Identification of extracellular nanoparticle subsets by nuclear magnetic resonance.

Chem Sci 2021 Apr 29;12(24):8311-8319. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

NMR Research Unit, University of Oulu Finland

Exosomes are a subset of secreted lipid envelope-encapsulated extracellular vesicles (EVs) of 50-150 nm diameter that can transfer cargo from donor to acceptor cells. In the current purification protocols of exosomes, many smaller and larger nanoparticles such as lipoproteins, exomers and microvesicles are typically co-isolated as well.

Impact of various air mass types on cloud condensation nuclei concentrations along coastal southeast Florida.

Atmos Environ (1994) 2021 Jun 29;254. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA.

Coastal southeast Florida experiences a wide range of aerosol conditions, including African dust, biomass burning (BB) aerosols, as well as sea salt and other locally-emitted aerosols. These aerosols are important sources of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), which play an essential role in governing cloud radiative properties. As marine environments dominate the surface of Earth, CCN characteristics in coastal southeast Florida have broad implications for other regions with the added feature that this site is perturbed by both natural and anthropogenic emissions.

Therapeutic uses of post-partum tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cell secretome.

Indian J Med Res 2020 12;152(6):541-552

Department of Zoology & Environment Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Colombo, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Human post-partum tissue mesenchymal stromal cells (hPPT-MSCs) are widely used in research to investigate their differentiation capabilities and therapeutic effects as potential agents in cell-based therapy. This is ascribed to the advantages offered by the use of MSCs isolated from hPPT over other MSC sources. A paradigm shift in related research is evident that focuses on the secretome of the human MSCs (hMSCs), as therapeutic effects of hMSCs are attributed more so to their secreted growth factors, cytokines and chemokines and to the extracellular vesicles (EVs), all of which are components of the hMSC secretome.

Seung-Mok Lee

PeerJ Comput Sci 2021 27;7:e567. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Automotive System Engineering, Keimyung University, Daegu, South Korea.

As the necessity of wireless charging to support the popularization of electric vehicles (EVs) emerges, the development of a wireless power transfer (WPT) system for EV wireless charging is rapidly progressing. The WPT system requires alignment between the transmitter coils installed on the parking lot floor and the receiver coils in the vehicle. To automatically align the two sets of coils, the WPT system needs a localization technology that can precisely estimate the vehicle's pose in real time. Read More

Cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunction: is endothelial dysfunction at the heart of the matter?

Clin Sci (Lond) 2021 Jun;135(12):1487-1503

Toronto General Hospital Research Institute, University Health Network, Toronto, Canada.

Significant improvements in cancer survival have brought to light unintended long-term adverse cardiovascular effects associated with cancer treatment. Although capable of manifesting a broad range of cardiovascular complications, cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunction (CTRCD) remains particularly common among the mainstay anthracycline-based and human epidermal growth factor receptor-targeted therapies. Unfortunately, the early asymptomatic stages of CTRCD are difficult to detect by cardiac imaging alone, and the initiating mechanisms remain incompletely understood. Read More

Extracellular vesicle-based therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Brain Circ 2021 Jan-Mar;7(1):23-28. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Department of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair, Morsani College of Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) stands as a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the rapid progression of motor neuron loss in the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, treatment options for ALS are limited, and therefore, novel therapies that prevent further motor neuron degeneration are of dire need. In ALS, the infiltration of pathological elements from the blood to the central nervous system (CNS) compartment that spur motor neuron damage may be prevented via restoration of the impaired blood-CNS-barrier.

Optimal Energy Management Framework for Truck-Mounted Mobile Charging Stations Considering Power Distribution System Operating Conditions.

Sensors (Basel) 2021 Apr 15;21(8). Epub 2021 Apr 15.

School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Chung-Ang University, 84 Heukseok-ro, Dongjak-gu, Seoul 156-756, Korea.

A high charging demand from many electric vehicles (EVs) at a fixed charging station (FCS) with a limited number of charging poles can increase the waiting time of EVs and yield an abnormal power grid condition. To resolve these challenges, this paper presents an optimization framework in which a mobile charging station (MCS) is dispatched to the overloaded FCS to reduce the number of waiting EVs while maintaining normal power grid operation. Compared to existing MCS scheduling methods that do not consider actual power distribution system operations, the proposed framework takes into account the (i) active/reactive power flow and consumption of EVs, (ii) reactive power capability of MCS, and (iii) voltage quality in power distribution systems.

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, Boston University Medical Campus 72 E Concord St. R304. Boston, MA 02118, USA.

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) refer to a heterogenous population of membrane-bound vesicles that are released by cells under physiological and pathological conditions. The detection of EVs in the majority of the bodily fluids, coupled with their diverse cargo comprising of DNA, RNA, lipids, and proteins, have led to the accumulated interests in leveraging these nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. In particular, emerging studies have identified enhanced levels of a wide range of specific subclasses of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) in EVs, thereby suggesting the existence of highly selective and regulated molecular processes governing the sorting of these RNAs into EVs.
