Role of protein kinase Cδ in transmitting hypoxia signal to HSF and HIF‐1
An hypoxic microenvironment is an important modulator of gene expression in many pathophysiological conditions. In this study, we show a coordinate activation of heat shock transcription factor (HSF)Expand

A beta 25-35 induces presynaptic changes in organotypic hippocampal slice cultures.
Memory loss in Alzheimer's disease (AD) may be related to synaptic defects in damaged hippocampal neurons. We investigated the relationship between amyloid peptide A beta 25-35-induced neuronal deathExpand

Cerebral activation and distribution of inducible hsp110 and hsp70 mRNAs following focal ischemia in rat.
A potential function for inducible heat shock protein 70 (hsp70i) expression in the pathophysiology of ischemic brain has been well documented. The recently cloned hsp70 superfamily member, hsp110,Expand

SUMOylation of nonstructural 5A protein regulates hepatitis C virus replication
Viruses exploit cellular SUMOylation machinery to favour their own propagation. We show that NS5A is a target protein of small ubiquitin‐like modifier (SUMO) and is SUMOylated at lysine residue 348.Expand

The genomic heterogeneity among Mycobacterium terrae complex displayed by sequencing of 16S rRNA and hsp 65 genes.
The species identification within Mycobacterium terrae complex has been known to be very difficult. In this study, the genomic diversity of M. terrae complex with eighteen clinical isolates, whichExpand

Cloning and characterization of muscarinic receptor genes from the nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
To investigate the regulatory mechanism underlying the contractile response in the intestinal smooth muscle of the nile tilapia (Orechromis niloticus), we used pharmacologic and molecular approachesExpand

Cloning and expression analysis of a small HSP26 gene of Pacific abalone (Haliotis discus hannai).
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are evolutionally conserved from micro organism to mammals and play important roles in many biological processes including thermal tolerance. We isolated a homologue ofExpand

Direct application of the PCR restriction analysis method for identifying NTM species in AFB smear-positive respiratory specimens.
The early differentiation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) and the identification of NTM species are crucial for the proper management of patients withExpand

Over-expression of rice leucine-rich repeat protein results in activation of defense response, thereby enhancing resistance to bacterial soft rot in Chinese cabbage
Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum causes soft rot disease in various plants, including Chinese cabbage. The simple extracellular leucine-rich repeat (eLRR) domain proteins have beenExpand
