Mechanisms of anti-influenza activity of surfactant proteins A and D: comparison with serum collectins.
The present study provides the first direct comparison of anti-influenza A virus (IAV) activities of the collectins surfactant protein (SP) A and SP-D, mannose-binding lectin (MBL), and conglutinin.Expand

The potential of recombinant surfactant protein D therapy to reduce inflammation in neonatal chronic lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and emphysema
By lowering surface tension at the air-water interface in the surfactant deficient premature lung, exogenous surfactant replacement therapy for neonatal respiratory distress syndrome has been highlyExpand

Porphyromonas gingivalis mutY is involved in the repair of oxidative stress-induced DNA mispairing.
The ability for DNA mismatch repair, after oxidative stress-induced DNA damage, is critical for the persistence of Porphyromonas gingivalis in the inflammatory environment of the periodontal pocket.Expand

Developmental roles of Drosophila tRNA processing endonuclease RNase ZL as revealed with a conditional rescue system.
Drosophila RNase Z(L) (dRNaseZ) belongs to a family of endoribonucleases with a major role in tRNA 3'-end processing. The biochemical function of RNase Z(L) is conserved from yeast to human. Here weExpand
