The Caenorhabditis elegans mel-11 myosin phosphatase regulatory subunit affects tissue contraction in the somatic gonad and the embryonic epidermis and genetically interacts with the Rac signaling pathway. (1/189)

Caenorhabditis elegans embryonic elongation is driven by cell shape changes that cause a contraction of the epidermal cell layer enclosing the embryo. We have previously shown that this process requires a Rho-associated kinase (LET-502) and is opposed by the activity of a myosin phosphatase regulatory subunit (MEL-11). We now extend our characterization and show that mel-11 activity is required both in the epidermis during embryonic elongation and in the spermatheca of the adult somatic gonad. let-502 and mel-11 reporter gene constructs show reciprocal expression patterns in the embryonic epidermis and the spermatheca, and mutations of the two genes have opposite effects in these two tissues. These results are consistent with let-502 and mel-11 mediating tissue contraction and relaxation, respectively. We also find that mel-11 embryonic inviability is genetically enhanced by mutations in a Rac signaling pathway, suggesting that Rac potentiates or acts in parallel with the activity of the myosin phosphatase complex. Since Rho has been implicated in promoting cellular contraction, our results support a mechanism by which epithelial morphogenesis is regulated by the counteracting activities of Rho and Rac.  (+info)

Differential and inefficient splicing of a broadly expressed Drosophila erect wing transcript results in tissue-specific enrichment of the vital EWG protein isoform. (2/189)

In this report, we document an unusual mode of tissue-enriched gene expression that is primarily mediated by alternative and inefficient splicing. We have analyzed posttranscriptional regulation of the Drosophila erect wing gene, which provides a vital neuronal function and is essential for the formation of certain muscles. Its predominant protein product, the 116-kDa EWG protein, a putative transcriptional regulator, can provide all known erect wing-associated functions. Moreover, consistent with its function, the 116-kDa protein is highly enriched in neurons and is also observed transiently in migrating myoblasts. In contrast to the protein distribution, we observed that erect wing transcripts are present in comparable levels in neuron-enriched heads and neuron-poor bodies of adult Drosophila. Our analyses shows that erect wing transcript consists of 10 exons and is alternatively spliced and that a subset of introns are inefficiently spliced. We also show that the 116-kDa EWG protein-encoding splice isoform is head enriched. In contrast, bodies have lower levels of transcripts that can encode the 116-kDa protein and greater amounts of unprocessed erect wing RNA. Thus, the enrichment of the 116-kDa protein in heads is ensured by tissue-specific alternative and inefficient splicing and not by transcriptional regulation. Furthermore, this regulation is biologically important, as an increased level of the 116-kDa protein outside the nervous system is lethal.  (+info)

Interferon-gamma contributes to the normalcy of murine pregnancy. (3/189)

Uterine natural killer (uNK) cells are transient, large, heavily granulated, maternal lymphocytes present on the mesometrial side of the pregnant mouse uterus. These cells contribute to normal implantation site development. Cytokine production, particularly interferon (IFN)-gamma, is a major function of most NK cell subsets. In this study, uNK cells were assessed for IFN-gamma production. Local concentrations of IFN-gamma were measured in the mesometrial regions of murine implantation sites between Days 6 and 16 of gestation. IFN-gamma was detected by ELISA at all days studied in a random-bred (CD1) and an inbred (BALB/c) strain of immune-competent mouse and in two immune-deficient strains, SCID (NK(+), T(-), B(-)) and tgepsilon26 (NK(-), T(-), B(+)). Concentrations of IFN-gamma per implantation site peaked at Day 10 of gestation in NK(+) strains but were low and relatively constant in NK(-) mice. To evaluate the functions of IFN-gamma at murine implantation sites, pregnancy was studied in homozygously mated IFN-gamma(-/-) and IFN-gammaRalpha(-/-) mice and their congenic controls. Primiparous but not multiparous IFN-gamma(-/-) mice experienced significant fetal loss. Primiparous IFN-gammaRalpha(-/-) carried full litters to term. Implantation site pathology was demonstrated in both strains of gene-deleted mice by light microscopy and ultrastructurally. This included elevated numbers of uNK cells that contained fewer and smaller granules and, after Day 10 of gestation, progressive necrosis and loss of decidua. The presence of a fetus able to produce IFN-gamma did not modify the phenotype of pregnant IFN-gamma(-/-) mice. This study indicates that during murine pregnancy, uNK cells are the main source of IFN-gamma on the mesometrial side of the uterus and that IFN-gamma contributes to normal health of the midgestational decidua. Furthermore, evidence is presented that IFN-gamma-producing cells exist in mesometrial regions of implantation sites that are neither NK nor T cells.  (+info)

