The Hsp90 co-chaperone Sgt1 governs Candida albicans morphogenesis and drug resistance.
(PLoS One, 2012)
The molecular chaperone Hsp90 orchestrates regulatory circuitry governing fungal morphogenesis, biofilm development, drug resistance, and virulence. Hsp90 functions in concert with co-chaperones to regulate stability and ...
Human longevity and variation in GH/IGF-1/insulin signaling, DNA damage signaling and repair and pro/antioxidant pathway genes: cross sectional and longitudinal studies.
(Exp Gerontol, 2012-05)
Here we explore association with human longevity of common genetic variation in three major candidate pathways: GH/IGF-1/insulin signaling, DNA damage signaling and repair and pro/antioxidants by investigating 1273 tagging ...
The role of GRK6 in animal models of Parkinson's disease and L-DOPA treatment.
(Sci Rep, 2012)
G protein-coupled Receptor Kinase 6 (GRK6) belongs to a family of kinases that phosphorylate GPCRs. GRK6 levels were found to be altered in Parkinson's Disease (PD) and D(2) dopamine receptors are supersensitive in mice ...
EphB2 receptor controls proliferation/migration dichotomy of glioblastoma by interacting with focal adhesion kinase.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most frequent and aggressive primary brain tumors in adults. Uncontrolled proliferation and abnormal cell migration are two prominent spatially and temporally disassociated characteristics ...
Tissue engraftment of hypoxic-preconditioned adipose-derived stem cells improves flap viability.
(Wound Repair Regen, 2012-11)
Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have the ability to release multiple growth factors in response to hypoxia. In this study, we investigated the potential of ASCs to prevent tissue ischemia. We found conditioned media from ...
