Ultrastructural localization of the likely mechanoelectrical transduction channel protein, transmembrane-like channel 1 (TMC1) during development of cochlear hair cells.

Sci Rep 2019 Feb 4;9(1):1274. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

School of Life Sciences, Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire, ST5 5BG, UK.

Transmembrane channel like protein 1 (TMC1) is likely to be a pore-forming subunit of the transduction channel of cochlear hair cells that is mechanically gated by tension on tip links in the stereocilia bundle. To localise TMC1 precisely, we labelled mice cochleae of different ages using custom-made polyclonal antibodies to TMC1 for light and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Immunofluorescence revealed stereocilia labelling at P9 but not at P3 in apical hair cells. Read More

A cerebellopontine angle mouse model for the investigation of tumor biology, hearing, and neurological function in NF2-related vestibular schwannoma.

Nat Protoc 2019 Feb;14(2):541-555

Edwin L. Steele Laboratories, Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Neurofibromatosis type II (NF2) is a disease that lacks effective therapies. NF2 is characterized by bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VSs) that cause progressive and debilitating hearing loss, leading to social isolation and increased rates of depression. A major limitation in NF2 basic and translational research is the lack of animal models that allow the full spectrum of research into the biology and molecular mechanisms of NF2 tumor progression, as well as the effects on neurological function.

Multiple well-differentiated cardiac liposarcoma with a concomitant myocardial lipoma: A case report.

Mol Clin Oncol 2018 Dec 5;9(6):617-621. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Department of Radiology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning 110004, P.R. China.

A cardiac lipoma and a cardiac liposarcoma are very uncommon conditions; however, the simultaneous development of the two is extremely rare. In addition, the symptoms of these conditions are not evident in the vast majority of cases, making them easily missed during diagnosis. The present case report describes a case of well-differentiated cardiac liposarcoma with a concomitant myocardial lipoma that was misdiagnosed as multiple cardiac lipomas. Read More

Stem Cells Derived from Lipoma and Adipose Tissue-Similar Mesenchymal Phenotype but Different Differentiation Capacity Governed by Distinct Molecular Signature.

Cells 2018 Dec 8;7(12). Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, 11000 Belgrade, Serbia.

Lipomas are benign adipose tissue tumors of unknown etiology, which can vary in size, number, body localization and cell populations within the tissue. Lipoma-derived stem cells (LDSCs) are proposed as a potential tool in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering due to their similar characteristics with adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) reported so far. Our study is among the first giving detailed insights into the molecular signature and differences in the differentiation capacity of LDSCs in vitro compared to ADSCs. Read More

MDM2 RNA In Situ Hybridization for the Diagnosis of Atypical Lipomatous Tumor: A Study Evaluating DNA, RNA, and Protein Expression.

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Departments of Pathology.

The distinction of atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL) from its benign counterpart, lipoma, may represent a challenge. MDM2 DNA amplification is used as the gold standard as MDM2 immunohistochemistry lacks specificity and sensitivity. Herein, we investigate the diagnostic utility of MDM2 RNA in situ hybridization (RNA-ISH) and compare the test with MDM2 immunohistochemistry and MDM2 DNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in benign and malignant lipomatous neoplasms.
