Identification of genes for lignin peroxidases and manganese peroxidases in ectomycorrhizal fungi.

New Phytol 2001 Oct;152(1):151-158

Mycorrhiza Research Group, School of Science Food & Horticulture, University of Western Sydney, Parramatta Campus, Locked Bag 1797, PENRITH SOUTH DC, NSW 1797, Australia.

•  Genes for ligninolytic enzymes, normally associated with white-rot fungi, are shown to be widespread in a broad taxonomic range of ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi. •  ECM fungi were screened for lignin peroxidase (LiP) and manganese peroxidase (MnP) genes by PCR using primers specific for known isozymes in the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium, with DNA sequencing used to confirm the identity of the amplified fragments. •  Genes for LiPs were detected in ECM fungi representing the orders Agaricales, Aphyllophorales, Boletales, Cantharellales, Hymenochaetales, Sclerodermatales, Stereales and Thelephorales.

A Case of Seronegative Primary Sjögren's Syndrome Complicated by Takayasu Arteritis in a Japanese Girl.

Mod Rheumatol Case Rep 2022 Aug 11. Epub 2022 Aug 11.

Department of Paediatrics, Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, Japan.

In paediatric, primary Sjögren's syndrome, the initial symptoms manifest systemically, such as fever, general fatigue, and lymphadenopathy, rather than sicca symptoms. Most children with primary Sjögren's syndrome have autoantibodies, such as antinuclear, anti-Ro/SS-A, and/or anti-La/SS-B antibodies; however, some patients are seronegative. Similar to paediatric patiantis with primary Sjögren's syndrome, those with Takayasu arteritis initially only present constitutional symptoms, making it difficult to suspect, unless characteristic features are present.

Cassava Frogskin Disease: Current Knowledge on a Re-Emerging Disease in the Americas.

Plants (Basel) 2022 Jul 14;11(14). Epub 2022 Jul 14.

Cassava Program, Crops for Nutrition and Health, International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), The Americas Hub, Km 17 Recta Cali-Palmira, Cali 763537, Colombia.

Cassava frogskin disease (CFSD) is a graft-transmissible disease of cassava reported for the first time in the 1970s, in Colombia. The disease is characterized by the formation of longitudinal lip-like fissures on the peel of the cassava storage roots and a progressive reduction in fresh weight and starch content. Since its first report, different pathogens have been identified in CFSD-affected plants and improved sequencing technologies have unraveled complex mixed infections building up in plants with severe root symptoms.

Maleimide-Functionalized Liposomes: Prolonged Retention and Enhanced Efficacy of Doxorubicin in Breast Cancer with Low Systemic Toxicity.

Molecules 2022 Jul 20;27(14). Epub 2022 Jul 20.

Key Laboratory of Coarse Cereal Processing, School of Food and Biological Engineering, Chengdu University, Chengdu 610106, China.

Cell surface thiols can be targeted by thiol-reactive groups of various materials such as peptides, nanoparticles, and polymers. Here, we used the maleimide group, which can rapidly and covalently conjugate with thiol groups, to prepare surface-modified liposomes (M-Lip) that prolong retention of doxorubicin (Dox) at tumor sites, enhancing its efficacy. Surface modification with the maleimide moiety had no effect on the drug loading efficiency or drug release properties. Read More
