mRNA decay analysis in Drosophila melanogaster: Drug-induced changes in glutathione S-transferase D21 mRNA stability
We have established an in vivo system to investigate mechanisms by which pentobarbital (PB), a psychoactive drug with a sedative effect, changes the rate of decay of gstD21 mRNA (encoding a Drosophila glutathione S-transferase). ...
Cell proliferation and cytotoxicity assays
(Bentham Science, 2016-11)
Cell viability is defined as the number of healthy cells in a sample and proliferation of cells is a vital indicator for understanding the mechanisms in action of certain genes, proteins and pathways involved cell survival ...
Challenges in the preparation of optical polymer composites with nanosized pigment particles: A review on recent efforts
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2012-09)
Blends of nanosized pigment particles and polymers are widely believed to offer the potential for the design of novel or at least improved materials. This review critically evaluates the recent literature with regard to ...
The importance of boron in biological systems
Boron is an essential element for plants and probably essential for human and animal health. Boron has a broad range of physiological effects on biological systems at low concentrations, whereas it is toxic to at high ...
Genes associated with T helper 17 cell differentiation and function
(Frontiers in Bioscience, 2016-06)
Interleukin-17 (IL-17)-producing T helper cells (Th17 cells) constitute a lineage of CD4 effector T helper cells that is distinct from the Th1 and Th2 CD4 phenotypes. In humans, Th17 differentiation is induced in the ...
Role of autophagy in the progression and suppression of leukemias
Autophagy is a physiological process in which cellular components are degraded by the lysosomal machinery. Thereby, organelles are recycled and monomers are produced in order to maintain energy production. Current studies ...
On the application of the Exp-function method to nonlinear differential-difference equations
When applying the Exp-function method to nonlinear-differential difference equations, Bekir (2010)  reported incorrect results. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
Major apoptotic mechanisms and genes involved in apoptosis
As much as the cellular viability is important for the living organisms, the elimination of unnecessary or damaged cells has the opposite necessity for the maintenance of homeostasis in tissues, organs and the whole organism. ...
Computing optical properties of ultra-thin crystals
An overview is given of recent advances in experimental and theoretical understanding of optical properties of ultra-thin crystal structures (graphene, phosphorene, silicene, MoS2 , MoSe2 , WS2 , WSe2 , h-AlN, h-BN, ...
Algorithms for the de novo sequencing of peptides from tandem mass spectra
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-10)
Proteomics is the study of proteins, their time- and location-dependent expression profiles, as well as their modifications and interactions. Mass spectrometry is useful to investigate many of the questions asked in ...
