Infection and apparent invasion of Vero cells by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis probably uses many different mechanisms to establish itself in the host and cause disease. In this work, we assess an in vitro model system which uses cultured mammalian cells to investigate ...
The thrombocyte aggregation process in the turtle Phrynopys hilarii (Chelonia). An ultrastructural study
This study investigates the thrombocyte aggregation process in the South American fresh water turtle (Phrynopys hilarii) using electron microscopy. Blood was taken from surgically exposed lateral neck vessels often turtles ...
Autologous stem cell transplantation for early type 1 diabetes mellitus
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2008)
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is the result of the autoimmune response against pancreatic insulin producing cells. This autoimmune response begins months or even years before the first presentation of signs and symptoms ...
Epiblast embryo stem cells give origin to adult pluripotent cell populations: Primordial germ cell, pericytic and haematopoyetic stem cells. A review Las células madre del epiblasto dan origen a poblaciones de células pluripotentes adultas: Células germin
(Universidad de la Frontera, 2009)
Adult stem cells are great promise to the future of regenerative therapy, and understanding of its embryonic origin permit the discrimination of stem cell sources. Embryonic stem cells derived from inner cell mass of ...
Natural killer cells as helper cells in dendritic cell cancer vaccines
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-01)
Vaccine-based cancer immunotherapy has generated highly variable clinical results due to differing methods of vaccine preparation and variation in patient populations among other lesser factors. Moreover, these clinical ...
The role of mitochondria and biotransformation in abamectin-induced cytotoxicity in isolated rat hepatocytes
Abamectin (ABA), which belongs to the family of avermectins, is used as a parasiticide; however, ABA poisoning can impair liver function. In a previous study using isolated rat liver mitochondria, we observed that ABA ...
