A Gram-staining-negative, non-motile, aerobic bacterium, designated 1-3, was isolated from oil reservoir water collected from Liaohe oilfield, north-east of China. Growth was observed at 15-40 °C (optimum 37 °C) and pH 6-10 (optimum 7). The strain can grow under nitrogen-limiting condition. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the novel isolate was most closely related to Siccirubricoccus deserti SYSU D8009 (96.7%), followed by Paracraurococcus ruber NS89 (95.7%) and Belnapia rosea CPCC 100156 (94.9%). Genome sequencing revealed a genome size of 6.43 Mbp and a G+C content of 71.3 mol%. The average nucleotide identity values and digital DNA-DNA hybridization between 1-3 and the reference strains were all below the cut-off level (95-96% and 70%, respectively) for species delineation. The strain possessed the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which has the potential to degrade oil. The respiratory quinone was Q-10 and the major fatty acids were summed feature 8 (C ω7c/C ω6c, 38.8%), C (25.6%) and C cyclo ω8c (22.5%). The polar lipids of strain 1-3 comprised diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine and three unidentified aminolipids. Based on the genotypic and phenotypic characteristics, strain 1-3 represents a novel species of genus Siccirubricoccus, for which the name Siccirubricoccus phaeus sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Siccirubricoccus phaeus is 1-3 (= CGMCC 1.16799 = LMG 31398).

Roles of Physiological Responses and Anthropometric Factors on the Gravitational Force Tolerance for Occupational Hypergravity Exposure.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2020 11 2;17(21). Epub 2020 Nov 2.

Graduate Institute of Aerospace and Undersea Medicine, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei City 114, Taiwan.

Gravity in the head-to-toe direction, known as +Gz (G force), forces blood to pool in the lower body. Fighter pilots experience decreases in blood pressure when exposed to hypergravity in flight. Human centrifuge has been used to examine the G tolerance and anti-G straining maneuver (AGSM) techniques of military pilots. Some factors that may affect G tolerance have been reported but are still debated. The aim of this study was to investigate the physiological responses and anthropometric factors correlated with G tolerance. We retrospectively reviewed the training records of student pilots who underwent high G training. Variables were collected to examine their correlations with the outcome of 7.5G sustained for 15 s (7.5G profile). There were 873 trainees who underwent 7.5G profile training, 44 trainees (5.04%) could not sustain the test for 15 s. The group with a small heart rate (HR) increase (less than 10%) during the first 1-5 s of the 7.5G profile had a nearly ten-fold higher failing chance compared with the large HR increase group (adjusted odds ratio: 9.91; 95% confidence interval: 4.11-23.88). The chances of failure were inversely related to the HR increase percentage ( for trend <0.001). Factors, including body mass index, relaxed and straining G tolerance, and AGSM, were found to be negatively correlated with the outcome.

Morphological Characteristics Predict Postoperative Outcomes After Vitrectomy in Myopic Traction Maculopathy Patients.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2020 10;51(10):574-582

Background And Objectives: To provide the surgical indication for patients with myopic traction maculopathy (MTM) by investigating the postoperative outcomes after vitrectomy among different types of morphological characteristic groups.

Patients And Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study that included patients (37 eyes) diagnosed with MTM at a single institution. All 37 eyes from 37 patients with MTMs were classified into three groups: foveal retinoschisis (FS), lamellar macular hole (LMH), and foveal retinal detachment (FRD). The ratios of anatomic recovery, central retinal thickness (CRT), and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were statistically analyzed among the three groups preoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after vitrectomy.

Results: Anatomical recovery could be found in all patients of the FS group at 6 months postoperatively and in the LMH group at 12 months postoperatively. Only 83.33% patients in the FRD group showed anatomic recovery until 12 months. The time taken for CRT to reduce to 200 µm was gradually increased between the FS, LMH, and FRD groups. Postoperative BCVA was better in the FS group than the LMH and FRD groups (P < .05), but the LMH and FDR groups had no difference (P ≥ .05) at any point. The visual acuity was significantly improved in the FS group (P < .01) and FRD group (P = .018), but not in the LMH group (P = .196) at 12 months postoperatively.

Conclusions: The FS group achieved anatomical recovery in the shortest time and had the best postoperative BCVA. FRD patients could get visual gain but need too much time for the anatomical recovery. LMH patients experienced anatomic success with surgery, but not in BCVA. Early surgery might be considered for eyes at FS prior to the occurrence of LMH or FRD.

Comparison of hypobaric hypoxia symptoms between a recalled exposure and a current exposure.

PLoS One 2020 23;15(9):e0239194. Epub 2020 Sep 23.

Graduate Institute of Aerospace and Undersea Medicine, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei City, Taiwan.

