The cellular cytoskeleton, adhesion receptors, extracellular matrix composition, and their spatial distribution are together fundamental in a cell's balanced mechanical sensing of its environment. We show that, in lung injury, extracellular matrix-integrin interactions are altered and this leads to signalling alteration and mechanical missensing. The(More)
GNRH significantly inhibits proliferation of a proportion of cancer cell lines by activating GNRH receptor (GNRHR)-G protein signaling. Therefore, manipulation of GNRHR signaling may have an under-utilized role in treating certain breast and ovarian cancers. However, the precise signaling pathways necessary for the effect and the features of cellular(More)
The herpes simplex type 1 biochemically transformed human cell line, HB-1, was fused with thymidine kinase deficient rodent cells, and 18 hybrids were isolated using the HAT-ouabain selection system. The selected enzyme, viral thymidine kinase, was present in all 18 hybrids. In 16 of 18 hybrids the viral gene for thymidine kinase cosegregated with the human(More)
BACKGROUND Despite awareness of the negative health and financial outcomes of delirium, systems to routinely assess and manage the condition are absent in clinical practice. We report the development and pilot evaluation of a Delirium Early Monitoring System (DEMS), designed to be completed by non-medical staff to influence clinical processes within(More)
The capsid of Bacillus subtilis bacteriophage SP3 is assembled via a prohead intermediate which subsequently encapsulates DNA and attaches a tail. The prohead contains a ring-like core structure. The spokes which extend from the core to the inner prohead surface are thought to form a scaffold for the polymerization of the prohead. Ninety percent of the(More)
The herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2)-transformed human cell line HB-2-3 was fused with thymidine kinase (TK)-deficient mouse cells [LM(TK-)], and 12 independent hybrids were isolated with the use of the HAT (hypoxanthine, amethopterin, and thymidine)-ouabain selection system. Discontinuous polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis studies demonstrated that the(More)
