Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...

This study aimed to explore how lncRNA Tug1 affected the pulmonary vascular remodeling in HPH. A mouse model of HPH and a pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell (PASMC) model of HPH (HPH-PASMCs) were established, where the expression of lncRNA Tug1 was determined. Then, the interaction among lncRNA Tug1, miR-374c, and Foxc1 was assessed. Finally, in order to determine the effects of lncRNA Tug1 on PASMC activities and pulmonary vascular remodeling after HPH, the expression of lncRNA Tug1 was silenced in HPH-PASMCs and HPH mice, with the proliferation, apoptosis, and migration of PASMCs as well as blood pressure in mice measur...

Germà LluchAbstractRecent epidemiological studies have shown that alcohol consumption can increase the risk of arterial hypertension, atrial fibrillation and gastrointestinal and breast cancer. Various sectors are therefore promoting abstinence from alcohol. However, light alcohol consumption has once again been shown to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and diabetes but with an unclear effect on cerebrovascular disease. The decision to consume alcohol should therefore be ...

In conclusion, our results demonstrated that compression induced apoptosis in primary cultured cortical neurons, which was associated with ROS mediated ER stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. Pharmacological compounds or agents targeting mitochondrial dysfunction and ER stress associated oxidative stress might be ideal candidates for the treatment of IH-related neurological diseases.
