Engineered Insulin Secretion from Neuroendocrine Cells Isolated From Human Thyroid.
Decatur, United States. In World J Surg, 19 Mar 2014
Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) in conditioned medium and cell lysates was determined by reverse transcription (RT)-PCR, ELISA, and immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Isolation yielded an average of 2.2 × 10(6) cells/g thyroid tissue, which stained for calcitonin/calcitonin gene-related protein, expressed genes consistent with NE origins, and secreted GRP.
Mortalin - a multipotent chaperone regulating cellular processes ranging from viral infection to neurodegeneration.
Bratislava, Slovakia. In Acta Virol, 2012
This protein has been attributed many cellular functions, including energy generation, stress response, carcinogenesis and involvement in neurodegenerative diseases, which is well documented by many names it has been given (CSA, MOT, MOT2, GRP75, PBP74, GRP-75, HSPA9B, MGC4500, MTHSP75, and mortalin).
