Smoothened is a key receptor of the hedgehog pathway, but the roles of Smoothened in cardiac development remain incompletely understood. In this study, we found that the conditional knockout of Smoothened from the mesoderm impaired the development of the venous pole of the heart and resulted in hypoplasia of the atrium/inflow tract (IFT) and a low heart rate. The blockage of Smoothened led to reduced expression of genes critical for sinoatrial node (SAN) development in the IFT. In a cardiac cell...

Three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models that provide a biologically relevant microenvironment are imperative to investigate cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions in vitro. Semi-synthetic star-shaped poly(ethylene glycol) (starPEG)-heparin hydrogels are widely used for 3D cell culture due to their highly tuneable biochemical and biomechanical properties. Changes in gene expression levels are commonly used as a measure of cellular responses. However, the isolation of high-quality RNA presents ...

Several strands of evidence indicate the presence of marked similarities between human brain and testis. Understanding these similarities and their implications has become a topic of interest among the scientific community. Indeed, an association of intelligence with some semen quality parameters has been reported and a relation between dysfunctions of the human brain and testis has also been evident. Numerous common molecular features are evident when these tissues are compared, which is reflec...

We describe the epidemiological characteristics and associated risk factors of those presenting at a large testing centre for SARS-CoV-2 infection. This is a retrospective record review of individuals who underwent SARS-CoV-2 testing by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) at a high-throughput national-level government facility located in the north of India. Samples collected from 6 April to 31 December 2020 are included in this work and represent four highly populous regions...

Protein AMPylation refers to the covalent attachment of an AMP moiety to the amino acid side chains of target proteins using ATP as nucleotide donor. This process is catalysed by dedicated AMP tran...

Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) flavoproteins form a broad and growing class of complex, multi-domain and often multi-subunit proteins coupling the most ancient cofactors (the Fe-S clusters) and the most versatile coenzymes (the flavin coenzymes, FMN and FAD). These enzymes catalyse oxidoreduction reactions usually acting as switches between donors of electron pairs and acceptors of single electrons, and vice versa. Through selected examples, the enzymes' structure-function relationships with respect to rate...

Non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) are multienzymes that produce complex natural metabolites with many applications in medicine and agriculture. They are composed of numerous catalytic domains that elongate and chemically modify amino acid substrates or derivatives and of non-catalytic carrier protein domains that can tether and shuttle the growing products to the different catalytic domains. The intrinsic flexibility of NRPSs permits conformational rearrangements that are required to all...
