Solute Carrier 15 (SLC15) family, alias H+-coupled oligopeptide cotransporter family, is a group of membrane transporters known for their role in the cellular uptake of di- and tripeptides (di/tripeptides) and peptide-like molecules. Of its members, SLC15A1 (PEPT1) chiefly mediates intestinal absorption of luminal di/tripeptides from dietary protein(More)

In mammals, T cells develop along two discrete pathways characterized by expression of either the αβ or the γδ T cell receptors. Human and mouse display a low peripheral blood γδ T cell percentage ("γδ low species") while sheep, bovine and pig accounts for a high proportion of γδ T lymphocytes ("γδ high species"). While the T cell receptor alpha (TRA) and(More)
By a combination of rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) we identified three T cell receptor delta variable (TRDV) subgroups and five joining (TRDJ) genes expressed in spleen, tonsils and blood of Camelus dromedarius. We provide evidence that the high diversity in sequence and length of the(More)
The relevant adsorption of cis-[Pt(NH3)2(P2O7)](2-) (phosphaplatin) on hydroxyapatite nanocrystals (nHAP) was observed and studied in water suspension. Phosphaplatin cytotoxicity, which is very low for HeLa, MCF-7 and HS-5 cell lines could be enhanced, reaching that of cisplatin, by interaction with solid nHAP. This effect stems from nHAP ability to(More)
