Dysregulation of human NEFM and NEFH mRNA stability by ALS-linked miRNAs.

Mol Brain 2018 07 20;11(1):43. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Molecular Medicine Group, Robarts Research Institute, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, London, ON, Canada.

Neurofilaments (NFs) are the most abundant cytoskeletal component of vertebrate myelinated axons. NFs function by determining axonal caliber, promoting axonal growth and forming a 3-dimensional lattice that supports the organization of cytoplasmic organelles. The stoichiometry of NF protein subunits (NFL, NFM and NFH) has to be tightly controlled to avoid the formation of NF neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions (NCIs), axonal degeneration and neuronal death, all pathological hallmarks of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Authors:
Franck Pichaud

Front Cell Neurosci 2018 29;12:90. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

Medical Research Council, Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, London, United Kingdom.

The fly photoreceptor has long been used as a model to study sensory neuron morphogenesis and retinal degeneration. In particular, elucidating how these cells are built continues to help further our understanding of the mechanisms of polarized cell morphogenesis, intracellular trafficking and the causes of human retinal pathologies. The conserved PAR complex, which in flies consists of Cdc42-PAR6-aPKC-Bazooka, and the transmembrane protein Crumbs (Crb) are key players during photoreceptor morphogenesis. Read More

Dark Rearing Does Not Prevent Rod Oxidative Stress In Vivo in Pde6brd10 Mice.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2018 03;59(3):1659-1665

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan, United States.

Purpose: In cyclic light-reared Pde6brd10 mice, rod cell oxidative stress contributes to the degenerative phenotype. Dark rearing Pde6brd10 mice slows but does not prevent atrophy. This suggests that outer retinal oxidative stress occurs in Pde6brd10 mice independent of light exposure, a hypothesis tested in this study. Read More

Spin-lock imaging of early tissue pH changes in ischemic rat brain.

NMR Biomed 2018 04 9;31(4):e3893. Epub 2018 Feb 9.

Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA.

We have previously reported that the dispersion of spin-lattice relaxation rates in the rotating frame (R ) of tissue water protons at high field can be dominated by chemical exchange contributions. Ischemia in brain causes changes in tissue pH, which in turn may affect proton exchange rates. Amide proton transfer (APT, a form of chemical exchange saturation transfer) has been shown to be sensitive to chemical exchange rates and able to detect pH changes non-invasively following ischemic stroke.

Rational Design of Cobalt-Iron Selenides for Highly Efficient Electrochemical Water Oxidation.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2017 Oct 20;9(39):33833-33840. Epub 2017 Sep 20.

School of Optical and Electronic Information, Huazhong University of Science and Technology , Wuhan 430074, P. R. China.

Exploring active, stable, earth-abundant, low-cost, and high-efficiency electrocatalysts is highly desired for large-scale industrial applications toward the low-carbon economy. In this study, we apply a versatile selenizing technology to synthesize Se-enriched CoFeSe catalysts on nickel foams for oxygen evolution reactions (OERs) and disclose the relationship between the electronic structures of CoFeSe (via regulating the atom ratio of Co/Fe) and their OER performance. Owing to the fact that the electron configuration of the CoFeSe compounds can be tuned by the incorporated Fe species (electron transfer and lattice distortion), the catalytic activity can be adjusted according to the Co/Fe ratios in the catalyst.

Cooperation of Three Chromophores Generates the Water-Resistant Nitrate Nonlinear Optical Material Bi TeO OH(NO ).

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2017 01 30;56(2):540-544. Epub 2016 Nov 30.

State Key Laboratory of Structural Chemistry, Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Fuzhou, Fujian, 350002, P.R. China.

Nitrates have long been ignored for practical uses as nonlinear optical (NLO) materials because they are usually very easy to dissolve in water; despite this, the π-conjugated [NO ] is among the most desirable NLO-active structural units. The cooperation of three structural chromophores, namely, Bi O OH short chains with 6s lone pair electrons, distorted TeO octahedra with d electrons, and π-conjugated [NO ] triangles, generates a new nitrate NLO material, Bi TeO OH(NO ) , which exhibits an enhanced phase-matchable NLO response of three times that of KH PO (3×KH PO ), exceeding those of most nitrate NLO materials. Remarkably, the new material did not show obvious weight loss and degeneration of NLO response after being dipped in de-ionized water for 24 h, indicating that it is highly resistant to water.

Peripheral Retinal Vascular Patterns in Patients with Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment in Taiwan.

PLoS One 2016 24;11(2):e0149176. Epub 2016 Feb 24.

School of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

This is an observational study of fluorescein angiography (FA) in consecutive patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in Changhua Christian Hospital to investigate the peripheral retinal vascular patterns in those patients. All patients had their age, sex, axial length (AXL), and refraction status (RF) recorded. According to the findings in FA of the peripheral retina, the eyes were divided into 4 groups: in group 1, there was a ramified pattern of peripheral retinal vasculature with gradual tapering; in group 2, there was an abrupt ending of peripheral vasculature with peripheral non-perfusion; in group 3, there was a curving route of peripheral vasculature forming vascular arcades or anastomosis; and in group 4, the same as in group 3, but with one or more wedge-shaped avascular notches.

The neuronal and actin commitment: Why do neurons need rings?

Cytoskeleton (Hoboken) 2016 Sep 7;73(9):424-34. Epub 2016 Mar 7.

Nerve Regeneration Group, IBMC - Instituto De Biologia Molecular E Celular, Porto, Portugal.

The role of the actin cytoskeleton in neurons has been extensively studied in actin-enriched compartments such as the growth cone and dendritic spines. The recent discovery of actin rings in the axon shaft and in dendrites, together with the identification of axon actin trails, has advanced our understanding on actin organization and dynamics in neurons. However, specifically in the case of actin rings, the mechanisms regulating their nucleation and assembly, and the functions that they may exert in axons and dendrites remain largely unexplored.
