Tazarotene-induced gene 2 (TIG2), a novel retinoid-responsive gene in skin.
Retinoids exert their biologic effects through two families of nuclear receptors, retinoic acid receptors (RARs) and retinoid X receptors (RXRs), which belong to the superfamily of steroid/thyroidExpand

Stress-responsive indole-3-acetic acid biosynthesis by Azospirillum brasilense SM and its ability to modulate plant growth.
Abstract Plant growth promotion by Azospirillum brasilense SM has been attributed to its indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) production. Analysis of IAA biosynthesis by this strain under nutrient stresses,Expand

An investigation of lymphatic vessels in the feline dental pulp.
The existence of lymphatic vessels in the dental pulp has been a matter of continuing controversy. We have now used light microscopy to examine semithin transverse sections of perfusion-fixedExpand

An ipdC gene knock-out of Azospirillum brasilense strain SM and its implications on indole-3-acetic acid biosynthesis and plant growth promotion
The indole-3-pyruvate decarboxylase gene (ipdC), coding for a key enzyme of the indole-3-pyruvic acid pathway of IAA biosynthesis in Azospirillum brasilense SM was functionally disrupted in aExpand

Organization of the ipdC region regulates IAA levels in different Azospirillum brasilense strains: molecular and functional analysis of ipdC in strain SM.
Presence of the indole-3-pyruvic acid pathway (IPyA) of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) biosynthesis was demonstrated by identifying the ipdC gene encoding indole-3-pyruvate decarboxylase (IPDC) inExpand

Negative regulation of two hyperproliferative keratinocyte differentiation markers by a retinoic acid receptor-specific retinoid: insight into the mechanism of retinoid action in psoriasis.
Retinoids down-regulate the expression of metalloproteinases, cytokines, and other genes involved in cell proliferation and inflammation. Tazarotene (AGN 190168), a retinoic acid receptorExpand

Targeted engineering of Azospirillum brasilense SM with indole acetamide pathway for indoleacetic acid over-expression.
Rhizospheric bacterial strains are known to produce indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) through different pathways, and such IAA may be beneficial to plants at low concentrations. IAA biosynthesis by aExpand

Interodontoblastic collagen (von Korff fibers) and circumpulpal dentin formation: an ultrathin serial section study in the cat.
The collagenous fibers of von Korff pass from the dentin matrix between the odontoblasts into the dental pulp. Although collagen fibrils are known to be present between odontoblasts, the existence ofExpand
