Protective effect of zinc on cyclophosphamide-induced hematoxicity and urotoxicity
(Humana Press, 2008-12)
Cyclophosphamide (CP) is widely used for the treatment of neoplastic diseases; however, its toxicity causes dose-limiting side effects. Zinc (Zn) is an essential trace element and has important biological functions that ...
Antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of edible zein films incorporated with lysozyme, albumin proteins and disodium EDTA
In this study, partially purified lysozyme was incorporated into zein films in combination with chickpea albumin extract (CPAE), bovine serum albumin (BSA) and disodium EDTA. The zein films showed an inherent free radical ...
Organogenesis from transformed tomato explants
(Humana Press, 2005)
Tomato was one of the first crops for which a genetic transformation system was reported involving regeneration by organogenesis from Agrobacterium-transformed explants. Since the initial reports, various factors have been ...
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). ...
