Abstract: Cystic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) refers to an indolent version of RCC composed predominantly of cysts, and it is associated with good prognosis. We showed the FDG PET/CT findings in a patient with multiple hypermetabolic bone metastases presenting with pain in the left shoulder and upper abdomen, who was later found to have cystic RCC. FDG PET/CT demonstrated hypermetabolic bone lesions and slight thickening of the renal cyst wall with light metabolism. Read More

Lipopolysaccharide From Increases Glutamate-Induced Disturbances of Calcium Homeostasis, the Functional State of Mitochondria, and the Death of Cultured Cortical Neurons.

Front Mol Neurosci 2021 5;14:811171. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Laboratory of Neurobiology, "National Medical Research Center of Children's Health", Russian Ministry of Health, Moscow, Russia.

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a fragment of the bacterial cell wall, specifically interacting with protein complexes on the cell surface, can induce the production of pro-inflammatory and apoptotic signaling molecules, leading to the damage and death of brain cells. Similar effects have been noted in stroke and traumatic brain injury, when the leading factor of death is glutamate (Glu) excitotoxicity too. But being an amphiphilic molecule with a significant hydrophobic moiety and a large hydrophilic region, LPS can also non-specifically bind to the plasma membrane, altering its properties. Read More
