Inheritance of partial resistance to Sclerotinia stem rot in soybean.
Little is known about the inheritance of partial resistance in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] to sclerotinia stem rot, caused by the fungal pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) de Bary. ThisExpand

Adoptive immunotherapy using human peripheral blood lymphocytes transferred with RNA encoding Her-2/neu-specific chimeric immune receptor in ovarian cancer xenograft model
The current gene transfer technology for single chain (scFv)-based chimeric immune receptor (CIR) has relied on retrovirus and lentivirus vectors which require a long time to obtain sufficient numberExpand

Caffeine enhances osteoclast differentiation and maturation through p38 MAP kinase/Mitf and DC-STAMP/CtsK and TRAP pathway.
The consumption of caffeine from some common beverages has been associated with low bone mass by inducing urinary calcium loss and deceasing bone mineral density. However, the effect of caffeine onExpand

In vitro and in vivo gene-transferring characteristics of novel cationic lipids, DMKD (O,O'-dimyristyl-N-lysyl aspartate) and DMKE (O,O'-dimyristyl-N-lysyl glutamate).
Abstract We chemically synthesized two different cationic lipids consisting of a core of lysine, two C-14 hydrocarbon chains, and either aspartatic acid or glutamic acid. The lipids were assigned theExpand

Hepatic control elements promote long‐term expression of human coagulation factor IX gene in hydrodynamically transfected mice
Long‐term expression of the delivered target gene is critical for successful gene therapy. Recently, hepatic control region I (HCR I) originating from the apolipoprotein (apo)C‐I pseudogene was shownExpand

Local IL-21 promotes the therapeutic activity of effector T cells by decreasing regulatory T cells within the tumor microenvironment.
The eradication of tumors by the immune system depends on the generation of antigen-specific T cells which can migrate to sites of tumor growth and maintain their effector functions despite localExpand

Inhibitory effect of the salmosin gene transferred by cationic liposomes on the progression of B16BL6 tumors.
Salmosin is a novel disintegrin containing the Arg-Gly-Asp sequence that significantly inhibits platelet aggregation, basic fibroblast growth factor-induced endothelial cell proliferation, and tumorExpand
