Role of intracellular Ca stores for an impairment of visual processing in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.

Besides deficits in memory and cognition, impaired visual processing is common for Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and mouse models of AD but underlying mechanisms still remain unclear. Using in vivo Ca imaging of the mouse primary visual cortex (V1) we tested whether such impairment is caused by neuronal hyperactivity, an emerging functional hallmark of AD. Profound neuronal hyperactivity was indeed found in V1 of APP/PS1 and even of PS1 mice, presenting neither with plaque accumulation nor with neuroinf...

Smad7 ameliorates TGFβ-mediated skin inflammation and associated wound healing defects but not the susceptibility to experimental skin carcinogenesis.

We assessed roles of Smad7 in skin inflammation and wound healing using genetic and pharmacological approaches. In K5.TGFβ1/K5.Smad7 bigenic (double transgenic) mice, Smad7 transgene expression reversed TGFβ1 transgene-induced inflammation, fibrosis and subsequent epidermal hyperplasia, and molecularly abolished TGFβ and NF-κB activation. Next, we produced recombinant human Smad7 protein with a Tat-tag (Tat-Smad7) that rapidly enters cells. Subcutaneous injection of Tat-Smad7 attenuated infiltration of ...

Epithelial Folliculin Enhances Airway Inflammation in Aspirin-Exacerbated Respiratory Disease.

Clinical features of aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) are characterized by overproduction of cysteinyl leukotrienes (LT) and eosinophil activation, in which epithelial cells contribute to eosinophilic airway inflammation. Folliculin (FLCN) helps maintain the integrity of epithelial barrier, but little is known about FLCN in AERD.

Pulmonary influenza A virus infection leads to suppression of the innate immune response to dermal injury.

The innate immune system is responsible for many important functions in the body including responding to infection, clearing cancerous cells, healing wounds, and removing foreign substances. Although many of these functions happen simultaneously in life, most laboratory studies of the innate immune response focus on one activity. How the innate immune system responds to concurrent insults in different parts of the body is not well understood. This study explores the impact of a lung infection on the cutaneo...

The effects of working memory load on visual awareness and its electrophysiological correlates.

Consciousness and working memory (WM) have been thought to be closely related, but their exact relationship has remained unclear. The present study focused on the question whether visual awareness, the subjective experience of seeing, depends on resources of WM. Three dual-task experiments were run. The participants were asked to report their awareness of a low-contrast target stimulus while their WM was loaded by a requirement to concurrently maintain verbal information (Experiment 1) or visuo-spatial info...

Regulation of Connexin 43 Expression in Human Gingival Fibroblasts.

Abundance of connexin 43 (Cx43), a transmembrane protein that forms hemichannels (HCs) and gap junctions (GJs), is dynamically regulated in human gingival fibroblasts (GFBLs) during wound healing. This may be important for fast and scarless gingival wound healing as Cx43 is involved in key cell functions important during this process. Our aim was to uncover the factors that regulate Cx43 expression and abundance in GFBLs. We hypothesized that cytokines and growth factors released during wound healing coordi...

Topical anti-inflammatory activity of palmitoleic acid improves wound healing.

This study investigated the effects of palmitoleic acid on different phases of the healing process. Macroscopic analyses were performed on wounds in rats with or without palmitoleic acid treatment, and the results showed that palmitoleic acid directly hastened wound closure. The topical treatment of wounds with palmitoleic acid resulted in smaller wounds than those observed in the control group. The anti-inflammatory activity of palmitoleic acid may be responsible for healing, especially in the stages of gr...

Preparation of self-regulating/anti-adhesive hydrogels and their ability to promote healing in burn wounds.

Few burn dressings can self-regulate the optimal humidity levels that are required for wound healing, while also providing good anti-adhesive properties to prevent damage that can occur when wound dressings are changed. Consequently, a water-soluble carboxymethylcellulose sodium/sodium alginate/chitosan (CMC-Na/SA/CS) composite hydrogel has been developed as a potential burn wound dressing, with orthogonal testing revealing an optimal ratio of CMC-Na, SA, and CS as 2, 3, and 1 wt % for hydrogel preparation,...

Identification and Quantification of the Angiofibrotic Switch in Neovascular AMD.

Inducing synesthesia in non-synesthetes: Short-term visual deprivation facilitates auditory-evoked visual percepts.

Sounds can modulate activity in visual cortex, facilitating the detection of visual targets. However, these sound-driven modulations are not thought to evoke conscious visual percepts in the general population. In individuals with synesthesia, however, multisensory interactions do lead to qualitatively different experiences such as sounds evoking flashes of light. Why, if multisensory interactions are present in all individuals, do only synesthetes experience abnormal qualia? Competing models differ in the ...
