Long-term effect of apomorphine infusion in advanced Parkinson's disease: a real-life study.

NPJ Parkinsons Dis 2021 Jun 11;7(1):50. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Neurology Department, Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, AP-HP, Paris, France.

Long-term effects of continuous subcutaneous apomorphine infusion (CSAI) on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and predictors of CSAI discontinuation are poorly known. Data from consecutive advanced Parkinson's disease patients treated in routine care were retrospectively collected over 24 months after CSAI initiation, with a focus on the 39-item Parkinson's disease questionnaire (PDQ-39). We determined predictors of CSAI discontinuation and HRQoL improvement using multiple regression analysis. Read More

Fucosylated Proteome Profiling Identifies a Fucosylated, Non-Ribosomal, Stress-Responsive Species of Ribosomal Protein S3.

Cells 2021 May 25;10(6). Epub 2021 May 25.

Department of Tumor Biology, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, FL 33602, USA.

Alterations in genes encoding for proteins that control fucosylation are known to play causative roles in several developmental disorders, such as Dowling-Degos disease 2 and congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIc (CDGIIc). Recent studies have provided evidence that changes in fucosylation can contribute to the development and progression of several different types of cancers. It is therefore important to gain a detailed understanding of how fucosylation is altered in disease states so that interventions may be developed for therapeutic purposes. Read More

Multiomics Integration in Skin Diseases with Alterations in Notch Signaling Pathway: PlatOMICs Phase 1 Deployment.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Feb 3;22(4). Epub 2021 Feb 3.

Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Qatar, Doha 2713, Qatar.

The high volume of information produced in the age of omics was and still is an important step to understanding several pathological processes, providing the enlightenment of complex molecular networks and the identification of molecular targets associated with many diseases. Despite these remarkable scientific advances, the majority of the results are disconnected and divergent, making their use limited. Skin diseases with alterations in the Notch signaling pathway were extensively studied during the omics era. Read More

Hidradenitis Suppurativa Associated with Galli-Galli Disease: Extending the Link with Dowling-Degos Disease.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2020 Dec 1;13(12):38-40. Epub 2020 Dec 1.

Ms. Meléndez González is with the Universidad Central del Caribe School of Medicine in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

Galli-Galli disease (GGD) is a rare genodermatosis that is distinguished from Dowling-Degos disease (DDD) by the histologic finding of acantholysis. We present a case of a female patient with pruritic intertriginous plaques and history of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). While reports exist associating DDD with HS, to our knowledge, GGD in association with HS has not been reported in recent literature. Read More

Structure, function, and pathology of protein O-glucosyltransferases.

Cell Death Dis 2021 01 12;12(1):71. Epub 2021 Jan 12.

CAS Center for Excellence in Biotic Interactions, College of Life Science, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, 100049, China.

Protein O-glucosylation is a crucial form of O-glycosylation, which involves glucose (Glc) addition to a serine residue within a consensus sequence of epidermal growth factor epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like repeats found in several proteins, including Notch. Glc provides stability to EGF-like repeats, is required for S2 cleavage of Notch, and serves to regulate the trafficking of Notch, crumbs2, and Eyes shut proteins to the cell surface. Genetic and biochemical studies have shown a link between aberrant protein O-glucosylation and human diseases. Read More

Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Georgia, 315 Riverbend Road, Athens, GA, 30602, USA. Electronic address:

The Notch receptors are a family of transmembrane proteins that mediate direct cell-cell interactions and control numerous cell-fate specifications in humans. The extracellular domains of mammalian Notch proteins contain 29-36 tandem epidermal growth factor-like (EGF) repeats, most of which have O-linked glycan modifications: O-glucose added by POGLUT1, O-fucose added by POFUT1 and elongated by Fringe enzymes, and O-GlcNAc added by EOGT. The extracellular domain is also N-glycosylated. Read More

Degos-like lesions as a cutaneous manifestation of cytomegalovirus infection: A rare and serious complication in a patient with drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome.

J Dermatol 2021 Apr 11;48(4):533-536. Epub 2020 Dec 11.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Cytomegalovirus causes a myriad of clinical features, potentially affecting any organ system, significantly increasing morbidity and even mortality. Vascular endothelial cell infection by cytomegalovirus has been implicated in the development of vasculopathy, possibly accounting for the clinical association between cytomegalovirus and vascular thrombosis. In contrast with visceral organ involvement, the cutaneous manifestations of cytomegalovirus are variable and rarely described. Read More

The deregulation of NOTCH pathway, inflammatory cytokines, and keratinization genes in two Dowling-Degos disease patients with hidradenitis suppurativa.

Am J Med Genet A 2020 11 17;182(11):2662-2665. Epub 2020 Aug 17.

Department of Dermatology, State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Dowling-Degos disease (DDD) is a rare autosomal-dominant genodermatosis and it has been associated with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). Deregulation of NOTCH pathway has been linked to the development of HS in DDD context (DDD-HS). However, molecular alterations in DDD-HS, including altered gene expression of NOTCH and downstream effectors that are involved in the follicular differentiation and inflammatory response, are poorly defined.
