OBJECTIVE To correlate apoptosis of cultured human granulosa-lutein cells (GL cells) with the outcome of IVF (embryo fragmentation and pregnancy rate) and to study the effect of insulin and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) on apoptosis. DESIGN In vitro assays. SETTING University laboratory and private IVF center. PATIENT(S) Eighty-one women(More)
The GalNAcbeta1-4GlcNAc determinant (LdN) occurs in some human and bovine glycoconjugates and also in lower vertebrates and invertebrates. It has been found in unsubstituted as well as terminally substituted forms at the distal end of conjugated glycans, but it has not been reported previously at truly internal positions of polylactosamine chains. Here, we(More)
ZntA, a bacterial zinc-transporting P-type ATPase, is homologous to two human ATPases mutated in Menkes and Wilson diseases. To explore the roles of the bacterial ATPase residues homologous to those involved in the human diseases, we have introduced several point mutations into ZntA. The mutants P401L, D628A and P634L correspond to the Wilson disease(More)
