Probing the structure-function relationship of hemoglobin in living human red blood cells.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2020 May 29;239:118530. Epub 2020 May 29.

Saint Louis University, Chemistry Department, 3501 Laclede Ave., 63103 Saint Louis, MO, United States. Electronic address:

Hemoglobin (Hb) is a key component of respiratory system and as such plays important role in human physiology. The studies of Hb's structure and functions are usually performed on cell-free protein; however, it has been shown that there are functionally relevant differences between isolated Hb and Hb present inside red blood cells (RBCs). It is clear that new experimental approaches are needed to understand the origin of these differences and to gain insight into the structure-function relationship of Hb within intact living cells.

Click Cross-linking Improves Retention and Targeting of Refillable Alginate Depots.

Acta Biomater 2020 Jun 1. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University - Raleigh. 1840 Entrepreneur Drive. Raleigh, NC 27695, USA. Electronic address:

Injectable alginate hydrogels have demonstrated utility in tissue engineering and drug delivery applications due in part to their mild gelation conditions, low host responses and chemical versatility. Recently, the potential of these gels has expanded with the introduction of refillable hydrogel depots - alginate gels chemically decorated with click chemistry groups to efficiently capture prodrug refills from the blood. Unfortunately, high degrees of click group substitution on alginate lead to poor viscoelastic properties and loss of ionic cross-linking. Read More

Reasoning about epistemic possibilities.

Acta Psychol (Amst) 2020 Jun 1;208:103081. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA; Department of Psychology, New York University, 6 Washington Place, New York, NY 10003, USA.

Reasoning about epistemic possibilities - those based on knowledge - is fundamental in daily life. It is formalized in modal logics, of which there are infinitely many, based on the semantics of 'possible worlds'. An alternative psychological theory postulates that possibilities (and probabilities) in daily life are based on the human ability to construct mental models of finite alternatives, which can each be realized in an indefinite number of different ways.

Structural basis of the dominant inheritance of hypermethioninemia associated with the Arg264His mutation in the MAT1A gene.

Acta Crystallogr D Struct Biol 2020 Jun 29;76(Pt 6):594-607. Epub 2020 May 29.

Molecular Biophysics Group, Institute of Systems, Molecular and Integrative Biology, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, University of Liverpool, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, United Kingdom.

Methionine adenosyltransferase (MAT) deficiency, characterized by isolated persistent hypermethioninemia (IPH), is caused by mutations in the MAT1A gene encoding MATαl, one of the major hepatic enzymes. Most of the associated hypermethioninemic conditions are inherited as autosomal recessive traits; however, dominant inheritance of hypermethioninemia is caused by an Arg264His (R264H) mutation. This mutation has been confirmed in a screening programme of newborns as the most common mutation in babies with IPH. Read More

Structural studies of geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase, a prenyltransferase found in thermophilic Euryarchaeota.

Acta Crystallogr D Struct Biol 2020 Jun 29;76(Pt 6):542-557. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Chemistry and Physics, DeSales University, 2755 Station Avenue, Center Valley, PA 18034, USA.

Archaea are uniquely adapted to thrive in harsh environments, and one of these adaptations involves the archaeal membrane lipids, which are characterized by their isoprenoid alkyl chains connected via ether linkages to glycerol 1-phosphate. The membrane lipids of the thermophilic and acidophilic euryarchaeota Thermoplasma volcanium are exclusively glycerol dibiphytanyl glycerol tetraethers. The first committed step in the biosynthetic pathway of these archaeal lipids is the formation of the ether linkage between glycerol 1-phosphate and geranylgeranyl diphosphate, and is catalyzed by the enzyme geranylgeranylglyceryl phosphate synthase (GGGPS).

Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Science, Osaka University, Suita, Osaka 565-0871, Japan.

Uridine diphosphate glycosyltransferases (UGTs) are ubiquitous enzymes that are involved in the glycosylation of small molecules. As glycosylation improves the water solubility and stability of hydrophobic compounds, interest in the use of UGTs for the synthesis of glycosides of poorly soluble compounds is increasing. While sugar-donor recognition in UGTs is conserved with the presence of a plant secondary product glycosyltransferase (PSPG) motif, the basis of the recognition of the sugar acceptor and the regioselectivity of the products is poorly understood owing to low sequence identity around the acceptor-binding region.

Considering the Better Donor-side in Reconstruction of Composite Radius After Resection of Spindle Cell Sarcoma Using Free Fibular Osteocutaneous Flap: A Case Report.

Yonago Acta Med 2020 May 22;63(2):127-131. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Division of Orthopedic Surgery, Department of Sensory and Motor Organs, School of Medicine, Tottori University Faculty of Medicine, Yonago 683-8503 Japan.

Reconstruction of bone and soft-tissue defects in the forearm is a surgery that often proves unsuccessful. Free fibular osteocutaneous flaps are a useful material for reconstruction that enable simultaneous reconstruction of bone, skin, and soft tissues. However, in free fibular osteocutaneous flaps, the fibula, skin, and vascular pedicle are tightly bound together by the posterior intermuscular septum and the perforators that pass through the septum, giving the disadvantage of a low degree of freedom when setting these structures in place.
