Effects of Panax Ginseng C.A. Meyer saponins on male fertility.
TLDR
It is suggested that ginsenosides may have an effect at different levels of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testis axis. Expand
Structure-activity relationship, conformational and biological studies of temporin L analogues.
TLDR
It is noteworthy that a single amino acid substitution can prevent the antimicrobial activity of TL, making it a lytic peptide presumably due to its self-association. Expand
Physiopathology of the renin-angiotensin system in the ovary.
The present review confirms the existence of the so-called "ovarian-derived prorenin-angiotensin cascade". It also describes the physiopathology of the system and, consequently, its role in theExpand
Anti-Pseudomonas Activity of Frog Skin Antimicrobial Peptides in a Caenorhabditis elegans Infection Model: a Plausible Mode of Action In Vitro and In Vivo
TLDR
In vivo, temporins and esculentins would be attractive molecules as templates for the development of new therapeutics against life-threatening infections and is the first report showing the ability of a CAMP to permeate the microbial membrane within a living organism. Expand
Esculentin 1–21: a linear antimicrobial peptide from frog skin with inhibitory effect on bovine mastitis‐causing bacteria
TLDR
The data suggest Esc(1–21) as an attractive AMP for the future design of new antibiotics to cure mastitis in cattle, along with a plausible mode of action. Expand
The effect of d-amino acid substitution on the selectivity of temporin L towards target cells: identification of a potent anti-Candida peptide.
TLDR
It is revealed that a single l to d amino acid substitution can preserve strong anti-Candida activity of [Pro(3)]TL, without giving a toxic effect towards human cells. Expand
Esculentin‐1b(1–18) – a membrane‐active antimicrobial peptide that synergizes with antibiotics and modifies the expression level of a limited number of proteins in Escherichia coli
TLDR
This is the first report on the effects of an antimicrobial peptide from frog skin on the proteome of its bacterial target, and underscores the fact that the bacterial membrane is the major target for the killing mechanism of Esc(1–18), rather than intracellular processes. Expand
Relationship between autoimmune thyroid disease Rand Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
Down's patients have been shown to develop a form of Alzheimer's after 50 years of age, and high blood levels of antithyroid antibodies are also present in a significant percentage of these cases, and the physiopathological relationship regarding this association is discussed. Expand
Fluorescence and electron microscopy methods for exploring antimicrobial peptides mode(s) of action.
TLDR
Fluorescence/electron microscopy techniques represent a valid tool to get insight into the damage caused by these molecules on the morphology and membrane structure of the target cell, and an overview of some microscopic methodologies to address this issue is presented. Expand
Latex allergy. History, diagnosis and prevention.
TLDR
The subject of this review is to understand the importance in reducing the prevalence of latex allergy: reducing exposure, using appropriate work practices, training and educating workers, monitoring symptoms and substituting non latex products when appropriate. Expand
