Anopheles gambiae Ag-STAT, a new insect member of the STAT family, is activated in response to bacterial infection. (1/388)

A new insect member of the STAT family of transcription factors (Ag-STAT) has been cloned from the human malaria vector Anopheles gambiae. The domain involved in DNA interaction and the SH2 domain are well conserved. Ag-STAT is most similar to Drosophila D-STAT and to vertebrate STATs 5 and 6, constituting a proposed ancient class A of the STAT family. The mRNA is expressed at all developmental stages, and the protein is present in hemocytes, pericardial cells, midgut, skeletal muscle and fat body cells. There is no evidence of transcriptional activation following bacterial challenge. However, bacterial challenge results in nuclear translocation of Ag-STAT protein in fat body cells and induction of DNA-binding activity that recognizes a STAT target site. In vitro treatment with pervanadate (vanadate and H2O2) translocates Ag-STAT to the nucleus in midgut epithelial cells. This is the first evidence of direct participation of the STAT pathway in immune responses in insects.  (+info)

Calcium and cAMP are second messengers in the adipokinetic hormone-induced lipolysis of triacylglycerols in Manduca sexta fat body. (2/388)

We have previously shown that stereospecific hydrolysis of stored triacylglycerol by a phosphorylatable triacylglycerol-lipase is the pathway for the adipokinetic hormone-stimulated synthesis of sn -1, 2-diacylglycerol in insect fat body. The current series of experiments were designed to determine whether cAMP and/or calcium are involved in the signal transduction pathway for adipokinetic hormone in the fat body. After adipokinetic hormone treatment, cAMP-dependent protein kinase activity in the fat body rapidly increased and reached a maximum after 20 min, suggesting that adipokinetic hormone causes an increase in cAMP. Forskolin (0.1 micrometer), an adenylate cyclase activator, induced up to a 97% increase in the secretion of diacylglycerol from the fat body. 8Br-cAMP (a membrane-permeable analog of cAMP) produced a 40% increase in the hemolymph diacylglycerol content. Treatment with cholera toxin, which also stimulates adenylate cyclase, induced up to a 145% increase in diacylglycerol production. Chelation of extracellular calcium produced up to 70% inhibition of the adipokinetic hormone-dependent mobilization of lipids. Calcium-mobilizing agents, ionomycin and thapsigargin, greatly stimulated DG production by up to 130%. Finally, adipokinetic hormone caused a rapid increase of calcium uptake into the fat body. Our findings indicate that the action of adipokinetic hormone in mobilizing lipids from the insect fat body involves both cAMP and calcium as intracellular messengers.  (+info)

Urate synthesis in the blood-sucking insect rhodnius prolixus. Stimulation by hemin is mediated by protein kinase C. (3/388)

Hemin is a catalyst of the formation of reactive oxygen species. We proposed that hematophagous insects are exposed to intense oxidative stress because of hemoglobin hydrolysis in their midgut (Petretsky, M. D., Ribeiro, J. M. C., Atella, G. C., Masuda, H., and Oliveira, P. L. (1995) J. Biol. Chem. 270, 10893-10896). We have shown that hemin stimulates urate synthesis in the blood-sucking insect Rhodnius prolixus (Graca-Souza, A. V., Petretsky, J. H., Demasi, M., Bechara, E. J. H., and Oliveira, P. L. (1997) Free Radical Biol. Med. 22, 209-214). Once released by fat body cells, urate accumulates in the hemolymph, where this radical scavenger constitutes an important defense against blood-feeding derived oxidative stress. Incubation of Rhodnius fat bodies with okadaic acid raises the level of urate synthesis, suggesting that urate production can be controlled by protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation. Urate synthesis is stimulated by dibutyryl cAMP and inhibited by N(2((p-bromocinnamil)amino)ethyl)-5-isoquinolinesulfonamide (H-89), an inhibitor of protein kinase A, as well as activated by the protein kinase C activator phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate. In the presence of hemin, however, inhibition of urate synthesis by H-89 does not occur, suggesting that the hemin stimulatory effect is not mediated by protein kinase A. Calphostin C completely inhibits the hemin-induced urate production, suggesting that the triggering of urate antioxidant response depends on protein kinase C activation. This conclusion is reinforced by the observation that in fat bodies exposed to hemin, both protein kinase C activity and phosphorylation of specific endogenous polypeptides are significantly increased.  (+info)

