The systemic use of steroids and habitual alcohol intake are two major causative factors in the development of idiopathic osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). To examine any interaction between oral corticosteroid use and alcohol intake on the risk of ONFH, we conducted a hospital-based case-control study of 71 cases ...

It is generally agreed that the concept of recovery is the result of two primary influences: longitudinal studies and the work, writing, perspectives, and advocacy of the consumer-survivor movement. To clarify what is actually meant by recovery, investigators have compared and contrasted the constructs being conveyed through each primary influence. ...

In contrast to the well-established chemistry of ketones (R2 CO), the reactivity of the elusive heavier congeners R2 EO (E=Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) is far less explored because of the high polarity of the EO bonds and hence their tendency to oligomerize with no activation barrier. Very recently, great advances ...

Sensory preconditioning (SPC; also known as behaviorally silent learning) consists of a combination of two neutral stimuli, none of which elicits an unconditional response. After one of them is later paired with an unconditional stimulus (US), the other neutral stimulus also yields a conditional response although it has never been ...

HISTORY: CaridianBCT apheresis machines require a ~285 mL priming volume (extracorporeal blood) that is withdrawn from the patient in ~10 minutes. Therefore, apheresis in dogs has generally been limited to dogs > ~20 kg to assure <20% of the blood volume is removed in the priming phase. ANIMALS/PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: Three dogs weighing <14 kg ...

Opto-chemical sensors are prepared by self-assembly of SiO/SiO2 nanomembranes into microtube structures. Dynamic molecular processes of H2 O and C2 H5 OH are detected on the surface of sub-wavelength-thin nanomembranes. Based on perturbation theory, quantitative information of molecule layer changes is acquired. The nanomembrane-based molecular-sensing ability constitutes a versatile platform ...

Sexual reproduction in fungi is regulated by the mating-type () locus where recombination is suppressed. We investigated the evolution of loci in eight fungal species belonging to and (Sordariomycetes, Ascomycota) that include conifer pathogens and beetle symbionts. The idiomorph/allele was identified from the assembled and annotated genome, and the locus ...

Abstract Substantial evidence exists that the mitochondrial respiratory chain is organized in supramolecular units called supercomplexes or respirasomes. While the structural evidence of the supercomplexes is overwhelming, fewer studies were addressed to their functional relevance. Although the presence of Coenzyme Q channelling between Complexes I and III is ascertained, no ...

Invasive aspergillosis, especially neuroaspergillosis, predominantly affects immunocompromised patients such as transplant recipients. Early diagnosis and subsequent early initiation of therapy may improve final outcome. In cerebral aspergillosis, samples for culture or histopathology, the diagnostic reference standard, are often impossible to obtain without risk. Because of these limitations, serological, nucleic acid ...

Unlike animals, land plants undergo an alternation of generations, producing multicellular bodies in both haploid (1n: gametophyte) and diploid (2n: sporophyte) generations. Plant body plans in each generation are regulated by distinct developmental programs initiated at either meiosis or fertilization, respectively. In mosses, the haploid gametophyte generation is dominant, whereas ...

Quantification of erythrocyte zinc protoporphyrin IX (ZnPP) and protoporphyrin IX (PPIX), individually or jointly, is useful for the diagnostic evaluation of iron deficiency, iron-restricted erythropoiesis, lead exposure, and porphyrias. A method for simultaneous quantification of ZnPP and PPIX in unwashed blood samples is described, using dual-wavelength excitation to effectively eliminate ...

Epitrix species (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) feed mostly on plants from the family Solanaceae and some of them are major pests of potato crops. All Epitrix species are morphologically highly similar, which makes them difficult to identify and limits their study and management. Identification of species is mostly based on the observation ...

Stra6 is the retinoic acid (RA)-inducible gene encoding the cellular receptor for holo-retinol binding protein. This transmembrane protein mediates the internalization of retinol, which then upregulates RA-responsive genes in target cells. Here, we show that Stra6 can be upregulated by DNA damage in a p53-dependent manner, and it has an ...

Abstract Carcinogenesis is a multi-step and multifactorial process. It includes genetic, epigenetic, nutritional and environmental factors, which are closely interconnected. Human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is among the most frequent and lethal cancers. Imbalance in the S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) concentration, the main methyl group donor, strongly influences the development of HCC. Key ...

Precise identification of RNA-coding regions and transcriptomes of eukaryotes is a significant problem in biology. Currently, eukaryote transcriptomes are analyzed using deep short-read sequencing experiments of complementary DNAs. The resulting short-reads are then aligned against a genome and annotated junctions to infer biological meaning. Here we use long-read complementary DNA ...

We report the structural and magnetic phase transitions of triclinic Ca10(FeAs)10(Pt3As8), which is the parent compound of the 1038-type iron-arsenide superconductors. High-resolution x-ray diffraction reveals splitting of the in-plane (a,b) lattice parameters at Ts ≈ 120 K. Platinum-doping weakens the distortion and shifts the transition temperature to 80 K in Ca10(Fe1-xPtxAs)10(Pt3As8) with x = 0.03. μSR ...

A joint experimental/theoretical study has been carried out on the putative MMA polymerization catalyzed by an yttrium isopropyloxide complex. Despite its high activity in lactone polymerization, this catalyst is found to be unreactive on methyl methacrylate (MMA) polymerization. This surprising result is rationalized using a computational approach at the DFT ...

Graphitic carbon nitride nanosheets are extracted, produced via simple liquid-phase exfoliation of a layered bulk material, g-C3 N4 . The resulting nanosheets, having ≈2 nm thickness and N/C atomic ratio of 1.31, show an optical bandgap of 2.65 eV. The carbon nitride nanosheets are demonstrated to exhibit excellent photocatalytic activity ...

Biology needs a concept of individuality in order to distinguish organisms from parts of organisms and from groups of organisms, to count individuals and compare traits across taxa, and to distinguish growth from reproduction. Most of the proposed criteria for individuality were designed for 'unitary' or 'paradigm' organisms: contiguous, functionally ...

Cyclobutane-1,2,3,4-tetraone, (CO)4 , was computationally predicted and, subsequently, experimentally confirmed to have a triplet ground state, in which a b2g σ MO and an a2u π MO were each singly occupied. In contrast, the (U)CCSD(T) calculations reported herein found that cyclobutane-1,2,3,4-tetrathione, (CS)4 , and cyclobutane-1,2,3,4-tetraselenone, (CSe)4 , both had singlet ground states, ...
