Development of omics biomarkers for estrogen exposure using mRNA, miRNA and piRNAs.

Aquat Toxicol 2021 Mar 12;235:105807. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

US Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development, 26 W. Martin Luther King Dr., Cincinnati, OH 45268, United States. Electronic address:

The number of chemicals requiring risk evaluation exceeds our capacity to provide the underlying data using traditional methodology. This has led to an increased focus on the development of novel approach methodologies. This work aimed to expand the panel of gene expression-based biomarkers to include responses to estrogens, to identify training strategies that maximize the range of applicable concentrations, and to evaluate the potential for two classes of small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs), microRNA (miRNA) and piwi-interacting RNA (piRNA), as biomarkers.

Quantitative salivary gland SPECT/CT using deep convolutional neural networks.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 9;11(1):7842. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, 103 Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03080, Korea.

Quantitative single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) using Tc-99m pertechnetate aids in evaluating salivary gland function. However, gland segmentation and quantitation of gland uptake is challenging. We develop a salivary gland SPECT/CT with automated segmentation using a deep convolutional neural network (CNN).

Endothelial function and its determinants in children born after maternal bariatric surgery.

Pediatr Res 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Division of Pediatric Endocrinology, Department of Pediatrics, University Hospital Brussels, Jette, Belgium.

Background: Children born from mothers who underwent bariatric surgery were found to have an improved lipid profile and lower CRP levels compared to siblings born before surgery. We hypothesized that surgery before pregnancy might also influence endothelial function in the offspring.

Methods: Blood sample analysis, blood pressure (BP) measurement, and peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT) were performed in 142 children (median age 10. Read More

The total solar irradiance during the recent solar minimum period measured by SOHO/VIRGO.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 9;11(1):7835. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Computer Science, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland.

Various space missions have measured the total solar irradiance (TSI) since 1978. Among them the experiments Precision Monitoring of Solar Variability (PREMOS) on the PICARD satellite (2010-2014) and the Variability of Irradiance and Gravity Oscillations (VIRGO) on the mission Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, which started in 1996 and is still operational. Like most TSI experiments, they employ a dual-channel approach with different exposure rates to track and correct the inevitable degradation of their radiometers. Read More

Improved prime editors enable pathogenic allele correction and cancer modelling in adult mice.

Nat Commun 2021 Apr 9;12(1):2121. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

RNA Therapeutics Institute, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA.

Prime editors (PEs) mediate genome modification without utilizing double-stranded DNA breaks or exogenous donor DNA as a template. PEs facilitate nucleotide substitutions or local insertions or deletions within the genome based on the template sequence encoded within the prime editing guide RNA (pegRNA). However, the efficacy of prime editing in adult mice has not been established. Read More

Floquet-enhanced spin swaps.

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA.

The transfer of information between quantum systems is essential for quantum communication and computation. In quantum computers, high connectivity between qubits can improve the efficiency of algorithms, assist in error correction, and enable high-fidelity readout. However, as with all quantum gates, operations to transfer information between qubits can suffer from errors associated with spurious interactions and disorder between qubits, among other things.