Inducible gene expression of moricin, a unique antibacterial peptide from the silkworm (Bombyx mori). (4/388)

Molecular cloning of cDNAs encoding moricin, a novel antibacterial peptide from the silkworm (Bombyx mori), was performed using a fat-body cDNA library. A reverse-transcription PCR product encoding a partial nucleotide sequence of moricin was used as a probe. Nucleotide sequencing of four positive clones revealed two types of moricin cDNAs designated moricin 1 and 2. cDNAs for moricin 1 and 2 shared 97.2% identity in their nucleotide sequences. Although one amino acid residue (Phe6) of moricin 1 in the putative signal peptide was replaced with Lys6 in moricin 2, amino acid sequences of their mature portions were identical. Moricin gene expression in B. mori larvae injected with Escherichia coli was observed in fat-bodies, haemocytes and the Malpighian tubule, but not in other tissues like the midgut and silk glands. Accumulation of moricin gene transcripts induced by E. coli reached a maximum level 8 h after injection and persisted up to 48 h. It was confirmed that lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and lipid A, which are cell-wall components of E. coli, triggered moricin gene expression. Comparison of gene expression between moricin 1 and 2 by PCR using specific primers indicated that moricin 2 gene was more strongly expressed than moricin 1 gene. A genomic clone encoding moricin 2 was screened from a B. mori genomic library using a moricin cDNA as a probe. Regulatory motifs for gene expression such as nuclear-factor-kappaB-binding-site-like sequence (kappaB site) and nuclear-factor-interleukin-6-binding-site-like sequence (NF-IL-6 site) were found in the 5'-upstream regulatory region. An electrophoretic-mobility-shift assay revealed that there are bacterial LPS-inducible nuclear proteins that can bind to the kappaB site and other sites in the regulatory region.  (+info)

Lipid bodies and lipid body formation in an oleaginous fungus, Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora. (5/388)

Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora accumulates triacylglycerol (TG) in lipid bodies. Studies on lipid transport into lipid bodies are essential for elucidating mechanisms of lipid body formation. We used fluorescent dyes and fluorescent lipid analogs to visualize lipid body formation with a confocal laser scanning microscope. Different sizes of lipid bodies were stained by Nile red, a lipid body marker - one with a diameter of about 1 micrometer and the other with a diameter of about 2-3 micrometers. Lipid bodies matured into larger ones with culture. To metabolically monitor lipid bodies, we used 1-palmitoyl, 2-[5-(5,7-dimethyl boron dipyrromethene difluoride)-1-pentanoyl]-phosphatidic acid (C5-DMB-PA), and C5-DMB-phosphatidylcholine (C5-DMB-PC). These were taken up into fungal cells and incorporated into intracellular organelles at 30 degrees C. C5-DMB-PA was quickly incorporated into lipid bodies while C5-DMB-PC was initially incorporated into internal membranes, presumably endoplasmic reticulum membranes, and fluorescence was then gradually transported into lipid bodies. The transport of fluorescent lipids accompanied their metabolism into diacylglycerol (DG) and TG, which, taken together with the fluorescence distribution, suggested that conversion to TG was not necessary for transport into lipid bodies. It is likely that the synthesized DG was mainly located in lipid bodies and the conversion to TG took place in lipid bodies. C5-DMB-PA and C5-DMB-PC were converted to DG and TG in the membrane and lipid body fractions of this fungus, which agreed with in vivo metabolism of these fluorescent lipids and in vitro enzyme activity related to PA and PC metabolism. These results indicate that transport and metabolism of C5-DMB-PA and C5-DMB-PC represent two different routes for lipid body formation in this fungus.  (+info)

A mosaic analysis in Drosophila fat body cells of the control of antimicrobial peptide genes by the Rel proteins Dorsal and DIF. (6/388)

