Olfactory marker protein (OMP) regulates formation and refinement of the olfactory glomerular map.

Nat Commun 2018 11 29;9(1):5073. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA.

Inputs from olfactory sensory neuron (OSN) axons expressing the same type of odorant receptor (OR) converge in the glomerulus of the main olfactory bulb. A key marker of mature OSNs is olfactory marker protein (OMP), whose deletion has been associated with deficits in OSN signal transduction and odor discrimination. Here, we investigate glomerular odor responses and anatomical architecture in mice in which one or both alleles of OMP are replaced by the fluorescent synaptic activity reporter, synaptopHluorin.

Inflammatory pathways are upregulated in the nasal epithelium in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Respir Res 2018 Nov 26;19(1):233. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Respiratorias Ismael Cosío Villegas, Tlalpan 4502, CP 14080, Mexico City, Mexico.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is characterized by progressive scarring of the lung parenchyma, leading to respiratory failure and death. High resolution computed tomography of the chest is often diagnostic for IPF, but its cost and the risk of radiation exposure limit its use as a screening tool even in patients at high risk for the disease. In patients with lung cancer, investigators have detected transcriptional signatures of disease in airway and nasal epithelial cells distal to the site of disease that are clinically useful as screening tools.

Pathogenesis of Rift Valley Fever Virus Aerosol Infection in Knockout Hamsters.

Viruses 2018 11 19;10(11). Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Department of Animal, Dairy and Veterinary Sciences, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322, USA.

Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) is an emerging pathogen capable of causing severe disease in livestock and humans and can be transmitted by multiple routes including aerosol exposure. Several animal models have been developed to gain insight into the pathogenesis associated with aerosolized RVFV infection, but work with these models is restricted to high containment biosafety level (BSL) laboratories limiting their use for antiviral and vaccine development studies. Here, we report on a new RVFV inhalation infection model in KO hamsters exposed to aerosolized MP-12 vaccine virus by nose-only inhalation that enables a more accurate delivery and measurement of exposure dose.

Predictive ability of bedside nasal endoscopy to diagnose invasive fungal sinusitis in a pediatric population.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Dec 19;115:82-88. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Division of Otolaryngology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Introduction: Invasive fungal sinusitis (IFS) is a rare but deadly clinical entity that occurs in immunocompromised patients. Diagnosis in children typically requires operative biopsies under general anesthesia, which has associated risks. Findings on bedside nasal endoscopy (BNE) can be used with history, exam, and imaging to determine the need for surgery, however, the accuracy of this tool has not been established among pediatric patients.

Skull base anatomy and surgical safety in isolated and CHARGE-associated bilateral choanal atresia.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Dec 14;115:61-64. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Department of Otolaryngology, Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia; Murdoch Children's Research Institute, University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: Bilateral choanal atresia (BCA) is associated with a high incidence of congenital abnormalities that include skull base anomalies and defects. Surgical repair of BCA is necessary in the early neonatal period and any altered anatomy of the adjacent skull base will heighten the risk of intracranial injury. This risk may be further increased in patients with CHARGE syndrome. Read More

Sexual rejection via a vomeronasal receptor-triggered limbic circuit.

Nat Commun 2018 10 26;9(1):4463. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Applied Biological Chemistry, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, 113-8657, Japan.

Mating drive is balanced by a need to safeguard resources for offspring, yet the neural basis for negative regulation of mating remains poorly understood. In rodents, pheromones critically regulate sexual behavior. Here, we observe suppression of adult female sexual behavior in mice by exocrine gland-secreting peptide 22 (ESP22), a lacrimal protein from juvenile mice. Read More
