Our aim was to identify the key proteins involved in the pathogenesis of AAAs. To explore the possible pathogenetic mechanisms involved in AAA, we analyzed by proteomics modifications in plasma proteome of patients with AAA. Therefore, the present study analyzed the soluble plasma proteins using two dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) and mass spectrometry(More)
Accumulation of ubiquitin-positive, tau- and α-synuclein-negative intracellular inclusions of TDP-43 in the central nervous system represents the major hallmark correlated to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobar degeneration with ubiquitin-positive inclusions. Such inclusions have variably been described as amorphous aggregates or more(More)
Cytotoxic gold compounds hold today great promise as new pharmacological agents for treatment of human ovarian carcinoma; yet, their mode of action is still largely unknown. To shed light on the underlying molecular mechanisms, we performed 2D-DIGE analysis to identify differential protein expression in a cisplatin-sensitive human ovarian cancer cell line(More)
Regular physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease, as it probably modifies the balance between free-radical generation and antioxidant activity. On the other hand, however, acute physical activity increases oxygen uptake and leads to a temporary imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species(More)
Using a survey of 800 CEOs in 22 emerging economies we show that CEOs' management styles and philosophy vary with the control rights and involvement of the owning family and founder: CEOs of firms with greater family involvement have more hierarchical management, and feel more accountable to stakeholders such as employees and banks than they do to(More)
DIGE (difference in gel electrophoresis) proteomics is exploited here to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms of two established ruthenium-based antimetastatic agents, namely trans-[tetrachloro (DMSO) (imidazole)ruthenate(III)] (NAMI-A) and [Ru(η(6)-toluene)Cl(2)(PTA)] (RAPTA-T), where PTA is 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane. Following 24h exposure of(More)
Platinum-based chemotherapy is the primary treatment for human ovarian cancer. Overcoming platinum resistance has become a critical issue in the current chemotherapeutic strategies of ovarian cancer as drug resistance is the main reason for treatment failure. Cytotoxic gold compounds hold great promise to reach this goal; however, their modes of action are(More)
A highly sensitive and nonradioactive microplate hybridization assay for the detection of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) product was developed. The PCR product is labelled by adding digoxigenin-dUTP directly to the reaction mixture and, after denaturation, is captured by a microtitre plate coated with an extravidin-linked(More)
We performed a proteomic study to understand how Saccharomyces cerevisiae adapts its metabolism during the exponential growth on three different concentrations of glucose; this information will be necessary to understand yeast carbon metabolism in different environments. We induced a natural diauxic shift by growing yeast cells in glucose restriction thus(More)
