Factors affecting the success of grizzly bear translocations

(Wiley) The number of grizzly bear translocations has increased in recent years to protect the bears and reduce conflicts with humans. In a recent Journal of Wildlife Management analysis of translocations in Alberta, Canada, researchers found that the most important factors for translocation success were the level of human-caused mortality risk at the release site and the time of year when the translocation occurred.

Purpose of review While advanced age is the major risk factor for the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), we have a poor understanding of how aging promotes the progression of this disease. Recent evidence suggests that the age-dependent accumulation of somatic mutations in hematopoietic cells may represent a new causal risk factor for ASCVD. Recent findings A hallmark of aging is the accumulation of somatic DNA mutations in all tissues of the body. Accordingly, evidence shows that hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells accumulate somatic mutations as a function of age in nonsymptomatic individ...

We report a Japanese girl with Coffin ‐Lowry syndrome phenotype such as hypertelorism, hypodontia, and tapering fingers and 46,XX,t(X;11)(p22;p15)dn. Whole genome sequencing revealedRPS6KA3 disruption by the translocation, and X ‐inactivation analysis indicated preferential inactivation of the normal X chromosome. The results explain the development of an X‐linked disease in this girl.

In this study, we generated a Gnaq-overexpression cell using gene recombinant technique and lentivirus transfection technique in a neuron-like PC12 cell, and investigated whethe r Gnaq had antioxidant effects in PC12 cells treated with H2O2. The viability of cells, concentration of ROS, Nrf2 nuclear translocation, expression of antioxidant enzymes, activation of NF- κB and apoptosis were compared between Gnaq-PC12 cells and Vector-PC12 cells. Results showed that, compared with Vector-PC12 cells, the antioxidative ability of Gnaq-PC12 cells was significantly improved, while the ROS level in Gnaq-PC12 cells was signifi...

Conclusion: Adrenal gland tumors of childhood with complex immunophenotypic features requires distinguishing two discrete tumors in the small round blue cell tumor group, neuroblastoma and Ewing sarcoma. Although no exact diagnosis of the tumor was made, we reached a good response with neuroblastoma treatment protocol. PMID: 32242756 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal hematopoietic stem cell proliferation caused by a constitutively active tyrosine kinase called BCR-ABL. The BCR-ABL fusion gene results from a translocation between chromosomes 9 and 22. The development of targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) has transformed this previously fatal illness into a chronic disease.

Abstract Poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) is a synthetic copolymer that has been used to design micro/nanoparticles as a carrier for macromolecules, such as protein and nucleic acids, that can be internalized by the endocytosis pathway. However, it is difficult to control the intracellular delivery to target organelles. Here we report an intracellular delivery system of nanoparticles modified with bacterial cytotoxins to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and anti-inflammatory activity of the nanoparticles. Subtilase cytotoxin (SubAB) is a bacterial toxin in certain enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) s...

We present a novel case of azoospermia with a karyotype of 46,Y,t(X:16)(p22.1:p11.2). A 26-year-old, healthy, active duty male Solider presented with his dependent female partner for primary infertility. Female anatomical and endocrine evaluations were normal. Initial male evaluation revealed azoospermia on multiple semen analyses. Further evaluation with a detailed physical exam and laboratory tests were normal except for an abnormal karyotype with a reciprocal translocation at chromosomes X and 16. An open testicular biopsy demonstrated 75% late spermatid maturation arrest confirming reproductive potential although signi...
