Cystic fibrosis and arsenic poisoning linked to same damaged protein

first_imgA new Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health co-authored study provides further evidence linking both arsenic poisoning and the chronic respiratory disease cystic fibrosis (CF) to damage in the CFTR protein. An examination of arsenic-exposed patients in Bangladesh found that they had elevated sweat chloride levels — the typical diagnostic sign of CF. While many patients also showed respiratory symptoms consistent with a CF diagnosis, none actually had the disease.The study appeared online February 5, 2015 in the New England Journal of Medicine.CF is caused by a genetic defect in the CFTR protein, which regulates the flow of chloride in and out of cells. Recent studies in cell culture show that arsenic causes the CFTR protein to break down. Better understanding of how arsenic damages the CFTR protein could lead to new, more affordable drugs for CF, according to the authors. The study also suggests that patients exposed to arsenic should be monitored for CF-like disease.Co-authors include Maitreyi Mazumdar, assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Health, and David Christiani, Elkan Blout Professor of Environmental Genetics. The study was supported by the Harvard University Center for the Environment and the Harvard–National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Center. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Antonio Brown a good fit for Ravens, says cousin Hollywood Brown

first_imgThe Ravens would benefit from the signing of Antonio Brown, according to his cousin Marquise “Hollywood” Brown.The older Brown, 32, was released by the Patriots in September last year amid sexual assault allegations he has denied. He recently was banned for eight games due to “multiple violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.” Didn’t end how we wanted but man couldn’t ask for a better group of guys and organization we will be backYear 1— Hollywood Brown (@Primetime_jet) January 12, 2020″I feel like he would fit in this locker room. He’s a guy that’s competitive and he’s going to go out there and give 100 percent. Seeing stuff like that is going to make other guys want to do the same.”Antonio Brown, who had a controversial stint with the Raiders last year — he was cut before playing a game for them — is a seven-time Pro Bowler, with all of those selections coming while he was a member of the Steelers.His 23-year-old cousin scored seven receiving touchdowns for the Ravens as a rookie in 2019. Baltimore lost in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs to the Titans. IYER: Ravens need to keep saying no to ABThe wide receiver has been linked with a host of teams ahead of the new season, though, and worked out with both his cousin and star Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in the offseason.Jackson has spoken of his hope of bringing Brown to Baltimore in a move that the team’s second-year receiver — a first-round pick in 2019 — would also welcome.”AB, he’s a guy that’s going to bring the best out of you,” Hollywood Brown told reporters.last_img read more