Expression of the insulin-like growth factor-1 gene and its receptor in preimplantation mouse embryos; is it a marker of embryo viability? (4/189)

Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of insulin-like growth factors (IGF) in mouse preimplantation development. We examined IGF-1 and IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) gene expression in a single blastomere of an early mouse embryo and compared it with subsequent embryo development in culture. Fertilized eggs and 2-cell embryos were obtained by tubal flushing in superovulated and mated female mice. Single cells were removed from embryos at cleavage stage between 3 and 8 cells using the standard embryo biopsy techniques. Individual blastomeres from each embryo were then assayed for the presence of IGF-1 and IGF-1R mRNA using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. The biopsied embryos were washed in medium and placed in co-culture with murine endometrial cells. Embryonic development in culture was assessed and blastocyst grading was performed. IGF-1 gene expression was then examined for an association with in-vitro development. Eighty-seven embryos were biopsied. IGF-1R gene expression was detected in the majority of embryos tested and IGF-1 gene expression was detected in 34 of 81 (42%) embryos. A significant association between IGF-1 expression and blastocyst formation in vitro was found (P < 0.01). There was no association between IGF-1R expression and subsequent embryo development. We conclude that IGF-1 gene expression could potentially be used as a marker of embryo quality.  (+info)

Drosophila myc regulates cellular growth during development. (5/189)

Transcription factors of the Myc proto-oncogene family promote cell division, but how they do this is poorly understood. Here we address the functions of Drosophila Myc (dMyc) during development. Using mosaic analysis in the fly wing, we show that loss of dMyc retards cellular growth (accumulation of cell mass) and reduces cell size, whereas dMyc overproduction increases growth rates and cell size. dMyc-induced growth promotes G1/S progression but fails to accelerate cell division because G2/M progression is independently controlled by Cdc25/String. We also show that the secreted signal Wingless patterns growth in the wing primordium by modulating dMyc expression. Our results indicate that dMyc links patterning signals to cell division by regulating primary targets involved in cellular growth and metabolism.  (+info)

PPAR gamma is required for placental, cardiac, and adipose tissue development. (6/189)

The nuclear hormone receptor PPAR gamma promotes adipogenesis and macrophage differentiation and is a primary pharmacological target in the treatment of type II diabetes. Here, we show that PPAR gamma gene knockout results in two independent lethal phases. Initially, PPAR gamma deficiency interferes with terminal differentiation of the trophoblast and placental vascularization, leading to severe myocardial thinning and death by E10.0. Supplementing PPAR gamma null embryos with wild-type placentas via aggregation with tetraploid embryos corrects the cardiac defect, implicating a previously unrecognized dependence of the developing heart on a functional placenta. A tetraploid-rescued mutant surviving to term exhibited another lethal combination of pathologies, including lipodystrophy and multiple hemorrhages. These findings both confirm and expand the current known spectrum of physiological functions regulated by PPAR gamma.  (+info)

PPAR gamma mediates high-fat diet-induced adipocyte hypertrophy and insulin resistance. (7/189)

