We have explored CD44 (a hyaluronan (HA) receptor) interaction with a Na(+)-H(+) exchanger (NHE1) and hyaluronidase-2 (Hyal-2) during HA-induced cellular signaling in human breast tumor cells (MDA-MB-231 cell line). Immunological analyses demonstrate that CD44s (standard form) and two signaling molecules (NHE1 and Hyal-2) are closely associated in a complex(More)
In this study we have examined CD44 (a hyaluronan (HA) receptor) interaction with a RhoA-specific guanine nucleotide exchange factor (p115RhoGEF) in human metastatic breast tumor cells (MDA-MB-231 cell line). Immunoprecipitation and immunoblot analyses indicate that both CD44 and p115RhoGEF are expressed in MDA-MB-231 cells and that these two proteins are(More)
In this study we have examined the interaction of CD44 (a major hyaluronan (HA) receptor) with a RhoA-specific guanine nucleotide exchange factor (leukemia-associated RhoGEF (LARG)) in human head and neck squamous carcinoma cells (HNSCC-HSC-3 cell line). Immunoprecipitation and immunoblot analyses indicate that CD44 and the LARG protein are expressed in(More)
In this study we have investigated hyaluronan (HA)-CD44 interaction with protein kinase N-gamma (PKNgamma), a small GTPase (Rac1)-activated serine/threonine kinase in human keratinocytes. By using a variety of biochemical and molecular biological techniques, we have determined that CD44 and PKNgamma kinase (molecular mass approximately 120 kDa) are(More)
OBJECTIVE Preeclampsia is reportedly accompanied by increased plasma lipid peroxidation. However, to date the assays that have been applied to measure lipid peroxides have been relatively nonspecific. A highly specific high-performance lipid chromatographic-chemiluminescence technique was used here to measure lipid hydroperoxides in plasma and red blood(More)
In this study we initially examined the interaction between CD44v3 (a hyaluronan (HA) receptor) and Vav2 (a guanine nucleotide exchange factor) in human ovarian tumor cells (SK-OV-3.ipl cell line). Immunological data indicate that both CD44v3 and Vav2 are expressed in SK-OV-3.ipl cells and that these two proteins are physically linked as a complex in vivo.(More)
Preeclampsia is accompanied by high fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality and to a high degree responsible for preterm delivery. The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying this disease remain poorly understood. Accordingly, only few causative or preventive therapeutical strategies are known. One such example for a preventive strategy is the use of(More)

UNLABELLED Extent and rate of absorption of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) from rapidly dispersing (Acesal Extra) and plain tablets (Acesal) relative to reference 1 (plain tablets, Aspirin) and from microcapsuled tablets (Micristin) relative to comparable listed tablets (reference 2, Colfarit) were assessed in 2 single-dose (0.5 g ASA), open, randomized,(More)
