Inhibitory effects of Antibiofilm compound 1 in Staphylococcus aureus biofilms.
Hiroshima, Japan. In Microbiol Immunol, Feb 2016
We demonstrated ABC-1 inhibits biofilm formation in these strains at micromolar concentrations regardless of the strains' dependence on Polysaccharide Intercellular Adhesin (PIA), cell wall-associated protein dependent or cell wall- associated extracellular DNA (eDNA).
AraC-type regulator Rsp adapts Staphylococcus aureus gene expression to acute infection.
Shanghai, China. In Infect Immun, Jan 2016
Genome-wide transcriptional analysis and modeling of regulatory networks indicated that up-regulation of the accessory gene regulator (Agr) and down-regulation of the ica operon coding for the biofilm exopolysaccharide, polysaccharide intercellular adhesin (PIA), were central to the regulatory impact of Rsp on virulence.
Chromogranin A in gastrinomas: Promises and pitfalls.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Clin Chim Acta, Jul 2015
But the review suggests that CgA-quantitation using processing-independent analysis (PIA) may provide an equally high diagnostic sensitivity and in addition offer a simple possibility for estimation of the tumor-burden.
The diet as a cause of human prostate cancer.
Baltimore, United States. In Cancer Treat Res, 2013
This milieu appears to spawn proliferative inflammatory atrophy (PIA) lesions, a type of focal atrophy that represents the earliest of prostate cancer precursor lesions.
