The number of fully active antibiotic options that treat nosocomial infections due to multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) is extremely limited. Magnolia officinalis, Mahonia bealei, Rabdosia rubescens, Rosa rugosa, Rubus chingii, Scutellaria baicalensis, and Terminalia chebula plant extracts were previously shown to have growth(More)
Undifferentiated bipolar CG-4 cell line oligodendrocytes provide a model system for the O-2A progenitor cell from which oligodendrocytes are derived both in vivo and in vitro. The exchange of neuroblastoma conditioned basal media for basal media causes differentiation of undifferentiated bipolar CG-4 cells into multipolar oligodendrocyte-like cells whilst(More)
The sexually transmitted protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis cytoadheres to vaginal epithelial cells and causes contact-dependent cytotoxicity which, when combined with the normal exfoliation process, leads to erosion of the epithelium, which may allow trichomonads into extracellular matrix and basement membrane sites. Therefore, the association of T. vaginalis(More)
We have isolated and characterized cDNA clones of a gene family (P2) expressed in Oenothera organensis pollen. This family contains approximately six to eight family members and is expressed at high levels only in pollen. The predicted protein sequence from a near full-length cDNA clone shows that the protein products of these genes are at least 38,000(More)
