BACKGROUND Retinoic acid analogues, called retinoids, have shown promise in clinical trials in preventing breast and ovarian cancers. Classic retinoids bind to retinoic acid receptors, which regulate cell growth. Some novel retinoids, such as fenretinide, i.e., N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)retinamide (4-HPR), induce apoptosis through retinoic acid(More)
Recombinant DNA technology has revolutionized biomedical research with continual innovations advancing the speed and throughput of molecular biology. Nearly all these tools, however, are reliant on ​ Escherichia coli​ as a host organism, and its lengthy growth rate increasingly dominates experimental time. Here we report the development of ​ Vibrio(More)
Using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and a highly sensitive silver stain, specific proteins in adult male and female rat brain were examined. Based on previous studies, the preoptic medial nucleus (POM) of the hypothalamus served as the area of interest, with the parietal cortex acting as control. A significant difference between the sexes was found in(More)
