The enhanced metabolism of phosphoinositides, which is associated with a wide variety of stimuli and physiological responses, has been studied intensively. Berridge and his collaborators demonstrated that the first measurable reaction following cell membrane receptor activation is a rapid hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2),(More)
The umbilical cord blood derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) contribute to vascular regeneration in experimental models of ischaemia. However, their ability to participate in cardiovascular tissue restoration has not been elucidated yet. We employed a novel coculture system to investigate whether human EPCs have the capacity to integrate into living(More)
We are presenting, in this paper, a simple, easily reproducible and easily tuneable design for home-built birdcage probes inducing a linearly polarised B1 field. A simple tuning method is proposed which preserves the induced field homogeneity that characterises in general the birdcage design. This is achieved by adding two extra rings (link rings) that(More)
