Here we report the production of marker-free transgenic plants expressing phenolic compounds with high pharmacological value. Our strategy consisted in simultaneous delivery of lox-target and cre-containing constructs into the plant genome by cotransformation. In the Cre-vector, the cre recombinase gene was controlled by a seed-specific napin promoter. In(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the histopathologic bases for the observed incidence of parkinsonism in families with C9ORF72 expansions, which typically cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and/or frontotemporal dementia. METHODS DNA was extracted from 377 brains with the histopathologic diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson disease or related disorders and(More)
Imatinib was the first targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor to be approved for clinical use, and remains first-line therapy for Philadelphia chromosome (Ph+)-positive chronic myelogenous leukaemia. We show that treatment of human glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tumour cells with imatinib and the closely-related drug, nilotinib, strikingly increases tyrosine(More)
UNLABELLED Chronic inflammation is strongly associated with an increased risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. The multidrug resistance 2 (Mdr2)-knockout (KO) mouse (adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette b4(-/-) ), a model of inflammation-mediated HCC, develops chronic cholestatic hepatitis at an early age and HCC at an adult age. To(More)
The interaction between VEGF-A and its neuropilin (NRP) receptors mediates a number of important biological effects. NRP1 and the related molecule NRP2 are widely expressed on multiple tumour types and throughout the tumour vasculature, and are emerging as critical molecules required for the progression of angiogenic diseases. Given the increasing evidence(More)
Accumulation of genetic and epigenetic aberrations leads to malignant transformation of normal cells. Functional studies of cancer using genomic and proteomic tools aim to reveal the true complexity of the processes leading to cancer development in humans. Until recently, diagnosis and prognosis of cancer was based on conventional pathologic criteria and(More)
Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) combined with optical projection tomography (OPT) has the potential to map Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET) readouts in space and time in intact transparent or near transparent live organisms such as zebrafish larvae, thereby providing a means to visualise cell signalling processes in their physiological context.(More)
DOK1 regulates platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB-stimulated glioma cell motility. Mechanisms regulating tumour cell motility are essential for invasion and metastasis. We report here that PDGF-BB-mediated glioma cell invasion and migration are dependent on the adaptor protein downstream of kinase 1 (DOK1). DOK1 is expressed in several glioma cell(More)
A mathematical model for the description of electron and proton transport in chloroplasts of higher plants has been developed. The model takes into account the light-induced changes in the pH values of stroma (pH(o)) and intrathylakoid lumen (pH(i)), electron transport from photosystem 2 (PS2) to NADP+, a terminal electron acceptor of photosystem 1 (PS1),(More)
A fundamental property of neural crest (NC) migration is contact inhibition of locomotion (CIL), a process by which cells change their direction of migration upon cell contact. CIL has been proven to be essential for NC migration in amphibians and zebrafish by controlling cell polarity in a cell contact-dependent manner. Cell contact during CIL requires the(More)
