However, in the presence of 0.1 mM Ca²⁺, RyR2s from human were 3.5-fold less sensitive to cytoplasmic Mg²⁺ inhibition than those from sheep and rat. The Kₐ values for luminal Ca²⁺ activation were similar in the three species (35 µM for human, 12 µM for sheep, and 10 µM for rat). From the relationship between open probability and luminal [Ca²⁺], the peak open probability for the human RyR2 was approximately the same as that for sheep, and both were ~10-fold greater than that for rat RyR2. Human RyR2 also showed the same sensitivity to luminal Mg²⁺ as that from sheep, whereas rat RyR2 was 10-fold more sensitive. In all species, modulation of RyR2 gating by luminal Ca²⁺ and Mg²⁺ only occurred when cytoplasmic [Ca²⁺] was <3 µM. The activation response of RyR2 to luminal and cytoplasmic Ca²⁺ was strongly dependent on the Mg²⁺ concentration. Addition of physiological levels (1 mM) of Mg²⁺ raised the Kₐ for cytoplasmic Ca²⁺ to 30 µM (human and sheep) or 90 µM (rat) and raised the Kₐ for luminal Ca²⁺ to ~1 mM in all species. This is the first report of the regulation by Ca²⁺ and Mg²⁺ of native RyR2 receptor activity from healthy human hearts.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 16:03:13 EST ]]> Impaired macrophage phagocytosis in

malleability of uterine action potentials underpinning labor http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18946 + currents could be a key model component requiring improvement to produce the longer-lasting bursting APs. Of the delayed rectifying K+ currents family it is of interest that KCNQ and hERG channels have been reported to be gestationally regulated in the uterus. These currents exhibit features similar to the broadly defined uterine IK1 of the original mathematical model. We thus formulated new quantitative descriptions for several IKCNQ and IhERG. Incorporation of these currents into the uterine cell model enabled simulations of the long-lasting bursting APs. Moreover, we used this modified model to simulate the effects of different contributions of IKCNQ and IhERG on AP form. Our findings suggest that the alterations in expression of hERG and KCNQ channels can potentially provide a mechanism for fine tuning of AP forms that lends a malleability for changing between plateau-like and long-lasting bursting-type APs as uterine cells prepare for parturition.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 13:01:12 EST ]]> The practicality of including the systemic inflammatory response syndrome in the definition of polytrauma: experience of a level one trauma centre http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18945 38 °C or <36 °C; Pulse >90 bpm; RR > 20/min or a PaCO₂ < 32 mmHg; WCC > 12.0 × 10⁹ L⁻¹, or <4.0 × 10⁹ L⁻¹, or the presence of >10 immature bands) collected from presentation, at 24 h intervals until 72 h post injury. Inclusion criteria were all patients generating a trauma team activation response age >16. Results: 336 patients met inclusion criteria. In 46% (155/336) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated due to missing data. Lowest rates of missing data observed on admission [3% (11/336)]. Stratified by ISS > 15 (132/336), in 7% (9/132) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated due to missing data. In 123 patients ISS > 15 with complete data, 81% (100/123) developed SIRS. For Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) > 2 in at least 2 body regions (64/336) in 5% (3/64) serial SIRS scores could not be calculated, with 92% (56/61) of patients with complete data developing SIRS. For Direct ICU admissions [25% (85/336)] 5% (4/85) of patients could not have serial SIRS calculated [mean ISS 15(±11)] and 90% (73/81) developed SIRS at least once over 72 h. Conclusion: Based on the experience of our level-1 trauma centre, the practicability of including SIRS into the definition of polytrauma as a surrogate for physiological derangement appears questionable even in prospective fashion.]]> Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:47:12 EST ]]> Intra-abdominal hypertension and the abdominal compartment syndrome: updated consensus definitions and clinical practice guidelines from the World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18944 Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:40:12 EST ]]> Efficacy of Mitomycin C for postoperative endoscopic sinus surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18943 Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:26:13 EST ]]> Poor sleep quality is strongly associated with subsequent pain intensity in patients with acute low back pain http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18942 Mon 27 Jul 2015 12:26:13 EST ]]> Control of a piezoelectrically actuated high-speed serial-kinematic AFM nanopositioner http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18940 Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:15 EST ]]> The politics of war and the 'Battle of Balaclava' http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18935 Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:14 EST ]]> Dietary supplementation with resveratrol and/or docosahexaenoic acid alters hippocampal gene expression in adult C57Bl/6 mice http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18941 Mon 27 Jul 2015 11:58:13 EST ]]>
