A systematic review of biomarkers in the diagnosis of infective endocarditis.
Århus, Denmark. In Int J Cardiol, Feb 2016
Based on current research, N-terminal-pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) alone or in combination with Cystatin C (Cys C), lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP), troponins, aquaporin-9 (AQP9), S100 calcium binding protein A11 (S100A11), E-selectin (CD62E) and VCAM-1 (CD54) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are potential biomarkers for future studies.
A comparison of fluorescent Ca(2+) indicators for imaging local Ca(2+) signals in cultured cells.
Irvine, United States. In Cell Calcium, Dec 2015
Altogether, nine synthetic Ca(2+) dyes (Fluo-4, Fluo-8, Fluo-8 high affinity, Fluo-8 low affinity, Oregon Green BAPTA-1, Cal-520, Rhod-4, Asante Calcium Red, and X-Rhod-1) and three genetically-encoded Ca(2+)-indicators (GCaMP6-slow, -medium and -fast variants) were tested; criteria include the magnitude, kinetics, signal-to-noise ratio and detection efficiency of local Ca(2+) puffs.
Joining S100 proteins and migration: for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2014
This review summarises some of the reported regulatory functions of S100 proteins (namely S100A1, S100A2, S100A4, S100A6, S100A7, S100A8/S100A9, S100A10, S100A11, S100A12, S100B and S100P) on cellular migration and invasion, established in both culture and animal model systems and the possible mechanisms that have been proposed to be responsible.
