PURPOSE To improve the degree of functional return and sensibility provided by composite tissue allotransplantation, enhanced nerve regeneration is essential. Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans are found in the extracellular matrix of nerves and inhibit regenerating axons after injury. Treatment with chondroitinase to remove chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans(More)
Proacrosin is one of the major proteins found within the acrosomal vesicle of mammalian spermatozoa. Previous work has shown that it binds non-enzymatically and with high affinity to polysulfate groups on zona pellucida glycoproteins (ZPGPs) thereby leading to the hypothesis that at fertilization it functions as a secondary ligand molecule to retain(More)
Resveratrol (RES) is a natural antioxidant found abundantly in grapes, peanuts, and berries, and is known to possess anti-tumorigenic properties. However, there is a noticeable lack of studies on the mechanistic effects of Resveratrol on tumor suppressors. Previous studies from our laboratory have shown the tumor suppressor protein p53 and estrogen(More)
