An excised leaf assay to measure acquisition of "Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus" by psyllids associated with citrus Huanglongbing disease.

Phytopathology 2021 May 14. Epub 2021 May 14.

USDA Agricultural Research Service, 17123, Emerging Pests and Pathogens Research Unit, 538 Tower Road, Ithaca, New York, United States, 14853.

Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening disease, is the most serious disease of citrus worldwide and is associated with plant infection by "Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus" (CLas) and other Liberibacter species. CLas is transmitted by Diaphorina citri, the Asian citrus psyllid, in a circulative propagative manner. Circulative propagative transmission is a complex process comprising at least three steps: movement of the pathogen into vector tissues, translocation and replication of the pathogen within the vector host, and pathogen inoculation of a new host by the vector.

Zebrafish Cancer Predisposition Models.

Front Cell Dev Biol 2021 27;9:660069. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Cancer predisposition syndromes are rare, typically monogenic disorders that result from germline mutations that increase the likelihood of developing cancer. Although these disorders are individually rare, resulting cancers collectively represent 5-10% of all malignancies. In addition to a greater incidence of cancer, affected individuals have an earlier tumor onset and are frequently subjected to long-term multi-modal cancer screening protocols for earlier detection and initiation of treatment.

Strengthening the Case for Cluster Set Resistance Training in Aged and Clinical Settings: Emerging Evidence, Proposed Benefits and Suggestions.

Sports Med 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Exercise Science, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, USA.

Resistance training (RT) is a fundamental component of exercise prescription aimed at improving overall health and function. RT techniques such as cluster set (CS) configurations, characterized by additional short intra-set or inter-repetition rest intervals, have been shown to maintain acute muscular force, velocity, and 'power' outputs across a RT session, and facilitate positive longer-term neuromuscular adaptations. However, to date CS have mainly been explored from a human performance perspective despite potential for application in health and clinical exercise settings. Read More

Long-Term Care of the Pediatric Kidney Transplant Recipient.

Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Pediatrics, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Pediatric kidney transplant recipients are distinguished from adult recipients by the need for many decades of graft function, the potential effect of CKD on neurodevelopment, and the changing immune environment of a developing human. The entire life of an individual who receives a transplant as a child is colored by their status as a transplant recipient. Not only must these young recipients negotiate all of the usual challenges of emerging adulthood (transition from school to work, romantic relationships, achieving independence from parents), but they must learn to manage a life-threatening medical condition independently.

Characterize, Optimize, and Harmonize: Caring for Older Adults With Hematologic Malignancies.

Am Soc Clin Oncol Educ Book 2021 Mar;41:1-9

Department of Hematology and Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation, City of Hope, Duarte, CA.

With the aging of the population, the number of older adults with hematologic malignancies is growing, and treatment paradigms for these patients are rapidly evolving. Use of allogeneic stem cell transplant has been expanding to include septuagenarians but remains a potentially morbid procedure, creating an opportunity for a geriatric-focused evaluation to improve assessment of the individual's risk in undergoing the procedure. Although age alone should not be the sole determinant for transplant eligibility, geriatric assessment often identifies vulnerabilities that are not captured in assessing performance status and comorbidities alone.

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound in pediatric interventional radiology.

Pediatr Radiol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Radiology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, 3401 Civic Center Blvd., Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

There is growing interest in the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in diagnostic and interventional radiology. CEUS applications in interventional radiology are performed with intravascular or intracavitary administration of microbubble-based US contrast agents to allow for real-time evaluation of their distribution within the vascular bed or in body cavities, respectively, providing additional information beyond gray-scale US alone. The most common interventional-radiology-related CEUS applications in children have been extrapolated from those in adults, and they include the use of CEUS to guide lesion biopsy and to confirm drain placement in pleural effusions and intra-abdominal fluid collections.

Preserved glycemic control and baroreflex efficacy in young adult hypertensive female obese Zucker rats.

Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Physiology and Anatomy, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth, TX, United Statesgrid.266871.c.

Obese Zucker rats (OZRs) develop hypertension and hyperinsulinemia by 3 months of age. Male OZRs also have diminished baroreflex-mediated activation of nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) and bradycardia, which are improved by correcting their hyperglycemia. Conversely, 3-month-old female OZRs and lean Zucker rats (LZRs) have equivalent baroreflex-mediated bradycardia that is impaired in 6-month-old OZRs. Read More

Cross-ecosystem fluxes of pesticides from prairie wetlands mediated by aquatic insect emergence: implications for terrestrial insectivores.

Environ Toxicol Chem 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Fort Collins, CO, 80526, USA.

Contaminants alter the quantity and quality of insect prey available to terrestrial insectivores. In agricultural regions, the quantity of aquatic insects emerging from freshwaters can be impacted by insecticides originating from surrounding croplands. We hypothesized that, in such regions, adult aquatic insects could also act as important vectors of pesticide transfer to terrestrial food webs. Read More

A Prospective Study of Predictors and Consequences of Hooking Up for Sexual Minority Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA.

Hooking up, which refers to a sexual encounter (ranging from kissing to penetrative sex) between individuals who are not in a committed relationship, is an increasingly normative form of sexual exploration among emerging adults. Past research has focused on hookups within a heteronormative context, and some of this work has examined hookups as a way to cope with distress. Building on this work, we examined the role of hookups as a means for lesbian and bisexual women to cope with minority stress through increasing connection and engagement with the LGBTQ (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer or questioning) community.

XPO1 inhibition with selinexor synergizes with proteasome inhibition in neuroblastoma by targeting nuclear export of IkB.

Transl Oncol 2021 May 8;14(8):101114. Epub 2021 May 8.

Department of Genetics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 1300 Morris Park Avenue Ullmann 813 Bronx, NY 10461, United States; Department of Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, United States.

Across many cancer types in adults, upregulation of the nuclear-to-cytoplasmic transport protein Exportin-1 (XPO1) correlates with poor outcome and responsiveness to selinexor, an FDA-approved XPO1 inhibitor. Similar data are emerging in childhood cancers, for which selinexor is being evaluated in early phase clinical studies. Using proteomic profiling of primary tumor material from patients with high-risk neuroblastoma, as well as gene expression profiling from independent cohorts, we have demonstrated that XPO1 overexpression correlates with poor patient prognosis.
