Air pollution in Calcutta elicits adverse pulmonary reaction in children.
TLDR
The study demonstrated that children inhaling grossly polluted air of Calcutta suffer from adverse lung reactions and genetic abnormality in the exposed tissues.
Light chain contribution to specificity in anti-DNA antibodies.
TLDR
Results indicate that L chains in anti-DNA Ab are able to modulate DNA binding and contribute contact sites for additional determinants on a complex autoantigen.
Differential expression of the cell adhesion molecules ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin in normal and posttransplantation myocardium. Cell adhesion molecule expression in human cardiac allografts.
TLDR
ICAM-1 expression is strongly correlated with histologically significant cardiac allograft rejection and the use of PECam-1 staining as a vascular marker permits quantitative analysis of ICAM- 1 expression.
Down-regulation of caspase-2 by rottlerin via protein kinase C-delta-independent pathway.
TLDR
Results suggest that rottlerin induces down-regulation of caspase-2 via PKC delta-independent but ubiquitin proteasome-mediated pathway, which can explain its antiapoptotic function during DNA damage-induced apoptosis.
Plasma Catecholamine Levels and Neurobehavioral Problems in Indian Firefighters
TLDR
The job of firefighting appears to be associated with stimulation of sympathetic activity and a rise in the prevalence of neurobehavioral symptoms.
Patronage and Representation at the Huviska Vihāra a Kusāna-Period Monastery in Mathurā
Art and inscriptions from the Jamālpur site in the southern section of Mathurā city help characterize an early Buddhist monastic community and its relationship with lay patrons of non-royal
Effects of Woodsmoke Exposure on Airway Inflammation in Rural Guatemalan Women
TLDR
Compared to using an open wood fire for cooking, use of a chimney stove was associated with lower gene expression of MMP-9, a potential mediator of airway remodeling, which may explain some of the observed association between prolonged biomass smoke exposure and COPD.
Micronucleus Frequencies and Nuclear Anomalies in Exfoliated Buccal Epithelial Cells of Firefighters
TLDR
Micronucleus and other nuclear anomalies reflect genetic changes, events associated with carcinogenesis, and unveil a high risk of developing cancer among firefighters.
Abundance of Siderophages in Sputum
TLDR
Enumeration of siderophages in sputum appears to be a simple, noninvasive, inexpensive cytochemical technique well suited to preliminary assessment of the adverse effects of air pollution on the lungs in large, population-based studies, especially in developing countries.
NSC109268 potentiates cisplatin-induced cell death in a p53-independent manner
TLDR
It is demonstrated that NSC109268 enhances sensitivity of ovarian cancer 2008 cells to cisplatin independent of p53, which is believed to be a critical role in DNA damage-induced apoptosis.
