Epigenetic modifications of splicing factor genes in myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia.
Australia. In Cancer Sci, 2014
Here, we examined promoter DNA hypermethylation of nine splicing factors, SF3B1, SRSF2, U2AF1, ZRSR2, SF3A1, HNRNPR, MATR3, ZFR, and YBX3 in 10 leukemic cell lines and 94 MDS or AML patient samples from the Australasian Leukemia and Lymphoma Group Tissue Bank.
Identification and in vitro characterization of phage-displayed VHHs targeting VEGF.
Tehrān, Iran. In J Biomol Screen, 2014
The binding affinity of three VHHs, ZFR-1, ZFR-2, and ZFR-5, ranged from 2.5 to 80 nM, and among them, ZFR-5, which was selected for proliferation assay, significantly inhibited the endothelial cell growth in a dose-dependent manner.
Agonist-stimulated turnover of the phosphoinositides and the regulation of adrenocortical steroidogenesis.
Edinburgh, United Kingdom. In J Mol Endocrinol, 1990
In rat and bovine adrenocortical cells, the non-cAMP stimulatory agonists AII, acetylcholine and vasopressin have been shown to promote receptor/G-protein-mediated activation of a polyphosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C. In turn, studies in rat ZG and bovine ZG and ZFR cells have provided strong evidence for a causal relationship between the rapid and sustained formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate and DG by phospholipase C, and the subsequent increase in steroidogenesis in these cell types.
