A role for COX2-derived PGE2 and PGE2-receptor subtypes in head and neck squamous carcinoma cell proliferation
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
The overexpression of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 is a frequent event in squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck (HNSCC), and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are potent inhibitors of COX-1 and COX-2, exert ...
Receptores EP1 E EP3 modulam as crises epilépticas induzidas por pentilenotetrazol e ácido caínico em camundongos
(Universidade Federal de Santa MariaBRFarmacologiaUFSMPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Farmacologia, 2013-06-27)
Epilepsy is one of the most common neurologic disorders. It has been suggested that seizures may be facilitaded by inflammation. PGE2 is one of the most important inflammatory mediators, and facilitates pentylenetetrazol ...
EPS II-dependent autoaggregation of sinorhizobium meliloti planktonic cells
Planktonic cells of Sinorhizobium meliloti, a Gram-negative symbiotic bacterium, display autoaggregation under static conditions. ExpR is a LuxR-type regulator that controls many functions in S. meliloti, including synthesis ...
Effect of medium composition and temperature and pH changes on exopolysaccharide yields and stability during Streptococcus thermophilus LY03 fermentations
(Elsevier Science, 2002-12-15)
To increase the exopolysaccharide (EPS) yields from Streptococcus thermophilus LY03 and to unravel the nature of the EPS degradation process, fermentation experiments were carried out with this strain in a customized MRS ...
Semi-defined media for the exopolysaccharide (EPS) production by Lactobacillus helveticus ATCC 15807 and evaluation of the components interfering with the EPS quantification
Growth and exopolysaccharide (EPS) production by Lactobacillus helveticus ATCC 15807 was evaluated in semi-defined media. Lactose (as carbon source) and CaCl2 proved to be the major stimulating factors for an optimal EPS ...
