Cause of irreversible inactivation of aminoacylase in urea solution

Tsinghua Science and Technology, 1999

Some have suggested that the refolding of denatured aminoacylase is difficult. The present study reports that aminoacylase denatured in urea concentrations more than 4 mol/L was markedly but partially unfolded and could be reactivated and refolded very rapidly. However, the extent of reactivation decreased with increasing time suggesting an irreversible inactivation occurred ina biphasic course. The fast phase of the ...

  • Cause of irreversible inactivation of aminoacylase in urea solution

The present study reports that aminoacylase denatured in urea concentrations more than 4 mol/L was markedly but partially unfolded and could be reactivated and refolded very rapidly. However, the extent of reactivation decreased with increasing time suggesting an irreversible inactivation occurred ina biphasic course. The fast phase of the irreversible inactivation is suggested to accompany the unfolding. Oxidation of the thiol groups exposed by unfolding may be one of the main causes of the second phase of the irreversible inactivation.

  • Automatic renal segmentation in DCE-MRI using convolutional neural networks

    Kidney function evaluation using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) images could help in diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases of children. Automatic segmentation of renal parenchyma is an important step in this process. In this paper, we propose a time and memory efficient fully automated segmentation method which achieves high segmentation accuracy with running time in the order of seconds in both normal kidneys and kidneys with hydronephrosis. The proposed method is based on a cascaded application of two 3D convolutional neural networks that employs spatial and temporal information at the same time in order to learn the tasks of localization and segmentation of kidneys, respectively. Segmentation performance is evaluated on both normal and abnormal kidneys with varying levels of hydronephrosis. We achieved a mean dice coefficient of 91.4 and 83.6 for normal and abnormal kidneys of pediatric patients, respectively.

  • Baseline estimation for serum creatinine for definition of acute kidney injury

    Estimation process for baseline of Serum Creatinine (SCr) is constructed for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) where baseline is necessary for definition. In order to deal with missing value, the estimation process calculates the baseline values for different stable interval, which the definition process select the appropriate interval based on the number of days from the target test day. The estimation process is applied to the real SCr data in Kochi Medical School hospital. The experiment result shows that the process extracts the 12.7% of non AKI patients as possible AKI. The constructed process can provides the appropriate non AKI patient data for retrospective study with hospital data.

  • Internal crack detection in kidney bean seeds using X-ray imaging technique

    Seed quality testing is a contemporary research area that is motivated towards increasing agricultural productivity. For accurate quality assessment of seeds, internal morphological characteristics should be thoroughly examined in addition to the external examination. The soft X-ray imaging technique enables the visualization of the internal morphological attributes of agricultural seeds and grains in a non-destructive manner. The objective of this paper was to study the efficacy of using the X-ray imaging technique to detect the internal cracks in kidney bean seeds. The X-ray images of the sample seeds were acquired and image processing techniques such as histogram thresholding and morphological operations were applied on them. The segmented seed images were further processed and features were extracted. The extracted features were utilized for automatic detection of internal cracks, if present. The obtained results clearly indicated the usability of X-ray imaging techniques for automatic non-destructive detection of internal cracks in kidney bean seeds, as an essential component of their quality assessment.

  • An automatic kidney segmentation from abdominal CT images

    The problem we address in this paper is the automatic kidney segmentation from abdominal 2D computed tomography images (CT). Accurately identifying kidney in medical image is a key step relating to the study of various kidney diseases. However, kidney segmentation from CT images is generally performed manually or semi-automatically because of gray levels similarities of adjacent organs, contrast media effect and relatively high variation of organ's positions and shapes in abdominal CT images. The proposed method in this paper is the combination of medical anatomic knowledge and image processing methods a which can be divided into two stages. First, an improved connected component labeling algorithm based on intensity value is proposed to extract estimated kidney position (EKP). This algorithm is applicable to abdominal CT images of different sizes by using the position of kidney and spine. In the second stage, a novel region growing approach based on multi-scale mathematical morphology and labeling algorithm is used to extract the fine kidney regions. The method is tested on over 200 clinically acquired images and very promising results were obtained.

  • A photovoltage-based integrated sensor for nephrotoxicity evaluation under drug stimulation

    A monolithically integrated sensor based on photovoltage technique is developed for kidney metabolism detection under drug toxicity. The sensor utilizes the light-addressable potentiometric sensor with an electrolyte- insulator-semiconductor (EIS) structure for measuring cellular metabolic rate, and a gold metal layer is deposited on partial surface of silicon dioxide for extracellular redox (reduction-oxidation) potential detection. The neonatal rat's kidney cells are confined to a flow chamber with a volume of 50 μl, in which the constructed sensor continuously monitoring the rate of acid metabolites, and the redox potential in extracellular microenvironment. The synthesis parameters detected reflect the cellular metabolic and active condition after drug stimulation, which demonstrates the potentials for nephrotoxicity evaluation and preclinical drug screening.

  • Photoacoustic phasoscopy for tissue characterization

    In this paper, a novel method named photoacoustic `phasoscopy' (PAP) is proposed to collect both scattered photons and induced photoacoustic wave to build a photo-acoustic phase spectrum, rather than conventional frequency spectrum, for biological tissue characterization,. PAP provides phase contrast with enhanced sensitivity and robustness compared with pure optical or photoacoustic sensing only. Experimental result of characterizing three different kinds of biological tissues proves the feasibility of PAP for potential biomedical sensing and imaging applications.

  • The Comparison of The Biopsy Needles Efficiency

    Nowadays, the renal biopsy needles which used in Thailand have been imported from aboard. They are variety of brands, qualities and wide ranges of prices. Among the needles which are available in market, the biggest problem is renal needle effectiveness which affects to the volume of kidney for pathologic investigation. However, the use of biopsy needles depends on the satisfication of users which never been quantitatively identified. In this work, we performed the experiment to investigate the efficiency of biopsy needles, which focused on the Automatic and Disposable type from 5 brands (No.1 to No. 5). The tests were evaluated by 2 experiments; 1. The test of spring's compressions with different compressive distances (10 mm., 15 mm. and 20 mm., respectively) and 2. The test of kidney volume was performed by punching the biopsy needle in porcine kidney with different angles of 15°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 75°, respectively. From the results of the spring's compression, the needle No. 3, 5, 2, 1 and 4, respectively consumed the minimum to maximum forces in both parts of needle (cutter part and puncher part) at the maximum distance of 20 mm. The results from renal tissue volume test exhibited that at angle of 30° and 60° had constant volume of kidney, approximately 10 mm3, in each biopsy which is enough for volumic and pathologic conditions for pathology examination. In conclusion, results from the tests show that the 5 brands of biopsy needles have different technical design which affect to their effectiveness. However, they are still having the same general characteristic such as size and dimension which reported in the industrial standards.
