AAV-Mediated Gene Delivery to Taste Cells of the Tongue.
AAV-Mediated Gene Delivery to Taste Cells of the Tongue. Methods Mol Biol. 2019;1950:299-307 Authors: Taruno A, Kashio M Abstract Taste sensation is initiated in sensory cells within the taste buds (taste cells), in which the cooperation of many signaling molecules leads to the coding and transmission of information on the quality and intensity of taste to the afferent gustatory nerves. Here, we describe our method for inducing foreign gene expression in taste cells of fungiform papillae in a living mouse using a recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector, enabling us to study and control the function of a gene product in vivo. Among the serotypes tested to date, only AAV-DJ, a synthetic serotype, can transduce taste cells in vivo. We also describe how to validate intragemmal foreign gene expression in fungiform taste buds using an immunohistochemical approach. PMID: 30783982 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

In this study, the prevalence of adenoviral conjunctivitis determined by hexon gene PCR in patients with clinical diagnosis of acute conjunctivitis was similar to the prevalence rate reported in other regions of the world. In our region, more than one type of hAdV type was associated with acute conjunctivitis. The predominant type was determined as hAdV-8 with a 63% ratio. These results will significantly contribute to the molecular epidemiology of hAdV types in conjunctivitis cases. PMID: 31414631 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS In hyperoxia-induced rat models of BPD, hBD2 promotes alveolarization and improves pulmonary function. The mechanism may contribute in alleviating inflammation response and inhibiting pro-inflammatory factors including IL-1ß, IL-6, and TNF-alpha. PMID: 31411185 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Transcription and post-transcriptional regulations are critical in gene expression. To study the spatiotemporal regulation of RNA inside a cell, techniques for high-resolution imaging of RNA have been developed. In this chapter, we describe RNA fluorescent labeling methods using MS2 and PP7 systems to detect single RNA molecules in live neurons. We use hippocampal neurons cultured from knock-in mouse models in which β-actin or Arc mRNAs are tagged with MS2 or PP7 stem-loops. Adeno-associated virus (AAV) or lentiviral vectors are used to express MS2 or PP7 capsid proteins fused with GFP in those neuro...
Conclusion: HAdV known to cause acute epibulbar infections of the eye may also cause intraocular inflammation such as ARN. PMID: 31411554 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
