Background: Induced resistance to Helicoverpa armigera through exogenous application of jasmonic acid (JA) and salicylic acid (SA) was studied in groundnut genotypes (ICGV 86699, ICGV 86031, ICG 2271 and ICG 1697) with different levels of resistance to insects and the susceptible check JL 24 under greenhouse conditions. Activities of oxidative enzymes and the amounts of secondary metabolites and proteins were quantified at 6 days after JA and SA application/insect infestation. Data were also recorded on plant damage and H. armigera larval weights and survival.

Results: Higher levels of enzymatic activities and amounts of secondary metabolites were observed in the insect-resistant genotypes pretreated with JA and then infested with H. armigera than in JL 24. The insect-resistant genotypes suffered lower insect damage and resulted in poor survival and lower weights of H. armigera larvae than JL 24. In some cases, JA and SA showed similar effects.

Conclusion: JA and SA induced the activity of antioxidative enzymes in groundnut plants against H. armigera, and reduced its growth and development. However, induced response to application of JA was greater than to SA, and resulted in reduced plant damage, and larval weights and survival, suggesting that induced resistance can be used as a component of pest management in groundnut.

PTEN and miR-26b: Promising prognostic biomarkers in initiation and progression of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

J Oral Pathol Med 2018 Oct 29. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Dental Research Center, Dentistry Research Institute Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

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

Human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells treated with okadaic acid express phosphorylated high molecular weight tau-immunoreactive protein species.

J Neurosci Methods 2018 Sep 29. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Department of Neuroscience, Croatian Institute for Brain Research, University of Zagreb Medical School, Zagreb, Croatia. Electronic address:

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

"Abortion--it is my own body": women's narratives about influences on their abortion decisions in Ghana.

Health Care Women Int 2014 1;35(7-9):918-36. Epub 2014 Jul 1.

a Department of Sociology and Anthropology , University of Cape Coast , Central Region , Cape Coast , Ghana.

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

Deletions of BRCA1/2 and p53 R248W gain-of-function mutation suggest impaired homologous recombination repair in fragile histidine triad-negative sebaceous gland carcinomas.

Br J Dermatol 2008 Dec 19;159(6):1282-9. Epub 2008 Aug 19.

Universitätsklinik und Poliklinik für Innere Medizin I, Sektion Molek. GI Onkologie, Universität Halle-Wittenberg, 06120 Halle, Germany.

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
