Hejátko J Abstract Determining conditions optimal for host growth, maximal protein yield, and lysis buffer composition is of critical importance for the efficient purification of soluble and well-folded recombinant proteins suitable for functional and/or structural studies. Small-scale optimization of conditions for protein production and stability saves time, labor, and costs. Here we describe a protocol for quick protein production and solubility screen using TissueLyser II system from Qiagen enabling simultaneous processing of 96 protein samples, with application to recombinant proteins encompassing two...

ABSTRACT A 52-year-old male patient complained of loss of sensitivity and pain in the maxilla. After examination, root canal treatment of tooth 12 was requested. Subsequently, there was a purplish increased volume of softened consistency in the area of vestibular attached gingiva of tooth 12. The anterior upper dental segment presented mobility. Incisional biopsy revealed malignant neoplasm of glandular epithelial origin, suggestive of solid adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). An immunohistochemical panel was performed, which confirmed the histopathological suspicion. Solid ACC may lead to diagnostic difficulties, since this l...

Conclusion A high prevalence of malnutrition and of other risk factors for cardiovascular disease were observed. Such factors included diabetes Mellitus, smoking and former smoker conditions and were associated with malnutrition. Inaddition, it was found that malnourished individuals were more likely to develop cardiovascular disease within 10 years.RESUMO Objetivo Verificar associa ção entre estado nutricional e fatores de riscos cardiovasculares tradicionais e não tradicionais em pacientes em hemodiálise. Métodos Estudo transversal com 132 pacientes maiores de 18 anos em hemodiál...

This study was to screen strains which had effects on insulin resistance in vitro and explore the possible mechanism. These strains were tested the ability of colonization, hormone release, lipid accumulation, glucose uptake and immunomodulatory. Three strains of Lactobacillus paracasei 1F-20, Lactobacillus fermentum F40-4 and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis F1-7 led to results as follows: (1) survived in the harsh conditions. (2) increased the hormone release of glucagon-like peptide 1(GLP-1), peptide YY (PYY) and up-regulated genes expression of proglucagon gene (GCG), PYY; (3) decreased lipid accumulation, down-r...
