Effect of sugar metabolite methylglyoxal on equine lamellar explants: An ex vivo model of laminitis.

PLoS One 2021 27;16(7):e0253840. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Veterinary Science, University of Turin, Grugliasco (TO), Italy.

Laminitis is one of the most devastating diseases in equine medicine, and although several etiopathogenetic mechanisms have been proposed, few clear answers have been identified to date. Several lines of evidence point towards its underlying pathology as being metabolism-related. In the carbonyl stress pathway, sugars are converted to methylglyoxal (MG)-a highly reactive α-oxoaldehyde, mainly derived during glycolysis in eukaryotic cells from the triose phosphates: D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate.

Int J Anal Chem 2021 2;2021:9984230. Epub 2021 Jul 2.

Key Laboratory of Control of Quality and Safety for Aquatic Products (Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs), Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences, Beijing 100141, China.

Pendimethalin has been considered a moderately to extremely toxic compound for fish and aquatic organism. This study developed the determination of dynamic residual distribution for pendimethalin in crucian carp tissues (muscle, liver, kidney, gill, and blood) under semistatic exposure system by high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) method. The pendimethalin residues in various fish tissues increased initially and then decreased, and the residue amount of pendimethalin varied from tissue to tissue of crucian carp. Read More

A chronic low-dose magnesium L-lactate administration has a beneficial effect on the myocardium and the skeletal muscles.

J Physiol Biochem 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

INRAE, UNH, Unité de Nutrition Humaine, CRNH Auvergne, Université Clermont Auvergne, 28 Place Henri Dunant, 63000, Clermont-Ferrand, France.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether magnesium L-lactate is responsible for having a beneficial effect on the myocardium and the skeletal muscles and how this substrate acts at the molecular level. Twenty seven young male Wistar rats were supplied with a magnesium L-lactate (L) solution, a magnesium chloride (M) solution and/or water (W) as a vehicle for 10 weeks. The treated animals absorbed the L and M solutions as they wished since they also had free access to water. Read More

Retinoblastoma cell-derived exosomes promote angiogenesis of human vesicle endothelial cells through microRNA-92a-3p.

Cell Death Dis 2021 Jul 13;12(7):695. Epub 2021 Jul 13.

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University, No.7 Jinsui Road, Tianhe District, Guangzhou City, China.

Exosomes derived from tumor cells play a key role in tumor development. In the present study, we identified the bioactivity of exosomes released from WERI-Rb1 retinoblastoma cells in tumor angiogenesis, as well as the underlying mechanism, through biochemical methods and animal experiments. Our in vitro data showed that exosomes could be engulfed by human vesicle endothelial cells (HUVECs), significantly promote cell viability and induce an inflammatory response in HUVECs by increasing the expression of a series of related genes, such as IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, MCP-1, VCAM1, and ICAM1.

Morphological characterization using scanning electron microscopy of fly artifacts deposited by Calliphora vomitoria (Diptera: Calliphoridae) on household materials.

Int J Legal Med 2021 Jul 1. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences, Unit of Legal Medicine, University of Bologna, Via Irnerio 49, 40126, Bologna, Italy.

Insects found at a crime scene can produce traces referred to as fly artifacts (FA) due to their movement over the corpse and the manner in which they feed upon it. These can be detrimental for carrying out criminal investigations. Confusing a FA with a genuine bloodspot can lead to misinterpretations, also taking into consideration that FA may contain a human DNA profile. Read More

Improvements in Glycemic Control Achieved by Altering the t Setting in the iLet Bionic Pancreas When Using Fast-Acting Insulin Aspart: A Randomized Trial.

Diabetes Ther 2021 Jul 19;12(7):2019-2033. Epub 2021 Jun 19.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA.

Introduction: We investigated the safety of, and glucose control by, the insulin-only configuration of the iLet bionic pancreas delivering fast-acting insulin aspart (faster aspart), using the same insulin-dosing algorithm but different time to maximal serum drug concentration (t) settings, in adults with type 1 diabetes.

Methods: We performed a single-center, single-blinded, crossover (two 7-day treatment periods) escalation trial over three sequential cohorts. Participants from each cohort were randomized to a default t setting (t [t = 65 min]) followed by a non-default t setting (t [t = 50 min; cohort 1], t [t = 40 min; cohort 2], t [t = 30 min; cohort 3]), or vice versa, all with faster aspart.
