Long-Chain Fatty Acids in Bones and Their Link to Submicroscopic Vascularization Network: NMR Assignment and Relaxation Studies under Magic Angle Spinning Conditions in Intramuscular Bones of Atlantic Herring Fish.

The long-lasting proton signals in bones are identified as long-chain fatty acids, including saturated, mono-, and di-unsaturated fatty acids, with direct nuclear magnetic resonance evidence. We used intramuscular bones from Atlantic Herring fish to avoid interference from lipid-rich marrows. The key is to recognize that these signals are from mobile phase materials and study them with J-coupled correlation spectroscopies under magic angle spinning conditions. We kept extensive 1H-spin-echo records that allowed us to examine the effect of magic angle spinning on the transverse relaxation time of water and lipids over time. While it is impossible to distinguish based on chemical shifts, the relaxation data suggest that the signals are more consistent with the interpretation of phospholipid membranes than triglycerides in lipid droplets. In particular, the simultaneous T2 changes in water and lipids suggest that the centrifugal impact of magic angle spinning alters the lipid's structure in very tight spaces. Additional evidence of phospholipid membranes came from the choline-γ resonance at 3.2 ppm in fresh samples, which disappears with magic angle spinning. Thus, the fatty acid signals are at least partially from membrane bilaye...Continue Reading

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.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

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.
