The small 11-kDa proteins of B19 parvovirus contain three proline-rich regions which conform to consensus Src homology 3 (SH3) ligand sequences present in signaling molecules within the cell. We have shown that the B19 11-kDa proteins specifically interact with the growth factor receptor-binding protein 2 (Grb2) in vitro. Mutation of prolines within one of(More)
The function of the c-Abl protein tyrosine kinase is unknown. The present studies demonstrate that the antimetabolite 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine (ara-C) induces binding of c-Abl and p53. Ara-C treatment of cells that express wild type or a dominant negative, kinase-inactive c-Abl(K-R) was associated with formation of c-Abl-p53 complexes and increased(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous ambulatory analgesia following various surgical procedures is gaining popularity. The purpose of the present paper is to evaluate this form of analgesia following open anterior inguinal hernia repair by way of a pain control infusion pump (PCIP). METHODS Forty-eight consecutive patients scheduled for inguinal hernia repair were(More)

This study was undertaken to assess the antiplaque and anticollagenase properties of bianticollagen membrane (BACM) for use in the guided tissue regeneration (GTR). First, preparing cross-linked collagen membrane (GLCM) from bone collagen by glutaraldehyde and ultraviolet irradiation. Then, the GLCM was coated with tetracycline (TC) delivery device, which(More)
The degradation of dye crystal violet (CV) by Fenton oxidation process was investigated. The UV-Vis spectrogram has shown that CV can be degraded effectively by Fenton oxidation process. Different system variables namely initial H(2)O(2) concentration, initial Fe(2 + ) concentration and reaction temperature, which have effect on the degradation of CV by(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate distribution and composition of collagen Types I, III and IV in human cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone with immunohistochemical localization and image analysis technique. The results showed that collagen Type I was 78.06% in periodontal ligament, 73.09% in cementum and 30.50% in alveolar bone;(More)
