Abstract : Wolman disease is the infantile form of autosomal recessive acid lipase deficiency, typically presenting in early infancy with diarrhea, massive hepatosplenomegaly, failure to thrive, and calcification of adrenal glands. Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is the only therapy reported to prevent hepatic failure and death, which without treatment occurs within the first year of life. We report a single institution's experience with HCT treatment of four Wolman patients, two of whom are long-term survivors (the longest survival reported to date, (4 and 11 years). Survivors showed resolution of diarrhea within weeks after engraftment, normalized hepatic function, improved hepatosplenomegaly, and in one patient normal adrenal function. The older patient has normal adaptive functions but mild to moderate neurocognitive deficiencies thought to be secondary to treatment and other medical problems. The younger patient has age-appropriate neurodevelopmental and adaptive abilities. We conclude that Wolman disease can be successfully treated with HCT, and that hepatic and cognitive function can be preserved with early diagnosis and timely referral to a transplant center.

Abstract : The 5.67-megabase genome of the plant pathogen Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 consists of a circular chromosome, a linear chromosome, and two plasmids. Extensive orthology and nucleotide colinearity between the genomes of A. tumefaciens and the plant symbiont Sinorhizobium meliloti suggest a recent evolutionary divergence. Their similarities include metabolic, transport, and regulatory systems that promote survival in the highly competitive rhizosphere; differences are apparent in their genome structure and virulence gene complement. Availability of the A. tumefaciens sequence will facilitate investigations into the molecular basis of pathogenesis and the evolutionary divergence of pathogenic and symbiotic lifestyles.

Title : Exploring the Mycoplasma capricolum genome: a minimal cell reveals its physiology - Bork_1995_Mol.Microbiol_16_955

Abstract : We report on the analysis of 214kb of the parasitic eubacterium Mycoplasma capricolum sequenced by genomic walking techniques. The 287 putative proteins detected to date represent about half of the estimated total number of 500 predicted for this organism. A large fraction of these (75%) can be assigned a likely function as a result of similarity searches. Several important features of the functional organization of this small genome are already apparent. Among these are (i) the expected relatively large number of enzymes involved in metabolic transport and activation, for efficient use of host cell nutrients; (ii) the presence of anabolic enzymes; (iii) the unexpected diversity of enzymes involved in DNA replication and repair; and (iv) a sizeable number of orthologues (82 so far) in Escherichia coli. This survey is beginning to provide a detailed view of how M. capricolum manages to maintain essential cellular processes with a genome much smaller than that of its bacterial relatives.
