Recognition of sialylated glycoconjugates is important for host cell invasion by Apicomplexan parasites. Toxoplasma gondii parasites penetrate host cells via interactions between their microneme proteins and sialylated glycoconjugates on the surface of host cells. However, the role played by sialic acids during infection with T. gondii is not well(More)
The paper summarizes the data on proliferation and gravity-related gene expression of osteoblasts that were obtained from an experiment conducted under simulated and real microgravity conditions. Simulated microgravity conditions obtained in a clinostat depress proliferation of both osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 and HeLa carcinoma cells. This depression of(More)
