Response of pearl oyster Pinctada fucata martensii to allograft-induced stress from lipid metabolism

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Fish &Shellfish ImmunologyAuthor(s): Chengzhang He, Ruijuan Hao, Yuewen Deng, Chuangye Yang, Xiaodong DuAbstractThe pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata martensii, produces high-quality pearls. During pearl production, excess immune and inflammatory response after transplantation will lead to nucleus rejection, pearl sac formation failure, and death of the host pearl oyster. The hemocyte transcriptome and fatty acid (FA) contents in the adductor muscle before and after transplantation were analyzed to investigate the response of pearl oyster P. f. martensii to allograft-induced stress from lipid metabolism. The hemocyte transcriptome analysis detected 193 lipid metabolism-related genes, such as the elongation of very long-chain FA protein 5, acyl-CoA 6-desaturase, cytochrome P450, phospholipase A2, glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase, and prostaglandin-H2 d-isomerase. Pathway enrichment analyses revealed that these genes were mainly involved in the “biosynthesis of unsaturated FAs,” “FA biosynthesis,” “ARA metabolism,” and “glycerolipid metabolism.” An analysis of FA contents in the adductor muscle indicated no significant difference in the contents of lauric acid, myristic acid, pentadecanoic acid, palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid, heptadecanoic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, vaccenic acid, linoleic acid, arachidic acid, α-linolenic acid, eicosadienoic acid, docos...

CONCLUSION: DAAs are effective and safe in the treatment of recurrent HCV infection in LT recipients with history of HCC. Relapse to pre- and post-LT DAA therapy is associated with post-transplantation HCC recurrence. PMID: 33033569 [PubMed]

LUNG TRANSPLANTATION, either single or bilateral, involves recipient pneumonectomy followed by implantation and reperfusion of the donor lung. Contemporary approaches to lung transplantation require lung isolation to assist recipient pneumonectomy and donor lung implantation.1 Single-lung transplantation requires interruption of ventilation to the side of allograft transplantation, whereas bilateral lung transplantation involves sequential one-lung ventilation (OLV) when performed without mechanical circulatory support.

AbstractBackground and objective The main objective was to evaluate the impact of Hepatitis C Virus treatment with direct-acting antiviral agents on tacrolimus blood levels in recipients of kidney and heart allografts.Method We analysed Hepatitis C Virus infected adult patients who received tacrolimus as immunosuppressive maintenance therapy and received direct-acting antiviral agents treatment in a tertiary hospital with solid transplant multidisciplinary program in Madrid, Spain. Liver and renal function, tacrolimus dose and blood levels were analysed before and 12  weeks after the end of treatment.Results We identi...

This study aimed to analyse different surface antigens on T-cells in a cohort of adult liver patients undergoing LT to determine the influence on ACR using multiparametric flow cytometry functional assay. Thirty patients were monitored at baseline and during 1-year post-transplant. Two groups were established, with (ACR) and without (NACR) acute cellular rejection. Leukocyte, total lymphocyte, percentages of CD4+CD154+ and CD8+CD154+ T-cells, HLA mismatch between recipient-donor and their relation with ACR as well as the acute rejection frequencies were analysed. T-cells were stimulated with concanavalin A (Con-A) and surf...

Purpose of review A precise understanding of the alloimmune risk faced by individual recipients at the time of transplant is an unmet need in transplantation. Although conventional HLA donor–recipient mismatch is too imprecise to fulfil this need, HLA molecular mismatch increases the precision in alloimmune risk assessment by quantifying the difference between donors and recipients at the molecular level. Recent findings Within each conventional HLA mismatch the number, type, and position of mismatched amino acids create a wide range of HLA molecular mismatches between recipients and donors. Multiple different s...

Purpose of review The current understanding of the incidence, predisposing factors, pathophysiology and effective treatment of recurrent glomerulonephritis (RGN) in renal transplants remains at best patchy and at worst, completely lacking. Current reports have been limited by inconsistencies in study design, sample populations and lengths of follow-up. Making sense of the available evidence will provide the tools to support transplant nephrologists in their management of allograft donors and recipients. Recent findings With better survival of renal allografts, RGN has become a dominant factor influencing allograft sur...

Purpose of review To summarize the current state of evidence regarding the role of apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1) genotyping in evaluating donors for kidney transplantation. Recent findings African ancestry is associated with an increased risk of kidney failure following living donation. Moreover, kidney transplants from African ancestry deceased donors have an increased risk of graft failure. Preliminary evidence suggests that APOL1 genotype may mediate at least a portion of this racial variation, with high-risk APOL1 genotypes defined by presence of two renal risk variants (RRVs). A pilot study 136 African ancestry livin...

Purpose of review The clinical significance and treatment of borderline changes are controversial. The lowest detectable margin for rejection on histology is unclear. We review recent evidence about borderline changes and related biomarkers. Recent findings Borderline change (Banff ≥ t1i1) is associated with progressive fibrosis, a greater propensity to form de-novo DSA, and reduced graft survival. Isolated tubulitis appears to have similar kidney allograft outcomes with normal controls, but this finding should be validated in a larger, diverse population. When borderline change was treated, a higher chance of kidn...
