Expression of TrkB at the neuromuscular junction during aging
There is increasing evidence that age associated alterations in innervation may underlie many of the changes that occur in skeletal muscle during senescence. Aging of the neuromuscular system is associated with loss of ...
Tumor vasculature as a therapeutic target for calcitriol in cancer
Calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol), the active form of vitamin D is known to have anti-tumor activity both in vitro and in vivo in a wide variety of malignant cell types. Calcitriol is not only anti-proliferative ...
Role of the Escherichia coli beta-clamp, RecA activation and the SOS response in DNA polymerase selection
Error-prone DNA polymerases (pols) are conserved in all three kingdoms of life to promote the potentially mutagenic process of translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) following DNA damage. Due to their reduced fidelity, organisms ...
Computational fluid dynamic studies of endovascular stents for treating cerebral aneurysms
Endovascular stents provide a potentially viable treatment paradigm for cerebral aneurysms by modifying their hemodynamics. To understand how different endovascular stent designs and number of stents used can differentially ...
Characterization of pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) proteins in Trypanosoma brucei
Pentatricopeptide repeat proteins (PPRs) are one of the largest newly identified protein families. PPR is characterized by the presence of a tandemly repeated 35 amino acids motif. It is extremely abundant in plants, and ...
The effect of platelet-rich plasma on primary human alveolar bone cells
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a source of growth factors that can promote surgical healing. It has been shown to increase the viability and proliferation of osteosarcoma cells (Kanno et al., 2005) and immortalized cell ...
