Abstract

This prospective study includes 103 cases of chondroid pulmonary hamartomas, resected over a period of nearly six years. Genes encoding proteins of the high motility group (HMGI-C, (Y), chromosomes 12q15 and 6p21) were analyzed cytogenetically. Furthermore, we examined the expression of growth-regulatory markers, including galectins-1, -3, -8, heparin-binding lectin (HBL), calcyclin (S100A6) and macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), as well as that of Ki-67 (MIB-1). Syntactic structure analysis was applied to automated classification of stained histological slides and for the detection of topological properties in hamartomas and disease-free lung. These data were set in relation to clinical features, including environmental hazards, smoking habit, and the occurrence of heart-lung disease. Men and women contributed to the study in 61 and 42 cases, respectively. Smoking was frequent (75% men and 54% women), with a mean tobacco consumption of 36 pack years. Aberrations affecting exclusively the HMGI-C gene and the HGMI(Y) gene were seen in 46 cases (44.7%) and in 22 cases (21.3%), respectively. Both genes were affected in only one case. Abnormalities most frequently occurred in chromosomal bands 6p12 and 12q14. Genetic abe...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
