Amplicon-Based Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing of Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded Tissue.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is rapidly becoming the method of choice for mutation analysis in both research and diagnostics. The benefit of targeted NGS compared to whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing is that smaller amounts of input material can be used as well as qualitatively suboptimal tissue samples, like formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded archival tissue.Here, we describe the protoco...

High-Throughput Targeted Repeat Element Bisulfite Sequencing (HT-TREBS).

High-throughput targeted repeat element bisulfite sequencing (HT-TREBS) is designed to assay the methylation level of individual retrotransposon loci of a targeted family, in a locus-specific manner, and on a genome-wide scale. Briefly, genomic DNA is sheared and ligated to Ion Torrent A adaptors (with methylated cytosines), followed by bisulfite-conversion, and amplification with primers designed...

Ion Torrent and lllumina, two complementary RNA-seq platforms for constructing the holm oak (Quercus ilex) transcriptome.

Transcriptome analysis is widely used in plant biology research to explore gene expression across a large variety of biological contexts such as those related to environmental stress and plant-pathogen interaction. Currently, next generation sequencing platforms are used to obtain a high amount of raw data to build the transcriptome of any plant. Here, we compare Illumina and Ion Torrent sequencin...

Males increase call frequency, not intensity, in response to noise, revealing no Lombard effect in the little torrent frog.

Noise is one of the main factors that can influence the processes of sound communication across a wide range of animal groups. Although the effects of ambient noise on animal communication, including anthropogenic noise, have received increasing attention, few studies have examined changes in the fine structure of acoustic signals produced by vocalizing species in constantly noisy environments. He...

Genomic Interventions in Medicine.

Lately, the term "genomics" has become ubiquitous in many scientific articles. It is a rapidly growing aspect of the biomedical sciences that studies the genome. The human genome contains a torrent of information that gives clues about human origin, evolution, biological function, and diseases. In a bid to demystify the workings of the genome, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was initiated in 1990, ...

Venkat N. Reddy, 1922-2018, in memoriam.

Effect of crop residues on interception and activity of prosulfocarb, pyroxasulfone, and trifluralin.

Crop residue retention on the soil surface in no-tillage system can intercept pre-emergent herbicides and reduce their efficacy. Three experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of crop residue amount (0, 1, 2 and 4 t ha-1), moisture (wet versus dry), type (wheat, barley, canola, chickpea and lupin) and age (fresh or aged for one year) on the interception and subsequent leaching of prosu...

Significant allelic dropout phenomenon of Oncomine BRCA Research Assay on Ion Torrent S5.

Effect of an Emollient on the Mycobiome of Atopic Dermatitis Patients.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with changes in skin bacterial microbiome. Emollient treatment induces change in bacterial microbiome in AD, but its effect on fungal microbiome ("mycobiome") and their inter-kingdom correlations is unknown. We used Ion-Torrent sequencing to characterize the mycobiome of AD patients in response to emollient treatment.

Lupin seed hydrolysate promotes G-protein-coupled receptor, intracellular Ca and enhanced glycolytic metabolism-mediated insulin secretion from BRIN-BD11 pancreatic beta cells.

Lupin seed proteins have been reported to exhibit hypoglycaemic effects in animals and humans following oral administration, however little is known about its mechanism of action. This study investigated the signalling pathway(s) responsible for the insulinotropic effect of the hydrolysate obtained from lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.) seed extracts utilizing BRIN-BD11 β-cells. The extract was tr...

Interaction of γ-conglutin from Lupinus albus with model phospholipid membranes: Investigations on structure, thermal stability and oligomerization status.

Interaction with model phospholipid membranes of lupin seed γ-conglutin, a glycaemia-lowering protein from Lupinus albus seeds, has been studied by means of Fourier-Transform infrared spectroscopy at pH 7.0 and at pH 4.5. The protein maintains the same secondary structure both at pH 7.0 and at pH 4.5, but at pH 7.0 a higher H/H exchange was observed, indicating a greater solvent accessibility. Th...

Lupin: An Emerging Food Allergen in the United States.

Promising effect of rapamycin on multiple sclerosis.

The routine therapies for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) are common disease-modifying medications, yet are not effective in all patients. The aim of the present clinical trial was to evaluate the therapeutic effects of rapamycin on the clinical and radiological aspects, regulatory T cells proliferation and FOXP3 and GARP gene expression in the patients with RRMS. In this study, eigh...

Suitability of open-access elevation models for micro-scale watershed planning.

Watershed planning is a major issue in Turkey and other parts of the world. Surrounded by seawater on almost three-quarters of its international borders and by sheer mountains along the coastal regions and throughout the country, Turkey experiences a range of climatic changes, which constantly shape its topography. Recently, the occurrences of floods, landslides, and torrents have increased, forci...

Assessing plant-available glyphosate in contrasting soils by diffusive gradient in thin-films technique (DGT).

Glyphosate represents one quarter of global herbicide sales, with growing interest in both its fate in soils and potential to cause non-target phytotoxicity to plants. However, assessing glyphosate bioavailability to plants from soil residues remains challenging. Here we demonstrate that the diffusive gradient in thin-films technique (DGT) can effectively measure available glyphosate across bounda...

Honoring eight senior distinguished plant biologists from India.

We summarize here research contributions of eight stalwarts in photosynthesis research from India. These distinguished scientists (Shree Kumar Apte, Basanti Biswal, Udaya C. Biswal, Agepati S. Raghavendra, Attipalli Ramachandra Reddy, Prafullachandra Vishnu (Raj) Sane, Baishnab Charan Tripathy, and Dinesh C. Uprety) were honored on November 2, 2017, at the School of Life Sciences, University of Hy...

The Case: Chronic Kidney Disease Unmasked by Single-Subject Research.

We present a 42-year-old man with a BMI of 32, who was referred because of proteinuria and decreased renal function. We were impressed by his markedly muscular physique. A renal biopsy was performed, which showed focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS). Is this patient merely an obese person with FSGS or is something else going on here? We performed extensive clinical and laboratory examinatio...

Evaluating the effects of check dams on channel geometry, bed sediment size and riparian vegetation in Mediterranean mountain torrents.

In mountain streams possible negative impacts of check dams on soil, water and riparian vegetation due to check dam installation can be noticed. In spite of the ample literature on the qualitative effects of engineering works on channel hydrology, morphology, sedimentary effects and riparian vegetation characteristics, quantitative evaluations of the changes induced by check dams on headwater char...

Biomolecules-mediated synthesis of selenium nanoparticles using Aspergillus oryzae fermented Lupin extract and gamma radiation for hindering the growth of some multidrug-resistant bacteria and pathogenic fungi.

Biosynthesis of nanoparticles by fermented plants using microbes is an eco-friendly and cost-effective process. In this study, we used the fungus Aspergillus orayzae for the fermentation process. The aqueous extract of fermented Lupin (AEFL) possesses the ability to reduce selenium ion in the presence of gamma rays evidenced by the color changes to red. Elemental composition, surface morphology, a...
