Qari, S. H., A. F. Alrefaei, A. B. Ashoor, and M. H. Soliman, "Genotoxicity and Carcinogenicity of Medicinal Herbs and Their Nanoparticles", Nutraceuticals, vol. 1, issue 1, pp. 31 - 41, 2021. AbstractWebsite

Medicinal plants (MPs) account for 70–80% of use in primary care around the world, and this percentage indicates that the number of MP users is high; thus, it is necessary to focus studies on medicinal herbs to ensure their proper use. In addition, MPs have strong genotoxic effects, as some types of MPs can cause DNA damage. Any substance that raises the risk of cancer or a tumor in an organism is called a carcinogen. There are many genotoxic and carcinogenic substances in the environment that can directly or indirectly affect genetic material. There are also nanoparticles (NPs) derived from MPs. Carbon-based NPs contain many nanoscale materials, such as fullerenes and carbon nanotubes, as well as metals such as gold (Au), silver (Ag), and aluminum (Al). Unfortunately, few studies are concerned with the carcinogenicity of NPs from MPs, whereas many researchers are interested in genotoxic assessment. For this reason, there is an urgent need for more studies into the safety of MPs and NPs. Therefore, this study reviewed the genotoxicity and carcinogenicity of MPs and their derived NPs. We also emphasized the need for strict regulation and monitoring of MP usage.

Niu, "Fermented crop straws by Trichoderma viride and Saccharomyces cerevisiae enhanced the bioconversion rate of Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae).", Environmental science and pollution research international, vol. 26, issue 2019, pp. 29388–29396, 2019. AbstractWebsite

Crop straw is an abundant renewable resource whose usage is limited due to its high cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin contents. Here, Trichoderma viride, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Musca domestica were used to transform crop straws, and we investigated their impact on housefly rearing performance and optimized their utilization. The weights of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin in fermented crop straw diets significantly decreased after bioconversion by M. domestica larvae. The highest bioconversion rate was recorded in corn straw diet (16.19%), followed by wheat straw diet (10.31%) and wheat bran diet (8.97%). Similarly, high larval weight (yield) and pupation rate and fecundity and fertility rate were recorded in fermented crop straw diets composed of corn straw and wheat bran in 1:1 proportions. These results indicated that fermenting crop straw with T. viride and S. cerevisiae represented an efficient strategy that enhanced crop straw bioconversion and improved the rearing capacity of the housefly larvae. The resulting larvae could further be used as proteinaceous feed in poultry and aquaculture industries. Graphical abstract.

Qian, D., A. E. - M. M. El-Sharkawy, E. Atalar, and P. A. Bottomley, "Interventional MRI: tapering improves the distal sensitivity of the loopless antenna.", Magnetic resonance in medicine, vol. 63, issue 3, pp. 797-802, 2010 Mar. Abstract

The "loopless antenna" is an interventional MRI detector consisting of a tuned coaxial cable and an extended inner conductor or "whip". A limitation is the poor sensitivity afforded at, and immediately proximal to, its distal end, which is exacerbated by the extended whip length when the whip is uniformly insulated. It is shown here that tapered insulation dramatically improves the distal sensitivity of the loopless antenna by pushing the current sensitivity toward the tip. The absolute signal-to-noise ratio is numerically computed by the electromagnetic method-of-moments for three resonant 3-T antennae with no insulation, uniform insulation, and with linearly tapered insulation. The analysis shows that tapered insulation provides an approximately 400% increase in signal-to-noise ratio in trans-axial planes 1 cm from the tip and a 16-fold increase in the sensitive area as compared to an equivalent, uniformly insulated antenna. These findings are directly confirmed by phantom experiments and by MRI of an aorta specimen. The results demonstrate that numerical electromagnetic signal-to-noise ratio analysis can accurately predict the loopless detector's signal-to-noise ratio and play a central role in optimizing its design. The manifold improvement in distal signal-to-noise ratio afforded by redistributing the insulation should improve the loopless antenna's utility for interventional MRI.

Qiao, L., L. Xu, L. Yu, J. Wynn, R. Hernan, X. Zhou, C. Farkouh-Karoleski, U. S. Krishnan, J. Khlevner, A. De, et al., Rare and de novo variants in 827 congenital diaphragmatic hernia probands implicate LONP1 as candidate risk gene, , vol. 108, issue 10, pp. 1964 - 1980, 2021. AbstractWebsite

SummaryCongenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a severe congenital anomaly that is often accompanied by other anomalies. Although the role of genetics in the pathogenesis of CDH has been established, only a small number of disease-associated genes have been identified. To further investigate the genetics of CDH, we analyzed de novo coding variants in 827 proband-parent trios and confirmed an overall significant enrichment of damaging de novo variants, especially in constrained genes. We identified LONP1 (lon peptidase 1, mitochondrial) and ALYREF (Aly/REF export factor) as candidate CDH-associated genes on the basis of de novo variants at a false discovery rate below 0.05. We also performed ultra-rare variant association analyses in 748 affected individuals and 11,220 ancestry-matched population control individuals and identified LONP1 as a risk gene contributing to CDH through both de novo and ultra-rare inherited largely heterozygous variants clustered in the core of the domains and segregating with CDH in affected familial individuals. Approximately 3% of our CDH cohort who are heterozygous with ultra-rare predicted damaging variants in LONP1 have a range of clinical phenotypes, including other anomalies in some individuals and higher mortality and requirement for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Mice with lung epithelium-specific deletion of Lonp1 die immediately after birth, most likely because of the observed severe reduction of lung growth, a known contributor to the high mortality in humans. Our findings of both de novo and inherited rare variants in the same gene may have implications in the design and analysis for other genetic studies of congenital anomalies.

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) or laser induced plasma spectroscopy (LIPS) technique has been applied to investigate plasma characterization of pure copper in air. The fundamental wavelength of Q-switched Nd:YAG laser beam was focused on the copper target with intensity of about 6.6 × 108 W/cm2 to generate the plasma. The laser intensity was optimized to avoid air breakdown on the target surface. The generated Cu plasma plume was monitored with CCD camera and the emission is analyzed with an Ophir WaveStar spectrometer. The plasma temperature is calculated as 10100 K while plasma density is 5.4 × 1017 cm-3. The CCD observed image of the constructed plasma plume showed that it is oblate shape rather than expected spherical nature. The observed results revealed the spatial distribution of the generated plasma plume expansion towards the laser beam that depends on the plasma properties. The observed ablation profile with the number of laser pulses is also studied. © 2014, National Institute of Optoelectronics. All right reserved.

Qiu, S. G., S. Krishnan, N. el-Guendy, and V. M. Rangnekar, "Negative regulation of Par-4 by oncogenic Ras is essential for cellular transformation.", Oncogene, vol. 18, issue 50, pp. 7115-23, 1999 Nov 25. Abstract

Oncogenic variants of the cellular Ras protein are often associated with different types of human cancers. However, the mechanisms by which oncogenic Ras induces transformation are not fully established. Expression of the transcriptional repressor Par-4 was down-regulated by oncogenic Ras via the Raf-MEK-ERK pathway. Restoration of Par-4 levels by abrogation of the Raf-MEK-ERK pathway with the MEK-inhibitor PD98059 or by ectopic Par-4, that acted to inhibit ERK expression and activation, was sufficient to suppress oncogenic Ras-induced transformation. These findings identify Par-4 as a novel target that has to be down-modulated by oncogenic Ras for successful transformation.
