Meiosis: SUMO Keeps a Tight Grip on Sister Chromatids.

Maintaining cohesion between sister chromatids during the first meiotic cell division is crucial for preventing oocyte aneuploidy. In a new paper in Current Biology, Yi and colleagues present evidence that the Small Ubiquitin-related Modifier (SUMO) pathway protects centromeric sister cohesion during the meiosis I-II transition in mouse oocytes.

The association between polymorphism of BDNF gene and cigarette smoking in the Iranian population.

Cigarette smoking remains to be a serious public health problem. The environmental and genetic factors both play critical roles in the process of cigarette smoking. We sought to investigate the associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) BDNF gene and cigarette smoking in the Iranian population.

Smoking-related weight and appetite concerns and use of electronic cigarettes among daily cigarette smokers.

Weight control is a common motive for cigarette smoking.  Some individuals also report using electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) for weight control.  This study tested the hypothesis that the tendency to use combustible cigarettes for weight/appetite control would be associated with higher odds of current e-cigarette use among adult daily combustible cigarette smokers. Participants (n = 577; M = 44.42; 52.7% female) were recruited to participate in an online survey. Smoking for weight/appetite control ...

Development and validation of the cigarette smoking consequences looming scale.

Experimental manipulations intended to alter cognitive appraisals of smoking-related threats may affect cigarette smoking and motivation to quit. However, no previous measure has directly assessed perceptions of smoking-related threats as increasing and coming closer in space and/or time (i.e., "looming"). The current research develops such a measure of dynamic smoking-related threat appraisal: the Cigarette Smoking Consequences Looming Scale (CSCLS).

Attitudes and perceptions about cigarette smoking among nonsmoking high school students.

To explore the association between cigarette smoking intention and attitude, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control as identified by the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) in a cohort of nonsmoking teenagers.

Cohort effects of tobacco control policy: evidence to support a tobacco-free norm through smoke-free policy.

The prevalence of cigarette smoking among South Korean adolescents has decreased markedly over the past decade, which may indicate a norm shift between generations of adolescents. The present study aims to identify the effect of banning smoking in public places and increasing cigarette prices on current adolescent smoking, and to determine whether these policies additionally resulted in cohort effects.

E-Cigarette Use in a Country With Prevalent Tobacco Smoking: A Population-Based Study in Taiwan.

The different profiles of e-cigarette users in different age groups have seldom been investigated, particularly in populations facing a high prevalence of cigarette smoking. This study aims to examine the prevalence and correlates of e-cigarette use separately for adolescents and adults in nationally representative samples in Taiwan.

Patterns of E-Cigarette Use Among Youth and Young Adults: Review of the Impact of E-Cigarettes on Cigarette Smoking.

The present article provides a review of the impact of e-cigarette use on subsequent cigarette smoking among youth and YAs. Studies presented here suggest that e-cigarette use among non-smokers is associated with subsequent cigarette smoking, but study designs are subject to numerous limitations. Future research should focus on addressing the characteristics that put youth and YAs at risk of using either product and how appeal and accessibility of these products are related to product use in order to inform...

Waterpipe Smoking Is Associated with Changes in Fibrinogen, FVII, and FVIII Levels.

Cigarette smoking has been shown to be associated with changes in coagulation factors in the circulation and the subsequent thrombosis development. In this study, the impact of waterpipe smoking on the levels of fibrinogen, factor VII (FVII), and factor VIII (FVIII) was investigated. In addition, the effects of waterpipe smoking were compared to those of cigarette smoking and never smokers. A total of 80 male smokers (40 cigarette smokers and 40 waterpipe smokers) and 40 apparently healthy never smokers wer...

Cohesin and chromosome segregation.

Cohesin is a ring-shaped protein complex that organises the genome, enabling its condensation, expression, repair and transmission. Cohesin is best known for its role in chromosome segregation, where it provides the cohesion that is established between the two newly duplicated sister chromatids during S phase. This cohesion enables the proper attachment of sister chromatids to microtubules of the spindle by resisting their opposing pulling forces. Once all chromosomes are correctly attached, cohesin is abru...

Co-occurring vulnerabilities and menthol use in U.S. young adult cigarette smokers: Findings from Wave 1 of the PATH Study, 2013-2014.

This study incorporates intersectionality theory to address potential effects of age on other documented risk factors for current smoking and menthol cigarette use in young adults aged 18-34 using Wave 1 of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study (2013-2014). We explored known correlates of current cigarette and menthol cigarette smoking and interaction analyses by age group (18-24 vs. 25-34), accounting for survey weighting. Use of non-cigarette tobacco products and e-cigarettes was ch...

Strong excess risk of pancreatic cancer for low frequency and duration of cigarette smoking: A comprehensive review and meta-analysis.

Cigarette smoking is an established risk factor for pancreatic cancer but an updated quantification of the association is lacking. Our aim is to provide the most accurate and updated estimate of the dose-response relationships between cigarette smoking and pancreatic cancer risk.

Cancer mortality attributable to cigarette smoking in 2005, 2010 and 2015 in Qingdao, China.

