Abstract: Background. Leprosy is a debilitating infectious disease of human skin and nerves. Genetics factors of the host play an important role in the disease susceptibility. Toll-interacting protein (TOLLIP) is an inhibitory adaptor protein within the toll-like receptor (TLR) pathway, which recognizes structurally conserved molecular patterns of microbial pathogens, initiating immune responses. The objective of this study was to investigate the association of variants in the TOLLIP gene with susceptibility to leprosy in Mexican patients. Methods. TOLLIP polymorphisms were studied using a case-control design of Mexican patients with lepromatous leprosy (LL). The polymorphisms of TOLLIP at loci -526 C>G (rs5743854), 1309956C>T (rs3750920), 1298430C>A (rs5744015), and 1292831 G>A (rs3750919) were analyzed by PCR, with sequence-specific primers in LL patients and healthy subjects (HS) as controls. Results. Genotype distributions were in Hardy Weinberg equilibrium for all sites except for rs3750920. Neither genotype nor allele frequencies were statistically different between LL patients and controls (P>0.05). The maximum pairwise D' coefficient reached was 0.44 of linkage (P=0.01) for all the polymorphisms except for rs5743854. The three loci haplotype comparison yielded no significant differences between groups. Conclusions. Just the individuals with genotype C/C of rs3750920 have a trend of protective effect to developing LL.

As a consequence, we show that trends in specific angular momentum J/M and angular velocity ? are inconsistent with certain models of isothermal, non-magnetic cloud rotation. Similarly, models of rotation which invoke turbulent vorticity may have only limited applicability to clumps and condensations. There is evidence to favour an important rule for rotation in maintaining the stability of disks, larger cloud structures, and perhaps a large fraction of intermediate sized clouds, whilst rotation may also be implicated in maintaining observed departures from cloud sphericity. Although it is conceivable that magnetic braking is responsible for the radial decrement in specific angular momentum, it appears that observed gradients dln(J/M)/dln(R) are significantly shallower than is normally anticipated through this mechanism. The variation of angular momentum with cloud mass M (viz. J ? M1.7) appears to be highly correlated, and is consistent with models of clump merging in isothermal rotating clouds. Similarly, the orientations of the angular velocity vectors for clumps and condensations appear broadly random, suggesting a turbulent origin for observed components of ? or, alternatively, a process of randomisation through magnetic and/or dynamic clump interactions. By contrast, isolated clouds (and perhaps also disks) are shown to have angular velocity vectors oriented predominantly towards the north and south galactic poles; a distribution which would be anticipated were components of J to arise from galactic shear. We show, finally, that most of the cloud subgroups appear to follow similar functional trends in J, J/M, and ?. Disks and rings, on the other hand, appear to depart from these variations to a significant degree; a difference which presumably derives from their distinct spatio-kinematic structures.",,,,,,,,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/44340","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-4243288045&partnerID=40&md5=63cbdadd92e4db9d891dec2153ea7970",,,,,,"2",,"Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series",,"241

Samples collected from external surfaces of cantaloupes, water, and the environments of packing sheds on cantaloupe farms were examined for the presence of Salmonella and E. coli. Of a total of 1,735 samples collected, 31 (1.8%) tested positive for Salmonella. Fifteen Salmonella serotypes were isolated from samples collected in Texas, and nine from samples collected in Colima. Two serotypes (Poona and Oranienburg) that have been associated with three large Salmonella outbreaks in the United States and Canada linked to the consumption of contaminated cantaloupe were found in water samples collected at four farms (three from the United States). Susceptibility of Salmonella isolates to 10 antimicrobials was evaluated by disk diffusion. Eighty-eight percent of the isolates from the United States and Mexico were pansusceptible to the antimicrobials tested; eight isolates from the United States demonstrated an intermediate susceptibility to streptomycin and only two isolates were resistant to the same antimicrobial. From Mexico, four isolates showed an intermediate susceptibility to streptomycin and one isolate was resistant to nalidixic acid and streptomycin. Repetitive sequence-based PCR analysis of Salmonella isolates helped to trace potential sources of Salmonella contamination in source water and in subsequent water samples obtained after the filtration systems of U.S. and Mexican cantaloupe farms. No differences could be seen between the levels of Salmonella contamination in melons from both countries.",,,,,,,,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/44354","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-1842476010&partnerID=40&md5=8759b3101c07ee57dec67cc52962e568",,,,,,"4",,"Journal of Food Protection",,"713

The technique of nylon bag was applied with heifers permanently fissured of rumen (being used like experimental units) that grazed star of Africa grass and a supplementation with 400 g/d of concentrate (grain of ground sorghum, paste of soya and minerals). They were incubated in rumen, 5 g of ground of cuajilote sample (chilillos, green, and mature) in nylon bags (large: 10 x 5 cm and pore: 52 ?) in periods of 0, 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, and 72 h. The treatments (maturity states) were distributed in a completely random design with four repetitions by treatment. The disappearance of the MS (DISMS, %) of the chilillos was twice greater (P<0.001) than the green, although smaller than the DISMS of the mature fruit. The type of MS fluctuated (P<0,001) depending on the maturity state, showing that degradable MS and soluble MS were more elevated in the mature fruit, followed by the chilillos and the greens (14,6 and 7.3 vs. 1,5%, as well as 29,3, 25,2 vs. 15,7%, respectively). On the other side, the degradable MS of the mature fruit begins to degrade more rapidly (0.0, 1.6, and 1.8 h for mature, chilillos, and greens, respectively) and a faster rate than the chilillos or greens (0.04 vs 0.03). The potential digestibility of the MS (%) was higher (P<0.05) in mature fruit (43.9) than the chilillos (32.0) and the greens (17.2). The same tendency appeared for the effective degradability. It is concluded that the MS of the mature fruit showed more availability of ruminal degradation than the chilillos and the greens, but the dry matter of this fruit showed a low ruminal availability indicating that it is not a material that can replace tropical forages.",,,,,,,,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/44345","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-45549092470&partnerID=40&md5=f1729efc0978f8e7cb3e19cac667b038",,,,,,"1",,"Zootecnia Tropical",,"1

Medical history was made and provided an information brochure and self-exclusion questionnaire. All blood donors were tested with serological tests (Ag-HBVs, Anti-HCV and Anti-HIV) and molecular testing with NAT for HBV, HCV and HIV. The window period was defined with the positive NAT and negative serological test. Results: During one year, we evaluated 47 847 blood donors. None subject was identified with viral infection (HBV, HCV and HIV) in serological window period. Positive serological testing were found for HBV in 78 (0.2%), 318 (0.7%) for HCV and 155 (0.3%) for HIV. Positive NAT was demonstrated only in donors with positive serology: 26 of 78 with HBV, 56 of 318 with HCV and 16 of 155 with HIV.
