Olfactory transduction begins with the binding of an odorous molecule to a protein receptor—odorant receptor—on the cell surface of olfactory neuron. Odorant receptors are encoded by a large gene family belonging to the superfamily of G-protein-coupled, seven-transmembrane-domain receptors. Since the identification of the receptor gene family in 1991, a(More)
AbstractAim:RNA interference (RNAi) has been proposed as a potential treatment for cancer, but the lack of cellular targets limits its use in cancer gene therapy. No current technology has achieved direct tumor-specific gene silencing using RNAi. In the present study we attempt to develop a tumor-specific RNAi system using the human telomerase reverse(More)
Although 15-lipoxygenase has not been purified from cultured human keratinocytes nor has cDNA coding for the protein been isolated from this source, this enzyme activity is implied by the finding of its stereospecific product in in vitro experiments. Based on two primer pairs derived from human reticulocyte 15-lipoxygenase cDNA, we detected approximately(More)
