Intracellular Events in the “Selective” Transport of Lipoprotein-derived Cholesteryl Esters*
The current study utilizes human, apoE-free high density lipoprotein reconstituted with a highly specific fluorescent-cholesteryl ester probe to define the initial steps and regulatory sitesExpand

Human granulosa cells use high density lipoprotein cholesterol for steroidogenesis.
This study examines the ability of human high density lipoproteins (HDL3) to deliver cholesteryl esters to human granulosa cells and describes the selective cholesterol pathway by which this occurs.Expand

Genghis Khan (Gek) as a putative effector for Drosophila Cdc42 and regulator of actin polymerization.
The small GTPases Cdc42 and Rac regulate a variety of biological processes, including actin polymerization, cell proliferation, and JNK/mitogen-activated protein kinase activation, conceivably viaExpand

In vivo stimulation of granulopoiesis by recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.
Osmotic pumps containing Escherichia coli-derived recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) were attached to indwelling jugular vein catheters and implanted subcutaneouslyExpand

Cholesterol uptake by the 'selective' pathway of ovarian granulosa cells: early intracellular events.
Although the 'selective' pathway is a major cholesteryl ester (CE) uptake pathway used by steroidogenic cells, essentially nothing is known about the itinerary of the CE once it is extracted fromExpand

Characterization of apoB, E receptor function in the luteinized ovary.
Recent findings from this laboratory have led to the suggestion that the hormone-producing cells of the rat luteinized ovary in situ may obtain a large share of low density lipoprotein (LDL)Expand

Effect of okadaic acid on hepatocyte structure and function.
The aim of this study with rat hepatocytes was to describe the effect of okadaic acid (OKA) (a potent and specific inhibitor of protein phosphatases) on the biosynthesis, processing and/or secretionExpand

Previously, we designed a ribozyme that targets the H-ras oncogene at the 12th codon mutation site (Chang et al., 1997). Ribozymes have antisense molecule and site-specific ribonuclease potential. InExpand

Higher genetic susceptibility to inflammation in mild disease activity of systemic lupus erythematosus
In order to test the hypothesis that stratification of Mexican Modification of the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (MEX-SLEDAI) simplifies the genetic study of SLE, we evaluatedExpand

A neurovascular transmission model for acupuncture-induced nitric oxide.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles into the body to reduce pain or induce anesthesia. More broadly, acupuncture is a family of procedures involving the stimulation of anatomicalExpand
