Publication date: Available online 18 August 2018Source: Saudi Journal of Biological SciencesAuthor(s): Shufen Zhu, pengfei Li, hong Suo, jingsheng Dong, liying CuiAbstractPolymorphisms in the gene encoding for A disintegrin and metalloprotease 33 (ADAM33) are closely associated with the risk of bronchial asthma attacks in different populations. We collected blood samples from 248 asthma patients - 130 of the Han ethnic group and 118 of the Mongolian ethnic group - living in the Inner Mongolia region of China, and analyzed the single nuclear polymorphisms (SNPs) of the T1, T2 and V4 loci of the ADAM33 gene using ...

Disclosed are (N)-methanocarba adenine nucleosides, e.g., of the formula (I): as A3 adenosine receptor agonists, pharmaceutical compositions comprising such nucleosides, and a method of use of these nucleosides, wherein A, a, R2, and R3 are as defined in the specification. These nucleosides are contemplated for use in the treatment a number of diseases, for example, inflammation, cardiac ischemia, stroke, asthma, diabetes, and cardiac arrhythmias. Also disclosed are conjugates comprising a dendrimer and one or more ligands, which are functionalized congeners of an agonist or antagonist of a receptor of the G-protein couple...

The five Muscarinic Acetylcholine (ACh) receptors are G-protein coupled receptors (M1R-M5R). M1R, M3R and M5R selectively couple to Gq/G11; M2R and M4R selectively couple to Gi/Go. M3 muscarinic ACh receptors are present in the central nervous system and the periphery.M3R knockout mice are viable and fertile, and have no major morphological abnormalities. They have a lean phenotype. This results from a combination of reduced caloric intake and increased energy expenditure. They eat less food than wild-type mice, possibly because a central cholinergic pathway that stimulates food intake is disrupted. They also expend more e...

Conclusions: While the number of identified studies was not large, none reported negative impacts of mHealth on selected outcomes. Future studies on mHealth should design interventions with a greater variety of targeted functions and should adopt more rigorous methodologies to strengthen the evidence for its effectiveness in chronic disease management.

Conclusions: Among children with asthma and chronic exposure to woodsmoke, an air-filter intervention that improved indoor air quality did not affect quality-of-life measures. Intent-to-treat analysis did show an improvement in the secondary measure of dPFV. Trial registration: NCT00807183.
