The Keap1-Nrf2 system is an evolutionarily conserved defense mechanism against oxidative and xenobiotic stress. Besides the exogenous stress response, Nrf2 has been found to regulate numerous cellular functions, including protein turnover and glucose metabolism; however, the evolutionary origins of these functions remain unknown. In the present study, we searched for novel target genes associated with the zebrafish Nrf2 to answer this question. Read More

With the potential of bias from subjective evaluation scores in spine surgery, there is a need for practical and accurate quantitative methods of analysing patient recovery. In recent years, technologies such as accelerometers and global positioning systems have been introduced as potential objective measures for pain and symptoms following spine surgery. Overall, this perspective article aims to discuss and critique currently utilised methods of monitoring spine surgical outcomes. Read More

Background: To study the relationship between the rs12255372 (G/T) polymorphism of the transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a Cameroonian population.
Methods: This case-control study included 60 T2DM patients and 60 healthy normoglycemic controls, all unrelated and of Cameroonian origin, aged above 40 years (range 40-87). The Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism - Polymerase Chain Reaction (RFLP-PCR) was used for genotyping. Read More
