Biomaterial constructs for delivery of multiple therapeutic genes: a spatiotemporal evaluation of efficacy using molecular beacons
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013-06-03)
Gene therapy is emerging as a potential therapeutic approach for cardiovascular pathogenesis. An appropriate therapy may require multiple genes to enhance therapeutic outcome by modulating inflammatory response and ...
Cb1 and cb2 cannabinoid receptor antagonists prevent minocycline-induced neuroprotection following traumatic brain injury in mice
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2013-08-19)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its consequences represent one of the leading causes of death in young adults. This lesion mediates glial activation and the release of harmful molecules and causes brain edema, axonal ...
Single nucleotide polymorphisms within the bovine dlk1-dio3 imprinted domain are associated with economically important production traits in cattle
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-09-03)
Previous studies show that DNA sequence variation within the mammalian DLK1-DIO3 imprinted domain influences production traits in domestic livestock, most notably the ovine callipyge phenotype. We assessed genotype-phenotype ...
Robust, efficient, and practical electrogene transfer method for human mesenchymal stem cells using square electric pulses
(Mary Ann Liebert Inc, 2013-10-01)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent nonhematopoietic cells with the ability to differentiate into various specific cell types, thus holding great promise for regenerative medicine. Early clinical trials have ...
A gene regulatory network underlying the formation of pre-placodal ectoderm in xenopus laevis
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-16)
Background: The neural plate border ectoderm gives rise to key developmental structures during embryogenesis, including the neural crest and the preplacodal ectoderm. Many sensory organs and ganglia of vertebrates develop ...
Identification of novel cis-regulatory elements of eya1 in xenopus laevis using bac recombineering
(Springer Nature, 2017-11-03)
The multifunctional Eya1 protein plays important roles during the development of cranial sensory organs and ganglia, kidneys, hypaxial muscles and several other organs in vertebrates. Eya1 is encoded by a complex locus ...
Early growth response-1 is a regulator of dr5-induced apoptosis in colon cancer cells
(Springer Nature, 2010-01-19)
Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci
(Springer Nature, 2017-10-23)
Breast cancer risk is influenced by rare coding variants in susceptibility genes, such as BRCA1, and many common, mostly non-coding variants. However, much of the genetic contribution to breast cancer risk remains unknown. ...
Thiamine plays a critical role in the acid tolerance of listeria monocytogenes
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-11-14)
Understanding the molecular basis of acid tolerance in the food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is important as this property contributes to survival in the food-chain and enhances survival within infected hosts. The ...
Identification and validation of oncologic mirna biomarkers for luminal a-like breast cancer
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2014-01-31)
Introduction: Breast cancer is a common disease with distinct tumor subtypes phenotypically characterized by ER and HER2/neu receptor status. MiRNAs play regulatory roles in tumor initiation and progression, and altered ...