Expression of the gene encoding the antifungal peptide Drosomycin in Drosophila adults is controlled by the Toll signaling pathway. The Rel proteins Dorsal and DIF (Dorsal-related immunity factor) are possible candidates for the transactivating protein in the Toll pathway that directly regulates the drosomycin gene. We have examined the requirement of Dorsal and DIF for drosomycin expression in larval fat body cells, the predominant immune-responsive tissue, using the yeast site-specific flp/FRT recombination system to generate cell clones homozygous for a deficiency uncovering both the dorsal and the dif genes. Here we show that in the absence of both genes, the immune-inducibility of drosomycin is lost but can be rescued by overexpression of either dorsal or dif under the control of a heat-shock promoter. This result suggests a functional redundancy between both Rel proteins in the control of drosomycin gene expression in the larvae of Drosophila. Interestingly, the gene encoding the antibacterial peptide Diptericin remains fully inducible in the absence of the dorsal and dif genes. Finally, we have used fat body cell clones homozygous for various mutations to show that a linear activation cascade Spaetzle--> Toll-->Cactus-->Dorsal/DIF leads to the induction of the drosomycin gene in larval fat body cells.  (+info)

Serpent regulates Drosophila immunity genes in the larval fat body through an essential GATA motif. (7/388)

Insects possess a powerful immune system, which in response to infection leads to a vast production of different antimicrobial peptides. The regulatory regions of many immunity genes contain a GATA motif in proximity to a kappaB motif. Upon infection, Rel proteins enter the nucleus and activate transcription of the immunity genes. High levels of Rel protein-mediated Cecropin A1 expression previously have been shown to require the GATA site along with the kappaB site. We provide evidence demonstrating that the GATA motif is needed for expression of the Cecropin A1 gene in larval fat body, but is dispensable in adult fat body. A nuclear DNA-binding activity interacts with the Cecropin A1 GATA motif with the same properties as the Drosophila GATA factor Serpent. The GATA-binding activity is recognized by Serpent-specific antibodies, demonstrating their identity. We show that Serpent is nuclear in larval fat body cells and haemocytes both before and after infection. After overexpression, Serpent increases Cecropin A1 transcription in a GATA-dependent manner. We propose that Serpent plays a key role in tissue-specific expression of immunity genes, by priming them for inducible activation by Rel proteins in response to infection.  (+info)

Dual requirement for the EcR/USP nuclear receptor and the dGATAb factor in an ecdysone response in Drosophila melanogaster. (8/388)

The EcR/USP nuclear receptor controls Drosophila metamorphosis by activating complex cascades of gene transcription in response to pulses of the steroid hormone ecdysone at the end of larval development. Ecdysone release provides a ubiquitous signal for the activation of the receptor, but a number of its target genes are induced in a tissue- and stage-specific manner. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved in this developmental modulation of the EcR/USP-mediated pathway. Fbp1 is a good model of primary ecdysone response gene expressed in the fat body for addressing this question. We show here that the dGATAb factor binds to three target sites flanking an EcR/USP binding site in a 70-bp enhancer that controls the tissue and stage specificity of Fbp1 transcription. We demonstrate that one of these sites and proper expression of dGATAb are required for specific activation of the enhancer in the fat body. In addition, we provide further evidence that EcR/USP plays an essential role as a hormonal timer. Our study provides a striking example of the integration of molecular pathways at the level of a tissue-specific hormone response unit.  (+info)

Transcription factor involved in the regulation of the insulin signaling pathway. Consistently activates both the downstream target Thor\d4EBP and the feedback control target InR. Involved in negative regulation of the cell cycle, modulating cell growth and proliferation. In response to cellular stresses, such as nutrient deprivation or increased levels of reactive oxygen species, foxo is activated and inhibits growth through the action of target genes such as Thor. Foxo activated in the adult fat body can regulate lifespan in adults; an insulin peptide itself may function as one secondary messenger of insulin-regulated aging. Also regulates Lip4, homolog of human acid lipases, thereby acting as a key modulator of lipid metabolism by insulin signaling and integrates insulin responses to glucose and lipid homeostasis.
Activated AMPK promotes all the processes needed to maintain a youthful profile. However, AMPK activity fades with age. As previously mentioned, AMPK is activated in the presence of increased AMP. Therefore, to test the anti-aging properties of AMPK, researchers used fruit flies that were genetically engineered to synthesize higher levels of AMP. The research found that the modified flies lived up to one-third longer as a result of increased AMPK activity.

