There is increasing evidence that modified phospholipid products of low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation mediate inflammatory processes within vulnerable atherosclerotic lesions. Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2) (Lp-PLA(2)) is present in vulnerable plaque regions where it acts on phospholipid oxidation products to generate the pro-inflammatory(More)
The use of whole cell biotransformations for single and multistep enzyme conversions is gaining widespread application. In this study the naphthalene dioxygenase nah A gene was transferred into Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAC 1R, Escherichia coli JM107 and Pseudomonas putida PpG 277. The effect of ethanol on these genetically engineered Gram-negative bacteria(More)
UNLABELLED Many viruses replicate most efficiently in specific phases of the cell cycle, establishing or exploiting favorable conditions for viral replication, although little is known about the relationship between caliciviruses and the cell cycle. Microarray and Western blot analysis of murine norovirus 1 (MNV-1)-infected cells showed changes in cyclin(More)
