Atherosclerotic lesions preferentially develop in areas of the vasculature exposed to nonlaminar blood flow and low fluid shear stress, whereas laminar flow and high fluid shear stress are athero-protective. We have identified a set of genes including NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase-1 (NQO1), heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), ferritin (heavy and light chains),(More)
Sun, Jun, Michael E. Hobert, Anjali S. Rao, Andrew S. Neish, and James L. Madara. Bacterial activation of -catenin signaling in human epithelia. Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol 287: G220– G227, 2004. First published February 5, 2004; 10.1152/ajpgi.00498. 2003.—The mucosal lining of the human intestine is constantly bathed in a milieu of commensal(More)
Four of six human monoclonal IgM proteins were found to react best with Klebsiella polysaccharides containing 3,4py beta DGal (pyruvic acetalated D-galactopyranose), one with Klebsiella polysaccharides with 4,6pyDGlc; the sixth is uncharacterized. The combining sites of two of these (IgMWEA and IgMNAE) were essentially indistinguishable by quantitative(More)
The tetrasaccharide-alditol, RL 0.8, from one stage of Smith degradation of Klebsiella K33, was subjected to Smith degradation to yield a disaccharide-alditol. The purified disaccharide-alditol was characterized by sugar analysis, methylation analysis, and mass spectrometry. The following structure was found. (formula see text)
The mucosal lining of the human intestine is constantly bathed in a milieu of commensal gut flora, the vast majority of these being nonpathogenic microorganisms. Here, we demonstrate that microbial-epithelial cell interactions not only affect proinflammatory pathways but also influence beta-catenin signaling, a key component in regulating epithelial cell(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the antioxidant activities and phytochemical analysis of Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata. The phytochemical screening was carried on the leaves extracts of Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata revealed the presence of some active ingredients such as Alkaloids, Tannins, Saponins, Phenols, Glycosides, Steroids,(More)
In order to study the biochemistry and genetics of the virulent virus MB78 of Salmonella typhimurium, 31 temperature-sensitive mutants of the phage were isolated following mutagenesis with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine. These have been classified into six complementation groups (A through F). Linkage between different complementation groups has been(More)
Salmonella-epithelial cell interactions are known to activate the proinflammatory NF-kappaB signaling pathway and have recently been found to also influence the beta-catenin signaling pathway, an important regulator of epithelial cell proliferation and differentiation. Here, using polarized epithelial cell models, we demonstrate that these same(More)
Plasmodium falciparum DNA, isolated from the merozoite stage, was cleaved with HindIII and cloned in pBR322 and lambda L47.1 vectors. Plasmid clones containing 13.4, 7.0, 4.3, 4.1 and 1.5 kb inserts were characterized in some detail. The inserts contain several repeating units of smaller size. Nucleic acid hybridization studies showed that the repeat(More)
