Exercise-induced differential changes in gene expression among arterioles of skeletal muscles of obese rats.
United States. In J Appl Physiol, Oct 2015
IPA canonical pathway analysis revealed 18 pathways with significant changes in gene expression when analyzed across vessels and revealed that EX induces increased expression of the following genes in all arterioles examined: Shc1, desert hedgehog protein (Dhh), adenylate cyclase 4 (Adcy4), G protein binding protein, alpha (Gnat1), and Bcl2l1 and decreased expression of ubiquitin D (Ubd) and cAMP response element modulator (Crem).
Ovarian superstimulation using FSH combined with equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) upregulates mRNA-encoding proteins involved with LH receptor intracellular signaling in granulosa cells from Nelore cows.
Botucatu, Brazil. In Theriogenology, 2014
The granulosa cells were harvested from follicles and mRNA abundance of GNAS, GNAQ, GNA11, PLCB1, PLCB, PLCB4, and adenylyl cyclase isoforms (ADCY3, ADCY4, ADCY6, ADCY8, and ADCY9) was measured by real-time reserve transcription followed by polymerase chain reaction.
Acipensins - Novel Antimicrobial Peptides from Leukocytes of the Russian Sturgeon Acipenser gueldenstaedtii.
Saint Petersburg, Russia. In Acta Naturae, 2014
The peptides Ac1, Ac2, Ac3, Ac4, and Ac5 were found to be the N-terminal acetylated fragments 1-0, 1-5, 1-9, 1-4, and 1-1 of the histone H2A, respectively, while Ac6 was shown to be the 62-5 fragment of the histone H2A.
Determination of trace levels of parabens in real matrices by bar adsorptive microextraction using selective sorbent phases.
Lisbon, Portugal. In J Chromatogr A, 2014
By comparing six polymer (P1, P2, P3, P4, P5 and P6) and five activated carbon (AC1, AC2, AC3, AC4 and AC5) coatings through BAμE, AC2 exhibited much higher selectivity and efficiency from all the sorbent phases tested, even when compared with the commercial stir bar sorptive extraction with polydimethylsiloxane. Assays performed through BAμE(AC2, 1.7mg) on 25mL of ultrapure water samples spiked at the 8.0μg/L level, yielded recoveries ranging from 85.6±6.3% to 100.6±11.8%,
Screening of purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.) accessions for high salt tolerance.
Kuala Selangor, Malaysia. In Scientificworldjournal, 2013
Based on dry matter yield reduction, among all 25 purslane accessions 2 accessions were graded as tolerant (Ac7 and Ac9), 6 accessions were moderately tolerant (Ac3, Ac5, Ac6, Ac10, Ac11, and Ac12), 5 accessions were moderately susceptible (Ac1, Ac2, Ac4, Ac8, and Ac13), and the remaining 12 accessions were susceptible to salinity stress and discarded from further study.
