“The chaperonin GroEL interacts with various proteins, leading them to adopt their correct conformations with the aid of GroES and ATP. The actual mechanism is
still being debated. In this study, by use of cryo-electron microscopy, we determined the solution structure of the Thermus thermophilus GroEL-GroES complex encapsulating its substrate proteins. We observed the averaged density of substrate proteins in the center of the GroEL-GroES cavity. The position of the averaged substrate density in the cavity suggested a repulsive interaction between a majority of the substrate proteins and the interior wall of the cavity, which is suitable for substrate release. In addition, we observed a distortion of the cis-GroEL ring, especially at the position near the substrate, which indicated that the interaction between the encapsulated proteins and the GroEL ring results in an adjustment in the cavity’s shape to accommodate the substrate.”
“Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is a mesenchymal tumor consisting of distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells, and is commonly detected in the uterus. The liver is an uncommon site for primary PEComa. In this study, we report
a case of primary hepatic PEComa in a 36-year-old woman. Upon gross examination, the tumor was a well-defined, brownish solid mass, measuring 6.5 x 5.2 x 4.5 cm. Microscopically, the tumor consisted Selleckchem JQ1 largely of epithelioid cells and some spindle cells with a clear to eosinophilic cytoplasm and a rich network of delicate capillaries in the stroma.
With the exception of their relatively large size and microscopically sinusoidal infiltrative GANT61 purchase growth pattern, all other histopathologic features of the tumor were consistent with their being benign. The tumor cells were positive for human melanoma black-45 and smooth muscle actin, and negative for cytokeratin-cocktail and c-kit.”
“In 2004, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) published the “Protocol for Standardized Production of Clinical Practice Guidelines,” which was to be implemented in forthcoming clinical practice guidelines (CPG). This protocol formally incorporated subjective factors and evidence-based medicine (EBM) methods that tightly mapped evidence levels to recommendation grades. A uniform publication template and multilevel review process were also outlined. Seven CPG have been subsequently published with use of this 2004 AACE protocol. Recently, growing concerns about the usefulness of CPG have been raised. The purposes of this report are to address shortcomings of the 2004 AACE protocol and to present an updated 2010 AACE protocol for CPG development.