Cigarette smoking is among the most important public health concerns worldwide and the leading preventable cause of illness and death associated with cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although Qingdao, China implemented smoking control measures in 2007 and smoke-free legislation in 2013, smoking-attributable cancer mortality remains at a high level. The present study aimed to facilitate changes in policy-making, intervention implementation, monitoring and...

Trends in Illicit Drug Use Among Smokers and Nonsmokers in the United States, 2002-2014.

Cigarette smoking has declined in the United States. Still, identifying prevalent and modifiable barriers to quitting can help inform the next steps for tobacco control. Illicit drug use, which may be increasingly common in the United States, could be one such factor. We investigated the relationship between past-month illicit drug use and cigarette smoking status and estimated trends in the prevalence of past-month illicit drug use by cigarette smoking status from 2002 to 2014 in the United States.

Genetic vulnerability for smoking and cannabis use: associations with e-cigarette and water pipe use.

Cigarette smoking and cannabis use are heritable traits and share, at least in part, a common genetic substrate. In recent years the prevalence of alternative methods of nicotine intakes, such as e-cigarette and water pipe use, has risen substantially. We tested whether the genetic vulnerability underlying cigarettes smoking and cannabis use explained variability in e-cigarette and water pipe use phenotypes, as these vaping methods are alternatives for smoking tobacco cigarettes and joints.

Effect of smoking status on neuronal responses to graphic cigarette warning labels.

Smoking is responsible for a large proportion of cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular deaths. Nevertheless the health risks of smoking are still underestimated in many smokers. The present study aimed to examine neurobiological responses to graphical warnings on cigarette packings in non-smokers and patients with tobacco dependence.

Evidence on the association between cigarette smoking and incident depression from the South African National Income Dynamics Study 2008-2014: mental health implications for a resource-limited setting.

As a leading global disease risk factor, cigarette smoking has declined in some developed countries, but its health consequences are not well established in sub-Saharan Africa. This is particularly evident in South Africa, where few investigations have quantified the dually-neglected challenges of cigarette smoking and depression, despite decades of research from developed countries. We investigated the association between cigarette smoking and incident depression, with the hypothesis that adolescents are p...

Cost-effectiveness analysis of smoking cessation interventions using cell phones in a low-income population.

The prevalence of cigarette smoking is significantly higher among those living at or below the federal poverty level. Cell phone-based interventions among such populations have the potential to reduce smoking rates and be cost-effective.

A Review of the Role of Cigarette Smoking in the Diabetic Foot.

Diabetic foot ulceration has been a serious issue over the past decades in Asia, causing economic and social problems. Therefore, it is important to identify and reduce risk factors of diabetic foot. Cigarette smoking has been reported to be associated with diabetes and its macrovascular complications, but the relationship between smoking and diabetic foot ulcers is still unclear. In this review, we summarizes the effects of cigarette smoking on diabetic foot ulcers with respect to peripheral neuropathy, va...

Common and rare variants genetic association analysis of cigarettes per day among ever smokers in COPD cases and controls.

Cigarette smoking is a major environmental risk factor for many diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). There are shared genetic influences on cigarette smoking and COPD. Genetic risk factors for cigarette smoking in cohorts enriched for COPD are largely unknown.

Association of Electronic Cigarette Vaping and Cigarette Smoking With Decreased Random Flap Viability in Rats.

Smoking is a known risk to wound healing, but whether electronic cigarettes present the same risk remains unknown.

Impact of cigarette taxes on smoking prevalence from 2001-2015: A report using the Behavioral and Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (BRFSS).

To provide an up-to-date analysis on the relationship between excise taxes and the prevalence of cigarette smoking in the United States.

Adverse Childhood Experiences and Youth Cigarette Use in 2013 and 2016: Emerging Disparities in the Context of Declining Smoking Rates.

Cigarette use has dropped dramatically among youth since 2013, but smoking-related disparities persist. We examine who still smokes in the context of declining smoking rates. Using the Minnesota Student Survey (MSS), we examine adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and cigarette use in 2013 and 2016. We assess how use rates changed, how ACEs relate to cigarette use, and the degree to which youth with ACEs comprise the current smoking population.

Probabilistic Discrete Event Systems Modeling of Nonlinear Transitions between Electronic and Combustible Cigarette Smoking with the 2014 National Youth Tobacco Survey Data.

A growing number of young people smoke electronic (e-) cigarettes, presenting an emerging challenge to tobacco control. Analyses are needed to better understand the dynamics of mutual transitions between e-cigarette and conventional combustible (c-) cigarette smoking to advance evidence-based tobacco control. In this study we modeled the nonlinear dynamics of c- and e-cigarette smoking behavior transitions using the 2014 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) data. A model with five Markov-Chain transition st...

The relationship between cigarettes and electronic cigarettes: Evidence from household panel data.

We use the Nielsen Consumer Panel to investigate the impact of tobacco control policies on purchases of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), cigarettes, and smoking cessation products. We measure product quantity, product type, nicotine content, and liquid volume of e-cigarettes, and product quantity and nicotine content of cigarettes. Higher cigarette excise taxes decrease both cigarette and e-cigarette purchases, suggesting that cigarettes and e-cigarettes are complements, and higher cigarette excise tax...
