The intestinal microbiota programs diurnal rhythms in host metabolism through histone deacetylase 3
Circadian rhythmicity is a defining feature of mammalian metabolism that synchronizes metabolic processes to day-night light cycles. Here, we show that the intestinal microbiota programs diurnal metabolic rhythms in the mouse small intestine through histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3). The microbiota induced expression of intestinal epithelial HDAC3, which was recruited rhythmically to chromatin, and produced synchronized diurnal oscillations in histone acetylation, metabolic gene expression, and nutrient uptake. HDAC3 also functioned noncanonically to coactivate estrogen-related receptor α, inducing microbiota-dependent r...

What is wound dehiscence?
When all goes well after an operation, the surgical wound heals, as the edges slowly but surely meet each other and are held together by sutures or staples. A possible complication in this process is dehiscence, also known as wound separation. It occurs when the edges of the wound fail to meet, causing the incision closure to give way. Mild dehiscence only affects a single staple or suture, while severe cases can cause the entire incision to pull away and re-open the wound. Here's what patients should know about wound dehiscence treatment and prevention: Wound dehiscence is a possible post-surgery complication. Wound...
