Perinatal granulopoiesis and cord blood serum PGLYRP-1, a specific granule protein, are altered prior to onset of childhood asthma and provide potential targets for early identification of at-risk populations.
Using a lineage tracing model, it is demonstrated that adult murine hematopoiesis is contingent on the continuous output from HSCs, with quantitative contributions that are dependent on lineage-type and age.
Morphologic, molecular, biomechanical and computational analyses show that the specialized extracellular matrix architecture of the umbilical artery contributes to its rapid closure at birth and regulates smooth muscle cell differentiation.
Parturition gene regulation across multiple cell-types and placental compartments is deciphered at single cell resolution, highlighting the common role of the NFKB pathway in both term and preterm birth.
Loss of Inverted Formin-2 impairs intracellular trafficking and trophoblast invasion, resulting in maternal hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction, which represents a novel model of impaired placental invasion that encompasses critical aspects of the great obstetrical syndromes.
Distinct haemocytometric parameters, including cell activation markers, combined in a prognostic score may support early identification of COVID-19 patients likely to deteriorate and thus may benefit from ICU admission.
Comprehensive mass spectrometry analysis of human plasma proteome reveals tissue leakage proteins, describes variability between individual plasma proteomes and demonstrates protein transfer across the placenta during pregnancy.
