Staphylococcus species belong to one of the few bacterial genera that are completely lysozyme resistant, which greatly contributes to their persistence and success in colonizing the skin and mucosal… Expand
Comparative proteome analysis of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm and planktonic cells and correlation with transcriptome profiling
Pathogenic staphylococci can form biofilms in which they show a higher resistance to antibiotics and the immune defense system than their planktonic counterparts, which suggests that the cells in a… Expand
Proteomic analysis of shoot‐borne root initiation in maize (Zea mays L.)
Postembryonically formed shoot‐borne roots make up the major backbone of the adult maize root stock. In this study the abundant soluble proteins of the first node (coleoptilar node) of wild‐type and… Expand

The large‐conductance, voltage‐dependent and Ca2+‐dependent K+ (BK) channel links membrane depolarization and local increases in cytosolic free Ca2+ to hyperpolarizing K+ outward currents, thereby… Expand
Thymic carcinoma with overexpression of mutated KIT and the response to imatinib.
To the Editor: In April 2002, a 54-year-old man presented with thoracic pain and respiratory distress; a mediastinal mass, 7.7 by 6 cm, was found on positron-emission tomographic and computed tomog...
Topotecan – A Novel Topoisomerase I Inhibitor: Pharmacology and Clinical Experience
Topotecan, a water-soluble analogue of camptothecin, is a newly available cytotoxic agent which acts as an inhibitor of topoisomerase I, an enzyme necessary for DNA replication. Topotecan is a… Expand
Comparative proteome analyses of maize (Zea mays L.) primary roots prior to lateral root initiation reveal differential protein expression in the lateral root initiation mutant rum1
The embryonically preformed primary root is the first root type of maize that emerges after germination. In this study the abundant soluble proteins of 2.5‐day‐old primary roots of wild‐type and… Expand
Effect of adjuvant bisphosphonates on disease-free survival in early breast cancer: Retrospective analysis results in an unselected single-center cohort
Bisphosphonates are the gold standard for preventing skeletal-related events in patients with bone-metastatic cancer and have been investigated for reducing cancer treatment-induced bone loss.… Expand
[Late toxicity after chemotherapy of malignant testicular tumors].
Improved survival in testicular cancer has been accompanied by concern about long-term side effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Secondary malignant neoplasia represents one of the worst possible… Expand
