2022 Frontiers in Veterinary Science  
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) also known as prion diseases, are fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion diseases are caused by abnormal prion protein (PrPSc) derived from normal prion protein (PrPC), which is encoded by the prion protein gene (PRNP). Prion diseases have been reported in several mammals. Notably, chickens, one species of bird, have not been reported to develop prion diseases and showed resistance to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) infection. However,
more » ... etic polymorphisms of the PRNP gene and protein structure of the prion protein (PrP) related to vulnerability to prion diseases have not been investigated in pheasants, another species of bird. We performed amplicon sequencing of the pheasant PRNP gene to identify genetic polymorphisms in 148 pheasants. We analyzed the genotype, allele and haplotype frequencies of the pheasant PRNP polymorphisms. In addition, we evaluated the effect of genetic polymorphisms of the pheasant PRNP gene on pheasant PrP by the AMYCO, PROVEAN, PolyPhen-2 and PANTHER softwares. Furthermore, we compared the amino acid sequences of tandem repeat domains and secondary and tertiary structures of prion proteins (PrPs) among several animals. Finally, we investigated the impact of non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on hydrogen bonds and tertiary structures of pheasant PrP by Swiss PDB viewer software. We identified 34 novel genetic polymorphisms of the pheasant PRNP gene including 8 non-synonymous SNPs and 6 insertion/deletion polymorphisms. Among the non-synonymous SNPs, the L23F, G33C and R177Q SNPs showed that they could have a deleterious effect on pheasant PrP. In addition, the R177Q SNP was predicted to show an increase in amyloid propensity and a reduction in hydrogen bonds of pheasant PrP. Among the insertion/deletion polymorphisms, c.163_180delAACCCGGGGTATCCCCAC showed that it could have a detrimental effect on pheasant PrP. Furthermore, secondary and tertiary structures of pheasant PrP were predicted to have structures simil [...]

and Objectives:It has been known that various vasoactive agents are involved in the regulation of cardiac function through the modification of the K + channel activities, including the ATP-sensitive K + channel (K ATP ). We examined the effects of several vasoactive agents on the cardiac K ATP currents in isolated cardiac myocytes. Materials and Methods:Ventricular myocytes were isolated from the hearts of ICR mice by enzymatic digestion. The channel currents were recorded by the excised
more » ... out and cell-attached patch clamp configurations. Results:In the excised inside-out patches, bradykinin (BRK; 1-10 μM) and prostaglandin I 2 (PGI; 10-50 μM) did not affect the channel activities, whereas the vasodilators increased the attenuated channel activities in the presence of 100 μM ATP. BRK and PGI in parallel shifted the dose-response curves of ATP (1-1,000 μM), and this inhibited the K ATP currents to the right. Endothelin (ET-1; 0.1-1 nM) and leukotriene D 4 (LTD; 3-10 μM) decreased the channel activities immediately after making the inside-out patches. However, the vasoconstrictors did not affect the attenuated channel activities by ATP. In the cell-attached patches, both BRK and PGI increased the channel activities and these effects were markedly attenuated by glibenclamide (50 μM). ET-1 and LTD did not affect the baseline channel activities in the cell-attached patches, but they markedly attenuated the dinitrophenol-induced activities. Conclusion:It was inferred that certain vasoactive substances are involved in the regulation of cardiac K ATP channel activities, and that bradykinin and PGI 2 enhance the channel activities, and ET-1 and LTD4 inhibit the channel activities.

