Novel mutations in SPEF2 causing different defects between flagella and cilia bridge: the phenotypic link between MMAF and PCD
Novel mutations in SPEF2 causing different defects between flagella and cilia bridge: the phenotypic link between MMAF and PCD: AbstractSevere asthenozoospermia is a common cause of male infertility. Recent studies have revealed that SPEF2 mutations lead to multiple morphological abnormalities of the sperm flagella (MMAF) without primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) symptoms in males, but PCD phenotype was also found in one female individual. Therefore, whether there is a phenotypic continuum ranging...

Foxn1 and Prkdc genes are important for testis function: evidence from nude and scid adult mice
Foxn1 and Prkdc genes are important for testis function: evidence from nude and scid adult mice: AbstractMutations in Foxn1 and Prkdc genes lead to nude and severe combined immunodeficiency (scid) phenotypes, respectively. Besides being immunodeficient, previous reports have shown that nude mice have lower gonadotropins and testosterone levels, while scid mice present increased pachytene spermatocyte (PS) apoptosis. Therefore, these specific features make them important experimental models for understanding...

A20-OVA Nanoparticles Inhibit Allergic Asthma in a Murine Model: AbstractThe skewed T helper (Th) 2 response plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of allergic asthma. Regulatory T (Treg) cells and the regulatory cytokines are required in maintaining the homeostasis in the body. This study aims to determine the effects of a poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA)-ovalbumin (OVA)+A20 (a ubiquitin E3 ligase) nanovaccine on inhibiting allergic asthma in a murine model. In this study, A20 and OVA (a...

Cell adhesion in cancer: Beyond the migration of single cells [Signal Transduction]
Cell adhesion in cancer: Beyond the migration of single cells [Signal Transduction]: Homeostasis in healthy tissues strongly relies on cell-to-cell adhesion and cell-to-extracellular matrix interactions. For instance, normal epithelial cells maintain tissue structure by adhering to each other and to the extracellular matrix. The proteins that mediate these distinct interactions are collectively called cell adhesion molecules and are divided into four major groups: cadherins, integrins, selectins,...

The basis for non-canonical ROK family function in the N-acetylmannosamine kinase from the pathogen Staphylococcus aureus [Enzymology]: In environments where glucose is limited, some pathogenic bacteria metabolise host derived sialic acid as a nutrient source. N-Acetylmannosamine kinase (NanK) is the second enzyme of the bacterial sialic acid import and degradation pathway and adds phosphate to N-acetylmannosamine using ATP to prime the molecule for future pathway reactions. Sequence alignments reveal...
