PHISTc protein family members localize to different sub-cellular organelles and bind Plasmodium falciparum major virulence factor 'PfEMP-1'.

Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) encodes a novel repertoire of exported protein family called as Plasmodium helical interspersed sub-telomeric (PHIST) that plays diverse roles in infected red blood cells (iRBCs), contributing to malaria pathogenesis. PHIST proteins are central to parasite biology, and modify human erythrocytes by executing interactions with parasite and host proteins. Here, we have attempted to understand the localization and function of two unexplored proteins of PHISTc sub-family 'PFD1140w and ...


Isolation and Cultivation of Adult Rat Cardiomyocytes.

In an intact heart, adjacent cells influence adult cardiomyocytes. With the method of isolation and cultivation of adult cardiomyocytes, a precise investigation of the behavior of these cells under specific treatments and environments is possible. This manuscript presents a protocol for successful isolation and cultivation of adult rat ventricular cardiomyocytes (ARVC). The rat is sacrificed by cervical dislocation under deep anesthesia. Then, the heart is extracted and the aorta is uncovered. Subsequently,...

Clinical Pearl: The "Rule of 8".

Preschool-aged children typically perform worse than 20/20 on visual acuity testing in the absence of ocular or visual pathway abnormalities due to non-ocular issues, including concentration, cooperation, and/or confidence. As a result, vision screening for this age group can be a challenge. The "Rule of 8" is an easy-to-remember, highly effective mnemonic that clinicians can use to help differentiate children who are performing visual acuity testing at age-appropriate levels from those who may need further...


Increasing Capacity for Family Care: A Research Opportunity.

Examining Exercise in Older Adults Using the Theory of Planned Behavior and Temporal Discounting.

Exercise is one of the most important health behaviors to reduce and prevent the severity of many chronic diseases. The purpose of the current study was to determine if adding temporal discounting (TD) would affect the predictability of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) in exercising among older adults. One hundred thirty-seven older adults were recruited from 11 churches in rural Arkansas using a cross-sectional design. Information regarding participants' exercise behavior, constructs of the TPB, TD rat...

Dehydration of Older Patients in Institutional Care and the Home Environment.

Dehydration in older adults is an important clinical problem associated with more comorbidities, longer hospital stays, and higher mortality rates. However, in daily clinical practice, no single gold standard marker of hydration status in older adults is available. The aim of the current study was to define the fluid balance status in older adults residing in institutional care or the home. Four hundred ten patients (192 from institutional care and 218 from home care) 65 and older from the region of lower S...

Pilot Testing a Coaching Intervention to Improve Certified Nursing Assistants' Dressing of Nursing Home Residents.

Seventeen CNA-resident dyads participated in this pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT). Control and experimental group CNAs received a 25-minute traditional lecture. Experimenta...

An unexpected but underestimated case of disseminated toxoplasmosis.

Toxoplasma gondii is a ubiquitous intracellular parasite that can cause disseminated infection following reactivation in immunocompromised hosts. We describe a 58-year-old man who died of refractory shock because of disseminated toxoplasmosis. The diagnosis was only made post-mortem on autopsy. We discuss the importance of considering toxoplasmosis on the differential diagnosis in high-risk patients, and review the role of screening and chemoprophylaxis in preventing infection. This article is protected by ...

Toward ecologically realistic predictions of species distributions: a cross-time example from tropical montane cloud forests.

There is an urgent need for more ecologically realistic models for better predicting the effects of climate change on species' potential geographic distributions. Here we build ecological niche models using MAXENT and test whether selecting predictor variables based on biological knowledge and selecting ecologically realistic response curves can improve cross-time distributional predictions. We also evaluate how the method chosen for extrapolation into nonanalog conditions affects the prediction. We do so b...

Climate-mediated changes in marine ecosystem regulation during El Niño.

The degree to which ecosystems are regulated through bottom-up, top-down or direct physical processes represents a long-standing issue in ecology, with important consequences for resource management and conservation. In marine ecosystems, the role of bottom-up and top-down forcing has been shown to vary over spatio-temporal scales, often linked to highly variable and heterogeneously distributed environmental conditions. Ecosystem dynamics in the Northeast Pacific have been suggested to be predominately bott...

