Prevalence and characteristics of tobacco purchases in convenience stores: results of a postpurchase intercept survey in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Arguments regarding the importance of tobacco to convenience stores could impede the adoption of tobacco retail reduction policies. Although trade associations argue tobacco constitutes two-thirds of convenience store sales and drives footfall, few studies have tested these claims. We therefore examined the prevalence and characteristics of tobacco purchases at convenience stores in Dunedin, New Zealand.


Healthy Retail as a Strategy for Improving Food Security and the Built Environment in San Francisco.

In low-income neighborhoods without supermarkets, lack of healthy food access often is exacerbated by the saturation of small corner stores with tobacco and unhealthy foods and beverages. We describe a municipal healthy retail program in San Francisco, California, focusing on the role of a local coalition in program implementation and outcomes in the city's low income Tenderloin neighborhood. By incentivizing selected corner stores to become healthy retailers, and through community engagement and cross-sect...

Implementation and Effectiveness of an Online Responsible Vendor Training Program for Recreational Marijuana Stores in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington State.

Six US states have implemented retail sales of recreational marijuana. Training in responsible sales practices has been effective in the alcohol market. An online responsible marijuana vendor (RMV) training was produced and implemented with stores in a randomized trial.


Phospholamban regulates nuclear Ca stores and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate mediated nuclear Ca cycling in cardiomyocytes.

Phospholamban (PLB) is the key regulator of the cardiac Ca pump (SERCA2a)-mediated sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca stores. We recently reported that PLB is highly concentrated in the nuclear envelope (NE) from where it can modulate perinuclear Ca handling of the cardiomyocytes (CMs). Since inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP) receptor (IPR) mediates nuclear Ca release, we examined whether the nuclear pool of PLB regulates IP-induced nuclear Ca handling.

Features, Behavioral Change Techniques, and Quality of the Most Popular Mobile Apps to Measure Physical Activity: Systematic Search in App Stores.

It is estimated that 23% of adults and 55% of older adults do not meet the recommended levels of physical activity. Thus, improving the levels of physical activity is of paramount importance, but it requires the use of low-cost resources that facilitate universal access without depleting the health system. The high number of apps available constitutes an opportunity, but it also makes it quite difficult for the layperson to select the most appropriate app. Furthermore, the information available in the app s...

Calcium stores regulate excitability in cultured rat hippocampal neurons.

Extracellular calcium ions support synaptic activity, but also reduce excitability of central neurons. In the present study, the effect of calcium on excitability was explored in cultured hippocampal neurons. CaCl injected by pressure in the vicinity of a neuron that is bathed only in MgCl as the main divalent cation, caused a depolarizing shift in action potential threshold and a reduction in excitability. This effect was not seen if the intracellular milieu consisted of Cs instead of K-gluconate as the ma...

Familial Alzheimer's disease-linked presenilin mutants and intracellular Ca handling: A single-organelle, FRET-based analysis.

An imbalance in Ca homeostasis represents an early event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Presenilin-1 and -2 (PS1 and PS2) mutations, the major cause of familial AD (FAD), have been extensively associated with alterations in different Ca signaling pathways, in particular those handled by storage compartments. However, FAD-PSs effect on organelles Ca content is still debated and the mechanism of action of mutant proteins is unclear. To fulfil the need of a direct investigation of intracellul...

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...

What the SOF Community Needs to Know About Dietary Supplements.

Dietary supplement (DS) use by military members and Special Operations Forces (SOF), in particular, is high. The "sports nutrition" market is expected to be one of the fastest growing segments because a "performance edge" is certainly desirable within the military. DS products are readily available in retail stores on military bases, over the Internet, and in niche stores near military bases. Thus, use of some DSs raises a number of unique concerns, particularly considering the potential for interactions am...

Aortic treatment of native infection by reconstruction with the Omniflow II biologic prosthesis.

Aortic infection is a challenging condition. Fortunately, surgical revision of infected aorta with in situ reconstruction can provide long-term cure. The material for aortic repair remains an area of debate. The Omniflow II (LeMaitre Vascular, Burlington, Mass) prosthesis is a biosynthetic graft made to resist long-term degeneration and allows growth of host tissue with reduction of the risk of arterial infection. It has already been used for peripheral bypass with very low infection rates. Herein, we descr...

The histone methyltransferase G9a regulates tolerance to oxidative stress-induced energy consumption.

Stress responses are crucial processes that require activation of genetic programs that protect from the stressor. Stress responses are also energy consuming and can thus be deleterious to the organism. The mechanisms coordinating energy consumption during stress response in multicellular organisms are not well understood. Here, we show that loss of the epigenetic regulator G9a in Drosophila causes a shift in the transcriptional and metabolic responses to oxidative stress (OS) that leads to decreased surviv...

Evaluating the impact of a healthy corner store initiative on food access domains.

Healthy Corner Store Initiatives (HCSIs) are one food access strategy that aims to improve food environments by supporting local food stores in expanding their healthy offerings. This study presents the evaluation results from one such HCSI. Fresh Foods Here evaluated its network of eight stores in Columbus, Ohio between November 2013 and August 2014. Data from invoices, inventories, rapid market assessments, and customers surveys were analyzed for evidence of impact on the service delivery and personal dom...

