Anatoli Y Kabakov et al.
PloS one, 10(4), e0123718-e0123718 (2015-04-24)
During long-term potentiation (LTP) of excitatory synapses, Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is activated by Ca(2+) influx through NMDA receptors that potentiate AMPA receptor currents by insertion of additional GluR1-containing receptors at the synapse and by increasing AMPA channel conductance
Carlos Mendoza-Palomares et al.
Eukaryotic cell, 7(4), 684-697 (2008-02-19)
Cysteine proteases have been shown to be essential virulence factors and drug targets in trypanosomatids and an attractive antidisease vaccine candidate for Trypanosoma congolense. Here, we describe an important amplification of genes encoding cathepsin B-like proteases unique to T. congolense.
Pasqualino de Antonellis et al.
PloS one, 6(9), e24584-e24584 (2011-09-21)
Through negative regulation of gene expression, microRNAs (miRNAs) can function as oncosuppressors in cancers, and can themselves show altered expression in various tumor types. Here, we have investigated medulloblastoma tumors (MBs), which arise from an early impairment of developmental processes
Michelle Griffin et al.
PloS one, 6(8), e23404-e23404 (2011-08-23)
Non-unions pose complications in fracture management that can be treated using electrical stimulation (ES). Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) are essential in fracture healing; however, the effect of different clinical ES waveforms on BMMSCs cellular activities remains unknown. We
Hisashi Miura et al.
Nucleic acids research, 37(3), 778-792 (2008-12-17)
Mammalian tissue- and/or time-specific transcription is primarily regulated in a combinatorial fashion through interactions between a specific set of transcriptional regulatory factors (TRFs) and their cognate cis-regulatory elements located in the regulatory regions. In exploring the DNA regions and TRFs
Natsumi Shimizu et al.
International journal of hematology, 87(3), 239-245 (2008-03-05)
Although coculture of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) with stromal cells is a useful system to study hematopoiesis in the niche, little is known regarding the precise cellular and molecular mechanisms of maintaining HSCs through cell-cell interactions. The murine preadipose stromal
Tiefeng Cao et al.
Oncogene, 38(27), 5356-5366 (2019-05-16)
Uterine leiomyomas or fibroids (UFs) are benign tumors characterized by hyperplastic smooth muscle cells and excessive deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM). Afflicting ~80% of women, and symptomatic in 25%, UFs bring tremendous suffering and are an economic burden worldwide; they
Kyle S Enger et al.
Journal of water and health, 14(6), 950-960 (2016-12-14)
Many different household water treatment (HWT) methods have been researched and promoted to mitigate the serious burden of diarrheal disease in developing countries. However, HWT methods using bromine have not been extensively evaluated. Two gravity-fed HWT devices (AquaSure™ and Waterbird™)
Barbara Zonta et al.
Neuron, 69(5), 945-956 (2011-03-09)
The axon initial segment (AIS) is critical for the initiation and propagation of action potentials. Assembly of the AIS requires interactions between scaffolding molecules and voltage-gated sodium channels, but the molecular mechanisms that stabilize the AIS are poorly understood. The
Wong Yau Hsiung et al.
Evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine : eCAM, 2011, 293060-293060 (2011-03-23)
The anticancer potential of Leea indica, a Chinese medicinal plant was investigated for the first time. The crude ethanol extract and fractions (ethyl acetate, hexane, and water) of Leea indica were evaluated their cytotoxicity on various cell lines (Ca Ski
Simona Giunta et al.
The Journal of cell biology, 190(2), 197-207 (2010-07-28)
The signaling cascade initiated in response to DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) has been extensively investigated in interphase cells. Here, we show that mitotic cells treated with DSB-inducing agents activate a "primary" DNA damage response (DDR) comprised of early signaling events
