Word Expanding beyond biomedicine into the physical sciences, mathematics and engineering disciplines, BMC now offers a wider portfolio of subject fields on a biology research articles open access platform.
Androgen receptor, a nuclear steroid receptor and transcription factor, has a central role in the normal growth and development of the prostate gland, in prostate carcinogenesis, and in the castrate-resistant CR progression of PCa.
Understanding the critical molecular events that lead PCa cells to resist antiandrogens or anti-AR therapies is essential in developing successful treatments for CR or advanced stages of the disease. The synthetic cannabinoid WIN 55, is a potent cannabinoid receptor agonist with anticancer potential.
Experiments were performed to determine the effects of WIN on proliferation, cell cycle distribution, and programmed cell death in human osteosarcoma MG63 and Saos-2 cells. In livestock at post-mortem, these muscle properties determine aspects of meat quality and are measurable.
The conversion of muscle to meat mimics pathological processes associated with muscle ischemia, injury or damage in humans The recognition does not require specific accessory cells, antigen uptake, antigen processing, or MHC class I, class II, or class Ib expression.
This subset of T cells plays important roles in mediating innate immunity against a wide variety of infections and displays potent and broad cytotoxic activity against human tumor cells. The relevant odorants are detected by specialized antennal sensory neurons which project their sensory dendrites into hair-like structures, the sensilla.
Generally, the responsiveness of the antennal chemosensory cells is determined by specific receptors which may be either odorant receptors ORs or variant ionotropic receptors IRs.
Previously, we demonstrated that in locust the co-receptor for ORs ORco is only expressed in cells of sensilla basiconica and sensilla trichodea, suggesting that cells in sensilla coeloconica may express different types of chemosensory receptors.Research Articles Perivascular dendritic cells elicit anaphylaxis by relaying allergens to mast cells via microvesicles By Hae Woong Choi, Jutamas Suwanpradid, Il Hwan Kim, Herman F.
