Effects of dietary pectin on the profile and transport of intestinal bile acids in young pigs.

Pectin has been known to lower circulating cholesterol by interacting with bile acid (BA) metabolism. The current study was aimed to investigate intestinal BA transport at the molecular level in a pig model. Twelve young pigs (11.05 ± 0.11kg) were randomly divided into two groups and fed corn-soybean meal diets with either 5% pectin or cornstarch for 72 days. In pigs fed with pectin, total choles...

Bile micro-infarcts in cholestasis are initiated by rupture of the apical hepatocyte membrane and cause shunting of bile to sinusoidal blood.

Bile duct ligation (BDL) is an experimental procedure that mimics obstructive cholestatic disease. One of the early consequences of BDL in rodents are so-called 'bile infarcts' that correspond to Charcot-Gombault necrosis in human cholestasis. The mechanisms causing bile infarcts and their pathophysiological relevance are unclear. Therefore, intravital two-photon-based imaging of bile duct-ligated...

A rare reason in a child with feeding intolerance: Intravaginal struvite stone.

Tokgöz Y, Erdem AO, Özbey BC, Terlemez S. A rare reason in a child with feeding intolerance: Intravaginal struvite stone. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 86-88. Vaginal stones are rarely seen in childhood; they are categorized as primary and secondary whether they are a foreign object focus (nidus) or not. Urethrovaginal fistula is the most common etiological cause; other etiologies are considerably ra...

Rapid Ion Mobility Separations of Bile Acid Isomers using Cyclodextrin Adducts and Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulations.

Bile acids (BAs) constitute an important class of steroid metabolites often displaying changes associated with disease states and other health conditions. Current analyses for these structurally similar compounds are limited by a lack of sensitivity, and long separation times with often poor isomeric resolution. To overcome these challenges and provide rapid analyses for the BA isomers, we utilize...

The Relationships Between the Nasolacrimal Duct and the Anterior Wall of the Maxillary Sinus.

To examine the anatomic relationships between the lower end opening into the inferior meatus of the bony nasolacrimal duct (NLD) and the anterior wall of the maxillary sinus.

Bile salt hydrolases: Structure and function, substrate preference and inhibitor development.

The worldwide trend of limiting the use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal production creates challenges for the animal feed and feed additive industries, thus necessitating the development of effective non-antibiotic alternatives to improve animal performance. Increasing evidence has shown that the growth-promoting effect of AGPs is highly correlated with the reduced activity of bile...

Fluorescence-guided surgery for liver tumors.

In hepatobiliary surgery, fluorescence imaging enables identification of subcapsular liver tumors through accumulation of indocyanine green after preoperative intravenous injection in cancerous tissues of hepatocellular carcinoma and in noncancerous hepatic parenchyma around intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and liver metastases. Indocyanine green-fluorescence imaging can also be used for visualizin...

Oral Nanoparticles Exhibit Specific High-Efficiency Intestinal Uptake and Lymphatic Transport.

Herein, we describe a simple and promising nanoparticle oral delivery phenomenon and propose pathways for oral nanoparticle absorption from the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), combining apical sodium-dependent bile acid transporter-mediated cellular uptake and chylomicron transport pathways. This strategy is proven to employ bile-acid-conjugated, solid fluorescent probe nanoparticles (100 nm diamete...

Simultaneous treatment of parapelvic renal cysts and stones by flexible ureterorenoscopy with a novel four-step cyst localization strategy.

To assess the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of simultaneous treatment of parapelvic renal cysts and stones by flexible ureterorenoscopy with a novel four-step cyst localization strategy in selected patients.

Sensing of L-Arginine by Gut-Expressed Calcium Sensing Receptor Stimulates Gut Satiety Hormones Cholecystokinin and Glucose-Dependent Insulinotropic Peptide Secretion in Pig Model.

Nutrients regulate the secretion of gut satiety hormones, which is related to the modulation of food intake and blood glucose levels. Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is involved in regulating gut hormone secretion in response to l-amino acids and multivalent cations. Rodents are often used to investigate the effect of nutrients on these hormonal release. However, results obtained using rodent mode...

Limited Regeneration of Adult Salivary Glands after Severe Injury Involves Cellular Plasticity.

In the adult salivary glands, the origin of replacement and regenerated acinar cells remains unclear. Although many reports describe the identification of stem cells in adult salivary glands, we have shown that differentiated acinar cells can be maintained and regenerated through self-duplication. Here, we have used genetic mouse models to further investigate acinar cell replacement and regenerati...

A Bile Acid Derivative with PPARγ-Mediated Anti-inflammatory Activity.

During our search for bioactive secondary metabolites in the jellyfish-derived fungus Penicillium chrysogenum J08NF-4, several bile acid derivatives (2-6) were isolated along with a new steroidal artifact (1). An in vitro anti-inflammatory assay showed that pretreatment with 1 suppressed NO production and the gene expressions of the pro-inflammatory mediators iNOS and TNF-α in LPS-induced RAW 264...

An aberrantly spliced isoform of anterior gradient-2, AGR2vH promotes migration and invasion of cholangiocarcinoma cell.

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a cancer of bile duct, considered to be an incurable and lethal cancer. High mortality rate of CCA patients is underlined by cancer metastasis, an ability of the cancer cells that spread to secondary organs. Recently, we have identified Anterior Gradient-2 (AGR2), from a pair of non-metastatic/metastatic cell lines (KKU-213/KKU-213L5), as a gene that is highly and speci...

Persistent Müllerian Duct Syndrome in a German Shepherd Dog.

In mammals, the regression of the müllerian ducts is regulated by the action of the AMH hormone which is produced by testes during embryonic development. The action of this hormone is mediated by the only known receptor AMHR2. Mutations occurring in the AHM hormone and/or in the AMHR2 receptor gene cause the lack of regression of müllerian ducts, which may therefore persist even in male embryos ...

Endoscopic biliary stenting: indications, choice of stents, and results: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Clinical Guideline - Updated October 2017.

ESGE recommends against routine preoperative biliary drainage in patients with malignant extrahepatic biliary obstruction; preoperative biliary drainage should be reserved for patients with cholangitis, severe symptomatic jaundice (e. g., intense pruritus), or delayed surgery, or for before neoadjuvant chemotherapy in jaundiced patients. Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence. ESGE rec...
