Dexamethasone reduces airway epithelial Cl secretion by rapid non-genomic inhibition of KCNQ1, KCNN4 and KATP K channels.

Basolateral membrane K channels play a key role in basal and agonist stimulated Cl transport across airway epithelial cells by generating a favourable electrical driving force for Cl efflux. The K channel sub-types and molecular mechanisms of regulation by hormones and secretagoues are still poorly understood. Here we have identified the type of K channels involved in cAMP and Ca stimulated Cl secretion and uncovered a novel anti-secretory effect of dexamethasone mediated by inhibition of basolateral membra...


Two-body dissociation of CH isomers investigated by 50 keV/u Ne impact.

The fragmentation of two isomers of CH, propyne (CHCCH) and allene (CHCCH), is investigated by 50 keV/u Ne impact. Obvious isomer effects are observed by comparing the time-of-flight spectra generated from the two isomers. Six two-body fragmentation channels of CH dications are identified for each isomer. CH + CH is found to be the most favored CC bond breaking channel for both isomers, indicating that CHCCH intends to rearrange to the structure containing the CH group before fragmentation. For CH bond brea...

Voxelwise statistical methods to localize practice variation in brain tumor surgery.

During resections of brain tumors, neurosurgeons have to weigh the risk between residual tumor and damage to brain functions. Different perspectives on these risks result in practice variation. We present statistical methods to localize differences in extent of resection between institutions which should enable to reveal brain regions affected by such practice variation.

Such images represent the cutting edge of digital histology and promise to revolutionize how diseases such as cancer are studied, diagnosed, and treated. Highly multiplexed tissue images are complex, comprising 109 or more pixels, 60-plus channels, and millions of individual cells. This makes manual analysis challenging and error-...

Digital radiography as an alternative method in the evaluation of bone density in uremic rats.

Digital radiography (DRx) may provide a suitable alternative to investigate mineral and bone disorder (MBD) and loss of bone density (BD) in rodent models of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The objective of this study was to use DRx to evaluate BD in CKD rats, and to evaluate the correlation between DRx findings and serum MBD markers and bone histomorphometry.

Extraciliary roles of the ciliopathy protein JBTS17 in mitosis and neurogenesis.

JBTS17 is a major gene mutated in ciliopathies such as Joubert syndrome and oral-facial-digital syndrome type VI. Most patients with loss of function mutations in JBTS17 exhibit cerebellar vermis hypoplasia and brain stem malformation. However, some patients with JBTS17 mutations show microcephaly and abnormal gyration. We examined potential roles of JBTS17 in neurogenesis to understand the pathological mechanism of JBTS17-related cortical abnormalities.

Fundamental constraints of vessels network architecture properties revealed by reconstruction of a rat brain vasculature.

The studies of mammalian vasculature are an essential part of biomedical research, enabling the development of physiological understanding and forming the background of medical techniques and therapy. Despite the fact that the basic principles of vessel network description were established in the first quarter of the twentieth century, a digital model describing the vasculature in full accordance with experimental data has not yet been created. In the present study, we combine the determined structure desig...

This study demonstrates the preparation and functioning of an electrochemical microfluidic biochip for the detection of OA. The screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE) was modified by phosphorene-gold nanocomposite onto which an aptamer specific to OA was immobilized. BP-Au nanocomposites were synthesized by an in-situ, one-ste...

Spontaneous action potentials in retinal horizontal cells of goldfish () are dependent upon L-type Ca channels and ryanodine receptors.

Horizontal cells (HCs) are interneurons of the outer retina that undergo graded changes in membrane potential during the light response and provide feedback to photoreceptors. We characterized spontaneous Ca-based action potentials (APs) in isolated goldfish () HCs using electrophysiological and intracellular imaging techniques. Transient changes in intracellular Ca concentration ([Ca]) were observed with Fura-2, and were abolished by removal of extracellular Ca, or by inhibition of Ca channels by 50 µM Cd...

The Scientific Case for Brain Simulations.

A key element of the European Union's Human Brain Project (HBP) and other large-scale brain research projects is the simulation of large-scale model networks of neurons. Here, we argue why such simulations will likely be indispensable for bridging the scales between the neuron and system levels in the brain, and why a set of brain simulators based on neuron models at different levels of biological detail should therefore be developed. To allow for systematic refinement of candidate network models by compari...

Joint functional brain network atlas estimation and feature selection for neurological disorder diagnosis with application to autism.

Image-based brain maps, generally coined as 'intensity or image atlases', have led the field of brain mapping in health and disease for decades, while investigating a wide spectrum of neurological disorders. Estimating representative brain atlases constitute a fundamental step in several MRI-based neurological disorder mapping, diagnosis, and prognosis. However, these are strikingly lacking in the field of brain connectomics, where connectional brain atlases derived from functional MRI (fRMI) or diffusion M...
