Regulation of human MUC7 mucin gene expression by cigarette smoke and Pseudomonas aeruginosa lipopolysaccharide in human airway epithelial cells and in MUC7 transgenic mice
MUC7 gene encodes a small-mucin-glycoprotein that functions in lubricating/protecting epithelial surface of the human oral cavity/respiratory tract. To increase the understanding of the regulation of MUC7 expression, this ...
Among-continent evolutionary relations of the subgenus Simocephalus (Simocephalus) (Crustacean: Daphniidae)
The biodiversity of freshwater littoral zone microcrustaceans is poorly known outside of Europe. The toxicological model Simocephalus (Daphniidae), for example, is common on every continent, but has an unknown or controversial ...
Phosphatidylserine mediated enhancement of the therapeutic efficacy of B domain deleted recombinant factor VIII
Factor VIII (FVIII) is an important cofactor in the blood coagulation cascade. Deficiency or dysfunction of FVIII causes hemophilia A, a life threatening bleeding disorder. Replacement therapy using FVIII is the first line ...
Protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPOX) targeted gene silencing based photodynamic therapy (PDT) in combination with photofrin-PDT
Photodynamic therapy ( PDT ) has proved to be an effective approach for the treatment of solid tumors. Tumors are treated with an exogenous photosensitizer and the photosensitizer is excited using light. The excited ...
Production of polyclonal antibodies to late erythroblast-3 (LEB-3), a protein expressed during erythropoiesis and spermatogenesis
Previous studies in the lab identified a number of partial messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that are differentially expressed at the later as opposed to early stages of the production of red blood cells (terminal erythroid ...
TbDSS-1 functions in mitochondrial RNA turnover and surveillance in Trypanosoma brucei
The parasitic protozoan Trypanosoma brucei is the causative agent of African sleeping sickness and nagana in wildlife and livestock. T. brucei is a member of the Order Kinetoplastida, so termed because of the unusual ...
Electro-mechanical measurements on membranes of Shaker-transfected cells
Electro-mechanical (EM) and mechano-electrical (ME) transduction is a general, as well as a specialized process in biology. We have studied EM transduction at molecular resolution in membranes of live cells to examine ...
Reinforcing value of interval and continuous exercise above and below the ventilatory threshold
Purpose. During play children engage in intermittent bouts of activity less than 15 seconds in duration, much like interval training. These short bouts comprise 95% of their total physical activity. Despite this observed ...
Development and evaluation of a new high-sensitivity, region-of-interest, x-ray imaging system for neuro-interventional applications
Neurovascular image-guided interventional (IGI) procedures require very high resolution (3 to 10 lp/mm), large dynamic range, and real-time imaging capability for visualization and navigation of endovascular devices during ...
