Ripening and senescence are the ultimate phases in the developmental events of fruits that result in the expression of the quality characteristics inherent to the fruit. Although it is difficult to demarcate a dividing point between ripening and senescence, the former can be designated as the quality-developing phase, whereas the latter predominantly(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia. Interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF3) is a transcription factor that plays an important role in the immune response to viral infection via the IRF3/IFN-β signaling pathway. Controversial data exist regarding the role of IRF3 in immune cell(More)
Phospholipase D alpha (PLD, EC 3.1.4.4)) is a key enzyme involved in membrane deterioration that occurs during fruit ripening and senescence. The biochemical and molecular characteristics of PLD was studied in strawberry (Fragaria ananassa Duch) fruits, which are non-climacteric fruits. PLD activity was primarily associated with the mitochondrial and(More)
Neurodegeneration is considered one of the possible complications of high fat diet (HFD) induced obesity. Much evidence has shown the close relationship between HFD and dementia at comparatively later stage of neuronal injury. It is so far not clear that the initial events of neuronal injury resulting from HFD and obesity. In the present research, obese(More)
Osteopontin (OPN) is a multifunctional protein involved in various pathophysiological processes. However, the role of OPN in Pseudomonas aeruginosa-related sepsis is not yet clear. Here, we found that OPN expression was elevated in plasma and spleen samples from P. aeruginosa-infected mice. To determine the function of OPN in sepsis, we used wild-type (WT)(More)
