Analyses were made on a Trypanosoma congolense contig coding a putative P2-like nucleoside transporter (the contig was named in this study TcoAT1). The sequence includes a start and stop codon and presents a high similarity with the gene TbAT1 of T. brucei (Smallest Sum Probability 2.8e-136). To investigate a possible link between point mutations and(More)
MAPK-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2) plays a pivotal role in the cell response to (inflammatory) stress. Among others, MK2 is known to be involved in the regulation of cytokine mRNA metabolism and regulation of actin cytoskeleton dynamics. Previously, MK2-deficient mice were shown to be highly resistant to LPS/d-Galactosamine-induced hepatitis.(More)
Small solid liposomes made from distearoylphosphatidyl choline and cholesterol (molar ratio 2:1) showed significant stability in plasma, with a half-life of about 24 hr after intravenous injection in rats. The major cellular uptake of intact liposomes was found in the liver and spleen, peaking after 2-4 hr in the liver and after 24 hr in the spleen.(More)
