In vivo, bromide (Br(-)), nitrite (NO(2)(-)), and thiocyanate (SCN(-)) compete for oxidation by eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and H(2)O(2), yielding, respectively, HOBr, NO(2)., and HOSCN. We have recently shown that SCN(-) is the strongly preferred substrate for EPO in vivo and that HOSCN, in contrast with other EPO-generated oxidants and HOCl, is a(More)
Analysis of patient tumors suggests that multiple MAP3 kinases (MAP3Ks) are critical for growth and metastasis of cancer cells. MAP3Ks selectively control the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2), Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), p38 and ERK5 in response to receptor tyrosine kinases and GTPases. We used MDA-MB-231 cells because of(More)
Ichthyophthirius multifiliis is an important fish ectoparasite that often results in significant economic losses to freshwater aquaculture. The search of alternative substances to control infections of I. multifiliis became stringent after malachite green, an effective and widely used chemotherapeutant, is banned on fish farms because of its carcinogenicity(More)
Cancer patients often have an activated clotting system and are at increased risk for venous thrombosis. In the present study, we analyzed tissue factor (TF) expression in 4 different human pancreatic tumor cell lines for the purpose of producing derivative tumors in vivo. We found that 2 of the lines expressed TF and released TF-positive microparticles(More)
Acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) has been regarded as a promising drug target against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) as it catalyzes the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. In this study, 23 novel AHAS inhibitors were identified through molecular docking followed by similarity search. The determined IC(50) values range from 0.385 ± 0.026 μM to(More)
detection of Setaria tundra (Nema-toda: Filarioidea) and an unidentified filarial species in mosquitoes in Germany. To the Editor: Rabies is considered a reemerging zoonosis in China because many cases have been reported in recent years (1). The first case of rabies in Henan Province was reported in 1951. No more than 10 cases were reported per year during(More)
Acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS; EC catalyzes the first common step in branched-chain amino acid biosynthesis. The enzyme is inhibited by several chemical classes of compounds and this inhibition is the basis of action of the sulfonylurea and imidazolinone herbicides. The commercial sulfonylureas contain a pyrimidine or a triazine ring that is(More)
We have investigated the ensemble regularities of the equivalent widths (EWs) of Mg II λ2800 emission line of active galactic nuclei (AGNs), using a uniformly selected sample of 2092 Seyfert 1 galaxies and quasars at 0.45 ≤ z ≤ 0.8 in the spectroscopic data set of Sloan Digital Sky Survey Fourth Data Release. We find a strong correlation between the EW of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the split patterns of the mandibular ramus in sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and examine the related anatomic features that may be associated with these split patterns. PATIENTS AND METHODS The authors designed and implemented a retrospective cohort study and enrolled a sample composed(More)
