Metastasis is complex, involving multiple genetic, epigenetic, biochemical, and physical changes in the cancer cell and its microenvironment. Cells with metastatic potential are often characterized by altered cellular contractility and deformability, lending them the flexibility to disseminate and navigate through different microenvironments. We demonstrate that mechanoresponsiveness is a hallmark of pancreatic cancer cells. Key mechanoresponsive proteins, those that accumulate in response to mechanical stress, specifically nonmuscle myosin IIA (MYH9) and IIC (MYH14), α-actinin 4, and filamin B, were highly expressed in pancreatic cancer as compared with healthy ductal epithelia. Their less responsive sister paralogs-myosin IIB (MYH10), α-actinin 1, and filamin A-had lower expression differential or disappeared with cancer progression. We demonstrate that proteins whose cellular contributions are often overlooked because of their low abundance can have profound impact on cell architecture, behavior, and mechanics. Here, the low abundant protein MYH14 promoted metastatic behavior and could be exploited with 4-hydroxyacetophenone (4-HAP), which increased MYH14 assembly, stiffening cells. As a result, 4-HAP decreased dissemination, induced cortical actin belts in spheroids, and slowed retrograde actin flow. 4-HAP also reduced liver metastases in human pancreatic cancer-bearing nude mice. Thus, increasing MYH14 assembly overwhelms the ability of cells to polarize and invade, suggesting targeting the mechanoresponsive proteins of the actin cytoskeleton as a new strategy to improve the survival of patients with pancreatic cancer. SIGNIFICANCE: This study demonstrates that mechanoresponsive proteins become upregulated with pancreatic cancer progression and that this system of proteins can be pharmacologically targeted to inhibit the metastatic potential of pancreatic cancer cells.

This study reports on the effects of unmodified autohydrolyzed ethanol organosolv lignin (AH EOL) and modified autohydrolyzed ethanol organosolv lignin on the structural characteristics and antioxidant properties upon incorporation of p-hydroxyacetophenone (AHP EOL). The lignin samples isolated from black liquor of oil palm fronds (OPF) were evaluated and compared using various complementary analyses; FTIR, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, 2D-NMR spectroscopy (HMBC and HSQC), CHN, GPC, HPLC and thermal analyses (TGA and DSC). Chemically modified organosolv lignin (AHP EOL) provided lignin with lower molecular weight (Mw), which has smaller fragments that leads to higher solubility rate in water in comparison to unmodified organosolv lignin, AH EOL (DAHP EOL: 19.8% > DAH EOL: 14.0%). It was evident that the antioxidant properties of modified organosolv lignin has better reducing power in comparison to the unmodified organosolv lignin. Therefore, the functionalization of lignin polymers enhanced their antioxidant properties and structural features towards a various alternative approach in lignin-based applications.

Genitourinary fistula is a psychophysiosocial distress that results in prolonged labour. Gradually, it has become a public health issue globally with advancing of its incidence day by day. A handsome number of mothers are also suffering in Bangladesh from genitourinary fistula. This study was done to observe the patterns of presentations of genitourinary fistula and their fetal outcome. One hundred sixteen (116) consecutive patients were enrolled in the study by purposive sampling as a diagnosed case of genitourinary fistula presented in Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology of Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from January 2017 to September 2017. It was a prospective observational cross-sectional study. A pre-structured, interview and observation based, peer reviewed data collection sheet was prepared. Data regarding sociodemographic, clinical and Obstetrical profile were recorded. Statistical analysis was done with SPSS version 23. Data were presented as mean and standard deviation, frequency and percentage with range. The mean age of the respondents was 27.27±4.21 (age range: 20-35 years). The mean height of the respondents was 150.26±13.28cm (range: 133-172cm). Among 106 mothers 69(65.1%) and 25(23.6%) were primiparous and multiparous respectively. On the contrary, 5(4.7%) each were grand multiparous and experienced fistula due to non obstetrics complications like malignancy, hysterectomy and radiotherapy. Mothers had 1, 2 and 3 fistulas in 98(92.5%), 6(5.7%) and 2(1.9%) respectively. Among 106 mothers, 99(93.4%) experienced only urinary incontinence whereas 5(4.7%) experienced fecal incontinence. Only 2(1.9%) experienced both urinary and fecal incontinence. Maximum vesicovaginal fistula was due to obstructed labour (65.09%) which was subsequently followed by trauma (14.15%). Vesicovaginal fistula was the commonest type which was subsequently followed by vesicocervical fistula. Among 106 mothers, 73(68.9%) and 25(23.6%) gave birth, still birth and alive babies respectively. On the contrary, 4(3.7%) neonate experienced death in neonatal period whereas 1(0.9%) each twin deliveries resulted in ‘one dead and one alive’ and ‘Twin alive’ respectively. In case of only 3(2.8%) mothers ‘no information’ regarding fetal outcome could be recorded. Prolonged labour is the principal culprit to develop genitourinary fistulas among which VVF is the commonest variety. Still birth is the frequently evident fetal outcome in case of this clinical disaster of pregnancy.