In gonadal tissues, the Piwi-interacting (piRNA) pathway preserves genomic integrity by employing 23 29 nucleotide (nt) small RNAs complexed with argonaute proteins to suppress parasitic mobile sequences of DNA called transposable elements (TEs). Although recent evidence suggests that the piRNA pathway may be present in select somatic cells outside the gonads, the role of a non-gonadal somatic piRNA pathway is not well characterized. Here we report a functional somatic piRNA pathway in the adult Drosophila fat body including the presence of the piRNA effector protein Piwi and canonical 23 29 nt long TE-mapping piRNAs. The piwi mutants exhibit depletion of fat body piRNAs, increased TE mobilization, increased levels of DNA damage and reduced lipid stores. These mutants are starvation sensitive, immunologically compromised and short-lived, all phenotypes associated with compromised fat body function. These findings demonstrate the presence of a functional non-gonadal somatic piRNA pathway in the ...

Wheeler said the 5k is an easier course than the 10k, as the longer distance requires racers to turn around and run up some difficult hills. Other than that, Wheeler said, the course is trouble-free.. "The course is paved, so racers dont have to worry about looking at the ground the whole time for roots and rocks," Wheeler said. "It is, for the most part, flat and runs parallel to the James River, which makes for a gorgeous view on a Saturday morning run.".

Joseph Wheeler of Upper Marlboro MD, was in an automobile accident on June, 23. He woke up at Prince Georges Hospital the following day. Upon asking for something to eat he was told by a nurse that he could not have anything as he was going to surgery. Surgery for a cancerous mass in his chest. Wheeler looked at his hospital bracelet and found it contained someone elses name. After talking to his wife, the Wheelers decided to leave the hospital for his safety. When they were told by a nurse that they could not leave, the couple prepared to leave anyway, as they were determined to exit a bad situation. The nurse called security, and two large, unpleasant men showed up. The men also told Wheeler he could not leave and when Wheeler insisted it was his right to leave he was beaten and sworn at. Before the couple managed to escape the bizarre situation, Wheeler was offered a private room and pain meds of his choice to stay by an administrator and when he turned it down, was threatened for ...

Drosophila stocks and genetics. The w1118 and Oregon R Drosophila strains were used as controls. The null alleles of Cdk8 (w1118; +; FRT80B Cdk8K185/TM3 Sb) and CycC (w1118; +; FRT82B CycCY5/TM3 Sb) were provided by Henri-Marc Bourbon and Muriel Boube (Centre de Biologie du Développement, Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France), and we replaced the balancer chromosome TM3 Sb with TM6B to facilitate the identification of homozygous mutant larvae. The fat body-specific Adh4-Gal4 and FB-Gal4 lines were obtained from Thomas Neufeld (Department of Genetics, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA). The transgenic RNAi lines for Cdk8 and CycC were generated using the pVALIUM10 vector (58). Briefly, an 845-bp fragment of the dCDK8 gene and an 838-bp fragment of the dCycC gene were chosen using the online SnapDragon program developed by the Norbert Perrimon laboratory ( http://www.flyrnai.org/cgi-bin/RNAi_find_primers.pl).

