Iron diapirs entrain silicates to the core and initiate thermochemical plumes.

Nat Commun 2018 01 4;9(1):71. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, 87131, USA.

Segregation of the iron core from rocky silicates is a massive evolutionary event in planetary accretion, yet the process of metal segregation remains obscure, due to obstacles in simulating the extreme physical properties of liquid iron and silicates at finite length scales. We present new experimental results studying gravitational instability of an emulsified liquid gallium layer, initially at rest at the interface between two glucose solutions. Metal settling coats liquid metal drops with a film of low density material. Read More

Unconventional maturation of dendritic cells induced by particles from the laminated layer of larval Echinococcus granulosus.

Infect Immun 2014 Aug 19;82(8):3164-76. Epub 2014 May 19.

Cátedra de Inmunología, Departamento de Biociencias (Facultad de Química) e Instituto de Química Biológica (Facultad de Ciencias), Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay

The larval stage of the cestode parasite Echinococcus granulosus causes hydatid disease in humans and livestock. This infection is characterized by the growth in internal organ parenchymae of fluid-filled structures (hydatids) that elicit surprisingly little inflammation in spite of their massive size and persistence. Hydatids are protected by a millimeter-thick layer of mucin-based extracellular matrix, termed the laminated layer (LL), which is thought to be a major factor determining the host response to the infection.

Differential Expression of PKD2-Associated Genes in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Genomics Inform 2012 Mar 31;10(1):16-22. Epub 2012 Mar 31.

Department of Biological Science, Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul 140-742, Korea.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is characterized by formation of multiple fluid-filled cysts that expand over time and destroy renal architecture. The proteins encoded by the PKD1 and PKD2 genes, mutations in which account for nearly all cases of ADPKD, may help guard against cystogenesis. Previously developed mouse models of PKD1 and PKD2 demonstrated an embryonic lethal phenotype and massive cyst formation in the kidney, indicating that PKD1 and PKD2 probably play important roles during normal renal tubular development.

PPAR-gamma agonist ameliorates kidney and liver disease in an orthologous rat model of human autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2011 Feb 8;300(2):F465-74. Epub 2010 Dec 8.

Education and Research Center of Animal Models for Human Diseases, Fujita Health University, Toyoake, Aichi, Japan.

In autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD), progressive enlargement of fluid-filled cysts is due to aberrant proliferation of tubule epithelial cells and transepithelial fluid secretion leading to extensive nephron loss and interstitial fibrosis. Congenital hepatic fibrosis associated with biliary cysts/dilatations is the most common extrarenal manifestation in ARPKD and can lead to massive liver enlargement. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPAR-γ), a member of the ligand-dependent nuclear receptor superfamily, is expressed in a variety of tissues, including the kidneys and liver, and plays important roles in cell proliferation, fibrosis, and inflammation.

Pkd1 inactivation induced in adulthood produces focal cystic disease.

J Am Soc Nephrol 2008 Dec 5;19(12):2351-63. Epub 2008 Sep 5.

Renal Division, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, the most common monogenetic disorder, is characterized by gradual replacement of normal renal parenchyma by fluid-filled cysts. Mutations in either PKD1 or PKD2 cause autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Pkd1(-/-) or Pkd2(-/-) mice develop rapid renal cystic disease and exhibit embryonic lethality; this supports the "two-hit" hypothesis, which proposes that a germline mutation in PKD1 (or PKD2) followed by a second somatic mutation later in life is responsible for the phenotype.
