1. Comparative study on three different methods for arm-span measurement: the Japan environment and Children’s study pilot (PubMed)

Comparative study on three different methods for arm-span measurement: the Japan environment and Children’s study pilot Arm span is an important measure for the assessment of growth and hormone deficiency diseases. In an epidemiological survey, with a large number of subjects' indicators, it is especially valuable to establish methods which can measure both quickly and accurately. However, there are various methods, and the length of arm span may vary according to the medical institution.The (...) arm span of nine 6-year old subjects was measured using two institutional standard methods, A and B, and a third method C which is an improved method and has been used for the first time in this study. A, No-Wall, with heels together the child stretches the arms out to the sides. B, Wall & No-Line, the child stands against the wall with heels together and spreads the arms against the wall. C, Wall & Line, the method is the same as B except a paper with horizontal lines is placed on the wall. We

5. Arm span and ulnar length are reliable and accurate estimates of recumbent length and height in a multiethnic population of infants and children under 6 years of age. (PubMed)

Arm span and ulnar length are reliable and accurate estimates of recumbent length and height in a multiethnic population of infants and children under 6 years of age. Surrogate measures are needed when recumbent length or height is unobtainable or unreliable. Arm span has been used as a surrogate but is not feasible in children with shoulder or arm contractures. Ulnar length is not usually impaired by joint deformities, yet its utility as a surrogate has not been adequately studied (...) . In this cross-sectional study, we aimed to examine the accuracy and reliability of ulnar length measured by different tools as a surrogate measure of recumbent length and height. Anthropometrics [recumbent length, height, arm span, and ulnar length by caliper (ULC), ruler (ULR), and grid (ULG)] were measured in 1479 healthy infants and children aged <6 y across 8 study centers in the United States. Multivariate mixed-effects linear regression models for recumbent length and height were developed by using

6. All-age relationship between arm span and height in different ethnic groups. (PubMed)

All-age relationship between arm span and height in different ethnic groups. The objective of the present study was to establish multiethnic, all-age prediction equations for estimating stature from arm span in males and females. The arm span/height ratio (ASHR) from 13 947 subjects (40.9% females), aged 5-99 years, from nine centres (in China, Europe, Ghana, India and Iran) was used to predict ASHR as a function of age using the lambda, mu and sigma method. Z-scores for forced expiratory (...) volume in 1 s (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC) and FEV1/FVC in 1503 patients were calculated using measured height and height calculated from arm span and age. ASHR varied nonlinearly with age, was higher in males than in females and differed significantly between the nine sites. The data clustered into four groups: Asia, Europe, Ghana and Iran. Average predicted FEV1, FVC and FEV1/FVC using measured or predicted height did not differ, with standard deviations of 4.6% for FEV1, 5.0% for FVC

9. Overexpression of Nmnat improves the adaption of health span in aging Drosophila. (PubMed)

Overexpression of Nmnat improves the adaption of health span in aging Drosophila. Nmnat is a stress response protein which has been involved in a variety of biological processes. However, the effects of Nmnat on aging have not yet been investigated. The present study revealed the effects of Nmnat on aging of Drosophila and uncovered its underlying mechanism. Therefore, the overexpression of Nmnat was established by arm/Gal4 system in Drosophila with an aim to determine the functions of Nmnat (...) stress and mitochondrial-protection function. In addition, on H2O2 challenge tests, Nmnat overexpression was sufficient to increase the survival time and movement capacity of Drosophila, which was probably due to its protection against oxidative stress. On rotenone induced mitochondrial dysfunction, Nmnat overexpression also showed better health span and movement capacity than the control group. Based on these data, Nmnat may be a new molecular target to improve health span by enhancing stress

Here, we hypothesize that the novel adaptor protein ankyrin-rich membrane spanning protein/kinase D interacting substrate (ARMS) interacts with TRPV1 and modulates its function in rodent DRG neurons.We used immunohistochemistry, electrophysiology, microfluorimetry and immunoprecipitation experiments to investigate TRPV1 and ARMS interactions in DRG neurons and transfected cells.We found that TRPV1 and ARMS are co-expressed in a subpopulation of DRG neurons. ARMS sensitizes TRPV1 (...) Ankyrin-rich membrane spanning protein as a novel modulator of transient receptor potential vanilloid 1-function in nociceptive neurons. The ion channel TRPV1 is mainly expressed in small diameter dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, which are involved in the sensation of acute noxious thermal and chemical stimuli. Direct modifications of the channel by diverse signalling events have been intensively investigated, but little is known about the composition of modulating macromolecular TRPV1
