Anisodus luridus hairy root cultures were established to test biological effects of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and ultraviolet ray-B (UV-B) on gene expression, tropane alkaloid (TA) biosynthesis and efflux. The TAs-pathway gene expression was ASA dosage dependant. The expression of PMT, TRI and CYP80F1 showed no significant difference in hairy root cultures(More)
Tissue-specific interactions with specialized high endothelial venules (HEV) direct the homing of lymphocytes from the blood into peripheral lymph nodes, mucosal lymphoid organs, and tissue sites of chronic inflammation. These interactions have been demonstrated in all mammalian species examined and thus appear highly conserved. To assess the degree of(More)
It has long been postulated that normal lymphocyte homing mechanisms help determine the metastatic spread of lymphoid neoplasms. The traffic of normal lymphocytes is controlled in part by the regulated expression of surface receptors for high endothelial venules (HEV), specialized venules that mediate the extravasation of circulating lymphocytes from the(More)
Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is a powerful tool for measuring gene expression levels. Accurate and reproducible results are dependent on the correct choice of reference genes for data normalization. Atropa belladonna is a commercial plant species from which pharmaceutical tropane alkaloids are extracted. In this study, eight candidate reference genes, namely 18S(More)
