The xylan-degrading enzyme system oftalaromyces emersonii: novel enzymes with activity against arylβ-d-xylosides and unsubstituted xylans
(Portland Press Ltd., 1993-03-01)
Talaromyces emersonii, a thermophilic aerobic fungus, produces a complete xylan-degrading enzyme system when grown on appropriate substrates. In this paper we present the physicochemical and catalytic properties of three ...
In vivo gene transfer of inducible nitric oxide synthase to carotid arteries from hypercholesterolemic rabbits
(Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2003-04-10)
Background and Purpose-Hypercholesterolemia is associated with endothelial dysfunction. Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is upregulated in atherosclerotic vessels. However, its role in the regulation of vascular ...
Cloning and characterization of the rainbow trout (oncorhynchus mykiss) type ii interleukin-1 receptor cdna
A homologue of mammalian type II interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1RII) was isolated from a rainbow trout cDNA library by differential hybridization using a suppression subtractive hybridization generated probe enriched far ...
Influence of activated charcoal, porcine gastric mucin and β-cyclodextrin on the morphology and growth of intestinal and gastric helicobacter spp.
(Microbiology Society, 2002-03-01)
Bile-tolerant Helicobacter spp. are emerging human and animal pathogens. However, due to their fastidious nature, which requires nutrient-rich complex media to grow, infection with these bacteria may be underestimated. The ...
Migrastatin analogues inhibit canine mammary cancer cell migration and invasion
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013-10-08)
Background: Cancer spread to other organs is the main cause of death of oncological patients. Migration of cancer cells from a primary tumour is the crucial step in the complex process of metastasis, therefore blocking ...
Micrornas as prognostic indicators and therapeutic targets: potential effect on breast cancer management
(American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), 2008-01-15)
The discovery of microRNAs (miRNA) as novel modulators of gene expression has resulted in a rapidly expanding repertoire of molecules in this family, as reflected in the concomitant expansion of scientific literature. ...
Early growth response-1 is a regulator of dr5-induced apoptosis in colon cancer cells
(Springer Nature, 2010-01-19)
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 ...
Overexpression of wnt5a in mouse epidermis causes no psoriasis phenotype but an impairment of hair follicle anagen development
Increased Wnt5a expression has been observed in psoriatic plaques. However, whether Wnt5a overexpression directly causes psoriasis is unknown. In this study, we generated transgenic (TG) mice with epidermal Wnt5a overexpression ...
Cutting edge: il-7 regulates the peripheral pool of adult ror + lymphoid tissue inducer cells
(The American Association of Immunologists, 2009-07-27)
During fetal life, CD4(+)CD3(-) lymphoid tissue inducer (LTi) cells are required for lymph node and Peyer's patch development in mice. In adult animals, CD4(+) CD3(-) cells are found in low numbers in lymphoid organs. ...
