In Brassica napus, suppression of the key biosynthetic enzyme UDP-glucose:sinapic acid glucosyltransferase (UGT84A9) inhibits the biosynthesis of sinapine (sinapoylcholine), the major phenolic component of seeds. Based on the accumulation kinetics of a total of 158 compounds (110 secondary and 48 primary metabolites), we investigated how suppression of the(More)
A biosensor detecting estrogens, progestogens, and androgens in complex samples and in a single step is described. Three Arxula adeninivorans yeast strains were created, each strain producing a different recombinant human hormone receptor and a different fluorescent reporter protein. These strains were then mixed to create G1212/YRC102-hHR-fluo, the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM We evaluated the diagnostic performance of a newly-launched magnetic bead-based multiplex immunoassay panel including cancer, apoptotic, immunological and angiogenesis biomarkers for differential diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Serum samples of 106 individuals comprising of 35 patients with CRC (23 colon cancer,(More)
This study describes the development of a bioassay to detect the presence of progesterone and progesterone-like molecules in wastewater samples. The basis of the bioassay is the integration of the human progesterone receptor gene into the yeast Arxula adeninivorans for the constitutive synthesis of the receptor. After incubation, binding of the analyte to(More)
Multiple factors contribute to the development and progression of breast cancer. Markers of tumor growth and invasion, cell death, immune activation, and angiogenesis can be assessed in parallel by a novel multiplex immunoassay panel. The diagnostic performance of a multiplex cancer biomarker magnetic bead panel comprising 24 tumor associated parameters was(More)
