Role of fibroblast growth factor 21 in gestational diabetes mellitus: A mini-review.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as glucose intolerance with onset or first diagnosis during pregnancy, but not to the level of being diagnostic for diabetes in a non-pregnant adult. In GDM whole-body insulin-dependent glucose disposal decreases by 40-60% which necessitates a 200-250% increase in insulin secretion to maintain normoglycemia. GDM develops when a pregnant woman does not...

Toward Rationally Designing Surface Structures of Micro- and Nanocrystallites: Role of Supersaturation.

Tailoring the surface structures of nanocrystals is an exciting research area on account of appealing surface-dependent properties in various applications. Although significant progress has been made in recent years, current synthetic approaches are mainly dependent upon trial and error because of the ambiguous roles of various influencing factors in complicated environments. Therefore, a general ...

Light-Controlled Lipid Interaction and Membrane Organization in Photolipid Bilayer Vesicles.

Controlling lateral interactions between lipid molecules in a bilayer membrane to guide membrane organization and domain formation is a key factor for studying and emulating membrane functionality in synthetic biological systems. Here, we demonstrate an approach to reversibly control lipid organization, domain formation, and membrane stiffness of phospholipid bilayer membranes using the photoswitc...

HST-MRM-MS: A Novel High-Sample-Throughput Multiple Reaction Monitoring Mass Spectrometric Method for Multiplex Absolute Quantitation of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Serum Biomarker.

Absolute quantification of clinical biomarkers by mass spectrometry (MS) has been challenged due to low sample-throughput of current multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) methods. To overcome this problem, in this work, a novel high-sample-throughput multiple reaction monitoring mass spectrometric (HST-MRM-MS) quantification approach is developed to achieve simultaneous quantification of 24 samples. ...

Global Identification of Post-Translationally Spliced Peptides with Neo-Fusion.

Post-translationally spliced peptides have recently garnered significant interest as potential targets for cancer immunotherapy and as contributors to autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, yet feasible identification methods for spliced peptides have yet to be developed. We present Neo-Fusion, a search program for discovering spliced peptides in tandem mass spectrometry data. Neo-Fusion uti...

Decentered Crowdfunded Clinical Studies-Open a New Era of Medical Research.

The Role of Narratives in the Development of Stuttering as a Problem.

Narratives are how people make sense of experiences and give meaning to their lives (Bruner, 1990). Use of narrative therapy (White, 2007) with people who stutter to facilitate the development of preferred stories (as opposed to problem-based stories) has been documented in the literature (Logan, 2013; Ryan, O'Dwyer, & Leahy, 2015). The purpose of this research was to explore the role of narrative...

The Impact of Stuttering on Development of Self-Identity, Relationships, and Quality of Life in Women Who Stutter.

The experiences of women who stutter have been underresearched. Clinicians have little guidance from the research literature on issues specific to women who stutter and are likely to have less clinical contact with this group than with men who stutter because of the higher prevalence of stuttering in men. This study explored the experiences of a small group of women who stutter with a particular f...
