Associations of biochemical changes and maternal traits with mutation 1843 (C>T) in the RYR1 gene as a common cause for porcine stress syndrome

-producing biochemical pathways [ 3 ]. In individuals susceptible to stress, it is generally accepted that increased level of either sarcoplasmic or myofibrillar-free calcium is the biochemical cause of the syndrome [ 11 ]. Thus, the main biochemical expression of PSS is intracellular deficit of Ca 2+ that is mainly stored in terminal cisternae of sarcoplasmic reticulum where it is bound to the calcium-binding protein calsequestrin [ 12 ]. Total plasma calcium concentrations increase during a PSS crisis. Sarcoplasmic proteins also leak from muscle fibers during an acute episode

Proteomics study of the antifibrotic effects of α-mangostin in a rat model of renal fibrosis

have been reported. An investigation of whether AM can attenuate renal fibrosis and aid in processes of protection against and reversal of tissue damage, and the mechanisms of AM action in any such attenuation is warranted. To determine whether AM can disrupt progression of renal fibrosis in a rat model of the disease, histopathology using Sirius Red collagen fiber staining, which allows us to determine the relative amount of collagen fibers in renal tissue, and proteomic analysis of protein marker expression was used to understand better potential mechanisms of AM

Anatomic variations of coronary arteries: origins, branching patterns, and abnormalities

AIA, anterior interventricular artery Discussion Identification of the dominant pattern of coronary arteries has clinical importance particularly from the functional impact of myocardial ischemia [ 3 ]. The prevalence of right dominance had been reported to be 40%–80% [ 3 , 6 , 7 , 8 ], left dominance 6.8%–18.57% [ 7 , 9 , 10 ], and codominance 10%–42.5% [ 8 , 11 , 12 ]. In the present study, the prevalence of right

Epigenetic signature of chronic maternal stress load during pregnancy might be a potential biomarker for spontaneous preterm birth

, including stress response and mRNA processing [ 39 ]. Many other studies examined other types of biomarkers for preterm birth such as cytokines and other metabolites in maternal serum, but biomarkers that examine DNA methylation changes may allow for earlier identification of those at increased risk for preterm birth. DNA methylation changes are also more suitable to screening with next-generation sequencing panels that utilize standardized chemistry, and are able for more rapid and reproducible assessment of multiple biomarkers. However, evidence of preterm birth
