Authors: Tvrdá E, Michalko J, Árvay J, Vukovic NL, Ivanišová E, Ďuračka M, Matušíková I, Kačániová M Abstract Schisandra chinensis is a woody vine native to China, Korea, and Russia, which has been used as a traditional herbal remedy to treat male infertility. As very little information is available concerning its effects on ejaculated spermatozoa, the aim of this study was to investigate the chemical, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties of the S. chinensis berry (Omija) extract followed by an assessment of its in vitro effects on bovine sperm ...

This study investigated antibacterial-producing Streptomyces isolated from the gut of estuarine fish Chanos chanos, emphasizing screening for the producer of peptide-containing antibacterial compounds. Eighteen isolates were found during preliminary screening, in which four isolates showed the best antibacterial activities. Based on the morphological, physiological, and biochemical characterization, as well as 16S rRNA partial sequencing, all of the four isolates belonged to Streptomyces. Three isolates were suspected as novel isolate candidates based on homology presentations and phylogenetic tree analysis. Disk-diffusion...

rcelo B. Cioffi The armored Harttia catfishes present great species diversity and remarkable cytogenetic variation, including different sex chromosome systems. Here we analyzed three new species, H. duriventris, H. villasboas and H. rondoni, using both conventional and molecular cytogenetic techniques (Giemsa-staining and C-banding), including the mapping of repetitive DNAs using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) experiments. Both H. duriventris and H. villasboas have 2n = ♀56/♂55 chromosomes, and an X1X1X2X2 /X1X2Y sex chromosome system, while a proto or neo-XY s...

Authors: Ventriglio A, Sancassiani F, Contu MP, Latorre M, Di Slavatore M, Fornaro M, Bhugra D Abstract Mediterranean Diet (MD) is currently considered one of the most healthy dietary models worldwide. It is generally based on the daily intake of fruit and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fish, white meats, and olive oil. It may also include moderate consumption of fermented dairy products, a low intake of red meat, and red/white wine during the main course. Even if the effect of MD on cancer prevention as well as on human metabolic and cardiovascular balance has been discussed, including the quality of lif...

This study evaluates the dissipation of bifenthrin and deltamethrin residues in unhulled rice and the translocation of these insecticide residues in husked rice stored at 25 °C in a biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) incubator for 35 days. For pesticide determination, the simple and efficient solid-liquid extraction methods with low temperature partition (SLE/LTP) followed by gas chromatography with electron capture detection (GC-ECD), for unhulled and husked rice were op timized and validated. These methods produced results of validated parameters consistent with Brazilian legislation, showing good efficiency (recovery r...

Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, highly aggressive neoplasm typically presenting with widespread involvement of the abdominopelvic peritoneum of adolescent males, usually without organ-based primary. Although it is believed to originate from the serous (mainly peritoneal) membranes, intracranial, sinonasal, intraosseous, and other soft tissue sites are also documented. A chromosomal translocation t(11:22)(p13;q12) signature that fuses EWSR1 and WT1 genes results in the production of a chimeric protein with transcriptional regulatory activity that drives oncogenesis. Integration of clinical, morphologi...

AbstractBackgroundThe American Society of Clinical Oncology guidelines recommend early referral to reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) specialists for young women diagnosed with breast cancer. Current practice patterns demonstrate an increased utilization of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). We evaluated premenopausal women with breast cancer after consultation with a Fertility Nurse Specialist (FNS) and determine factors associated with referral to REI specialists.MethodsThis retrospective review included all premenopausal women diagnosed at our institution with stage 0 –III unilateral breast cancers betw...

Ott Research Institute of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductology, Saint Petersburg, Russia 2Department of Genetics and Biotechnology, Saint Petersburg State University, Saint Petersburg, Russia In the present review, we focus on the phenomenon of chromothripsis, a new type of complex chromosomal rearrangements. We discuss the challenges of chromothripsis detection and its distinction from other chromoanagenesis events. Along with already known causes and mechanisms, we introdu...

Rationale: Y;autosome translocations are associated with male infertility and azoospermia. Some carriers with a Y:22 translocation can produce offspring and transmit the translocation through generations without phenotypic repercussion. Hence, the clinical features of carriers with certain Y chromosome abnormalities remain uncertain. Patient concerns: An apparently healthy 33-year-old man, 175 cm tall and weighing 60 kg had a 6-month history of primary infertility. Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with oligoasthenozoospermia. A series of examinations have been performed to evaluate possible genetic causes o...
