BACKGROUND Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-1 is the key transcriptional factor involved in the adaptation process of cells and organisms to hypoxia. Recent findings suggest that HIF-1 plays also a crucial role in inflammatory and infectious diseases. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Using patient skin biopsies, cell culture and murine infection models, HIF-1(More)
Cartilage degeneration in the course of osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with an alteration in chondrocyte metabolism. In order to identify molecules representing putative key regulators for diagnosis and therapeutic intervention, we analyzed gene expression and microRNA (miR) levels in OA and normal knee cartilage using a customized cartilage cDNA array(More)
The distribution of PBP5, the major D,D-carboxypeptidase in Escherichia coli, was mapped by immunolabelling and by visualization of GFP fusion proteins in wild-type cells and in mutants lacking one or more D,D-carboxypeptidases. In addition to being scattered around the lateral envelope, PBP5 was also concentrated at nascent division sites prior to visible(More)
