N.M. Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Kosygin St. 4, Moscow 119334, Russia. Electronic address:

Spectral-fluorescent and photochemical properties (photoisomerization and generation of the triplet state) of meso-substituted cationic carbocyanine dyes, 3,3'-di-(β-hydroxyethyl)-5,5'-dimethoxy-9-ethylthiacarbocyanine iodide (K1) and 3,3'-di-(β-hydroxyethyl)-9-methylthiacarbocyanine iodide (K2), have been studied in solutions and in the presence of DNA. In solutions, on passing from acetonitrile to dioxane, a growth of fluorescence of the dyes is observed due to a shift of the equilibrium of cis/trans isomers toward the fluorescent trans-isomer. Upon flash photolysis of dye solutions in dioxane, the formation and subsequent decay of the cis-photoisomers of the dyes are observed. Read More

Alleviation of C⋅C Mismatches in DNA by the Fpg Protein.

Front Microbiol 2021 30;12:608839. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Department of Chemistry, Bioscience and Environmental Technology, Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Stavanger, Stavanger, Norway.

DNA polymerase III mis-insertion may, where not corrected by its 3'→ 5' exonuclease or the mismatch repair (MMR) function, result in all possible non-cognate base pairs in DNA generating base substitutions. The most thermodynamically unstable base pair, the cytosine (C)⋅C mismatch, destabilizes adjacent base pairs, is resistant to correction by MMR in , and its repair mechanism remains elusive. We present here evidence that C⋅C mismatch can be processed by base excision repair initiated by the formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase (Fpg) protein. Read More

Usefulness of a 3D-printing air sampler for capturing live airborne bacteria and exploring the environmental factors that can influence bacterial dynamics.

Res Microbiol 2021 Jul 14:103864. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University, Kita 12 Nishi 5, Kita-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido 060-0812, Japan. Electronic address:

We created a handmade 3D-printed air sampler to effectively collect live airborne bacteria, and determined which environmental factors influenced the bacteria. Bacterial colony forming units (CFUs) in the air samples (n=37) were monitored by recording the environmental changes occurring over time, then determining the presence/absence of correlations among such changes. The bacterial CFUs changed sharply and were significantly correlated with the DNA concentrations, indicating that the captured bacteria made up most of the airborne bacteria. Read More

Perylene-Cy3 FRET System to Analyze Photoactive DNA Structures.

Chemistry 2021 Jul 16. Epub 2021 Jul 16.

Nagoya University: Nagoya Daigaku, Department of Biomolecular Engineering, JAPAN.

We report a new FRET system for structural analyses of DNA duplexes using perylene and Cy3 as donor and acceptor, respectively, linked at the termini of a DNA duplex via D-threoninol. Experimentally obtained FRET efficiencies were in good agreement with theoretical values calculated based on canonical B-form DNA. Due to the relatively long Förster radius, this system can be used to analyze large DNA structures, and duplexes containing photo-reactive molecules can be analyzed since perylene can be excited with visible light.

Infections and Cancer Biology, International Agency for Research on Cancer/World Health Organization.

Cutaneous human papillomavirus (cuHPV) infections may be novel targets for skin cancer prevention and treatment, but critical information regarding the development of virus-positive skin cancers following cuHPV infection has been lacking. In this study, baseline cuHPV infection was measured by serology and viral DNA detection in eyebrow hairs (EBH) and forearm skin swabs (SSW) among 1,008 individuals undergoing routine skin cancer screening exams and followed for incidence of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cuSCC). Baseline beta-HPV detection, particularly in SSW, significantly predicted cuSCC (Hazard Ratio [HR]=4. Read More

High-molecular weight DNA extraction, clean-up and size selection for long-read sequencing.

PLoS One 2021 15;16(7):e0253830. Epub 2021 Jul 15.

Research School of Biology, Australian National University, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Rapid advancements in long-read sequencing technologies have transformed read lengths from bps to Mbps, which has enabled chromosome-scale genome assemblies. However, read lengths are now becoming limited by the extraction of pure high-molecular weight DNA suitable for long-read sequencing, which is particularly challenging in plants and fungi. To overcome this, we present a protocol collection; high-molecular weight DNA extraction, clean-up and size selection for long-read sequencing. Read More
