Role of dopamine in the physiology of T-cells and dendritic cells
Dendritic cells (DCs) are responsible for priming T-cells and for promoting their differentiation from naïve T-cells into appropriate effector cells. Because of their fundamental roles in controlling immunity, DCs and ...
Draft Genome Sequence of the Novel, Moderately Thermophilic, Iron- And Sulfur-Oxidizing Firmicute Strain Y002, Isolated from an Extremely Acidic Geothermal Environment
We report the draft genome sequence of the Firmicute strain Y002, a facultatively anaerobic, acidophilic bacterium that catalyzes the dissimilatory oxidation of iron and sulfur and the reduction of ferric iron. Analysis ...
Parental nucleosome segregation and the inheritance of cellular identity
Gene expression programmes conferring cellular identity are achieved through the organization of chromatin structures that either facilitate or impede transcription. Among the key determinants of chromatin organization are ...
Neuroimmune regulation of microglial activity involved in neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative diseases
Neuroinflammation constitutes a fundamental process involved in the progression of several neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis. ...
