Plant physiology

Koch JL, Nevins DJ.
PMID: 16667142
Plant Physiol. 1989 Nov;91(3):816-22. doi: 10.1104/pp.91.3.816.

Cell wall isolation procedures were evaluated to determine their effect on the total pectin content and the degree of methylesterification of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) fruit cell walls. Water homogenates liberate substantial amounts of buffer soluble uronic acid, 5.2...

1) Lines of Drosophila melanogaster derived from a double cross of four laboratory stocks and selected for more than 125 generations were investigated by the isoenzyme method. The reference line RE was held constantly at 25°C, the selection lines...

Assessment of glycogen phosphorylase isoenzyme BB as a biomarker for pre-eclampsia and small for gestational age.

Lancet (London, England)

McCarthy F, Doyle A, Khashan A, Kenny L.
PMID: 26312889
Lancet. 2015 Feb 26;385:S67. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(15)60382-8.

BACKGROUND: Glycogen phosphorylase is a key enzyme in the regulation of glycogen metabolism and consists of three isoenzymes, including glycogen phosphorylase isoenzyme BB (GPBB). Pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension, and small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants are complications in about 15% of all nulliparous...

Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of asthma have been published since 1990 and already new versions are being published. The recommendations for the treatment of asthma were organized around four components of effective asthma management: i) use of...

Serum adenosine deaminase and its isoenzyme activities in pregnancy.

OBJECTIVE: ADA is widely distributed in human tissues, which may contribute to the maturation of the immunological system, especially the proliferation and differentiation of lymphoid cells, and seems to be critical at different stages of the maturation process. The...

Screening for drug-induced alterations in the production and release of steroid hormones by porcine adrenocortical cells in vitro.

Toxicology in vitro : an international journal published in association with BIBRA

Jager LP, De Graaf GJ, Widjaja-Greefkes HC.
PMID: 20650241
Toxicol In Vitro. 1996 Oct;10(5):595-608. doi: 10.1016/s0887-2333(96)00047-1.

To screen drugs rapidly and at minimal expense for their potential to alter steroidogenesis, an in vitro model using porcine adrenocortical cells was developed. Pregnenolone, progesterone, deoxycorticosterone or corticosterone (all at 1 muM) were used as substrates. Drug-induced changes...

n-Butanol production in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is limited by the availability of coenzyme A and cytosolic acetyl-CoA.

Biotechnology for biofuels

Schadeweg V, Boles E.
PMID: 26913077
Biotechnol Biofuels. 2016 Feb 24;9:44. doi: 10.1186/s13068-016-0456-7. eCollection 2016.

BACKGROUND: Butanol isomers are regarded as more suitable fuel substitutes than bioethanol. n-Butanol is naturally produced by some Clostridia species, but due to inherent problems with clostridial fermentations, industrially more relevant organisms have been genetically engineered for n-butanol production....

Sevoflurane Alleviates Myocardial Ischemia Reperfusion Injury by Inhibiting P2X7-NLRP3 Mediated Pyroptosis.

Frontiers in molecular biosciences

Wu J, Cai W, Du R, Li H, Wang B, Zhou Y, Shen D, Shen H, Lan Y, Chen L, Zheng X, Huang D, Shi G.
PMID: 34765646
Front Mol Biosci. 2021 Oct 26;8:768594. doi: 10.3389/fmolb.2021.768594. eCollection 2021.

Myocardial ischemia is common in aging population. This study investigates the protective effect of Sevoflurane on myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury (MIRI) and its underlying mechanism. A total of 87 patients with a history of myocardial ischemia who underwent abdominal...

Determination of the potency of a novel saw palmetto supercritical CO2 extract (SPSE) for 5α-reductase isoform II inhibition using a cell-free in vitro test system.

Research and reports in urology

PMID: 27186566
Res Rep Urol. 2016 Apr 21;8:41-9. doi: 10.2147/RRU.S96576. eCollection 2016.

BACKGROUND: The nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-dependent membrane protein 5α-reductase catalyses the conversion of testosterone to the most potent androgen - 5α-dihydrotestosterone. Two 5α-reductase isoenzymes are expressed in humans: type I and type II. The latter is found primarily in...
