Identification and three-dimensional reconstruction of oxytocin receptor expressing astrocytes in the rat and mouse brain
Right here, we current a step-by-step protocol for three-dimensional reconstruction of astrocyte morphology, utilized to the central amygdala oxytocin receptor-expressing astrocytes. This contains RNAse-free perfusion, mixture of RNAscope and immunohistochemistry, and confocal imaging. This protocol supplies detailed details about tissue dealing with and a complete description of the RNAScope approach to label rat and mouse…Read More
A Gene Cluster That Encodes Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors Contributes to Bacterial Persistence and Antibiotic Tolerance in Burkholderia thailandensis.
Persister cells are genetically identical variants in a bacterial population that have phenotypically modified their physiology to survive environmental stress. In bacterial pathogens, persisters are able to survive antibiotic treatment and reinfect patients in a frustrating cycle of chronic infection. To better define core persistence mechanisms for therapeutics development, we performed transcriptomics analyses of Burkholderia thailandensis…Read More
Tin oxide nanoparticles trigger the formation of amyloid β oligomers/protofibrils and underlying neurotoxicity as a marker of Alzheimer’s diseases
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is known as one of the most common forms of dementia, and oligomerization of amyloid β (Aβ42) peptides can result in the onset of AD. Tin oxide nanoparticles (SnO2 NPs) showed several applications in biomedical fields can trigger unwanted interaction with proteins and inducing protein aggregation. Herein, we synthesized SnO2 NPs via the hydrothermal…Read More
Keratohyalin granules were discovered in the mid-19th century in cells that terminally differentiate to form the outer, cornified layer of the epidermis. The first indications of the composition of these structures emerged in the 1960s from a histochemical stain for histidine, followed by radioautographic evidence of a high incidence of histidine incorporation into newly synthesized…Read More
Label-free real-time detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin using a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor.
We have developed a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor with a differential detection method for point-of-care medical diagnostics. To experimentally demonstrate its label-free real-time biosensing capability, we performed the detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin (BSA). Streptavidin is introduced into the optical cavity structure and immobilized on 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) coated surface. After rinsing out unbound streptavidin…Read More
Green synthesis of zinc oxide particles with apple-derived compounds and their application as catalysts in the transesterification of methyl benzoates
ZnO nanoparticles (ZnONPs) were successfully synthesized using bravo-de-esmolfe apple extract in aqueous medium at room temperature. ZnO microparticles, prepared with a pure apple phytochemical, quercetin (ZnOq), or without phytochemicals (ZnO) were studied for comparative purposes. The re-use of apple waste for highly efficient catalyst production, based on green synthetic routes, can be added to the…Read More
Utilization of a direct sandwich ELISA kit for rapid diagnosis of adenovirus hemorrhagic cystitis in a patient with adult T-cell leukemia
We report on a case of adenovirus hemorrhagi cystitis that developed in a 49-year-old woman during intensive chemotherapy for adult T-cell leukemia. Although rapid etiologic diagnosis is essential for the effective management of viral hemorrhagic cystitis, the isolation of adenovirus from urine is often too time-cousuming. We detected the adenovirus antigen in the patient’s urine…Read More
No research has comprehensively evaluated the efficiency of 28S nrDNA and ITS sequencing, industrial biochemical check kits, MALDI-TOF MS platforms, and the rising rep-PCR DNA fingerprinting know-how utilizing a cohort of yeast strains collected from a medical microbiology laboratory. On this research, utilizing 71 clinically vital yeast isolates (excluding Candida albicans) collected from a single…Read More