Agonist-induced activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) is known to cause adipocyte differentiation and insulin sensitivity. The biological role of PPAR gamma was investigated by gene targeting. Homozygous PPAR gamma-deficient embryos died at 10.5-11.5 dpc due to placental dysfunction. Quite unexpectedly, heterozygous PPAR gamma-deficient mice were protected from the development of insulin resistance due to adipocyte hypertrophy under a high-fat diet. These phenotypes were abrogated by PPAR gamma agonist treatment. Heterozygous PPAR gamma-deficient mice showed overexpression and hypersecretion of leptin despite the smaller size of adipocytes and decreased fat mass, which may explain these phenotypes at least in part. This study reveals a hitherto unpredicted role for PPAR gamma in high-fat diet-induced obesity due to adipocyte hypertrophy and insulin resistance, which requires both alleles of PPAR gamma.  (+info)

Developmental toxicity studies in rats and rabbits with 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol, the major metabolite of chlorpyrifos. (8/189)

3,5,6-Trichloro-2-pyridinol (TCP), the primary metabolite of chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl, was evaluated for potential developmental toxicity. Groups of 32-34 bred female Fischer 344 rats were given 0, 50, 100, or 150 mg TCP/kg/day by gavage on gestation days 6-15; the fetuses were evaluated on gestation day 21. Similarly, groups of 16 inseminated female New Zealand White rabbits were given 0, 25, 100, or 250 mg TCP/kg/day by gavage on gestation days 7-19, and fetuses were evaluated on gestation day 28. No clinical signs of toxicity attributed to TCP were noted in either species. In rats, at 150 mg/kg/day, maternal effects included slight decreases in feed consumption, significantly depressed body weight gain (25% relative to controls) resulting in significantly lower maternal terminal body weights, and increased relative liver weight. At 100 mg/kg/day, maternal body weight gain in rats was depressed approximately 22%. Among rabbits, maternal effects were limited to the group given 250 mg/kg/day, which lost an average of approximately 70 g during the treatment period (vs. 140 g in the controls). There were no effects on fetal weight or viability, nor were there significant increases in any fetal alteration in either species. A slightly higher (not statistically significant) than usual incidence of central nervous system anomalies occurred in rabbits, but these anomalies were found in both treated and control groups in this study as well as contemporaneous studies of unrelated compounds. This, and the fact that these anomalies were not seen with the parent compound, chlorpyrifos, suggest that their origin was spontaneous. Thus, TCP was not considered fetotoxic or teratogenic in either rats or rabbits, even at dose levels that produced maternal toxicity.  (+info)

Reading Time: 3 minutes. Viability (a babys ability to survive outside the womb if born prematurely), has had a huge impact on the abortion debate. The gestational age of viability is the point at which many elected officials who advocate for abortion will concede that abortion should cease to be a legal option. Consequently, 21 states maintain abortion laws prohibiting the killing of a preborn child who has reached the age of viability. Until recently, 24 weeks gestation was accepted across the board as the age at which doctors would intervene to save a child born prematurely. But, according to the New York Times, new research suggests that more doctors should intervene to assist babies born as early as 22 weeks.. The ability of a very premature child to survive hinges heavily on the development of his lungs. Some doctors reject the notion that a child faces good enough odds of survival prior to 24 weeks, so they simply will not intervene for a baby born earlier. However, physicians have ...
Prior to Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton, there was no such concept as a post-viability abortion. Abortion was, by definition, the death, either natural or inflicted, of a pre-viable fetus. The closest practice to what we know as late abortion was the destructive operation, performed to remove a fetus who had died during obstructed labor. The destructive operation is sometimes still used in areas that lack the medical facilities to perform safe Cesarean sections,[2][3] but elsewhere it has been supplanted.[4] With Roe and Doe, the Supreme Court declared that there was a Constitutional right to an abortion even past fetal viability. US abortionists thus were limited in scope only by their own willingness to destroy fetal life. It was only after the Planned Parenthood vs. Casey decision that states were permitted to limit post-viability abortions. Many still do not have, or do not enforce, laws that Casey had established as enforceable. In the immediate post-Roe era, abortions past the midpoint ...

