Growth Hormone (GH), Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGFs) and IGF-Binding Proteins which modulate the IGFs' bioavailability (e.g. IGFBP-3, -4, -5), are essential regulators of bone remodeling. In this study, MG-63 human osteosarcoma cells were used as a model system to investigate the mechanism(s) whereby IGF-I and GH control IGFBP-3 gene expression.(More)
In this study, the roles of fungal dehydrin-like proteins in pathogenicity and protection against environmental stresses were investigated in the necrotrophic seed-borne fungus Alternaria brassicicola. Three proteins (called AbDhn1, AbDhn2 and AbDhn3), harbouring the asparagine-proline-arginine (DPR) signature pattern and sharing the characteristic features(More)
In this study, activation of the Jak/Stat signaling pathway was followed upon growth hormone (GH) stimulation, using the rat osteosarcoma cell-line UMR-106.01 that expresses high affinity GH receptors. The results show a GH-induced and sustained phosphorylation of Jak2 and Stat5 on tyrosine residues. The tyrosine phosphorylation status of Jak2 was increased(More)
Glutathione transferases (GSTs) represent an extended family of multifunctional proteins involved in detoxification processes and tolerance to oxidative stress. We thus anticipated that some GSTs could play an essential role in the protection of fungal necrotrophs against plant-derived toxic metabolites and reactive oxygen species that accumulate at the(More)
Early blight is a common disease of Solanaceae crops worldwide. The occurrence of Alternaria spp. was studied during three epidemics on tomato in northwestern Algeria. Alternaria was detected in more than 80 % of the diseased plant samples and accounted for more than 50 % of the total fungal isolates recovered from these samples. Morphological and molecular(More)
