Homologous-pairing activity of the human DNA-repair proteins Xrcc3⋅Rad51C
The human Xrcc3 protein is involved in the repair of damaged DNA through homologous recombination, in which homologous pairing is a key step. The Rad51 protein is believed to be the only proteinExpand

Region and amino acid residues required for Rad51C binding in the human Xrcc3 protein.
The Xrcc3 protein, which is required for the homologous recombinational repair of damaged DNA, forms a complex with the Rad51C protein in human cells. Mutations in either the Xrcc3 or Rad51C geneExpand

Identification of peptides targeting the surface of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes using a phage display peptide library.
Drastic changes in the plasma membrane of Plasmodium falciparum-infected red blood cells (iRBCs) make the surface of iRBCs distinct from that of the uninfected erythrocyte. To identify small peptidesExpand

Inhibitory activity of human lactoferrin and its peptide on chondroitin sulfate A-, CD36-, and thrombospondin-mediated cytoadherence of plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes.
Lactoferrin (LF), a human serum protein, strongly inhibited the adherence of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes (PE) to immobilized chondroitin sulfate A (CSA)-conjugated albumin at aExpand
