Microheart: A microfluidic pump for functional vascular culture in microphysiological systems.

J Biomech 2021 Feb 14;119:110330. Epub 2021 Feb 14.

Department of Biological Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA; Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA. Electronic address:

Advances in microphysiological systems have prompted the need for long-term cell culture under physiological flow conditions. Conventional laboratory pumps typically lack the ability to deliver cell culture media at the low flow rates required to meet the physiological ranges of fluid flow, and are often pulsatile or require flow reversal. Here, a microfluidic-based pump is presented, which allows for the controlled delivery of media for vascular microphysiological applications. Read More

Convolutional neural networks for breast cancer detection in mammography: A survey.

Comput Biol Med 2021 Feb 9;131:104248. Epub 2021 Feb 9.

University of Miami, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Memorial Dr, Coral Gables, FL, 33146, USA. Electronic address:

Despite its proven record as a breast cancer screening tool, mammography remains labor-intensive and has recognized limitations, including low sensitivity in women with dense breast tissue. In the last ten years, Neural Network advances have been applied to mammography to help radiologists increase their efficiency and accuracy. This survey aims to present, in an organized and structured manner, the current knowledge base of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in mammography. Read More

A Simple Screening Strategy for Complex RNA-DNA Hybrid Nanoshapes.

Methods 2021 Feb 22. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, California 92093, USA; Center for Drug Discovery Innovation, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA. Electronic address:

The design of hybrid nucleic acid nanomaterials capitalizes on the partitioning of architectural and functional roles between structurally diverse RNA modules and chemically robust DNA components. Selecting optimal combinations of RNA and DNA building blocks is the key to preparing stable polygonal RNA-DNA hybrid nanoshapes. Here, we outline a simple screening strategy by gel electrophoresis under native folding conditions to identify combinations of RNA and DNA modules that self-assemble to robust polygonal hybrid nanoshapes.

Re-defining synthetic lethality by phenotypic profiling for precision oncology.

Cell Chem Biol 2021 Feb 16. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM), HiLIFE, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland; Institute for Cancer Research, Department of Cancer Genetics, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway; Centre for Biostatistics and Epidemiology (OCBE), Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway. Electronic address:

High-throughput functional and genomic screening techniques provide systematic means for phenotypic discovery. Using synthetic lethality (SL) as a paradigm for anticancer drug and target discovery, we describe how these screening technologies may offer new possibilities to identify therapeutically relevant and selective SL interactions by addressing some of the challenges that have made robust discovery of SL candidates difficult. We further introduce an extended concept of SL interaction, in which a simultaneous perturbation of two or more cellular components reduces cell viability more than expected by their individual effects, which we feel is highly befitting for anticancer applications.
