Evolution of milk oligosaccharides: Origin and selectivity of the ratio of milk oligosaccharides to lactose among mammals.

Biochim Biophys Acta Gen Subj 2021 Sep 15:130012. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

School of Molecular Bioscience, The University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW 2006, Australia.

Background: The carbohydrate fraction of mammalian milk is constituted of lactose and oligosaccharides, most of which contain a lactose unit at their reducing ends. Although lactose is the predominant saccharide in the milk of most eutherians, oligosaccharides significantly predominate over lactose in the milk of monotremes and marsupials.

Scope Of Review: This review describes the most likely process by which lactose and milk oligosaccharides were acquired during the evolution of mammals and the mechanisms by which these saccharides are digested and absorbed by the suckling neonates. Read More

A machine learning approach to determine the prognosis of patients with Class III malocclusion.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Orthodontics, Adams School of Dentistry, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC. Electronic address:

Introduction: The conundrum of determining how to treat a patient with Class III malocclusion is significant, creating a burden on the patient and challenging the orthodontist. The objective of this study was to employ a statistical prediction model derived from our previous cephalometric data on 5 predominant subtypes of skeletal Class III malocclusion to test the hypothesis that Class III subtypes are associated with treatment modalities (eg, surgical vs nonsurgical) and treatment outcome.

Methods: Pretreatment lateral cephalometric records of 148 patients were digitized for 67 cephalometric variables, and measurements were applied to a mathematical equation to assign a Class III subtype. Read More

Choline acts during preimplantation development of the bovine embryo to program postnatal growth and alter muscle DNA methylation.

FASEB J 2021 Oct;35(10):e21926

Department of Animal Sciences and D.H. Barron Reproductive and Perinatal Biology Research Program, and Genetics Institute, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, USA.

The preimplantation period of embryonic development can be a key window for programming of postnatal development because extensive epigenetic remodeling occurs during this time. It was hypothesized that modification of one-carbon metabolism of the bovine embryo by addition of the methyl-donor choline to culture medium would change postnatal phenotype through epigenetic modification. Embryos produced in vitro were cultured with 1. Read More

Reappraisal of the historical myopia epidemic in native Arctic communities.

Ophthalmic Physiol Opt 2021 Sep 17. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Dr Iribarren Eye Consultants, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Purpose: This study was developed to explain the extraordinary rise in myopia prevalence beginning after 1950 in Indigenous Arctic communities considering recent findings about the risk factors for school myopia development. Myopia prevalence changed drastically from a historical low of less than 3% to more than 50% in new generations of young adults following the Second World War. At that time, this increase was attributed to concurrent alterations in the environment and way of life which occurred in an aggressive programme of de-culturalization and re-acculturation through residential school programmes that introduced mental, emotional and physical stressors.

Electropolymerized 1D Growth Coordination Polymer for Hybrid Electrochromic Aqueous Zinc Battery.

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2021 Sep 17:e2101944. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

School of Materials Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, 639798, Singapore.

Organic materials are always viewed as promising electrochromic (EC) materials due to their synthetic versatility, color tunability, ready processability, and derivability from sustainable feedstocks. Most organic materials, however, are prone to undesirable redox side reactions in the presence of oxygen and water. As such, redox-active organic layers are often used in tandem with organic electrolytes to preserve their electrochemical stability. Read More

State Key Laboratory for Conservation and Utilization of Bio-Resources in Yunnan, Yunnan Agricultural University, Kunming, China.

Fungi are ubiquitous in nature; that is, they are present everywhere on the planet; understanding the active state and functional capacity of airborne microbes associated with health of human, animal, and plant is critical for biosafety management. Here, we firstly and directly proved that there were about 40% active fungi in the air rRNA amplicon sequencing and imaging flow cytometry simultaneously. Amplicon sequencing analysis showed differences between structures of active and total fungal community; Ascomycota were dominant in the active community, while Basidiomycota have low transcriptional activity across all samples.