Ascorbate attenuates red light mediated vasodilation: Potential role of S-nitrosothiols.

There is significant therapeutic advantage of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) independent nitric oxide (NO) production in maladies where endothelium, and thereby NOS, is dysfunctional. Electromagnetic radiation in the red and near infrared region has been shown to stimulate NOS-independent but NO-dependent vasodilation, and thereby has significant therapeutic potential. We have recently shown that red light induces acute vasodilatation in the pre-constricted murine facial artery via the release of an endotheliu...

Small adipose stores in cystic fibrosis mice are characterized by reduced cell volume, not cell number.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a lethal genetic disorder that affects many organ systems of the body, including various endocrine and exocrine tissues. Health and survival positively associate with body mass and as a consequence, CF clinical care includes high-fat, high-calorie diets to maintain and increase adipose tissue stores. Such strategies have been implemented without a clear understanding of the cause and effect relationship between body mass and patients' health. Here, we use CF mouse models, which displ...

Normothermic ex vivo liver perfusion: platform for liver graft assessment and therapeutic modification.

Liver transplantation as a treatment for end stage liver failure remains limited in the United States by the number and quality of donor allografts. Static cold storage, the current standard of care for organ storage prior to transplantation, offers no method for assessment or therapeutic modification. Cold ischemia and its attendant hypoxia deplete cellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) stores, promote cellular damage, and degrade overall organ quality. Normothermic ex vivo liver perfusion (NEVLP) offers th...

Fatty Acids and Fat-Soluble Vitamins in Breast Milk: Physiological Significance and Factors Affecting Their Concentrations.

Fatty acids (FAs) and fat-soluble vitamins are vital components of the human milk lipid fraction. About two-thirds of the human milk FA fraction consist of oleic, linoleic, and palmitic FAs, but the precise composition depends on maternal geography, diet, and genetics. Mothers with high fish consumption have more docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and other ω-3 FAs in their milk, while mothers with high dairy consumption have more branched-chain FAs in their milk. Vitamins A and E are the most common fat-soluble v...

Energy (Im-)Balance in Frugivorous Lemurs in Southern Madagascar: A Preliminary Study in Lemur catta and Eulemur rufifrons × collaris.

The reproductive cycle of several lemur species is synchronized by photoperiodic changes and it is attuned to the seasonal fluctuations in food supply. Nevertheless, irregular periods of food shortage occur in Madagascar, which can result in a negative energy balance and reduced fitness, especially in frugivorous species. Here, we tested whether ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) and brown lemurs (Eulemur rufifrons × collaris) use fat stores to maintain their energy balance in a gallery forest of Madagascar ...

Circulating Iron Levels Interaction with Central Obesity on the Risk of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: A Case-Control Study in Southeast China.

We aimed to evaluate the associations between body iron stores and the risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in a Chinese population and explore whether this effect may be modified by other factors.

Individual variation of daily torpor and body mass change during winter in the large Japanese field mouse (Apodemus speciosus).

Daily torpor is a strategy used by some overwintering small endotherms to aid in energy conservation. However, the pattern of torpor varies among individuals within species and populations, even under the same environmental conditions, with significant implications for survival rate and reproductive success. Body mass is one factor that may influence this variation, especially in some small mammals that accumulate fat stores prior to overwintering. However, to our knowledge there has been no previous study ...

Spatiotemporal pattern of calcium activity in astrocytic network.

Ca influx through an astrocyte plasma membrane is mediated by ionotropic receptors and Ca channels according the electrochemical gradient. These conductances allow astrocytes to sense the levels of neuronal activity and environmental changes. Na/Ca exchanger (NCX) removes elevated Ca from the cell but can reverse and bring Ca in. Ca entry through the plasma membrane produces local Ca elevations that can be further amplified by Ca induced activation of inositol-3-phosphate (IP) receptors and subsequent Ca re...

Salmonella is one of the most common foodborne pathogens found in retail fresh meat products. The purpose of this study was to characterize the Salmonella that is found in common types of fresh ground meats available to consumers in grocery stores in the Brookings, South Dakota, area. Salmonella serotypes were detected in 50 (19%) of 261 retail fresh ground meat samples, with 2 (2%) of 115 ground turkey samples, 6 (14%) of 42 chicken samples, and 42 (40%) of 104 ground pork samples testing positive for Salm...

PCDDs, PCDFs and PCBs in locally produced foods as health risk factors in Silesia Province, Poland.

Dioxins (PCDDs), furans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) emitted into the environment can accumulate in foods and become a significant source of dietary exposure for consumers of these compounds. This study aims to assess the dietary exposure of the residents in a rural area of the Silesia region in southern Poland to PCDDs, PCDFs and PCBs. The goal is to estimate cancer and non-cancer health risks due to the consumption of foods of animal origin. The area has relatively higher concentration of ...

Modeling energy balance while correcting for measurement error via free knot splines.

Measurements of energy balance components (energy intake, energy expenditure, changes in energy stores) are often plagued with measurement error. Doubly-labeled water can measure energy intake (EI) with negligible error, but is expensive and cumbersome. An alternative approach that is gaining popularity is to use the energy balance principle, by measuring energy expenditure (EE) and change in energy stores (ES) and then back-calculate EI. Gold standard methods for EE and ES exist and are known to give accur...
