Function and regulation of protein kinase C alpha in the intestinal epithelium
The protein kinase C (PKC) family of serine/threonine kinases participates in regulation of cell proliferation and survival in a variety of systems. PKCα is a ubiquitously expressed member of the PKC family. In the intestinal ...
A protective effect of exercise against interpersonal stress-induced cardiovascular reactivity in youth
Background. Empirical evidence suggests an association between blood pressure reactivity to psychological stress in childhood and hypertension in adulthood. Acute aerobic exercise dampens blood pressure reactivity to ...
Effect of connexin composition on pore structure of gap junction channels and their permeability to metabolites
Knowledge of actual signals and the rate at which they are transferred between cells by gap junctions has long stood as an impediment to developing a detailed understanding of the function of different connexins in various ...
The effects of enamel matrix derivative on human gingival fibroblasts in vitro study: Proliferation, differentiation and cytokines expression
Objectives. Enamel matrix derivative (Emdogain ® , EMD) is used clinically for periodontal regeneration, where it stimulates cementum formation and promotes gingival healing. Several studies have provided histologic and ...
The role of DNA replication in mismatch repair
DNA Mismatch Repair (MMR) plays an important role in maintaining genomic fidelity and stability in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans, and is known to be closely associated with DNA replication and present ...
Localization and semi-quantitation of NMDA2A and NMDA2B receptor mRNAs in auditory cortex
NMDA (N-methyl-d-aspartate) receptors are essential for learning and formation of memory. Recent research reported that expression of NMDA2A and NMDA2B receptor mRNAs in the cortices of adult rats decreased after intensive ...
An emulsion of dodecafluoropentane (DDFPe) sustained oxygen delivery in spontaneously breathing swine after hemorrhagic shock
Twelve spontaneously air breathing anesthetized male swine had a 48.7 ± 0.55 (s.e.) % reduction of their circulating blood volume through a controlled hemorrhage. The large decrease in the swines' circulating blood volume ...
The effects of Quaternary glacial cycles on the evolution of Holarctic Daphnia
Abstract not available.
Insights into eyespots: Gene expression and function in the development of butterfly wing color patterns
The eyespot color patterns of the butterfly, Bicyclus anynana , have become an important system in which to examine the developmental basis of evolutionary novelties. Many candidate genes have been screened, based upon ...
Studies of structure, hydration and dynamics of biological macromolecules by use of NMR spectroscopy
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has emerged as a powerful tool for studying biological macromolecules in aqueous solution. This dissertation describes the efforts to study the structure, hydration and dynamics of biological ...
