Millet Grains: Nutritional Quality, Processing, and Potential Health Benefits
In the 21st century, climate changes, water scarcity, increasing world population, rising food prices, and other socioeconomic impacts are expected to generate a great threat to agriculture and foodExpand
Identification of nesfatin-1 in human and murine adipose tissue: a novel depot-specific adipokine with increased levels in obesity.
It is reported that nesfatin-1 is a novel depot specific adipokine preferentially produced by sc tissue, with obesity- and food deprivation-regulated expression. Expand
Malicious KGC attacks in certificateless cryptography
This paper proposes new security models that remove the assumption that the malicious KGC starts launching attacks only after it has generated a master public/secret key pair honestly and shows that a class of certificateless encryption and signature schemes proposed previously are insecure. Expand
Cysteine methylation disrupts ubiquitin-chain sensing in NF-κB activation
It is shown that human TAB2 and TAB3, ubiquitin-chain sensory proteins involved in NF-κB signalling, are directly inactivated by enteropathogenic Escherichia coli NleE, a conserved bacterial type-III-secreted effector responsible for blocking host NF- ΚB signalling. Expand
A metabonomic study of hepatitis B-induced liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma by using RP-LC and HILIC coupled with mass spectrometry.
Glycocholic acid, glycochenodeoxycholic Acid, tauroCholic acid and tau rochenodesoxycholics acid were found to be potential biomarkers related to liver cirrhosis, while dihydrosphingosine and phytosphingosines were potential diagnostic biomarkers of HCC. Expand
AbeM, an H+-Coupled Acinetobacter baumannii Multidrug Efflux Pump Belonging to the MATE Family of Transporters
ABSTRACT We cloned a gene, abeM, for a multidrug efflux pump from Acinetobacter baumannii using Escherichia coli as the host. Sequence analysis revealed that AbeM is a member of the MATE family ofExpand
Glycoproteomic Analysis of Prostate Cancer Tissues by SWATH Mass Spectrometry Discovers N-acylethanolamine Acid Amidase and Protein Tyrosine Kinase 7 as Signatures for Tumor Aggressiveness*
The results suggest that N-acylethanolamine acid amidase and protein tyrosine kinase 7 may be used as potential tissue biomarkers to avoid overtreatment of non-aggressive PCa. Expand
VmrA, a member of a novel class of Na(+)-coupled multidrug efflux pumps from Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
Gene vmrA, cloned from Vibrio parahaemolyticus, made Escherichia coli resistant to 4',6-diamino-2-phenylindol, tetraphenylphosphonium chloride, acriflavine, and ethidium bromide and showed Na(+)/drug transporter activity. Expand
The N6-Methyladenosine mRNA Methylase METTL3 Controls Cardiac Homeostasis and Hypertrophy
METTL3-mediated methylation of mRNA on N6-adenosines is identified as a dynamic modification that is enhanced in response to hypertrophic stimuli and is necessary for a normal hypertrophic response in cardiomyocytes. Expand
Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 1 Activation Enhances Gut Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Secretion and Improves Glucose Homeostasis
The present findings suggest that TRPV1 activation–stimulated GLP-1 secretion could be a promising approach for the intervention of diabetes. Expand
