The increasing applications of engineered nanomaterials nowadays have elevated the potential of human exposure through various routes including inhalation, skin penetration and digestion. To date there is scarce information on a quantitative description of the interactions between nanoparticles (NPs) and cell surfaces and the detrimental effects from the(More)
Protein kinase C (PKC) isotypes have been implicated in a number of key steps during gametogenesis, fertilization, and early development. The 11-member family of PKC isotypes, many with different cofactor requirements for activation, can provide for differential activation of the specific kinases. In addition the enrichment of particular PKC isotypes to(More)
This study examined the effects of different-sized nanoparticles on potential cytotoxicity in intestinal epithelia. Three sizes of hematite nanoparticles were used for the study at a 10 ppm concentration: 17, 53, and, 100 nm. Results indicate that, of the hematite nanoparticles tested, 17 nm was more toxic to the epithelial integrity than 53 or 100 nm. In(More)
In both mammals and fruit flies, casein kinase I has been shown to regulate the circadian phosphorylation of the period protein (PER). This phosphorylation regulates the timing of PER's nuclear accumulation and decline, and it is necessary for the generation of circadian rhythms. In Drosophila melanogaster, mutations affecting a casein kinase I (CKI)(More)
In the somatic cell, the mitotic spindle apparatus is centrosomal, and several isoforms of protein kinase C (PKC) have been associated with the mitotic spindle, but their role in stabilizing the mitotic spindle is still unclear. Other protein kinases such as, glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) have also been shown to be associated with the mitotic spindle(More)
