The combined use of Mag-indo-1 probe and laser confocal UV-microspectrofluorometry allowed us to investigate the spatial and temporal dynamic changes of the Mg2+ variations in human tracheal gland (HTG) cells at the single cell level. Stimulation of HTG cells with either bradykinin, ouabain or extracellular high Mg2+ concentrations (up to 10 mM) induced(More)
This study documents a difference between cystic fibrosis human (CF-HTG) and normal human (HTG) tracheal gland cells: the ability of histamine to induce an increase of intracellular free calcium concentration [Ca2+]i was abnormally reduced in CF-HTG cells. The magnitude of the [Ca2+]i peak rise in response to histamine is smaller in CF-HTG cells than in HTG(More)
N-terminally truncated recombinant 68-kDa human topoisomerase (topo) I exhibits the same DNA-driving activities as the wild-type protein. In the present study, Raman and circular dichroism techniques were employed for detailed structural characterization of the 68-kDa human topo I and its transformations induced by the suicide sequence-specific(More)
The molecular and ionic mechanisms responsible for the regulation of mucus exocytosis in human airway gland cells remain poorly defined. To determine whether dynamic changes of intracellular free Ca2+ concentration [Ca2+]i can promote different exocytotic responses, we monitored dynamic changes in [Ca2+]i and secretory granule (SG) exocytosis in individual(More)
BACKGROUND ELISA-BP180 values and direct immunofluorescence (DIF) are prognostic factors for relapse after treatment cessation in bullous pemphigoid (BP). OBJECTIVE To determine the relevance of ELISA-BP230 antibodies for predicting relapse 6 months after treatment cessation. METHODS We retrospectively selected patients with BP and available data from(More)
