Transforming growth factor-beta inhibits proliferation and maturation of cultured guinea pig gastric pit cells.
We studied the effects of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) on guinea pig gastric mucous cells, cultured in serum-free conditions. Electron microscopy showed that most cells were pre-pitExpand

Enhanced gap junction intercellular communication inhibits catabolic and pro-inflammatory responses in tenocytes against heat stress
Elevation of tendon core temperature during severe activity is well known. However, its effects on tenocyte function have not been studied in detail. The present study tested a hypothesis that heatExpand
