Detection and functional characterisation of the transcription factor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma in lutein cells.
A prominent functional change during differentiation of lutein cells from follicular thecal and granulosa cells is an enhanced production and secretion of progestins. The regulation of this processExpand

Galectin-1, a natural ligand for the receptor-type protein tyrosine phosphatase CD45.
Galectin-1 binds preferentially to N-acetyllactosamine residues on oligosaccharides associated with several cell surface glycoconjugates. In the present work, placental galectin-1 has been identifiedExpand

Involvement of CD2 and CD3 in galectin-1 induced signaling in human Jurkat T-cells.
Galectin-1 (gal-1) a member of the mammalian beta-galactoside-binding proteins recognizes preferentially Galbeta1-4GlcNAc sequences of oligosaccharides associated with several cell surfaceExpand

Effects of N-glycan processing inhibitors on signaling events and induction of apoptosis in galectin-1-stimulated Jurkat T lymphocytes.
To elucidate the role of N-linked glycans in triggering T-cell functions, the effects of the N-glycan processing inhibitors 1-deoxymannojirimycin (1-DMM) and swainsonine (SW) were investigated onExpand

Comparison of batch and column tests for the elution of artificial turf system components.
Synthetic athletic tracks and turf areas for outdoor sporting grounds may release contaminants due to the chemical composition of some components. A primary example is that of zinc from reused scrapExpand

Effects of galectin-1 on regulation of progesterone production in granulosa cells from pig ovaries in vitro.
The detection of galectin-1 (gal-1) in pig granulosa cell lysates by immunoblotting and its cytosolic as well as membrane-associated localization prompted us to study its effects on cellExpand

The immunomodulatory beta-galactoside-specific lectin from mistletoe: partial sequence analysis, cell and tissue binding, and impact on intracellular biosignalling of monocytic leukemia cells.
Nanogram quantities of the beta-galactoside-specific lectin from mistletoe (ML-I) that is composed of two different types of subunits exhibit immunomodulatory potency and enhance cytokine secretionExpand

Are soluble monocyte-derived HLA class II molecules candidates for immunosuppressive activity?
Supernatants of human blood monocyte cultures suppressed PHA responses (IL-2 synthesis, IL-2R expression, DNA synthesis) of autologous and allogeneic lymphocytes. The main suppressive activity wasExpand

Expression of galectin-1, -3 (gal-1, gal-3) and the Thomsen-Friedenreich (TF) antigen in normal, IUGR, preeclamptic and HELLP placentas.
BACKGROUND Galectin-1 (gal-1) and galectin-3 (gal-3), which are members of the mammalian beta-galactoside-binding proteins, recognise preferentially (Galbeta1-4GlcNAc) sequences of several cellExpand

Galectin-1 induced activation of the apoptotic death-receptor pathway in human Jurkat T lymphocytes
Galectin-1 (gal-1), a member of the family of β-galactoside binding proteins, participates in several biological processes such as immunomodulation, cell adhesion, regulation of cell growth andExpand
