convenient immobilization of nucleic acid materials by direct electrostatic adherence and simple UV crosslinking. Rolling circle amplification (RCA) is a widely used isothermal DNA amplification technique for nucleic acid detection. Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) is a new fluorescence technique with high sensitivity due to low background. This study developed a simple method for detecting nucleic acid molecules by combining the advantages of NM, RCA and NIRF, named NIRF-based solid phase RCA on nylon membrane (NM-NIRF-sRCA)...

This article proposes a rigorous mathematical approach, named a reliability-based capability approach (RCA), to quantify the societal impact of a hazard. The starting point of the RCA is a capability approach in which capabilities refer to the genuine opportunities open to individuals to achieve valuable doings and beings (such as being mobile and being sheltered) called functionings. Capabilities depend on what individuals have and what they can do with what they have. The article develops probabilistic predictive models that relate the value of each functioning to a set of easily predictable or measurable quantities (regressors) in the aftermath of a hazard...

In this study, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors were combined with template enhanced hybridization processes (TEHP), rolling circle amplification (RCA) and biocatalytic precipitation (BCP) for ultrasensitive detection of DNA and protein. The DNA complementary to the aptamer was released by the specific binding of the aptamer to the target protein and then hybridized with the capture probe and the assistant DNA to form a ternary "Y" junction structure. The initiation chain was generated by the template-enhanced hybridization process which leaded to the rolling circle amplification reaction, and a large number of repeating unit sequences were formed...

Worldwide primary angioplasty is a recommended strategy of reperfusion in patient with acute myocardial infarction as because it ensures reperfusion of the infarct-related vessels more than 90% whereas, with thrombolytics it is only 60-70%. This retrospective observational study includes all patients treated with primary angioplasty at United Hospital from Between March 2007 to January 2011. Total 114 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction were treated with primary angioplasty included. Those presented beyond 12 hours of onset of chest pain, in cardiogenic shock, resuscitate and intubated before the procedure were excluded from the study...

REVIEW
Oliver Mueller-Cajar
Gaseous carbon dioxide enters the biosphere almost exclusively via the active site of the enzyme ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco). This highly conserved catalyst has an almost universal propensity to non-productively interact with its substrate ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate, leading to the formation of dead-end inhibited complexes. In diverse autotrophic organisms this tendency has been counteracted by the recruitment of dedicated AAA+ (ATPases associated with various cellular activities) proteins that all use the energy of ATP hydrolysis to remodel inhibited Rubisco active sites leading to release of the inhibitor...

Global warming is a major threat for agriculture and food security, and in many cases the negative impacts are already apparent. Wheat is one of the most important staple food crops and is highly sensitive to the heat stress (HS) during reproductive and grain-filling stages. Here, whole transcriptome analysis of thermotolerant wheat cv. HD2985 was carried out at the post-anthesis stage under control (22 ± 3 °C) and HS-treated (42 °C, 2 h) conditions using Illumina Hiseq and Roche GS-FLX 454 platforms...
