Unstable oxygen supply and glaucoma.
Basel, Switzerland. In Klin Monbl Augenheilkd, 2014
The major cause of fluctuations in the local oxygen tension is an unstable ocular blood flow (OBF).
Immunocontraceptive potential of the Ig-like domain of Izumo.
Shanghai, China. In Mol Reprod Dev, 2009
Data indicate that the Ig-like domain of Izumo plays an important role in the fertilization process, as verified by the dose-dependent reduction in fertilization rates in mouse IVF trials and mouse mating assay.
[Key sperm membrane proteins in sperm-egg fusion].
Shantou, China. In Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue, 2009
This article presents a detailed review of some of the key sperm membrane proteins closely related with fertilization, such as the Izumo, the ADAMs gene family and the Crisp gene family proteins, which is of practical significance for deeper insights into the mechanisms of sperm-egg fusion, as well as for the improvement of clinical diagnosis of male infertility and development of novel contraceptive drugs.
Sperm-egg adhesion and fusion in mammals.
Columbia, United States. In Expert Rev Mol Med, 2008
At least two plasma membrane proteins essential for sperm-oolemma fusion--IZUMO and CD9 on the male and female gametes, respectively--have been identified recently by classical cell biology approaches and confirmed by gene deletion.
Direct visualization of protein interactions in plant cells.
Montréal, Canada. In Nat Biotechnol, 2001
The protein NPR1/NIM1 is required for the induction of systemic acquired resistance (SAR) in plants and has been shown to interact with members of the TGA/OBF family of basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors.
