Identification of sufficient basolateral-targeting sequence in N-terminus of human sodium-dependent vitamin C transporter 2
Human sodium-dependent vitamin C transporters, hSVCT1 and hSVCT2 are responsible for the uptake of L-ascorbic acid in the body. Sharing 66% amino acid sequence homology, these two transporters are functionally localized ...
Apo A-IV and LXR mRNA expression in gonadotropin stimulated human ovarian granulosa cell line KGN
Background. Follicular fluid high density lipoprotein (FF-HDL) has been shown to be associated with the quality of embryos derived from in vitro fertilization (IVF). In vitro studies examining the ovarian granulosa cell ...
Inducing trauma into neuroblastoma cells and synthetic neural networks using optical tweezers
The laser tweezers have become a very useful tool in the fields of physics, chemistry, and biology. My intent is to use the laser tweezers to induce trauma into neuroblastoma cells, cells that resemble neural cells when ...
Heterologous NH2-terminal basolateral targeting sequence for multipass transmembrane protein in epithelial cells
Sodium-dependent vitamin C transporters (SVCTs), SVCT1 and SVCT2, share 66% identical amino acid sequence but differentially localize to the apical and basolateral surface in MDCK cells, respectively. The N-terminal sequence ...
