The mitochondrial tRNAGly T10003C mutation may not be associated with diabetes mellitus

mutation and hearing loss [ 9 ]. Distinguishing the polymorphisms and disease associated mtDNA mutations is important, both for clinical physician and genetic scientists. In the current investigation, we evaluated the association between a recent reported mt-tRNA Gly T10003C mutation and DM. First of all, we performed a systematic database search for the frequency of this mutation; second, we also reassessed the conservation index (CI) of the T10003C mutation, and finally, we performed a case-control study to screen this mutation in 500 unrelated DM patients and 300

Variants in mitochondrial tRNA gene may not be associated with thyroid carcinoma

, because failure to do so will inevitably lead to poor diagnosis and genetic advice. In this study, we reassess seven reported mttRNA variants: tRNA Asp G7521A, tRNA Arg T10411C and T10463C, tRNA Leu(CUN) A12308G, tRNA Ile G4292C and C4312T, tRNA Ala T5655C, in clinical manifestation of thyroid cancer. First, we carried out database searches for the allele frequencies of these variants, and then the genotype to phenotype association of these variants. Moreover, we performed the phylogenetic conservation analysis of these variants. We further utilized the

Acute respiratory distress syndrome: continuing challenges

a university hospital, the 28-day mortality of ARDS in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) is high. It was also found that the average tidal volume and fluid balance are greater than the protective limits. Data elsewhere suggest that a conservative fluid management strategy that aims to minimize or eliminate positive fluid balance is desirable. Conservation of fluid management in adults with respiratory distress syndrome can improve cognitive outcomes and long-term neuropsychological function in survivors of acute lung injury [ 8 ]. Thus
