In this study, we examined the effects of oxytocin on the Aβ-induced impairment of synaptic plasticity in mice. To investigate the effect of oxytocin on synaptic plasticity, we prepared acute hippocampal slices for extracellular recording and assessed long-term potentiation (LTP) with perfusion of the Aβ active fragment (Aβ25-35) in the absence and presence of oxytocin. We found that oxytocin reversed the impairment of LTP induced by Aβ25-35 perfusion in the mouse hippocampus. These effects were blocked by pretreatment with the selective oxytocin receptor antagonist L-368,899. Furthermore, the treatment with the ERK inhibitor U0126 and selective Ca2+-permeable AMPA receptor antagonist NASPM completely antagonized the effects of oxytocin. Long Term Low Dose Ethanol Intake Modestly Extends Life in Mice As of the past few years, the long-standing debate over whether moderate alcohol intake has a protective effect on health had appeared to resolve to the conclusion that the observed epidemiology is explained by socioeconomic factors, not by the metabolic effects of molecules such as polyphenols present in wine or other alcoholic drinks. People who engage in more modest alcohol consumption tend to be in the wealthier sections of society, and thus are more health conscious, undertake lifestyle choices, and make better use of avai...

Greg Abbott temporarily suspended hospitals from offering elective procedures in order to ensure more hospital space for suspected Covid-19 cases. Things seemed to return to normal as time went on, but he placed another temporary ban on the procedures in June as the second wave occurred. Now, as restrictions are lifting, St. Luke’s Health hospitals across the Greater Houston area are implementing new protocols to…

I was hoping to post this on that doesn't exist...but still awaiting access. If you don't feel comfortable posting a reply on the general forum I'd really appreciate a DM. Thanks in advance... So I have an offer to work with an ortho group and wonder if I can get some insight from all you wise folks on how to fairly counter what I think is a pretty poor offer... The good: Practice is in a part of town with an excellent payor mix. It's 3 orthos who have broken off from a... What do you all think of this offer to join an ortho group...

Discussion Syphilis is caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum. It is a very old disease that despite understanding the organism and readily available treatment, still causes disease. Syphilis is transmitted sexually. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “[i]n 2018, a total of 35,063 cases of [Primary and Secondary] syphilis were reported in the United States, yielding a rate of 10.8 cases per 100,000 population …. This rate represents a 14.9% increase compared with 2017 (9.4 cases per 100,000 population), and a 71.4% increase compared with 2014 (6.3 cases per 100,000 population).” The incre...

Stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1) is the calcium sensor of the endo/sarcoplasmic reticulum (E/SR), essential to maintain calcium homeostasis. Together with ORAI1, a CRAC channels (calcium release activated channel), STIM1 participates in intracellular calcium stores replenishing through SOCE (store operated calcium entry). The luminal part senses ER intraluminal Ca2+ and the cytosolic part binds ORAI1. Genetic mutations in STIM1 gene have been described in different clinical conditions. Loss of function mutations have been described in patients presenting CRAC channelopathies.
