Silver-resistant mutants were selected by stepwise exposure of silver-susceptible clinical strains of Escherichia coli, two of which did not contain any plasmids, to either silver nitrate or silver sulfadiazine. These mutants showed complete cross-resistance to both compounds. They showed low-level cross-resistance to cephalosporins and HgCl2 but not to(More)
Matrikines are important components of tumor microenvironments that integrate communication between extracellular matricies and membrane-bound receptors thereby regulating cellular behaviors. One such matrikine that is differentially expressed in cancer microenvironments is the extracellular matrix protein lumican; however its precise role in cancer remains(More)
FK506-binding protein 51 (FKBP51) is one of the most important regulators in the GR-mediated stress response, and we previously demonstrated that loss of FKBP5 arrests adipogenesis and renders mice resistant to diet-induced obesity (DIO). However, the exact role of FKBP5 in the process of adipocyte differentiation under hypoxic conditions (the common(More)
