Obesity is associated with a decrease in expression but not with the hypermethylation of thermogenesis-related genes in adipose tissues
BackgroundImpaired thermogenesis can promote obesity. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether the expression of thermogenesis-related genes is altered in adipose tissues of obeseExpand

Machine Perfusion Preservation Improves Renal Allograft Survival
Machine perfusion (MP) has been used as the kidney preservation method in our center for over 10 years. The first, small (n = 74) prospective, single‐blinded randomized study comparing MP and ColdExpand

Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation: analysis of donor factors.
There are no urgent indications for simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation. So our policy is to harvest only a pancreas in good biologic condition. The criteria for acceptance of a pancreasExpand

Association of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A9 (UGT1A9) gene polymorphism with kidney allograft function.
BACKGROUND UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) are a group of enzymes involved in the detoxification and excretion of xeno- and endobiotics. Polymorphic variants of the UGT1A9 gene were shown toExpand

The influence of immuosuppressive therapy on the development of CD4+CD25+ T cells after renal transplantation.
A growing number of studies suggest that CD4(+)CD25(+) T regulatory (Treg) cells play a significant role to downregulate the immune response to alloantigens. In this study, we investigated theExpand

The use of thromboelastometry in the assessment of hemostasis during orthotopic liver transplantation reduces the demand for blood products.
BACKGROUND Bleeding due to fibrinolysis is a serious intraoperative complication during orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). For a number of years aprotinin was used to minimize risk of thisExpand

Synthesis of enantiomerically pure (S)-mandelic acid using an oxynitrilase–nitrilase bienzymatic cascade: a nitrilase surprisingly shows nitrile hydratase activity
Abstract Benzaldehyde was converted into enantiomerically pure ( S )-mandelic acid by sequential HCN addition and hydrolysis in the presence of a cross-linked enzyme aggregate composed of the ( SExpand
