Activation of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) triggers immune and inflammatory events by sensing endogenous danger signals as well as invading pathogens and contributes to the development of chronic inflammatory diseases. In this study, we investigated effect of 1-palmitoyl-2-(5-keto-6-octenedioyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (KOdiA-PC), an oxidized(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) can be used to predict the spread of cancer to distant sites, to monitor the clinical response to therapy and to predict patient survival. The currently used EpCAM antibody-mediated identification of CTCs may lead to false negative results due to the low level or absence of EpCAM expression in several types of cancer, thus(More)
Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs, also called germline stem cells) are self-renewing unipotent stem cells that produce differentiating germ cells in the testis. SSCs can be isolated from the testis and cultured in vitro for long-term periods in the presence of feeder cells (often mouse embryonic fibroblasts). However, the maintenance of SSC feeder culture(More)
