Relationship between Use Value and Ecological Importance of Floristic Resources of Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest in the Balsas River Basin, México. The use of seasonally dry tropical forest in the Balsas River Basin, Mexico was utilized as a model to study the relationship between the use value and the ecological importance of wild flora in nine study(More)
C-Reactive protein (CRP) is a trace component of normal human serum which has a mol. wt of 105,000 and is composed of five apparently identical subunits arranged in cyclic symmetry. The serum concentration of this protein is known to increase dramatically in response to acute inflammatory or necrotic processes. We report here that in the presence of high(More)
Adult, canine intervertebral disc cells were isolated with a sequential digestion of pronase and bacterial collagenase. The nonchondrodystrophoid nucleus pulposus exhibits two populations of cells: large notochordal cells and smaller chondrocyte-like cells. The cells from the transition zone and anulus fibrosus are uniform in size, ranging from 17 to 21(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was to identify the integrin subunits present on the cell surface of human corneal epithelial cells. The authors determined to show whether type IV collagen, heparin-binding peptides of type IV collagen (Hep-I, Hep-II, and Hep-III), fibronectin, and GRGDSP promote cell adhesion of human corneal epithelial cells. Type IV collagen(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work was to show epidermal growth factor (EGF)-dependent migration of human corneal epithelial cells to fibronectin and GRGDSP peptide. The authors assessed the role of cell surface integrin heterodimer alpha 5 beta 1 in mediating haptotactic cell migration to fibronectin by the use of specific function-blocking integrin antibodies.(More)
The goal of periodontal therapy includes not only the halting of the progressive loss of connective tissue attachment but also the restitution of those parts of the supporting apparatus which have been destroyed. The cells which repopulate this area may originate from any number of the different tissue components of the periodontium: the dentogingival(More)