In a bizarre incident, a woman stripped naked and climbed on top of an 18 wheeler in northwest Houston Monday morning, stopping outbound traffic for about two hours.
By Mark Twain. In compliance with the request of a friend of mine, who wrote me from the East, I called on good-natured, garrulous old Simon Wheeler, and inquired after my friends friend, Leonidas W. Smiley, as requested to do, and I hereunto append the result. I have a lurking suspicion that Leonidas W. Smiley is a myth; and that my friend never knew such a personage; and that he only conjectured that if I asked old Wheeler about him, it would remind him of his infamous Jim Smiley, and he would go to work and bore me to death with some exasperating reminiscence of him as long and as tedious as it should be useless to me. If that was the design, it succeeded.. I found Simon Wheeler dozing comfortably by the barroom stove of the dilapidated tavern in the decayed mining camp of Angels, and I noticed that he was fat and bald-headed, and had an expression of winning gentleness and simplicity upon his tranquil countenance. He roused up, and gave me good-day. I told him a friend had commissioned me ...
Can you put it on the scales, please? kamagra holland frei kaufen In the fifth, Byrd lost a fly ball giving David Lough double. He was moved to second by Miguel Tejadas sacrifice bunt and then pinch-run for by Jarrod Dyson, who scored on a wild pitch that Wheeler bounced in front of the plate. Wheeler then walked Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon reached on Byrds error, missing the ball again in the sun. They both scored on Lorenzo Cains line drive to right, which Byrd bobbled. Cain took second on Wheelers second wild pitch of the inning. After walking Moustakas, and the runners advanced on a passed ball, he got Alcides Escobar to fly out to center. He intentionally walked George Kottaras to get out of the inning by striking out Ervin Santana.. ...
Abstract Due to the small number of two wheelers in Europe and their seasonal use, their contribution to the total emissions has been underestimated for a long time. With the implementation of the new emission regulation 168/2013 [3] for type approval coming into force 2016, the two wheeler sector is facing major changes. The need to fulfil more stringent emission limits and the high demand on the durability of after treatment systems result in an engine control system that is getting more complex and therewith more expensive. Especially the low cost two wheelers with small engine capacities will be affected by increasing costs which cannot be covered by the actual competitive product price. Therefore, new vehicle concepts have to be introduced on the market. A vehicle concept of a plug in hybrid electric city scooter with range extender as well as the range extender itself have already been published in SAE Papers 2011-32-0592 [1] and 2012-32-0083 [2 ...
Before Total Care Services, Inc., there was Wheeler & Associates Inc.. Wheeler & Associates, Inc. was established 1987 in an endeavor to be responsive to the rapidly evolving sociological challenges facing the US healthcare industry in the 1980s. Spiraling costs a diminution of the quality of care resulting from complex service delivery; and an emerging awareness that smaller community-based services were more viable for the treatment of long-term physical, mental and developmental disabilities made it apparent that more innovative methods of providing services were necessary.. Notable foresight and awareness of the a myriad of issues facing the healthcare management industry served as a catalyst for Drucella Ndoye, MSW (Executive Director and founder of Wheeler & Associates, Inc.) to conceptualize a series of clinical and psycho-social treatment models designed to provide a network of supportive services to individuals presenting an array of physiological, mental and emotional challenges.

The Arizona Diamondbacks took Wheeler in the 5th round of the 2009 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Hal Kurtzman and proceeded to tear the cover off the ball in 2009 for the Yakima Bears (.363/.461/.538, 20 2B, 44 R, 37 BB in 64 G) and South Bend Silver Hawks (.345/.472/.552 in 8 G). Despite only playing half the season, he was named Arizonas minor league position player of the year. He led the Northwest League in OBP (30 points ahead of runner-up Vince Belnome), was second in average (.003 behind Jason Ogata), second in slugging (.044 behind Gerardo Avila), led in OPS (35 points ahead of Ogata), tied for third in doubles and tied for 4th in hits (85, even with Nathan Freiman). He won NWL All-Star honors at first base and was presumably a good MVP candidate (Drew Biery won that award). Baseball America listed him as the NWLs 6th-best prospect, right behind another Wheeler (Tim Wheeler) and right ahead of Robbie Ross. They also listed him as Arizonas 9th-best prospect entering 2010. ...
SAN FRANCISCO -- Pitching at AT&T Park was Zack Wheelers destiny since the Giants selected him in the first round (sixth overall) of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.. At the time, of course, the Giants believed that Wheeler would perform for them, not against them.. Wheeler, who joined the New York Mets starting rotation last month, will oppose the Giants in Wednesdays series finale. The twist in Wheelers career occurred at the Trade Deadline in 2011, when the Giants sent the right-hander to the Mets for right fielder Carlos Beltran. Needing a productive hitter to further its bid to return to the postseason, San Francisco was willing to part with Wheeler, the organizations top pitching prospect.. "You try to make deals happen so you can win," Wheeler said Monday. "No hard feelings or anything; its going to happen. Its probably going to happen again sometime.". Though Wheeler, 23, harbors no animosity toward the Giants, hed still like to haunt them with what-if thoughts.. "I definitely ...

