Normal Human Fibroblasts Express Pattern Recognition Receptors for Fungal (1→3)-β-d-Glucans
ABSTRACT Fungal cell wall glucans nonspecifically stimulate various aspects of innate immunity. Glucans are thought to mediate their effects via interaction with membrane receptors on macrophages,Expand

Good quality blastocyst from non-/mono-pronuclear zygote may be used for transfer during IVF
ABSTRACT Although healthy infants have developed from non- and mono-pronuclear zygotes, the transfer of embryos from non- and mono-pronuclear zygotes is not recommended because there are no properExpand

Molecular cloning of chicken metallothionein. Deduction of the complete amino acid sequence and analysis of expression using cloned cDNA.
A cDNA library was constructed using RNA isolated from the livers of chickens which had been treated with zinc. This library was screened with a RNA probe complementary to mouse metallothionein-IExpand

Activation of AP-1 and SP1 correlates with wound growth factor gene expression in glucan-treated human fibroblasts.
Glucan is a natural product immunomodulator that has been reported to enhance early wound repair. The mechanism of glucan-stimulated wound repair was thought to be indirect via macrophage release ofExpand

On the vitellogenesis of Coccinella septempunctata L.: the occurrence of vitellogenin as influenced by artificial diet.
Vitellogenin was prepared from the matured eggs of a predacious beetle Coccinella septempunctata by extraction in 0.4 M NaCl and subsequent precipitation in cold distilled water. Results of theExpand

Patients with polycystic ovary syndrome have successful embryo arrest.
In this retrospective study, we investigate the relationship between embryo arrest and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) during in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET). In this study, 667Expand
