The Yaba-like disease viruses (YLDV) are members of the Yatapoxvirus family and have double-stranded DNA genomes. The E3L protein, which is essential for pathogenesis in the vaccinia virus, consists of two domains: an N-terminal Z-DNA binding domain and a C-terminal RNA binding domain. The crystal structure of the E3L orthologue of YLDV (yabZα<SUB>E3L</SUB>) bound to Z-DNA revealed that the overall structure of yabZα<SUB>E3L</SUB> and its interaction with Z-DNA are very similar to those of hZα<SUB>ADAR1</SUB>. Here we have performed NMR hydrogen exchange experiments on the complexes between yabZα<SUB>E3L</SUB> and d(CGCGCG)<SUB>2</SUB> with a variety of protein-to-DNA molar ratios. This study revealed that yabZα<SUB>E3L</SUB> could efficiently change the B-form helix of the d(CGCGCG)<SUB>2</SUB> to left-handed Z-DNA via the active-mono B-Z transition pathway like hZα<SUB>ADAR1</SUB>1.

<P>We report the identification of novel highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses of subtype H5N6, Glade 23.4.4, that presumably originated from China. In addition, reassortant strains with Eurasian lineage low pathogenic avian influenza viruses were isolated in wild birds and poultry in South Korea. The emergence of these novel H5N6 viruses and their circulation among bird populations are of great concern because of the potential for virus dissemination with intercontinental wild bird migration.

<P><B>Abstract</B></P> <P>In this paper, a spiral-shaped SU-8 cantilever with biocompatibility was proposed to monitor the changes of cardiac contraction in response to injection of drug in real time. The cantilever comprises a thick quadrate body and a filmy spiral cantilever with micro-grooves and gold patterns on the top of its surface. The longitudinally patterned micro-grooves facilitate the aligned growth of cardiomyocytes in order to increase the contraction force. In addition, the spiral shape increases the cantilever’s effective length and decreases its spring constant, which means its bending displacement can be increased for the same force as compared to that observed in a conventional rectangular cantilever. The bending displacement of the spiral SU-8 cantilever induced by the contraction of cardiomyocytes can be precisely measured at the nanoscale using a homemade laser-based measurement system. The displacement in the spiral SU-8 cantilever without micro-grooves was much greater than that in the case of traditional rectangular SU-8 cantilevers. The displacement produced by the spiral cantilever with grooves is 240% greater than that without grooves. Following preliminary experiments, cardiac drugs including Verapamil, Quinidine, Lidocaine, E-4031, and Bay K 8644 were used to evaluate their side effects on cardiomyocytes. Quantitative analysis of measurements shows that not only Verapamil and Quinidine but also Lidocaine and E-4031 treatment can decrease the cell beating frequency, and both the Verapamil and Lidocaine treatment can decrease the cell contraction force. Furthermore, Bay K 8644 assay results indicate that it can decrease the contraction force and increase the beating frequency of cardiomyocytes.</P> <P><B>Highlights</B></P> <P> <UL> <LI> Spiral cantilever integrated with micro-grooves is proposed for a real time monitoring of cardiac contractibility. </LI> <LI> Home-made measurement system is developed to precisely measure the contractibility of cardiomyocytes at the nanoscale. </LI> <LI> Five different kind of drugs have been employed for the preliminary study of drug-induced cardiac toxicity. </LI> <LI> Spiral cantilever arrays are expected to be applied as a new method to support for the drawbacks of conventional methods. </LI> </UL> </P>
Calbindin-D9k (CaBP-9k) is a high affinity calcium binding protein that is highly expressed in the duodenum, kidney, uterus, and pituitary glands. Previous studies have shown that CaBP-9k expression is regulated by several steroid hormones, such as 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, glucocorticoids, 17β-estradiol (E2), and progesterone (P4), in a tissue-specific manner. However, the promoter elements that mediate transcriptional regulation by these steroid hormones are not clearly understood, mainly due to the lack of an appropriate cell line expressing CaBP-9k. Recently it was shown that CaBP-9k was constitutively expressed in the rat pituitary gland, and is expressed in an E2-dependent manner in a pituitary gland tumor-derived cell line, GH3. In the current study, we examined the activity of the estrogen responsive element (ERE) in rat CaBP-9k gene in GH3 cells, using a luciferase gene reporter assay, electrophoretic mobility shift assay, and mutagenesis. A nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) binding site in the CaBP-9k promoter region was identified (nucleotides -848 to -834 from the transcriptional start site), and we demonstrated that addition of an NF-κB blocker to GH3 cells reduced E2-induced CaBP-9k transcription. In the present study, we further showed a previously reported imperfect ERE (nucleotides +51 to +65) between exon I and intron A of CaBP-9k, indicating that the interaction of estrogen receptor (ER) α with this region is involved in the regulation of CaBP-9k promoter activity and its expression. Taken together, these results suggest that in GH3 cells, both the classical ERα-ERE pathway and a non-classical pathway involving NF-κB are involved in E2-mediatd regulation of CaBP-9k expression in the pituitary gland.
