PRODUCTION OF ALPHA AMYLASE FROM A RANDOMLY INDUCED MUTANT STRAIN OF BACILLUS AMYLOLIQUEFACIENS AND ITS APPLICATION AS A DESIZER IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
The present study is concerned with the improvement of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain UNG-16 for alpha amylase production. The bacterial culture was exposed to UV irradiation at 1.6×10 2 J/m 2 /SExpand
Systemic elastin degradation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Background Development of emphysema and vascular stiffness in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may be due to a common mechanism of susceptibility to pulmonary and systemic elastinExpand
Association of MMP - 12 polymorphisms with severe and very severe COPD: A case control study of MMPs - 1, 9 and 12 in a European population
BackgroundGenetic factors play a role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but are poorly understood. A number of candidate genes have been proposed on the basis of the pathogenesis ofExpand
Crosstalk between p38, Hsp25 and Akt in spinal motor neurons after sciatic nerve injury.
The p38 stress-activated protein kinase pathway is involved in regulation of phosphorylation of Hsp25, which in turn regulates actin filament dynamic in non-neuronal cells. We report that p38, Hsp25Expand
Unravelling the twists and turns of the serpinopathies
Members of the serine protease inhibitor (serpin) superfamily are found in all branches of life and play an important role in the regulation of enzymes involved in proteolytic cascades. Mutants ofExpand
Blood fibrinogen as a biomarker of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Background Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a multicomponent condition that is characterised by airflow obstruction that is not fully reversible and is a major global cause ofExpand
Matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12) SNP affects MMP activity, lung macrophage infiltration and protects against emphysema in COPD
Background Recent genetic and animal studies have implicated matrix metalloproteinase-12 (MMP-12) in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It has previously been shownExpand
Complications of titanium cranioplasty—a retrospective analysis of 174 patients
BackgroundTitanium cranioplasty (TC) has been associated with high complication rates, but abundant data are lacking. We aimed to determine the incidence and type of complications following TC andExpand
Solitary fibrous tumour of the spinal cord
Abstract We report an intramedullary primary solitary fibrous tumour of the cervical spinal cord in a 33-year-old man. The tumour predominantly consisted of monomorphic spindle cells with a storiformExpand