Pregnant rats and rabbits were treated with paricalcitol by once-daily intravenous (IV) injection during the period of organogenesis (in rats, from gestation day (GD) 6 to 17; in rabbits, from GD 6 to 18). Rats were dosed at 0, 0.3, 1.0 or 3.0 mcg/kg/day and rabbits at 0, 0.03, 0.1 or 0.3 mcg/kg/day, representing up to 2 or 0.5 times, respectively, the maximum recommended human dose (MRHD) of 0.24 mcg/kg, based on body surface area (mg/m2). Slightly decreased fetal viability was observed in both studies at the highest doses representing 2 and 0.5 times, respectively, the MRHD in the presence of maternal toxicity (decreased body weight and food consumption). Pregnant rats were administered paricalcitol by IV injection three times per week at doses of 0, 0.3, 3.0 or 20.0 mcg/kg/day throughout gestation, parturition and lactation (GD 6 to lactation day (LD) 20) representing exposures up to 13 times the MHRD.

Texas passed an abortion ban at 6 weeks, in defiance of Federal rulings that they cannot do this before fetal viability (about 25weeks). How did that happen?
CNS anomalies are some of the most common and clinically important congenital malformations encountered in utero. Improved detection of CNS anomalies requires a systematic survey of the cranium and spine as a part of all obstetric sonograms performed after the first trimester. Recognition of characteristic cranial findings associated with spina bifida can dramatically improve detection of small spinal defects before the time of fetal viability, even when the sonogram is performed for low-risk indications. Patients suspected to be carrying a fetus that has a cranial or spinal anomaly should ideally be referred to a tertiary center for confirmation of the defect, evaluation of possible additional anomalies, and for patient management and counseling. ...

According to the U.S. District Court of Southern Indianas document on the outcome, Pratt ruled in the petitioners favor to place a preliminary injunction on the law while the organization pursues litigation challenging the constitutionality of three of its provisions: forbidding abortion based solely on a fetus sex, race or disability; requiring abortion providers to inform clients of this law; and requiring the remains of an aborted fetus to be buried or cremated.. In the document, Pratt states that the stay was granted because PPINK is likely to succeed on the merits of its challenge to the anti-discrimination provisions because they directly contravene the principal established in Roe v. Wade … that a state may not prohibit a woman from making the ultimate decision to have an abortion prior to fetal viability.. Similarly, the information dissemination provision is likely unconstitutional as it requires abortion providers to convey almost certainly false information to their ...
Both ideas were embraced by many who ratified the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and they were defended forcefully by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.. Last week, the Supreme Court revived the concept of nullification.. Here is the backstory.. Since January 1973, when the Supreme Court issued its opinion in Roe v. Wade, abortion has been lawful everywhere in the United States up to the time of fetal viability, after about 24 weeks of gestation. This principle has been challenged many times in many courts, and it has always been upheld.. The Supreme Court has faithfully upheld Roe every time it has come before the court. Sadly, Roe also permits the states to permit abortion up to the moment before birth, as some states do.. Texas, the state where Roe began, recently enacted legislation that directly contradicts Roes central holding. The Texas statute prohibits abortions upon the detection of a fetal heartbeat, after about six weeks of gestation. That legislation was challenged by ...
A variety of multimodal treatment options are available for colorectal cancer and many patients want to be involved in decisions about their therapies. However, their desire for autonomy is limited by lack of disease-specific knowledge. Visual aids may be helpful tools to present complex data in an easy-to-understand, graphic form to lay persons. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the treatment preferences of healthy persons and patients using visual aids depicting multimodal treatment options for colorectal cancer. We designed visual aids for treatment scenarios based on four key studies concerning multimodal treatment of colorectal cancer. The visual aids were composed of diagrams depicting outcome parameters and side effects of two treatment options. They were presented to healthy persons (n = 265) and to patients with colorectal cancer (n = 102). Most patients and healthy persons could make immediate decisions after seeing the diagrams (range: 88% - 100%). Patients (79%) chose the

Brigitte posted recently on U.K.s bid to lower the gestational age limit on abortion from 24 to 20 weeks in light of improved outcomes for extremely premature infants. An accompanying piece to the Telegraphs article featured a toddler born at 23 weeks gestation and his mother commenting on the proposed revised guidelines.. Now, I want to be very careful in critiquing an effort that would no doubt reduce the number of abortions performed. That being said, my area of specialty in bioethics is neonatal ethics. Ive seen enough infants born at 23 weeks gestation to last me a lifetime and while I support making every reasonable effort to support them medically while they grow enough lung and brain tissue to make it in the big wide world, Im not sure I understand why abortion should be prevented with more gusto when it targets a viable fetus. My objection is philosophical: abortion cannot be half-right or half-wrong. Either the fetus is human or its not. You have to take the life of a viable fetus ...

