Backgrounds: Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) is the most common malignancy of the oral cavity. Phosphatase and TENsin homolog (PTEN) is a well-known tumor suppressive gene regulated by several biomarkers including a small single stranded molecule, microRNA26b (miR-26b). Here, we studied the expression of PTEN and miR-26b in OSCC specimens in comparison with adjacent normal mucosa. Read More

Background: Early stages of Alzheimer's disease (AD) are characterized by high phosphorylation of microtubule-associated protein tau, which may result from the downregulation of protein phosphatases.
New Method: In order to model phosphatase downregulation and analyze its effect on tau aggregation in vitro, we treated neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells with okadaic acid (OA), a protein phosphatase inhibitor, and examined high molecular weight phospho-tau species.
Results And Comparison With Existing Methods: OA treatment led to the appearance of heat-stable protein species with apparent molecular weight around 100 kDa, which were immunoreactive to anti-tau antibodies against phosphorylated Ser202 and Ser396. Read More

Globally, abortion has emerged as a critical determinant of maternal morbidity and mortality. The Ghana government amended the country's abortion law in 1985 to promote safe abortion. This article discusses the findings of a qualitative study that explored the decision-making experiences of 28 female abortion seekers aged between 15 and 30 years in Ghana. Read More

Background: Sebaceous gland carcinomas represent rare malignancies of the skin and some 60% of them demonstrate high-grade microsatellite instability on the background of a defective mismatch repair system. However, a significant fraction of periocular sebaceous gland carcinomas exhibits microsatellite stability associated with a frequent loss of the candidate tumour suppressor fragile histidine triad (FHIT).
Objectives: We hypothesized that in those sebaceous gland carcinomas with microsatellite stability and loss of FHIT, effector molecules participating in homologous recombination repair (HRR), such as BRCA1/2, could be somatically inactivated. Read More
