Gutting EPA’s Budget And Staff Would Endanger The Health Of Millions Of Americans
During his nationally televised speech before Congress on Tuesday night, President Trump vowed to “promote clean air and clean water.” Is that right, Mr. President? Then why is your administration proposing to slash as much as 25 percent of the Environmental Protection Agency’s current budget and cut its staff by 20 percent? That would cripple environmental safeguards, jeopardize public health, and put future generations at risk.

Labetalol in acute cocaine toxicity: is it safe?
3 out of 5 stars Acute Toxicity from Topical Cocaine for Epistaxis: Treatment with Labetalol. Richards JR et al. J Emerg Med 2017 Mar;52:311-313. Abstract There has long been a debate among toxicologists — still unresolved — as to whether it is safe to use a beta-blocker to treat cocaine-related hypertension and tachycardia. The (theoretical) concern is that since cocaine is both an α- and a β-agonist, blocking the β-receptors could lead to unopposed α stimulation with increased severe hypertension. Some authors contend that in this setting, labetalol would be safe since it blocks bot...

Did the nerve agent VX kill Kim Jong Nam?
Last night Malaysian authorities announced that they identified the nerve agent VX taken off the face of Kim Jong Nam, who was murdered on February 13 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. As the History Channel video above indicates, nerve agents are potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitors that utilize the same mechanism as organophosphate insecticides such as parathion. Conceptually, the effect of VX exposure is simple: wherever in the body acetylcholine acts as a neurotransmitter, nerve agents cause unregulated, chaotic activity. There are generally 3 such sites: muscarinic sites: connections between ner...

[Report] The cytotoxic Staphylococcus aureus PSM α3 reveals a cross-α amyloid-like fibril
Amyloids are ordered protein aggregates, found in all kingdoms of life, and are involved in aggregation diseases as well as in physiological activities. In microbes, functional amyloids are often key virulence determinants, yet the structural basis for their activity remains elusive. We determined the fibril structure and function of the highly toxic, 22-residue phenol-soluble modulin α3 (PSMα3) peptide secreted by Staphylococcus aureus. PSMα3 formed elongated fibrils that shared the morphological and tinctorial characteristics of canonical cross-β eukaryotic amyloids. However, the crystal structure ...

Temperature-induced cell death is thought to be due to protein denaturation, but the determinants of thermal sensitivity of proteomes remain largely uncharacterized. We developed a structural proteomic strategy to measure protein thermostability on a proteome-wide scale and with domain-level resolution. We applied it to Escherichia coli, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Thermus thermophilus, and human cells, yielding thermostability data for more than 8000 proteins. Our results (i) indicate that temperature-induced cellular collapse is due to the loss of a subset of proteins with key functions, (ii) shed light on the evolutionary...
