Ultrafine particulate pollutants induce oxidative stress and mitochondrial damage.
The objectives of this study were to determine whether differences in the size and composition of coarse (2.5-10 micro m), fine (< 2.5 microm), and ultrafine (< 0.1 microm) particulate matter (PM)Expand

Induction of Heme Oxygenase-1 Expression in Macrophages by Diesel Exhaust Particle Chemicals and Quinones via the Antioxidant-Responsive Element1
Diesel exhaust particles (DEP) contain organic chemicals that contribute to the adverse health effects of inhaled particulate matter. Because DEP induce oxidative stress in the lung and inExpand

Phylogeny of Dictyoptera: Dating the Origin of Cockroaches, Praying Mantises and Termites with Molecular Data and Controlled Fossil Evidence
Understanding the origin and diversification of organisms requires a good phylogenetic estimate of their age and diversification rates. This estimate can be difficult to obtain when samples areExpand

Stress-Induced Fas Ligand Expression in T Cells Is Mediated through a MEK Kinase 1-Regulated Response Element in the Fas Ligand Promoter
ABSTRACT T lymphocytes undergo apoptosis in response to a variety of stimuli, including exposure to UV radiation and γ-irradiation. While the mechanism by which stress stimuli induce apoptosis is notExpand

USE OF A STRATIFIED OXIDATIVE STRESS MODEL TO STUDY THE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF AMBIENT CONCENTRATED AND DIESEL EXHAUST PARTICULATE MATTER
Although several epidemiological studies have shown a positive relationship between exposure to ambient air particulate matter (PM) and adverse health effects in humans, there is still a fundamentalExpand

Activation of the mouse heme oxygenase-1 gene by 15-deoxy-Delta(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) is mediated by the stress response elements and transcription factor Nrf2.
The mechanism of heme oxygenase-1 (ho-1) gene activation by 15-deoxy-Delta(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) was examined. 15d-PGJ(2) stimulated expression of HO-1 mRNA and protein and of aExpand

Mesozoic chrysopid-like Planipennia: a phylogenetic approach (Insecta: Neuroptera)
Abstract The Mesozoic chrysopid-like Planipennia are revised and several new genera and species are described. The new superfamily Chrysopoidea is proposed for the extant and fossil Chrysopidae, andExpand

The c-Jun N-terminal kinase cascade plays a role in stress-induced apoptosis in Jurkat cells by up-regulating Fas ligand expression.
T lymphocytes undergo apoptosis in response to cellular stress, including UV exposure and gamma irradiation. However, the mechanism by which stress stimuli induce apoptosis is not well understood.Expand

Inflammatory cytokines synergize with the HIV-1 Tat protein to promote angiogenesis and Kaposi's sarcoma via induction of basic fibroblast growth factor and the alpha v beta 3 integrin.
The Tat protein of HIV-1, a transactivator of viral gene expression, is released by acutely infected T cells and, in this form, exerts angiogenic activities. These have linked the protein to theExpand
