G-quadruplex-forming oligodeoxyribonucleotides activate leukotriene synthesis in human neutrophils.

J Biomol Struct Dyn 2018 Sep 21:1-30. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

a Lomonosov Moscow State University, Belozersky Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology , Moscow 119234 , Russia.

Human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs, neutrophils) play a major role in the immune response to bacterial and fungal infections and eliminate pathogens through phagocytosis. During phagocytosis of microorganisms, the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) pathway is activated resulting in generation of leukotrienes, which mediate host defense. In this study, a library of oligodeoxyribonucleotides (ODNs) with varying numbers of human telomeric repeats (d(TTAGGG)) and their analogues with phosphorothioate internucleotide linkages and single-nucleotide substitutions was designed.

A Geneticist's View of Prostate Cancer: Prostate Cancer Treatment Considerations.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2018 ;1095:125-129

Cancer Research Center, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA.

Prostate cancer remains a life-threatening disease of men. While early detection has been helpful to reduce the mortality rate, we currently do not have a desired therapy. In recent years, new strategies have been proposed to treat prostate cancers with poor prognosis by utilizing genetically modified bacteria, including Salmonella typhimurium that preferentially replicate within solid tumors (1000:1 and up to 10,000:1 compared to non-cancerous tissue) destroying cancer cells without causing septic shock that is typically associated with wild-type S.

Spermine and oxacillin stress response on the cell wall synthesis and the global gene expression analysis in Methicillin-resistance Staphylococcus aureus.

Genes Genomics 2018 Sep 18. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Department of Clinical Laboratory and Nutritional Sciences, University of Massachusetts, Weed Hall 320, Lowell, MA, 01854-5125, USA.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a rapidly emerging bacteria causing infection, which has developed resistance to most of the beta-lactam antibiotics because of newly acquired low-affinity penicillin-binding protein (PBP2a), which can continue to build the cell wall when beta-lactams block other PBPs. Exogenous spermine exerts a dose-dependent inhibition effect on the growth of Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica serovar, and S. aureus. Read More

Salmonella stimulates pro-inflammatory signalling through p21-activated kinases bypassing innate immune receptors.

Nat Microbiol 2018 Sep 17. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Department of Microbial Pathogenesis, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA.

Microbial infections are most often countered by inflammatory responses that are initiated through the recognition of conserved microbial products by innate immune receptors and result in pathogen expulsion. However, inflammation can also lead to pathology. Tissues such as the intestinal epithelium, which are exposed to microbial products, are therefore subject to stringent negative regulatory mechanisms to prevent signalling through innate immune receptors.

Invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella in sickle cell disease in Africa: is increased gut permeability the missing link?

J Transl Med 2018 Aug 30;16(1):239. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, USA.

Non-typhoidal Salmonella usually induces self-limiting gastroenteritis. However, in many parts of Africa, especially in individuals who are malnourished, infected with malaria, or have sickle cell disease, the organism causes serious and potentially fatal systemic infections. Since the portal of entry of non-typhoidal Salmonella into the systemic circulation is by way of the intestine, we argue that an increased gut permeability plays a vital role in the initiation of invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella in these patients.

Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment of Salmonellosis from the Consumption of Australian Pork: Minced Meat from Retail to Burgers Prepared and Consumed at Home.

Risk Anal 2018 Aug 24. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Statistical Process Improvement Consulting and Training Pty Ltd, Gumeracha, South Australia, 5233, Australia.

Pork burgers could be expected to have an elevated risk of salmonellosis compared to other pork products due to their comminuted nature. A stochastic risk assessment was performed to estimate the risk of salmonellosis from Australian pork burgers and considered risk-affecting factors in the pork supply chain from retail to consumption at home. Conditions modeled included prevalence and concentration of Salmonella in pork mince, time and temperature effects during retail, consumer transport, and domestic storage and the effect of cooking, with the probability of illness from consumption estimated based on these effects.