In the early morning on Feb. 15, 2009, plaintiffs decedent John Reilly, 64, a political aide, was a patron at the Astor Bar and Grill in Jersey City when he became involved in an altercation with another customer, Donald Wheeler. Reilly collapsed several minutes after the altercation and was taken to Jersey City Medical Center in a comatose state. He never regained consciousness and was removed from life support on Feb. 25. An autopsy found that Reilly succumbed to severe heart disease after collapsing. The decedents estranged wife, Genevive Reilly, acting on behalf of his estate, sued Wheeler; The Astor Bar and Grill Inc.; bartender Michael Nolan; and Jalry Corp., the owner of Jack Millers Pub in Jersey City, where Wheeler allegedly consumed alcohol before going to Astor Bar. Jalry was dismissed before trial. Plaintiffs counsel alleged that Reilly was the victim of an assault by Wheeler that led to his death, noting that witnesses saw Wheeler punch Reilly in the mouth.

As Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler come off of disappointing and injury-riddled seasons, their futures with the Mets remain hazy. Though both were highly-touted and, in Harveys case, experienced a significant run of exceptional success, theres a chance that at least one of them will be pitching out of the bullpen by the end of next season.. Rumblings about Wheeler pitching out of the bullpen started almost as soon as his major league career. As a flamethrower with difficulty pitching deep into games, it seemed to be a natural fit, though the promise of a young pitcher reaching his full potential as a starter was enough to keep him in the rotation even after his 2015 Tommy John surgery. But promise doesnt last forever, and the 27-year-old has yet to show he can overcome his deficiencies as a starter..

The modeling of fluid/structure interaction is of growing importance in both energy and environmental applications. Because of the inherent complexity, these problems must be simulated on parallel machines in order to achieve high resolution. The purpose of this research was to investigate techniques for coupling flow and geomechanics in porous media that are suitable for parallel computation. In particular, our main objective was to develop an iterative technique which can be as accurate as a fully coupled model but which allows for robust and efficient coupling of existing complex models (software). A parallel linear elastic module was developed which was coupled to a three phase three-component black oil model in IPARS (Integrated Parallel Accurate Reservoir Simulator). An iterative de-coupling technique was introduced at each time step. The resulting nonlinear iteration involved solving for displacements and flow sequentially. Rock compressibility was used in the flow model to account for ...
On July 1, 2009, our client, Donriel Borne, was driving an 18-wheeler when traffic came to a stop on I-55 in Memphis, TN, near Crump Boulevard. Donriel stopped his truck but the 18-wheeler behind him was following too closely and rear-ended him. At the time of the wreck, Donriel was 30 years old. Donriel sought medical attention for back pain following the wreck but continued to work to support his family. He and his family doctor believed that the pain would eventually go away. It never did. Ultimately an MRI was performed that revealed a serious injury to his lower back and spine, which required him to stop working. His injuries are permanent and leave him in constant daily pain. The truck that hit Donriel was owned and operated by Celadon Transportation Services, Inc., a trucking company based in Indiana. Instead of taking responsibility for the wreck and Donriels injuries, Celadon launched a no holds barred, scorched earth, frivolous defense. Celadon not only denied negligence, but actually ...
Now- and Update about how Baby B is different from J Surgically! I know you have all be waiting with baited breath to find out how our trip to the Urologist went. Well, Dr Cartwright remembered us. He actually walked in with both Baby B and Js charts and after the Hellos and other pleasantries he said "So you are the family that caused all the excitement a couple of years ago" and I said Yes. It was a very quick very nice visit with the doctor. He took a look at Baby B and explained to me that B has Megameatus which is the least severe type of hypospadias. (I then quipped that I am getting better at making little boy parts, the doctor chuckled and told me "Yes, Yes you are!") He said that we will most likely want to have it fixed and that it could be fixed surgically. He explained that the Meatus is the name of the opening of the Urethra, I didnt know that. Then he told me something I did know, Mega means Big. The main problem with Megameatus is this, think of a garden hose, when you turn on ...
The inspiration for this project comes from Strong at the Broken Places by Richard M Cohen.. Cohen, an Emmy award winning American journalist and a man living with MS for more than forty years, chronicled the lives of five citizens of sickness. He provided the platform for them to share the hope and despair they live with on a daily basis. He allowed them to tell their real story - not the politically correct, sanitised version of it.. For anyone who is interested, I hope to do the same in Australia. Because those of us with chronic disease represent a community within the broader community. And this community - regardless of which disease we have - is forced to contemplate scenarios that the generally healthy do not. Alzheimers, Huntingtons, Lou Gehrigs, Crohns, Parkinsons… Living with one of these diseases forces one to consider what was previously taboo. This is a lonely experience, one that is not easy to talk about even with loved ones.. I hope to talk to people with chronic ...

