Bacteria Associated with Marginal Zone Lymphomas

Publication date: Available online 28 January 2017 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Haematology Author(s): Maurilio Ponzoni, Andrés JM. Ferreri In the last decades some bacteria have been associated with a various extent with marginal zone (extra nodal, nodal and splenic types) lymphomas are frequently associated with chronic infections, with important clinical, molecular, biological, and therapeutic implications. The well-known correlation between Helicobacter pylori and gastric MALT-lymphoma, the recently reported links between Chlamydia psittaci and ocular adnexal MALT-lymphoma and Borrelia burgdorferi and cutaneous MALT lymphoma constitute the most studied examples; in addition, Campylobacter jejuni and some more recent associations encompassing Achromobacter xylosoxidans and Haemophilus influenzae will be further reported. Biological and clinical features, therapeutic implications and future perspectives of these lymphoma-microbial associations are discussed in this review.

In this study, we developed a secretory production system of the engineered cutinase with PET-depolymerizing activity to obtain high amounts of the enzyme by a relatively simple purification method. This system will contribute to the recycling of PET waste via a more efficient and environmentally friendly method based on enzymes with PET-depolymerizing activity.PMID:35039943 | DOI:10.1007/s00449-022-02690-3

In this study, Escherichia coli was used as model bacterium and the disinfection performance of prepared S-doped g-C3N4 nanosheets (S-CNNs) under visible light was investigated. The results showed that the synergistic effects of S doping and the unique 2D structure of S-CNNs enhanced the visible light absorption, enlarged the specific surface area and reduced the recombination of photogenerated charge carriers which is beneficial for promoting the photocatalytic disinfection of the E. coli. Scavenger experiments indicated •O2- and h+ were the predominant reactive species in the photocatalytic disinfection process. In ...

Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2022 Jan 18. doi: 10.1007/s11356-021-18074-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBorassus flabellifer leaf extract has been used for rapid biogenic synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) due to rich source of bioactive compounds. The synthesized ZnO-NPs were preliminarily confirmed by UV-visible spectroscopy adsorption peak range at 365 nm. The XRD (X-ray diffraction) confirms purity of ZnO-NPs that were crystalline in nature. The analysis of FT-IR (Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy) confirms the presence of the following functional group such as alcohol, phenols, carboxylic acids, pri...

We evaluated the clinicopathologic features of 38 cases of metastatic lobular (n=33) or predominantly lobular (n=5) carcinoma involving the ovary. The patients were from 39 to 91 years of age (mean: 53 y). In 2 cases, the breast primary and ovarian metastasis were diagnosed synchronously, and in 5, the breast primary was only discovered after the metastatic carcinoma in the ovary was found. In the majority of cases (79%), both ovaries were involved; the mean ovarian tumor size was 5.9 cm. The ovarian tumors demonstrated a range of architectural patterns including macronodular (71%), diffuse/solid growth (87%)...

In conclusion, ALK(+) ALCL has a unique metabolism showing high coexpression of MCT1 and MCT4 in tumor cells. Because only ALK(+) ALCL overexpresses MCT4, immunostaining for MCT4 together with ALK is very useful for differential diagnosis from ALK(−) ALCL or peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Moreover, dual targeting against MCT1 and MCT4 would be an appropriate therapeutic approach for ALK(+) ALCL.

This study examined the amino acid activation center of theMycoplasma mobile aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase PheRS through point mutation and enzyme kinetics. A trend ofm-Tyr (an oxidation byproduct of Phe) being poorly discriminated during the step of activation was observed. Since MmPheRS does not editm-Tyr, these findings suggest thatM. mobile may be susceptible tom-Tyr toxicity when Phe is limited unless other quality control mechanisms exist AbstractTo ensure correct amino acids are incorporated during protein synthesis, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) employ proofreading mechanisms collectively referred to as editing. A...

During cotranslational membrane insertion, transmembrane helices first make contact with the membrane when their N-terminal end is ~45 residues away from the peptidyl transferase center. Here, we show that upstream positively charged and re-entrant loops in theEscherichia coli inner membrane protein BtuC can delay the first contact. Thus, both electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions involving upstream sequence elements can impact membrane insertion AbstractDuring SecYEG-mediated cotranslational insertion of membrane proteins, transmembrane helices (TMHs) first make contact with the membrane when their N-terminal end is ...

The intestinal microbiota changes throughout pregnancy and influences maternal metabolic adaptations to support fetal growth. Obesity induces alterations to the microbiota that include decreased microbial diversity and shifts in microbial composition, though specific species changes are inconsistent between published studies. In animal models, probiotics and exercise moderate maternal weight gain and partially correct the maternal microbiota. Supplemental Escherichia coli, however, exacerbate maternal obesity during the perinatal period, lending weight to the theory that inflammation-induced gut epithelial barrier leak inf...