Using story word maps we can now do gap analyses showing the differences (or similarities) between the stories an organization tells about itself and the stories a community, customers, or the press share about it. This is so cool! As this article demonstrates with the organizations they analyzed, you can clearly see where the intersections a, where the gaps are, and where the missed opportunities are. The author uses visual word maps to show us the results. The fact that the results are visual is fabulous! And easy to grasp/Interpret.Oh, I cant wait to start playing with this. It doesnt appear as if there are easy tools yet to do this, so generating the word maps will take time and effort. But I think well worth it.Any app developers out
This chapter seeks to identify the limited circumstances in which an innocent human life may be terminated in order to protect the rights of others. It investigates conflicts such as that between conjoined twins, between a pregnant woman and a viable fetus, and in the context of a hijacked plane being used as a weapon It is argued that one life may be taken to save another if there will be a net gain in human life, provided that a) the intervening action only diverts an existing threat, rather than introducing a new threat to an individuals life, and b) the intervening action does not entail an infringement of an individuals rights and thus treat him or her as a means to an end. It is also argued that a viable fetus right to life does not obligate the fetus mother to permit it to continue to use her body in order to preserve its life. ...

Thanks, Maxine! I dont think we are allowed to take any visual aids in with us - but I have made myself familiar with the axis chart and would be able to draw one up. I thought that if I can tell which area it should fall into, i.e. in example 2 above I can tell its a right axis deviation, so it must fall into that area on the pie chart, so cant be -30 but must be 150 degrees. Hoping that I am on the right track but it seems to be working with the ones I have worked through so far. Your method is the first one that really made sense to me and which is user friendly and works a treat - thanks again, I will make sure to share it around to all other desperate souls who struggle with this! :).

Leesburg, VA, September 21, 2018-Use of a visual aid increased the subjective confidence of radiologists in the dose and route of medication administration in simulated patient reaction to contrast media and led to faster administration of epinephrine, according to an article in the October 2018 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR).. Patients receiving IV contrasts can have a variety of reactions, including life-threatening anaphylaxis, although such occurrences are rare.. Researchers divided 138 attending radiologists and trainees into 21 sessions as part of a simulated contrast medium reaction program. Eleven groups received a visual aid, 10 groups did not. The visual aid provided was a 8.5 × 11 inch laminated poster placed on top of the contrast medium reaction kit.. The visual aid included clinical decision algorithms for response to the following scenarios: unresponsive, hypotensive, wheezing/bronchospasm, facial/laryngeal edema, and urticaria. Both adult and pediatric ...
Nidogen-2, also known as osteonidogen, is a basal lamina protein of the nidogen family. It was the second nidogen to be described after nidogen-1 (entactin). Both play key roles during late embryonic development. In humans it is encoded by the NID2 gene.

7. The courts below found, and Justice BLACKMUNs dissenting opinion agrees, post, at 499-500, that there is no possible justification for a second-physician requirement whenever D & E is used because no viable fetus can survive a D & E procedure. 483 F.Supp., at 694; 655 F.2d, at 865. Accordingly, for them, § 188.030.3 is overbroad. This reasoning rests on two assumptions. First, a fetus cannot survive a D & E abortion, and second, D & E is the method of choice in the third trimester. There is general agreement as to the first proposition, but not as to the second. Indeed, almost all of the authorities disagree with Justice BLACKMUNs critical assumption, and as the Court of Appeals noted, the choice of this procedure after viability is subject to the requirements of § 188.030.2. See id., at 865, and n. 28. Nevertheless, the courts below, in conclusory language, found that D & E is the method of choice even after viability is possible. 655 F.2d, at 865. No scholarly writing supporting this ...