An implant structure for use in pulling two soft body tissue areas closer together in a patient (e.g., two points along or adjacent to the patients mitral valve annulus) includes at least two tissue anchor structures that are respectively implantable into the two tissue areas. A tether structure links the two tissue anchors and can be shortened and held in that condition by a cinch structure. Bracing structures are used between the anchors and the tether to help keep the longitudinal axes of the anchors transverse to the tether axis even when the tether is under tension. The tether may be sheathed in a cushioning sleeve to help protect adjacent tissue from erosion by the tether.

The ultrastructure of the fat body cells (trophocytes) of the last larval instar of Pachycondyla (= Neoponera) villosa is presented. The cytoplasm is restricted to the cell periphery and to the smaller strips among the vacuoles, protein granules, lipid droplets, and around the nucleus. Cytochemically, the presence of basic amino acids in the protein granules and in the nuclei was observed by using the ethanolic phosphotungstic acid technique (EPTA). The lipid droplets stained for unsaturated lipids. This result was further confirmed by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, where the unsaturated fatty acids were identified as oleic and linoleic acids together with saturated fatty acids such as palmitic and stearic acid. Carbohydrates (glycogen) were also detected in the fat body. The glycogen is present as β particles distributed among the lipid droplets and sometimes attached to them.
Locust adipokinetic hormone stimulates lipid mobilization in Manduca sexta.: Adipokinetic hormone, a decapeptide isolated from the locust, stimulates mobilizati
Four locustatachykinins (LomTK I-IV) were identified in about equal amounts in extracts of corpora cardiaca of locusts, using reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography and radioimmunoassay with synthetic LomTK I-IV as standards. Brain extracts also contained the four isoforms in roughly equimolar concentrations. Retrograde tracing of the nervi corporis cardiaci II (NCC II) in vitro with Lucifer yellow in combination with LomTK immunocytochemistry revealed that about half of the secretomotor neurons in the lateral part of the protocerebrum projecting into the glandular lobe of the corpora cardiaca (CCG) contain LomTK-immunoreactive material. Since the four LomTKs are present in the CCG, these four or five neurons in each hemisphere are likely to contain colocalized LomTK I-IV. The role of two of the LomTKs in the regulation of the release of adipokinetic hormones (AKHs) from the adipokinetic cells in the CCG in the locust was investigated. Experiments performed in vitro showed that ...

Malpighian tubules are slender tubes normally found in the posterior regions of arthropod alimentary canals. Each tubule consists of a single layer of cells that is closed off at the distal end with the proximal end joining the alimentary canal at the junction between the midgut and hindgut. Most tubules are normally highly convoluted. The number of tubules varies between species although most occur in multiples of two. Tubules are usually bathed in hemolymph and are in proximity to fat body tissue. They contain actin for structural support and microvilli for propulsion of substances along the tubules. Malpighian tubules in most insects also contain accessory musculature associated with the tubules which may function to mix the contents of the tubules or expose the tubules to more hemolymph. The insect orders, Thysanura, Dermaptera and Thysanoptera do not possess these muscles and Collembola and Hemiptera:Aphididae completely lack a Malpighian tubule system.. ...
