Since the pioneering work by Reutter and co-workers that demonstrated structural flexibility in the carbohydrate biosynthesis and glycosylation pathways, many different labs have used unnatural monosaccharide analogs to perform glycan engineering on the surface of living cells. A subset of these unnatural monosaccharides contain bioorthogonal groups that enable the selective installation of visualization or enrichment tags. These metabolic chemical reporters (MCRs) have proven to be powerful for the unbiased identification of glycoproteins; however they do have certain limitations...

BACKGROUND: In December 2013 the Multiple Consultant Report (MCR) was introduced as an assessment tool for junior doctors (i.e. doctors below specialist status) in the UK, including those undertaking core medical training (CMT). It aims to capture the views of consultant supervisors about a doctor's clinical performance. OBJECTIVE: Despite the mandatory nature of the MCR there is no published academic evaluation of this tool as an assessment of, or for, learning...

Comprehensive two-dimensional liquid chromatography (LC × LC) has been gaining popularity for the analysis of complex samples in a wide range of fields including metabolomics, environmental analysis, and food analysis. While LC × LC can provide greater chromatographic resolution than one-dimensional LC (1D-LC), overlapping peaks are often still present in separations of complex samples, a problem that can be alleviated by chemometric curve resolution techniques such as multivariate curve resolution-alternating least squares (MCR-ALS)...

The emergence of the transferable colistin resistance gene mcr-1 is of global concern. The insertion sequence (IS) Apl1 is a key component in the mobilization of this gene, but its role remains poorly understood.Six Escherichia coli were cultured from the same patient over one month in Germany and the USA after a brief hospitalization in Bahrain for an unconnected illness. Four carried mcr-1 by real-time PCR, but two were negative. Two additional mcr-1-negative E. coli were collected during follow-up surveillance nine months later...

We investigated the consequences of colistin use in backyard chicken farms in Vietnam by examining the prevalence of mcr-1 in fecal samples from chickens and humans. Detection of mcr-1-carrying bacteria in chicken samples was associated with colistin use and detection in human samples with exposure to mcr-1-positive chickens.

Coincidentally, the release of this Research Topic in Frontiers in Endocrinology takes place 25 years after the discovery of the adrenocorticotropic hormone receptor (ACTHR) by Mountjoy and colleagues. In subsequent years, following the discovery of other types of mammalian melanocortin receptors (MCRs), ACTHR also became known as melanocortin type 2 receptor (MC2R). At present, five types of MCRs have been reported, all of which share significant sequence similarity at the amino acid level, and all of which specifically bind melanocortins (MCs)-a group of biologically active peptides generated by proteolysis of the proopiomelanocortin precursor...

Rapid detoxification of atrazine in naturally tolerant crops such as maize (Zea mays) and grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) results from glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity. In previous research, two atrazine-resistant waterhemp (Amaranthus tuberculatus) populations from Illinois, U.S.A. (designated ACR and MCR) displayed rapid formation of atrazine-glutathione (GSH) conjugates, implicating elevated rates of metabolism as the resistance mechanism. Our main objective was to utilize protein purification combined with qualitative proteomics to investigate the hypothesis that enhanced atrazine detoxification, catalyzed by distinct GSTs, confers resistance in ACR and MCR...

A triple-sensitive polymer of poly(ethylene glycol)-iminoboronate nitrobenzyl ethanediol chelate (PEG-INEC) is efficiently fabricated via the convenient aqueous iminoboronate multi-component reaction (MCR) of methoxypolyethylene glycol amine (mPEG-NH2 ), 2-formylphenylboronic acid (FPBA), and bis(2-nitrophenyl) ethanediol (BNPE, a photo-cleavable nitrobenzyl alcohol derivate). The aqueous MCR synthetic procedure is followed using (1) H NMR and turbidity analysis. It is shown that polymer nano-aggregates of PEG-INEC in aqueous solution can be dissociated through the stimuli responsive reactions of the hydrophobic iminoboronate nitrobenzyl ethanediol chelates (INECs) when exposed to UV light, acid, and H2 O2 , respectively...

In the last years different surveillances have been published in Africa, especially in Northern countries, regarding antimicrobial resistance among husbandry animals. Information is still scarce, but the available data shows a worrying picture. Although the highest resistance rates have been described against tetracycline, penicillins and sulphonamides, prevalence of plasmid mediated quinolone resistance genes and extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) are being increasingly reported. Among ESBLs, the CTX-M-1 group was dominant in most African surveys, being CTX-M-15 the main variant both in animals and humans, except in Tunisia where CTX-M-1 was more frequently detected among E...