A visual aid is so powerful to people and also goes to show just how kind people are when they know.. Heidi tries to be open about her condition but struggles with how people react to the issues she faces.. She says: Its impossible to fully understand unless you live with us so people just dont believe things are as bad as we say they are (not that Im sure why youd want to say those things about yourself otherwise) but most come out with oh I do that.. This isnt just going upstairs and forgetting why you went or forgetting the name of your neighbours cat.. I know most are trying to make me feel better but it takes quite a lot to admit to issues like these and it just isnt helpful. People need to understand.. Its the equivalent of saying to someone with a brain tumour oh I get headaches too. You just wouldnt.. Although the last few years have been hard, Heidi tries to see some positives..

Rob taught this lesson, and it was the best one Ive ever seen on repentance. First he told a story about a child that was invited to a super delicious dinner by his mom and dad. (Rob is a great story teller, but Ill do my best to convey the gist of it here.) When he came to dinner his mom said, if you want to have dinner, you need to wash your hands. The boy said, I dont want to wash my hands. Theyre not that dirty. The mom told him that even if they are a little dirty, he still needs to wash them. She said, Please wash them. I have this dinner ready for you, and I will be sad to see you miss out on your favorite dinner.. …So, what would you do if this happened to you?. Our Heavenly Father has promised us a joyful life with Him if we will just repent when we make a mistake. Some things will take more time to resolve than others, but in the end the reward will be worth the effort.. Then we went through each scripture on these visual aids to show the steps of repentance. We all took ...

  • For purposes of abortion regulation, viability is reached when, in the judgement of the attending physician on the particular facts of the case before him, there is a reasonable likelihood of the fetuses' sustained survival outside the womb, with or without artificial support. (
  • Laws permitting abortion in cases of fetal impairment vary in their formulation: Some countries limit the exception to non-viable pregnancies or fatal fetal impairments, others require that the impairment be "serious" or "permanent," and some countries include a broad exception for fetal impairment. (
  • Notably, fetal impairment exceptions have been both criticized from a disability rights perspective and misappropriated by actors seeking to undermine the legality of abortion. (
  • Treaty monitoring bodies have repeatedly urged States to revise restrictive abortion laws to allow women access to abortion in a range of circumstances, including in cases of serious fetal impairments. (
  • 5 In Mellet v. Ireland and Whelan v. Ireland , the Human Rights Committee addressed situations wherein women were compelled to travel abroad to obtain abortion services after receiving diagnoses of fatal fetal impairments. (
  • 9 Although this statement does not mention abortion in cases of fetal impairment, it urges states to ensure that all women are able to enjoy their rights and are provided with complete information in order to make autonomous decisions about their health care. (
  • The panel held that Arizona House Bill 2036, enacted in April 2012, effects such a deprivation by prohibiting abortion from twenty weeks gestational age through fetal viability. (
  • Viability (a baby's ability to survive outside the womb if born prematurely), has had a huge impact on the abortion debate. (
  • The gestational age of viability is the point at which many elected officials who advocate for abortion will concede that abortion should cease to be a legal option. (
  • Consequently, 21 states maintain abortion laws prohibiting the killing of a preborn child who has reached the age of viability. (
  • Because so many states - and the Supreme Court - hold the abortion of nonviable children as a legal right, these new findings raise important questions: Will the widely-accepted age of viability be changed to 22 weeks, and if so, when? (
  • And, does a physician's bias in favor of abortion make him less likely to offer treatment to a baby delivered earlier than the status quo 24-week viability mark? (
  • One thing is clear: no argument for the legality of abortion stands on firm premises - the ever-changing perception of fetal viability is just one of many instances of the shaky ground on which the so-called "right" to kill children stands. (
  • Partial-Birth Abortion refers to a late-term abortion method which induces a breech delivery and collapses the fetal skull before completing delivery. (
