The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus, the master mammalian circadian pacemaker, synchronizes endogenous rhythms with the external day-night cycle. Older humans, particularly those with Alzheimer disease (AD), often have difficulty maintaining normal circadian rhythms compared to younger adults, but...

The isochorismate and salicylate synthases are members of the MST family of enzymes. The isochorismate synthases establish an equilibrium for the conversion chorismate to isochorismate and the reverse reaction. The salicylate synthases convert chorismate to salicylate with an isochorismate intermediate;...

Previous study showed that the magnesium-protoporphyrin IX chelatase H subunit (CHLH/ABAR) positively regulates abscisic acid (ABA) signaling. Here, we investigated the functions of a CHLH/ABAR interaction protein, the chloroplast co-chaperonin 20 (CPN20) in ABA signaling in Arabidopsis thaliana. We showed...

In contrast to other types of shock, anaphylactic shock decreases cerebral blood flow more than would be expected from severe arterial hypotension, thus potentially affecting survival through brain ischaemia/hypoxia. We hypothesised that epinephrine (EPI) used as a first-line treatment of...

Significant and selective up-regulation of the Na+ /H+ exchanger NHA2 (SLC9B2) was observed in cysts of patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Using the MDCK cell model of cystogenesis, it was found that NHA2 increases cyst size. Silencing or...

Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is synthesised in magnocellular neurons (MCNs) of supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus. In response to the hyperosmotic stressors of dehydration (complete fluid deprivation, DH) or salt loading (drinking 2% salt solution, SL)...

Male rats (Rattus novergicus) infected with protozoan Toxoplasma gondii relinquish their innate aversion to the cat odours. This behavioural change is postulated to increase transmission of the parasite to its definitive felid hosts. Here, we show that the Toxoplasma gondii...

Renin–angiotensin system overactivity, upregulation of postsynaptic NMDA receptor function, and increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) are hallmarks of angiotensin II (AngII)-induced hypertension, which is far more common in young males than in young...

Selenoproteins are a unique family of proteins, characterized by the co-translational incorporation of selenium as selenocysteine, which play key roles in antioxidant defense. Among selenoproteins, selenoprotein P (Sepp1) is particularly distinctive due to the fact that it contains multiple selenocysteine...

δ-Hexachlorocyclohexane (δ-HCH), one of the prevalent isomers of technical HCH, was enantioselectively dehydrochlorinated by the dehydrochlorinases LinA1 and LinA2 from Sphingobium indicum B90A to the very same δ-pentachlorocyclohexene enantiomer. Racemic δ-pentachlorocyclohexene, however, was transformed with opposite enantioselectivities by the two...