The detection and rapid spread of colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae carrying the mcr-1 gene has created an urgent need to strengthen surveillance. In this study, eight clonally unrelated colistin-resistant Escherichia coli isolates carrying mcr-1, and blaCTX-M or blaCMY-2 genes, were isolated from commercial chicken meat in Brazil. Most E. coli carried IncX4 plasmids, previously identified in human and animal isolates. These results highlight a new reservoir of mcr-1-harboring E. coli in South America.

The recently discovered colistin resistance-encoding element, mcr-1, adds to the list of antimicrobial resistance genes that rapidly erodes the antimicrobial efficacy of not only the commonly used antibiotics, but also the last line agents of carbapenems and colistin. This study investigated the prevalence of the mobile colistin resistance determinant mcr-1 in Salmonella strains recovered from clinical settings in China, and the transmission potential of mcr-1-bearing mobile elements harbored by such isolates...

We have recently demonstrated a methodology to estimate the percent crystallinity (PC) of polymers directly with Raman spectroscopy and multivariate curve resolution (MCR) by alternating least-squares (ALS). In the MCR-ALS methodology, the Raman spectrum of a semicrystalline polymer is separated into two constituent components (crystalline and molten/amorphous) and their corresponding concentrations. The methodology necessitates that the Raman spectrum at any temperature to be a linear combination of two MCR spectral components (one molten and one crystalline)...

For the first time, liquid chromatography-diode array detection (LC-DAD) and liquid-chromatography fluorescence detection (LC-FLD) second-order data, collected in a single chromatographic run, were fused and chemometrically processed for the quantitation of coeluting analytes. Two different experimental mixtures composed of fluorescent and nonfluorescent endocrine disruptors were analyzed. Adequate pretreatment of the matrices before their fusion was crucial to attain reliable results. Multivariate curve resolution-alternating least-squares (MCR-ALS) was applied to LC-DAD, LC-FLD, and fused LC-DAD-FLD data...

Multivariate curve resolution (MCR) is a powerful methodology for analyzing chemical data in different application fields such as pharmaceutical analysis, agriculture, food chemistry, environment, and industrial and clinical chemistry. However, MCR results are often complicated by rotational ambiguity, meaning that there is a range of feasible solutions that fulfill the constraints and explain equally well the observed experimental data. Constraints determine the properties of resolved profiles in MCR methods by enforcing different assumptions on data...

Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC-TOFMS) is a powerful tool for separation and identification of analytes in complex natural samples. In this paper, different chemometric methods were compared for fast non-targeted GC×GC-TOFMS metabolomic profiling of the crustaceous species Daphnia magna and a general chemometric strategy and workflow is proposed. The strategy proposed in this work combined the compression of GC×GC-TOFMS data matrices in the retention time direction using wavelets and the appropriate column-wise data matrix augmentation arrangement, and its modeling by Multivariate Curve Resolution-Alternating Least Squares (MCR-ALS)...

By 2030, the global population will be 8.5 billion, placing pressure on international poultry production, of which China is a key producer(1). From April 2017, China will implement the withdrawal of colistin as a growth promoter, removing over 8,000 tonnes per year from the Chinese farming sector(2). To understand the impact of banning colistin and the epidemiology of multi-drug-resistant (MDR) Escherichia coli (using blaNDM and mcr-1 as marker genes), we sampled poultry, dogs, sewage, wild birds and flies...

Polymyxins have recently been re-introduced into the therapeutic arsenal to combat infections caused by multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. However, the emergence of strains resistant to these last-resort drugs is becoming a critical issue in a growing number of countries. Both intrinsic and transferable mechanisms of polymyxin resistance have been characterised. These mechanisms as well as the epidemiological data regarding four relevant bacterial pathogens (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) are considered in this review...

The plasmid mediated mcr-1 gene encoding for Enterobacteriaceae colistin resistance has been recently identified across five continents. The objective of the present study was to trace historical events concerning the discovery and emergence of the mcr-1 gene along with ESBL and carbapenemase genes since several studies have reported identifying mcr-1 genes among Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamases (ESBL) and/or carbapenemase producing Escherichia coli. A retrospective study reported the identification of the mcr-1 gene in E...
