1.Molecular mechanism of HIV-1 resistance to 3'-azido-2',3'-dideoxyguanosine.
Meteer JD1, Schinazi RF2, Mellors JW3, Sluis-Cremer N4. Antiviral Res. 2014 Jan;101:62-7. doi: 10.1016/j.antiviral.2013.10.017. Epub 2013 Nov 7.
We reported that 3'-azido-2',3'-dideoxyguanosine (3'-azido-ddG) selected for the L74V, F77L, and L214F mutations in the polymerase domain and K476N and V518I mutations in the RNase H domain of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT). In this study, we have defined the molecular mechanisms of 3'-azido-ddG resistance by performing in-depth biochemical analyses of HIV-1 RT containing mutations L74V, F77L, V106I, L214F, R277K, and K476N (SGS3). The SGS3 HIV-1 RT was from a single-genome-derived full-length RT sequence obtained from 3'-azido-ddG resistant HIV-1 selected in vitro. We also analyzed two additional constructs that either lacked the L74V mutation (SGS3-L74V) or the K476N mutation (SGS3-K476N). Pre-steady-state kinetic experiments revealed that the L74V mutation allows RT to effectively discriminate between the natural nucleotide (dGTP) and 3'-azido-ddG-triphosphate (3'-azido-ddGTP). 3'-azido-ddGTP discrimination was primarily driven by a decrease in 3'-azido-ddGTP binding affinity (Kd) and not by a decreased rate of incorporation (kpol).
2.Simultaneous determination of metacavir and its metabolites in rat plasma using high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometric detection (LC-MS/MS).

A sensitive and selective liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for the simultaneous determination of metacavir and its two metabolites in rat plasma was developed and validated. Tinidazole was used as an internal standard and plasma samples were pretreated with one-step liquid-liquid extraction. In addition, these analytes were separated using an isocratic mobile phase on a reverse-phase C18 column and analyzed by MS in the selected reaction monitoring mode. The monitored precursor to product-ion transitions for metacavir, 2',3'-dideoxyguanosine, O-methylguanine and the internal standard were m/z 266.0 → 166.0, m/z 252.0 → 152.0, m/z 166.0 → 149.0 and m/z 248.0 → 202.0, respectively. The standard curves were found to be linear in the range of 1-1000 ng/mL for metacavir, 5-5000 ng/mL for 2',3'-dideoxyguanosine and 1-1000 ng/mL for O-methylguanine in rat plasma. The precision and accuracy for both within- and between-batch determination of all analytes ranged from 2.
3.Lentiviral infection of rhesus macaques causes long-term injury to cortical and hippocampal projections of prostaglandin-expressing cholinergic basal forebrain neurons.
Depboylu C1, Weihe E, Eiden LE. J Neuropathol Exp Neurol. 2012 Jan;71(1):15-27. doi: 10.1097/NEN.0b013e31823cfac5.
The simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) macaque model resembles human immunodeficiency virus-acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and associated brain dysfunction. Altered expression of synaptic markers and transmitters in neuro-AIDS has been reported, but limited data exist for the cholinergic system and lipid mediators such as prostaglandins. Here, we analyzed cholinergic basal forebrain neurons with their telencephalic projections and the rate-limiting enzymes for prostaglandin synthesis, cyclooxygenase isotypes 1 and 2 (COX1 and COX2) in the brains of SIV-infected macaques with or without encephalitis and antiretroviral therapy and uninfected controls.Cyclooxygenase isotype 1, but not COX2, was coexpressed with markers of cholinergic phenotype, that is, choline acetyltransferase and vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT), in basal forebrain neurons of monkey, as well as human, brain. Cyclooxygenase isotype 1 was decreased in basal forebrain neurons in macaques with AIDS versus uninfected and asymptomatic SIV-infected macaques.
4.The top skin-associated genes: a comparative analysis of human and mouse skin transcriptomes.
Gerber PA, Buhren BA, Schrumpf H, Homey B, Zlotnik A, Hevezi P. Biol Chem. 2014 Jun;395(6):577-91. doi: 10.1515/hsz-2013-0279.
The mouse represents a key model system for the study of the physiology and biochemistry of skin. Comparison of skin between mouse and human is critical for interpretation and application of data from mouse experiments to human disease. Here, we review the current knowledge on structure and immunology of mouse and human skin. Moreover, we present a systematic comparison of human and mouse skin transcriptomes. To this end, we have recently used a genome-wide database of human gene expression to identify genes highly expressed in skin, with no, or limited expression elsewhere - human skin-associated genes (hSAGs). Analysis of our set of hSAGs allowed us to generate a comprehensive molecular characterization of healthy human skin. Here, we used a similar database to generate a list of mouse skin-associated genes (mSAGs). A comparative analysis between the top human (n=666) and mouse (n=873) skin-associated genes (SAGs) revealed a total of only 30.
