Surgical repair of oesophageal atresia may result in anastomotic strictures. These strictures are often treated by balloon dilatation (BD) and currently balloon dilatation (fluoroscopic or endoscopic) is the preferred primary treatment method. Here we review the current evidence of the outcomes of balloon dilatation of anastomotic strictures secondary to surgical ...

Micelles with surface morpholino groups were stealthy at blood and normal tissue pH (7.4) due to the unprotonated hydrophilic morpholino groups on the surfaces. At tumor pH (<7), the micelle surfaces were positively charged because of the protonation of the morpholino groups, which promoted the cellular uptake of the micelles.

The membrane remodeling events required for autophagosome biogenesis are still poorly understood. Because PX domain proteins mediate membrane remodeling and trafficking, we conducted an imaging-based siRNA screen for autophagosome formation targeting human PX proteins. The PX-BAR protein SNX18 was identified as a positive regulator of autophagosome formation, and its Drosophila ...

Chromatin insulators assist in the formation of higher-order chromatin structures by mediating long-range contacts between distant genomic sites. It has been suggested that insulators accomplish this task by forming dense nuclear foci termed insulator bodies that result from the coalescence of multiple protein-bound insulators. However, these structures remain poorly understood, ...
