Optimization of transfection of green fluorescent protein in pursuing mesenchymal stem cells in vivo
(Turkish Society of Hematology, 2008)
Objective: Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) has been used as a marker of gene expression and a single cell marker in living organisms in cell biology studies. The important areas that GFP is used are expression levels of ...
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 ...
Effects of deleting mitochondrial antioxidant genes on life span
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) damage biomolecules, accelerate aging, and shorten life span, whereas antioxidant enzymes mitigate these effects. Because mitochondria are a primary site of ROS generation and also a primary ...
Methionine sulfoxide reduction and the aging process
Aging has been described for multicellular and asymmetrically dividing organisms, but the mechanisms are poorly understood. Oxidation of proteins is considered to be one of the major factors that leads to aging. Oxidative ...
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 ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
(European IOS Press, 2002)
Effect of thioredoxin deletion and p53 cysteine replacement on human p53 activity in wild-type and thioredoxin reductase null yeast
(American Chemical Society, 2009)
Reporter gene transactivation by human p53 is inhibited in budding yeast lacking the TRR1 gene encoding thioredoxin reductase. To investigate the role of thioredoxin in controlling p53 activity, the level of reporter gene ...
Conservation of gene function in the Solanaceae as revealed by comparative mapping of domestication traits in eggplant
(Genetics Society of America, 2002-08)
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) for domestication-related traits were identified in an interspecific F2 population of eggplant (Solanum linnaeanum × S. melongena). Although 62 quantitative trait loci (QTL) were identified ...
Mapping quantitative trait loci in inbred backcross lines of Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium (LA1589)
(National Research Council of Canada, 2002-11)
Although tomato has been the subject of extensive quantitative trait loci (QTLs) mapping experiments, most of this work has been conducted on transient populations (e.g., F2 or backcross) and few homozygous, permanent ...
