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)
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)
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 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)
