Our understanding of the mechanisms by which ducts and lobules develop is derived from model
organisms and three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models wherein mammalian epithelial cells undergo
morphogenesis to form multicellular spheres with a hollow central lumen. However, the
mechanophysical properties associated with epithelial morphogenesis are poorly understood.
Antecedentes
We performed multidimensional live-cell imaging analysis to track the morphogenetic process starting
from a single cell to the development of a multicellular, spherical structure composed of polarized
epithelial cells surrounding a hollow lumen.
Métodos
We report that in addition to actively maintaining apicobasal polarity, the structures underwent
rotational motions at rates of 15–20 μm/h and the structures rotated 360° every 4 h during the early
phase of morphogenesis. Rotational motion was independent of the cell cycle, but was blocked by loss
of the epithelial polarity proteins Scribble or Pard3, or by inhibition of dynein-based microtubule
motors. Interestingly, none of the structures derived from human cancer underwent rotational motion.
We found a direct relationship between rotational motion and assembly of endogenous basement
membrane matrix around the 3D structures, and that structures that failed to rotate were defective in
weaving exogenous laminin matrix. Dissolution of basement membrane around mature, nonrotating
acini restored rotational movement and the ability to assemble exogenous laminin.
Thus, coordinated rotational movement is a unique mechanophysical process observed during normal
3D morphogenesis that regulates laminin matrix assembly and is lost in cancer-derived epithelial cells.

The control of chlorophyll levels in maturing kiwifruit
Chlorophyll is present in many plant organs, including immature
fruit where it is usually degraded during ripening. Mature green
kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) are an exception, with high
concentrations of chlorophyll remaining in the fruit flesh. In
gold-fleshed kiwifruit (A. chinensis), chlorophyll is degraded to
colourless catabolites upon fruit ripening, leaving yellow
carotenoids visible. We have identified candidate genes for the

Dear Dr Graeber,
Una buena carta de presentación
Nombre del editor
Título del manuscrito
Please find enclosed our manuscript entitled “Amyloid-like inclusions in the brains of Huntington’s disease patients”, by
McGowan et al., which we would like to submit for publication as a Research Paper in Neurogenetics.
Tipo de publicación
Recent immunohistochemical studies have revealed the presence of neuronal inclusions containing an N-terminal portion of
the mutant huntingtin protein and ubiquitin in the brain tissues of Huntington’s disease (HD) patients; however, the role of
these inclusions in the disease process has remained unclear. One suspected disease-causing mechanism in Huntington’s
disease and other polyglutamine disorders is the potential for the mutant protein to undergo a conformational change to a
more stable anti-parallel β-sheet structure…
Antecedentes
de la
investigación
To confirm if the immunohistochemically observed huntingtin- and ubiquitin-containing inclusions display amyloid features, we
performed Congo red staining and both polarizing and confocal microscopy on post-mortem human brain tissues obtained
from five HD patients, two AD patients, and two normal controls. Congo red staining revealed a small number of amyloid-like
inclusions showing green birefringence by polarized microscopy, in a variety of cortical regions.... ….detected inclusions
observed in parallel sections, suggesting that only a relatively small proportion of inclusions in HD adopt an amyloid-like
structure.
¿Qué se hizo y
que se
encontro?
We believe our findings will be of particular interest to the readership of Neurogenetics, which includes researchers and
clinicians studying the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, we feel that your
journal provides the most suitable platform for the dissemination of our work to the research community.

Agradecimiento a los revisores
Please find attached a revised version of our manuscript originally entitled “Evaluation of the Glasgow prognostic
score in patients undergoing curative resection for breast cancer liver metastases,” which we would like to resubmit
for consideration for publication in the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.
The reviewer’s comments were highly insightful and enabled us to greatly improve the quality of our manuscript. In
the following pages are our point-by-point responses to each of the comments.
Revisions in the manuscript are shown as highlighted text. In accordance with the first comment, the title has been
revised and the entire manuscript has undergone substantial English editing.
We hope that the revisions in the manuscript and our accompanying responses will be sufficient to make our
manuscript suitable for publication in the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.

Reviewer Comment: In your analysis of the data you have chosen
to use a somewhat obscure fitting function (regression). In my
opinion, a simple Gaussian function would have sufficed.
Moreover, the results would be more instructive and easier to
compare to previous results.
Response: We agree with the reviewer’s assessment of the
analysis. Our tailored function, in its current form, makes it difficult
to tell that this measurement constitutes a significant
improvement over previously reported values. We describe our
new analysis using a Gaussian fitting function in our revised Results
section (Page 6, Lines 12–18).

Reviewer Comment: In your analysis of the data you have chosen
to use a somewhat obscure fitting function (regression). In my
opinion, a simple Gaussian function would have sufficed.
Moreover, the results would be more instructive and easier to
compare to previous results.
Response: Although a simple Gaussian fit would facilitate

Reviewer comment: The authors looked for polymorphisms in the
promoter region of the gene; however, they didn't evaluate the
untranslated regions. That is one of my concerns about this
methodology.

untranslated regions. That is one of my concerns about this
methodology.
Response: In this study, we decided to focus on the promoter
region of this gene because previous studies [Yajima et al., 2010;
Jackson et al., 2011] have shown that its transcription was
particularly affected. This has now been clarified in the
Discussion section of our manuscript (Page 16, Line 24–28).
