Featured Review: Interventions for acute severe asthma attacks in children: an overview of Cochrane Reviews
Interventions for acute severe asthma attacks in children: an overview of Cochrane ReviewsAsthma is a common childhood illness that is caused by narrowing of the small air passages in the lungs. This narrowing is due to swelling and inflammation and to muscles around the air passages becoming tighter. An acute asthma attack results in shortness of breath, cough, wheeze, and chest tightness.When children have an asthma attack, the standard treatment is to give steroids to reduce inflammation and swelling (usually given by mouth) and inhaled medications to relax the muscles in the air passages (called " bronchodilators ...

What Causes Tachycardia?
Discussion Tachycardia is a rapid heart rate that is above normal for age and level of exertion. Tachycardia is common, particularly sinus tachycardia due to normally encountered circumstances such as pain, fever or exercise. It is usually a normal physiologic process but sustained tachycardia often indicates a potentially abnormal underlying cause. Sinus tachycardia has a rapid heart rate with normal P waves and P-R intervals and variations from moment to moment and respiration. Generally it is not over 200 beats/minute. Vagal stimulation can slow the heart rate; this is a gradual slowing, not an abrupt slowing seen in ...

Magnesium protects against sepsis by blocking gasdermin D N-terminal-induced pyroptosis
Hypomagnesemia is a significant risk factor for critically ill patients to develop sepsis, a life-threatening disease with a mortality rate over 25%. Our clinic data analysis showed that hypomagnesemia is associated with a decreased monocyte count in septic patients. At the cellular level, we found that Mg2+ inhibits pyroptosis. Specifically, Mg2+ limits the oligomerization and membrane localization of gasdermin D N-terminal (GSDMD-NT) upon the activation of either the canonical or noncanonical pyroptotic pathway. Mechanistically, we demonstrated that Ca2+ influx is a prerequisite for the function of GSDMD-NT. Mg2+ blocks ...

PE/PPE proteins mediate nutrient transport across the outer membrane of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Mycobacterium tuberculosis has an unusual outer membrane that lacks canonical porin proteins for the transport of small solutes to the periplasm. We discovered that 3,3-bis-di(methylsulfonyl)propionamide (3bMP1) inhibits the growth of M. tuberculosis, and resistance to this compound is conferred by mutation within a member of the proline-proline-glutamate (PPE) family, PPE51. Deletion of PPE51 rendered M. tuberculosis cells unable to replicate on propionamide, glucose, or glycerol. Growth was restored upon loss of the mycobacterial cell wall component phthiocerol dimycocerosate. Mutants in other proline-glutamate (PE)/PPE ...

Structural basis of second-generation HIV integrase inhibitor action and viral resistance

Host resistance factor SLC11A1 restricts Salmonella growth through magnesium deprivation
The pleiotropic host resistance factor SLC11A1 (NRAMP1) defends against diverse intracellular pathogens in mammals by yet-unknown mechanisms. We compared Salmonella infection of coisogenic mice with different SLC11A1 alleles. SLC11A1 reduced Salmonella replication and triggered up-regulation of uptake systems for divalent metal cations but no other stress responses. SLC11A1 modestly diminished iron availability and acutely restricted Salmonella access to magnesium. Growth of Salmonella cells in the presence of SLC11A1 was highly heterogeneous and inversely correlated with expression of the crucial magnesium transporter gen...

Building mountain biodiversity: Geological and evolutionary processes
Mountain regions are unusually biodiverse, with rich aggregations of small-ranged species that form centers of endemism. Mountains play an array of roles for Earth’s biodiversity and affect neighboring lowlands through biotic interchange, changes in regional climate, and nutrient runoff. The high biodiversity of certain mountains reflects the interplay of multiple evolutionary mechanisms: enhanced speciation rates with distinct opportunities for coexistence and persistence of lineages, shaped by long-term climatic changes interacting with topographically dynamic landscapes. High diversity in most tropical mountains i...
