Consequences of metaphase II oocyte cryopreservation on mRNA content.
Central African Republic. In Cryobiology, 2011
We quantified the nuclear transcript mRNA responsible for the translation of proteins belonging either to trans-regulatory protein family or to functional structural proteins such as proteins involved in DNA structural organization (NAP1L1, TOP1, H1F0H1), chromosomal structure maintenance (SMC, SCC3, RAD21, SMC1A, SMC1B, STAG3, REC8), mitochondrial energetic pathways (ATP5GJ, SDHC), cell cycle regulation and processes (CLTA, MAPK6, CKS2) and staminal cell potency-development competence stage (DPPA3, OCT4, FOXJ2).
Expression of the hIGF-I gene driven by the Fhx/P25 promoter in the silk glands of germline silkworm and transformed BmN cells.
Suzhou, China. In Biotechnol Lett, 2011
The expression of the human insulin-like growth factor (hIGF-I) gene driven by the Fhx/P25 promoter in the silk glands of transgenic silkworms (Bombyx mori) and in transformed silkworm cells, was achieved using BmN cells transfected with a piggyBac vector, pigA3GFP-Fhx/P25-hIGF-ie-neo containing a neomycin-resistance gene (neo), a green fluorescent protein gene (gfp), an hIGF-I gene, and a helper plasmid containing the piggyBac transposase sequence under the control of the B. mori actin 3 (A3) promoter.
Role of Oct-4 during acquisition of developmental competence in mouse oocyte.
Parma, Italy. In Reprod Biomed Online, 2008
This review, through the analysis of the expression profile of developmentally competent or incompetent mouse oocytes, summarizes the results of recent studies showing that the Oct-4 transcription factor regulating the expression of Stella and Foxj2 at the Nanog locus could play a pivotal role in the establishment of the oocyte's developmental competence.

Oral chemotherapy in head and neck cancer.
Evanston, United States. In Drugs, 1998
The ribonuclease reductase inhibitor hydroxycarbamide (hydroxyurea) has been extensively studied in combination with 5-FU and radiotherapy (the FHX regimen) in patients with head and neck cancer, with high rates of local control.