Background/Aims: Coronary vasospasms are one of the important causes of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Provocation of coronary vasospasms can be useful, though some results may lead to false positives, with patients potentially experiencing recurrent SCD despite appropriate medical treatments. We hypothesized that it is not coronary vasospasms but inherited primary arrhythmia syndromes (IPAS) that underlie the development of SCD. Methods: We analyzed 74 consecutive patients (3.8%) who survived

Electrical abnormalities were evaluated in serial follow-up electrocardiograms (ECGs) during and after the index event for a 3.9 years median follow-up. Major clinical events were defined as the composite of death and recurrent SCD events. Results: Forty five patients (60.8%) displayed electrocardiographic abnormalities suggesting IPAS: Brugada type patterns in six (8.2%), arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia patterns in three (4.1%), long QT syndrome pattern in one (2.2%), and early repolarization in 38 (51.4%). Patients having major clinical events showed more frequent Brugada type patterns, early repolarization, and more diffuse multivessel coronary vasospasms. Brugada type pattern ECGs (adjusted hazard ratio [HR], 4.22; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.16 to 15.99; p = 0.034), and early repolarization (HR, 2.97; 95% CI, 1.09 to 8.10; p = 0.034) were ultimately associated with an increased risk of mortality. Conclusions: Even though a number of aborted SCD survivors have coronary vasospasms, some also have IPAS, which has the potential to cause SCD. Therefore, meticulous evaluations and follow-ups for IPAS are required in those patients.

2018 Journal of Ginseng Research  
The antioxidant effects of Panax ginseng have been reported in several articles; however, little is known about the antimelanogenesis effect, skin-protective effect, and cellular mechanism of Panax ginseng, especially of P. ginseng calyx. To understand how an ethanol extract of P. ginseng berry calyx (Pg-C-EE) exerts skin-protective effects, we studied its activities in activated melanocytes and reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced keratinocytes. To confirm the antimelanogenesis effect of
more » ... EE, we analyzed melanin synthesis and secretion and messenger RNA and protein expression levels of related genes. Ultraviolet B (UVB) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) were used to induce cell damage by ROS generation. To examine whether this damage is inhibited by Pg-C-EE, we performed cell viability assays and gene expression and transcriptional activation analyses. Pg-C-EE inhibited melanin synthesis and secretion by blocking activator protein 1 regulatory enzymes such as p38, extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs), and cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element-binding protein. Pg-C-EE also suppressed ROS generation induced by H2O2 and UVB. Treatment with Pg-C-EE decreased the expression of matrix metalloproteinases, mitogen-activated protein kinases, and hyaluronidases and increased the cell survival rate. These results suggest that Pg-C-EE may have antimelanogenesis properties and skin-protective properties through regulation of activator protein 1 and cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element-binding protein signaling. Pg-C-EE may be used as a skin-improving agent, with moisture retention and whitening effects.

Rationale: Nephropathy with concurrent invasive thymoma is a type of paraneoplastic syndrome. Patient concerns and Diagnoses: We report a 32-year-old female with nephrotic syndrome that was first diagnosed along with invasive thymoma and treated by means of cisplatin-based chemotherapy for the thymoma. The patient initially presented with dyspnea and generalized edema. Chest radiography and computed tomography scans revealed right pleural effusion and a mass in the right middle lung field,

Severe hypoalbuminemia, heavy proteinuria, hyponatremia, and hypercholesterolemia were features of the nephrotic syndrome. A kidney needle biopsy suggested focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Interventions and Outcomes: All of the symptoms of nephrotic syndrome were resolved simultaneously during the first 2 cycles of chemotherapy. The patient was on regular follow-up with no specific treatment for nephrotic syndrome and underwent successful resection of the left pleura and anterior thymoma. The patient has shown no evidence of recurrence for 2 years. Lessons: We conclude that chemotherapy for invasive thymoma is an effective treatment for nephrotic syndrome accompanying the thymoma.

After predilation, a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) covered stent graft (3.0×16 mm JoStent Graft Master ® , JoMed, Germany) for fistula and an additional conventional stent for just below the graft stented site of proximal LAD stenosis were implanted successfully. After stenting, no visible large fistula or remaining stenosis was demonstrated on CAG. The stent graft was deployed with a high success rate. The restenosis rate was not higher than expected for bare stents. However, as subacute occlusion may occur more frequently, long-term ticlopidine or clopidogrel treatment should be required.
