Neural cell adhesion molecule is required for ventricular conduction system development.

Development 2021 Jun 7;148(11). Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, NY 10016, USA.

The most distal portion of the ventricular conduction system (VCS) contains cardiac Purkinje cells (PCs), which are essential for synchronous activation of the ventricular myocardium. Contactin-2 (CNTN2), a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily of cell adhesion molecules (IgSF-CAMs), was previously identified as a marker of the VCS. Through differential transcriptional profiling, we discovered two additional highly enriched IgSF-CAMs in the VCS: NCAM-1 and ALCAM. Read More

Ovarian epithelioid angiosarcoma complicating pregnancy: a case report and review of the literature.

J Int Med Res 2021 May;49(5):3000605211019641

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Xiangya Hospital Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, China.

Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a rare and highly aggressive soft tissue angiosarcoma most commonly arising in the deep soft tissues. Given that abundant vascular cavities anastomose with each other, most angiosarcomas prone to metastasis recur quickly, and the overall prognosis is poor. We report a 25-year-old woman at 24 weeks' gestation who presented with a 1-month history of abdominal distension. Read More

Use of wide-field optical fluorescence for visualization of oral biofilm in a patient with peri-implant mucositis: a new approach.

Einstein (Sao Paulo) 2021 24;19:eRC5638. Epub 2021 May 24.

Universidade Federal da São João del-Rei, Divinópolis, MG, Brazil.

Peri-implant diseases, caused by bacteria from biofilm related to dental implants, are one of the main causes of late loss of implants. In this sense, peri-implant diseases are divided into peri-implant mucositis, when it affects only the soft tissues, and peri-implantitis, when there is a bone involvement, which can lead to the failure of dental implant therapy. Thus, biofilm removal is essential for peri-implant health, allowing long-term success in implant therapy. Read More

Using Flow Cytometry to Detect and Quantitate Altered Blood Formation in the Developing Zebrafish.

J Vis Exp 2021 04 29(170). Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, Chico;

The diversity of cell lineages that comprise mature blood in vertebrate animals arise from the differentiation of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs). This is a critical process that occurs throughout the lifespan of organisms, and disruption of the molecular pathways involved during embryogenesis can have catastrophic long-term consequences. For a multitude of reasons, zebrafish (Danio rerio) has become a model organism to study hematopoiesis. Read More

Vacuolar H(+)-ATPase is not restricted to clear cells of the epididymal epithelium in cattle.

J Anim Sci Technol 2021 Mar 31;63(2):262-271. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Department of Animal Resources Science, Kongju National University, Yesan 32439, Korea.

Communication among epididymal epithelial cells creates the best luminal condition where spermatozoa mature, transport and are stored. Vacuolar ATPase (V-ATPase) and cytokeratin 5 (KRT5) have been used as signal indicators for clear and basal cells of the epididymal epithelium, respectively, in mice, rats, bats, and pigs; however, these two markers have not yet been described in the epididymis of bulls. Here, we examined the presence and distribution of the B1 subunit of V-ATPase (B1-VATPase) and KRT5 in the distinct regions of adult bovine epididymides, specifically, the caput, corpus, and cauda.

Evaluation of mitochondria in mouse oocytes following cisplatin exposure.

J Ovarian Res 2021 May 10;14(1):65. Epub 2021 May 10.

Ovarian Biology Laboratory, Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Background: Cisplatin is a platinum-based chemotherapeutic that damages genomic DNA leading to cell death. It also damages mitochondrial DNA and induces high levels of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mtROS), further sensitising cells to apoptosis. Notably, immature oocytes are particularly vulnerable to cisplatin treatment, a common side effect of which is depletion of the primordial follicle reserve, leading to infertility and early menopause.

Department of Botany, Palacký University, Šlechtitelů 27, 783 71 Olomouc, Czech Republic.

In angiosperms, the mature seed consists of embryo, endosperm, and a maternal plant-derived seed coat (SC). The SC plays a role in seed filling, protects the embryo, mediates dormancy and germination, and facilitates the dispersal of seeds. SC properties have been modified during the domestication process, resulting in the removal of dormancy, mediated by SC impermeability. Read More
