GPC3 reduces cell proliferation in renal carcinoma cell lines
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2014-08-29)
Background: Glypican 3 (GPC3) is a member of the family of glypican heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs). The GPC3 gene may play a role in controlling cell migration, negatively regulating cell growth and inducing apoptosis. ...
Platelet lysate 3D scaffold supports mesenchymal stem cell chondrogenesis: An improved approach in cartilage tissue engineering
Articular lesions are still a major challenge in orthopedics because of cartilage's poor healing properties. A major improvement in therapeutics was the development of autologous chondrocytes implantation (ACI), a ...
Beta cell coupling and connexin expression change during the functional maturation of rat pancreatic islets
(SpringerNew YorkEUA, 2010)
A flow cytometric procedure for the quantification of cell adhesion in complex mixtures of cells
We present a simple non-radioactive cytometry-based assay that permits the simultaneous quantitation of cell adhesion of distinct subsets of cells contained in a mixture without any previous fractionation. The procedure ...
Therapeutic potential of hyporesponsive CD4(+) T cells in autoimmunity
(Frontiers Media, 2015)
The interaction between dendritic cells (DCs) and T cells is crucial on immunity or tolerance induction. In an immature or semi-mature state, DCs induce tolerance through T-cell deletion, generation of regulatory T cells, ...
Epithelial cell-enhanced metabolism by low-level laser therapy and epidermal growth factor
Reepithelialization and wound closure are the desired outcome for several ulcerative conditions. Such resolution reduces the possibility of wound contamination and maintenance of the injury and improves the reestablishment ...
A strategy to identify genomic expression at single-cell level or a small number of cells
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2005)
Insulin is secreted upon glucose stimulation by both gastrointestinal enteroendocrine K-cells and L-cells engineered with the preproinsulin gene
Transgenic mice carrying the human insulin gene driven by the K-cell glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) promoter secrete insulin and display normal glucose tolerance tests after their pancreatic beta-cells have ...
A hydrogel scaffold that maintains viability and supports differentiation of dental pulp stem cells
Objectives: The clinical translation of stem cell-based Regenerative Endodontics demands further development of suitable injectable scaffolds. Puramatrix™ is a defined, self-assembling peptide hydrogel which instantaneously ...
