Interleukin-6 (IL6) is produced by different cell types, including monocytes and fibroblasts. We show that recombinant human IL6 (rhIL6) and chick fibroblast conditioned medium stimulate plasma fibronectin (PFn) and PFn mRNA production by cultured chick hepatocytes in a dose-dependent manner. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) treatment of fibroblast cultures induces(More)
We report the sequence of 8.1 kb of DNA containing the 3' end of one and seven other complete intronless globin genes from the YWVZ/7B locus of the dipteran Chironomus thummi thummi. One of these (ctt-v) appears to be a pseudogene by virtue of a premature termination codon, whereas the others encode apparently functional globin polypeptides. taken together(More)
We determined that exposure of cultured lung fibroblasts (HEL-299) to recombinant human interleukin-6 (0-400 ng/ml) resulted in a dose- and time-dependent increase in secreted and cell lysate PAI-1 and total tPA levels (maximal increase of 2.6-fold and 1.7-fold, respectively). Specificity of this response was indicated when increases in PAI-1 levels were(More)
The threat of possible malicious activities that can be executed by adversaries impedes the rapid deployment of wireless networks. Researchers and scientists have rendered various mechanisms in order to preclude or at least mitigate such activities. Many of these strategies necessitate or presume the presence of a trusted authority to actualize their(More)
Mobile wireless networks have fascinating characteristics of rapid deployment and network connectivity anywhere and anytime. Due to their very nature of being mobile, grievous security issues may arise, for which some homogeneous solutions have already been proposed. However, each node may have its own security requirements depending on the available(More)
We isolated and sequenced a 432 bp cDNA to cAT-III, that encoded 115 nucleotides of 5' untranslated sequence, a 17 amino acid long signal peptide and residues 1-88 of the mature protein, and used it to prepare a probe for measuring and correlating the developmental changes of steady-state cAT-III mRNA levels with known changes in antigen levels.(More)
Security and privacy threats in technological environment are great hindrances to use latest technologies for our benefits. Such threats also exist in RFID systems which are currently utilized to a great extent in ubiquitous communication. These systems can also work in combination with cellular networks to control user's physical objects in a secure way(More)
