Toll-like receptor 2/4 in Chinese patients with sepsis

Introduction Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction that results from an exaggerated host immune response to disseminate infection.1 Despite improvements in treatment strategies, sepsis remains a leading cause of death in critically ill patients worldwide.2 Low platelet number, known as thrombocytopenia, is common in infectious diseases (also sometimes referred to…

Haplogroup M (mtDNA)

In human genetics, Haplogroup M is a human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup. An enormous haplogroup spanning many continents, the macro-haplogroup M is a branch of the haplogroup L3. M is believed to have originated in Asia [Gonzalez et al., [www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1945034 Mitochondrial lineage M1 traces an early human backflow to Africa]…

Sod1 integrates oxygen availability to redox regulate NADPH production and the thiol redoxome

Significance Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Sod1) is a key antioxidant enzyme, and its importance is underscored by the fact that its ablation in cell and animal models results in oxidative stress; metabolic defects; and reductions in cell proliferation, viability, and lifespan. Curiously, Sod1 detoxifies superoxide radicals (O2•−) in a manner that…

Adrenal aldosterone-producing adenoma | IJGM

Background Primary hyperaldosteronism (PA) is characterized by spontaneous secretion of excessive aldosterone and inhibition of plasma renin activity.1 The pathogenesis of adrenal aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) involves the abnormal proliferation of adrenal cortex cells and the excessive secretion of aldosterone, accounting for nearly 30% of PA. Excessive secretion of aldosterone can…

Systems biology analysis of human genomes points to key pathways conferring spina bifida risk

Significance Genetic investigations of most structural birth defects, including spina bifida (SB), congenital heart disease, and craniofacial anomalies, have been underpowered for genome-wide association studies because of their rarity, genetic heterogeneity, incomplete penetrance, and environmental influences. Our systems biology strategy to investigate SB predisposition controls for population stratification and avoids…
