Effects of Nanoparticle Size on Multilayer Formation and Kinetics of Tethered Enzymes.
Ithaca, United States. In Bioconjug Chem, Oct 2015
Here, we standardize NP attachment strategy (oriented immobilization via hexahistidine tags) and composition (Ni-NTA coated gold NPs), to test the impact of NP size (⌀5, 10, 20, and 50 nm) on multilayer formation, activity, and kinetic parameters (kcat, KM, kcat/KM) of enzymes representing three different classes: glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (GPI), an isomerase; Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase S (GAPDHS), an oxidoreductase; and pyruvate kinase (PK), a transferase.
Pancreatic cancer susceptibility loci and their role in survival.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Plos One, 2010
Data show that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in ABO, sonic hedgehog (SHH), telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT), nuclear receptor subfamily 5, group A, member 2 (NR5A2) were found to be associated with pancreatic cancer risk.
Renin secretion and total body sodium: pathways of integrative control.
Odense, Denmark. In Clin Exp Pharmacol Physiol, 2010
3. Renal functions involved in sodium homeostasis include: (i) the rate of glomerular filtration (GFR) determined by renal haemodynamics, including tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF); (ii) proximal tubular reabsorption involving glomerulotubular balance (GTB) and neurohumoral control; (iii) macula densa mechanisms influencing TGF and renin secretion; and (iv) distal tubular reabsorption dominated by the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS).
