BACKGROUND The p14(ARF) protein encoded by the INK4a/ARF locus promotes degradation of the MDM2 protein and thus prevents the MDM2-mediated inhibition of p53. Homozygous deletion of the INK4a/ARF locus is common in human mesothelioma and may result in the loss of p14(ARF) and the inactivation of p53. We designed this study to evaluate the biologic and(More)
To investigate the effect of the pRST98 plasmid, originally isolated from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S. Typhi), on biofilm (BF) formation, we carried out in vitro experiments using S. Typhi, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) and Escherichia coli (E. coli). We further explored the effects of pRST98 in vivo by establishing two(More)
