What Looks Like Acrocyanosis?
Discussion Acrocyanosis is a peripheral vascular disease where the skin and mucous membranes have a persistent, painless, deep-bluish color due to decreased oxygenated blood which usually is benign. The deoxygenated blood can be due to a central cause such as cyanotic congenital heart disease or localized problems often due to vasospasm. Hands and feet are the most common areas affected. It is thought that there is “…vasospasm of the cutaneous arteries, and arterioles along with compensatory dilatation in the capillary and post capillary venules caus[ing] cyanosis and sweating.” Palms and soles may or ma...

A key player in cell death moonlights as a mediator of inflammation
(Kanazawa University) Researchers from Kanazawa University have found that gasdermin D, a protein known to be involved in cell death, is crucial for maturation and release of interleukin-1α, an important inflammatory mediator. When the inflammasome is activated, caspase-1 cleaves gasdermin D into two parts: one of these parts travels to the membrane, where it forms a pore that allows calcium influx and activation of calpains, promoting interleukin-1α activation and exit from cells.