<P><I>Background:</I> Proteolytic shedding of the ectodomain of a variety of transmembrane proteins, including cell-to-cell adhesion molecules, has been observed in solid cancers. We have investigated whether extracellular cleavage of E-cadherin mediated by matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) is involved in hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) induced in vitro invasion in stomach cancer cells. <I>Methods:</I> The effects of HGF on the expression of E-cadherin/β-catenin and MMP-7 at both the protein and mRNA levels were assessed in stomach cancer cells, NUGC-3 and MKN-28, and in cells in which the expression of MMP-7 was downregulated by transfection with a MMP-7 short hairpin RNA plasmid. <I>Results:</I> Treatment with HGF increased the extracellular cleavage of E-cadherin and the release of MMP-7 and reduced the level of E-cadherin in a dose- and time-dependent manner. HGF treatment repressed the phosphorylation of β-catenin in a Triton-soluble fraction, but enhanced this phosphorylation in a Triton-insoluble fraction. The association of E-cadherin with β-catenin was decreased by HGF treatment in the Triton-soluble fraction. In addition, treatment of MMP-7 short hairpin RNA transfected NUGC-3 cells with HGF resulted in no extracellular cleavage of E-cadherin and also decreased the in vitro cell invasion. <I>Conclusions:</I> These results suggest that incubation with HGF mediated the release of MMP-7, resulting in extracellular cleavage of E-cadherin from stomach cancer cells. This might be a key mechanism in HGF-induced in vitro invasion and metastasis.</P><P>Copyright © 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel</P>
Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common type of thyroid malignancy, and CD56, a neural cell adhesion molecule, is typically down-regulated in almost all cases of papillary thyroid carcinoma. Homeobox B9 is a transcription factor, belongs to the products of the homeobox transcription factor gene family, and has been known to regulate transcription of CD56 and to promote tumorigenicity and metastasis in some malignancies. In this study, we investigated the expression and relation of homeobox B9 to reduced expression of CD56 in papillary thyroid carcinomas and also a relationship between their expression and clinicopathologic parameters. Therefore, we performed CD56 and homeobox B9 immunohistochemical staining on 72 papillary thyroid carcinomas and Western blotting on 31 papillary thyroid carcinomas. CD56 protein staining revealed that it was reduced or absent in 65 papillary thyroid carcinomas (90.3%) and was related to silencing of homeobox B9 (77.8%) (P = .003). The loss of homeobox B9 expression was associated with extrathyroidal extension (P = .002), pathologic stage of tumor (P = .01), and age older than 45 years (P = .032). However, the CD56 staining did not reveal any significant relationship with clinicopathologic features (P > .05). In conclusion, reduced expression of CD56 is associated with homeobox B9 in papillary thyroid carcinomas. Furthermore, silencing of homeobox B9 is more common in older age and is linked to extrathyroidal extension and advanced pathologic stage of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
Purpose: This study investigated the difference of menopausal knowledge, attitude between nursing students and non-nursing students. The relationships of the level of menopausal knowledge and attitude and the level of closeness to mother were investigated. Methods: A correlational descriptive design was used with a convenience sample. The survey was conducted with 206 female college students, 106 nursing and 100 non-nursing students, between September 1 and September 14, 2014. The instruments were the Knowledge of Menopause scale, the Menopausal Attitude Measurement scale, and the Level of Closeness to Mother scale. SPSS v22.0 is used to statistical analysis of descriptive statistics, independent t-tests, correlation and χ2-tests. Results: The difference in menopause knowledge between nursing students and non-nursing students is statistically significant (t=6.085, p<001). Nursing and non-nursing college students’ menopause knowledge had a positive relationship with attitude (r = 0.241, p<001). In closeness to mother, there is no significant difference was shown between nursing and non-nursing college students, even though the levels of menopause knowledge are different (t=1.336, p=.183). Conclusion: Results showed having menopausal knowledge positively influences students’ attitudes about menopause. Educators should develop programs imparting menopausal knowledge for non-nursing college students to increase positive menopausal attitude.
