Peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (PMM), and primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) and reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH) of the peritoneum. Immunohistochemical and fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) analyses.
Tokorozawa, Japan. In J Clin Pathol, Feb 2016
METHODS: To help differentiate PMM from PPSC and RMH, we used immunohistochemistry to examine mesothelial-associated markers (calretinin, AE1/AE3, CK5/6, CAM5.2, D2-40, WT-1, HBME1, thrombomodulin), adenocarcinoma-associated markers (CEA, BerEP4, MOC31, ER (estrogen receptor), PgR, TTF-1, Claudin-4, Pax8), and malignant-related and benign-related markers (epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), desmin, GLUT-1, CD146 and IMP3), and FISH to examine for homozygous deletion of 9p21.
Mucinous Variant of Follicular Carcinoma of the Thyroid Gland: Case Report and Review of the Literature.
Novi Ligure, Italy. In Int J Surg Pathol, Dec 2015
We report the fourth case of mucinous variant of follicular carcinoma displaying a minimally invasive tumor with diffuse expression of thyroglobulin, TTF-1, CD56, PAX-8, cytokeratins 7 and 19, in the absence of monoclonal carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), cytokeratin 20, chromogranin, HBME-1, P63 expression, and BRAF gene mutation, in a 51-year-old woman who is alive without signs of disease 13 months after total thyroidectomy, bilateral neck dissection, and radioactive iodine.
Design and Synthesis of Nonequilibrium Systems.
Evanston, United States. In Acs Nano, Oct 2015
The launching pad is a bistable rotaxane whose dumbbell component contains two electron-donating recognition sites, one, a tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) unit, which interacts more strongly with the ring component, cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) (CBPQT(4+)), containing two electron-accepting bipyridinium units, than does the other 1,5-dioxynaphthalene (DNP) unit.
Infant pleuropulmonary blastoma: report of a rare case and review of literature.
Beijing, China. In Int J Clin Exp Pathol, 2014
Immunohistochemistry was performed for further detection: vimentin (+), S-100 protein (+), CK (AE1/AE3), EMA and TTF-1 in residual epithelial components (+), NSE (focal +), SMA (mesenchymal cells, focal +), CD99 (weak +), Bcl-2 (weak +), desmin (-), myoglobin (-), calretinin (-), calponin (-), FLI (-), MyoD-1 (-), and CD34 (-).
Ion-mediated electron transfer in a supramolecular donor-acceptor ensemble.
Austin, United States. In Science, 2010
We report here that strong binding of specific anions (chloride, bromide, and methylsulfate but not tetrafluoroborate or hexafluorophosphate) to a tetrathiafulvalene calixpyrrole (TTF-C4P) donor enforces a host conformation that favors electron transfer to a bisimidazolium quinone (BIQ2+) guest acceptor.
