Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
(European IOS Press, 2002)
Deep sequencing reveals two Jurkat subpopulations with distinct miRNA profiles during camptothecin-induced apoptosis
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs of about 19-25 nt that regulate gene expression posttranscriptionally under various cellular conditions, including apoptosis. The miRNAs involved in modulation of apoptotic events ...
Biofabrication of in situ self assembled 3D cell cultures in a weightlessness environment generated using magnetic levitation
(Nature Publishing, 2018-12)
Magnetic levitation though negative magnetophoresis is a novel technology to simulate weightlessness and has recently found applications in material and biological sciences. Yet little is known about the ability of the ...
Characterization of the BETA1 gene, which might play a role in Beta vulgaris subsp. Maritima salt tolerance
Salinity stress has a negative impact on plant growth, which affects homeostasis and productivity. The uptake of nonessential salt ions changes the osmotic balance of the cell and causes dehydration. Higher plants develop ...
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 ...
Secreted Wnt antagonists in leukemia: A road yet to be paved
Wnt signaling has been a topic of research for many years for its diverse and fundamental functions in physiological (such as embryogenesis, organogenesis, proliferation, tissue repair and cellular differentiation) and ...
Sensitive and specific detection of ligands using engineered riboswitches
Riboswitches are RNA elements found in non-coding regions of messenger RNAs that regulate gene expression through a ligand-triggered conformational change. Riboswitches typically bind tightly and specifically to their ...
Transcriptomic analysis of boron hyperaccumulation mechanisms in Puccinellia distans
Puccinellia distans, common alkali grass, is found throughout the world and can survive in soils with boron concentrations that are lethal for other plant species. Indeed, P. distans accumulates very high levels of this ...
Genome-wide association mapping of yield components and drought tolerance-related traits in cotton
Drought causes serious yield losses in cotton production throughout the world. Association mapping allows identification and localization of the genes controlling drought-related traits which will be helpful in cotton ...
