The heterogeneity of serum lipoproteins (excluding very low density (VLDL) and intermediate density (IDL) lipoproteins) and that of lipoproteins secreted by HepG2 cells has been studied by immunoblot analysis of the apolipoprotein composition of the particles separated by polyacrylamide gradient gel electrophoresis (GGE) under nondenaturing conditions. The… (More)
BACKGROUND Progressive aging- and inflammation-associated fibrosis effectively remodels the extracellular matrix (ECM) to increase prostate tissue stiffness and reduce urethral flexibility, resulting in urinary flow obstruction and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). In the current study, we sought to test whether senescence-accelerated mouse prone (SAMP)6… (More)
" GABA-A receptor subunit expression in hypoglossal motoneurons during pregnancy " The goal is to test whether GABA-A epsilon subunit expression is increased in hypoglossal motoneurons during pregnancy to protect increased neurosteroid levels.
In a study of the fatty acid composition of erythrocyte membrane phospholipids in Friedreich's ataxia, a lower percentage of linoleic acid in phosphatidylcholine was demonstrated. An enzyme involving the exchange of lipids between plasma and erythrocyte membrane, lecithin: cholesteryl acyltransferase (LCAT) was also studied. It was found that the LCAT… (More)
