Effect of vitamin E and C supplementation on oxidative damage and total antioxidant capacity in lead-exposed workers.
The molecular response of the antioxidant system and the effects of antioxidant supplementation against oxidative insult in lead-exposed workers has not been sufficiently studied. In this work,Expand

Locus on Chromosome 6p Linked to Elevated HDL Cholesterol Serum Levels and to Protection Against Premature Atherosclerosis in a Kindred With Familial Hypercholesterolemia
Abstract— Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a highly atherogenic genetic disorder leading to premature coronary heart disease (CHD), usually before 60 years of age. We studied anExpand

Membrane-Initiated Estradiol Signaling of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition-Associated Mechanisms Through Regulation of Tight Junctions in Human Breast Cancer Cells
Tumor cells utilize inappropriate epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) mechanisms during the invasive process. It is becoming increasingly clear that estradiol (E2) induces breast cancer cellExpand

Nitric Oxide is Involved in the Upregulation of IFN-γ and IL-10 mRNA Expression by CD8+ T Cells During the Blood Stages of P. chabaudi AS Infection in CBA/Ca Mice
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the clearance of several types of bacteria, viruses and parasites. Although the roles of NO and CD8+ T cells in the immune response to malaria have been extensivelyExpand

Giardipain-1, a protease secreted by Giardia duodenalis trophozoites, causes junctional, barrier and apoptotic damage in epithelial cell monolayers.
The adhesion of Giardia duodenalis trophozoites to intestinal epithelial cells allows the onset and maintenance of giardiasis. During these interactions, epithelial cells can be committed toExpand
