Nutmeg is a spice common to many kitchens around the world and is being used for many other reasons, such as an aphrodisiac, antimicrobial, antioxidant and analgesic, yet little is known about the toxic effects of nutmeg.A case is presented of a young male who took an overdose of nutmeg and presented via ambulance to the Emergency Department with multiple psychiatric and neurological symptoms. The case is described in detail, especially in regard to the prehospital and Emergency Department pr…

Project Summary Amyloid deposits of human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP, also known as amylin) play a key role in Type-2 diabetes (diabetes mellitus). Amyloid deposits composed of hIAPP can be found in approximately 95% of all Type-2 diabetes patients and have been associated with hyperglycemia and the loss of insulin producing ?-cells. While amyloid deposits often serve as markers of disease pathology, it is believed that the cytotoxic effect of amyloid fibrils is actually due to soluble …

Fear learning and regulatory processes have been the subject of intense neuroscientific scrutiny in recent years, as substantial evidence suggests that psychopathology can emerge when these processes are compromised. Research has suggested a method based on the principles of memory reconsolidation may constitute the basis for an effective therapeutic approach for treatment of stress and anxiety disorders. This method involves activation of a fear memory by presentation of an isolated retrieva…

Project Summary/Abstract Small nanoclusters of noble metals have emerged as promising fluorescent markers in nanomedicine applications, due to their high brightness, low toxicity and tunability. More recently, these materials have been implicated as having antimicrobial properties and can be targeted to multidrug resistant microbes. However, for silver nanoclusters (AgNCs), it is still problematic to delineate relative contributions of size, configuration, and environment on the optical prope…

? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this proposal we will explore the impact of autophagy, a self-digestion mechanism responsible for maintaining cellular homeostasis under different forms of stress, on dendritic cell development and function. While several recent studies have examined the role of different autophagic genes on selected aspects of dendritic cell biology, we will specifically focus on Beclin 1. Beclin 1 is essential for the early stages of autophagy, but also has several …

AstroCom NYC is designed to improve access by urban minority students to opportunities in astrophysical research by enhancing and solidifying partnerships between research astronomers in New York City. The partners are minority-serving institutions of the City University of New York (CUNY), and the astrophysics research departments of the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), and the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) at the Flatiron Institute. All CUNY astronomers form a suppor…

? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Dietary carotenoids are associated with many health benefits, including decreased rates of cancer and inflammatory disease. More importantly, pro-vitamin A carotenoids (such as ?-carotene) are essential for prevention of vitamin A deficiency (VAD), a global health problem causing blindness, greater susceptibility to disease, and increased mortality. Because of their health-promoting roles, substantial progress has been made in the metabolic engineering o…
