The role of the membrane-associated periodic skeleton in axons.

Cell Mol Life Sci 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Nerve Regeneration Group, IBMC- Instituto de Biologia Molecular e Celular and i3S- Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde, Universidade do Porto, 4200-135, Porto, Portugal.

The identification of the membrane periodic skeleton (MPS), composed of a periodic lattice of actin rings interconnected by spectrin tetramers, was enabled by the development of super-resolution microscopy, and brought a new exciting perspective to our view of neuronal biology. This exquisite cytoskeleton arrangement plays an important role on mechanisms regulating neuronal (dys)function. The MPS was initially thought to provide mainly for axonal mechanical stability.

Iatrogenic Retinal Penetration from Intravitreal Injections.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2021 Jan-Apr;12(1):248-253. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Surgery, University of Illinois College of Medicine, Peoria, Illinois, USA.

We present 2 cases of iatrogenic retinal penetration from intravitreal (IVT) injections in a retrospective noncomparative case series of 2 patients. The first patient, an 81-year-old Caucasian male, developed dense vitreous hemorrhage soon after receiving an IVT bevacizumab injection for macular edema from central retinal vein occlusion. A 25-g vitrectomy 1 week later showed a retinal hole surrounded by fresh hemorrhages in the same quadrant as the IVT injection. Read More

Disrupted eye and head development in rainbow trout with reduced ultraviolet (sws1) opsin expression.

J Comp Neurol 2021 Aug 6;529(11):3013-3031. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Marine Biosciences, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, Tokyo, Japan.

Visual opsins are proteins expressed by retinal photoreceptors that capture light to begin the process of phototransduction. In vertebrates, the two types of photoreceptors (rods and cones) express one or multiple opsins and are distributed in variable patterns across the retina. Some cones form opsin retinal gradients, as in the mouse, whereas others form more demarcated opsin domains, as in the lattice-like mosaic retinas of teleost fishes. Read More

Heterozygous COL9A3 variants cause severe peripheral vitreoretinal degeneration and retinal detachment.

Eur J Hum Genet 2021 May 25;29(5):881-886. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Eye Genetics Research Unit, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Save Sight Institute, Children's Medical Research Institute, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

The COL9A3 gene encodes one of the three alpha chains of Type IX collagen, with heterozygous variants reported to cause multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, and suggested as contributory in some cases of sensorineural hearing loss. Patients with homozygous variants have midface hypoplasia, myopia, sensorineural hearing loss, epiphyseal changes and carry a diagnosis of Stickler syndrome. Variants in COL9A3 have not previously been reported to cause vitreoretinal degeneration and/or retinal detachments. Read More

A deep learning system for identifying lattice degeneration and retinal breaks using ultra-widefield fundus images.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Nov;7(22):618

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou 510060, China.

Background: Lattice degeneration and/or retinal breaks, defined as notable peripheral retinal lesions (NPRLs), are prone to evolving into rhegmatogenous retinal detachment which can cause severe visual loss. However, screening NPRLs is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Therefore, we aimed to develop and evaluate a deep learning (DL) system for automated identifying NPRLs based on ultra-widefield fundus (UWF) images. Read More

Oswestry Disability Index scores correlate with MRI measurements in degenerating intervertebral discs and endplates.

Eur J Pain 2020 02 17;24(2):346-353. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

Center for Imaging Research, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Background: Low back pain (LBP) is a widespread problem and the leading cause of disability worldwide. While the cause of LBP is multifactorial, several studies suggested that inflammatory mediators in damaged subchondral plates of degenerating discs may lead to chemical sensitization and mechanical stimulation, eventually causing pain. The goal of this study was to explore associations between such changes and LBP-related disability using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. Read More
