There ’s Only Weak Evidence For Vitamin-D As a COVID-19 Preventative—But Scientists Are Trying to Learn More
To protect himself from COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci has long said he’s skipping hugs and handshakes, wearing a mask, and staying off of planes. Last week, he acknowledged adding another step to protect his health: taking supplements of vitamin-D. “If you are deficient in Vitamin-D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection,” Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview posted on Instagram last week. “So I would not mind recommending—and I do it myself—taking vitamin-D supplements.” However, while spurious claims t...

Direct laser cooling of a symmetric top molecule
Ultracold polyatomic molecules have potentially wide-ranging applications in quantum simulation and computation, particle physics, and quantum chemistry. For atoms and small molecules, direct laser cooling has proven to be a powerful tool for quantum science in the ultracold regime. However, the feasibility of laser-cooling larger, nonlinear polyatomic molecules has remained unknown because of their complex structure. We laser-cooled the symmetric top molecule calcium monomethoxide (CaOCH3), reducing the temperature of ~104 molecules from 22 ± 1 millikelvin to 1.8 ± 0.7 millikelvin in one dimension and state-...

What Is In A Ketogenic Diet?
Discussion Epilepsy is a common problem for the general pediatrician. Its incidence is estimated at 41-87/100,000 children. While many children are controlled with medication, it is also estimated that up to 1/3 will develop drug-resistant epilepsy. Some children may have an identifiable seizure focus that may be amenable to surgery, but many others do not. One option for potential control is a ketogenic diet (KD). Indications for KD usually are for drug-resistant epilepsy including partial and complex seizure patterns as well as some metabolic disorders such as glucose transport 1 deficiency syndrome. It has also found ...

14-3-3 binding creates a memory of kinase action by stabilizing the modified state of phospholamban
The cardiac membrane protein phospholamban (PLN) is targeted by protein kinase A (PKA) at Ser16 and by Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) at Thr17. β-Adrenergic stimulation and PKA-dependent phosphorylation of Ser16 acutely stimulate the sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium pump (SERCA) by relieving its inhibition by PLN. CaMKII-dependent phosphorylation may lead to longer-lasting SERCA stimulation and may sustain maladaptive Ca2+ handling. Here, we demonstrated that phosphorylation at either Ser16 or Thr17 converted PLN into a target for the phosphoadaptor protein 14-3-3 with different affinities. 14-3-3 ...

Heterogeneity in human hippocampal CaMKII transcripts reveals allosteric hub-dependent regulation
Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) plays a central role in Ca2+ signaling throughout the body. In the hippocampus, CaMKII is required for learning and memory. Vertebrate genomes encode four CaMKII homologs: CaMKIIα, CaMKIIβ, CaMKII, and CaMKII. All CaMKIIs consist of a kinase domain, a regulatory segment, a variable linker region, and a hub domain, which is responsible for oligomerization. The four proteins differ primarily in linker length and composition because of extensive alternative splicing. Here, we report the heterogeneity of CaMKII transcripts in three complex samples of human hipp...

Patients can present with oncological emergencies especially if there are mechanical obstruction such as superior vena cava syndrome or cerebral herniation. More commonly are infections due to immunosuppression. Cancer treatment also causes its own myriad of problems that clinicians need to be aware of to diagnosis and treat, but a...

New link between calcium and cardiolipin in heart defects
(Texas A&M AgriLife Communications) To function properly, the heart needs energy from cells' powerhouses, the mitochondria. In turn, mitochondria boost their energy output when calcium levels rise around them, a signal that more energy is needed. A new study shows that a shortage of cardiolipin, a type of fat, in the mitochondrial membrane, prevents calcium from entering mitochondria. The result helps explain heart and muscle weakness in the rare genetic disorder Barth syndrome. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
