Release of outer membrane vesicles by Gram-negative bacteria is a novel envelope stress response.
(Mol Microbiol, 2007-01)
Conditions that impair protein folding in the Gram-negative bacterial envelope cause stress. The destabilizing effects of stress in this compartment are recognized and countered by a number of signal transduction mechanisms. ...
Collagen biomarkers for arthritis applications.
(Biomark Insights, 2007-02-07)
Serum C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Target for Therapy or Trouble?
(Biomark Insights, 2007-02-07)
High sensitivity serum C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has come into clinical use as a marker of risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). In addition to a role as a marker of disease, CRP has also been implicated in the pathogenesis ...
The CO/HO system reverses inhibition of mitochondrial biogenesis and prevents murine doxorubicin cardiomyopathy.
(J Clin Invest, 2007-12)
The clinical utility of anthracycline anticancer agents, especially doxorubicin, is limited by a progressive toxic cardiomyopathy linked to mitochondrial damage and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Here we demonstrate that ...
Multiple, conserved cryptic recombination signals in VH gene segments: detection of cleavage products only in pro B cells.
(J Exp Med, 2007-12-24)
Receptor editing is believed to play the major role in purging newly formed B cell compartments of autoreactivity by the induction of secondary V(D)J rearrangements. In the process of immunoglobulin heavy (H) chain editing, ...
Cdc25 and Wee1: Analogous opposites?
(Cell Division, 2007-05-04)
Movement through the cell cycle is controlled by the temporally and spatially ordered activation of cyclin-dependent kinases paired with their respective cyclin binding partners. Cell cycle events occur in a stepwise fashion ...
Control of Emi2 activity and stability through Mos-mediated recruitment of PP2A.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2007-10-16)
Before fertilization, vertebrate eggs are arrested in meiosis II by cytostatic factor (CSF), which holds the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) in an inactive state. It was recently reported that Mos, an integral component ...
Entry and competition in generic biologics
(Managerial and Decision Economics, 2007-06-01)
Patents for several blockbuster biological products are expected to expire soon. The Food and Drug Administration is examining whether biologies can and should be treated like pharmaceuticals with regard to generics. In ...
Gene expression signatures that predict radiation exposure in mice and humans.
(PLoS Med, 2007-04)
BACKGROUND: The capacity to assess environmental inputs to biological phenotypes is limited by methods that can accurately and quantitatively measure these contributions. One such example can be seen in the context of exposure ...
Beta-arrestin-mediated beta1-adrenergic receptor transactivation of the EGFR confers cardioprotection.
(J Clin Invest, 2007-09)
Deleterious effects on the heart from chronic stimulation of beta-adrenergic receptors (betaARs), members of the 7 transmembrane receptor family, have classically been shown to result from Gs-dependent adenylyl ...
