CFTR mutation compromises spermatogenesis by enhancing miR-15b maturation and suppressing its regulatory target CDC25A.

Biol Reprod 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Joint Laboratory of Reproductive Medicine, SCU-CUHK, Key Laboratory of Obstetric, Gynecologic and Pediatric Diseases and Birth Defects of Ministry of Education, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610041, P.R. China.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have recently been shown to be important for spermatogenesis; both DROSHA and Dicer1 KO mice exhibit infertility due to abnormal miRNA expression. However, the roles of individual miRNAs in spermatogenesis remain elusive. Here we demonstrated that miR-15b, a member of the miR-15/16 family, is primarily expressed in testis. Read More

Estimation of Gastric Volume Before Anesthesia in Term-Pregnant Women Undergoing Elective Cesarean Section, Compared With Non-pregnant or First-Trimester Women Undergoing Minor Gynecological Surgical Procedures.

Clin Med Insights Womens Health 2019 14;12:1179562X19828372. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Gastroenterology Institute, Hillel Yaffe Medical Center, Hadera, Israel.

Background: Traditionally, intubation of pregnant women has been performed using a rapid sequence induction. This is due to the classical concept that women with more than 18 weeks of pregnancy (mid-second trimester) are always considered to have an increased risk of aspiration due to a number of factors, regardless of the fasting duration. Rapid sequence induction is associated with a higher rate of adverse events. Read More

ACOG Committee Opinion No. 768: Genetic Syndromes and Gynecologic Implications in Adolescents.

Authors:

Obstet Gynecol 2019 Mar;133(3):e226-e234

As adolescents with a genetic syndrome transition to adult medical care, they may be referred to obstetrician-gynecologists for routine preventive or contraceptive services, screening, or counseling for sexually transmitted infection, or for menstrual management. Although some genetic syndromes have no physical or intellectual impairment, others have significant ones; therefore, education and gynecologic care should be based on a patient's intellectual and physical capabilities. It is important to remember that adolescents with or without a genetic syndrome are sexual beings. Read More

Could the inhibitor of DNA binding 2 and 4 play a role in white matter injury?

Rev Neurosci 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Department of Pediatrics, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610041, China.

White matter injury (WMI) prevents the normal development of myelination, leading to central nervous system myelination disorders and the production of chronic sequelae associated with WMI, such as chronic dyskinesia, cognitive impairment and cerebral palsy. This results in a large emotional and socioeconomic burden. Decreased myelination in preterm infant WMI is associated with the delayed development or destruction of oligodendrocyte (OL) lineage cells, particularly oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs).

Loss-of-function mutations in QRICH2 cause male infertility with multiple morphological abnormalities of the sperm flagella.

Nat Commun 2019 01 25;10(1):433. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology, Joint Laboratory of Reproductive Medicine (SCU-CUHK), Key Laboratory of Obstetric, Gynecologic and Pediatric Diseases and Birth Defects of Ministry of Education, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, 610041, Chengdu, China.

Aberrant sperm flagella impair sperm motility and cause male infertility, yet the genes which have been identified in multiple morphological abnormalities of the flagella (MMAF) can only explain the pathogenic mechanisms of MMAF in a small number of cases. Here, we identify and functionally characterize homozygous loss-of-function mutations of QRICH2 in two infertile males with MMAF from two consanguineous families. Remarkably, Qrich2 knock-out (KO) male mice constructed by CRISPR-Cas9 technology present MMAF phenotypes and sterility. Read More

Pregnancy Epigenetic Signature in T Helper 17 and T Regulatory Cells in Multiple Sclerosis.

Front Immunol 2018 8;9:3075. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, University of Turin, Turin, Italy.

Increasing evidence supports the anti-inflammatory role of estrogens in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), originating from the observation of reduction in relapse rates among women with MS during pregnancy, but the molecular mechanisms are still not completely understood. Using an integrative data analysis, we identified T helper (Th) 17 and T regulatory (Treg) cell-type-specific regulatory regions (CSR) regulated by estrogen receptor alpha (ERα). These CSRs were validated in polarized Th17 from healthy donors (HD) and in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, Th17 and Treg cells from relapsing remitting (RR) MS patients and HD during pregnancy.
