[S1E7] Measure of Disorder
The most widely used experimental techniques for IDP studies include protease mapping, Far-UV circular dichroism spectroscopy (CD), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), In-cell NMR, analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), fluorescence correlation and vibrational spectroscopy, among others . IDPs and IDDs present hydrodynamic properties that indicate that they are extended in solution and present low levels of consolidated secondary structure, high conformational flexibility and dynamic residual secondary structure ensembles, which are highly sensitive to changes in the local environment such as pH, ionic strength and temperature , . It has been proposed that the multiple protein interactions involving IDPs can be mediated by linear motifs, short linear interaction-prone segments  often present within disordered regions that undergo disordered to ordered transitions upon binding . Some IDPs present strong conformational tendencies towards the bound conformation in the unbound state, suggesting the presence of local preferences for transient secondary structure elements within binding sites .
The proportion of IDDs and IDPs was noticed to be particularly high in viral genomes, where a small number of gene products or their combination is sufficient for completion of the viral life cycle. This increased proportion of disordered regions has been associated with high adaptability and mutation rates, and also with the high structural flexibility that allows interaction with multiple cellular and viral targets conferring a multifunctional nature , . Paradigmatic examples are papillomaviruses (PVs), which are small double-stranded DNA viruses with circular genomes of less than 9 kbp and only eight polypeptide products . PVs are medically relevant human pathogens, since persistent infections can lead to different types of cancers, in particular cervical cancer . Since PVs lack the required enzymes for viral genome replication and transcription, they depend on the cell machinery in order to carry out their viral life cycle . In this regard, early proteins E6 and E7 interact with the tumor suppressors p53 and retinoblastoma tumor suppressor (pRb), respectively, leading to their proteasomal degradation . Degradation of pRb mediated by E7 causes the release of the general transcription factor E2F, promoting S phase entry and therefore cell cycle progression . E7 is the main transforming product from PVs  and has been reported to interact with a large number of cellular targets affecting multiple cell regulatory pathways , . These features highlight the binding promiscuity of the E7 oncoprotein, and may explain the many different mechanisms through which E7 can lead to cell transformation and cancer .
Interestingly, in all the experimental conditions under which we studied E7N (see below), both prolines, P6 and P17, were fully in trans configuration. Only one set of peaks was observed for each proline residue and, as determined from 13Cβ and 13Cγ chemical shifts , they corresponded to the trans conformation. In addition, in the NOESY spectrum, the diagnostic strong Hδ-Hα (i, i-1) NOEs for the trans-proline isomer was observed for P6 and P17 residues, while no Hα-Hα (i, i-1) cross peak, characteristic for the cis-proline conformation, was detected for either proline residue (data not shown). This is in contrast with the linker region joining the disordered N-terminal and the globular C-terminal domains of E7, which also harbors two proline residues (P41 and P47), that present a cis-trans isomeric equilibrium .
Interestingly, a very recent publication reported secondary α-helical structures from homology and ab initio modeling in the same regions that we describe here by solvent stabilization and NMR . There is an important difference in that the extent of formation of the HELIX II is largely pH dependent and is in equilibrium with pII structure, something that cannot be predicted by modeling. In any case, the ID domain of HPV-16 E7 samples a discrete number of conformations, but its most stable structure in solution is extended and intrinsically disordered.

A quiet, college-bound teen, Nicole Verma, is seated in a wheelchair. Derek, Alex, and Nicole's parents are also in the room. Derek asks whether Nicole is having problems with spasticity, a disorder where certain muscles are continuously contracted. Nicole isn't sure and asks her mom. Her mother says that spasms make Nicole's legs dance. They bring up her college plans and she is going to a community college on their block. Her father mentions she could have had her pick of out of state schools. Mrs. Verma jumps back in and says Nicole is not ready for that. Alex smiles and says, "Why? Not because she's in a wheelchair." He winks at Nicole. She looks away with a smirk and slightly blushes. Derek suggests they could perform a cystoplasty to enlarge Nicole's bladder and could improve her quality of life. Mr. Verma thinks they should consider it. Mrs. Verma is very reluctant to go forward with the procedure because it is invasive, risky, and has a 20% chance of not working. Derek addresses Nicole and tells her to think about it. There are health benefits, she could live her life more normally, she could potentially have a sex life. She looks at Alex, he smiles. Mrs. Verma says they are there for the pain procedure and that is all.
At the foot of the bed, Bailey says she does not condone stealing patients but with that being said, she says, "Way to go." Shane says the first pregnancy test he took was supposed to be a joke. Addison tells him that he is in no way pregnant. Shane is relieved then asks why his pregnancy test was positive. Bailey says they'll find out. Addison passes by Meredith not happy to see her. He asks why his picture is being taken. Izzie and Cristina say it is for medical journals, monthly case reports, and annual banquet highlight reels. A pager goes off. Cristina and Izzie pose for a picture with Shane. The pager goes off again. Bailey asks whose it is. Cristina says it's hers. She does not want to go, she found Shane. Bailey tells her they don't ignore pages and gestures for her to go. Bailey measure Shane's belly. The photographer keeps snapping photos. Meredith asks if they'll be finished soon. She can sense Shane's discomfort. Bailey seems not to hear her.Cristina arrives and Nurse Debbie puts several charts in front of her. One patient needs a rectal exam, one has explosive diahhrea and other patients with unpleasant cases. She looks at the names of the patients then asks why she was paged, none of them are her patients. Debbie says they're her patients if she's Bailey's intern.

In Season 1 Episode 13, Hannah Baker goes to see Mr. Porter, the school counselor, in an appointment she schedules with him a week after being raped by Bryce Walker.. A trained clinical psychologist and a clinical psychology graduate student who has used these depression symptom severity measures as a research assistant evaluated the 13 minutes long scene where Hannah talks with Mr. Porter. The clinical psychologist and graduate student then filled out the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and the Hamilton Depression Scale (HAM-D) about Hannah and what they could observe about her strictly from her meeting with Mr. Porter. If it was not evident from the scene or a problem, then a score of 0 was highlighted. The copy of their combined report with the mean score of their answers for each question is below.
The HAM-D and the MADRS were chosen because they are free, short, simple and validated separately and as complementary. Both measures are practitioner-rated scales on depression that are widely used in adjunct, with higher scores on each measure denoting more severe depression/symptoms.
A depressive disorder is not the same as experiencing a brief depressive mood. However, if a depressed mood lasts for longer than two weeks, it can be classified as a major depressive disorder. Another indicator of a depressive disorder is if the condition impacts multiple areas of your daily functioning. This can include familial relationships, social interactions, and/or academic performance. Other symptoms include:
Having one or more of these symptoms doesn't guarantee that an individual has a major depressive disorder. Similarly, there are individuals that could be diagnosed with a major depressive disorder but not show as many symptoms. Despite not being diagnosed as having a major depressive disorder, individuals who possess multiple symptoms can still experience a negative impact on their daily lives.
Individuals with depression have a variety of experiences that lead to the development of symptoms. The causes of a depressive disorder can come from childhood events, times of trauma, long term stress, and/or biological conditions. Examples of these causes can include: 041b061a72
