Identification of differentially expressed genes in isogenic highly metastatic and poorly metastatic cell lines of R3230AC rat mammary adenocarcinoma
Tumour metastasis occurs as a result of a cascade of events including alterations in the expression of various genes. The identification of such genes is essential to understanding formation of metastasis. In a previous ...
Optimization of pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) conditions for thermophilic bacilli
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2004-11)
Although thermophilic members of the genus Bacillus are known to tolerate extreme environmental conditions, they appeared to be readily damaged upon mechanical manipulations. This fact was evidenced in genotyping of some ...
Identification of extracellular enzyme producing alkalophilic bacilli from Izmir province by 16S-ITS rDNA RFLP
Aims: To screen industrially important extracellular enzymes from the newly isolated alkalophilic bacilli and to characterize them by phenotypic and 16S-internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA restriction pattern analysis. ...
RFLP of 16S-ITS rDNA region to differentiate Lactobacilli at species level
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2004)
The 16S-ITS (internal transcribed spacer) region of the rrn operon was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The amplification products were analysed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) using a set ...
Identification of extracellular enzyme producing thermophilic bacilli from Balcova (Agamemnon) geothermal site by ITS rDNA RFLP
Aims: Molecular characterization of extracellular enzyme producing thermophilic bacilli from Balcova geothermal site. Methods and Results: Three types of geothermal samples were collected: mud, re-injection water, and ...
Prolactin receptor expression by splenocytes from rats in various hormonal states
Prolactin (PRL) is mitogenic for lymphocytes in vitro, but the responsiveness of lymphocytes depends on the in vivo hormonal status of the rats from which the cells were obtained. Lymphocytes from ovariectomized (OVX) rats, ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
(European IOS Press, 2002)
Prolactin receptor gene expression in rat splenocytes and thymocytes from birth to adulthood
In vivo and in vitro studies have indicated that the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL) is an immunoregulator and functions in the development of the neonatal immune system. In this study, prolactin receptor (PRL-R) ...
Prolactin receptor gene expression in rat splenocytes and thymocytes during oestrous cycle, pregnancy and lactation
Much evidence suggests that prolactin (PRL) has an immunoregulatory function. Part of this evidence is that the receptors for PRL are present on lymphocytes. Probably the effects of PRL on cells of the immune system depend ...
Isolation and characterization of Bacillus thuringiensis strains from different grain habitats in Turkey
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium and it produces insecticidal crystal (cry) proteins during sporulation. Because the genetic diversity and toxic potential of Bt strains differ from ...