Background: Aircrew members are required to attend hypoxia awareness training regularly to strengthen their memory of their personal hypoxia symptoms by undergoing training inside a hypobaric chamber. The aim of this study was to examine the association between hypoxia symptoms experienced during two training sessions that were 4 years apart.

Methods: This was a crossover study to compare hypoxia symptoms and self-reported physiological effects of trapped gas between a previous training session and a current training session in an altitude chamber. The subjects were military crew members who undertook a 25,000-feet refresher training course in 2018. We used a structured questionnaire to obtain the target information before and during hypoxia exposure. Data were analyzed using SPSS software.

Results: A total of 341 trainees participated in this survey and completely filled out the questionnaire. Gastrointestinal tract discomfort caused by the expansion of trapped gas was the main physiological reaction during the previous and current training sessions. Frequently reported symptoms were poor concentration (30.5%), impaired cognitive function (20.5%), visual disturbances (16.4%), hot flashes (15.8%), and paresthesia (12.6%) during both exposures. However, the proportions of participants reporting poor concentration (P = 0.378) and visual disturbances (P = 0.594) were not significantly different between the recalled and current training sessions. The five most common symptoms among the subjects with less than 1,000 flight hours were poor concentration (29.8%), visual disturbance (27.3%), impaired cognitive function (14.9%), dizziness/lightheadedness (11.6%), and hot flashes (9.9%), which overlapped substantially with the symptoms reported by other subjects. The occurrence of those five most common symptoms in the group with more than 1,000 flight hours did not significantly differ between the recalled training session and the current training session.

Conclusions: The most common hypoxia symptoms reported were similar between the recalled and current training sessions in an environment with a low oxygen concentration. This finding was also clearly affected by the duration of flight experience. Moreover, GI effects of the expansion of trapped gas were commonly observed at low atmospheric pressure.

A Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, designated XJ4, was isolated from oil-contaminated water, collected from Xinjiang Province, north-west PR China (45° 1' 27″ N, 85° 6' 14″ E). Growth occurred at 20-45 °C (optimum, 30 °C) and pH 6.0-10.0 (optimum, pH 6.0-7.0). Strain XJ4 could tolerate up to 7 % (w/v) NaCl and grow optimally in the absence of NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on comparative sequence analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain XJ4 belonged to the genus , and that was closely related to cai42 (97.2 %), SP32 (97.0 %) and JA296 (97.0 %). The average nucleotide identity values between XJ4 and three type strains were 77.9, 77.6 and 71.9 %, respectively. The DNA G+C content of strain XJ4 was 69.5 mol%. The sole respiratory quinone was Q-10. The major cellular fatty acid was summed feature 8 (Cω7 and/or Cω6), C and 11-methyl Cω7. The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, unidentified phospholipids, an unidentified aminolipid and unidentified lipids. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses, strain XJ4 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is XJ4 (=CGMCC 1.13778=LMG 30952).

Treatment of myopic foveoschisis macular buckling and vitrectomy.

Int J Ophthalmol 2017 18;10(5):815-818. Epub 2017 May 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha 410008, Hunan Province, China.

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the treatment of myopic foveoschisis patients using the macular buckling with L-shaped titanium plate and silicon sponge combined with vitrectomy. The data of the patients who underwent macular buckling combined with vitrectomy was collected. The study recorded the following parameters: best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), axial length, intraocular pressure, central macular thickness, and the position of the titanium plate. Following the surgery, the BCVA of the included patients were improved, whereas the axial lengths were reduced followed by resolution of the foveoschisis compared with that noted prior to the operations. All patients had orbital CT examination and the results indicated that the titanium plates were appropriately placed and were not in contact with the optic nerve. Therefore, it is effective to treat myopic foveaschisis by macular buckling using the L-shaped titanium plate and silicon sponge in the presence of vitrectomy.

Substrate-Controlled Product Divergence: Silver-Catalyzed Reaction of Trifluoromethyl Ketones with Terminal Alkynes.

ACS Omega 2017 Mar 22;2(3):1104-1115. Epub 2017 Mar 22.

School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Key Laboratory for Green Processing of Chemical Engineering of Xinjiang Bingtuan, Shihezi University, North 4th Road, No. 211, Shihezi, Xinjiang 832003, China.

A distinct dichotomy in product distribution was initially observed in the silver-catalyzed reaction of trifluoromethyl (CF) ketones with terminal alkynes having two different types of electronic natures. The domino reaction smoothly proceeded almost exclusively with high stereoselectivity with terminal alkynes containing ester groups, whereas alkynylation occurred in good yield when terminal alkynes containing aryl or alkyl groups were present. The results indicated that the electronic nature of terminal alkynes can act as a switch that enables either the domino reaction or alkynylation between terminal alkynes and CF ketones.
