Journal Articles

© 2019, The Author(s). AMPA receptors (AMPARs) are tetrameric ligand-gated channels made up of combinations of GluA1-4 subunits encoded by GRIA1-4 genes. GluA2 has an especially important role because, following post-transcriptional editing at the Q607 site, it renders heteromultimeric AMPARs Ca2+-impermeable, with a linear relationship between current and trans-membrane voltage. Here, we report heterozygous de novo GRIA2 mutations in 28 unrelated patients with intellectual disability (ID) and neurodevelopmental abnormalities including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Rett syndrome-like features, and seizures or developmental epileptic encephalopathy (DEE). In functional expression studies, mutations lead to a decrease in agonist-evoked current mediated by mutant ...

Differential Bacterial Colonization And Biofilm Formation On Punctal Occluders, M. Hadjiargyrou, E. D. Donnenfeld, L. M. Grillo, H. D. Perry

Journal Articles

© 2019 by the authors. Dry eye is a common condition that is treated primarily by topical lubricants, immunomodulation, and a variety of punctal and canalicular plugs (occluders). Biofilm formation has been reported as an ongoing problem with the clinical use of occluders. In order to explore the role of biofilm formation on occluders, we tested the bacteria strain, Staphylococcus aureus, with three different types of occluders, Delta R , Odyssey R , and Alphamed R . Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of these occluders revealed a variation in surface appearance, with Odyssey R being the smoothest (but with grooves), followed by Delta R , and ...

Fibrillary Glomerulonephritis: An Update, J. L. Rosenstock, G. S. Markowitz Jan 2019

Fibrillary Glomerulonephritis: An Update, J. L. Rosenstock, G. S. Markowitz

Journal Articles

© 2019 International Society of Nephrology Fibrillary glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a rare proliferative form of glomerular disease characterized by randomly oriented fibrillar deposits with a mean diameter of 20 nm. By immunofluorescence (IF), the deposits stain for IgG, C3, and κ and λ light chains, suggesting that the fibrils may be composed of antigen-antibody immune complexes. A recent major advance in our understanding of the pathogenesis of FGN resulted from the discovery that a major component of the fibrils is DNA-J heat-shock protein family member B9 (DNAJB9), and immunohistochemical staining for DNAJB9 now makes it possible to diagnose FGN in the ...

Journal Articles

© 2019 Takamiya, Hirano, Yamagata, Takei, Kishimoto and Mimura. Introduction: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) has antidepressant effects, but it also has possible cognitive side effects. The effects of ECT on neuronal oscillatory pattern and phase synchronization, and the relationship between clinical response or cognitive change and electroencephalogram (EEG) measurements remain elusive. Methods: Individuals with unipolar depressive disorder receiving bilateral ECT were recruited. Five minutes of resting, eyes-closed, 19-lead EEG recordings were obtained before and after a course of ECT. Non-overlapping 60 artifact-free epocs of 2-s duration were used for the analyses. We used exact low resolution electromagnetic tomography (eLORETA) to compute the ...
