New Light on the Mechanism of Phototransduction in Phototropin.

L Henry, O Berntsson, M R Panman, A Cellini, A J Hughes, I Kosheleva, R Henning, S Westenhoff,

Phototropins are photoreceptor proteins that regulate blue light-dependent biological processes for efficient photosynthesis in plants and algae. The proteins consist of a photosensory domain that responds to the ambient light and an output module that triggers cellular responses. The photosensory domain of phototropin from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii contains two conserved LOV ... Read more >>

ASC acts in a caspase-1-independent manner to worsen acute pneumonia caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

A J Hughes, C A Knoten, A R Morris, A R Hauser,

PURPOSE:Pseudomonas aeruginosa expresses a type III secretion system (T3SS) that activates the host inflammasome-mediated immune response. We examined the role of inflammasome activation in severe infection outcomes. METHODS:We infected C57BL/6 (B6) mice lacking inflammasome components ASC or caspase-1/11 with a highly virulent strain of P. aeruginosa, PSE9, using a mouse ... Read more >>

Temporal regularity determines the impact of electrical stimulation on tactile reactivity and response to capsaicin in spinally transected rats.

K M Baumbauer, K H Lee, D A Puga, S A Woller, A J Hughes, J W Grau,

Nociceptive plasticity and central sensitization within the spinal cord depend on neurobiological mechanisms implicated in learning and memory in higher neural systems, suggesting that the factors that impact brain-mediated learning and memory could modulate how stimulation affects spinal systems. One such factor is temporal regularity (predictability). The present paper shows ... Read more >>

P J W Saxton, N P Dickson, S M McAllister, A J Hughes, K Sharples,

Annual population-based estimates of the number of men who have sex with men (MSM) with diagnosed HIV infection (HIV prevalence pool), and the proportion of all MSM this represents (HIV prevalence), have been insufficiently described over the long term. We investigated the dynamic effects of ongoing HIV diagnoses, lower mortality ... Read more >>

Rotational drift of mandibular third molar teeth: a series of four cases.

A J Hughes, S T Vudiniabola, B D McMillan, A C Smith,

Rotational drift of mandibular third molar teeth is a challenge for clinicians to predict and manage. Evidence on the incidence and degree of rotation is sparse. As the factors influencing rotation are not defined, prediction is impossible. A series of four cases with lower third molar rotation are presented and ... Read more >>

Timing in the absence of supraspinal input I: variable, but not fixed, spaced stimulation of the sciatic nerve undermines spinally-mediated instrumental learning.

K M Baumbauer, K C Hoy, J R Huie, A J Hughes, S A Woller, D A Puga, B Setlow, J W Grau,

Rats with complete spinal transections are capable of acquiring a simple instrumentally trained response. If rats receive shock to one hind limb when the limb is extended (controllable shock), the spinal cord will learn to hold the leg in a flexed position that minimizes shock exposure. If shock is delivered ... Read more >>

Diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection using ESAT-6 and intracellular cytokine cytometry.

A J Hughes, P Hutchinson, T Gooding, N J Freezer, S R Holdsworth, P D R Johnson,

Diagnosis of infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) using tuberculin skin testing (TST) is often hampered by prior Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination. ESAT-6 is a protein that is expressed by MTB but absent in BCG. It has been postulated that it might be useful in distinguishing MTB-specific immune responses. This study ... Read more >>

Improved accuracy of clinical diagnosis of Lewy body Parkinson's disease.

A J Hughes, S E Daniel, A J Lees,
