Effects of combined progesterone and beta-estradiol treatment on the transcriptome of cultured human myometrial smooth muscle cells
(American Physiological Society, 2015)
A transcriptomic analysis of cultured human uterine smooth muscle cells (hUtSMCs) was performed in order to examine gene expression profiles in smooth muscle in an environment containing the two major steroid hormones that ...
Allele-specific transcriptional elongation regulates monoallelic expression of the IGF2BP1 gene
Background Random monoallelic expression contributes to phenotypic variation of cells and organisms. However, the epigenetic mechanisms by which individual alleles are randomly selected for expression are not known. ...
Long-term exposure of CdTe quantum dots on PC12 cellular activity and the determination of optimum non-toxic concentrations for biological use
Background: The unique and tuneable photonic properties of Quantum Dots (QDs) have made them potentially useful tools for imaging biological entities. However, QDs though attractive diagnostic and therapeutic tools, have ...
APCR, factor V gene known and novel SNPs and adverse pregnancy outcomes in an Irish cohort of pregnant women
Background: Activated Protein C Resistance (APCR), a poor anticoagulant response of APC in haemostasis, is the commonest heritable thrombophilia. Adverse outcomes during pregnancy have been linked to APCR. This study ...
