A standard nomenclature for gene designation in the Rosaceae
The plant family Rosaceae is comprised of a highly diverse group of plants, with a wide range of ornamental and agricultural uses throughout the world. Comparative genomic analyses between rosaceous species are increasingly ...
Organization of collagen bundles during tendon healing in rats treated with L-NAME

The post-transcriptional gene silencing pathway in Eucalyptus
Post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) is a conserved surveillance mechanism that identifies and cleaves double-stranded RNA molecules and their cellular cognate transcripts. The RNA silencing response is actually used ...
Nitric oxide modulates lipopolysaccharide-induced endothelial platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule expression via interleukin-10
We have shown previously that nitric oxide (NO) controls platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule (PECAM-1) expression on both neutrophils and endothelial cells under physiological conditions. Here, the molecular mechanism ...
Intra- and interspecific divergence in the nuclear sequences of the clock gene period in species of the Drosophila buzzatii cluster
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2010)
We have measured nucleotide variation in the CLOCK/CYCLE heterodimer inhibition domain (CCID) of the clock X-linked gene period in seven species belonging to the Drosophila buzzatii cluster, namely D. buzzatii, Drosophila ...
Gene structure and splicing in schistosomes
Schistosomes are blood dwelling platyhelminths with a complex life cycle and persist in the definitive host during decades, indicating that they are very successful parasites. The challenge of infecting two hosts from ...
Central NOS inhibition differentially affects vasopressin gene expression in hypothalamic nuclei in septic rats
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
Our aim was to investigate the effect of central NOS inhibition on hypothalamic arginine vasopressin (AVP) gene expression, hormone release and on the cardiovascular response during experimental sepsis. Male Wistar rats ...
L-NAME-treatment alters ectonucleotidase activities in kidney membranes of rats
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2010)
Aims: To investigate the effect of N omega-Nitro-L-arginine methyl ester CL-NAME) treatment, known to induce a sustained elevation of blood pressure, on ectonucleotidase activities in kidney membranes of rats. Main methods: ...