Assessing the geographical dichotomy hypothesis with cacti in South-America.

The Cactaceae is one of the most conspicuous and ecologically important plant families in the world; its species may have specialist or generalist pollination systems that show geographical patterns, which are synthesized in the Geographical Dichotomy Hypothesis. Here, we assess this hypothesis in five countries in both tropical and extratropical regions, evaluating the pollinator visitation rate and pollinator identity and abundance. We calculate the Shannon diversity index (H') and evenness (J) and evalua...

Multifarious anchovy and sardine regimes in the Humboldt Current System during the last 150 years.

The Humboldt Current System (HCS) has the highest production of forage fish in the world, though it is highly variable and the future of the primary component, anchovy, is uncertain in the context of global warming. Paradigms based on late 20(th) century observations suggest that large-scale forcing controls decadal-scale fluctuations of anchovy and sardine across different boundary currents of the Pacific. We develop records of anchovy and sardine fluctuations since 1860 AD using fish scales from multiple ...

Functional and molecular outcomes of the human masticatory muscles.

The masticatory muscles achieve a broad range of different activities such as chewing, sucking, swallowing and speech. In order to accomplish these duties, masticatory muscles have a unique and heterogeneous structure and fibre composition, enabling them to produce their strength and contraction speed largely dependent on their motor units and myosin proteins that can change in response to genetic and environmental factors. Human masticatory muscles express unique myosin isoforms, including a combination of...

Multiple transmissions of chromosomally integrated human herpesvirus-6 in one family.

Chromosomally integrated human herpesvirus-6 (ciHHV-6) can be transmitted from parent to child or via allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). We report a case of ciHHV-6 transmitted via syngeneic HCT, and vertically across three generations. ciHHV-6 was transmitted from a parent to the patient and her identical twin, and from the patient to her son. The patient underwent syngeneic HCT as rescue from chemotherapy-induced aplasia during which ciHHV-6 was re-transmitted to her, this time from her ...

Mammalian Atg9 contributes to the post-Golgi transport of lysosomal hydrolases by interacting with adaptor protein-1.

Accumulating evidence has indicated a role for autophagy-related (Atgs) proteins in cell regulation which is independent of their autophagic activities. As the only known transmembrane protein essential for autophagy, Atg9 cycles between the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and endosomes. Here, we report a function for mammalian Atg9 (mAtg9) in the transport of lysosomal hydrolases which impacts the lysosomal degradation capacity. Depletion of mAtg9 inhibits the degradation of EGFR and the maturation of cathepsin ...

Impact of changes in labor resources and transfers of land use rights on agricultural non-point source pollution in Jiangsu Province, China.

This study systematically explores the likely mechanisms driving the effect of the transfer of agricultural land use rights (ALURs) on agricultural non-point source pollution (ANSP) in the context of changing agricultural labor resources. It quantitatively estimates the direction and degree of this influence from a microeconomic perspective using data from rural households. The results reveal that economies of scale caused by ALURs transfers contribute to reducing both the ANSP and marginal costs of inputs....

Retinal Artery Occlusions.

Retinal artery occlusions are acute vascular diseases. Very often they are caused by an embolisation. Rarely a thrombosis is caused by an arteriitis. In the acute phase diagnosis in most of the cases can be made by ophthalmoscopy due to the whitish retinal edema and in central retinal artery occlusion the cherry red spot. Difficulties in making the diagnosis can occur in the chronic stage, especially after reperfusion of the retinal vessels, when the fundus colour returned to normal again. Several diagnosti...

Diagnosis and Therapy of Iris Lesions.

The most common iris lesions are iris nevi, iris melanomas and iris pigment epithelium cysts. However, there is an abundance of rare differential diagnoses that have to be considered, including other melanocytic and non-melanocytic lesions. Diagnostic tools include the slit lamp examination, gonioscopy, tonometry, transillumination, ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography and standardized photography-assisted documentation. The timely identification of malignant...
